 Neither TurboTax nor the IRS checks the validity of the routing number as part of the e-file submission process. When the IRS is ready to pay your refund, if they find that your bank account number or routing number are invalid, they will automatically mail you a check. This usually takes an additional 3 to 4 weeks.
