Is my refund going to be direct deposited

You can check your direct deposit information at the bottom of your Form 1040. 

To view your 1040 after filing, Sign into TurboTax > Taxes > Tax Timeline Some other things you can do > Download/print (.pdf).

Form 1040- the information regarding your refund is on lines 75-77 and direct deposit is on line 76. a-d).

Once your return has been accepted (or mailed), it's too late to change your bank account in TurboTax for direct deposit.  However, the IRS provides the following remedies:
  • If the return hasn't already posted to their system, you can ask the IRS to stop the direct deposit. You may call them toll-free at 800-829-1040, M - F, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.
  • Generally, if the financial institution recovers the funds and returns them to the IRS, the IRS will send a paper refund check to your last known address on file with the IRS.
  • If you have contacted the financial institution and two weeks have passed with no results, you will need to file Form 3911, Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund, to initiate a trace. This allows the IRS to contact the bank on your behalf to attempt recovery of your refund. Banks are allowed up to 90 days from the date of the initial trace input to respond to our request for information.
  • If funds aren't available or the bank refuses to return the funds, the IRS cannot compel the bank to do so. The case may then become a civil matter between you and the financial institution and/or the owner of the account into which the funds were deposited.
