When will my refund be deposited to my Turbo® Visa® Debit Card?
Once the IRS accepts your tax return, it usually issues refunds within 21 days. The IRS won't start accepting e-filed tax returns until late January. To learn more and for the most up-to-date info from the IRS, visit www.irs.gov/refunds. For information about your state refund, contact your state Department of Revenue.
Remember: You must activate your Turbo® Visa® Debit Card to access the tax refund money that was deposited to it.
Access to refunds may be delayed and/or blocked as a precaution to the rare, but possible, risk of refund-related fraud. If this happens, we may ask you to provide some additional information, including uploading legible ID documents.

I’ve never had one of these cards before so I did in fact receive an email stating my Federal Income Taxes were approved. Tennessee doesn’t have state income tax. I received the card in mail yesterday and did what the letter said to activate it. But, when logged in to it says 0 balance? Just doesn’t make since why they would send me a 0 balance on the card? How will the IRS know to put my return on the card? They made it seem I could start using it immediately after activating the card? @Critter
so lost LoL 😂
I read the pages below I think I understand now. Still weird Turbo Tax would word it’s as if you can start using as soon as you receive ur approval and card? I saw where it says to go to the webpage of the bank to link card to account? Do I need to do that?
thanks 😊 Kelly
