GOOD GRIEF ... THE INK IS NOT YET DRY ON THAT LAW ... NOW THE REAL WORK BEGINS. THE IRS MUST NOW APPLY THE LAW AS BEST THEY CAN WITH A DIMINISHED STAFF DURING THIS VIRUS SITUATION. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE PATIENT as the checks could take a month or more to be dispersed.
Turbotax has this site with up to date info that is known at this time ... check it and the IRS site every couple of days for the latest information :
You're lucky to get the stimulus check
You should be lucky to get the payment..now everyone is so greedy and needs it now on a card. relax and wait an extra week You should be ok..
But the irs site will not have the answer to if turbo tax cards are considered direct deposit. You could tell people if the turbo card is considered direct deposit by intuit/turbotax. That would answer the question with out liability.
That's not what people are worried about? They have said the stimulus checks were getting sent to the same dd as your return so people who filed with tt are simply trying to see if they as adults need to handle anything on there behalf like calling or filing paper work with another bank account or a mailing address. The goverment said they wanted to handle this quickly so people are trying to have there part done so the IRS can handle that. If the turbo card doesn't accept the depoist it will get shot back and then the IRS will then have to cut a check and mail it out. Some people are really struggling and anxious to be able to get some since of life back to normalcy. So people are necessarily stressing the money they are jist trying to make sure there responsibilities are taken care of.
See I filed my taxes, it was direct deposited onto a turbo card and then I moved. I wanted to know if that would be the same bank info for the stimulus deposit. In the meantime, I will file a change of address but I figured that would take ages to process. I did have my mail forwarded but the irs doesn't forward checks.
It's a fair question to ask on the Turbo Tax question forum.
I'm actually interested in this as well. I too have the prepaid Visa card from filing through TurboTax and I'd like to know if I would be getting the 2020 Stimulus relief check direct deposited to the same card? If not will there be any way to change how we get it? I also moved after I filed my taxes, and received it. I did call the IRS to change my address about 2 weeks ago and it went through.
When will you give us an option to change to direct deposit? I do not want to wait 4 months to receive my paper stimulus check. I feel like an option to change to direct deposit on turbo tax should’ve been offered already.
On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin indicated that the direct deposit would occur "in three weeks". So figure mid-April
the expectation is that the paper checks will flow 2-3 weeks behind the direct deposit. Further, they think they have direct deposit information on 80% of the people who will be receiving rebates.
In 2008, it literally took MONTHS to get the money in everyone's hands. It was probably all checks back then,
