This screen shot is from a link someone else shared. I will post it below. But if it is correct the people whose money was direct deposited through Santa Barbara Bank the IRS DOES have your direct deposit information. However if you had a check mailed to you or a debit card issued by Santa Barbara bank they DO NOT have your information and would be mailing a check. At least that is how I read this.
It doesn't matter. if your bank information is on the return, you will receive a direct deposit of your stimulus check to your bank. Santa Barbara Bank will not process your stimulus payment.
We expect to hear a date from the IRS soon. We are all patiently waiting.
I looked on my 2019 return that was filed to the IRS. It is indeed my own personal bank information. I feel co fident the IRS has the information. And yes, I opted to have fees paid via refund.
I had already filled it all out on line it and turbo tax they wanted me to mail it! I did not mail it yet.
When I went to the new link to do it for the stimulus It asked me a few questions but it didn’t give you a way to add the banking info! It just said congrats you filled come back and see if it’s accepted or get an email from us. I did not file taxes in 2018 therefore they wouldn’t have any banking information from then. How will I get my banking info to them?
Can it be added through amending what was sent ?? It just had xxxxx where all the banking info should be on the printed version of my taxes. I know they don’t have my information.
@PilarB I am saying that if you had your fees paid from your refund, it meant that the process involved an intermediary bank. In that case IRS does not have your banking details.
VictorW9, even if our 1040 has our banking information on it? We’re getting conflicting answers from the people who are “Experts” on here. Most say yes the IRS has our info, a couple say no. I don’t think anyone got their stimulus money today so we don’t officially know yet.
I believe you’re correct; there has to be millions of people who are in this situation. Doesn’t seem like any stimulus money went out today, so I suppose all we can do is keep waiting and wishing.
@JLang87 I am just going by the question asked. If you paid your fees from your refund, then IRS does not have your banking details. How this is going to be worked out, is still being processed by the IRS.
The irs will use the information on the forms turbo tax gives with the option to either print or download. If you filed with turbo tax and have the app. You can press the three bars in the top left corner/side of the phone and press tax home just to be on the safe side. Then close it and scroll down the page towards the bottom. There will be 6 or seven lil sections you can choose from and my Docs should be like the third one. Open it and you can see for yourself what routing and accounting # ‘s the irs has on file for you. If it matches you’re in the money. If not hopefully that portal becomes available soon.😬😬😬
