Where is my check going and how do I put it on my PayPal card

Where is my check going and how do I put it on my PayPal card

This is an open internet forum.  We are not able to tell you how you chose to receive your refund. You will need to check your TurboTax account.

 

As long as your direct deposit option has a routing number and a bank account number, you can use it for your refund. Please click the TurboTax Help links, listed below, to learn more. 


Which number on my check is the routing number?

Where do I enter my bank's routing or account number?

To check on regular tax refund status via automated phone, call 800-829-1954. (This line has no information on Economic Impact Payments.)

TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.  Many refunds are taking longer during the pandemic. 

 

Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control. TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.

You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 20 of your Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:

If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.
