What bank account is conmected

connected to what for what? 

If you are talking about stimulus direct deposit they will go off what bank account you used on your 2019 tax return. If you updated your bank account info in the get my payment portal back in April with the first stimulus then they will go by that. 


Need more information on your situation. 

Did you file through turbo tax or anyone else and get your return on a pre paid card? 

Did you have a tax refund advance? If you had an advance the bank that advanced you the money will be on your tax return and will reject the stimulus deposit and the IRS will mail you one. 

Again, it all depends on how you filed last year and how you received your tax refund in 2020.

The Community is a public forum, so for privacy reasons, we do not have access to any customer tax data.


If you can still login to your TurboTax account, you should be able to navigate through it to find the banking information that you entered for 2019.


Alternatively, please read the following:


Please look at your copy of your 2019 tax return (you kept one, didn't you?) and look at lines 21b, 21c, and 21d, Lines 21b and 21d are where you will see the banking account information for where your refund (if you had one) was sent.


If you were due a refund and these lines are blank, then the IRS mailed you the refund as a check.


It may be that you used your refund to pay for the services that TurboTax provided. If so, that bank routing number is not to your bank but to a 3rd party bank that received your refund, split out the fees due to TurboTax, and then sent you the balance.


In this last case, you will find your actual banking account information on one of the pages of instructions that accompany your tax return, not on the tax return itself.
