What do I put in when asked for bank name for bluebird direct deposit?

You should have received a direct deposit form that would have the bank name, account and routing numbers when you initially signed up.  If you did not, then you can go to www.bluebird.com and log into your account and pull one up.  However, when looking at their FAQs on how to deposit from tax refund, it shows American Express Centurion Bank as the bank name.

Once your return has been accepted (or mailed), it's too late to change direct deposit bank account information or how you will receive your refund. If the info you provided is for a closed or invalid account, the government will just mail you a refund check. The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on February 12, 2021.

  • If your return is rejected, open your return in TurboTax and go through the File section again to update your bank account before re-submitting your return with any applicable corrected information.
  • If accepted, you'll get your refund check in the mail or will be direct deposited if you listed a valid bank account or selected the Turbo Visa Debit card when you filed.

@nisbd24    Not sure what you mean by a "swift" code.   When you are in the FILE section of the TurboTax software you can enter your bank account number and routing number in order to get your refund by direct deposit.  If you enter incorrect banking information the refund will be sent back to the IRS and then the IRS will issue a check to the address on your tax return.

The IRS will not DD or wire refunds to foreign accounts ... your ONLY option is a check in the mail if you do not have a US bank account or debit card which allows IRS deposits.

Are you getting a deposit FROM a foreign country?   Ask your bank for the wire transfer number.

Good catch ... not an IRS refund but money from a foreign source ... again ask your bank for the info needed.
