Why is it asking me to mail my returns? Does that mean I won’t be direct deposited?

There are several reasons you may not be able to e-file your tax return. Some common reasons are:

  • Some forms may not be finalized
  • Box 1 of your W-2 Form is blank
  • Your tax return contains overrides
  • You have no taxable income.

 

Refer to the TurboTax articles Why can't I e-file my return?

 

You will still get a direct deposit even if you mail your tax return. 

 

Refer to the TurboTax article How do I print and mail my return in TurboTax Online? for additional information.

Direct deposit does work for mailed returns. just takes longer.
