In order to deliver money as quickly as possible to those who need it, the IRS is sending stimulus payments to eligible taxpayers who filed a tax return in either 2019 or 2018 and chose to receive their refund via direct deposit into their checking account. These taxpayers will automatically have their stimulus payment deposited into the account they received their refund.
We have not yet received confirmation from the IRS on whether they will be putting stimulus payments on prepaid debit cards. However, we have noticed that the IRS has started depositing stimulus payments on some prepaid debit cards for taxpayers that chose to receive their refund through that method in tax year 2019 or 2018. If you received your refund on a prepaid debit card in tax year 2019 or 2018, here is what you need to know:
- I have access to my debit card: If you have access to your debit card (most people), there is nothing more you need to do. If the IRS deposits a stimulus payment onto your prepaid debit card, you will be able to immediately use the stimulus funds upon deposit.
- I don’t have access to my debit card: If you received a notification that you will be receiving your stimulus payment from the IRS on your prepaid debit card and no longer have access to it, we will have information coming shortly. We encourage you to visit this site, where we are continually updating with the latest information and guidance. We know everyone is anxious to get their stimulus money and we are committed to helping our customers get access to their stimulus payment as fast as possible.

First you are saying you don’t know, then you are saying that you “noticed “ some people are getting deposits. Which is it? I don’t understand why you are unable to tell us for sure if our deposit will be put onto our Turbo Card. This seems ridiculous to me. You have been working with the IRS to set up a portal for people who don’t file their taxes; however, you can’t ask a simple question of the IRS when it comes to the Turbo Card that you pushed so hard for me to get in the first place. I have been a loyal, long term customer but I will never use TurboTax again.You can’t even respond to email. I tried calling three times and whoever is on your phone picks up and then hangs up. What kind of service is that? How is that tolerated? My only recourse is to wait until irs puts the link up to put new deposit information on, then never use TT again. #Lividinohio
