Can I deposit a joint tax return into my individual bank account

Yes, for the federal return.

When filing a Married Filing Joint (MFJ) return the IRS allows MFJ refunds to be direct deposited into accounts in your name, your spouse’s name or both (joint account).

However, rules vary by state and financial institution; to be sure, verify with your financial institution if they accept joint refunds into individual accounts.

I've seen comments here, in this forum, of that being denied by the bank

That was the case for me. Did they change that policy this year ?

If both names are attached to the payment then the bank account for deposit must also have both names on the account.

The IRS has no restrictions ... they will try to send the DD to the account you list..   It is the BANK that may have deposit issues so check with your bank.
