I no longer live in the US and I was working there on my F1 OPT visa, from January till August 2018. I’ve the W2 from my employer.
Will I be eligible to file taxes and claim my return, since I’m not in the US anymore?
I don’t have any bank accounts as I closed it all. If I file for a return, will I be allowed to provide the bank details of my family for the return to be deposited.
Yes, you are still eligible to file taxes and claim a refund if it applies to you.
By the end of 2019, if you had a F-1 visa and stayed in the US for not more than five years, you are considered as a nonresident. (Did you mean to say January till August 2019 instead of 2018? ) As TurboTax does not support the nonresident tax forms 1040-NR, you would need to contact Spintax which is affiliated with TurboTax to assist our non-resident customers.

If you have a tax refund, that refund can only be directly deposited into a US bank located in the US. If you do not have a US bank account, you can provide your foreign mailing address on the tax return so that IRS can mail a check to you.
