The "x" are filled in automatically by TurboTax when you have not entered a bank account. You should leave them as they do not in any way affect your tax return.

Thanks for answering.  I am doing this return for an elderly neighbor and I don't know (or want to know) her banking info.  I want to print the return with direct deposit info blank so she can fill in her own info.

There is no alternative. If you enter her bank account in TurboTax then it will be printed out.

 

If you do not enter the bank account in TurboTax then it will be printed out with "x".

TurboTax does not have access to that information.

If you kept a copy of your tax return, or if you can bring it up on your computer, look down to where it says REFUND line 21 (b&d).  If this area is blank you did not request a direct deposit.
