For those tax filers who have not yet filed a 2019 tax return, TurboTax recommends that they file their 2019 tax return now to get their tax refund and stimulus check quickly. This will ensure that the IRS has the most current tax filing and direct deposit information, which they will use to determine individual stimulus check amounts.

 

If you will be receiving a stimulus check but you have not filed taxes in 2018 or 2019, the TurboTax Stimulus Registration product was designed to help millions easily file a minimum tax return with the IRS.  The tax return will have the information needed to determine stimulus eligibility.

 

If you have filed taxes in 2018 or 2019 but want to change your direct deposit information for the stimulus check, see this statement in this TurboTax Help.

 

“In the coming weeks, the Treasury plans to develop a web-based portal for you to provide your banking information to the IRS online so that you can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail.”

 

This portal is not yet available.

What about people who HAVE filed a tax return and owe the IRS? The option to input direct deposit information doesn't show up. The portal that turbo tax has isn't for these type of people.

These links may help explain and guide you through the process.

 

The free TurboTax Stimulus Registration product is designed to help you register with the IRS if you’re not required to file a tax return, to get your stimulus money.

The product is only for people who normally don’t need to file a return.

The product doesn’t work if you:

  • Already filed your taxes with TurboTax and need to add/update your direct deposit info.
  • Filed your taxes with someone else.

 

From <https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/tax-topics/help/who-can-use-the-turbotax-stimulus-registration-pro...>

 

 

 

https://turbotax.intuit.com/stimulus-check/ link to stimulus registration (SR).  It is very important that you uses this link that says register now if you don't need to file taxes this year.  Otherwise, you will not be able to E-file a zero return. It also has the calculator.

 

The IRS says it is working on developing a web-based system for people to give the government their direct-deposit information. Keep checking www.irs.gov/coronavirus for more details on this.

 

The IRS is in the process of creating a site

 

If you only want to change your Direct Deposit Information

 

The Treasury is expected to shortly announce an online portal where direct deposit information can be supplied to the IRS. Here is what you should do: 

 

Go to  http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/economic-impact-payments-what-you-need-to-know to see if they have set up the online portal. (This article will be updated with the web address once it’s available.)

what about people who OWE the IRS, and paid by check the last two years? There is no portal or way for them to give the IRS their direct deposit information.

You will need to wait for the Treasury to set up the web portal for you to enter the banking information. If you did not have a refund with Direct Deposit, the IRS does not have your banking information.
