Thanks for the reply, but my state, Illinois, does off the option for Direct Deposit and it is right there on the form above the Paper check option. It is an issue with the TurboTax software itself.

I’ve had a problem with TurboTax for the last couple of years. When completing my returns, I select Direct Deposit for refunds and enter in the appropriate information to do this. Then, I eFile my Federal return and manually (snail mail) my state return. When printing out the state return, it has the box for a Paper Check selected and not the box for Direct Deposit nor does it contain the banking account info. This doesn’t seem right to me. It should have had the Direct Deposit selected and filled out as I had requested and that shows on the Federal return. It appears that the TurboTax software defaults back to a Paper Check when you choose to manually file. I looked for a way to change/edit this information in the software, but could find nothing. I contacted support and they couldn’t find a way to change this within TurboTax itself either. I ended up printing the State return to .PDF and then blanking out the ‘X’ in the box for Printed Check and then handwriting the information for Direct Deposit on the form before mailing it in. It would be much nicer if TurboTax simply maintained the setting for Direct Deposit that I had previously selected. Has anybody else run into this? Any thoughts on this issue?
