who do i contact if bank rejected refund?

I filed jointly with my wife and the bank rejected my refund check because she is not on my account who do I contact to get my refund mailed to my physical address.
  • I have talked to IRS and they say to contact Turbo Tax to see if it is in your bank because you are third party
Since the bank rejected your deposit the IRS (& State) will automatically switch you to receiving a check to the address on your tax return.  The check can take 3 to 4 weeks to arrive.  If you don't receive your check you can contact the IRS, to talk to a live person call 800-829-0582 ext 362

If you need information on a State refund being mailed you can contact your State's Taxing Authority, you can check your State's website for contact information.
  • Ugh. Freaking banks. Thank you for your quick response.
