why was my return not direct deposited?

I filed Jan 31 ,14 IRS said it was paid to turbo tax on the 12th of Feb. Turbo tax said I would have it Feb 13. On Feb 14 bank say nothing coming to your account yet. I highly advise you don't ever use turbo tax. [Profanity Removed] liers!!!!
  • Same here when will I get my refund
  • See the info below.

TurboTax does not receive any refunds from the IRS.   If you chose to pay your TT fees out of your Federal refund (i.e., the "refund processing service"), that is handled by Santa Barbara Tax Products Group (SBTPG).  SBTPG uses one of 2 banks to receive your refund--Sunrise Banks, N.A. of St. Paul, Minnesota or Citizen's Banking Company of Sandusky, Ohio.   That bank then deducts the TT fees, then it forwards your refund to your bank account.

Here's how you can speak to the folks at SBTPG:

They are open 5AM-6PM Pacific M-F, and 7AM-4PM Pacific on Saturday.

When you phone the live taxpayer number, follow these steps:

When prompted, press 1 for English.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
