How do I remove Pay With My Refund fees in TurboTax Online and change my payment method?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online10291Updated April 15, 2022

If you select Pay with Refund to pay your TurboTax Fees, there’s a $39 processing fee charged by the third-party bank that handles the transaction.

Once your e-filed return is in pending or accepted status, it's too late to remove Pay With My Refund. But if your return is rejected, you have another opportunity to remove Pay with My Refund.

If your e-file return is not pending or accepted, here's how to change your payment method and remove refund processing fees before you e-file:

  1. Sign in to your account and open or continue your return
  2. Select File in the left menu and proceed to the Just...more step screen
  3. On this screen, select Revisit next to You've chosen to deduct your TurboTax fees from your federal refund
  4. Select View Payment Options on the next screen and select Pay now on the screen after that
  5. Complete payment by entering your credit or debit card information
  6. Continue to the Just...more step screen to make sure the Pay With My Refund has been removed
  7. Step 1 should now show that you paid with your credit or debit card
  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account
  2. Open and continue to your return, if you aren't already signed in
  3. Select the menu icon
  4. Select File
  5. Select You've chosen to deduct your TurboTax fees from your federal refund
  6. Go to and select View payment options
  7. Choose a payment option other than paying with your federal refund
