Series I Savings Bonds are a safe and convenient way to set aside some extra money from your federal tax refund.
You can designate up to $5,000 of your federal refund towards up to 3 Series I bonds, which will be mailed to the address on the your return. We'll give you the option to purchase bonds when you get to the How would you like to receive your federal refund? screen (in the File section).
When you get to that screen, select Split my refund between multiple accounts or U.S. savings bonds and select Continue and follow the instructions.
