How do I change my refund method?

SOLVEDby TurboTax4187Updated 3 weeks ago

As long as you haven't filed yet (or you e-filed, but got rejected), you can change your refund method.

  1. Open your return in TurboTax
  2. Go to the File section in the left menu
  3. Next to Step 2: Your refund info select Revisit
  4. Choose your desired refund method and select Continue

Unfortunately, once your e-filed return has been accepted or you already mailed it, it's too late to change your refund.

There's one exception: if you chose to apply this year's refund to next year's taxes, you can request a check refund instead.
