Want Your Tax Refund Fast – Choose
Direct Deposit is the fastest, safest way to receive your tax refund.
An e-filed tax return means a fast refund. Taxpayers who combine e-file
and Direct Deposit can get their refunds in as few as 10 days.
Here are four reasons more than 73 million taxpayers chose Direct
Deposit in 2010:
- Security Thousands of paper checks are returned to
the IRS by the U.S. Post Office every year as undeliverable mail. Direct
Deposit eliminates the possibility of your refund check being lost,
stolen or returned to the IRS as undeliverable.
- Convenience The money goes directly into your bank
account. You won’t have to make a special trip to the bank to deposit
the money yourself.
- Ease When you’re preparing your return; simply
follow the instructions on your return. Make sure you enter the correct
bank account and bank routing numbers on your tax form and you’ll
receive your refund quicker than ever.
- Options You can deposit your refund into multiple
accounts. With the split refund option, taxpayers can divide their
refunds among as many as three checking or savings accounts and up to
three different U.S. financial institutions. Use IRS Form 8888,
Allocation of Refund (Including Savings Bond Purchases), to divide your
refund. A word of caution: Some financial institutions do not allow a
joint refund to be deposited into an individual account. Check with your
bank or other financial institution to make sure your Direct Deposit
will be accepted.
For more information about direct deposit of your tax refund and the
split refund option, check the instructions for your tax form. Helpful
tips are also available in IRS Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. To
get a copy of Publication 17 or Form 8888, visit the IRS Forms and
Publications section at http://www.irs.gov
or call 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
