Now, more than ever, you need a reliable, fast, secure, contact-less way to receive your money. The best and fastest way to get your tax refund is to have it directly deposited for free into your bank account. It is simple, safe and secure. Combining direct deposit with electronic filing is the fastest way to receive your tax refund. There’s no chance of it going uncashed, getting lost, stolen, or destroyed.
Direct deposit is easy to use. Just select it as your refund method through your tax software and type in your account number and bank’s routing number. Or, tell your tax preparer you want direct deposit. You can even use direct deposit if you still file by paper. Be sure to double check your entry to avoid errors. The bank’s routing number and your account number can be located on the bottom of your checks.
Don’t have a check available to locate your routing and account number? A routing number identifies the location of the bank’s branch where you opened your account. The bank’s routing number and your account number can be located by signing into your online banking or mobile banking account.
