Today TaxMama hears from Mike in Pennsylvania who wants to know. “If I did not e-file my federal taxes, can I still get my refund direct-deposited into my bank account? I sent my federal taxes via US mail yesterday.”
It’s a little late to be asking this question, isn’t it? I mean, AFTER you sent off your return.
Anyway, of course you can get your refund deposited directly to your bank account. But only if you told IRS where your bank account is.
Did you fill out the section of your tax return that asks for the banking information?
If you did, and you were very careful about entering the routing numbers correctly, you should be seeing your refund in about 10 – 12 days.
And remember, you can find answers to all kinds of questions about tax refunds and other tax issues, free. Where? Where else?
