Direct Deposit Saves Time

by | Jan 30, 2016 | IRS, Tax Season

Did you know that having your tax refund direct deposited into your bank account can reduce your wait time to receive your money?

Your refund should only be deposited directly into accounts that are in your own name, your spouse’s name or both if it is a joint account.

Whether you file electronically or on paper, direct deposit gives you access to your refund faster than a paper check.

Direct deposit also avoids the possibility that your check could be lost or stolen or returned to the IRS as undeliverable.

Phone Scams

Aggressive and threatening phone calls by criminals impersonating IRS agents remains an ongoing threat to taxpayers. The IRS has seen a surge of phone scams in recent months. Scam artists threaten police arrest, deportation, license revocation and other things. The IRS reminds taxpayers to guard against all sorts of con games that often arise during filing season.


Taxpayers need to be on guard against fake emails or websites looking to steal personal information. The IRS will not send you an email about a bill or refund. Don’t click on an email claiming to be from the IRS that takes you by surprise. Always be wary of clicking on strange emails and websites. They may be scams to steal your personal information.
