The overwhelming majority of taxpayers that file an income tax return this year will receive a refund. It is hard to believe that in today’s world, if someone is filing a return and receiving a windfall of money, that they don’t want to have the refund directly deposited into their bank account. Not only will you receive your refund in about 21 days from the time that your return is accepted, which is three weeks ahead of receiving a paper check, it will make certain that your refund is not stolen.
Identity theft has run rampant in the United States. This problem has come up at the Internal Revenue Service in recent years. People are acquiring Social Security Numbers from unsuspecting taxpayers and filing returns that include over inflated claims for refunds. This problem is so bad that the IRS has a special task force that is assigned only to identity theft. In cases where a legitimate return has been filed and an excessive refund has been claimed, the IRS is holding the refund due to the problem of identity theft.
In addition to providing a more secure method of the delivery of your refund, direct deposit can be spread out amongst up to three different accounts. These accounts can be checking, savings, investment or even IRA accounts. There is even an option for you to be able to purchase Savings Bonds issued by the U.S. Government.
As you can see selecting direct deposit is an easy and safe way to have your refund issued to you.
