¿Qué pasa si entro a la información bancaria incorrecta?
IMPORTANT NOTE: Once a return is accepted, you cannot edit the banking information that will be used to process your refund or amount due. Once it is accepted, the IRS and/or state will begin to process your return and this process generally cannot be stopped. If you wish, you can contact your state or the IRS directly to find out if there is anything that you can do. However, once the IRS or state has your return and is processing it, TaxSlayer cannot transmit any new data to them for processing or stop the current return from being processed.
If you are getting a refund: If you are expecting a refund, the IRS and/or your state(s) will first attempt to deposit your refund based on the banking information you provided. If the information that was entered was invalid or incorrect, the bank should refuse this attempted deposit. At that point, the IRS and/or state(s) should then issue a check to you for the amount of your refund. The check will generally be mailed to the mailing address that you listed on your return when it was filed.
If you have an amount due (federal only*): The IRS will attempt to make the withdrawal based on the banking information that you provided. If the account information is incorrect, the bank should refuse the debit. At that point, you must pay your amount due by mailing in your payment. To do this, you simply need to print just the payment voucher and mail it, along with your payment, to the address that is provided on the voucher.
*State amounts due cannot be paid by electronic funds transfer (EFT: having the money debitted from your bank account). If you have an amount due to the state, you must always print and mail in your payment voucher with your payment.
