The IRS estimates that about 86 million taxpayers chose direct deposit to receive their refunds in 2015. Though you still have the option to receive a check, there are several good reasons why direct deposit is your best option:
- You’ll get your refund faster. By electronically filing your taxes and choosing direct deposit, you’ll get the fastest turnaround on your tax refund.
- It’s more secure. Identity theft and check fraud are on the rise and paper checks can go awry. Direct deposit sends your refund directly to your account.
- You have more options. You can opt to have your refund split between up to three checking, savings, and certain retirement, health, and education accounts.
