Getting ready to file your 2019 taxes (2/4)
Number 2: Get Ready For Your Refund
(This is the second in a series of posts that will help you get ready to file your 2019 taxes)
Combining direct deposit with electronic filing is the fastest way for you to get your refund. When your refund is deposited directly into your bank account, there’s no reason to worry about a lost, stolen or undeliverable refund check.
Different factors can affect your refund. Be careful not to count on getting a refund by a certain date, especially when making major purchases or paying other financial obligations. If you claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit, the IRS cannot issue refunds before mid-February. See IRS.gov/Refunds for more information.
