Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Good evening. This is not an uncommon occurrence. Pursuant to the IRS guidelines, if you incorrectly enter an account or routing number and your designated financial institution rejects and returns the deposit to the IRS, the IRS will issue a paper check for that portion of your refund. Generally once the financial institution recovers the funds and returns them to the IRS, the IRS will send a paper check for that refund out to the taxpayer's last known address on file with the IRS. After two weeks have passed with no results, file Form 3911, Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund.
