Question

I closed the bank account in which I was to receive my direct deposit tax refund. How will I get my refund money?

Answer

If you were set up for a direct deposit of your refund and your bank account closed before the funds were direct deposited, your bank will return the funds to the IRS. The IRS will then issue you a paper check, resulting in a tax refund delay of up to 10 weeks.
