Question

With my federal return accepted and my state return rejected, can I still expect a direct deposit of my federal refund money?

Answer

Yes, the IRS will deposit your federal refund even if your state return was rejected.

However, if you e-filed, you will need to fix the issues in your return and e-file again, or mail in your state return.
