Amid the current Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the federal government today announced that the federal tax filing deadline will move from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. You can still file now, or anytime through July 15th. Rather than wait for a check, speed things up a bit by getting your refund deposited right onto your Fintwist® Paycard. The process is quick, easy and beneficial to you.
We still do not know what the future holds with this public health crisis. We want you to be prepared to quickly receive any additional government benefits that may be available. You can use the same instructions below to secure additional direct deposits. Get your money quickly—free of touching paper checks and free of densely populated check-cashing stores (and the transportation it takes to get there).
How do I get my tax refund and through direct deposit?
First, you have to get your W2 forms and any other tax forms you might need from all the employers you’ve worked for in the past year. Your employer(s) should send your W2s by January 30th, at the latest. Next, fill out your tax forms, or get a tax professional to do them for you. The only difference now is that you’ll be providing direct deposit information instead of a mailing address for a refund check. This will allow quicker access to your money. Be sure to only provide your account number to trusted tax professionals or processors.
How do I find my direct deposit info for taxes and other government benefits?
You can find your direct deposit info (account number and routing number) through the Fintwist Mobile App or by logging into your account at www.fintwistsolutions.com, click on “Direct Funding.” Or, if you have trouble finding them via app or website, give us a call at 888-265-8228.
