Can I deposit my tax refund into someone else's account?

According to the IRS, direct deposits must be made to accounts bearing the taxpayer’s name. Additionally, the refund should also only be deposited into a United States bank or United States bank affiliated accounts that are in the taxpayer’s name. 


If filing a joint return you may deposit the refund into an account with one or both taxpayer’s names’ if it is a joint account. The IRS will also allow you to deposit your refund in up to three different accounts as long as the above requirements are met. You may also want to check with your financial institution to make sure they don’t have any related account rules or limitations.


Note: Beem Filer is not currently supporting direct deposit of your refund into multiple bank accounts.
