Use direct deposit for quickly, securely getting your refund

The fastest, most secure way to get your tax refund is by setting up direct deposit. It’s more secure than a paper check, which could get stolen. It’s faster since you don’t have to wait for the check to arrive in the mail, or spend time cashing or depositing the check. When you file your taxes, use form 8888. You’ll need your account number and routing number.
