Faster tax refund when you e-file, direct deposit

If you want to get your 2017 tax refund as quickly as possible, don’t use snail mail. The IRS asks taxpayers to electronically file 2017 tax returns, and to sign up for direct deposit. Doing this greatly reduces the possibility of lost, stolen or undeliverable refund checks.

Direct deposit also saves money. The IRS reports that U.S. taxpayers pay more than $1 for every paper refund check issued, but only a dime for each direct deposit.
