Refund by Direct Deposit

General Information

You can have your refund electronically deposited into your checking or savings account at your bank or credit union. This method is faster and safer than receiving a check.

If you file a paper return, fill in your routing and account numbers on line 45 of TC-40, Utah Individual Income Tax Return. Use the graphic below to find the routing and account numbers. Be sure to select whether you want your refund deposited into your checking or savings account.

There are certain situations where your refund will be sent by mail even if you requested direct deposit. See Refund By Mail for more information.

Direct deposit example

You can also choose direct deposit if you use Taxpayer Access Point to file your return.

If you find that your deposit information is incorrect after you’ve submitted your return, please contact us immediately. We can delete the deposit information and issue a paper check by mail instead. However, to protect against fraud, we cannot change your direct deposit information unless you bring a signed request to one of our offices and provide identification. Office locations can be found at Office and Walk-in Customer Service Locations.

If you already filed your return and did not choose direct deposit for your refund, we cannot change it.

Direct Deposit into Foreign Account

Federal laws prohibit the Tax Commission from depositing funds into accounts located outside the United States and its territories. Please use a domestic bank account or another refund option.
