I helped my girlfriend file both her state and federal taxes this year. We 'share' a bank account, but her name is not on the account (the bank currently does not offer joint accounts, otherwise it would be). I entered my account information and submitted both, and they were both accepted.
A few days later, the money was direct deposited into my account, but then a day later it was removed, and I was told by my bank that they couldn't accept the money, as it was in my girlfriend's name.
Will the state (Ohio) and the IRS send the checks by mail, or do we need to contact them to change the account information to try and direct deposit them again?
