Question: what should irs refund status say if I requested direct deposit?
Currenlty is says that it was “mailed” out on March 17th, 2006. Does this mean that they aren’t depositing it? Rather, I have to wait longer to get it by mail?
Answer: If it was “mailed” on 03-17-2006, then they have mailed a check. Possible reasons are that for some reason the bank wouldn’t accept the direct deposit (not likely), or you may have transposed a number in your bank routing number and/or account number (could be likely) or the IRS goofed (very likely). If you don’t get your check by next Friday, 03-24-2006, I’d give the IRS a call; contact numbers can be found at www.irs.gov.
