My greendot card rejected my return because my husbands name was primary. They rejected it yesterday(feb 1) and so i called the irs and they said they have not received it yet. (feb 2nd) because i know we're getting a paper check but i want to know how long that will take. One irs lady said it takes the bank 30 days to send the money back and then after the 30 days they will send our paper check, and the second irs lady said that we should receive it in 3-4 weeks from this friday(feb 3rd). Has this happened to anybody else? If so how long did it take?

Same thing happened to me. The bank rejected the tax refund for the same reason. It was supposed to be deposited on Feb. 8th. The bank said they rejected it back to the IRS on Feb 8th. I called IRS every day after that and finally today (Feb 17th) the bank said they rec'd it and will be sending a check out on February 27th, which is still 10 more days. Have you got yours back yet?

No. I called SBBT and they are mailing it to me this week. The IRS still have no record of anything. So I should receive it no later than this Saturday or next Monday.

The samething happened to me with my greendot card. Customer service with greendot said that it was all the IRS fault something about the batch that was sent was bad and they rejected it. I can't even get thought to an IRS person so what am I so suppose to do. I want to talk to someone from the irs and i am not getting any luck. My return was supposed to be deposited yesterday and they said if not deposited by the 2/9/2015 then they will look further into the problem. Can anyone assist me?

So, change your W-4 withholding so that you don't give the Feds too much of your money throughout the year, and you won't have this issue next year expecting a big refund. Keep as much of your money as you can per pay period! Why give them too much of YOUR money throughout the year, just to get a huge refund at the end?

KEEP as much of your money in the first place!

How does that work when calculating child credit, childcare, student loan interest etc. I get a few thousands back because of that, not because I overpay taxes.

The IRS Withhokding Calculator provides fields for inputing child care credits and other adjustments to income.

If you get a refund you are overpaying your tax bill

So your taxes are clearly not based on your income alone. All these other things such as student loan interest, child care costs, the number of kids you have etc all matters when it comes to withholding federal taxes?
