I requested direct deposit and didn’t get it, what do I do now?
Well, there must have been a problem with the way the form was filled out. Usually it is an error with the routing number, account number was incorrect, account was closed, if money was owed to another state agency it may have been intercepted or simply a miscalculation on your Kentucky state return tax form and they adjusted the refund request.
If my return was correct, how long does it take to get my direct deposit refund?
If the return was indeed filled correctly then, the direct deposit should be in your account within 7 to 10 business days. Usually direct deposit is 1 to 2 weeks faster than if you had requested a check to be sent. If all of this time has passed and you still don’t have your refund then, check with your financial institution to make sure the refund really went into your account.
