GoBank is neither a paid return preparer nor a tax advisor. All GoBank account holders are urged to consult their own tax advisors and/or return preparers. In accordance with IRS guidelines, you can direct your refund to your account; you cannot direct your refund to someone else's account (except for your spouse if it is a joint refund). If we receive a tax refund intended for an individual other than the cardholder, the refund may be rejected and/or your account may be suspended or closed. Limits apply.
