A refund check is mailed to the address of record, which is the address provided on the tax return or the result of a permanent address change request submitted after the return is filed. We will send one refund check listing both you and your spouse's names. If you wish to have the refund split and issued in two checks, you must return the uncashed refund check and a copy of your divorce decree showing how the refund is to be allocated.


Tips for next year

To receive your refund more quickly, consider requesting your refund through direct deposit. You can even request that your refund be distributed to separate accounts, such as checking, savings, or retirement accounts. To request this, use Form 8888, Direct Deposit of Refund to More Than One Account (PDF).

Consider filing your taxes electronically. Filing online can help you avoid mistakes and find credits and deductions that you may qualify for. In many cases you can file for free. Learn more about e-file.
