CT State Tax Return Debt cards

CT State Tax Return Debt cards

PostBy: qbwebb On: Sat Mar 16, 2013 9:44 am

Just FYI to those of you w/ a CT state tax return, they are issuing annoying debt cards instead of just direct deposit, there is a selection somewhere on the form for direct deposit from what I read online. I entered in my bank info on turbo tax and assumed I would get direct deposit, but the default must be the debt card election. CT's annoying attempt to get people to spend their returns instead of save them, not to mention all of the BS fees associated with the card, I'm sure some state govt fat-cat got a nice chase kickback. If its too late for you, you can set up your account online and do a 1x transfer of your account to your regular checking account, but it's an added PITA, better off just checking on the form direct deposit, and don't rely on tax software to do it for you.

This made me mad enough that now I am going to make sure I am having too little with-held, its not enough I gave the state an interest free loan they have to elect me into a stupid debt card program instead of just issuing the refund. :mad:

I forgot to mention, the envelope the card comes in looks just like the credit card offers I seem to be putting into the shredder everyday, if your expecting a refund make sure you are going through your mail carefully.

I think last year that I was able to withdraw the full funds from my card (I HATE these damn cards) at a Peoples Bank ATM and then I deposited it into my credit union savings account. Very annoying, would much rather just get a check.

I meant to say that I was able to withdraw the funds from that ATM free of any fees. I had to read a lot of fine print to figure out how to get my refund without incurring fees.
