The IRS issues over 101 million tax refunds yearly – over 80% via Direct Deposit. The average refund is over $3,000. With such a high volume, it is imperative that financial institutions handle tax refunds with the utmost care to avoid large dollar losses that can be caused by not understanding the unique requirements. These requirements address account number/name matching situations, deceased recipients, refunds posting to incorrect accounts, and refunds as exception items. This session will cover the rights and obligations of the financial institution, accountholder, and tax preparer. Learn how to handle these exceptions correctly to minimize your financial institution’s liability.
