INDIANAPOLIS — Many H&R Block and TurboTax customers in Indiana said they received their second stimulus checks Wednesday after some experienced delays earlier in the week.
Ashley Gahagan of Indianapolis contacted WRTV Investigates after her second stimulus payment went into the wrong account, which was only used for fees when she filed her 2019 taxes with H&R Block.
“It’s crazy to me,” Gahagan said Tuesday. “It’s so irresponsible.”
Gahagan and other taxpayers told WRTV the problem was fixed, and their money was deposited into the correct bank accounts Wednesday.
“The IRS Get My Payment website may display an account number you don’t recognize. If you took a Refund Transfer, it may be reflecting that account number. Check your 2019 return to confirm,” said H&R Block in a statement on Jan. 4. “But don’t worry – we have sent these payments on to the method you chose for Refund Transfer: direct deposit, check or Emerald Card. The money should be there by the end of the day.”
TurboTax customers in Indiana received this message Wednesday.
The Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Treasury Department began sending checks last week. However, many H&R Block customers using the IRS Get My Payment website have reported their money was sent to an account number they do not recognize.
People with questions should contact H&R Block at 1-800-HRBLOCK and @HRBlockAnswers on Twitter.
