How debit cards work

You can now choose to receive your income tax refund on a debit card. Debit cards:

  • Provide a secure, convenient, and cost effective way for you to
    manage your money.
  • Allow you to avoid check cashing fees.
  • In most instances, there's no charge for using the card to make cash withdrawals or purchases. See the fee schedule.

Once the Tax Department has processed your return, you'll be issued a debit card in the amount of your refund.  

If you and your spouse filed a joint return, each of you will receive separate debit cards in a single envelope.  Each card provides access to the entire amount of the refund.
