The 2006 tax year is the first time the IRS allows taxpayers to have their tax refund split among up to three different places. The IRS states that you can have your refund split (and directly deposited) into any of the following accounts you have:
If you want your 2006 income tax refund deposited directly into one financial account, you do not need to file IRS Form 8888. You just need to fill in the proper lines on your Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ. Be sure to include your bank account number and correct routing number.
