1040 - US ELF: Direct deposit of tax preparer fees

Alerts and notices

Can tax preparers enter their bank account information on Screen Bank, located under the General folder, to collect fees from the taxpayer's refund?

No. The IRS does not allow for a taxpayer's refund (or part of their refund) to be direct deposited into an account that is not in the taxpayer's name.
