In an effort to combat fraud and identity theft, the IRS implemented procedures effective January 2015 that limit the number of refunds electronically deposited into a single financial account or pre-paid debit card to three.

The fourth and subsequent refunds automatically will convert to a paper refund check and be mailed to the taxpayer.

See the IRS Direct Deposit Limits topic for more information.
