  • Select Direct Deposit on your tax form (or select the direct deposit option if filing online) to receive your refund on your Netspend Prepaid Card when filing your taxes.

  • Enter your Netspend Prepaid Card Routing number and Account number in the designated fields, and choose “Checking” as the account type.
