How will I get my refund if I don’t have a bank account?

If you don’t have a bank account, the IRS can mail a check to you, although it typically takes several weeks to arrive.

Once you get your check, you may be able to cash it through a check cashing service or a retail store that offers check cashing. You’ll typically pay a flat fee or a percentage of the check amount.
