Tax Refund Direct Deposit Information

The IRS makes it easy for you to direct deposit your tax refund into your credit union savings or checking accounts when filing your federal taxes. Direct deposit is safer, easier and you get the money faster than having a check sent by postal mail. NEVER direct your tax refund to someone else's account

To direct deposit your refund, go to the refund portion of your tax return:

  • Enter UVA Community Credit Union's Routing Number: 251480181
  • Select the account type: checking or savings
  • Enter your account number
  • Double check that you've typed the account number correctly
  • Go to to check the status of your refund
  • Verify that your ACH deposit amount is what you expected  

Path Act Delays Some Refunds

Beginning in 2017, the IRS holds refunds on tax returns claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit until mid-February. Under the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, the IRS must hold the entire refund – even the portion not associated with the EITC and ACTC – until at least February 15. The IRS cautions taxpayers that these refunds may not arrive in bank accounts or on debit cards until late February (assuming there are no processing issues with the tax return and the taxpayer chose direct deposit). Through holding refunds the IRS has more time to detect and prevent fraud, to protect legitimate taxpayers. 

2021 Child Tax Credit Changes

Changes to the Child Tax Credit helped many families receive advance payment of this important tax credit in 2021. For those who received advance payments, half of the Child Tax Credit was paid in advance, and half is claimed on your 2021 Income Tax Return. Currently these changes will apply to tax year 2021 only. Learn more about the Advance Child Tax Credit

To be eligible for the Child Tax Credit, the child must be your dependent who is under the age of 17. Other eligibility criteria applies, visit the IRS's website to see if your dependent qualifies for the Child Tax Credit.
