Can tax refunds for other people be direct deposited to my Green Dot account?
No, others cannot direct their refund to your card or account. In accordance with IRS guidelines, you can direct your refund to your card or account; you cannot direct your refund to someone else’s card or account. If we receive a tax refund intended for individuals other than the cardholder, the refund will be rejected and/or your card may be blocked, pending additional verification.
