Finally, the Bureau urges alien taxpayers to use e-Filing during the filing period. If there is a tax refund, the taxpayer can designate an account at a financial institution (including post office) of the alien taxpayer, his or her spouse or one of the declared dependents to apply for a "direct deposit of refund" to save time and reduce the inconvenience of collecting tax refund checks.
