Why not use it to open a free checking account at one of the banks? Then you can burn through your refund and close the account when you spend it all.

Not necessarily but possible. There is a larger percentage of people around here who do not utilize banks or credit cards than you might think. It is a cash or barter society that they live in.

hey Konflikt

here's an idea. go to a trusted friend who has a bank account, deposit the check into that account, and assuming your friend has enough in his/her account to cover the check- withdraw the funds right away. just make sure the check is good so your friend doesn't get screwed over.

just a thought
right

pretty judgemental answers....there are many people who do not rely on credit cards, bank accounts, etc. to get through their daily lives, some like my grandparents lost all trust in the banks during the stock crash years ago..I still know many people with excellent jobs who do not have bank/checking accounts...and I just bet they have more cash available, and not through illegal means, then some who sit here and judge...just a thought....

Community Bank cashes income tax refund checks with two forms of ID for 10.00. They also cash state refund checks for the same price and you don't need an account, just 2 forms of id.

You can NOT cash the check by signing it over to someone else and having them deposit it.

Key Bank has in the past, and I do not know if they still do, set special branch banks that will cash those checks without an account. GOOGLE How Do I cash A Tax Refund Check. I have done it.

Good luck - and good question!
