What do I do if I have an error on my tax form?
Contact Customer Support at 800-847-4836 if you believe you have an error on your tax form such as:
- Your social security number is incorrect.
- You moved and need to update an address.
- Your tax form was submitted to the state of your secondary residence, rather than your primary address.
- The amount reported on the Form 1099 is incorrect.
Can I invest my tax refund on my Thrivent Mutual Funds account?
Yes. The IRS allows taxpayers to elect to have their federal income tax refunds directly deposited into an account with a bank or other financial institution. In an effort to encourage more savings for retirement, the IRS permits taxpayers to split the refund into multiple (up to three) accounts, including IRAs and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (CESAs).
Taxpayers electing to directly deposit their federal income tax refund will use IRS Form 1040 (if directing to only one account) or IRS Form 8888 (if spliting refund between two or three different accounts). When directing the federal income tax refund to a Thrivent Mutual Fund account, you should use the following information when completing the election.
- Routing Number: 011000028
- Account Number: LU51-0XX-XXXXX
- Account Type: Savings
For mutual funds, replace the X's with your fund account number as it appears on your Mutual Fund Year-End statement. For example, if your fund and account number on your statement is 17-1234567890, then you would indicate LU51-017-1234567890 either on IRS Form 1040 or IRS Form 8888.
For direct deposits into an IRA, the contribution will be treated as a current year contribution. If the contribution was received by Thrivent Mutual Funds prior to your tax filing due date (without regard to extensions), and you want it to be treated as a prior year contribution, you must contact Thrivent Mutual Funds after you receive your transaction confirmation.
The instructions for IRS Form 8888 detail waht the IRS will do if the refund is increased or decreased due to a math error or refund offset. If the deposit into one or more of your accounts is cahnged and the account is subject to contribution limits (such as IRA), you may need to correct your contribution or file an amended return.
