Expect a change in how you get your Louisiana Tax refund check this year.

Instead of a check or a direct deposit to your account, you might be getting a prepaid debit bard. But if you are expecting more than 7 thousand dollars, you will get a check. Chase Bank is handling the debit cards for the state for free. BUT the bank will be charging some fees on the cards.

THE FEES INCLUDE:

A $1.50 CASH WITHDRAWAL FEE AT NON-CHASE ATMS AFTER AN INITIAL FREE WITHDRAWAL.

A 75 CENT FEE FOR TRANSFERRING DEBIT CARD BALANCES TO A NON-CHASE BANK ACCOUNT.

A 25 CENT FEE FOR TRANSACTIONS DENIED FOR INSUFFICIENT FUNDS AFTER AN INITIAL FREE ONE.

$1.50 PER MONTH FOR INACTIVE ACCOUNTS NOT USED AFTER A YEAR.
