If you're getting a tax refund from the State of Illinois, you can choose to receive it on a debit card.

Taxpayers who use the Department of Revenue's "web file" site can receive any refund on a Visa debit card.

The option has been added to help families who may not have a traditional checking or savings accounts.

The Department of Revenue said the debit card option helps them avoid paying check-cashing fees.
