    They send it to the account you put for direct deposit on the 2019 return if you've already filed. If not it goes into the one on 2018. They may have a form to change account info, but I haven't heard of it before. Normally if the account is no longer active it bounces back to the IRS and they issue a check to the address they have on file.

    If you want a refund deposited to more than one account use Form 8888

    You don't.

    The IRS is going to direct deposit your $2400 stimulus for a joint return into the ONE bank account that was listed on your 2019 tax return.

    If you did not list a bank account on that return (either because you got a paper check refund or you did not get a refund), then the IRS will mail ONE paper check payable to BOTH of you in the amount of $2400 to the mailing address listed on your 2019 tax return.

    Likewise if the bank account has been closed and the direct deposit bounces back, they will mail you one check.

    AFTER you receive payment you can give/transfer $1200 of the money to her.

    You don't.   The IRS uses the information on the filed return.

    If you filed a joint return how do you know who gets what % of the tax return?  You income is combined from the IRS perspective.

    Why don't you agree between you who gets what % of the return, have the refund deposited into one account then one of you provide the other with their portion of the return?
