Can I buy iBonds electronically with a tax refund?
Unfortunately I am going to get a tax refund for 2012. However, it appears I can buy more than the otherwise $10K iBond limit with my tax refund, so maybe I've out dumbed myself (again).
I'd rather have the iBonds added to my Treasury Direct account, and I've read they discontinued paper bonds in 2010-11. But everything I read at the TD and TurboTax sites still seems to say they will send paper bonds, I'd prefer electronic.
So I'm confused. Anyone know for sure?
