IRS support staff will not discuss the status of a refund unless it has gone beyond their 21-day published objective.
“Where’s My Refund?” includes a tracker that displays your tax return’s progress through three stages:
1. Return Received 2. Refund Approved 3. Refund Sent
Return progress can be updated by IRS on a daily basis instead of weekly as in previous years, and the Refund Sent date will be actual instead of estimated.
Overall acceptance-to-deposit timeframe is expected to be similar to last year for tax returns that are not pulled for review.
If you do not want to have your refund direct-deposited you can receive your refund check by mail, but last year these took a week longer to receive.
Is my refund guaranteed to be on time?
