The IRS issues more than 9 out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days with direct deposit. However, it’s possible your tax return may require additional review and take longer. The easiest way to check your refund status is by using the Where's My Refund link (https://www.irs.gov/refunds). It has the most up to date information available about your refund. The tool is updated no more than once a day so you don’t need to check more often.
Our company or the IRS do not guarantee a specific date that a refund will be deposited into a taxpayer's financial institution account or mailed. Taxpayers should wait at least seven days from the time the electronic return data is acknowledged as accepted by the IRS before checking the status of a refund. To check the status of a refund, call TeleTax at 1-800-829-4477 (toll free) or go to the IRS site to check the status.
