  • I think last year we got state in less than a week and federal in about 2 weeks.

  • 2 weeks. We just did ours Tues night, got approved yesterday, and they should be in our account by the 6th.

  • We just filed ours Jan. 18th. We got our state check last week and federal is suppose to be delivered tomorrow. So anywhere from 2-3 weeks for federal.

  • The IRS has a schedule that shows the date you file and the date you are likely to receive your refund. It is 8 to 10 days and that is if you direct deposit. Don't forget to ask your bank how they handle DD's from the IRS. I have seen some banks hold their deposits till Monday's, even tho they say they don't.

    No program will make this process go faster, this is an IRS thing. You can track your refund at and then click on "Where's my refund?" . Hope this helps ya!
