  • If you file early and electronically then generally speaking a return will take approximately 14 business days. It actually depends on a lot of things but that is the rule of thumb. If you have things that "kick it out" for further inspection, it will take much longe, because it is reveiwed by an individual person who often has to have it reveiwed by a superior. Some are at that point sent back and the filer told there are arrors and to please reveiw and correct. Errors are pointed out.

    The closer to April 15th you wait the longer it takes to process and get a return simply because of the number that have to be processed.

  • Thank you ladies! This helps put my mind at a little ease maybe I will hear something soon. I actually filed the 26th, but since I had my school papers in they did not start them until the 14th. So maybe I will hear something back next week!

  • I filed on the 4th and it's still processing with no estimated date yet. :-( It's never taken this long for us.
