Has anyone else not received their tax refund within 21 days?

We filed our taxes on February 4th and they were accepted the same day. I have checked on the Where's My Refund site and even as of today it still says that it's processing and would receive it within 21 days. Turbo tax says I would receive it by today the 25th. We don't have any special deductions, just one w-2. Has anyone else had this problem? My DH and I weren't sure if we should call the IRS or wait it out. I would appreciate any
advice. Please no bashing.

  • I heard they were running late this year. We filed end of January and got ours weeks ago.

  • It's the IRS...takes forever no matter what the website says. Also, there were times when we filed electronically and asked that our refund be directly deposited into a savings account. That never happened and we didn't get a check until June. Since then we've done our taxes online but asked for a physical check. We feel that it's much easier for the IRS to track you that way. Good luck!
