For those who have gotten their federal refund already

What day of the week did it come on? I have been hearing they come on Tuesdays and I have heard Fridays. I know in years past when mine says I will get it by a certain day, it comes the Friday before that day so I was just wondering so I can plan.

  • I think the date shown is if they send it by mail and NOT automatic deposit. Anyway I haven't gotten mine yet, but I expect it to come this Friday even though the irs website says Tuesday of next week.

  • I think they say the 16th because your bank can hold it for a couple days so they dont want you to panic if it doesnt post on that friday!!! The next business day is the 16th...i think.....i want mine before V-day Weekend!!! :)

  • The IRS didn't give me a date, just that chart that gives you a time estimate that if you do it in this time frame then you should receive your refund on Friday of this date. In my experience the IRS always deposits on Friday, that's why I was surprised to have it on Wednesday. So no, they did not say that I would get it on Wednesday.
