  • Depending where you filed them it normally takes 8-14 days. They usually give an estimated return date as well.

  • If you e-file and there is nothing wrong they should come back in two weeks and the direct deposit only on fridays. its better to call for refund status they give an exact date.

  • It is usually quicker to get the refund with direct deposit. I would say from what I remember it takes around 3 weeks (assuming you filed electronically) but could be a little longer.

  • You should get it Feb 4th. Here is the calendar.

    Mine comes in tomorrow also but remember your bank can also hold it until Monday in some cases, depending on who you bank with.

  • It's usually pretty quick. I always check mine on and click on 'Where's My Refund'. Hope this helps!

  • I'm getting mine as a direct deposit Thursday night/Friday morning. Same as every year.

  • It's typically on Friday. FYI though, a friend of mine works for the IRS and told me they don't actually start processing anything until February 1st. That might well play a part in when you get your refund since you filed in January.
