Tax refunds

Posted by on Jan. 24, 2013 at 10:54 AM

I am wondering how long it will take to get tax refunds back this year. I know there is something about the IRS not accepting them until Jan 30. I am planning on filing this weekend.

Real answers only please. I am asking bc I am a single mother (working full time and going to school). My ex does not pay his child support and I rely on that money to help me pay daycare throughout the year. I am just wondering how long it is expected to take this year. Thanks in advance for the response!

IRS website says less than 21 days, after they receive and process your tax return.

 I've heard a couple of things...I have heard not until about March and I have heard a 21 day return. Not sure which one, though.

If you file early it should be about the normal time frame

 If you e-file it usually takes 2-3 weeks.

If you file online and do direct deposit into a bank account or onto a pre-paid debit card,it usually takes about 10-14 days,and I haven't heard it would be any different this year.

If you do Turbo tax they do a direct deposit if you want and its usually only taken two weeks at the most to get it in our account!
