Partially this. A friend on the Navy base got an email saying they had recieved her tax return statement, BUT they are not allowed to process anything until the 30th, they can calculate everything but you are not allowed the money until the 30th. Call them OP.

Quoting Christina1285:

are you sure it's your refund? they select a certain few to go through early but everyone else has to wait til jan 30.

Of course you can spend it. It is your tax return in the amount you were supposed to get back.

It doesn't matter if it went in earlier then anticipated. The IRS is not going to take your refund back. It would be different if they refunded more then expected, but that is not the case.

It is no different if it goes in your bank now or in two weeks. Go ahead and spend it.

don't touch it until Feb 1.  I would recommend making some calls to the IRS too.
