Within 21 days, hopefully. My return was accepted on the 14th and I got mine today.

IRS Statement on "Where's My Refund?" Tool

Feb. 14, 2013

The IRS alerted taxpayers and the tax community it is experiencing high traffic on “Where's My Refund?” as more tax returns come in. The heavy volume of refund inquiries means that the IRS anticipates both "Where's My Refund?" on IRS.gov and the refund feature on the IRS2go phone app will have limited availability during busier periods.

Due to the large number of inquiries and to avoid service disruptions, the IRS strongly urges taxpayers to only check on their refunds once a day. IRS systems are only updated once a day, usually overnight, and the same information is available whether on the Internet, IRS2go smartphone app or on IRS toll-free lines. While "Where's My Refund?" is updated nightly, your account will not change that frequently.

The IRS is seeing a good start to the filing season, and tax refunds are being issued timely. Nine out of 10 taxpayers typically receive refunds in less than 21 days when they use e-file with direct deposit.

The IRS expects to see the number of tax returns — and related refund inquiries — steadily increase around the President's Day holiday week.

Here are some tips to help taxpayers with their refund questions:

  • Have the right tax information ready before using any of the IRS refund tools. This includes Social Security number, filing status and refund amount.
  • You don't need to check “Where's My Refund?” more than once a day as your information will not change. 
  • To avoid system delays, the best time to check on refunds is evening and weekends.
  • There is no need to call the IRS about your refund; the telephone service has the same information that is available on “Where’s My Refund?”.

You'll first find out if it's been accepted by the IRS. It can, however, take a few days/few weeks to find out exactly when they'll be depositing your refund money into your account.

They have to look at the return, make sure everything is correct and also need to check for any off-sets.
