According to IRS tracking, my refund was sent to my bank on May 1. It is now May 6 and according to my bank no IRS refund has posted or is scheduled to post today. Why?

Once your return has been accepted (received) by the government, they take over the refund status update duties, since they hold the purse strings. The status in TurboTax will remain as "accepted."

Use the IRS Where's My Refund site for the latest word on your federal tax refund, and your state government's refund lookup service for the latest on your state refund.


Does this IRS "Where's My Refund" tool say your funds have actually been sent?

http://www.irs.gov/Refunds


Were you having the refund direct deposited to your bank account directly ?


If the IRS has actually sent the funds, the IRS FAQ page says to allow "up to 5 days" due to variations in bank processing procedures and times.

If so did you enter the correct routing & account number for an ACH transfer ?  Here is how you can see your deposit information:

Your direct deposit information will be at the bottom of your Form 1040.

To view your 1040 after filing, Sign into TurboTax > Taxes > Tax Timeline > Some other things you can do > Download/print (.pdf). 

Please see the following FAQ article below if you entered in the wrong bank account information.

Did you have the TT fees withheld from the federal refund  and then the balance sent to your bank account or debit card ?

If so the refund needs to go from the IRS to the third party bank to your bank account.  This process can take up to 3 business days or more.

The account information was correct.  So i don't understand what the problem is.  If the IRS sent the payment to my bank on May 1.  How long should it take to be deposited into my account?  The payment to Maryland was correctly and timely withdrawn from the same account.
