How long after your refund processed date will my money be on my card?

After refund

TurboTax only gives you an estimated date.   Only the IRS/state controls your refund.


First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted: 



Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control.  TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.


You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 35a of your 2021 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:   


To track your state refund:    




If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.

Once the IRS releases the refund it can take each bank in the chain can take up to 5 business days to process and release the funds.  

Check 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 your state’s status.


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


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.
