The best way to get an accurate direct deposit date is to use the Where's My Refund tool on the IRS website as there is no way to know when the IRS will update to refund approved.
To track your Federal refund, visit the Where’s My Federal Refund? site here: https://www.irs.gov/refunds. Updates are made daily, usually overnight. You may also download the IRS2Go app to check your Federal refund status.
You will need your social security number, filing status, and refund amount in order to track your refund.
