How long does it take for a refund to be deposited after the IRS releases it?

I spoke to the IRS last week, they advised me my the return would be released on 2/20.  I failed to ask how long it takes after that.

How long does it take for a refund to be deposited after the IRS releases it?

Hi. If you have a deposit date of February 20th, that is the date the IRS is releasing your refund. Contact your bank to find out how long it will take them to receive and process your refund.

Once the IRS releases your refund, when it is deposited into your account will depend on your bank. Can be anywhere from 24-48 hours, depending on your bank.

Wait times will vary, obviously; but expect to receive a refund within about 3 weeks of the time of filing.  The IRS expects 90% of refunds to be processed within 21 days.  After you file, Turbotax's "Track My Refund" will keep you updated on when you can expect it, including what percentage of returns filed on the same date as yours have received refund as of the current date.  For example, I filed on Jan 30, and Turbotax reports that as of today (Feb 8), 9% of returns filed on Jan 30 have received refunds, and I can expect to receive my refund by Feb 20 (per the 21-day window).

That being said, you can track your refund via the links provided below:

"Once your return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control.  TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS."

To track your Federal refund:

To track your state refund:

Additionally, on the IRS site you are also offered the use of an app called IRS2Go

I hope this information helps!

I'm sorry, my refund was released on 3/20 (not 2/20).  How long does it take to be deposited from release date?

@Mofunnnn Since each bank's processing time is different, the best way to find out when your refund will be deposited is to reach out to your bank directly.

Most taxpayers receive their refund within 21 days, but sometimes it can take a bit longer to process or review your return. When was your return accepted? @vincent ?
