How long does it take to get my return?

The IRS issues most refunds in about 21 days, although some returns take more time to review. 

If your return was accepted less than 21 days ago, hang in there. It can take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks to go from acceptance to approval. 

Here is the general timeline of e-filed returns:

Transmission > Acceptance > Processing > Approval > Refund.
