How long does it take to get my tax money back?

If your return has been processing longer than 21 days, you can phone the IRS to see what you can learn about the delay.

IRS:  800-829-1040  hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Mon-Fri

When calling the IRS do not choose the first choice re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line. 

  • First choose your language.  Listen to each menu before making the selection.
  • Then press 2 for "personal income tax".
  • Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".  
  • Then press 4 "for all other questions."
  • Then press 2 "for all other questions."  It should then transfer you to an agent, but there is likely to be a long wait.

I usually use a speakerphone so I can work on something else while waiting.
