How long does your taxes come in the mail?

Do you mean how long will it take for a mailed refund check?  From the time the IRS mails it, it will depend entirely upon the U.S. postal system, but 5-10 days seems reasonable.

TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.
