If you received that date from the IRS, that is the date the funds will be released. If you are receiving a check by mail, allow 3-5 days for the check to reach you. If you are receiving direct deposit, you should allow up to 5 days after the deposit date for the check to appear in your account.

Did you get the date of the 26th from the IRS or from TurboTax? If it was from TurboTax, it's simply an estimate. You would need to continue to check the IRS tracker for updates.

So you are saying if you have direct deposit it will take 5 days after the 26th to get the money in the bank but 3-5 days if you are getting a check?

@Lilguy3232  For direct deposit - Once your refund status on the IRS shows "Refund Sent" it can take 1 to 5 business days for the financial institution to deposit funds into your account.

 

Then for a paper check, once your refund status on the IRS shows "Refund Sent" it just depends on USPS how long it takes to be delivered via regular mail.

It wouldn’t take that long. My friend had her refund put in her boyfriend account and Chime returned it back to the IRS because they are a private bank and the check must match the account holder’s name. Long story short, they mailed her a check and it took a week and a half probably less than that. Her refund date was 2/12/2020 and they mailed it out on 02/16/2020 because she saw it on the where’s my refund site and it stated they mailed her a check when see looked on the 16th. Your best bet is to not deal with them any more as far as your taxes. My other friend is currently having problem with them depositing money into her account and they’re not sending her no emails or nothing pertaining to the rejecting her deposits.
