Once you e-file your return and IRS accepts it, then your return is on IRS timetable. There is no way of knowing when IRS will finish processing your return, but you can track your refund on the IRS website. You will not see your refund expected date, on the IRS website, until after IRS approves the refund. For most taxpayers,(9 out of 10), the refund process takes approximately 21 days. If you have dependents that you are claiming this year, then the federal government has implemented the PATH law for those who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC). Due to the passage of the PATH law, the refund process has resulted in longer wait times for those taxpayers, and IRS will not start processing those return until mid-February. For more info on the PATH law, see this webpage: https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tips/irs-tax-return/what-is-the-path-act-and-how-may-it-impact-your-...
