My return was never deposited, where is it?

Once you've confirmed your return has been accepted, you can begin to track your refund. The IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, although some require additional time. Please see below for more information on tracking your refund:

·         There is also an app:

Here is the general timeline of e-filed returns:

Transmission > Acceptance > Processing > Approval > Refund.


After acceptance, but before processing the status may not be available. If you contact the government or try look up your refund status while your return is still pending, don't be surprised if they tell you "no record found." This is normal; until the government starts reviewing and processing your return, they won't have any record of it.
