Tracking my EIC refund

I qualified for the EIC and mailed all the forms in around the end of May.  It stated I would get almost $2300.00, can you please give me an update.


Thank you

Tracking my EIC refund

The IRS says that they pay 9 out of 10 refunds within 21 days. If you mailed your tax return "around the end of May" it might not be 21 days yet. Mailed returns take a little longer, and returns with EIC often take longer, so you may be the 1 out of 10 that takes longer than 21 days.

We can't give you an update. Your refund comes from the IRS, not from TurboTax. No one here in AnswerXchange or in TurboTax can check the status of your refund. Starting about 4 weeks after you mailed your tax return you can check the status yourself by using "Where's My Refund?" at the following link on the IRS web site.

See the following links on the IRS web site for more information about refund processing time.

The EIC refund doesn't come separately.  It is included in your total refund or it reduced your tax due.

Did you do an amended return (Form 1040X)? That takes about 4 mos to process.

Did you mail your entire return or e file?

Either way you can check on your refund irs.gov  "Where's my refund" tab.

Enter social security number, filing status, and refund amount.

Tracking my EIC refund

If ur referring to the form cp09.. it takes up to 8 weeks for them to review it and can take up to 16 weeks to process.. I am currently on week 10 and they finally processed it. So just waiting for direct deposit date. U can always call irs and to speak to a live rep keep hitting 7. But call after 6 weeks to see if they recieved it first. Hope that helps a little.
