Refund Processing Time varies depending on how you filed. The funds will not be applied to your account by the IRS until they have released them:
• E-filed tax returns with direct deposit – E-file with direct deposit is the fastest way to get your federal tax refund. The IRS states that 9 out of 10 e-filed tax returns with direct deposit will be processed within 21 days of IRS e-file acceptance.
• Mailed paper returns – Refund processing time is 6 to 8 weeks from the date the IRS receives your tax return.
