When can I expect to receive my federal refund after electronic filing?

The time frame is based on averages.   No one knows yet what the IRS experience will be like this year.  They will open up for processing tomorrow.

The IRS  says 9 out of 10 filers who efile and choose direct deposit will get their refunds within 21 days.

Also, if you have EIC (earned income credit, aka EITC) or ACTC (additional child tax credit), the IRS will start processing them on Jan. 29, but will not start releasing those refunds until February 15.  That means people with those types of credits may not start receiving their refunds until around February 27.

Has your efiled return been accepted?  You can check with this tool, or you can log back into your account to check.

You'll be able to monitor the status of your Federal refund at this IRS page below, once it has been accepted.  It may take up to 24 hours after acceptance to show up there.
