When should I expect to get my unemployment tax credit refund?

The IRS is processing the tax refunds in batches for the unemployment compensation exclusion.  Refunds will be distributed starting in May and then for the next several months.

Go to these IRS websites for information -

When should I expect to get my unemployment tax credit refund?

The most recent batch of unemployment refunds went out in late July.   The IRS has not announced when the next batch will be sent.

 

The IRS is recalculating refunds for people whose AGI is $150K or below and who filed before the tax law that changed the amount of unemployment that is taxable on a federal return became effective.   

 

 

The IRS began to send out the additional refund checks for tax withheld from unemployment in May.  The refunds are being sent out in batches—starting with the simplest returns first.   If you are eligible for the extra refund for federal tax that was withheld from your unemployment the IRS will be sending you an additional refund sometime during the next several months.  TurboTax cannot track or predict when it will be sent.  The IRS has not provided a way for you to track it, so all you can do is wait for the refund to arrive.
