I am still waiting , says my taxes were approved 2/13/2021 but when I track my refund on its.gov it says it’s still being processed and it’s been almost 21 day mark same with my state
@Mariahrae30 The IRS began accepting returns on Feb 12, 2021. It sounds like your return was accepted on Feb 13, 2021, which means the IRS took ownership and began processing the return. As soon as they have finished processing the return, it will move to issuing the refund and there will be a direct deposit date.

It depends. The IRS issues most refunds from e-filed returns in about 21 days, although some returns take more time to review.
To find out where your refund is, first check your e-file status. If it's been accepted, you can begin to track your refund at the IRS Where's My Refund? site. You'll need your Social Security number or ITIN, filing status, and the exact amount of your refund to check your status.
For some taxpayers, PATH Act requirements and other identity-protection safeguards implemented by the IRS may account for longer wait times.
Other things that can delay your refund include, but are not limited to:
- Liens, back taxes, or refund offsets
- Errors, inconsistencies, or missing information
- Identity fraud
- Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, which can take 11-14 weeks to process
Also, if you chose direct deposit, your financial institution may need another day or two to post the refund to your account, so keep that in mind.
