Why is it taking too long for my refund to get processed

About how long has it been since you filed?  Did you efile, or did you print, sign, and mail the return?

If you efiled, what do you see when you double-check with this tool to be sure the return was efiled successfully and accepted?

If that showed it was accepted (or if you mailed the return), what do you see at the IRS website below for the status of your Federal refund?  Click the blue button "Check My Refund Status."

Does the IRS WMR tool not say that it is being processed?   "Accepted" is an efile status, not a refund status.

Only the IRS will know what all they are doing with your return.  You said you efiled 10 days ago.  10 days is still within the normal time limits.  In fact, many returns take longer than that.

The IRS says 9 out of 10 filers who efile and choose direct deposit will get their refunds within 21 days.  That means that many returns take longer than that.   Some returns take longer for additional processing due to specific items in the return.  Some are pulled at random for more thorough investigation.

If your Federal return is still processing after 21 days, we can tell you how to phone to speak to an IRS agent to see if they will tell you the reason for the delay.

You can monitor the status of your Federal refund at this IRS page below.
