Re: Where is my refund?

After you file

@Cedges I'm not sure if this is what you were referring to above and did get it figured out but are you seeing a status on the IRS Where’s My Federal Refund? site? If not, be sure when checking Where’s My Federal Refund? site that you are entering only your Federal refund amount. This can be found on your Federal form 1040, line 21a. Also if you paid any fees out of your federal refund, use the refund figure prior to the deduction of he fees.

Where’s My Refund? has a tracker that displays progress through 3 stages:

(1) Return Accepted "Received," (2) Refund Approved and (3) Refund Sent.

Note: Once your refund status on the IRS shows "Refund Sent" it can take 1 to 5 business days for the financial institution to deposit fund into your account. 

So once Santa Barbara Tax Products Group receives your refund from the IRS, they will take out the fee and send to your financial institution. (then you can check your refund here )
