When will I get my IRS tax refund?

The IRS issues most refunds in about 21 days, although some returns take more time to review.

To find out where your refund is, first check your e-file statusIf it's been processed and 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. The IRS will issue your refund when your return is approved.

Paper-filers: The IRS asks you wait 4 weeks after you mail your return before looking up your refund at Where's My Refund? 

If it has been more than 21 days since your return was accepted, you can call the IRS directly to check on your refund status.
