What's the fastest way to get my federal tax refund?

The fastest way to get your refund is to e-file your return instead of paper-filing it and choose to have your refund direct deposited in lieu of a check.

For a limited time only, customers will have the opportunity to apply for a Refund Advance on a Turbo® Visa® Debit Card. Read more here. (The Refund Advance offer ends on February 8, 2021.)

Whichever filing method or refund method you choose, you can track your 2020 federal refund at the IRS's Where's My Refund? site.

Note: The PATH Act prohibits the IRS from issuing early refunds on returns claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. See this IRS article for more info.
