From the IRS website: "If you file a complete and accurate paper tax return, your refund should be issued in about six to eight weeks from the date IRS receives your return."  More information can be found here: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-news/at-01-48.pdf

State return processing varies from state to state, in general, you may have to wait up to 8 weeks for the state return to be processed. You may be able to look up your state's tax authority online to learn more. More information here:  https://www.irs.com/articles/state-tax-refund-arrival-date
