Tax refund

I had taxes taken out of my refund amount which I owed.  I was expecting this.  However I am waiting on the balance remaining.   Does the IRS send the balance of my refund?

Tax refund

What?  You owed back prior year taxes? Yes you should get the rest of your refund if any is left.   Has the IRS sent it yet?


You are not alone. Millions are still waiting. Turbo Tax only gives you an estimated date. The IRS usually pays most refunds within 21 days. But these are not normal times. This year is taking the IRS longer to send the refunds. There are millions more people filing returns to get the Stimulus payment.

Only the IRS can tell you. If your return was Accepted then check IRS Where's my refund

When will you get your refund?

Yes I have did me this already.  Just this week they changed the status from processing to refund applied to tax due.  This still doesn’t tell me about the reminder of my refund due to me.
