  • I just got a email from turbo tax, it said the irs have finally finished the last form, so e file today and get the fastest refund ever. I was just wondering  will the irs accept in the next few days or i will still have to wait until the 30th?
  • No acceptances until Jan 30.
  • no but it would be nice. Hoping but not counting on it.
  • I got an email from turbo tax stating the irs accepted my refund but the government wont process it until the 30th how long after they process it will i recieve my refund did anyone else get a message like this
  • TurboTax has released a few returns to the IRS to test their systems. The IRS has indicated most taxpayers will receive their refund within 21 days from the date of acceptance. It will not be accepted prior to Jan. 30.
    The IRS has said most taxpayers will receive there refund within 21 days from the time there return is accepted but they make no guarantees. You can check the status after your return is accepted at this web site:  www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96596,00.html
      Apparently in typical disorganized fashion they are not saying. Kinda whenever they feel like it. Barring glitches like last year I am guessing the usual ten to twenty one days.
        how long does it take in turbo tax after the 30? 2 weeks ?? 1 week? to get my return!????
        • The IRS says most taxpayers will receive refunds withing 21 days from the date their tax return is accepted.

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
