When will I get my tax refund?
Congratulations, you finished your taxes! Now you're probably wondering: When will I get my refund?
The IRS will begin processing returns on January 30. Within 48 hours of e-filing (or February 2, whichever comes later) you can start tracking your refund by following these directions:
- TurboTax Online: If you e-filed and chose direct-deposit, sign in to My TurboTax to track your refund.
All others: Wait at least 24 hours after your e-file has been accepted (4 weeks if you mailed your return), and then visit the IRS "Where's My Refund" page.
- The IRS "Where's My Refund" page has the latest info about your refund, straight from the source. Bookmark that site so you can check back periodically.
- Don't worry if your expected refund date keeps changing; this is normal. Last year, 9 out of 10 taxpayers received their refund in less than 21 days. The same is expected this year.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
