Accepted on the 1st feb refund will be deposited on  feb 7th
  • how did yours get accept mines was accepted on the first and still nothing
  • REREAD THEIR ANSWER JIMCRUZ73!! It clearly STATES that the IRS accepted his return on 1 February and the refund will not be deposited until February 7. He probably received notification that his refund ETA is FEB 7th!! You can check The estimated time of deposit, if it was automatically deposited in your account on the website under "Where's my refund?" :-)
  • PLEASE TELL E HOW BECAUSE IT NOT TELLIG ME NOTHING... IT SAYS THEY CAN'T GIVE ME INFORMATION...

I was accepted on 1/26 and was scheduled for direct deposit on 2/4 but i actually received it on 2/2. So they are working really fast. In my experience from past years, it has always been deposited before the scheduled time. Hang in there I'm sure it will arrive very soon.

    If you filed your taxes and used any educational credits their is a delay because the 1098-T forms on the IRS is not available just yet.
    Waiting myself and I files 01/26/2013 so patiently waiting on the IRS
    • its form 8863 not 1098
    • Whatever it is its holding my money up I filed 25 still waiting due to form 8863
    • You can efile with another company and then amend your return after you get your money!

      The original will be rejected as a duplicate and you'll be fine =)
    • WOW THANKS!!!

      • Topic 152 - Refund Information

        Taxpayers have three options for receiving their individual federal income tax refund:

        •direct deposit (electronic funds transfer) into a checking or savings account, including an individual retirement arrangement (IRA);
        •purchase of U.S. Series I Savings Bonds; or
        •paper check.

        If you choose to receive your refund by direct deposit, you can request that the refund be deposited in up to three separate accounts, such as checking, savings, or retirement accounts – just complete Form 8888 (PDF), Allocation of Refund (Including Savings Bond Purchases). However, if you file Form 8379 (PDF), Injured Spouse Allocation, you cannot have your refund direct-deposited into more than one account. Your refund should only be deposited directly into accounts that are in your own name, your spouse’s name or both if it’s a joint account. Please note that to receive your refund by direct deposit (whether into one account or more), the total refund amount must be $1.00 or more.

        If you file a complete and accurate tax return, your refund should be issued within 21 days of the received date. This time-frame does not include mail and IRS handling time for paper returns. Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, it’s possible your tax return may require review and take longer.

        Use Where's My Refund? to get your personalized refund status. Just use IRS2Go, our free mobile app, from an iPhone or Android device, or go to IRS.gov. Both are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can start checking on the status of your return within 24 hours after we have received your e-filed return or 4 weeks after you mail a paper return.

        Have your 2012 tax return handy so you can provide your social security number, your filing status and the exact whole dollar amount of your refund shown on your return.

        If you do not have Internet access, you may call the Refund Hotline at 800-829-1954. Where’s My Refund? includes information for the most recent return filed in the current year and does not include information about amended returns.

        Where’s My Refund? has a new look this year! The tool includes a tracker that displays progress through 3 stages: (1) Return Received, (2) Refund Approved and (3) Refund Sent. Where’s My Refund? will provide an actual personalized refund date as soon as the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund. So in a change from previous filing seasons, taxpayers won’t get an estimated refund date right away.

        Where’s My Refund? provides the most accurate and complete information we have so there’s no need to call unless the tool tells you to. Updates to refund status are made no more than once a day - usually at night.

        Processing may take longer under certain circumstances. Refunds from amended returns will generally be issued within 12 weeks. Injured spouse claims can take longer depending on the circumstances. Refer to Topic 203 for more information about injured spouse claims. Refund claims associated with an application for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number also take additional processing time. Refer to Topic 857 for more information about Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers.

        You can also refer to Topic 303 for a checklist of common errors when preparing your tax return and for additional items that may delay the processing of your return.

        If you receive a refund to which you are not entitled, or one for an amount that is more than you expected, do not cash the check until you receive a notice explaining the difference; then follow the instructions on the notice.

        On the other hand, if you receive a refund for a smaller amount than you expected, you may cash the check, and, if it is determined that you should have received more, you will later receive a check for the difference. You will also get a notice explaining the difference. Follow the instructions on the notice.

        The IRS will help you obtain a replacement for a refund check that we verify as lost or stolen.

        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.
