When will I get my IRS tax refund?
If you e-filed, start by checking your e-file status.
Last year, 9 out of 10 e-filers received their IRS tax refund in less than 21 days, and we expect the same this year.
Paper-filers: The IRS asks that you wait 4 weeks after you mail your return before looking up your refund at Where's My Refund?
(If you claimed an Earned Income Tax Credit and/or an Additional Child Tax Credit and filed before February 15, 2017, you’ll get your refund the week of February 27 at the earliest.)
