The IRS begins a "soft" opening on accepting tax returns on Fri Jan 24th. This means only a select few will be accepted and ran through to test the software. They will then officially open on Jan 31st for tax season. 3-21 days for your refund. IRS now sends deposits daily. 3 days is best case scenario, 21 is worst. If you are lucky and accepted on Jan 24th, you will probably have your refund by Jan 31st. GOOD LUCK :)
The IRS begins processing returns on Jan 31, and issues most refunds within 21 days of acceptance.
Happy Tax season

Here is a 2014 IRS refund schedule :) Bea
Check WMR today and the bars are gone. It says " Your tax return is still being processed.
A refund date will be provided when available" I do not know what this mean? Hopefully it is a good thing or not. I need my money asap
I am in WI and my state return was accepted on 1-30. My federal was accepted on 1-28. I had filed on 1-25. I am glad to read that the IRS is sending refunds more often now. I am still just on the accepted bar for both federal and state, but that should change soon I am thinking.
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.
