Refund delay

 This year it seems to be a lot more common for refunds to take months instead of days.  You would need to contact the IRS at 800-829-1040 to find out what is happening with your return

 

What if my IRS refund is taking longer than 21 days?

It's just been a day or two after the 21 expected after the EST

 Very good question! Mine has been delayed over two months! A simple standard deduction and nothing but 1099 forms plus one w2! Used TuboTax basic! Bit cannot get any help from IRS or Turbo Tax! What are we supposed to do?

Refund delay

Your refund may be delayed if your return needs corrections or extra review. If they need more information to process your return, they'll send you a letter.  

 

Why your refund might be taking longer

 

Call the IRS about your refund status only if Where's My Refund recommends you contact them.   IRS phone numbers and tax help options

I think it was my 1095-a for health insurance that I didn't even receive but I filed it anyway so I we shouldn't be in any trouble
