Track Your Refund

When will you receive your refund? The answer depends on how you filed your return. The IRS typically sends out refunds on a schedule. This schedule varies by the method you sent your return in, when you file, and what credits you claim. See an estimated schedule in the chart below. 

Filing method and refund delivery method How long it takes to receive your refund from the time your return is accepted 
E-file and direct deposit 1-3 weeks 
E-file and check 1 month 
Mail in return and direct deposit  3 weeks
