Faster Tax Refunds Every Year

Want to receive your tax refund as soon as possible this year... and every year? File your tax returns electronically.

For complete paper tax returns filed on-time, your refund will be issued within 6-8 weeks from the receiving date. For electronic filers, tax refunds are issued within three weeks.

You can check your current year tax refund status online at IRS.gov by clicking the "Where's My Refund?" link. In order to access your files you'll need your Social Security number, filing status and the dollar amount of your expected refund.

DELAYED TAX REFUND?

Delayed refunds could be the result of several factors, including processing delays and filing errors. Information related to your specific delays can be found under Tax Topic 303 available on the IRS website.

LARGER OR SMALLER TAX REFUND?

If you receive a tax refund for an amount that is larger than you expected, do not cash the check; instead, ask for a full written explanation of the dollar difference. Follow the instructions on the tax notice to request an explanation.

Only deposit the tax refund check if you are satisfied with the explanation. Once you deposit the check, you accept the refund - and you may be subject to returning the difference later.

If your tax refund is smaller than you expected, you may cash the check. If you think you are entitled to more of a tax refund, it's possible that you may receive a check for the difference at a later date; or you can call 1-800-829-1040 two weeks after you receive your tax refund to inquire about the difference due to you.

MISSING TAX REFUND?

If your tax refund is verified lost or stolen, the IRS can assist you with a replacement check. To minimize risk of lost tax refund checks, make sure your information is current online, including address and phone number.

OPTIONS FOR YOUR TAX REFUND

You have three options for receiving individual federal income tax refunds: direct deposit, U.S. Savings Bonds or a paper check.

No need to put all your eggs in one basket: if you choose direct deposit for your tax refund, you can use Form 8888, Allocation of Refund (including Savings Bond Purchases), to separate your tax refund in up to three separate accounts with different purposes such as checking, savings or retirement accounts.

If you'd like to invest all or part of your tax refund, you may purchase up to $5,000 in U.S. Series I Savings Bonds, in multiples of $50.
