How quickly will you get your income tax refund?

IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 calendar days.

It is taking the IRS more than 21 days to issue refunds for some 2021 income tax returns that require review including incorrect Recovery Rebate Credit amounts, or that used 2020 income to figure the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC).

If you claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) on my tax return. When can you expect your refund?

According to the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, the IRS cannot issue EITC and ACTC refunds before mid-February. The IRS expects most EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or on debit cards by the first week of March if they chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax return. Check Where’s My Refund?  for your personalized refund date.

Where’s My Refund? 

On IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app remains the best way to check the status of a refund. WMR on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go app will be updated with projected deposit dates for most early EITC/ACTC refund filers by February 22. So EITC/ACTC filers will not see an update to their refund status for several days after Feb. 15.

Will calling IRS or NexGen Taxes Pro help me get my personal or business income tax refund any faster?

No. unless Where’s My Refund? directs you to call us, IRS representatives or NexGen Taxes Pro will not be able to provide any additional information.

If Where’s My Refund? says that we’re still processing your return, IRS or our representatives won’t be able to give you a specific refund date.
