    After filing tax returns every year, most of my friends want to know how long does it take for the tax refund to arrive?

    The latest reminder from the IRS , Where’s My Refund or IRS2Go App is the most convenient way to inquire about federal tax refunds, while using E-file electronic tax returns and choosing Direct Deposit to directly deposit into the account is the safest and fastest way to receive tax refunds.

    What will cause the tax refund to be delayed?

    In general, the IRS will send the refund within 21 days of receipt of the tax return if the tax return is correct. However, the processing time may increase for several reasons, such as:

    • The tax information is incorrect or incomplete;
    • Affected by identity theft or fraud;
    • The tax return contains claims for credits such as EITC or ACTC;

    • The time between the IRS issuing the tax refund and the time when the bank accepted it and received it happened to be a holiday.

    However, the IRS said that applying for Recovery Rebate Credit will not result in a tax refund delay unless the declared relief amount is incorrect.

    If the IRS needs more information to process the tax refund, the IRS will contact the tax preparer by letter .

    Below, Rain will teach the newcomers how to use the IRS Where’s My Refund? (Where is my tax refund?) to check the tax refund status, and where to check the state tax refund status.
