When will my Federal Refund come?
Most taxpayers will get their refunds within 21 days of IRS receipt of their efile.  (Note that this is a bit slower than in the past, due the IRS checking more thoroughly for identity theft issues.)  Starting January 31, we will generally efile returns within 24 hours after the client signs permission for us to efile.  So, for example, someone who has her return prepared on February 3 will have it efiled on February 4.  Starting on February 5, she can check the refund status at the link below.  In 90% of the cases, her refund will be deposited in her bank account by February 25.
