When will I receive my tax refund?

  • If you are eligible for a tax refund and you electronically filed and chose to have your refund directly deposited, then you will most likely receive your tax refund within 21 days. If you filed a hard-copy of your tax return, it can take up to six weeks to receive your tax refund. If you are interested in checking the status of your tax refund, the IRS provides an online tracking system for your convenience.
