When to expect your refund

The first question that taxpayers who expect to get a refund ask is "When can I expect to get the refund?" The answer depends on how you filed and if the return was accepted as filed, i.e., no errors caused a delay in the IRS accepting the return. Generally, taxpayers who e-filed returns and requested direct deposit in a checking or savings account will get their refunds faster than taxpayers who filed a paper return and requested a paper check.
