Once you have filed your income tax return, the anticipation of when your refund will be received (for some) is a daily thought. Taking in to consideration the manner in which you filed your return, paper or electronic, and are you waiting for a check refund or direct deposit, all are factors that should be taken into consideration. “Choosing e-file and direct deposit for refunds remains the fastest and safest way to file an accurate income tax return and receive a refund.”
If you are expecting a refund based on a claiming EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit) and ACTC, (Additional Child Tax Credit) those refunds will not be released until Feb. 15th, and then you will need to take into the consideration, either the processing to and of your financial institution, or delivery via postal service. You can utilized the app “IRS2Go” for a projected deposit date or “Where’s My Refund” on the IRS.gov site. Refund information will not be available until after Feb. 15th.
