When Should I Expect to Get My Tax Return?


Unless they have asked for a tax extension, today is the last day for people to send in their income tax forms. Anyone who filed their taxes, whether they did it themselves with tax software or with the help of a tax professional, may be able to get a tax return. Because of changes to taxes made in 2023, tax refunds are slightly less than they were the year before. On the other hand, the average tax returns this year is now $2,910.

You can do a little after completing and sending your tax return. All you have to do is wait calmly for your tax refund. Knowing when your IRS funds are expected to arrive lets you make intelligent financial plans.


How do I keep track of the progress of my tax refund?

The IRS’s “Where’s My Refund?” page is the best way to find out where your tax return is at any given time. This platform also lets you know if your return might be rejected because of mistakes.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) offers tracker tools. To use them, you must provide your Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, your filing status (single, married, or head of household), and your refund amount in whole dollars.

Keeping track of a refund from an earlier fiscal year.

The Where’s My Refund tool lets you see the information about your government refund that the IRS has stored for the past two years. You need to log in to your IRS online account to get information about tax returns from earlier years.

When you go to the platform, you will see your total outstanding balance, a complete record of your payment history, meaningful information about your most recent tax return, any notifications you’ve received from the IRS, and the address on file.

Use the IRS2Go app on your phone to quickly check on the progress of your tax return.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a mobile app called IRS2Go that makes it easy for people to check on the progress of their tax refund.

What is the current status of my tax return?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tools will give you one of three messages that tell you what’s going on with your tax return.

Verification: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has handled your tax return and confirmed the exact amount of your refund, if any.

Why does the “Where’s My Refund” tool show me an IRS problem message or “Tax Topic 152”?

Most of the time, the Where’s My Refund tool shows states like “Received,” “Approved,” or “Sent.” There are, however, a few other messages that some people may see.

Tax Topic 152 comes up a lot. It says you will likely get a refund, even though it has yet to be accepted or sent out. The notice includes a link to a helpful topic page on the IRS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) website. This page explains the different types of tax refunds and when they are due.

The wait might be because of an automated message sent to taxpayers. This is because more steps have been taken to protect against fraud.

Tax Topic 151 says that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reviews your tax return. This means that either the agency needs to check on certain credits or dependents, or it has decided that your tax refund will be lessened to pay off any bills it thinks you have. Please be aware that it usually takes the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) four weeks to send you a notice explaining the steps needed to fix your present situation.

Should I call the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to find out what’s going on with my tax refund?

Many agree that calling the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and getting live help is hard. According to Erin M. Collins, the national taxpayer champion, only 13% of taxpayers could contact a natural person in 2022.

Additionally, Congress has increased the agency’s funds, which has led the IRS to hire over 5,000 more telephone representatives. The agency says people should only call them if it’s been at least 21 days since they filed their taxes online or if the Where’s My Refund tool tells them to.

Explain what “IRS TREAS 310” means on my bank account as it appears.

Your tax refund may show up as a transaction called IRS TREAS 310 if you chose direct deposit as payment. When a tax return is made, and a refund is given, the 310 code informs the system that the cost is electronic. You may also see “TAX REF” in the description field. This word means a tax return.

Why did my refund come in the mail instead of being sent directly to my bank account?

You may get your return in the mail instead of having it deposited electronically into your account. Please keep these things in mind:

Please ensure that the account and route number you give is correct.

You can only deposit into accounts in your name, partner’s name, or both terms for a joint account.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a rule that says a person can only get three direct deposits of tax returns.
