If you want to get your refund faster, opt for the direct deposit route. Not only will the IRS send your money a week earlier via direct deposit, but you’ll cut down on the mailing time too.
IRS Tax Refund Schedule
Here is the old IRS refund schedule for both direct deposit and mailed refunds. The IRS doesn’t guarantee that you’ll receive your refund by a certain date, but the schedule they publish does give some guidance.
Please note that the dates provided are for efiled returns only. In addition, the schedule doesn’t differentiate returns filed by the tax deadline, so be sure you’ve filed in time.
Update: The IRS has issued a tax refund delay alert. There is a delay for some taxpayers who filed their taxes to get your tax refund. For more detailed information on the updates, see the IRS tax refund delay.
