2011 Tax Refund Status

Posted by Madison on January 23, 2011

When filing tax returns, the second question everyone asks is “How long does it take to get my tax refund back?” Of course, the first question everyone asks is “How much is my refund?”

Update: For your tax refund status for the current year see 2012 tax refund status.

IRS Tax Refund Schedule

Here is the 2011 IRS refund schedule for both direct deposit and mailed refunds. 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.

IRS Tax Delay in Refund

There is a 2010 tax filing delay because the Obama Tax Deal was passed so late last year. The IRS refund cycle chart specifies that these dates are based on “normal processing.” It does not provide dates for the IRS refund delay.

In addition, there is a possibility that tax refunds could be delayed by a government shutdown.
