Hi I’m Theresa and I work for the Internal Revenue Service.

As soon as you hit send on your tax return, are you asking, “When will I get my refund?”

Well we do need a little bit of time here at the IRS to process your return.

Chances are if you e-filed and selected direct deposit, we could send you your refund in as few as 10 days.

If not, then most likely within 21 days.

More than nine times out of 10, tax payers are issued their refund in 21 days.

So odds are high your refund will be there soon.

So there’s no need to call. If we need more information to process your return, we’ll contact you by mail.

Something to kepe in mind though, the IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to ask for personal or financial information.

Now if you’re triyng to figure out the exact day you’re going to get your refund, the best way to do that is to go to our website and use the “Where’s my Refund” tool or if you have a smartphone, you can ue the IRS2Go app to check on your refund.
