I copied a portion of the table below which shows when your federal tax refund should be deposited in your bank account (by direct deposit), or when your check would be mailed if you e-filed and your refund was accepted within certain dates.

While it may be interesting information to have, this is the federal government that we are talking about. You can also check the status of your income tax refund using this link. (And of course, en Español: ¿Dónde está mi reembolso? ) You will need to enter your social security number, filing status, and refund amount to see your refund status.
I've heard some anecdotal stories about the IRS taking a lot longer to process refunds in 2010, so I would take the information with a grain of salt. I will be curious how the IRS does this time around.

Whatever you do, don't let Instant Tax Services in Fort Wayne Indiana do your taxes. Last year I went with them and had many issues. Foolishly I went to them this year as we'll. Big mistake I got my taxes done on 01/19/11 which wouldhave allowed me to receive them by the first but made some mistake and when I called to check my refund status I found out it had never been filed so now I have to wait an extra 3 days or more for their mistake. I am furious. Go anywhere but there!ReplyDelete
When you use a credit card for partial payment of £100 or more you normally are protected. The problem is that when you use PayPal as an intermediary, you’re not actually buying the item with the credit card, just PayPal credits.ReplyDelete
