When do I get my tax returns?
The timeline for receiving a tax return depends on several factors, including the date the return was filed, the payment method chosen for any refund, and any issues or errors that may arise during the processing of the return. Typically, if you file your tax return electronically and choose direct deposit for any refund owed to you, you can expect to receive your refund within 21 days of the IRS accepting your return. If you file a paper tax return, it may take up to 6 to 8 weeks to receive your refund. However, it's important to note that these timelines are subject to change depending on various factors, including any backlog of returns being processed or any errors that need to be resolved. Additionally, if you owe taxes, the deadline to pay is typically April 15th, regardless of when you receive any refund owed to you.
