The IRS no longer releases an annual refund schedule, including the IRS Tax Refund Calendar 2023. However, if you have filed your tax return electronically, you can expect to receive your refund within three weeks. Based on trends from previous years, we have provided estimated direct deposit and check mailing dates below.
There are two methods to receive your IRS tax refund: direct deposit and check. If you have electronically filed your 2022 tax return and selected either direct deposit or check, you can expect to receive your refund within 2-3 weeks. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has neither published a schedule for direct deposit refunds nor announced a specific date for receiving 2022 tax returns. As is customary every year, millions of people have electronically filed for a tax refund, and some have already received their returns.
IRS Tax Refund Calendar 2023
The deadline for e-filing for refunds is April 18, 2023. As per the above table for the IRS Tax Refund Calendar 2023, it can be inferred that the direct deposit refund is usually received within 21 days after e-filing. However, if you have opted for a check, it may take up to one week longer than the direct deposit option.
If you filed your tax return and selected the direct deposit option, you should receive your refund within 21 days at the latest. If it has been more than 21 days since you filed for a refund and you have not received the direct deposit, you can visit the IRS website to contact the relevant authority.
Mailed date of IRS refund check
Taxpayers who electronically filed for a refund and chose to receive a check may experience a delay of up to seven days, and sometimes up to ten days, compared to direct deposit. If you have not received your check within four weeks, wait an additional two to three days. It is important to note that refunds for e-filed tax returns are typically received within three to four weeks if the refund is accepted within seven days of e-filing. You can check the status of your return within 24 hours of filing. Refunds may be delayed only if the IRS has not accepted your refund even after one week has passed.
Taxpayers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) when filing for a tax refund may expect to wait 6 to 8 weeks to receive their refund, regardless of whether they opted for direct deposit or a check.
