Are we to expect the IRS refund direct deposits to run late as well this year?

Asked by: fgr8out 474 views YA Discussion

As the date for opening efiling has been delayed and let’s face it the IRS was behind last year. Not to mention there is no direct deposit schedule posted. Are we to expect it to take closer to the 21 day length for uncomplicated non suspicious refunds?

    Refund amounts sometime after the first week in February and MIGHT be possible up to 21 days after the DATE that the IRS send out to you the acknowledgment that it has received the 1040 income tax return and ACCEPTED IT to start the processing of the 1040 income tax return at that time.
    What to Expect for Refunds in 2013 After they send out to you and you do RECEIVE your acknowledgment from the IRS and printed a copy of it so that you can read it very slowly and carefully to try and understand what the message is really telling you at that time in your life about your anticipated REFUND amount for that purpose.
    The IRS issued more than 9 out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days last year. The same results are expected in 2013.
    Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, it’s possible your tax return may require additional review and take longer.

    Caution,
    Don’t count on getting your refund by a certain date to make major purchases or pay other financial obligations. Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, it’s possible your tax return may require additional review and take longer.
