    not unless is is loan advance
    IRS is not accepting 2012 tax returns until Jan 30 and refunds will not be made for 21 days

    For most taxpayers, the IRS will have the refund done in less than 21 days, just like they always have.

    My refunds have come through regularly in 8 days, but mine are very simple and look a lot like the year before.

    The IRS is having to combat a tidal wave of identity theft, so some return will be delayed. I know people who have a delayed refund suddenly wish they’d opted for an anticipation loan, but that’s not how it works. If you overpay for a loan, they will start demanding payback if the IRS doesn’t pay them in 21 days.

    You can get your refund in as little as 8-9 days by doing it online, no need to pay $ 200-400 to Jackson Clueless or H&R Blockheads.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    Few of the tax prep mills are doing refund anticipation loans. None of the local JH offices in my area are, nor are any of the Block office or any of the Mom & Pop operations.

    The IRS is not scheduling refunds as they did in the past and is only saying that 90% of taxpayers should receive their refunds within 21 days or less. It may be a lot less — I got mine last year in 4 days — but it may be longer as well.
