    You don’t get taxes, you pay taxes.

    Refunds take about 21 days.

    NO guarantee dates for you to be able to receive your anticipated FIT REFUND at all for the 2013 tax filing season for the 2012 tax year.
    When you do print of copy of your 1040 RETURN for your records for your future use on that date you will have your FIT RETURN in your hand.
    Possible REFUND amount up to 21 days after the date the IRS issues you the acknowledgment that they did RECEIVE the 1040 income tax and either they tell you that they ACCEPTED it or that they might just tell you that they REJECTED it and that is when you will have to make sure that you do print you a copy of the NOTICE from the IRS so that you can make sure you can read it line by line very slowly and see if you really understand what your NEXT step will have to be for you to get your FIT done right at that time so that they ACCEPT it to start processing it into the system.
    After it does get ACCEPTED as your 1040 income tax return you will just have to wait as they continue with going through the processing of it at that time in your life.
    Where’s My Refund opens January 30, 2013.
    Due to recent tax law changes, we will open filing season and start processing individual income tax returns on January 30. This applies to tax returns filed on paper or electronically.
    Once we start processing returns, we expect to issue refunds within normal timeframes. You can generally expect the IRS to issue your refund in less than 21 calendar days after we receive your tax return.
    Starting January 30, you can use this tool to check on the status of your refund. It will provide the most up-to-date information the IRS has. There’s no need to call us unless Where’s My Refund? tells you to do so. Where’s My Refund? is updated every 24 hours – usually overnight – so you only need to check once a day.

    What to Expect for Refunds in 2013
    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.
    Use Where’s My Refund? to Check the Status of Your Refund.
    Where’s My Refund? has a new look for 2013! The tool will include a tracker that displays progress through 3 stages: (1) Return Received, (2) Refund Approved and (3) Refund Sent.
    You will get personalized refund information based on the processing of your tax return. The tool will provide an actual refund date as soon as the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund. Remember, most refunds will be issued in less than 21 days.
    In 2013 you will be able to start checking on the status of your return sooner – within 24 hours after we have received your e-filed return or 4 weeks after you mail a paper return.

    You do not get taxes, you pay taxes. If you had more taxes withheld than your tax liability actually is, and/or if you qualify for some refundable tax credits, then you get a tax refund.

    This year, the IRS is not releasing a refund cycle chart but is saying that most refunds should be issued WITHIN 21 days. That does not necessarily mean it will be three weeks, but that is the most that the majority of refunds should take to be issued. Some will take longer, some will be much shorter. After your return is accepted, you can check “Where’s My Refund?” on the IRS site to get customized information.

    Direct deposit is certainly the quickest way to get your refund, especially if it is deposited directly by the IRS and does not have to go through the tax preparation company first.
