    ONLY check the WMR website ONCE each day after the AM updates for this purpose and time in your life.
    What is happening when Where’s My Refund? shows the status of my refund is: Return Received?
    This means the IRS has your tax return and is processing it. Your personalized refund date will be available as soon as the IRS finishes processing your return and confirms that your refund has been approved. Most refunds are issued in less than 21 days.
    How long will it take for my status to change from “Return Received” to Refund Approved?
    Sometimes your status may change from “Return Received” to “Refund Approved” in just a few days, but it could take longer and a date will not be provided until your refund has been approved. However, if Where’s My Refund? shows the status of your refund is: Return Received we have received your tax return and we are processing it.
    What is happening when Where’s My Refund? shows the status of my refund is: Refund Approved?
    This means the IRS has processed your return and your refund has been approved. The IRS is now preparing to send your refund to your bank or directly to you in the mail if you requested a paper check.
    What is happening when Where’s My Refund? shows the status of my tax return is: Refund Sent?
    This means the IRS has sent your refund to your financial institution for direct deposit. It may take your financial institution 1 – 5 days to deposit the funds into your account. If you requested a paper check this means your check has been mailed. It could take several weeks for your check to arrive in the mail.
    How often does Where’s My Refund? update?
    Where’s My Refund? updates are made no more than once per day, usually at night.
    What if I am counting on my refund for something important? Can I expect to receive it on time?
    Be careful not to count on getting your refund by a certain date to make major purchases or pay other financial obligations. Many different factors can affect the timing of your refund after we receive it for processing. 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. Also, if you are anticipating a refund, take into consideration the time it takes for your financial institution to post the refund to your account, or for mail delivery. This can and will add a few more days sometimes 1 to 5 days could be possible and your account holder that was used for your DD number at the bottom of the page 2 of your 1040 income tax return would be the one that should be able to tell you the date that they will make your refund amount be available to you to use at that time.

    Until April 15th… if theres no errors, or other obligations owed. If there are then it could be until the end of the tax year. MOST people do not know and will argue the fact with you BUT if there is NO ERRORS or OBLIGATIONS and they do not issue your refund by April 15th then they owe to INTREST! Trust me they do not want to pay you intrest, so the simple answer is April 15. They CLAIM they issue most within 21 days, BUT 80million filled, and 60million issued are within 21 days, then they are truthfull. But remember this give you a 25% chance of being longer. 20,000,000 people are affected in the longer wait tme!

    The IRS only states that 90% of taxpayers should receive their refunds in 21 days or less. Given that yours has only been in the system for 11 days now, you have nothing to be concerned about. Yet…
