When can I reasonably expect to receive my federal tax refund?
Most individuals receive their federal refund within 21 days. Some as little as 3-4 days. You can use the IRS tool Where's My Refund? to check on the status of your refund 24 hours a day. It provides the most up-to-date information the IRS has. There’s no need to call the IRS unless Where’s My Refund? tells you to do so. The program is updated every 24 hours – usually overnight. You will need your social security number, filing status, and the exact amount of your refund to use this IRS tool.
