When Will I Get My 2021 Tax Refund

The IR says Tax Season shall commence on February 12, 2021. Below are charts to show when you should expect your refund.

Mar. 8 Mar. 19 (Mar. 26)

Mar. 29, 2021 Apr. 9, 2021 (Apr. 16)**
Apr. 5 Apr. 16 (Apr. 23)**
Apr. 12 Apr. 23 (Apr. 30)**
Apr. 19 Apr. 30 (May 7)**
Apr. 26 May 7 (May 14)
May 3 May 14 (May 21)
May 10 May 21 (May 28)

IMPORTANT: If you file electronically (using an online tax program or preparer), the IRS will notify you of the actual date they “accepted” your return. This is often 1-3 days from the time you actually hit the “file” or “submit” button, and it is this date that you need to use for the above chart.

Taxpayers who mail a paper version of their income tax return can expect at least a 3-4 week delay at the front-end of the process, as the return has to be manually entered into the IRS system before it can be processed.
