Will I see a date for my refund right away?
Where’s My Refund? will not give you a refund date right away. We must first receive your tax return and then we have to process it and approve your refund. Where’s My Refund? will give you a personalized date once your refund is approved.

  • I have seen that happen in the past, but I wouldn’t count on it. I would just check the website daily.

  • Caroline, I would say that the chance is slip to none. I would keep an eye on the Where’s My Refund page daily though.

  • if your payment was sent to like turbotax type where it has to go through another bank to take out fees then you have to wait until that bank opens and they will process them. Some banks are not open yet so check your accounts later this morning or afternoon.

  • Many of my clients did. The ones who paid upfront did. The ones who had their payment taken out of their refund, however, have not received their tax payment yet. I also have no received my portion yet.

  • Todd, we had at least 15 clients receive their refunds today.
