We e-filed both Federal and MN State taxes on 2/27, with direct deposit of refunds. State refund arrived 3/4 and Federal arrived today 3/9.

We're very happy because we are still waiting for our 2019 Federal refund. A stupid $18 error required an amended return (paper filing only) and it could take another 2-3 months to reconcile everything. We were concerned that those issues would delay our 2020 refund.

E-filed with HR Block software 2/15 and it was accepted the same day. Expecting a refund but nothing yet. When I check my refund status on IRS site it says my return is still being processed and a refund date will be provided when available.

This is similar to my situation. My HR Block return was accepted on 2/23, with an email stating my refund would be deposited in 3-5 days. So far, nothing.

Now... the state is a different issue. In that instance I quite owed quite a bit of money, and they withdrew the full amount from my bank account on the scheduled date.

Got my refund in three days. I filed and my return was approved on Tuesday (3/9) and the refund is showing as a pending transaction in my account on Friday (3/12).

I rolled forward most of my return, but I thought it best to get some refund so that the Government would have my routing/account number in case they want to give me any more stimulus money in the future.

ETA: The refund cleared today (3/17). That's the kind of green I like on St Paddy's day.

2020 Tax Refund Yet?

Has anyone gotten their 2020 tax refund yet? If so, how long did you wait? Mine was electronically accepted nearly a month ago. The check your status app just says "being processed". The past three years, I have gotten my refund in less than two weeks.

Yep, our return was received by the IRS on 3/5, and our direct deposit arrived 3/12...and even showed up as pending on 3/11. But our stimulus payment hasn't; we are eligible for a partial payment based on our 2020 AGI, so they should have had that in the system on 3/5, but we would NOT be eligible based on our 2019 AGI. So we'll see if it shows up next week. But at least we got a nice big refund based on 1) lower income than usual, and 2) the remainder of the stimulus payments that we missed because they had been based on our 2019 AGI.

I filed 2/15 and it was accepted same day. Im still waiting for refund. Check my status app just keeps saying being processed. My theory is that Im getting ACA money back and that is holding things up since Nevada runs their own exchange? Not really interested in calling IRS to see what they say.

My DD efiled 2/27. Her refund didn't show up until yesterday. My simple one took 4 days, her more complicated one took 2 weeks.

Waiting to file on Wednesday. Supposed to get the stimulus check then. I think we would be OK, just don't want to jinx it. We had an exceptional 2020...

Filed my Federal and State via Turbo Tax(online version) and the Federal has already been accepted. Just 30 minutes after submitting it. Hope State goes through w/o a hitch. My refunds are minor so applied to estimated tax payments for 2021.

First time I've filed electronically in 3 or 4 years. Got away from it due to ID theft concerns but with everything else already out there.... why worry about this one.

I started this thread to give an idea for others how quickly they might receive theirs. I thought it might be useful. If you pull down "Thread tools" you'll find "Ignore this thread" so you'll never be bothered when this pops up again.

Update: IRS site now shows status as approved and refund scheduled for 3/24. Eight days later as compared to last year. Not as bad as I thought it would be.
