Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2020?

This is the date the IRS began accepting tax returns on January 27, 2020.

When Can You File Taxes in 2020?

Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the first week of January 2020.  You don’t need to wait for the IRS to start accepting tax returns to start, but you must have the proper forms and paperwork. Some forms are not available until mid January and some even later.  When you submit your return before the IRS begins processing, it will sit in a “queue” and be held until the date that the IRS will officially accept tax returns.  If you e-file early and it sits in queue, your return may be sent to the IRS early in a test batch. This has resulted in early direct deposits in the past, but also major glitches because they are tests after all.

Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

2020 Refund Cycle Chart

The most recent tax refund cycle charts have already been published. The official IRS tax refund cycle chart has been eliminated and replaced with an IRS Information Guidelines for the Tax Preparation Community publication and the IRS says the best way to check the status of your refund is using the Where’s My Refund tool. However, various websites with refund calendars for the 2020 tax season (2019 tax year) have been updated with 2020 direct deposit and check mailing dates.

When to Expect My Refund?

IRS Refund Schedule Charts typically show that early filers whose returns are accepted before the end of January can anticipate a tax refund direct deposit as early as the first week of February.  The day that IRS deposits refunds varies but we notice trends that help you determine the time and days WMR updates and when your tax return is processed.  This is an explanation and FAQ about when the IRS updates WMR and Transcripts.

The refund calendar by the College Investor is a good reference which has been updated for 2020 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    @Questionairre: you have to claim that as income. Even without receipts. That money MUST be claimed to avoid a tax fraud charge if the get wind of it.

    @Kitty104: that totally makes sense. I just wanted to be sure you weren’t missing anything. Years ago, before I started doing my husbands business taxes and started this journey, I had an H&R Block paid preparer tell me we could not claim our youngest son for EITC because he “wasn’t a student”. No crap, he’s one. A lot of people don’t understand that their children UNDER 19, that live with them full time are EITC claimable, except a few circumstances. 19 to under 24 they must be full time students. So many people miss out on money because so many “paid tax preparers” don’t know all the rules and such.

    @Goodvibes: I file early because of ID Verify. It can take some time for that whole process. Filing early makes it so that if I get held up for verification I will still get my refund on time.

    @Mbry0625: I didnt qualify for some reason. Maybe because I was having a hard time with tt this year so I made a new acct. So last week I started my taxes and It said I was getting back 8,xxx and was waiting for today for a form and today when I logged in my taxes changed to 2,xxx i was like wth, it didnt let me clear and start over so I made a new acct and it gave me the correct number this time. Even the live rep couldn’t figure out why it changed. I suggest everyone double check and make sure they are getting back with they should. I’m glad I made a new acct because I would of lost out on about 6 grand

    @Mbry0625: I was offered that advance through tt but i ended up going through HR Block as I have the last few years. Luckily this year I am not really in a major need for it so it will be nice to get it when it comes

    @Mbry0625: Ya I have several times and besides vacation there is nothing to miss. Even the entire week of Christmas she was closed but we still had to pay the $145. Really if her amount isn’t my amount she would be the one that would need to explain it to me. She also gives people a discount if they don’t want to claim it on their taxes. I thought that was odd. I opted to not take the discount so I can claim it. Especially on years my ex husband claims my youngest that bit back I get for child care really helps.

    @Tabby: If she is giving you something the end of the month and it is something she submits to the Irs, I would suggest waiting until you receive it. It could red flag it if the amounts were off just a little and you would have to send in proof of payment and it could possibly become a review. I think its better to be safe than to risk a review.

    So my daycare lady will not give our amounts paid for our taxes until January 31st. Her EIN is already in turbo tax from last year. Is there any reason I couldn’t go ahead and file when I get my work w2? He went all year and we have to pay regardless if she is closed so 52 weeks minus our week of vacation she allows us unpaid is 51 weeks @ $145 a week. Am I missing anything? She says she has had people try to claim the wrong amount so we have to wait until she gives it to us on the 31st but it should just be the above right? Unless they did math wrong I’m wondering how they got a random number that wasn’t right.

    One year, I filed on Monday was approved on Wednesday with a deposit date for Monday and because of the way my bank works, had the money Friday (Monday deposit dates are the only time I get deposits early).

    @FRAnk: If you have the child tax credits, then you won’t see a refund until after the 15th of February. If you don’t have them and everything processes smoothly, its possible you could see your refund the first part of February.

    @Mbry0625: yes it happened to me yesterday! 1st time in over 5 years I was denied a refund advance. And the tax preparer didn’t warn clients of her change so I called refundgo and was given that information.

    Last year I was accepted into the test batch, got my return back on the 24th of January vice the 28th because I have amex so I did not have to wait until opening day. Should be the same this year, I hope.

  76. Back For the 3rd Year.

    Last year sat in PATH. This year will be as well. I looked back at when the refund hit my bank account and it was DDD for 02/27 but received to traditional checking account at 6:00am 2/26. I am a weekly.

    @Fingerscrossed:

    Unless you get pushed through in a test batch, it will not be accepted before the 27th. If you have already filed it should be accepted by that day.

    Those credits will not have a refund issued before 02/15 though.
