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.

    I got a text message that my return was sent to the IRS today. I just got another text message that my return was accepted. It doesn’t really matter in my case though because I have to wait for the PATH but I thought that I would share anyway. 😊

    @lilred44 (15th): you can also use your last paystub in the year 2019 issued to you from that employer.
    If you worked all year with them use the last paystub from Dec. It’s basically the same numbers figures and info from the W2

    I come on this website every year, it helps make the time go by a bit faster. 😂 I filed last night & was accepted about 15 minutes ago. I also filed with Turbotax. I have a simple return , no kids or anything & only had two W2’s. I will keep posting if anything changes.

    @Mbry0625: For some, it probably does match but I have seen people in the last few years using their check stubs and they ended up in review and had to verify their income, that’s why I encourage people to wait for the w2.

    I haven’t received my last check stub from 2019 and that’s how i do my taxes each year. HR department is never there and now waiting on W2s. I am never this late to file. Happy for all of you that already filed.

    @Questionairre: @Questi: first, I would be sure I have a ledger filled out with prices paid for products, and prices received for the products and the dates (as close as you can recall). Use phone call records, text records, direct message records to figure that out.
    Secondly self employed individuals don’t have to pay quarterly taxes, though you definitely should in the future but you will pay a penalty for 2019. If you are going to continue this business in 2020, be sure to keep a ledger, ask for and give receipts, and pay quarterly taxes. Good luck!
