Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

The refund cycle chart published by the IRS in the past has been eliminated and replaced with general information on their website about timing and where you can use the check Where’s My Refund tool.

We have said goodbye to the former refund cycle chart in replacement of a standard “21 days” response from the IRS.

It was eliminated in 2012 and replaced with IRS FAQs. We are forced to depend upon the data that the Where’s My Refund (WMR) tool decides to spit out. There are several sites that generate their own refund cycle chart based on assumption of processing schedules; but as we have learned, it’s hard to predict. Please remember, these are predictions and you should never rely upon such as definite availability of your tax refund.

Each year we update our refund cycle chart based on our experiences in the past and the igotmyrefund.com admins in the live discussion have nailed the correct dates every year.

The deposit dates provided are based on filing and transmitting as early as the first week of January with some tax preparers. Your return can be filed, but it will sit in a queue until the IRS begins accepted tax return. This is usually around the third week of the year.
