More about your tax refund

Your e-file status and your refund status aren’t the same thing. Once the IRS accepts your return, they still need to approve your refund before they send it to you. Typically, you’ll receive your refund with 21 days after
the IRS accepts your return.

Frequently asked questions

What does it mean when my e-file’s been “Accepted”?

My return got approved. What happens next?

Congratulations! This means your e-file has passed inspection and the IRS has your tax return. If you filed with direct deposit, you should receive your return within 3 weeks. If you’re getting a paper check, it can take up to
6-8 weeks.

What does it mean if my e-file comes back as “Rejected”?

This means the IRS is sending your return back to you to make a correction. It’s often a simple fix, such as an incorrect birthdate. Once you correct it, you can re-submit your return for approval.
