The IRS issues more than 9 out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days. Each state sets its own refund processing schedule – some are similar to the IRS, while others are different. Due to the recent surge of tax-related identity theft and fraudulent refund claims, many states are taking longer to scrutinize returns prior to releasing refunds.

The fastest way to receive your refund is to e-file your return and choose direct deposit. E-filed returns are received more quickly than mailed returns, and direct deposit allows the IRS to issue your refund to your bank account as soon as it is approved.
