UPDATED OCOTOBER 2016:  IRS e-file Refund Cycle Chart for 2017 with Direct Deposit and Check dates provided below are based on filing and transmitting as early as January 2, 2017. This has not been and will not be published by the IRS.  The IRS now says most refunds will be issued within 21 days of your return being accepted.  This general estimate doesn’t satisfy everyone and now many independent sites try to estimate dates when refunds will be sent.  The IRS e-file Refund Cycle Chart for 2017 with Direct Deposit and Check dates are only estimates by various website owners.  It might give you a good idea, but never bank on it because many issues arise and delay tax refunds. When will tax season open? Once we know the date tax season open, the estimated tax refund direct deposit dates will likely be updated.

As each year comes to a close and the next tax filing season approaches, early tax filers start to think and ask the big question.  When will I get my tax refund?  The estimated 2017 IRS Refund Cycle Chart can now be found at countless websites for the 2017 tax season.  Be cautious though, the charts you find are not “official” and the dates when you should expect to receive your refund will not all be the same.   Why? The official IRS Refund Cycle Chart published by the IRS is no more. Since they stopped publishing an official refund cycle chart, various independent versions are now created each year based on estimates and prior year trends.

There are slightly different versions of the tax refund schedules scattered across countless websites to help tax refund hunters track down that magic date.  These refund cycle charts will crop up more and more as the year comes to a close. Most are just guesstimates, some even educated guesses. Many times the refund charts you find are just duplicates of the prior year with slightly adjusted dates.

There are various tax situations for every taxpayer and this is why prediction as to when you will get your tax refund can be difficult; and, every year there will be glitches with one process or another at the IRS which could delay your refund.  Since an official IRS refund calendar is a thing of the past, when taxpayers can expect to receive their tax refund in 2017 remains a mystic idea. This is likely why the IRS now firmly sticks to a general statement to everyone that “your tax refund should arrive within 21 days”.

We stress to you that pre-spending those beloved refunds is playing with fire, wait for that direct deposit to hit in 2017! IGMR will post any estimated tax refund charts here that we find credible or to have plausible timeframes.

Here are some of estimated charts to help you gauge how the tax season might play out.

Happy Refunding!

Is there another way to check a tax return status after filing?

Yes. There is an alternative that can give you a bit more accuracy. The IRS provides taxpayers with the “Where’s My Refund?” tool on their website. Upon filing your tax return for the current year, you can check back to the site for a status update. In order to take advantage of this, you’ll need the following information:

  • your social security number
  • your filing status
  • your expected refund amount

One of the few downsides of this tool is that you can only check the status of your most current year filed tax return. So if you were playing catch-up this year and filed your returns dating back from 2011, you’ll only be able to check the status of the most recent year that you filed.
