I am trying to determine the IRS refund schedule–i.e., when refund will be deposited. Will the IRS direct deposit my refund on an exact day based on when I file?
You can usually expect the IRS refund to be issued and money received via direct deposit within 21 days of the date your e-filed return was accepted.
If you paper filed or requested a check, the refund money will take longer to process.
The IRS does not provide an exact date of refund based on your filing date.
