It’s tax season! Oh, yeah. The time of year when we get to say hello to W2s, tax preparers, and our beloved tax refund checks. The average refund check last year was $2,782 according to reports from the IRS. For many Americans, a lump sum of funds like that could mean a nice vacation, a new TV, paying down debt – you name it.
So if you’re excited about getting a refund check this year and want to know when you can expect your income tax check, here are the estimated dates from the filing schedule below and tools to help you better understand what to expect regardless of your unique situation.
Claiming any of these credits?
A new law requires the IRS to hold refunds claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until February 15. Taxpayers who’ve claimed either credit and have filed prior to this date may not have access to their refunds until the week of February 27.
Need more accurate tracking?
You may also track your refunds on the go using IRS2GO app or visiting the irs.gov and clicking on their “Where’s My Refund” feature for a more customized tracking method. You’ll need your social security number, filing status, and exact amount of the refund to view your results. If you have any difficulty understanding when you may be able to expect your tax check, it’s best to contact the IRS directly and speak to a live representative.
