When Will My Tax Refund Be Mailed ?
There are two ways of getting your refund check. This can be either sent via mail. If you have sent the return through paper form or it can be directly deposited to your account incase if you have e-filed your return.
Those of you who have electronically filed your tax return you may expect your refund check within two weeks from the date of submission and those who have asked for a paper check it normally would take three weeks to get your check. And, finally who have mailed their submission they can expect at least six weeks to get the delivery of their refund check.
Now in case your form is amended due to some reason first of all you will not be able to access your refund status from the website directly. In such a circumstance, you need to approach IRS through mail. Since the time taken in such forms is more therefore it could take anywhere between eight to twelve weeks for clearing such refunds from the IRS.
In case of overpayments and underpayments, the refund checks have to be dealt carefully. If you receive a check for the refund that has an amount mentioned more than you claimed, you must not cash the check until you get a notice from the IRS in writing about the difference in amount. At the same time, if the check received by you shows an amount which is less than what you claimed, you may cash the check but you should wait for at least two weeks before taking any action. The reason could be many if you do not receive any notice, sometimes the IRS deduct any dues or debt against you through your refund amount.
