If you’re like most Americans this year, your 2022 tax refund is going to be a huge help in your budget or replenishing your savings account. The sooner it gets here, the sooner you’ll be able to rest a bit easier. Here at NTRC Tax & Finance in Stone Mountain, Georgia, we work hard this time of year to make sure you aren’t sitting around waiting and wondering “when will I get my refund” for very long.
Let’s take a look at what might impact the timing of your 2022 tax refund and when you can expect it to get to you.
What Impacts How Long It Will Take to Get My Return?
How You Filed for Your 2022 Tax Refund
If you file with the NTRC Tax & Finance team here in Stone Mountain, we submit your tax return as quickly as possible, time and date stamp it, and send it off to the IRS ASAP. If you file your taxes on your own and mail them in, it could take longer (and you don’t have that extra set of eyes to help catch errors!).
Even though taxes aren’t due until April 18th, you probably want to get the quickest return possible. We recommend you bring all of your tax documents to us and have our team file your return – this way, we can send it off as soon as possible. Contact our team today to learn more!
When You Sent in Your 2022 Tax Refund
When you get your 2022 tax refund will also depend on when you actually submit the paperwork to the IRS. For obvious reasons, getting your return in sooner will mean that you get your refund sooner!
Generally speaking, it takes about eleven days after your return is “accepted” for the IRS to send a direct deposit your way. For people receiving checks in the mail, they will be mailed out as early as 18 days after your return is accepted.
So, for example, if your return is accepted on February 13th, you could expect direct deposit around February 24th or the IRS to mail your check out on March 3rd. However, as you’ll see in the next section, there are some things that could cause that timeline to be delayed.
What Credits You Claimed for Your 2022 Tax Refund
If you claimed either or both of the following credits on your 2022 tax return, your refund could be delayed till early March:
So, When Will I Get My Refund?
Well, it depends on when your tax return is “accepted.” As we mentioned above, you’ll have your money in about 1-3 weeks if you file with us and do direct deposit (about 1 month if you prefer a paper check). If you mail in your tax return yourself, you’re looking at 3 weeks (direct deposit) to 2 months (paper check). So, get those documents to our team so we can file your 2022 tax return for you as soon as possible!
