When can I expect my tax refund 2024? IRS Return Schedule and Status!

Starting Monday, Internal Revenue Services has began accepting tax returns and according to Mark Steber from Jackson Hewitt’s Chief Tax Information Office they should expect larger refunds this year than they received last time around.

When can I expect my tax refund 2024?

On January 29th, the IRS initiated its tax returns filing season and taxpayers have until April 15 to submit their returns or opt for an extension which gives you until mid-October to file.

Massachusetts and Maine residents who can file tax returns by April 17 due to state holidays; residents in disaster zones designated by the federal government will have additional time.

Question #1 is, When can I expect my tax refund? According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), most taxpayers receive their refund within 21 days from filing their returns; so, for instance, if you file your return now you should see it arrive within 21 days!

Some tax returns can take more than 21 days for review; paper returns tend to take more time so filing online returns would likely save time and effort.

Be mindful that filing taxes with earned income tax credit (EITC) or additional child tax Credit (ACTC) claims may require extra time, however. Don’t panic: filing with these credits could yield greater refunds to many parents.

Remind yourself: the sooner your return is filed electronically, the quicker it will reach its target within 21 or two weeks.

EITC/ACT Refund Date

As previously discussed, filing tax returns with EITC or ATCT claims could cause your refund to be delayed, as the IRS must hold these returns until mid-February as they fall under Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act EITC/ACTC requirements.

This change helps the IRS prevent fraud and ensure the appropriate people get credit. As stated by them, EITC/ATCT refunds should arrive by February 27 if direct deposit has been chosen with no issues surrounding your tax returns.

As 2024 comes to an end and tax preparation season kicks in, make sure your return is filed electronically and thoroughly so you receive your refund within 21 days. Mark your tax filing schedule on your calendar so you don’t miss any opportunities this year to benefit from tax refunds!
