The IRS suggests to file electronically and choose direct deposit in order to speed up your refund. The IRS says most taxpayers should receive their refund within 21 days of when they file electronically, if they choose direct deposit and there are no issues with their tax return.
However, you should not rely on the timing of your refund if you need to make a major purchase or pay a bill.
Refunds that include the Earned Income Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) will not be received BEFORE mid-February.
The IRS expects most EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available to taxpayers by February 28 if they choose direct deposit and there are no issues with their return.

You should have received IRS Notice 1444 for the first Economic Impact Payment, and we are mailing Notice 1444-B for the second Economic Impact Payment.
