Q:

On what day does the IRS issue tax refunds?

A:

There is no one specific day when the IRS issues all tax refunds. The general rule is that tax refunds are issued about three weeks after a return has been processed by the agency.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) offers an extensive array of information on its web site that can help taxpayers. One particularly helpful feature called "Where's My Refund?" allows taxpayers to learn the date when they can expect to receive their refunds. To use this feature, an individual enters his Social Security number, tax filing status, and the monetary value of his refund into a web form. After the data is validated, the refund date is displayed.
