How long does e-File direct deposit take?

Does anyone know how long it generally takes to get your IRS refund if you did e-file? I used the H & R Block Tax Cut software and filed about a week ago, and I seem to remember it being faster last year.

I used the TurboTax free e-file. I sent it on the 8th and the email I received said it should be deposited by the 18th. I'm still waiting. I could have sworn it was faster last year, also.

That's what I thought. I checked all over the FAQs on the IRS site and like a typical government website, it's completely useless.

This year seems to be slower for me as well. I got my state return a few days ago, no sign of federal.

Entered ours in Web TurboTaxon the 10th (about 8pm), got notification on the 11th that it would be here by the 18th.

On another note, we got our state refund in 4 days. I was floored how quick that came, considering they're usually way late on mailing refunds.

Did our taxes on the 5th at H&R Block and are still waiting for Federal. Got State return on Monday. I swear it was like a week last year.

It goes faster the other way; I owed a little. I mailed my returns on the 11th, they probably got them on the 14th, and my checks cleared my bank on the 16th. Who says government can't move fast.

Wow - I just checked my bank account and my state return already posted. I filed Saturday (12th) and got it Wednesday (16th).

No federal yet however.

My state return was back within 5 days. Federal took 8.


Just read your post Pemo. Gotta love the state of MN. They tax the heck out of us....but at least we get our refunds back fast!

Well my state has varied but I've efiled my federal return for the past 5 years and it's been deposited exactly 9 days after filing each year.

That IRS webpage says mine is supposed to be deposited today. My online bank statement doesn't show it yet though. Of course, it doesn't show my paycheck deposited today either. Probably will show up tommorrow or this afternoon.

So, 9th-18th = 11 days or so. Not bad turnaround.

It said I should get it today, and it was deposited today.

Now,... off to buy a new car.
