If you're one of the people who has excessive taxes taken from your income throughout the year so as to not owe the government, you probably get upset at the amount withheld with each check; and if that's the case, you probably sweat your W-2(s), contribution statement(s) and other documentation needed to file a tax return.

But if you're expecting a return, you want to know at least an estimated date when you'll receive it, right? After all, that often determines whether you go for the Refund Anticipation Loan or if you wait it out and collect ALL of the money due to you!

Well, CPA Practice Advisor has issued an estimate of projected refund dates, based on the date the filed return was/is accepted by the IRS.

If your return was accepted by Jan. 27, the return will be sent by direct deposit around Feb. 7 or mailed around Feb. 14.
If your return was accepted by Feb. 3, the return will be sent by direct deposit around Feb. 14 or mailed around Feb. 21.
If your return has not yet been accepted, click here to see the estimated date of your return, pending the date of acceptance.
