When Will I Get My Tax Refund?

This is what my posts tend to look like when they are in early draft form:

http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96596,00.html
there used to be a chart that gave you an estimated date for yoru refund to be direcdt deposited based on when you e-filed your return, not any more.
enter ssn, status (single etc) and exact whole dollar refund amount

I do this a lot, and have about a hundred draft posts on Blogger, dating back to the first few days after I started this site-- I am always seeing things I want to write about or jotting down ideas to flesh out into real posts later. The only problem is that it's hard to find the time to go back and finish them and sometimes the info gets stale. Or I discover that someone else has posted on the same topic in the meantime, as SingleMa just did! So please head on over to her site for a complete, attractively formatted, correctly spelled, unabbreviated explanation of how to find out when you'll get your tax refund! (My federal one was deposited today!)

There is still a chart.

Anne beat me to it! We preparers rely on that chart in advising our clients, but basically it's a Thursday mightnight deadline to the following week's Friday or the week after (depending on a paper check or direct deposit). There is talk of the IRS eventually going to a three times a week deposit schedule....

Hi Madame X, thanks for the referral link love. Although I like your draft post better. It has way more words than mine. LOL

Funny about the draft post thing s that I do it too. Probably common, but funny to me!
