1 According to the IRS website, most refunds are disbursed in less than 21 days, when filed electronically. If a paper tax return is filed, the refund should be issued in about six to eight weeks from the date IRS receives the return. If a customer chooses direct deposit; it may take additional time after the disbursement of the return for their financial institution to post the funds to their account. Refunds may be delayed longer for other reasons. If this happens, you should contact the IRS directly by calling the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Line (800-829-1040).
