This year’s tax season is expected to be closer to normal than the baffling years of 2020 and 2021.
The deadline for filing tax returns was previously extended in both of the previous years, but this year’s deadline is set for April 18, 2022.
In Washington, D.C., a national holiday was observed on April 15, so the original due date was postponed until the following business day.
Because Americans will be filing their tax returns at the normal times again, refunds will be issued within the normal two-to-three-week period following the acceptance of a returned return.
How Will the IRS Tell Me How Long It Will Take to Get My Refund?
Tax refunds can take a long time to arrive, depending on a variety of factors.
You may get your refund sooner if you have already filed your taxes.
There may be a delay in your refund if you are claiming child tax or earned income tax credits because of regulations put in place to prevent fraud.
- It will take longer to process your return if you mail it rather than file it electronically.
- The amount and speed of a refund are both impacted by outstanding federal debt.
- Typically, a two- to three-week delay in claiming credits is required.
