The IRS refund schedule is the document that gives you an estimated date as to when you can expect your IRS refund to be delivered to you after the IRS has received your filed taxes. The date that you receive the funds mainly relies on when the IRS accepts your tax return and not the day that you actually filed your tax return.
If you file online with TurboTax, your tax return will automatically be sent to the IRS as soon as they start accepting tax returns. Once the IRS acknowledges receipt of your e-filed return, you can usually get your exact tax refund date within 72 hours.
The IRS refund schedule recommends that if you want to receive your money faster that you go with the direct deposit via your bank option. They estimate that you should receive your refund via direct deposit in a week after your tax return has been filed in the event that you have decided
to file your tax returns electronically.
