The majority of people are aware that a tax refund usually arrives within 21 days of filing income tax returns. However, in order for these refunds to arrive on time, the applications must be error-free and electronically filed. There are also times when applications require extra review, causing significant delays, and receiving them within 21 days is difficult.

Stimulus Check and Credit Details Must Be Filled Up Carefully

According to Susan Tompor, a personal finance expert, the IRS has advised people not to wait more than three weeks for payment. The policy of distributing stimulus checks to the public will be the most typical reason for tax refund delays. The federal government has approved three separate stimulus checks for individuals, while some states have issued their own stimulus checks using budget funds.

One person’s credit and stimulus check become the source of silly mistakes on the tax returns. As a result, even a small typing error can cause a significant delay. This season, the majority of the mistakes are due to the Recovery Rebate Credit and the Child Tax Credit. As a result, the IRS’s warning must be regarded seriously.

According to Steber, the IRS is dealing with updated tax issues, paper issues, and other worries, and it will take more than 12 weeks for the IRS to settle these issues. If the taxpayer owes the IRS money after the issue is resolved, he will be subject to interest and penalties.

According to sources, the IRS had issued nearly 52 million refunds as of March 18th. The average refund is $3,305, which is a 13% increase over last year’s total amount.
