IRS Reports Glitch Delay Tax Refunds

Posted By Jim On 03/05/2012 @ 11:05 am In NEWS | 3 Comments

It seems the trusty Internet Revenue Service has experienced a bit of a hiccup this tax filing season. The IRS is reporting [3] that a software “glitch” has delayed the processing of “several million taxpayers” as they try to upgrade their systems. After writing about how to get your tax refund faster [4], we didn’t account for software upgrades and how a “glitch” delayed so many. As always, you can still track your tax refund [5] on the IRS website.

The IRS did re-iterate the timing differences for efiling vs. paper returns and for direct deposit vs. paper check. If you filed an electronic return with direct deposit, expect a refund in 7-13 days. Seventeen days for a mailed refund. Both are faster than last year.
