First of all, it’s critical to understand that it is a myth that most of the IRS statuses are pending and it might take a while to issue a refund. The Internal Revenue Service is a serious and responsible organization. It will not postpone issuing a refund for no reasons or because it has too many things to do. Perhaps, it’s the taxpayer who did a mistake when filling out the blank or providing other details.

Once you check the tax refund status, you may want to speed up the process. It is better to start thinking about it at the earlier stage when you send the request. It is not a secret that traditional ways are not effective any longer. Sending a request via email or through the special form at one of the IRS-related services is way faster.

On the whole, it usually takes 6-8 weeks to process paper returns. Would you like to speed up significantly? It’s possible to get what you deserve in three weeks by filing electronically. While filing a refund, let the IRS know that you wish to deposit the money right into the personal bank account. If you don’t do that, they will issue a paper check, and it may take longer to wait.
