The IRS indicates that it can take up to 21 days to issue a refund of an electronically filed return.  It's only been one week. You are well within the time period.

bfisher,

 

Welcome to the Community. I know it's frustrating waiting. Unfortunately the IRS is saying due to high volume they won't discuss the status of returns until 21 days after they have been received. Their Where's My Refund site is still the best place to check for progress.

 

Good luck.

17 days, and no DDD  nor approved status. This is not right. I do not see why it is taking so long. I have read so many negatives about HR BLOCK. Not just for this year. I will never use their services. We got suckered in with the "we can get you more" commercial. We got exaclty what I could have done by myself for FREE. Now we have to pay HR BLOCK close to $300 for what I could have done. And no money reufunded yet. I do see a common problem with all the complaints: HR BLOCK. Why? Many others with similar tax situation that didnt use HR BLOCK have their $ already. Also, what do you have a CHECK STATUS on your page? It does not inform me anything other than "CHECK IRS page". HR BLOCK is all bells and whistle but...that it. Again, I regret using HR BLOCK!

24 days and still haven't heard a word at all. The where's my refund site still just says still processing. What a joke. This is the last year I'm filing with H&R Block. Service has just gone down hill over the last 10 years.

When we electronically file your return the IRS either accepts the return or rejects the return. Once they accept the return we no longer have any control over what IRS does with it. I understand that returns that have EIC are taking longer to process this year.

Don't know but I electronically filed and IRS accepted my return within 15 minutes.  In the past, I have owed and I have received refunds -- both take a few weeks to process.

go down to your local irs office.. i had the same issue and i went down there and presented my drivers license and my current copy of  my return although that gets you back to square one and you will have to wait 6-8 weeks for your return to be processed... at least thats what my local office told me...

I hope I misunderstood what you just posted.  You filed a federal tax return electronically on Febr. 3rd and now you walked into an IRS office and tried to file another federal tax return with them?????   I sure hope the people at the IRS told you that return would be rejected and possibly cause you further problems.   If the IRS accepted an efiled return on 2/3/2015 you certainly DO NOT want to try to file another return for that year EVER!!

 

 

PEOPLE please DO NOT do this!!!    One filing and one acceptance of a return per year!   

 

If you have to amend your return that is a different story.   I am hoping perhaps that is what happened, but even at that it is a good idea to wait until you RECEIVE your refund BEFORE you submit an amended return to the IRS.   The service having to active returns to process at the same time is just asking for trouble!
