Hi Portland88,


Welcome to the H&R Block community.


The IRS is in control once your return has been filed.  I can't tell you what their reasoning is, however I do know that when they verify an identity or review a return it can take significantly longer to receive your refund than the normal 21-day time frame.

So when the IRS says 9 weeks, do they still follow your option of direct deposit if that's what you chose, or do they change the way you will receive it?
