Due to mail delays and IRS staffing issues, processing paper tax returns could take 6–8 weeks or longer. Taxpayers are encouraged to file electronically. You will usually receive your refund within 3 weeks of the date when the IRS receives your return, even faster if you elect to have it directly deposited into your checking or savings account.
