Hello friends,

I went and got my taxes done at H&R block on Monday I chose to have my refund back in 6-14 days. Something big came up that I need to pay for. Has anyone gotten their money back sooner then that? I chose to have it directly deposited into my account.

Thanks a lot.
Marks

The IRS Refund cycle chart doesn't even show projected refund dates earlier than Jan 25. Since refund anticipation loans are gone now, the best you can do is probably what H&R Block has done, which generally doesn't hit your account until a week after the IRS accepts your e-filed return.

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to file so early? year-end tax statements (W-2, 1099, etc.) are rarely sent out before January 31.

The E-Copy (PDF) of My W2 was out on my company HR site on 1/3, The Bank, has my 1099 (the amount not the form) on its website on 1/1.

But I have Other 1099's, K1 etc that I won't get till mid Feburary. But for simple W2/1099's I could have filed last week.

Because you already had H&R Block file your return without your other documentation, you're going to have to have an amendment done when they arrive. I recommend [b]NOT[/B ]going back to H&R Block to have it done. They'll overcharge you and rip you off. My recommendation is a private tax preparer that knows what they're doing.

Why would Marks have to file an amended return? He just wants his refund sooner. He didn't state that he's missing any documentation.

I'm guessing that moved misread and thought flyonpa was the OP. When I first read flyonpa's response, I thought he was the OP until I scrolled back up and looked.

It is possible that someone can do their returns this early. My husband and I have a pretty simple return, we don't even itemize. The only things we look for at this point are our bank statements (available online early) and one W2 for each of us. His always comes early, I expect it in the next few days. Mine always comes late because we don't do them until right before January 31st. If I could convince my boss to do them earlier, I could do my taxes mid January.

I completed my return on 12/29, but I can't file electronically until 1/17. That's when the IRS begins receiving electronic returns. I'm hoping my employer prints my W-2 by then so I can check my calculations before I file. I used my last pay stub (have for several years) to complete my tax return. So far, it's been correct. I don't file until I can verify all numbers using my W-2.

Jan 17th is the earliest the IRS will accept e-filling and start processing paper returns. You can send a paper return early, but it will sit until the 17th.

For the OP - it will probably be closer to the full 14 days to get the refund since a lot of people will be doing the same thing to try to get their refunds ASAP. I don't see how anyone could get any sort of refund earlier that that.

H&R Block is a rip off. They charge an arm and a leg to basically do data entry.
