Understanding your refund status

1
Return received
The IRS has your tax return and is processing it
1
Refund approved
The IRS has approved your tax refund. Your refund should be sent to you soon.
1
Refund sent
The IRS has sent your refund. It's on the way – or you may have already received it.

If you chose the American Express Serve® card

You may receive your refund as early as the same day it's sent by the IRS – up to two days earlier than standard direct deposit.

If you chose direct deposit

Your tax refund will be sent to your bank the same day the IRS sends your tax refund. It will typically take 3-5 days for your bank to process, depending on your bank.

Note: Due to tax laws in place to reduce fraudulent claims for refunds, taxpayers who claim the EITC or similar credits may not receive a credit or refund until at least mid-February for 2018 tax-year filings.
