How to Get Your Refund Early in 2015 

Want your refund as quick as possible in 2015? We don’t blame you. Follow these steps to receive your refund as quickly as possible;

1. Get Organized: Gather together all your tax information, tax forms, etc. that you’ll need to prepare your tax return. You’ll avoid wasting hours of your time frantically searching for them last minute.

2. Create a RapidTax account: At the start of January, RapidTax will have the 2014 Tax Application aviable for users to enter their 2014 Tax Return information. With that said, create an account on RapidTax at the start of the new year and start entering your tax information.

3. Choose Direct Deposit: If you opt to have your tax refund direct deposited into your account than you’ll probably receive it within 21 days. Avoid having your refund mailed to you via an IRS check, it will take much longer.

4. E-File: Electronically filing is MUCH faster than paper filing. Thanks to sites like RapidTax, you can e-file your taxes with ease, avoid waiting for your tax return and refund to be processed via paper filing (and of course, you’ll be able to skip a trip to the post office).

5. Avoid Mistakes: If you mis-report information on your tax return, the IRS may reject your return or take longer processing your return. Either scenario will cause a delay in getting your refund. To avoid this from happening, double check the information you’ve entered before submitting your tax return.

  1. Interesting article . I loved the info , Does anyone know where I might obtain a sample IRS 706 form to fill out ?

  2. I filed my taxes on the 18th of jan. And my irs status still hasn’t changed. My sister did her a day after mine and already recieved hers. Should I be worried at all?!

    1. Hi Marisela,

      This is nothing to worry about. Each tax return represents a unique tax situation which in turn could progress through the IRS’ system in different ways. You should allow 21 days to receive your refund from the IRS. Take a look at our 2016 Refund Cycle Chart HERE. Keep in mind that these are approximate dates based on prior year trends since the IRS no longer discloses this information to taxpayers. Be sure to check the Where’s My Refund tool on the IRS website daily since they update every 24 hours.

  3. Hello. I e-filed my return and it was accepted on Jan 25. Today i received a 1099r that I completely forgot about. Its going to change my return by about $20 and obviously im going to fix it. Should I file it immediately or wait until I hear from the IRS. I desperately need my refund, and about how long will this hold it up?

    1. Hi Dave,

      Unfortunately, it’s not possible to provide you with an exact time frame of when you will receive your refund. However, the sooner you fix the mistake with the IRS, the better. Waiting for the IRS to reach out is not your best bet. This will take more time than necessary.

    1. Hi Cassandra,

      If you chose to receive your refund via direct deposit, then based on prior year trends, you can expect your refund by February 12th, the latest. Take a look at our article with the current year refund cycle chart HERE.
