The way to access IRS transcripts: this is how you will have the fastest tax refund
Having an accurate tax return is crucial for ensuring a fast tax refund as any errors will cause a delay.
Once your tax filing has been sent it can be an anxious wait to see if you will be the recipient of a tax refund. The IRS has already briefed that refunds will be lower this year, with the data now released to support this. We are a month into tax season so if you filed your return at the beginning of the season it should have been processed.
If it hasn’t arrived yet it means you have made an error as it should take 21 days for the IRS to send your refund. Making sure all your information is correct is the only guarantee that the refund can be sent as any error will slow down the prcoess.
If you have made a mistake you can check the IRS website for assistance. 24 hours after submitting your 2022 income tax return you should be able to track the status of your refund using the ‘Where’s My Refund?’ online portal.
