For those who have money to receive, the question is always the same: how long does it take for the IRS refund to arrive? The Ministry of Finance has revealed that the first refunds have already begun to be paid.

Last year, the Government established an average period of 17 days. As a rule, the IRS refund forecast is 12 days for those who deliver by the Automatic IRS and 19 days for those who deliver the IRS manually. However, the length of the process may vary from taxpayer to taxpayer.

How to check IRS refund status?

To consult the status of the IRS refund, first of all, access the Finance Portal and click on the IRS area, and then follow these steps;

1. Insert the Tax Identification Number (NIF) and the password to access the Finance Portal;

2. On the IRS personal page, in the side menu, on the left side of the screen, click on 'Consult Declaration';

3. Choose the year to which the income refers – 2022, in this case – and click on 'Search';

4. Check the status of the declaration, which can be one of the following:

- Right statement (means it was validated);

- Settlement Processed (means that the refund amount is already known);

- Reimbursement Issued (means that the Tax Authorities have already processed the transfer);

- Payment confirmed.
