Generally, the process takes 7 to 10 days. This depends on when the taxpayer’s return is accepted and funded by the IRS. The IRS, however, no longer publishes a payment cycle chart. As such, the returns will fund when the IRS, if at all, funds the returns.
A bank product tax return is a tax return electronically filed without collecting any fees in advance from the taxpayer. It works this way: (1) At the time the return is prepared, the taxpayer will sign an Application Agreement for an Electronic Refund Product; (2) The bank creates a temporary bank account in the name of the taxpayer; (3) Once the IRS funds the return, if at all, the bank transfers the taxpayer’s tax refund into the temporary bank account it created for the taxpayer; (4) Bank pays ATO Affiliate its share of tax prep fees; (5) Bank pays ATO its share of the tax prep fees; (6) ATO Affiliate receives notification through our tax software a check is ready to print or a debit card is funded. In the tax business, we call this type of bank product a Refund Transfer or “RT” (Also, some refer to it as a Refund Anticipation Check or “RAC”).
