As each year comes to a close and the next tax filing season approaches, early tax filers start to think and ask the big question. When will I get my tax refund? The estimated 2016 IRS Refund Cycle Chart can now be found at countless websites for the 2016 tax season. Be cautious though, the charts you find are not “official” and the dates when you should expect to receive your refund will not all be the same. Why? The official IRS Refund Cycle Chart published by the IRS is no more. Since they stopped publishing an official refund cycle chart, various independent versions are now created each year based on estimates and prior year trends.

There are slightly different versions of the tax refund schedules scattered across countless websites to help tax refund hunters track down that magic date. These refund cycle charts will crop up more and more as the year comes to a close. Most are just guesstimates, some even educated guesses. Many times the refund charts you find are just duplicates of the prior year with slightly adjusted dates.

There are various tax situations for every taxpayer and this is why prediction as to when you will get your tax refund can be difficult; and, every year there will be glitches with one process or another at the IRS which could delay your refund. Since an official IRS refund calendar is a thing of the past, when taxpayers can expect to receive their tax refund in 2016 remains a mystic idea. This is likely why the IRS now firmly sticks to a general statement to everyone that “your tax refund should arrive within 21 days”.
