Refund checks will begin to be processed after 1/12/06. Normally the refunds are issued 4-6 weeks following the receipt of your filed return and are mailed at the end of the week. You can speed up the process by 1-2 weeks by asking for your refund to be deposited into your checking or savings account. Enter the routing and account number information on the bottom of your return near the signature.
Efiling your return speeds it up another 2 weeks usually.
