Everyone’s situation is different. In general, if you filed your taxes online, you will likely receive your tax refund via direct deposit within 21 days.
If you mailed your return, you will likely receive your paper check within 6-8 weeks after the IRS processes your return.
If you don’t see your refund in your Varo Bank account, we haven’t received it from the IRS. We suggest you go to www.IRS.gov > Refund Status > Check My Refund Status. The IRS recommends you enter the exact dollar amount for your refund due to get an accurate response.
If you set up your tax refund to come to your Varo account, turn on push notifications to get instantly alerted when your refund hits your account. In the Varo Bank app, tap My Varo > Settings > Transactional Notifications.
We’ll post your tax refund as soon as we get it, so it will be available as soon as we receive it. We’ll see it at the same time you do and will not have additional information about your tax refund before it arrives.
