How long does it take to get your tax refund direct deposited into your account?

I had a family friend do my taxes for me and she did the federal online and the state on paper and i mailed it in. This was 3 weeks ago. They were both supposed to be direct deposited into my bank account and i havent recieved anything from the IRS about any discrepencies. I was told i should have recieved it by now from other people i know. Does Anyone know what might be going on?

You need to check the "Where's My Refund" link with the IRS. I have sent the link below. You will be required to enter your SS#, your filing status and the amount of your refund.

Another suggestion is to check the routing and account numbers that were entered to be sure there is no error. If there is this would mean the refund would have to be sent to you instead of directly deposited.

I hope this helps.
