Here's When You Can Expect Your 2017 Tax Returns

Be honest, you could probably use a little extra cash in your wallet right now. The funds you got over the holidays are far gone and the credit card bills are certainly stacking up. It's tax season, however, and that may screw with your money-saving plans. Unless, of course, you plan on receiving a decently-sized return. If that's the case, then you're probably thinking, "when will I receive my 2017 tax returns?"

There are plenty of resources that can help you to pinpoint just how long it'll take for your return to show up. But remember that there are other factors that may delay your return a bit. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), you could receive your tax return in less than 21 days after filing. The site noted, however, that there's a possibility your tax return may take longer to come through, with reasoning such as how long it takes for your refund to be posted or for how long it takes for you to receive your tax return in the mail.

However, the signs are looking up because Forbes noted that the IRS anticipates to issue more than nine out of 10 taxpayer refunds in less than 21 days. The site further noted that you may want to sign up for a direct deposit since that is the fastest method you can use to receive your return.

According to Forbes, you and fellow taxpayers have a few extra days this year to file your tax return. That may sound like music to your ears if you're reading this and realizing you're late in the game. After all, to get a tax return you do have to file your taxes in time, so just make sure you get it in by the due date on April 18.

More time to file your taxes for more cash? I'm sure you're saying "yes please, count me in." Don't worry, soon enough your wallet will be full and you'll be rolling around in cash in no time.
