Who sent their taxes in the old fashioned way? How long did it take you to get them back? On their website it says mine were scheduled to be mailed on Friday the 14th, now im anxiously awaiting its arrival. Wonder how long it might actually take....

I mailed my son's in, but used direct deposit for the refund. It took about a month. If it was in the mail on the 14th, you should get it early this week.

I sent mine January 30th, but the papers were not going to be even processed until Feb. 11th because of the AMT forms. I got my refund by check 4 days ago.

Did they give you a mailing date on the website?

I mailed mine in and requested a paper check. The site said mine would be mailed on the 29th (of February) and about 3 days after that I received my refund

No, the website never even acknowledged that it was processing it. I called two days before I received the check to see what was going on and she told me I would receive it by xx day.

It was mail on Friday and you are complaining that you haven't gotten it yet (Monday)? A little premature don't you think?
