That’s still only about three weeks from now anyway, and you do need to file electronically if you want that refund in 21 days. Paper returns take slightly longer. Also, a reminder that the tax cut passed by Congress and signed by President Trump last month is for the 2018 tax year. You’ll be filing for 2017. In a separate statement from the I-R-S, the agency says you could begin to see changes to your paycheck regarding the tax cut, sometime in the next few weeks.
