Tax Refund: How to handle a refund worth $3,200 that is still pending

Refunds have been awaited with great anticipation by millions of taxpayers across the country.

There are millions of taxpayers around the United States who are waiting for their tax refunds. 

For 8.2 million people, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had not yet processed their tax refunds as of July 1.

According to IRS data, the average tax refund this year is $3,263. It usually takes 

A few weeks for refunds to be processed, but this year it has been months, and taxpayers have not heard back.

How to speed up the process?

It has been more than four weeks since you have received your refund 

And you have not been notified of your progress, so the IRS has created a web page 

Where you can track your refund, "Where's my refund?".

It would be prudent to consult a tax expert if you do not receive a response from either side. 

Keep an eye on your mail and notifications as well. If you have not returned the taxes within 45 days, 

You will have to pay interest. After this time, the IRS has a legal period to make a refund.

Tax rates will increase from 4% to 5%, but that rate is taxable, so you won't see the full amount.
