The first myth is that all refunds are delayed. The IRS issues more than nine out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days; eight in 10 taxpayers get their refunds faster by using e-file and direct deposit. Some refunds may be delayed “for a variety of reasons” (see the next item). Tell clients that good things come to those who wait without bugging their preparer.
