We filed our taxes online and the email stated that the refund would be direct deposited in account by March 17th. But I heard that the IRS deposits on fridays'. Is this true?

    While many banks do process ACH transfers in real time, many still batch process at end-of-day. If your bank processes in real time, your money will show up as early as Thursday evening, sometime after 6:00 PM Eastern when they start the ACH run. If your bank still batch processes, it would normally be the following Monday before your money is in your account.

    The extra days from the 14th to the 17th is because your bank will have it on the 14th but won't admit it because they need 2 business days to "process" the deposit. Really, bank-speak for using your money for 4 days for free.
