so my question is how long does it usually take the irs to recieve the check back from the bank?
and after they receive it how long before i get my check?

i know i researched this question a million times and im getting 6-8weeks some say two weeks... and all the questions were from 2006 and 2007 could it be a quicker process because its 2010.

please anyone let me know
