When Will I Get My Tax Refund after I NETFILE Using StudioTax or GenuTax Standard 2014?

Several tax returns for the 2014 tax year were all filed on the same day using NETFILE in April 2015. It was interesting to find out when the tax payers got their tax refunds.

How Soon Did They Get Their Tax Refunds?

The tax returns were filed using the CRA online filing process called NETFILE on Friday April 17.

The tax refunds were deposited on Friday April 24
(One person’s passbook was updated on Saturday April 25. It said the money was going to be deposited on Monday April 27!)

So it took one week for the returns to be processed and the refunds to be direct deposited into the bank.
