Tip #3: Most refunds are issued in less than 21 days after the tax returns is accepted by the IRS. If you file a return containing the Earned Income or Child Tax Credits, you will not receive your refund before March 1. For more information, visit

About the weekly Tips:

Normally, the Alaska Business Development Center would send out teams to rural communities around the state to help people file. But this year, they're providing assistance remotely. To get the word out about how to file taxes, ABDC is sending us a weekly tax tip, which we air during the Friday morning and noon newscasts.
