Generally, it takes an average American taxpayer 11 hours to prepare their taxes according to the IRS. Record keeping, tax planning, form submissions and other related activities are considered when calculating this time.

Of course, it can take much longer depending on the complexity of your return. Individuals who are self-employed or have multiple streams of income can expect to spend more time on their returns. Please allow up to 7-14 business days for tax preparation services due to the new tax laws and IRS processing delays.

To claim your child as your dependent, your child must meet either the qualifying child test or the qualifying relative test:

  • To meet the qualifying child test, your child must be younger than you and either younger than 19 years old or be a "student" younger than 24 years old as of the end of the calendar year.
  • There's no age limit if your child is "permanently and totally disabled" or meets the qualifying relative test.

In addition to meeting the qualifying child or qualifying relative test, you can claim that person as a dependent only if these three tests are met:

  1. Dependent taxpayer test
  2. Citizen or resident test, and
  3. Joint return test
You can check the status 24 to 48 hours after e-filing using the IRS app or visiting the Where’s My Refund? Tool online. If you filed a paper tax return, you can start checking your status 4 weeks after the IRS has received your documents.
