I filed mines in early May 2020, and I got it direct deposited into my account back in mid May 2020.

Yep. I filed back in February and had mine within a week via direct deposit.

This does beg the question of whether you should be expecting a tax return or whether your withholding's are jacked up.

One school of thought says that if you are getting a tax refund, you are essentially being foolish as you're giving the government an interest free loan. In my case, the extra $3k a year or so I get back as a refund could be invested, but honestly I already invest a lot each year and that wouldn't go to it.

If anything, this would probably be spent on foolishness; just being honest Laughing

Which brings me to my next point. Some people aren't very disciplined with money and, so, the tax refund acts as a sort of savings account (albeit a no interest savings account).

There is no right or wrong answer to this. Just know that there are different choices and that receiving a tax refund isn't inherently the best financial decision if you'd otherwise be able to make the excess you pay to the government each paycheck grow into something bigger.
