Where's my refund? Why your tax return may be taking longer in 2024

While patience may be a virtue, the Internal Revenue Service has a way of reaching a person's limits of virtuosity.

Tax season is entering crunch time — with the deadline just over three weeks away — and people who filed earlier in the window may wonder why a return is taking so long to process.

The IRS has received 1.7% fewer returns this tax season but has processed 2% fewer returns this year compared to 2023, according to Forbes.

This year's tax filing window is narrower as it opened a week later and will close nine days sooner than in 2023.

Here's why your tax return may be delayed.
