U.S. Tax Authorities apply progressive taxation system. The refundable amount is calculated according to the total income and tax withheld during the fiscal year. If you wish to know the approximate refundable amount from the USA, try our tax refund calculator.

Is Form W-2 necessary to process my taxes?

Yes, it is necessary to get a tax refund. You should receive it by February 15th from your employer to the address you provided. However, if you did not receive it, we can contact your employer and get it for you, for an additional fee.

I am not receiving any refund, do I still have to file a tax declaration?

Yes, under U.S. law, if you received income in the USA, you are obliged to file a tax declaration. After you register on our website and send us your documents, we will calculate your taxes. If there is no refund, we will send you information on how you can file your tax declaration and meet your U.S. tax obligations.

How long does it take to refund taxes from the USA?

The tax filing season in USA starts from February each year, when U.S. Tax Authorities provide the declaration forms. If you submitted all the necessary documents, RT Tax fills and submits the tax refund documents to U.S. Tax Authorities as quickly as possible. After that, the tax refund period depends on the U.S. Tax Authorities. It might take 4 – 6 months, or in rare cases, even longer.

What happens if my file is under review by the U.S. Tax Authorities?

The refund process will take longer if your file is selected by the U.S. Tax Authorities for review. Recently, we’ve observed that if you file your U.S. taxes for the first time, it will likely be selected for an identity check, which will delay the tax refund process.

How will I get my refund?

U.S. Tax Authorities usually issue a bank transfer so you should receive your tax refund to your confirmed bank account. However, in some cases, tax refund can be issued by a paper check. As these checks are personal, RT Tax won’t have a possibility to cash them. So we will send a tax refund check to your home address.
