To file your taxes, you will need to bring in or upload your W-2 form(s), your social security number, photo ID, and any 1099 forms you may have received if you are an independent contractor or business owner.
If you file on time, you should get a refund check within 3 to 8 weeks from the date when the IRS receives your filing. Typically, tax returns filed online are processed faster than ones filed by mail. However, if you would like to access your funds even sooner, Sun Loan can help with a Refund Advance when you file before March 15th, 2023.
Easy! File online or in-branch with Sun Loan from January 3rd, 2023 to March 15th, 2023 and we’ll cut you a check for your expected refund amount – up to $6,000* – at the time of filing. Check out more details about our refund advance program.

Our certified tax prep specialists receive training annually to make sure they’re fully up-to-date on tax law changes and able to file on time, accurately, and using every refund opportunity available in your federal income taxes and well as in your state taxes for Alabama, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
We work hard to ensure your taxes are prepared on time, accurately, and with every opportunity to maximize your refund in mind, so there are no financial differences in filing online versus filing in-person. However, e-file options offer more convenience for those hoping to minimize travel and maximize their time, while in-person tax filing opens up opportunities to ask specific questions.
It depends! If you’re expecting a refund, filing early will help you get your cash in hand faster – especially since filing before March 15th, 2023 may make you eligible for a Refund Advance. However, if you expect to owe money, it may make more sense to wait until April to file so you have more time to save for your payment.
If you’re owed a refund, you will not be fined for filing late but your refund check will likely be delayed.
If you owe a payment to the IRS and don’t file by the deadline, the consequences are more serious. Penalties and interest start to accrue on the owed amount directly after the tax filing deadline. The late-filing penalty is 5% of the taxes due for each month your return is behind – up to 25% of your due balance if you file more than two months late.
