The Refund Transactions report file provides information about refunds for your FHA cases that were created or had a change in status during the current month. The file is updated weekly (available each Monday) with new statuses and newly initiated refunds. The complete Refund Transactions report file for the month is available on the 2nd day of the following month. Refunds with no change in status during the month are not included in the file. Any refund that goes to a returned or canceled status will be added to a later report when the status change occurs.
