Checking the Status of Your Federal Tax Refund

Generally, If you e-file, you can get refund information 72 hours after the IRS acknowledges receipt of your return.  If you file a paper return, refund information will be available within three to four weeks.  If you already filed your federal tax return and are due a refund, you can check the status of your refund online.

Where’s My Refund? is an interactive tool on the IRS web site at IRS.gov which will give you online access to your refund information nearly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To gain access you must provide your Social Security Number (or your spouse’s), your filing status and the exact refund amount shown on your return.

Where’s My Refund? also includes links to customized information based on your specific situation.  The links guide you through the steps to resolve any issues affecting your refund.  For example, if you do not get the refund within 28 days from the original IRS mailing date shown on Where’s My Refund?, you can start a refund trace online.

If you do not have internet access, you can check the status of your refund by calling the IRS TeleTax System at 800-829-4477 or the IRS Refund Hotline at 800-829-1954.
