There are several ways to check where’s your tax refund, have a try.

Federal Tax Return

IRS Website

Every year after you filing a tax return (24 hours after E-File or 4 weeks after mailing), you can visit the IRS website to check your tax return status.

Here’s what you should do:

  1. prepare all the information: SSN/ITIN, filing status, refund amount
  2. visit IRS website: www.irs.gov/refunds
  3. click the button “Check My Refund Status”
  4. conplete the information and click “submit

If all good, you will see your tax return status: Return Received, Refund Approved or Refund Sent.

IRS2Go App

You can download the IRS2Go App in your phone and use it to check the tax refund status. Same as in the IRS website, all you need to write is SSN/ITIN, filing status and refund amount. Click “Get Status”, everything’s done!
