Frequently Asked Questions

Refund, Where's My Refund?

    Are you expecting a tax refund from the Internal Revenue Service this year? If you file a complete and accurate paper tax return, your refund should be issued in about six to eight weeks from the date IRS receives your return. If you file your return electronically, your refund should be issued in about half the time it would take if you filed a paper return - even faster when you choose direct deposit.

How do I track my refund?

    To check the status of an expected refund, use "Track My Refund" an interactive tool available at IRS Website. Simple online instructions guide you through a process that checks the status of your refund after you provide identifying information from your tax return. Once the information is processed, results could be one of several responses.
