Use IRS’s “Where’s My Refund?” Tool to Check Status of Your Refund

So you’ve filed your income tax return, you’re getting a refund, and you’re eager to receive it. The IRS says it normally issues most refunds in less than 21 days. Taxpayers who mailed their tax return will experience a longer wait. Using the IRS’s “Where’s My Refund?” tool, you can check the status of your refund. Its tracker displays progress through three phases: Return Received, Refund Approved and Refund Sent. All you need to use the tool is your Social Security number, tax filing status (e.g., single, married filing jointly, head of household) and the exact amount of the refund claimed on your 2019 tax return. Go here to find out your refund’s status. Contact Cg with questions. © 2020
