3 ways to track a tax refund

First in online through the IRS website.

Another way is to use the IRS2Go app, which you can get on any Apple or Android store, as well as Google Play.

Finally, you can also call the IRS refund hotline at 1-800-829-1954. This is a great way for people without access to the web.


In order to track your refund, you need certain information. This includes your Social Security number, your filing status, and the exact amount of your refund.

You can start checking 24 hours after e-filing, but if you applied for the earned income tax credit it may take longer.

If you filed by mail then you won’t be able to check the status of your refund for at least four weeks. There is also a delay filers are warned about that can run from weeks to months long.

The IRS has said if you’re waiting, do not file again and do not call.

There is no exact date you can expect your refund after filing, but a return with no issues that is e-filed should take up to 21 days..

If you track, you’ll likely see that your refund is either received, approved, or sent.
