Track Your Tax Refund
If you filed a complete and accurate paper tax return, your refund should be issued in about six to eight weeks from the date the IRS receives your return. If you file your return electronically, your refund should be issued in about half that time – even faster when you choose direct deposit.
You can check on the status of your refund seven days after you e-filed your return or four to six weeks after mailing your return.
Here’s the fastest, easiest way to find out about your current year refund: Go to www.irs.gov and click on the “Where’s My Refund” link.
