Refund tracking instructions
You can generally expect the IRS to issue your refund in less than 21 calendar days after we receive your tax return.
Use this tool to check on the status of your refund. It provides the most up-to-date information the IRS has. There’s no need to call us unless Where’s My Refund? tells you to do so. Where’s My Refund? is updated every 24 hours – usually overnight.
Tracking your tax refund is easy with our Tax Refund Tracker. Simply select from the menu below to find out when you will receive your federal and/or state tax refunds.
