Federal Refunds


The Where’s My Refund? tool has the most up to date information available. It is updated daily so you don’t need to check more often.

You can use the tool to check the status of your return:

  • 24 hours after e-filing a tax year 2022 return

  • 3 or 4 days after e-filing a tax year 2021 or 2020 return

  • 4 weeks or more after filing a paper return


Where’s My Refund? has a tracker that displays progress through 3 stages: (1) Return Received, (2) Refund Approved and (3) Refund Sent.

You will get personalized refund information based on the processing of your tax return. The tool will provide an actual refund date as soon as the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund.

You will need:

  • Your Social Security or taxpayer ID number

  • Your filing status

  • The exact refund amount on your return

For the latest information on IRS refund processing see the IRS Operations Status page.
