Checking your tax refund status online
You are required to wait at least three days after e-filing your tax return before checking refund status. This is because when you e-file your tax return to the IRS, it needs approximately three days to update the information on their website.
If you e-filed your tax return with TurboTax, you can check your e-file status online to know that the IRS accepted it. You will also receive an e-mail confirmation directly. Most of the taxpayers who e-file will get their tax refund sooner.
Step 2—Obtain a copy of your tax return.
Before you sit down to check the refund status, the IRS requires that you have some information from your tax return. If you have printed a copy of your tax return, you are going to need the following information from it –
- The Social Security number that you typed at the top of your tax return.
- The filing status that you selected, which you can find in the top portion of the first page of the tax form
- Get the exact amount of your tax refund. You can find this at the end of the tax return.
Step 3—Head to the “Where’s My Refund?” page on the IRS website.
When you access the “Where’s my Refund,” you will see three boxes to type your filing status, refund amount, and Social Security number. When you are done filling the form, you need to hit on the “Submit” button to receive the status of your refund.
