A) You can check the status of your tax return and refund on the IRS website using the “Where’s My Refund?” tool. This tool will provide you with information about the status of your return, including whether the IRS has received it and if it is being processed.
To use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool, you will need to provide your Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), your filing status, and the exact refund amount shown on your tax return. You can access the tool on the IRS website or by downloading the IRS2Go app on your mobile device.
After you enter your information, the tool will display the status of your return. If the tool shows that your return has been received and is being processed, it means that the IRS has received your return and is working to process it. The tool will also provide an estimated date for when you can expect to receive your refund, if applicable.
It’s important to note that the “Where’s My Refund?” tool is updated once per day, usually overnight, so you should only check the tool once per day for updates. If you have questions or concerns about the status of your return, you can contact the IRS for assistance.
According to the IRS – You can use the Where’s My Refund? tool to follow your tax return from receipt to issuance of your refund. While your tax return is being processed you can follow it through three stages: Return Received,Refund Approved and Refund Sent.
