How can I check the status of my refund?
Go to IRS.gov and use the Where’s My Refund? tool. You will need your SSN or ITIN #, filing status and refund amount.
The IRS2Go mobile app also allows you to track the status of your refund. The app is available in Spanish and English.
If the refund tracking tools aren’t presenting you with the information you need, you may contact the IRS by phone at 1-800-829-2040.
