It’s that time of the year again! Tax season is here! Tax documents are arriving and you’re wondering what to deduct from where and whether or not you really need an accountant. But one question that has an easy answer is “Where’s my refund?” If you’re lucky enough to be getting a refund, the IRS has put together a nifty website that can get you a much needed answer with a few clicks of your mouse.
First things first. In order to get a refund, you have to file your tax return, so don’t wait until the last minute! Once you’ve done that, make your way over to the refund status section of IRS.gov to check on your tax refund. Make sure you wait 72 hours to check after the IRS acknowledges receipt of your e-filed return. If you went the snail mail route, you’ll have to wait up to four weeks.
For finding out the answer to Where’s my refund, you’ll need a few key pieces of information:
–Your SS# (or IRS individual taxpayer identification number).
–Your filing status.
–The exact refund amount.
Have tax questions? IRS.gov has answers. Their website is available 24/7 for all your tax needs.
Where’s my refund? Hopefully I’m getting one.
