Where’s my refund?
If you electronically filed your return and requested direct deposit, you can expect your refund to arrive 8-21 days after your tax return was filed.
If you filed your return by paper mail and/or did not provide direct deposit information, you can expect your refund to arrive within 4-6 weeks after your tax return was filed. Note: As of August 2022, the IRS says it could take 6 months or more to process your tax return.
To check on the status of your refund, go to www.irs.gov and click on “Get Your Refund Status.” You’ll need your tax return handy. Note: The tool can be used for 2019-2021 tax returns but not for state returns or years prior to 2019.
Where can I get a copy of my tax return transcript or tax account transcript?
