Where is my federal refund?
If you filed your tax return and are expecting a refund from the IRS, visit www.irs.gov and click on “Where’s my refund?” to check your federal refund status.
The IRS usually has information about your refund a few days after your return was e-filed, or three to four weeks after mailing a paper return. You will need to provide your Social Security number, filing status and the exact refund amount expected.
