Where’s My Refund?
The IRS provides a “Where’s my Refund” (https://www.irs.gov/refunds) tool to check the status of your refund. The “Where’s my Refund” tool is updated once daily, usually overnight. Your status is generally available within 24 hours upon the IRS receiving your e-filed return and 4 weeks after mailing your paper return.
If you are claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit, your refund won’t be released by the IRS until mid-February. The IRS expects the first EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in bank accounts or on debit cards by the first week of March, if you chose direct deposit and there were no other issues with the tax return.
