Are you frustrated with wondering where your IRS refund check is? Do you wonder why it’s taking so long? Well there’s a way to find out where your refund is, and it’s right at your fingertips.
The best way to check your IRS tax refund status is to visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov. Why go to a strange website to enter your Social Security number when the IRS can give you the best, most up to date information regarding the status of your tax refund. The internet is full of sites that want to steal your information so play it safe and check the status of your tax refund on the IRS website only.
Once the IRS receives your tax return, it usually takes about a week for them to process it and send out your tax refund. That’s if you filed online (electronically). If you filed through the mail then you may wait a whole month for your refund.
Some delays in issuing refunds have been experienced but this was due to the IRS attempts to stop fraud and identity theft. This made the IRS refund cycle chart expand to about 10 to 21 days rather than 7 or 8 for the refunds to go out.
So, if you’re asking Yo, where is my refund, IRS? then look to the IRS website or call the IRS refund hotline to get the status of your refund. It’s fast and easy and you’ll know when to expect your check or direct deposit.
