How do I find the status of my refund?

First use the IRS Where's My Refund tool to see if you can find information about the status of your refund: https://www.irs.gov/refunds

 You should call the IRS only if:

  • It has been 21 days or more since you filed electronically or
  • More than 6 weeks since you mailed your paper return or
  • The Where’s My Refund? tool directs you to call.

 Phone numbers include:

  • Automated refund information: 800-829-4477
  • Refund Hotline: 800-829-1954
  • Tax Help Line for individuals: 800-829-1040

 If the Where’s My Refund tool returns no results, contact your tax preparer or the company you used to file your return.
