There are two ways to check the status of your refund.
You will need the main filer’s social security number, your filing status and the amount of your refund.
- Go to the internet and type in www.irs.gov. Then click on “Where’s My Refund” and follow the prompts. OR –
- Call 1-800-829-4477 and follow the prompts.
Keep in mind that the IRS is still processing 2019 returns and the delay for federal refunds may be slower than usual, especially if you filed a paper return.
State refunds – they have been arriving before the Federal refunds. If you have not yet received your state refund, you will just have to be patient.
As long as your return has been e-filed or mailed to the proper agency, you will have to wait it out.
