How can I get my personal refund information?
Go to the Where's My Refund? online tool to check on the status of your refund.
You can generally get information about your refund 72 hours after IRS acknowledges receipt of your e-filed return, or three to four weeks after mailing a paper return.
You'll need to provide the following information from your tax return:
If your refund was returned to us by the U.S. Postal Service you may be able to change the address we have on file for you, online. Where's My Refund? will offer this service to you if you're eligible.
Generally, you can file an online claim for a replacement check if it's been more than 28 days from the date that we mailed your refund. Where's My Refund? will give you detailed information about filing a claim if this situation applies to you.
