Federal Refund Status
Be certain to have a copy of your tax return handy. You will need to provide the following information from your return:
- Your Social Security Number (or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number)
- Filing status (Single, Married Filing Join Return, Married Filing Separate Return, Head of Household, or Qualifying Window(er))
- The exact whole dollar amount of your refund
Generally, you can access information about your Federal refund 72 hours after the IRS acknowledges receipt of your e-filed return, or three to four weeks after mailing a paper return.
