We're unable to track down, research, or expedite your refund, as tax refunds are handled by the government.

The IRS releases most refunds within 21 calendar days after the e-file been accepted (received), not 21 days from the e-filing date. For mailed returns, allow 5-6 weeks from the postmark date.

Wait 24 hours after your federal return has been accepted before looking it up at Where's My Refund?. You also can go to Frequently Asked Questions about refunds on the IRS site.

State refunds are a bit different, with most states allowing filers to track their refunds via website. Since each state has a different procedure for tracking refunds, contact your state office or visit your state's website to check the status of your refund.
