The Where's My Refund tool is now better than ever
The IRS recently rolled out a new and improved Where's My Refund tool. This updated tool allows taxpayers to check the status of their refunds for the 2021, 2020, and 2019 tax years.
To use the tool, taxpayers will need their Social Security number or ITIN, filing status and expected refund amount from their original tax return for the year they're checking.
About the Where's My Refund tool
Using this tool, taxpayers can start checking the status of their refund within:
Eligible people who haven't filed a 2021 tax return yet, including those who requested an extension to file, can use IRS Free File to prepare and file their federal tax return for free. Filing electronically is fast, accurate and secure. When an individual chooses direct deposit their refund goes directly from the IRS into their bank or financial account getting them their refund in the fastest time possible. When the IRS accepts the electronically filed return, taxpayers can track their refund with the Where's My Refund tool.
