Where's My Refund?

The IRS provides a secure web site, Where's My Refund?, to help you track the progress of your income tax refund. Whether you filed electronically or on paper, chose direct deposit, split refund, or paper check, you can find out what's happening with your refund.

In order to use this tool, you must know:

  • Your SSN or ITIN
  • Filing status
  • Exact amount of refund

At this site, in addition to tracking your refund, you can:

  • Start a refund trace
  • Change your address if the IRS was unable to deliver your refund
