Live stress-free with IRS’s new and improved Where’s My Refund tool. The update includes access for taxpayers to view their refunds from previous years. Taxpayers can now view refunds dating back to 2019! The only information needed to access the Where’s My Refund tool is your SSN (or ITIN), anticipated refund amount, and the taxpayer’s filing status.
Taxpayers can determine precisely what the status of their refund is by using this new tool. This is very beneficial for budgeting and planning purposes. The refund status will either be in received, approved or sent mode. This feature essentially gives users a forecast of where their money stands. Once the refund is filed, taxpayers can begin seeing their refund status 24 hours after filing electronically, 3-4 days after filing previous years electronically, and four weeks after mailing. Information about your refund has never been easier to access and is at your fingertips. Visit www.irs.gov for more information.
