Are you one of the lucky individuals waiting for the Federal Government to send you a refund check? Curious about the status?
Now there is a tool you can use to check on the status of your refund. Simply click on this link to the IRS' website, type in your social security number and your filing status and you answer will appear Where's My Refund?
According to the IRS you should check your status within 24 hours after they have received your e-filed tax return, or 4 weeks after mailing your paper return. When the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund, you can see your actual personalized refund date. Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days after they receive your tax return, it’s possible your return may require additional review and take longer.
