Where Is My Tax Refund? Here’s a Tool for Every Taxpayer!

Although the tax season has hardly begun, some early filers have already gotten their refunds. For most filers, you should get a tax refund within three weeks after completing their tax return with the IRS.

The uncertainty of the waiting period, on the other hand, might be frustrating, especially if you haven’t received your tax return in three weeks. If you want to know when your bank account will get a direct deposit, there’s no need to be concerned. As soon as the IRS accepts your tax refund, you may start tracking its progress.

Tax Refund Tracking Tool

To see if your 2021 income tax refund has been processed, use the IRS tracking tools. On your tax return, you’ll need to enter your Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, as well as your filing status (single, married, or head of household), as well as the amount of the tax refund in dollars. Check to verify if your tax refund has been traced for at least 24 hours before you send it in for payment (or up to four weeks if you sent it).

Enter your personal information and then click Submit on the IRS tool Where’s My Refund’s Get Refund Status page. If you successfully give your information, you’ll be sent to a page that displays your refund status. You may be asked to re-enter your personal tax information if you don’t get it right the first time. If all of the information looks to be correct, you’ll need to enter the date you filed your taxes, as well as whether you filed electronically or on paper.

You can check your tax refund status on the move with IRS2Go, a smartphone app. It’s available in both English and Spanish. You will be able to see whether your return has been received, approved, and sent out. To log in, you’ll need your Social Security number, filing status, and estimated tax refund amount.

You should check back the next day if your status hasn’t changed after 24 hours or more if the IRS hasn’t updated the data in this tool. According to CNET, if your tax return and refund are confirmed, you’ll be given a specific date by which you may expect your money.

IRS battles mounting backlog

Taxpayers who want to spend their tax return money this year may have to wait until next year after the IRS reported that its processing backlog is more than twice as great as previously estimated. The IRS is still trying to process close to 24 million tax return submissions from last year, according to a Washington Post report. In mid-December 2021, the tax agency reported 11.4 million unprocessed business and individual returns, which is more than twice as many.

Due to the bureaucratic chaos, many tax returns might be delayed for up to 10 months. According to statistics collated, 23.7 million individual and corporate forms were being held up because they require a manual procedure, which means someone in the tax office must work on them rather than pass them via the automated system.
