If you're expecting a tax refund, you're likely eager to know when you'll receive it. Here are some steps you can take to track your tax return:
Visit the IRS website: The IRS has a tool called "Where's My Refund?" that allows you to check the status of your refund. You'll need to provide your Social Security number, filing status, and the exact amount of your expected refund.
Use the IRS2Go app: If you prefer to check your refund status on your phone, you can download the IRS2Go app. It's available for free on both iOS and Android devices.
Contact the IRS: If you don't have internet access or prefer to speak with someone directly, you can call the IRS's toll-free number at 1-800-829-1040.
Remember that it can take several weeks for the IRS to process your tax return and issue your refund, so try to be patient. If it's been longer than expected, however, it's a good idea to check the status to make sure there aren't any issues or errors holding up your refund.
