Where’s My Tax Refund?
Many of you are on the ball with your taxes. You filed early. You’re getting a refund. So now you’re wondering, or soon will be,“Where’s my money”? Don’t bug the mail carrier. The Internal Revenue Service has a better way to track down your refund… either by phone or online.
The IRS has an online tool called “Where’s My Refund?” To get started, you’ll need some information:
