You can go online to check the status of your 2016 refund 24 hours after the IRS receives your e-filed return or 4 weeks after you mail a paper return. If you filed Form 8379 with your return allow 14 weeks (11 weeks if you filed electronically) before checking your refund status. Be sure to have a copy of your 2016 tax return handy because you will need to know the filing status, the first SSN is shown on the return and the exact whole-dollar amount of the refund. To check on your refund, do one of the following.
- Go to IRS.gov/refunds
- Download the free IRS2GO app to your smartphone and use it to check your refund status.
- Call the automated refund hotline at 1-800-829-1954
