How do I check the status of my refund money?

Answer

You can check your refund status at www.irs.gov using the “Where’s my refund?” tool. You can also call the IRS refund hotline at 800-829-1954.

Refund information is usually available 24 hours after the IRS acknowledges receipt of your e-filed return.
