Question

How do I check the status of my refund money?

Answer

If you filed with H&R Block, visit H&R Block’s Where’s My Refund page for your expected tax refund date.

You can also 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.

If you don’t receive your refund within five days of the date specified by the IRS, contact the IRS refund hotline.
