How Can I Use H&R Block Software to Check My Refund Status?

We know you want to get your refund as soon as possible, so we make it easy for you to use H&R Block to check your refund status.

First, in H&R Block’s tax software, you can check your return status. If you e-filed your return:

  1. Open your original e-filed return in the H&R Block Tax Software. You can’t check the status from a duplicate file.
  2. Click the Check Status link next to the return file in the Continue with a Saved 2019 Return list box.

If your return status is IRS Accepted, you can check the refund status for your H&R Block return either by:

  • Using the H&R Block Where’s My Refund tool
  • Calling the IRS refund hotline at 800-829-1954 or 800-829-4477

Refund information is usually available 72 hours after the IRS acknowledges receipt of your e-filed return. The IRS issues more than nine out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days from the day they’re accepted. No one can get you your money faster than H&R Block!

Using H&R Block to Check My Refund Status on a Mailed Return

If you filed your return by mail, you can call the IRS refund hotline or check your refund at www.irs.gov/refunds. However, your refund status won’t be available until the IRS receives your return.

If you don’t receive your refund on the date specified by the IRS, contact the IRS refund hotline.

You can also visit H&R Block’s Where’s My Refund page to find your e-file status and state refund status.
