One of the biggest perks of filing your tax returns on time and accurately is that it opens up a possibility that you could be entitled to a tax refund. The Internal Revenue Service will process your tax refund within 21 days, provided there was no incomplete information or incorrect entries in your tax return. This blog will help you find out how you can check the status of your tax refund on TurboTax. You can also call the TurboTax customer support number and consult an expert to get a more detailed idea about the e-filing process and the steps you need to follow to check the status of your refund.
Steps to Check Tax Refund Status
After you get confirmation that your federal tax return was received by the IRS, you will be able to track the status of your refund online. The Internal Revenue Service has a ‘Where’s my Refund?’ site that allows you to check the status of your tax refund. Here are a couple of things you can keep in mind while checking your tax refund status online:
Be patient. Once you e-file your tax returns, you will need to wait for approximately three days so that your information is updated on the website.
If you filed your tax returns using TurboTax, you could check your e-file status online to ensure your return was accepted by the IRS.
You can also check your registered email address and see if you received confirmation from the IRS about the tax return.
It is imperative that you have certain basic information about your tax returns before you check your refund status online.
Be sure to take a printout of your tax return and make a note of the Social Security number at the top of your tax return.
Since the IRS also requires your filing status, you should check the top section of the first page to your tax form to find the current status.
In addition to the filing status and the Social Security number, you need to know the exact amount of your tax refund.
Open your internet browser and visit the “Where’s My Refund?” page on the official IRS website.
Enter the relevant tax details in the fields provided and press ‘Submit’ located on the top of the page to view the status of your tax refund.
If you have trouble completing the steps mentioned above, you can call the TurboTax customer service number and ask for additional assistance. Professional experts will give you a step-by-step guide so that you can find the status of your federal or state tax refund without any difficulty.
