  • Q:

    How do you find your IRS return status?

    A:

    Find out the status of a tax return by using the IRS's Where's My Refund tool. This tool cannot be used until 72 hours, or three days, after the IRS acknowledges an e-filed return and three to four weeks after a paper return is mailed. Until then, the system sends out a message to try again later. The tool is only updated once every 24 hours, so checking several times a day is not necessary.
