Tax Services: Track your refund
When will you receive your refund? The answer depends on how you filed your return. The IRS should issue your refund check within six to eight weeks of filing a paper return. If you choose to receive your refund through direct deposit, you should receive it within a week. If you use e-file, your refund should be issued within three weeks.
To check your federal tax refund status, you need your social security number, your filing status and the refund amount as shown on your tax return.
