How to Find Out When a Personal Tax Refund is Coming from the IRS. In order to request refund information through the Where’s My Refund tool, here are some tips to help taxpayers with their refund questions:
Have the right tax information ready before using any of the IRS refund tools. This includes Social Security number, filing status and refund amount.
You don’t need to check “Where’s My Refund?” more than once a day as your information will not change.
To avoid system delays, the best time to check on refunds is evening and weekends.
There is no need to call the IRS about your refund; the telephone service has the same information that is available on “Where’s My Refund?”.
The “Where’s My Refund?” Tool can be found on the irs.gov site by following this link.
