As a reminder, here are some ways to check on the status of your tax refund:


  • Call 800-829-1040
  • Visit the Where’s My Refund page – usually has information about e-filed returns within 72 hours of being accepted, and information about paper returns within three to four weeks

H&R Block

  • Call 800-HRBLOCK
  • Log on to your H&R Block account – make sure your return was accepted by the IRS
  • Use the free H&R Block Mobile app – you don’t even have to be a client to use this method
