With the IRS not releasing their updated tax forms or accepting returns until after January 30th this year, folks are having to wait even longer for their long-anticipated refunds. Once these returns start flowing in the coming weeks, the next question is often: Where’s My Refund? Taxpayers can access this information at IRS.gov. The information required in order to check your refund status is: Your social security number, filing status and the exact dollar amount of the refund you are expecting. Have a copy of your tax return in front of you, and the process is quick and easy.
