It’s been two weeks since the tax filing deadline and you still haven’t gotten your refund. Not ideal.
There are a number of reasons refunds get delayed – more information is needed, your returns were not e-filed (paper-filed returns take longer to process than e-filed returns), the return is incomplete, mismatch of personal info, the list goes on and on.
Fear not; below are the links to check the status of your personal income tax refund(s) online.
You will need some information at hand in order to check the status of your refund. In most cases, you will need your Social Security Number, filing status, and exact refund amount.
