If your return has been accepted and you are expecting a refund, you should be able to check the status of your refund with the IRS or with your state agency. Below are direct links to the IRS and state websites where you can securely check the status of your refund online. Before accessing either (online or by phone), be sure that you have the following information available, as it may be required to properly access the status of your refund:
Primary Social Security number as listed on the return
- Date your return was accepted
- Filing status listed on your accepted return (single, married filing joint, married filing separate, head of household, etc.)
- Amount of the expected refund as it was reported on the accepted return.
**Please note: AmData does not at any point handle money involved in refunds. Checks and direct deposits are sent from the IRS or state agency directly to the taxpayer. At no point does AmData receive refunds or participate in the refund process.
