For e-filed returns, we issue most refunds within 30 days. If you filed a paper return, it will take four or more weeks longer than an e-filed return.
We update our Income Tax Refund Status tool every day. This tool provides the most up-to-date information about your refund. There's no need to call us unless the message provided tells you to do so.

The Income Tax Refund Status online tool will give you personalized information about your tax return.
Once we approve your refund, we'll provide you with the date it will be issued.
If your tax return requires additional review, the tool will give you a general estimate of how long that review will take.
