Where's my refund?

Check the status of your refund - no login required! 
All you’ll need is your SSN or ITIN, date of birth, and the income reported on Line 1z of your federal tax form 1040 or 1040-SR.

It can take up to 90 days to process your application and receive your credit. 
Do NOT re-apply after you submitted your initial application for the same tax year.
Duplicate applications will delay processing of your refund!
