Tax refund status: Here's how you know where your refunds are
After submitting your 2021 tax return on the official IRS website, you will have to wait 24 hours to be able to track your refund. Once your tax return has been filed, you will not only be able to track said refund status, but you will also be able to request the money from the stimulus check that you need. This as long as you have carried out your process correctly.
Once you can correctly track your refund, you can see that several legends will be included, such as ‘Received’, which means that your return is being processed. The second legend that can be observed is ‘Approved’, which as its name says, your refund has been approved and is on its way to be deposited in your bank account or in your mailbox in the form of a check.
How can I track my tax refund?
You can check directly in the IRS website under refunds, and remember that you must have your Social Security number, your marital status for purposes of the declaration and the exact amount that will be reimbursed to you, specified after submitting your tax return.
Once you have entered the platform correctly, you must enter the exact date of the tax return along with the way you filed it, electronically or in paper. The status of all refunds for US citizens is updated every 24 hours, so if at the moment the status of this is cataloged as ‘Received’ you will have to wait 24 more hours to consult it again to wait for it to have been approved .
When will I receive my refund?
According to the IRS, refunds are delivered within a period of no more than 21 days, in which your money can be deposited into a bank account or placed in e l mailbox of your house in the form of a check. However, it has been reported that some taxpayers have received this refund in fewer days than estimated.
