Are You Expecting an Income Tax Refund?
Now that the tax deadline has passed:
If you're awaiting a refund from the IRS, you can check the status of your refund online.
Your refund status should be available 24 hours after your electronically filed tax return has been received, and 4 weeks after you've mailed a paper return.
