Refunds, Payments, and the IRS2Go App

As tax season rolls around, understanding how to navigate the process can significantly reduce stress and ensure you meet your obligations with ease. Whether you are eagerly anticipating a refund, need to make a payment, or want to stay updated on the go, the IRS provides comprehensive resources to assist you.

Where’s My Refund?

Curious about the status of your federal tax refund? The IRS has made it simple to keep track of your refund through Where’s My Refund?. This online platform allows you to check your refund status within 24 hours after the IRS has received your e-filed return or four weeks after mailing a paper return. You will need your Social Security number, filing status, and the exact refund amount you expect to receive. This tool is updated once every 24 hours, providing you with the most current status of your refund.

Making Payments to the IRS

If you owe taxes, the IRS offers multiple payment options to settle your tax bill conveniently. Visit the IRS PAYMENTS page to explore various payment methods, including Direct Pay, which allows you to pay directly from your bank account for free. Additionally, you can use credit or debit cards, apply for an online payment agreement if you need more time to pay, or even pay in cash at a retail partner. Understanding your payment options can help you plan accordingly and avoid any last-minute rushes.
