Where's Your Tax Refund? This Tool Will Tell You

Tax Day is April 18th this year , so you have a few extra days to file. If you've already done your taxes, you're either more responsible than I am or you're getting money back. If it's the latter and you still haven't gotten your refund, the IRS has a tool to help you track it.

You can find the IRS " Where's My Refund" tool here . It should be available 24 hours after they've received your e-file return or four weeks after they've received your mailed return. The tool tracks the stages of your return: received, approved, and sent.

According to the IRS, 90% of refunds are processed in 21 days or less, but in some cases it can take longer. For more detail, head to their press release on the matter.
