How Soon Can I Check On My Income Tax Return Status After I File?
When you electronically file your income tax return you can view the status of the return in as little as five days. Most of the time, when you use the “Where’s My Refund?” link on the Internal Revenue site, you can view the status of your income tax return in as little as two days. The availability of your status report will depend on when you filed your taxes. If you filed on a Monday in the beginning of the tax season, your refund status will show quickly. If you submitted your income tax return information on a Saturday evening in the middle of tax season, it will take a few days for that information to appear.

To receive this information you will be required to enter the main filing social security number, the filing status (single, joint etc.) and the dollar amount anticipated. Once you have provided this information you will receive notification instantly of the status of your tex refund.

Most government agents will not provide staus information on your income tax return unless there is a problem. If there is a problem, you will be notified and required to go to a local government office for further instruction. Many times it is a simple miss-key of information and can be handled in a few minutes.
