Where’s My Refund?

Show me the money!

If your return has been accepted and you are expecting a refund, you should be able to check the status of your refund with the IRS or with your state agency. Below are direct links to the IRS and state websites where you can securely check the status of your refund online.

You can also check the status of your federal refund by phone by calling the IRS Refund Hotline at 1-800-829-1954 (toll free).

Before accessing either (online or by phone), be sure that you have the following information available, as it may be required to properly access the status of your refund:

  • Primary Social Security number as listed on the return
  • Filing status listed on your accepted return (single, married filing joint, married filing separate, head of household, etc.)
  • Amount of the expected refund as it was reported on the accepted return.

Please note: Advantage Tax does not receive any money involved in the refund process. Checks and direct deposits are sent from the IRS or state agency directly to the taxpayer.  If you have selected to have your fee withheld from your refund, this process is facilitated by River City Bank – at no time does Advantage Tax process any refund transaction.
