Check The Status Of Your Federal IRS Tax Refund

by The Happy Rock on April 15, 2008

I thought this was a useful little page provided by the IRS. With you Social Security Number, Tax filing status, and the refund amount you can find out the status of your 2008 Federal Government taxes.

I got this message:

We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless we find mistakes or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by April 29, 2008.

I will be surprised if the direct deposit takes that long, but I did file closer to the deadline when it is busier.

I used this last year – quite useful and it becomes addictive (I checked it every day) if you are waiting for a tax return. When the return is processed, you get a message saying something like – “Your tax refund of $XXXX has been processed”. Nice.

Unfortunately this year I had owed taxes, so won’t have the pleasure of receving the messages or the cash.

Top blog as well. Always nice to discover other PF bloggers out there.
