IRS Enhances “Where’s My Refund” Tool

The IRS has added a new feature to the “Where’s My Refund?” tool, available online (link below) and in the IRS2Go mobile app. Previously, you could only use the tool to check your refund status for the most recently filed return, and only if that return covered one of the last two tax years. However, as of May 25, 2022, the tool can now provide information on refunds from any of the last three tax years (2019, 2020 and 2021).

To use the tool, you will need your filing status, taxpayer ID number (SSN or ITIN) and expected refund amount for that tax year. The ability to check multiple years will be a great help to the many taxpayers still waiting for their 2019 or 2020 returns to be processed. If you have not yet filed a tax return for 2021, then the sooner your file, the sooner you can receive your refund.
