If you filed your tax refund electronically through a popular tax prep company, you can leave the tracking to the pros! TurboTax and H&R Block are two examples of tax prep companies that specialize in the hard stuff and offer a tax return tracker.
To use the TurboTax track refund tool, you must have filed your return electronically with the company. This is often referred to as “e-filing.” You can use the tool between 24 and 48 hours after you file your return.
Simply log into your TurboTax account to view your information. Then, just like you would do to track federal tax return or state return statuses, you’ll need to enter the exact amount of your refund. The company can even help you locate your state’s tax refund instructions!
The H&R Block refund tracker works much the same. You’ll need to enter the following information to use the tool:
- Last name
- Date of birth
- Social Security Number (SSN)
- Filing status
Once you’re finished, you’ll receive an update about the most current status of your federal and state refund.
