As of 2015, you can check the status of your Internal Revenue Service Rebate at IRS.gov or by downloading the free IRS2GO mobile app through iTunes, Amazon or Google Play. To access the Where's My Refund tool online, click on the Refunds tab on the IRS home page.
To check the status of a refund, enter your Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification number, filing status and the exact amount of the expected refund. You can check the status of an e-filed return after 24 hours and the status of a mailed return after four weeks. The IRS updates the Where's My Refund feature once every 24 hours.
