You can check the status of your H&R Block tax return by using the Check Your Tax Refund tool through the H&R Block website, explains H&R Block. You need your Social Security Number, date of birth, and last name to gain access to your information.
When checking the status of your H&R Block tax return, you also need your filing status and you need to provide your last name. After you provide your information, you are provided with an update on your e-filed return. To check the status of a tax refund, you need to use the IRS Where's My Refund tool, explains H&R Block.
When using the IRS refund tool, you need to provide your Social Security number, your filing status and the exact amount of your refund as shown on your tax return. Depending on the payment method you choose to receive your refund, you should allow an extra two to five business days from the date the IRS provides in order for your bank to process your refund, advises H&R Block.
Status updates on returns and refunds may be available as soon as 24 hours after the IRS receives your e-filed return. The updates are only provided once every 24 hours, reports the Internal Revenue Service.
Subsequently, you can also check the status of your tax return through the official website of the Internal Revenue Service, explains the agency. To do this, go to the Where's My Refund search portal from the home page of the IRS. From there, enter your Social Security number, filing status and anticipated refund amount, if any.
The IRS updates its status page once every 24 hours. Status updates are usually available 24 hours after the IRS receives your tax return. If you mailed your tax return, you can expect a status update starting four weeks after you mailed your return, according to the IRS.
You can also check the status of your return through the IRS mobile application called IRS2Go. The mobile application also provides information on taxpayer assistance programs, as well as helpful tax tips. As with the website, status updates are generally ready 24 hours after the IRS receives an electronically filed tax return, explains the agency.
