Where's My Refund?

Our clients can now find out the status of their refunds online or by phone. The IRS typically issues refunds in less than 21 days with direct deposit (longer waiting time if issued by check). The state refund can take up to 30 days or longer. For your convenience, we have listed several ways in which you can check the status of your refund:

Last name A-K

In order to verify your identity, please have your 1) social security number, 2) date of birth, and 3) zip code information ready.

Phone Inquiry: 1-888-875-VERA

Last name L-Z

In order to verify your identity, please have your 1) social security number, and 2) the $ amount* in line 73 of Form 1040.

Alternatively, you can go to the IRS website to view the status of your refund. However, we advise our clients to use either of the two banking sites listed above as there will be less chances of site downtimes.

Other States' Refunds

Most states have an automated phone line or website to see the status of the state refund. Rather than list all of them here, please look up your state's taxation website on a search engine such as Google. Thank you.


* please note that the $ refund amount needed will be the full amount before the tax preparation fees were deducted. Please refer to your tax return and find the line that states REFUND in either the federal or state tax form.
