What To Do When Your Tax Refund Is Delayed

15060065933_a9aa355903_zTis’ the season. Tax season that is.

The April 15 income tax filing deadline is just around the corner, but many taxpayers decided not to wait until the last minute to file. Those who opted against procrastination and are entitled to a refund may have already received it. But for those anxiously awaiting a check in the mail or a sum deposited directly into their bank account, the wait can be fraught with worry.

According to the IRS, refund information is available as soon as 24 hours after an e-filed return is received.

If you haven’t received your tax refund yet, don’t panic. First you should check out the status of your return using the IRS’s Where’s My Refund? tool.
