Where's My Refund?
The IRS has an on-line link that allows you to check the status of your refund. This year we were able to get our return completed in time to qualify for the second disbursement date which was supposed to be February 2nd. We checked the tool and it notified us that the funds would be disbursed on the 3rd. Therefore the IRS schedule may vary some in actuality from what is listed on their site. We also designated funds to go into separate accounts so this could have impacted the results.
Here is the link>> https://sa1.www4.irs.gov/irfof/lang/en/irfofgetstatus.jsp
You will need your social security number and the exact amount of the refund to use the tool. Make sure to log out when you are finished if you are on a public computer. You may also want to delete the history if it is not done automatically.
Refund Status Results
You requested the direct deposit of your refund into more than one bank account.
Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited to those accounts on February 3, 2012. If your deposits are not credited to your accounts by February 8, 2012, check with your bank to find out if they have been received. Please wait until February 8, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.
Please read the following information related to your tax situation:
Tax Topic 203, Refund Offsets for unpaid child support and certain federal, state, and unemployment compensation debts
Your refund may be reduced to pay a past due obligation such as child support, another federal agency debt, or state income tax. If this applies to you, the Financial Management Service, who issues IRS refunds, will send you a notice informing you of any offset they have made. The details of the debt are not provided to the IRS. Please do not call us to inquire about the details because we will not be able to answer your questions. Instead, direct any questions you have about the offset or debt to the agency identified on the notice.
