Refund Information After Filing 1040EZ

You can check on the status of your 2008 refund if it has been at least 6 weeks from the date you filed your return (3 weeks if you filed electronically). But if you filed Form 8379 with your return, allow 14 weeks (11 weeks if you filed electronically).

Be sure to have a copy of your 2008 tax return available because you will need to know the exact whole-dollar amount of your refund. You will also need to know your filing status. Then, do one of the following.
  • Go to and click on Where's My Refund.
  • Call 1-800-829-4477 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for automated refund information.
  • Call 1-800-829-1954 during the hours shown below under Calling the IRS.

Refunds are sent out weekly on Fridays. If you check the status of your refund and are not given the date it will be issued, please wait until the next week before checking back.

Do not send in a copy of your return unless asked to do so.

To get a refund, you generally must file your return within 3 years from the date the return was due (including extensions).
