To check the progress of your current year refund call 1-800-829-4477 and use the refund status option offered on the TeleTax system. Please allow 6 weeks after you mail your return before calling this automated system. When you call you will need to provide the first social security number shown on the return, your filing status, and the amount of the refund.
There are several reasons for delayed refunds. Some of the situations that may result in an additional 8-week delay in receiving your refund include:
► An address change after filing the return
► A name listed on the tax return that does not match the name on the Social Security Records
► Failure to either sign the return or include necessary attachments such as W-2's or schedules
► Detected math errors
