Check the Status of your Refund

With IRS2go you can quickly check the status of a refund right from your mobile device. You will need your SSN or ITIN, your filing status and the exact amount of your refund.
Refund status is typically available either 24 hours after e-filing your return or 4 weeks after you mailed your return. The IRS updates daily, usually overnight.

Making a payment to the IRS is simple with the IRS2go app. Using the app, you can make a payment to the IRS by credit card, debit or Direct Pay. You can also pay when you e-file or schedule a payment with Direct Pay.
