Track The Status Of Your Income Tax Refund

James L. Seward

If your state or federal income tax returns indicate that you are going to be receiving a tax refund this year, you can check the status of your refund over the internet using a service offered by New York State and the federal government. The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) both allow individuals to track the status of their tax refunds online through their respective websites. The IRS also allows individuals who are entitled to the federal government’s “stimulus payment” to track the status of their payment online.
