Question:
Your Tax Refund Status lookup with the e-collect payment method, refund distribution
Article, Solution:
Money Transfer

Step 1: Verify if your eFile.com tax return was accepted by the IRS after you e-Filed your return. Sign in here now to your eFile.com account and check on the right side page.

Step 2: If your return was accepted by the IRS, click and check your tax refund status with the IRS

Step 3: Only after the IRS has released your tax refund, check your tax refund status with our partner bank e-collect/Meta Bank here: https://www.myepstax.com/

If your tax refund was released by the IRS over 4 -5 days ago, and you do not see an account or status with e-collect/Meta Bank here is what most likely happened.

Your e-Collect application was unfortunately not accepted by e-collect/Meta due to increased consumer identity protection measures implemented by banks while processing tax refunds. Even though this measure will increase security it also inadvertently affects taxpayers like yourself. We at eFile.com have been in contact with the processing bank to provide more timely detailed information on the status of why your application was not accepted. In this case, the bank is required to return your tax refund back to the IRS for either direct deposit to your bank or via a personal check in the mail. When this happens you will not be charged any tax preparation fees by eFile.com and all your services are free.

If you have more questions on this please contact the IRS about the status of your tax return refund.  You might experience long hold times but you can also call: 800-829-1954 or 800-829-1954.
