Tax Return and Tax Refund Status

The IRS Where's My Refund tool provides the tax refund status for the last 3 tax years.

Once you have e-filed your return on, your tax return status will change to Accepted by the IRS.  If your return got Rejected by the IRS - not - it's most due to a technical issue e.g. previous AGI amount miss-match etc. Most of the rejections can easily be corrected and then re-efiled for acceptance. Rejections are not the result of for example un-reported taxable income, incorrectly claimed dependents etc. If you ever wondered why the IRS is delaying your tax return view this tax return road map for a better understanding which steps a tax return might go through.
