The IRS encourages everyone to use the Withholding Calculator to perform a quick “paycheck checkup.”  This is even more important this year because of recent changes to the tax law for 2018. The Calculator helps you identify your tax withholding to make sure you have the right amount of tax withheld from your paycheck at work.

Where’s My Refund? has the most up to date information available about your refund. The tool is updated no more than once a day so you don’t need to check more often. Our phone and walk-in representatives can research the status of your refund  if it's been 21 days or more since you filed electronically, more than 6 weeks since you mailed your paper return or if Where’s My Refund? directs you to contact us.

By answering questions and providing basic income information, you can use our EITC Assistant to find out if you are eligible for EITC; determine if your child or children meet the tests for a qualifying child; and estimate the amount of your credit. We have the EITC Assistant in English and Versión en Español. We also have versions for the current tax year and for prior years.
