Are you one of the millions of taxpayers expecting a refund from the IRS this year? Do you already have a plan to spend, save or invest the money? Although many of us waited until the April 15th filing deadline to submit our tax return, the instant the post office stamps the envelope or a nanosecond after hitting Send for e-filers, human nature kicks in and we want to know; WHERE IS MY TAX REFUND?
The IRS gives tax payers the ability to get a refund status through their website. However, several factors may delay refund processing. For example, if you still have a balance due from a previous tax year or are in the process of going through a bankruptcy, your 2013 tax refund may be delayed. The IRS also conducts reviews so discovering and correcting the simplest of errors on your tax return can result in a refund delay.
