Where's My Tax Refund?
The best way to check the status of your refund is through the “Refund Tracker” under the “Resources” tab on our website, www.smileycpa.com. You will be able to see your refund in one of three stages: Return Received, Refund Approved, or Refund Sent. To check the status of your refund you will need your Social Security number, filing status, and exact refund amount. Keep in mind that those who claim the EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit) or ACTC (Additional Child Tax Credit) this year will see their refund delayed until at least February 15th. We electronically file your tax return, which provides the fastest and most secure filing experience. Our accountants also recommend the use of direct deposit to ensure you get your refund as quickly as possible. If you need assistance filing your 2016 tax return, one of our knowledgeable tax professionals would be happy to help you.
