IRS YouTube Tax Topic Videos

IRS YouTube channels have helpful videos on a variety of tax topics

Taxpayers can subscribe to three different IRS YouTube channels to get tax information in a short and easy to understand format and see community updates from the agency.

Here are just a few of the helpful videos:

  • View account information – This video shows people how to set up an online account to view their tax information on IRS.gov.
  • Recovery rebate credit – This video explains why eligible people should claim the recovery rebate credit if they didn’t get any or the full amounts of the first two Economic Impact Payments.
  • Interactive tax assistant – This video introduces people to the Interactive Tax Assistant, an online tool that provides answers to several tax law questions specific to an individual’s circumstances. Based on their input, the tool can determine if a person has to file a tax return, their filing status, if they can claim a dependent, if the type of income they have is taxable, if they’re eligible to claim a credit or if they can deduct expenses.

The channels also offer playlists on specific tax topics, including ones for tax professionals and small business taxpayers.

Check Your Tax Refund Status

Here’s how taxpayers can track the status of their refund

Tracking the status of a tax refund is easy with the Where’s My Refund? tool. It’s conveniently accessible at IRS.gov or through the IRS2Go App.

Taxpayers can start checking their refund status within 24 hours after an e-filed return is received.

Refund timing
Where’s My Refund provides a personalized date after the return is processed and a refund is approved. While most tax refunds are issued within 21 days, some may take longer if the return requires additional review.

Here are some reasons a tax refund may take longer:

  • The return may include errors or be incomplete.
  • The return could be affected by identity theft or fraud.
  • Many banks do not process payments on weekends or holidays.

Claiming the recovery rebate credit on a 2020 tax return will not delay processing of a tax return. However, it is important that taxpayers claim the correct amount. If a correction is needed, there may be a slight delay in processing the return. If corrections are made, the IRS will send the taxpayer notice explaining any changes. The recovery rebate credit will be included in the tax refund.

The IRS will contact taxpayers by mail if more information is needed to process their tax return.

Fast and easy refund updates
Taxpayers can start checking on the status of their return within 24 hours after the IRS acknowledges receipt of an electronically filed return or four weeks after the taxpayer mails a paper return. The tool’s tracker displays progress in three phases:

  1. Return received
  2. Refund approved
  3. Refund sent

To use Where’s My Refund, taxpayers must enter their Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, their filing status and the exact whole dollar amount of their refund. The IRS updates the tool once a day, usually overnight, so there’s no need to check more often.

Calling the IRS won’t speed up a tax refund. The information available on Where’s My Refund? is the same information available to IRS phone assistors.
