According to the IRS, if you send in a paper return that is complete and accurate you should receive your refund check in six to eight weeks. If you file electronically you should have your refund in three to four weeks, and if you request direct deposit your refund could be in your bank account quicker. Since you have been waiting longer than that amount of time and still haven't received your refund, you can follow up with the IRS to find out the status of your refund. The IRS has an online tool - "Where's My Refund?" on the home page of its website at Internal Revenue Service
. By entering your SSN#, your filing status, and the exact whole dollar amount of your refund, you can find out the status. You will receive an immediate response indicating when your refund was deposited or the check sent. You can also call the IRS Refund Hotline at 800-829-1954, Telephone Assistance for Individuals:
Toll-Free, 1-800-829-1040, or the IRS TeleTax System at 800-829-4477. The IRS advises that you wait at least 72 hours before checking on the status of your refund if you filed electronically, and four weeks if you mailed in your return. Your refund may be delayed if the IRS finds some discrepancy on your return. For example there may be a Social Security number on the return that does not match IRS records, you may have forgotten to sign the return, or attach a W-2. There could be math errors or inconsistencies on the return. These types of discrepancies or errors can cause an additional eight-week delay in receiving your refund. You may receive a notice from the IRS, advising you of corrections they made, or requesting additional information from you.i guess you need to contact the IRS ASAP; only the IRS knows what is going on.
