With the April 15 personal income tax deadline behind us and many Pennsylvania taxpayers awaiting refunds, the Revenue Department today reminded taxpayers of the “Where’s My Refund?” tool available on the department’s website.

The “Where’s My Refund?” tool allows taxpayers to check the status of their refund online.

To check the status of a refund online, a taxpayer should have the primary Social Security number listed on the return and exact refund amount available, then visit and select “Where’s My Refund?” under the online services tab.

Information on electronically filed returns is available within a day or so of a successful e-file submission. Taxpayers who file paper returns should allow six to eight weeks from the date the return was mailed before checking the status of refunds.
