Generally, taxpayers should pay taxes owed before the deadline or request an extension to avoid penalties and interest. But some taxpayers may have extra time to file and pay any taxes due. These include some members of the military who served or are currently in a combat zone, support personnel in combat zones or a contingency operation in support of the Armed Forces and disaster victims. The only way to get a refund is to file a tax return. There will be no penalties for filing after the deadline. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) also reminds taxpayers that they encountered delays in processing paper tax returns due to limited staff. If the taxpayer submits a written tax return, we will process it in the order received. Do not file a second tax return or call the IRS. Taxpayers can use "Where’s My Refund?" to track refunds.

Many of you may be eager to know when you can have your refund. Even if you check “Where is my refund” every five minutes you won’t have anything new. The status of refunds is refreshed only once a day, generally overnight. According to IRS, 90 percent of the refunds are issued within 21 days. There aren't any secret tricks to checking on the status of a refund. The best way to check the status of a refund is online through the “Where’s my Refund?” tool at IRS.gov or via the IRS2Go phone app.
How to play
Users can enter their Social Security number, application status and expected refund amount, and the software will then communicate with the IRS server to retrieve their refund status. In an initial press release about the IRS2GO application, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reported that Social Security numbers are masked and encrypted for security purposes.
Taxpayers can also check the status of their federal refunds by visiting the "Get Refund Status" page on the IRS website. This page is fully encrypted using the "https" prefix on the URL.
The IRS does not indicate that a user's application status and refund amount will be blocked and encrypted, so the IRS2Go mobile app may not provide the same level of security as the IRS website. However, if you have reason to be concerned about protecting your information, the login security code can be obtained from the app. Obtaining the code on the app does not require it to be sent to you again. In addition to checking the status of your refund, you can also pay your taxes through the IRS2Go mobile app by paying directly from your bank account or by using a credit or debit card. Since 2016, individual taxpayers can use the secure IRS direct payment feature for free. The IRS issues daily tax alerts throughout the filing season. Smartphone users can subscribe to these alerts, which will be emailed to the address associated with the phone.
Additional help is available on the app's "Free Tax Help" page, from information about the IRS Free File Alliance to locations for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) services.
