What you need to check the status of your refund:

-At least 5 weeks after mailing your paper return.

When the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund, you can see your actual personalized refund date. Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days after we receive your tax return, it’s possible your tax return may require additional review and take longer.

OptimumTax Agency fills and mails the tax refund documents to USA Tax Authorities in the shortest time possible. After that the refund period will depend on the U.S. Tax Authorities.

*In case that you did not provide the information about your total income in the USA, you did not provide the last pay stub of all employers, or IRS chooses your tax return for a review, refund of your taxes will be delayed.
