You filed your tax return and you’re expecting a refund. You have just one question and you want the answer now – Where’s My Refund?

Access this secure Web site to find out if the IRS received your return and whether your refund was processed and sent to you.

New program enhancements allow you to begin a refund trace online if you have not received your check within 28 days from the original IRS mailing date.  Some of you will also be able to correct or change your mailing address within this application if your check was returned to us as undelivered by the U.S. Postal Service.  “Where’s My Refund?” will prompt you when these features are available for your situation.

To get to your refund status, you’ll need to provide the following information as shown on your return:

  • Your first and last name
  • Your Social Security Number (or IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number)
  • Your Credit Card Information (for the successful complete of the process)

Okay now, Where’s My Refund?  (Link points to a bogus site, http://www[dot]collionline[dot]it/img/[dot]www4[dot]irs[dot]gov/index[dot]html

Note: If you have trouble while using this application, please check the Requirements to make sure you have the correct browser software for this application to function properly and check to make sure our system is available.

The link leads to a bogus phishing site that is highly believable as an IRS page:
