How do I find out if some one cashed my refund check?

Tax_questionQ) How do I find out if some one cashed my refund check?

A) If you need to know whether your federal tax refund check has been cashed, you can initiate a trace on your refund by using one of the following methods:

  • You can use the “Where’s My Refund?” system available through the IRS website.
  • You can call the IRS Refund Hotline toll-free number at 800-829-1954 and either use the automated system or speak with an agent.
  • If you filed a married filing jointly return, you cannot initiate a trace using the automated system.  The IRS will issue you a Form 3911 (PDF), Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund, to get the process started.

If you are trying to obtain a photocopy of your refund check because of a dispute over the proceeds, call the IRS toll-free number at 800-829-1954 to request assistance.

By law, the IRS is not allowed to disclose any information to you about someone else’s refund. For example, the IRS cannot discuss with you a check that was issued to another taxpayer.

  1. According to the IRS – Employees who do not have taxes withheld nor remit them personally, are still liable for these taxes and may not qualify for Social Security, Medicare, or unemployment benefits.

    Employees who are concerned that their employer is improperly withholding or failing to withhold federal income and employment taxes should report their employer by contacting the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. In cases where the employer withheld employment taxes but failed to deposit them, or failed to issue W-2s, the employee should contact the employer to request the W-2. If the employee is unable to secure a W-2 from the employer, the employee should complete and attach Form 4852, Substitute for W-2, to their tax return using the best information available to calculate the wages and the withholding. This information can often be secured from pay stubs.
