The Iowa Department of Revenue is serious about keeping your identity and refund safe this year. Because of this effort, the review of Iowa income tax returns will take longer and your tax refund will come slower than in the past.
You can track the progress of your Iowa income tax return by visiting this Iowa Department of Revenue website: https://apps.idr.iowa.gov/wheresmyrefund/GetRefundStatus. You will need your Social Security number and the exact amount of Iowa tax refund expected. A recent check of a tax return that was filed in early March indicated a wait of eight weeks for the refund.
You can also check on your Federal tax refund by going to: https://www.irs.gov/refunds. You will need to know your filing status, as well as the exact amount of the expected Federal refund to use this site.
