Where's my return from last year?

A tax "return" is the Form 1040 that you prepare and file with the IRS or state.  Your tax "refund" is the money you get back if you paid more tax than you owed to the IRS or state.  What are you asking about?   Do you need a copy of a tax return that you prepared?   Or are you asking about the refund you expected?   By "last year"---which tax year do you mean?   Do you mean tax year 2020?  Or tax year 2021?   There have been lots of delays for refunds for both of those tax years.   If you are asking about your refund, you can check on the IRS refund site for federal refunds.


The IRS refund site recently changed and is now showing information for 2020 returns as well as information for 2021 returns so you can check the IRS site.


You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 35a of your 2020 or 2021 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:
