When you mail your tax return, wait about 4 weeks and then you can begin checking the IRS site:

https://www.irs.gov/refunds

To track your state refund:    

https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1899433

On the IRS site you are also offered the use of an app called IRS2Go

For the future, if you are going to mail a tax return, it is a good idea to mail it using a service that will track it or provide you with a reaccept showing the IRS got it.

You will want to go to IRS.gov to check status at the following link

https://www.irs.gov/refunds/wheres-my-refund-its-quick-easy-and-secure

Bear in mind that it can take up to 4 weeks for a return that has been mailed to show up on IRS refund status check.
