Free App Empowers Americans to Monitor Their Federal Refund Anytime,
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 --  TaxACT(R), the
critically acclaimed leader of affordable tax solutions, has released
Tax Return Status, a mobile app for tracking the status of e-filed
returns and federal refunds. The free app is available for Android
and iOS, and can be used by all U.S. taxpayers, not just TaxACT
For the more than three out of four taxpayers who receive a federal
refund each year, Tax Return Status provides an easy, fast and free
way to monitor the status of their refund as it is processed by the
IRS. After entering a few pieces of simple information, the app
displays the current stage of the refund and the date when each of
the following steps was completed along the way: 
1) When the IRS has received the tax return by e-file or mail, 
When the refund has been approved, and 
 3) An estimated date of when
the IRS will release the refund to the tax filer's bank or financial
institution, or by check via mail.  
Taxpayers can begin checking their refund status approximately 24
hours after e-filed returns are received by the IRS and four weeks
after a paper return is mailed. Refund information is updated by the
IRS once every 24 hours, usually overnight. 
Tax Return Status includes additional information for TaxACT Online
