Check your refund status
You can check your refund status using our
refund status application or by calling our automated refund line at 803-898-5300. Both options are available 24/7, and provide the same information as our customer service representatives.
If you filed electronically and received a confirmation from your tax preparation software, we have received your return.
You can expect your refund to move through our review process within 6-8 weeks from the date you filed.
Status changes are posted nightly. Find out how long you can expect to be in each step of processing in the
Refund Processing Timeline.
If you filed by paper, it may take more time for your refund status to update.
To check your refund status, you need:
- Your Social Security Number or ITIN
- Your exact refund amount
Our phone lines are busy this time of year, and our representatives have the same information as our
refund status application.
You really only need to call if:
- Your refund status hasn’t changed in more than 6 weeks
- Your refund status tells you to contact the SCDOR
