New Refund Status Check Put Through Trial Run: The Internal Revenue Service is testing a new Internet-based service that will allow taxpayers to check the status of their refunds at anytime from anywhere. The Web application is expected to be fully operational for the 2003 filing season.

The agency moved the pilot project to the front page of www.irs.gov in order to test its ability to handle a large volume of users. Taxpayers who filed Form 1040, Form 1040-A or Form 1040-EZ and are due a refund may use the application. The program will mark the first time that taxpayers have been able to access their accounts directly through the Internet.
