Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
Pursuant to the IRS (https://www.irs.gov/Help-%26-Resources/Tools-%26-FAQs/FAQs-for-Individuals/Frequently-Asked-Tax-Questions-%26-Answers/IRS-Procedures/Refund-Inquiries/Refund-Inquiries-1), when you lose your refund check:
"You can call us at(###) ###-####(toll-free) and either use the automated system or speak with an agent.
Once your claim for a missing refund is processed, if the check was not cashed, you will receive a replacement after the original check is cancelled. If the refund check was cashed, the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (BFS) will provide you with a claim package that includes a copy of the cashed check. BFS will review your claim and the signature on the cancelled check before determining whether they can issue you a replacement check. The BFS review can take up to six weeks to complete."
