Some good advice from Kay Bell, the yellow rose of taxes, in “Don't fall for these 6 tax refund myths” at DON’T MESS WITH TAXES -
“Myth 1: Calling my tax professional or the Internal Revenue Service will get me my refund sooner.
There are lots of good reasons to use a tax professional rather than doing your taxes yourself. It is a myth, however, that bugging your tax preparer, or the IRS itself, will get your refund to you more quickly.
In fact, being a pest could backfire.
Your tax preparer has done his/her best job for you. If you continue to bother him/her after your return is in the IRS' hands, you're likely to get on the tax pro's troublesome client list. That doesn't mean the tax preparer will provide less than professional service. But it does mean your tax pro isn't likely to go beyond that to help. If you're a persistent post-filing pest, you might even find yourself being fired.
can't do anything for taxpayers who are simply waiting for refunds either. Once
your Form 1040 is in the agency's system, it's just got to work its way
The IRS says the best way to check the status of a refund is to use its online Where’s My Refund? tracking tool. If you're away from your laptop or PC, then use your digital device to check on your refund via the IRS2Go mobile app.
But don't go crazy with the checking. The IRS updates the status of refunds once a day, usually overnight. Checking either status option more than once a day will not produce new information.
And no, trying to connect with a real person at the IRS won't get you any additional info. Plus, you'll be on hold for a while until a representative answers. So, leave the IRS phone help line staff alone. Call only if the refund status tool or app instructs you to do so.”
To repeat what I have said here before - THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING YOUR TAX PREPARER CAN DO TO EXPEDITE THE RECEIPT OF A REFUND.
