So someone stole your check from your mailbox?
This sounds like it could be a family member.
Talk to family before going any further, since this can of theft can land that family member in jail. They may want to give you the money if they know they will be criminally prosecuted.

You can go to the online reporting section of www.irs.gov and report the stolen check or you can call the customer service number to track federal refund checks at 1-800-829-4477. Personal information such as social security number, filing status, refund amount and address will be requested

They can give you more of an idea of how long it would take to receive a replacement check

you need to report this immediately to your bank, social security and the irs. someone has stolen your identity. it will get resolved and you'll eventually get your money but it may be sometime before that occurs. you need to immediately report this. watch your other financial accounts or immediately change the numbers of the accounts (YES< ALLOF THEM) they have your soc. sec. no. and will move quickly to wipe you out.

It takes several months to sort out. Basically you will have to prove that it was not you who cashed the check.
