2017 IRS Tax Refund Processing Schedule and Direct Deposit Cycle Chart for 2016 Return Filings

8,046 comments

2017 IRS refund-scheduleBelow is the latest table showing estimated 20162017 tax season refund payment dates based on past refund cycles and IRS guidelines. It shows the date your refund will be processed and paid based on the week your return is accepted by the IRS. For refund dates specific to your tax filing go to the Where is my Refund (WMR) page or IRS2Go mobile application. You will need information from your tax return to get your specific refund processing and payment dates. Note that Jan 23rd is when the IRS E-file system will start processing electronic and paper tax returns. Even if you submitted before this date, don’t expect refund processing and payments to take place beforehand.


EITC and ACTC Related Tax Refund Delays (PATH) Update: As in previous tax seasons a number of tax payers will see refund processing delays. The IRS had already announced that it will have to hold/delay refund payments for people claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) due to additional anti-fraud safeguards/reviews under newly enacted laws (PATH Act). But the IRS is now processing refunds which were originally being held up due to PATH mandates. You should no longer be seeing the PATH message as a blocker to get your refund processed and paid. If held up for other reasons (see below) you will get the applicable message/follow-up action.

Here is more refund information from the bigger online tax providers – > TurboTax ; H&R Block ;  TaxAct

The federal IRS refund schedule table below is only for electronically filed returns (e-file) done thorough online tax software providers and assumes your tax return was in order. I.e accepted by the IRS via the WMR tool and status is equal to “Return Received”. Paper filed returns can take considerably longer and would add 1 to 2 weeks to the time frames below. Again, use the the tax refund chart below as a guideline and refer to the IRS WMR tool for specific timeframes related to your return.  Also note that it could take much longer to get your refund if the IRS deems your tax return submission needs further reviews or your identity needs to be verified. This would add two to nine weeks to the date range of your refund delivery date. Get your credit and finances on track with Lex OnTrack

For those impacted by tax refund delays (and it will be a lot this year) make sure you also scroll through some of the ~7000 comments below this article from current and prior years for further ideas/support, including some useful tips and tricks to find out your refund status if you are not getting much insight from the IRS WMR tool. So hang in there if you are dealing with extended delays for getting for your federal tax refund. You are not alone.

For those experiencing ongoing issues or delays with their refunds check out this article on “Why is it taking so long to get my refund.” The IRS has said that  phone and walk-in representatives can research the status of your refund only if it’s been 21 days or more since you filed electronically, more than 6 weeks since you mailed your paper return or if the IRS tool Where’s My Refund? directs you to contact them. The WMR tool will also provide an actual refund date as soon as the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund. If your refund is taking much longer than the above schedule, and assuming your return was accepted by the IRS, please leave a comment below for the benefit of other readers. I can try digging into the reasons if a few people are seeing delays.

Help! My WMR status bar has disappeared – Does this mean by return is still being processed and/or will my refund be delayed?

As many folks have commented, the WMR tracker status bar may disappear or not be shown if your return falls under IRS review after it is received (Status Bar 1: Return Received) because additional information is needed for your return. This can happen even if you previously checked WMR and it showed the status as “Return Received.”  An explanation or instructions will be provided depending on the situation (eg PATH message or see Tax Topic 152 as discussed below)

But don’t panic when this happens. The IRS still has your return but things are essentially on hold until the IRS gets the additional information from you to continue processing your return . You will either get directions on WMR or IRS2Go or the IRS will contact you by mail. Follow the provided instructions and return any additional information ASAP to get your potential refund and reduce any further delays. Talk to your accountant, tax advocate or tax professional if you are not clear on what the IRS is asking for or you don’t get an update after 21 days.

WMR Path, Tax Topic 152 and 151 message 

Two of the most common refund related messages showing up on the WMR tool after your tax return is submitted are the PATH message and to Refer to Tax Topic 152. The PATH message relates to the The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act (PATH Act of 2015) and is to notify you that the IRS is required to hold refunds claiming the EITC/ACTC until Feb. 15 as described above due to further identity verification.

When you see the “Refer to Tax Topic 152” message it means your refund is being processed and the IRS is directing you its generic refund page for more information. There is not much you can do but wait to see if the IRS finds any issues or requires further verification of your identity or items in your tax return. See the various reader comments below on timing and their experience after getting this and other WMR messages.


A Tax Topic 151 message simply means that you’re getting a tax offset which may result in your refund being less than you expected. The reason for this is that the federal government has “offset” or deducted monies from your tax refund to cover debts you owe other federal agencies. You will get an official IRS letter/report explaining the actual offset and adjustments to your tax return, and details on how to appeal this action – but likely it will delay you getting your refund. While not great news, the silver lining here is that the IRS has processed your return and your adjusted refund (where applicable) should be on its way.

If I can order my IRS tax transcript does it mean I am getting my refund soon?

This question comes up a lot and I have seen a few comments on this suggesting that that if you can order your transcript then your refund is on the way. But this is not a factual statement. Yes there is a correlation because to get a transcript the IRS generally has to have processed your tax return (and refund where applicable). But the IRS is very clear that being able to request a transcript does not mean you will imminently be getting a refund and is among the common myths and misconceptions repeated in social media. The IRS’ official line is that checking the WMR tool is the best and official way to check your refund status.

However I have read a number of comments here and on other tax sites saying that when the WMR site provides limited information on the refund, requesting a free IRS transcript seems to be another way of checking the status of the refund. Generally if you can request a transcript, it means the refund is on the way and the IRS has completed processing of your tax return. But this is all anecdotal evidence.

A note about IRS system issues and refund delays

It appears that the IRS is again having issues with processing returns in a timely manner and so a number of people are seeing delays in getting their refunds or updates in the status of their refund on the WMR tool/app. The IRS has said that all system issues have now been resolved but given the various legacy systems they have and volume of processing I would not be surprised to see system problems arise again this year, which mean delays in processing and paying refunds.

See here for average refund amounts in past tax seasons and refund processing times by state

2016-2017 Tax Season – Amended Tax Return Refund Schedule

While the IRS promises to have regular return refunds processed within 21 days for nine out of ten tax payers, it does take quite a bit longer to receive a refund if you amended your tax return. Generally you will have to wait 8 to 12 weeks more for the IRS to process amended returns since they prioritize regular returns. Also note that the standard”Where’s my refund” service from the IRS does not track amended tax return status’. You need to instead use the IRS tool, Where’s My Amended Return.” You can also access the tool via phone by calling 1-866-464-2050.  Only call the IRS to follow up on delayed amended return refunds after 12 weeks. The number to call is 1-800-829-1040.

I will continue to update this article and encourage you to check back regularly. If the information here was useful please consider sharing this page via Facebook, Twitter or your other social media channels.

I filed Jan waited til feb 15th received a letter saying I’m being reviewed and this would be done by April 13th I still show that my refund is received and being processed they said I need to take no further action but come on already this is hard enough without giving me my very small return….

That timeline is a joke.. My return has been in the accepted status since April 5th same day it was sent electronically. Here it is 19 days later and not a thing has changed.This is unacceptable. In processing for 19 days seriously??

RG April 24

That’s nothing. I filed February 3. Here it it’s April 24th. Nothing. They told me that I would have received it on the 13th of March. It’s a good damn joke. I unfortunately lost the number/extension to talk with a live person. Or I’d be calling them daily. I’m surprised no one is protesting. If we owed them money, we would be charged interest if we left them waiting.

Where’s my refund is no help because it just keeps saying the IRS has received and has processed my refund, can someone please tell me something????

E-Filed April 3. Can’t remember the date it was accepted…either the 4 or 5. Bars went away and says “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.” References Topic 152. I do have an offset, but I’m in Illinois and I still haven’t received my State refund!!!! I’ve had an offset in years past and even if I hadn’t of had it by now, I would at least have a status bar telling me about my refund date. I have nothing besides that message. Super irritated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I filed my taxed electronically the same way I do every year with direct deposit on February 22, 2017. Today is April 17, 2017 and still no update. The irs refund website says :

“We cannot provide any information about your refund. Be sure to
verify your filing date.”

Not sure what this means but I also sent a paper copy to IRS by mail 2 weeks ago. Lets go Feds pay up already. If the ball was on the other end, we would be fined and imprisoned.

Hello everyone! I am glad to see other people are having issues as well receiving their refund and not just me! I have filed by paper beginning of February and it doesn’t even come up in the system. I even mailed in my check for the small amount I owed to state. It’s really close to the dead line and I am getting worried I might get a letter. I don’t owe anything, but you never know with the government! I’ve tried calling 3 different phone numbers and they all say the same thing. I can’t talk to an actual person. Does anyone have any numbers where you can talk to a representative? Or should I re-mail my tax information in and send in a new check? I’ve made copies of my tax forms so I have proof I did my part and so I can re send them. Thanks for your help!

I e-filed using the IRS website on March 2nd. Here it is now April 7th and WMR still at “your taxes have been received and are being processed”. This has been stuck like this since since March 10th. There is no excuse. I have not received a single letter in the mail or a call asking for more information. I received my state tax within 10 days. However, my federal is still in limbo apparently. My husband and I have way too many expenses we need to get caught up on, so this is devistating.

I filed mine on Jan 11th and it was accepted on Jan 23rd. WMR has been showing “We have received your tax return and it is being processed” since around Feb 1. Here we are 11 1/2 weeks later and it’s STILL “being processed”. I called the IRS a few weeks ago and was told SOMEONE is working on it, but there is no timeframe or additional information available. My attorney then advised me NOT to call the IRS because they will delay your return even longer each time you call. Real nice….

Weeks later called again and they say they need to send the Verification letter but no one sent it and they will have to send another….

Good Morning, I have the same problem with receiving my State refund which I filed online (Tax Act) I was approved for both the day after I filed.(Feb 19th) Got the same runaround you got with the IRS and WMR. My bills are piling up and I just bought a new car almost 4 months ago and I made a loan through the bank of my insurance company. My bills are piling up as well. This could potentially mess up my credit(which is in excellent standing-for now) and get my car repossessed. I am so angry right now.

I’m in the same boat as all of y’all! I e filed Feb 9th and here it is March 28th and still no federal return, so aggravating but what can I Do? I have not received a letter from the IRS and my status bar says “your tax return has been received and is being processed” nearly 2 months after I filed?!?! This is crazy, I guess my next step will be to go to local IRS office and try to find out because my patience has just about run out.

I filed my return electronically on February 22, I had to mail in forms for the Healthcare market place in which I did that same day. However I am still waiting on my return 5 weeks later and the WAR continues saying processing. This is ridiculous, I have complied with what the IRS wanted and still nothing.

I am in the same boat. Filed Jan 30 and got a letter the next week to send in healthcare info. I sent it in on Feb 15 still no money as of March 29..I called they said we have info but still processing it. No date or nothing..ugggh just gotta wait.

I filed on the first of Feb, I was hold then they sent me a letter March 3rd to call them to confirm who i am and they sent my date through. I was to get it on the 15th- 20th. It is now 27th!!! What the hell?!?!?!?!

I filed my return on 2/23/17, lost my bar on 3/11/17, I began to worry and called IRS, Agent advised that they needed my 8962 and 1095 form and that it’s OK for me send the forms before I received the letter from the IRS. I faxed the forms on 3/14/17, received the IRS letter the next day. On 3/22/17, I lost my refund amount on WMR but Topic 152 is shown. I called IRS and they could not confirm with me if they have received my fax. IRS Agent advised to fax it in again, this time with the letter sent from the IRS. Refaxed on 3/24/17.

Has anyone been in this situation? I just really want to know if they’ve received my fax and if my refund is coming anytime soon.

Happened to me. Took them about 6 weeks after I sent the form to get back to me. They sent me a letter saying my refund amount was adjusted (based on the healthcare advanced tax credit) . Only adjusted it by 30 bucks. It also says on the letter my return will be here in 4-6 weeks. I e filed so Im hoping it comes sooner. Be patient

MY UPDATE……

Filed the 12th of January, received the 25th of January, and after 2 VERY LONG months of waiting and having the WMR site say still processing………still processing, over and over again, FINALLY got the bar back, i have been approved and should get it by Wednesday ……………. So if your still waiting like i was and thought ok im NEVER gonna get it or thought that there MUST be a problem, trust me YOU WILL GET IT!!! Its ridiculous that it has taken this long for waaaaay to many of us but it will come……. I wish you all the best and wanna say THANK YOU because if it weren’t for this website and reading all your comments and concerns i would have felt alone in all this waiting.

I filed mine on march 8 and here it is the 24th 15 days later and still showing being processed. But a majority of mine is the tax care credits but i thought that wait was over as of feb27 but i guess not. This is insane. I have been waiting months to get my car out of the shop because i didnt have 2 grand. I am just praying it will hurry up . I have never had this issue!!!

We filed 2/6 and just a week ago were FINALLY told what the hold up was. All of the letters and other times we’ve called they would never say anything was wrong or that they needed anything. We were furious. Finally they told us what the hold up was and we sent them the paperwork they needed. Now we’re just waiting on them to review that. Almost two months of them sitting on our return without them letting us know why… Be persistent when on the phone with them!!

I truly believe that if one filed the EZ form or 1040 but minimal deduction ( such as only tuition and or deduction for being, say, an educator), those refunds were processed and paid out. The more complicated and detailed the 1040 (e.g., lots of deductions, credits, mortgage and property expense deductions, tuition and educator credits, licensing tax deductions, spousal injury claim so one spouse doesn’t have to be responsible for other spouse’s tax debt), the far less likely you’ll see your refund anytime soon. I filed Feb 1, 2017. Accepted Feb 2. It’s now March 23, 2017. No refund. 9 weeks and going strong without a refund. Lol.

Reply

Troy Strickland March 23

I feel for everybody here. I put my paper return in the mail on 2/13 with delivery confirmation (I didn’t file earlier because I am claiming both the EIC and the ACTC). It was confirmed delivered by the post office on 2/15, and a week later the WMR tool showed received. It stayed that way for 2 1/2 weeks when the bars dropped off and the generic “still processing your return” showed up. Thankfully my amount expected never went away. I am a pastor and our ministry taxes are a nightmare to begin with (literally have to create our own forms because the IRS doesn’t have one for us) being an employee for income tax purposes and self employed for social security purposes. I say that because my taxes always take a little longer, but this year is ridiculous. I usually have a week wait between the time the bars fall off and the refund approved. We are beginning our third week since the bars fell off, and as per my phone call I have to wait 6 weeks rather than 21 days since I filed paper return (even though they received it). It’s frustrating for me because I can never file electronically so I will always have a longer wait. Like everyone else, I made purchases expecting my return within a month, and my wife had a car accident that caused more repair bills. Now I have payments to make while waiting on my return. I feel for all of you guys and I pray your wait comes to a quick end. My only advice is the advice I gave myself for next year. I am adjusting my withholding (for a pastor that means changing my estimated tax payments) to a level that makes my refund minimal (or nonexistent) if I take the earned income credit and child tax credits into account. That puts more money in my pocket now, and makes this process less stressful for me next year because I won’t be expecting this huge amount of money.

My 21 days is tom. My tax return was accepted the same day I exiled using turbo tax. My status bar was there for first couple days then disappeared.. mine doesn’t give me a Path message or tax topic or anything.. says “Your Tax Return is still being processed. A refund date will provided when available” and in my notes it read for the irs go app to check on statuses and that they are updated daily typically overnight…. I have not received any emails nor anything via mail or phone or with turbo tax. My identity and taxes were stolen couple yrs ago (last time i tried filing other than this yr) could that be why? Are they needing to confirm my identity? And if so, why haven’t I received any type of notice? Help?! I’ve never have had to wait this long for a return.. a week and half at the most! Thanks!

I filed my federal and state on Feb 6, 2017. Returns were accepted by the IRS the next day. I am still waiting for my refund on 3/17. I am sick and tired of checking the IRS Website daily only to see the same ” Your returns are being processed” verbiage. I have no dependents, so why am I still waiting for return. For the last 15 years I have filed the first week of February and always got my refund in 3 weeks. I guess this year is different?? Maybe this is a IRS SLOWDOWN while they gain interest on our refund money? Call the IRS and get a computer telling me what the refund website already says. Something smells fishy here?

Okay you poor guys!! I feel all of your pain. So i filed on 2/25 and was accepted literally that same day. I claimed my son for the Child Tax Credit and of course i recieved the EIC. Im totally stressed. I live with my terminally ill mother (whom i take care of) my 7 year old, my husband, and i am avout 6 months pregnant with my daughter. I need this money to get out of an enormous hole of debt caused by a car accident on January 26th that has left me a pile of bills. Im so stretched to the limit and so i am very very frustrated by now. As i said, i filed and it was accepted on 2/25.. my WMR tool has not budged at all!!! It just is stuck at “return received” and the very annoying sentence regarding the 21 days it usually takes for refunds but “may take longer under certain circumstances”… what a load. Then i get the “topic 152” and a bunch of the same information over and over. I have tried to get a hold of the IRS and finally spoke to someone who told me “it hasnt been 21 days and if you dont have anything by Monday (March 20th) please call us back”! I am so frustrated! I have never had a tax return take so long. I have college expenses on there like student loans and a pell grant but i dropped out of college when my mom became ill. So im confused. Is my college holding it up? Is my EIC holding it up?? My CTC?? Or is the IRS just doing this for no reason and making me dig deeper and deeper into debt. I would appreciate anyone who can give me answers and or advice. All i havd been told is “be patient” well anyone who is like me and stretched to the limit on their finances can understand thay patience flys out the window when you are desperate and everyone around you has been getting their returns! Just for extra info I filed 2/25 using Turbo Tax Free and i live in Nevada where we do not get state taxes.. and again my return was accepted maybe an hour after i filed on 2/25. I appreciate all of your help, and again good luck!

UPDATE
finally after a whole month I will be getting my refund soon. Have to wait until 9 weeks tho because I have to get a paper check due to a friend that I thought was a friend. Put random account numbers that wasn’t my bank account info on my taxes even tho my taxes papers clearly have my bank info. So that caused my taxes to be under review I field Feb 20 accepted same day. Just got a letter yesterday to call a number so they can process my taxes. So any mistakes guys can cause u to go under review. Lesson learned for me u can’t trust everyone. Good luck to all !!!!!

Ashlee,
what number did you call? Could you share it with me? The number I have found will not give me a real person, just a computer that tells me what I already know “return still being processed.” I too have a child and EIC but was accepted the end of January and even with the processing not starting until February 15, should have received my refund by now!

JASMINE HOLLAND March 17

When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: “Refund”, or it will send you to an automated phone line. So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for “personal income tax” instead. Then press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.

JASMINE HOLLAND March 17

Follow steps above to speak with someone. But FYI if it’s not pass your days they will not give u information.

Ashlee March 18

18008291040 okay so this is a process. You have to call and press 1 for english.. then press the option for PERSONAL TAX INFO not the one for tax status or anything like that. Then the option for tax history or payment and then the option for all other questions. It takes a lot of button presses to get there and finally you will verify your ssn and info and get a live person. Probably a rude one at that, which is what I got. Please note that all they will say is “sorry i cant do anything” if it hasnt been 21 days.. personal experience..

Wow, I thought that I was waiting too long for my refund until I came on here. Some of you have been waiting way too long. I filed both state and federal on 3/7 and for federal, the message changed to your return was accepted with one bar. 3/11 the bars disappeared and now it says your return is still being processed and a refund date will be provided when available with article 152. I feel so helpless, not knowing what is going on. My state website just says checking for errors and nothing is required from you at this point. If I don’t receive either my state or federal refund by Monday 3/20, then I will be calling someone. This is ridiculous. It’s my money and I need it to pay for bills. It’s a decent amount of money too. Why does the middle class get so screwed these days? Screw this country.

If u report all source of your incomes n personal information correctly, there nothing to worry. There only one reason your refund delay because the IRS didn’t have enough staffs.

When you receive a 4464c letter, does it really that the entire 60 days to get refund information, will I receive my refund within the 60 days of the letter which was 2/22 I file 2/13 and got accepted by IRS 2/13

I got accepted on 2/09/17 and was told the same thing was supposed to get that letter on 3/13/17 but I got a ddd date on 3/11/17 and it was deposited today which was my ddd so hang in there because I never had any war bars until 3/11/17 and was told to wait 60 days from which the letter date was received

Return was e-filed with TurboTax and accepted Feb 8th. Have not received an update as of March 14th. The IRS site still says “your tax return is still being processed, a refund date will be provided when available.” On March 10th, I called a number that actually connected me with a real person at the IRS and after a vigorous verification process ( tax returns have multiple addresses because I’ve lived many places) they still couldn’t tell me what was taking so long to complete my processing. No letter, no anything.

I’m dealing with the same issue filed February 1st. I was told my return was accepted by the IRS around February 18th or so. Now it’s saying “your return is being processed.” This is absolutely absurd to do to the American people.

Bryon March 15

I am same Filed on TurboTax 2/10 w/EiC and it always shows still processing. We called right before spring break I think on 3/10 and got pushed around on the phone finally they said their processing server was down when we filed and it is corrected and being processed now. Then gave the same response they always give which is wait 30 days to call again and it can take another 60 days………Needless to say it still says processing and no date given. We got no letter and they said nothing was wrong with the return even talked to fraud dept to make sure. Am I ever going to see this money?

Christy March 17

Hi Alfred, our submission dates are almost the same (2/4) and I haven’t received my refund either. We haven’t made any changes…same home, same jobs, same kids…but no sign of our refund yet. I guess I’ll call tomorrow since it’s way overdue. Good luck!

If you have not called them you might want to. I filed 1/23 bars disappeared 2/4 and changed to still being processed. Called 2/13 at 21 days and was told I needed to verify id in office she sent me out a letter while I was on hold. If I wouldn’t have called I would have never known that I was flagged for identity theft. I’ve seen many other people that haven’t gotten the identity letters until they call in.

I electronically filed the 27th of jan accepted the 29th. Nothing till letter came saying call to verifying identity. I called and answered specific private questions only i would know. they said it was great and they would process it. I called back when no change. I spoke to a woman that said the first woman didnt verify correctly and id recieve another letter. I called back again and they said the second lady was wrong and it was verified correctly and id get a letter after the 13th of march. I recieved it and it said i have to just do nothing and wait till april 27th now. It states after that ill get a check or another letter.
It seems to me they have their heads up their butts and are trying to just buy time because we dont have the man power or smarts working for the irs. So two letters and three people spoken to and all its saying is wait. It really dies suck that nothing can be done about it.

Filed my taxed on 2/3. Was unaware that my husband still had his health insurance after we had canceled it the year prior, but it was valid until mid year 2016 without our knowledge. The refund bar disappeared like 2/20 or so. Received letter on 2/24 asking for 1095 A form and 8962 form. Faxed it on 2/25 with the accounting firm that I had originally done my taxes with. Was told it would take 6-8 weeks for refund. As of 3/11 the topic152 link appeared and the amount that was originally stated there disappeared, wasn’t like that on 3/10. There is no bar just says it is still process. Does anyone know how long after that did they get their refund?

Filed my taxes through TurboTax mid Jan, had both state and Federal refunds back before end of Jan. Filed my sons the same way, had to file and amended federal return because he got a w2 for a short job we forgot he had and he got his direct deposit AND his paper federal correction amount check by mid-Feb. My fiance on the other hand….filed his taxes Feb 4 with TT, was rejected once because of a typo so I fixed if and it was accepted the next day. He got his state refund a week and a half later…..but here it is March 10th and all the WRM app keeps saying is that his return is “being processed”. No code, nothing. Hes getting frustrated and so am I.

I received that letter where I have verify who I am as well. So I called and verified who I was March 1 and I asked why do I have to verify who I am because I had to submit stuff for them to continue processing my amended return for 2015. The young lady told me that I was randomly selected and that everyone does not have to verify who they are. But we did the verification process and I was good to go and that I should receive my return soon. Well I still have not received it. So I called this morning and a nice gentleman by the name of Gary told me that my federal taxes was received and then placed on hold until I verified who I was. When I called and verified and passed verification, my refund began processing. So now I have to wait up to an additional 9 weeks before I receive my refund.

In all honesty, the IRS does not care about rent that needs to be paid or any other bills. The IRS does not care that you are homeless or anything else. It is sad that it has come to this because people are out their committing fraud on their taxes and the rest of us honest people have to suffer because of their actions. I served my country for 12 years before being medically discharged due to injury. I worked hard for my money and I pay my taxes. We honest should not have to go through this!

I filed my refund through turbotax and my refund was accepted by the IRS on 1/28/2017, I received a letter in the mail February 14th from the IRS asking for forms 1095-a and 8962. I mailed them out the next day. I called the IRS a few days ago to see what’s taking so long as it’s now March 9th and they could not even tell me if they received the forms or not. They did however tell me that the WMR tool will never change until the date I get my refund under this situation. They told me that there is nothing they can’t even research what is going on with my refund until 8 weeks has passed if I still have not gotten it. I feel like I’m in Limbo.

This happened to me last year, and turbo tax assured me that this year it would not be an issue and it will all be attached to the return filed electronically. which it seems this year i did not have this issue. But last year the irs suggested when I spoke to them on the phone that to fax it only with the letter. I suggest you call and get a tax advocate and have them check for you. Dont fax it now until you know from the advocate that it is not there.. My son’s is in the same wait like you. His 1095A was incorrect so we entered the info the correct way and called marketplace to send an amended one to the irs. They had it stated he had marketplace insurance longer than he did so we could not show the tax credit for those months or it would of came back as more refund in his case which they down the road would of caught. so now the consequence of doing it correctly is wait on still a letter which you did get but he has not yet! Hope your processes soon and refund is sent.

I called the IRS international number as I am currently in Mexico City. I’m actually stranded here and without any money. The IRS accepted my return on 1/17. My WMR has said “We have received your refund and it is being processed,” since 2/15. I did have the EIC so I’m aware refunds weren’t to be received till the week of 2/27. The representative said I should have received a 4464c letter in the mail last week. I have not. My housemates have been checking for me. He also said no action is needed an my return looks fine. I asked to be referred to a Tax Advocate for a 911 situation. He did so and was very thorough and helpful. I should be hearing from an advocate in the next few days. I’ll keep you all posted. Fingers crossed for everyone to get the money they need in the time they need.

You can call the IRS 1800 # ending in 1040 and talk to a rep and the will let you know if the. 8962 form corrected your return. And from the date it was corrected it will take up to 8 weeks for your return to finish getting processed. They say its usually not that long. I just had the same problem and sent the correct paperwork back to them on Feb 15th and it got corrected by the IRS march 8th which was yesterday. Im hoping its not a 8 week wait. If I don’t recieve my return my may 3rd. The IRS said to call back. We’ll see fingers crossed. Hope this was helpful.

I am going through the same thing, only its my 2013 they are waiting for. I was able to fax in my 2013 though since I mailed my initial 2013 1040 to the wrong IRS address. I would call and see if they accept a fax for your return. I was told that as soon as they see I don’t owe anything on my 2013 they will immediately(the IRS’ version of immediately) release my 2016 deposit. The fax takes 5-7 for them to receive, mailed in can take 6 to 12 weeks for processing.

HOWEVER, I was on hold for over 2 hours. You have to ASK them what you want to know, they will not give you information.

Hi Im having the same issue. I received 2 different notices to provide my 2013 tax returns after I mailed them I noticed both notices had different addresses to mail my return to. I called and was told either address will work but they still arent showing that they’ve received my return and its been several weeks now. Do you still have the fax number you used? Have yoy received your refund as of yet? Thanks!!

Mines says the same I filed on Feb. 2nd accepted on the same day & still a delay in my refund, I’ve called the IRS multiple times & was told different things. First that yes I am under review & on a 60 day hold & a lettter will be sent out. Still no letter. Then I call today I’m told no action is required on my behalf it’s just a delay & I’ll get a generic letter in the mail stating it’s a delay in my refund no dd date as of yet. This is very frustrating to say the least.

I mailed mines in on the 2/02/17 and it was received by the 6th. Wmr didn’t show it being received until they started processing it on the 2/17/17 and has been showing processing ever since. I decided to call today and they told me it was under review but they’re done and suppose to be releasing my funds today, a hard check for some reason. Even though they released my funds it doesn’t mean they’re gonna cut a check today and it could take up to 4 weeks to receive it. If I don’t receive it in 4 weeks I was advised to call back . I hate the fact I paid my taxes on time but it’s taking so long for me to get my loan back

Was just informed by IRS that my returns are held for identity verification BUT they said they sent the required letter to the wrong address–and I have to wait for a new one (2 weeks to send), wait for an appointment, and then 9 weeks to process. I’m now three more months away. Unemployed, overdrawn, broken. The only option to provide the money to take care of my kids is my life insurance–I have to provide for my kids, by any means necessary. I’m afraid this is my only option–I’ve have thought this through and see no other way. I did everything the way I was supposed to, but they didn’t–and now my family is going to pay an incredible price. I just can’t do this anymore.

The posts in here have been helpful–thank you. I hope everyone’s issues work out and refunds start appearing–and I truly hope none of you folks feel compelled to take such drastic actions as I have decided to. Best of luck.

David….I’m not sure if you have a relationship with God but I just want you to know that God is a provider. Keep your head up and trust and believe that death is not the answer. Quick money goes fast. A life insurance policy payout will not sustain your family forever, but you as the head of your family will. God is amazing and your life is more valuable that money. I must say, suicidal thoughts is from the devil and the Devil is a liar. Hold on, your money is on the way. In the mean time don’t give up. God has a plan for everyone and if you haven’t gotten to know him, try him. He’s a great friend, doctor and provider. I hope and pray you are able to receive this message in time and know that life is more valuable than money…..May God bless you and your family with all that you need.

Just got off the phone with the IRS about 10 minutes ago. Finished return on Jan. 19th via Turbo Tax. Cust. Service Rep told me that they didn’t start accepting returns this year until Jan. 29th (first I’d heard of that.) Also was told that I should have a letter any day now requesting an additional piece of information, but of course she couldn’t tell me what that was and it couldn’t be handled over the phone (would have been too easy.) All the while I’ve been checking WMR multiple times per day and have had the same message since Feb. 16th “we have received your return and it is being processed.” The ultimate kicker is that this action required by the letter I’m receiving could extend my timeline out 30-45 days! Unbelievable.

Filed Feb. 6th and they received it the same day.
Called the IRS two weeks ago and they told us they were sending out a letter Mar. 6th (today). We called again this morning and they said it wouldn’t get here until the 13th.

Because my husband just lost his job, we called the tax advocate service and were denied help because when we filed we had applied for a refund advance loan (which we were denied for). So, now we’re most likely going to be evicted or at least without utilities with the small children in the house. What can we do? Is there even anything we can do?

If I receive the letter I will keep you posted because the irs said they didn’t need any additional information from me but tax advocate said it’s very likely they do need more info

Give me my money $$$ March 8

I just called today (March 8, 2017 at 9:00am EST). I filed my taxes on 02/10/2017. Was told I have a CP05 letter being sent via mail on 3/13/2017. Also said I need to take no actions and it could take up to 2 weeks for the letter to arrive in my mailbox. I think they are intentionally holding everyone’s money because they know next year additional cuts will be coming from Trump. Gee…..Thanks!!

I’m a hard working mom of 3 and we needed that money to get through the end of the school year with spring break camp costs, end of year field trips, paying off debt etc. like many of you probably reading this.

This waiting game sucks! I wish they would just keep it real because they have no problem snatching taxes biweekly from my paycheck.

“still processing…will provide a refund date when available”–the IRS is “still processing” but I’m still bleeding money. In all honesty, I am down to $130 in the bank, $43 in my pocket, and a couple of decent personal belongings remaining to take to a pawn shop. My 13 year-old actually tried to lend me the $300 he has saved (he lives with his mother)–I almost cried (but I was also really proud of him). He actually is worth more than I am at the moment. It’s hard enough day in and day out to live this way, but right now it is compounded with a feeling that my government is failing me. I might be unemployed right now, but I earned that refund last year when I had a good job–that’s my money. If I had worked with the unbelievable (and inexcusable) inefficiency and insensitivity of the IRS, I would I have been fired before the end of my first day in my job. Worst part about that is, no one with any power/influence/compassion will care enough to hold this bloated government agency responsible. This might seem like a strong statement to some, but I feel that unquestionably our government has failed us. Of the people, by the people, and for the people–what a joke.

There is a delay in processing your tax return.
If you have questions or need additional information, please have the following on hand when you call: A copy of this page. A copy of your tax return. The Social Security Number, Filing Status, and refund amount claimed on your return. Any notice that you have received concerning your refund.
Please mention reference number 1541 to the IRS Customer Service Representative
IRS Hours of Service: Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

I am still waiting for my refund or a notice on my refund . It has been 9 weeks now and heard nothing. I finally called a tax advocate to see if they could help and I no is they held mine to verify my income . That should tell the IRS I am in need of my money to live on . In stead they hold it and don’t tell me nothing so it will even take that many more weeks to get it . This system need to get fixed because it’s not working for the poor people like me .

I read this morning that the IRS paid out like $64million in fraudulent returns last year. They’re just trying to catch the errors because it costs them a lot of money. In addition, they’ve updated their systems and ran into some initial errors. This is what is causing a lot of the headache. Most of the returns that were fraudulent claimed the child tax credits. Hence the reason a lot of you are caught up.

The state refunds are a different matter. California simply is staggering refunds because of lack of funds on their end. BS, I know, but unfortunately, we can’t do anything. The best we can do is to try to either owe or get nothing back.

When I click on the CONTACT US link provided in that statement, it brings up Reference Code 1541. I had tried to order my transpripts but it kept telling me they were not available.

Filed and was accepted January 13th with EIC so I knew they wouldn’t start processing until mid February. Today I am still getting the “processing ” status so I called.
I’m under a 60 day review which they started February 13th. No letter has been mailed yet but they have ordered one to be mailed. She couldn’t tell me for sure when but possibly March 13th. She said it would just say they are reviewing. There are no actions I need to take or further information they need from me at this point.

Are the 60 days only business days or 60 days in general?

This is incredibly frustrating.

They said my return was being held because of the EITC and Child Tax Credit which I was aware of prior to filing my taxes. Now, we’re obviously well past the 2/15 date of processing of those held returns but they won’t give me any information as to why it’s being held. I’ve tried every trick in the book to try and get them to give me some sort of information but nothing is working. I’ve been filing the same for the last 5 years since my son was born. I don’t see what the hold up is. If there’s an issue with something like needing to confirm my identity, just tell me and I’ll send what I have to. Stop having me be stuck in la la land and give me some sort of update.

Starting to get incredibly frustrated over here.

Same here. Only difference is my husband was told last week that they would be sending a letter on March 6th. Why wait that long?? And they wouldn’t tell us what it would say it what was needed. It could even be a letter stating they were just going slow reviewing it. -_- so stupid.

Me either. And they said none have been generated (yet). It’s incredibly frustrating. It’s not that I NEED the money but it would certainly be nice considering I’m in the process of buying a home and would like the extra cash soon to cover extra closing costs and all.

Hopefully we all get some sort of update soon.

Im sadly having a lot of the same problems. Im 21, single and have no children and nothing to really claim. My tax return was accepted Jan 31st and I waited the typical 21 days and I had nothing. Then the information bar completely went away and about 7 days later the IRS says its processing. My job made me part time for this month and I was really hoping for my tax money to help support me instead of the $35 dollars in my bank account. This sucks. Causing so many problems and heartache for people.

Does anyone know if there is any way to get help before the dreaded 21 day wait has ended? I’m down to $300 in my checking after some bills, with no solid income on the horizon (I’m unemployed), so I’m really on the verge of collapse here. I’m in the “accepted 2/17–processing with WMR bars–bars disappear–stuck at the ‘still be processed…date will be provided when available’ stage.” I’m getting close to living in my car with my dog unless my refund arrives soon. Like most here, I’m unbelievably frustrated, but I’m also really scared. Does anyone have some insight on how I can find help, or am just stuck at the mercy of a mammoth, bloated, immoveable government bureaucracy? Sometimes I feel like I care more about this country than the government does…”of the people, for the people, and by the people”…my @ss…

I just called the IRS they say my taxes are under review. My husband and I have four children, three of which are ours and a foster son. She told me I had to wait, it could take up to sixty days… We have never had any issues ever before, never had to pay ever, in fact we both pay in extra so we don’t. We need our money, like I said I have a family of four children and I am trying to do the right thing here by helping the government by raising some else child and not asking them for assistance. I know they have to keep us safe but I do think if records are under review there has to be a faster process. Btw I had my taxes done by a Brooker doesn’t that count in the governments eye for something. It’s not like I did the on line.

I filed my taxes using Turbo Tax and filed head of household claiming my 5 year old son. I am a single mother who efiled. My return was accepted January 27 by IRS. The State deposited into my account on 2/15. I still have not recieved my Federal. The wheres my refund is giving me false information that my refund was sent to my bank. No such deposit made. I hear that there is a delay with the federal but why give false information? i’ve tried all the #’s to reach them and all i get is the automated system.. If there was something wrong with my tax why not an email / letter mailed to my attention or even a phone call. Even at IRS.GOV why not keep the people informed?

MAJOR UPDATE:
Ok so some of you may have seen a couple of my posts and here is the whole run down…
I filed January 24th, 2017 and was accepted the same day…I filed two child credits, head of household…Was told I had to wait until the 15th for Path act to release my return and start processing….Ever since the 15th, with each big update, My status remained with the dreaded ” We have received your tax return and it is being processed.” I called the IRS 4 times and each time I was told that there was nothing wrong, no red flags, NOTHING! On the last call, I was told that I should wait until the 27th for the next big update, and I should get a date…ok…cool….27th comes around….guess what….NO DATE!!! so finally instead of waiting, I called that very morning on the 27th, and was finally told I had been selected for review and that I would be getting A CP05 notice pretty much stating that they needed to review my return and once they were satisfied they would release it within 60 days….I THINK NOT! so now that I finally have the answer of what was really going, I went ahead and followed some advice to talk to a tax advocate…Today, I called, and explained my situation of hardship, (eviction and Car repossession) and that I really needed to find a quicker way to release my funds….She of course verified my identity, and placed me on hold, she then returned with a pin number and transferred me to another rep, I was on hold for about 1hour and half, and finally the other rep picked up and asked for my transfer pin, (given by prior representative)….once given, He again verified my identity and put me on a brief hold to research my account….Come to find out, my return was put on review because My income was not available in the system at the time my return was accepted to be verified….WOW REALLY? so he looked at everything and said everything matched up and nothing was wrong and that the tax advocate should have no problem in lifting the hold on my return…By March 6th I was told my tax advocate would contact and begin the process of resolving my hold, and that I should have my return within the next 2 weeks…its still a while but its better than 60 days! so to everyone experiencing this, get a tax advocate! im so relieved!!!!

I Filed the same way the previous individual did and on january, 19th and it was a simple return nothing to it just 1 child to claim nothing else. Well it has been filed, accepted, and now it still says that it is still processing. Seriously? What is the hold up I dont understand like many others we have serious plans with that money but with a majority of planned on paying some important bills well now we have become delinquet with a few things to where were now in deeper water then we were before. I would think that the returns that just make no since at all with the possibility of being fraudulant would be looked at more carefully not all the normal ones who every year for the past 10 yrs have filed the same status, same kid, same job, same address, i mean nothing on our returns change and so why now are they having to further examine ours? I just dont and never will understand this country the reasoning for why they do things to the american people. Did you guys know that in london actually all of europe their tax’s are filed for them automatically they dont have to do anything like what we have to do! I wonder if that’s better?

Call the IRS tax advocate tomorrow morning. Let them know you are in a hardship. Then after verifying your identity, you will be transferred to an actual advocate. Be prepared to be on hold for at least an hr and a half. I was on hold this evening for 2 hrs to get a message they were closed. It’s my understanding you will or should have ur refund in two weeks, but they closed before I finished the process. Good luck to u and ur family.

I requested a transcript and despite my phone being registered to me for over 12 years they said it couldn’t be verified with AT&T so I am waiting for a letter. We have slowly been seeing a decline in our refunds over the years, but this year it is so small it’s like I can’t believe that some people get back $12000 and they are holding mine up. You would think those big ones would be the ones that took longer. I suppose I will just keep waiting like everyone here.

Filed Jan. 19th via Turbo Tax. Married-Jointly. Accepted same day. Showed several days on WMR site of being received, then got the PATH Act notice until morning of Feb. 16th. Checked already this morning (3-1-17) and still showing that my refund has been received and is being processed. Last year took 17 days from acceptance to refund being deposited, but I keep hoping for a quicker turnaround this year, already at day 14 since Feb. 15.

What I don’t understand is that while the IRS may’ve had to hold EITC and ACTC refunds until Feb. 15th what was stopping them from processing those returns as soon as they came in, and then having the returns ready to release on the 16th??? Typical government/bureaucracy nonsense.

I just got off the phone with the IRS a little bit ago (including wait time, just over an hour–but that was after a 1 1/2 hour phone call with the Social Security department…my brain is tired). Is anyone else having problems with this process because of change in filing status? The online customer service system refuses to acknowledge my new status (single–recently divorced), which is how I filed this year. The system only lets me register as filing joint at my old family address–no information about 2016 filing is available. The woman at the IRS said it probably never would be without calling and requesting each report–she said I can never have a new “single status” account because I’ll never be able to use my new status due to it being being licked to the same Social Security number as my old status. Basically, I am eternally married in the IRS system (that news didn’t excite my ex-wife very much). Because of this, I can’t get any information on my returns/refund for this year. I was accepted on Feb 17–but even the record of that seems to be gone now, but all she could tell me was that the money I still owed for last year was not paid by my refund yet and didn’t know if it would be. Nothing else. I feel less informed than I ever did before they gave us of the helpful online “tools.” Any one struggling with changed filing status, disappearing returns, or a total lack of ANY information?

When I got divorced and filed head of household the following year, I got audited. They told me I got audited because for years it was married filing jointly and due to the sudden change, they wanted to know why. After explaining to them that I was no longer married, they continued to process my return but they had to start from the beginning and it was going to take 8-12 weeks to receive my refund!
I file head of household now and have for 5 years without any other problems.

WMR for me hasn’t even updated with notice there is a delay but I called Friday and got home to a letter same day saying they were missing my 2012 return. I had an offset back then so I never looked for refunds just sent my stuff and went on with my life. I mailed in the copy I have saved for that year and who knows what will happen now. Knowing the IRS they will find some way to keep as much of the refund I need badly as possible even though I should’ve got almost 3k of a refund for 2012 it was due to child tax and EIC credits. I got my refund last year no issues so it seems they waited until just after I can’t claim the refund and sent notice over 3 years later rather than sending this notice for the 2013-2015 tax years? Like that’s not totally obv so mad

They don’t process in the order it was received but randomly. I filled electronically through HR Block by the way. I may file with someone else next year to see if it goes faster.

Sams here. I filed with turbo tax, my refund was accepted Jan. 31. I claimed the EIC AND ACC. I have been going to WMR everyday, and still no update, no deposit date, nothing. It just says we have accepted your refund and it it being processed. What the hell is going on??

I didn’t have anything extra to add. I did however file single this year and not head of household. That would be the only difference from all the other years.

Well, I’m glad yet sad to see that I’m not the only one who this is happening too…..how freaking long does it take to process!! I did mine on 2/7 and its still processing!! I did my sisters days after mine and she got a refund yesterday!! WTH!!!

Carl Hall March 2

I did mine with liberty on 2/6 e-filed I was told that I may get it the 15th then the week of 27 the only message I have is being processed…. it’s now Thursday of week 27th lol and nothing yet very much looking forward to getting my money back???

My husband filed on Feb 3rd. The where’s my refund thing has only ever said: your return is being processed. Eic credit..people we know filed after us claiming the same already have their refund. Already got our state. No codes, no nothing. We called our tax professional and found out there is nothing wrong except..it has been approved but no send date?! She said she doesn’t know why bc there is usually a send date. No notices in the mail. This is ridiculous that no one can tell us anything.

Man if you received a advance your money might be on that card! I checked mine and it’s been on there since last week! I guess since I had to pay back the money I got the same day. It was on a green dot card! Check it if you still have it

Erica February 28

In the WMR gave the code 1541, I understand that code may mean that there is only a delay because the system can not generate all the tax returns. I am head of household I have two young children. I depend on these taxes especially since I take out extra just for a bigger chunk back. If I have to pay taxes on time, why can’t the government give is our money back on time? This is very frustrating, today is the 28th and still says “take action” and code 1541.

WMR was stagnant x5 wks so I decided to call IRS. Went back and forth for 40 mins with full name, DOB, SSAN, verification of parents’ names, address verification and how long have I resided at address. Was told to have 2015 and 2016 filing available, W2s available and documents regarding school interest. They stated that they will send me a “letter” and to make sure that all documentation is available when I call them.

Any theories?

I had a DDD of feb 23 and have not yet received anything IRS said to give it to Monday night feb 27th or Tuesday morning feb 28th if not received to call my bank to see if they received anything they said nothing yet. They mention I might have fail into the delay category for the earning income credit or child tax credit it was saying there not releasing those till this week although on where my refund online says it has already been sent to bank. My boyfriend did his same day same time as mine and got DDD on feb 23rd as well and he got his already im not sure if it because he owed unemployment so they might have been pushy about there portion so that may be why he received his already i don’t know.

Hi. I just tried to order transcripts but I have N/A listed for this year’s return. But if I check the transcripts for the account, it shows the $2800 I owed for last year (an amended return) as being a 0.00 balance. Does this mean that the $2800 has been taken from this year’s refund–even though I can’t find any evidence of there being a refund approved for this year? Somewhere they seem to have found $2800 to cover past taxes–seems like it has to be from this year’s return. Sorry if this sounds confusing–but it is!!! This year’s tax season has been an emotional rollercoaster and I’m getting some severe motion sickness. Please, any insight would be greatly appreciated

It would have to be from the 2016 tax year return. FYI, if they did use part or all of your return to offset a previous tax liability, you will get the remainder of the funds in a PAPER check. It will not be DD.

Same here ! I was accepted on 2/12. I have the same exclamation mark that says TAKE ACTION SEE BELOW FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON YOUR REFUND. aLL IS SAYS “bELOW” IS There is a delay in processing your tax return. There is no code no anything. However, it also says, if you have a question contact us. When I click on the “contact us” portion of that statement it takes me to a page with Reference Number 1541. It’s been the same now for 2 weeks, and I have not received a letter either. Anyone?

Harold Hayes February 27

I am having the same headache as most of you. I filed my return very early. I filed thru Turbo Tax. IRS accepted my return on the 23rd of January. I did keep in mind that returns wont be released until after the 15th and that most returns will be sent out the week of the 27th. IRS sent me a letter in the mail basically saying that I had to verify some information, just for safety. The form was a 4883c form. I had to call them and give them very little information. I was told everything was verified and that I should continue to check the “were’s my Refund tool.” Well today is the 27th, and I havent heard anything and the WMR tool still say’s ” We are proccessing your refund.). I try to call but it’s unsuccessful. I hope everything is okay. People like myself depend on this money for bills.

I have not had an update in WMR since the 15th of February…its been the same message “We have received your tax return and it is being processed”. I have called the IRS 4 times since the big update on the 18th of Feb, (reason being because most people I know who filed the child credit and filed after me, had already been given a date for the 23rd…where as I filed the 24th of Jan with child credit and still no date) and they thoroughly researched my account [[of course after persistently not accepting their generic reason of why mine could still be held up, and answering some simple id verification questions,]] and stated that there was nothing that posed as a red flag, nor did they see a notice being mailed out to me for verification…in other words, I should still be receiving my refund with no issues. So I asked then, why havent I gotten an update at the very least? If my account is so normal, I should have had a date as well, if not, my whole refund at this point…so again they tried to tell me there was nothing i can do except wait until the 27th for an update, or that wed for an update…until then its all a waiting game….I filed the freakin 24th of last month and its still nothing! Way past 21 days i feel like im in Limbo!

Hi Joana and to anyone who this may apply t. I myself have claimed the EIC and the ACTC. I filed on the 14thof Feb and my WMR did not change until last night or early this morning. The IRS updates the WMR only once a day and believe it or not its not until after 3am. I didn’t believe it either but I checked mine after midnight around 1am and nothing. Then I remembered hearing about the whole 3am thing and I got up at 3:44am and checked and sure enough it changed from Return received to Return accepted. And also said that the funds will be deposited by March 1st. So I’m hoping by the 27th or 28th. But shit even if I have to wait until Mar 1st. Better then another few weeks to a month awy.

So i received my letter today, the irs had to verify my employers health coverage plan. The letter shows everything has been correct and i have a small fine so hopefully i will receive my return soon. I also called customer service irs return dept she just repeated “wait for lettah” so hopefully this is a good sign

Did he tell you on where’s my refund that you were mailed a letter?

Lorin Marie Lago Dannar February 24

Well they are holding my return saying I didn’t file in 2012. At that time I had a tax offset so I wouldn’t have even bothered to check on refunds due so I didn’t have any clue they didn’t receive my return until today. I’ve had to get transcripts due to my daughters college 2013 forward so I knew those were processed and they issued my refund offset just fine, yet they wait until now to send me this? Ok so I need to find those old documents and file it I need my refund this year but I now can’t claim any of the dependent credits it looks like which pretty much forces me to owe them plus fees I’m sure, the credits are a big part of my overage on my return. I am so upset right now I don’t even know what to do. If anyone knows what credits I would be able to claim plz let me know just ugh

Try calling who you Filed with and get the account number it Was Supposed To Be sent to. They probably have the wrong account number . This happened to me today.

My return was accepted 1/26 and my status still shows processing. I thought waiting until the week of the 27th was bad but if it were coming I think it would at least show as approved by now

Can anyone who has called tell me the number they used and then options chosen that got you to someone that could actually help? I’ve either got stuck in a loop of automated options that get me nowhere or transferred around all over but ran out of time on my break and can’t hold just to be transferred again.

I needed this money badly for my electric arrangement, so stressed out

I love how i can loan the feds money all year, interest free, and when I try to make it easier and faster on them by efiling and using direct deposit it blows up in my face. never again will i be responsible and swift with my filing. this is unbelievable because it sounds like by reading this forum that anyone who filed in the month of january are actually being punished. never again

Reply

Tosha J Williams February 27

Chris,
I don’t believe that this delay is apllying to those who filed in January. I filed Feb 1st and still haven’t received any more information other than still pending. I think it has to do with all of the changes being made in our government and not mention all of the identity theft is affecting everyone. At first, I honestly did mind the IRS taking the extra precautions. I was a victim of tax identity theft when I e-filed last year with Taxslayer, in which I had used for the past 7 years without any problems. But I think this waiting without any valid explanations is terrible!

Reply

Tami February 28

I filed on January 23, received the same review letter dated February 3, 2017 (before they were even processing EIC returns…and it says “up to 60 days” which I find quite humorous since I went under a complete audit 2 years ago because my ex also claimed the children on my year, got a letter I was all set for the next 4 years….seems I’m not all set. I would agree, those of us that fied earlier are the ones they’re pulling, holding our returns. 60 days in this day and age is a ridiculous amount of time to review anything when they have all information they need and they are working 24-7…it should take a day to ‘review’ information, ask for anything else they need.

Everyone try to remember once the WMR says “sent” that it doesnt mean we will have our money that second or day or next. The financial institutions everyone chooses to do business with ALL have different processing times themselves. Almost everyone that gets their refund approved dd will see 2 dates. Like mine says will be sent on 3-1-17 but dont really expect to use it til 3-6-17. The banks need time to do the pending transfers and everything that goes with it! Kk. Hope this helps

@MShea. I filed 2/3. Called yesterday and was told they sent a letter weeks ago that I have to verify my ID. Told them I never received it. Nothing.

This morning I called again. Tried to make an appt at the local office. “You need the letter”. I do not have the letter you supposedly sent weeks ago and will not send another. “Well you need it to verify your ID”. Once again. I never received it. You won’t send another. I work for a Hosp so getting off of work to make an appt is difficult. “Oh well you need the letter” and she hung up

The US Treasury should pay us interest on our over payment of estimated taxes. They use our money for an ENTIRE YEAR…then F around with all kinds of excuses on why there is a delay getting MY MONEY BACK INTO MY ACCOUNT….If we owe them money, by God they will charge us a PENALTY and INTEREST. They should pay interest on the money we over pay since it is basically a loan to the government. What’s good for us is good for them!

Reply

Andy (Author) February 24

(From Jazzy) Paper check are only delayed by 2 extra days than Direct Deposit. Usually paper checks are mailed on Friday’s and you usually get within 1 week; the following Friday or sooner. The US Postal usually don’t deliver Refund checks until Saturday morning to prevent someone watching your mail and stealing the check. Most people are home on weekends and know what time their mailman comes on that day to check for their refunds. If, you have yet to receive your check it should be in your mailbox Saturday morning; but it could be today. Never know if the post office still use this practice as they did when we ONLY could do PAPER Return way before this efile came about. Did not find anywhere in the manual that is ONLY mail them out on Friday’s….but that is the norm.

3.30.123.4.9 (01-01-2017)
IMF Daily Processing

IMF Refund Payment Date -The IMF Refund Payment Date will be computed by IMF for both Direct Deposit and Paper Check refunds and will be listed on the refund transaction TC 846 in fields:

“RFND-PAY-DATE” on IMFOL, format MMDDYYYY

“RFND-PYMT-DT” on TXMOD, format YYYYMMDD

IMF computes this field as the posted cycle date PLUS four business days for Direct Deposit refunds; posted cycle date PLUS six business days for Paper Check refunds.

Hey I have had this same message since mine was excepted on Jan. 27 as well. I filled on the 19th of Jan. I’ve checked every day and nothing has changed. After my third time consuming the IRS I finally found out that I was pulled for review. Actually anyone who has this message has been pulled for review. I’m not sure if it’s random or what. I was told to sit tight for two to three weeks for a letter. Hope this helps.

The irs bar only updates in the middle of the night so remember if they sent it any time after midnight last night the WMR will still show pending or not sent yet.

Just received my deposit around 9:10ish am. DDD is today 2/23/17. I’m banking with a local federal credit union if that helps. Good luck and I hope everyone receive their hard-working money ASAP!

Ps: WMR status still showing approved and not sent. Usually the system will update on the next update date : \

My direct deposit date is feb 23 but it’s going to a closed bank account and I opened a new account to have it redirected to the open account any suggestions on would it delay my deposit thanks

I have the same problem

amber February 23

you should call the person that did you taxes or the irs they should tell you

Justhereforthecomments February 23

They are going to send you a paper check. They only attempt DD once.

#forthepeople February 24

If the account is with the same bank and you still have the account number to the closed account then you can call the bank and find out if there is a deposit PENDING TO POST to that account. There are reps that may tell you that they can’t see that information……please don’t just accept that because they can definitely find that out for you if not see it themselves but, to answer your question yes. That’s why you should call on the closed account because assuming that the bank already knows to transfer the funds to your new account, usually it doesn’t just automatically transfer. It may take several days and sometimes just by calling and informing them that the funds have not been transferred after receiving them they can make it happen immediately. Hope this helps ☺
