People NOW Seeing Their Tax Refunds Banked Plus Tips on What to do if Your Refund Has Not Yet Been Received

1,229 comments

[Latest Update] The IRS is now releasing refunds for taxpayers who claimed the EITC/ACTC, which were being held back under the PATH Act. They have however stressed that taxpayers should not expect refunds to be available in bank accounts or on debit cards until the week of Feb. 27. Some people are seeing it earlier depending on their refund deposit method.  The refund payment timing is due to several factors, including weekends, the Presidents Day holiday and the time needed for treasury and banks to process direct deposits. Your WMR status (see the end of the article for details) will indicate “processing” until then or will be updated if additional non-PATH related information is needed.

Although, Treasury and Banks state they are closed for the Presidents Day holiday; a lot of actions are going on behind the scene. Trust me IRS started releasing funds on the midnight of the 15th – 18th to the treasury. The treasury has the ability to send funds out electronically automatically within min/hours to banks. They processed over 15 millions returns during that time frame.

Those who had dates of 22nd, most got their refund deposited on Friday. I was one of them. Those on the 23rd are the ones that will get theirs on Tues/Wed. The banks have the funds already; they just aren’t releasing until starting midnight tonight up until Wed…


Think about it, if it only takes let’s just say 24/48 hours for the banks to get the refunds from the treasury…then those that went out on the 15-16…reached the banks in time for Friday releases. Those on 17-18 will release on Tues./Wed. It is the bank that are holding those refunds until after the holiday…IRS warned the delay are with the BANKS, not the Treasury or them.

The IRS had this strategy planned long time ago when they started that PATH law…they knew how they was going to roll out the releases…Treasury Dept. has the capabilities to release without being Opened.

My mom/dad gets SS and their checks are released (5) days and their bank hold it in “pending” status until the date on the check…the same thing for Refunds…some banks don’t hold (depends) on your bank policy. My credit union don’t hold. Don’t be fooled…technology allows anything to process in real time…electronically means just that…real time….just like an email can come from me to you….within minutes.

Oh by the way everyone take a look at your WMR up until you actually get your refund. I have read where some have posted that Sat they had DDD, then Sunday it changed back to ..”we are processing your return…and this weekend that got a ltr 4883 (id verification) or 4464c, and letters asking to fax 1095 health form…varies issues…their DDD was pulled and placed back on hold….

So, don’t spend that money until you actually have it in your bank account/hands…IRS is pulling a lot of tricks this year…

I know everyone may have the same question, so instead of trying to reply to everyone individually, there is nothing you can do from now until Saturday but pray you are one of the lucky ones that will get an update and DDD or 846 on your transcript between now and the 18th.

I HIGHLY recommend you call all day today and speak to as many IRS rep you need to if you got questions or concerned there may be an issues, hold or review that may delay you further..

It only takes 10-15 minutes to get thru this line…(800) 829-0582 ext. 652. Just tell them you got a code on the WMR this morning saying you were instructed to call; but you don’t recall what the code was and you are not at a computer to log in…do I have a letter being mailed or do I need to verify my ID or something? This is a sure way to get them to call up your return to take a look…

If they say just the WMR by the 18th this is a “secret” code for – You will be seeing DDD on or before that day on the WMR…you can get them to but you have to be very persuasive and persistent which take a lot of work…lol. Heck I was worn out after that call…smh. But it was well worth the answer I got at the end. :-).

HINT: Make you your message on the WMR does not say “processing”…but instead “processed”…there is a huge difference…”processing” mean something is still going on and you are not fully done…the other YOU ARE.

The reason for the different wording is for those who did not get the PATH message in the first place; and who still have we are still processing your return and a date will be available….(This is how they can tell them apart).

Morning ALL: You know I can’t come on here without my morning “update”…lol. Been on the phone with IRS since 7:30 – to just now (9am). 1st Rep Ms. Camp – wasn’t buying anything I said, she wouldn’t even pull me up; just kept referring to the script for eic/actc folks. Of course, I don’t take no for an answer that easily :-). So, of course I just politely hung and hit those digits again as fast as my little fingers could dial…hehehehehe. I know I know get to the point…lol. 2nd Rep a Mr. Cartino…geez. Anyways..this was our convo:

1. I said can you look and see if they finish by Audit for 2014? Answer: ask all those questions to get there to view.
2. I said I am concern it will affect my 2016; can you see what is going on with it? Answer: that got his attention so he look back at 2014 and said did you get a letter in the mail. I said no, haven’t checked my mail in a week. He said well they closed the audit and you owe back -0-. I already knew this of course.
3. Now can you see the 2016 status? Answer: When did you file…I told him I was a test batch. After all that back and forth; he said you should have been processed long time ago, but with the PATH we had to hold it until yesterday.
4. I said I know that sucks..when am I getting a DDD? Answer: You should have been processed systematically, let me take a look. Then he said what is your bank routing and acct number? He kept putting me on hold.
5. Finally, he told me; You will be updated by the 18th and have a DDD for the 22nd. But allow 5 days for the bank to process which will be the latest in your account by the 27th.
6. Before we hung it he ask if I had a hardship? Of course I say YES….you think? Yaw kept my money this long I have several hardships which one you want me to name I got a LIST…lol. Answer: Let me give you a PIN 0065 and transfer you to another division and they may can speed it up. Guess what happened? He transferred me and I got disconnected ugh? But who cares, he already told me what I needed to know…lol. I am a happy camper now :-)

Now that makes a lot of sense. Cause the website state just that. Allow (5) to get to your bank for processing. So, that means everyone that gets a DDD by the 18th will see your refund no later than Wednesday or sooner..but because of the Holiday which my bank is closed…it will be Wednesday.

I tried to ask if transcript would update all day during the day as they release funds, he didnt seem to get what I was saying but just said check the WMR in the morning or Saturday you should see your DDD. As you know me, I am going to check my transcript every hour on the hour…they aint fooling me..lol.

So there is hope that MANY will be getting a DDD this Saturday for the 22nd. He said it did not matter if you are weekly or daily…they are all going out systematically…to HOLDs because they should have already been issued.

[Update Feb 14th] The IRS has confirmed to several readers that seeing the “PATH” message in WMR is a good thing. It means the IRS has reviewed your return and is now holding on processing until Feb 15 as required by law. You should start seeing updates to your WMR status and a Direct Deposit Date (DDD) from Feb 15th or 16th (since WMR updates overnight).

Sharon I spoke with IRS on today, if you claim EIC they should start releasing payments on Wednesday 2/15/17. Also IRS will be working Saturday 2/18/17 & Monday 2/20/17. So hopefully we all should be relieved by the weekend. Special Thanks to Author Andy for this special page!!

Jazzy …You get a FULL PAGE PATH message, starting check back for a personal DDD date after the 15th. Everyone got the 152 path message where you click on the Code 152 to read. The other one…pops up after the bars disappears…. I think people are getting confused about the (2) path message, that’s all…IRS WEBSITE NEWS: By law, the IRS must hold Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit refunds until Feb. 15. Taxpayers will begin to see refunds claiming EITC/ACTC the week of Feb. 27. “Where’s My Refund?” will update for EITC/ACTC refunds beginning Feb. 16, with the vast majority updating by Feb. 18.The IRS will staff its toll-free telephone service Saturday, Feb. 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., callers’ local time, and Monday, Feb. 20, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., callers’ local time.

___

The IRS has reiterated that they will start processing 2016 tax returns on Jan 23rd 2017, but some readers are saying that their refunds have already been accepted. This includes those with EITC and ACTC payments which the IRS has said could further delay refund payments this year.

PATH Act Tax Related Provisions delaying EITC and ACTC

The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (the PATH Act), was enacted on December 18, 2015 and mandates that the IRS not issue a refund on tax returns claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit until Feb. 15. The additional time helps the IRS stop fraudulent refunds from being issued to identity thieves and fraudulent claims with fabricated wages and withholdings.

Jennifer says in a comment on the 2017 IRS refund schedule “My return was accepted on the 17th. I received an email early Tuesday morning and checked and it was. So I guess some were actually accepted before the 23rd. I do get eitc but not actc.” Gerri on the same article says, “My return was accepted January 12th, 2017. I find it odd that turbo tax is already giving me a date range. I thought the irs was delaying EIC returns. If that’s the case, how is it possible that Turbo tax has a date for me already. I am hoping that since I filed so so early this year, that maybe the irs is processing some returns to test the system out. Maybe some of us that claim the EIC will not get delayed. Hmmmm….wishful thinking I suppose!”

This prompted the following replies:

Christine – Mine was accepted by the IRS (not H&R Block which I used because my husband is Military) today on the 18th. We have always claimed EIC, so I am hoping ours doesn’t get held. Not because I have pressing issues or bills to be paid.
Amanda – My return was accepted on 1/17/2017 by the IRS. I too claim EIC. I spoke to a tax expert and was told they are not holding all EIC returns. If you have always claimed your child/children and had no major changes they are processing your return on time.
Brandon – Mine was accepted on Friday the 13 th been claiming same 2 children for 10 years at hr block no changes on return at all
Kristen – So not everyones will be getting held? Mine was accepted today and i filled today

So what is going on?

This is definetly creating some confusion for readers. But the answer is simple. The IRS was clear that processing would not start till Jan 23rd. But they will clearly accept earlier. Receiving/Accepting your return vs approvingWMR Status Graphic/processing your refund is two different things. To see this more clearly look the official IRS Where’s My Refund tool process diagram which shows the following sequence of how they accept. process and pay out refunds. You can see that when a refund is received (or accepted) it means that it is in queue for processing. But it does not mean it is approved and/or a refund is ready to be paid.

The three status’ in the official IRS WMR tool are (1) Return Received (sometimes = return accepted), (2) Refund Approved and (3) Refund Sent. Sometimes if you are using popular online tax filing tools like TurboTax or H&R block, you may see them showing refund approved. but that is the status in their system or based on an IRS refund payment estimate they have derived from past years. You need to go to the official IRS WMR tool page to see the personalized IRS processing status and refund information/date.

Sarah, the link is being moderated; so you can go to IRS website…look for the Transcript link…or wait until my post updates…ok.

Go to this site and see if you have the information to sign up to view online. It will ask you a series or questions. Car loan acct # or credit card number and a cell phone number that must be in your name or from a carrier that they work with to verify info. (tmobile. ATT, Sprint) etc…

If not call this number and do not order the transcript hit 0 to talk to a live person. Tell her you need the transcript for school and ask her if she can pull it up and give you the codes, ask her to see if she see code 846. Also, you can ask if she can fax it….not sure if they are still allowing that…you would have to give her a fax number by downloading a fax app or your office fax number, but tell them it is your home fax number…it is worth the try.

Transcript #800-908-9946 – if you ask for it to be mailed…you will have your refund before it comes…it take 5-7 days or more…

Sarah, I tried also and now it is now accepting -0-. So, call the regular IRS 800) 829-0582 ext. 652 and tell her you need your transcript and is having trouble ordering it…for school. Tell her you want the “account” transcript and return…while she is pulling it up…ask her if she can see the code 846 on the account one or if she can confirmed the DDD for 3-15-17. If she confirmed that is true…then you know tomorrow the WMR should update if not, it is just the system…

Hi Sarah,

GF, you should see a DDD tomorrow morning for 3-15-17. Believe the tax advocate when she say a refund is on its way. So, there is no need to send anything…you are done. That was awesome news…yeahhhhhhhh. Look like IRS was able to get the info and it fixed itself.

If you could view your “account” transcript online today…you should see the 846 code with the date of 3-15 next to it. You get ready to dust off your dancing shoes…you about to be one happy camper :-).

Keep me posted in the morning…ok.

Have an awesome weekend….and start writing down your wish list…on how you about to spend that long awaited refund…lol. Happy Spending…even if it is to catch up on bills or for fun…it will still be a huge burden lifted and relief that this tax year is finally about to end…ugh (smh). IRS stresses us all out.

I’ll just wait jazzy they are giving me such a hard time…ive been beyonnnnd stressed with this. I just want to make sure the advocate was correct and i can stop worrying…please pray for me…so i should just wait until the 15th right?

Reply

Jazzy March 10

Sarah, don’t stress anymore…you are getting your refund on or before the 15th. Hope it is going directly to your personal bank account and not a prepaid card. I wish you could view online your account transcript…you would see that 846 code. I pray you wake up in the morning with a ddd on the WMR ….crossing fingers for ya.

Keep the faith and hang in there…can’t wait to hear the good news when you finally see it. Oh, if you had an offset, you call call that number and it will also give you a ddd since they have to take out the money before they release the funds…IRS Offsets Child Support, Student Loans?(800) 304-3107

Jazzy March 10

Sarah,

Remember the WMR does not always update; you may see a pending deposit in your account before you see an update; I had my money and it did not update until a week after I already got my refund…

So, trust me; if nothing changes in the morning…you are still getting that refund on or before the 15th; so keep your eyes on your bank account…make sure the routing number is correct and that the name the refund is in are listed on your account…if not, call the bank ahead of time and tell them the issue so you can fix it. Sure, don’t want your refund rejected and sent back to be reissued a paper check; which could take up to 2-4 weeks. Now that would be a bummer…it has happen to many thus far…

If it is going to a prepaid card; they have had issues as well’ delaying refunds or sending them back because info did not match or account numbers were wrong…I have read it all.

Nine common filing errors to avoid

From IRS.gov

The IRS encourages taxpayers to file an accurate tax return. If a taxpayer makes an error on their return, it will likely take longer for the IRS to process it. This could delay a refund. Avoid many common errors by filing electronically. IRS e-file is the most accurate way to file a tax return. All taxpayers can use IRS Free File at no cost.

Here are nine common errors to avoid when preparing a tax return:

1. Missing or Inaccurate Social Security Numbers. Be sure to enter each SSN on a tax return exactly as printed on the Social Security card.

2. Misspelled Names. Spell all names listed on a tax return exactly as listed on that individual’s Social Security card.

3. Filing Status Errors. Some people claim the wrong filing status, such as Head of Household instead of Single. The Interactive Tax Assistant on IRS.gov can help taxpayers choose the correct status. E-file software also helps prevent mistakes.

4. Math Mistakes. Math errors are common. They range from simple addition and subtraction to more complex items. Transactions like figuring the taxable portion of a pension, IRA distribution or Social Security benefits are more difficult and result in more errors. Taxpayers should always double check their math. Better yet, tax preparation software does it automatically, so file electronically.

5. Errors in Figuring Tax Credits or Deductions. Filers can make mistakes figuring their Earned Income Tax Credit, Child and Dependent Care Credit, the standard deduction and other items. Taxpayers need to follow the instructions carefully. For example, if a taxpayer is age 65 or older, or blind, they should be sure to claim the correct, higher standard deduction. The IRS Interactive Tax Assistant can help determine if a taxpayer is eligible for tax credits or deductions.

6. Incorrect Bank Account Numbers. The IRS strongly urges all taxpayers who have a refund due to choose direct deposit. It’s easy and convenient. Be careful to use the right routing and account numbers on the tax return. The fastest and safest way to get a refund is to combine e-file with direct deposit.

7. Forms Not Signed. An unsigned tax return is like an unsigned check – it’s not valid. Both spouses must sign a joint return. Taxpayers can avoid this error by filing their return electronically. Sign an e-filed tax return digitally before sending it to the IRS.

8. Electronic Filing PIN Errors. When e-filing, the taxpayer signs and validates the tax return electronically with a prior-year Self-Select Personal Identification Number. If they do not have or know their PIN, they should enter the Adjusted Gross Income from their 2015 tax return originally filed with the IRS. Taxpayers should keep a copy of their tax return.

Beginning in 2017, taxpayers using a software product for the first time may need their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) amount from their prior-year tax return to verify their identity. Taxpayers can learn more about how to verify their identity and electronically sign tax returns at Validating Your Electronically Filed Tax Return. Do not use the AGI amount from an amended return or a return that the IRS corrected.

9. Filing with an expired ITIN. A tax return filed with an expired Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) will be processed and treated as timely filed, but will be processed without any exemptions or credits claimed. Taxpayers will receive a notice from the IRS explaining that an ITIN must be current before any refund is paid. Once the ITIN is renewed, exemptions and credits are processed and any allowed refund paid. ITIN expiration and renewal information is available on IRS.gov

My status keeps sayin processing my return was accepted on the 23 of January. I have talked to so many different people and they all say the same thing it’s up for review the lady I talked to today said she didn’t see anything but if there is something I will get a letter on by march 28 I called a tax advocate and they said they can’t help me unless I’m getting evicted or disconnected I don’t know what to do any advice from anyone

Jazzy March 8

Tina, unfortunately only the IRS and Tax Advocate can tell you exactly what is going on and how long it might take. Every case is different. Here are 9 common errors IRS listed for this year; see if any applies to you. We both know there is something wrong or you would have your refund by now. Let’s see if we can find out why? Did you file all your tax returns for 2012-2015? Do you owe any back taxes? Did you efile with last check stubs? Did you file all of your w-2’s or 1099? Did you file EIC/ACTC or educational credits? This is the most common reason for reviews and hold ups. You may need to amend your return. But you have to demand someone tell you what the reason is…

Note: Demand to speak to a Supervisor (800) 829-0582 Ext. 652; tell them you were instructed to call them cause you got a code on the WMR and you don’t recall what that code was. That will make them look up your return.

The Taxpayer Bill of Rights adopted by IRS in June 2014 provides that taxpayers have the right to receive prompt, courteous, and professional assistance in their dealings with the IRS. They are to be spoken to in a way that is easily understood and any correspondence from the IRS must be clear and understandable. They have the right to speak to a supervisor whenever quality service is not received. For additional information refer to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

2. Call IRS and demand they do a 911 Request Form for an advocate to call you back and call this number as well 1-877-777-4778. Your hardship can be medical or car repairs to get to work or doctor, school for children. It don’t always have to be (evictions or cutoff). So, please try calling again for hardship. Some don’t even ask to see any documentation. If it is for medical…they cannot make you provide that under the HIPPA law.

1. You can figure it out if you can view your “account” transcript to see what codes are listed. If you can order or view both account and return; then your return has been processed and done; just being held up for some reason. If you can’t do it online; then call and ask the rep if she can tell you what they codes are or if she can fax them to you; if you can download the fax app. When you call down order them hit 0 to speak to someone 800-908-9946.

Here are a few more tips to try:
2. Offset line – (800) 304-3107 – see if you owe any debts – once it has been taken, it will give you a DDD. If you owe back taxes; it will not show up on the hotline.
3. Refund Hotline – 1-800-829-1954,
4. 1-866-897-3315 – Delinquent Return Refund Hold, for additional information. Once it is determined the refund in question involves a Delinquent Return Refund Hold, do not address the case in any way. Advise the taxpayer to call 1-866-897-3315.

21.4.1.3.1.2 (10-01-2016)
Return Found/Not Processed

TC 971 AC 111 (CC TXMOD), TRDBV shows UPC 126 RC 0 and TP states they filed the return on MFT 32 Provide the caller with the TPP toll-free number 1-800-830-5084, during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (local time). See IRM 25.25.6.6, Non Taxpayer Protection Program (TPP) Telephone Assistors Response to Taxpayers.

Here are a few steps you can take this morning. If none, works please let me know and I will see if I can find other resources for you to try.

Good luck

Thanks I did the tax advocate the 652# told me the same thing that I have been hearing for weeks! They can’t look at medical stuff can they

Jazzy March 8

Tina, the #652 is IRS, if you call them again, then tell them you want them to fill out the 911 resquest for an advocate and also call the number below to get an advocate (backup). They also work for the IRS, but for YOU. No, they cannot ask for medical documentation; that info is protected under the HIPPA law, they just have to take your word. Anyone dealing with the IRS can bring on sever depression and extreme stress symptoms if you get my drift…lol (wink, wink)….:-)

Tina,

Sorry, I think I misread your previous email. Oh, you were telling me that you call to get an advocate, but the #652 (IRS) keep telling you the same thing…oh I got it. I just don’t get why they won’t tell you…smh.

Well, I hope the advocate will give you the actual reason they are holding your refund; so you can do whatever you need to do to resolve the problem.

Good luck…ok.

Goodnight all…

Kay,

Call IRS and informed that of the issue….ask them for a fax number to send your birth certificate; they may just correct it over the phone if you have filed in the past with the correct name. If not, they will tell you what to do. You can also contact a Tax Advocate and they will allow you to fax to them and they will take care of it for you. While you are on the phone with IRS, if they won’t help you ask them to do a 911 Request Form for an advocate to call you…for a Hardship.

I filed on feb 20 and my wmr still shows they only received it?

Jazzy March 7

Brenda,

If you still have Topic 152 and one bar; then you have nothing to worry about at this time. If you can view your transcript online it will provide you some valuable info as to how far you are in the process. See, if you can order or view both your account and return transcript. If you are able to do so, then at least we know your return has been looked at. If you can get your “return” that means your return is DONE! It is possible you will see an update in the morning or Saturday morning. Don’t panic if you are unable to do so today; you may be a weekly flier which means you will be able to do so on Friday morning for a DDD on Saturday. Being able to order/view either transcript; is the first sign/indication how you are progressing thru the system.

Since it has not been 21 days, IRS will not give you any information nor can you call an advocate at this time. It does not appear anything is holding it up; just processing right now. So, please try to get both transcript by Friday. The Account transcript is the one that will give you the codes that will alert you if anything is holding up your refund or if a notice is being sent to explain why it is being reviewed and what action to take if any.

Also, check the offset line to see if you owe anyone. (800) 304-3107; if you do and they took the money; it will give you a DDD as to when you will get your portion.

Good luck and keep me posted.

Does Filing as Head of Household Cause a delay with the new laws? I like others Filed on 1/27. Still nothing except its being processed. Maybe just a waiting game with being in the PATH rule. Thank you in advance!

I have a question…. this article says something about the difference in wording of, “processing and processed,” it states that if it says processed u are done. My situation is this, Filed and was accepted on 1/27. Received the EIC and the ACTC. Received LTR 4464C, the standard under review letter that tons of folks seemed to receive this year. At one point my WMR read, “We have received your return and it is still in processing.” It now reads, “We have received your return and it is being PROCESSED.” Does this mean that I am OK and I should be receiving my return with no problems?? When contacting the IRS they simply won’t give answers outside of the statement that if they need anything from me I will receive a letter stating what they need. All they will say is my return is under review. I have no bars and no DDD listed on WMR. But this article makes it sound as if there is some hope.
Thanks, Kenzie

Kenzie, – that is awesome news!!!!

Anytime there is even a slight change in the wordings on the WMR, means that an update were done to your processing. Yes, there is a difference between the wordings “processing” and “processed”. Let me ask you this question. Did you use your last paycheck stub rather than your W2? If so, I bet the reason you were flag were because the figures did not match. and usually they don’t. IRS compared with your employers and simply made the math adjustment for you. That is why one of the options on the 4464C states the following:

1. Income reported on your return
2. Income tax withholding amounts your reported on your return.

The other topics:

3. Claims for tax credits you made on your return – (Soley referring to any dependents you claimed). This process doen NOT fix itself…you would have to send a lot of documentation to support that claim and an advocate would be highly recommend to speed up the process.

I am thinking since you filed on 1-27 you use the last paycheck. But there are a few employers who provide W2 to employee early than the 31st. So, if that is not the case; maybe you had more than 1 W2 etc.,

If you can review your transcript online and tell the code and dates or if you see the 846 code you will see a DDD this weekend for next deposits.

Either way, that is GREAT news because your return has movement…and there will be an BIG update in the morning. See if you can order your “account” and “return” transcripts…especially if you were not able to before today. That too is a good sign you are moving in the right direction…

Do you still have 152 topic on the WMR…by the way when you bars disappears that means you should see an update within 24 hours of them disappearing. Do you still see the amount on the side?

Check the WMR in the morning; and let me know if you got your DDD or did the message change and your bars returned. That is a good sign…for sure! Even if you are re sequenced until next week…do you know your cycle code? If you are a weekly that updates on Saturday mornings; if not update; it could be next week for sure.

Good Luck…

Hi Jazzy, just background with a couple of questions. :)
We filed Feb. 6th received the same day. After a few days bars were gone and the path message showed up. After Feb. 16th our message on WMR has always been “We have received your return and it is being processed.” Since then on Feb. 27th we ordered our transcripts. Received them Mar. 3rd also with a 4464c letter. It says they didn’t even process our return until Feb. 27th. At the bottom we have a code 350 dated Mar. 6th and a code 971 right under it dated Mar. 13th.We’ve called the IRS and they won’t tell us any info and always transfer us back to an automated line. So we called the TAS and were denied service because we had applied for a tax advance, which we were denied for, but we’re about to be evicted and get utilities shut off (we can provide them proof). So I guess my questions are, (1.) Since it says”processed” and not “processing”, this is still a good sign? Even though the wording never changed?, (2.) Should we push the TAS harder and make them take our “case”? (We have three small children that live in the home.)

Sorry it’s so long.

Tired,

Very interesting….the 4464 Letter is questioning Wages reported or dependents claimed that they are questioning. So it has to do with either the two reasons you are experiencing the delay. Code 350 and date of 3-6-17 date the should finish reviewing, if they can’t complete the review the date would be move up for another week or two to freeze the return from automatically releasing. The code 971 notice issues date of 3-13-17; is the date you should receive the notice in the mail. Can you view your transcript online to see if the dates have changed since 3-6-17 has passed? I am 100% positive it did or your refund will be released and updated this weekend for a DDD of 3-12 or 3-14. It is possible if IRS was able to fix the problem. If not, then you most definitely need to reach out to a Tax Advocate and DO NOT TAKE a rejection because you were DENIED an advancement. First, call IRS back and demand they process a 911 Request Form for Hardship; then call the tax advocate hotline or the one in your state as backup. Tell them your situation cutoff and evictions and medical reasons (depression/anxiety/stress) etc…if all fails and they keep denying you. Look up your Representatives – (House/State/Congress)….call them and they will contact IRS to help you get answers quickly…that is their JOB to help their Constituents….

If either of these situation below apply to your tax return; then check and see if you file the correct form; if you w-2, 1099, health form, educational credits…all were reported. IRS matched everything against what was sent to them by employers, schools, contractors…etc….if anything was not reported it is Flagged. If you used last check stub vs W-2 and it was off a little; IRS flag as possible fraud…so it must be 100% accurate.

NOTE:
I looked up Code 350 and all I am getting is a reference to (which forms to file) 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, – if this is the case, they are stating you filed on the wrong form.

The other option for 350 is Decedents: Mean one of the taxpayers listed on the return has since passed and you did not file correctly?

When filing electronically, follow the specific directions provided by the software for proper signature and notation requirements. Otherwise, write the word “Deceased,” the decedent’s name, and the date of death across the top of the final individual tax return. If filing a joint return, write the name and address of the decedent and the surviving spouse in the name and address fields. If not filing a joint return, write the decedent’s name in the name field and the personal representative’s name and address in the address field. If a refund is due to the decedent, it may be necessary to file Form 1310 (PDF), Statement of Person Claiming Refund Due a Deceased Taxpayer, with the return. If you’re a surviving spouse filing a joint return, or a court-appointed or court-certified personal representative filing an original return for the decedent, you don’t have to file Form 1310. Court-appointed or court-certified personal representatives must attach to the return a copy of the court document showing the appointment.

If there’s an appointed personal representative, he or she must sign the return. If it’s a joint return, the surviving spouse must also sign it.
If you’re a surviving spouse filing a joint return and there’s no appointed personal representative, you should sign the return and write in the signature area “Filing as surviving spouse.” A surviving spouse can file joint returns for the taxable year in which the death occurred and, if the death occurred before filing the return, for the taxable year immediately before the year of death.
If there’s no appointed personal representative and there’s no surviving spouse, the person in charge of the decedent’s property must file and sign the return as “personal representative.”

Refer to the Form 1041 Instructions to determine if the law requires filing of Form 1041 (PDF), U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts.

Refer to the Form 706 Instructions to determine if the decedent’s estate must file Form 706 (PDF), United States Estate (and Generation Skipping Transfer) Tax Return.

Good luck and please STAY ON THAT PHONE TODAY! KEEP CALLING BACK UNTIL YOU GET AN IRS REP OR ADVOCATE TO TALK TO YOU TODAY…..

Please keep me updated ok. If I think of anything else I will post ok.

Jazzy March 10

Tired,

I didn’t answer your question about “processed” and “processing” yes any changes in the wording on the WMR means something happened and your return has moved forward to the next step…so it is a good chance you could see an update in the morning. Cross your fingers. Also, since you were able to order BOTH transcript that also is a good sign, which mean your return has now fully been processed and COMPLETED/DONE….

What is your cycle code…does it have 05 at the end of it. If so, you are a weekly filer and only will get updates on Saturday mornings….if you get an update on any other day; that means IRS manually processed your return (individually) and not with a (batch) file.

Monday’s is the day IRS update (flag) returns with issues to put back in que – they either release the holds to continue processing or the change the date on your transcript to keep working on it until they resolve the issue…

It can take up to (2) cycles to put you back in que….if all issues or done you could see a DDD this Saturday or by next…but try to at least find out what caused the lengthy delay in the first place…today if possible. If not, you just may have to wait it out…and keep checking your bank account and account transcript for that 846 code. The WMR may not update until a week or so after you already got your refund…check your starting today and up until you get it…you may be surprised.

Tired of the bull March 10

Jazzy,

Thank you for taking the time to answer. You’ve given me some hope that these things can be done. I did accidentally get the 350 code wrong. It is actually the 570 code.

We did call our local TAS rep and demanded that they listen to our situation and they did for the most part. We’re just waiting on some paperwork to fax them. Our cycle # is 20170605 we’re hoping for an update soon.

Again, thank you for the hope. Hope your having a great day. ☀

Jazzy March 10

Tired,

I was kind of puzzled because I never seen anyone get code 350. But yeah 570 is the freeze hold stopping your refund from being released. Well, if you got them to accept a fax; then you are on your way to resolving the issue. Also, be sure to include in your fax a request for them to MANUALLY release your refund due to your extreme hardship. Instead of delaying you up to possibly a week 2 to get back in que. Since you are weekly; if you don’t see a DDD tomorrow; then it will be either the 18th or 25th DDD for the following week (wed/fri) of either week.

I am glad you at least found out what they are requiring…that’s progress. Stay on them and soon this journey dealing with IRS crap will soon be over. Hang in there and I will keep you and your family in my prayers; I hope the little ones are doing ok as well. God will always be right on time….trust in HIM…and he will come thru for you and your family.

Try to relax this weekend and know you are not alone…we care and please keep me updated ok.

Take care…TGIF (can’t wait) to start my weekend…:-).

Good luck…

Unfortunately no DDD yet. Waiting on some paperwork to come in the mail to fax to the TAS. Didn’t get a chance to call or anything today, hopefully tomorrow.

Jazzy March 14

Tired,

Is there anyway you can request that paperwork via email or can you go pick it up. The faster you can get it and faxed the sooner you will have your refund released.

Contact whomever it is and see if they can fax it to you or directly to IRS at the fax number they gave you.

Good luck and keep me posted ok. The next update is Wed and Saturday….who knows it just may fix itself…crossing fingers…but if they ask for it….you MUST send it ASAP….or you will continue to be delayed….

So, do whatever you can ok to get it to them by today or tomorrow….you may have a DDD this weekend if you can.

I called irs again because they receive my refund on jan 30 and i still doesnt have a date or a letter..when i called they said it will be a letter sent out on march 13 saying im under review if theres nothing wrong ill receive my refund within 60 days does it really take 60 whole days..and im not understanding if my return been under review all this time why am i just now getting a letter sent out on march 13

Jazzy March 1

Janae,

You really need to call an advocate TODAY….and they will tell you exactly what you need to fax to them to release your return within 2 weeks. So, please don’t wait any longer; let them know you have a hardship and its been since 1-30. IRS should have been completed your return or tell you what they are really reviewing. It could be anything from A-Z.

If you had any changes from your previous years filing; you were flag for a review. If you filed before you got your W-2. The amount may not have matched with your last paycheck stub. It could be minor or major…Did you file 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 tax return. If you missed any, they will not give you your 2016 until you file those. They are flagging for that reason as well.

Check the info I just gave Rachelle; and see they can answer your question as well.

Note:
The Taxpayer Bill of Rights adopted by IRS in June 2014 provides that taxpayers have the right to receive prompt, courteous, and professional assistance in their dealings with the IRS. They are to be spoken to in a way that is easily understood and any correspondence from the IRS must be clear and understandable. They have the right to speak to a supervisor whenever quality service is not received. For additional information refer to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

Hey jazzy
Okay when i talked to the irs they said the letter thats going to be sent out on march 13 is basically just saying that im under review as of right now they dont need any addtional information from me if they do end up needing any additonal information within a time frame they will send out another letter but as of now they need nothing from me……so do i still call a advocate due to them telling me they dont need any additonal information from me at the moment..and if i still need to call a advocate and say its a hardship will they ask for proof of the hardship…and if i should still call them do you have they number…the irs kept saying we dont need any addtional information from you we just sending a letter letting you know that you are under review i just dont understand why so long for the letter to be sent out and i was accepted 1/30

Janae,

Not all advocates ask for proof; Hardships can be anything, from needing your monies for food, gas, medication, eye glasses, late on any utilities, car notes, children needs.

Does not mean you have to have cut-off notices or eviction. It would help if you did have something like that in case they ask. But I would still call and ask for one to speed it up, just in case they hold up the process until the 13th. If you call advocate you will have your refund by the 13th. All you need to do is fax whatever IRS is needing; if they don’t need anything, the advocate will ask IRS to release your funds due to hardship. They can manually process it the same day, instead of resequencing you back in que…for the next DDD release. Which goes out on Monday’s to the Treasury to release the funds on Wed and Friday.

It sure won’t hurt to call….even if IRS my update you this Saturday…its better to find out on Friday what is going on exactly to ease your mind for the weekend…advocate can pull your info up and tell you on the spot.

Get ahead of the letter; I hate for you to waste 11 more days..and counting. Call tomorrow the advocate in your state or the hotline as well as IRS and request they do a 911 Request Form for an advocate. Google IRS Taxpayers Advocate for your state…sometimes it takes them 3 days to call you back; with IRS doing it, it can be shorter. But when you get them on the line; the intake rep who will assign you a case number; can tell you what they see in the system.

Let me know if you find out more than just IRS saying we are sending a letter. I see they are telling a lot of people the same info…a letter will be sent on the 13th.

Good luck….

Sorry, I don’t recall if you told me this info:

Do you still have topic 152 on the WMR? What are the codes on your “account” transcript. If I knew this information I would be able to tell you exactly why they are holding your refund. What is the message saying on the WMR now?

There is a big update on Saturday, so hopefully you will see some movement…its possible.

hey jazzy my husband filed his on feb 16th and it said return received on the feb 17th do you might know or have an idea when will his get approved

Reply

Jazzy March 3

toy,

The 17th fell on a Friday…IRS do not process returns on weekends nor holidays. E-file acceptance date does not match the IRS acceptance. The dates are always 2-4 days different than what IRS will tell you they started processing. So, technically, IRS did not even touch it until 22-24th. Let’s go with the 22nd, that being said if he had not issues at all it is possible for him to get an update in the morning. IRS is moving fast. They are processing within 4-10 business days. Tell him to see if he can view his online transcript “account” and “return”….if he can pull of the “account” and he see a code 846 he will see a DDD in the morning. Not sure how he claimed or if he claimed dependents so I can’t tell you much with the “transcript” info. 800-908-9946 don’t order hit 0 to talk to a live person.

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-return-transcript-types-and-ways-to-order-them? – order via mail on online.

Do you know your cycle date yet? Also, another way to see is check the offset line and see if anything is owed; if so, and they already deducted it; it will provide you with a DDD date.(800) 304-3107

Here is another number you can call and check…DO NOT offer the toll free refund hot line, 1-800-829-1954, as an option unless the taxpayer states they do not have a computer, or do not have internet access

If you can’t view your transcript you can call and speak to someone directly and tell them you need it for school and ask if they can tell you what the codes are on the account transcript (write them down) if they tell you. If you can order via mail…that also says your return is DONE processing if you can order BOTH. If there is any hold; then you won’t see anything tomorrow; but I will give it until next Saturday. You should have a DDD for sure by then..or something could be holding it up and we will have to figure out what…

You are still good; even if he does not get a DDD for 3-8 or 3-10. Its still pretty early. Expect a DDD on or before 3-11 for the following week. If none by then….I would be a little more concerned at that point. Ok.

Good luck and I hope this helps somewhat…

Jazzy March 3

toy, just an FYI:

If you two filed separately and followed the rules below; then your husband shouldn’t have any delays during the process of his return. IRS usually target couples filing separately for Audits:

Married taxpayers filing separately: Spouses who file separate tax returns should carefully determine who is claiming which deductions. Make sure you’re splitting the deductions that are paid jointly and not each claiming the same amount, which would result in double-counting. But it’s perfectly fine for one spouse to claim 100 percent of a deduction if the other spouse doesn’t also claim the same deduction.

Janae March 3

Hey jazzy so i contacted a advocate today they open me up a case (would being pregnant due in 8 weeks would be consider a hardship) meaning i have absolutely nothing right now for the baby…i was told i may have to show proof of hardship i have proof of pregnancy doctors letter saying when im due and ive been having complications causing me to not work untill after baby born….so however he was telling me that it most likely under review for school credit or income because i did use last check stubs…so i will be recieving a call from an advocate Wednesday he said they will give me more information and exactly what i need of why im under review if i need anything..if so they will have me to fax them the paper work…so he said its best i just gather up all my proof/documents/w2s/school paper/proof of hardship…so if they ask for either one ill already have it handy…so i guess i just sit patiently and wait on the call from an advocate…hopefully things goes in the right direction…..calling them want affect anything with the irs would it…idk first time going through this

Jazzy March 3

Janae,

First of all, Congratulations to the mother-to-be soon :-).

Second, good news; they opened you a case and a tax advocate is scheduled to call you Wed, then you are well on your way to resolving this issues and releasing your refund within 2 weeks of faxing over whatever documents that ask for.

Tax Advocates are IRS employee’s. So, when you talk to them; you are talking to IRS :-). Pregnancy with complication and under Dr. care is most definitely a hardship. So you have all the proof you need. Sound like you are ready to fax those documents off soon as you get off the phone with the advocate. Once you send it; let her know exactly when she can expect to receive your fax. That get really busy and may not look at their emails for a couple of days. But if you inform her/him that she should have it within 1 hour or by 3pm…they will be looking out for it. And that will show the urgency on your part. Once they acknowledge your fax; they will send the information to the section who is reviewing your return and they have 1 week from receipt to respond back to the Advocate; If all is good; your return will be put back in que to go out the next week; up to 2 weeks tops. They are quick and efficient…they will also give you a date they will call you back to follow up. Don’t be alarm if the date is 2-3 weeks; they do that because mostly likely between that time frame…they expect you to already have received your DDD/refund; so there will be no need for them to call back…cause they can look in the system and see you got it and close the file.

You can also, check your transcript; about a week or two after you fax your info and see if you see the code 846. Updates are on Wed and Sat mornings…of each week. Sometimes they push it thru manually; so you may see a pending deposit before you see any movement on the WMR…

So start the clock ticking at least 1 week after you faxed the documentation…I give it 2 weeks tops from that time frame….to get your refund. Good job….you made the 1st step and got a open case…and a callback…not everyone get approved for an advocate; so you are good. Hang in there and try not to stress anymore ok. You are in good hands now :-).

Good luck….keep me posted

Janae March 3

Hey jazzy i just seen your question no theres not an code no where on the wmr…theres no topic code of 152 or nothing at all just says we recieved your return and its being processed

Reply

Jazzy March 3

Janae,

You are very welcome; no code of 152 that’s ok; still check the WMR in the morning just in case you get an update prior to the advocate contacting you on Wed. Never know with the IRS :-). Just make sure you tell the advocate when to expect the faxed documentation if she request them? It is hard to get them back on the phone or for them return your call right away once you hang up with them.

I would tell her while you got her attention; you will get the fax within 1 hour and to please be looking for your fax before she leave for the day; tell her you are heading to a fax machine right after you hang up and urge her/him to please check their faxes within that time-frame you think they should have it by…and ask if they can please call you back or leave a msg to confirm receipt of faxed(documentation). After that it will be out of your hand; just have to wait until they contact you back with the results/findings.

Always follow up if you do not hear back within 7 days….first check the WMR to see if you notice any updates, or transcripts if you can pull it up online; if not call the transcript line and hit 0 to ask the rep to tell you the codes because you don’t have access to pull it up on your on. Also, I listed the refund line # you can check as well; prior to calling the advocate back for a status update. (scroll down/up) for those numbers.

Don’t stress out anymore, try to relax…..by March 17-24; if not sooner; you should have the refund.

Have a good weekend :-)

Janae, Congratulations….yeaaaaaahhhhhhhh. I am doing a happy dance for ya…lol (smile).

Wow, great news! So happy you finally got answers and soon you will have your refund. It could come sooner than later, so keep checking your bank account and WMR this weekend and next. They can manually process it as well, so the WMR may or may not even update until well after you get your refund. I know you are extremely relieved this is almost over…get ready to do that happy dance and exhale when you refund finally hit your bank account :-)

IRS, is not joke this year; they are holding up refunds for any little thing or math error. What I found out is that if ANYTHING on your return does NOT match what employers, school, health form, sent to the IRS it will be FLAGGED. If they don’t have a document yet; they will hold it until they can ask the employers to send it, instead of asking the taxpayers for it. If they don’t get any respond back from employers or can verify the information from government databases within a certain time frame; then they send out the letters….wasting all that valuable time for nothing. SMH.

So, if anyone have any major or minor changes from the last (3) years….marriage, address change, dependents changes, Health care form etc., you will be waiting….until you demand answers to release the hold. Janae, situation is a prime example…

Follow her lead and you should be able to resolve any issues relating to your return…remember hardships are not always evictions or cutoffs….it could be medical or car repairs or any extreme situation you are going thru (health) is considered “extreme”…

I am praying those who have yet to see a DDD will see one in the next update on Saturday…

Good Morning,

I filed my taxes and it was accepted around Feb. 23/24th. Last year I had an offset for my student loans, this year I have been calling the treasury offset number everyday before I filed and after to see if I am due for an offset and I keep getting a response saying that my social is not due for any offsets. I checked the WMR website over the weekend and said I was due for a direct deposit on March 1. So, this morning I check the website and I still only have two bars, it does not say my refund was sent yet. Now I am a little nervous that it may be offset or could my refund just be delayed?

Reply

Jazzy March 1

Denise,

Do you go thru a tax preparer and pre-paid entities? That could be where you refund is being held up. If it was going directly to your bank account; it should have been pending today. Can you view your transcript online? If so, what are the codes in the account one? If a bank have it, find out why or when are they going to release it to you. Lots of people have had issues with these banks…

Call this number and see where it is saying your refund is – or current refund information if the refund is not received within the time frame provided. Where’s My Refund can inform the Individual taxpayer if the IRS received the original return, and the projected date of the refund. Automated systems are not available for business taxpayers. DO NOT offer the toll free refund hot line, 1-800-829-1954,

Also, you call go to the Federal Reserve Bank – go to this website and enter the Routing Number in the middle section frbservices.org see what bank info comes up….this is where you money was last sent to.

Reminder:
Direct deposit refunds are held one week if this is a first time filer, or the first time the current last name is being used, or the taxpayer has not filed a return in the past 10 years.

2/2 4464c letter sent out, do nothing wait 60 days, I received on 2/8
2/7 we’ve received your return and it’s still processing
2/11 Path Act message, amount gone, tax year said Dec 31, 2016, tax topic 152
2/16 message changed to; we’ve received your return and it’s being processed a refund date will be provided when available, amount returned, no tax topic 152
2/25 still no DDD
No other letters have been mailed out , claimed both credits so I know they didn’t start processing until the 15th so I guess I still have time to receive a DDD before I get all worked up!

Bob February 26

WOW!!! Seems as though – the time you filed combined with those two credits – you just got caught in a world of s&@t . Bright side is that it is moving along . Bet you get a DDD 1st week of March .

Jazzy February 26

Lisa,

Did you file with your last check stub or with your actually W-2 form? The issue they are reviewing is the amount you reported does not match the W-2 they received from your employer. When they say do nothing; they can fix it themselves by contacting your employer for verification which could delay your return even further.

2nd. Claims for tax credits you made on your return. IRS is questioning the legitimacy of the dependents you are claiming and will NOT release your refund until you actually fax them documentation to prove they resided with you at least 7 months in 2016. (birth certificate, school records, lease, government assistance/w children names on it). Tax Advocate will give you a list of items to fax.

If you want them to release your refund you MUST contact an advocate ASAP, they will tell you exactly what is needed and you fax it to them, IRS has exactly 1 week to accept/reject; if all is good; they will re sequence you back into que and you will have your refund within 1-2 weeks.

Your other option will be to contact IRS in the morning and request the following on your behalf. If they complete the 911 Form you will get a call back from an advocate much quicker than calling the Advocate Hotline:

Per IRS Manual:
If during a taxpayer contact it appears that the taxpayer is experiencing economic harm, seeking help in resolving tax problems that have not been resolved through normal channels, or who believe that an IRS system or procedure is not working as it should, and you can’t resolve the taxpayer’s issue the same day, complete Form 911, Request for Taxpayer Advocate Service Assistance (And Application for Taxpayer Assistance order), and refer the taxpayer to Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS)

Can you view your transcript online; or do you have a copy of it; if so, what are the codes and the dates listed for each code?

Reply

Jazzy February 26

LIsa, sorry for the typo’s I was multi-tasking; meant they “may” be reviewing your W-2’s. What did the letter indicate they are reviewing? I meant. IRS can submit a 911 Request on your behalf if you ask them to do so. I would also contact them as well and request them open you a case. IRS request goes directly to an advocate since they actually are IRS employees; they have access to the system to pull up your return and review. I used one in 2014 and once I faxed everything I got my return in 2 weeks.

Jazzy – I tried leaving a update post but it went to another page so I’ll go this route . My WMR went to – your refund was mailed 2/24 (Friday) . I got it today 2/27 (Monday) . Hope this helps anyone who is waiting for paper check !!

Hey Bob,

Congratulations; glad you finally got it in the mail. I am surprised it came on a Monday and not Saturday. Well there goes my theory about the Post Office holding returns to delivery on Saturday’s only….guess that policy was back in the days; when people were stealing paper checks from mailboxes…lol. They are so sophisticated these days; with all this technology…hehehhehehheh…who need to stand by a mailbox doing a stake out in the hear right :-).

Well stockup on the moonshine…ok. You deserve a good drink after all this stress / drama.

Jazzy February 27

Congrats Bob, so glad it finally came. Yeahhhhhhhh!!!! Happy spending…:-)

That is great! Niceeeeeeeeeeee! So glad you were able to find your vehicle; Acura are good vehicles. I know you are so glad that process is over :-). Doesn’t it feel sooooooooo good to finally be able to do all the things you had planned? Such a relief! Life is beginning to get back to normal again without all that stress with the Path mess…lol. We got our life back…hehehehehe. I hope those who are still waiting on good news; will this upcoming week. I feel so bad for them :-(. But their time is coming soon…I pray sooner rather than later.

I left around 11’ish and didn’t get back home until 5pm, shopping and running errands and I am tired. Just want to relax and find a good movie.

I filed the 27th and still have yet to recieve mine. Still says processing. I have two little ones and just got married last summer so we filed jointly. Could that be why I haven’t heard anything ?

Reply

Jazzy February 25

Tiffany,

Yes, married/divorce changes are another reason returns or flagged; also they look at both of your returns; it could be something on either that caught there attention. Have you entered both SS number on the WMR and see if they message are the EXACT same under both names?

Have you reviewed your transcript yet? If so, look for the codes listed on the “account” transcript and then google IRS Codes…to see what they mean.

Scroll down I provided some numbers/links that will help.

Most definitely there are looking into some issues since its been 1-27 and no word or letters in the mail. You may have one today…

Also, please call an Advocate since it has been 21 days, they will tell you exactly whats the hold up and will resolve it within 2 weeks.

If you did not get an update this morning; then it could be delayed even further…see if the advocates are open today.

Keep me updated ok

Reply

TiffanyO February 25

How can I look at my account transcript? I know it originally says most won’t be deposited into accounts until the week of the 27th. So I’m sure I just need to be patient. Just getting really anxious, we really need the money. And yes I put both of our SS numbers in and they both say processing.

Reply

Jazzy February 25

Tiffany, here is the link; if you can view them online…scroll down and see the other information I provided on how to get it fax to you thru your cell phone or computer instead of waiting 5-7 days for it to be mailed.

If it said the 27th, you would have already gotten it or it would be pending in your account this morning. If it is still say processing…it hasn’t’ been released; something is holding it up…you must find out what it is or you can be waiting a long time…an Advocate is your best bet…right now!

You meant March 3rd :-). Who did you call this morning? IRS is open today? Did you see it on the WMR? Yes, it is possible for your bank to release it before the 3rd. Just start checking your account on Wed/Thur. It all depends on the bank policy. It is a good chance tho you will see it earlier.

Good luck…

FYI –

Just wanted to share this information before close of business in case anyone needed to reach the treasury or have their transcript fax before close of business:

Treasury – If you want to know if your return has been rejected or if you have a deposit at your bank. Call this number to get a Trace # to give to your bank to locate your deposit or see if it was rejected -1-800-826-9434. Press 1 then 1 again.

Transcripts: Call 800-908-9946; Press #1, Enter SS# and Address then hit 0 this will take you to a rep who will fax them to you. (Don’t submit order)

If you need to download the Fax App – Go to faxbetter.com there is no charge to setup a virtual fax number you can view from your smartphone or computer.

Hi my name is janae im new on here irs have recieved my refund on jan 30 its pass my 21 days i havent had no bars at all or no codes all it says is that they recieved my refund and it is being processed i gave them a call 3 times 3 different days and all im getting is that its under review

Reply

Jazzy February 24

Welcome, Janae

Can you view your transcript online? If so, this is where you will find out exactly why you are under review by the codes that will be listed. Indeed something is wrong since you filed and was accepted on 1/30.

Can you think or any reason you were pulled for review. Did you have any of the following:

Common Reasons Returns are pulled for Review or Full Blown Audits:

1. NEW changes this year compared to your last 3 years of filing? This will most definitely flag your return.
2. Address Change?
3. Did you file prior to receiving your W-2? (ex: did you use your last paycheck stub?) there could be a math error.
4. Educational Credit?
5. ID verification
6. Add/drop dependents?
7. Offset (owed back taxes for a prior year) which will not show up on the offset line.
8. Have you checked the offset line (800) 304-3107
9. Health Care Form (1095A) missing/not included

Keep in mind IRS can fix some of these issues without sending a letter or you having to do anything. They have access to varies databases to look up and verify most info. Can you tell me what your cycle is if you can review your transcript? Have you even tried to order them yet or view online? If you can order and view the account transcript and the return transcript; that means that are done processing; but doesn’t mean the have completed the process…

If you were accepted on 1/30/17 your cycle code should be 20170502 maybe 20170504 since efile is off by 2 days when IRS really accepts it. If you are weekly it will say 20170505.

Once I know a little more I can determine more closely what may be going on with your delay.

But I can tell you this; you can call an Advocate today and the will be able to look you up and tell you exactly whats the hold up…just tell them you have a hardship and they will help – 1-877-777-4778

There is going to be an update in the morning…check and see if you have any movement; you could be a weekly/not daily filer.

Good luck and hopefully you can reach an advocate to open a case for you. Also, you can call IRS again and tell them you are requesting a 911 Form to be submitted for an advocate to call you to help, because you have a hardship they will have to honor the request. Perhaps then you can insist they tell you if a letter is in the mail or what is the hold up…

IRS – (800) 829-0582 ext. 652

Keep me updated…and tell me what codes you found on your “account” transcript.

Hi jazzy

Yes i drop dependents this year and i do have educational/schooling credit and i had like r jobs last year so yes 1 of them i use last check stub..yeah i was told some dates will be given tomorrow and to see what it says tomorrow i also was told not to keep calling the irs because they will audit me if i keep calling dont know how true that is… How do i view my my transcript

Reply

Jazzy February 24

Janae,

That is a myth if you keep calling IRS you will be audited; you can still be audited if you NEVER called them..lol. IRS does notes each and every time you call them; so it is ok to let them know you have called several because you are concerned and worried and need answer because you need your money. Nothing wrong with that. That has nothing to do with your tax return it won’t change anything you sent in already…so you are doomed either way if IRS see something that want to review further. A system flags the return; and then IRS staff have to take a look at it; to determine if they need to do anything further before putting in back in que. So. call ALL YOU WANT…and TELL THEM HOW MANY TIMES you know you have call…at least they will know it is YOU…right…lol. That is your least problems right now….so don’t believe they myth. Ask them next to you call again :-).

Here is the link or go to IRS website and look at the choices one will say Get Transcript..you will have to answer a lot of questions if you try to get it online to view; it not then have it mailed or you can order over the phone 800-908-9946.

You can also ask the person who answer the transcript line if they can pull it up and let you know what codes are on them…tell her you need it for school. If you can download the Fax App, you can have her fax it directly to your phone as well…

Once you are able to view the “account” one; tell me the codes…

Hi jazzy

Do the wmr only give out dates on Saturdays

Reply

Jazzy February 25

Janae,

Thursdays and Saturday updates with a DDD for Wed/Fri deposits; Every Monday IRS send the Master File Tape to the Treasury to release the funds for that week.

Some may see updates on other days; but those are usually after a holiday or IRS manually release them individually; not within a full batch of ddd’s.

WMR updates daily; so always watch for new message regarding your refund; this will give you some clue if they have finish and is resequencing you back in que for the next release date…

ana February 28

i had a request for my 1095a i faxed 2 weeks ago how long dose it take?? my bar is gone and it just says We have received your tax return and it is being processed. no codes and no deposit day..

Reply

Jazzy February 28

ana, based on IRS Manual, when notices goes out and you have sent in the documents they requested; you should be put back in que. Usually this is no more than 2 re sequence cycles. Look for an update on the WMR in the morning or Friday morning…you should see some positive movement. If you can check your transcript online you will see the date that was previous there move forward or backward 1 week. They is the 1st indication that they received your faxed and is re sequencing for a release date. IRS has (2) business days to open correspondence and each section it goes to have 1 week to process or they have to go back in the system and add another week if they can’t meet that criteria…I think you will see a DDD by Saturday for next week. Keep me posted ok. Good luck!

IRS has deadlines that MUST be met. It is a process they must follow per their own IRS Manual. I read the entire manual; the words the reps tell you when you call (the script) is outlined word by word what they are suppose to tell a taxpayers…lol.

Notice Review – Review of IMF and BMF Master File notices performed on the On-Line Notice Review (OLNR)

Review of IMF and BMF Master File notices performed on the OLNR. This is an on-line computer system used to review and correct errors or update notices based on changes on the taxpayers account since the notice was generated. Notices are selected for review by the Notice Review Processing System (NRPS).
Notice Review cases should be prioritized to review refund notices prior to the Thursday (for IMF) (see note) and Thursday 1 PM (for BMF) cutoff for input of command code NOREF.

Note:
With IMF accelerated refund issuance, Notice Review can prevent the refund from being issued to the taxpayer up until Thursday 6 PM local time using procedures in IRM 3.14.1.

Correct and mail notices timely to minimize negative impact to the taxpayer. For Notice Review, timely means ALL of the following:
Closeout notice cycle on or before the Monday morning preceding the notice date.
Complete ALL adjustments affecting refunds within the current OLNR cycle. Adjustments can be completed in cycle with a posting delay code, if needed.

Note:
If an IMF adjustment is input within the guidelines for using TC 570 or NOREFP, the adjustment can be input without a posting delay code. When using the TC 570, IMF will recompute the refund amount on the day the systemic refund freeze is set to expire and issue the remaining balance. When using the NOREFP, IMF will process the NOREFP request the day of input and will recompute the account balance the next day when the transaction is being processed.

Reply

Jazzy February 24

Bob,

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.

IRS Secrets About Tax Refunds | US Tax Center
link: irs.com/articles/tax-refund-secrets or google the title:

When Are Refunds Sent?

If you’re wondering when to check for your money from your federal refund status in the mail, you should know when the IRS will send it. Generally, any paper checks issued are sent on Fridays. A truck (or two) arrives at the federal IRS building and picks all the checks issued that week. So, unless there was some special circumstance with your federal refund status, it will be sent out on Friday.

You should allow up to 5 business days after it’s been issued for delivery. If you’ve recently checked your IRS refund status and know it will be sent on Friday, wait until the following Friday before you call to ask where it is.

This goes the same for money from your IRS refund issued by direct deposit. Amounts are generally deposited to your account on Fridays. There might be a delay, though. Give your bank until the following Tuesday to deposit the money. If it still hasn’t gone through, check your federal refund status again. It may not have gone through yet at the IRS.

IRS Refund Cycle Chart

If you’d like more detailed information on your IRS refund status, check the IRS Refund Cycle Chart. It will tell you when your money will be issued based on when your return was received.

For example, say you sent your tax return in between January 20th and January 27th. You should expect a direct deposit on February 4th. A paper check would be issued a week later, February 11th.

The chart includes late filings as well. Of course, these dates are “ideal.” That means there might be unexpected delays. Always check your IRS refund status if you’re worried about your money.

Change of Address
It’s easy to notify the IRS of a change of address when you file. But what if you move after you send in your return? You might be worried that your IRS refund status will change.

Of course, if you checked on your federal refund status for the IRS to direct deposit your refund, there’s no need to worry. However, paper checks might encounter a problem. You can notify the IRS through the mail, on the phone, or online.

If you’re going through the mail, use Form 8822. You should be able to find it where you got your tax forms, like the library. If you used tax software, they may have an option for you to check. You can also recheck your IRS refund status at the IRS website.

Make sure to include your Social Security Number on all correspondence with the IRS. Also, after changing your address with the IRS, talk to your local post office. They can help make sure your check from your federal refund is sent to your new address.

Google compliants and reviews. This being going on since 2011. I would never use prepaid cards again if I was you guys. They suck and appear to be crooks.

Google Reviews Comments:
jan 28 2011. I had my tax refund direct deposited to my netspend card for the last 2 yrs and never had an issue. This year, not so lucky. I called to get the routing and account numbers from netspend. They gave me the correct routing number but left 4 digits off my account number! After sitting on hold and being transferred, they said to call the irs. Did that. I talked to 3 different people who said there was nothing they could do, that the netspend computers had a glitch and gave wrong account numbers to thousands of people! My tax refund will I guess be returned to the irs and they will send a paper check. God knows how long that will take. I find it hard to believe that a financial institution can make that kind of mistake and not fix it! All they say is, sorry for the inconvinience. I don’t want an apology, I want them to fix the problem!

My tax refund was put into the wrong account. I had gotten the account number from netspend to put on my return and then when i checked with the IRS and found my refund had been sent and it wasn’t on my card I emailed them to find out what was going on. They gave me an account number to verify that it was sent to the correct account but of course it wasn’t, but it was sent to the account that netspend provided me the account number of. I dont understand why they cant move the money from one account to another if it was their mistake, as it apparently was in several different situations atleast.

I’ve just experienced the same thing with Netspend only thing different is that my income tax return as well as my paychecks were on the card they locked my card and closed my account without my permission and i had to wait almost 2 hrs to speak with an supervisor because the customer service representatives you can tell they reading off a screen because they all answer in the same way and know nothing to answer your questions however they told me that the sent me check out last week and it was going to be here Wednesday because they expedited my check Wednesday comes no check i call them to see what was going on they tell me they just sent my check out this Tuesday and should be here this Friday which is today so I’m sitting here waiting on UPS if i receive no check then I’m contacting a lawyer and strongly recommend that nobody gets a Netspend account because it seems like they running some kind of fishy company from experience get a real bank where u can actually go walk into and discuss manners such as this in the future i know i am bad situation but good lesson taught!

Jazzy i used netspend and they couldn’t even tell me if they had sent it back yet. It was sooo frustrating. I talked to 10 different reps and pf course everytime i asked for a supervisor i was holding for 30 min plus and no one picked up. The account number is missing 2 digits and i thought it could be rectified but they were adamant that it will automatically reject. I’ll definitely try calling netspend again in the morning and see if i can get some answers!

Ray,

Go to this website and enter the routing number they gave you on your tax return; if you have more than 1 and even your own personal bank routing number…enter all routing numbers you have and see what comes up. If it is a bank, it will give you the phone number to who actually may have your refund or it just may give you the correct account number (2) digit missing…you might can search by name as well. Also, you can google the routing number as well; and the information may come up.

Go to this website Federal Reserve Bank – frbservices.org – the center section E-Payments Routing Directory put the routing number in and see what comes up. If netspend is holding your refund for (6) days; they are doing so just to earned interest on your money; crooks. Have you google the reviews on them. They probably done this to others and on purpose just to keep your money for a profit…smh.

I will be up until 10pm ….let me know what happens.

Ray, ask them if you can open up new Netspend account to transfer your funds to the correct routing number. If you already have one from last year ask if you can transfer the funds to the one you have.

1-86-NETSPEND (1-866-387-7363)
between 8AM-10PM CT, Monday through Friday and 8AM-8PM CT, Saturday and Sunday.

Good luck Ray, hopefully in the morning you will get some positive results. I hope so…

Jazzy February 23

Ray, I googled – The wrong account number was put on my form for direct deposit. (lot of different links/resources on this topic) Read a few and you will see what others did to try to fix it…

Actually you can demand Netspend to cut you a CHECK and MAIL to you directly without sending it back to IRS. Someone else did just that.

This is what came up:
If you chose to pay your TurboTax fees taken out of your refund, the funds will be returned to SBBT and they will take out another fee and mail the check. Check the status of your refurn on https://taxpayer.sbtpg.com/ – if it was rejected – you will be able to provide SBBT your information and they will mail the check to the address listed on your tax return. If you want to contact NetSpend Visa, you can call the toll-free NetSpend Customer Service Line at 1-855-646-8848.

Answer

If you paid your TurboTax fees using your credit or debit card and your refund is rejected by your bank due to incorrect routing or account numbers, it will take longer for you to receive your refund as it will be returned to the IRS and issued via paper check.

Here is the correct routing number:

Ray,

Netspend is located right here in Austin, across from our State Capitol. About 20 minutes from where I live. you want me to go over there for you in the morning and demand they give you your money right NOW…I can do it…really! I work for state government and I know some very important people in this city…high level officials. I might have to file a compliant with our OAG Consumer Division. I am an advocate for people who are done wrong. I get results. I have read some horror stories when I google; they do this to a lot of people and it needs to be addressed and STOP. I need to bring these complaints to the attention of our Legislators sine they are now in session:

Netspend
Address: Austin, TX
Phone: (866) 387-7363

If you don’t get results tomorrow; just let me know I will take matters in my own hand. I will make sure they don’t keep getting away with treating their customers this way….so wrong. I won’t stand for it.

I got your back….ok.

Sleep well and know I am on your side.

Now for real I am going to bed now…just been googling about Netspend…smh

Ray February 24

Ok jazzy I’ve called every number u listed and that i could find. I asked about them cutting a check and was told no. The best they can do for me is to reject my direct deposit sooner than the 6 business days. So now i guess i need to speak with turbo tax and get a tracking number for my refund so they can send it back today. And hope and pray that the check comes sooner than later!… Ive used netspend for payroll in the past and never had any issues, but this is truly a lesson learned. I was recently laid off from my job in January and this whole ordeal is going to put me behind even more now. Ill have to look on the bright side and find the good in this situation to keep my sanity! But thank you so much jazzy for taking time out ur day to help me i really APPRECIATE that!

Jazzy February 24

Good job Ray, ask the preparer if they can cut you a check. They can do it as well once you tell them what happened. If not, hope they will reject it TODAY, so the clock start immediately.

So, sorry to hear about your job loss; hope this get resolve right on time before it really set you back and do harm to your finances.

Call and advocate; and the can put a rush and you will have it back within 6 days for mailing. Trust me, the advocate can speed up the delay due to your hardships.

Please call and tell them your situation…ok. By the time someone return your call the check will have been rejected and showing back up in the IRS system. That should only take 1 business day, thru wire rejection back into the treasury account…

But your preprarer can HELP you….and cut that check…so please beg them first, if all fail…Advocate are you best friend…right about now.

Good luck my friend, I will you all the best…

Jazzy February 23

My DDD came on a Friday, so I had 3 day weekend to spend it all. If it came this week; I would be in the same position you are, too busy to spend it. Yep, the weekend is upon us; so you will have a good one. Love your philosophy, and so true…I did purchase that vehicle and it was well worth the entire check. Just the thought of no payments is awesome.

I got all my bills caught up to one month; because I really feel like the EIC/ACTC will be eliminated and the Head of House exemption. No huge refunds anymore. All good things do eventually comes to an end…smh.

Even if we are lucky to get one more tax year in; I promise you this, no matter how tempted I am; I will NOT file during the test batches run; I may not even file in the 1st week; it is safest to file at least 2-3 weeks after the mad rush; and you will still get your refund within 10-14 days. They really scrutinize those earlier and 1st week of opening day returns.

Especially if they haven’t received all the required documents from the employer’s, such as W-2, health forms, etc.,

Debra, you are very welcome. Based on what I am reading, this may be the last year for millions of us. Trump wants his tax plan implemented in time for the 2018 Tax Year. Most taxpayers will only have to fill out a (1) page form.

Excerpt:
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Trump administration is aiming to have a tax reform plan passed through both the House and the Senate by the August recess.

“We are committed to passing tax reform,” Mnuchin said. “It will be very significant.”“We want to get [tax reform] done by the August recess,” Mnuchin added.

Reply

Jazzy February 23

donniece,

I think you already know that is a bad sign. If you can view your transcript; I bet it have some review codes or freeze code 570, 971 for notice sent in mail.

Have you tried to call them yet? Don’t let them tell you to just wait for the letter; if they don’t give you an answer, call an Advocate immediately, they can actually pull up your return and tell you WHY the delay and what you need to fax to her/him to resolve it. They actually works for the IRS and are housed in their bldgs…Once they fax anything you send to them IRS has 1 week to respond back; if they accept the documents, you will be resequence back and have your refund with 2 weeks tops.

Get on that phone in the morning, even if it hasn’t been 21 days…but since it will be for you; you good.

It just maybe you need to do an ID verification. I read a variety of issues why others were pulled for review. So, it could be anything…

Good luck….hope you get it resolved quickly…keep me posted.

Just found out today that my direct deposit was sent back to irs because my bank account number was wrong.ughh..anyone knows the turn around time for when the irs will issue me a check?

Reply

Jazzy February 23

Ray,
I hate you missed my post where I was telling everyone to please check their return and bank account to see if it was correct and if not to please call your bank and informed them. They would have allowed you to STOP the rejection and corrected it. That is a very common error…

But it shouldn’t take no more than 10-14 days the most. If your bank sent it right back; IRS will turn around an mail it. Hope it will be a much shorter wait than that.

Try to contact them anyways and let them know what happen; they will note your file and give you an apprx. time-frame. Which of course they always will give you a date that reflects the worse case scenario. Like they do with DDD, never the date it states..well for most.

I think you can still get a live rep within 10-15 at this number (800) 829-0582 ext. 652

Good luck…keep me posted ok

Reply

Ray February 23

Yea it was an error on my banks behave they provided me the wrong number so i have to pay for their mistake. I contacted the irs and was given a time frame of 4 weeks after the bank rejects it. My bank also stated it could take them up to 6 business days to send the rejection back. Im so over this tax season it has truly been a nightmare. Thanks for the feed back jazzy!

Reply

Jazzy February 23

Ray,

If the bank has NOT sent it back yet; you can intercept that and fix it. Why aren’t they allowing you do correct the error right now to release the funds. It is not law that says they have to reject and send back; that is totally up to the banks not IRS…I would be begging them like crazy to allow me to do whatever to get it resolve before they send back. Well if they hold it for (6) days then they are going to delay you about 4 weeks…smh.

See if you can talk to a supervisor or corporate office and STOP them from sending it back..at least try it may just work if you talk to the right person in charge. I hate to see you have to thru more drama; when it is so unnecessary. The bank still got the refund in their possession. My bank would give me time…but it all depends on the bank tho.

Jazzy February 23

Nothing much going on…I am going back to playing my fantasy basketball since they are back playing tonight after the all-star game; and setting up my lineup for start of the baseball season coming up.

My time is limited anyways since the Legislature are in session and they are keeping me busy during working hours. Don’t have a lot of extra time anymore; so the timing was perfect that most if not all has gotten that refund. I am pretty sure by tomorrow if any is still waiting; it is most likely due to the bank rejection the deposit due to wrong account number, address did not match the return; ID verification or IRS reversed the transaction for further review; so not much anyone can do at this point but try to track it down…

So, I waited all day yesterday for my return to say “sent” or for my account to be updated and finally at midnight, the IRS website said it was Sent! Well, here it is 6 am and my prepaid visa card has still not be uploaded. I’ve called and they show no pending deposits. I’ve checked my return and every single number is correct on the routing number and account number. I am truly freaking out! I have no idea what else to do! Please help!

Reply

Jazzy February 24

Tegan, give me a little more to go on: Where was it going? When were your DDD date? Did you check both banks and prepaid card? Did you check the Federal Reserve Bank website to see where your funds were wired? Just put in the routing number and call that bank. Scroll down to get that info. You know some banks are Freezing the refunds if you did not update your address or anything you did with IRS and them; but you did not update the info with them; or something does not match; they are holding. Have you google reviews to get some insight…TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY to avoid a lengthy delay. You can ask them to trace where your money is….here is IRS # to call if you need to reach them for answers: (800) 829-0582 ext. 652. Wow, this is more common than I thought…smh. Good luck and keep me updated ok.

I read a comment that said (forgot the bank) that 40,000 refunds were sent via check instead of going on their card by mistakes…that is why YOU will not see any update on the card. You may need to ask if they cut you a check and it is in the mail instead by error…

Do any of these stories apply to your situation:

So, my dumb ass, ordered another Netspend card when I filed my taxes, but had my refund deposited to the card I had last year. So, for shits and giggles (also because there was no movement on my new card) I check my old account, and LOW AND BEHOLD my dang on refund was deposited on the 20th at 11:51 pm. Filed 2/1 accepted 2/6 DDD 2/23 did 2/20……I feel so stupid. Oh yeah no fees.

Mine was 2-22, checked WMR at 12:15 last night and updated to 3 bars. Checked the bank, nothing. When I woke up this morning, nothing. Called the IRS, apparently when I went to the bank to get my account number when I filed my taxes, they gave me the wrong account number. It was completely and totally different than mine, not a single digit matched but the first five, and at my branch, everyone has the same first five. Called my bank, gave them the account number on my taxes and my actual account number and they found it and sent it back to the IRS. Now I have to wait 3-8 weeks to get my paper return. So if you haven’t gotten yours yet, I strongly urge you to contact the IRS right away. I’m fortunate with my bank that they were so quick to act and that they actually took the money back and sent it back the same day. Most banks won’t do this ESPECIALLY is there isn’t enough funds to take the money back, some even have to be supeanaed by the IRS to have them send a trace on it, and even then they don’t guarantee the bank will send the money back.

Yesterday I called the emerald card to check my account and it stated that the IRS had approved my return and that I had a pending deposit.. I called back yesterday evening to see why it had not posted yet and the recording was gone and the people keep hanging up on me. I check with the IRS website and it shows 3 bars and states that the bank has my money but they keep saying that they do not see a ending deposit and no one will help me because I did not do my taxes with hrb but I used tt

Mmmmmmmaaaannnnnn i just wanna share what i went through to get my money maybe this could help someone: so i filed on 1/22 was accepted on 1/23 everything was ok and going fine until around the first week of february after i got the path message which was feb 4th the next week i found out my bank account which the refund was going to is closed im like heated with TD because they didnt call me to let me it was frozen at first but when i went to go and resolve the situation it was officially closed and i had to open a new account with them so now thinking that i would see a check i didnt bother to ask any questions until i got and update on the the 16th to we received your return and it is being processed then on the 18th i got my DDD of 2/23 so thats when i started calling TD to let them know i have a deposit coming to see if it could possibly be rerouted to my new account they said yea sure no problem long story short they couldn’t because the check that hit my closed account was in my husband’s name even though we filed a joint return he was the primary so since he wasnt on my account they couldn’t reroute it i almost gave up and waited for it to bounce back and then wait for a check until my husband mentions to me to ask them a question and that turned into me and hubby going into a TD branch and as of right now im a thousandaire!!!!!!!

Jazzy February 23

Hard Times; now that is just crazy. Sorry you are dealing with this: Here is a few tips:

Bofi federal 18772478002…. For emerald card users…

Did you got the the Federal Reserve website and look up the routing number? frbservices.org

Did you call the treasury department directly?

U.S. Treasury for Payments:

Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20220

General Information: (202) 622-2000
Fax: (202) 622-6415
Hours: Mon-Fri 8:00am – 5:00pm

FB Comment:
look at your online return, it states that the 3rd party bank that your account refund goes to (before they take out fees) is BofI bank based in San Diego, California. You can find your refund account number & the routing number 101089724 located on your return. Mine says its a checking account. The bank does not open until 8am PST, & since HRB is not being very forthcoming with information, I suggest you call this bank to find out if the return funds have at lease been released, as they are the 3rd party processor for HRB fees. From this acct, the remaining funds should then be released to your ACH or Emerald i assume. Since the acct # & routing # are both found on your return, this seems like the best place to start. I will be calling them in 2 hours myself. The number is (877)247-8002. Hopefully they can provide us with some answers. Good luck, everyone! Hope this helps. Have a great day!

Jazzy February 23

Hard Times, if that don’t get you closer to where your money is; keep calling this number over and over and ask for a supervisor to locate your money and see how many different answers you get from ALL of them.

Also contact a tax advocate for hardship (directly) and tell IRS to enter a 911 FORM on your behalf to an advocate.

taxpayeradvocate.irs.gov/contact-us website it was let you enter our state or

1-877-777-4778
You can also call the Taxpayer Advocate Service toll-free at 1-877-777-4778, or fill out Form 911, Request for Taxpayer Advocate Service Assistance, and fax or mail it to the address above.Dec 23, 2016

Reply

Jazzy February 23

Courtney, you are not alone; a lot of people are in the same boat you are; I compiled a few comments I google to see if others were experiencing the same thing Hard Times mentioned earlier now you. I am sure I could post 100’s of more; but these should paint the picture of the worries many as yourself is experiencing.

1. Good morning. I’m so sad to see people with 2/22 and 2/23 DDDs that still haven’t received their refund. If you haven’t already here are some things you can check: 1. If you had fees taken out, check with the middleman bank (SBBT, Republic, Bofi, etc) that they received your refund and sent it to your personal account. 2. Verify that your personal account information is correct on you return. 3. If filed jointly make sure both names are on your bank account/pre-paid card as this can sometimes cause your refund to be held or rejected. 4. If you are using a pre-paid card for the first time and were using a middleman bank, some people have had their refund not deposited because the middleman bank does test deposits to ensure the account is active and correct. If your card wasn’t activated at the time they tried it is possible that they did not attempt to deposit your refund and could be sending you a check. 5. If you have access to you transcripts online then you can check to see if their were any holds, offsets or freezes on your account which could have delayed or taken your refund.

2. You can try contacting TPG to get the ACH trace number. Your bank can then use that to track it and see where it is or what happened.

3. So our refund was pending in our bank account to be available this morning, and this morning it just disappeared instead. Apparently the IRS reversed it because my husbands name was not on the account. Now I guess I have to wait until they receive it back and issue a paper check.Has anyone dealt with this in the past and if so how long did it take to receive the paper check?

4. just got off the phone with Jackson Hewitt. I demanded to speak with a supervisor and after waiting 15 minutes I finally got one. They’re, apparently, clueless as to what’s taking so long. She insisted that the system is still showing that it hasn’t been sent by the IRS yet and even though SBBT is showing paid and sent they aren’t showing anything.

5. I was supposed to get it yesterday. She was rude and said it’s only been 1 day. I’ve NEVER gone beyond my ddd before. ugh!I’m ticked, I’m upset, this is so frustrating!!! I’m never using Jackson Hewitt again!!Thank you for letting me vent…

6. TPG says they sent the funds to a greendot card yesterday but I’m not seeing anything and Serve says they don’t have anything online. The phone line is over a 30 min wait to even speak to a rep so it’s either amex serve or JH I’m thinking. Either way…it’s irritating

7. I’m wondering if there is some problem with tpg sending funds to JH… I’m getting a check, tpg supposedly told JH yesterday to cut me a check and JH claims to still not have it…..all I know is I’m never filing with them again

8. can I please have the number you called for treasury I still have not received my funds either.

9. I’m also an unhappy customers of jackson Hewitt. Never again it’s a bunch of bs

If I find some positive comments; that shows results and movements I will share.

Good luck and hang in there ok…

HRB – If anyone went threw H&R block and you got an email stating that your money on its way, your refund should be loaded to your emerald card by 10am today if you live in the eastern time it will be on your card between 1pm-2pm today

courtney February 23

Yes i spoke with TPG and they stated that it was sent to my bank yesterday but still no show- bank of america stated that they had nothing pending so i am freaking out…. i just hate the the IRS says one thing (which should be final word, period) and then something totally opposite happens… like why not say we sent it to Santa Barbara Bank yesterday and will be deposited on friday or whatever- ugh AGGRAVATION at its finest, especially when we have been waiting longer to begin with!

Help...... February 23

DDD of 2/23 still nothing as well

Reply

Jazzy February 23

Help, have you had any luck thus far?

How about you Hard Times?

Lucy and Brown Eyes, hoping you all update us soon…

Worried about you guys after reading these comments; it looks like IRS HALTED DDD after the fact and placed a lot of people back under review and sent out letters…even after they went to WMR APPROVED..status. Wow, IRS is no joke…smh.

COMMENTS:

1. I was an early filer they accepted my refund the 23rd. i had two bars up until feb 2nd. but than my bars disappeared and it went to processing and 152, than i got a letter in the mail 4883c to verify who i am. and it did that on the 14th. I called irs today and they told me they have restarted the process over and check back march 3rd. So i supper upset!

2. There’s a bunch of others going through the same thing. Many have been told their return was pulled for review. Have you called the IRS to see what is going on with it?

3. Branden: I’m not sure, but I know from many years here (even as just a user) that they like to throw out arbitrary dates for worst case scenarios.

4. Aj-waiting-5564c letter – So just got phone with IRS after 1 hour and 37 mins .. spoke to Mr. Richi — called the collection line and acted stupid. He said not to worry about wmr status, bars or anything, he said this year is caos because the are investigating each and every return that has path law for credits. He said no updates would even go into effect online due to the law until. Between the 15th – 27th for the first filers. So hang in tight guys/gals there are more of us in this boat than those who actually received their refunds.

Jazzy February 23

Lucy, have you got your refund yet? Haven’t heard from you, the status. Let me know ok.

Jazzy February 23

Got to get to work, but I will check in off and on to answer any questions that haven’t been answered. This group is awesome and I am sure you will get an answer from them as well.

Good luck to those who are still pending; If the DDD say today; there should be no reason the bank should delay you until tomorrow. That would be weird and if they do I would never use that bank again. They are just trying keep your monies as long as they can to get that interest…crooks.

Have a good day….will keep checking in throughout the day.

Please plan carefully for next year; there my be no EIC/ACTC Just an FYI

The Trump Tax Plan: A Simpler Tax Code For All Americans

When the income tax was first introduced, just one percent of Americans had to pay it. It was never intended as a tax most Americans would pay. The Trump plan eliminates the income tax for over 73 million households. 42 million households that currently file complex forms to determine they don’t owe any income taxes will now file a one page form saving them time, stress, uncertainty and an average of $110 in preparation costs. Over 31 million households get the same simplification and keep on average nearly $1,000 of their hard-earned money.

Trump would also eliminate the following:

Head of Household filing status. That affects single-parent families who would pay more taxes under Single status.
Personal exemptions. That affects families of school-age children who lose a $4,000 exemption for each child.

Child and Elder Care Deductions

Allow parents to deduct the average cost of child care and eldercare expenses.The deduction is not available for those earning $250,000 Single/$500,000 Married-Joint.

Children must be under age 13. Limited to 4 children. Deduction includes expenses of paid and unpaid caregivers.
Up to $2,000 can be deposited tax-free into a Dependent Care Savings Account (DCSA). It allows earnings to grow tax-free to pay for the child’s education at age 18.

Taxpayers eligible for Earned Income Tax Credit receive a rebate. They can use that rebate for the DCSA. For more detail on this, see Donald Trump Tax Plan.Please plan carefully for next year; there my be no EIC/ACTC Just an FYI

Lift your chin, and stay strong till the end. Always keep hope alive and faith will be your guide.

Hard times did you check the website of stpg. I checked there and said that my funds had been released and then when I called the number it say that they didn’t receive it yet so check the website sometimes it updates faster then the phone line info. It’s coming praying for all of you check make sure you bank account info is right and or your card number.

I’ve been following you guys for the last week and a half but didn’t bother to comment because everyone was in the same boat and for the most part everyone ask the same questions but I have been following Jazzy and everyone basically to ease my mind and wait it out. My question this morning is with everyone who got a DDD date of 2/23/2017 did all your bars on WMR move to fully orange before you saw it in your account pick? I am supposed to pick up my check from my tax preparer so would it show up in his account because I didn’t do direct deposit, so my question again is did everyone’s bars on WMR all highlight as fully orange? I still have two bars but no third one but my DDD is scheduled for today????

Deposit…but thru it all we bonded and most if not all will be like Tam/Kim said Friends 4 life…going miss you guys! Now, you all go out there and grow that economy….empty those shopping carts, take care of the nagging bills, buy that car you needed, take your family out to lunch….do whatever you had planned for your refund your burden has lifted and it is time to exhale and enjoy life without the worries…Good luck and I pray that God will see you thru any other obstacles that may cross your path….When you come to that Fork in the Road, always take the shortest path traveled to get you to your destination…goodbye to you until next year…(I hope)…:-).

Reply

Jazzy February 23

Tiffany, the bars haven’t moved to SENT probably for any of us; even those we have already gotten their refunds last week. That may or not ever happen.

You have today’s date; so I would not panic just yet, because the morning is still young and the day is long. Who do you go thru..Did you have fees or is it going directly to your bank/credit union. This could play a major part in the delay.

Give me a little more info and I will research to see what could be causing your delay. Did you go to the frbservices.org website and put in the routing number on your tax return to see if the bank you used is still showing up; or the information in your personal account…this will give you some insight.

Also, google the questions Is anyone still waiting from _________ the bank. See if any links come up. Also, look at reviews for that bank and see what others are saying about their services…

I think we you will see your refund by noon today…or sooner.

Hang in there ok….we are with you.

Tammy, so sorry to hear about your dog major surgery; I pray you don’t have to reschedule or that they will allow you to pay the deposit at a later day. Just let them see that it is on its way or write them a post dated check until you see the funds in the account. Do whatever means necessary for your pet and God will take care of the rest…

You and your dog are in my prayers and I pray for a speedy recovery. I hope God answers our prayers and your refund hit that bank right on time….now that would be awesome and by the Grace of God.

God Bless

If nothing tonight or in the morning; I will be calling IRS just to be 100% sure it is not on their end…but instead the bank…please keep me posted. Of course I will be helping in anyway to see if we can research the delay…

Hang in there, this better end by tomorrow…I am getting pissed myself; no reason you all don’t have that refund. SMH.

Hi to those of you who still remain to get there refunds. I know it’s tough, the wait is long and hard! Don’t we all know. But, your wait is almost over. It’s so close! Positive vibes for you all that the rest of you see some action. Sbtpg updated my account this morning, but, still don’t see anything at the bank yet. But, it’s on its way. And so is yours, so be patient, and positive as hard as it may be. Maybe do a little window shopping or actual shopping like Nicole is doing to pass the time. Hey Nicole, I was doing the same thing lol. I have plenty just sitting in carts ready to go, just waiting for that deposit to hit my account. Shopping eases the mind a little bit. Lol. Passes the time. Hang in there Tam, Nicole, and everyone else who hasn’t gotten your updates yet. It’s coming! It’s so close! I will be in and out today sto see how things are going for you all. Best of luck! Wishing it happens for you all today! Enjoy your day in the mean time!

God is good…and right on TIME. So happy for you all; I hope throughout this experience as a whole, there were a lot of lessons learn for us all to make major changes in preparation for what is to come next Tax season. But thru the bad experience and rocky Path, there were good; God brought us together and we all met at the crossroad; street named (FORUM) and Andy (Author) was our GUIDE thru this journey; by giving us this platform. Today, most will say goodbye and travel on another path with their family, friends and love ones. I wish you all good health, prosperity and love. Keep God in your life thru these trouble times we may face ahead and He will carry you; if you can’t!

Count your blessings no matter how large or small. Please consider paying it forward. If you can even spare $1 or $100 donate to charity, homeless (burger), pay someone’s coffee, if you see someone at the grocery store, putting items back, offer to pay the difference the dividens you will make will be 10 fold more. Remember God don’t judge us by the size of the amount you can give; but by the size of your HEART for GIVING.

Thank you ALL for making this Forum successful. You are are the best group because you were respectful, kind, compassionate and caring to ALL. Not one single (unkind) word was spoken…wow I am blown away and so grateful to be part of this Forum.

Enjoy your off season; hope we will all meet again for our TAX SEASON ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!

LOVE YOU GUYS

P.S. Congratulations to anyone else that received the good news.

Anne February 21

Kim, Nykky, Nicole, Tam, abeach250- Can you guys help me out. Lol. I am just a little confused. Are Green Dot Bank and Sbtpg the same? On my tax papers on one page it lists green dot bank to be handling my refund, and I should be getting an email from them, ( I haven’t received an email). And it states that my refund will directly go into my bank account. On another page it lists both. So I am confused as to where I should be looking for it? Lol or when I will receive it, I have a ddd of 2/23 so not totally worried at this point. Just curious more then anything. I have no other routing numbers on my papers stating that it will go to one of these places first, it’s just my bank/credit union. But, it does say that my fees were taken out and Green Dot Bank will be handling it. Just looking for help. I am also confused about the frbservices sight and how to read I guess. It only lists my bank, but, not any accounts. Someone please help. I would greatly appreciate it, as I have not seen any movement at all anywhere. If it is directly deposited from IRS, do they ever release funds earlier then the date they give you? Or what about green dot or sbtpg do they release earlier? Just curious.

Reply

Tam February 22

Anne

Don’t worry it’s always best to check both green dots is the bank that will collect your fees and then hit your credit union so if you check you credit union and they don’t have anything go back and check green dot to see if the fees were made. But I think since we all have DDD for 2/23 that were not going to see anything until later in the day tomorrow due to the holiday I don’t think we are going to receive it earlier for some will see pending deposits but some banks are slower than others like mine Chase but the credit union should show pending tomorrow.

Hi all. I checked the sbtpg site. And at the top it says in the blue box that my refund hasn’t been received BUT below that it says Refund Status:
Amount received by tpg: then my rwfund amount. Anyone know why the conflicting info? And do you think it means I’ll get the deposit soon? My ddd is 23rd.

Anne February 21

Jazzy- do you or does anyone know? Are green dot bank and sbtpg the same? On one section in my tax papers it says Green Dot Bank will be handling the transaction, and I should receive an email from them. I never got an email. It also states that my tax refund would be directly deposited into my account. And lists my bank info. In another portion of my papers it lists green dot bank, and sbtpg. I am so confused. Also if they aren’t the same? How do I get a hold of green dot bank. All I can find info on is signing up for a prepaid card. And I don’t need a prepaid card. Someone please help!!! Lol

Nicole February 21

Jazzy to I just checked that and it showed a wire was sent Friday and today what does that mean on the Federal reserve

Reply

Jazzy February 21

Nicole,

I would think it means IRS sent the Treasury your FULL refund; then the bank intercepted with a routing number for the treasure to wire in directly to them which would be (2) transactions. Which most likely happened on Friday…IRS sent a lot of refunds that day and the 2nd one is probably then one that is issued to the bank and you should see a deposit tonight. I think that is YOUR refund about to hit your bank or theirs…good sign!

Excerpts:
The Fedwire Funds Service is a real-time, gross settlement system. Each transaction is processed individually and settled upon receipt via a highly secure electronic network. Settlement of funds is immediate, final and irrevocable. (See Operating Circular 6 for specific terms and conditions.)

The Fedwire Funds Service consistently exceeds availability standards and operates 21.5 hours each business day from 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the preceding calendar day to 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

Anne February 21

Jazzy- I have a question for you. I finally logged in to the federal reserve sight. It lists my Credit union, and info, and then there is an
office code: 0
Record type code:1
New routing number: Not Applicable
Institution status code:1

And then lists servicing FRB number.

What does all this mean? I am lost. Lol. Have they released my funds yet? Or did I go into the wrong place?
Appreciate your help.

Reply

Anne February 21

Jazzy- I did file through turbo tax, and had my fees taken out of my refund. Which I know delays it. But, I don’t see that bank name on the federal reserve sight at all. Just mine. And on the WMR it still says I’m approved that hasn’t changed at all. Well not yet anyways. My ddd is 2/23. And I am not to worried yet. Just anxious and curious. Lol. Thank you for your help it’s so much appreciated!!

Reply

Jazzy February 21

Anne, are you using a prepaid card? If so, they had to give you a temporary routing number; then after they took your fees they will forward to your bank…

So see if you can find that routing number…somewhere when you filed and submitted to IRS. If not, then it means IRS will send it directly to you.

Somehow they had to attached some authorization form to let IRS know you owed fees to them first…maybe others can explain how their work. I am not really very knowledgeable of this process. But if there was a middleman in this…their has to be a way they get their money before you do…uhmmmmmm (puzzled). HELP, someone..lol.

Reply

Anne February 21

Jazzy- on all my paperwork I only see my account number and rounding numbers. I didn’t use a pay card, I used my Credit Union. I will have to investigate further. Lol. On the first page that printed it lists a balance/refund due, and it states my original refund, and then the refund after my fees were taken out, and then it lists my bank info. I am so confused. Lol. But, like I said I am just curious. But, now I will have to investigate further. I will keep you posted.

Reply

Jazzy February 21

Anne, I wonder how do they get their fees? uhmmmmm must be a step we are missing between them and IRS and when you submitted the amount of your total refund to IRS. How would the Treasury now to subtract the fees and who to send them too and then give you the difference.

This is a new mystery even for me…lol. I am sure the others can explain how this work. Well, it looks like you should just be checking your bank account…to see if it is less the fees; then somehow they got it.

Guess see when your refund is deposited if it came straight from IRS and not a 3rd party release. Mines indicated it was directly from the IRS…because I did it myself with no fees/middleman or nothing…uhmmmmm.

Let me know how this turns out…lol. I am sure we are missing something…ask others how are do the process works for them when they owe fees…maybe we can get some insight on how yours will work…

Maybe they see the bank who they owe fees (routing number)…????

Jazzy February 21

Anne, that Record type 1, I think was the one that changed when my deposit was pending. I am going to see if I can find out exactly what that means…it could be 1 transaction wired to that routing #. Look for the list of banks I posted it will tell you the times each bank releases funds overnight.

Not 100% sure…it did change for me. So, I am thinking you may have a wire transaction pending. The reserve do process at 9pm est and a lot of releases were hitting people cards/banks.

I will post if I can figure out exactly how to understand what exactly does that mean. ok. Let me do some homework..lol.

That is good news you no longer see Bancrop this morning; that could only mean one thing; the money has moved from the bank and is in route to you. That transaction has been completed, so it remove the entry.

amber, that is the bank your refund it going to so they can take their fees…they are rerouting your refund to them, you authorized the bank to do so on your behalf…then they will put it on the prepaid card when they are done collecting their monies…the middleman is causing your delay, and getting interest on your refund as long as they can.

Look for my post that state HOW IT WORKS…it broke it down step by step the process…scroll thru the post; I posted a lot of information that would explain how it all works…good info.

Saya, so sorry these delays altered your family plans and I know you all could have really used the break and the kids would have enjoyed that a lot.

The year can’t end fast enough for a lot of people that are still in limbo. Geez, smh.

Hang in there, it better be there by the morning or before close of business…this positive and keep the faith. We almost there…I pray we are (sigh)

Saya February 21

Thank you Jazzy,

I guess it is just not may turn :D
I am being positive and hopping that I will be able to see it by tomorrow. Just been a very long and rocky journey for me, and I am pretty sure for some off us. All of us.
Thank you for praying for us. I know it will end soon. And I realize that my time is not His time :)
Thank you again for being so kind to all of us, Jazzy.

All, this is the reason it is taking so long because too many banks hands are processing your money. Next year, pay fees upfront then I guarantee you will get it sooner than later. This is just crazy and I know they have your money.

FB Comment:
So I just got off the phone with sbtpg and he said that they use a bank called sevista to put our fees in then they release wthhh why are there hella banks this is wild I’m finna call sevista right now

I want my check man, they took they fees where’s my money!!!!

I WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER DEAL WITH GREENDOT AGAIN AFTER THIS YEAR

Try to call chase bank. I talked to them earlier and she told me mine is there already. It will be posted around midnight-early morning tom. DD: 2/22

I got mine just posted ddd 2/22 rushcard

Maybe I have to wait until tomorrow evening since my DDD is 2/23 to see anything the people that got there’s is 2/22 people. So all of us that have 2/23 our turn is coming tomorrow around this time hopefully praying.

Hi Tam,

I was thinking about you earlier; wondering where you were…lol. It’s driving awesome in this 78 weather we been having here…got the sun roof open and music blasting. Now I just need to take a long trip in it…can’t wait.

No word on your refund yet? Tonda you either?

Reply

Tonda February 21

Jazzy I didn’t know that you got your car already. What did you wind up getting? No still nothing. I called SB and they still said they haven’t received it yet. I usually always get my money before the date. I tried green dot this year thinking I’ll get it earlier but I will never use it again.

Reply

Jazzy February 21

Tonda, yeah I am reading some horror comments about these banks ugh. I got a 2014 Nissan Altima, love it.

I am praying there will be deposit by midnight or in the morning. I was shocked to read where on Saturday, some had DDD then on Sunday, it went back to “we are processing …..their DDD was pulled back and they were put under review. That is why I can’t wait to see you all get that refund….making me nervous. Hope and praying no one have any issues that cause any additional delays or rejections. Keep me posted.

A whole lot of people are getting those letters mostly the early filers, and those who claimed kids that were questionable. IRS is not playing this year at all…

Hey when you hit the road for a road trip you better stop in Atlanta I owe you lunch! But update nothing at all Chase stated nothing pending and nothing showing for 2/23 called JH to see if my feed were paid they stated nothing had been sent to them either also told me that there fees come out automatically so it shouldn’t hold up my money in my bank. That’s why I hate Chase we I get my payroll check it never shows pending to the day I get my direct deposit. I’m so sad and frustrated they sold the car I wanted they wouldn’t hold it any further now the next is going to be sold if I don’t get my money by Thursday. But I’m blessed I guess it wasn’t meant for me to get that vehicle happy for everyone else but I want mine too. How are you doing?

Reply

Jazzy February 21

Tam, you got it. I most definitely will look you up if I head your way. I came thru Atl about 5 years ago with a friend who was recording a track. Atl is the place to be for music industry. Beautiful city….especially the city sky view when you enter Atl. If you come to Austin…its reciprocal :-).

So sorry to hear your car was sold now that’s a bummer. Well a better one is probably right down the road; with your name on it.

Tomorrow you claim it, because your money better be in that bank account. Can’t wait to read all those happy posts with MY REFUND CAME…YEAHHHHHHHH.

I am going to say a little prayer for you guys…

So there is nothing at all about receiving or expecting the amount of your return? If this is the case, I do know the system was down for them earlier which may have caused some issues of them updating. However those that had fees withheld that was done prior of issue are being sent out. They are still processing refunds and will be receiving more from the federal reserve. Sbbt is open til 6pm on weekdays pst.

On my wmr it has been on the approved all day, even now. My ddd is 2/22. I pray yours come in today or tomorrow for you but your wmr sounds like how mine is now. Keep me posted ok

abeach250- I’m thinking since we both have the date 2/23 we should see movement soon, either tonight or in the morning. It’s so frustrating though isn’t playing this waiting game? I haven’t seen any movement either. I have hope though, but, i think the majority of people who got theirs today had a ddd of 2/22. So be patient with me,(it’s so hard though, I know.) and let’s do the Happy Dance for the ones who got there refunds today!

it had processing return with topic 152 for a while then check today the bars disappeared .

Jazzy February 21

Hi Chocolate,

Have you been able to order your transcript? The account one? Since you still have the Topic 152 that is a good sign. Do you know if you have any offset? Have you call the number (800) 304-3107.

That can mean a lot of things:

1. They are updating
2. You could be resequenced
3. Under a Review
4. Need to verify ID

There is an update on Wednesday so you could be getting your DDD tomorrow or Saturday if you are weekly. I need to know your cycle code on the account transcript…

What all did you file EIC/ACTC…did you have any new changes within the last (3) years? If so, you will be pulled for a review.

Does any of that applies to YOU?

Per the IRS today – The Tuesday after Presidents Day marks the single busiest day of the year for telephone calls and visits to the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS anticipates a high volume of calls today. At peak times, the IRS expects to field thousands of calls per hour.

Where’s My Refund? has been updated for those refunds containing the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit that had been held by law. Barring other issues, taxpayers should see those refunds in their financial accounts beginning the week of Feb. 27.

Just a reminder that “Where’s My Refund?” is updated once daily so checking it multiple times per day will not produce new or different results. To use “Where’s My Refund?”, taxpayers need their Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, filing status (single, married filing jointly, etc.) and the exact amount of the refund claimed.

Keep me posted and I will do the same and dd the 22nd

Reply

Anne February 21

Alexusb- be patient their website and phones are all down. But, they said they are still processing refunds. Well for sbtpg anyways. I haven’t seen any movement at all, not even a pending at my credit union. But, my date is 2/23, so won’t really worry until Thursday. Although it is frustrating. Hang in there. Hopefully everything is correct. Did you check on your paper work to make sure your account is correct? And call your bank to make sure you have the correct info? Also the federal reserve sight will have info on there as well. Good luck! Hope you get your refund shortly. Also, sbtpg doesn’t start updating until 1pm their time again, which is west coast as they are in Sandeigo. Jazzy posted a comment from a gal on another sight. And she said every one with a date of 2/22 or 2/23 should receive soon. Praying we all get our refund soon today! ☺️

Reply

Nykky February 21

Hi Alexusb, when I first checked this am it was 5:30? Their time before the even opened, when I saw my account info with date received from federal refund, expected amount, total fees including their fees, and my balance after. Then it shows a pie graph and then under it it showed total amount payment, the method of payment (which was dd, with my account last 4 and complete routing number) notes and then message please allow 1-2 business days to receive and then amount. ( happy I took pictures of everything) I then call their number got confirmation. Now after that an hour later I check site again, everything is missing but expected to receive amount, total paid fees is there, and amount to be issued. I called again, to see if I could still get confirmation but now it won’t let me through saying invalid information. Took pictures of that too. I go back again, lol, 3 hours later took pictures, now all fields of above mentioned first time is back however account info is missing along with method payment missing. Their system is I think down now. Cause it won’t let me update. Reason I did these steps is because they pulled a number on me last year kept changing my date of refund issuance to me, lied about not being able to deposit funds in my account charged me additional fees and after having to verify myself and wait more time they finally mailed my refund to me several weeks later. Yes my mom had to remind I wanted to forget that bad. But try that was the first time I saw that on their site what happened this am, that I could remember. What you are describing is what I am also seeing on mine now. I will keep you most definitely posted. And my dd is 2/22

I always use tt but usally allow them to take the fees out from my refund but choose to pay upfront to avoid going thru the 3rd party this year which i see still doesn’t help ugh lol

Reply

Anne February 21

BrandySA- I don’t. But, you could check the federal reserve web site – “frbservice.org” and go to E-payments routing directory. And type in your routing number. Under ach payments, abd payments. It might tell you in there, and it might have a deposit date. I’m not sure. Hope this helps.

Jazzy February 21

Alexusb, you are welcome, you all hang in there something should be pending later or first thing in the morning. The Federal Reserve runs releases from 9pm – I think it said 6pm. So a lot of more release may go out again like it did last night at 9pm or the banks are just not releasing because they had too many this morning and doing them over a 2 day period.

I will see if I can find some updated information when I get home after 6pm. I will try to check back in if I get a few minutes to do so.

Back to work this week so my time is limited…sorry you guys. But I am still with you :-)

I got my refund this morning at about 7AM. I have USAA bank and they usually deposit a day early, at least they have for the past few years. Though as of Friday evening they had stated there was no pending deposit scheduled, and they did not process over weekends.

I had a deposit date of 2/22. SO happy this tax season is done for me. And it will be short enough for all you too. This is my first post as I’ve only been reading since the start. Thanks to all for your help through this, and a special shout out to Jazzy who is just plain awesome.

On Break:

I got 10 minutes to post this info for HRB folks…Go the the Reserve Link I gave you and type in the routing number on your Tax Return…it will let you know if a deposit has been sent to that account from the Federal Reserve to them..

If the link did not list in my previous post….google Federal Reserve Bank Services frbservices.org..it showed me all my bank account info and showed the #1…for a deposit pending. Under them middle section under E-Payments Routing Directory – It will give you the bank info that gets your money first…

FB Comment:
Look at your online return, it states that the 3rd party bank that your account refund goes to (before they take out fees) is BofI bank based in San Diego, California. You can find your refund account number & the routing number 101089724 located on your return. Mine says its a checking account. The bank does not open until 8am PST, & since HRB is not being very forthcoming with information, I suggest you call this bank to find out if the return funds have at lease been released, as they are the 3rd party processor for HRB fees. From this acct, the remaining funds should then be released to your ACH or Emerald i assume. Since the acct # & routing # are both found on your return, this seems like the best place to start. The number is (877)247-8002. Hopefully they can provide some answers. Good luck, everyone! Hope this helps. Have a great day!

Reply

Anne February 21

Bri- thank you for sharing that info. I was wondering that. I filed with TT but had my fees taken out, so it will go to SBTPG first and then my checking. While it is frustrating, at least the waiting game is almost over. I wish they would release early as well. In years past I have always used hr block, never had an issue. And they always released a day or 2 early. Guess time will tell and it’s just a waiting game. I am still hopeful for today or tomorrow though. I have a date of 2/23.

Do you have that for Jackson Hewitt or just HRB to check on reserve link?

Jazzy February 21

Hi Tam,

No, the Federal Reserve link is for ALL routing numbers anyone has on their tax return for look up and see if they see and pending transfer for the Treasury to the banks your monies is going to 1st…for them to take out there fees. Then you can look up that number and call and see if they have gotten the funds…also when the name of the bank comes up…one of the fields would show if something been sent…you will see 1 instead of 0.

I am multi-tasking between work and here…lol.

Ricky February 21

i did the web site the frb site and i put my routing number in that they gave me and it came up with the bank and the phone number thats it what does that mean

Reply

Jazzy February 21

amber,

The bank and number that cam up in the Federal Reserve database; is the where the money will be wire into that routing number and account. It may go thru 2 more process till it gets in your hand. It will indicate a ACH transaction if it is pending, if not, then it may have been released and accepted by the bank and you just waiting for it to be put on your prepaid card which maybe a little later tonight thru the morning….

I would really start to be a little more concern if it is not here by Wed…but they just may be holding for interest. Who really knows what is going on; this whole process starting with the PATH act has been a nightmare…one that seem to never end for all you who are still waiting…so sorry you all are going thru this..

Keep me posted…

Jenna, I am searching other sites to see if I can find updates where people are seeing some actions. When I find something I will share …to give you all a little hope that movement is going on with others..

So, perhaps you all can check those cards…or banks.

Good luck…I think all of you will be posting by midnight. I was shocked when I checked my credit union at 9pm and I saw my pending deposit, but the bank did not send me a notification until 5am that it was release to withdraw. I did not know it would be there that early; I was thinking midnight…

Keep your eyes on that account…you may be surprised any moment now..I will search for greed dot users for you. ok

Vanessa,

Its still early; with this many deposits hitting, I am sure it will take most bank the majority of the day, into tomorrow to finish releasing the millions of refunds.

Keep checking all day….

Vanessa February 21

I’m just called my bank an now they said they don’t see anything so I’m even more confused… But they do make deposits threw the day

Jazzy February 21

Sorry, all I will be in and out of meetings all day up until 2ish. So, good luck and I hope we I check back in I see a lot of good news :-) and a lot less of sad news :-(.

Stay in close contact with your bank they have all the answers.

Also, keep checking the WMR, IRS halted some DDD’s…and reversed back to …”we are processing…. Until you actually see your money don’t count on it…just yet! Just be cautious; remember Murphy Law’s; a lot can go wrong between the bank and your hands. Scammers are lurking…and swiping some pre-paids cards…if they get the chance.

If you have any doubts your bank info was correct; names not on account that is on the IRS check; notify the bank to stop the rejection and return back to the treasury.

Hang in there, I know it is frustrating to wait and wait and wait…some more after the PATH long wait. Your journey to will be ending hopefully today but for some perhaps it may be tomorrow the latest.

keep the faith.

Will check back in after 2pm, so fill in for me guys and keep the good work up encouraging and supporting one another until the final refund is released to everyone that has been part of this Forum Family….scroll thru the post I tried to update a lot of information to help get thru any bank delays/issues they may come up.

Love you guys and will be wishing you luck till then…

Dee February 21

Good morning all,

I just called my bank (credit union) to see if they have any deposit pending for taxes? They said as of now no and then they asked me what day was I expecting it, I told her 02/23 and she looked and she said she see it but the monies are not released until that day but if the funds become available before they will release it immediately so everyone who’s worried like I was call your bank let them know the exact date your expecting your money so they can do a internal search. I feel way better that at least the funds are confirmed. Sorry for the grammar i’m driving and felt that I needed to share TT user.

If you have he date of the 23 then yours will show up tonight or tomorrow from the santa Barbra bank. I believe this is true because I seen thousands of people with the date 22 see movement today and people with 23 didn’t see anything as of now. Good luck and I’m still waiting for it to hit my bank. So far I see it on the website and fees are taken but nothing in my bank

So, no refund yet. I am still hopeful I will receive it today/tomorrow. But, this is frustrating. Their is still no movement on either TT side or SBBTPG side. Yes, it’s a little concerning. But, I will just wait and see before I start calling, just because my ddd is not until 2/23. I was just hoping to get early. Anyone else use TT and have their fees taken out of their refund? Have you received your refund yet? This is my first year filing with TT. So I am curious to see how quickly SBBTPG sends refunds after they receive them. Or do they wait until the actual ddd to send your refund. What have you all experienced in the past or present? Do you receive them early? Or on the actual date?

Reply

Jazzy February 21

AJ, I just got notice SBBTGP they have started releasing funds this morning and some actually see the deposit pending for release. It is here, just the banks taking out their fees then releasing…

It should be today…..not tomorrow. Unless they are holding on to it for interest.

Good luck…

Morning ALL

Update: Please don’t get discourage if you don’t receive your refund today; if will be here over night/Wed. For those who do get their refund throughout the day, CONGRATS…LONG OVERDUE!!! But now the journey has officially ended for you.

Please contact your bank this morning and ask if they are going to deposit refunds throughout the day. Some banks do and some just once a day. Many they did not get theirs owed “FEES” that appears to be the HOLD up for yours.

Rumors have it some returns over 10K are being rejected by prepaid institutions and in return being mailed out. You will be told by them if that was the case for yours if for some reason you don’t see a deposit by tomorrow.

*****************************************PRE CARD SCAM WARNING************************************

PLEASE TAKE YOUR MONEY OFF YOUR PREPAID CARDS IMMEDIATELY. A FEW PEOPLE HAVE REPORTED MONEY ON THEIR CARD HAD BEEN TRANSFERRED WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE. CALL AND HAVE THE TRANSFER TURNED OFF ONCE YOUR MONEY IS ON THE CARD TO PREVENT FRAUD.

Not sure if this is a inside job (employees) or somehow fraudster found a way to swipe the cards prior to the prepaid banks got them. But this type of theif happen during the holidays on gift cards. It is not a new SCAM. Please protect your PREPAID CARD…

One lady got her money on Friday went shopping over the weekend, then checked her account and the balance was -0-.

Jazzy,
do I put my routing# or the routing # to the 3rd party, for the Fed Reserve…

Reply

Jazzy February 21

Debra,

The routing number that was submitted to IRS on your tax return; that is where IRS is told to send your money. You can then put your own routing number and it will bring up your account.

If I recall if you see 1 in one of those fields, I believe that means a pending deposit. Cause when I did mines at first it was 0 then when I actually say my pending deposit it was a 1.

That could be your first indication; a transfer has posted to the 3rd party or yourself.

Hard times-I have never had an issue with hr block emerald card. For me, it was always deposited on a day or two before the ddd date. And it was anywhere from 6pm- 9pm. But, I’m not sure otherwise. I always signed up for notifications. Should be loaded soon, if you have a ddd date of 2/22 or 2/23. Either Tuesday or Wednesday. Hope this helps. I decided to try Turbo Tax this year. I am hoping for mine to hit soon as well. Haven’t decided on whether I like them or not. But, most likely I will use hr block next year again. Just because I really like them.

Im so confused!!!!!

Reply

Anne February 20

If you had the fees taken out of your refund it will go to their 3rd party bank first so they can collect the fees. And usually it’s released the same day to your bank/ credit union. If you paid your fees out of pocket it will go directly into your bank account, and you do not deal with the 3rd party bank they use.

FYI – BANKS DEPOSIT TIMES:

If all banks updated customer accounts at the same time, it would be so much easier on everyone. We would all know where we stand and what time we could get ahold of our money.

Unfortunately, banks don’t share a uniform time to update our accounts. Depending upon where you bank, account updates take place at some point late at night or very early in the morning morning. See below for the window of time when your bank makes funds available.

Why Isn’t Money Available Immediately?

Everyone knows the day that they get paid. The truth is that your employer actually transfer your earnings into your bank account around two weeks before your actual payday, with instructions about which day it should be paid in to your account. This ensures that your money goes into your account on the right day and time.

Depending upon where you bank, your money could be in your account on the stroke of midnight on payday or it could be there after nine a.m. Some banks just like to hold on to your money for as long as they possibly can. Wells Fargo actually processes quickly, with accounts updated around midnight in most states.

Banks update their customer accounts every night, whether they have money coming in or going out. If you do your banking on the Internet, you will possibly have noticed that you are unable to access your account certain times at night. This is when your bank is updating the account. As soon as the bank has finished updating accounts, any money in your account is available to be withdrawn if you have access to that bank’s ATM.

So I was really hoping that the IRS would give me a date. Sent in on the 11th and I still have the We have received your tax return and it is being processed message. It would have been a great birthday present to log this morning and see a DD date. Especially since all of my stuff that I pay for the year are due now, like phone, car insurance, tags, etc. Crossing my fingers!

Reply

Jazzy February 20

Mandie,

Have you been able to order your transcript yet online, phone or mail? Have you call the offset line to see if you owe anything yet, if they have offset anything it will give you your DDD. Here the number (800) 304-3107

Since its been only 8 days, you may have gotten slowed down due to the release of the PATH funds on the 15-18. If you sent it on the 11th (efile)? That was a Saturday, no processing day, so I will say they actually didn’t start on it until the 13th which would give you a cycle code of 20170702…if you are a weekly the last 2 digit would be (05). I wouldn’t know that until you can see the codes on your Account transcript. Try seeing if you can view it online. If not, you can call this number and request they fax you a copy – you can down load the fax app it will come directly to your phone. here is the transcript number 800-908-9946.

You want your “account” transcript that will show codes… Do you have (1) bar on the WMR…if so, at least it’s been accepted. I think everything is going back to normal this week. Daily returns will update on the WMR on Thursday/Saturday’s…you could even see an update Wed. If you are a weekly, it will update on Thursday, at that point you will be able to order transcripts on Friday and see movement on the WMR on Saturday mornings…

Don’t worry to much right now because IRS process most return within 8-10 days…so I think you will get a DDD this week.

Hope this helps..and Happy Birthday :-). Wish you could have woken up to good news. But I think the BIG PATH release may have push you back a little bit…to get them out. Now that should be back on schedule and running on time…good luck.

Reply

Mandie February 20

Hi Jazzy!

Thank you for responding. I did efile and WMR and HR block stated that it was received on 11th which at least it was received that day. I tried to order my transcript for my taxes but I don’t have any of the verification stuff online, like CC, auto loan or mortgage so it was a no go. I tried to call the IRS today using the numbers provided in other articles and they kept saying due to high call volume, please try again later or the next day. I will try to call tomorrow to see if they can fax me transcript. Normally, its not such a big deal, as they usually give me a DD pretty quick, sometimes as early as 5 days(that was a great year!) but this PATH is just been hateful this year to all of us.

Reply

Jazzy February 20

Mandie, well you should see an update this Wed (Thurs morn) or Saturday. Not sure if you are daily/weekly. You will probably never get in to the 1-800-829-1040, have you tried this one (800) 829-0582 ext. 652 if you call between 7am – 7:30am we were getting in within 10-15 minutes 30 min tops.

Hope it is still that way now that they are in their peak season…

Good luck…

Jazzy February 20

Mandie, when you get them on the phone; watch and see they tell you they did not accept it until the 13.

Jazzy February 20

Mandie, just an FYI, e file dates are always off by (2) days. IRS will tell you they did not accept it until the 13th, may even say the 15th since it was done on a weekend and they have two days to open mail and stamp it in. Counting 2 days from Monday 13th, I read about this in the IRS Manual when we noticed IRS always gave us a different date than they day we know we filed…

Although IRS is open 24/7….just don’t want you to be surprise when they tell you a different date. If you get them on the phone ask them which date they show…just trying to see if this is accurate info.

Congrats on your hubby getting his license, that is a good career. Is he going to his CDL-A or CDL-B License? Either one is good…

Don’t forget to activate any debit cards you got in the mail; don’t want your refunds to be rejected due to invalid card.

Jazzy you are the best by the way!! Thanks for everything I hope you enjoy your car ❤️ For everybody else I’ll keep you guys posted if my fund come tomorrow and please do the same and if they don’t come tomorrow I’m praying Wednesday and I still didn’t receive my state and I checked the status it say your return is being processed. I hope that’s a good thing and I will get my fed and state all together tomorrow or on my dd 22

Jazzy February 20

Alexusb, you are very welcome :-).

Wow, that would be awesome if you get both this week.

I am hoping for a lot of I GOT MY DEPOSIT…POSTS. Tomorrow/Wed is going to be GREEN TUES/WED…like black Friday, I bet the banks managers are gearing up today behind the scene loading up those volts for all the refunds about to be released …..

Remember Federal workers gets paid on the 15th,SSI, SS checks goes out weekly….so the Treasury was busy since the 15th releasing billions of dollars to banks all over the U.S.

Banks are going to be busy….call member services in the morning to see if they see any deposit pending for release. Remember deposit comes throughout the day…up until 3pm for credit unions…you have to ask your bank how they process incoming ACH…all day or just after midnight.

Also if you think your check may be rejected for any reason, give them heads up so they can stop the rejection. If, you have a spouse and the check is in both names, but only one name is on the account; your bank may reject your deposit….if you have any doubts that something may be wrong…CALL, they will allow you to fix it before they return it back to the Treasury…they usually puts notes in the file and codes to flag attention to it…to hold.

Lord knows no one want to find out it was rejected after waiting all this time….

Thanks jazzy should I be worried about my state not coming yet ? My state said it’s being processed is that a good thing? Would I have got a letter by now ? This is the 1st time fling on my own and I regret it now . Idk what to do I didn’t get any notice and the state say being processed.

Reply

Jazzy February 20

Alexusb, you can’t get anyone to talk to you? See if anyone here on the forum is from your state; to see if they are having trouble. Goggle also, because I read a few states were NOT releasing state refunds until March 1. Do some research and see if you can find anything on google.

Also, ask the question. Has anyone gotten their state refund in your state…usually links will popp up with forums or others who may have some insight.

Texas, don’t have state income….so I don’t know much about the state refunds. I bet you find a lot of information when you google different ways to ask the question…good luck. Let me know if you find out anything.

Most have a database like WMR…for state only.

Googe HR Block STATE income look up….they had a link just for state…didn’t matter if you used them or not.

Hello jazzy I would like to personally say thank you for the advice that you have given everyone this year. Even though I have not received any funds yet I have hope. Everything that you have said so far about this year’s tax season has panned out in the exact order. I know a lot of people are grateful to get this insight from you, I know I would be lost right now and probably pulling out my hair. I am from nc I have five kids and my priorities are to catch all my bills up at least 4 months in advance and purchase a vehicle. I have a lot of personal things going on that this money would eliminate majority of the problems…if only, if only, it would just hurry up and land in my account. I hope they do away with this next year bc a lot of hard working people are catching hell and high water from delays

Hi Monee, you are so very welcome; glad I was able to help provide some insight; and it was my pleasure to help anyone that I was able to. I make it a point to post accurate information as possible. I spend countless hours reading IRS Manual or researching before I respond to post. I may not be 100% correct all the time; but I try to do my best.

I am really going to be happy to see you post when you finally reach that final destination (refund) in your hands…

You will feel a huge burden lift off your shoulders; what a relief that will be. IRS, can’t even imagine the hardship this new law caused many of us…pray there be a better way they can fight fraud than the PATH.

Good luck on finding that perfect vehicle for you and your family; happy days are in the near future for you all.

We made it together…:-).

God Bless…

Good afternoon kind people. I have a question that I hope someone can provide me with the answer.
When I file my tax I did put my First name, middle initial and then Last name. My WMR stating that I will receive my funds on the 22nd of February. I just realize now that my bank account only have my First name and Last name. Would that prevent me from getting my deposit? Would my deposit get dejected?
Thank you in advance.

Personally, I don’t think it will be an issue. But I would call your member services dept in the morning and give them heads up so they can note your account. They have your DL/ID on file to verify. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Good luck…

Update:

Although, Treasury and Banks state they are closed; a lot of actions are going on behind the scene. Trust me IRS started releasing funds on the midnight of the 15th – 18th to the treasury. The treasury has the ability to send funds out electronically automatically within min/hours to banks. They processed over 15 millions returns during that time frame.

Those who had dates of 22nd, most got their refund deposited on Friday. I was one of them. Those on the 23rd are the ones that will get theirs on Tues/Wed. The banks have the funds already; they just aren’t releasing until starting midnight tonight up until Wed…

Think about it, if it only takes let’s just say 24/48 hours for the banks to get the refunds from the treasury…then those that went out on the 15-16…reached the banks in time for Friday releases. Those on 17-18 will release on Tues/Wed.

It is the bank that are holding those refunds until after the holiday…IRS warned the delay are with the BANKS, not the Treasury or them…keep in mind banks do need time to reload and have cash brought in by (Armour) trucks or whatever means they use to reload their volts…to be able to have the capability to pay out those refunds if people wants cash in hand, instead of relying on debits/credits usage.

Keep that in mind…

IRS had this strategy planned long time ago when they started that PATH law…they knew how they was going to roll out the releases…Treasury Dept has the capabilities to release without being Opened.

My mom/dad gets SS and their checks are released (5) days and their bank hold it in “pending” status until the date on the check…the same thing for Refunds…some banks don’t hold (depends) on your bank policy. My credit union don’t hold…

Don’t be fooled…technology allows anything to process in real time…electronically means just that…real time….just like an email can come from me to you….within minutes.

Oh by the way everyone take a look at your WMR up until you actually get your refund. I have read where some have posted that Sat they had DDD, then Sunday it changed back to ..”we are processing your return…and this weekend that got a ltr 4883 (id verification) or 4464c, and letters asking to fax 1095 health form…varies issues…their DDD was pulled and placed back on hold….

So, don’t spend that money until you actually have it in your bank account/hands…IRS is pulling a lot of tricks this year…

I am pulling for you all to see that deposit in the morning…please keep us all updated.

Oh by the way, I purchased that 2014 Altima this morning. Got a great deal (President) special and with cash I was able to negotiate the price down along with discounts…for all those who are car buying…this was a great day for doing it…car lots or overstocked and practically giving them away…lol. (well) not really “giving”…lol.

I am one Happy Camper today…hope you all will be soon.

Good Luck…

Jazzy,
So I have been reading along for weeks. Just started posting questions though. So I filed with turbo tax does that mean the bank of turbo tax is the one holding the refund? Or how does it work does the irs only send them their fees and deposits straight to my account? When i talked to the irs they confirmed my dd info and said thats where they will be sending it… Im slightly confused lol sorry. Im just super anxious to get it because i need a car bad lol.

Reply

Jazzy February 20

Marissa,

When you owe fees….the entity you used enters their bank account number on the tax return before it is submitted. So, therefore the Treasury will send the refund to the account number listed, then they will get their monies, then forward to you, the prepaid card etc.,

Your refund can go thru as many as (3) processing before finally reaching your hands. This is why it is not good to use third parties/middleman ….most banks can still move it thru the process quick within 24/48 hours.

Mines went directly to my credit union. When I spoke to IRS rep, he asked me to state my account number, routing number and then he ask me if I had fees coming out to be re-routed to HRB, I said NO, I did it myself with NO fees…he said good; then it will go directly to your bank…with no delays.

So, it makes a big difference how fast you get your refund vs. others.

Hope this helps…

Thank you Jazzy for your input! You are an amazing help! Congratulations on your new car! That is wonderful! I am anxious as well. Especially since I filed with TT, and their has been no movement on either TT’s end or The bank they use. But, I am hopeful I will see movement tomorrow or Wednesday. Crossing my fingers it’s tomorrow! I have heard both good and bad things about the bank TT uses. So hopefully, they prove everyone in this forum wrong in the morning and start generating some movement and start releasing funds. I wish everyone good luck!

Jazzy February 20

Annie,

You are very welcome and thank you. Yes, I hope they are wrong and ALL see a deposit. Even if it is “pending” at least you will see it…right…lol.

Please try to pay upfront to eliminate any possible delays…Banks process are different, not a one fit all policy. Entities like to make interest off your money by holding it an extra day; just the nature of our society. IRS does the same…

Just like when you see 70% off on anything; trust me it was marked up to make you think you are getting a real deal….when in reality…it was the original price they were selling it for in the first place or a little more. How to catch them…google the manufacture price of the item…the price they purchased it for. Then you will be able to see how marketing 101 really works. Thank God, I got a Business Degree…I learned a lot in that marketing class..I would have never thought about that…educating yourself by googling and researching is a valuable tool; in today’s crooked society…smh.

Thank you for the banking info. I usually use Hr block and never hadn’t issues. I decided to try something different this year. Next year, I will be doing them entirely different. Lol. And I will be paying my fees up front. Learned my lesson there this year. I am not to worried right now. But, if I don’t see anything happen over the next couple of days I will start to worry. I just hope for everyone’s sake, TT and SBBT start some movement soon. I know there are a lot of people who rely on these funds every year to help make ends meet and to get caught up on things. ( I do as well). But, you have been so, so helpful this year. I am so glad I found this forum. It relieves a little bit of stress getting answers and knowing that there are other people experiencing the same thing. I don’t however look forward to next year. Lol.

Andy, ok great! Hope the information is giving those who are waiting some hope that real soon they will see those pending or release deposit. If not, then should be calling their banks to see what are their process and policy when ACH comes thru all day. Some banks depending on the volume; may chose to hold and release over a few days based upon their funds and availability to cash them. Bank runs out of money too…and have to restock…lol.
IRS is expecting to process an Appx. 53 million PATH returns released over (4) days…something to ponder :-)

These figures are only up to Feb 10, 2017 – NOT INCLUDING THE PATH FIGURES from Feb 11 -17 wkly period.

As of 2/10/17 IRS has paid out $27.777 Billion
Total Returns Received 32,090,000
Total Returns Processed 31,420,000

These statistical data is on the IRS website under News and Event – topic Facts and Figures (breakdown).

Jazzy I have told my mom about you and she of course questions about several things with those self employed, what forms is needed to report income, where can she obtain them, how much income is supposed to be reported, ex. some say anything over 10k in self employment has to be reported. And if you have any insights or additional information that could assist her in her Mary Kay career?

Reply

Jazzy February 19

Nykky,

It is so easy to file self-employment I did my parents. Just tell her to go the HRB and answer all the questions and all the forms are including in the packet for her. All she has to do it click on all that applies. HRB will do it all for her. It is several forms to complete…but really easy.

She don’t have to worry about gathering up each form. When they ask her how she is filing and she say Self-Employed the prompts will guide her thru it…truly simple. Tell her not to stress over it…and it may be free depending whether she made less than $54,000 I think that was the threshold. Even if it cost a little, it is worth it because she won’t get anything wrong…

Form 1040.

You have to file an income tax return if your net earnings from self-employment were $400 or more. If your net earnings from self-employment were less than $400, you still have to file an income tax return if you meet any other filing requirement listed in the Form 1040 instructions (PDF).

in order to report your Social Security and Medicare taxes, you must file Schedule SE (Form 1040), Self-Employment Tax (PDF). Use the income or loss calculated on Schedule C or Schedule C-EZ to calculate the amount of Social Security and Medicare taxes you should have paid during the year.Dec 7, 2016

Let me know if she need any additional assistance I will do my best to try to help break it down…ok.

You are 100% correct and yes were are at the “mercy” of IRS every single year, probably no matter what strategy we use they will find some way to hold up our money…or just stress of out for no reason…

Since 2014 things keep getting worse and worse for us taxpayers…sad to say I think it is only going to go downhill even more…

Well guys it is my card. My money is in there and shows in the account but i cant get my money off until i get a new card tomorrow. I filed 1/26 excepted 1/26 received state 2/9-2/10 in mail and my money was showing for hr block 2/16. My ddd is 2/23. Hr said my money was loaded 2/16-2/17. Im going tomorrow to get a new card. I never received an email or text alert. And my hr and emerald apps haven’t updated due to my card being messed up. Even calling my card to see what i have it says $0. But emerald and hr has ensured me i will have my money tomorrow when i go get a new card. My ass is getting up at 7 just to go get my card fixed. Good luck guys.

Well Jazzy I live in Mississippi. I have so many plans as for what to do with my refund but first I will give to the main ONE who blessed me to receive. I got my medication to get since I ran out and my dr visit also so my medicine can be adjusted. I am no longer working since mid last year due to everything medical so I will have to start from scratch on everything a place to stay included I may go into shock since I haven’t had any money in pocket since that time and was homeless til January. But it is ok. God is faithful and He will and has been supplying all my needs. What I take from this tax experience is that in everything we as people do plan how we want and expect things to go I speak mainly for myself for when I expect something, I usually get anxious and stressed but to always remember that it is not the supply but the Supplier that has the final say in all things. So I am going to be waiting on excitement maybe again for next year. Not anxious though. Lol. I will definitely not be filing early next year I usually file in the middle so this is definitely a first time experience and I will not be filing late. I did that last year and that was an additional nightmare lol. I wanted to get a car but right now it don’t make sense for me to get one when I am not allowed to drive. But I am decreeing and declaring my car 2016 Nissan Altima and house. I will NOT be having fees taken out anymore!! That is for sure!! Sorry for it being long. Lol. If I was to truly share whom is posting and sharing to you from where I been from 2016 to now, it would be a BOOK!!! I thank you all of you!! Sincerely

Nykky, God might not always come thru when WE want Him to, but He is always on Time and will lift our burdens. You need your medication and I pray there are services that are providing you all your needs as you find your way back to the lifestyle you knew before your health change everything…

I will keep you in my prayers and think of you always as we continue to walk this path of Life..so many ups and down, twist and turns….keep our heads spinning. Never give up on HIM…Don’t You Quit very inspirational and uplifting poem.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
Whe he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Hello Jazzy, and everyone! I am from Iowa. I am getting a new SUV. Lol. I learned to file later. Lol. All though, that still is a toss up for next year depending on the chaos they decide to put us through next year. Lol. I tried TT this year, and I think I will stick with HR block next year. Lol. Never had issues with them. Omg! I always search the data base. Haha! I have never had anything on there myself, but, I have found stuff for my relatives. We are down to the wire folks. Hopefully the rest of us will start seeing money in our accounts Tuesday! Good luck!!

Yep, Tuesday is nearing…hope we have lots of updates (monies) in the bank!

1. Tennessee
2. Getting an eye exam and new glasses, and a few pairs of jeans. Might do myself a kindness and get myself something I’ve been wanting awhile.
3. Don’t get so anxious over things you can’t control, panic attacks are no fun.
4. I won’t file the very day I get my tax return. As they say in Hamilton, I’ll be willing to wait for it. And I’ll keep myself more aware of what shenanigans the IRS might get up to. I was clueless this year due to staying away from the news in general. :/
5. I did that last year actually, came away with a bunch.

Jazzy, I had a question while you’re still here, if you’re still here! What times are people seeing their deposit come in? Is it overnight? I have an eye appointment at 11AM the day I’m to get my direct deposit (onto a Paypal Prepaid Card, which usually accepts it the minute it comes in, if my paychecks are any indication), do you think it’ll be there by that time or should I reschedule my appointment for later/a different day?

Hi Annie

Tenn is a beautiful place (nice) and thanks for sharing your plans and answering the questions. I love your answers to them all. I think a lot of us can relate to them…lol.

Not sure when you said your DDD was, but I am 99% sure everyone with a DDD 22/23 will see their deposits by Wednesday the latest.

So if your appt is the 24th, I think you are safe…

Debra February 20

I am still waiting :( in California
WMR has not had any updates with mine since day 1!! I have called several times and they have said it was received and everything looks ok and not to call back until or after the 21st day…lol. It is so frustrating that I cant track my return this year.
I have learned to do my own taxes like I’ve been…except this year.
Plans our to take the kiddos on a vaca…if the $$ ever gets here…

Annie February 20

It won’t let me reply directly to you so, here we are.

My DDD is 2/23, so I’m hoping that I have it by that morning. If not, I’ll call and reschedule the appointment, or maybe my mom’ll take pity on me and let me use her credit card until I get my deposit and then I can give the money right back to her. I dunno. Ugh, this waiting is excrutiating!

Thanks again, Jazzy. You were a bright spot in these stressful times. Much love to you.

Update: Did a little research. If you want to understand the process; contact the entity you selected for a more detail breakdown on how they process your refund. They all have different setups…

“[F]or those who lack a bank account, and/or would receive a paper check, [a Refund Transfer] may speed up receipt of [a federal income tax] refund by up to six weeks.”1

Every year, millions of American taxpayers choose to receive their income tax refunds using a Refund Transfer (or “RT”)2. According to the Internal Revenue Service, 12.9 million Americans chose an RT in 2010 compared to 12 million in 2009 and 11.7 million in 20083. There are several reasons why this product is so popular. Simply stated, a Refund Transfer permits a taxpayer who does not have a bank account to take advantage of electronic filing and direct deposit of his or her income tax refund. At the same time, the millions of taxpayers using RTs can have their tax preparation fees deducted from their refund.

Here’s how it works: The federally regulated banks offering this product set up a temporary bank account in the taxpayer’s name. In return for this convenience, the taxpayer pays the bank a modest one-time account set-up or handling fee (typically about $30). RTs are usually facilitated by a tax preparer or the software used by taxpayers who prepare their own returns. The return is filed electronically and approximately 8 to 15 after receiving the return, the IRS transmits the taxpayer’s refund to the temporary bank account. The disclosed account set-up fee, tax preparation or software fees are deducted from the refund amount, and the remainder is delivered to the taxpayer via their choice of disbursement methods.

Increasingly, the tax refund is being loaded onto a prepaid debit card, which provides unbanked taxpayers with an opportunity to establish a banking relationship by having their paychecks or government benefits deposited directly to the debit card account.

Hey jazzy – my status went to approved and says a check is expected to be mailed “by” 2/24 . Does “by” mean on 2/24 or could be before or after ? Bar went to approved 2/16 (Thursday) so I’m hoping they got it mailed 2/17 (Friday ). Any thoughts ???

Reply

Jazzy February 19

Bob,

No doubt you should have it by Saturday for sure. The holiday threw everything off (day)…I hope it comes sooner but yes Friday/Sat is more of a safe bet.

Keep us posted when it gets here, so in case others had theirs mailed we can see the trend and exactly how many days it takes vie mail.

Wasn’t it just a huge relief to see that DDD tho?

It is my understanding that IRS only mails out checks on Fridays . I’ve never done DD always sent to me . Have always got it on a Monday so there must be some truth to that . I’m just hoping they pushed it through. I don’t know how fast the system works . All I do know is ” THE IRS ” means “THEIRS ” till they want to give it up !!!!

Jazzy February 19

Hard Times, lmbo….it sure did get a little quiet in here. Let me see if I can lighten it up with a corny poem. I write poems about everything…a little humor why we wait for those funds to hit the banks on Tuesday…lol.

Tax (Poem)

As the tax year near, I’m ready to file my 2016 tax
Will fraudsters steal my info to claim the EIC max?
I must file quickly, as every minute my anxiety grows
Uhmmmmmm should I do it myself; or use the pros?

I had my W-2 in hand; so, I was set and ready to go
E-file? IRS says its the fastest way; to get your dough
Then, I get this Path msg; saying there will be a delay!
Well I thought to myself; what else can get in my way?

Why did I ask? I looked in my mailbox, guess what I see?
A certified letter from the I.R.S.; starring in front of me (ugh)
OMG, I broke out in a sweat; my hands started shaking
My head started pounding; every body part was aching

I was still in despair and totally shocked; getting the ltr
Calm down, exhale, just read; and see what’s the matter
Audit ltr 4464c, this must be a mistake; I can call or wait…
I am in too deep; I am about to lose a lot of nightly sleep (hehehehehe)

I don’t want any worries; I need to know what this is about
Only one way to resolve this; is to call the IRS and find OUT!
Two weeks later; bank notified me; my refund deposit is HERE (yipppppppeeeeee).
Now I relax a bit; until the process; starts all over next YEAR!!!

NOTE:
Bob, comment hit the mark; take out less for Uncle Sam
He’s making interest on your $, now that’s the real SCAM

Hard Times February 19

2017 has been the year ..With path Act messages that never should have been here, and all the bars we see disappear……. Don’t get me wrong the IRS is alive ,,,,and what they do next is no surprise…..As we scratch the walls and sweet drops from our face,, just knowing our money is getting in place,, now we are sitting and watching the clock anf hoping Santa Barbara will make that drop,,,, but until then I’ll see you on this page and I’m hoping Tuesday we are all out of the cage…

Morning update:

I am feeling really lonely now that no one have a tax questions anymore…lol. (sad face) But on the other hand I am so happy to see so many others helping each other by updating Bank institutions updates. (happy face) I am sure most of you got tired of seeing Jazzy, Jazzy, Jazzy….all over the forum day in and day out…well I don’t blame those who did, I got a little tired of seeing that myself…hehehhehhehehhehe.

Now this is a display of true TEAM WORK at its best…the 2nd half of the process belongs to YOU guys and I see you ALL are stepping up to the plate to contribute and share your experience and knowledge about the individual banks you have your Deposits being released. (AWESOME).

Keep in mind there are a lot of things can go wrong during the transition:

1. Wrong account information provided (double check your return)
2. Banks can deposit your refund in the wrong account (that happened to me on a regular deposit) and I had someone else monies in my account one morning. I contacted the credit union and they fixed it immediately on both occasions.
3. One of the occasion I had to wait until the next morning; they had to check their ledgers (credit/debits) balance sheet to see where they were off…to find the mix up.
4. Your name is not listed on the account (which must match name on refund) or it will be rejected. (You can fix this before the banks send it back to the Treasury by calling them and notifying them you are expecting a refund; they will allow you to come to the bank and add the name to the account; or put it in the right account by your NAME instead of the ACCOUNT number…

Tuesday morning let the bank know you are expecting that money; they will make a note on your account and watch out for it..some may even call you before they reject the refund out of courtesy if there is an error.

Bank Cards/Pre-Paid/HRB Loans/TT….etc., I have NO expertise/experience in this area; so I am 100% relying on ALL of you who does to take over and continue to help each other until everyone has gotten their funds which hopefully will be the latest by the 24th.

By all means GOOGLE, GOOGLE, GOOGLE the banks REVIEWS for prior tax refunds issues (good or bad). This may give you insight on what you can expect this year…

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP IN ANSWERING GENERAL TAX QUESTIONS AND PROVIDING UPDATES AND CONTACT NUMBERS ON BANKS/PRE-PAID INQUIRIES…TRULY GRATEFUL!

AWESOME FORUM: ANDY(AUTHOR)….DESERVE A LOT OF CREDIT AND GRATITUDE FOR CREATING THIS PLATFORM FOR US ALL TO BOND DURING (TAX) YEARS…

Other’s had on other site, but NOT this one. Andy; is an awesome Author that allowed us all to be US and let our personality shine in a positive way.

You have also contributed and helped so many with your post and knowledge and should be commend for giving up your time for others…So many on here have done the same…and I know those who are “silent” and those who “spoke” acknowledge this was a great group of (respectful/compassionate) people who truly cared about each and every one of their issues…and showed it in there posts/comments.

I am about to leave for Church….so you guys keep up the good work and carry on….Tues will get her soon, but I know not fast enough…the long wait by IRS, has shorten our patience and now they are asking you all to wait some MORE….geez that is pure torture uh?…SMH.

That is a great question. Just to be safe, contact your bank on Tuesday and ask them if you will have any issues with your refund. Is the check written in both names?

I hope you will be ok with just your name on the account if it is in both name. Let us know what the bank told you; in case someone has this issue.

Vanessa,

WMR should be back on regular schedule now and going fast. Monday’s the Master File sent over to the Treasure to release deposit on Wed/Fridays. Since the massive updates are over, shouldn’t any delays. I would think you would see movement on the WMR this week.

What is your cycle code? Can you view your transcript yet? If so, check it online and see if there is anything they could cause a further delay like code 570/971 or you just may see code 846 Refund Issued:

It’s only been a week…so give it one more week. If you like you can still try to see if IRS will give you any insight. Now that the PATH is over…WMR is updating normally. What is your message saying…?

I like “automatic” only. I be on the websites checking out everything, price, safety, MGP, insurance code (cylinder rates) to see how much my insurance will be for that type of car.

I got my eyes on this 2014 Altima S, $12,988 51K (mileage) 27 city/38 hwy (single owner). Going to look at it Monday…wish me luck. They are going so fast…had my eyes on another one but like us all, the money didn’t come in time…smh.

Nykky February 19

i contacted TurboTax in reference to several issues. One dealing with their system not showing change to approved but still saying accepted. He stated they have not been notified by IRS of change in filing statuses. Which he states they are waiting on updates from IRS. I explainr to him that there is an issue that I need to address with their bank cause the IRS have released my refund and they are not processing it when it have been sent. He said that is then with the bank and I said well this is also an issue for the company cause you supposed to be representing us and your company is going to lose valuable customers due to your bank that is representing you cause they are holding the refunds of not just mine but over thousands of your customers. I then also asked about the 3rd party contact number cause the number I received from them yesterday several times was automatic and I wanted to speak with a person living about my refund that I have not received. He gave me the same number I already had. Stated he needs to speak with his supervisor cause I said this is the same number, (which by the way they have a cool video where you can see them but they can’t see you,) placed me on a 15 minute hold which I waited he came back took off of hold realized I was still connected quickly put it back again had nerve to send me a survey about my experience all the while I waited and said exactly what you reading that it could of been resolved with a simple number instead of hide and seek. Which sbbt hours of operation tomorrow is 8am-12pm pst. Monday-Friday 6am-6pm. I pray that we all receive what rightfully belongs to us very soon. Without the tricks and schemes that we already as a group stood strong through.

Yep, it may be better to file April 14 at 11:59 (hit the button) to submit. Whatever the deadline date is going to be for next year…

Well legally we do have up to (3) years to file our current tax returns by law. Now you do know that IRS has the authority to file on our behalf without our permission. If they receive a W-2 or 1099, then they can do it. Now that is just too much power right?

No, real talk Nykky it’s true…I will search for it in the IRS Manuel and give you the exact wording. Now you know that going to file if you OWE them….even if you don’t they still will, but you could lose out on a lot of credits that you were eligible to take because IRS wouldn’t include those without you providing that information…that is the risk you take for not filing…getting less than what you were actually due.

Now, you know when big businesses get involve major changes are on the way…

I read IRS Audit Recommendations for next year…the one that caught my attention the most which of course there are many….was the one that states No one can claim a child on their tax return unless there is a COURT ORDER on file listing them as guardianship if you are NOT the Mother or Father of the child. If you are the parents (separated/divorce) etc., there still must be a court order giving one of the parents the right to claim over the other thru a divorce degree/CPS custody order.

This will allow them to check databases instead of asking for documentation/verification. No exceptions to this rule…wow. Then we got Trump wanting to eliminate the credits all together. Geez, they got my head spinning already…lmbo.

Hi Anthony, Congrats…

Wow, wasn’t that an awesome site to see on the WMR this morning…BARS with APPROVED and a DDD. I heard everyone’s exhale all the way here in Texas…lol.

Hopefully it will post today, if not by Tues/Wed.

By the way, post when it hits your bank….we are trying to see when the releases actually happened from the actual DDD date for next year trend…minus the holiday delay; oh and the name of bank.

Thank you

Hello world oh what a beautiful day when waking up to a DDD! I just wanna thank everyone who held me down diring this difficult time but I would especially like to thank Jazzy, all your hard work and dedication and knowledge really kept me afloat! YOU MY ROCK GIRL, love ya

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Lucy,

Congrats…yeah. Ahhhhhhh thank you so much for the kind words. Girl go get that Margarita and celebrate at 9am…lol. You deserve it after all the anxiety and stress IRS put us ALL thru uh?

It was an honor and pleasure to provide assistance; but you all gave back so much more to me than I gave to you. You all showed such professionalism and courtesy to everyone in the Forum and I could see the gratitude and appreciation from everyone.

THANK YOU, much love :-)

Jazzy February 18

To all those who DID not wake up to a DDD, I know you are feeling extreme stress and disappointment. Don’t worry, a few of us will remain until as long as it takes to help you get thru the rest of this journey that hasn’t ended for you just yet.

If you filed prior to Feb. 5th and did not get a DDD; please contact IRS ASAP. If you can’t view your transcript online to see if there is any issues / codes that indicate something is wrong CALL.

Don’t seek answers HERE because you at this point are seeking FACTS, not theories, speculations, and best guesses, which is all we can provided because each person taxes are “individual” and specific to their own personal status.

Letters are still going out. The date IRS is giving, stating wait until 27th is for a reason. That is when you should have the letter in your mailbox they starting sending out on or before the 15th. If you wait it out; you just delayed yourself that much longer…

The only (2) people that can ASSIST you from this point going forward are:

1. IRS
2. ADVOCATE

It may be something SIMPLE as an ID verification to something as SERIOUS as a FULL BLOWN AUDIT. No one could possible know the answers…but IRS.

They are open today to accept calls to help you:

If taxpayers receive an IRS Letter 4883C, it’s because the IRS stopped a questionable return. Before calling, taxpayers again must be prepared to validate their ID.

The IRS toll-free telephone lines will be available Saturday, February 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (local time) and Monday, February 20, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (local time).

Some of us will remain here until March 1, 2017 to help support you all the way; so please continue to rely upon us if you just need to express your frustration or talk about it…ok. A lot of us probably been thru whatever it may be. I was audited this year Mar. 2016 and completed my audit on Feb 10 this year after sending everything but my DNA..lol. I won and they ruled in my FAVOR…but it was the most “stressful” months and getting that letter in the mail, my heart sunked when I read it….pit it my stomach….so I know how it feels, speaking from my own experience.

Good luck…and fax over any documentation ASAP; you may be only a 1-2 week delay…

I have not left any messages on this forum but have been coming on daily to ease my stress level. I am happy to post that I woke up to a DDD of 2/23!! I am hoping for it sooner because I habe the emerald card and did the loan for the holidays and the took my paycheck yesterday for the balance of the loan! ( I direct deposit into my emerald card) We are residence in a motel at the moment with 4 children and they put me in a rough spot taking the money from my payroll. ( always paid loan back with refund) Anyways, happy to see the DDD and I am keeping every one in my prayers for a speedy refund! Thanks Jazzy for all the info! Very inspiring and helpful!

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Katrina,

You are very welcome. If it was not for the holiday you would see the deposit Monday, but now it will be as early as Tues, my estimation. Wed the worse case scenario. I will keep your family in my prayers that yours will be release asap. I know it has to be difficult being in a motel with your children.

IRS created a tremendous undue hardship on many that were already dealing with difficult issues. If the PATH law did not go in effect we all would have gotten the refund 3 weeks ago. I pray they come up with some other mechanism to fight fraud than this Path….

Hang in there a little bit longer…keep the faith. God is always right on time…for us; even in our darkest hour or when we feel we have reached our lowest moment…

You just proved to many on this FORUM, that none of us know what anyone is going thru in their personal lives that comes to a forum to seek any tidbit of info that can give them hope and to see that they are NOT alone in the PATH law horror that has been detrimental to most if not all; that find themselves caught up in this journey…

Just shows how a little kindness, compassion and humanity can lift up spirits and touch someone in the way it has YOU. You are the COURAGEOUS one to speak up and tell your story; I am so touched and inspired by your words. I gave up my life and time to devote it all to this site because I CARES and I had something to OFFER and felt it was my duty to do so and not sit on the sideline and say NOTHING…or allow other forums to ban/restrict or deny me to help others. I am guided by God’s deeds and works. No haters or shade by others will keep me from being a servant to God…

MORNING UPDATE:

WOW, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! A LOT OF HAPPY DANCERS..I am probably more happier than YOU are…LOL. Awesome. To those who woke up with that WMR LITE UP with the 2nd bar…APPROVED. You don’t have to ever look at it again to next year…don’t even worry about the 3rd bar. Pull that paper out and start making that list, and check it out twice, when the money hit the bank, it’s going to be NICE…(Poet) in me…lol.

NEXT QUESTION NOW: WHEN WILL I SEE THAT LONG AWAITED MONEY IN THE BANK…RIGHT? I am already reading your minds…hehehhehehheheheh.

IRS is now OFF the HOOK…..It’s between YOU and YOUR BANK: Depends on your bank if you see it this morning; if not my bet you will see it in your account on Tuesday/Wednesday the latest. But NOT the 23rd…no way.

Why does it take so long for the funds to show up in my account?

It takes additional time for refunds to be processed after leaving the IRS, and for financial institutions to accept and deposit them to bank accounts and products like debit cards. Also many financial institutions do not process payments on weekends or holidays, which can affect when refunds reach taxpayers. For EITC and ACTC filers, the three-day holiday weekend involving President’s Day affects their refund timing.

The refunds being released belong to legitimate filers who claimed either the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. That covers an estimated 15 million filers this year, according to H&R Block. But their wait is not over.

“Taxpayers will not see the funds deposited into their banking accounts until as late as the week of Feb. 27,” “There are many processing steps that the IRS, the Treasury and the banks go through to get the money into the taxpayers hands.”

Reply

Jason Bommer February 18

Is send to the bank by the 23rd and a deposit date of the 23rd the same thing?

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Jason, no

Send to the bank means = Treasury hit that electronic sent button to go directly to your bank account which hits the bank within minutes.

Your bank now is in full control regarding how quickly that process that pending transaction from the Treasury.

DDD date of 23rd…is giving you apprx date as to which you should have it in your account. They give (5) days from the time they sent it till the time the bank post it to the account. If you don’t see anything with (4) days pass the 23rd then they are saying you should PANIC…because something went wrong. The acct number was wrong and the bank rejected it and sent it back to be mailed. Or, your name was NOT on the account…that caused the rejection. Several reasons could send it back..

Good morning everyone. Question. Does anyone else on this forum have a status on the WMR website of “STILL PROCESSING?” I filed on 2/2 received on 2/3. Ordered both transcripts on 2/11 and I have codes 150, 806, 766, 768, 570 and 971. I called the IRS offset and I have no debts owed. 507 means a hold on my taxes and remember I ordered these BEFORE the 15th. So I ordered again yesterday. I am DEFINITELY calling the IRS this morning because I need answers ASAP. But does anyone else have or had similar codes and the same message displayed on their WMR website? Frustrated is an understatement. But I am remaining calm. Also I am claiming the credits because i have a 7 and a half month old son.

Thanks Jazzy!!!!!! I don’t know you personally, bit you & everyone else WAS VERY HELPFUL & I can honestly say I used to work for the damn IRS (excuse my language) but this was crazy!!!!!!! They need to reconvene amd come up with a different solution for fighting fraud! This is surreal!!!!!! Smdh! I finally got a date (even though I was accepted back on 1/13) but none the less it finally appeared.

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Nell, lol I use to be a former IRS employee as well and I agree they must do a better job next year. But I am afraid for us because Trump new tax plan removed the EIC, ACTC and Head of Household credits. Only keeping the CTC for children up to 13 years old.

If he gets his way, this could be the last year we are allowed to claim the credits. Now, of course that would stop all this fraud but it will hurt a lot of us extremely.

Let’s just hope HE don’t get his way; at least not in time for 2018 Tax Year…for us to get one more year and prepare ourselves financially going forward without it…

Jazzy February 18

Brown Eyes,

You need to call an Advocate first thing in the morning; they will help you resolve this within 1-2 weeks. Once you send them what they need…IRS has 1 week to respond back to the advocate as to whether the documents were sufficient to release the hold.

They opens on Saturday. Look up your local office and call for an appt. They also have access to IRS database and can tell you exactly what they see in the system and what you need to send IRS to clear it up.

Call both of them…this is the statewide number: You can also call the Taxpayer Advocate Service toll-free at 1-877-777-4778, or fill out Form 911, Request for Taxpayer Advocate Service Assistance. Tell them you have some type of HARDSHIP….that is the only way that will open a case file for you to help.

They are the quickest way you can get this resolve…if not it may take up to 6-8 weeks; depend upon when IRS get to your fax.

Erin, yes that is a very good sign that you will get a DDD in the morning. The WMR should be working I hope to indicate that, but if not the next best thing would be to view your transcript online in the morning and look for the 846 code, if you are unable to do so, the you must call IRS in the morning and let them know you don’t have access online nor the WMR is working reflecting the 18th update…then they will have to verbally tell you the DDD…

Good luck, keep us posted…

My Wmr is still reading being processed so I just ended up calling.

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Nv, yes it always comes before the DDD; the holiday may delay a little bit. If you don’t see it in your account in the morning, most likely you will Tuesday morning….rare for you to get it on that exact date. I got mines already and the WMR did not update and I am sure I had a DDD for 2-22nd. My transcript said 846 date of 3-6-17. That date don’t mean a thing…

You will see it sooner than that for sure…

Brown Eyes, the only code that you want to see is 846 and the negative amount is the amount that will be deposited to your account.

Code 971, 507, 1121 are not good codes. You can google IRS CODES it will give the a list of the meaning of each one.

Good Codes 150,806,766,768 and 846

Pretty Brown Eyes February 18

Okay I have codes 250, 806, 766,768,570 and 971 as notice issued Date 02/27/2017 and it has $0.00 after the date across from code 971. I want my refund

Pretty Brown Eyes February 18

Jazzy… I called the offset line earlier this month and they said that I have nothing pending. I had an offset back on my 2014 return and even last year I received my entire tax return. I can call the phone number now and find out something? The 800 number you just provided

Reply

Jazzy February 18

That’s the problem, they caught it this year; this happen to someone else in a forum and IRS offset the amount and took it from them this year.

Now if you owe IRS (levy/lien) it will not show up on the OFFSET line….you will have to contact this number for them.

Hey Jazzy. I actually just called and I have no debt that is owed in which I will be offset in the IRS tax offset system. I will be calling the IRS in the morning, because I need answers.

Jazzy February 17

FINAL UPDATE:

IF you don’t make the cut….at least IRS will be Open to answer all your questions Sat and Mon. No one at his point forward can help….answer “WHY” except IRS….could be anything that caused your delay…

I hope I was able to get you all this far….but my job is done after tomorrow. IRS PUT ME OUT OF A JOB…LOL. But I will keep checking in up until March 1, 2017 to see any updates / posts as those who continue to have to wait for releases due to issues they need to be resolve. Some may have just been re-sequenced for a 2 week delay..nothing serious. But IRS will be able to address ANY issues at this point…

Why does it take so long for the funds to show up in my account?

It takes additional time for refunds to be processed after leaving the IRS, and for financial institutions to accept and deposit them to bank accounts and products like debit cards.

Don’t mind that date at all, just saying you will be completed by that date. You will see a DDD tomorrow no later than next week your funds will be in your account.

In the morning, you should see a 846 code. Until you see that date’ your refund HAS NOT been released by the U.S. Treasury. That code is generated after the treasury hit that electronic button to your bank…

You can get a deposit without seeing that CODE…that is the RELEASE CODE. Hope you can view it online to check for it….if not, call IRS and they will confirm if you don’t see an update….which you will :-).

Brown Eyes, correction. You “CAN’T get a deposit without seeing the CODE 846 or IRS / WMR inform you of a DDD…then you are good to go.

Hopefully the WMR will update for real, if not, you won’t be able to see anything without being able to view your transcript online…ugh.

If that WMR is not LITE – UP with BARs….the only way you will be able to know if you got a DDD is to call IRS and confirm….IRS insisting that the WMR will be working for the MASSIVE UPDATE….uhmmmmmmm I guess we will have to just wait and see about that….

Good luck! I hope we are both eating good tomrw!! I hope I can fall asleep. I can always pay my bills…just in a pinch now and this refund will solve all my probs plus more!! This group should have a private fb group so we can all be tax buddies forever hahaha.

Hey Everyone! I have been following along with all these comments and coming here for any tips this tax season. Thank God it’s almost over & thanks for all your help! I checked my transcript today and I have 846 refund issued with date of 3/6/2017 WMR is still in processing after PATH message. Will I actually get my refund on March 6? Or will it be DD before that (I sure hope so) any insight would be great! Thanks

Thanks Jazzy for your help. I got a 846 code but the date is march 6 my dd cycle code is 20170605. Hopefully something soon.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Anne, trust me you will have your money by the 22nd, I am thinking earlier than that. But no way you won’t have it by the end of next week.

That date is wayyyyyyyyyy off. I have the exact same date, WMR is still saying it is being processed. 846 code on transcript and got my refund this morning in my credit union account around 11ish…

So, I think in the morning or Tuesday.

Cross those fingers, toes and legs…lol.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Anthony, they are moving really fast it is possible you will be in the huge update in the morning. But if not, give it another week. They will run a new Master File tape on Tuesday for Friday DDD….

Anything is possible, let me know if you get a wonderful surprise in the morning. Also, you can call them and hope they will tell you the status. Can you order your transcript yet? The account?, if not, then that will be your first indication whether you have been processed yet….

If you can, see what the codes are ok.

Reply

anthony February 17

Thanks, I will update you in the morning..ordered my transcript via mail…

Reply

Anne February 17

I got to see my transcript. I’m not sure how to find the refund date. A few dates on there.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

It will be the very last date on the ACCOUNT transcript….you will see 150, (806) withholding 766, 768, then the FINAL 846 Refund Issued. Could be other codes; you can google IRS Codes….if you want to know what they are.

You don’t want to see freeze code 971, 570….or a letter has been sent…etc.,

Hope this helps…

AesLrs February 17

Hi everyone! I was reading these comments yesterday and in despair (eventhough Jazzy was being incredibly positive), but I have a positive update! Submitted my return through JH on 1/20. Path message until 2/15- then changed to is being processed. This morning changed to has been approved and will be sent to your bank BY 2/22, 27th at the latest. Buuuut I just checked and it’s all in my account. It may have been faster because I did use the pre-paid card offered through JH. I don’t know. But I’m happy to say that I received my return and am paying off bills that have been waiting for it :)

Reply

Jazzy February 17

AesLrs, thank you, CONGRATS, wow now that is a positive update. That will give others hope as well that they may see funds in their account tonight or in the morning. Just prove the 22nd DDD doesn’t matter. I always got my refund (4) days before the scheduled date…

In the morning I think EVERYONE LEFT will be HAPPY CAMPERS too.

I pray no one wake up to a sad face :-(.

Reply

FJB February 17

It does appear that the majority of people getting their returns earlier than their DDD do have pre-paid or re-loadable cards.
I have Chase so I hope the dont keep it all the way until the 23rd (a Thursday).
In the past if my DDD was on a Monday it would be in my account on the Saturday before.
Guess we’ll see. I’m just glad to have a date verified by and IRS employee.

Tonda February 17

Nope FJB that’s not true, I wish it was. I have a prepaid card and I still haven’t received anything and my wmr still says processing

Hey Tam,

Yep they did a number on these deposits delaying them until the end of this upcoming week. I pray that yours will be here on Tuesday as many others…

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Tammy, it says that but in a couple of hours you will be able to check again..lol. From past experience, most ppl got their refunds (4) days prior to the DDD date. With the holiday, it may push your deposit to Tuesday the latest, unless you wake up to a ddd in the morning and that sure can happen…

Call your bank before they close and see if they see a pending transaction…in the morning too. Since most close early.

Reply

Tammy February 18

Jazzy, the site updated to say deposit date of 23rd but the little bar has not moved to sent, does that matter?

Jazzy February 17

For those of you who have yet to talk with IRS, here are a few other options you can give a try.

1. Call the Treasury and ask if they have release your fund to your bank – Treasury number (800) 304-3107

2. Call the offset line, if you owed monies; this will be the first indication that you been processed if it says its be paid. It will also, include a DDD date as well.(800) 304-3107

3. If you are unable to get your transcript call and ask if they can pull it up and let you know if they see the code 846 or fax it to you. 800-908-9946.

4. Keep trying to get a live rep (800) 829-0582 click #1 then the ext 652 or 18008291040, 1 for English then 2241

5. If it has been 21 days, and have a hardship get a tax advocate to set up an appt with you. They can resolve ALL issues within 1-2 weeks. 1-877-777-4778. They can also pull up your return and tell you the DDD.

6. Also, when you get IRS on the line tell them you need them to do a 911 Request Form on your behalf for an advocate to contact you. Tell them you do have a hardship…they can do that.

These may or may not work, but worth a try. If all fails, then give it till in the morning and see if you are in the MASSIVE FINAL DAY UPDATE…

Reply

Debra February 20

Jazzy you are the best!! Idk where you get all this info from but it works. I called the Offset line and sure enough I have a small offset but it did provide me with a DDD of 02/23. So I will continue to wait until then…3 more dang days!!! Lol…

Again, lesson learned…do my own damn taxes!!

Hi Michael, I am glad you joined this awesome group. Great, you got the 846 code at least you know you are done and the money has been sent to your bank. Yes, give it until tomorrow….if nothing. I bet it will be in there first thing Tuesday morning….I am glad many are seeing movement for a change.

Congrats…that 846 code is a sure thing…

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Samantha,

No, wait until in the morning and see if you get a DDD, if not, then I would worry and be on the phone with IRS. You filed on the 1-17th accepted by the 20th, then there is no reason you should not make the cut in the morning.

You may have a letter on its way if you do not get updated. Try to get your transcript online to see if you have codes, if you can’t do that….call them an they should tell you the status…

Good luck…

Nv, thank you for the comment, glad you are please with the information on this site; we are here to help.

Shutting down the computer now…this time for real…lmbo.

Jazzy February 17

Hi Nena, I would be a little worried, but then again tomorrow is a big update. If you can get thru to IRS, I would just to ease my mind. Hopefully, you will be ok.

There are some people still getting letters tho; so if you filed before 2-5 and have not gotten an update and is still saying processing…uhmmmmmmm don’t want to think anything is wrong until after tomorrow…

Then I would start panicking….just saying!

Hi Alexusb, you and I are in same situation. I believe if you got fees coming out from TurboTax like I do then it went to Santa Barbara tax product group first and then to you.

Alexsub, google Have anyone with Turbo Tax prepaid got their deposit, you should get a lot of resources to click on, usually there is a forum for every IRS topic that fits your specific issue or concerns.

There are great resources to determine a trend in deposits being release.

Reply

Alexusb February 17

It’s not turbo tax prepaid it’s a excella prepaid card from check cashing place :( I don’t know what to do

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Alexsub, if that is a card that others may have used, try google the name of the card holder or type just in case someone have gotten some insight on deposits.

I don’t have a lot of knowledge of prepaid cards….never used them at all. But if you have a ddd for the 22nd, I would think the would have the refund and release your portion by tomorrow. for sure before the 22nd.

Did you try calling the treasury number – just to see if they will tell you it has been released yet? It may be a long shot but I would try before they closes at 5pm.

On a positive note, I am glad you got a DDD…just hate the slow processing part ugh :-(

Good luck, hope you see some movement soon…

antinique February 17

Hi how much do they take out your whole dollar amount before giving u your check

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Just a reminder that letters are still going out; so if you feel you should of had your DDD…please call IRS.

If taxpayers receive an IRS Letter 4883C, it’s because the IRS stopped a questionable return. Before calling, taxpayers again must be prepared to validate their ID.

The IRS toll-free telephone lines will be available Saturday, February 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (local time) and Monday, February 20, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (local time).

Alexusb February 17

Alexusb, you are very welcome, sorry I don’t have knowledge of pre paid cards or SBT bank. I direct deposit into my credit union account. Never used a middleman…I understand the anxiety this must be calling, not to see any updates. It still could happen before close of business…

You are in my thoughts…hang in there, and yes, try googling different possibilities or look at their reviews and see if they have had prior issues with deposits of refunds…

Good luck…

Jazzy February 17

Enjoy your afternoon all. I got to go spend this money before IRS send me an Audit letter…hehehehehehhehehhehe. Buying a new car (CASH)….sick of payments ugh?

All I wanted for this money to come so I could be FREE of all those finance charges and (5) year note.

Not after today…..

I will check back later; hope some more good news is shared. Remember if you not sure you will get your update in the morning keep calling IRS to get assurance. They will be open at least Sat to give you answers as to why you didn’t see or get a DDD for next week. The 27th date is given for processing time between treasury and bank.

Hang in there and don’t get discourage…keep the faith all will be fine tomorrow morning.

Good luck on your car hunting as well. I figure if IRS try to come back and take their money back with an AUDIT, heck at least I got a car…my payments to them will be much smaller than a car note right?….lmbo.

Just kidding, I been thru my audit in for 2014 this year the closed by file on 2-10-16 whew the ruling was in my favor…so I was worried it was going to delay my 2016 refund but I got it….so all good.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

abeach, that is the CODE that release your refund and CLOSE YOUR TAX YEAR. The money has left the IRS and Treasury when that code appears on the transcript. It helps balance the books with the debits/credits…

YOU ARE DONE…your money is in transition to the bank…even tho treasury don’t have it now they sent it to the bank electronically submitted.

So it is up to your bank now…to post.

Hey everyone who has not had a change in anything I just called advocate hotline and got the 23rd as my date they will tell you what part is being released and help you get anything that is not being released. I had to switch shifts with one of my other managers to go and handle this you can go to your local office and try to walk in but if they can’t help you they will give you a number to call and I promise you they will tell you what is going on thanks Jazzy I did listen just to let everyone know she knows what she is talking about.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Hi Twan,

So glad you were able to get results this morning. WTG. All it takes is a lot of effort to demand they let you know if something is holding up your refund. If anyone don’t see an update tomorrow. Then perhaps IRS is needing something and no letter went out.

Twan, they said they sent you a letter and you never received it, and the advocate didn’t see one in the system. See, you guys….it takes a lot of work to get to this real issue to get your refund release within 1-2 weeks after finally finding out if something is wrong…and you never knew it.

Great job…

Hope everyone call or wait until tomorrow to see what happens. I think most will be ok tho. Maybe a few will not.

good luck everyone and thanks for sharing your experience with us all. We truly appreciate the updates.

Not to play Devil’s Advocate, and I know they are putting people on hold to research, but I hope them saying the 23rd is not just an update to whatever script they are using.
But I’m going to stay positive and hopefully that DDD reflects on WMR tomorrow.

Hello jazzy I filed my taxes on Jan 23rd the day the were being excepted, at first it gave a message about this path stuff and check back the 15th of feb, well it finally changed to received and processing and have not moved since yesterday, what must do?

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Herman, wow you filed on opening day, that is weird I would expect you would have gotten some update; but they are processing them randomly; I think tomorrow is YOUR day, you can also call up to 7pm and see if they will give you a status update…good luck.

Keep me posted…

abeach250@gmail.com February 17

Checked my transcript got a 846 code with a date of 03-06-2017…what does that mean?

Reply

Jazzy February 17

abeach, I got that today as well 846 and I have a pending deposit that just went thru at 11am credit union. I had the same date of 3-6-17 pay that no mind…you will have it by tomorrow morning, no later than Tuesday in your account.

CONGRATS…FINALLY…..we can EXHALE yeah…

Saya February 17

Good Morning Kind People,

My WMR said that I hould receive my funds on the 22 or 24 the latest. And to contact my bank if the funds was not there by the 27. I know, I know, we can never predict the time but.. Is it really possible for me to get my funds on the 22?

Reply

Jazzy February 17

CONGRATS Saya

I bet you will see that refund today in your bank account; or tomorrow. But you will get it before then. Check with your bank after 11’sh and see if they have a pending deposit ready to post.

If you don’t see it tomorrow; it could be Tuesday…the money is already on its way to the bank when you get that DDD date.

So, get ready to party and have a wonderful 3-day holiday :-)

Good deal Saya I’m glad to see movement today…But don’t worry the rest of us will have the message Saturday morning,,, just a few more hours really

Sweetb February 17

Yes it is. Keep checking your bank. It could be anyday. My wmr updated today to refund approved will be sent 22nd. But i got my money last night. Checking your bank is even more important than wmr now for those with dates. If i got my refund and my wmr says 22nd, then that can only mean they are releasing funds now. And its up to your bank. I suggest going into your bank online settings and choose notify me of deposits by text. Most banks have that. That way you know right away.

Jazzy February 17

Morning Nicole,

It’s coming today or tomorrow. So, let’s keep thinking and praying for great news for you ok. Call this number and tell them to FAX your transcript because you need it for school…but you need a fax number handy. That way you can see if you have the 846 code. Also, you can ask the person who answer the phone to pull it up for you and tell you if the code is there. If they say “YES” GF, check you ball ALL DAY…it just may POP UP. 800-908-9946. They do faxes.

Reply

Melissa February 17

I’ve been following you guys and today I also got the still processing but on my transcript saw the 846 Refund Issued 3.6.17. But my credit union said they didn’t see anything pending deposit. So who knows.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Melissa,

Most credit union deposit all day; its possible you will see it in the morning. I think IRS scheduled for people to have it by the weekend to spend and boost the economy during this 3 day weekend. Just my theory. Hope it is a correct one.

Keep me posted….

Worse case, Tuesday…

Reply

Melissa February 17

So I called the number you had listed Jazzy and I got a nice rep. Told her I was checking on a past bill I paid, she looked and told me it was paid. And the good news was I had a DDD of 2.23.17. Hopefully it actually goes in sooner. My credit union did say anything pending for deposit would go in at anytime but they didnt see it and usually they can. Ill keep watching.

Jazzy February 17

That is great news…..so glad you got a DDD. Hope you see a deposit by tomorrow. That would be nice.

For real…when we use to do paper returns. For years, mines always came on a Saturday and the mailman is the who would told me that theory and it made a lot of sense to me…

Nykky February 17

I figured my federal would have been my hold up since it got pulled for path. Which I didn’t know about cause I haven’t been able to keep up with the info. Was counting on my state so I can pay for my medical appointment and my prescriptions. So when ms sent me letter I rescheduled my appointment for next month so it will fall at least then I would have my federal…. anyways… pretty brown eyes, we all should be getting our dates hopefully by no later than Saturday I hope and pray.

Nykky February 17

Oh my! That’s what me and my daughter was talking about on hers. She just had my second granddaughter and hers is still saying same message as before because of new life changes IRS is holding or asking for additional information but not catching those that’s stealing identities. A friend of mine still haven’t gotten her last years cause the IRS is saying in their system she is deceased when she has been receiving Ssi. She is still trying to get her refund from her identity being stolen

I chanced upon this site when I was Googling things about this whole EITC thing, which I was affected by too. Thank goodness for y’all not being stingy with info, I was starting to get panicky. I filed on 1/27, accepted 1/28, and I still have the “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.” message that it changed to after the PATH message was out of date. I haven’t gotten any other messages or requests for information or anything like that. That’s… a good sign, right?

I’ve not called the IRS because I have horrible phone anxiety – like, seriously trembling, trying not to cry phone anxiety – but y’all have given me some hope that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Bless y’all, and I’ll keep all my fingers and toes crossed for you all that you get your refunds soon!

Annie, please call them actually that would be great if you did cry and let them know how stressful and how much axniety they are causing you worrying…if they have any empathy they would try their best to understand the position this wait put a lot of us in…and will do everything to help you and provide you the status and the date of your DDD.

If the first rep don’t care, never give up try try again…you will hit the jackpot. I truly feel you will see movement and it will be here by tomorrow.

God bless you and I got my eyes, toes, legs, fingers, and ears crossed and I didn’t even know I could do that…lmbo

Well, I didn’t call – the talking-on-the-phone struggle is REAL – but I woke up this morning to that second bar lit up and a date of the 23rd for being sent to my bank!

If you really is concerned call IRS back and tell them you got a code instructing you to call…but you don’t recall what the code was because you are not at a computer…

That will force them to look into your return and be able to let you know if there is any pending issues. If not, then you should get a DDD today or tomorrow morning…good luck. ok.

Thank you so much for the kind words. This is why I devote my time in trying to help the ones who are truly good folks and appreciate each other.

You are the best….:-)

Well my state return finally got approved. Apparently they had to make an adjustment, but I don’t know what kind because I haven’t received my letter yet. So now I don’t know how much my refund is, I just hope it’s still a good amount

amber, that is good. You will see an update and get a DDD most likely by tomorrow morning. They did say MARJORITY will have a DDD….so I pray for you gf, that you be one of those lucky ones.

Fingers crossed :-).

My cousin just checked WMR and had a DD of 2/22 then checked her account as she was going into the store and its actually pending for deposit tomorrow, so clearly the WMR is not up to date!

Hello Lucy… I might be asking to much, but did she also have the PATH message, then it went away and had her tax return amount and the message that we all was getting that her return was being processed?

Yes

I was told by the IRS rep not to rely on the WMR because it’s not updating correctly.

OMG I just got notified by my bank that my return is in my account and ready to use. The rep told me this morning I had a DDD of 02/22. But its there now!!! Keep in mind, my bank is super quick about posting. So what I can take from this is that if you have a DDD of 02/22, then they are starting to release those funds and you could see them anytime.

Finally got my refund….woot!
