2017 EITC and ACTC Refund Delays Due to PATH Act But People NOW seeing Tax Returns Being Processed, Accepted and Direct Deposited

812 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.

[Update Feb 20th] 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.

THE END….

[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.

Anne February 20

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.

So frustrated talked to someone at turbo tax he said taxes would be sent directly to me not to their bank. Im so confused i asked how is that possible if you guys need to collect your fees from my taxes? He then read me the same answer every time i asked a question.
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.

Money in; Money out…it’s design to work that way…and trust me T-mobile and a lot of business were chastising IRS (article) for hurting their 1st qtr reports by holding our refunds keeping us from spending with them…smh. When we are the real victims…geez.

We want to spend it as much as they want it…I bet next year IRS coming up with a new strategy. Let’s just hope that strategy doesn’t consist of eliminating the EIC/ACTC credits altogether ugh!

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.

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.

Nicole February 20

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.

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….

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…

I know what you mean, it is the best feeling ever to be debt free. Talk about exhaling..lol. You are almost there and I hope you and your family enjoy your trip together. Now that sound like a plan :-) I know you deserve the break; this has been a very stressful tax year, to say the least…lol.

Crossing my fingers that you be one of the lucky ones to see a deposit tomorrow rather than Wed.

Chasta, where you live in Alaska? Dang must be cold in your neck of the woods. My bill is only $61.00; we only get 2-5 days if that many of temp under 50 degrees. We only have two seasons in Austin (summer and summer).

Saya February 20

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.

Jazzy February 20

Saya,

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…

Hi Jazzy,
Thank you again for taking your time responding to my posting .
I have called my bank and according to the person on the other line it would be fine. But I am still going to call the bank tomorrow morning to talk tothe ACH department. Only they can see incoming or future DD. .
Thank you again for your time.

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…

Anne February 20

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.

Anne February 20

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. And hoping I can find you all again.

Jazzy February 20

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).

Nykky February 19

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.

Marissa February 19

Is there any one who filed tt and has gotten their money even though the santa barbara bank hasnt updated?? Just wandering. Its very frustrating this year because i file with tt every year and usually when the irs says approved my moneys in my account next day. This year its taking forever. :(

Tam February 19

I learned that sometimes filing early can be the problem if I would have waited then I wouldn’t have been on hold and maybe would have got my money last week but knowing IRS who knows basically we are at there mercy. It always upsets me because there’s never no problem with them taking my taxes out my check and getting their money but I guess that’s how the cookie crumbles.

Jazzy February 19

Tam,

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…

I truly don’t know what to expect in 2018. File early/late/in the middle. I think I will just flip a coin…lol.

Here is a comment I read, someone is stating they got their refund from HRB…

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. I will update you tomorrow on how long it takes after i get my new card.

Kim February 19

Yeah I’m in the same boat..i definitely plan to get my finances together because I have a feeling this might be the last yr for EITC thx to you know who..that way i don’t have to stress so much next yr depending on it

Nykky February 19

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.

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?

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…

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.

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.

Jazzy February 20

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.

Bob February 19

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 ???

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.

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 .

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!!!

Bob, comment hit the mark; take out less for Uncle Sam

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…

Nykky February 19

Jazzy that is so true and funny!!

Marissa February 19

So does this mean refunds are most likely going to hit tuesday for those of us that used turbo tax

Reply

Alexusb February 19

We should have it by Tuesday and if not by our dates. I spoke to two of my friends and they said they have always received on the date the IRS website say. Keep me posted and I will do the same and as of right now still not updates

Hello everyone I filed with TurboTax as well my DDD is 2/23 the sbtpg does not have my refund yet. I don’t think they have moved yet bc of the holiday. I hope something happens on Tuesday bc this waiting game is ridiculous.

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…

THANK YOU ANDY!!!!!!!

Oh no Jazzy we are never too tired to read your blog..we’re all just waiting for Tuesday or the 23rd for the DDD :)

Morning Kim,

LOL, thank you. I have felt the love from many if not ALL on this forum and I could tell that you all appreciated and had no problem with me posting so much. 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.

Jazzy February 19

Why you all are waiting….go to unclaimed property by your state and who knows you just may FIND some extra dough that you never knew you had…I DID in Texas and I placed my claim form and got the check in the mail within a week.

Google the link unclaimed property by state

Hi Nykky,

Sorry I am on my way out the door…..will check back later in the day after 6pm to see how you all are doing. Going to the lake for a BBQ after church service…still looking for my new car, taking my time want to find the right one for the right price….so tell me what ALL of you are planning to do with YOUR money when it comes…?

We all would love to hear some good happy news and plans as we try to pass the time by…please share if you don’t mind…

I feel so bad since I got my money on Friday….:-(. So, I am really waiting on Tuesday and pray more will see a deposit. So unfair for IRS/BANKS to do this over a FEDERAL holiday…so cruel…crazy year uh?

Have a BLESSED SUNDAY…

Vanessa February 19

Filed 2/9 got accepted 2/10… do you know when I should see an update?

Reply

Jazzy February 19

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…?

Tam February 19

Jazzy,

Ok I’m thinking I want a CRV something like that a small suv or a Jeep. Yes I know Savannah is really nice good pace to go for a weekend a just relax and shop. We are going to have to keep in touch how was the BBQ?

Tam February 19

Hey Jazzy

Thanks for sticking it out even though you have yours that’s very kind appreciate you during this whole process when I come to Texas I’m going to have to take you to lunch I live in Atlanta. And big thanks to Andy the creator of this site it’s been a very helpful tool. Will update on Tuesday with any updates going to call the bank and check and let Anyone that has chase know what they stated.

Hey Jazzy

I going to buy a car been investigating and looking for the last 2 months the one I really wanted sold this weekend so I have to find something else since the money didn’t come but I’m blessed going to stop worrying and be excited my time is coming in just days gives me more time to keep looking have to find the positive. What kind of car do you have in mind Jazzy?

Jazzy February 19

Tam – Yes, come visit me anytime. I have a brother who lives in Savannah. We have a lot of events going on all the time, so you will enjoy yourself for sure. Lunch sound gooooooooood. :-).

Tonda – look like all (3) of us in getting cars yeahhhhhhhh. I am an Altima/Maxima type of gal. I was looking at the 2017 Versa 1.6 S, the price is only $9,988 but (5 speed)…ugh. 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.

What are you two looking at purchasing…?

No Worries February 19

We was so glad to get off the path act message,,,and now we got our 2nd bar and got a date ,,,,be glad you have a date of the 22nd or 23rd it hasn’t even got here yet, there’s others that would be very happy to see the two bars back,,,it’s only a couple days ,,,

Alexusb February 19

I spoke to someone that did the same like us and they said no worries and we will get it the date our wmr say. She told me she been filing with them for 4 years and she always get it on the date they say and it takes longer because of the fees they take out. So I’m feeling pretty good and I’m going to wait until the 22nd before I fly out to Cali and speak to a rep myself. Goodnight all

Anne February 18

Ok, I see. Be patient. I know it’s hard. Hopefully the refunds are on there way. Maybe they just haven’t updated the system yet. Just trying to remain hopeful. But, I do understand your concern. If you call tomorrow, let us know what happens. just keep us posted. And good luck! Hoping for us all!

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?

LOL…

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 :-)

Reply

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…

Thank you for sharing this inspirational message….Love you as a sista Nykky. Keep being who YOU are and helping others…no one can judge you but 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..

Justin,

Contact IRS, hopefully that will ease your mind this morning and let you know WHY you did not make the cut this morning. Let’s hope it is nothing that serious and can be resolve quickly so you can get your refund within a week or so.

I will keep you in my prayers.

Good luck…

Pretty Brown Eyes February 18

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.

Reply

Tonda February 18

Pretty Brown Eyes, If it still says still processing you need to call asap. Because it should’ve said it has been processed. So please call asap

Nell February 18

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…

Reply

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.

Pretty Brown Eyes February 18

Reply

Jazzy February 17

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…

Jazzy February 17

Ok, I’m really going to bed now; with all my grammar errors and typos…geez…lol.

Nv February 17

This site has been a big help and I have a question….I called the IRS and they said my funds are due to be released on the 23rd. I’m so excited but how long after it is released will I expect a direct deposit? Also can it be released earlier than the projected release date they gave me? 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…

Congrats…

Pretty Brown Eyes February 17

Jazzy I see all types of codes. Also St the top it states that a minus sign indicates a credit amount that o should be receiving.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

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

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.

1-800-913-6050
Toll free phone number for recording offices: 1-800-913-4170.
CENTRALIZED LIEN OPERATION.

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. 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.”

Hope we all come back together NEXT YEAR and stress ALL OVER AGAIN (TOGETHER)…LOL. Enjoy this FORUM because everyone was so kind, respectful and supported to one another. THANK YOU ALL FOR THAT….and making this an awesome GROUP.

Thanks so much Jazzy. But it also had a date by the cycle numbers. It was 02/27/2017

Reply

Jazzy February 17

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 :-).

Pretty Brown Eyes February 17

I actually received my transcripts in the mail today.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Oh, then you want actually have the most current update since it took 5-7 or more days to get to you. So, that one maybe moot; don’t worry ok, if you get a DDD tomorrow nothing else matters…

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….

I got my deposit already and right now the WMR is still saying the msg. Your return is still be processed…smh.

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.

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

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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…

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!!

Eric February 17

I did h&r block to I got accepted the 28th I hope we see it soon

Samatha Watkins February 17

I filed on the 17th of Jan. IRS accepted it on thea20th of Jan and I have received no status update. I go to h&r block every year. I am the only one to claim my kids. I don’t lie about income. Is it true if you didn’t receive any info by now you’re up for a letter?

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!

Nena February 17

On wmr says it states is it being processed I called IRS yesterday rep didn’t want to provide any information saying I called before and there is no error and I should update on wmr on the 18

Nena February 17

Jazzy !!!!!!!
I called the IRS with the number you provided and talked to a nice lady who just got tonite and said direct deposit for 1/23 yay makes me feel better
Any chance I’ll receive it sooner
Thank you so much for your help

Justin Johnson February 17

My returns accepted on 1/23, and here it is, Feb 17th and nothing. Booo!

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Justin, have you attempted to call? If not give them until in the morning, if nothing something is wrong. At least they are open Sat and Monday to demand answers. You can call the transcript number and ask the person to look up return and tell you if you have a DDD… 800-908-9946.

I am betting you will get an update on the WMR tonight or in the morning…good luck. I am pulling for you…ok.

Hey jazzy I got dd for the 22nd but I checked turbo bank and they didn’t received the funds yet and I’m nervous because i have the prepaid reload card and I see everybody see something pending and I don’t please help should I be worried

Reply

Nykky February 17

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. As of right now mine has not shown up at their site page. Here is their link in case you need it taxpayer.sbtpg.com. I hope this help. Keep me posted

Reply

Alexusb February 17

Hey nykky I will keep you posted!! I just got off the phone with turbo tax and checked my bank online and as of now I have nothing posted from both sides. You keep me posted as well

Nykky February 17

I sure will. Nothing as of yet

Jazzy February 17

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.

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

antinique February 17

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

Alexusb February 17

Thanks jazzy your such a big help!!! I will give them a call tomorrow if I don’t see my refund. I will go and google that now and see if anyone had received theirs. Thanks again your truly appreciated

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…see you all later…

Hey Tonda,

Thank you, did find one today, but I am going to take my time with so many good deals out there around tax refund time. Everyone wants your business…lol.

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.

Nykky February 17

Hey all had a hard laugh at an IRS scammer who reached out to me today. Be careful and beware! I can say this about the PATH, I learned from the wonderful Jazzy IRS always do paper trail!! The scammer got mad at me for not cooperating! He lied to me so I lied and said I work for IRS! Well Lol!!!

Code 846 on transcript with a 3-6-2017 date what is that

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.

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.

FJB February 17

I called this morning and told the 23rd as well.
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.
Have a good Friday and weekend everyone.

amber February 17

FJB i dont think so if they were they wouldnt ask us are name date of birth and are ssn who filed with ur bank account number and how much ur refund was just to script the 23rd

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 :-)

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.

Update: I did NOT get any movement on the WMR, but I have a pending deposit in my bank account this morning. I checked my Transcript and I have the code 846 Refund Issued 3-6-17.

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.

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…

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.

jwolf February 17

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!

Jazzy February 17

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! I was hoping I’d get the deposit today on my paycard, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. S’alright, though! Just knowing it’s actually going to be here soon is good enough for me.

Does anyone know why the bars are gone now saying they have received your return and it is being processed?

Catherine Faccin February 17

Jazzy, clarification please, I am old and really tired (sarcasm) processed is good? Processing, no so much?..

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Hi Catherine, no you are not old…you are just wiser and better…lol. If you had the PATH message before he finally got the heck out of our way…you would have gotten the msg “processed”, now it could be saying “processing” because it is updating for tomorrow huge system update. I wouldn’t worry especially if you filed before Feb 5th and did not get a letter or anything…but to be sure I would call, trust me they actually can see your DDD in the system…and it most likely will be in your bank by 3pm or tomorrow before you even see that WMR bar move…99% chance of that..lol.

Here the number (800) 829-0582 ext. 652 try my WMR instructed me to call, don’t recall the code. Tell them hey, I got a hardship please tell me something so I can make arrangements…gf you have to be soooooooooo persuasive and persistent…keep calling until you get one of the Rep to NOT follow protocols…lol.

Prissy February 17

Hey everyone!! I’ve been following ur comments for days now and u all keep me so updated!! I’m getting the your refund is being processed, have been for 2 days now, I NEED my money like everyone else lol!! Anyone know if I will see a ddd
Saturday??

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Hi Prissy,

Per IRS yes a majority will see DDD today and tomorrow. If you haven’t gotten a letter by now, you should be good to go. If you want to ease your mind, please call them NOW and see if you can get a nice rep to actually give you your DDD for tomorrow. Trust me, they have that info today…(800) 829-0582 ext. 652. Just tell them WMR instructed you to call, you can’t remember what it said or the code…

Hope you get results…keep me posted ok.

have good day

Monee February 17

I checked the WMR website and before it had a bar now it has no bars and it’s says we have received your refund and it is being processed. What does that mean?

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Monee, it most likely mean they are updating and pushing out DDD’s. Check throughout the day, that is a good sign. There is a lot of traffic both on the WMR and Transcript, they have a deadline of tomorrow to release these funds…

At least if nothing happens; you will be able to get them on the phone tomorrow and Monday….but I am going to send some positive vibes your way…that you will have great news by the end of day/morning.

Hang in there ok

Hi Greg, first of all let me extend my warm and sincere wishes to you and your wife for your new edition to the family and HAPPY Belated ANNIVERDSAY….you are such a romantic…Valentine’s Day…smart man I say :-). So, you got your state but not your Federal?

Don’t worry ok, please if you are able to look at your transcript or call them to ask if they can fax it or tell you the status of your pending refund. If that don’t work, then call them over and over again today until someone gives you the answer you deserve that long awaited DDD. 800-908-9946. (transcript number) IRS (800) 829-0582 ext. 652 try my little (trick) to get a rep to pull it up….WMR instucted you to call, but you don’t recall the code it gave you…

Keep me posted and let me know….also keep a keen eye on that bank account today, until tomorrow morning. I think you will be a happy camper like many of us…real soon. The dreadful wait is almost over.

Good luck,

Those who do not get an update, at least IRS will be opened all day Sat and Mon to demand answers.

I pray you all will…

antinique February 16

If I filed CTC and path and eitc and actc when should I get my refund it just said processing this morning Feb 16 and I got accepted January 26 but the IRS tax lady said some changes may be made Saturday Feb 18 meaning people who filed those credits should get there’s back sooner then Feb 27 should be feb 22 or 24 or sooner you never know

Reply

Jazzy February 17

antinique,

Wow, you were in the first week, so you should been in the first batches, but it appears they are pushing them out in no systematic order…in the morning if not by end of day hopefully you will see an update on the WMR or DDD.

You can always call to ease your mind and see if you can get a nice rep to tell you the date.

Good luck…be persistent.

Megz February 16

Talked to IRS he looked at my stuff and said basically because so many on path that basically on hold and said keep checking back and it will update grrrrr so little info….. I filed and was accepted on 1/23 and had path act…. Now wmr says they have received it and is being processed!?! Is this good news???

Reply

Nicole February 16

Same here got accepted 1/23@1030am still nothing

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Megz, that is good news and yes it will be updating throughout the day until tomorrow. Transcript updates 24/7 Real Time….so keep check the bank and for that code…

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.

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!

Yep Pretty,

I was in the same boat with as you. I bank with American Express. They always have my direct deposits in sooner. So i knew I would get my deposit sooner than the IRS thought, but I had no idea it would be today after just speaking with someone this morning that gave me a 02/22 date. Those refunds are coming all. I am excited for all of us.

I talk to 3 different IRS reps the last one said that they don’t know dates at all he said the system isn’t going to tell them the exact dates until Saturday and we can call on Saturday to get exact dates but should see it on WMR by then so the 22nd date there giving because its on the script 2 days after the holiday so even if no date check on Saturday and if you don’t have a date then you can call and you will get answers. Love you Jazzy you been such a god scent and blessing with the exact nphone numbers and things to say friend for life. So he said they can’t even see any dates until Saturday that’s why there saying the 27th latest cause they don’t know themselves exactly. That explains why none of them are on the same page.

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Morning Tam, love you to gf….I don’t think anyone will be waiting till the 27. If they are updating on Sat, the money is probably it the bank today / in the morning. For sure by Tues/Wed next week.

Before you even get an update the money is already on its way….it just up to the bank to post and process. The WMR is always after the fact…

I truly believe they are going to get as many people there money this weekend to start spending. A report came out that businesses are complaining that this PATH law has an affect on their bottom line for their 1st quarter reporting. They were complaining as much as we were…so next year, I think IRS is going to have a better plan…

Business and Consumers both got a HIT in this PATH mess…

I am educated and by no means look like a HAG or bed ridden old person…smh. I did nothing to those girls…makes me don’t want to come here no more…just for those comments.

But I am going to try to hang in here until all my buddies get there refunds. Yes, the nice and smart ones came over here and a few may not know how to find us to join.

Glad I am no longer over there to be subjected to those ugly remarks about me. So sad…people are like that over the internet… I am going to try not to let it bother me; it is embarrassing to read those nasty remarks…when you know it is not who you are at all…

I will chat with you all tomorrow…kinda of sad right now, I didn’t deserve that at all…I wish Andy would go and DELETE those posts…so others do not paint an image of me that is not true.

Take care…good luck everyone.

Sigh…not happy with my state.

So called to check my State refund, because it showed a credit on my account and now it says 0 balance. I told rep its been four weeks and the number kept changing and I just want to make sure there is no issue. Well she looked into it and this was the result.

It looks as though the balance says 0 now because we are sending out your refund check.

To which I replied, sending a check? I signed up for direct deposit.

Response: Can you please hold?

Sure

Ms it looks as though we are mailing a check to you on Tuesday 02/21/2017. There is nothing we can do to stop this process and correct it. I have notified the accounting department and they will make sure this mistake does not happen to anyone else. We can’t help you, but we will correct the mistake for future refunds on others.

LOL just thought I would post for any Oregonians on this thread and would like state info. If you get your direct deposit as you requested and not mailed by mistake….I suppose that means I am to thank according to the Rep Haha.

Hope things are not too hectic with all these calls, I know a lot of people like myself has been waiting so long to get answers…hope you understand this wait put me in a difficult position and I really need any insight you can give me.

Michelle February 16

Hey jazzy was just wondering where you get the 846 code. I do not see it. It just says my refund is being processed.

Reply

Jazzy February 16

Michelle, you get that from your transcript here is the link you can order online, mail or via phone. You can also call call 800-908-9946 and request them to FAX it to you instead of having it mail. Tell them you need it for school or bank loan…not just for personal usage. ok.

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-return-transcript-types-and-ways-to-order-them?

Once you can view it the last code you will see on your “ACCOUNT” transcript which is the one you want to order will have the code 846 that mean you are done and your refund has been released to your bank account. If you can order your Return as well, then you are done processing…but that don’t mean you can’t still be under a review…the codes will also let you know if a letter is being sent out or a freeze is on your account for whatever…

Reply

Jazzy February 16

Debra, that is very odd. I heard of being off by 2 days, but not 7 days. You may want to try calling them again today and see if you can find out what the hold is. (800) 829-0582 ext. 652, just tell them you got a code and was instructed to call them and try to order your transcript via phone, mail or online. That would give you some indication that you are being processed…but not what the issues may be….if any. good luck

Reply

Debra February 16

I have tried ordering my transcript with no luck :( which to me means that it hasn’t even been processed. I used a “Tax Service” this year, I’ve learned my lesson and will continue to do my own.

That’s great! I never thought of that.
I actually just got off of the phone with them again and was told that it’s still in process. She told me I didn’t have to keep calling…lol…that there were no errors and to give it the 21 dys. She did also say that I’m looking at the 24th. She stated that it’s normal for WMR not to have any updates or be none at all, which is weird to me but ok. Guess I feel a bit better.

Sweetb February 16

Called IRS again. I said I was told by another rep if I got PATH message that meant I was approved, but now it says processing. I heard there was a hardship I could file to get refund. She was rude and very abruptly said there are no hardships. To which I replied….Look I really need some help. My electricity due to missed work from winter storm is going to be shut off in 5 days. If I can’t get a hardship, I really need to be able to talk to electric company and give them something as to when I am expecting my refund, so that they will work with me. Then I begged…lol please, please I am just looking for any help, anyone to help.

She put me on hold, came back and said it looks like you are scheduled for a 22nd DDD. I said is that the generic response for all EIC ACTC people. She got very rude and said maam, we are talking about your tax return no one else. Although she was very rude, she was also helpful I guess, since she gave me a DDD date.

My bank always processes fast. I generally get my direct deposit from payroll two days earlier than co-workers. So I am hoping this means I will get my deposit sooner. Is my DDD date when they think it will hit my account or when they will actually release funds?

Thanks, but my question is, is the DDD she gave me the date they will release funds or the date they expect my direct deposit to hit my bank. Anyone?

Jazzy February 16

Sweetb, the 22nd is the date it should reach your bank account. Monday being a holiday it may not get there sooner than the 22nd but it should be in your account for sure no later than the 24th. Depends on your bank, if they are fast you may get it by Tuesday…they are going to release it by Saturday, so anything is possible…congrats :-)

Sweetb February 16

Thanks. As I stated, I always get my paycheck deposited into my account 2 days earlier than my co-workers. So I have hope I will see that DDD this Saturday. Fingers crossed.

FJB February 16

OK. Thanks. Just wanted to gauge the DDD based on when you sent in your return. Mine was accepted 1/13 so I’m hoping mine is soon as well.

Reply

Jazzy February 16

FJB, when I talked to the Rep, I mentioned we were in the test batches so we should have been the 1st group, but it dosen’t seem like it is working that way, because a lot of people with 201704 has gotten their 846. Maybe because I am a weekly mines won’t hit until Saturday…which is all good, as long as I get it on the 22nd next week I am cool…\

So, let’s see between us how it turns out tomorrow or Saturday since we have the exact same date of acceptance.

Just concern that the electricity company will shut my electricity soon. Anyway, to much unnecessary information there. Hahaha. Thank you again for your time.

amber February 16

Jazzy February 16

FJB February 16

So is this processing as far as verifying the return is accurate or actually processing the direct deposit to your bank account?
I am unable to view my transcript online so I cant tell if I have the 846(?) payed out code. The paper copy I had sent for and received does show I have a minus/credit due.
I originally was accepted 1/13 and have had no messages or codes besides PATH, 152 and now the new processing code from today on WMR.

Reply

Jazzy February 16

FJB, I was accepted on 1/13 as well and I was told no doubt we will be getting a DDD by this weekend and a deposit date for the 22nd. We will find out soon, keep me posted ok

Reply

FJB February 16

Hope they gave you correct info. Guess we’ll know soon.
Thanks Jazzy.

amy February 16

ok so my wmr no longer has the path it now says my tax return is being processed

Reply

Jazzy February 16

If it is taking longer than usual to get it…keep this in mind:

A slight confusion about when the Internal Revenue Service will release the money created a logjam on the agency’s phone lines and at tax-related businesses.
Panicked citizens went to the IRS website, causing it to briefly crash. The mix-up set in with the notification the IRS sent to early-bird tax filers who have completed and sent in their returns. The notice informs them not to expect their tax refund until at least Feb. 15.

Approximately 15 million tax payers nationwide, who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC)

amber February 16

if it says being processed mean where done waiting for a date or what does it mean jazzy

Reply

Jazzy February 16

amber, yes we are just waiting for our DDD…the only ones they need to be concern is the ones who do not see a DDD Saturday morning….but the good part is IRS will be open all day Saturday and Monday to take those calls as to why….hope the majority will be happy campers this weekend. Even tho we may not see the funds…just getting that DDD we know it is on the way…

jwolf February 16

if you filed through turbotax you can call them and they can tell you if you have been approved or not they say they cant see if you have a ddd but you can google the bank that turbotax uses and go on there to see if your money has been deposited in there yet. it goes to that bank so turbotax can get there fees out then it is deposited to your personal bank

Reply

Nykky February 16

Hey jwolf! I did call TurboTax thanks for the suggestion! We should hopefully be seeing $$$$ and or dates very soon!!

bizzle February 16

So if mine says processing I should call and ask them if they sent me a letter that way if they did I can go ahead and get something situated or I need to verify myself is that correct because I’ve been on the phone with them since 8 o’clock this morning and is now 10:12 a.m. my time I’m going to get this stuff situated I’m tired of talking to the IRS almost everyday everything is accepted and processing I was told that I would get info on the 18th then I would get my refund on the 22nd – 24th or 27th no later

Reply

Jazzy February 16

Bizzle, did you call this number (800) 829-0582 ext. 652, then dial the ext? It usually takes less than 30 minutes, if high volume of calls. You are just trying to be proactive to confirm nothing is pending or holding up your refund. If you can order your transcript online you will be able to see codes that will indicate an issue or letter is being sent. If you see code 846 you are good to go.

Jazzy February 16

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).

Hi jazzy you think I’ll be getting my Dr before the 27 I filed on 05/02 and got approved same day had a received bar on wmr 2 days later disappeared and a few days had the path message and the topic 152 this morning 2/16 I checked wmr and it’s says it’s processing and shows my refund on the bottom to the left. It says to check again tomorrow. You think thats a good sign?

Jazzy February 16

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. 1st Rep Ms. Camp 1009211075 – 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 1002900317 (miss digit they say it so fast)…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…ot HOLDs because they should have already been issued.

THE END….

I ordered my 2016 Return Transcript online and got nothing regarding a refund date, so then I ordered my 2016 Account Transcript (not Record of Account Transcript) and this was on the bottom. Looks as though they’re going to process mine on 2/20/17 and issue my refund on 3/6/17 provided there’s no errors on my return. Just to make sure this was accurate, I pulled my 2015 Account Transcript to view the refund date and compare it to when I actually got my refund last year…It was almost accurate. It said my refund issued 2/15/15 but I actually received it earlier than that date. I hope this helps!

Morning Twam, you are very welcome. So, glad you found out you were getting a letter. I would call them back and ask exactly what it is they are needing and get it FAX today, don’t wait on that letter you will only be delayed even further. They open faxes within 2 business days upon receipt. It states that in the Manuel. But they will tell you give them 10 days before you call to see if they got it….but you can call in 3-5 and it will show in their system…

FAX TODAY….I want my gf…to get her money before 2018…lol.

Hi James! If you don’t have EIC or the ACTC and it’s been over 21 days then you should call the IRS.

Ok so tomorrow marks the update and more release of refunds and possible updates on wmr? Once again sorry for asking questions that may have already been asked and answered, but, what is possibly expected from the 16 onward? Is there any insight for those who filed early and those who have been able to successfully receive their transcripts before the IRS sent to poop?

Reply

Jazzy February 15

Nykky, if you are 100% sure nothing could possibly delay your refund or cause a review such as they waiting on form, w-2, need to verify id. Only way you can find that out is to call them. If you don’t get a DDD by the 18th…then you know there may be an issue and delay…call them in the morning. Just because they completed your return and you got the PATH and ordered transcript does not mean you are safe from being pulled for review. Don’t assume ok; best to find out…so you don’t be disappointed later…. I called (4x) so I am very confident that I will see my DDD perhaps as early as tomorrow and a deposit by Friday or the latest next week. They all confirmed I was good to go…

So good luck and goodnight ok.

Check back in tomorrow to see who won the lottery…heheheheheh…

Born Tired February 15

I filed feb 1 and was accepted feb 2, thru turbo tax and with direct deposit. No additional child credit or eic and the only change I had was an additional w-2 from a new job i started and left. I have seen no changes on wmr, still just shows recieved, and when I called the woman wouldn’t give me any info no matter how much I begged. Not sure what would be the hold up but I am praying to see a deposit by the 18th.

Check back in later tonight have an errand to run. Really not any more updates until after the 18th. We are just in a wait and see mode for now. If anyone wants to double check to ease their mind I highly recommend call IRS for your individual tax return in case something is wrong, you want to know sooner rather than later…right?

Just call this number: (800) 829-0582 ext. 652 – You may still get different answers, just call back and talk to a 2nd rep to compare both statements and decide which one sound more accurate.

Good luck the WMR will be back to normal tomorrow….so depends on the message you get will determine where you stand in this massive release over the next few days…

Hoping for the best for us all…

I talk to the IRS today she said today was the hold release and that tomorrow WMR will have an update for us she stated that people with the debit prepaid card and hr block emerald cards see there refund quickly but if it is direct deposit to your bank it takes how ever long the bank takes she also said it might take up to the 27th to see your refund but they say that so you don’t keep calling them.

Reply

Jazzy February 15

Right Tam, it appears that is the script that was given. When I ask will it be first fliers, she pretty much was saying that was not included in the script to tell us how they was going to start processing the millions in what order. So, I guess we just have to figure that out once people start saying they got a DDD or Deposit or 846 code on their transcript. Then we will know if it is in order by earliest filer or all over the place…

Jazzy February 15

Wow, I thought I was lost…got nervous for a minute; thought you all was hiding from me because I talked to much…lol. Andy gave us a makeover..lol. Glad to see you all again :-). Got an update for you guys. I spoke to IRS again around 2pm. She was a sweet old lady name Ms. Perry, she wanted to talk to me all day, actually I had to make her get off the phone and go back to work..hehehehehhehehe.

Here’s the scoop. I ask her these specific questions:

1. Can you look at my return and tell me if anything is wrong that will prevent releasing my return over the next (4) days. Answer: Nothing, your return looks good.
2. When are you releasing it? Answer: We are releasing them today started at 7:am, check the WMR starting tomorrow thru Saturday for a DDD.
3. Will I get it before the 27th? Answer, it all depends on the Treasury and the banks process; but yes you could see it in your account before the 27th.
4. Do you know if they will process as first in and first out? Answer: We did not get any instruction regarding that but I would think the earlier you filed the sooner you would get it.
5. When you get the PATH msg do that mean you are Processed. Answer: She ask me, do you have the PATH msg now? I said yes, she said then you that mean the return is complete and is processed.
6. So, nothing is going to hold me back? No, you will see updates on the WMR starting tomorrow…till the 18th.

With that being said I am going to just chill out and wait until the 18th before I freak out again. I will post any updates when I see any movement.

NOW: If anyone know they have CHANGES from the last previous (3) years; or offsets, Obamcare Form, new address, new dependents, educational credits, owe IRS. Then you need to contact them because all refunds with the PATH message will NOT be automatically release, they can still be under some review or hold for whatever reasons.

Only you will know or have some concerns if you had any of the possibilities listed above that could cause some delay or concern. You should be on the phone now until 7pm checking for yourself to ease your mind.

If you don’t have any special issues – then you should be fine and will be getting a DDD by the 18th. Only way your refund will be deposited by the 27th or after will be due to processing.

EXCERPT:
The IRS said Tuesday that the page will be updated with projected deposit dates for early EITC and ACTC refund filers a few days after Wednesday, February 15. Before February 18, some taxpayers may see a projected deposit date or an intermittent message that the IRS is processing their return.

Due to differing time frames with financial institutions, weekends and the Presidents Day holiday, these refunds likely will not start arriving in bank accounts or on debit cards until the week of February 27, if there are no processing issues with the return and the taxpayer chose direct deposit.

Disclaimer: I AM NOT AN IRS TAX EXPERT; I JUST ACT LIKE ONE….LOL.

Wow, Jazzy!!! You rock! Thanks for the great updates cause I was surely wondering what is going on. You may not be an expert but you act better than the rest and much better than the best of them!

Jazzy February 15

Lol Nykky, ahhhhhhh thank you, you going to give me a BIG HEAD..lol.

But real talk…there will be a lot of movement tomorrow morning thru Saturday. IRS is processing expecting to process over 40 million eic/actc returns. If you don’t believe me check out their statistical report for 2-17 they update on their website each month.

Jazzy February 15

Well thank you Nykky, if I ever go back and work for the IRS again, I am coming back to this site and post my work phone number, fax and email address; so all my buddies on here will be able to call me directly if they had any problems with their tax return. I would personally fix it right then and manually push your return thru and with no supervisor authorization. gf you will have your return in 2 days (48) hours it will be in your bank account..hehehehehehhee. It will just be our little secret..lol.

I don’t care if you give my # to all your friends, family, enemies…cause I work for the taxpayers best interest, not politics; especially if Trump is still President, geez I just may throw in an extra 2,000 just because I can…lol.

You might need that to bail me out of jail on bond tho…so don’t spend it to quickly…lmbo.

Hello Jazzy. I hope that I receive mine as well. I recently did just have my first child last year in July and I called to see if any information may have been needed and I was told that I would receive a letter if they did in the mail. Also I am looked at my NYS return and it stated this:

We received your return and it may require further review. This may result in your New York State return taking longer to process than your federal return. No further information is available at this time.

I just hope and pray that one comes. At this point I don’t care which one it is but I prefer my Federal. Also I too have received the PATH message and Tax Topic 152 and to check back after February 15 for my personalized update. I tell you this tax year has been an interesting one. So all give thanks to those commuting all of these tax frauds. But I appreciate all of you taking your time out to comment and post about the issue we having been having with this.

Reply

Jazzy February 16

Hi Brown Eyes, that is not good news, have you call about your federal return yet? I bet it may be under review because of your newborn. See what the WMR is saying when you get a chance; think about calling it the morning and let me know what you find out.

I am keeping you in my thoughts and hope for the best….we all been waiting way to long to see some action…I think we are about too…

There is movement…yeah.

For those of you who have the PATH MSG to check after the 15th and you haven’t gotten any letters by now…let’s give it until the 18th to see what happens. Those who have NOT gotten the PATH should be on the phone NOW with IRS to find out why the holdup. Perhaps you can get it resolve. Anyone pass the 21 days, can tell IRS to do a 911 request form for an advocate to call you to help resolve this issue if you can’t…with an advocate IRS has 2 weeks to release the hold.

Dec and Jun, for (Christmas and Summer)so by the time you are broke, you have another check on the way…I got ya back. No need to efile a tax return either, just submit how much money you feel you deserve for putting up with crap on your job or taking care of your kids or just for dealing with life issues period..lol.

Hope I make it to the 2nd check I will be issuing in June before I am FIRED :-). All good things come to and end…right? lol.

This number never failed me and I always got in this early within 10-15 minutes. (800) 829-0582 ext. 652. You have to keep calling until you get a sane REP…some can be RUDE and there is no need for that at all…don’t understand why, if they don’t like there job…LEAVE. Next time ask for a supervisor and report them…

Don’t get discourage ok, you will have your update by tomorrow the latest….heck you might see a pending deposit today…call the transcript line and ask them to pull it up for you and let you know if they see a code 846 or ask if they can fax it because you really need it…l 800-908-9946.

Good luck, anything I can do to help…I am here for you. Ok….

Reply

Jazzy February 17

Brown eye, 20170605 cycle codes = Year (2017); Week (6) Feb 5th thru 11th (when you filed/accepted). Day (05) = The day of week up were updated a Thursday (Feb 9th). This makes you weekly filer. You were updated on Friday the 10th can should have been able to access your transcript at that point. Saturday morning the 11th. You would have gotten updated with a DDD for Feb 15th.

Weekly get up dated on the WMR on Saturdays for DDD on Wednesday of the upcoming week. Since the PATH screwed us all up’ the cycle dates were ALL OFF. This is what should have happened in normal processing…

You should no doubt get a DDD in the morning MASSIVE UPDATE for Feb 22nd. Check our bank until it closed. If nothing you most likely we get your refund that Tuesday/Wed the latest.

Are the codes on your transcript 150, 806 (withholding if applicable) 766, 768? The very last code on your transcript to close out the 2017 TAX YEAR will be that 846 Refund Issued: Which mean you refund has been released from the treasury and is on its way to your bank…for processing.

I think you will be a happy camber in the morning with millions of other taxpayers.

Good luck, can’t wait to see all the POST’s stating they also got a DDD…:-).

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.

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…

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, 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 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…

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.

Good Luck, sleep well – wake up to awesome news ok.

I’m sorry but where would the code be at????

Jazzy February 17

Brown Eyes, on your “ACCOUNT” Transcript you will see several codes. 846 will the the very LAST code on the transcript closing out TAX YEAR 2017.

Jazzy February 17

Brown Eyes, I am going to pray you and everyone see that long waited DDD….of course I have no control of the outcome, but I am going to think positive and claim it for you all…I hope I am not disappointed and you and the others still waiting don’t get it…ugh :-(.

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

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Brown Eyes,

Ouch, those are horrible codes. I could not find a 250. 971 had a lot of different meanings. 570 is a Freeze/Hold. State possible offsetting…did you call the offset line to see if they deducted something: Here is the number.

(800) 304-3107 call now and see if it stated offset “paid” and give you a DDD of 22nd or 23rd, if so, then you are done and that is your DDD.

Also, google what I did below for the list of description of ALL your codes.

IRS CODES ON TRANSCRIPT….that will give you a complete list of definitions. You can google each Code separately and see if they will come up….

Hope they have fixed those issues by tomorrow; if not; you won’t be seeing a DDD ….no letter in the mail? uhmmmm weird. IRS should have told you what was going on behind the scene. They knew ….

Reply

Jazzy February 18

Look like IRS just processed a letter and that 2-27-17 date next to 971 means that is the day you should receive it in the mail, but don’t wait for it…that will only delay you further…if IRS hasn’t verify the issues thru all the varies data bases or made phone calls to match /verify whatever is holding or delaying your return from being released by now.

A lot of Letters are going out, you might just have to verify your identity via phone then you will be released right away…

Pretty Brown Eyes February 18

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.

Reply

Jazzy February 18

ok, yes you do ( a lot of answers). Hopefully they will tell you what the letter contains; so you can fax the info asap to release the hold…

Good luck, let me know what you find out ok.

Good night…try not to worry! Be on that phone as soon as they open…I think it was 9am.

Yeah…..

lol, I know right… wonder why they are going to come up with next year…smh. Even the businesses started complianing their 1st qtr profits were down because of that darn PATH Law…Tmobile was leading the pack…lol.

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.

We better prepare and brace ourselves for next year….:-(

Yes she was extremely excited there. I couldn’t go back to sleep either. Lol… I actually have found more gray hair yesterday which I am going to file next year cause I am going to do some major deductibles and itemizing just for the path and mental stress! Lol jk. But I will add my dye!!

cracking up over here…there you go (itemize) them to death.

Reply

Jazzy February 18

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.

Nykky February 18

Wow.. that is a lot of control they have over many lives and more…

If you only knew the extent IRS will go….I read where people went “underground” for their safety due to owing IRS. Owing them is like owing the Mafia. If it got to the extreme for me; I would just do the jail time…lol.

Alexusb, my ddd is 2/22 and I had my taxes done thru TurboTax and have yet to receive my deposit

Reply

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.

Jazzy February 19

Renee,

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.

Jazzy February 19

CRV or Jeep is a good choice. I was thinking of a jeep for traveling / extra space.

Had a nice time, it was nice to get out and enjoy the 84 temp we had yesterday and 76 today. It about to start raining, so I left…but brought me a couple of plates to go. Hate cooking and love me some BBQ…lol.

Thanks for asking…when everyone get their money, wow it is going to feel real good all that stress will be gone.

Can’t wait for all you guys to see that money…

I wouldn’t be here right now talking and sharing with each of you and sharing this years tax experience if not for Him. Honestly when everything fled and left He has always been faithful and true, even now. I am a true solider for the kingdom!! I need help to save the poem!!! Lol!!!

Jazzy February 19

Nykky,

This is another one. See it Thru… (google these poems) or cut and paste to email.

When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!

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.

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.

Reply

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.

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.
