Will the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Delay my 2019-2020 Tax Refund

(This is a live article that is updated regularly) As the Coronavirus spreads globally and roils governments and countries we are already seeing major hits to the real economy that will takes US into a recession in 2020. While stock markets are falling rapidly (don’t panic and sell!), people should start expecting governments to focus on battling this deadly virus. In fact the Congress and the White House have already passed a massive stimulus package, unemployment insurance extensions/boosts and additional stimulus payments.

However because of these new Coronavirus relief programs it is also likely major government agencies, like the IRS, will shift focus and resources to execute on these programs to battle the fallout from the spread of the virus. This may mean slower processing times for tax returns and tax refunds for those entitled to one. No official word on this from the IRS , but would surprise me if there was no impact.

The IRS has announced, under the national emergency provision, that they will postpone the April 15 tax-payment deadline for millions of individuals, giving Americans an additional 90 days to pay their 2019 income-tax bills in an unprecedented move intended to ease the economic pain inflicted by the coronavirus. The delay is available to people who owe $1 million or less. This push may also affect 2019 tax refund payments.

The latest data from the IRS shows almost 60 million tax returns have been filed with refunds averaging $3,064. A Treasury Department spokesperson has said that there are currently no delays at this point, but is a fluid situation.

Note – the IRS has temporarily closed all Taxpayer Assistance Centers and discontinued face-to-face service throughout the country until further notice. The IRS is continuing to process tax returns, issue refunds and help taxpayers to the greatest extent

    Filed for my son on 03/07/2020 and accepted 03/07/2020. Lost bars on wheres my refund on 03/14/2020. Received ID verification letter 04/01/2020. It will not let him verify online so he has to call. However, phone lines are down. He was able to claim himself this year so he would qualify for the stimulus check…however, since he cannot call anyone they will probably go off of his 2019 taxes and he will lose out on the Stimulus check. Plus it says if he can’t verify his ID 30 days after he received that letter they may not be able to get him his taxes? He is a First Responder who could really use his money. This situation is bad enough for our healthcare workers. He shouldn’t have to worry about trying to get HIS money back. Everyone should be pushed through this year in my opinion. Nobody should be waiting. Especially since there is no way to contact the IRS currently.

      Sorry to say, IRS don’t care about anyone. Like there website saying during covid19, that where help everyone, sure. I sent a email to a Senator in California about the problems with the IRS, holding everyone refunds this year, and because of the covid19, they should released the refunds to everyone this year, and take harder steps next time the people filed there return. If the IRS care, they should have release all the refunds when the bill was signed. The senator never reply back, its been about two weeks. Hope everyone gets there refunds soon, and stay safe from covid19 .

    We also got pulled for a 60 day review. We filed on 1/27 I called it’s 2/26 and they said we was pulled for a income review the letter would go out 3/09.;now the Corona virus has closed everything. My husband lost his job we care about to lose everything and on top of that I have to take in my 3 year old grandson. I was diagnosed with stage 3 Breast cancer and can’t afford my insurance anymore. We have nothing and the it’s is holding our money. Now with the Corona virus it could take forever to get what we so desperately need. These returns are I read are done by hand so to speak they are not done by computers. Please please it’s release our refund.

    I filed an injured spouse form on Feb 27th. The irs received it that day. I used to be able to call to see what the status was but now i cant. I could really use some reassurance that we will still receive our check on April 23rd. We are in great danger of being homeless as we have lost all sources of income due to this virus. Please help!

    I’m just trying to figure out why on God’s creation the IRS wants to review everyone’s tax returns this year? Did they know something we did not know? Because everyone on here that has left a comment is saying the same thing about having their taxed reviewed. It’s really funny that half of America is having their taxes reviewed. I know that they are working hard trying to do everything just like everyone else in this time of crisis, but when you file your taxed and do what you are supposed to, why does it have to take them 60 days to review something, especially when all the information is right there at their fingertips. We all have bills to pay and kids to take care of. I think that they need to hire more help if it is taking them this long to review things. I bet every single one of them have gotten their returns already!!!

    I filed on 1/29/20 and it was accepted. Made calls on 2/24, 3/1 and 3/9. Last call I was told on 60 day review as of 2/24 and awaiting W2 from 2nd employer. Tax preparer who was on call with me offered to fax over W2 immediately to expedite processing. We were told NO, IRS couldnt accept W2 info, UNLESS its requested by them!!!!! I recieved letter dated 3/23 reaffirming I’m on 60 hold review…..This is absolutely insane… How could the head of IRS consciously hold back REFUNDS of me and thousands of others during
    this PANDEMIC situation we are all in…..We could all use our refunds to pay for rent, groceries, monthly expenses in order to survive due to loss of jobs etc …..I’m blown away by the way IRS has handled this situation, by literally staying quiet about it…….And we are supposed to trust that the IRS will be sending out stimulus checks within 2 weeks, that they have been working hard to get systems I order to handle stimulus payments etc etc……Honestly I trust nothing the IRS says at this point, as they don’t seem to care about thousands of Americans they have literally forgotten about and left I the dark!!!!

    First, I had to call IRS because I didnt get my IP Pin…..to be told, it was never generated. Then I had to wait for a replacement(even though it wasn’t generated) 21 days….Find out the system glitched so I am FORCED to mail my return. And side note, the online account required information is full of sh*t…I had what was asked and still couldn’t get an account. I sent my return Feb 20….it was received Feb 24. Can’t pull up my information on Where’s my refund because it’s saying check my filing date. Problem is, I can’t give that because I don’t know what the hell date IRS has used. Call the automated, still no info. But I can’t call to see which date to use. I guess Ill get this Stimulus payment before my return since IRS workers are home and cant work….or will that be delayed too

    What about the injured spouse claims? Are they still being processed? I lost my job over covid and have two kids and three dollars in the bank? What can I do to either get my money owed to me or immediate assistance to get me through these tough times? I can not wait another three weeks for a small stimulus check. I’d rather you release to me my much larger tax return that is owed to me.

    I e-filed and was accepted 2/4/2020. Called the IRS 3/5/2020 was told a letter had been sent a week and a half ago letting me know it was under review. Called again 3/10\2020 to ask what kind of letter so I knew if I needed to verify anything or send them any thing…was told my letter was being mailed out 3/16/2020…I received it 3/14/2020 saying an additional 60 days from the date on my notice..which was dated 3/16/2020. I have a 2yr old who had some medical issues that started in November that included extended night stays in Cleveland University Hospital into December finally having surgery in January. Due to all of this I lost my job and have not been able to work since December as I am a single parent. I do not understand how the IRS holds my refund for almost a month and a half before even notifying me they are going to be holding it another 60 days l!! And since my former job was closed due to COVID-19 how is the IRS possibly going to verify my income?? I am about to lose my apartment as well as my car and I was counting on my refund to help catch up on the bills…now…I can’t even start a job because the daycare is closed and I can’t reach anyone at the TAS center..so what the fuck am I supposed to do now to make sure my daughter has a roof over her head, heat, lights, water, food jn her belly, diapers and a vehicle to get her to all her Dr and therapy appts? I am soooo angry and starting to freak out.

    DEAR IRS,
    The American people really do need our tax return during these times. A lot of family members has lost jobs, hours cut and been furloughed. Tax return help middle and low class Americans either pay off bills that they have accrued all year or just stay above water. PLEASE PLEASE send the AMERICAN PEOPLE THEIR MONEY. Its already bad enough to be dealing with a PANDEMIC but to worry about finances is way to overwhelming.

    I filed my taxes and they were accepted January 27th. In late February I called the IRS whom stated I was going to be under review starting March 9th and it could last 60 days. I can’t do anything until May 8th. You would think with wanting to stimulate the economy they would push refunds faster. I am struggling to make it another 7 weeks. It should not take this long to verify income.

      I am in the exact same situation. I filed the same day as you. When I had not received My refund after several weeks I called and the only information they could give me was that I would receive a letter in the mail. Weeks later I receiveD the letter post marked March 9th with a 60 day review. I called tax payer advocate assistance and was told that my situation wasn’t dyer. Advocate explained a dyer situation is homelessness or imprisonment. I told her I am running out of money and an eviction isn’t unprovable. My partner owns a small business and isn’t able to work due to covid and my hours have been cut dramatically but I’m still employed. She told me that if I used the advocate services that it would increase the time to receive any information by several months and that I would no longer be able to ask questions regarding my return. Long story short, I have no idea when I’ll receive my return. I’m not worried that having a reviewed return could affect receiving the stimulus check. I really hope that doesn’t happen.

    Help!!! I have a TAS. I have called several times for another update as I was suppose to receive my money last 2 weeks ago. Yes, I am ex-military and trying to remain civilized. But I need my funds. I have a family of 10. I should be able to speak to my TAS and find out why my money has not posted to my account. I did talk to a gentleman at the IRS on 03/20/2020 and he said that my file was with injured spouse. This should have been expedited since I had a hardship. If I did not file the form with the taxes, I would understand that it takes some time to get the money back. But this was filed with the taxes. I have contacted FL Senate and Representative for District 19. Foodstamps are a joke $89 dollars. Someone need to make the IRS step up. My taxes was accepted on 01/28/2020. Laws need to be changed regarding CTC and EITC because this is hurting your people – remember the ones that votes and pay your salary.

    A few weeks ago my income tax was withheld and sent to the treasury to cover some of my debt with student loans. With the new assistance provided by government it’s saying that garnishment will be stopped temporarily until the Coronavirus crisis is over, I’m just wondering will my income tax be returned back to me so that I may use it to help my family get thru this crisis?

    I understand the IRS measures of precautions because of identity theft, but there should measures put into place to assist Americans owed refunds. A stimulus package is a great idea, but the government can save giving away money when all they have to do pay the people they owe. Simple logic.

I sent my 2014 return same day to 3 different irs address through usps priority, called multiple times until I was advised I can fax the proof ( wont be processed but atleast my 2019 gets released..) well it finally released on 3/11 and I’m currently still awaiting a status change from processing… I’ve called multiple times again and just being advised wait two weeks to 21 days. During this Covid19 crisis this is horrible to have to wait so long after I originally filed in Jan.

As such I am going to put aside all my earnings from this site this month – around $500 – and give $50 to 10 people. So one for you and your husband. I can only do PayPal or Amazon. So please send me your email linked to either of these options and will send it to you. Email has to match name in some way to confirm identity. You can email me directly at saving2invest@gmail.com

    Mailed 2/7, processing 3/6, still processing 3/13. Never has it taken this long even with mail. No updates. No job and was relying on this to get by for a while. Now the kids are home all day…
    Would love to hear if anyone has updates. Please get our refunds processed!

    I filed 1/24 got put on a 60 day review and am still waiting with two kids and a newborn haven’t worked in two months and was about to go back but every restaurant is shut down here. I got a tax advocate but now no one is answering at the office . They need to just release the taxes for people. All the food is rapidly disappearing and I have no money for food or toilet paper. I don’t know what to do. My older kids are out of school now so I can’t have them eat there anymore. This is just insane!!

    I filed 1/30 and I am STILL WAITING! IRS says it’s being reviewed, allow them 60 days to finish! I can’t BELIEVE THAT!! I was relying on my refund for a vehicle, and now all the shutdowns! It’s absolutely RIDICULOUS! They need to give people their money IMMEDIATELY!! This is definitely not the time to hold refunds! Very upsetting

    Filed 02/28. Had to mail in because of a stupid dependent issue. Would not allow e-filing because of a mistake by another taxpayer that couldn’t be undone. It is now March 17th, and my tax return has not yet been considered accepted. I know it isn’t technically “late” yet but seems to be taking longer than normal based on the research I’ve done.

    The IRS has delayed processing refunds before the announcement of Covid-19. There are so many people receiving 45to60 day reviews/holds. Our money should be released ASAP. We need more complaints to be heard regarding this issue.

    I E-FILED my tax returns , i have received my State but have been yet to receive the FED. I filed on Jan 28th and still no FED. If i owed the Fed’s They would have garnished my already small wages days after i filed. This is a forum to vent i believe and no one from the IRS will be reading this at this point . I love my country but i am not thrilled with this government at all. So sad land of the free home of the taxed.

    I filed my taxes 1/27/20… I’m still waiting. I remember when Rapid refund actually meant rapid refund when you get it back within 24 hours times have changed a lot…
    I’m not sleeping up late waiting for 12 midnight to check refund status… just for it to say they have it and it’s Processing even if I want to go grocery shopping for the coronavirus on my household items in case they do I lock in I won’t be able to even afford it… there is no food left in stores and I’m really eating noodles after a 12hour shift… and that’s all I have for my kids… not only that I would grab a burger here or there but it’s closing down for a few weeks. By the time I get paid I will have money no food‍♀️‍♀️

    Foodstamp allocations during coronavirus. Emergency funds for water juice and etc. Whomever have a card should received help. No one should have to go to office for aid in fear of getting sick. We need first aid kits for health n safety asap.

    I heard it would delay for 2.5 – 4.0 months from the day it filed. Not bad at all compare 4 yrs ago. Usually it only takes 10 – 14 days. Our economy is a little bit down, stocks, etc due to corona virus (Covid19). Politic issue has also an effect etc etc..
