POST YOUR ACTUAL TAX REFUND EXPERIENCE HERE
This is a “user to user” site and the primary mode of support is peer-to-peer, meaning users helping other users. Admin and moderators are not always present or may not have answers to questions. Each user becomes more informed about topics the same way: the frequency at which we are here to read and comment. We are not a group of experts, merely taxpayers, and probably have learned more than we ever wanted to know about taxes.
Where is the 2013 Refund Cycle Chart? The refund cycle chart has been eliminated and replaced with an IRS Information Guidelines for the Tax Preparation Community publication. A personal finance blog at The College Investor has put together an Estimated Refund Date Chart based on last year’s tax refund chart that you may find useful: Estimated Refund Date Chart.

Is your comment “Held for Moderation? Please read: How We Moderate Comments
The conversations you have can be insightful and opinions are welcome. We love facts the most, but this really is a grapevine so theories and rumors are great too--- as long as we can keep the difference clear to readers. It is important to delineate fact from fiction and theory, and doing this will make our site the most useful. Cite your sources when possible or say in your comment that it is an opinion or theory. All comments are welcome, with only a few exceptions that have to do subverting our "do no harm approach", our goals for this site and the sense of community here.
While we try to go through comments that have been held for moderation and rescue valid comments that do no harm, we recommend that you avoid doing any of the following:
Comments in all capital letters. Yes, if the content is relevant and adds value to our conversations, we may allow something in all caps. But ALL CAPS writing is tantamount to yelling; do you really want to shout at the thousands of users who regularly use our site and likely in a similar position as you?
Posts containing nothing but an URL. They look like spam to filters, and frankly they often look like spam to us too. If you're sharing an address that answers a question or helps others here, it may get moderated. But if you add even a short description of the info being linked to, it will show up much more quickly.
Now there are comments we remove regularly, some are automatically moderated:
Overtly adverting another website or repetitive comments that clog our feed. This is not about a sense of competition, but rather the overarching goal of aggregating good conversation and information here on the refund grapevine.
Comments that harass, attack individual users, violate rights, laws or any other comment we deem offensive and not in spirit with our goals may, in our sole judgment, or upon request from other users, be removed.
Some more general commenting info from IGMR:
We've put a lot of work into our site by promoting civil and meaningful comments and do our best to automatically detect and eliminate problems. We will remove vulgar comments and obscene messages, try to restrict spammers and trolls to avoid too much chaos in the feed. There is a link on each comment to allow user to self-moderate and let the Admin staff know if a comment need attention and why: click Report to let us know if a comment need moderated.
If a topic merits attention and could potentially get lost in our fast paced commenting system, we encourage you to create a topic in our forum and simply link to it in your comments here as a reference for pointing people to aggregated information to help them.
Often the answer to questions appear in our old comments, forums and HOT topic and FAQ pages. So, we encourage you to use the search in our sidebar for answers. You might find more focused results.
We strive to practice what we preach and if comments are being held for moderation that you believe shouldn't be or you have question about how we moderate comments, please email the IGMR Admin team.
DO NOT ASK FOR OR SHARE YOUR SPECIFIC FILING INFORMATION WITH OTHER USERS, MODS OR ADMINS. DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, ACTUAL FILING AMOUNT, STATUS, ETC. WE THOUGHT THIS WENT WITHOUT SAYING BECAUSE OF FRAUD ISSUES, BUT JUST A REMINDER. DOING THIS IS GROUNDS FOR IMMEDIATE BANNING FROM SITE.
