Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2018?

The IRS began accepting and processing tax returns on January 29, 2018.  According to the IRS, Where’s My Refund tool is the best way to check the status of your tax refund.

When Can You File Taxes in 2018?

Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the first week of January 2018.  You don’t need to wait for the IRS to start accepting tax returns to start, but you must have the proper forms and paperwork. Some forms are not available until mid January and some even later.  When you submit your return before the IRS begins processing, it will sit in a “queue” and be held until the date that the IRS will officially accept tax returns.  If you e-file early and it sits in queue, your return may be sent to the IRS early in a test batch. This has resulted in early direct deposits in the past, but also major glitches because they are tests after all.

Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

2018 Refund Cycle Chart

The most recent tax refund cycle charts have already been published. The official IRS tax refund cycle chart has been eliminated and replaced with an IRS Information Guidelines for the Tax Preparation Community publication and the IRS says the best way to check the status of your refund is using the Where’s My Refund tool. However, various websites with refund calendars for the 2018 tax season (2017 tax year) have been updated with 2018 direct deposit and check mailing dates.

When to Expect My Refund?

IRS Refund Schedule Charts typically show that early filers whose returns are accepted before the end of January can anticipate a tax refund direct deposit as early as the first week of February.  The day that IRS deposits refunds varies but we notice trends that help you determine the time and days WMR updates and when your tax return is processed.

The refund calendar by the College Investor is a good reference which has been updated for 2018 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    @Jalisa (Not logged in): After the review one in February, then a really random “we just need more time” one in early May, I didn’t receive anything else. My TA probably intercepted the process before they could generate it.

    I can’t believe it. I literally posted a message, THEN went to go look at WMR and it has a date for 6/27 deposit!!!!!!! LONG TIME COMING!!!!! If you haven’t gotten a TA, get one if you qualify! At this point, everyone should qualify! If you know your wages are off, AMEND! If I didn’t, I would’ve still been waiting!!

    My amended was accepted 5/25. Does anyone know if it will come as a DD or check? My TA says DD, but every site I check says they don’t do DD’s for amended. I did request DD for original return.

    Still here, no change. Still have Anna a of date of June 18th. 570 code with March 5th. No notices after review letter. I was told my referral was closed May 2nd and I would either get my refund OR a letter because wages were off. I was told to do nothing. Still no letter, no nothing. I actually called the Lie R S today and was on hold waiting for a rep but decided to hang up because I wasn’t in the mood for BS. Maybe I’ll call Monday. Congrats to everyone that updates this weekend.

    UPDATE!!!! Checked WMR This morning and it changed to we received your return it’s being processed. The message about giving a date was gone. Tried checking my transcripts this morning and was getting page not found error. Just checked and my transcripts are there!!!! DD date of 6/27. I’m so freaking happy I could cry! It’s been a rough rough year this far and I’d written off this refund. Man. Keep the faith. It’s coming!

    @Stillwaitinghere: that date is the date they need to do something on your return or push it out another week. In my case, I was under audit and it just sat at March 5th. It would go ahead for 3 weeks in the morning and then come right back to the March 5th in the evening which told me they were not even working on my return. When it went to the July 2nd date last Friday and stayed, I had a strong feeling it was being processed but was unsure if it was going to get pushed out to another week. Also, I always check in the evenings on Friday since transcripts can update all the way up to ten at night. Others may be different, since an audit can throw you into a holding pattern and some people are just in review. I just honestly think they are so backed up from the Feb. 15th hold pattern that they are working them in order and that’s what is throwing everything in such a slow process.

    Filed Jan. 18th. Got a 424 exam request code Jan. 25th. Jan 26th I got the 420 audit code. Feb. 12th received my letter for cp75 for request for documents verifying I am my children’s caretaker. I sent in over 100 pages of verification on my 5 kids the next day. My “as of” date each week would go a week ahead and then later in the day go back to the March 5th date and has done that for the last 2.5 months. Last Friday it went to July 2nd and finally stayed at that date. This morning I checked my transcripts and I am officially out of audit and have my refund date of 6/26. Finally finished. Stacy, if you’re around, watch those “as of” dates. I really think they reflect if they are working on them.

    @Stillwaitinghere: just had mine update to verification of non filing. Filed on March 5th. ID verified March 26th. I called a couple of weeks after because most reported seeing movement a week later. The rep kept saying she didn’t see where I verified, didn’t see it didn’t see it. Then she said oh I do see it and gave me the date. Said it hasn’t been 9 weeks. Ok. So when I saw the non filing I called. Said they didn’t see I verified didn’t see it, gave her the date, she said she saw the call but the verify hadn’t been cleared. Transfered me to that department. More holding, she said the rep didn’t clear the hold and I had to verify again. I did and guess what? She said wait another 9 weeks.

    This is BS

    @Jojo12345: the way child support works is he will have to go to the office and sign a form allowing them to “release” child support to you. I do believe that by Nov. if nothing has been signed or released it will automattically be credited to you.

    Im not sure what your options are as far as contacting him and maybe seeing if he will agree to release it or call the office and see if they can reach out to him.

    @Jojo12345: If he filed joint, whoever he filed joint with may file an injured spouse claim against the back child support amount owed. If its just his income that was filed then its possible you may still receive it. It may be a little bit of wait though. Can you contact your child support enforcement agency and see if they can give you any information?

    @StuckInStoweWithNoDough: i feel your pain, I have been here since late jan/early feb. and there has been so much confusion, pain and down right uncertainity on this forum. Most of us here are honest people, we paid our taxes, we waited the 2 weeks for the PATH only to be hit with long wait periods, wait 45 days, wait 60 days, wait this letter or wait for that letter! and yet we get no straight answers, only the run around. I have been doing my taxes and friends taxes for almost 20yrs and I can say I have never seen a tax yr. such as this….. I do hope you get positive news, Ive been told not to expect any movement until Aug/Sept. if I knew this was certain at least I would have something to look forward to, but who knows, it may be Christmas or new Yrs before I update. I’m being audited so I sort of expect a long wait but for those who are not being audited this is absurd!!!!!!!

    Still waiting…have verified I am not under review, they do not need anything more from me…yet they keep saying 60 days…I have stopped checking to see if my “still processing” has changed to a DDD because what is the point- I foresee it’ll be another January refund…it’s beyond ridiculous & no excuse- for anyone to wait this long & still be told another 60 days…for what?? So they can tell me yet another 60 days? Monkeys could process our returns faster- in this day and age it should all be automated- I hope everyone here gets better news this week…I give up.

    Hello. I’m hoping for some clarification, help, anything really.
    We filed in April. Turbo tax electronically , have done this for years and never had an issue.
    Well this year we first received notice of needing to submit a 8962
    So we did via fax. Then we receive a letter of needing to verify our identity, so we did.
    Now I become aware of being able to view transcripts so I checked ours out.
    We have 2 codes and future dates ?? Can you help me at all? Any info would be greatly appreciated. My eyes are crossing from all of the reading , researching and typing.

    Still here, no update of any kind. The only change I have seen on my transcripts is my as of date changes to June 18th a few weeks ago. I still have the the 570 on my transcript with a date of March 5th. No notices show on my transcript. Referral was closed back on May 2nd and I’m supposed to receive a letter sometime in June. Maybe I’ll see my refund by the end of summer. I just think that the major part of tax season was over months ago and people like myself are still waiting. This is so unacceptable!

    @beautifult: was wondering since you got a Federal ID verify letter did you get one from Georgia?. I was told I was to get one but it has never came. I was just wondering. Still waiting on my Federal refund as well.

    @Past9weeksandsum: This year has been crazy. I’ve seen so many people just waiting with really not a lot of issues. No real pattern to anything. Good luck, hopefully you’ll see something soon.

    @Staci B.: I know what you mean, being in a holding pattern is really frustrating. I wondered how you were doing. I checked this morning and I’m still on the July date. I’m hoping its a sign they have started to work on it. I am like you, I decided if it wasn’t until later in the year I would just patiently wait. This tax year has been the craziest I’ve ever seen. Let me know how you’re doing.

    I’ve been lurking for months, from the time I filed (march 5 or something) to the time of waiting out my 9 weeks after ID verifying in person at my local office (apr 5). I called a day before the 9 weeks was up (May 31) just because I figured if I called before that it would give them time to generate some BS letter. Spoke to rep on May 31 and explained that I had been patient, understand they are busy, but times up! She politely told me my return was “sleeping” and she didn’t see where any letters were sent. After confirming my LIFE, she placed me on hold 2-3 times and said she sent a referral to the correct department to release my refund and that could take up to 30 days (I was surprised I didn’t hear the 45 or 60 day crap)..Obviously tonight there’s an expected update and it’s been 16 days since the referral was put in on my behalf. I need everyone’s insight on this and if you guys think I’ll update tonight soooo let’s play a game lol… give me your thoughts. I WAITED THE FULL 9 WEEKS after verifying and that was torture. How much more can I endure I just had a birthday I’m getting old waiting on this little couple grand

    @Sheila_33: hi well having the as of date change is some movement but I know what you mean about hoping it stays….mine changed weeks ago from april 3 but before the day ended it changed right back to where it started. I was told not to look for my refund until aug. and belive it or not at least that gives me something to look for, because who knows it could be christmas with the rate things are going.
