Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2015

The IRS will begin accepting tax returns electronically on January 20th, 2015.

When Can You File Taxes in 2015?

You don’t need to wait for the IRS to start accepting tax returns to prepare your return because most tax preparers allow you to file and submit your return a week or more earlier than the date announced by the IRS. The tax return will sit in a “queue” 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 it’s a test.

Are 2015 tax refunds being delayed until October?

It is rumored that tax refunds will be delayed until October 2015, and this is a bunch of NON-SENSE.  The story that is being circulated in social space is from a satirical news source and is not true. However “real” it may appear, this is a fake news website that fabricates stories for entertainment purposes. Ha! Not so funny for us IGMRers, eh? Rest assured, there is no telling yet how next year will go, but the October 2015 tax refund delay is BS, not official news.

Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

2015 Tax Season Update  The most recent tax refund cycle charts have 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. However, various websites with refund calendars for the 2015 tax season (2014 tax year) have been updated with 2015 direct deposit and check mailing dates.

When to Expect My Refund?

2015 IRS Refund Schedule Chart from The College Investor has been updated and estimates that early filers whose returns are accepted by February 7, 2015 can anticipate a tax refund direct deposit on February 20th, 2015. These refund cycle charts estimate deposit dates based on prior year trends.

    Received a Call from my local advocate office after calling yesterday and was told I finally qualified due to length of time waiting. I had a referral put in on June 8th and she said it was closed but nothing moved. 2nd referral. The hold is still on my account regarding income but my income was sent and verified over 2 months ago. Smh. So I have to wait 5 days to get a call from an advocate. Smh.

    @idverifylady15: they are saying we are missing a 1099 for winnings in vegas. So, we got online and got the 1099. Winning was under 200. You don’t need a 1099 for that. 6 months now, been through review, 3 referrals and all the sudden this pops up. TA was also confused

    @leelee92 I did send everything in the beginning but it was never went to examination because it was in that pile awaiting to be assigned to a person…it was in the pile for at least a month and a half and I said I cannot wait that long….Call the National Tax Advocate line and tell them your case number and you need the supervisors phone number.

    @leelee92: Go ask for your TA’s supervisor! I’ve been waiting because of the examination for self employment tax and it was just sitting waiting to be assigned which it was never done and had it released. I got a DD for July 1

    @Heather: I have a TA AN I HAVE HAD 3 REFERRALS. THEY DON’T HELP THE SITUATION. THEY SUPPOSE TO HELP SPEED THE PROCESS UP AN THEY DON’T. AT THE END OF THE DAY THEY STILL HAVE TO REPORT INFORMATION TO THE IRS. SO IT’S POINTLESS

    They’re releasing them at set time frames… I’m pretty sure next Saturday most of us will have received our return.. But by July 30 I bet we all will have them because of the interest they have to pay… Just stay patient and relax most of your guys will have a DDD by next Saturday mark my words

    @leelee92: I have gone through 2 30 days referrals and nothing. Got a TA and they told me nothing was wrong and gave them 10 days to release it. 10 days have passed and still nothing. No updates. Talked to TA yesterday and he said he was gonna give them to the 30th. I’m not holding my breath

    3 weeks into 30 day referral and still no update. Called last thursday and a nice lady said she saw the referral but i just needed to wait. She also sent my transcripts out since i cant order online. The one lady i spoke with told me if this referral doesnt go through then i will be appointed a Ta. And they have 10 days to release it. SO i guess if nothing next week then thats what path ill be on. I think at this point im not anticipating it. Ive had to move to a new place without, get my car fixed without it etc. So when it comes, then it will. I just hope it comes before my bday july 15.😔

    Should I Be Worried?

    After getting a TA a few months ago, my 2013 taxes were FINALLY released (still waiting on 2014). My TA said last week that a check would be sent out on the 19th. Since I live in Ohio and the check is coming from the treasury department in Philly, it should have only taken a few days. It’s almost been an entire week and I still haven’t received it. I called the treasury department yesterday just to confirm that a check was sent out and he said that it was sent out on the 18th and keep watching for it in the mail. I have never had to wait a whole week for something to come in the mail. Should I be concerned?

    Still waiting
    Filed 2/5, received cp05 letter, had to wait 45 days; First referral was put in and the refund was approved to be released on 5/18. Never did. I called IRS and they assigned me a TA on 6/14. TA called me on 6/18 to let me know he put in a request to release the funds. I should hear something before 7/2. Any suggestions?

    @leelee92: they never received their refund. They have had a ddd date , after they went through a TA, on the deposit or mail check date, they pull it and put it back into review to start the process all over again. These people have gotten excited to finally have a date only to get more excuses.

    @leelee92: I’ve requested by transcripts by mail every 10 days for 3 months and never receive them. 2 reps said they can fax them and both times when they ask for our Fax number the phone goes dead and we never get them back on the phone.

    @leelee92: a ton. Main one is igotmyrefund on Facebook. Several people have got a TA, got their refund released, then put back into 60 day review again. There’s one person who this happened to and called again and the IRS told her September. It’s like the IRS keeps coming up with excuses to hold up refunds. Some people are starting a petition to get refunds released and contacting Congress

    I’m trying to keep my faith and think positive. I’m confused as to why a lot of people went into review, wait 5 months, then go into review again. From other sites I’m seeing this is happening a lot.

    My sister filed January 23 and haven’t received herrefund yet. When she call they aalways tell her it’s done and sitting in the Philadelphia office. They sent her a letter to idverify and she successfully did that on March 10. She called on May 11 and a referral was put in and was told if she don’t receive it by June 11 to call back. She called back on June 11 and was told she was getting a letter but don’t know when. As of today still no refund or letter.

    Well my tax advocate is confused. She called on a day she said she wouldn’t. But she said hopefully my referral goes through an they released my refund an she might know by next week but she’ll be out her Office so she’ll call back on the 8th . God please don’t let this go into examination. I could be looking at September. God please be with me n my 8 month old son .we could really use our money. Please help everyone on this site that’s in need of their money as well.in jesus name amen!
