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.

    @brooke: Yeah, same here except the wages info is about a paragraph long not stating any real information…just my name, SS number, a tracking number, etc. and says: ‘no record of return filed…’

    @brooke: I couldn’t remember from past posts, but were you able to order or view your transcript? I ordered mine online but it shows no availability for the 2014 tax year. Obviously, since my return has been in the error department for the past 60+ days, they probably don’t even show it in the system. Just wondering..?

    i filed and was accepted jan 22. my bars disappeared a few days later. i had to send in a corrected 1095A from health marketplace. it has been nothing but a huge headache! my cycle code was 20151205. on friday 4/24 my transcripts updated. my cycle code now says 20151605. i FINALLY got the 846 code!!!! i filed w/taxact and had my fees to be taken out of my refund. so my refund will go thru republic bank and then to my bank acct. i have checked republic bank and it shows no activity since 2/2 when my state refund went thru. there is nothing pending at my bank.. how long after the 846 code shows up does it take to actually get ur money?? i wondered since it has been so long since ive filed are they sending a paper check instead of direct depositing it?? republic bank tok out my transfer fees back in feb! so ive already paid them to get my money and send it to me! can anyone tell me what i should expect???

    I’ve been quietly watching what everyone is going through. I’m been going through the same thing. Filed Feb.6, review over 60 days, got my referral April 17. Seeing that some of you are starting to receive your refunds gives me hope. I’m still worried though because nothing has updated on mine.

    Also, I CAN view my return transcript for 2014…actually I can view all of them for 2014. Still no 846 though. Is this a good sign?

    I looked up my cycle code and it said on April 30th.. Now I don’t know if that means it will be deposited that day, because I don’t have the tax code 846.

    @Susan B: It seems as if the hold is still there with that 570 code. The code you want to see is 846. I see you have a referral and you could update this coming week. Keep in mind with a referral not everyone going to update in two weeks it can take the whole 30 days. In fact for the last three years I had to get a referral in order to get my refund due to id theft. The on three years ago I went all the way to day 29 before I got a wording change. Hang in there your blessing is on the way. It may not come when you want it come but it will be there right on time. We have a on time God. Be blessed and keep me posted.

    @kia86: I have a tax advocate so will my wording change? She said that was also my issue being unpostable but she said they finally released my refund and she put in a request to expedite my refund. I heard that a lot of people’s wmr never changed.

    Finally woke up to a deposit date of 4/29. My story I filed January 21 accepted the same day. Was a victim of identity theft in 2011. Went unpostable January 29. Called told to wait 6-8 weeks from February 2. Waited the entire 8 weeks, called back on March 31, had a referral put in on that date. My first movement was Thursday. My wording changed to we have received your refund it is being processed. Finally the wait is over. Just no when your wording change to being processed, that your refund is defiantly on its way. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting. The irs is finally getting in there job.

    @Brandon: Thank You! I’m not too familiar with the transcript codes because I have yet to see one. I knew mine was coming when the wording changed and the I called 1-800-829-0922. Chose option 1, then option 2 (you do have to set up a PIN) It will let you listen to automated info on your account for any year. But, I think it will only work if the IRS is still open. It doesn’t seem to work overnight.
