Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2016

The IRS will begin accepting and processing tax returns on January 19, 2016.

When Can You File Taxes in 2016?

Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the week of January 4, 2016.  You don’t need to wait for the IRS to start accepting tax returns to prepare, 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 it’s a test.

Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

2016 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. However, various websites with refund calendars for the 2016 tax season (2015 tax year) have been updated with 2016 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.

  2. Beyond frustrated!!!

    Filed and accepted 1/25….21 days went up and I went under a “random review” was told to wait 9 weeks and call back. 9 weeks came, I called back and was told I was “unpostable”. Said I needed to wait 6 more weeks. Waited and STILL NOTHING!! Finally got a TA in April she said she needed a letter from my employer then she says I need to amend my wages because it didn’t match what they had on file but it matched the w2 I got in the mail! Did everything she asked and she said she would call back on May 9th and here it is the 23rd and I STILL know absolutely nothing!! Called the IRS today and she said due to my hardship (my 8 year old son needs open heart surgery and I have to come up with 10% of what my insurance doesn’t cover) they could of expedited it but they closed it out on 4/15 and I have to wait another 9 weeks to see if they release it or send out a letter!!! My son’s surgery is on the 31st and I need this money ASAP!!! Ta was supposed to be for a hardship and my sons life is to be considered just that! I’m so frustrated, depressed, sad and all of the above!! I need a miracle!!!

    Here is my story I got accepted the same day I filled 2/22/2016, I was missing the information on the 1095A forms. I received letter from IRS that I needed to send the 1095A information I faxed them the info, waited 6 weeks so they could properly adjust my refund. At the same time I used a replacement IP pin so after they completed the 1095A missing info I was told to wait 6 to 8 weeks more for the use of the replacement IP pin. The week #8 just passed this past Friday 5/20/2016. And nothing on WMR any one know how long do I have to wait now that all this is done?

    @SKI You are right no law and many people have tried to sue using the 5th and 13th amendment or some other way unsuccessfully. Best you can do is pay in the smallest amount that keeps you from actually owing them. Be sure you get the agents name and badge number when you call and if they are rude. You can file a complaint against them, probably wont do much good, but its an option, good luck keep us informed about your progress.

    Day 118 an all i get is you should get a letter. Bever do and then i call and again you should get a letter. I should get my @$!#!*& money not a letter. I am officially done caring. But i still want to get in the cage with the guy who was super rude abd hung up on me. Its a thieving organization. There isn’t even a law that says you are required to pay federal invome tax. Only state and local taxes are required by law. If someobe can find the law that says you have to pay federal income tax then i will give you everything i own.

    @CPBOOJP You need to call back and get more information they should have more info to give than what they told you on Friday, the problem could be just an adjustment made on your return, just keep calling back until you get a hold of an agent that will actually look into it.

    I amended my 2014 tax, they recived them on feb 22, i got a letter saying I had to send proof from my kids school, then another letter stating i had to send proof of income, that was in early march. Then I looked today and it says this on the wmrf amended ,

    If you have not received a notice and you would like to speak to a customer service representative, call 800-829-0582, extension 633, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. You will need a copy of your amended return.

    what does this mean. When I called friday they told me that my return was not finished processing. Does this mean I did not send enough proof, or will i get what I am owed. I’m so lost. ty for all the help

    @ANONYMOUS Its how they handle these return where they question the credits and dependents they will send you the refund without the credits they are questioning. Yes they will indeed have to pay interest.

    Well, WMR finally updated to “your return is being processed, with the full amount of my refund. I received a letter in the mail from the IRS stating that my offset was reversed, and I will be getting a refund in the full amount. When? If I owed them money, the IRS sure in the hell wouldn’t wait for me to process their payment!

    @KYM The whole ACA (Obamacare) is taking up to 6 weeks because they are now adjusting you amount on your return, when I faxed paperwork it took 16 days but they didnt adjust, and its adding 3 more weeks.

    @ANONYMOUS When did you send in your amended return? It can take up to three weeks for it to show up in the system, and even longer for them to start working on it, if you sent in your amended return while your original return was still in their system this could cause a delay also.

    Transcripts 2/13 code 570
    Called told i was in wage verification
    Got TA been working on it, told i need to prove hoh, eic, etc
    Sent in birth certificates, ins cards, ss cards, school records, etc.
    TA called yesterday said refund was approved but kids, denied, eic denied, hoh denied.
    All while WMR never changed, WMAR never found record and then says if you agree we can send out this refund check before the 1st so that no interest can be claimed and you can amend for the eic and hoh, which im confused cause this was and amended return…has anyone else?

    Okay, so I filed my taxes in February, and its almost June and I haven’t gotten anything back yet, WMR just says “Your tax refund is still being processed, a refund date will be provided when available” I called them in April and they said I had to send proof of insurance, I sent it in that day, and haven’t heard anything since! Has anyone else had this problem? If so how long did you have to wait?

    @ANONYMOUS If you were part of the ACA insurance problem and you had a change of amount on your return, you will not be able to access the WMR with the old amount you will need to enter to new adjusted amount.

    I called the IRS on 5/6 and was finally able to get an answer as to why I’m in the whole wage verify cycle. The rep told me that usually wage verify is because of income on the return that can’t be verified but in my case they said that they received additional w-2s from employers that were not on my tax return. They said they are attempting to verify if those are valid w-2s and just need to adjust my refund amount or possible id theft attempts and that it could take up to 6 weeks before any other updates, so still no DD and more waiting,

    Update: Called IRS back on 5/13 and was told my return is now being audited and that the entire refund amount is under review. I was told that a CP75D letter will be sent out dated 5/23 and that I will have 30 days to provide the requested information but they would not tell me over the phone what info is needed. Has anyone received the CP75D letter and if so how long (if ever) was it before you got another update/refund?

    I have been reading your threads since March 1st as I thought that maybe I was the only one still waiting. I filed 2/24 and checked daily with finally an update on 3/28 stating that my return was received and being processed. It has been that way since 3/28. OI finally called on 5/1 and spoke with a very nice rep who explained what was going on . My return had to go through another department for process due to me filing bankruptcy in Jan. That process was complete as of 4/28 and my return was then sent through for regular processing. I was told 4-5 more weeks but to check wmr each Friday going forward as the time frame could be sooner. I am suppose to call back by 6/10 if I have not received my ddd or refund by that date. Thank you all for posting as I learned some very important information and was able to get through on my call the first try because of it. I also learned of the offset number from post and was happy to know that I had none. I will keep posting each Friday until something happens.

    @8^( Still Waiting: I am in the exact situation as you. I received letter 12c early March. I faxed in paperwork and was told it was never received by the IRS…re-faxed info with copy of transmission that noted when original fax was received. I spoke to representative she said, the return would be processed without my documents….and it went into processing May 5th. I was told it would be four weeks from May 5th but, it was already in processing for the full 3 weeks before it was taken out. And, another 6-8 weeks on someone’s desk….and now…I am told it takes another 4 weeks because return has to be done by hand.

    I call once a week now…mostly for amusement at the lack of organization by IRS agents…nobody has any idea what is going on exactly…I feel like I am at the mercy of the IRS. The customer service reps know nothing! Completely useless talking to them.

    So working on my audit paperwork having to prove that my own children are mine. The birth certificates should do that but they also want rent receipts, utility receipts..cancelled checks? Do banks even give cancelled checks anymore???? I’m just going to highlight the entries on my debit card statement whenever I paid the light bill and rent. That should be enough I hope.

    Also evidently the IRS doesn’t trust W-2’s anymore even when they are on file because I offered to send that and they said we already have it, but we need a letter from your employer. I said that’s going to say the same thing..and they said “we know” we just need it in writing. Geesh!

    I filed April 18, accepted April 19. Wmr bars disappeared a couple days later. I called IRS sometime last week after my 21 days and said that they fixed the errors on 5/5 and to wait 6 weeks after that date to call back. Wednesday night’s update my wording changed from you’re refund is still processing, refund date will be provided once available to your tax return has been received and it is processing. Today I was able to order my 2015 return transcript… Does that mean I should be getting a DDD soon???

    Woke up this morning and my detailed account has finally changed! It says I have a refund issued on May 30th and my credit balance is 0.00. Could that mean I will update tonight? I filed 2/11 cp05 dated April 28th and it’s been a long 92 days!

    Hi everyone. I just wanted to post a piece of advice (that most of you already know!): if it has been over the number of weeks for “normal” processing time, CALL THE IRS AND QUESTION THEM!!! That should, at the very least, get them to document that you called.

    I waited for the 8 weeks to be up (I submitted my IS form after we efiled) and was told that they had my info, and that the department was over the expected processing time (duh!!) I was told to call back in 2 weeks if I hadn’t received my refund. Calling them at at least lets you know that they have your paperwork. Good luck to everyone, I’m off to be on hold forever with them right now haha!!

    @Stillwaitinginga I see you have gone thru the mill this year!! When you ordered your transcripts, did you get them? Did they have any codes? If you go by the close date of 5/5, your return could have gone back into processing and it could take up to 21 days for it process to a deposit, but I think if you are back in processing you will see an update maybe next week.

    I filed in JANUARY. I received a letter after my 21 days , saying its under review. I went ahead and got a tax advocate. She told me it was on hold because my numbers didn’t match. I sent my w2 to her and they matched . She told me there is still a freeze and that I had to go into the irs office and authenticate myself . I was then told after that it should be 1-2 weeks to be released . Lol well it’s 4 weeks later now and nothing. If I owed them they probably would be garnishing my checks by now. So my ta wants me to call every Friday to see if I’ve got a deposit date yet. Word to the wise don’t depend on your taxes .

  89. STILL waiting!

    site has said: “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.”
    This has been like this since 1/20/16 – they said they had to “porcess” it in another department in 2/2016 – then I called 5/1/206 and was told they may have forgot about it so they were going to request that it be “released”. They can’t tell me ANYTHING else. Like what the problem is or if something was wrong. No other information. No letters no nothing. I just want MY money.
    This is crap.

  92. still waiting since 2013

    I have been waiting for my taxes since 2013 because of someone has filed a tax return in my name. I have given them all the information that they requested to prove that I am whom I am. This is a crime shame a thief can get anything but I am being punished I have called on numerous times and nothing resolved along with getting a TA it is a joke. I have a simple return it is crazy.

    @hamilton:
    I’m sure it’s going to take a while to reissue. There is so much fraud going on with people stealing refund checks so never a good idea to deposit it in a account that’s not yours. You would of been better off going to a Walmart and paid a fee to cash it. Now you will know for next year.

    innocently, I deposited my daughter’s refund into my checking account. we both endorsed. just received letter from bank stating the IRS will not accept and Suntrust is sending the check back to the IRS. Didn’t have a problem depositing her state refund. They said it was an IRS law. I am sure it will take months to be reissued to her. Anyone ever heard of this before? There was no problem last year. My mistake, I didn’t know such a law existed (if it is actually an IRS law or the bank). Thanks in advance for any info.

    Called yesterday which was 21 days from when my return got accepted and they told me that there was an error on my return when I e-filed it. It had to go into a manual review.. lady said they corrected the errors on 5/5/16 and told me to call back in June 16 (6 weeks), if I didn’t receive my refund by then. Anyone filed the same time as me?

    I spent ALL DAY on hold today.

    Filed 1/19
    Bars disappeared 2/4
    Went through the ID Ver, Wage Ver, waiting 21 days, 45 days, 30 days, the list goes on. Today marked the 46th day since I sent my wage ver in, so I called for the 100th time, I was on hold all day, off and on. Calls dropped, blah blah. Finally spoke to a man who was rude and told me nothing has happened to my account SINCE MARCH, I am not sure if he just wanted to get me off the phone or not, he said nothing was updated. nothing was shown if my review was still frozen, if I waged verified gave me the TA number and let me go off the line. I spent 2 hours trying to get in touch with a TA because I was either on hold for an hour, or the call wouldn’t go through at all and told me the lines were to busy call back tomorrow. Ive waited so long, I have a wedding to pay for in three months, bills to pay. I just want my damn refund. its getting so damn annoying.

So paying that wont be happy[but at least ill be able to answer my phone] but outta my 7 kids 3 are still in school and i cant wait to be able to buy them some well deserved things.With all the poop that happened ive had to say no to them more than ive ever had [or wanted]to. They are pretty darn awesome kids so i cant wait to make them smile for awhile. But i absolutely got the saturday feeling as soon as we discssed what the irs said yesterday…..i promise i aint blowing smoke up yourbutt just to make you happy i really think this is your week baby!!!!!

    Hello everyone,
    I am new here and glad I found this thread. Any who I filed 2/1 accepted 2/1. Well my bars on wmr disappeared about 2 weeks later. Contacted the IRS and they stated that there was a glitch during the time I filed and to give them 6-8 weeks. Called back my taxes were pulled for a review. Called again and the referral that was put in expired and the lady had to resubmit (so she says). She then proceeds to tell me it will be 6-8 weeks and then once the referral is closed it will be another 6-8 weeks for my deposit. I am over it. I was a victim of identify theft with my taxes last year and the person or people had no problem filing taxes under me. But I feel like I am the one being penalized for something I didn’t do. I would just really like my money I worked for. Sheeesh!

But it didnt shock me cause my spidey sense tells me[and sorry just being honest]that you are gonna update saturday….and were gonna hope this week flies by. I been doing the countdown to my deposit tonight and praying it goes in….i swear its doesnt get easier. Its sorta like when your kids are little and as they grow you still worry about them if not as much than more…..well same goes with this …i been awreck for 4 months and these next 12 hrs are giving me panic attacks cause i keep getting the feeling theyre gonna find a reason to not give me my money. And now that i had the ddd i have things coming directly out tomorrow and if i dont get my deposit my life is gonna be a mess on a whole nother level…..so im gonna keep hoping for you and please do the same for me…..talk to you later…xoxox
