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.

    So I was assigned a TA finally after telling me my refund was held since January they finally let me know it was due to me not reporting a w2 I never received. So I go to amend and it’s trying to say I now owe a balance ?? I’ve never amended but I know I shouldn’t owe anything I think I did something wrong does anyone know about amendments?

    My tax was released last week, but still don’t have an update on wmr. I got a TA and she was very pleasant and sweet. Don’t know what my due date is or if I have one yet because I can’t check my transcript online. Praying everyone who has been here gets some good news soon. The irs are the scammers, and they are stealing money. If you did see the news about a irs worker stealing people’s identities and filing tax refunds it has bvb gapped last week

    @Sheila_33: hi, just wanted to say thanks for hanging around to encourage those of us who are / or had been seeking answers to questions about our refund delays. I know that before I got my refund I would come to this forum to read others comments/question or concerns. It really helps to have people here who can share experiences and give sound advice to other who are really having a difficult time. Due to my job schedule I won’t be lurking around as much but I will check on everyone weekly. Thanks to you and everyone here who have helped give those of us who need/ed a sense of clarity and some peace of mind. THANKS!!!!

    @Jalisa (Not logged in): hi, i’ve been following your story, I think most of us who have been here since jan. are happy to see when someone finally get some positive news. I got my deposit on 8/15 after going through an audit for dependents. my tax advocate did not help, but all tax advocates are not the same. when I got my audit letter , it stated my case should be done by late aug-early sept. so I think it was time for my case to be done. . my TA was suggested by a tax agent when I called for info on my audit. on 8/18 i got letter from TA stating my case was going to need more time, and that he will contact my on 8/27 for an update!….lol..my wmr. never updated to “approved” it still says ” processing”. I truly pray that you get your money soon, I can only imagine what stress this must be causing.

    @Jalisa (Not logged in): That would be a horrible experience. To have a ddd and think you’re finished and then an audit. That is just awful. Just proves the Irs is capable of anything, even after getting a deposit date.

    I got a call from my tax advocate on yesterday stating that she now has everything to move forward. I had to send in verification of my children etc from the years of 2014 and 2015. My next update is set for the 14th of Sept, hopefully more good news or a possible DDD. Has anyone else gotten any updates?

    @KBdoe: Federal debts are taken out of the refund before it is sent to the treasury to be dispersed so that doesn’t delay anything. Are you sure you had a balance due you after the debt was paid?

    @Irsblues: hi, thanks …. hang in there it’s coming!….it think that as of date means they are going to try to wrap things up in that time frame, so if this has any credibility hopefully you will update Sat. moringing with refund date for next week or sooner? you never can tell with this season!… my wmr never updated to approved, it said “being processed” so check your bank acct. daily….and my TA sent a letter saying ” theres a hold up ” on my refund and it may take longer…funny because I updated last Sat. morning… sad but the bad TAs make good TAs look bad, and that’s not fair to those who really work on our cases. take care and pls. keep us up to date on your case. -)

    Question though, my refund was offset for a federal debt. DDD of Aug 8th but the remainder hasn’t been sent to my card yet. They said to contact if not arrived by the 13th. They stated it was sent to my preparers financial institution. Would the offset delay the deposit by a few days?

    I was told I had to either mail in my verification for my employment or Make a appointment for their local office. Once I made a appointment and i went in the lady told me that she verified everything and i should either receive a letter within 60 days or my refund will be available due to she didn’t have that power to release my refund to me. Does that mean I’ll get my refund soon?

    @Domino: A 9001 could refer to a delay in processing your return for no reason except that they need more time to process. In a few cases, I have seen that code and a week later it updated to a refund date and I have seen it paired with a id verify.

    @Beautifultcd: hi, my story is that i filed my taxes late jan. got letter of being audited in feb. was told that i needed to provide documents showing proof of my dependents, i sent proof in March and until yesterday there weren’t really any changes in my returns. was assigned a TA in july, and to be honest I never had a conversation with my TA. I truly think it was just time for my audit to be done, I don’t think my TA had anything to do with the progress of my return. I’m so glad this tax season is over, but I pray that everyone still waiting on a refund will get a positive update soon, this has been an awful tax season , I don’t wish this on anyone.

    Like the rest of many of Americans. I am still waiting on my refund. I went & met a TA to prove my identity for me & my kids. I was told I would receive my refund in 9 weeks. It’s been 8 & have yet to see a piece of mail or my money. Anyone else have a clue on this situation.

    @Irsblues: hi my as of date changed to August 27 today,yesterday it was April 02, I read my entire acct. transcript and I have code 846- for 8/15. And my examination closed date is 8/15. At first I was skeptical ,since my as of date changed weeks ago but in few hrs changed back. I’m somewhat numb because until refund shows in bank account i can’t really celebrate because this tax season is so unpredictable.

    @Irsblues: That’s exactly what mine did so I really believe that’s great news. That date finally changed for me after sitting for 3 months. If it stays there and doesn’t flip back then I think you have a good chance of finishing in the next couple of weeks.

    @Tasha0018: There’s always a chance. Transcripts update today so if there are any changes you might see something. Its so frustrating when you can’t see them online, and you’re at the mercy of what they tell you on the phone.

    @Tasha0018: The reps you call on that number only see what you can see on your transcript if you’re able to view online. Unfortunately they can’t tell you too much and have a standard message they give you.

    Ok, I filed Electronically & was accepted July 25…Schedule C, Disabled Brother, Form 8862..The next day I was able to order blank transcripts, lol. I cant view online. Well I just called the IRS, 800-829-0582 ext 652, No Hold time immediately answered. I inquired about my refund. Seems to me like the rep didnt know what she was talking about. She was like “Umm i see on monday the 6th it was a mistake made on our end so it still says processing. Its gone take an additional 6-8weeks maybe. I cant see what the problem is but its on our end not yours. This was updated on Monda the 6th. So give it some time, it may not take that long but give it time. I hate i cant tell you anything “…… Somebody tell me how that sounds

    @wes302: That’s ridiculous to have to wait till November 9th, so basically we’ll be getting refunds back to back…… I just don’t understand any of this, we sit and wait months after months just to be told we have to wait months and months again.

    If you have an advocate and you’re not getting any response, please call the advocate supervisor. I have seen several have problems at the beginning of the year with their advocates and they ended up getting answers from the supervisor. If they are not returning your voice messages, there is a problem.

    @StuckInStoweWithNoDough: I feel it frustration, my TA has yet to contact me by phone,when I call it goes to voicemail. I’ve been waiting since late January. I’m usually a patient person but this tax season has tested my patience to the max and then some.

    Our system is complete BS…I just talked to my TA again as for some inexplainable reason my “received’ went back to the dreaded ‘still processing’ and they have until August 10th according to her to ‘work it’ even though it shows they closed ‘the case’ back on July 13th…and now she is saying I should have it by Aug 31st and she will check with me then to not call her before…so it takes 21 MORE days to release the damn thing to me??? That is if it is even “worked” by Aug 10th…it’s all just a stall tactic, BS game and is criminal…so frustrated- just want to cry

    I’m going to post a phone number if you are having issues call it and tell them your problem with the IRS this way they will be forced to release refunds quickly.. We have to stand together if we want things to get done. Please let’s make some noise

    Hello all. I just wanted to know if SBTPG deposits the same day they receive the deposit from the IRS? I see they got it today and was wondering if it will possibly go to my bank today. My DDD is for 8/8. It’s been a long time coming..lol
