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.

    @Irsblues: They received mine on Feb.15th, approximately. I went under audit the end of January, my difference on my return was the self employment. I sat with a as of date of March 6th until about the second part of June and the date went to June something and a week later I updated to the ddd. I was lucky I could view my transcripts online otherwise I wouldn’t have known there was any movement. And it took a week for them to review what I had sent. Honestly, I know people say filing early is not good but since it went into audit so early, I was in the first batches for 2017 to be audited after they had the 2016’s completed otherwise I think I would still be waiting since they go in order.

    @Irsblues: So sorry to hear that. I wondered how you were doing since I haven’t seen a post from you. I assumed you were finished with this awful year. It took about a week for them to look at my paperwork and lift the audit after it sat in a pile for 5 months. Hopefully you’ll see a change soon.

    I am still here. Still in audit. Called last week and they said they are just now working on documents received in March. My documents were received in June. My TA closed my case without me knowing. So they said I have to contact a supervisor to reopen case but its no guarantee it will be reopen. So its looking like November before I hear anything.

    @Nika911: I kept watching yesterday to see if you updated, frustrating as hell for you I know but hang in there. Remember its possible it won’t update on wmr so keep checking your checking acct in case you get a deposit without the wmr changing. I have seen a few do that.

    Good and bad news. Good is better than bad. My refund was FINALLY processed and a check will be mailed on Sept. 21st. Bad news is my credits were taken … Why? Because I didn’t fill out the form to receive credits after disallowance. I filled that form out for 2017 and I was under the impression that you only had to fill it out once. I filed 2016 and they used that excuse. So I am only getting part of my refund. But the good news is… I have to fax in the form and they will issue the rest of my refund. Hoping to see that in 9 weeks I guess.

I read somewhere down the feed that happened to someone but I don’t know if she got her money yet or how soon she seen a change. But is the next wmr update soon? I lost touch because the wait turned into just forgetting about my refund all together ya know.

    @Nika911: If I remember right I thought it was anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. And I have seen some people go from id verify to ddd as soon as a week on the next update. I have my fingers crossed that maybe transcripts will reflect something today and your wmr will change tomorrow. Hopefully….

Got a stupid letter telling me to call them and send in a corrected w 2 form. Then I called. Was told I shouldn’t have amended and she see where I cancelled TA services. Aug 4th but I only needed to ID VERIFY SMH. And DID that she say Aug 4th. SMH and to just wait 9 weeks mumbo jumbo. Hopefully I’ll see something in 2 weeks. Don’t have no more energy to wait. No more weeks. Been waiting since Jan. 24th. Just to be told to wait again smh

    @[email protected]: I did and had no luck there. But a few weeks ago, I received a letter in the mail that I was assigned a new TA. She stated she’d contact me on 9/14 and hopes to have my issue resolved by 10/27. I’m praying this will be the case. I’m so stressed out!! I’m literally praying to keep my sanity.

    @Black_Skinbyrd: Are you able to see transcripts at all either by mail or online? It’s possible they will be sending you a letter to ask for proof for dependents and income. I have filed with the same dependents, same filing status, except my income changed and was lower and this year was the first year I filed self employment. I went into audit and had to verify everything which turned out okay but took some months to get resolved. If you can view your transcript that would really help to see what’s going on.

    We got an advocate back in June and he has done absolutely nothing to help expedite our return. We have had two IRS reps make mistakes which initially caused a delay and now we’ve been waiting forever it’s been 12 weeks since the IRS has received our return and is still processing! What should we do? Why is this happening and why do they call them tax advocates when they are impossible to reach and offer no advocacy?

    I filed by Fax 2016 May 17th. Got and completed an ID Verify on July 2nd. I called many times and they said wait the 9 weeks. I filed 2017 with SAME dependents, same employment and relatively same income. And I received 2017 in 2 weeks. Its upsetting. When my 9 weeks was up a few days ago. I called and still nothing. All they would tell me is ID Verify takes 9 full weeks. I called yesterday and a lady dug deeper and said I would more than likely receive a letter, and that my refund was reduced by the EIC. She gave me the amount and it is exactly my federal income tax withheld. Will they give that to me? I can imagine I have to prove my dependents now…. I’m angry because they gave me 2017 with no issues. Same information. Why in the world do they do this? I’ve gotten no letters nothing. :-(

    @Itsmetho: Honestly I don’t know. It’s kind of long but if you look at the Irs tax code definitions there may be something that might reference it . If I was in your situation, I would be looking at those. They are a list of code numbers that identify whats on your transcript.

    Hello,
    I had to amend my taxes in May which was received by the IRS according to the wmar site May 11, 2018. Well the sixteen weeks have came and gone. The site said to Take Action and call the 1800 number which I did. However for some reason which I do not understand I didn’t pass the security questions and waa given an appointment two weeks from now to go into my local IRS office with photo ID to find out what’s going on. This has been a very long process. I originally filed 1/29 and had to already verify my ID in person in April, received a CPO5 which was up in June. Now this! Anyone been through this?

    @Jalisa (Not logged in): my story is very similar to yours, but I kept having to send in docs to my tax advocate but then in July my TA said they had until 8/15 to accept and then when I talked to my TA on 8/15 I was informed that everything was approved and all adjustments were made and I would get my refund on or before 9/27 I called the irs and they verified, so in my infinite ability to not trust people I called the irs on 8/27 and practically say “hey I thought I was supposed to have my money by today 8/27” and they said no it’s 9/27 so I’m trying to patiently wait but my WMR has not changed since February and still says take action, but the IRS and my TA says that most times that doesn’t change until you get your deposit, at this point I just don’t know

    @Praystomydeitiesfortheirblessings:
    Good morning!!
    If you used an online or tax prep, they should have a tab where you can amend. I used TurboTax and had to amend also. It was pretty easy. You will have to mail it in though, unless you have a TA

    So after 6 months they are now telling me to amend. I have no idea how to amend myself. Do I have to go to a tax prep or it’s sort of kind of easy?

    Ok so after months of beefing told wait and further review and see if you get a letter and all kind of bs I finally get an answer. Apparently whoever put in that my verification was successful never finished putting it in so after an hour long phone call and being transferred to every damn department I get a worker who tells me what’s wrong and says that now it’s another 9 weeks bc it’s being processed as if I did the verification yesterday. Smh

    @Stillwaitinghere: Maybe in the morning, there will be a change on the Wmr. I was really hoping some people would see some transcript changes today.

    @Chrissy: I know in some situations it is possible to get a credit on child tax credits but I’m unsure what the income requirement is. It would not hurt to check and see.

    So this year I’ve only worked for literally one full month and made less than a gross of $1,500 due to me having my final child and not wanting to leave her. Is there anyway possible to claim three kids with such low income? Would I qualify for any credits? Has anyone been in this situation and actually got money back?

    Still here. Just hadn’t posted lately due to so much going on. I did not ask for a TA, the rep said I needed one due to how long it had been. I have literally called her everyday for the last 4 weeks and no call back. Every time I call the IRS they say I have to refer to her. However I did speak with a rep who said I needed to amend my 2016 and 2017 due to withholding being off. I’ve completed the amended but I can’t fax them in because I have a TA but I hadn’t sent them because she won’t call back. Any suggestions?

    @Dean: I received the same notice then weeks after I was due my refund, received another letter requesting documents proving my dependents were mine, etc. You may want to get a TA at this point.
