Just filed today (TaxAct) and was accepted within minutes. I’ll try to remember to post any updates – when they happen. :)
- February 26, 2016 at 3:43 pm #4144177
1/26I filed and was accepted
2/ 22 called IRS after no movement and was given the info to fax my 8962 and 1095-A.
2/26 called again and was told they haven’t received anything in their system.
Uggggh I just want my money. Keep getting told it can take up to 6 weeks now. Seriously feel like screaming!
Anyone had a shorter time period after faxing over info and getting their money?February 20, 2016 at 9:18 am #4142559
Just wanted to update and thank everyone for all their comments. I’ve been following this thread for a while for info and everyone has been so helpful.
Lost my WMR bars: 2/13
Verified ID: 2/17
WMR updated 2/20 with a DDD of 2/24February 20, 2016 at 4:12 am #4142438
I also lost my bars and tax topic last weekFebruary 20, 2016 at 4:11 am #4142436
Just wanted to update everyone and give hope..
Filed 1/26 had no movement for 2 weeks called irs and had to id verify. I id verified me on the 10th and husband last week was told wait 9 weeks. just got ddd for the 24th. Good luck everyoneFebruary 20, 2016 at 2:17 am #4142427
Filed and accepted as previously stated 1/26. IdVerify on 2/16 Said up to 6 weeks. Still says processing but I can order transcript as of today.February 20, 2016 at 12:14 am #4142406
Filed 1/26 was stuck on one bar for 2 weeks so I called irs and was told that I needed to id verify so i called and did it on 2/11 then did my husbands last week online was told it would take up to 9 weeks. I lost my bar and went to your tax refund is being processed the day after I id verified my husband. Still have no bars but was finally able to order refund transcript today. Anybody know if that means I should be getting my ddd in the tomorrow update?February 19, 2016 at 2:47 pm #4142285
I have no idea what is going on. I filed and was accepted on 1/26/2016 and as of this very moment my WMR still says: “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.”. It has NEVER moved from that nor has the site ever said anything else. No bars ever either. I have no idea what the issue is this time. My 21 days was up this past Tuesday. I was in a similar situation last tax season where it ended up being ID Fraud Protection so it took an extra 3 weeks on top of the original 3 weeks to get my money, but at least back then my WMR screen had at least made some progress. As far as my transcripts, I have tried to pull those up, but because I just bought a house this past year,my address has been updated and the system is recognizing it yet. It’s not recognizing my previous address either. I am at a total loss right now and I have no idea what is going on. My next move is going to be calling the IRS directly to find out.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to what is going on that you can give me? I am really getting sick and tired of this. This is now 2 years in a row that they have taken their good old time refunding my money. It’s not even a little bit of money. It’s a decent amount of money that I would like back. So aggravated!!!February 19, 2016 at 11:51 am #4142189
Filed 1/26, Accepted 1/26, Bar and tax code disappeared 2/14

lets see if its true will post tmrFebruary 17, 2016 at 4:05 pm #4141287
Get this, filed on the 25th, accepted the 26th. Called today because it’s been 22 days. They wouldn’t even open my account because they said it won’t be 21 days until the 19th. How did I lose days? Well, the IRS is claiming they didn’t get it until the 29th of January. Either turbo tax sucks or the IRS is lying to get more time. I think this whole process is ridiculous.February 17, 2016 at 1:50 pm #4141224
Called 3 different times between today and yesterday. At first we were told we need to ID verify and then we were told we didn’t need to. They told us that we should give them until April 1st and if we still haven’t gotten a return to call back. How stressful.February 16, 2016 at 2:56 pm #4140696
Their ID verify phone line said their system is down right now and to call back in a hour. Failed my online IDverify :( so hopefully i am able to get it done over the phone… if i am ever able to reach anyone. tax season this year be crazy. lol wish me luck! wishing luck to all of you! hope good things happen for everyone!February 16, 2016 at 12:43 pm #4140622
I called again, they pulled up my file and said I needed to ID Verify which I just completed online and it says up to 6 weeks. So I guess waiting again.February 16, 2016 at 11:53 am #4140591
So no it can take less time.. I verified online and by phone
@ray have you tried verifying?February 16, 2016 at 11:39 am #4140576
I filed and accepted on 1/26 as well. Today is the 21st day so I called to see if there was a problem. Apparently the IRS System has crashed again according to the agent I spoke with. He stated he couldn’t check anything all the systems were down. He told me to try again in a couple hours or tomorrow. So on to day 22 I guess….February 16, 2016 at 10:41 am #4140548
I filed the 26th finally got in touch with a Tax advocate that informed me I need to verify my ID, after doing so he said it can take up to 9 weeks. Has anyone had to do this and gotten their return before 9 weeks?February 14, 2016 at 2:47 pm #4139833
So woke up this morning to no bars at all and the message saying still being processed and a date will be given when available. What does it mean? Considering I filed the 26th and I was told there is no offsets and all that nonsense. Will someone please give a answer.February 14, 2016 at 1:48 pm #4139822
I do have one question…. My WMR says now that my refund is still being processed and a date will be provided when available…. Has anyone gotten this message and if so how long after this message did you receive your refund… Thanks in advanceFebruary 14, 2016 at 1:45 pm #4139821
Still waitingFebruary 14, 2016 at 1:36 pm #4139819
Filed and accepted 1/26 had one bar and tax topic 152. Still no movement so called irs on 2/11 was told I had to id verify so called and verified over the phone was told I passed and it would take up to 9 weeks to get my return. Woke up this morning and checked wmr and have lost all bars but still have 152. So frustrated idk what that means since I lost my barsFebruary 13, 2016 at 11:53 am #4139440
Filed the 26th and accepted the 26th…
No update or movement at all still…
No ID verify..
What the hell is going on. Tuesday is 21 days.February 13, 2016 at 11:07 am #4139412
I finally have a DD 2/18! I dont know wth took so long but I pray all us 1/26 filers get DD this week! Good luck!February 13, 2016 at 9:14 am #4139296
YAY!!! Me three!!! DDD 2/18!!!! Finally! It feels like it took F O R E V E R but i look back at my calendar last year and it took one month to get my refund. This year, less than a month (just at 21 days), crazy… Thank you Jesus!February 13, 2016 at 5:49 am #4139165
@kit0kat2009: I, too, checked at nearly 1 am and there was nothing. Woke up again around 4:30 and checked again…DDD 2/18!!! I am so relieved I could cry.February 13, 2016 at 4:40 am #4139136
. Almost woke my baby when I screamed.. I figured what the hell.. I checked at 2 am and nothing!! Check again at 4:30 am..
The nightmare of last year made me crazy!!!
I hope and wish all id verifiers to get processed fair and fast!!
Now my brain is still going crazy.. It’s like you have a DDD.. They can’t take it back now.. Or can they ?.. No that’s crazy.. Or is it??.. I should screen cap it.. How would that help?.. I think the nightmare of last year and it started this year has officially cracked me.. I’ll forever be slightly crazier..
I couldn’t order and still can’t get transcriptsFebruary 12, 2016 at 8:21 pm #4138994
Hi, fellow 26ers,
I have tried all day on the phone and the website to order my return transcripts, but the phone just told me they were not available and the website says my information doesn’t match…So, I waited and tried again about 20 minutes ago. Guess what!? I was FINALLY able to order my return script. Hopefully this means things are moving forward. I suggest trying again if you couldn’t get them earlier. Praying for DDDs for all of us tomorrow!February 12, 2016 at 4:31 pm #4138903
I’m not sure…. I still have no movement on anything… state or federal. :/ I called them about my federal yesterday and was told it looked like nothing was wrong and that it is still processing.. e filed 1/26 and they didn’t accept it till 1/28. They didn’t say i needed to verify anything, so hopefully that is correct. He did say i would have to wait the 21 days to call back in if i don’t see anything by my 21 days.February 12, 2016 at 2:32 pm #4138797
Yes, we got our State yesterday morning, California, filed about a week and a half before.
Federal….still waiting…patiently. Since I filed married joint, you think they want to identify both people? I was told I was pulled aside for identity confirmation but have been sent back into normal processing since then, just wanted to make sure… This was about a week and a half ago.February 12, 2016 at 2:09 pm #4138783
Just wanted everyone to know that my husband finally called the irs. They said since we had an identity theft issue last year that it would take the same amount of time to process our return this year. Didn’t get out money until May last year. *feeling stressed*February 12, 2016 at 2:01 pm #4138777
Is*** anyone still waiting on their state refund also?February 12, 2016 at 2:00 pm #4138775
Has anyone still waiting for their state refund also?February 12, 2016 at 10:33 am #4138537
Filed 1/26, Accepted 1/26, bars disappears on 1/29, No Tax Topic either.
Called IRS today, spoke with someone, who told me that they didn’t actually accept my return until the 29th. so instead of 21 days being Tuesday of next week, it is pushed back to Friday 2/19.
I just don’t understand why when you get someone on the phone they refuse to offer up any information. It is extremely annoying.February 12, 2016 at 10:27 am #4138524
Filed 1/26 ordered transcript 2/5 verified id 2/10 and still on WMR the processing message. No change anywhere else alsoFebruary 12, 2016 at 9:55 am #4138469
I filed 1/26 and accepted 1/26
As of today 2/12/16 – my refund has not been approved- My bar has been gone for 2 weeks now. I have the normal your refund processing bla-bla-bla- I called IRS 2x first time I was told must wait 21 days and call back- 2x I called I was told they are behind-but I asked how is it that people filed after me have gotten dates or refund- she than said we have different filters that refunds go through so maybe that is the reason.
Sounded like a b.s. to me but she said she did not see any audit on my account. I am so fustrated!!! Many years of filing never waited this long.February 10, 2016 at 2:13 pm #4137136
Well, i called that number and used that extension and was told he couldn’t see if i needed to do anything and to wait the 21 days. So hopefully thats a good thing! Thanks for the info people! Good luck everyone!February 10, 2016 at 1:36 pm #4137110
Thanks!February 10, 2016 at 12:58 pm #4137064
To get live person call this # (800) 829-0582 ext 652. I explained to the rep that I had no bars and tax topic and would like to know if something was going on. She kindly explained that I needed to call the ID verify hotline which I did and I was only on the phone for 20 min tops. Could be longer for others. After they review your ID your tax return could take up to 9 weeks but I’ve heard of people getting it sooner than that so..try that.February 10, 2016 at 11:13 am #4136947
After I push where I needed to be I kept hitting 0 til it transferred meFebruary 10, 2016 at 11:06 am #4136941
How did you get to a live person?February 10, 2016 at 11:03 am #4136933February 10, 2016 at 11:00 am #4136927
Called and verified today. Anybody still waiting…call to get live person to see if you need ID verified.February 10, 2016 at 10:53 am #4136921
Simple question like where have you lived in the past and jobs. And they didn’t want paper work from me just made sure I was who I said I was by security questions.February 10, 2016 at 10:41 am #4136907
@amber what questions do they ask to verify your ID? or do you have to send in paperwork? Just want to be prepared if i have to do the same thing.February 10, 2016 at 10:39 am #4136902
I called the irs at the regular number on the site. I lied a bit and told them I filed on the 19th so I would make it a 21 day marker. It took 40 mins on hold so be prepared. They then told me to call another number to verify.February 10, 2016 at 10:36 am #4136897
What number do you call to see if you need to verify your ID? Anyone know if they will send a letter or give you a code online if you need to verify? Or do you just have to call?February 10, 2016 at 10:13 am #4136867
How do you find that out?February 10, 2016 at 9:51 am #4136835
I too was pulled aside to identity confirmation and was told it set me back a week but am processing as normal, should expect an update the week of the 20thFebruary 10, 2016 at 8:58 am #4136764
So I was getting anxious and I called and lied just a bit to the irs. Anywho come to find out they have to verify me. And for some reason they couldn’t tell me this last week when I called. Omg I’m broken atm but I was wondering how long after they verify do you get your return.February 10, 2016 at 7:08 am #4136607
@kenkayy in not sure what that means but mine says it too but I able still able to see the percentage.
@esepp114 I was able to order transcript on 2/5 but still haven’t received them in mail yet but it hasn’t been 3 weeks for that lol. I’m in the same boat as you on this. I’m a house cleaner and it is slow for me every year around this time and I rely on my taxes to get me through until my work picks up.February 10, 2016 at 6:59 am #4136597
My percentage of people whom got accepted on 1/26/16 disappeared on turbotax how it shows this
Your federal return was accepted in the refund amount of Xxxxx That makes you one step closer to getting your refund.
9 times out of 10, the IRS issues refunds in less than 21 days from when a return gets filed. Paper check refunds may take several weeks to receive by mail.
Any idea what this means?February 10, 2016 at 6:59 am #4136596
@amber I tried offering my return transcripts and can’t get those yet either. I hate to be so impatient since its been just 15 days, but I lost my job two weeks before Christmas and I have two girls I raise on my own. Like everyone else, I NEED my money!February 10, 2016 at 6:55 am #4136593
Check TT they said 58% paid and I checked with SBTPG and they don’t have it either. And of course checked my bank account and still nothing. The 17th is the 21 days.lets hope we get ours soonFebruary 10, 2016 at 6:45 am #4136579
I am starting to really stress. I’m sure I won’t get an update until at least Saturday, so no refund for me within the 21 days.
I haven’t gotten any letters or codes yet. ..Would it cause more problems or should I go ahead and IDVerifyFebruary 10, 2016 at 6:43 am #4136574
I just got my money today I filled on the 26. Wmr never updated it kept saying they can not provide information on my return. I woke up today with money in my account. Checked Santa Barbara yesterday they did not have my info either. The money came form sb so be patient out there. I was freaking out cause I never even had a bar it was as if the irs never received my return but I got it today with no warning.February 10, 2016 at 5:52 am #4136516
Checked at 5 am… Funds received!! See ya’ll next year!! Good luck!!February 10, 2016 at 5:29 am #4136497
No surprise still sitting filled with negative emotions at one bar
Seriously they have a week
Then real anger comes out and a tax advocate will be on my side!!February 10, 2016 at 5:17 am #4136490
2/10 ddd, showed up sometime between 10pm last night and 430 am today. Bank with PNC.
Glad that is over!
Hopefully not many others are waiting still.February 10, 2016 at 12:02 am #4136232
Turbo Tax says we 1/26er’s who filed through them, 58 % have received their refunds..
Just wish I could be one of the people in that group!February 9, 2016 at 5:13 pm #4135796
State: Pa, Single, Paid all fees and ID is verified. Used TT Premium
Just called PNC bank, notified me quickly that they had no pending deposits and i should check back in a few days (lol @ a few days). Im hoping that 2/10 is the actual date, I’m sure it is. My buddy filed 1/25 and already got his money last Friday.
Patience is a virtue, good luck everyone.February 9, 2016 at 1:18 pm #4135331
St. Ann, MOFebruary 9, 2016 at 11:12 am #4135078
I’m right there with you guys. Still on processing nothing has changed since day I filed:(February 9, 2016 at 10:21 am #4134930
I just checked…again. Mine was up, but that isn’t saying much. Nothing has changed – looks just as it did 2 days after I filed.February 9, 2016 at 10:14 am #4134922
Just checked WMR and it is unavailable atm. Let’s all hope that they are updating everyone like me in the system.February 9, 2016 at 8:22 am #4134663
I know how you feel. I should have known better than to check, but I did and only stressed myself out. :(February 9, 2016 at 7:44 am #4134591
Well woke up this morning hoping and praying for just a change or something, but still nothing. Processing message is getting really old especially when my sister filed days after me and she got a DDD for 2/10. This happened to me last year too though so I should have know.
ANY CHANGE FOR OTHER!February 8, 2016 at 10:46 pm #4134345
Let’s add that the poor guineas involved in the 1/26 experiment
So far 18 % have survived..
Let’s check back on day 21 to see the official survival rate according to the IRS and Turbo Tax
Considering it’s only 1 week.. The odds don’t look good…February 8, 2016 at 10:42 pm #4134343
Exactly if some more agents would just do their jobs and give people something… But you have agents who may have limitations to what they can see… However they can see if you are being sent a letter and if you need to verify your Identity… Yet most of them don’t! While it’s not going to lower their call volume.. They will however be doing a job, which they are paid to do… I can’t imagine the IRS employee training is be rude and vague, never give them any info, don’t forget to say 21 days at least once during every call..
It’s even more insane since they have No Method and the system crashes yearly.. Let’s just give up on filing in the first 2 weeks.. At least if you don’t feel like being the guinea pig..February 8, 2016 at 10:31 pm #4134328
I do wish they (the IRS) would incorporate a little method to their madness – as far as processing returns as they come. I am really stressing this year because it’s just so different for me than it has been in the past. And, quite frankly, I just don’t like not knowing what’s going on. Lol. I’ll be more than happy just knowing all is OKAY and my refund is coming. I will wait it out, try to be more patient than I’ve been lately.February 8, 2016 at 9:58 pm #4134297
I’m just sitting here.. Still so angry as everyone around me act like the money is burning holes in their pockets…
Meanwhile I’m like, “I just want to fix my car and pay some bills.”
Seriously not happy with people who filed after us getting money first.. Id Verify or Not!! A line is a line.. What makes others get to cut and be pushed forward! Meanwhile we’re like “Hey, back here! WTF is happening? We’re still back here, not done!”
Then they shout “21 days.. We still got some time! We don’t have to issue a refund fast, just eventually…”February 8, 2016 at 7:38 pm #4134209
Same problem here, no change. Still no return scripts available. I called today, against my better judgement, and she gave me the 21 day jumbo. She did say to keep an eye on it over the next couple of days there are updates coming. All she asked me was when I filed, so I’m sure that was just a general estimate of an update as well.February 8, 2016 at 5:34 pm #4134052
I have the same problem @amber… just waiting.February 8, 2016 at 5:13 pm #4134015
My husband spoke to one of those rare agents..
You know that are actually nice or hopefully..
She said they have received my verification and now it’s just about processing…
She says they can’t see whole lot.. A Yes or NO on Refund Accepted.. Then a date if Yes
However I don’t know if she meant they are still processing my verification.. or If it’s my return only needing processed…
I don’t see how it could take that long to process the verification.. Considering if you get all the answers right.. Bam. Done..
I still haven’t been able to get transcripts..
She also said the only error she sees is we didn’t file in 2012.. I honestly forgot. First pregnancy knocked me out. Literally.. Soo sick and tired…. We didn’t even make enough to file.. Worst part was the beginning around tax time..February 8, 2016 at 5:02 pm #4134004
I was able to order my transcript on 2/5 and they are being mailed. But still have the same processing messageFebruary 8, 2016 at 4:20 pm #4133951

federal status: your return is still processing. A return date will show when available.
………February 6, 2016 at 11:26 am #4131720
Approved this morning 02/06/2015….DDD is scheduled for 02/10/2016….
Not sure what the delay was but happy my bars are finally moving….February 6, 2016 at 11:22 am #4131712
I checked WMR and I got a DDD of 02/10/16, finally!!!!!!!!!????????????????February 6, 2016 at 10:15 am #4131581
Ordered return transcript 2/5/2016. Woke up to 2/10/2016 DDD.February 6, 2016 at 10:12 am #4131572February 6, 2016 at 9:48 am #4131505
Was able to order return transcript yesterday and checked wmr last night at 1am est and it was at one bar. Woke up this morning and checked and it’s at 2 bars with a DDD of 2/10.February 6, 2016 at 9:32 am #4131476
Same here, no bars, same message that it’s still processing I filed and was accepted 1/26February 6, 2016 at 9:27 am #4131464
Still no bars on WMR same message (a refund date will provided when available) blah blah blah. Anyone else having this issueFebruary 6, 2016 at 9:20 am #4131447
I still cannot order my return script and I wasn’t one of the lucky ones to wake up with a DDD. I still have no bars, the generic “refund still processing” and tax code 152 (that I’ve had since 3 days after filing). Couldn’t order my account transcript until Friday…My guess is I won’t update until next Saturday…since I’m a weekly.February 6, 2016 at 8:57 am #4131398
bars disappeared: 2/3
ordered transcripts: 2/5
good luck allFebruary 6, 2016 at 7:10 am #4131195
2/10 for me also! Happy Dance!!!

DDD 2/10/16February 6, 2016 at 4:06 am #4130885
Was just able to order my return transcript so I’m super hopeful tomorrow morning there will be movement on WMR. If not, at the very least a deposit this upcoming week. Never cared or wondered about the transcripts before, really just wanted to see if I could order them and was just happy I was allowed.February 5, 2016 at 10:20 pm #4130643
I file 1/26 9am est with TT and I got accepted by 2pm that same day. I checked WMR the next day and had one bar and the following day the bars we gone and I had the same ole same message almost everyone get ( return is processing and a refund date will be provided when available) and it has been this way ever since. I called the all the numbers their was to call I have my transcript being sent to me via mail and I have no hold ups but yet no one could provide me with a DDD. Idk anymore :-/February 5, 2016 at 9:00 pm #4130549
I see everyone saying they can order their transcripts I could only request them by mail. Is that how y’all ordered them too? It’s never taken more then 4 days to get my return and I have no status change since I filed on the 26th. Starting to get frustrated.February 5, 2016 at 7:31 pm #4130411
Called IRS and was advised my return was accepted and had some errors but since have been cleared and is now processing as normal and to expect an update by Feb 21 week. She said no red flags and no offset, error set me back about a week
Taxslayer | efiled & accepted 1/26 | no bars since 1/31 | Topic 152February 5, 2016 at 7:09 pm #4130384
I was finally able to order my account transcript this morning. Still, no return. No update or changed codes on WMR. At this point, I don’t know what to think. Surely, if I were flagged it would be updated to show to call on WMR, right? Is it still possible to get a DDD without having a return transcript available?February 5, 2016 at 10:58 am #4130045
Filed & accepted 1/26 around 7PM.
State came in two days DD.
Tax lady gave us a DDD 2/5/16 for federal.
WMR on one bar since day one. NO MOVEMENT!
I was able to order return transcripts this morning around 9:30AM CST.
I’m trolling all the sites, like a lot of you, and from what I’ve read the whole IRS glitch thing shouldn’t be a problem for us, but it’s the government, I’m sure there’s some BS there. The actual WMR site has not been updated since 2/3/16 as indicated on the bottom right of the main WMR page. I have no idea what that means, so feel free to enlighten me and everyone else. A lot of people are seeing DD in their banks before the site indicated it, so call your banks and cards. Calling is pretty useless as they won’t look anything up unless it’s been 21 days. Good luck to all! I will be calling my bank and trolling the internet for the day for the answer. I’ll post with anything new! Fingers crossed for us all!!!February 5, 2016 at 10:51 am #4130038
Filed 1/26 and received 1/26 irs really received it on 1/28 one bar still processing but was able to finally order return transcript this morning. Here’s to hoping ddd tomorrow morning! It’s coming guys….. Keep your heads upFebruary 5, 2016 at 10:01 am #4129993
@meechie @jodi I also am at the one bar standstill on WMR but was able to order my return transcripts early this morning. I think that if there wasn’t the outage issue, we’d have our money today, so here’s to hoping for tomorrow or Monday!February 5, 2016 at 10:00 am #4129992
Same here. Got up and checked wmr. No progress there but I was able to get my return transcript. Probably see an update tonight or tomorrow night for the ppl who got their return transcriptFebruary 5, 2016 at 8:56 am #4129987
filed 1/26, accepted 1/26. All bars disappeared on 1/29. No bars back yet, but was able to order my return transcript this morning. Any idea of what that means?February 5, 2016 at 8:55 am #4129986
Filed and accepted 1/26. WMR still at one bar, but it says I will receive my return transcript in 5-10 days. Yesterday I couldn’t get that, so there seems to be progress, we’re just not SEEING it.February 5, 2016 at 8:37 am #4129968
Filed through TT on 1/26 and accepted on 1/26 – still only 1 bar on WMR as of this morning, BUT I was able to order my return transcripts this morning?
You would think that one of the most powerful/advanced nations in the world would be able to handle their own income tax process efficiently, wouldn’t you?February 5, 2016 at 7:04 am #4129817
Im not happy? patience it is,i hope ill get approved before my bdayFebruary 5, 2016 at 6:48 am #4129790
I still cannot order return scripts, but finally able to order account. Does that mean I’ve “processed” and am awaiting refund approval?
Last year, I’d had my taxes back within the 13 days. Staying to get a little nervous.February 5, 2016 at 6:24 am #4129765
Wmr 1 bar
Able to order my return transcript as of 6:15et this morning.February 5, 2016 at 6:20 am #4129753
1 bar still on WMR BUT I could final order return transcripts today at like 6:10 am eastern time. Little bit of progress, I will take it!February 5, 2016 at 6:01 am #4129722
So I just checked WMR still at one bar no ddd but I can order return transcript I hope this is a good sign of me getting my money soon!February 4, 2016 at 4:16 pm #4129005
So I called..
Rep didn’t want to look at this years..
After getting her to pull and send transcripts..
She tells me she needs more info based on last years ID issue….
Being polite the whole time I asked if/how this would affect this year…
Apparently last years did mess up this years! Meaning proving I’m me and such again!!
This also means late refund!! Seeing as proving you are you with 5 questions.. Well that takes them 6-8 weeks to read.. Said they would be sending a letter soon..
SICK OF THIS… THIRD YEAR WE’VE DONE THIS!!!
At this point outsourcing would run smoother!
Heck Google could probably handle them in an extremely timely manner!
Careful if it say unable to get transcripts and has a form number!!February 4, 2016 at 3:36 pm #4128958February 4, 2016 at 3:34 pm #4128956
I wonder sometimes if people actually read through anything (besides what’s on here). Geesh! We filed. We’ll get it. I hope I do tomorrow. If not, well, it’s payday for me anyway ?February 4, 2016 at 3:15 pm #4128913
Sorry the word not shouldn’t be in there. It should say with technical issues and WMR site. Oh plus the transcripts are glitching as well.February 4, 2016 at 3:13 pm #4128907
That’s funny that you got that response because I was told differently about an hour ago. My husband and I filed same day and he has a DDD of tomorrow….I called to see why he did but I didn’t and I was told it was the luck of the drawl. We both had the same exact things filed except he claimed our 2 year old and I claimed the new twins born in Christmas eve. I even asked if mine was held up because they’re so new and was told no because I submitted all of their information including SS cards and birth certificates. They said the issue has to deal with them not technical issues and the WMR site. They are still processing and depositingFebruary 4, 2016 at 2:49 pm #4128872
Sorry I’m not buying that nonsenseFebruary 4, 2016 at 2:46 pm #4128868
………really? I mean, really? It’s like your trolling without even reading anything about the irs situation. Well, let me inform you, by the OFFICIAL IRS STATEMENT it says that 1) this doesn’t effect people who already have approved filings, and 2) that 9 out 10 filers will still receive their return in the 21 day period. That is regardless of when you file. For the love of anything, if your gonna troll, at least get your facts lined up and don’t come to a lynching without your pitchforkFebruary 4, 2016 at 2:34 pm #4128852
JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH IRS AND THEY TOLD ME WITH THE SYSTEM FAILURE THAT MOST PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO WAIT A EXTRA 2 TO 3 WEEKS TO RECEIVE THEIR REFUND. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE. WITH ALL THE GOVERNMENTS TECHNOLOGY WHY CANT THEY GET THIS RIGHT, YOU’RE SYSTEMS NOT PREPARED TO HANDLE ALL THE TRAFFIC. ……. REALLY
This is for efilers mail returns even longerFebruary 4, 2016 at 10:43 am #4128457
I’m guessing that the most of us that are waiting will get an update Saturday for our DDD. It will probably be for Tuesday the 9th. That will be 2 weeks from our filing dates. I never get mine early. Last year I didn’t get mine until april 15th bc of all the identity stuff going on..February 4, 2016 at 10:37 am #4128448
Their system must be still down if people are getting that message. This is really frustrating.
IRS shows they got it 1/28
1 bar no movement at all.
Just that it’s processing- still ??☹February 4, 2016 at 9:50 am #4128380
I just called the transcript request # from my last post and it also states they are “currently experiencing technical difficulties”
So that’s that…February 4, 2016 at 9:20 am #4128327
No approval yet??? accepted Jan 26February 4, 2016 at 8:08 am #4128238
Just checked for transcripts – no message stating the system is down, however, when I tried for my return transcript, I got this message:
“Your request cannot be completed. Please contact us at 1-800-908-9946, our automated telephone self service, to order an account or a return transcript.”
Don’t know what that means, if it’s still down or not. Still no movement on WMR. Maybe our money will be there tomorrow, which seems like the right timeframe for me anyway.February 4, 2016 at 7:50 am #4128213
I still have no movement. I’m not sure if that’s because of the system outages, though. Just because we can access WMR doesn’t necessarily mean it’s up and running with updated information. I am not getting my hopes up for a DD tomorrow, but will start really stressing if I don’t have a DDD by this weekend for next week.
I haven’t received anything in the mail yet either. TT said if there was a problem or my return was flagged that it would have been done within a few days and I would have been notified by TT and the IRS. Has anyone else been told that?February 4, 2016 at 7:18 am #4128185
Filed 1/26 (Tax Act with fees taken out)
Still on 1 bar as of this morning and can’t access transcripts ?
Is there ANYONE else that filed on 1/26 who has a DD yet????February 4, 2016 at 7:07 am #4128176
@jodi… Well I tried that number and just says they received it and that it is processing. I guess tomorrow morning cant come soon enough. Does anyone know if they deposit through the weekend or is it spicific days like fridays only for example.February 4, 2016 at 6:47 am #4128163
There is a 800 number you can call but who knows if it’s accurate. I was finally able to go in and try and order transcripts this morning, still not available and no movement on WMR app. But hey Michigan is on the ball and issued me a refund date for Monday. So I guess something is better than nothing.
I would really like my federal tho.February 4, 2016 at 5:28 am #4128113
UPDATE- 0530 No changes :(
I am fully aware of the system shutdown….. so I am not sure if WMR is up and running or not however I was able to check and it is still at 1 bar… Hope the system is still broken and we wake up to our funds tomorrow morning… Still not giving up hope…lol.
I wonder if the automated way to check is down as well, does anyone know?February 3, 2016 at 11:58 pm #4128002
@EVERYONE – IRS is reported network problems with their e-file system and WMR.February 3, 2016 at 10:29 pm #4127906
I’m not getting my hopes up. My friend filed his on the 22nd and hasn’t gotten his yet but it’s his first time ever filing. But I am guessing I won’t get mine until next weekFebruary 3, 2016 at 7:40 pm #4127673
Accepted 26 within minutes
Just saw on the news that efile is down so the IRS is not accepting returns by efile. Also said that WMR may not be updated again until possibly Thursday. It’s possible us 26th filers will still get our return on the 5th but due to systems being down or whatever is goin on that they weren’t able to update our WMR. I’m hopeful.February 3, 2016 at 6:40 pm #4127625
Is anyone able to get into wmr?February 3, 2016 at 6:25 pm #4127613
Does anyone know when the wmr site updates? I tried ordering transcripts but it seems the website is down for it. Hopefully it updates tonight but we will see.. not getting my hopes up.February 3, 2016 at 4:37 pm #4127508
Last year i filed jan 21, got my ddon 30th,yr before feb 6th got dd on feb 13. This yr filed on jan 27th. Wmr hasnt updated and sbbt shows nothing pending for 2/5. Im so over this shit this year.February 3, 2016 at 3:26 pm #4127424
Filed 1/26/16. Accepted 1/27/18. Irs began processing mine on 1/28/16. Still 1 bar. Last year it took over 21 days due to verifying my id. Let’s hope that’s not the case this year.February 3, 2016 at 2:33 pm #4127360
I saw a bunch of IRS Refund cycle charts that were supposedly updated and basically it showed that returns accepted by the 29th should have a DD of 2/5. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see ?February 3, 2016 at 1:34 pm #4127266
I am going overseas for over a week and I am afraid IRS might send a letter. I filed using TT.
My question is how would I know whether or not IRS have sent any letter?
Please advise :)February 3, 2016 at 11:16 am #4127005
I filed 26th and excepted the 26th. Just got off the phone to see when they really excepted plus asked a question about our taxes but the lady said they excepted it the 28th also. She didn’t say they were behind or anything or anything out of the ordinary wrong just still processing. So here’s to hoping us 26 filers (28th) get our money soon! Good luck!February 3, 2016 at 9:46 am #4126837
They did tell me yesterday that some education credit people are being delayed but didn’t say if I was one of them or not. Guess that could be part of my issue as well. Ugh.February 3, 2016 at 8:48 am #4126689
I just wonder if the T1098 hold up for verification is true – I think I read that here on the boards. I have had that every year for the last 3 so I don’t get it.February 3, 2016 at 8:40 am #4126677
So . . . MY BF filed 1/26 accepted according to HRB on the 26th. No update on WMR this morning. He had no EIC, but did claim education credits, refund smaller than $5k. I’ve only been checking his because I did not file until 1/30 soo his would process then mine right??? Wrong! When his WMR didn’t change with last nights/ this morning’s update I decided to look at mine. Well my WMR updated at some point DDD 2/5. I did claim EIC, refund larger than $5k. So here is to more waiting for the 26/27th filers . Uggghhh!February 3, 2016 at 8:36 am #4126670
It is frustrating because, even tho you’re filed and accepted on one date, they actually don’t get it for 2-3 days after, so that makes my “official IRS” filing date is 1/28. But even then there are people who filed after me getting updates and money. All the guy could tell me yesterday was its being processed. :/February 3, 2016 at 8:22 am #4126636
Filed 1/25. Accepted 1/26.
One bar on WMR.
I can order account but not return transcripts.
The only big change this year is that I had to file my Obamacare stuff from this past year along with it. I’ll be seriously miffed if doing what I was supposed to do in order to keep from being penalized means that my return gets held up this year.February 3, 2016 at 8:16 am #4126623
Everyone who kept preaching that there was this BIG update overnight were not telling the truth. It did not happened. It’s strange to me that there are a lot of folks who filed on the 29/30th who got ddd of 2/5….February 3, 2016 at 8:04 am #4126595
I checked and nothing, i noticie people who filed after US aré getting there refund 02/05. UghhhhhFebruary 3, 2016 at 7:40 am #4126568
Nothing to update… No return transcript, no movement on WMR. Bummer.February 3, 2016 at 7:29 am #4126555
Filed 1/26 Accepted 1/26, still have one bar, and can order account returns on old address but nothing for new address ….February 3, 2016 at 7:04 am #4126513
I was hoping for an update this morning as well, but nothing. I would feel much more relaxed about waiting as long as I knew everything was at least OKAY with my return. Here’s to an update for us 26-ers on Saturday morning.February 3, 2016 at 6:13 am #4126437
No update for me :( checked WMR and phone number… Guess the “refund schedule” I have seen floating around isn’t exactly correct. Boo.February 3, 2016 at 5:15 am #4126366
Still no update for me :(February 3, 2016 at 2:00 am #4126234
Turbo tax says 18% of us 1/26ers have there refunds.
I’m not one of those!!
I’ve also seen a few of us saying they called the irs. Some have found they actually didn’t get accepted until 1/28..
I hope that’s not the case for me or any of you..February 2, 2016 at 11:41 pm #4126127
Still nothing :( hopefully well get some info in the AM (fingers crossed)February 2, 2016 at 3:45 pm #4125645
Same here. I filed on 26, accepted same day; called IRS this a.m. was told it was accepted 1/28. Strange how some folks filed on 1/26 and got DDDs of 2/2…February 2, 2016 at 2:27 pm #4125571
I just spoke with the IRS, Mr. Ivey, I filed with turbo tax on 1/26, accepted on 1/26. He stated that it takes up to 72 hours for them to actually get it. They got mine on 1/28. So the day you “file” literally means nothing. Its the day that they actually get it.
I also asked about the American Education Credit, only some of them are being held back, not everyone who has the credit.
HE said there have been A LOT of complaints about the WMR site today. But to keep checking and after 21 days from the 1/28 date, to call back.
Hold time was maybe 1 min.
Hope this helps!!February 2, 2016 at 12:14 pm #4125381
I still have no movement, but again, not too concerned just yet. I tried ordering transcripts again this morning and to no avail. BOO. All hope is not lost, right?!February 2, 2016 at 9:50 am #4125164
I filed 01/25 accepted 1/26. No bars forever, but I was able to order a transcript yesterday, but no refund tax script yet. I just want to see something happen. I filed a week later last year, and got everything on time. I filed online through EZtaxreturn.com, have for many years w/out any problems. Hoping for this week, but if next week just the same.February 2, 2016 at 8:48 am #4125071
Its only giving me the option to order my transcript through the mail. Is their a reason for this. I prefer onlineFebruary 2, 2016 at 7:31 am #4124981
Thanks, that was actually very informative.. im not sure what my cycle is but i believe im typically a daily cycle because i almost always have gotten my return back within 5-7 days. Taking longer this year but im thinking thats due to the new security measures to try and prevent id theft. Im hopeful for friday ddd though. GL to everyoneFebruary 2, 2016 at 6:51 am #4124944
1 Bar Tax Topic 152
Still no update… Maybe tomorrow or Thursday… I’m pretty sure I am a “weekly” haven’t tried the transcript thingy because it will only make me more anxious. I was really hoping for a confirmed DDD of 2/5/2016… Still holding out…February 2, 2016 at 6:38 am #4124927
I keep trying to log onto the transcript page and its telling me there is a technical problem anyone else getting this message >>>???February 2, 2016 at 6:38 am #4124925
Still no update :( Hopefully tomorrow. Hope people start seeing changes and receiving their funds so that I could at least be a little hopeful for a Friday deposit even though I haven’t received a DDD.February 2, 2016 at 1:23 am #4124785
some info I found
SHARED FROM ANOTHER PAGE
Sara WyrickWe are the original TAX FAMILY!!
9 mins ·
Good Morning!!!! I am going to explain somethings here so everyone please read this very carefully!!
1. Transcripts will begin back processing this evening into tomorrow morning fro the daily returns.. this is cycle 02… around 6am we will start seeing people with access to both transcripts… this is a good thing.. meaning your return is finsihed processing.,,, Wednesday morning, WMR will update for a deposit day of 2/5!!! If you are a 02 cycle (daily cycle) and lost bars etc, last week,,, this is your chance to resquence and process….. if the batch is not full they may process other post hold returns.
2. Post hold returns are returns that posted but did not process yet… example… you can order account transcripts but no return transcripts… you are considered in a post hold which is also called system idle. what does this mean? This means that your return was indeed posted but has not been worked and is now sitting there waiting for your next cycle process to repost and process….Thes reason you lose your bars, tax topic, 21 day message, etc…. is because you are sitting in the post hold (idle) waiting for your next cycle… Now… today is an elongated day… meaning a day for long processing due to the deferred day Friday which is a non posting day for daily retuns and yes they have to post as many as these returns as they system allows…. so some of these returns will begin to process tonight into tomorrow morning… the system will shut down between 330 and 6am to download the return transcripts etc, so after 6am we will start seeing this updates.
3.Address Issues: Now if you can order your account transcripts with your old address then this means your return is posted but has not been worked… the new address will not update until your return has been processed and indeed posted… this is when you will be able to access transcripts with your new address and your return will be finished processing. It will only change when your return transcript has been processed and updated.
4. Resequencing: This is due to the returns posting but not being able to process… reasons for resequencing… early filing, full cycle which causes post hold, error on return, etc…. each return that is resequenced goes to the next date for that cycle to process and waits for its turn… now returns can be resequenced over and over due to amount of returns already being processed.. They do have a daily processing limit.
5. Weekly returns post on Thursday for processing on Friday… Wmr on Saturday for ddd of Wednesday… Weekly returns will not process until Friday….
6. Daily vs Weekly… Cycles 01 02 03 04 are daily cycles. 05 is the only weekly cycle!
7. The word cycle has 2 different meanings when it comes to the IRS manual. Cycle is used for days and weeks… so example 20150304 the 03 is your weekly cycle number to where 04 is your daily cycle and so on….
Now I know this is alot to read and concept….. and I know I have left tons of things out but this is were we are gonna start today…. so ya’ll work with me and we will make it throw this!!February 1, 2016 at 8:40 pm #4124547
Still nothing here for me, either. Last year, I filed on the 22nd and had my refund the 4th. Not too concerned yet, as most people who filed before I did still haven’t seen any changes. I am tempted to try my transcripts again, but in the Main, someone had said all failed transcript attempts are being logged and could possibly cause the need for verification.February 1, 2016 at 7:05 pm #4124483
Well here’s some news that may be of interest. Last year I filed on the same day – 1/26 – thru TA and I received my refund on Wednesday 2/4 ?! So if all the planets are aligned, I’m thinking this Wednesday 2/3 will be THE day!! The only changes on my return this year was the $150 energy credit for our new gas boiler (big deal – the thing cost us $8000!) and I lost my daughter as a dependent. I doubt they raise any red flags.
Pretty sure, as I stated earlier, that WMR didn’t move until AFTER I received our money. Fingers crossed!February 1, 2016 at 6:40 pm #4124465
@meechie – not really – they only update once a day (overnight) from what I’ve read here. So I usually check when I have my morning coffee ?February 1, 2016 at 6:38 pm #4124463
@TraciT I filed my taxes using Turbo Tax, (Last year I used H&R) i’m not sure if that makes a difference but it was around the same time and I got my return on 02/06/15. Do you know when the best time to check the IRS website?February 1, 2016 at 6:03 pm #4124445
Tried to order transcripts by phone and online
It says no records match not found
Tried with old and new address.
Anyone know anything about this?
By phone it didn’t even get to enter your street number.. It took social and said nah.. Bothing here for you..February 1, 2016 at 5:50 pm #4124435
@TraciT I filed through Turbo Tax but last year I filed around the same time and it came on 2/5 but I filed through H&R hopefully it doesn’t make a difference.February 1, 2016 at 3:02 pm #4124283
@meechie who did you file through? I seem to remember last year I got my refund before WMR updated. I think 2/3 or 2/5 as well.February 1, 2016 at 10:32 am #4123981
i just checked this morning still nothing only one bar on WMR, and still cant order my return transcipt. But i hope we get our money 2/3 to 2/5 because it seem everyone esle is saying that ddd.February 1, 2016 at 9:36 am #4123932
Nothing for me yet! Still just at one bar today… Got my state refund (NE) on Friday. Hoping for a DDD of 2/5 or before….February 1, 2016 at 7:47 am #4123828
Update – I still have one bar and can’t order a return transcript as of now.February 1, 2016 at 7:01 am #4123804
Still no DDD….
I guess I’m a “weekly” no update for me this morning… Maybe once they do the “big” update Wednesday I’ll have a DDD…February 1, 2016 at 4:54 am #4123765
Wmr is down…
Guess I’ll check it later..
State return set for 2/2 which it told me 2-3 days after I filed..

Anyone receive a refund date yet with an accepted date of 26? Will an offset delay my refund?January 30, 2016 at 9:09 pm #4122180
I just checked WMR
And found out I got a refund date!!!January 30, 2016 at 4:37 pm #4121993
Still only 1 bar on Wmr
I think my transcripts ended in 05 last
I have no clue if that would mean anything this year..
Are there more updates tonight? I thought there were updates every night?January 30, 2016 at 12:08 pm #4120285
I filed through TT 01/26 accepted 1 hour later, still nothing I can order my account transcript but not the return transcript. WMR is on one bar it’s been like that since 01/27, I hope I get my refund by this Friday coming up that how it was last year. How do you know if your weekly or daily?
