So how are others who filed after me getting refunds before me…..
There are a number of reasons
1. They filed their taxes at a time when transcripts were not hit with an automatic posting delay code like 570.
2. They are a daily filer
3. Processed before the prescribed outline
4.no special handling or codes like ID verify, offsets, etc.
Another thing I also wanted to share is most people post their cycle code and assume that is the best way to guesstimate a refund DDD and in some instances it may be helpful but, there is actually more than one cycle code. The other cycle code is for the master file and that is the one that we should look at first because it details the cut off dates that potentially lead to a DDD.
If you have your transcript there is an as of date that a lot of people ask about and that is actually the latest date that you should receive your refund by….so it would be the Thursday or prior to the as of date that is your expected DD.
The cycle as I see it (for many not all)……
1 week later ….. Able to order account transcript
2nd week …..Either RTN TX is available or no movement
3rd week ….No movement or Return TX available
4th week …..No movement
5th week …… DDD
6th week …… Payout DD …..you will notice that this will be 2-3 days before or after as of date
@All. I too am waiting for an update on my DDD which I presume will be on Saturday since I am a weekly filed. I’ve been following since I filed on 2/5 and have observed the various patterns of other participants and their experience with the IRS. Before I share what I believe to be the pattern, may I ask you to take this information, allow the suggested timeline to work and stop calling IRS getting yourself all frazzled. One thing is for sure tax advocates are merely the middle man to pass on information. They have no override authority, they are IRS employees. So although theyre assigned to assist tax payers they are not play makers. There are very few tax payers who get any real assistance from T.A. if you notice most of the people who say they got a T.A. and sped things up were already within the time frame for their return to be completed anyway! It’s not the people who are getting the 4464c letters who get prompt responses. You form your own opinion but this is mine.
Now from what I have observed most of the people who filed beginning the official day filing started, 1/19 through 2/6 were entered into the system with a two week delay on processing. So, you filed 1/19…..couldn’t order account TX til 2/12…..the following week 2/19 you could order return TX….(This group was divided over3-4 disbursement dates 2/27, 3/4, 3/9…..3/16 should c!ear out most of the remaining depending on the number of weeks you were delayed…anywhere from 1-3 weeks. So if you filed during this time and have not gotten any codes, letters aside fromCP05 who h has to be issued after 30 days and when you called you’re told review….those are their instructions…….. you should get a DDD. So you will notice that you were able to order your rtn TX real close to what would have been your 21st day. Depending on when your return was processed the day as well as the time determines where you fall in line. You should also take into account if you were flagged for any reason, that would cause you at least a one week delay. I’m going to post examples shortly. I just really don’t want people rushing to T.A. who in many cases can open a can of worms that you could avoid if we knew a little more about the processMarch 7, 2016 at 8:31 pm #4145798

No change on WMRMarch 2, 2016 at 9:56 am #4145071
Following this thread for a while now. Filed 2/2. With no information online, no WMR. My tax people states on their end “its still processing” called the IRS automated system states no information available. The manager called the IRS back office, given a DDD of 3/2 (no deposit today)
Is it going to be deposited random times of the day? Or end of day?
Weve gotten our state return DD last Friday. Anyone got their returns today?February 29, 2016 at 9:23 pm #4144788
Got through, only waited 7 minutes or so. Had to answer/ID Verify to a bunch of questions kind of like the way you would if you were getting your FICO score. He was able to verify that I was me and gave me the same “could be 9 weeks”…Hoping for a WMR update in the next couple of days. Maybe I’ll get lucky and get into the 3/2 deposit!!!!February 29, 2016 at 12:09 pm #4144698
Filed 2/2/2016, accepted same day etc like most. Have had no bars for a few weeks and I called every number possible and finally got through with 800-829-0582 ext 652. Gentleman was very nice. Asked me the standard security questions about my current return to further help. Told him why I was calling and was placed on hold for no more than a min or two and he came back that I needed to call the 800-830-5084 number and have W2’s and returns for the last two years for verification to finish the processing.
I should also state that I’m schedule C, file a joint return as always. Used turbo tax the last 11 years, always a joint return and nothing has changed other than we cashed out some 401k this year and had about triple the deductions we normal have since we moved my business location. So a couple red flags was to be expected. But I’ve also not received any letter, nothing on WMR to contact them but our refund amount this year is also about triple what we normally get back. Our return is probably overdosing with red flags..lol.
Will keep calling and will update my progress when something changes.February 28, 2016 at 12:07 pm #4144539
Finally Checked the WMR site and got a DDD of 3/2 thank goodness. ????????????????February 28, 2016 at 12:07 pm #4144538
Finally Checked the WMR site and got a DDD of 3/2 thank goodness. ????????????????February 27, 2016 at 10:32 am #4144376
Update. Got a DDD for 3/2February 27, 2016 at 9:02 am #4144354
I was finally able to order both transcripts, yesterday afternoon. I got a DDD this morning, for 3/2/16. Thank Goodness!February 27, 2016 at 8:32 am #4144351
So I called yesterday and could not get anyone. This morning am I check wmr and….I HAVE BARS!!! Two bars! It says it schedule for the 3/2. A whole month later! Did it really need to take a whole month? I hope y’all get your refunds a fast as possible.February 27, 2016 at 1:25 am #4144309
Hi yeah I filed o 2/2/16 and my return was accepted then processed and i received a date of my check being mailed out on 2/12/16 then on the 13th i received a notice saying to take action and got code 1121 so i called and they said they have no information for me so i called on 2/24/16 and the representative looked at my return and said that there was nothing wrong with my return that everything checked out and that it would take up to 60 days before i would here anything or receive my return this is such bullshit anyone else have a similar situation?February 26, 2016 at 2:52 pm #4144165
I was finally able to order my return transcript today about 10 minutes ago…. I’m excited because from everyone else post this seems to be a good sign which is right on time cause a lot of people were told our update would be today the 26th, and the tax lady informed me they update WMR Tuesday Thursday and Saturday so I’m hoping this dreadful wait is coming to an end soon!!!February 26, 2016 at 9:24 am #4144067
stuck on one bar until 2/19
able to order account 2/8(but it was all 0’s)
able to order return 2/19 (still haven’t received)
bars disappeared 2/19, still have tt 152 your refund is still being processed”
same as of this am 2/26 (this was supposed to be my ddd)
it better be 3/4 or earlier.
This is getting a little ridiculous.February 25, 2016 at 8:17 pm #4143969
Filed 2/2 with turbo tax and was approved. Only started checking wmr on 2/23. Wmr is no bars and says being processed.
I was hoping just like last year it would only take 23 days at lest. It look like that not the chase this year. Going to call in the morning.
Really needs this money for new tires.February 25, 2016 at 9:53 am #4143819
Lost bar said it was still processing and a date will be available soon
I called the IRS on the 23th and the only thing they told me was as of the 6th they are still processing abd and it can take up to 8 weeks from that date to receive refund and to keep on checking the WMR site.
I checked it today and a new message stating “we have received your refund and it is been processed.”
Any one have good news yet??? And they did not mention health care when I called so hopefully it’s just 21 days from the 6th and I get an update this SaturdayFebruary 24, 2016 at 7:27 pm #4143723
Just got informed today our taxes are being held beacuse of health insurance paperwork. Got it all done and faxed in. Call them to see if they recieved it they say we will have to wait 2 weeks for there system to update before they can see it. Has anyone else had this problem .if so have u heard anythingFebruary 24, 2016 at 2:26 pm #4143671
Final update. I was successful in getting through to the IRS it was confirmed that the delay was due to proof of health insurance. They mailed a letter on the 16th of Feb. I have to send in the tax forms that state I have/had insurance within the year. Here’s the catch. You probably hadn’t received the forms before submitting your taxes because it’s not a requirement. The paragraph below is from IRS.gov
Some taxpayers may not receive a Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C by the time they are ready to file their 2015 tax return. While the information on these forms may assist in preparing a return, they are not required. Like last year, taxpayers can prepare and file their returns using other information about their health insurance. You should not attach any of these forms to your tax return. Similar to “receipts” you claim them on your taxes but then you keep them in your files in case you are audited.February 24, 2016 at 11:28 am #4143648
I verified identity on Monday and on my 21 day which was Tuesday I verified again, they did ask me where I worked and I switch jobs, but I’ve also been covered with health insurance so it does make sense. However they didn’t tell me the hold up was due to insurance, but verifying my identity. I had a address change as well. I was told 9 weeks for processing after verification was completeFebruary 24, 2016 at 11:24 am #4143646
I think I have an answer for the delay in the returns. I spoke with someone who works for H&R Block. They stated that if you changed jobs or was unemployed for any period the IRS is checking your healthcare coverage. If you haven’t been covered you will be taxed therefore causing the tax account to be flagged. I am in that situation my taxes were accepted on 1/28 and still under review. I changed jobs and was without health insurance for a brief period of time I suppose that makes sense. And btw… I cannot get through to the IRS to have any questions answered. If someone has gotten through, can you tell me what number and extensions you used?February 23, 2016 at 11:17 pm #4143539
Sarah, You are not alone. I am still waiting as well. I did get through to them this morning, and the lady I spoke to said that my refund was tagged for further review. She verified all of my information and told me that it could be 6 more weeks before I get my refund, :(February 23, 2016 at 10:17 pm #4143526
Well its almost DDD time !!! **crosses fingers**
Been waiting for this all month!
Really hoping I get mine tonight after midnight. Seems pretty quiet in here lately so pretty sure most on my date have gotten their did already. :) hope to see mine tonight !!!
The waiting game continues!February 23, 2016 at 11:41 am #4143342
Filed on 2/2 my return was never approved at all and has stayed in the return processing stage. I lost my bars yesterday, I’ll be heading to the irs tomorrow if nothing changes, see what info I can be given.February 23, 2016 at 8:48 am #4143265
sill no bars…able to order transcript 2/19. Sigh what is the hold up? I’m not in the mood to call nor do I have the time.February 23, 2016 at 8:02 am #4143255
I have been waiting and faithfully checking WMR daily. Finally got a letter in the mail yesterday saying that I needed to verify my identity! I did it online yesterday so I am hoping that this week or next week will be my DDD.February 23, 2016 at 4:39 am #4143241
I filed on 2/2 I was accepted on 2/2 and still no ddd or I can’t get my return transcript an today make my 21st dayFebruary 22, 2016 at 9:56 pm #4143191
Filed 2/1, called today after being able to order return transcripts 2/19 night but no ddd over the weekend. Found out I had to ID verify over the phone with them. This info was given because I called told them I wanted to check make sure I didn’t get any letter sent to me. Low and behold I was one that needed to verify my identity. Looks like ANY change in prior returns will cause for a lot of people having to ID verify this year. I passed that and she told me will notify the other dept to take the “hold” off of my return and finish processing. 9 weeks total wait but think it is done processing just had to verify for release. Here’s to praying for a ddd this or next week.. smhFebruary 22, 2016 at 3:51 am #4143035
I filed 2/1/2016 was accepted the same day, HR blocked told me my refund will be on 2/22/2016 When I checked the WMR site on Friday 2/19/2016 my bars were gone, however I was able to order my transcripts a few minutes ago, & the Irs sends me a filing pin every year. SO IM NOT UNDERSTANDING THE DELAY….I NEED TO MOVE GIVE ME MY MONEYFebruary 21, 2016 at 5:38 pm #4142946
File accepted 02/02/16
I’m in the same situation! Hopefully this means we are being processed and being issued an DDD soon!!February 21, 2016 at 11:53 am #4142883
ordered return trans on 2/20
+2/20 bars dissapeared tt 152.
Hoping for a ddd of 2/23 or soonerFebruary 20, 2016 at 1:48 pm #4142694
Lost the one bar I had from the very beginning.
Was finally able to order both account and return transcripts on 02-19-16
WMR updated at around 3:45 am with my DDD of 02-24-16
( I also was able to find out that if you owe any kind of an offset, even if it’s $60.), you’ll be able to hear through the offset hotline when yir DDD is, because they tell you how much they are taking from you’re refund & on what date. In my case they said they’d be taking $43.57 for an offset (towards student loan) on 02-24-16
(Which is my DDD).
I’m so happy and relieved to finally have a DDD after anxiously waiting so long.
Good luck to everyone !!!February 20, 2016 at 12:53 pm #4142682
Hello everyone, this is for everyone who filed 2/1 2/2 2/3 2/4 and 2/5
My return was accepted 2/2, this morning I received a message stating “your tax return is still being processed, will update will a date is available”. So I went ahead and verify my identity, I have not received a letter in the mail and If I did honestly it went to my moms address and she no loner lives there. Well I verify what I put on my 2015 return and the system said ” unable to verify identity online” and to call them. Ughhh, idk what is going onFebruary 20, 2016 at 4:41 am #4142454
Well, it finally happened to me…..as of this morning, I have lost the bars and WMR says my return is still being processed and a refund date will be provided when it is available :-/. Can’t order return transcript, but have read whether you can order them or no realize doesn’t have an impact on your refund status……
Ill bet when 21 days rolls around and all of us who filed on 2-2 are calling them asked questions they’ll wish they had moved a little faster……February 20, 2016 at 1:11 am #4142419
able to order return transcripts tonight!
my bars disappeared on wmr but i’m going to take this as a good signFebruary 19, 2016 at 4:58 pm #4142348
I filed 2/1 received 2/2 lost bar graph on the 4th day and it says it’s still being processed as well, I have read everyone’s post and it has given me some hope why does it take sooooo long!! Last year I got my return at the end of April due to the Identity verification smh Hopefully we All get our post dates tomorrow (crosses fingers)February 19, 2016 at 8:57 am #4142065
I was just able to order my return & account transcripts! I heard this is a good sign! I wonder how much longerFebruary 19, 2016 at 8:36 am #4142050
And for all the people who had to verify ID, why not work with tax prep software companies to verify via a soft credit pull at the front gates. Just like the irs does when you verify. A few questions related to your credit file or address history and you can proceed to prepare your taxes. When the IRS received returns from the co-operating companies they will have already been verified and can go right to processing without a hold and 30 days to get a letter.February 19, 2016 at 8:30 am #4142044
Well at least your not alone, I have tt152, still have bars, can order account but not return transcript. It’s the 19th, very frustrating. They need a complete overhaul. It’s not the 1980’s anymore where waiting for mail was normal… they need to provide better status details on wmr. Do you think a big corporation would build such a failure? No! How do they think that making it so intensely frustrating to work with them will help them to collect more taxes? Like I said, IRS NEEDS A FULL OVERHAUL. TREAT IT LIKE A BUSINESS, BUILD IT AROUND STRONG CUSTOMER SERVICE.February 19, 2016 at 8:20 am #4142042
Filed 2/2/16, received 2/3/16, still 1st bar, can’t get transcript its now the 19th… WTH… I hope its here by the 23rd…February 19, 2016 at 7:54 am #4142033
Still nothing! No transcripts, NOTHING! My roommate filed on the 10th. Ordered his transcript this morning! What the heck!?February 19, 2016 at 7:28 am #4142022
I was able to order my return transcript as of 7:03am. Hopefully it’s a good signFebruary 19, 2016 at 1:02 am #4141955
tired of waiting
1 bar on wmr since 2/4
been trying to order transcript from new address for over a week now and could only order acct transcript from old address. Tried again at 12 midnight and could finally get through with my new address but still cant order return transcript yet. Hoping for an update tomorrow or Saturday! this has been the longest I’ve ever waited in the past 3 years I’ve filed my taxes.
Come on now IRS lets get this show on the road! I NEED MY MONEYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!February 18, 2016 at 10:04 pm #4141919
I also was accepted on 2-2 and no updates as of yet, it’s just not fair that people filing after me have already received their refund. I have never had this problem before but atleast I see its an ongoing issue with alot of people.February 18, 2016 at 4:21 pm #4141811
@Sarah – I’m in the same boat as you. Filed 1/29, accepted 2/2, and bars disappeared a few days after and nothing but 152 since. No return transcript. IRS lady, though nice, had no info but “call after 21 days.” I did ask if I needed to verify my ID or if I’m under review, she said “No.” I guess we just wait for 21 days.February 18, 2016 at 3:59 pm #4141798
02-2-16 filed and accepted following day.
I lost my bar, (only had 1) , ever since about the third or fourth day of them accepting. For a bit, I thought I had lost the bar graph from checking too often, but then after two weeks passed and still not even a bar graph shows, I figured it was something to do with their system it some kind if computer issues.
I tried calling IRS the lady just asked what day I file . When I told her she told me it hasn’t been 21 days yet and to wait until it has been at least 21 days to call back. She didn’t give me any kind of additional information at all. Basically I’ve kind of given up in even going on where’s my refund to check for any updates. Especially since I see lots of people talk about receiving their refunds via Direct deposit and the webpage still not updated, lol.
I’ve set up a text alert for my bank…. So hoping that way I don’t have to stress the wmr cause ilk just get a notification of when I get a deposit!
Happy for everyone who has already received their mone . But I’m still stressing ! I really need that money to move and to fix so many problems. Sigh.. Let’s hope we get updates by next week.
