    Well for better or worse I can confirm the ssa.gov truck works… In 2016 the only year I had had a delay(had to show proof of kids etc), ssa.gov didn’t update until everything was cleared… This year ssa.gov updated my 2017 earning already… So fingers crossed…

    That ssa site only helps if you’re self employed.

    If I am reading correctly, filers that are affected by PATH will find out by Thursday-Saturday?

    @Geishadoll_39 I believe the theory is that the irs won’t report income to ssa that isn’t approved. Therefore if you see your income on ssa.gov for 2017 then your return has processed and is complete. Check history to see if hats the year it’s recorded. Mine still hasn’t recorded but I was told that mine is complete by the tax advocate rep and I’m only waiting for path. My transcripts completed last Wednesday

    What is the thing about ssa? I checked my info on that site and I could see my income…I don’t know…I was reading some posts and it seems like that’s what people are talking about now….could you please give me some info?

    This happened to me last year. I faxed the info in and it only delayed my return by one week. Just make sure to follow the instructions exactly.

    #4215546 Reply


    Thanks for clearing that up RB. Yeah PATH affects EIC or ACTC but not CTC that’s why none of us have the code 846 yet. I sure was stalking my transcript for it though hoping lol.

    #4215516 Reply


    Yes your correct momjess. I didn’t put as much thought into that post as I should have. I was more or less trying to say I didn’t have eic and that I got the 846 code because I know some people asked for posts if people started to see that code.

    #4215506 Reply


    I’m going to assume RB has CTC not ACTC

    #4215463 Reply


    I filed 2/2 and accepted 2/2. I have ACTC but not eic, filed HOH with 3 dependants. My transcripts updated yesterday with a 846 code and the date 2/16/18. My cycle code is 20180702.

    I think the earliest wmr mat update for us is Thursday. But definitely Saturday as long as there’s no problem with your return.

    That is what happened to me last year. I ended up calling before the letter was received by me, because I never got the PATH msg, just the “your return has been received and is still being processed…”. Thankfully I was able to get the info I needed from the person I spoke with and a fax number to the corrections department. I gathered and faxed the form needed to the number she gave and that helped speed things along. Still did not see my refund until March 18th I believe it was, but still not the 6-8 weeks they said it would be either.

    Do you have code 766 on your transcript too?

    Just checked mine and no 846 code yet. Filed 1/26, cycle 20180503 EITC and ACTC.

    #4215386 Reply


    We have all seen that IRS memo and message. We are just hear to see and converse with our peers and see what people are getting and seeing.

    #4215368 Reply


    Just a little FYI:

    Taxpayers who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit may experience a refund hold. According to the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, the IRS cannot issue these refunds before mid-February. The IRS expects the earliest EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or debit cards starting February 27, 2018, if these taxpayers chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax return.

    Where’s My Refund? ‎on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app will be updated February 17 for the vast majority of early filers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. These taxpayers will not see a refund date on Where’s My Refund? or through their software packages until then. The IRS, tax preparers and tax software will not have additional information on refund dates, so Where’s My Refund? remains the best way to check the status of a refund. Where’s My Refund? is only updated once daily, usually overnight, so checking it more often will not produce new or different results.

    I unfortunately know all about that dreaded form 8962.
    It happened to me 2016 tax year.
    Insurance credits and crap.
    I ended up needing a tax advocate and my state attorney general’s office assistance. I didn’t receive my refund until June 15 2016 I had filed 1/20 that year. Litteraly the day after the attorney general’s office contacted IRS my funds were released.
    I’m not trying to freak you out for me it was really bad experience because it caused my file to be resequenced for a very long time. The delay all came down to throwing mine to the back because of that form!
    I advise you to get a tax advocate when you are able to so that once you send in completed form you can hurry the process some.
    I wish you the best of luck and I hope your situation turns out better and sooner than mine did!

    I filed with Tax Slayer 1/23, accepted 1/24 and only movement was my bars disappearing over the weekend.

    Got home from work yesterday with a letter from the IRS awaiting me. They want more proof of my insurance. They want Tax Form 8962 filled out and mailed back. I’ve been using TS for the last 20 years or so and I’ve never had an issue. I guess this was just my year to be flagged. Letter states it will take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks to get my refund from the date they receive the form back from me. No return for me until around April.

    Good luck to everyone. Hope you have a better experience this year than I have had.

    #4215261 Reply


    I filed 1/16, accepted 1/22 and have been stuck on Path since early February when I first checked.

    There’s literally no point in this message except to say hey hey hey, we’re closer than we were a week ago. I tried to mentally prepare myself this year to not see any $$$ until March and I’ve been doing fairly good but these last few days I can feel the itch. Hopefully some things start rolling by next week. Either way, we’re getting there!

    #4215253 Reply


    I filed 2/2 and accepted 2/2. I have the ACTC, HOH, 3 kids, no eic. My transcripts updated yesterday with a code 846, cycle code 20180702 and by my code 846 I show a date of Feb 16, 2018.

    #4215251 Reply


    Last year people with processing dates of the 13th, 20th, and 27th all had DDD of 02/22 and 02/23.

    My processing date last year 02-20-2017 with a ddd of 02-23-2017. I had fees taken out and it was deposited on my NetSpend at 3 pm on 02-22-2017. My cycle code last year was 20170505

    This year I have a processing date of 02-12-2017. A cycle code of 20180405 and I paid fees upfront.

    I check my transcript daily so if it changes I’ll post here and hope any else who changes does the same.

    #4215240 Reply


    I hope they roll out refunds soon, but I would highly doubt that any of us will see $$$ in our accounts on the 15th unless there is code 846 on the transcripts with a DDD already, which I have not seen anyone with EIC/ACTC have yet. I hope when someone has code 846 on their transcripts that they will post about it!
    Last year, my processing date was 2/27. The date by code 846 (refund issued) was 2/23, and I received my funds on 2/23. Some DDD’s were before the processing date last year, some were after. I read that for some, WMR updated on the 16th & 17th with a DDD, mine updated on the 18th, and some never updated at all before receiving their DD in their accounts. Last year my account transcript updated the day before WMR, so I suspect transcripts for weekly people may update this Friday with a DDD for the following week. Fingers crossed!!

    @AmberCC14 I’m hoping they check after i made error in mind as well. They can adjust and send letter I’m fine with that. Just hoping they don’t hold refund looking for info.

    many of us early filers are so close, and yet some are getting id verify letters as well, I really don’t see things can change much when we are this close.

    #4214987 Reply


    @Sarah- I’m not familiar with the whole processing date… How did you find out what yours was and also does your WMR have any bars? Im still showing path act note

    #4214982 Reply


    Lori I do. Last year my processing date was 2/20 my DDD was 2/23, got it 2/22 at 11pm. I think the processing date is a good indicator to when a DDD will be. My experience it’s only a couple days. My processing date this year 2/12, add 3 days 2/15, the day IRS released refunds.

    #4214959 Reply


    @AmberCC14 Hopefully it wasnt a large amount, either way the Alphabet Boys will catch the error, make the adjustment and send you a notice. The thing is you dont know when its coming, it could be this year next year or 2 years from now. You’ll owe the additional tax on the unreported amount plus whatever late fees and interest they decide to tack on to it. Also, if there is a big diff between the numbers you could possibly wind up owing your state some more bread too.

    Remember shit rolls down hill…Send in a 1040X with the correct numbers.

    @jimbo — Thank you!

    Fill out the amended form as soon as you get the money.

    #4214939 Reply


    I have a question. I have already filed my return on 1/26 and it was accepted same day. A few days later, I got the PATH message which is still there as of today.

    My question is: Does IRS immediately compare your w2 and other source of income forms to your return once they’ve received it and processing has started?

    I’ve been told by multiple people and have read multiple forums/articles/web sites that IRS does NOT compare w2’s and other sources of income until AFTER refund has been sent; like after tax season because of how extremely busy they are and that they are required to send refunds out as quickly as possible (in certain cases, after PATH is lifted)

    The reason I’m asking is because I screwed up on my wages. For example I put $12000 instead of $13000 (that’s not the actual amount, it’s just an example) because I filed my taxes online via iPhone. I claimed Head of Household as well as both EIC/ACTC credits. I’m also anticipating a refund.

    Do I need to contact them or will they contact me to resolve this? Or.. will they approve it and catch it later? Do I need to file an amended form? If so, do I file the form now or afterwards?

    I have been filing the same way for 8 years — same name, same address, same credits, same employer, same everything. I’ve never screwed up like this before and I’m freaking out!

    I appreciate any info/advice given! Thank you!!

    • Where’s My Refund? on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app remains the best way to check the status of a refund. Where’s My Refund? will be updated with projected deposit dates for most early EITC and ACTC refund filers on February 17. These taxpayers will not see a refund date on Where’s My Refund? ‎or through their software packages until then. The IRS, tax preparers and tax software will not have additional information on refund dates, so these taxpayers should not contact or call them about refunds before the end of February.

    @ anyone reading. Will WMR update Wednesday for us eitc & actc filers,or Saturday only?

    #4214862 Reply


    @dgk it could be that one of them got resequenced and can also mean they just haven’t got to it or it could’ve been randomly selected for review

    #4214846 Reply


    Hey everyone! I’ve just been lurking here over the last week or so. But now I have a question. I helped 2 of my friends file their taxes on 2/7 both were accepted the same day just about 12 hours apart. Both have eic & actc so they were expecting the path message until at least the 15th. My concern is that only one of them has updated to the path message, the other is sitting on one bar still with tt 152. Does anyone else have the same issue? They’re just worried because it hasn’t updated yet & it updated really quickly for them last year.

    #4214826 Reply


    Filed; 02/03
    Accepted: 02/03
    PATH message update 02/10

    If I go by what happened last year, I filed on 02/02, accepted the same date. On WMR, I went to 2 bars and nothing else. TurboTax STILL has never updated that I received my refund even though I did on 02/22. I received state refund on 02/13.

    Last year was the first year that I didn’t get the DD date until AFTER we already had our refund in the bank. When it went to 2 bars, it was just a watching and waiting game. I had no idea when it was going in there. Well like I said I found out when I was getting the refund AFTER we had already got it.

    We aren’t in a rush this year well not too much of a rush. Our bills are taken care of until March, I am just wanting to get my CC paid off because I am working on my credit score. Other than that, when I get anymore information I will post it just like I did last year.

    If by some chance, it gets crazy or in the strange case we get something early I will let everyone know.
    Yes, we got EITC.My kids are grown and out of the home so I don’t get the big whopping tax checks anymore. However I am thankful and appreciative of what we do get back from the IRS. It allows us to get a few things we need and do a few things we need to get done, and Momma is getting her a new phone this time around. Nexus 6, but its new to me.

    I ramble, sorry LOL. Have a good week guys and don’t stress too hard.
