    I think I have a new one for the 8962/1095-A files.

    I purchased my 2015 health insurance through the exchange in my state. However, I did not take APTC ahead of time and paid the full premium each month. When I received my 1095-A, the information for the SLSCP was incorrect. According to the instructions for 8962 and the letter that came with my 1095-A, not taking the APTC ahead of time can result in the SLSCP being incorrect. If that’s the case, the instructions say to use a tool available on the exchanges website (my state’s in this case) to calculate the correct SLSCP for use in filling out form 8962 and for 1095-A. On page 3 of the instructions for form 8962, it says the following:

    ” If no APTC was paid for your coverage, Form 1095-A, Part III, column B, may be wrong or blank or may report your applicable SLCSP premium as -0-. If you had a change in circumstances during 2015 that you did not report to the Marketplace, the SLCSP premium reported in Part III, column B, may be wrong. In either case you must determine your correct applicable SLCSP premium. You do not have to request a corrected Form 1095-A from the Marketplace. See Missing or incorrect SLCSP premium on Form 1095-A , later.”

    The “do not” in the “you do not have to request a corrected Form 1095-A” is even in bolded.

    No problem. I wen to the website for my state’s marketplace, typed my information into the tool. A number came back with this line below it. “You will enter these amounts in Part III, Column B on Form 1095-A and part 2, Column B on Form 8962.”

    Normally, I would file on paper, but I decided to file electronically with TurboTax this year since I’m unemployed at the moment (but will hopefully have a new job soon). In the meanwhile, things are a little tight, and I was hoping to have my refund back sooner rather than later since I actually needed it this year.

    I used the SLCSP value from the tool on my state’s marketplace website to complete the calculations. Submitted on 2-1 and also received an email from TurboTax that day that it had been accepted.

    I didn’t check WMR until about 12 days later. I had one bar and tax topic 152. It stayed that way 2-20, when the bar disappeared and the dreaded “still processing” was there. I was concerned, but was told that some of the TurboTax returns were not accepted when TT said and decided to give it a few more days. I called on 2-29 when there still hadn’t been a change. The agent I spoke with told me that the return was in the error department with no evidence of a letter being sent out. She didn’t know for sure what the error was, but wondered if it might be because I recently moved. She said there was no evidence of a letter going out, so she’d email the errors department about it and updated my address. She then went on to give me a whole bunch of reasons that it might or might not be that added up to a non-answer and to call back in 30 days if nothing had happened. (I was also told that if I hadn’t called, the letter probably wouldn’t have been sent because I’d moved.) In a normal year, it would be no big deal to wait it out, but not this year. I told someone about what was going on and they recommended a tax advocate. I called the local office, and they were very nice. I faxed in my 911 Form, proof of hardship, and a copy of my return. I spoke to my TA yesterday who told me a letter had finally been sent and to get in contact with her when it arrived. If she hadn’t heard from me by 3-21, she would call me back.

    The letter arrived in the mail today, and the problem turned out to be that the SLCSP value didn’t match what was reported on my 1095-A. Well, of course it didn’t because the original 1095-A, but your directions explicitly stated not to request a corrected 1095-A for that and to just use the tool on the website to calculate the correct value to use for filling out the tax return and forms.

    After the letter arrived, I called my TA again, then faxed her the letter that came, the original 1095-A and the letter that came with it with the instructions on what to do if the SLCSP value was incorrect, the pages from the instructions for 8962 reiterating the same thing, a print out of a screenshot that I took when I used the tool on my state’s exchange to calculate the SLCSP, and fresh copies of 8962 and page 2 of my tax return (they said to send new ones if necessary, which they aren’t because nothing changed, but I sent them to the TA anyway). The letter did not say that I had to amend and said a 6-8 week time frame after they receive the documents, but I’m hoping that having the TA involved will cut that down.

    In my googling since this started, I hadn’t seen anyone else with this exact issue. I wanted to share in case it helps anyone else. Keep your fingers crossed that this is all swiftly resolved.



    Woke up with a ddd
    3/23 woo hoo



    Was able to order return transcript 3/10, still no update on war,
    Filed 2/1
    Accepted 2/1
    Got letter about 1095 a 24th
    Faxed in paperwork 2/24
    Ordered return trans 3/11
    Still waiting, anyone else that has had update on wmr?



    Hi guys update
    I was able to order return transcript today

    File 2/1
    Accepted 2/1
    Wmr accepted tax topic 152 until 2/16 lost bars and topic
    Received letter on 26 about health care 2/26
    Faxed everything on 2/26
    Wmr still no bars but topic came I believe on the 3/7
    Finally today I can order both account and return transcripts 3/11

    Wmr still the same no bars still processing 3/11

    Hopefully being able to order these, means a dd soon



    Woke up this morning to a pending DD for tomorrow morning. Thank You God!



    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.

    Weekly filers
    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 process



    Filed on 2/1
    Verified on 2/19
    Received return transcript with cycle date 20160805.
    Called today after no update and was told it was closed out 2/19. Haven’t seen a DDD yet.
    Am i done processing? Will I see a DDD soon?



    Yesterday I was able to order my return transcripts using my new address for the first time, so I’m praying this isn’t some cruel cosmic mix-up. Best of luck to all you 2/1 Filers still waiting for an update. You’ll get your refunds very soon.



    Well I filed on 2/1 had to id verify but did it and now have a DDD on3/9



    Still no update ugh!!!!!!Come on IRS!!! Been waiting since 2/1 no letters and I have done all they asked me to over phone and in person!



    After an interminable wait and constant worry, my wife woke me up this morning by shoving her phone in my face: WMR DDD of 3/9/2016! Thank God!



    Finally a little update WMR updated the message saying “We have received your tax return and it is being processed” from the “your tax return is still being processed” message hopefully it comes in with a week or so I have school I have to pay for this month and the 9 weeks was not going to work for me!

    I verified my identity last Tuesday 2/23
    Hope you all get some sort of update this week!!



    i have been able to order my transcripts twice now and WMR has never changed from the 1121 review message. Anyone else seen this?


    Samantha V

    Just called the IRS since I was received on 2/1 and they just told me the reason I am seeing no bars but a TT152 on my WMR is because I am being manually reviewed.. I guess I will receive my letter in 2 weeks and then they said processing could take an extra 45 days from there on out.. yay.. I would highly suggest calling if you still have a tax topic but no bars and are “still processing”.



    And still no change for me. No bars, no updates of any kind, still unable to order return transcripts at my new address. I spoke to a lady on Thursday, asking whether IDVerify had cleared, and she said it had and that processing had begun. Though I want to believe that she means it’ll be here soon, I’ve choked down a gigantic slab of salt to go with everything IRS has told me this year.



    Still no change for me! Yo are not alone if you didn’t have a change!



    Saturday i had a date of Wed 3/2. scared to check it again smh

    IRS so inconsistent this year



    Called today just to see why i was in review…No letters no id verification. Got a processing date. of 4/1/16… She said i will have my money 2nd week of April. So the wait continues!



    So I’m still waiting I verified my identity on 2/24
    Originally filed 2/1
    Accepted same day
    Got letter 2/22
    Verified 2/24
    Still no updates on WMR still has same generic message “refund still processing”
    Calling now to see why it’s not updated yet I personally think I should Atleast have maybe my bars back saying it was accepted or something



    I got the letter today,I can fax form 1095a new 1040 and 8962 form,I still need wait, but I feel much better



    Filed 2/1
    Supposedly accepted 2/3
    Generic message the last three weeks had to verify, did that this past Monday 22nd I think. Message changed a day or two later to “we received your return and its being processed” Was able to order trannys with my new address when I tried last night. Woke up this morning with a DDD FINALLY FOR 3/2!!!! This crazy journey will be over with on the 2nd! Best of wishes for all other 2/1 filers still waiting.



    @impatientlywaiting and @drea Im with you guys File on 2/1 accepted on 2/1 verified on 2/24 so i hope we are in the next group… this sucks……
    lmk something if you get a ddd pls….



    Hi guys update

    File 2/1
    Accepted 2/1
    1 bar tt152 until 2/16 they disappeared
    Called on 2/22 they said i missed 1095a to wait for a letter mailed on 2/16
    Yesterday i got the letter. It asks to fax or mail form 1095a a new 1040 form i believe form 8362(dont quote on the number) i did last night

    Now waiting again



    You don’t think they’re making updates tonight?

    I wasn’t accepted until 2/3 so I should be the next batch after you. Hopefully (going to try to remain positive)



    Oh no omg. I just knew this was gonna be our week. We’re the last of the few left smh



    Still being processed :( expect a change tonight or I guess I am fucked!



    Yayyyyy I finally got my DDD

    @drea where you at??!!!

    Filed and accepted 2/1
    Lost bars 2/19
    Verified 2/24
    Got my DDD today 2/27
    DDD 3/2

    Let’s see what happens now




    Ok so I ordered my returns got them today with a cycle code of 20160705…which if I read correctly is supposed to be Feb 25th, 2016. That kind of makes me a little worried but I checked my last years return and it took 19 business days to get my return. According to the irs rep I spoke to, I was accepted on 2/3 which would put my 19 business days at 3/2….if I don’t get my ddd my 3/4 I will officially be worried but I am just not going to freak myself out about this anymore…what can I do but remain positive and hope I am not the 1% getting audited..hopefully my bars come back this weekend!

    What about you guys?!? The tread has kind of died down which makes me think a lot of you are already rolling in the dough. Sighhhhhhhh.

    Good luck to us still processing!!!!!!!!!



    Florida – Filed 2/1 accepted 2/2 had one bar. After 2/5 bars fell off with amount shown and code tt152. I was able to order a return transcript on 2/24 and was sure to See a change the next morning but I didn’t. So, I called IRS yesterday 2/25 and they told me that I would receive a letter in the mail about missing information. Not sure what? I checked WMR this morning “just cause” and still no bars with TT152 However, just a few minutes ago I received my deposit on my netspend card minus 555 dollars. I was sure I didn’t have anything coming to me after calling. Now, I’m waiting to see why they took money. However, the biggest wait is over. Thank God I have property taxes to pay.



    Hope you all get your money soon !!!!



    Filed 2/1
    Accepted 2/10
    Bars lost 2/19
    Call and had to verify if so I did same day 2/23 21 days
    No bars same generic message all day Load posted early through rushcard outta no where tried to check wmr just to see if it updated but excessive attempts but idc I got my money lol 2/26 4:28 pm



    I have had the 1121 message with ext code 362 at the bottom of the message on WMR since 2/13/2016. I was accepted . approved, and was supposed to have a DDD of 2/10/16 then on that Saturday it all went downhill. I have called multiple times and was told different things except this week when I called I was told it was for ID verification . Went over this on the website and phone and on the phone was told the process couldn’t be completed I needed to see someone face to face. Went and did that yesterday. No change yet was still told to wait 60 days and there was a letter coming but the IRS hasn’t mailed it yet and there was no date on the letter as far as to what date it would be mailed. I did have one digit wrong on my address for my house # and I have turned in the correction form and it was corrected online as well by the rep. I ordered my transcripts back on 2/16/16 and I have not received them yet. I am at a stand still ! I hate this!




    I’m right here with you. Tomorrow will be our update..i can feel it lol ( i been feeling it every wknd and still nothing!)

    I verified Tues so hopefully though



    still waiting on the letter that tells me to fax form 8962 for the 1095a,only had that for 3 months



    @kenneth thanks your situation is similar to mine…my bars disappeared on 2/19 so I guess my bars should be back next week…or I’m getting audited sigh. Happy to see I’m not alone. Keep your head up guys!



    Filed 2-9
    accepted 2-9
    Bar disappeared 2-15
    Been able to order return transcript 2-25
    bar reappear 2-26 with approved DDD 3-1
    I’m praying for everybody, I really hope they have new update tomorrow morning.




    When did you file? When were you accepted? I tell you this has been ridiculous! My DDD was supposed to be today at the latest! But I am really expecting one of 3/4.



    Argh still no letter from IRS. Gosh I just need my money, stupid healthcare I only had for 3 months. I didn’t even use. I dont understand cause on my form it said they also sent IRS copies of the 1095a form can’t they just look it up I mean they know I had it so it would be just that simple..but hopefully today I get that letter.



    my bar is reappear to approved and DDD is 3-1,
    Best luck to you, man, this tax season is a longest one for me that I ever experienced. However, I can have good sleep and huge relieve in my mind.
    Warm regards,



    Any changes?!?!?! Still processing for me tt said my ddd would be today….


    Mizz Samantha

    @kira super happy for you someone better be taking you to dinner, you ready. . . promotion! (in my spongebob voice) Drea happy birthday! mine was the 14th and i didn’t have mine in time for bday fun either . . . :(



    Thank you!!! You all don’t know how happy I am



    Congratulations @kira !!!!



    Well i just talked to irs…they said an error occurred while processing my return. it will be 6 to 8 weeks before i get it. Filed 2/1. Not mad at all, though. Because I just got promoted to operations manager at United healthcare TODAY, The biggest blessing of my life! So after this year, I won’t be getting anything back ever… lol; but I can expect to pay a lot back, though.



    My state refund hit this morning…I now believe the irs is just way behind. If I got my state federal has got to be on the way….patiently waiting.



    Well, I just got off the phone with IRS. I filed 2/1 accepted 2/2 no bars after 2/5 with TT 152 and amount shown. IRS tells me I will be receiving a letter dated for March 7th. Wow!!!!



    Thank you so much!
    You think I can fax to them anytime or I need wait when I receive the letter?

    Bars went away: 02/19/16

    I’m still waiting on this letter that tells me to fax in Form 8962 for the 1095-A, they claim they sent it last week.



    @jenny fax number is 8552045020 for form 8962



    Filed 2/1
    Accepted 2/1
    Called its 2/23 because bars disappeared the 19th, no other activity.
    Called again today and and was told I was sent a letter 12 c or t, not sure. I had to file form 8962 with 1095 a for my 24 days of coverage last year, and my second page of 1040. Now apparently I can check the status of my return in 6 weeks. Has anyone else had to do this, and have you gotten any news yet.



    I called them yesterday, I didn’t get my money b/c I didn’t file 1095a,they mailed a letter to me on Feb16,there is fax number on the letter, I need fax them 8962 ,I’m still waiting for the letter, they said allow 7 to 10 days to receive it:(



    where are y’all seeing the options to choose which transcript to order? it doesn’t give me a option. just takes me to a page to Order Transcript then it tells me my information is wrong

    Even my last address not popping up from 2014 taxes



    I’m not checking again until Sat morning. Isn’t that when the ‘Big Updates are? Wed and Sat?



    Yesterday, I called to verify that IDVerify actually, uh, verified my ID
    Spoke to a Mrs Brown (again, a super-sweet lady who wasn’t terribly helpful) who told me that IDVerify won’t update immediately and to give it a couple days
    Mrs Brown informed me that my return was pulled 2/8 for review (I assume to verify? who knows) and to give THAT a couple days also
    No updates to WMR as of 9:30 AM 2/24



    Filed 2/1
    accepted 2/2
    ordered return transcripts 2/19
    since 2/19 no bars “your refund is still being processed”

    Called IRS 2/24 since a lot of you were correlating no bars to id verify was told that my acceptance date was actually 2/3 and that it is being held for ed credit verification and to allow 30 days :(



    Filed 2/1
    Accepted same day
    Lost bars 2/19
    Called irs 2/23 to ID verify
    Today no change.

    Hopefully Sat I’ll have a date
    That’s the next Big Update



    @drea Happy Belated Birthday! No new news for me. Still no bars, tt152, and amount visible. I waited patiently. I will be calling IRS today. I hate calling IRS. It’s always an experience. Woe is me!!



    Anyone who has no bars for more than 2 days I highly recommend calling the identity verification # 1 (800) 830-5084 because I’m 99.9% sure you have to . Note if your 21 days isn’t up they might tell you don’t have to .. But when it does become 21 days and no cash there will either be a letter stating you have to verify your identity or you’ll call and they’ll then tell you that you have to verify. I know sucks that they may know there is action needed to be taken and they won’t say a word but yeah I found out the hard way after days of calling good thing is I heard after you verify they’ll say it’ll take 9 weeks but almost everyone received in 1-2 weeks and others 3-4 so that’s a good sign but CALLTO SEE IF YOU CAN VERIFY IDENTITY IF YOU HAD NO BARS JUST GENERIC MESSAGE “it’s being processed you’ll be given a deposit date when available bs”



    No change……I really hope there is one tonight. Fund out that I wasn’t accepted until 2/5 today but its 2/23 and I have no bars I am highly skeptical that I will get a ddd on Friday. All I can do is wait I guess. Today was my bday and I ALWAYS get my taxes on my b day.



    Hello every one. I have been following this forum and I must say I felt better after reading your post. I call the irs today and spoke with a nice lady ( thankfully!!) and she advised me that my return had been recently kicked out of the system because I did not file the 1095-A just like many of you, but the thing is I amended my return like a week later (oops) because the 1095-a form came the next day. She told me that I would need to fax in the 8962 Form in which I already have completed because of the amended return that I did. She also said that because I amended the return before the first one completed will just delay it even longer……DangIt!!!!!!!!!!! She told me that the fax number is on the letter, so I guess I should just forget about my money until tax time again ????

    Not so happy tax payer



    I actually filed and received a text that I was accepted on 1/19 but when I called the IRS on 2/12 I was very rudely informed that my return was not accepted until 2/1. I was told to call back on 2/22 if I hadn’t received my refund. I was a good girl and patiently waited. Of course I didn’t receive my refund so I called and was told that all refunds were delayed by 2 weeks so give them until 3/7 to process the refund. Well today I lose all bars on wmr so I called them back. I got a very rude lady that told me that I was informed that I would be receiving a letter requesting I fax in a form 1095A when I called on 2/12. I can assure you I was never told that and the subject was never mentioned at all. She tells me that a letter was mailed out on 2/19 with further instructions. Then I tried to ask her what all would be needed so I could have it ready and she she yells into the phone WAIT FOR THE LETTER then hangs up on me. So I’m waiting for a letter to come in the mail so I can fax this form and wait….. I was told by the second rep I got when I called back was that it takes up to 2 weeks to scan the papers in after received then they take another 6 weeks to process it. Looks like I won’t be getting my return until April/May for the first time ever :(



    I could order account transcript on 2/12, still cannot order return. Account transfer was basically blank. No figures dates or codes, just a blank template.



    Can y’all order your transcripts?? I could order mine as of yesterday morning but with no updates Monday and Tuesday maybe I’ll see something Wednesday morning. Lost bars on 2/19 but kept TT 152. Who knows



    @kiki, CO here I called yesterday and they are cutting a batch of checks Wednesday. They told me that once fed is approved they move forward. My state was finalized the day after the IRS.



    Where is TexasGirl…

    I filed 2/2 and accepted 2/2, 1 bar and tt152 until 2/19 when I lost bars and went to “still processing, refund date when avail” still have tt152. Today is 21 days, called irs, they said my return went to reject dept and they have 9 more days to process or send a letter. No letters have gone out as of now. I called advocate and got assigned due to hardship, have to wait 3 days. I don’t know what input or advise I’m looking for but I want to hear something! I’m getting pretty depressed about this, I have been counting on this for awhile now. What to do



    Hey everyone.
    I filed on 2/2 and have t been able to order any transcripts. And I’ve been on one bar since 30 minutes after filing.
    Yesterday I lost the one bar it’s all just writing. In so sick of this waiting game. It’s been absurdly long this year.
    My question is really if anyone can tell me the phone number they used to speak with someone at the irs and how they got to a rep. Also you can go online to idverify I’ve read. So in case people are having trouble on the phone service. I wish they told us that we needed to verify three weeks ago.. I hope this isn’t the case and I hope I get my refund soon. Silly me was banking on having a really nice Valentine’s Day out hahaha, thankfully I didn’t hold my breath!
    Thanks, Matt



    Hey all, I’ve been following this forum thread since I filed on 2/1. Here’s my basic timeline:

    Filed 2/1 @ 12:45

    Accepted 2/1 @ 1:35

    No update to WMR, just one bar and Topic 152

    WMR bar disappeared ~2/17

    Called IRS 2/22 at 7AM sharp: waited 40 mins, talked to the sweetest lady they have probably ever hired, a one Mrs Hirschberg (that’s how she introduced herself: Missus, no first name, adorable NY accent)
    Mrs Hirschberg explained that IRS received my return on 2/2 (though I’d been tracking it since 2/1 on WMR) and to call back the next day, although she did explain that there was nothing on my account to indicate a hold and that I didn’t need to verify ID

    ~6 hours later, received IRS Letter 5071C

    Verified online: took several attempts to get in and had to use my old address to do so; answered three questions about previous addresses and known associates, no problems and passed IDVerify within about six minutes.

    No update to WMR as of 10:48 AM 2/23



    @ Chon Hopefully a change tonight sigh.



    Soni finally got through to id verify. She ‘released the hold’ on my refund so it can continue processing. They are giving the general 9 week wait response but its basically like I’m just filing today so hopefully no more than 2 wks.



    I’m like you Drea nothing yet. Florida- tt152 , amount and no bars still. Filed 2/1 and accepted 2/2.



    I called and I do have to id verify. She gave me the number to do it but I can’t get through.

    For the ones that’s done it, what will I need and what do they ask?



    Still no bars….I’m starting to freak out a little….I really hope i get my ddd my 2/26. I filed 2/1 come on what is the hold up.



    Good Morning All,
    Anyone filed a state return in CO. What’s been your experience? We filed 2/1 but didn’t call about it till 2/19. They told my husband that they were verifying wages and it would be 1-3 weeks. What does that mean? She said they didn’t need anything from him and to just wait. We got our federal but boy I’d really like to get the state resolved so taxes can officially be over this year.



    I called them twice today, lol,in the morning the lady told me I need call back tomorrow, but I just can’t wait until tomorrow, because since I filed I didn’t sleep good at all,always worry about this,so I called them back this evening,got a nice lady, she spent almost 30 minutes to check my account, but the sad thing is it’s only shows they sent me a letter on feb16,she said didn’t show what information I still missing, then I guess I have to wait for that letter to coming, it’s going to kill me:`(



    @ impatientlywaiting

    Same here filed 2/1 accepted 2/2, ordered returns 2/19. Bars gone tt 152 and “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available”.

    Hopefully we get an update tonight. I really think I got re-sequenced and wasn’t accepted until 2/8. We’ll see tt still has me at a ddd of 2/26. I really hope I am not waiting past Friday 2/26.



    @ Sheka it says “your refund is still being processed, a refund date will be provided when available.

    Still….since sat night was really hoping for the bars and a ddd but I guess I can’t freak out until 2/26. That’s when tt said I should have it. Just sucks tomorrow is my b day and I have $13.67

    LMAO :(



    Ok. I’m going to call in the morning and see



    @impatiently waiting

    I tried to do it online after she told me because I could not get through the phone line but it did not let me. I think you can only do it online if you recieved the letter but if the rep tells you you HAVE to do it over the phone. I never got a letter or anything. You might want to call just to see if they tell you to do it.



    Filed 2/1
    Was able to order return transcripts on 2/19 but still no ddd over the weeknd. *pissed* due to no tax topic, 4 digit code or anything just generic message “return still being processed will give ddd when available” Called today told them I wanted to check to see if any letters might have been sent to be. Ended up being told I needed to ID verify and given a number to call to do so. After an hour for wait and the lady having to do the test twice due to her system going “down” I passed and was told she would notify to take the “hold” off of my return and to have it released but give 9 weeks. Think it will be this or next week and it is done but just had to be verified. Here’s praying for my ddd asap…



    Can you I’d verify even if you didn’t get a letter? I tried and it said it couldn’t very my information online. Didn’t get a letter but figured why not just do it since it seems everyone is having to



    I got my letter today in the mail to verify my identity. I did it online and it took 5 minutes. Should have my return in 2-6weeks. My bars completely disappeared a few days ago with the same topic 152. The website is idverify.irs.gov



    Well I called the IRS this morning and was told that I was placed on hold for ID fraud. When i went out to get the mail i had a letter from them stating to verify online….. why the hell Couldn’t they have just sent me an email or told me in one of the 1000 conversations I’ve had with them in the last few weeks….. Then on top of all that Its going to take another 4-6 weeks…. FML



    Thank you for the update,maybe I have same problem like yours,about 1095a,I just got my 1095a today, I only had Obama care for 3 months, I thought I don’t need file that,and I called irs this morning ,the lady told I need call back tomorrow, but anyways, how long will take them to send the letter to me which the letter you was talking about?thanks



    So just got through with a lady, I had a letter sent to me called a 12 c or something, basically I have to file my 1095 a forms, wait for this letter to send to a fax number then I have to print out a 8962, from the IRS website, and fax all those to them. Then it could be anywhere to from 2 to 9 weeks before I get my refund. I’m glad I just know something now, which I figured that was the problem, plus the lady was really sweet. She said a lot of the hold up is those forms 1095a cause a lot of ppl didn’t file them.



    “Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.”

    Since Friday night :(



    Hi,everyone good morning!
    I just off the phone with IRS,and was waiting for about 45 minutes, the lady answered the phone,and she told me I have to wait 21 processing days,so she’s unable to look at my account until tomorrow, And tell me if nothing is change by tomorrow give them call back,that’s stupid, everybody filed after me already got their money, smh,hope I have update tomorrow or I need call them again:(



    do the message still say that “a refund date will be posted when available” or do it just say ur refund is still being processed….I ask this because Friday my message got shorter and only said it still being processed then Saturday I woke up with a ddd….so u might get one tomorrow or one day this week be hopeful




    still no bars “your refund is still being processed”. According to tt it’s supossed to be here Friday, but I am getting skeptical.



    Still nothing, ill be calling today. I will update later.



    Filed 2/1, accepted same day according to the text I received and Turbo Tax. One bar status and still says processing with 152 code. Called 2/19 and got someone surprisingly in about 15 minutes. Played dumb and said I thought it was accepted in January. Guy was really nice and said it was actually accepted 2/8 and the IRS sent out a letter dated on 2/12 needing more information. Would not give any more details than that. Said to give it 2 weeks for letter to arrive (not sure where they are mailing it from). If haven’t received by then call back and they will send out another letter. Said to do what letter says (again, wouldn’t tell) and I should received refund in 4-6 weeks, it goes to the bottom of the batch. I said what if I owe money though and not a refund, then of course it will be moved to the top and is due April 15th. I already received my state return a week after accepted, so I don’t know what they could possibly want…



    Well hopefully i get some kinda of news one way or the other… i wish they would hurry up with it. Id rqther find out its not coming and be 100% informed then to wait around for some stupid ass orange bar to tell me when i get paid…. #pissed off



    Hi everyone.
    Well, even though I have my DDD (of 02-24), now I’m kinda worried about the offset thing. Even though when I call it says I have 1 offset and the amount is for $43.00 to be taken on the 02-24. I hope that’s all they take. -__-
    I guess I am going to just be a major worry-wart until the 24th and see what actually happens that day. I keep seeing a lot of people have so many different types of issues this year I guess I just keep expecting something to go wrong , as bad as that sounds. Even on the FB igmr page groups a lot of people are having issues this year. I reay hope everyone gets their money soon!!! So we can all stop worrying .


    waiting in mo

    Filed&accepted 2/1
    (received state refund the next week)
    WMR was at 1 bar w tt152 until 2/19 then:

    No bars, no TT, but all info and refund amount on side still there and it says: still being processed and a refund date will be provided when available.

    This is still where I’m at and still
    I can’t order either transcript.

    I don’t think I said still enough.



    @drea just to let you know I ordered my transcripts on the 8th received them on the 12th and didn’t get DDD until 2/20. When I called on Thursday they said everything was still processing, and in no way could I be holding my transcripts…… They ended up taking a tax debt that I have proof that was paid. Figured I’ll get my return then fight for the $1500 they took that was previously paid. The IRS is messing up left and right this year. Transcripts don’t seem to mean anything any more.



    Sill no bars….was able to order return tran on 2/19….sigh

    I really hope I get one tonight. But I am not worried since I was able to order return. That means I’m done processing. If I don’t get my money this week though I will be livid.



    Well everyone, let’s keep each other updated on what the Lie R S has to say tomorrow.



    Well no update. I have never made it past 21 days and I had an offset in 14. I guess I will be calling Monday. I am so bummed right now.



    Thank the lord I woke up to a DDD of 2/25!!! Good luck to everyone..hopefully Wednesday will shoot out a huge update for you all!!!



    No update for me today, it’s crazy this year…



    Well, there was another update last night but I wasn’t apart of it. I saw a few ppl in my fb group got their update. It’s supposed to be until 6.

    Usually they don’t on Sunday as far as I know also Philly but as we’ve all seen, this year is VERY different and has no rules, regulations, or specific dates for that matter.




    Omg this is seriously making my husband and I sick lately. Literally sick, we both have ulcers anyway so this is just too much. We have been following this page since we filed and it’s so helpful but also so sad to see how many people are just as frustrated as us.. Filed 2/1 like everyone else here, the one bar popped up that same day. Stayed at 1 bar until around 1:00 am (EST) last night and thats when we lost our bars. Now I’ve been blocked for 24 hours since 10:30am. But last I checked we still had no bars. I got a letter from PA that we needed to confirm our identity before we would get our state refund, no problem, did that the day the letter came. I have not gotten any letters from the irs but of course I did call and asked if the delay could be the same thing and we Might need to confirm our identity for the federal since we did with the state but basically I was told to go piss up a rope since it wasn’t 21 days they wouldn’t even take my information to check. I have never ever waited more than 14 days for my federal refund. My state one didn’t show up until July one year but never an issue with the federal return. My husband only has 1 W2, I don’t work and we have 1 child. It’s an easy return. I can’t take this anymore. Is it true we may really see an update tonight? I thought they didn’t do anything on Sunday’s.

    ~Phrustrated in Philly lol



    Still no bars…but was able to order return transcripts last night…hopefully tonight?

    Filed 2/1
    accepted 2/2



    There will be an update again tonight. After 12am. I wish I could attached the irs Screenshot but just keep checking. It’ll be from 12am midnight tonight to 6pm tomorrow then again midnight Monday morning to 6ammonday morning




    I only had it for a couple months too, and didn’t file my 1095, so I’m guessing that’s why. We def need to call Monday.



    Also I’m seeing a lot of people who did not get a update & are not getting anywhere with IRS. I HIGHLY suggest after your 21 days to call & get a tax advocate. You can find the link on the IRS page. I also posted it on here before. If you can’t find it let me know. But it is also at the very bottom of the IRS page & says tax advocate & you just click it & then there you will find a way to click to get instructions on how to get one. I’ve had one before & they make the turn around time with the IRS 3 times faster!!!




    Filed 2/1 Accepted 2/1
    2/10 lost all bars still had tax topic 152 no amount just date of 12/31/2015
    2/12 able to order account transcript
    2/19 able to order return transcript
    2/20 WMR updated with DDD 2/24!!! Going into my bank account so doubt it will come early like netspend! Boo! But at least it is coming!!! Ya! We are finally making progress!



    Did taxes on 2/1. On 2/2 received 1095a. Decided to do amendment on Feb 19th. I think this might be the reason that I haven’t got refund yet.



    We got our DDD 2/24/16! They took the offset my husband owes from last year and posted how much the refund will be. Filed 2/1, IRS received 2/2 and bars went away around the 6th. I am hoping all of you get updates tonight!



    I think they drag us out purposely. By the time you get your money your so broke that you have to spend it…. Or so excited that you go blow it on a bunch of bs….. not me of course :)



    Filed and accepted 2/1. Was able to order both trannys 2 weeks ago. 2 days later I lost my bars and lost TT. No update today either. This is bullcrap!!!!!



    Thanks for the update Drea

    Hopefully this morning !



    Well it’s 8:44am CST (Houston) and my bars have not returned nor a date



    I only have obamacare for maybe for 2 or 3 months only,I didn’t filled 1095 form,you think that’s why?but anyways, call them on Monday and find out what’s going on



    Just got a DDD of 2/24/2016 the irs has offset us for a bill that I have proof was paid in full….. I’m happy to be getting most of it back and now need to figure out how to get the offset amount back. Just an FYI I called the offset hotline for my self and my husband and to this day it says we have no Offset’s?!?!?



    no updates for me :( still showing there was a delay in processing your return and your refund date may have changed. still showing reference code 1121. I filed on 2/1 and was approved then it all disappeared. I don’t understand what the hell is going on! I have been told 3 different things when calling the IRS. All I have is 1 W2 I am single no dependent and I have health insurance thru my employer that I have been with for 15 years. this I bull crap!



    Filed 2/1 accepted 2/1. Lost my bars last night, still not approved. :( but have a question everyone who didn’t get a DDD, did y’all not file your 1095a forms? Me honestly I only had the obamacare crap for just a month, so didn’t think I needed To file that, and every time I call I have to wait my 21 days to get an answer. So never got a letter or anythin . So I’m thinking that’s my holdup.

    And grats to everyone who did get a DDD.



    Me either,still can’t order account or return transcrip, no bars ,just don’t know how long do I still need to wait,maybe I’m going to give them a call on Monday



    Lost my bars, but no ddd I hope that’s a positive sign

Just was able to order 2015 return transcripts, last night I was not able to. Hopefully this means good news for us finally! This has been a LONG wait, especially seeing my friends who filed before and after me with theirs already smh. Hope we all see that good ol DDD in the morning!

I was able to order my transcripts this week. Does that mean it is back to be released soon??? Still show 1122 and I have gotten the TT152 before on WMR



    Finally was able to order my return transcript today! Filed 2/1 accepted 2/1 lost bars 2/10 with tax topic 152 & no amount. Was able to order account transcript 2/12 & then return transcript 2/19. I’m a weekly updater so I will update when I know my deposit date or get my $!!! :)

    We changed the amount claimed as Earned Income Credit (EIC) on Line 66a of your Form 1040. The amount claimed as EIC was figured or entered incorrectly on your tax return.
    The Earned Income Credit is figured on worksheets in the tax return instructions. By completing the worksheets you compute a dollar amount that you use to find the amount of your Earned Income Credit from the Earned Income Credit Table. This amount is then entered on your tax return. Review your Earned Income Credit worksheets in your tax return instructions and Schedule EIC. Check for errors in math. Check to see you used the correct column in the Earned Income Credit Table for determining your Earned Income Credit.

    How does everyone know when the next big update is ?
    I am just curious. Lol. Y’all are giving me Hope !
    I keep seeing that there is a big update on Saturday, (tomorrow), just wondering how you knew that info? Thanks!



    @impatientlywaiting I know!! I have a feeling we are all are going to wake up to ddd’s.



    his still hasnt updated that his payment was sent lol so No

    Great minds think alike. i called 20 mins ago and got a very nice man (finally) and explained how i know it wasnt my 21 days yet (only 19) but i was getting a biut nervous and just wanted to makie sure they didnt needa anything from me. i verified my new address and old address and kids ssn and bdays lol and he finally said “Oh i see you there, we have your filing but it just hasnt been processed yet and to just give it a little more time and not to worry”

    Didnt really ease all my pains but good to know i wasnt being put off for something being wrong. just the slow system. hopefully now that we’ve brought ours to their attention they will push it on thru.



    Well i have hope. I talked to the niiiiicest irs rep at 8:11 EST this morning. I was concerned because I moved to a new city in October, updated my address with the USPS and was afraid of any letters they may have sent me not reaching me. I also called because last year I got my last name changed to my husband’s (even though we’ve been married 5 years) and that flagged me for id theft. My original reason of calling was to make sure i didn’t have to verify my id, and make sure things were going to go smoothly and not have any issues. I assured her I know my 21 days isn’t up until Monday but I just wanted to make sure everything looked ok. So after i verified my address she told me everything looks just fine, just hang tight, they have until Monday to process everything. So i’m reeeeeeaaaaaaalllllly praying i see that update tomorrow morning with a ddd of 2/22 or 2/24. I filed last year 2/1 and didn’t get my refund until June 24th.




    Did your husband update on WMR?



    @ Jenny

    not necessarily but from what I’ve seen; when you can order your transcript , within a day you have an update with your DDD. however, my husband got his money yesterday and still cant order his transcript online so I’m not sure what the deal is but they need to fix this.

    Its all screwed up this year.

    -Houston, Tx



    I tried to order my transcript few minutes ago,but still cannot to order it,is that means I’m not going to have update tomorrow?never wait this long to get my tax return



    Way to stay positive @Chajessi

    Im trying to stay optimistic and patient but its frustrating. Every one i know has gotten theirs and they ALL filed after me.

    still cant order transcript so that’s stressful b/c i know i wont have an update tomorrow

    Haven’t been able to order 2015 tax transcript…….

    5 minutes ago I was able to order my 2015 tax transcript. I’m super excited about that because that tells me that my return has been processed. I’m not convinced just yet that I will get a DDD in the next update (Saturday) but at least I know it has been looked at. 21 days will be Monday and I think the IRS is trying to avoid the calls, so the are trying to push out all of us 2/1ers!!! Stay Positive Guys!!!



    Same here,at least something changed, lol

    Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.


    waiting in mo

    Just checked WMR and I got this message:

    Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.

    with tax topic 152 and no bars… anybody have any idea what it means?



    Okay, I’m finally seeing some kind of movement! I haven’t been able to order my transcripts with my new address, but I just tried and was finally able to get my new address to go through. I’m still not able to order my 2015 return transcript, but hopefully I will be able to by tomorrow evening. That’s when I’m hearing another big update is happening.



    I think I will call them next Monday if still not update, which is 22 days since I filed,I even tried to check wmr

    Houston, TX



    Florida- still no change filed and accepted on 2/1 No bar and TT152. Patience is a virtue.

    I wasn’t accepted until 2/1



    I filed 1/31 and was accepted five mins later. I just got off the phone with a nice IRS lady, and she informed me that I wasn’t accepted until 2/. -_- She doesn’t see anything wrong with my return, and to basically keep checking WMR. I’m hoping I get an update soon. My WMR is the standard message, 1 bar, with tax topic 152.



    Filed 2/1 with TT, IRS received 2/2, no bars or anything since 2/5

    OK, just called IRS again. The lady I spoke with on Tuesday told me to call today if I did not have an update. This lady I just spoke with was SUPER nice. Explained everything in more detail to me. Our refund is approved but since we have an offset for my husbands last years taxes it takes another week. What she sees in the system is the offset is completely paid and has a posting date of 2/29, she explained they operate a week in advanced so when she sees that the posting date is 2/29 she said we will have our refund before that. We will most likely see an update in the WMR site by Monday and since we are direct deposit and direct deposits are done everyday we will have our money most likely next week. They do update the systems every night but generally big updates happen on Friday as that is the end of their “cycle” week. After talking with her I feel more at ease, our 21 days is Tuesday and she feels we will have our refund by then. I hope this helps anyone out there in limbo. Once I get an update I will post it here! Have a great day everyone. I hope y’all hear news very soon!



    …I finally got a hold of a nice rep who looked at my account for me and told me that my return is being held for farther review they are looking at mines manually….I guess because I had fraud in the past. but I guess I will get it in may again which sucks. I filed for hardship to see if I can get it sooner because I was really counting on this money to keep me a float because I’m pregnant and not able to work because of my health and being high risk pregnancy. then have two others and a household to maintain…..without this money I don’t know what I’m going to do



    I guarantee you we will all have an update Sat with a DDD for 2/25.

    i’m not gonna get my hopes up though.

    Good Morning everyone

    waiting in mo

    Still NO change. Filed&accepted 2/1, received state refund the next week

    I can’t order either transcript, wmr is still at one bar and “processing” and tt152.

    What gives?

    Wouldn’t my bars disappear if something was wrong? Or a new tax topic show up?



    Still nothing for me, filed and accepted 2/1. Cannot order transcript, no update, and no money magically appearing in my bank. Desperate to finish my house so I can live in it, and it’s is taking forever. I wish I could charge interest and penalties.



    No update for me…lookslike it will be 2/26 :(

    Filed 2/1




    Thanks!!! I’m going to take a look now.



    DDD 2/18 and nothing yet. Called bank nothing pending.



    @impatientlywaiting yes I’m very serious she told me to try back a little later because their system down and that they are not able to do anything. ..



    @ sheka

    Are you serious?!!!! wtf … once tax season over they need to update their entire system b/c this is BS.

    We filed 2/1 and havent gotten anything, meanwhile, ppl filed 2/4 and after are freaking balling.

    i agree Sheka, we may as well start looking for payment on the 24th-25th.



    I had requested both of my transcripts 2/8/2016 and I just received them in the mail. The date on my Return transcript is 2/22/2016. I don’t know if that’s for sure the date but its giving me hope.



    as of right now I’m not sure if we are going to see an update this week everyone. I say this because I just called the irs and spoke to a rep and she said that their system has shut dwn once again :(



    @LLC thank you!!!, If you filed through turbo tax and did the direct deposit option to your bank account then they will send the money to santa barbara tax group. Here is the website. https://www.sbtpg.com/. Click on taxpayers and then select option 2, enter your tax info and it will let you know if they have received it. By the way turbo tax is still showing accepted only and WMR is still showing approved with a DDD date but not sent. smh.




    Congrats on your $$$$$$ I have a DDD of 2/18 as well. How were you able to check that u had a pending deposit? Was it over the phone or bank website :)



    Hi Guys,

    I wanted to give you all my update:
    Filed 2/1
    Both accepted on 2/2. one bar until 2/13 and I got approved and DDD of 2/18.

    I just checked santa barbara website and it they received my deposit it should be in my bank account tomorrow morning or after midnight tonight.



    Good morning Fellow 2/1ers

    Still Nothing my way.

    I’ve concluded itll be here around March-ish LOL

    I’m so frustrated seeing all these ppl balling lol and i’m sitting here like…….

    i just need new tires…that’s it lol and maybe a new car to go with it lol ijs

    stay positive my babies..we will be Rich together ! :)



    Here’s the tax advocate link. It goes based on your state & also they will not do anything unless it’s been past your 21 days just FYI!


    I did not receive a update today. I am a weekly updater so I honestly don’t expect one until Saturday. I think I will get my update Saturday & my deposit Monday or Wednesday. When I use netspend I get it on Monday & my bank account I will get it on the day that put it to hit. I split my deposit this year to half going to my netspend & half to my savings so I’ll probably see my netspend Monday. Crossing fingers anyway! If not then I will be contacting my tax advocate! Luckily I already have one from all my issues with identity theft before so I have her number & she said once she’s assigned to me she will always be my advocate as long as she works there. If she doesn’t then when I call the number I have will go to my new advocate. So congrats to everyone with money or a update today! Everyone else we will be here a few more days! Ugh!




    Finally got my refund in my bank account this morning at 5am! WMF hasn’t even updated to refund sent yet.

    Filed: 2/1
    Approved: 2/13
    DDD: 2/18
    Deposit Date: 2/17
    Bank Checking account

    Good Luck Everyone!! This year was really screwed up by the IRS!



    Hi,everyone anything new today?
    I checked wmr few minutes, still no update for me,unable to order return transcript, smh,just tired of this waiting game,it’s drive me crazy:<



    How do you get in touch with a tax advocate?



    look like I will be contacting a tax advocate because I’m still not able to order neither or my transcripts and I’m pretty sure that I won’t get my money by Tuesday and the reps are refusing to look at my account. I have a child on the way with two others and not being able to work…I’m was counting on this money to keep out family a float til I can start back working….getting really pissed



    Hello everyone! Just wondering if anyone knows what times the IRS sends your Direct Deposit to the bank is it like at night or can it be at random anytime of the day? Thanks hope somebody has some insight :)



    I don’t know about other states, but Oklahoma will not release your return until they know the federal return is approved or is going to be approved! My aunt works for Oklahoma tax commission & she said that Oklahoma will always check your federal refund status & make sure there are no problems & if there is the slightest question they will not release the taxes. This happened to me also 2011-2013 when our federal taxes were held up. We did not receive our state until 2014 for all of those years! You can’t get a tax advocate for the state so we were just stuck & unfortunately my aunt can’t help because they are not allowed to work on family members & plus they don’t get to pick who’s taxes they work on. They are just assigned to a worker & they could be in any office in the state & so ours was held up. Last year & this year we got ours before our federal & then we got our federal the Wednesday after our state. Which was 2 days later last year but since Monday was a holiday I didn’t get my state until today so if it stays the same that would mean Thursday for federal, but I’m not counting on that. That may just be a coincidence. But from what the IRS said today they don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t have it by Monday. So hopefully I have it by then! I’m just happy to find out nothing is wrong & it is coming. It’s just a matter of being processed & them being behind from all the issues they had with the system crashing & the hacking. Hope that helps! I don’t know if that’s for every state, but I know that’s for Oklahoma.


    waiting in mo


    How do you know that about the federal refund being ok if state is approved?

    I filed and was accepted 2/1 got state the next week
    Wmr is at 1 bar, tt152, says processing
    Still can’t order either transcript



    Oh also for the 1st time ever I received a letter from my state Oklahoma to go online & verify my ID & I did that on 2/11 & I received my state refund today. So that’s good. Because state will not send out a refund unless federal refund is ok! I learned that the hard way with all my problems with the identity theft & refund being held up from 2011-2013! So getting ur state refund means your federal is ok & will be coming soon!



    Ok so here’s my deal filed early 2/1 7am accepted like 5 mins later thru turbotax. My bars disappeared 2/10 and says it’s being processed & will update with a deposit as soon as possible. It has tax topic 152 & the amount is gone it just has December 31,2015. Still says this! Then Friday 2/12 I was able to order my account transcript, but not my return. I know I’m a weekly updater because someone tried to file taxes in 2011 under my husbands social! Took us until 2013 to get those fixed then my 2012 & 2013 were messed up so I called a tax advocate which was the BEST decision i ever made! The taxes were being held because I did direct deposit to a prepaid card in my name & my husband was listed 1st on our taxes so they rejected it & the Irs said they had to prove it was our account! So I waited a year & nothing so finally when I files my 2013 I called a advocate & she did wonders! She called me back the same day everytime I called her! She kept me updated if anything changed & needless to say she got us our money by that August! She was Amazing! I would highly encourage anyone who goes over the 21 days to call a tax advocate & they will work for free & they can put a emergency rush on it if you can provide proof of hardship such as late rent, bills being cut off, etc….. She said sometimes they will even give u the $ ahead of time but u have to sign a lot of paperwork saying if something happens & u weren’t suppose to get all that money then they will take it out of ur future taxes and/or wages!! So be careful with that! So anyway I haven’t had a update which for weekly filers WMR updates Wednesday & Saturday. I decided to call the IRS today being paranoid because we have to use the identity theft pin they send every year & with all the issues I wanted to make sure I didn’t need to verify. So I talked to a very nice gentleman that actually looked through my history as I described how complicated it was & he was very sympathetic & said man you have been thru a lot! He said no you do not need to verify that I was still in the processing stage & he confirmed I was a weekly filer & said he can’t see if anyone has worked my case until the updates. He said he sees no reason why I shouldn’t have it by Monday or even by the end of the week. So to go into more detail I worked for the department of veteran affairs processing education claims. Which is the same processing as IRS. We have what we call a que & we have to process so many a month. Anyway everyday we pull claims down from the que. They are not in any certain order. They are separated out by how complicated they are. There are what we call different teams. So people who have worked their longer will pull the complicated claims & the newer people will pull the easier claims from different ques. So the dates don’t really matter. We never even look at the day. We just click pull from que & it automatically sends us 10 claims. We can’t have more than 10 in our que at a time. So we process & send on to a supervisor to overlook & they sign off & send on to the payment department. The Irs is the same. If you are daily updater you will see the process the next day. If you are weekly like I am & say Sunday someone worked mine & finished it & it’s already approved & pmt is already approved then I wouldn’t see that until the next update on Wednesday. And yes the Irs is working everyday!! They are on mandatory overtime so they get to choose Saturday or Sunday. We also do this at the beginning of a school year for education processors. Make sense??? So on a good note I looked at my last years tax info & I filed 2/10 & was able to pull my account transcript 2/21 & saw no update at all on my bars or transcripts & on Wednesday 2/25 my money was deposited into my bank account! Of course with Monday being a holiday & my bank being closed it could be pushed back to the 18th, but I don’t really understand why since the IRS worked Monday & if they sent the direct deposits thru I would assume they sent them to post on Wednesday like normal & the bank is open then & should deposit on that day. I don’t know. Then again sometimes when we worked those extra days & holidays we would be told to change the date of deposit because the department that handled the payments did not work overtime or on holidays. Only the processors! Trust me this is the same for disability, education, IRS, & more! The building I work in does disability & education & the people who process are always the ones who work overtime! When it’s not the busy season & we get over a certain amount of claims in the ques then we go back on mandatory overtime! That’s just so we don’t get to far behind! We get big bonuses for being ahead! So our supervisor is always on our case about making sure our ques are empty by the end of the week! If they are then she gets a bonus, her supervisor gets a bonus, the president of our department gets a bonus & we get a nice email from the secretary of the president on our performance! So it is very very push push! So I’m sure they are rushing them like crazy! But if you are one of those people that had to verify & they told you it would be 6-9 weeks that’s bull!! Get a tax advocate! Reason I say that is because if I have a claim that I need more info on then I can put it on hold in my que. No one else can touch that claim. It’s in my que & on hold. Once I get ur information back I have 4 weeks to get urs finished. So a lot of people put those on the back burner because they are not fast to process so we may not meet our production quota. So we mark it on our calendar to tell us the last day to process & then do it. It then goes to our supervisor who can also hold it before she signs off then it goes to the payment department. If you get a tax advocate they will find out who’s que it is in & email them & they will pull it immediately & start working it because once they are contacted by a advocate they have 72 hours to work it! So big big difference!!! You can get ur $ way faster if u call them!! They don’t work for the IRS! They are separate & work for the people to help when u can’t get anywhere with the IRS & that way u don’t have to sit & wait for letters. The IRS will then start communicating with ur tax advocate & they will call u immediately so it saves so much time! Hope this helped explain some of the process! Sorry so long!!! ????



    Hoping for a an early direct deposit my DDD is 2/18 but wishing for an early deposit im on pacific (west coast) time. Any updates from any east coasters that might have gotten lucky with an early deposit with a 2/18 DDD?



    i filed 2/1 and was accepted the same day ; bars disappeared 2/6 i just want to let everyone know if your wmr dont issue you to do anything DON’T if u try and do id verify bfo your 21 days and they didn’t ask for you to do so then processing will take longer just wait it out the best thing to do



    If you lost your bars on wmr and cannot order return transcripts you need to verify your identity with the irs

    For online verification go to : https://idverify.irs.gov/IE/e-authenticate/welcome.do



    Any updates? I filed on the first of February and was accepted a few minutes later. Now it’s the 16th and I’m still on the first bar.



    Thanks @LLC and @Autum

    I’m gonna set an alarm now for 3 am lol

    talk to you all tomorrow




    I read somewhere that they update WMR at 3am or so each night. Isk if thats correct but I checked my WRM at 12am and no update till 6am there was a DDD waiting for me. Hope that helps :)



    they update between 3am and 6am…I checked it at 2am and nothing then again at 5am and it was updated




    I think they update their systems at 7am est.



    This is Straight BS!!!

    I’ve heard that also about b re-sequenced. that first week of Feb fuxx’d everybody it seemed.

    i wish knew the exact time they updated at night lol

    this is gonna make me crazy



    Hey there,

    Just another update-
    Filed and accepted with TT on 2/1.

    No updates or changes up until this point with my fed return. Not able to order return transcript. Ordered account transcript. No bars and no DDD.

    Spoke with IRS today and they said they didn’t even receive my return until the 3rd. Told me to wait full 21 days then call back if I didn’t get it.

    Good luck to all



    In case you didn’t know: some 2/1-2/6 ers got re-sequenced and their acceptance date was actually 2/8. I bet I was one of those filers but…we’ll see maybe we’ll have an update tonight…I doubt it though I think if you haven’t gotten it by now your ddd will be 2/26 if you filed 1/31-2/8. SIGHHHHHHHHHHH. Trying to stay positive I could be getting audited or some other bs.



    There a ppl who have a ddd and they filed on 2/7. Life wtf is going on. My state pushed my ddd back 8 business days sigh… sigh…sigh. Next year I’m filing the last week of Jan. I waited until Feb 1st but it seems the first week of Feb is just as bad as the beginning of tax season :-/.

    ITS MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL. BUT SERIOUSLY. >:[email protected]
