So I filed 1/20 with TT and was accepted the same day. I have no transcripts, no bar, nothing. Anyone else that is with me lets post here and keep each other updated. I have no hope seeing all those with 23/24 acceptance getting money this week even. If anyone finds out any info post that here too. Thanks!!

Filed w/ TT on 2/12 & accepted by IRS on the same day. On 2/27 I received a letter w/the code 53. I filed & mailed my missing return on the same day I received the letter. Here it is 4/3 & still nothing. Almost 2 months later. Not sure what to do now. I have a grandchild that will be here soon & I have 2 months of bills piling up. What can I do now? Can someone please help me?March 17, 2015 at 9:48 pm #4110404
I am going through the same thing. I was told last Friday 3/13 that my refund was released. My transcripts still haven’t updated. Irs cp63 dept told me that they should update with a 571 846 this Friday 3/20. My question is how long after you got your 571 846 codes did you get your refund. They told me 3/13 to allow 2 to 4 week for the irs system to release the refund and dd. How long did you wait before you actually got your refund. Your the only person on these forums that seems to be experiencing the same thing I am going through.March 17, 2015 at 11:58 am #4110368
I agree, being prompt seems to be a bad thing where the IRS is concerned. I did call yesterday for a TA, I faxed a 911 form three weeks ago and never heard a word, called the TA office for NC last week and left a message, never heard a word. Called the toll free number yesterday and they said I do qualify and an Advocate will contact me by Thursday, if they don’t I should call back. Guess we’ll see.March 17, 2015 at 10:40 am #4110357
I have the exact same thing happening. I filed the 17th, accepted the 20th. Lost my WMR info a couple weeks later. Then got a CP05 letter on the 16th of February stating they needed until April 9th to clear things up. I got a tax advocate though. She says there is a way to verify your income and that the letter actually states that we will receive further instructions or a refund date by April 9th–they don’t actually have to have it done by then. I faxed my income stuff to her last Thursday and we are shooting for a refund date of April 10. I would call the advocacy service and see if they can help you because I don’t think the IRS is actually doing anything to help those with income verification actually get pushed through.March 16, 2015 at 12:01 pm #4110317
I feel you. I have as to yet find out what’s taking mine so long. I will have to ask my boss if he filed the business taxes. Maybe that’s it. Though I don’t see why. Nothing for me has changed. I’ve held the same job for a decade. It’s do frustrating to see all these people who filed after january already have and spent their returns while us early filers are being punished for being prompt.March 16, 2015 at 10:31 am #4110314
I found out my hold was for income verification, they are waiting for my employers to send my w2’s in. I asked if I could just fax them and they said no, that people have made their own through fraud and they would have to come from the employer. I see where two of the three are listed in the transcripts now, guess it’s just waiting on one more. I filed the 20th of Jan and they have until April 9th to complete it. This tax season is the absolute worst.March 14, 2015 at 10:32 am #4110220
Hi Mia, I don’t know if you’re still reading posts here since you’ve received your refund. I hope you are because I now find myself in exactly the same position you had been when you finally got your transcripts updated and the WMR was updated.
Like you, my transcripts are showing an adjustment of refund and an 846 refund code. My WMR is showing the “Take Action! 151 Topic”. I have a cycle code of 20151005 (DDD: March 19, 2015). Everything exactly as you.
My question: Do I need to call the IRS or will they simply direct deposit my refund as scheduled according to the cycle code without me having to call in?
Since “Take Action! Topic 151” means, as you explained in your previous post, that the IRS has made adjustments to my filing (they reduced it by $508), and it doesn’t appear as if I *have* to call and allow me to make that choice but I want to be certain I don’t have to.
If you’re reading this, please let me know?
Thanks so much, Mia1/20/15. I think I’m finally seeing the light at the end of this loooooooooong tunnel. :-)March 9, 2015 at 2:03 am #4109906
I filed on 1/18 accepted on 1/20……had 1 bar for about a week. Then it disappeared…..no codes no anything…….just says my refund is still being processed. After the 20 days I contacted a TA who has been absolutely NO help!!! She told me to fax her my return and she would look into it. The 14 page return costed me $20.00 to fax only to find out she wasn’t able to do anything for me unless I had proof of financial hardship!!! I spoke with her on Thursday and she told me she would re-submit, she didn’t see any reason it hasn’t been processed yet and she would be in touch with me on 3/24. Is there anything else I can do? I need my money.March 8, 2015 at 6:33 pm #4109900
I filed on 1/20 accepted the same day. Went unpostable due to name change, that was fixed on 2/18 on 2/8 my WMR changed to return is still being processed and a refund date will be provided when available. 2/20 transcripts updated but had all zeros with the as of date of 3/09, on 2/27 transcripts update with all information with a 570 code as of 3/16/2015 and the cycle date is 20150805. 2/22 WMR updated, to still the same message your refund is being processed and a refund date will be provided when available, but the tax topic was gone amount was still there. on 3/1 WMR updated again with same processing message, tax topic came back, however this time amount was missing. 3/6 transcripts updated to an as of 3/23/15 date now and added an 971 code with an as of date of 3/23. Checked today and there is the same message, however, amount is back and tax topic is gone now. Does any of this make any sense? Why is the amount going missing on WMR and coming back, but taking the tax topic away?March 8, 2015 at 3:04 pm #4109893
Still nothing on my end and my TA seems to be AWOL. I guess she doesn’t work on Thursdays and Fridays! I’m so upset right now. It’s been almost three weeks since the Tax Advocate opened a case file for me and still nada.
I had also filed my 1095-A with the IRS on 1/23 and it was accepted on 1/23. Unlike your case, we had received subsidies for the entire year and the only discrepancy was about $0.35 cents to $0.75 cents (at most) in the columns, so I don’t understand what the hold up is.
I’ll be calling my TA Monday (again) and see if she’s done anything in the meantime. I was led to believe that a TA would help expedite the refund process, but that’s not my experience at all, especially for something so miniscule and easily fixed.
Anyway, I’ll continue to update until I finally receive our refund. I’m hoping that it’s NOT end of April or something because then I’m screwed BIG TIME.March 4, 2015 at 2:39 pm #4109640
Hi ICH! My return already had the 1095-A (had done it through Turbo Tax); I did check the Healthcare website, but my form was not one of those affected.
What had happen to me was that I only had health insurance for 4 out of the 12 months, and either me or Turbo Tax did an an error of requesting a credit for the remaining 8 months I did not have insurance. If I did not have insurance those 12 months, I can’t be a smarty pants and ask for the credits for those 8 months, so my return was reduced by those 8 months.
I was almost sure that was the problem, but submitted my return like that anyway.
Thank you for the kind words, ICH! Check other posts on the site; I have read a few things on their issues with the 1095-A forms they had to submit.
For everyone else, I’ll read posts here in case I missed anyone so I can respond!
(Time to pay some bills!)
MiaMarch 4, 2015 at 12:19 pm #4109629
Excellent news, Mia! I’m so happy for you. I know how long of a slog it’s been for you so you can imagine how happy I am that you’ve finally reached the end of this loooong and arduous journey!
Now my update…My Tax Advocate called me on Monday. The reason for her not having responded to the messages I left on her voicemail last week was because she was ill. However, she called to let me know that yes, indeed, the reason for the delay on my refund is due to my 1095-A Covered California form and the erroneous 1095-A’s they had sent out for approximately 100,000 Californians. Apparently, I was one of them.
There *was* a descrepency of about $0.75 cents per columnb, so no biggie. I had also received a letter from the IRS on Monday, saying that same thing; that they needed our 1095-A. My TA asked me to fax our 1095-A to her office, and I did so Monday afternoon – twice, actually (home fax). They called to let me know they’ve received it and will present it to the IRS directly and if they needed anything else they’d let me know. Hopefully, this will speed up the refund process since it’s not going to be difficult to enter the correct numbers.
Did you have to send in your 1095-A to the IRS? And if so, how long afterward did you finally get your refund?
Once again, Mia, I’m so happy for you that you’ve finished your long journey. I hope to be able to say that soon…March 4, 2015 at 8:26 am #4109610
Still nothing on this end.March 4, 2015 at 7:31 am #4109607
ICH, thank you for the warm words! Tracy, everyone!
Great news! I received my refund this morning (US Bank)!
WMR does say “Take Action!”, Topic 151 (Rights for Appeals) and to contact IRS with reference code 1242 (made an adjustment or took action on my account).
But my transcripts had the 846 refund code (with 3/16/2015 date and a reduced amount) that came up the day I made my last post here. A rep at the IRS (800-829-1040, option 1-2-2-4-1) also had confirmed to me yesterday that the IRS would make a deposit of $xxxx.xx into my account and also send a letter with the explanation of the reduced amount (hence the topic 151 and reference code 1242).
If you notice on my previous post, they had reduced it by an amount because of an error on the Healthcare form that they were able to correct internally themselves (just took forever in doing so!). But I received what I usually receive in previous years, so I’m fine!
So for you early filers or 1/20 filers, hang in there! Check your transcripts if they are available. Thank you for your well wishes, and good luck! If anyone has questions about my particular situation, I’ll try to answer as best I can!
Best of luck!
MiaMarch 2, 2015 at 3:53 pm #4109432
I finally got through to someone on Friday. I was told I’d be getting a letter this it next week and that basically I need to wait until 3/23 if I don’t have my refund by then, to call back.March 2, 2015 at 3:42 pm #4109429
hey so i filed on this day got a letter dated 01-28-2015 and the letter explained that my taxes this year where selected for reviewing and i needed to wait 60 days ..anyone else in this boat the 60 days will be at the end of this month being march i’ve called the IRS and TAS and it the same story all the way around.. i keep hoping but dam it man this is very frustrating.. i at one point was able to see my transcripts and now im not allowed to see them and have been locked out.March 2, 2015 at 11:39 am #4109404
Great news Mia! Still nothing on my end. I faxed a 911 form to TA but never heard anything from them, that was last Thursday I believe. Keep checking the transcript through out the day. Looks like they are going to wait until the completed date they gave me of APRIL 9TH So discouraged.March 2, 2015 at 6:51 am #4109383
Transcripts were not available all weekend and now they are, no change. Hopefully we will be seeing something soon. The TA is supposed to be contacting us on Wednesday, this year is crazy. It’s usually 9-14 days for us, and that would have been the first weekend of February. So now we are month late, and bills are backing up, trying to keep things going as much as possible, but it’s hard to stay positive.February 28, 2015 at 11:52 am #4109281
Congratulations! I’m so happy for you, although it’s still a long way away from 3/16/2015, and we shouldn’t have had to wait this long for our refund!
Still BUPKIS on this end, though. I was assigned a TA who had called me last Wednesday (in the evening!) but I missed her call because I was upstairs sleeping off my depression. Things are dire on our end.
Anyway, I called the following morning and left no less than TWO messages, and I’ve waited both Thursday and Friday for a call back. Nothing.
It appears I have to chase her down this Monday now. *sigh*
That said, NO change in anything. NO transcripts. NO orange status bar at WMR. NO letter from the IRS. NO refund. I’m beyond exasperated now.
But I’m happy that you’re seeing the light at the end of this loooooooong tunnel, Mia1/20/15. Please let us know when your refund’s been deposited so we can make a comparison between the official DD date and when you actually receive the refund. It would so incredibly appreciated.
Thanks again for your posts. You have given me – and I’m certain, countless others – hope as we try to find some hope in resolving our own refund tragedies.
Please keep us posted. Thanks so much, Mia1/20/15!February 27, 2015 at 9:11 pm #4109212
The TA got all of our information. He said that it looks like we will be getting our full refund very soon and someone will be calling us on Wednesday. So that is some good news. I think that if he saw the whole refund being released it was already getting close. I’ll keep everyone up to date as this progresses.February 27, 2015 at 3:54 pm #4109176
Looks like me and u are in the same boat. I also filed Jan. 20. I have no update or anything. I don’t kno what’s going on with it this yr. I hope u And ur wife hear something soon.February 27, 2015 at 3:22 pm #4109171
No update for me, but my wife is now on the phone with a TA. We are hitting hardship status on this wait. I’ve sent emails to our congressmen, not sure if they can help or not.February 27, 2015 at 11:09 am #4109153
Ladies and Gents… finally, an update!
You can see a little bit of my history in my original post.
WMR has not updated but I can FINALLY see my 2014 transcript.
846 Refund Code with refund amount and date of 03/16/2016, woohoo!
The amount has been reduced (Affordable Care Act error either by Turbo Tax or myself that the IRS corrected internally), but pretty much what I have gotten in previous years anyway so I am okay with it.
So for all you 01/20 with no transcripts and “Still Processing” filers! There is hope. Check your Transcripts today. Good luck (and will keep you posted when it actually deposits).February 22, 2015 at 1:18 pm #4108565
If you have already called the IRS and spoke to a live person using Mia1/20/2015’s prompts (1-800-829-1010 prompts: 1-2-2-4-1), and you’ve been told that you’ll be getting that letter from the IRS DON’T WAIT FOR THE LETTER.
Remember, they mail in bulk so that letter won’t go out until YOU’VE CALLED and within 7-15 days afterward. Then it still needs to arrive at your home which can take an additional 5 days! THEN you have to send whatever paperwork they need from you and, if I am to believe some posters here and other sites, your 21-day cycle starts all over again!
If you haven’t called, I’d advise you to do so. I believe they won’t do anything until you’ve called them because calling them will make you a priority, otherwise you’ll remain at the back of the line. Claim financial hardship (past due car payments with the risk of repo, eviction, etc. if that’s the case. Don’t be shy).
I’ve read in a Virginian article (http://www.roanoke.com/news/wire_headlines/new-woes-for-healthcare-gov-wrong-tax-info-sent-out/article_b2c7fd29-b892-5256-aafa-49aeccce0274.html#.VOkkUkdYdEE.gmail ) that everyone who has gotten subsidies through Healthcare.gov or CoveredCA has been flagged for further review – the review, being, that CoveredCA has transmitted to the IRS that there have been errors in about 100,000 1095-A forms.
Mine is not one of them, though. But now they have an excuse to pull ALL Federal returns from CA and delay them to compensate for the loss of 1,800 full-time IRS workers due to huge budget cuts by the House of Representatives last year.
I have been transferred to a local Tax Advocate with the IRS who should be calling me Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. I will tell him/her that I need to get this expedited due to financial hardship – because it’s TRUE.
I’m hoping to be able to fax whatever papers they may need (most likely a copy of the 1095-A as I have received it that shows no errors) and I WILL fax it since I’ve read elsewhere that sending it per snail-mail, even one-day delivery, will only have it get lost in the mail room. Ask to FAX your paperwork and ask for their specific FAX number.
So, if you haven’t called the IRS, please do, and use the prompts above. Good luck!
I will continue to update here until I’ve received my refund.February 21, 2015 at 10:24 am #4108435
i filled on 1/8/15 accepted on 1/12/15 on Jan 31 lost bars refund amount and everything , on feb 10 /15 was my 21 day i called and they said to me i have to wait for 8-6 weeks then i called again past tuesday and they said i have to call id theft i called wednesday answer all questions and stuff , i was loosing all my hope , today i check wheres my refund and my return was approved with dd for next week , this is a relieve but i will not rise victory until see the amount on my bank account ,this been a complete nightmare next year i will wait untill season beging and no early filling , i wish you the best for all of you guys this been horrible..February 20, 2015 at 10:24 am #4108221
It’s a mix bag. Some days you can’t get through at all, and the 800-829-1040 number just won’t work, and you get that pesky recording (due to high call volume etc etc or something to that effect).
But that’s the one to call. The 1-2-2-4-1 prompts should work to get through (on those days they don’t have that darn recording).
The 3107 would only be to to check if you have any offsets (but not tax owing offsets, but more like child support or unemployment).
The 800-820-1040 seems to be working today; use the 1-2-2-4-1 to get through.
Update: No deposit, no changes on WMR (no bars, same refund amount, same 152 topic), no transcript. :-/
I’ll check tomorrow and Monday and will give an update.
Good luck!February 20, 2015 at 9:48 am #4108211
And I forgot to add…we owe no taxes so there’s nothing to offset.February 20, 2015 at 9:46 am #4108209
Thanks so much. I really appreciate that you empathize. I’m really frustrated now. Today makes it exactly four weeks that I’ve been waiting. Hopefully, the waiting will be over SOON (and my credit card companies would be deeply grateful, too!).
Still no change this morning. Still the same NO nothing. I’m hoping that my refund won’t be too long after you receive your refund since you’re one day ahead of me.
The number (800) 829-1040 is not correct? But I got through to a receptionist twice using the prompts you’ve advised. Had the lines not been clogged, I would have gotten through to an IRS assistant, so I believe the number is correct. Is the (800) 305-3107 a better number to use then?February 19, 2015 at 3:38 pm #4108085
I filed 1/16 accepted 2/20. I just called and they discounted me because too many people were calling that department.February 19, 2015 at 3:01 pm #4108080
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you ICH.
Also, sorry for the type on the 800-305-3107.
Also check if you have any non-tax-owing offsets, such as with child support or unemployment.February 19, 2015 at 11:43 am #4108022
F/A 1/23. To date, NO refund, NO transcript, NO orange status bar (since they removed it on Monday, 2/9), NO codes, NO letters, NO ability to reach an IRS assistant to ask what is going on.
I already received my CA State refund on Wednesday, 2/11.
I tried calling the IRS this morning using the phone number and prompts Mia1/20/2015 has suggested, and I got through TWICE, to receptionist, Mr. Koffman and then Mrs. Harris. I was transferred only to be promptly disconnected since the lines are clogged up and they “can’t help me at this time” and to call back later.
I hope I’ll be in the same cycle as Mia1/20/2015 who believes she might get her tax refund this weekend since she was accepted on 1/22, one day ahead of me, but I have lost all confidence in the IRS’ ability to work efficiently at this time.
I will continue to try and get through to speak with someone, calling 1(800) 829-1040 and use prompts 1-2-2-4-1 in order to speak with an IRS receptionist.
I am SO frustrated! I need the refund to pay off the credit card bills for our businesses and we’re late, thanks to the IRS’s punting of our returns and punishing us for having filed early.
Both son and daughter have already received their State and Fed refund and they filed *after* we had. UGH!!February 19, 2015 at 10:49 am #4107992
I filed on 1/16 accepted on 1/21 and have been able to see my transcripts since the 30th. the bars on wmr dissapeared around the 1st and nothing has changed. I have a 570 and 971 on my transcripts with the date 2/16/15, on 02/14 i received a notice that a previous year wasnt filed and they were holding my taxes. i had mailed my previous year off on 2/4 when i saw that it hadnt been filed from my transcripts. I called on 2/17 and spoke to someone in the department that handles that and she told me that she sees my previous year taxes had been received and that she was releasing my current years taxes and that it could take an additional 2 to 4 weeks…. I have been checking both wmr and my transcripts each day since to see if theres been any update and there hasnt been. this is frustratingFebruary 19, 2015 at 8:05 am #4107948
I’ve been watching this forum like a hawk, lol (thank you to all contributors who ask and answer questions, and to Bart, he’s a beast! Thanks for help he gives).
Here are my numbers and some info; hopefully it sheds some tiny light to the 1/20 filers, like me, left in the dark.
One bar on WMR. Refund amount showing. Topic 152 (direct deposit topic).
No transcripts (N/A).
Last year was on Cycle 20140605 (as in previous years),
That would been refund should have been sent have sent on 2/06 (and would see in my account 2/07 of that Monday).
2/07 Bars disappears with new message:
‘Still processing, date will be provided when available etc etc).
Same refund amount showing and same Topic 152.
No transcripts still (just previous years).
21 days passed. No letters, no change in amount (good thing amount shows, correct)?, bars still gone, same generic message. Still N/A on transcripts.
As of this morning.
Same ‘still processing’ message. Same 152. Same refund amount. N/A on transcript.
(In other words, no change).
Called IRS yesterday.
-They say there was a correction that had to be made that can be corrected internally.
-No information is needed from me at this time.
-I should receive money within one or two weeks (I believe I’m on the weekly cycle so if they send $$ on Fridays, I’ll get my refund on Saturday or that Monday like the last five years).
-If I do not receive anything two weeks to call back.
HOH, with EIC, small W2s, tiny small business, Education credit, also Healthcare credit.
I think with the new forms required, and the additional work with Healthcare with millions and millions of filers, they are bogged down with work.
They may also be double checking my W2s, my education interest paid, reviewing the Healthcare credits I requested etc etc.
Correctable errors? Let’s take a look.
I filed with Turbo Tax. As I’ve done the last three years.
Same dependents (same kids, lol), relatively the same financial situation the last three years, also same address last three years.
As for Turbo Tax: Now that I look at the actual return, it did have small errors… such as whether or not the children had insurance all twelve months. TT would check off all the boxes, for each of the twelve months, one by one, but not check off the box it had to, which was “insured all 12 months”.
So things like that may have confused the IRS software, among other small things I found. Not exactly wrong numbers, but things that would potentially confuse software programs.
So looks like it’s “correctable internally”, and wait one or two weeks.
Hope this helps and gives some insight to people who are lost in the cloud with no info.
-To get a Live Person at the IRS (800-829-1040), chose prompts 1-2-2-4-1.
-Also check any you’ll have any non-tax owing offsets such as with child support or unemployment (I have none): 800-304-3107
I shall keep you posted (keeping my fingers crossed for this weekend deposit, or the next).February 19, 2015 at 5:50 am #4107925
FILE WITH TT ON 1/19 ACCEPTED ON 1/20
I HAD FIRST BAR UNTIL 2/07 AFTER THAT NOTHING HAS CHANGE.
I WAS ABLE TO CHECK TRANSCRIPT
CYCLE 20150602 03/02/2015
-570 (IS BEEN THERE SINCE THE DATE AND NOTHING HAS UPDATE, JUST THE DATE WAS 2/16/2015 IT WENT TO 03/02/2015…
THIS IS CRAZY 31 DAYS TODAY! 13 DAYS WITH SAME STATUS ON WMR WOW! 31-13 LUCKY ME!February 18, 2015 at 8:20 pm #4107876
Here is the response I received from the irs commissioner when I emailed him last week. Of course a bunch of BS
Dear Ms. Sprading,
Thank you for your message and my apologies for the difficulties you’re having. Our “Where’s My Refund” app works very well if there are no problems and it has helped us move millions of calls to the web site. But, as you note, if there’s an issue, you have no choice but to call. And calling this year is a problem for everyone, thanks to the fact that we simply don’t have enough people to answer the phones in the manner we would like and that taxpayers deserve.
If your return has been flagged, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have been a victim of identity theft. But it does mean that something in our filters has raised a flag designed to protect you in case of that problem. We know that refunds are important to everyone — hence our goal of getting them to people in no more than 21 days — but we also try our best to protect your account from being used by criminals who seem to be operating from around the world.
So, all I can say in particular, since your information is protected from disclosure even inside the IRS, is that we try to resolve issues like yours as quickly as we can. This may require, as you suggest, more discussion with you to make sure you are actually you and not someone in Asia or Eastern Europe. And, it may mean that we’ll suggest you use an Identity Protection PIN henceforth to make sure that your account is protected. But, again, we do our best to get to closure in these matters as quickly as possible.
One of these days — as I will tell the Congress when we discuss our appropriations — we hope to secure enough funding to provide you with your own, on-line account, much like what you can have with your bank for financial institution, which would allow you easily to see the status of your return and to communicate with us electronically in a secure manner about any issue that has arisen.
I wish there was more we could do for you today.
All the best.
John KoskinenFebruary 18, 2015 at 8:17 pm #4107874
Agreed this is absolutely crazy and ridiculous! I have emailed the irs commissioner and of course he responded with a bunch of bs. I have tried to call the irs this week and the phone are so clogged that I can’t even wait on hold. We deserve answers to why this is happeningFebruary 18, 2015 at 3:27 pm #4107812
It’s Wednesday, 2/18 and still NOTHING. I had hoped to find my refund DD on Saturday or Tuesday, but BUPKIS. NO letter. NO transcripts. NO orange status bar. NO updates whatsoever! This is so incredibly frustrating. At this rate, it appears we’ve been sent to the back of the line because of system errors ON THEIR PART.
I am FURIOUS.February 14, 2015 at 9:59 pm #4107134
Thanks so much for updating us! But in all honesty, you hadn’t waited 21 days, though it was close. It was 18 days. IRS didn’t begin accepting filings until 1/20.
For me, having filed 1/23 and accepted 1/23, I’m still waiting for the 2014 transcripts to even post and a change on the WMR. Still stuck at no orange bar (had disappeared on Monday, 1/9, never to return but it never moved before that), no change in the processing stage, and still stuck with the vague “will let you know when a refund date is available”.
UGH.February 14, 2015 at 6:40 pm #4107121
Just had to post with regard to insane conversations:
I was accepted 1/20 and have been sitting at 570/971 for a while and no bars. Anyway I called yesterday for a TA. The gentleman (pfft) I explained my situation to him and his response was:
“Why do you need your refund?”
I wanted to ask him if that was a real question, but instead I decided to play along and respond with the fact we needed it to pay our bills (I was more specific, but don’t want to say here).
“Why can’t you pay those bills without your refund?”
Again I wanted to reach through the phone and smack him, but I calmly replied that we were counting on our refund. He proceeded to transfer me to the IRS main line.
I called back later and got another person who assigned a TA. Unfortunately they won’t call me til the end of next week.February 14, 2015 at 4:05 pm #4107101
Im one of those that just disappeared.
Still no bars or transcripts by 2/3,called IRS, was informed refund would be released 2/6
Got 2 bars on 2/5
Got 3 bars on 2/6 and refund was deposited that very morning after 8am.
Had EIC and Education credits.
I have a feeling that the IRS is using a new algorithm to categorize tax refund files. Going forth, Im making sure that I do the highest exemptions possible so we don’t have to worry about a tax refund anymore.February 14, 2015 at 3:24 pm #4107097
1/20er here. I finally woke up to 2 bars and a ddd today. 2/19/15February 14, 2015 at 10:30 am #4107035
Look at the taxpayers bill of rights. It states we have the right to question the processes and obtain our account information. We also have the right to speak to a supervisor.February 13, 2015 at 11:48 pm #4106948
The IRS is VERY good at making up BS excuses. They always have been. It’s as if we have no right questioning them when it comes to our refunds. They don’t owe us an explanation regarding our money. That’s why questions never get answered or resolved.February 13, 2015 at 10:54 pm #4106940
JL1975…today the 13th of February was my 21 days. Filed 1/23 and accepted 1/23. Already received my State refund but since Monday, WMR bar disappeared and now it only reads it’s still processing and I’ll be given a date when available.
I now read that as an early filer (e-file), I’m in the group that the IRS has set aside as they worked on other people’s refunds. This is unfair and unacceptable. It’s like going to a nightclub early, standing in line, everything is fine, then the bouncer takes me out of the line and sets me aside as he allows those who came after me into the club.
The system error is most likely another b.s. excuse since they’re getting creative with b.s. excusing, according to what I read here.
I’m so frustrated! I have never had to wait this long for our refund! I can only hope it will be there tomorrow (Sat 2/14/20215) or Tuesday (2/17/2015 since Monday is President’s Day). Two holidays this weekend, Valentine’s and President’s Day and the IRS decides not play around. Ugh!
It would also be nice if people also posted when they received their refund and not just disappear into the ether. That would be helpful to those who are still waiting.February 13, 2015 at 5:33 pm #4106878
No, my caseworker is located in PA, but the conversation I had was through the Advocate’s main number.
Insanity is the best word to describe it. Dealing with government agencies is like being the only sane person in a mental ward.February 13, 2015 at 4:43 pm #4106854
I’m going jl…while I am so sorry you had to suffer through that insane conversatio, it was very hilarious. these agents can do a comedy show. I pray I do not have that insane conversatin next when my caseWorker calls. Is your caseworker located in Utah by chance?February 13, 2015 at 4:15 pm #4106846
The Taxpayer Advocate told me I’d be receiving a call today from a case worker, Friday 2/13. When I didn’t receive a call by 3:30 PM, I called the Advocate to find out why I hadn’t received a call. I was told, “Case workers are only available Monday through Thursday.” Then why tell me I’d receive a call on Friday from one?
They told me they found out it is, indeed, an IRS system error… Then told me I need to mail my 1040 form (which the rep even said she was looking at on the computer screen), and that it should take, “2-4 weeks to straighten out,” after they receive the copies I mail them. That’s the SAME amount of time the IRS said they needed, WITHOUT me sending any further copies of my 1040 to them.
I asked why I needed to print and send the exact same thing they already had, and was just told, “We need that.” Common sense = They’re looking at it, why do they need a second copy? I said I’d send it right away, if they could just tell me where to send it. “Oh, no, sir. We’ll be sending out a letter telling you where to send it to. You have to wait until you receive that letter.” WHAT?
OK… “All I want to do is get this taken care of as quickly as possible.”
“Please hold, I’ll transfer you.”
Completely different story. “It’s a system error, and we’re doing everything we can to get it taken care of as quickly as possible… No, why would you think you had to send us a copy of your 1040?… Let me transfer you.”
“I’m sorry, sir, but case workers are only available Monday though Thursday… Call this number…”
“Whose number is that?”
“The case worker assigned to you.”
“But, I thought you said case workers weren’t in on Fridays?”
“That’s correct, sir.”
“Then what good is that going to do me?”
“Is there anything else I can assist you with today?”
“You haven’t assisted me with anything today.”February 13, 2015 at 12:11 pm #4106768
Kim, John, Buck, Ebony, JL1975, all – please DO update.
I have no bars, still being processed, N/A on top 2 transcripts. Will finally call today but fear I will hear the 8-16 weeks line too.
Once I learn anything I’ll update here, but after that probably wont be on until another actual development. I get angry every day and since I cant really help anyone else, I need to step away from this until something happens to update.
Thanks for all your input everyone!February 13, 2015 at 10:05 am #4106708
Just got off the phone with the IRS. I called on the 10th and was told that I had to wait one more day (21 days from acceptance). I waited until today and the lady says there are notes on my account and asked me what my conversation was with the previous person I spoke with. I told her he just told me to call back. She stated that there are notes that say he informed me that my return is under review and I will have to wait 8-16 Weeks!!! They do not need any information at this point and will let me know if they do by mail. She also asked me if I had filed my 2013 return! WTF is going on????February 13, 2015 at 9:53 am #4106702
I finally this morning I have a transcript now with cycle code 20150605 and code 846. But WMR still shows no bar.not sure if the WMR will update. Anyone else with the same issue.February 13, 2015 at 9:20 am #4106685
No update for me, been waiting impatiently for any kind of movement. I guess that I will be getting some kind of “letter.” That 570 date 2-16-2015 and 971 date 2-23-2015 are really bothering me. Called yesterday, given the line of under review, will send out letter on the 23 and then it’s 45-60 days from then.February 13, 2015 at 9:09 am #4106679
FINALLY I have my updated transcripts, with an 846 code for cycle 20150605. WMR still has no bars. Anyone else seeing any progress?February 13, 2015 at 7:36 am #4106632
Hey guys and gals filed 1/20 received a
4464c letter they informed me I’m under review I just don’t understand why only thing different I did was have another child could this be why ? affordable care act also has me held up with a 155 $$ penalty say ing my son who was born in Sept didn’t have health insurance and he did what else could it be my income is the same as last yearFebruary 13, 2015 at 4:01 am #4106583
When I spoke to a rep at the IRS on Thurs. 2/12, I was told that my refund was the subject of an “IRS system error”, along with “many others”.
I was then told that the IRS transferred it to another department that handles system errors, so as to keep others from getting backed up, and that they’ll start to look at it 15 DAYS AFTER THEY GET IT, but they don’t send it until you hit your 21st day. WTF? Anyway, the rep said, “Just wait another 3-4 weeks, then call us back. We SHOULD have a refund date for you by then.” I told them that was entirely unacceptable. Due to their error, I have to wait.
I already have a call into the Tax Advocate, but I called again and informed them as to what I’d been told by the IRS. They said I’d receive a call back on Fri, 2/13, and they had to look into it.
I filed 1/15, accepted 1/21, nothing has changed as far as my name, address, etc. Even my refund amount is fairly consistent with previous years. There is NOTHING, except the IRS’s “system error” holding up my refund. Hopefully, the Tax Advocate can get things moving along a bit. I desperately need my refund.February 12, 2015 at 6:52 pm #4106452
It would be helpful to hopeful people if you could add a little more to your post. What do you know about filing “before 1-23” that we don’t – in your knowledge does that include 1-23 and if not what is the significance of that date please? (I realize cycles started on January 8 is how you came up with that cycle date for 2-13, and the 23rd was on a Friday) but it doesn’t explain much about what’s really going on – where are the transcripts, why are more than 21 days passing when in the past it has always been 10 or less. Do you have inside intel?
We appreciate anything you can tell us. And I’d suggest others take whatever is said on a forum with a grain of salt if it isn’t backed up by verifiable facts. More than 95% of what I’ve read on here (except from Bart D) has been dead wrong this time around. No offense Douglas, just looking for facts. Thanks!February 12, 2015 at 3:34 pm #4106389
please see my post that i made today and tell me if what you said might apply to me ?February 12, 2015 at 3:24 pm #4106381
hey i need help guys.. Ok so i filed on the 20th and have nothing .. i can view all transcripts and im really confused.
so on my tax return transcript it has a cycle code of 20150602
i have no refund. puzzled yes and under the remittance it says 0.00 but it has all my information correctly it also has a recieved date of april,15.
on my account transcript it says (any minus- shows a significant credit amount)
Account balance : -9,707
it also says code 150 and cycle 20150206 date 03-02-2015 amount 0.00
anyone else know what this meansFebruary 12, 2015 at 2:48 pm #4106370
I am in the same boat as all of you (filed 01/20, acceptd 01/20). I now have a 570 & 971?!?! Nothing about my taxes has changed in 4 years except obamacare! My cycle is listed as : 20150404 but evidently that is incorrect…. I am calling the IRS today and I will NEVER file on opening day again!!!!
This is the first year that we REALLY NEED our return and of course this happens!!!February 12, 2015 at 2:20 pm #4106352
@kevin… I got the same spiel from the agent. My return was rejected on 2/5 (I filed and was accepted on 1/16). According to the agent, it will be 6-8 weeks. Ridiculous. No explanation as why it was rejected in the first place.February 12, 2015 at 2:16 pm #4106351
I filed 1/20 accepted 1/22 after being rejected for a wrong birthday? called SS they had correct birthday for my husband so did H&R block IRS seemed to be the only people with incorrect birthday! so the IRS rep told me to file it again with the birthdate they had so I did and accepted 1/22 here we are day 21 WMR has no bars and says its still processing called IRS she said it was just showing it still processing try back in a week! Super frustrated and annoyed by others getting their return and filed WEEKS after me!February 12, 2015 at 10:55 am #4106253
@Douglas. What makes you think we will get updates today or tomorrow? Just curious if you know something we dont. It sure would be a life saver!February 12, 2015 at 10:42 am #4106252
So I filed on 1/20 with HRB and was told irs accepted on 1/20. I have no bars on WMR and it just says “Your refund is being processed…” Last night I created an account and tried to access transcripts. Site told me to call the Identity Theft line. Just spoke to them. They didn’t tell me much. They just said it’s been flagged and under review, but it’s not because of multiple returns. I’m guessing it is because I moved back in November. In between moving I got a PO Box and somehow the IRS has that PO Box address on file. My return is very simple, so I’m not sure why it should be such a hold up. My W2 is from the same company as last year and refund is being deposited into same bank account as last year. Of course I’m making the assumption it’s being reviewed for possible Identity Theft and not other reasons. One weird thing is IRS did tell me they didn’t accpet my refund until 1/22 even though I got an email from HRB saying they accepted it on 1/20. Who knows… I’ve never had issues with getting a refund before. I hope this doesn’t drag out too long.February 12, 2015 at 10:36 am #4106249
filed on January 19th. call the IRS today because I hadn’t heard anything regarding my refund so far. the Where’s My Refund website told me they didn’t have any information and I should wait until after my returns have been submitted. after 48 minutes of being on hold I finally spoke to a human. The woman informed me that the IRS had just received my return yesterday February 10th, and that what most likely had happened was that my refund was submitted and rejected and the tax preparer had just resubmitted it to the IRS. so now the wait continues all over again for meFebruary 11, 2015 at 11:38 pm #4106118
Transcripts became available on Feb 6th. So if you checked before that, you need to check again.
WMR is not accurate (People should know that by now). If you see approved or no bars, and filed before Jan 23. Expect your refund this week or next week.
First batch filers have been delayed and Refunds are just now being released. (Anyone accepted before Jan 23).
If you have Cycle code 20150602 on your transcript, your direct deposit date is 2/13/15.February 11, 2015 at 7:59 pm #4106065
i filed the 21 was accepted the 22 and i have no bars and it says we have received your return and its being processed. i am able to see my transcripts have been able to for a week now but no 846 code at bottom or nothing. hopefully be able to get thru to irs tomorrow and find something outFebruary 11, 2015 at 2:55 pm #4105912
So I filed on the 15th through TT…got accepted on the 16th according to TT. I was on 1 bar on WMR until 2/5 when I lost the bars as well as topic 152
In the meanwhile, I tried order my transcripts on line (got the contact IPSU). I did 2X…2 weeks ago as well as last week. They this would not affect my return ( I had to verify my filing status etc etc)
Call the Tax advocate this week, she stated that I was actually accepted on the 23rd by the IRS. and to give it till Friday.
I called the IRS today…finally spoke to a nice woman who looked through my account. Asked me question about my 2012 (weird since I got that on time with no issues)..I verified the information for that.
She continued to look…the outcome…………….I am under manual review due to concerns about identity theft. (I never filed this….or complained about it). Then I remembered in 2013 about the Target credit card and customer account breach. I asked her if action on the part of Target reporting to credit bureaus about that breach( I I have a target credit card) would affect it. She said most likely.
The best..I have to wait up to 8 weeks (April 10th ) to see if I receive a letter, notice or refund. If nothing, call them again. While I am happy that I got an answer, I am so sad that I am in this position.February 11, 2015 at 7:21 am #4105805
Whats the number to verify identityFebruary 10, 2015 at 10:47 pm #4105633
Any of you guys see deposits yet?…..just being hopeful for everyone.February 10, 2015 at 8:55 pm #4105571
@spikevironata they gave me a case number and said they’d call ThursdayFebruary 10, 2015 at 8:26 pm #4105555
@annoyed You are getting different answers because they are not supposed to tell us about re sequencing or the overload of early filers, the IRS manual tells them to tell you that you are in review and it could be 6-8 weeks. Pretty much all of the codes they run into for re sequencing will make them give this answer, you are just getting two different flavors. If the TA didn’t give you a case number or assign to you, then you are most likely not being reviewed.February 10, 2015 at 8:15 pm #4105549
Spoke to tax advocate and they said I’m being reviewed because of identity theft but IRS identity theft line said I was being reviewed because of my income so I’m confused until the advocate calls me back on ThursdayFebruary 10, 2015 at 3:48 pm #4105382
I called and spoke to a Tax Advocate today. I was told the IRS had my return coded for “correction”, and the advocate told me she didn’t understand why. She said most “corrections” are people who did not have a form associated with their returns for one of the deductions, but my return had that form. She transferred me to another advocate who said they’d be investigating the “correction” and I will hear back from them on Friday, 2/13.
This is ridiculous. I have never gotten so much of a run around from the IRS, even when I got divorced and my ex tried filing taxes in my name.February 10, 2015 at 1:27 pm #4105307
So I filed and was accepted on 01/16, Ive come to terms that I probably wasn’t really accepted that date. Ive been able to view my transcripts, and I mean all of them for almost two weeks. No 0’s, no bad codes, everything just ends in my credits. and also no offsets. Yet a week ago I lost my bars, and it just states im processing, no topic code or anything, but can still see my amount off to the side. My cycle date was for a ddd of 02/06/2015 if that’s all true, but never had and still dont have an 846 refund issued code. Is anyone still in the same boat and have any insight, my cycle processing end date is 02/16/05, and again I show no codes that are negative on WMR on transcripts and have not received any letters. I know alot of people are talking about how they see all 0’s on there transcripts, yet I can see everything……..Help! LOL Tell me Im not alone and any info on a similar situation would be great…. Thanks in advance
Also I would call the IRS but I work literally 6 days a week, and dont have hours to sit on hold. Im trying to ride it out and be as impatiently patient as I can….hahaFebruary 10, 2015 at 1:21 pm #4105301
HAPPY DAY 21 my fellow 1/20ers!! Has anyone called up the IRS yet?February 10, 2015 at 6:41 am #4105024
So my husband filed with Liberty Tax in Ny he filed on January 15th we were accepted the 21st and now we have no bars and that same statement everyone else is seeing :( Your return is being processed we will give u a refund date when one is available :( we are coming up on our 21 days and I am freaking but I see a lot of other early filers have been having the same issues as me so I’m just hoping for an update this week :) keeping my fingers crossed there’s not a problemFebruary 10, 2015 at 4:49 am #4104996
WMR: “We have received your tax return and it is being processed”
Transcript codes: 806/766
Update: I called 1 (877) 777-4778 (option 1) yester 2/9/15. A guy advised my that I would be getting a manual refund due to my bankruptcy. Also, that my file had just been updated to reflect a refund being processed that morning and to call back later in the week to confirm refund issue date.February 10, 2015 at 1:31 am #4104973
I filed using TT on 1/20 was accepted that day. Had 1 bar for about a week. Ever since I’ve had no bars no codes and transcripts not available. Today is 21 days. Guess I’ll be calling. Super frustrating!February 10, 2015 at 12:01 am #4104948
“Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.”
Started getting the EXACT same message over the weekend, no status, no code.
Transcript page no longer allows me to sign in.February 9, 2015 at 11:35 pm #4104937
Filed 01/16, accepted 01/20; but now no bars and the message: “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.”
I know that it hasn’t been the full 21 days yet, but its frustrating knowing that there are folks who are getting their refund in a week or less. Just gotta be patient though I guess.February 9, 2015 at 11:09 pm #4104928
i filed 1/17, accepted 1/20. Used TT. Bars went missing this weekend, transcripts say N/A.. Tax topic went from 152 to nothing… I’m beyond annoyed. I just want to see some progress :(February 9, 2015 at 10:45 pm #4104920
Exact same situation with me. File 1/15, accepted 1/21. Nothing since. Over weekend, got the same message you got, also transcript page says “unauthorized”. By what I’ve read, that means that something (even something as minor as you typed St., but your return says Street), so they won’t allow you access. Only the IRS!
I’m reading a lot where people are saying it’s because of a “Dead Cycle” that is SUPPOSEDLY being processed by this Wed (2/11).
Early filers got screwed this year.February 9, 2015 at 10:30 pm #4104913
F&W, same situation but filed/accepted 1/22, no bars, transcripts N/A.February 9, 2015 at 10:27 pm #4104910
I got the EXACT same thing. No idea what’s going on.February 9, 2015 at 10:07 pm #4104892
Frustrated and WaitingParticipant
I filed on the 20th accepted the same day. I lost my bar on WMR over the weekend. Now it says return is still being processed, a refund date will be provided when it is available. However the tt152 is gone away, but I still have my amount on the bottom. There are no tax topics at all now. Anyone else have this happen?February 9, 2015 at 9:19 pm #4104875
I am still waiting:( I filed 1/17 and was accepted 1/20. WMR shows no bars and still don’t have my 2014 transcripts. Not going to lie this is kinda stressful!February 9, 2015 at 8:54 pm #4104871
Yup! Still no bars still processing, n/a on top 2 transcripts, and 0 on account transcript saying as of feb 16. This is so stressful!February 9, 2015 at 8:38 pm #4104868
Any 1/20ers still waiting with me?!?February 6, 2015 at 7:01 pm #4103571
Finally! After being stuck with no bars and no transcripts for the past week when my 1 bar disappeared, I finally decided to call the number on WMR that said mention code 9001 and choose extension 362. I waited forever and talked to a lady who told me my refund was being held up do to idverify and said call the number to verify my address. I did that and after a long wait a nice lady came back on the line and said my refund is released and everythings done. I was so excited I thanked her and didn’t think to ask how long the direct deposit would take, but at least I know its coming for sure. Does anyone know how long it takes after your refund is released?February 6, 2015 at 3:34 pm #4103483
I’m still seeing no progress! Accepted 1/20February 6, 2015 at 3:25 pm #4103475
@Connie, you posted that the IRS called you……I am putting this in all caps to emphasize the importance……..THE IRS NEVER, AND I REPEAT NEVER CALLS YOU OUT THE BLUE OR SENDS YOU AN EMAIL. THEY ONLY COMMUNICATE BY MAIL OR IF YOU CALL THEM. PLEASE DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS SCAM. THESE SCAMMERS HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN MANY PEOPLE TO PAY OVER THE PHONE THIS YEAR. IT IS EVEN ON THE IRS WEBSITE THAT IT IS A SCAM. DO NOT FALL FOR IT AND HANG UP YOUR PHONE IMMEDIATELY.February 6, 2015 at 3:16 pm #4103468
DDD on WMR says sent 2/4 but transcript reads 2/16
DDD on WMR says sent 2/4 but transcript reads 2/16. Still no refund and hoping to have had it by now. Will I have to wait til 16th now?February 6, 2015 at 3:15 pm #4103466
DDD on WMR says sent 2/4 but transcript reads 2/16
My DDD on WMR says sent 2/4 but my transcript says 2/16.. Anyone else? I still didn’t get my refund and was hoping to have it by now. Why would WMR says 2/4 and then I still don’t get it?February 6, 2015 at 2:44 pm #4103444
Just FYI, my transcripts just updated a few minutes ago.
I now have the 571/842! Cycle code still 20150402. Not sure when my money will be deposited but i’m hoping no later than Tuesday!
Good luck everyone.
Accepted 1/20February 6, 2015 at 2:24 pm #4103427
I GOT MY TRANSCRIPTS!!!!!!!!!!
I just wanna run around screaming OMG OMG!
Cycle 20150505. Will I get my money Tuesday?February 6, 2015 at 1:58 pm #4103406
Oh my flippity FLIP FLIP FLIP! So I was accepted 1/20, no bars, no transcripts, yada yada yada… Well, after not being able to view ANY of my transcripts all morning due to “technical difficulties” (per the IRS website), I was just now able to get in and ALL my transcripts for 2014 are now available and complete. No zeros. I haven’t checked WMR yet, but woooooo! Finally!February 6, 2015 at 12:40 pm #4103354
Tax Advocate # is 1-877-777-4778. You will have to press 1 that you haven’t resolved your issue with the IRS or that you are having a financial hardship otherwise you won’t get to talk to anyone. I told them the IRS wouldn’t give me a straight answer and that I had a disconnect notice from my electric company for 2/13/15 (which sadly is true).February 6, 2015 at 12:28 pm #4103343
Anyone get a 971 with their 570 code that updated to 846? I havent gotten a letter and obviously IRS wont talk to me!!February 6, 2015 at 12:17 pm #4103333
How do I get ahold of a tax advocate? I was accepted 1/20 and still no DDD and cant order transcripts…February 6, 2015 at 11:19 am #4103274
Anyone else still have NA for their 2015 transcripts? I filed on 1/20.February 6, 2015 at 11:11 am #4103266
IT’S OFFICIAL! After talking to tax advocate and getting the DDD I checked my transcript and sure enough i had code 571 (additional account action completed) and the GLORIOUS 846 (Refund Issued)!!! So unbelievably relieved right now!!!February 6, 2015 at 10:52 am #4103249
I filed the 15th on TaxAct, accepted 20th with 896/570 codes on my transcript. I called tax advocate this morning and got through pretty quick and the lady told me my return was released and was scheduled for deposit on 2/11/15. WOOHOO!!! Hope this calms folks down a bit!February 6, 2015 at 10:15 am #4103208
Sooo there’s hope! I spoke to a very kind lady at the irs this morning who actually looked at my account I did slightly alter the truth by telling her I was accepted on the 16th when it was actually the 20th but she did it so she tells me that she can see that it had been approved and I have a direct deposit date of 02/11 I asked if she thought that wmr was not updating because it still says processing on my end but she said most likely it was approved this morning so it would not show till tomorrow morning. Hopefully everyone will wake up tomorrow with progress on wmr!February 6, 2015 at 9:45 am #4103169
As of this morning I still have nothing. No transcripts except the wage report. I can’t get ahold of anyone at the IRS and I am freaking out at this point.February 6, 2015 at 9:44 am #4103167
Does anyone know what the “as of” date is on account transcript? I can view it but it is blank except for a date that says “As of February 23rd”. It said “AS of February 16th” until this morning, now it’s pushed back a week???
My details: Filed 1/16, accepted 1/20 thru TT. 1 Bar, blank transcripts.February 6, 2015 at 9:27 am #4103143
@JD mine also has an offset and i spoke to someone at the IRS yesterday and she said it would take the full 21 days for them to process mine. Not the news i wanted to hear. The offset is only a tiny portion of my refund, i want the rest lol.February 6, 2015 at 7:58 am #4103035
Last year I had to wait the full 21 days because I had a offset I also have one this year and I filed on 1-20-15 and I’m still waiting I figure I will wait till feb 10 which is my 21 days anyone know about tjisFebruary 6, 2015 at 7:35 am #4103012
Please try to be patient. IRS efile exactly started on 1/6/15 and didnt accept until 1/20/15 it doesnt matter when you file because there was thousands of taxpayers that filed between 1/6/15 and 1/20/15 acceptance date, there is no penalty ot hunting down of early filers. Tax payers can file their taxes as early as they like. I find the accusations of people being targeted for filing early hilarious. Your refund will come. I filed on 1/7/15 got accepted on 1/15/15 got ddd of 2/4/15 in there exactly on date. No problems. The stress comes when you need and want the money fast but it takes time. God bless and be patient.February 6, 2015 at 7:29 am #4103006
All of my 2014 transcripts are now available but showing no cycle date. WMR still says refund date will post when available. :(February 6, 2015 at 6:28 am #4102944
Transcripts just updated for me and alot of other ppl 20150505 code for me hoping wmr updates soon anyone know what date that should beFebruary 5, 2015 at 2:02 pm #4102522
no, I didn’t do ACA. The only ones I did was EIC and EducationFebruary 5, 2015 at 1:18 pm #4102500
I called the IRS this morning and was told to expect an update tonight or on Monday. Idk what to think anymore. It’s stressful. Hopefully at least our transcripts will update so we can see some sort of movement.February 5, 2015 at 1:10 pm #4102495
@periwinkle: Did you have ACA/have to fax form 8960/1095-A?February 5, 2015 at 12:43 pm #4102478
I had EIC credit…the bars FINALLY moved and I will get refund this week.
However, because of this fiasco I will NEVER file early again. Neither will I e-file ever again. Im only filing on the very last day of tax season, to guarantee myself a low dif score.
Last year, I got my refund within 1 week of filing. Now, I’m right at 21 day marker.
Whats next? 45 or 60 day wait for refund next year?
Too much suspicion with early filers for my comfort.February 5, 2015 at 11:15 am #4102397
In the Last 2 years my cycle date was 20130605 and 20140605 If this chart is correct they will not process my refund until 02/11. http://www.irs.gov/irm/part3/irm_03-030-123r-cont03.html#d0e14510February 5, 2015 at 10:55 am #4102381
Do you guys have the ACA credit? EITC?
Only difference this year vs last year is ACA and +1 additional dependent but the actual refund amount is lower due to more wages.
@Jade: I’m the same as you, I can only order them via mail, and 2014 says not available. It’s actually quite funny since the names/ss#/address is the EXACT same as this year but like you, online registration locks me out.February 5, 2015 at 10:42 am #4102368
I’m in the same boat I filed on the 1/21 I have one bar and it still says processing. I cant access my Transcripts because each time I try on line I get an registration error message and of course if you keep trying and and you get the same message it locks you out for 24 hours after your third try. I tried over the phone and it tells my my 2014 transcripts are not available. last year I had the cycle date of 20140605 then 20130605 the year before that . But in 20120501 I had a different cycle date. So i don’t know how are when we get different cycle dates but if I go by my previous cycle dates I wont see my refund until 2/20February 5, 2015 at 8:59 am #4102268
Still nothing for me filed 19th accepted 20th before 11… no trans no dd nothing..February 5, 2015 at 8:55 am #4102266
Autumn yes it still says 50 percent have received their refunds. I hope your right I don’t mind waiting for the refund but would like to know what’s going on atleast. It has never taken this long before I filed opening day last year too and received my refund in ten days. Hopefully we will all see some progress soonFebruary 5, 2015 at 8:45 am #4102259
Anyone who filed through tt and was accepted on the 20th does it still say 50% of people who were accepted on the 20th have received their refund? Cause mine has said that since last Friday morning was at 0% before that so my thought is everyone accepted on the 20th ended up with weekly cycles and the other 50% will update tonight? Just a thought I hope its true but I guess we’ll find out in the morning.February 5, 2015 at 6:19 am #4102190
@Hawaii808 and @Andrewfromflorida. I too am in the same boat as you both. I checked the WMR and Account Trans this am, and no change…This is the longest I have waited..I was told by IRS that my return was accepted on 1/23, and is still processing..1 bar on wmr, tt 152, and all 000’s, no cycle number on transcripts just the 2/16 date..February 5, 2015 at 5:51 am #4102174
Just checked this morning and still on one bar on wmr this is getting to be ridiculous I filed 1/20 with turbotax got accepted minutes later checked wmr the next morning and was one first bar so I know I got accepted when tt said I did….Idk what the hold up is my return is simple married filing joint 2 kids I tried to access my transcript the other day I was able to download all of them but unable to view them on my phone so I’m not sure if they are blank or notFebruary 4, 2015 at 11:12 pm #4102057
In the same boat as you, only i have one bar with topic 152. I can view my transcripts. Although they have nothing but 0’s and no cycle date. Only has a date that sys as of 2-16-2015. This is the most stressful tax season ive ever experienced. I called irs and was told that they see my return, but its still processinprocessing. My 21 days will end on next week on the 11th.February 4, 2015 at 9:27 pm #4102019
Anyone else in the same boat? Cant access transcripts, no letter in mail regarding return, no bars and no topic. Only thing I know about my refund is processing. I called in and was told they can see my return but cant say anything regarding it until after 21 days. Filed on the 20th. Will a tax advocate help me speed things along considering I have a wedding coming up?February 4, 2015 at 8:47 pm #4102005
The IRS called me today. The guy asked for then when I confirmed it was me he hung up……..WTF!!! Is this because I ordered my transcripts ,maybe there were verifying my number……. Has this happened to anyone else. Also Im a 20150502 cycle chic….lol DDD 2/6.February 4, 2015 at 8:43 pm #4102001
Examination Refund Hold Projects
A TC 810 or TC 570 indicates refunds are stopped/frozen. TC 810 or TC 570 is used if an examination of the taxpayer’s return is in process or the previous examination was not closed. If the taxpayer does not claim the same items on a subsequent return, the refund will be released in most cases.
Use Audit Information Management System (AIMS) status codes to determine how to respond to the taxpayer. Make sure you are researching AIMS on the tax period that is frozen.
If the refund is held by a TC 810, then a TC 811 will post in the same cycle to release the portion of the refund not related to EITC, Adoption Credit, Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) or the Premium Tax Credit (PTC). Once the Examination process is complete, a second TC 811 will post to release the EITC, Adoption Credit, ACTC, or the PTC portion of the refund, if applicable.
If TXMOD shows a TC 570 or TC 810 with open AIMS information, follow procedures below:
If And Then
The refund was stopped with TC 570 or TC 810 It has not been more than 30 days since the refund has been stopped Advise the taxpayer that he/she will be contacted within 30 days from date the refund was stopped. Do not prepare Form 4442, Inquiry Referral. Do not refer the calls to Campus Examination.
The refund was stopped with TC 570 or TC 810 It has been more than 30 days since the refund was stopped Refer to Exhibit 21.5.10-2, AIMS Status Code Guide Correspondence Exam.
Check TXMOD for the second TC 811 and follow the procedures below:
If And Then
A second TC 811 is pending or posted in the applicable tax module No TC 846 (for the frozen portion of the overpayment) is present and less than 30 days from the input of the second TC 811 Advise the taxpayer to expect a refund within 4 weeks.
A second TC 811 is pending or posted in the applicable tax module No TC 846 (for the frozen portion of the overpayment) is present and more than 30 days from the input of the second TC 811 Refer to Exhibit 21.5.10-2, AIMS Status Code Guide Correspondence Exam.
A second TC 811 is not present or is unpostable in the applicable tax module, and one of the previous two year’s modules are in AIMS control status 54, 55, or 57 The taxpayer has not received a response Refer to Exhibit 21.5.10-2, AIMS Status Code Guide Correspondence Exam.
A second TC 811 is not present AIMS control status is 90 Refer to Exhibit 21.5.10-2, AIMS Status Code Guide Correspondence Exam.February 4, 2015 at 7:32 pm #4101954
I still can’t view my transcripts except wage & income. Is this bad? (WMR bars & amount gone since yesterday morning)February 4, 2015 at 7:06 pm #4101948
@Jason I read somewhere that ppl with the 0502 cycle code would be getting a DDD of 2/06. So maybe you’ll get that DDD but WMR just isn’t updating properly or something. Hope it happens for you though.February 4, 2015 at 6:59 pm #4101941
I have tried to figure out whats going on with my taxes by going through everyones posts and looking up codes. I have been doing my own taxes for years and usually have my dd within 2 weeks but I have never been an early filer before. This year I filed on 01/19 was accepted and approved on 01/20. My WMR pizza tracker bars disappeared and it just says processing with code 152. I was FINALLY able to pull all 4 of my 2014 transcripts last Wednesday on 01/28, but still no progress on WMR. My cycle code is 20150405. I do have a code 570 but that is the only code that is different from the last few years. I called the IRS today and of course they are no help, they said they couldn’t even look into it until 21 days has passed. Any suggestions??? Any clue when I’ll get my refund?February 4, 2015 at 5:07 pm #4101873
@damon 1800-829-0582 ext632February 4, 2015 at 4:12 pm #4101844
I would like to know what number you’re calling to talk to a live person at the IRS? i couldn’t find one. i too have been waiting since the 20th. There is going to be an offset on mine though but not for the full amount. I can’t get a clear answer on how long these things take… If anyone knows anything about this, that would be very helpful. ThanksFebruary 4, 2015 at 3:33 pm #4101817
now check this out I field my taxes on the 20th and it was received in minutes now its been 15 days and so I figured I would call the irs this week because I never waited this long to get appoved. so I called Monday the nice lady kindly faxed my account transcripts for 2013 and 2014 she say darling u haven’t even been processed yet. so I looked over my account and It said in account status re-sequenced. so I’m like wtf is that? s I called Tuesday and was like sir I am having hardship and I need my refund why am in that status? and he said the system kicked me out and I was put back in but look like nothing is wrong we received your return on the 22nd so I’m like ok. so after no update again I said wtf why not see what’ s going on. so I just got off with another nice lady and she was like you haven’t even been processed yet and your return just got in the system on the 30th wtf? I m so confused how and the he** this happen? is anyone going through this or is irs fu**ing with me talking about it only been” 5 days” like he**!February 4, 2015 at 2:42 pm #4101776
I talked to the irs this morning I was told that the aca is holding up accounts they send it from one system to another and it can take up to 4 days for the system to catch up so if you had to pay that from your return that is why some of us are still waiting I was also told in my case that the hold should end today and update over night so for those of us that are in day 15 or longer that could change over night. I do not know how correct he was but instead of putting me on hold he stayed on the line while he researched so I do think he was telling me accurate informationFebruary 4, 2015 at 1:22 pm #4101707
@stacy, at this point, codes mean nothing. You’re under review.
OOC, what’s your filing type? any odd credits? ACA? Lots of EITC?February 4, 2015 at 1:18 pm #4101704
I called the irs an was told I ws under review an when I got my notice letter it said I didnt need to do anything just wait 45 days if my money hhasn’t came by then to call.back. I looked at my prior year transcripts an the. Codes for cycle end in 02 an 03 what does this mean will I still. Get my recundFebruary 4, 2015 at 1:17 pm #4101702
@macygray: If we’re always weekly, and we’re 04/05’s and we don’t see anything tonight/tomorrow, I guess we can all assume we’ll be hitting that 21-day “magic number” to where IRS agents can actually “help”, eh? Personally, I’m already going with the intention that 6 more days and I’ll be on the phone, yet again, HOPEFULLY actually getting answers.
I don’t think we’ve ever been over the 2 week mark before we seen any sort of update, so we shall see what tonight/tomorrow holds.February 4, 2015 at 12:28 pm #4101659
footballfam, I’m hoping Tomorrow night? I think 04s are tonight. If they are, then I’m hoping for tomorrow. Not sure why we missed last weeks batch of 05s.February 4, 2015 at 12:22 pm #4101652
To get transcript go to home page of IRS and there’s a link. Cycle code can be found on old transcripts under “cycle code.”February 4, 2015 at 12:11 pm #4101645
It was today. Here is the link:
I did ask the person where they got that info. Hopefully it’s reliable/legit.February 4, 2015 at 12:03 pm #4101635
“If it is 201501, 201502, 201503 then you are on a dead cycle. This means you will be re-sequenced and processed during 201504 (today is the last day of this cycle)”
WHEN is the last day of the cycle? You don’t say when the original post was posted.February 4, 2015 at 11:49 am #4101611
05 the last few years for me as well!! When will we see some movement? I’m starting to panic!February 4, 2015 at 11:47 am #4101608
Got this from another thread:
Before you panic about reviews, etc. Check your submission/confirmation code on the website you filed with, or paperwork from you tax rep. In the middle it should have 2015 and another number after it. If it is 201501, 201502, 201503 then you are on a dead cycle. This means you will be re-sequenced and processed during 201504 (today is the last day of this cycle) so you SHOULD see updates sometime between tomorrow and Sunday. If you don’t see something by Sunday then you should call and ask about it. Also, if you look back at your old transcripts and see 05 at the end of your cycle date (example: 20140705) that is an indication that you are on a weekly update. This is what is happening to me and several others as well. Try not to panic just yet and give it a few days. Hope this helps :-)”
I checked my acceptance email and sure enough, mine is 201502.February 4, 2015 at 11:35 am #4101598
Also, I saw someone post in another thread that they update on Wednesdays. Hoping for some movement tonight/tomorrow morning!February 4, 2015 at 11:34 am #4101595
@macygray Yes I have been 05 since 2011.February 4, 2015 at 9:19 am #4101453
I filed 1/22 and nothing so far.. I looked and have been 05 for the last two years.. What is the guess for when I will see something?February 4, 2015 at 9:15 am #4101451
Where is everyone seeing the bars and cycle codes. And how do I view my transcript??February 4, 2015 at 7:52 am #4101382
1/20’er here. It’s official: The grapevine is right. The IRS is lying about transcripts. They CAN be used to determine when you will get your refund.
I just got my second bar and a 2/6 DDD. That is exactly what everyone said I would get based on my cycle code and 846 code.February 4, 2015 at 7:49 am #4101381
I’m wondering if some of us are cycle 5s who didn’t make the cutoff last week in time. I’ve had a cycle ending in 05 for the last few years. Anyone else on here have cycle number ending in 05 on transcripts for last few years? If so, maybe we’ll hear something by Friday? I don’t know. I’m trying to hold on to some hope here!February 4, 2015 at 7:41 am #4101375
When you call, do not follow prompts for your refund. The minute you do that, it puts you in an automated system immediately. I’m pretty sure I pressed two.February 4, 2015 at 7:40 am #4101374
When you call the make sure it’s the one ending in 1040 I think it’s 1-800-829-1040 follow the prompts to check your tax bill. (They will take the call to give a final payoff amount for you) the system will have you put in your info after that it will tell you to hold and the wait could be 30-60 mins but if you are “calling to see if you owe them” you’ll get to a live person. When in prompt DONT choose the option for the status of your tax return!!! Choose opinion for your tax account and then what the amount of your bill will be or to find out what’s the payoff amount :) hope this helps. I did this and got through each time I needed to talk to a human!February 4, 2015 at 7:22 am #4101364
Sad face :(
I was excepted on 1/16 according to tax act, but when I called IRS yesterday they did actually accepted on 1/21! Still NO TRANSCRIPTS except the blank ones and no updates!!?? This is nuts.February 4, 2015 at 7:11 am #4101347
Can someone please tell the steps to speaking to a live person when calling to number you ask provided it keeps taking me through an automated system.February 3, 2015 at 11:10 pm #4101103
Be sure to send in Form 8962 for the healthcare. I was accepted on 1/12 and I know I’ve been waiting since the 20th. Bars on WMR disappeared 1/26 and transcripts N/A. Finally spoke with someone yesterday that helped me and they informed me that they didn’t receive my initial form and that’s why I was stuck processing.February 3, 2015 at 11:02 pm #4101088
WMR has not updated fro me yet but my refund just hit my prepaid PayPal card. My cycle date is 20150502 and I filed on 1/16. Hopefully everyone gets the same good news tonight or in the morning!February 3, 2015 at 10:29 pm #4101058
No ACA. I didn’t have insurance through the exchange. Process has been very slow for a lot of us this year, though. It’s stressful, that’s for sureFebruary 3, 2015 at 10:24 pm #4101048
Out of curiosity how many of you guys have ACA credits? I’m really beginning to think that’s what it is.February 3, 2015 at 10:22 pm #4101046
You are not alone, and ladybgirl is right: there are discrepancies for many of us between the accepted date the tax services are telling us vs the dates the IRS are giving us. I know in my case, my tax service said IRS accepted me on 1/20, but IRS told me they did not get my return till the 23rd! I am still waiting as well. I totally understand what you’re going through right now. Just know you are not alone.February 3, 2015 at 10:07 pm #4101027
Anyone Get their Deposit on their Emerald card yet with a DDD of 2/4
From what I have seen on FB you should get your deposit on 2/11.
Seems that everyone who filed as early as you got pushed off and some say the IRS told them they were not actually accepted until 1/21. But a ton of people are saying they have a DDD of 2/11. Hope this helps.February 3, 2015 at 9:45 pm #4101006
Someone help me please!!! I filed on 1/9 and my return was excepted on the 12th. I have been going on the WMR every day and still no DDD. Today was day 21 I’m getting real nervous. I’m supposed to have my deposit for my new place by the 12th I’m trying to get out of my black mold infested apartment. What can I do I’m getting frustrated… PLEASE HELP!!February 3, 2015 at 4:12 pm #4100767
@ Damon, thanks for the info. They wouldn’t tell me why it took so long, so Im glad you talked with someone who told you.
@ Mtomsha It depends. Can you see your tax account transcript? If you can see it for 2014 and there is a cycle date, you should get the refund soon.February 3, 2015 at 3:54 pm #4100752
I talked to the irs I was told that because of the aca that returns are on hold so I called the aca and was told by them that there shouldn’t be any holds the irs just pulls the money you owe from your refund and then send it out
so lets do this anyone that talks and gets any form of information post it and see how many different things they sayFebruary 3, 2015 at 3:33 pm #4100735
on hold with irs how or what do i ask to get some information because i am worried?February 3, 2015 at 3:06 pm #4100717
I got a notice saying im up for review do you think the 2/11 date you gave still applies to meFebruary 3, 2015 at 2:59 pm #4100707
@Periwinkle, I used the free file so I’m not having anything taken out.February 3, 2015 at 2:47 pm #4100700
@1/20 Filer, you were right
cld IRS, spoke to very nice person, said all of us 1/20ers will get our refunds by 2/11. They delayed the early filers for security reasons I cannot say.February 3, 2015 at 2:21 pm #4100679
I paid with credit card each time for tax returns, never had delays. This year was the first I agreed to have tax prep fees taken out of tax refund, now there is a delay. Used TTFebruary 3, 2015 at 2:18 pm #4100678
Did you guys pay for your own tax return with credit card, or did you agree to have the fee taken out by the tax preparer when then tax refund is received?February 3, 2015 at 2:09 pm #4100667
Sooooo they’re just going sit on our returns because we have education credits? Are they calling each and every one of our schools lol? They can’t even answer phone calls in a timely manner let alone call every school. Chalking this year up as a lossFebruary 3, 2015 at 1:56 pm #4100656
Excepted on 2/23 according to tt. Cannot view transcripts, it keeps saying to contact identity dept. Called in automated to order and no transcript for the 2014 taxes available. No bars on wwr only says refund still being processed . A date will de given when available. Getting nervous hereFebruary 3, 2015 at 1:18 pm #4100625
No delay due to the debt, only because of education credits. There is apparently a scam out involving education credits. She did say that I should be completed this week. So I’m hoping what she said has truth behind it. She was a really nice rep and took her time. I was on the phone with her for about 10 minutes.February 3, 2015 at 1:12 pm #4100621
Hawaii– I have a tax debt, too. My 2011 script shows debt paid and my 2014 scripts are good to go. I’m just missing the 846 releasing the remainder of my $$$. Did your rep say delay BC of tax debt, too, or just BC you have edu credits?? I’ve been sitting on full scripts for 10 days and I’m on a daily update cycle!! :(February 3, 2015 at 1:10 pm #4100619
Hey EVERYONE! PER the IRS today. I just spoke to an IRS agent about my return. Super nice guy. He told me that my return had been approved and gave me my DDD. HOWEVER, He noted that the IRS is also sending out audit notices based on the cycle date, beginning Monday. They are planning to audit 25% more returns this year. The first ones to be audited will be those with red flags OR if no red flags, they be drawn from those with ODD cycle numbers….February 3, 2015 at 1:09 pm #4100614
Well something happened this morning….my bars disappeared! “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available” and tax topic 152.
Still no transcripts.
Can someone tell me what this means? Have I been re-sequenced?February 3, 2015 at 1:08 pm #4100613
@Nebraskawoman, thank you!
I have a tax debt from 2011. I called the number on the letter I received about my balance. Just a little history, filed on 1/16 via taxslayer. Accepted on 1/20. WMR has shown me at one bar since 1/21. Was able to view account transcript on 1/26 but it was blank. On 1/30 return transcript was available with 0’s and a date as of 2/16/15. I just called to verify that my balance would be taken from my return and was told that there is a delay because I have education credits and they have to verify them due to that being a scam this year. She did tell me that there is a completion date for early this week, but be prepared to wait the full 21 days which puts me at 2/10. So we will see then. Really hoping an update comes soon for all of us who where accepted on 1/20. This is the first year I have ever had to wait this long for any type of update.February 3, 2015 at 12:55 pm #4100601
Thank you, I’m on the phone with them now and waitingFebruary 3, 2015 at 12:42 pm #4100593
18008291040.. wait to you hear the option about your tax history or payments.. Then pick the option that states you callin in to inquire about the amountFebruary 3, 2015 at 12:33 pm #4100583
So I was able to get on to get my transcripts but it show no refund transcripts for 2014, only wage transcripts that say no return filed. I’m still trying the number but does that mean they haven’t ever gotten my refund yet?
I’m a single mom and honestly I NEED that money……sooner rather than later.February 3, 2015 at 12:20 pm #4100573
I hate to say it but just keep dialing. It took 4 or 5 attempts for me to get through the high call volume stop yesterday then I had an hour wait time when I did get through. Be forewarned though, if you get through, all agents have been thoroughly briefed to not answer any questions about your specific return until 21 days have passed. I managed to get through 3 times over the lat weeks and had 2 agents that wouldn’t help at all (one was downright rude) and only 1 agent who would even look at my return and all she would tell me is that I didn’t have any offsets or owe any money and that my return wasn’t accepted until 1/30, even though hrb had sent me an acceptance notice on 1/21. Be prepared to be as polite and pleasant as possible and tell them you’re concerned about owing $$ even if you aren’t. Some other users here seem to have gotten more info from their calls so I think it’s luck of the draw.February 3, 2015 at 12:10 pm #4100563
@stillnothing You have to call right when they are grabbing their coffee at 7am. I called at 830 and finally got someone. They fill up fast so be earlyFebruary 3, 2015 at 11:59 am #4100552
Everytime I try to call it say that they are unable to answer my call due to extremely high call volume. Any tips? I filed on 1/20, still nothing but one bar on WMR and I can’t even get on to check my transcripts because it says my address is wrong. I’m freaking out a little and worry that something is wrong. It has never taken this long before.February 3, 2015 at 11:52 am #4100548
Just got off the phone with them. I’m a 1/21er and they said they haven’t even processed it yet…I hate the irsFebruary 3, 2015 at 11:48 am #4100543
What number are you all dialing to get a live person? I keep getting nothing but an automated response.February 3, 2015 at 11:37 am #4100535
Ok every one I just got off the phone with the IRS, and my return is on hold due to a 1095-a for the marketplace insurance(which I canceled) so so now I have to wait to receive the letter them fax it in and wait 4 weeks.. Now I’m currently waiting to speak to someone from the marketplace smh this is a night mare.. So if you filed 1/20 and haven’t seen any progress I would call the IRS to make sure that it’s not a problem.February 3, 2015 at 11:03 am #4100498
@mtomsha The IRS lady told me today that they have to check into your wages and W-2 to make sure its correct especially since you have a new place of employment. She told me itll be another 3 weeks then Ill see some money.February 3, 2015 at 11:01 am #4100495
I filed and was accepted the 20th with TT. My transcripts finally updated this morning and have a refund issued code for 2/23. My account transcripts set for exactly one week with all 0’s saying no return on file. I believe my return was re sequenced for whatever reason.February 3, 2015 at 11:00 am #4100493
Hello all, ugh I’m getting impatient & pissed off at the same time.. Ok I filed 1/20 accepted 1/20 still no transcripts, 1 bar on WMR no progress what so ever, only difference from last year is that I moved.. My cycle date last year was 0603.. If the IRS if going by that again that mean the 21 day mark( 2/10) will be passed! I hope they don’t try to re sequence me just to cover there butt! I’m currently waiting to talk to a supervisor so I can try to get some answers!February 3, 2015 at 10:51 am #4100478
hey so i i filed on the 20th an i got a letter the irs stating i was be review and to wait 60 days i called them and got a hold of a real person who really could not help me.i have not changed my name i was unemployed last year and this im employed so im assuming that is the reason for the review. has anyone ever gone through this. i filed thru Turbo Tax like i have for the past 5 years. i just want to figure this all out anyone else getting reviewed? Even though i filed on the 20th the irs stated they did not start processing it until the 22nd of january ive only been able to view my account transcript and it was 1 time. there was no return transcript and on my account transcript it had all 00s so im not sure what to do.. other then wait so if you can provide any insite please include my name in your post or i wont be able to find your response.February 3, 2015 at 10:46 am #4100471
On my transcript it says Refund Issue Date is 2/23/2015……
Also, I my other transcripts from the pervious years total at $0?
What does all of this mean?February 3, 2015 at 10:42 am #4100469
@ladybgirl: TBCH, at this point I truly believe we’ll all be doing exactly that.February 3, 2015 at 10:41 am #4100466
Honestly, I’ve given up hope that I’ll see my refund anytime soon. I think this is the first year I’ve ever had “problems” like this. Filed via JH (probably never will after this year, always used TT) sent 1/20, accepted 1/21, can’t see transcripts for 2014 or even order them. 1 bar on WMR, never disappeared topic 152.February 3, 2015 at 9:48 am #4100415
Thank you BobbieFebruary 3, 2015 at 9:16 am #4100372
Filed 1/20 accepted same day. Still no Return transcript. However, I have been an 05er for the past 3 years (Wednesdays). Since they gave out 20150502 last night (Friday 6th), I’m still optimistic that I will get an update to my transcript this week (by this weekend) with 20150505 which will be next Wednesday 11th. I will be pissed if I don’t, because that means I’ll be 20150605 which is not until Wednesday the 18th!February 3, 2015 at 9:14 am #4100368
Im back from yesterday…lol….. I filled with Taxact. I was accepted on th 20th and this morning I was able to see ALL my transcripts , still all zeros , still giving me the topic 152 code, no bar, and no amount.
Is this a good thing that my transcripts were updated today or lastnight?
Does this mean I will be getting DDD? Plz HELP!!!February 3, 2015 at 9:13 am #4100367
@steven I am certain that the 570 is simply a hold rather than a review because of being amongst early filers and having an ACA credit which has to come from the same place the people with 896 ACA penalties are waiting funds to be transferred to. It’s just a reverse of their situation. Also, 971 is not a request for information. It is a “notice issued” which can mean many things (just like 570 can mean different things because your refund can be held for lots of reasons) In this case it’s most likely that a notice has been mailed to explain the delay considering this is the first year for the ACA stuff and I was in the first group of filers. I’m not going to jump to panic or speculate a negative outcome or nightmare until one presents itself. When you are being reviewed WMR also tends to show a different code which mine is still sitting with the 21 day tt 152 message so I’m confident they are working on it and although there may be a delay, it will get here. I would be much more concerned if I hadn’t been doing my taxes as well as 4-6 other people’s per year since i was 17 (I’m 32 now) A thorough review of my transcript from last year where there was no issues and this years only shows the healthcare items to be different than years past, so if there were to be a review … well then, let them review. On another note… I’m not one to jump to conclusions or panic, but other people are. Be Kind and choose how you word your advice to people and comments because people are scared, struggling, and worried and the internet is riddled with misinformation. The things we say can contribute to panic or be a positive force or comfort even if we don’t know exactly what is going on. I could be completely wrong in how i’m interpreting my return, and maybe i was chosen for a review, and maybe it will be next year before I get my refund…. but considering the variation in the whole tax filing process and everyone’s situation, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything from last year has any likeness to this year when we have such a huge elephant in the room called “Obamacare” that is the common thread for most of these 570 issues. Thank you again for your comment. Hope I helped you better understand my situation though so if someone else is having the same issue perhaps we can not give them a doomsday scenario and instead shed a little light and hope on the situation. Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday :)February 3, 2015 at 9:07 am #4100352
I filed on 1/21 still one bar and no transcripts stuck here in IRS limbo.February 3, 2015 at 8:44 am #4100330
I hate to tell you this but we were reviewed last year and 570 means review. and the other code means awaiting info from you. Also reviews have been extended to 16-20 week timeframes :(February 3, 2015 at 8:39 am #4100325
I woke up to 971 at the bottom of my transcripts too. I filed 20th, accepted the 21st, I have a healthcare credit rather than offset so I never had the 896, instead I overpaid for health insurance but have been sitting with a 570 since last Tuesday and this morning I saw the new 971 code at the bottom which I assume is to explain the delay or whatever. I’ve had no changes or lost bars on wmr, just holding at 1 bar and tt152 and the generic “you should have your refund in 21 days” stuff. cycle is 20150402February 3, 2015 at 8:37 am #4100322
846 Refund issued 2/23/15 good but WTF>>>>>>February 3, 2015 at 8:36 am #4100321
Still no update for me. Accepted 1/20. No transcripts, no DDD. Stuck on one bar still. Grrrrrr.February 3, 2015 at 8:34 am #4100317
my transcripts updated this morn also.waitin for ddd.February 3, 2015 at 8:33 am #4100315
This is super frustrating for me. Only transcripts are account and wage, which say no file returned on wages, and account has 0’s and no file returned also, filed on the 15th, accepted around 20th I’m assuming, one bar on wmr, tax topic 152, and absolutely no updates what so ever! Ugh….
