Can anyone outline what happened after ID Verify?
1. When did WMR update?
2. When was your DDD?

I received a letter which I thought was a audit letter then I lost it so I called was transferred to the exam dept . This lady asked me some questions put me on hold she said she was able to verify some stuff but I still needed to send in my proof of income and something saying my son lives with me .. she said to send it in as soon as possible and she also said they are so far behind that nobody would probably even look at it for a long time probably at least 6 months … how in the world can they be that far behind ??? I kno people who’s been audited and they just did there’s sent their money that they adjusted with a letter . And they can see what ur employer said u made so why are we sending them stuff they already know .. and she told me I could get a letter from a pastor or someone in the community stating my son lived with me .. crazy he’s been with me for 23 yrs and I’ve always claimed him … I just don’t get all this nonsense ….August 18, 2018 at 12:26 am #4249061
Awesome Cait!!!! Congratulations!!!!August 18, 2018 at 12:24 am #4249059
I finally got a date for when my paper check will be sent! Finally some good news especially with the b.s I’ve gone thru. 60day hold, 9week wait and almost another 60day hold. So everyone still waiting have faith and keep checking your WMR :)August 15, 2018 at 2:14 pm #4249035
My 9 weeks is up today how many more days I have left to get my refundAugust 11, 2018 at 10:05 am #4248992
@Marty B yes, the exam department would be after the IVO dept. (integrity and verification), which is where you initially land if you get flagged by either filter stream. If IV thinks something’s shady or not right, they send it to the ID Verification Department. Once they do there thing it goes back to IVO who should either release the funds or if somethings off (wrong amount etc.) they pass it to examination which then can request additional documentation etc. This additional 60 Days crap is so beyond insanity I’ve given up. And sadly, they told me it can still go beyond my “new” 60 Days hold even.August 11, 2018 at 2:13 am #4248988
Spooky, is the exam department different from any of the other departments holding our refunds???? I mean damn my cp05 letter or whatever it was, is an examination also I think???August 10, 2018 at 9:49 am #4248973
Ha ha ha…. as expected when I ID varied with the TPP 6 weeks ago, they never sent the referral to the IVO department. So we wasted yet another 6 weeks and SURPRiSE….. I’m on another 60 day wait now for the exam department to either ask for more info or to release the refund. I’m positive that after October has come and gone I’ll still be waiting, and on yet another 60 day wait. I’ll be filling 2018 with no 2017 Refund in sight. Like this crap isnt hurting the economy ?!?August 8, 2018 at 8:13 pm #4248962
Filed March 2017 for 2016 taxes. Never received any letters or refund. Thought they were held to offset 2015 debt. Filed 2017 taxes in February of 2018. Got a 4883C at the end of February. Called and verified 2017 taxes and asked about 2016 taxes. Was told i need to respond to 4883C from 2016 taxes. They send me verification letter and i verify the first week of March 2018. Tell me to wait 6wks. Call again in April and am told there is a hold on it due to not receiving all W2s. Am told to wait 3wks to see if it is released. Call back May and get told again about Id theft and that i would have to wait until July 16th for it to be released. Call back July 16th and am told that my 9 weeks isnt up until July 31st. Call back again August 1st and am told the same thing about it not being finished verified. Answer all the questions again and am told to wait another 9 weeks. Im beginning to think i need an attorney to claim my refund. Meanwhile i got my 2017 taxes without any issues after the verification.August 3, 2018 at 4:07 pm #4248921
Strangest thing for me. I filed 2016 back in May. I decided to wait on 2017 until after 2016 was finished and resolved because I had a small offeset. I had to ID Verify for 2016 7 weeks ago and I finally decided to file my 2017. My 2017 processed normally and will be deposited Aug 8th wednesday. BUT 2016 is still out there after ID verify over 6 weeks ago. just sitting…. I do not understand that. When I call they tell me “Please allow 9 weeks for processing.” It took 14 days for 2017 and they both have the same dependents and credits.August 2, 2018 at 9:33 pm #4248916

They charge interest when we don’t pay. When do we get interest when they don’t pay?August 1, 2018 at 9:44 am #4248898
I’ve not posted in a while as I’m pretty frustrated, I don’t even bother to check the WMR app anymore, I did just before I posted here and absolutely nothing has changed , nothing new to report.
Best of luck everyone!July 31, 2018 at 1:37 pm #4248887
So I called and waiting for 30 minutes on hold. The guy was really nice and was put on hold again. He said everything looked good and to expect it no later than September 20th.
File on 2/6 and maybe get it on 9/20. Everything was filed correctly.July 28, 2018 at 10:35 am #4248871
Filed 1st week of February, called in March & was told they had sent me an Identity Verification letter, Never recieved letter until 1st week of May, did the thing over the phone & was told it could take up to 9 weeks, July 12 was 9 weeks, still no refund. Called IRS on July 13 and was informed that my identity verification info had never been entered so I had to do it AGAIN… just to be told it could take another 9 weeks, here I sit today July 28th and still says being processed. …. This is ridiculousJuly 27, 2018 at 7:57 pm #4248867
@Marty Any update with you?July 23, 2018 at 6:13 pm #4248817
I filed back in Feb had DD for my taxes that was suppose to hit a week after.. Well since my name wasn’t on my husbands account the DD was sent back. Since then I’ve been on a 45-60 day hold after that was almost over i called to find out i need to do a ID check. Did that and was put on a 9week hold, my time was up on the 21st.. Called today to find out that I’m on another 60day wait (not hold) for the department that’s still holding my money to either release it or send me a letter for more info if needed. Can’t get a break!!July 23, 2018 at 10:35 am #4248797
Hi all! Same issue as well. Filed basic return via Taxact in Feb, got the letter in March, called back on March 19th, and still waiting on a return. Crazy huh?!July 21, 2018 at 11:53 pm #4248774
@Noelle The Federal reserve got on the IRS big time over fraud and bogus returns last year so, unfortunately, what we’re all experiencing is them trying to make up for last year by implementing more filters to cut down on fraud. Problem is, they don’t even have close to enough help to manually review all the returns they have pulled, henceforth the delay, then stall tactics being implemented. Stupid part is most of us could have given them months ago what they need to release the funds, but instead, here we all sit, five and six months later, still being told to “ Just Wait”. Complete and damn joke, and I’m sure it’s not legal, but I still continue to write anyone in both the Congress and Senate I can. Just damn unfair. And of course, none of them in that crappy call center care at all.July 20, 2018 at 6:58 pm #4248755
Wow, I filed mine the 22nd of March. This is crazy!July 20, 2018 at 3:51 pm #4248746
@Noelle: been waiting since March 15th. 60 day review, ID verify in person that they never accepted, ID verify over the phone in June, now week 4 of 9 weeks. No new letters, I guess there sending the money via a snail. Whole damn IRS this year is beyond incredibly insane!July 20, 2018 at 3:47 pm #4248744
*orJuly 20, 2018 at 3:44 pm #4248742
@cass Same situation, filed in March, verified identity in April.. Was told I would receive my refund in 9 weeks from that call, later received a 4464c letter, called IRS was then told to wait 60 days from the day the notice was sent out NOT from the phone call which I was originally told.. So my countdown restarted. 60 days passes and didn’t receive any other letters or any update on transcripts of WMR, called IRS once again and was told nothing had been done to my account ugh! Rep said he’d send out a referral to either be sent another type of letter OR to have my refund released which will take up to another 60 days!! Anyone else still waiting for theirs?June 28, 2018 at 2:30 pm #4248159
Thank you, called today, apparently nothing had been done with our return since the CP05 letter! The lady sent a request to release the funds and we should either hear from them or get our return within 60 days. Back to the waiting game, this is painful!June 28, 2018 at 2:33 am #4248149
Call them a little futher down the thread are step by step.instructions on how to get an actual person I waited the 9 weeks to call after ID verify just to find out they didn’t do it properly in the first place and had to re do it over the phone…back in the waiting phase now for about a week and a half hoping to see my refund soonJune 27, 2018 at 10:00 pm #4248143
Hi, we filed our taxes in March, verified our identity on 4/3/18, the lady we verified with over the phone said we should receive our refund in 6 to 9 weeks. We received a letter on 4/12/18 that our refund is being reviewed and we would have a refund date by 5/24/18 (6 weeks from our verification date). I called the next day to ask what the letter meant and they said it was just verifying that we had done our identity and it went back into processing. We decided to wait the 9 weeks, since she said it could take that long after we didn’t receive anything by the 24th of May. It’s now been 13 weeks since we verified our identity, should I call the IRS to see what’s happening or is this happening to everyone who had to verify their identity? The IRS website doesn’t help and I can’t get anyone on the phone. Thank youJune 23, 2018 at 9:59 am #4248095
Folks as you can see by reading this thread I filed my taxes by mail on March 24th, got I’d verify on 5/1, verified 5/7, waited then June 6th when MANY others got their returns released, I got the CP05 LETTER by mail. They now are holding it until July 18th, unless there’s some other problem or stall tactic. Very sad it really is.June 22, 2018 at 7:11 pm #4248079
I verified 5/8 and said we have received your refund and it’s being processed.. what does that mean? It’s been almost 7 weeks since verification and I filled feb 23. Can someone please helpJune 22, 2018 at 4:50 pm #4248072
It’s been two weeks since I I’d verified in person. The only change I’ve seen is it went from your return is still processing to we have received your return and it’s processing. Hope it doesn’t take much longer. Has anyone got there refund after I’d verifying in person and if so how long did it takeJune 22, 2018 at 1:42 pm #4248065
Verified in person 06.20
Should I be skeptical since the employee just asked me for my id, social, and last year’s tax return?
My journey has just begun.

AhhhhhJune 20, 2018 at 1:05 am #4248031
I did this today…had to Google the instructions because I didn’t check here first lol but apparently the person I did my ID verifiction with didn’t close out my case properly, probably because she never asked me any questions about my previous tax return which they had to do today over the phone. So basically I waited 9 weeks for nothing. But the woman I spoke with today was very kind and helpful and said I should see a DDD in a couple of weeks hopefully no longer than that I just wish they would have sent a letter or something so I would have known. If this happens next year I’m calling after two weeks lol fingers crossed that it’s smooth sailing from hereJune 19, 2018 at 10:38 pm #4248027
Call the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM – 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: “Refund”, or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for “personal income tax” instead.
Then press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.
Then press 3 “for all other questions.”
Then press 2 “for all other questions.”
– When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don’t enter anything.
– After it asks twice, you will get another menu.
Then press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
It should then transfer you to an agentJune 16, 2018 at 12:08 am #4247968
I can never figure out how to get an actual person on the damn phone I’m so frustrated with this automated bull crap I need to talk to a human. Been 9 weeks since ID verification and no updates or lettersJune 15, 2018 at 4:51 pm #4247962
On the phone with the irs again. Ugh. No letters or anything it’s been 13 weeks since Id verifyJune 14, 2018 at 4:02 pm #4246732
Yea you guys this entire thing sucks huge hairy horse balls! I’m beyond over it and done myself. They owe me thousands!June 14, 2018 at 4:00 pm #4247849
We’re all going to be filing taxes next year still waiting for this year. Absolutely fucking ridiculous !June 13, 2018 at 12:05 am #4247876
@Charna, your tax situation and times of the letters you received are exactly the same as mine. Same letters, same dates. My CP05 is a 45 day hold also.June 12, 2018 at 10:27 pm #4247870
@Charna, and Get an Advocate ASApP! You loosing your place will qualify. The number to call is on this forum. Best of luck, this year is friggin unreal!June 12, 2018 at 10:17 pm #4247866
@charna: Typical the CP05 letter is a 60 day hold followed by yet another hold if you call at the end of the first. They then will tell you either you have gotten an ID verify letter in the mail, which of course you haven’t, OR…. they will tell you that they will “send a letter to the other dept. to take the hold off” which will take another 30-60 days. I’m going in Friday to ID verify in person, then another 9 weeks for me. A complete dumpster fire this year for sure. Best practice ALL of us can do is to complain to congressmen and women much like the Indiana Congresswomen is calling out the IRS.June 12, 2018 at 8:12 pm #4247864

Thank you @spooky ridesJune 10, 2018 at 4:15 am #4247775
i filed back in April 1 range. I never heard anything, never got any letters I called them thursday for the first time, they said i should have gotten a ID verification in the mail. Today just got it. Will call monday and FINALLY be put in the que to get my deposit and this nightmare ended.June 9, 2018 at 5:24 pm #4247761
I got a tax advocate and even tho I had wait a month before I got her it still only took probably a month before I actually had got my money. They always can authorize to get your funds quickly released and they offer this thing if you having financial struggles to release some of your fundsJune 9, 2018 at 12:47 pm #4247754
@Treena: “being processed” is further along then “still being processed” which we have had since the beginning of February sadly enough.June 9, 2018 at 11:10 am #4247752
Mines says “still being processed,” while some of yours show the “being processed” message. Is this another delay for me? I filed last min. My 9th week is Jul 17.June 9, 2018 at 11:08 am #4247750
Why does mine say “still being processed,” while some poo f you have the “being processed” message. Is this another delay for me. My 9 weeks is July 17th. I filed last minute.June 9, 2018 at 10:17 am #4247748
Johnb, my tax professional said calling them is the worst thing we can do. It gets us flagged for other things.June 9, 2018 at 9:47 am #4247746
You are definitely spot on. Most corrupt system I’ve ever seen. If I can’t get answers I’m gonna call them every damn day until I get some. This is ridiculous. I’ve filed the same way and near the same amount for years . If I have to go through this next year I might not even file. But I bet they’ll penalize the hell out of me if I don’t. It’s a lose lose situation.
I hope everything works out with your return and your business. We just have to keep our heads upJune 9, 2018 at 7:41 am #4247740
Congratulations Meisha!!!! Think of those of us less fortunate!!! LolJune 8, 2018 at 8:48 pm #4247722
@Marty B I filed the middle of February I believe I’ve been at the same job and filed the same kids for 9 and 10 years I did work a lil part time job which wasn’t for that long I finally got a DDD date for June 13 about time.June 8, 2018 at 6:44 pm #4247720
I verified 9 weeks ago for them not to process my taxes went in to verify how long did y’all wait before u received ur returnJune 8, 2018 at 3:44 pm #4247710
@johnb I agree 100%! We lost a ton of money starting a small business as I’m not counting on social security to feed us years from now. We sunk every penny we had into it, lost allot but set us up for this year to be much better. Without the refund, I can’t buy in bulk so we’re suffering business wise and 5 damn months later, still no friggin’ answers. And I work full time in another job. They get there money every two weeks, where the hell is mine?!? I assure you I won’t File next year until the last minute. Most corrupt form of government ever!
