    I filed on Jan 29th accepted on that date. Got letter about review sent in info. Said if I disagreed send in additional info. Did that in April. They got on April 3rd. Got a letter around June 29th telling me they had not looked at info and need an additional 45 days to review.



    Its been 3 1/2 wks since I put in my refreel. It updated last Friday 6/25/15 stating my taxes were being processed. Today 7/1/15 its stating the same thing!!! I read around and some people say sometimes wmr is behind on updating andthe checks are already sent out even thiugh wmr website still says processing. Anyone ever experienced this?? Its been a long 15 wks my spouse and I worked hard for. Our money. I can’t call and speak to anyone live the automactic teller says the same thing wmr is stating refund is being processed so I hope that’s a sign that its on the way.



    Can anyone help me O still haven’t got a letter from the IRS or nothing in fact they said they still haven’t received my mail in 2011 tax return and its been 9 weeks now.
    Could someone help with some advice



    I am still waiting (2/25/2015) no letters no notice and the advocates office ummmm forgot about me ( 4/1/2015)




    I received my referral on May 13th.
    Where’s my refund just updated this past Saturday, says check sent.



    I have mailed in my amended tax return twice they say they do not have my information, its been over 5 months what’s going on. I’m wondering if this has anything to do with the news I seen on TV about the IRS stealing money?



    Ok can anyone help me please!!!!!! Bank rejected refund 2/17/15 received notice in mail stating a paper check will be mailed to me. My 10 wk waiting period ended 5/29/15 called irs said texes still frozen just put in a refreel.Today I’m not understanding this at all!!! 11 wks later I have gotton nowhere with the irs!!!! How long after the refreel will I get my check!!!!



    Zack.. both transcripts and wmr updated for me a week after they put in for my referral.. then I guess it was roughly about two weeks after that.. I got my check in the mail..




    Are you saying that you got your check before transcripts and wmr updated?
    Or that they updated the week after you called for your referral?



    Hi Im currently in the same situation as @nicole…..Been working with tax advocate since March 3rd….But still dont have a DD….Had to amend my taxes and send in proof that my dependents were mines because someone wrongfully claimed them & filed my taxes without my permission….The last item on my transcript says 290 additional tax accessed 0.00 20151704 5-18-2015….What does this mean & will i be getting a DD soon?



    Just checking in on those of us that are still waiting.

    called three or four times can not get to speak with anyone, no letters no notices no anything but a transcipt that has not updated in weeks. these dates are the same ones I had on Apr 15. nothing on the WMR this is getting ridiculous as I too am in need of my refund. I requested a TA but got a weird message from them in regards to my request to call another number and I will be transferred to someone that will be of assistance, this I did not do do not like scams so I said if it is really a TA they will call me back, three days later I get a call no messages nothing they hung up.



    Can some one tell me how would I check my income tax status I just file my 2011 refund had to mail it in its been 9 weeks wanted to check online but seem to can’t find anything thank u



    Zack… GL bud.. it took them two weeks after they put in for my referral before I received my check in the mail. My transcripts and WMR both updated on a Wed. night the following week.. so check them daily.. Your cycle date is the date they mail it.. irs rep told me that.. and double checked it online as well.. So I’ll check in here n there to see whats going on..




    Nope, not yet. STILL no updates to anything. I finally got through with calling them, they had no reason why its taking more than ten weeks.
    Put in a “30 day referral”. Im very unclear as to why they should get ANY additional time. Theyve been screwing with me for three months, that’s more than long enough.
    I’ll see if the referral actually does anything- seems to be another bullshit response from the bullshit organization.



    Zack.. Just checking to see if you’ve had any luck…



    well guys the LONGGGGG WAIT HAS FINALLY COME TO AN END!!! Received my Check in the mail today.. Cp53a dated for 2/23 mailed date was 5/7 got check by mail 5/12 ohhh happy days.. Good luck to u all its been a long wait but its finally over…



    Hello no updates on my transcripts or wmr. I am glad to read some of you got your well earned money. I am still waiting, no letters no notice… this is getting to me but tomorrow is another day.




    Hey guys I got my 2014 refund today at 12:28pm. Not five mins later my TA called to tell me my DD was set for 5/13 but of course with my net spend card I was able to get my money today 5 days early. My 2012 refund was mailed out today as well. I’m so happy right now!

    For everybody who is still waiting hang in there and if need be get a TA to speed things up for you!



    Nicole… Not sure if you have dd or getting a check… but if your approved and all looks ok on your transcripts you should get your $$ between May 7th and May 12th… my best guess….
    Ashley.. if nothing you should have yours pretty soon too… I always checked my transcripts every night just so I knew that my stuff was accurate n I wasn’t getting one pulled over on me..
    things are funny now and days.. when you’ve been waiting “forever” lol butterflies non stop when you feel like today is the day.. then it turns into tomorrow.. so on so forth… blah but cheer up guys.. I’d say by mid May towards the end of the month… everyone should have their $$.. “I hope”



    Can someone explain what this means on my Record of Account?
    Code : 290 Additional Tax assessed
    Cycle : 20151705
    Date: 05/18/2015
    Amount : 0
    When I called and talk to the IRS the lady stated my amended return was approved.
    the VMR still says processing

    Please help




    Called Tuesday was told my 2012 check would be sent out this Friday 5/8. Received my 2014 adjustment letter in the mail Monday about my adjustment dated May 11 (weird) but it just stated the new refund amount. Also TA rep told me on Monday that my 2014 refund was released last Friday 5/1 and just waiting to post my account updated weekly and not daily so I’m hoping my account for 2014 updates tomorrow and I get a refund date! Been waiting since 2/23 with TA involved 3/30.



    Mine were received on 3/16/15… the bar on “wheres my amended return” hasn’t moved at all.. this sucks!!! i am feeling so frustrated and of course i need the money!!



    my 60 days was up 4/26, and not a word from IRS.



    Waiting too long since 2/25/2015. I received a letter of approval March 23 2015 for my IS, had to pay the balance of last years, I guess since I am getting a refund this year the IRS does not want to disburse funds to me, lmao. I am really frustrated and starting to get a bit p.o’d but I will remain positive since tomorrow will be another day I havent used it for piling bills. I am glad to read that some of us have gotten their refunds! prayers and happiness to you all.


    Miss Jay

    I submitted my tax return the first week in March and it was accepted. At the end of March I received a ID Verify form in the mail. Completed the verification on March 31st and still I have heard nothing. I was able to check my transcripts but now I am unable to even sign in to see my transcript at all. Does anyone know how much longer it will take for me to hear anything? This is so frustrating.



    Hey guys.. Got an update.. Check mailed April 30th- received today March 4th. Kinda a bummer tho.. Its gone but bills and kids are taken care of.. Suppose to be a happy day and all I’ve wanted to do is stupid I know… any who..
    Zack.. that’s BullShit!! Call and go the fu****** OFF!! they have no excuse…NONE. Everyone else.. I’ll pray.. and keep up with whats going on..



    Hello everyone, still no refund, no updates, no notices and filed 2/24/2015 and accepted 2/25/2015. I have a code 570 with $0.00 was explained to me by a neighbor, a tax accountant, it will work it self out, that a lot of filers had gotten this code- it is random selection. YAY me. & wait 8- 10 weeks from processing, so the IRS had my return for a month before processing it…????? looks like a july refund. :(
    I requested a TA a week ago and nothing, so I will chalk this up to a horrible filing year and never file before march 1. I always filed the second week of march since I was 18.



    Let me know what they say when u call. My 10 weeks is up next Monday.



    No changes at all.
    Been 10 weeks- notice sent February 23rd.
    This is total and complete bullshit.



    no more updates. Just as of going back and forth. :-(



    Yes adjustment means possible decrease or increase in your return for many different reasons. It’s best to call your TA back and ask her what the adjustment is for and whether it decreased your return and if so by how much. I was able to get that info from my TA (that’s about all she honestly knew). But my adjustment was a decrease in my return by $450 due to my taxable income adjustment filed with 1040X. They say you should get a notice in the mail but 3 weeks since the adjustment was made I still haven’t received a notice.

    I would check with my TA on Monday. Even though they have a time set to call you back Friday if you need to call everyday or even call the TA hotline. I’ll keep you updated on if I get any new info before Friday.



    So after getting the Manager on the phone and the Director on the phone my TA called early morning yesterday 5/1 saying that she checked for an update on my acct and my 2012 refund check will be mailed out 5/8 and she believes the 2014 was on hold due to the ID Theft situation but she put in a request to release the refund. Here’s where the BS starts. Her manager tells me something completely diff. The manager states it was possibly on hold due to the 2012 not being processed. But my TA told me last week that the same IRS agent had processed both my 2012 & 2014 return within a week of each other so she doesn’t know what the hold up is for. If they can see that I don’t owe any taxes for either return and the check is scheduled to go out on 5/8 for my 2012 return why are they still holding the 2014?! Nobody seems to know it’s just a guessing game at this point.



    I went through the exact thing you went through. I filed on Feb 24 and I had been given the run and I finally got a tax advocate 2 weeks ago. Today my tax advocate left me a message saying the same thing that the irs will be releasing the refund because she see that the adjustment on the account had been made…does that mean that the took out money from my expected refund amount? She also told me the same that she will call me next friday because she needs to monitor it for a week. Now im just wondering if my refund is going to be less. ..I don’t owe anything so I dont know why the would adjust anything. Please let me know if you know what they mean ny adjustment? Thanks!



    So bad news guys after the hold systematically fell off another hold was placed on the acct by the case worker processing my return. No additional information needed. Called my TA her manager even got the TA director on the phone they all can see the rerun is finished processing but can’t seem to look at the codes to tell me what this hold is for they are now placing on the account. Gotta love the good ole IRS.




    Nope. No movement, transcripts look exactly the same as they have for two months now.


    Let us know what your TA says today. Sounds like you’re about to get your refund.



    Zack I have nothing yet.. My as of date changed again.. May4th to May 12 to May 18th.. Everything else is the same.. Should receive it soon though.. It says is was to be mailed on or before April 29th.. Any luck with yours yet?



    contacted IRS, waited for 45 minutes and was given no answer to the hold on my refund.
    File IS every year and never have I experienced this long wait, 3-4 weeks the most, in 2012 I rec’d my refund in 2 weeks last year it was divided from an approved debt to state but the partial was refunded in 3 weeks.
    Go figure, this is not a good year to be needing the refund back asap.

    I also inquired about the updates on the transcripts-accounts it is clear that there is no set days, it updates monday through friday at any time even on saturdays, as far as sundays- no, the system generates an treasury overall upate.

    The cycle code is also meaning a slight nothing, it is a processing received code that is digtally stamped on the returns. Like a filing system, but it does have a small meaning of last date to process in a timely manner.

    In the IRS handbook – IRM the attachments “schedules” other “forms” decide the processing time for each return when these attachments are noted giving 1-12 weeks added time.
    As a golden rule since the first day I filed never file before Jan 30, and never send it in when there are holidays within 7 days.
    Next year I will file my IS separately Dec 31 after midnight and on Feb 1 start to prepare them.
    Dot my i’s cross my t’s and never erase.
    best to all of you!




    I’m unable to see my transcripts due to the ID theft issue. My TA is set to call me tomorrow with an update so we will see what information I can get from her.

    I did some searching on the IRS website and it says the 7 calendar day hold is placed on the account when a hardship has been filed and a manual refund has been processed with TC 840. Whatever this may mean.



    okay I just got off the IRS communication barrier island and there in the surf is a bunch of sea garbage.

    Sadly no change, no update since March 23, 2015. The only change on 3/23 was dates from 3/23 to 4/27. As of today 4/29/2015 Nothing, and no updates.




    Did you check your transcripts? Those will be the most accurate way to know when your money is coming.




    Any updates for you ladies yet?


    Get your check yet? Curious to know how much longer it takes after the IRS actually updates before you have cash in hand.



    Can anyone help me out. Filed 2/23 rejected. Called IRS notified fraudulent return been filed. Send in paper return with ID and SSN and ID THEFT verification form filled out. After a month nothing called for the run around called for a tax advocate was assigned one on 3/30. Faxed her all my info including a 1040x. Two weeks pass she calls me on 4/16 to tell me as of 4/15 my refund was released and to give it too 4/30 to have a DD. well still nothing going on 2 weeks. Called today the rep told me acct had been adjusted and refund released except still pending for DD. a little more digging around and he says theirs a 7 calendar day hold on the acct which is procedure after an adjustment has been made before the system issues a refund. He states from wat he see the system released my return 4/23 and the hold should fall off 4/30 and then the system will generate a return. Is this normal? After the hold falls off anybody know how long before my refund is deposited? Thanks.



    Hello everyone, I have been searching everywhere for answers and finally decided that after going over these transcripts, I noticed a few things. My husband and I file for injured spouse for the past 5 years and they fairly been quick about sending returns. Although it takes longer because it comes in a paper check instead of DD. I have noticed that with these codes and the way the change is that every time you call the IRS, your dates change and you get the 290 code with a different date. I also noticed that the dates are a week at least into the future that it makes me wonder if they generate these dates not by codes but by when the next available agent clocks in. I have been watching these transcripts for the past two weeks and before I got them, I called into the IRS with a wait time of 30-60 minutes and on the days i called i got the 290 code. I called twice and got 2 codes for 290. Although i do have the 846 code now, my refund issue code says may 11, 2015 but was told by IRS agent that it should arrive by the 29th of april. So for those out there still waiting on a paper check with a issue date as of may 11th, it may be on or before that actual date.



    Just a thought maybe you should take Barts Thoughts off. He obviously is not on. I saw it coming. His answers were short and to the point. However without diligence like in previous years his input is no good. Thanks Bart for all previous input we appreciate it. You did your due diligence and it’s over. We need a new person on here. Please not Thomas off of your facebook page. He does not have the knowledge. I have been following this page for years and you have to have someone who is willing to put in the time each year and answer the questions in a every changing IRS world. Once again thanks Bart.



    Marie.. Mine changed so many times it’s not funny.. My as of Date changed 3-4 times.. processing date did to.. I checked my transcripts every night for the last three months lol.. but after a few weeks no change then checked it Wednesday night hen I got off work n boom… uh uh ohhhh it’s magic ya know.. heh. tired ugh sorry … anyways.. Got an 846 code followed by a new cycle date.. so I’ve been checking the mail every day. GL to you too… let me know of any updates…



    Joshfl904… my cycle date is 20151604… date of April 29th… you should receive your refund between April 30th n May 11th… that’s my best guess looking at what you’ve got up there.. I don’t see any freeze codes or anything.. so hopefully my opinion helps.. GL



    Drew The csr I spoke with told me the as of date will change as they work on your case. Not sure why it would bounce unless they are doing some serious digging. But hopefully you’ll receive yours soon… GL



    Has anyone’s as of date changed and the same day or a day later changed back to the previous date?

    Mine started as March 2
    Changed to may 4
    Then back to march 2
