    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

I did.. took few weeks but I made my point. I’ll pray for you.. I’ll post it when I receive mine.. and FYI to all the WMR will update the day your transcripts update as well.. it shows all bars lit up on mine and says refund sent..




    Thanks for the insight. I am hoping for the best :) I will keep everyone updated



    Again, Friday.
    Again, no updates.
    Again, hoping that the entire structure of the IRS crashes and burns.




    Minds did that last Thursday and Saturday morning I got a DDD so I wanna say either Friday or Saturday u will have a date or came look a transcript



    What do it mean when it says still processing a date will be provided with tax topic 152 and you still could see the refund amount



    @rayne congrats




    Congrats! My as keeps changing from april 27th to may 4th. Changed about 5 or 6 times but no 846 code. Did yours do the same before u saw an 846 code?



    Bart or ANYONE…

    Filed on Feb 04th, and FINALLY today, I was able to see this year’s account transcript.
    But it only has as of date: 05/11/2015… Everything else has 0.00 next to it.
    My WMR still has the generic message saying the same thing as other people here.

    Does anyone know what the as of date mean here?
    How can I have as of date of May when it’s still in April???

    Will it be the date that I suppose to expect my refund?
    Or is that the date they will start on my return?
    Any idea?

    Has anyone else here who had a future as of date as mine & if you had, could you share what happened on AT THAT DATE?

    Since I have TA, IRS wouldn’t say anything, and my TA is not calling me back…

    Any insight will be appreciated




    Oh I hope so, I filed back in jan… it’s been a long confusing frustrating wait. And it seems like everyone with the same issues has been able to at least look their transcripts for some answers but I haven’t been able to.



    @cameo It means you should update with a direct deposit date by Saturday




    if anyone can answer this for me. I’ve been getting the generic your return has been received and is being processed and date will be available soon etc.. since i filed but today it says we have received your tax refund and it is being processed. Can’t access my transcripts By mail always tells me to call the number to order one. And can’t access it online bc of identity theft thing. Any answers?




    Congrats! No changes here…….
    I thought it was only Friday’s that they updated. Good to know!



    I got an update ladies n gentleman..! Just got transcript update 846 5-11-15 20151604 cycle date…finally!!! Thank you JESUS! goodluck to those still waiting.. been a bunch of b.s. but refunds are on the way…!



    Good Morning ALL. After 13 long weeks of this dreadful season….I had to get a TA 4 weeks ago and had to verify my income and FINALLY woke to the 846 refund issued code with the date 05/11/2015!!



    Hi Bart or anyone,do any one know when will I get my 2011 tax return back or how long I was self employed that year I just filed it February



    I I’m in the same boat. E-filed 2/23 rejected same day called IRS my SSN was stolen and a fraudulent return had been filed. Had to submit paper return which was received 2/27 along with my 2012 returns. after 2 weeks of wmr saying processing a date will be provided when available I checked the forums and noticed people were having to verify their identity so I called. After verifying my identity the rep assured me everything was fine give it two weeks to have my return after some big update. Well no return or update it’s now end of March. I requested TA assistance on 3/26. Got a call from her on 3/30 out of Memphis. I explained her my situation she said from what she could see my return was processing and was being held cuz they didn’t recieve my 2012 returns which I mailed a day apart as my 2014 returns same address & also I needed to file a 1040x for my 2014 return. so my TA tells me to fax her my 2012 & 2014 1040x amended returns along with a past due notice for rent and a light bill and she will go ahead and submit it same day and give me a call back Tuesday 4/7. After calling my TA and the TA hotline number my TA finally calls me on 4/16 early in the morning telling me she got an update from the IRS on 4/15 stating they had processed my 2014 returns and they are releasing my funds and she will call me back 4/30 to see if I have gotten my DD yet. She said it may come sooner. I asked her would this hold up my DD since they still hadn’t processed my 2012 & I have a hardship she stated no. Do you think I will be getting my refund soon? Since I am an Identity theft victim I am unable to see my transcripts online. My wmr has not changed it still says processing. Can I still get a DD soon even though wmr still says processing & my TA said they are releasing my funds. Thank you so much for help have a blessed day!




    I have no changes either. Talked to an advocate who was down right hateful.




    I don’t even have any changes to the “as of” date. Transcripts are exactly the same as they have been since February.
    Testing every reserve of patience I have, for sure!



    Hey guys…. nothing yet.. All that happened on my end last night was the “as of date” changed from March 9th to May 4th on my transcripts.. Definitely have no idea what that means.. but i’ll keep ya posted..



    want to mention my transcripts may have updated ONE day before the money came but I didn’t notice it. Was going to avail Tax Advocate tomorrow if the money didn’t appear today, but no need.



    Hey Bart, thanks a million for all your help this year. Would you be so kind as to post that link you did a few months ago for donations and if things have changed, post another?
    My simple saga – filed accepted 1-23
    called after 21 days, no info, wait for letter,
    month later – not received
    mailed certified
    five days later
    April 15 cash on Netspend

    Hang in there folks – there may be an investigation into who and why things happened like this, and it ain’t incompetency



    Hi everyone. The best thing to do is get in touch with a tax advocate. I’ve been through so much this tax season. I filed on January 20th and havent had any updates since. I spoke with a tax advocate last week Friday and they called me today and said I will have an update friday and get my money next week. So simple smh




    My transcript as of date at the top changed from march 02 (my notice date on my cp53a notice) to april 27th. So they are workin on something!



    My recommendation to all like me is get a TA. Try to proof a economical hardship. I filed on Jan 21, received first letter about ID verify on Feb 9. Then when I thought that problem was solved, another letter 4664c was received on 3/5 asking for at least 60 days for review. On March 9 I called TA hotline submitted some evidence of economical hardship, next week I received call it was received. On march 31, TA called me to notify that my refund was released and that I could expect a DDD on 2 weeks. Last Saturday I woke up with a DDD for 4/15. It takes a long trip. Also I suggest that if you have a id verify letter or identity theft issue do not try to obtain transcripts because it will not helps and I think that will delay more the process because IRS might thinks that someone is trying to get your identity or something like that. And for next year I will file by myself, Jackson Hewitt has a big fee and is all the same.




    Same here. No updates at all. Every Friday, I think “this will be the day”. It never is.
    The IRS is no help- different reps will tell you completely different things. This is without a doubt the worst tax season yet.



    Hey all.. still don’t have anything. I’m beginning to wander if the csr’s just tell you what you want to hear. Been almost two weeks since my last call and I still have no updates or a check. I work long hrs so I will try to keep you guys updated on my end.



    @leslie we are in the same boat. Looking for some sort of insight on our situation.



    my “as of” dates at the top also changed from 2/23 to 4/27 now. No other changes. Still have 570 with 2/16 and 971 with 2/23 next to it. Got a cp05 that was supposed to be done “reviewing” by 4/9 … still no other changes.



    I meant to say last Friday it went from 02/23/2015 to 03/02/2015 back to 02/23/2015 and changed back this morning to 03/02/2015



    Help anyone PLEASE!!! My as of date has changed the past two Fridays. Last Friday it went from 02/23/2015 to 03/02/2015 and this Friday morning it’s back to 03/02/2015. What does this mean? Is it processing?



    Well, Friday once again. No updates to anything once again.
    Another week of tax hell at least.



    OK so I had to verify myself. So I called the number and verified. The guy stated wasn’t sure how long it would take to see my refund. My question is how long will it take for me to see my transcripts? I can’t see them online nor can I order them. I’ve been waiting for my refund since Jan.



    One more thing, if your refund was held up for any reason, you will not see any updates until Fridays. It is best to go off your transcripts, because my advocate said in most cases, wmr and the app will not update at all, or until after you get your refund.



    I just want to share my story with everyone on this page to maybe give some insight, I filed on Feb. 5, accepted the 7th, two and a half weeks go by and my bars disappear, I am not a patient person mind you,, so I called the IRS, got a recording, so I searched Google and found a number to get a live person. Three people gave me the run around, so I kept calling and actually told them I was going to keep calling until someone gave me an answer because in reality, it doesn’t take this long. So, after that, I guess they realized I wasn’t going to stop calling and someone gave me an answer. I never submitted my 1095-a form nor my 8962 form. Well no duh, the lady who did our taxes told me that she could skip that this year. Well apparently she couldn’t, he helped me fill the forms out and what fax number to send it too. I did so the next day, well around March 15? I think, I called to just make sure everything was going smoothly. I guess they wanted to start with the regular answers again, I kept calling. The next lady realized I had called a lot, I told her that I wanted answers, so she said she honestly could not give me answer, but referred me to a tax advocate. The tax advocate did not require anything of me, she asked for no proof of hardships, but just to fax over my 1095 and 8962 forms to her. It generally takes two weeks before you see any movement, first week for the errors department to fix an issue, second week is for the IRS to actually process your return. After two weeks I was able to see my transcripts. Now, it didn’t have the refund issued 846 code, but it takes a week after you get your transcripts to see it, my tax advocate told me I will see it this Friday and get my refund next week. I know that a lot of you may not have any hardships, or some may, but trust me, hiring a tax advocate is really helpful, you know could get your money in almost 2-3 weeks and get some real answers at the same time. My advice is this, if your tiring of waiting, its been over 21 day, and keep getting the run around.. call them..



    Hey guys… Updating…again. I have nothing, nada, zip… I hope IRS isn’t gonna make us wait whole 10 weeks..But i’ll keep checking in..




    Anyone have any changes?
    We seem to be stuck in limbo. Next Monday will be seven weeks since the date of cp53a letter. Of course, the letter says 8-10 weeks. General consensus seems to be that checks are sent 4-6 later. Well, tomorrow will be the end of week 6 for those of us with the 2/23 letter date- soooooooooo hoping for an update to transcripts in the morning. This wait is torture.

    Just an update of my 2015 Tax Season….Personally Bart’s Thoughts wasn’t very helpful at all.

    1/20 – Filed on Turbo Tax
    1/23 – IRS officially accepted my return
    2/10 – Found out I was pulled for a “random review” had to call IDVERIFY and called to verify and was told I had to wait another 6 weeks
    2/10 through 3/23 – Received a 5071C letter and 4464c letter and reached out to the Taxpayer Advocate Service to help expedite my refund process. Can’t see transcripts online but I can get them via mail, can’t login to IDVERIFY online to check if I’m verified, when I call IDVERIFY, it knocks me out due to high call volume. My taxpayer advocate sucks she doesn’t call back in her allotted time frame and is very rude. I haven’t heard from her in over a week when she told me she would send in an inquiry to expedite my process.
    3/23 – Six weeks later and guess what? STILL NO REFUND! Where’s my refund saying “Still processing. Date will be provided…blah blah blah” I called the regular line and she told me that my process is now in the hands of my advocate. So I called her and no answer of course. I left a message.
    4/04 – FINALLY got an update on WMR and a DDD.
    4/08 – FINALLLLY GOT MY REFUND!!! Nearly three months later!

    In my case, Bart wasn’t very helpful. He estimated that I would have my refund before March 23 but that wasn’t the case. This whole site seems to be a bunch of guessing games. I think the best advice is to keep calling the IRS and/or your tax advocate and just wait. That’s all you can really do.



    IRS still says they can’t provide any information until it has been the full 10 weeks.
    This is obviously not true, as numerous other people have been given information. I wish the entire IRS structure would just fucking burn.



    Still no update but ive seen people on the igotmyrefund fb page with TAs get their return after a cp53a notice this week and last. : ( need someupdates



    I have no 570 code.. 570 mean.. (Additional account action pending or Additional Liability Pending/or Credit Hold) I honestly believe that most cp53a notices are manually reviewed… Lord only knows why.. but I don’t lol… anytime I really don’t understand one of my Transcript codes.. I visit thia website…. It’s been the only way I’ve been able to half a** keep up with what they are doing with my refund.. I hope this link helps.. But If you can’t get an answere out of a csr in the mornings… call around 4-6 in the evening… I wish I could remember the guys id#… I could’ve sent you and Diane straight to him.. But like I said the other day… we spoke on Friday and I still don’t have any updates.



    I filed & accepted March 23rd, had 1 bar with we have received your refund and a date will be available within 21 days until around the 31st or so then nothing but refund being processed with no refund amount, then Thursday I could order only my account transcript by mail (but don’t look for it since I got my 2013 transcripts by mail and today in the mail received a letter telling me can not process those transcripts) but can not access the return transcript, but Friday the same message is on wmr refund is being processed but refund amount is back on. I can not order transcripts online for I get the message call identity protection. Have not received any letters or codes either thank you for any answer or advice.




    Did you have a 570 code on transcripts? I haven’t seen this code, and I don’t believe Diane has either.
    I ask because you mentioned “review”. Did you have any indication you were in review, or is this their “investigation” they mention on the letter?




    I am in the exact same time frame as you.
    Originally sent and rejected by bank on 2-4.
    cp53a notice dated 2-23.
    No movement on transcript at all past the 971 code for when the notice was issued.



    Totally agree.. I wouldn’t want to p*** them off at all lol… The gentleman did say that is what they are suppose to say and they will stick by the notice date… but usually funds are mailed 3-6 weeks from that date. But the man told me they have 30 days from review date to issue a check.. He told me my stuff was reviewed on Feb 18th.. takes to two weeks.. add an additional two for the manual.. he said it’s all one big process done through more then one person… so I don’t really know how it all works. The man I spoke with was awesome at telling me where I was on the review but it’s mandatory with all the id theft going on.. That I understand. I’ll pray for you and Zack… I’ll check in once a day to see where everyone is at and let you guys know where I stand..




    IRS gives the same answer 8 to 10 weeks from notice date. I am not a patient person, but the irs is someone I choose to play nice with



    To be honest.. both you and Zack need to call the IRS. Especially if your notice is 2-23… that’s ridiculous.. They are way past their 30 days.. if your transcripts don’t have any hold codes and haven’t changed or if you don’t receive anything come tomorrow afternoon I’d call…




    My cp53a was dated 2/23. No updates no nothing indicating they have done anything. I believe @zach was same time frame as mine but not positive . Please keep us updated and I will do the same



    I haven’t received my refund after my cp53a notice, hopefully soon. They all say 8-10 weeks but their deadline standards are 30 days after the date of the I’m told. After my phone call Friday with the IRS I will keep you guys up to date with any news I get. My notice was dated 3-9-15.. but received it Feb 24th.. Hopefully mine rolls in this week… been almost three months without my refund.



    Has anyone received their refund after a cp53a notice?



    Is their anyone on this forum received a 4464c letter who received their refund before the dreaded 60 days????



    Who is this Bart Character that everyone is trying to get their urgent questions responded to? It’s obvious he will not be returning this year..he stated he would be back thursday but was a no show, must be too busy spending and enjoying his refund while the rest of us look stupid waiting on his responses, so sad. FUCK THE IRS I SWEAR THEY NEED TO BE ABOLISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Hey Bart. I don’t know if you remember me. I filed and was accepted 1/20. I id verified on 2/24. My account transcript updated on 2/27 with codes 150 806 570. Called irs on march 12 and a rep tells me that the hold on my refund is scheduled to be released on march 23. Called march 24 and it wasn’t released. My account transcript has a as of date of april 6. I called up the irs yesterday and a rep tells me that I have to wait up to 9 weeks from 2/24 to receive my refund. Which will put me at may 1. And then he also said that my account indicates that it may need additional reviewing and that if it does need additional reviewing that they will send me a letter. I asked him if they sent me out a letter for the additional review and he says so far no letter has gone out or is scheduled to go out. And that I can still receive my refund before may 1. What I want to know is how come he didn’t know for sure that I am under additional review?And what should I do when may 1 comes and I still don’t have my refund? Will they be able to do a referral for me once my 9 weeks are up? Any imput will be great. Thanks.



    Dear Bart: We filed our taxes on 01/31/2015. We expected our return within 2 weeks. No, it was delayed beyond the 21 days. I contacted the IRS who told me that they did not receive a 1095a for my daughter who we were claiming had health insurance for the entire year. The Marketplace had failed to send the IRS the correct 1095a showing that she did have insurance for the entire year. We have contacted a tax advocate and our U.S. senator. This has been the most frustrating experience ever. Today, my status has changed to show a phone number to call with reference code #1242. We claim our 21 year old daughter as a dependent because she lives with us year round and is disabled due to ADHD. She is unemployed. We also claim her for EIC. We also claim our 17 year old son for EIC. I believe that the IRS is asking for proof of our daughter’s dependency and EIC status. And we will have to fill our 4 specific forms. I believe this will delay our refund even more. We had hoped to receive it in April. I don’t know if that’s likely now or not. Do we need to be worried about claiming our daughter as a dependent and EIC? I am really concerned and do not know how to reply when I talk with my tax advocate next week. Thanks for your help.

    Hello Bart I see you have alot of questions to answer ill just stick mine in there. I am unsure if there is anything I can do other than just be patient. I filed the 6th of January was accepted the 13th was told a cp was sent on the 16th but i did not find this out until waiting the 20 days after they opened the season. My city was incorrect and somehow my correct zip code was changed which I did not get my cp 12 letter for the 1095 so the agent referred me to mail in my form 8962 to correct the issue. I of course immediately mailed in the form which i was told to mail not fax and I even asked to fax but anyways they acknowledged they received it the 17th of February, processed it the 13th of March. Was mailed a cp letter informing me they had gotten my forms and needed an additional 40 days before making a decision. I don’t understand why another 40 days? I also am unable to see my transcripts online as well as not being able to get my 2014 by mail. I talked to an agent about a week ago and he told me he did not see anything on mu profile and he mentioned the 40 days would put my refund around the 13th of April. Unsure what to do?j




    Filed and Accepted 1/28.
    ID verified 2/20.
    Called IRS Monday 3/30 and Lady stated she has no idea why I don’t have refund and she sees no codes, all 0s, and as of date March 16th on transcripts. She said it’s happened to many people and she put in a referral to help get my refund. What exactly should I expect now? If I had no codes or nothing on her end, should I know see progress fast and has everything been clear? How long should this take?



    I called IRS again today. The man I spoke with said there isn’t any reason why my funds haven’t been mailed to me yet. He seemed kinda shocked I haven’t received it at all considering my codes. He also stated that they were at their 30 day mark and who ever was working my case prolly still has my stuff still sitting on their desk…so He put me on hold and put in a referral for the release of my funds. The have a certain time to respond to it…but it generally gets released with no hold up codes…Getting a tax advocate involved now would just put my refund on hold for an additional 4-6 weeks. I have no clue what to expect. I hope something gives soon… I’m in a bad bind enough as it is. Know your busy Bart…but when you get a chance drop me in some insight. Thx..



    is anyone getting any help with their questions? I can’t seem to find anyone to answer any questions including this site



    My as of date changed from 02/23/2015 to 03/02/2015 over night but I checked back again and it’s back at 02/23/2015. What does this mean?



    I filed my taxes on January 10th. It got held for review in the beginning of February. I received my notice CP05 stating that after April 9th my refund would be released. But since it’s getting close, I’ve been checking my transcripts almost daily and FINALLY today a different code showed up. 896 showed up with the description “Refund applied to non-IRS debt” with date of 4/20/15 and a dollar amount. What exactly does that mean? It’s not the 846 I was looking forward to.



    Just an insight of what happened to me. Filed February 2 around the 20 bars went missing then got a 4464C letter. Waited two weeks and got a tax advocate. Didn’t have to show hardship I just told them my lights were about to get cut off. The tax advocate took my case march 26 turned in pay stubs and a letter from my boss proving income woke up this morning with my bars back and refund approved with a direct deposit date of April 6. So a tax advocate really does help a lot because I believe I would still be waiting. Good luck yall

    April that is definately a good question because I too on previous transcripts for 2012 and 2013 I have that code but when I talked to a rep last week he stated that it would not affect 2014 while on the phone he said he is gonna mail out a letter and to just respond to it basically instructing me on what to do because the 922 is a code for unreported income he said i should receive the letter within 9 days and so far I have no 971 code (letter sent) on my 2014 so im hoping it want affect it I wish the letter already came so I can atleast see if it says they can’t finish processing my 2014 until that is resolved



    Thanks for your patience and time, I have followed and watched you help several people. I filed and was accepted 1/23 ,the irs states my tax return began processing on 2/3 which is around the time my bars disappeared. I was able to see my transcripts for the first time 2/6. All the normal codes with code 570 at the end, no other codes following such as 971. I was told by two irs reps that I was not being reviewed. However I looked at my 2013 transcripts and I have a 922 with the date 3-16-15 next to it. I also have an as of date for interest of 3/23/15. I rcvd cp2000 on 3/19/15 with an amount owed for the previous year. I called back and was told my 2013 shouldn’t affect my 2014. Is that true? Because it looks as if it has affected my tax return and according to the irs manual if there is an open investigation on a prior year return it will affect your return. I need my refund, I didn’t know it could be held this long.

    Refund split one deposited other rejected. Cp53a dated 2/23. No updates anywhere. Don’t have a hardship by IRS standards. When should I see some movement?

    Exact same situation as Diane. Several other people in the same boat.
    Any thoughts?




    Filed and Accepted 1/28.
    ID verified 2/20.
    Called IRS Monday 3/30 and Lady stated she has no idea why I don’t have refund and she sees no codes, all 0s, and as of date March 16th on transcripts. She said it’s happened to many people and she put in a referral to help get my refund. What exactly should I expect now? If I had no codes or nothing on her end, should I know see progress fast and has everything been clear? How long should this take?



    Hi Bart,
    My issue is a lot like the few I’ve been reading. I filed 1-28-15 accepted same day. Had a ddd for Feb. 13 return was split into two. One received other rejected. Received a cp53a notice on Feb. 24 dated for March 9,2015. No WMR updates or my transcripts. But here is what it reads: Cycle date 20150602 date 3-2-15/ codes 150/ 806 (4-15-15) 766 (4-15-15) 768 (4-15-15)/ 846 (3-2-15) 846 (3-2-15) 841 (3-2-15) 971 (3-9-15) Return Due Date or Receive Date (which ever is later) 4-15-15…. Processing date (3-2-15) as of March 9, 2015 and my balance due. I can’t get any info out of irs reps… Please tell me you have a general idea when I’ll receive my refund in the mail. Thanx.




    Confused about all the the codes and can not figure out when I will actually get refund

    return was accepted Jan 22

    checked transcript yesterday and found the following:

    Return due date or return received date (whichever is later) April 15 2015
    Processing Date 3/16/15
    cycle code 20150805 date 3/16/15
    766 credit to your account 4/15/15
    570 additional account action pending 3/16/15
    810 refund freeze 3/16/15
    811 refund released 3/16/15
    971 notice issued 3/23/15

    I received the notice a week before 3/23/15 but all it said was I didn’t have to do anything, they were still reviewing my return

    Any idea based off of this info what is happening with my refund?




    Refund split one deposited other rejected. Cp53a dated 2/23. No updates anywhere. Don’t have a hardship by IRS standards. When should I see some movement?


    Carolina Girl

    Hi Bart,
    Finally got a sort of update: .I filed 2/2 bars went missing 2/20 then around 3/1 I got 2 letters in the same envelope from IRS requesting I do ID Verify, Transcripts updated last Thur. night, finally able to see all 4 transcripts. Account transcript has the 150 tax return filed, 768 EIC, then 570 Add’l action pending -$0 -so wondering if maybe that 570 was for the ID Verify, which I did online? I only update once a week, usually on Thursday night. with both transcripts and WMR. Cycle is 20151105 Date by the 570 is 4-6



    I am here I will be on Thursday and will answer Any new questions Thursday.

    Ps I got my refund beginning of feb lol so that’s not the reason I wasn’t on. I travel a lot for work and have been busy sorry guys

    Any past post will be ignored for most prolly have answers by now



    Lol. I noticed Bart hasn’t responded to anyone as well.



    Looks like Bart got his refund and said forget helping ya’ll



    Hello everyone,
    I filed and was accepted 1/23. 1/29 got letter 4464c for a 60 day review. Today was the 61st day and still no refund, no request for more info, and I haven’t been able to view my transcript since early February! Everything was okay per the transcript except for that nasty code 570 which is a freeze code. I have a tax advocate who hasn’t returned my calls even after faxing him proof of hardship. I’m getting really agitated. Any advice? Literally…ANY advice?



    I have seen no movement and cannot get any answers from the irs




    Nothin at all. Just so frustrated and anxious to get some answers and no one seems to have any at all.




    Week 4 came and went with no update to transcripts or WMR .
    CP53a dated 2-23.
    Have you heard of any new delays or anything?
    Frustration growing by the day.

    Marie, Diane: Any updates on yours?



    Transcript updated friday with 846 code… WMR udated Saturday with take action 1242 reference code and 151 tax topic. With message returned received and being reviewed. The problem is i was in review and faxed 1095A and other form on March 3. The amount of refund went up after a little over 100 dollars per my transcript. Did this happen to anyone else…. F/A 1-30



    @christina I have a question if you just got a DDD just today how did the irs send your money in your account that fast the first is Wednesday and I know I have gotten my return and only got it two days faster from my DDD date? I’m concerned because that’s five days early do they send your money out the same day you get a DDD? Please reply



    Okay so i’ve had one nightmare after another with taxes. i was f/a jan 20th it went through processing then had a ddd 2/11 but then pulled into review for id verification had an 1121 ref code on feb 12, 841 refund cancelled code verified online 3/2 got a letter dated feb 26th on march 4 (4883c letter) called and verified again March 20th and had an 846 the following friday… sat updated to 2 bars refund approved ddd 4/1 … called bank march 28th to see if anything was pending yet it was rejected march 27th… they couldn’t give me a single reason….. are they going to put me back into review again or send me a check



    My Transcripts updated last night/this morning with an 846 April 13 and I do believe WMR will update tonight/tomorrow morning with my DDD info. I believe it will be for Wed April 1st.
    I filed on January 21st. Owed back taxes.



    Hello Bart and Others,

    I received a CP49 letter last week that my refund would be offset to pay a state tax and the remaining refund sent to me.

    Then today, my tax transcript updated with an 846 code (Refund Issued) with a date of 4/13.
    There is no update on WMR. Does this notice mean that my refund will be sent on 4/13 or will it be direct deposited sooner or it will be mailed (on 4/13)?

    thanks – Punda.

    Hey everyone!
    I’m sure there are many of you like me who have been following message boards to try an figure out when our refunds will come. So here is a little insight as to how mine is working out. I E filed my taxes with TT on Feb. 10. We were supposed to receive a DD 2/18, however because my student loans it was offset. I did not work so we sent in an IS on the 12th. On my transcripts it shows they received it 2/23. Here is what it looks like now

    766 Reversal of refund applied to 04-15-2015 -$X,XXX
    non-IRS debt
    290 Additional tax assessed 20151005 03-30-2015 $0.00
    971 Amended tax return or claim 02-23-2015 $0.00
    forwarded for processing
    977 Amended return filed 02-23-2015 $0.00
    971 Notice issued 03-30-2015 $0.00
    290 Additional tax assessed 20151105 04-06-2015 $0.00
    846 Refund issued X,XXX 4/6/15

    So i got the refund issued for full amount that was taken, and 20151105 cycle which would indicate a march 26 DD however I sent my file afterword so I’m expecting a paper check which i HOPE is mailed today. If anyone has questions or needs advice ill try and help…ive done alot of research that past few weeks and I’m hoping that everyone struggling or not, gets there money soon!



    I have noticed this is just a venting site, nothing ever gets resolved.



    @marie @diane

    NOTHING changed on transcript or where’s my refund.
    Looks like the people on facebook were just talking out of their ass, as per the usual.
    I hate the IRS more than I have ever hated any person or institution.
    They can all go to hell.


    In the dark

    Tried to get through on the main 1040 number, could not because of call volume. So called IPSU number again Tue and nice rep excused himself for a few minutes to check on our return. Back on the line he said it was done being reviewed and everything looked good and we would see a refund in a couple more weeks. Told him how much we needed it at this point, and how worried we’ve been. Mid conversation he said “another week or so.” Then at the end, he said “really soon now.”

    Then today, change! Message has gone from “return is still being processed… date will be provided when available” to “We have received your return and it is being processed.”

    From what I’ve heard others say, this may mean tomorrow we’ll be able to order Return transcript and Saturday we should get bars back with a DDD of maybe Wednesday. I’m sure hoping.

    If it does go that way, I really might start thinking that some of the reps have a way to push it through faster if they have pity for your plight.



    @angel thank you I thought the exact same thing and when questioned about the 570 code she stated she couldn’t give the info what a bunch of crap

    Hi Bart! I received my 2014 tax refund mid-February and had to file an amended return. I waited until I received my original refund. I filed the amended return on 2/25/15. It was accepted and showed up about 3 weeks later on the WheresMyAmendedReturn website, and they acknowledged receiving it on 2/25. Since then, the WMAR has shown no change. However, when I look at my transcript for this year’s return, it updated last Thursday and it shows the amended return coming in and it shows an 846 code and refund sent with a date of 04/06/15 next to it. What is this date? Does it mean that is the date they plan on mailing the check out? Or is it the date I should receive it by? It has been a week today since the transcript updated, but no update on the WMAR. I am hoping they are not waiting until April 6th to mail out the check if it has already been approved and should be ready to go? Thanks for your help.



    For brandie!! I never heard any such thing about them adding an additional 30 days to every phone call I wouldn’t fall for that one I guess they trying to make a fool out of yu so want keep calling cause that is some bull crap!!!



    Here’s our story filed 2/3 approved in minutes after the 21st day all bars on wmr disappeared called irs says everything looks fine taking a bit longer than usual a week later called back and had to verify identity they said to go to irs office with Id to prove identity did that on March 2nd.
    Transcripts came up a week later with processing date of 20150915 there is a 570 with date of 3/23 and as of today no update.
    Called on Monday lady says it’s almost done with review but also did say she sees that we have called at least once a week and to be mindful when you call they tack on an additional 30 days so now to wait til may
    How is that possible




    Can you post a link to this? I’d love to read this discussion, and I really really hope it’s accurate! Thanks.



    @zack &Diane
    Was just told on igotmyrefund fb page that several people were told by the irs they will see an update friday then checks will be mailed out next friday. They had a cp53a notice and names not matching for DD. Fingers crossed for us too!!!




    I haven’t seen any movement.




    Have you seen any movement on your transcripts past the 971 code?
    That’s where I’ve been forever!



    IRS received my return 2/7/2015 on 2/15 I could review my transcripts and noticed I had a 570 hold the WMR had 1 bar and tax topic 152 a week later I lost all bars and could not view the transcripts it stated I have already set up a user ID to to obtain the password to enter the last 4 of the social and email address and they will email it to me well NOTHING I have not been able to view yet the 570 code had a 3/16/2015 date I called the IRS said 570 was to verify income and nothing needed from me at this time I have not gotten a letter or anything here it is 3/25 and nada I have no clue what is going on and cannot get through to the IRS don’t know what to do I need this money help



    Im in the same as zack also. Except a week later. This is my 3rd week. No vhange in transcript or wmr. Nothing at all. Letter said do noting and last code is 971. Notice sent. should we expect the full 10 weeks?




    I have a question,

    I filed a 8379 form stand alone as i did last year. but this year I am confused with my transcript.

    I have codes:

    766: Reversal of refund applied to non- IRS debt 04/15/2015
    290: Additional tax assessed 20151105 04/06/2015
    And the one that i really dont get code 971: Hardship refund 03/13/2015 $0.00

    Does anyone know about this hardship refund? I wish i knew what was going on but IRS rejects my call everyday due to high call volume,,,




    I am in the same boat as Zach. Same dates and everything. What is the best case scenario for the refunds to be released?




    Confused about all the the codes and can not figure out when I will actually get refund

    return was accepted Jan 22

    checked transcript yesterday and found the following:

    Return due date or return received date (whichever is later) April 15 2015
    Processing Date 3/16/15
    cycle code 20150805 date 3/16/15
    766 credit to your account 4/15/15
    570 additional account action pending 3/16/15
    810 refund freeze 3/16/15
    811 refund released 3/16/15
    971 notice issued 3/23/15

    I received the notice a few days ago an it said I didn’t have to do anything

    Any idea based off of this info what is happening with my refund?




    Any reason why the refund would take longer after cp53a?
    Refund rejected and returned to IRS February 6th, cp53a letter has date of 2/23 on it. Im now in my 4th week since letter date just waiting. I know you’ve said 2-4 weeks from cp53a letter.
    Transcript hasn’t moved. Last code is 971 for the notice being issued, with the 841 for refund cancelled (when it was sent back by the bank) dated February 16th.
    I check transcripts several times a day, still looking for the elusive good news.
    Never hated a government entity like I do the IRS- the representatives are no help when you call, if not plain rude.
    No options for email assistance.
    I just want my damn money.

    Any thoughts into this?



    Hi Bart,

    Please help; The dates are below; I have been calling and calling IRS to get update. I can not access anything online. When I tried, I received call IRS Identity protection line. I called them and they advised me I had Identity protection on my Federal return and it can take up to 6-8 weeks for processing. I called again today 3/23/2015 and they told me the review on my file has been completed as of 3/20/2015, then they stated it will take another 9 weeks to process ? WHAT? another nine weeks??? Never got any letters. How long before they send the money please. IRS also faxed me a copy of my transcript.

    Filed on 1/29/2015
    Accepted 1/29/2015
    Started processing 2/2/2015
    Sent to review on 2/21/2015
    Review Completed 3/20/2015



    I filed TT 1/28 and was accepted after an hour
    My state return was approved and processed and refund received 2/5
    WMR bars disappeared 2/9 with message that says it is being processed and a a refund date will be given when available. Amount is still there but Tax Topic 152 notice is gone.
    I have called a few times to check status / information but never get to a live body.

    Tried requesting transcripts online but was not able to pull them up. Directs me to call a Identity Fraud line… I have not contacted them because every time I call I am on hold for so long… calling on my lunch breaks because they are closed before work and after work so this is the only time I can call and by the time lunch is over… I am still on hold.


    Shantay T

    I filed and was accepted on Feb 4. I called on Feb 25 and was told that people who had the marketplace insurance had to wait 45 days and that I did not have to send my 1095 in because it was correct with what the marketplace had in their computer. I was assigned a TA on March 4 because of hardship. My TA called me on March 6 and told me that I did not have to fax anything in and that she was going to send my info over to IRS to tell them to release my refund by the March 13. My TA called me on March 12 but I missed her call so I did not talk with her until March 17, which was the day that she said she was going to call me back, and she told me that they needed a copy of my 1095 by March 19 so that they can finish processing my return. I faxed the information to her on the 17 so I was wondering if anyone knows how much longer it would take me to get my return. My transcript online still has my old address on it but I filed with my new address.



    @DIANAM ok thanks, sure hope this is the case. Tired of waiting



    @april As long as you got your 846 on your transcript, then you should get your deposit on wednesday. Just keep checking your bank account. It might post earlier than wednesday.



    Does WMR HAVE to update with your ddd before you get your refund? I have 846 and cycle date 20151105
    3/25.. But WMR hasn’t updated to my ddd. I went from the 1121 code to “received and is being processed” . Am I still gonna get my refund on Wednesday if wmr doesn’t update?






    He said he was sending the referral to the department it was in so that they can release it because they had what they needed from me so how do yu think its gonna play out an how long do yu think its gonna take for me to get my refund?


    Erica G.

    Just an update of my shitty ass 2015 Tax Season

    1/20 – Filed on Turbo Tax
    1/23 – IRS officially accepted my return
    2/10 – Found out I was pulled for a “random bitch ass review” had to call IDVERIFY and called to verify and was told I had to wait another 6 weeks
    2/10 through 3/23 – Received a 5071C letter and 4464c letter and reached out to the Taxpayer Advocate Service to help expedite my refund process. Can’t see transcripts online but I can get them via mail, can’t login to IDVERIFY online to check if I’m verified, when I call IDVERIFY, it knocks me out due to high call volume. My taxpayer advocate sucks she doesn’t call back in her allotted time frame and is very rude. I haven’t heard from her in over a week when she told me she would send in an inquiry to expedite my process.
    3/23 – Six weeks later and guess what? STILL NO REFUND! Where’s my refund saying “Still processing. Date will be provided…blah blah blah” I called the regular line and she told me that my process is now in the hands of my advocate. So I called her and no answer of course. I left a message.

    All I have to say is FUCK the IRS!
    -Pissed Taxpayer



    Hi Bart its me Angel again so today I called the irs again o talked to a nice man he did some research and saw that everything had been verified since feb 4th and my six week mark was up so he said that he was sending a referral to the review department so that they can go ahead an send my money is this lagit how long will it take will that help them to go ahead and send me my refund??

    Hi Bart,
    Finally got a sort of update: .I filed 2/2 bars went missing 2/20 then around 3/1 I got 2 letters in the same envelope from IRS requesting I do ID Verify, Transcripts updated last Thur. night, finally able to see all 4 transcripts. Account transcript has the 150 tax return filed, 768 EIC, then 570 Add’l action pending -$0 -so wondering if maybe that 570 was for the ID Verify, which I did online? I only update once a week, usually on Thursday night. with both transcripts and WMR. Cycle is 20151105 Date by the 570 is 4-6



    Hi bart. Maybe you could help me.
    I recieved a cp05 later but the yes told me to call them today. When I did I was informed that they can’t verify my income and there’s nothing I can do. They literally said that i can’t do anything. I just don’t know what’s going on. I talked to my employer Abd our accountant and they both said all the infirmation is in.



    HI! BART,
    I also have code 20151005 with 846 code . Its for my amended return. Of course they have to mail a check, I was wondering when I would expect to get my check. I didnt know if they are mailed out on fridays or at end of month. It says my account was adjusted 3/18. Thanks, casey



    Hi I been got a accepted on January 16 I was able to see my transcript on February 13,2015 still stuck on 1 bar since February 13,2015 I also got a 4464c letter in the mail january 30,2015 I got codes on my transcript is 150,806,766,768,570,570 and I also got a cycle code that is 20150605 with beside it 3-2-15




    Thanks for your patience and time, I have followed and watched you help several people. I filed and was accepted 1/23 ,the irs states my tax return began processing on 2/3 which is around the time my bars disappeared. I was able to see my transcripts for the first time 2/6. All the normal codes with code 570 at the end, no other codes following such as 971. I was told by two irs reps that I was not being reviewed. However I looked at my 2013 transcripts and I have a 922 with the date 3-16-15 next to it. I also have an as of date for interest of 3/23/15. I rcvd cp2000 on 3/19/15 with an amount owed for the previous year. I called back and was told my 2013 shouldn’t affect my 2014. Is that true? Because it looks as if it has affected my tax return and according to the irs manual if there is an open investigation on a prior year return it will affect your return. I need my refund, I didn’t know it could be held this long.



    Question… I filed my taxes married filing joint. They sent notice of offset for husband. I filed for 8379 (injured spouse form). They received form 8379 on 2/19/2015…. I also at the same time filed a 1040x to amend my return as I got a w2 I had forgot about. My 1040x was received 2/19/2015 on 3/20/2015 the irs site says it was adjusted and to expect a notice in 3 weeks. I check my transcript which says

    code 971 injured spouse claim received 2/19/2015 $0.00
    code 971 injured spouse claim received 2/19/2014 $0.00
    code 971 notice sent 3/30/2015 $0.00

    I’m confused as to one why it says 3/30/2015 when its only the 22nd. Also does this mean I am or am not going to get the offset reversed or changed. My husbands income was maybe a total of 900 out of the whole amount. Our refund was decent an it was quite a let down to not get it. Now its the waiting game and I am so confused. I filed the innocent spouse form for state and my state refund minus $119 came in a couple weeks ago. After noticing the offset we spent all day on the phone with the irs and the debt and the irs said to file form 1040x with form 8379 so we did. The debt my husband owed informed him I should be eligible for at least half the refund as it was mostly my income. The debt also mad payment arrangements with my husband and put a cancel on the request for the money. I am so confused been waiting and waiting and know nothing.



    Hi Bart
    My taxes was filed on 2/17
    I got a code 150: 2015095 3/23/2015
    806: 4/15/2015
    And when I spoke to a rep they said they mailed me a 4446c letter which i haven’t seen in my mailbox. Should i be worried?


    In the dark

    Hello, BartD. Had hoped not to bother you; our situation was similar to a couple of people we were following on here but now has diverged, so must ask for myself.

    Filed/Accepted Jan 30 with TT. Bars disappeared a week later replaced by “return is still being processed… date will be provided when available”. Tried to get transcripts online and got message to call ID Protection.

    Gave up trying to call, so Feb 19 went down to IRS local office. Nice lady told us we were “unpostable” and return was “in errors” but she would put in a note that we verified ID and address change. After no update on WMR, returned the next week and re-verified ID and address. Told 6-8 weeks from Feb 19.

    Mar 4th was finally able to order Account transcript by mail to new address. Received Mar 13 and it said to call ID Protection. Still cannot order Return transcript. No letters (sent to old address?)

    No change on WMR and wanted better answers, so called twice, second rep finally said was in review because of high refund vs low income (due to working low wage jobs but qualifying for EIC), we would be unable to get transcripts until done processing, and would take 8 weeks from Feb 13.

    Questions are: Would it help to be proactive again and bring W2s and birth certs to local office? Where did the date Feb 13 come from? Will it really be April 10 before we get our refund? Never got a letter so if we hadn’t seen this website we would never have known to get transcripts or do ID verify. And without transcripts, how do we know if there’s something else we need to do? If we keep calling, will they get annoyed and stick us back in the bottom of the pile?



    Thanks Bard. I got the second bar on 03/19, said the refund would be sent on 03/23..surprisingly I got the refund on 03/20. Hooray!!! So I bought a car on the same day..



    Hey Bart. I talked to an irs rep yesterday and she told me that the hold is still scheduled to be released on Monday March 23. Do you think she was lying? Cause like you said my as of date has changed 2 weeks in a row. So why would my hold be released?



    hello again bart just another crucial piece of advice i hope you can help me with. I have talked to the irs 2 times this month. I have been under review starting 01/28/2015 and the agent told me both times they dont need anything from me. That I should be done 3/30. Could this be accurate or should I obtain a TA



    hi bart d,

    i finally was able to view my return transcript on 3/7 and also account finally updated from n/a. i have code 570 with date 3/23 assuming from id verify which i completed on 2/27.. as of date changed from 3/23 to 4/6 today with processing and 570date staying 3/23. When do you think i will see a ddd? filed on 1/27



    irina i would call there is an issue with ur tax return and possible offset

    justasking u should get it within 3 weeks i hope everything goes better for u

    kayla u should get it next Wednesday congrats

    zach anytime but mostly fridays and and yes it can make dailies in to weekly

    dianam it will change as a return is being worked on and yes i would call because the date is changing so there might be a chance that ur hold won’t be removed on the 23

    crispy means ur getting a letter and it will be sent out no later than 3/30

    tamara they are reviewing your return and verifying what u put on there is accurate

    juan TA if they do there job can make it go faster but it usually takes about 5 weeks

    getting impatient they may or may not request proof from you. if they don’t then u should be done within 2 more weeks unless they want proof of ur marriage and son then ur looking at another 6 weeks

    jojo1129 well for one u need to speak to an agent and i would go to to see if u are frozen for id verification i would also try checking your transcripts online as well… at this point there is an issue with ur return and u need to find out what

    lin no it means u will get it next week

    anne thats a good thing i looks like things are starting to move on your return you should see a refund in 2 weeks if your not under review if that helps



    Bart: Filed 1/20.. my transcripts were updated on 2/28 with codes 570, 810,811. Then next week got 971 as well – notice issued (with the date 3/23).. since that time NOTHING (two weeks and counting). Didn’t get any notice, have no idea what’s in it:((
    Any thoughts, please? Thank you!



    Info typo my ta called 3/11



    Bart: I filed 1/20 and was under review called a ta and I had to amend my return so my ta called 3/4 and told me that my amended return was approved and I should receive my return in 2 weeks. My transcripts updated on 3/16 with codes 971 and 977 so I called today the ta hotline and was told that my amended return was Adjusted on 3/18 I also had code 570 date 3/9 but she also said it was lifted my question is do you think I will get a DDD soon since it was adjusted? Me and my two kids really need it to move into a place my ex was abusive and we was in a shelter until he left my home but when I came back home he took everything including the pictures on the wall can u enlighten me please and thanks



    I now have an 846 code finally after 2 months with cycle code 20151105 when do you think I should get my refund?



    How does the cp53a influence transcripts updating? I know some people are daily and some are weekly. Does this mean I will only see updates to transcripts on Fridays, or since they are just sending a paper check, can it be any time?

    Im about at the end of my rope with these people- this is ridiculous.



    Hey Bart. I have a question.I filed on 1/20 and was accepted the same day. I idverified myself on 2/24. 3 days later my account transcript updated from all zeros to 150 806 570. I know the 570 is a refund hold which I am assuming is from the idverify. Anyway I talked to an irs rep last thursday on 3/12 and she told me that the hold is scheduled to be automatically released on monday 3/23 and then I should get my ddd. Then the next day on friday 3/13 the as of date changed from 3/16 to 3/30. Now one week later which is today 3/20 my as of date changed again from 3/30 to 4/6. Now I know the as of date don’t mean anything, but do you have any idea as to why my as of date would change 2 weeks in a row. Usually it changes every 2 weeks. And should I call back even though the lady told me that the hold is scheduled to be released on 3/23. Thanks in advance.



    I have a code 971 issue sent 3302015. what does this mean?


    Tamara Jefferson


    I’m really worried. I recieved a CP05 letter today. I contacted my tax preparer and he stated alot of people have been getting this letter because of the Turbo Tax breach. I’m not sure about this… It says I don’t need to do anything but what are they doing??



    Bart, I wrote before to you weeks ago. My summary: filed on 1/10, bars disappeared on 2/2. ID verify on 2/9. 5 weeks after 3/5 received a 4664c that my tax is under review. Immediately I proceed to obtain a TA I sent earnings w2 paystub and my economical hardship letter. She called me confirmed that received docs and will call me next 3/31. 4664c says review will take 60 days but with TA I think that time will shorten to 3-4 weeks. What is your opinion about TAs help or not to shortens the time? I sent my w2 and paystub from my employer the refund corresponds to me and my family. How many weeks would take it? Thanks



    Hello Bart,

    I filed on 1/20 and had a ddd of 2/11 that came and went with no deposit, on 2/12 I got the 1121 code on WMR. My transcripts had the following codes… 766,768,846,841. I did call the offset line and my spouse had an offset so I thought maybe that was what was delaying my refund however I didn’t have any other codes after the 841. I sent in an injured spouse form and it was updated as received on my transcript last Thursday with a date of 03-03-2015. Do you have any insight on when I might see my refund? I have called the IRS a few times but they just tell me I am in review. This is also the first year filing with married and with my son.




    Hi Bart, here’s my story…I won a large sum in the lottery last year…overpaid estimated tax…I am expecting a sizable refund….had no other income…nothing in collections or offset….My Federal & state accepted 2/20…received State refund on 3/7….I can access Transcripts, but there is absolutely nothing on it…no codes, no numbers, nothing. On WWR, I keep getting the standard…your refund is still being processed…a refund date will be available, blah, blah. I cannot for the life of me get through to the IRS for a real person…any ideas of what I should do? I’ve always filed, have the same info on my filings…haven’t moved, etc. I’m so picking sick of this, I can’t sleep…



    Hello Bart,

    I’ve filed on Feb 5th using TT & accepted next day. But just like the most of people here, WMR bar has gone off around 02/15 w/ just generic message since then. I’ve never had any code on WMR nor rec’d any mail from IRS. I had no transcript until this Monday which I was only able to see WAGE & INCOME for 2014 – others are still N/A. Even for the wage & income, I only can see mine, not my wife’s W2 information.
    Is this normal although we’ve filed married joint?
    Should she create her own log in to see her transcript?
    We’ve even tried to log in w/ my wife’s information, but the screen said can’t verify the tax information…and locked out.

    Also just now, I checked WMR again(after my wife’s transcript log in has locked out), and the screen said it can not verify my tax data & asked me to verify few things – approximated filing date & if I’ve filed by electronically or by mail. After I’ve answered the questions & submitted, the next screen said still can not verify & to check w/ tax preparer or software company, and to verify if I’ve received accepted e-mail(which I’ve rec’d from TT a day or two after filing date). So, I’ve logged out & re-submitted, and now it went back to the generic message – Your return is still being processed….

    Should I worried now?
    Should I try to call IRS to speak w/ real person or even visit local IRS office?

    Thanks in advance



    Hi, Bart.
    I still only have one bar, but I can see my tax return transcript, and record of account.
    It shows some confusing dates:
    150 tax return filed 4-6-15
    and 846 issued refund 4-6-15
    I filed my return and got accepted on 3/7. Does it mean i will get my refund on 4/6?




    I was not been able to view my transcript up until today, I have the help of a TA and she told me transcript would not update for me. But when I check today I see my wage transcript has updated with my W2 and one of my husband W2. I did have to ID verift 4 weeks ago. Does this mean someone is working on my return. Also, my employee told me a request was sent to verify income. My TA or the rep I spoke with never mentioned i was under review. I just need some hope are at least a little insight if whats going on



    angle u just have to hang in there if nothing else is on ur account u will have ur money soon

    kayla I would call back!!

    chris if they are also reviewing ur return it takes the longer part of the 6-8 weeks

    mosstrap well if u sent them something it takes up to 6 weeks for them to release ur refund if they are happy with what u sent in.. ur wont get anything till they clear the 570

    meya1908 first one shows a delay in processing return 2nd shows the return was re entered into the system and started processing from the beginning


    ZACH yes wmr will update and yes u should have it anytime!!

    NO $$ 8 weeks sorry

    Punda Smith well u had an offset for 2011 taxes and they placed what ever amount to the offset and sent or are sending u a notice. as for the remainder of the money if any u should get 2 weeks or less

    marie 3-4 weeks from when the notice is actually sent



    Kayla when did you file? Did you ever get a letter? I have the same issue with two 570 codes and I wonder if i should call again??



    Hi Bart!! Ok I filed my taxes on jan 20 an got excepted time went by so I called feb 4th and I had to verify my id so they can process it so I passed my id verify an was told it would take 4 to 6 weeks to get my refund im now at my 6 week mark so I called bk today to see what was going on the rep was nice an she reviewed my account and she said that there wasn’t any other letters sent out other than the one they sent for id verify and that friday would make my 6 weeks what do YU think would happen now that she said she didn’t see anything on the account and that they wasn’t asking for anything from me an my six weeks are up friday??



    I have a question I called Monday to the IRS talked to someone about my second 570 code on my transcripts and the person I talked to fixed the problem and said she released my refund and said I could expect my refund within a week but my transcripts and WMR are still the same nothing has changed on either. Do you think she really released my refund or should I call back?




    ID Verified 2/20 and still nothing.
    Transcripts still have all 0s with as of date Mar 16th.
    WMR still has nothing.

    Any input on this?

    I’ve called twice since ID verified and both say 6-8 weeks…



    Hi Bart, I got one more question.. Based on this information when do you think I will receive my refund.

    Code 150, cycle, 20151005, date 03-30-2015, Amount $125.00
    Code 806, date 04-15-2015
    Code 766, credit to your account, date 04-15-2015 Amount -$$$$$$$
    Code 766, “. ” date “. ” Amount -$$$$$$$
    Code 971, Notice sent, date 03-30-2015 Amount 0000. (I mailed the notice back on 02-19-2015)
    Code 570 additional account action pending, Date 03-30-2015. (Transcript available on 03-1102015)

    When will I receive my refund Bart ?? Or is there any other thoughts regarding this?? Thanks a million.



    What is the difference in the messages that WMR updates?? if Any

    Your tax return is still being processed.
    A refund date will be provided when available.

    We have received your tax return and it is being processed.




    You’re proven correct, Bart! My refund has been deposited this morning, March 18, 2015 just as you predicted (based on the 20151005 transcript code). This Friday would have marked 9 weeks that I’ve had to wait for our refund since filing and having the filing accepted on Friday, January 23, 2015! It’s been a long slog, but I can finally pay those bills and I couldn’t be happier!

    Thanks a mil, Bart, and to others here still waiting, please don’t give up hope. I wish you all good luck and hope that next year will be better.



    Thanks for all the answers man.
    One last question, so I can be completely clear on everything.
    The CP53A letter date was 2-23.
    I should have the check anytime then based on your saying it’s typically 2-4 weeks from that date?

    Also, will transcripts update when it is sent, or are they like WMR and may not ever update?
    Just trying to get a better idea on when to expect to FINALLY have my refund. Thanks!



    Hey Bart,
    I filed at the end of January, but found out that someone had claimed one of my dependents so I mailed my return priority mail, but then received a form with my return attached on 2/19, I forgot to sign it. I then express mailed it they got it the next day. But on WMR I was received on 3/3, since I have been filing for my son since his birth, how long will it be and I also elected DD, my transcript is also available with a 971 and 570 code


    No $$ yet

    I had to do an amended return and have a TA, first they never return my call and feel they are no help, but from what I understand it was sent/recvd on the 4th of March, what’s the waiting time now? I originally filed back in January, does the return now just sit on someone’s desk or does it go thru whole process again?

    Hi Bart,

    I wrote earlier and thanks for all your replies. to recap, I filed on 2/20, and on weekly cycle: 20150905.
    All I have on my transcript is a set of codes: 150, 806, 766, 826 and 971. 

    But I see a lot of March 23rds on my transcript, as indicated below – it has been there since the first set of transcripts appeared about two weeks ago. What do they signify?

    — Account Balance: $$Amount: As of March 23, 2015
    — Accrued Penality: SSAmount: As of March 23
    — 826 Credit transferred out to 1040 201112; 03-23-2015; $$Amount:
    — 971 Notice Issued: 03-23-2015: $$Amount

    As always, we appreciate your responses.

    thanks – Punda
