Just went in this morning at 9:45 to get my taxes done at h&r block and federal was accepted at 10:35. No update on state so far. We will see.
- February 29, 2016 at 7:36 am #4144620
hoping I will get an update sometime this week, got my return transcript in the mail
20160705 was my cycle code and there were no other error codes or anything.February 25, 2016 at 10:29 pm #4143990
I received a letter in the mail on Feb 22. Stated that my form 8962 was missing from my return. So I faxed everything back to them 2/24. Has anyone else received this letter about healthcare. And has anyone received their refund yet. I’m beginning to think that when the system crashed that they lost any and all returns they may have been working on at that time. Also stated that I had to send 2nd page of form 1040 to them as well.February 20, 2016 at 9:07 am #4142553
Will child support take money before dd are after dd got a date of wed 24February 20, 2016 at 9:02 am #4142548
Could it be???
I filed 1/25 and was accepted same day within an hour
I had one bar until 1/27 when it disappeared along with my refund amount
and tax topic 152 appeared.
it stayed that same way until last saturday or the day before, I can’t remember.
the amount returned and tt 152 disappeared.
throughout this whole process I have not been able to order either transcripts, although I can use my old address to order past years transcripts.
when I called the customer service line they 2/17 told me that there was a small error in my account which was corrected and there were no letters sent out and nothing to do on my part.
She said that I should expect it within the next week or two
Hopefully she is correct and I today am starting to believe it!
Finally able to order return transcript today 2/20!February 18, 2016 at 12:52 am #4141485
Never got a letter just called on my 21st dayFebruary 17, 2016 at 8:53 am #4141051
So I decided to call the IRS this morning because my 21 days have been up for a couple days now (filed and accepted 1/25)
I had one bar until 1/27 when it disappeared along with my refund amount
and tax topic 152 appeared.
it stayed that same way until either yesterday or the day before, I can’t remember.
the amount returned and tt 152 disappeared.
throughout this whole process I have not been able to order either transcripts, although I can use my old address to order past years transcripts.
today when I called the customer service line they told me that there was a small error in my account which was corrected and there were no letters sent out and nothing to do on my part.
She said that I should expect it within the next week or two
Hopefully she is telling me the truth =/ I hate waiting this long, i’ve had two years that I had to wait until june and july, last year it was only two weeks though..February 16, 2016 at 9:03 pm #4140872
I’m seeing a lot of people that have been “selected”. I almost want to call BS. I know the IRS is under staffed and they’ve had their share of problems this year.
As previously posted, I was flagged for having 3 W2’s. Even though the guy I was talking to was nice to talk to, I’m wondering if we’re getting excuses while they play catch-up… It doesn’t make sense that he would have mentioned a program to help if not getting my refund when expected is available for financial hardship…
I would much rather hear that they fell behind than I’m being reviewed for keeping a job (2 of the W2’s were for the same job, the original employer got bought out in February and began bombing in July and I got out in November).
I guess getting pissed won’t help matters, so I’ll wait as I’m not completely broke.February 15, 2016 at 11:13 pm #4140353
@ grace… did you get a letter in the mail?February 15, 2016 at 3:47 pm #4140214
Filed and accepted jan. 25th. Lost bar’s last Friday but I still have the topic 152. Today is the 21st say. So I called and asked if I needed to do an id verification and I did. I did my verification online due to it being a holiday. She told me it can take up to 6weeks. Yet other people have been getting them within 2 weeks. Hoping for the best. Did anyone else do a online id verification?February 15, 2016 at 1:50 pm #4140186
Spoke with an agent this morning. Hour and ten minutes on hold another half hour talking to the agent. I filed on the 25th “accepted” the same day. Bars disappeared and wmr says refund date will be provided when avail. Agent said I was chosen for an additional review and to give until March 1st. She said there are more identity issues being addressed than ever before. I asked if she sees anything I need to do and she said she cannot know that until March 1st. But I could see the refund anytime and keep checking daily. Anyone else have any luck today?February 15, 2016 at 10:57 am #4140076
I talked to someone at the IRS today as today was day 21. Apparently it can take me up to 2 months to get anything back because I was flagged for having three W2’s this year… Okay then…February 15, 2016 at 6:47 am #4139961
Here it is, day 21. According to the IRS website, they’ll be open from 7-7 today. I’ll definitely be calling to see what’s up. My bars are still missing but I do still have the tax topic 152 and I was able to order transcripts.February 14, 2016 at 8:38 am #4139722
Woke up to an update this morning, not really sure if it’s a good one though.
Have been sitting at no bars since 1/27 and I filed 1/25 accepted same day
Today the tt 152 disappeared as well.
What does that meanFebruary 13, 2016 at 3:04 pm #4139538
My bars also went away with the message that a date would be provided once available. I am also able to order both account and return transcripts with my new address. Is this a good thing?February 12, 2016 at 7:58 am #4138348
So not only did us 1 25ers get stuck in the loop, President day is Monday so we actually have to wait till Tuesday, ie,22 days,not 21…..February 12, 2016 at 6:19 am #4138301
No more bars just this..
Your tax return is still being processed.
A refund date will be provided when available.
The irs is open on Monday and this Saturday the 13th 9am to 5pm. Monday is a holiday but it’s the busiest week of tax season go figureFebruary 11, 2016 at 10:48 pm #4138186
I really hope those of us accepted on 1/25 get some sort of update soon… Even though I’m not depending on my refund for anything major, it would be nice to maybe use some to pay down my car or pay something ahead.
All of this waiting with zero updates is starting to kill me…February 11, 2016 at 7:18 pm #4138112
Still no movement ,filed on 1-25,just one bar and can’t order a transcript. …
So the kicker? The 21 day mark is Monday the 15th and the IRS is closed…so I actually gotta wait 22 days ……February 11, 2016 at 6:54 pm #4138107
Here we go I filed 1/24 around 9am via tax preparer. I was officially accepted 1/25. I have been stuck on 1 bar ever since. I contacted irs and the tax advocate last week. Each person gave the a new meaning to stone wall. This may be someone else problem this is why I’m sharing. I somehow over the past couple years ended up with identity theft on my account. Basically anytime I need transcripts I have to go into the irs to get them. Mind you I have a daughter in college who needs them. I always have to take the day off to get transcripts. Today I have been reading about the id verify and the light bulb lit up. I moved last year so there is no way I would have received a letter. I never had to verify before. My 21 days will be up Monday so I said what heck lets call in and see if I need to. Low and behold I verified my identity today. The lady was nice, she verified my identity and then said she release my refund. The next statement was I will recieve either the refund or a letter within 9 weeks. I said letter, what kind of letter???? She then stated don’t worry about the letter you will get your money in 1 to 2 weeks. Will keep you posted hope this may help someone in a similar boat.February 11, 2016 at 12:42 pm #4137906
Still no movement on 1/25 filing date. Called this morning IRS rep would not give any details said to call back when 21 days are up. No offsets and able to order transcripts last week. Anyone heard anything? I have one bar saying they have received the refund. Ive not received any letters either. Very frustrating!February 11, 2016 at 12:22 am #4137524
I filed and accepted 1/27 still only 1 bar as of now 12:22am :(. Turbo taxed updated new message. Anyone else still waiting??February 10, 2016 at 9:37 pm #4137469
Everybody who is in the accepted 1/25 and still no movement on WMR boat – I feel your pain. I understand security measures but this is painfully slow.
I feel that they’re quick to take money out of each paycheck, they should make our refunds just as slick as well.
Here’s hoping we get some sort of movement soon (but I doubt…)February 10, 2016 at 8:08 pm #4137400
1/25 – Filed and accepted with TT
2/5 – ordered return transcript
2/6 – WMR updated
2/10 – DDD
2/10 – Money in my bank accountFebruary 10, 2016 at 6:50 pm #4137370
Filed: 1/26 (turbotax)
Your refund is being processed….since 1/27
Return Transcript ordered: 2/5
Still no movement on WMR and no DD either.
I thought if I was able to order my return transcript that meant my refund had been processed? So why the delay in DDD and movement on the WMR? Can a tax advocate look at my account even though it hasn’t been the 21 days?February 10, 2016 at 5:13 pm #4137319
I filed 1-25 also and cant even order a transcript yet.
1 bar and Ive been there since the 25….sheesh/February 10, 2016 at 10:03 am #4136856
Return Transcript: 2/5
SBTPG: 2/9 SBBT received my funds from the treasury (Filing fee taken out of tax return)

WMR: Still at 2 bars
If your still waiting on your deposit it will be there soon…more than likely sometime throughout the day…a lot of refunds went out todayFebruary 10, 2016 at 9:21 am #4136794
Has anyone that had a DDD of 2/10 gotten their money? So far the WMR is still on the 2nd bar.
I’m going to be so mad if it isn’t on there soon!February 9, 2016 at 3:22 pm #4135586
because of the extra security steps taken this year…you would imagine that someone who has been use to just pressing buttons to get a return process and have a hard time this year getting it through the system…old habit can be hard to break…i thing what we are seeing to how its suppose to be….you can ready a few article online saying how the days of fast returns are going due to the tax fraud and identity theft that has been happening…the longer wait is protecting us…good thing IRS is sticking by their 21 day rule….I think we have just been spoiled over the last few years….I ordered account transcripts after I filed and receved it in the mail yesterday… if there was a problem you would know it…..you’ll be hearing something soon if you haven’t yetFebruary 9, 2016 at 2:52 pm #4135522
No movement since on wmr and no transcript available

?Updated IRS Statement
Feb. 4, 2016 – 6 p.m. EST
The IRS announced it resumed processing individual and business tax returns at approximately 5 p.m. Thursday following resolution of its system outage. Many of the tools and applications came up earlier on Thursday morning, including “Where’s My Refund” on IRS.gov.
“IRS teams worked throughout the night and around the clock on this system outage,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said. “Our processing systems are back in business. Taxpayers should see little, if any, impact on their tax returns or refunds. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused, and we appreciate the support and patience from taxpayers as well as our partners in the tax community and state revenue departments.”
The IRS emphasized that taxpayers do not need to take any additional steps or action due to the outage, including people who filed just before or during the outage. Throughout this period, taxpayers were able to continue to send their tax returns to their e-file provider; these companies have already started sending these tax returns into the IRS.
Taxpayers who have received a specific refund date from the “Where’s My Refund?” tool on IRS.gov should not be affected by the outage. The IRS reminds taxpayers that many variables factor into processing of tax refunds, including fraud prevention efforts, but we continue to anticipate that nine out of 10 taxpayers will receive their refunds within 21 days after being accepted by the IRS. In addition, the IRS reminds taxpayers that IRS.gov remains the best place to check for information on refunds. Additional information is available at: https://www.irs.gov/Refunds/What-to-Expect-for-Refunds-This-Year
The IRS is continuing to examine the underlying cause of the outage yesterday as well as monitoring any follow-up issues. It’s important to note that at this time this situation appears to be a hardware failure.February 4, 2016 at 7:42 pm #4129255
I also filed 1/25 accepted less then an hour after filing. Still on one bar. I called IRS today, a nice but confused sounding woman told me she couldn’t find my return but said because it was being processed….February 4, 2016 at 7:32 pm #4129244
I usually don’t comment on these posts, just come to stay updated but i see a lot of people with the same issue as me. I filed 1/25, spoke a woman at the irs today and she said not only did they not receive my return until the 27th but mine along with 100s of others was selected for further review and i should add another week onto the 21 days. It doesn’t mean it will take this long but it doesn’t mean it won’t eitherFebruary 4, 2016 at 2:48 pm #4128871
I filed 1/18/16 fed accepted 1/19/16 and still on 1 bar.February 4, 2016 at 1:28 pm #4128738
Filed on 1/24/16 late at night. Accept on 1/25/16 wasn’t seeing any progress until this morning when my return was approved and says will be refunded via DD by 2/8/16.February 4, 2016 at 1:11 pm #4128708
I filed mine on 01/27 with turbo tax and it was accepted, just about an hour later. Where is my refund page is still on the first bar too… I am really hoping that the 02/05 date is correct? Has anyone that filed on the 27th received theirs back yet?February 4, 2016 at 1:00 pm #4128687
Chelsea. I filed mine on 1/26. Still at one bar on wmr and still can’t order return transcript. I’m reading a lot that some people aren’t getting updates from wmr but will still get DDD of 2/5. Just check your bank account tomorrow to be sure. I’m not expecting mine until next week…just so I don’t get my hopes up.February 4, 2016 at 12:48 pm #4128656
I used turbo tax. Filed mine on January 27th and federal was accepted a few hours later. Going by the calendar on the irs website, I should get mine tomorrow 2/5. My bar is still on the first part. Anyone that filed theirs thru turbotax on jan 27th, what does it say for you? I need that money bad cuz I have to move and have no money for the deposit.February 4, 2016 at 9:47 am #4128376
I filed with TT 1/25 and accepted same day. Stuck at one bar! I just want a DDD!!!February 4, 2016 at 8:44 am #4128292
I filed 1/25 with TA. Paid fee with credit card. Accepted within a few minutes. Have been at 1 bar…until this morning. WMR shows DDD date of Feb 8. I have to say I was a little concerned after last night’s news story.February 4, 2016 at 3:27 am #4128080

Feb. 3, 2016
The IRS experienced a hardware failure this afternoon affecting a number of tax processing systems, which are currently unavailable. Several of our systems are not currently operating, including our modernized e-file system and a number of other related systems. The IRS is currently in the process of making repairs and working to restore normal operations as soon as possible. We anticipate some of the systems will remain unavailable until tomorrow.
The IRS remains in close contact with e-file software transmitters and the tax community during this period.
A number of taxpayer and tax practitioner tools are unavailable. IRS.gov remains available, although a number of the services on the site are not, including Where’s My Refund.
Taxpayers can continue to prepare and file their tax returns as they normally would. Taxpayers can continue to send their tax returns to their e-file provider; these companies will hold the tax returns until the IRS resumes accepting electronic tax returns. Taxpayers who have already filed their tax returns do not need to take any additional action.
The IRS is still assessing the scope of the outage. At this time, the IRS does not anticipate major refund disruptions; we continue to expect that 9 out of 10 taxpayers will receive their refunds within 21 days.February 3, 2016 at 11:21 pm #4127972
Hopefully that doesn’t affect those who previously filed but honestly I’m getting the feeling that it’s going to take the full 21 days if not more..February 3, 2016 at 10:28 pm #4127905
WASHINGTON (AP) — The IRS stopped accepting electronically filed tax returns Wednesday because of problems with some of its computer systems. The outage could affect refunds, but the agency said it doesn’t anticipate “major disruptions.”
A “hardware failure” forced the shutdown of several tax processing systems, including the e-file system, the IRS said in a statement. The IRS.gov website remains available, but “where’s my refund” and other services are not working.
Some systems will be out of service at least until Thursday, the agency said. “The IRS is currently in the process of making repairs and working to restore normal operations as soon as possible,” the IRS said.
Taxpayers can continue to send electronic returns to companies that serve as middlemen between taxpayers and the IRS. But those companies have to hold on to the tax returns until the IRS systems are up and running again, the IRS said.
While the IRS said it is still assessing the scope of the outage, it expects 90% of taxpayers will receive refunds within three weeks.
People who have already filed returns don’t need to do anything more, the IRS said.February 3, 2016 at 5:55 pm #4127583
I hope we can expect the 2/5 date to hold up..February 3, 2016 at 4:43 pm #4127518
“Bonnie” sure, he’s entitled to an opinion, however, he doesn’t have to come on here and attempt to shame people. Haven’t you ever heard if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything? Everyone is on here for the same reasons; looking for answers, upset about how long it is taking this year. It seems that is the purpose for this page, to gather information and network with others who are in the same boat. I think what I said previously about skipping over what doesn’t apply to you only makes sense.February 3, 2016 at 4:10 pm #4127472

I filed on the 25th, said it was accepted same day but when I called yday they said they received it on the 27th. I did not claim the AOC credit so I wonder what the hold up is

Filed 1/25 accepted 1/25 dd 2/3 recv refund today mine still says waiting to be sentFebruary 3, 2016 at 9:50 am #4126851
I filed on the 25th, and from reading on here heard some grumblings about re-sequencing and the American Opportunity Credit causing delays, I called yesterday and was told I was re-cycled. I didn’t get any extra information from that agent and just left the conversation knowing j was going to be delayed. Decided to call this morning and find out more information. I first asked her when I was accepted and if that was the same day as them receiving it and she said yes it is. I asked about the AOC and she did say that some people who filed the credit were being reviewed since people would claim the credit and not have the 1098T. Then I asked how long does that usually delay the process and she said for me it would only be another week, as long as nothing else popped up. At the end of the conversation after I mentioned the delay of a week again she said “so from the 27th, is that the day you filed?” And I said no I filed on the 25th, which confirmed the 24-48 delay in accept and receiving that I asked her about earlier.
TL;DR: Even though we filed on 1/25, they probably didn’t actual accept it until the 27th. If you filed the American Oppprtunith Credit, you may be being reviewed.February 3, 2016 at 9:37 am #4126812
Filed and accepted on 1/25/16 – 1 freakin bar!February 3, 2016 at 8:53 am #4126705
I got accepted Jan 26th and nothing yet,no approval,im a first timer in filing.February 3, 2016 at 8:02 am #4126591
TT has updated to 20% of people that have filed on 1/25 has received. I’m not one of the lucky 20% this round, but congrats to those who may have received already.February 3, 2016 at 3:19 am #4126283
You obviously took the time to read and post here Bob, so shut the fuck up.February 3, 2016 at 1:16 am #4126205
Bob shut up your pathetic for taking the time to read all this bs tFebruary 2, 2016 at 11:28 pm #4126112
@bonnie Are you Bob? (didn’t think to hard on the name?)
Katrina is right! Bob is it hurting you that we are calling the IRS? Everyone understand that the time-frame is 21 DAYS but were hoping for a date before than!!!! This is our money so we can do what ever to find out what is going on!February 2, 2016 at 11:20 pm #4126099
@katrina, bob is entitled to his opinion, as are you.February 2, 2016 at 11:18 pm #4126097
Bob, piss off. If they wanna call 100 times a day, it’s not your concern. If they post every hour on here to vent or whatever, it’s not YOUR concern. Just look over what doesn’t apply to you. Worry about yourself. You don’t know the situation everyone is in, they’ve worked all year for it.February 2, 2016 at 10:40 pm #4126045
You people that call the IRS (and repeatedly) before the 21 day time frame, and check WMR all day, are fucking pathetic. You’ll get your money.
Yea, it’s taking longer than last year as they had massive budget cuts that resulted in a hell of a lot less employees to process MILLIONS of returns.
Take a fucking break and go do something productive. If it hasn’t been 21 days since you were accepted (starting on the 19th) stop fucking calling them!!!February 2, 2016 at 10:38 pm #4126040
I filed 1-25 & was accepted 1-25 as well. I can order my account transcript but not my return. So u think we will get an update tonite??? Keep us posted pleaseFebruary 2, 2016 at 12:06 pm #4125368
I filed 1/22 and still no dd was able to order my account transcript but not my return hoping to get that 2nd bar soonFebruary 2, 2016 at 10:51 am #4125254
Filed and accepted 1/25. Missouri State was deposited this morning. WMR on 1 Bar, TT152, Etc. Was able to order account trannys under hubbys ssn yesterday under our old address. Now it is not accepting either address so I cannot check for return tranny. Wondering if that’s a good sign or no, since they could be updating address information possibly. Checked for things under my ssn but ofcourse he is primary so I have to use his. Starting to get frustrated. Was hoping for a DDD of 2/5 but who knows now.February 1, 2016 at 7:37 pm #4124511
I filed the the 25th everything was accepted the 26th I only have one bar online. I tried to get my transcripts and it wasn’t available so I called and they had to update my address but said they should be available to everyone by the 9th of February because they didn’t start processing til the 19th. I asked if anything else was wrong he said no I just got off the phone at 730 est 2/1/16February 1, 2016 at 3:25 pm #4124307
Alright, so I called the IRS today because I received a letter from Indiana DOR to verify my identity further. I completed the quiz and now it seems my state is actually doing something. Last year o hadnto do the same thing but I already had my federal refund before I got the letter from Indiana. So I decided this year to call because I have not received any updates. Unable to order transcripts with new address , still have 1 bar and same tax topic as always. So long story short I called the IRS, the nice guy I talked to said that I had been resequenced by a week. He said it could be sooner but the resequence could be because of my refund over 5k or change of address etc, so maybe next week I will see some movement.February 1, 2016 at 11:10 am #4124035
Seem like if you filed early they are not approving and getting Dds only people who filed after 1-20-16… I filed on 1-14-2016 my 21 days are up. But still only one bar.January 31, 2016 at 12:46 pm #4122578
Yes @Tamika but from what I’ve been told you need to be able to order Return transcripts as well. Everyone is saying when you can order both you will receive a DD date the next day.January 31, 2016 at 12:31 pm #4122563
I’ve been checking wmr on and off every day and no updates still
no bars after having one for a day or say, the “your tax return is still being processed and a date will be given when available” message is still there.
no refund amount.
but it seems like every day it changes a couple times throughout the day the ability to order transcripts from prior years keeps coming and going.
haven’t been able to order anything using my current address, but every now and then when I check, I can use my previous address and get access to the transcripts menu, unable to order anything for this year.
lameJanuary 31, 2016 at 11:26 am #4122535
Checked this morning and I had tax tax topic 152 on the WMR site. Hopefully this is a good sign.January 31, 2016 at 10:28 am #4122503
@michelle are u able to order your account transcript?January 31, 2016 at 9:39 am #4122488
1 bar still processing
I went back and looked at my prior year returns, I always receive my refund about 6-10 days after filing. I think i always update on a Monday though. Do you all think there will be a big update tomorrow ?January 31, 2016 at 1:39 am #4122316
Hey I filed my taxes January 25 2016 & was accepted the 26th & I have only one bar on WMR & I cant get my transcript. Anybody else havin the same problem?January 30, 2016 at 5:23 pm #4122029
Filed the 25th, and was accepted within 5 minutes, on both State and Federal. However the bar has not moved to give a date, and state is still in “processing” mode.
Turbrotax though states between Jan 26th and Feb 15th.
Last year I had received my federal really fast, on Feb 4th, can’t remember exactly my filing date, but it was on day 6 that I got it at 2 am. State did not come till March 11th.
I don’t mind the wait on state, but wish federal bar changed and gave a date lol.January 30, 2016 at 12:39 pm #4120320
Filed on the 25th around noon. Accepted an hour later and have been one bar ever since. I have no offsets with no deductions just claiming single with an EIC credit. Very standard. NYS refund site says my refund is in the final stages of proccessing. Checked WMR and no update, although the past 2 years I have gotten my return in exactly 10 days.January 30, 2016 at 12:17 pm #4120293
Filed and accepted 1/25
Obtained Maryland state approval 1/29
1bar for federal as of a moment ago 1/30 with amount over 5k.January 30, 2016 at 11:18 am #4120238
Filed and accepted 1/25
Received two bars on wmr this morning. Ddd 2/3January 30, 2016 at 10:30 am #4120165
in previous years we could read our transcripts online and get our ddd before wmr would update.
This year they only allow mailing of them. The theory behind it is, if you can get your account transcript that means they are actually in the process of processing them or have processed them so your info is available. If you can also get your return transcript it should mean your done processing and have been approved for a ddd. So long story short, if you can order both you should have a ddd at the next wmr update, if not you won’t. But the ability to order one lets you know stuff is moving :)January 30, 2016 at 10:04 am #4120135
So just a little while earlier this morning was still able to use my old address to access my old transcripts but not my new ones for 2015, but now I cant use my new or old address to access anything..January 30, 2016 at 9:37 am #4120081
Im sorry if I sound retarded. But what does your transcript have to do with checking the status of your return? And what is an offset that I read you all talking about?January 30, 2016 at 9:05 am #4120037
Damn grats on those who got DDD
Filed 1/25 and accepted but still only 1 bar boooJanuary 30, 2016 at 8:45 am #4120016
Was able to order account transcript yesterday 1/29 and today it tells me info doesn’t match. I was hoping for a ddd this morning but woke up to be locked out of transcripts. Hopefully it means movement!January 30, 2016 at 7:07 am #4119920
dic hung lo
@nikki this is the number for offsets 1 800-304-3107January 30, 2016 at 6:44 am #4119912
Around 530 am I got a ddd of 2/3 I filed and was accepted on 1/25 unfortunately It now says tax topic 203 something about offsets who do I call about the amount of said offset?January 30, 2016 at 3:47 am #4119752
Received DDD of 2/3 shortly after midnight. Good luck to all of you!!January 30, 2016 at 12:49 am #4119652
PLEASE HELP anyone my question is has anyone that has been rejected by the IRS and told that your efile was not approved been able to order their new transcripts for this year?January 30, 2016 at 12:44 am #4119646
Just checked my transcripts and since I’ve filed it wouldn’t let me order any transcripts because my information didn’t match their records, I tried the two most recent addresses and nothing, but tonight right after midnight I got into the transcripts menu by using my old address but nothing available for this year . I wonder why this is..January 30, 2016 at 12:09 am #4119612
I filed with TurboTax on the 1/25 and was accepted both state and federal the same day. No changes yet. I cannot order a return transcript so I know it hasn’t been approved yet. Will update when I have an update.January 29, 2016 at 10:35 pm #4119539
Awesome!!! Mine would only take my old address yesterday but now it won’t take my old or my new. I am hoping that means it is processing and I get an update soon.January 29, 2016 at 9:55 pm #4119493
Still no update on wmr but was able to order my account transcripts!!January 29, 2016 at 9:30 pm #4119476
Still no new updates for me, got locked out today because I’m impatient and was really hoping for an update like other 1/25 filers but no luck for me…
I’m hopeful though, last year was the fastest refund I’ve gotten in three years as compared to a couple before that took until June or July.January 29, 2016 at 9:00 pm #4119444
@Roberta You don’t need to act like thatJanuary 29, 2016 at 8:44 pm #4119431
@Kim- don’t ask dumb questions and you won’t get dumb answers. We don’t know what state you live in, nor do we know their process. We aren’t psychics. Google it.January 29, 2016 at 7:59 pm #4119394
Filed tt on 1-22-2016 federal was accepted 1-22-2016 state got accepted 1-26-2016 anyone know when I should get my stateJanuary 29, 2016 at 1:32 pm #4119156
E-filed with HR block on 1/25/16
Accepted within 5 minutes
As of this morning WMR is still at one bar. I truly believe they only update once a week (this could be inaccurate, just my opinion) but last year I got my refund and bars never updated. Mine always takes about 2-3 weeks, I’ve never got a super fast return, lol. Good luck all!January 29, 2016 at 12:33 pm #4119091
Used Turbo Tax
DDD this morning of 2/2/16!
RECEIVED my state refund today (filed 1/25) for OREGON…

Filed and accepted 1-25 checked WMR site that night had 1 bar, just checked WMR site again and its unavailableJanuary 29, 2016 at 12:55 am #4118533
WMR hasn’t updated past the first bar for me ever until days after I had already received my refund. I also have always received my DD within 7 days of being accepted.
I’m nervous because yesterday and today the offset line said that my information wasn’t currently available but it said the same for my husband. Hope it’s not adding any offsets!January 29, 2016 at 12:35 am #4118524
Checked around 12:05am no new updates, still sitting at no bars saying my refund is still being processed. Hopefully me losing my bars is a sign I’m going to get an update?January 28, 2016 at 9:44 pm #4118483
@crystal My DDD for state is 2/2. It had to have updated some time today. I checked this am and then checked again tonight and it had a DDD.January 28, 2016 at 8:52 pm #4118469
I filed on the 25th and still haven’t seen an update on my state and I am in Indiana. As for federal I don’t think anyone who filed with TT has a ddd yet. Also may I ask what you state ddd is?January 28, 2016 at 8:31 pm #4118460
Has anyone who filed TT 1/25 and accepted 1/25 seen a DDD yet ??January 28, 2016 at 8:18 pm #4118452
Last year WMR didnt update, i had money deposited 5 day after filing. Hoping for the same luck this year.January 28, 2016 at 7:46 pm #4118446
Still one bar on WMR but I got a DDD for my state (IN) tonight!!January 28, 2016 at 6:40 pm #4118406

I filed this morning with turbo tax and was accepted for federal within an hour. Just checked the irs2go app and I have 1 bar which is return received. State (va) was accepted this evening and no info in their site.January 25, 2016 at 8:41 pm #4116845
I filed and got accepted today as well but no updates on WMR. It doesn’t even take me to the page where you can see bars.
Does anyone that got accepted and filed today see any bars on WMR yet?January 25, 2016 at 7:46 pm #4116831
My VA state was just accepted few minutes ago.January 25, 2016 at 6:50 pm #4116810
Still waiting on state to be approved.
Hoping to get a quick return this year. The past few years before last I’ve had slow returns over the past few yearsJanuary 25, 2016 at 4:27 pm #4116779
Filed and accepted today to as well.
VA state still saying sent at Taxslayer but state website says it has not been processed yet.January 25, 2016 at 3:54 pm #4116769
Filed 1/25 w TT
Fed accepted by TT and IRS within hour
I’m hoping for at least a DDD 2/5
Fingerscrossed fellow citizensJanuary 25, 2016 at 2:14 pm #4116729
Filed a little after noonish and federal accepted 20 minutes later. Still waiting on state. Hoping to see some quick returns this year.January 25, 2016 at 1:01 pm #4116715
I filed around midnight last night so, technically today. My fiance and both filed, both accepted within minutes, and both state returns have been accepted. Now it is just a waiting game. I hope it is like last year. Filed on the 20th last year and got my DD on 1/27. I didn’t even get accepted until 1/25 last year and no other updates on WMR. Here’s to a quick return!!January 25, 2016 at 12:57 pm #4116713
I hope this goes like last year. I filed on 1/26/2015 and had it in my bank on 2/3/2015 and that was after a 24 hour stay with the SBBT bc I had TurboTax deduct my tax fee from my refund.
