I had to id verify today and the lady was really really nice. She told me after I verified that I past the verification and she was removing the hold on my refund and that it can take up to 9 weeks for me to get a refund or letter. I asked her does this mean I am back in processing she said yes. Anyone who has id verified were you told the same info? I dont know what to believe anymore when it comes to the IRS. To top it off the lady told me this is what I am supposed to tell you..so she was going with the script the IRS tells her to say….smh. 9 weeks is a long time.

@patti all you have to do is call that number given to you to verify you id. same thing happened to me. call the number, the lady will ask you some questions about u only u should know, once you answer them correctly she will take the hold off your refund. the whole thing is for your protection as well as their protection because its allot of frauds out there thats stealing peoples information to get their money. they want to make sure their giving it to the right person. once i verified, not even a week later i had a ddd. trust me its simple and fast. just call them and verify, you’ll have your refund in about a week. i promiseAugust 1, 2016 at 10:33 am #4150464
I my refund was processed through Turbo Tax April 12, 2016. I received a text that is was approved the same day. I received my state with no problem. I finally received a letter to call them. I was told I needed to verify my ID, and then they could not approve it because I had moved (bought a house) and filed jointly last year and single this year (divorce- no name change). When I go to verify my refund it tells me processing, with no estimated date. When I call it does the same thing. When I try to very my ID again on line, it says I cannot do this on line and need to call. Help! It is the end of July!April 20, 2016 at 5:48 pm #4150200
Being able to order your account and return transcript does NOT mean you will receive anything soon. That is not true I was able to order and revieved mine over 2 weeks ago- mine still says processing and a date will be provided. I filed early February. Verified early March- called back to find out if verified passed but they forgot to close the account- she closed it for me on April 4th and said it could take up to 9 weeks- the only code on my transcript I was worried about was the 570 so called again today and she informed me that everything was fine and it should change and my return should be here within the 9 weeks- it’s been 16 days since the id verify has been closed and I still have no updates…April 13, 2016 at 12:42 pm #4150129
Received letter stating needed copy of Healthcare Marketplace form
Faxed on 03/14
03/22/2016 Received letter stating someone else tried filing a tax return in my name but they were unsuccessful

04/12/2016 Went to local IRS office at 7:30 am waited until 11:45 they took my return, ID and birth certificate. Said my ID was verified and I should have a DDD within 6-8 weeks unless they needed something else. GeeshApril 5, 2016 at 5:43 pm #4150041
This is Crazy!!!!
1/20 – Filed
2/10 – WMR (expected refund date)
2/15 (called IRS was told I have to wait 21 days)
2/19 recieved a letter basically stating your return is being processed there is nothing you need to do we will contact you or you will revieve a refund when we are done. (no number nothing)
2/22 Called No information giving just still processing told to call back in 14 business days
3/14 called and again told to call back after the March 22.
In the mean time did some research on whats going on found other going through the same thing and a few corners to cut that may help. I went to idverify.irs.gov stated you do not have to verify your identity at this time and
Also the Santa Barbara Tax Products Group (TPG) https://taxpayer.sbtpg.com/ TPG has not received your federal tax refund.
It stated “Your expected IRS funding date of 2/10/2016 has passed, and the IRS has delayed the processing of your tax return. Check the status of your refund by calling the IRS at 800.829.1040. If we receive your refund, it will be processed according to your original instructions.”
The Treasury Offset Program at (800) 304-3107 to see if all or some of your refund is being collected through them. NONE
Still no letter in mail noting!
Today 4/5 I called and was told that I had to go in to verify my identity was giving the number 1-844-545-5640 and there is no available appointment with in 10 miles until May 29th 2016.
While on hold I went back to the Idverify website and was able to verify BUT STILL set the appointment just in case that does not work. This is frustrating and unfair on account of their systems kicking most of our filings out due to their error it has to be a better way!April 4, 2016 at 9:49 pm #4150024
I’ve been waiting since Feb 24th… The lady on the phone told me the website should be updated in 2 weeks and to wait 6-9 weeks for my refund…The website, till today…still says Your tax return is still being processed.
This is really annoying. No update or anything…Any suggestions?March 20, 2016 at 7:24 pm #4149698

So frustrating!March 1, 2016 at 5:04 pm #4144988
9001 code: 2/11
21st day: 2/29
So I never received a letter but when I called the IRS yesterday I was instructed to call the 800 number to id verify *sigh* so I called the number back to back like 11 times FINALLY I got through I spoke with a sweet representative she asked the standard questions my name social blah blah blah she put me on hold for what seems like forever when she returned she told me that I had to verify in person at the local Tax Assistance Center(IRS) *gotta be f’n kidding me* she helped me locate one close to me which is downtown Chicago told me what I would need take with me which is my Tax return W2 ID and my social *ok cool* come to find out you have to have an appointment to even see someone there *sigh* so I called the number to make an appointment and the only closest date they have available is March 23rd!!!!! *I swear I have had it up to here with IRS!!* I am seriously considering moving to Canda..

Have you gotten your refund?February 26, 2016 at 9:39 pm #4144288
Bars disappeared 1/29/16
Expected DDD 2/10/16
I filed and was accepted as stated above. After my 21 days i called irs said i needed to verify my id and they gave me the number. Called and couldnt get through due to high call vloume soo i called about 6:59 pm and finally got through still had 90 minute hold. Verified id and was told return was put back into processing. After reading others say they had issues with their verification being processed and not getting any updates on WMR, i called the verification line again. Told me i shouldnt have called bc it could take up to 9 weeks for return to go thru but she would check on it anyway. She tells me it shows my id had been verified but the representative didnt put my return back into processing. She was doing it then and was glad i called instead of waiting 9 weeks and would be upset if she was in my position. then says they only have to tell us 9 week wait but it more than likely be a 1-2 week wait. Stay on them and dont give up. I still havent gotten my return after filing in mid january but i do have more hope for a deposit next week. Good Luck everyoneFebruary 26, 2016 at 5:15 pm #4144227
I had to go into an IRS office because I could not be verified via telephone…. I was told I would get my refund in 6 weeks or less; she told me that many times after the verify, as long as there isn’t another issue, you will get a DDD at the next update after the verify was completed and summited.February 26, 2016 at 4:50 pm #4144212
Same here. I had verified on 2/19 and was told it will take 3 to 4 weeks. I still have the refund is still processing on their site along with tax topic 152. I was able to order return transcripts today but was told just 20 minutes ago that I am still processing. I don’t know what to think anymore.February 26, 2016 at 4:45 pm #4144209
I verified identity on 2-19-16 passed and was told to wait 9 weeks but when I checked WMR got no information could be provided tax topic 152 reference 9001 when calling. Should I be worried?February 26, 2016 at 3:07 pm #4144170
has anyone been told they were in review and then got a ddd? if so how long in between?February 26, 2016 at 1:15 pm #4144140
So frustrated! Uggh! I’ve never had to ID verify before. I filed on 2/2/16 excepted same day. Received a letter on 2/22/16 stating I had to ID verify. I tried the website said my identity could not be verified online so I called every hour on 2/22/16 and could not get through. I went down to the local IRS office on 2/23/16 but there was a 5 hour wait. Same day I called back to back and finally got through. ID verified 2/23/16 the lady told me they say 9 weeks but I’m sure it will be sooner told me more like 1 to 2 weeks. I’ve never had bars which is strange and now my status says received return and is being processed when before it always just said Still being processed. Idk this is ridiculous! Still no DDD hopefulling next week.February 26, 2016 at 10:17 am #4144093
I filed electronically on 1/20
I called them on 2/16. They gave me a 1800 number to call and I was told that I need to verify my identity. They asked me few questions over the phone and the lady told me that my identity has been verified. And I was told that it would take upto 9 weeks before I can receive my refund.
On 2/19 my refund was approved and was sent to my bank account. It got reflected on my account on 2/24February 25, 2016 at 5:23 pm #4143922

I filed on 1/27 and was accepted within an hour. My bars disappeared and i got tax codes 152 and 9001. I was patient till the 10th when i should of received refund. Called and ID verified and also got a TA that day who gave me a case number. I was told the same ole Bs everyone else is getting.
TA called me on the 17th and hinted that i may have a return this week or at least a DDD. I was able to order return trans. on the 19th. The account trans the week before and she was surprised on the account order. so then why would she hint i may be near the end of waiting? she had me fax in my hardship proof by the 19th. she didnt ask for anything else.
Got the account transcript and it reads no return filed!!!
TA- called me today and said that now i was on hold for income verification and that filing early had caused my return to go through before the employer verification arrived at the IRS therefore my return was put in limbo. I suspect this has happened to alot of january filers. She said my income ver. had been sitting with the IRS since 2/11 and ive just been sitting on hold . she sent request over today to have it released and said they have 72 hours to work my return and she will call me on the 3/2. and then will call me again on 3/ 9! when i should have my refund. UGH.
She also said that if i hadnt been proactive it may have been months and months before i had seen a refund. I ve been stalking here and i just wanted to add my story , maybe it will help someone that needs their return like i do.February 25, 2016 at 3:26 pm #4143902
filed on 1/18 accepted on 1/19 did id verify on 2/5, ordered return trans on 2/19, my status changed and now says we have received your refund and it is being processed, called on 2/22 and was told I was under review, still no dddFebruary 25, 2016 at 12:00 pm #4143848
Did ID verify 2/10 was told I would now have to wait 9 weeks to complete processing and got refund yesterday 2/24 . I think the 9 weeks response we get is what they tell everyone.February 25, 2016 at 11:53 am #4143846
Its been 36 days so far from filing date of 01/19 and 15 days since I verified on the phone with an agent. Still no change in the WMR or IRS2GO..still says refund processing. SMDH!February 25, 2016 at 12:53 am #4143770
Lost bars on WMR on the 30th and received a letter on the 16th to verify my identity. Called and verified my identity on the 17th and I’m still without bars. I was able to order both transcripts last Friday so I’m hoping to get a DDD soon .I called IRS today and the agent said everything was fine and its looking like 10 or so days after you verify you should receive your DDD. I’m patiently waiting thoughFebruary 25, 2016 at 12:48 am #4143769
Destiny, I was having them same problems I did however get through to the verify line and I called around 3 p.m. est call volume was very high in the morningFebruary 24, 2016 at 6:28 pm #4143713
Finally received my refund today!
Filed 1/13 with Turbotax
Missing bars 1/29
Called 2/10 and was told to verify
Called 2/10 and verified over the phone (they asked questions from my credit report)
I was told to wait 9 weeks but maybe call in 4
Received DDD of 2/24 on 2/19 and WMR had 2 bars
SBTPG showed it received the money on 2/22
US Bank posted the money early morning 2/14
I had moved, got divorced, and went back to school since last year.
I only verified ID once after 21 days. I’ve read MANY people having trouble verifying ID before their 21 days.
Cya next year everyone!February 24, 2016 at 2:13 pm #4143669
So I just spoke with the IRS again! She said they have issued a credit already im just waiting on a date, what does this mean?February 24, 2016 at 2:12 pm #4143668
I filed my tax return 01/25/2016. I received a letter on 02/18/2016 saying that I need to verify myself. I went on the website and entered all of my information in. After clicking submit, it told me that I needed to call because it can’t verify me. I have been “non-stop” calling and EVERY TIME I get “Our hotlines are at high volume, call again later.” As if it’s not already inconvenient that we get our returns late (single parents ESPECIALLY!) I mean, it’s our money in the first place. I work hard all year to get this. But, anyways…. ON TOP OF GETTING RETURNS LATE, THEY CAN’T EVEN MAKE IT EASY TO ID VERIFY. Why does everything, involving the government, cause so many problems?!February 24, 2016 at 11:47 am #4143649
I filed and was accepted 01/19/16..WMR accepted bar disappeared a few days later,so I waited 21 days, called IRS and agent referred me to the ID Verify Dept on 02/10/16. Was told It would take 9 weeks for refund. I called again 02/19/16 just to be certain it was OK. Was told all was as it should be, and was being processed. I’ve heard of others getting refund via Direct Deposit, back by now, that have filed and verified on almost, or similar dates as myself. Hoping it will post in my account very soon, it’s just ridiculous. I also called on a Tax Advocate, and she was a bit snippy..said “whatever IRS says, that’s what I must accept”. All this makes everyone so mad, myself included. The IRS software apparently throws too many false positives, and causes many returns to be flagged for ID Verification, that otherwise, would not be suspect. So it is a wait and see game for many of us. So 35 days and counting for me.February 24, 2016 at 9:46 am #4143623
filed on 1/18 accepted on 1/19 did id verify on 2/5, ordered return trans on 2/19, called on 2/22 and was told I was under review, still no ddd.February 23, 2016 at 10:39 pm #4143533
I filled 1/19
Had to verify 2/10
Got approved 2/20
Direct deposit scheduled 2/24
Thanks all for your comments been reading every day. :) Does anyone why some get Thiers a day early? Did the ppl for did 2/18 get theirs?February 23, 2016 at 6:29 pm #4143466
Ok So I called today, & was told that I’am under review. But its like the representative didn’t know what was really going on, He told me because Im being processed that I couldn’t order my Acct or Return transcrips, but I was able to order both.
I just want my money I get a filing pin each year WTH can be the F’n hold up…February 23, 2016 at 3:24 pm #4143405
Filed 1/26 id verified 2/10. Was able to order return transcript 2/19 got a DDD 2/20 for 2/24. SBTPG has my money pending to my account. Hope this helps
MY TAX SEASON HAS BEEN HELLFebruary 23, 2016 at 3:04 pm #4143401
I believe you can verify online but I believe you need the control number from the letter. Also, I heard that verifying online makes the processing go even slower. Not sure if that is true or not, but I did hear that.February 23, 2016 at 3:01 pm #4143400
No update on my taxes. I was told on 2/18 that I need to verify my ID. I did so on 2/19. Yesterday, I received the letter from the IRS saying that I needed to verify my ID. The letter was dated 2/18. I called again and was told that I do not need to verify my ID again. Once they do it over the phone then I didn’t need to do anything else. Hopefully this will be over soon because I am tired of this.
As for the questions that they had asked me, well, I was asked if I had efile last year and then a couple of questions that are based on my credit report such as with whom do I have my car loan and student loan through.
Word of advice, if you can’t get through the number to call to verify your ID then just keep hitting the redial button. I couldn’t get through at first but hung up and hit the redial button and I got through. It seems to work that way.February 23, 2016 at 2:59 pm #4143399
Filed & Accepted: 2/4
Bars disappeared 2/13 & I have been sitting on that same “processing” message.
No updates @ all
I had to ID Verify last year – they told me it was due to a hack in the Turbo Tax system @ some point the previous year. & I was thinking I was told last year that I would have to verify for the next 3 years. I have not gotten any codes up until this point indicating that I needed to call about any issues. Called 800-829-0582 x652 just now. The lady I spoke with was super helpful. She said since I had been on hold for so long & that since I was only 2 days away from my 21 day mark she’d go ahead & pull up my account. She told me that I did in fact have to ID Verify & gave me the # to call. She said that @ some point this week I should have seen an update with the 4 digit code to call to verify.
So I’ve been calling this 800-830-5084 for the last 30 minutes. It keeps telling me that due to high call volume my call can not be completed @ this time. Anybody else having this issue? Seems like I saw on a post somewhere that some people were about to ID Verify online. Is this an option?February 23, 2016 at 2:28 pm #4143393
Update: No DDD. WMR still has the same message, taxes being processed… frustrating. I am hoping it will update tomorrow morning (Wednesday, 2/24) for a DDD of 3/2 perhaps? it seems deposits are made on Wednesdays. I will keep you posted!February 23, 2016 at 1:22 pm #4143372
Filed January 29th idverify February 17 2016 able to order my able to order my both transcript as of 19 . when should i expect my refund ? Is anyone going thru thisFebruary 23, 2016 at 12:58 pm #4143358
Can someone please share the number you called and verified I am trying to call but it does not connect and says due to high call volume we cannot connectFebruary 23, 2016 at 10:29 am #4143295
So I just spoke to the IRS again and a man told me they are just reviewing my return before they issue a refund, there are no errors or codes and I should see something around April, smh really! I filed on 1/18 accepted on 1/19 verify id on 2/5 and ordered return trans on 2/19, still nothing, I am getting very discouraged.February 23, 2016 at 9:17 am #4143276
i have a question for those who had to id verify……I was accepted 2/4 , missing bars on 2/23, could order account transcripts on 2/12, and but could never order return transcripts
does this fit what you experienced with getting id verification?
i dont have an error code on wmr, just missing bars
i did not get a letter yet
when did you guys get a letter in the mail to id verify?
thank you so much!February 23, 2016 at 8:50 am #4143268
Saralyn-Samething happend to me.You will be asked full name.Dob.SSn.How you filed .full address.Did you efile last or mail return.They may also ask a few things about last year,so you should have a copy of 2014 return.After you verify they will tell you 9 weeks to get your refund.Don’t worry about that.I verified on 2/16 & got a DDD of 2/24 & received my money this morning.So it really took 7 days.The best of luck & keep the faith :)February 23, 2016 at 8:21 am #4143257

I lost my bars on wmr on 2/2 and have had the same message since then and no bars. Message is return still being processed. A refund date will beb provided when available and had topic 152. The agent I spoke with couldn’t tell me why there was a freeze on my refund just that it could be several weeks til it is releasedFebruary 22, 2016 at 6:33 pm #4143145
I was told that once it is closed it is a good thing. I was told by a rep at the irs that inched closed it is finished. And you should be receiving your refund soon. I was told mine was closed on 2/19 and I have a DDD for 2/24 and its at SBTPG now. So good thing I hope and I hope this helps.February 22, 2016 at 6:18 pm #4143141

I filed on 1/30, bars disappeared almost 2 weeks ago. Called and asked if I needed to verify a week ago since I went through this LAST year, was told it was pulled for review. Called Friday, (20 days, how sneaky of me) and the lady was super pissy and gave me the 21 days speech. God forbid they tell you anything a day early when the IRS is closed on day 21 :/ Anyways FINALLY got through today and the girl told me I did indeed need to ID verify, surprise surprise since I did last year also for the same reason.
Verified ID today, man I spoke with was very nice and told me to expect to ID verify next year also because of a fraud indicator on my account because of a security breach with a previous employer. He said allow up to 9 weeks, but he heard it hasn’t been taking anywhere near 9 weeks after the verification is done. Hopefully this guy was right!February 22, 2016 at 9:25 am #4143076
I filed on 1/18 accepted on 1/19 did id verify on 2/5 ordered return trans on 2/19 and still no ddd.February 22, 2016 at 9:25 am #4143075
I filed 1/22/2016 , got letter 2/10/2016, verified identity online that night, still no new update. I tried the 5084 number message i get “Due to high call volume your call can not be completed as dialed” i call 1040 number was told i need to call 5084…..
Does anyone else know how to get hold of identity verification department , i even call at 6:59 am and still can’t get thru. this is frustrating can anyone helpFebruary 22, 2016 at 6:31 am #4143039
Same here. Was able to order both transcripts on the 19th, still no wmr bars. I filed on 1/22, verify id 2/10.February 22, 2016 at 6:02 am #4143037
I filed on 1/20 and accepted same day. Verified my id on 2/9 and was able to order return transcript on 2/12, which from my understanding means my refund was processed. However I still have tax topic 152 reference number 9001. Has this has happened to anyone else? Has anyone been able to order 2015 return transcript and not received DDD?February 21, 2016 at 5:40 pm #4142947
@angela yes once your able to order transcript that means they are done processing your return and it should be on the next cycle. also i don’t think the IRS opens on Saturdays and Sundays, they probably got done processing it that same day you verified and scheduled for it to be updated that Saturday morning. Saturday morning had to be the day your transcript was available to order and you didn’t know it until today. its no way possible this morning could of been the day it was made available, they don’t update on Sundays. they have to be in the office the day before in order to send a hard update. the 24th is on Wednesday, i doubt you’ll be on that cycle because i don’t think i seen yet where they give a ddd 2 days before the ddd. im curious to find out tho, and i hope you prove me wrong with a update. if im right, then you’ll catch the next ride after the 24th. whatever date that will beFebruary 21, 2016 at 5:12 pm #4142943
Update: I verified on 2/ 19 and today was able to order my return transcripts! I’m hoping to wake up to a DDD of 2/24… Please!!!!!!! By the way, I never received a letter but from what I gathered reading everyone’s posts, you can’t order transcripts unless everything has been finalized and the money is being released. If I’m wrong, will someone please tell me? If hate to get my hopes up for no reason!February 21, 2016 at 9:07 am #4142856
Hardworking middle class always gets fuckedParticipant
Do I have to verify every week when you take a chunk out my ass ?? No .. Do I have to wait 21 days 6-9 weeks if I’m sending you hot dog water smelling bitches owed taxes NOOOFebruary 21, 2016 at 8:11 am #4142848
Received 3 wmr bars 2/3 with a DDD of 2/10
Money never deposited. Waited, called bank, called hr block, nothing. 21 days came and went. Called IRS on 2/16. Was told I would receive a letter in the mail or my refund within 60 days because my taxes were pulled for review. No letter ever came. I called IRS again on 2/19 to check status. No letter had been mailed yet. The young lady I spoke to called me back 15 minutes later and told me I needed to verify my ID. Gave me a number to call. I called and after trying 7 times got thru, then held for an hour. Was not able to verify my id on the phone. Guess I couldn’t remember a phone number from 9 years ago! Went on ID verify and successfully verified my ID. Now hoping and praying I get a new DDD soon because I need a car!!!!!!!!February 20, 2016 at 10:31 pm #4142806
2/15: bars went missing
2/17: verified id phone
2/19: FINALLY!! Able to order return transcript…
2/20: Woke up to DDD of 2/24…yayy!!
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!February 20, 2016 at 8:54 pm #4142782
Woke up this morning to a 2/24 DD date as well. I verified my ID on 2/12(roughly), so looking at only a few weeks, not the 9 weeks they seem to tell you once you verify your ID, unless there is more to it. I’m obviously just going based on what it seems everyone else is saying, plus my own experience.February 20, 2016 at 7:16 pm #4142757

No DDD for me but could order return transcript yesterday idkFebruary 20, 2016 at 7:58 am #4142511
I filed on January 28th, was accepted the same day. I called the IRS to check on my refund since it was 21 days. I had to verify my identity (after calling for hours straight trying to get threw) the lady I spoke to said up to 9 weeks. But as I’m reading threw these after people verified there ID it looks like 3 days and people are getting a DDD. Hoping I get mine soon!February 20, 2016 at 7:14 am #4142495
I’m in with everyone else, looks like the irs is catching up, the verify ID wait was not that bad, if only I had known it was necessary sooner. I also verified before my 21 days was up over the phone, next year I will do the same, but I’ll trying calling if it’s been over 2 weeks, that way I do actually get my refund in 21 days.
Verify ID: 1/12
refund transcript: 1/19
DD: 2/24!!!!!!!February 20, 2016 at 7:04 am #4142492
Bars dissapeared 1/30
ID verified 2/17 after repeated calls checking status and so on and so forth.
Was NOT able to order a return transcript thru yesterday 2/18.
DDD for 2/24… It’s been a pain in the butt road this year, perhaps even worse than last year… GL everyone!!February 20, 2016 at 7:00 am #4142491
The tax advocates really are NO help! I spoke to several different ones telling them I had economic hardship since they are supposed to help you and they ALL told me I just had to wait! You are VERY lucky!!February 20, 2016 at 6:55 am #4142490
@impatientlywaiting i noticed i see allota tax advocates not being much help to some people. i guess i was the lucky one because my advocate was nice and called me a day before the update just to let me know i’ll see my refund in my account on the 24th.February 20, 2016 at 6:50 am #4142488
I filed using TT 1/17 and was accepted 1/19 on 2/7 my bars went missing on 2/9 I called a tax advocate because last year I was flagged for identity theft and I wanted to make sure that was not the problem again but they assured me I was only pulled for further review and I would receive my refund by 3/28 but I was not satisfied with that answer so I called the IRS on 2/13 and spoke with a nice gentleman that told me that I was flagged for possible identity theft and I needed to verify so I called the number and verified and the hold was released and I woke up this morning to a DDD 2/24!! Yay! Even though they told me 9 weeks! It’s almost over good luck to everyone!!!February 20, 2016 at 6:05 am #4142473
Woke up with a DDD this morning!
1/24 filed and accepted
1/30 bars mia
2/10 I’d verified
2/20 approved DDD set for 2/24
Praying everyone updated.February 20, 2016 at 5:33 am #4142467
Hi all! Similar story as everyone else.
Bar disappeared: 2/7 (17 days)
Verified ID over the phone: 2/10 (21 days) and was told wait 9 weeks.
I was finally able to order return transcripts on 2/19. (30 days)
DDD: 2/24!!!!!! (35 days)
Yes!!!!! Thank you to everyone who posted your experiences. Reading that others were dealing with the same issues kept me sane. To those who haven’t received their refund, it’s coming. To those who are being told lies by the IRS keep calling but remember to try to be calm and nice and you’ll get the same in return. Good luck everyone.February 20, 2016 at 5:19 am #4142465
I filed 1/20 with TT and I was told through TT I was accepted 1/20 as well. Fast forward three weeks I lost my bars but I still had Topic 152. I called ID verify because I figured it was past my 21 days but come to find out I wasn’t accepted until 1/22. The agent that helped me was very nice and told me I had a hold on my account and that I was going to have to verify my ID. I answered a couple of questions and I was told I would have it within 9 weeks. Earlier tonight I tried to order my return transcript and it went through. About 10 mins ago I checked WMR and I have a DDD of 2/24. Finally my money is on its way.
Oh and I verified my ID on 2/10. Just a couple days shy of my 21 days.
Good luck to those waiting. I was dreading that nine week wait but it’s finally here.February 20, 2016 at 4:44 am #4142455
update!!!!! tax advocate was right, this morning about 4am i woke up to a ddd of feb 24th. to those who have to verify id just remember to not ever verify online before your 21 days is up, it will not go through properly and you’ll be sitting in the dark waiting for something thats not coming. i did for 2 weeks, once i realized something wasnt right i verified and got a ddd within 4 days. also dont ever believe that 9 weeks bs, they are trained to tell you that. i verified on the 16th, woke up this morning on the 20th with ddd of the 24th.February 20, 2016 at 4:19 am #4142444
Just wanted to update everyone and give hope..
Filed 1/26 had no movement for 2 weeks called irs and had to id verify. I id verified me on the 10th or 11th and verified husband last week was told wait 9 weeks. Lost bars and tax topic after verifying my husband. I just got ddd for the 24th. Good luck everyoneFebruary 19, 2016 at 5:30 pm #4142358
Ugh!! So annoyed !
So I finally called ID verify again today the first time was on the ninth. Long story short IRS directed me to call ID verify again because the first time they verify my ID it had not been 21 days. So I called today provide my information and the first thing the lady tells me is that she does not see anything in the system. I was livid because this has been an ongoing situation and I knew she had not even pulled up my account. So after about eight minutes of me ranting she decides to pull up the account lo and behold she needed to verify my ID !! I just don’t get it, why do they lie to us!? It’s my refund that is owed to me I’m not asking them to do me any favors so I just don’t get why they don’t just do their damn job. All the different things I read on this website plus the interaction I had today lets me know that they just say whatever they want to whomever they want. Anyway she gave me the nine week speech so now I’m just waiting …February 19, 2016 at 4:48 pm #4142344
Id verify 2/11
Can finally order my return transcript today 2\19
Never had a code or got a letter from IRS at all but called to id verify BC had to last year so know I will have to for 3 years!
Hoping to wake up to a DDD!February 19, 2016 at 4:34 pm #4142338
i verified my id on the 16th of feb over the phone. at 6am this morning, which is feb 18th i was able to finally order my return transcript. about 4 hours later while at work i get a unknown call from my tax advocate. she told me after looking at my file again this morning they are done processing it. she said it says my ddd is weds the 24th. she said they wont be updating the next cycle on the irs gov site until tomorrow morning, so i wont see it until then. so to all of you that were able to finally order your return transcript this morning like me, that means your on the next cycle and its done processing. and lesson learned, dont ever, ever, ever, ever verify online before your 21 days is up. i verified online 2 weeks before my 21 days was up. passed and all, but never saw a change for 2 weeks after i verified. i kept saying to my self something aint right, because i saw people who verified after me over the phone get ddd’s 4 and 5 days later. im like no way is that possible. so im sitting up waiting for something that was never coming for 2 whole weeks. 2 weeks after i verified i got a letter from the irs saying i had to verify my id, and if i didnt they was not going to release my refund. the letter was dated a week after i verified. thats when i knew i had to do something, cause it just didnt seem right. i called and they told me my review case was still open. she said for me to have verified and 2 weeks gone by it should of been closed by now. so i was like hell naw lol, i need a tax advocate right now. she requested me one, my advocate contacted me a week later. the day before she contacted me i verified over the phone to the protection hot line. 2 days later i was able to order my return transcript, then hours later she called me and said my return was scheduled to be direct deposited in my account weds feb 24th.February 19, 2016 at 4:19 pm #4142332
Filed on 1/27
Accepted on 1/28
Bars disappeared last week
Called twice before (last week and the week before) and was told that I didn’t need to verify but that there was an error message.
Called last night and was informed that I needed to verify my ID since it had been 21 days.
Verified my ID first thing this morning since it was so close to 7pm last night when I found out I had to verify my ID. Passed with flying colors. The guy told me it will be 3 to 4 weeks, which is weird since I am reading posts from people who were told 9 weeks.February 19, 2016 at 3:20 pm #4142304
Just spoke with a nice rep MR BROWN he did my IDVERIFY and I passed!! had me on the phone with him coughing and sounding like he was going to cough up a lung but he put the notes in sent my stuff through now I’m back processing so he says. the 9 week wait begins!!!!!!!!!! ;-(February 19, 2016 at 3:11 pm #4142296

Amanda H I am similar to you-
Bars missing around 1/29
Called 2/10 and told I had to ID verify
Verified same day
Could only order account transcript using old address, and it arrived with $0 (no info)
Finally able to order return transcript today 2/19 using new address
Still no bars on WMR
fingers crossed!February 19, 2016 at 11:47 am #4142181
I was able to order my return this morning and have a DDD of 2/24
BUTTTTT I have been reading all day today that people that had to verify their identity and had DDD of 18 & 19th have not received their money, when they called the IRS they are being told that their refund was reversed and they are now under another 60 day review, So I am seriously doubting I will actual get my refund on the 24thFebruary 19, 2016 at 11:26 am #4142164
verified online 2/15
Called 2/19 to verify that they received my online verification and was informed that the hold was released for processing on 2/18…
Can’t order return transcript…fingers still crossedFebruary 19, 2016 at 9:42 am #4142091
Never had any bars, only generic message saying ” your return is being processed and a refund date will be provided when available”
called 2/16 was told i had to ID verify
2/16: ID verified ( Took all day to get through! They are very busy so i suggest calling every minute or more to be able to get through lol)
2/19: Status on wmr changed to “your return has been received and is being processed”
I think i may be a weekly??? since i updated this morning (friday)?
Hope to see good news any day now! I’ll keep updating as new info comes in.February 19, 2016 at 9:36 am #4142086
So filed on 1/18 accept on 1/19, on 1/29 bars disappeared with message you return is being processed and a refund will be provided when avail, blah blah blah, id verify on 2/5 called the IRS yesterday and the lady said the id verify was closed on 2/5 and we have not started processing your return yet, well today I woke up with message saying We have received your tax return and it is being processed and I could order my return transcripts finally. What does this mean I wonderFebruary 19, 2016 at 8:54 am #4142063
1/30 bars MIA with “your return is beeing processed a refund date will be provided when available.” message
2/10 ID Verified via phone with Tax Payer Protection Unit
2/18 could order account transcripts with new address
2/19 WMR updated to “your return has been received and is being processed” still no bars or tax topic
2/19 could order 2015 return transcripts!
I’m seeing movement! Praying for an update tomorrow.February 19, 2016 at 8:38 am #4142054
Filed 1/11; Accepted 1/11 (Actual IRS acceptance would be 1/19)
NO bars and message:
NO info available…allow 4 weeks…etc. with TT 152 And the dreaded if you have questions call…..please mention reference code 9001 to representative on 1/30
Verified ID online 2/1
Called to verify the online verification 2/12 (said it was noted on return, 6-8 weeks, etc.)
Got ID Verification Notice/letter via USPS 2/13
Called ID Verification line 2/16 (system down, call overloads, got no info)
Called regular rep morning of 2/17 (just to make sure my 5071C ID Verify letter was generated prior to me verifying online, rep said noted on return but call ID Verification for peace of mind if I felt I needed to…couldn’t get thru to ID Verification department morning of 2/17; hence why I spoke with random rep)
FINALLY got thru to ID Verification department later on 2/17
Awesome rep/service/help, was told it was noted by the other departments and I could wait or I could also verify via phone, too with her as ONLY ID VERIFY REPS CAN ACTUALLY CLOSE ID CASE AND PUSH IT IMMEDIATELY BACK TO PROCESSING (basically, other reps note ID was verified but they can’t actually DO anything to close; ID Verify Rep CAN close it and send to process which gives you the option of knowing WITHOUT ANY DOUBTS the issue is fixed.
(The ID issue is fixed, anyway…as I have seen some clear up ID flag and return flagged again when put back in processing…this is very rare, tho, I think…only 2 occurrences about which I read).
I opted to verify again with her, she closed and sent return on its merry way (((SO, YES, CALL NUMBER ON THAT LETTER EVEN IF YOU VERIFIED ONLINE)))!!!!!!
I was just able to order return transcript for 2015 for first time a few minutes ago 2/19.
However, status on WMR has not changed, still has no info available, no bars, tt 152 ref code 9001 (refund amount and all on the left side is and has been the same entire time)
I now do not know what to think! Return transcript means your stuff is done, but why is my WMR status not gone back to processing message??? I am hopeful I get a DDD in morning tomorrow (I’m a weekly) but message on WMR not changing has me worried even though I can do return transcript…..ANYONE ELSE LIKE ME OR HAVE ANY IDEA??
Good luck to us all, hopefully this will be over for us very soon. I will not believe anything until I am actually purchasing something with the card my funds are to be deposited on.February 19, 2016 at 7:52 am #4142031
2/15: bars went missing
2/17: verified id phone
2/19: FINALLY!! Able to order refund returns…
….hopefully this means i will get a DDD soon !!
Good luck to everyone…will keep you updated.
P.s. so glad others have received good news today…Still praying for those still waiting…it sucks but hang on…its coming.
SoFebruary 19, 2016 at 7:42 am #4142026
You must go to your local IRS office to verify in person.February 19, 2016 at 7:22 am #4142019
Well, I have been, like everybody else, wondering when I will get my refund. I am, as of today, 2/19/16, able to order my return transcript for my new address. Hopefully tomorrow I will have a DDD.February 19, 2016 at 7:22 am #4142018
I was able to order my return transcript and I have a different message stating they have approved my return on WMR. So relievedFebruary 19, 2016 at 7:20 am #4142016

This morning there is still no movement on WMR, HOWEVER I was able to order my return transcript for this year this morning 2/19. So, that means my return is completed and I am guessing I will see movement tomorrow morning and hopefully a DDD for next week.February 19, 2016 at 7:04 am #4142005

When I completed my tax returm it asked for my State ID information. I am a victim identity theft so I have to use a pin every year. Will I get selected for ID verify? What is it exactly and why does one get chosen?February 18, 2016 at 9:39 pm #4141901
Just found out today that I have to verify my ID. I had called twice asking them if I needed to since I had to verify my ID with the state of Ohio 2 years in a row, and each time I was told no but that there was error message from 1/28 but they didn’t know what it was and that a letter was sent to me then. Well, no letter was ever received.
So today was the 21st day and when I called the nice lady told me that it needed to be verified and gave me the phone number to get it verified. The only problem is I can’t find my tax return from last year because she said I may need it. The lady told me she would make a note on their end and send me another copy, but since I am in a payment plan for back taxes that it should be ok because I get the letters. I don’t know about that but I will find out. I just don’t understand why they simply couldn’t tell me that I needed to verify my identity when I called previously out of concern.February 18, 2016 at 7:15 pm #4141860
No bars 1-22 generic message
Waited the full 21 days, called IRS on the 22nd day which was 2-10.
They told me that i needed to id verify and that they were scheduled to send me the letter but it had not yet gone out and that i could verify online or call the number to verify. I chose to verify online as soon as the call was done. I verified and got the congratulations message and read that it would take 6-8 wks. I called them right back to see if they saw it in the system and was told to call back in about two days to see if it updated. So, from then until now i was no longer able to get through. I had been consistently checking WMR seeing the same generic message with no update. I continued checking this thread to get more ideas on what to do based on what others were doing. I was able to order an account transcript but still not the return transcript. I was afraid that my verification never went through so i went online and tried to redo it but it wouldnt let me so I called the TPA about two hours ago to see what they could tell me. They said that the initial verification that i submitted online (way before i even got a letter mailed) did in fact go through and that everything was looking good im just in the waiting process. They said that if there is a financial hardship and i need the money before 9 weeks that they could assist me so i went ahead with it. Not sure if they can speed it up or not, but we shall see…I will update here as soon as anything changes. Thanks to everyone that has been sharing because it helps…hopefully i have helped someone.February 18, 2016 at 4:53 pm #4141822
I can now order my account transcripts with my new address!!! Filed and accepted on1/24, id verified on 2/10. Maybe i will update this weekend.February 18, 2016 at 12:20 pm #4141712
I had to call verify today. Person was very aggressive. Very rude. When asking questions he didn’t want me to stutter. I’ve never done this, so, I guess I’m mumbling to my self in Spanish. He said I had someone there with me, I said I’m just thinking, he said if he talking english why I’m taking Spanish. Said I have to go in person to verify. Hung up on me. What do I ake to them?…..my tax person been ignoring me last 2 weeks. Very worried.February 18, 2016 at 8:30 am #4141551
Filed 1/26 verified 2/10 and can’t order RETURN transcript. I was able to order account transcripts on 2/5. Hoping for an update this weekFebruary 17, 2016 at 11:06 pm #4141463
I filed on the January 26th. I called to verify today 2/17. A representative told me that everything was okay. She stated that if I have not received a letter by April 20th to call back, and I guess that’s another 9 weeks. I have never had this happen. The is straight BS!!! Some are the representatives can come off very rude. I am so upset with the IRS ughhhhhhFebruary 17, 2016 at 6:46 pm #4141368
IT’S MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!!
@torri my situation is semi similar when filing and verifying dates. I verified today with that 800.830.5084 number and now we wait. This is what I will say for people who are unaware of the process of verifying online vs live person.
The way to verify online is if you recieved a letter. If you verify without recieving a letter, yiur verifucation will not go through even if it says Congratulations at the end, trust me. You ha e to call the 800 number. Also, the 800 number may say * sorry, due to high volume calls we are not taking calls…* hang up call bk to bk to bk. I called three times in a row and finally got thru. The lines are tied but keep calling aggressively. Once u get through, I waited 45 min. Be ready to answer questions from 15 yrs ago bc the questions are random and honestly a bit…. forgetful. So..be ready. Once you pass they will let you know the ridiculous wait of 9 wks which isnt true but its the process.February 17, 2016 at 2:29 pm #4141242
I filed on the 26th 21 days was up on the 16th called the tax advocacy to see what was wrong they told me to ID verify so I verified on the phone yesterday and it was pushed through since after I verified the system crashed I called the Tax advocacy today to make sure my ID verification went through he confirmed that it has in fact gone through and now it is just the waiting game.. He also said that 9 weeks is the time frame they tell everyone he said some have gotten it within days of verification some within weeks, I guess it just depends on how quickly they are working through them..February 17, 2016 at 1:56 pm #4141226
@charles I was told the same thing even though I successfully verified my information. So I called a tax advocate who expressed that I needed to go verify in person at the local irs office.February 17, 2016 at 8:22 am #4141018
verified on 2/10… still no updates can’t order account transcripts with current address but can for old address. I have had no movment since being accepted 1/24February 17, 2016 at 7:35 am #4140994
Well same ole same story. NO CHANGE, nothing in bank, WMR is a bust, and still can’t order return transcript but I was able to order account transcript on 2/5. Waiting game is going to give me grey hair.February 17, 2016 at 7:08 am #4140979
Another update, tonight I check WMR and it has changed from “We have received your refund and it is still being processed” with tax topic 152 to “your tax return is still being processed” with tax topic 152. Maybe this means things are moving?
verify ID 2/12February 16, 2016 at 9:45 pm #4140889
@amber almost same thing i did, the only difference is mine was a week before 21 days, and i did it online. it ask me questions and i passed. it said i will receive my return within 6 to 8 weeks. 2 weeks after verifying i get a letter saying i need to verify, and a rep told me it wasn’t even in the system showing i verified. she could have told me this to brush me off as well but i’ll know once i try to verify tomorrowFebruary 16, 2016 at 9:16 pm #4140882
IT’S MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!!
If you can order your account transcript then u do not have aby offsets holding you back and you do not owe any money (student loans, state tax, child support (shame on u) ).
If you can order your return transcriptsit means your refund has been processed. It literally what the return transcript is. A record of what happened during the process of your refund. Account transcript is just your tax payer profile in carbon copy. You want to be able to order that return transcript then you know your money is on its way:) I am getting the same message so it’s simply means my return isn’t finished being processed yet even though I was able to order my account tranny.
In short, once u verify ur iden go ahead and see if u can order ur trannies. If you can order either then ur good, its just a waiting game now….
S/n…i wonder if the ppl working for the irs had these issues as well…hmmm…probably not…just sayn.
Good luck folxFebruary 16, 2016 at 9:14 pm #4140880
I filed on 1/26 and verified on2/10 which was only 2 weeks after I file but I did verify by phone so I should be in the good. But they did send a letter out on the 10th as well hopefully that was before I verified because why would they let me do so by phoneFebruary 16, 2016 at 9:03 pm #4140871
@IT’S MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!! wrong!!!! lol i verified online before my 21 days was up just like you. got the same questions and pass. two weeks later which is today return still said processing. i knew something was wrong because i seen more then 30 people on this forum claim to get a ddd within a week after verifying. friday that just past i got a letter dated like a week after verifying, stating that they need me to verify my id and until then my return will not be processed. so i called the irs rep, the lady looked me up and said my case was still under review. she said if its been 2 weeks after verifying my id, my case should not still be active for a review. she said it would have been taken off hold by now and placed back in normal rotation. i told her i verified online a week before my 21 days, and she said thats why im still under review. she said you can not jump ahead of the system before your 21 days is up, it will not go through properly. it’ll be as if i never verified. she said the id verification reps wouldnt of even spoke with me about my return if i wasnt past my 21 days. so @IT’S MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!! if i were you, i’ll call back tomorrow and verify over the phoneFebruary 16, 2016 at 8:35 pm #4140859
Me too also. I filed 01/19. Lost bars AND tax topic on 01/30. No codes either. Did ID verify myself because it happened to me last year. Did that on 02/04. Got a letter today stating to verify dated on 02/10. I tried to redo it online and it won’t let me which leads me to believe it in fact went through. I refuse to call because they do nothing but piss me off. So I know for a fact I’m a weekly cycle of 05 so praying I get an update this Sat.February 16, 2016 at 8:32 pm #4140858
IT’S MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!!
Bars left 2.12
Called 2.16 advised I needed to call and verify identity. Was unable to get through via phone all day bc they were not accepting calls due to high vol (bullshyt).
Called and verfied id today via internet. I also was able to order my transcripts (not return tran).
I will update once I recieve a date. Tomorrow I am calling the irs again to verify they got the verification and the hold is removed. I used H&R so those that used TT its really no diff. I would advise to those who filed at least two wks ago and have not recieved a letter or DDD to verify anyway dont wait 21 days. Also talk nice even if u have smoke coming from your ears bc it helps.
I dud not get a 1055 letter or whatever the letter is, i was advised to call. You do not need the letter to call. The verif id just asks basic stuff that u would know.
1. Did you file 2015?
2. Were u looking to get a refund?
3. What was your AGI( annual gross income)
4. Where did u live (multiple choice)
These ques are similar to doing an annual credit check. Its only 8-10 ques.
Good Luck FolxFebruary 16, 2016 at 8:22 pm #4140853
My letter was also marked for the 10th. And I really don’t trust the WMR a whole lot bc it said the same processing message last year.February 16, 2016 at 8:07 pm #4140843
Me too! I was totally confused. I verified on 2/4 and the letter was dated 2/10February 16, 2016 at 6:51 pm #4140805
Verified 2/4….dd 2/18. Got home today got another letter to verify ID. I’m going to wait until 2/18 to see what’s going on.February 16, 2016 at 1:18 pm #4140647
Called on 2/5 and was informed that return was pulled and assigned to a case manager on 2/2.. Was informed to wait for further instructions in the mail
2/15 check mail and had a letter informing me to ID verify online or by phone
2/15 verified online
Has anyone who verified ONLINE only received a DDD?February 16, 2016 at 11:31 am #4140570
I verified on 2/1 was told flag was lifted & now processing,should see update on wmr in a couple of days.Well wmr never updated.Called irs back on 2/10 was told i was processing & should see update by 2/15 & of course nothing.So called back again yesterday & was now told due to irs computers crashing i was stuck in a glitch & was not processing.Told to call today 2/16.I did & was told everything is fine & just to wait 8 weeks.Told agent i was to today & reverify,she bacame very rude & told me i didn’t know what i was talking about to just wait the 8 wks.Well i called the ip id line again & was told i was lucky i called because flag was never lifted due to the crash.The very nice helpful agent put me on hold for a few minutes,then returned & told me i was now processing & to wait 9 wks.from today.But she did tell me that is what they are told to tell everyone but that it could be as little as 2 wks.She did say they are very behined due to crash.So if anyone is unsure of their status i would call & double check-because she said the computer would not have caught the flag.You would have to call !!! Good luck to all of us in this 9001 hell !!!February 16, 2016 at 10:32 am #4140542
I filed and was accepted on 1/21. I called before the 21st day to see why the wheres my refund site only showed a topic 152 notice, and all she said was that they couldn’t give me any information until it had been at least 21 days. My ex has a clearance and without my permission gave his clearance auditor my information, which I received a letter was hacked and could be used fraudulently. Now I called IRS today and was told i need to verify my identity I assume this is why. I went online to try to verify was asked questions about myself which I know the answers to, but apparently got wrong!!! so it locked me out. I called the number and their system is down so they cant verify me right now. This is absolutely ridiculous!!!!! And now even after I am finally able to verify i have to wait an additional 6-9 weeks to receive the refund. I was told that people are picked at random for identity verification, but it seems to me like a load of bull as so many other people are having this same problem. And their system is always “down” sounds to me like they dont know what the heck they are doing and hide behind ignorance, and codes. Also sounds like they are being hacked and dont want the public to know.February 16, 2016 at 10:12 am #4140530
Yes, I called irs, man said the system was down. Still no luck for me, no update, still same message on wmr :( Id verify 2/11February 16, 2016 at 9:20 am #4140487
@ Ashley I have been hearing the irs is shut down today due to another mess up. Who knows but I have been trying to do things on thief website and it’s telling me technical issues.
But on the other note filed 1/26 today makes it 21 days and I have id verified on 2/10, so 6 days after I verified and still no update.February 16, 2016 at 8:30 am #4140446
Is it ok to verify id online? Can’t get thru to phone line.February 16, 2016 at 12:53 am #4140366
I filed 01/22 and was accepted the same day. I had one bar till 01/29.
All of a sudden I got the message with ref# 9001. Called 02/02 spoke to a really nice gentleman who verified me and released my return who said it would take up to 9 weeks. I also got a tax payer advocate involved. I spoke to the TPA Friday 02/05, she did tell me that she saw that it was verified and released 02/02 and to give it a couple of weeks. She also pointed out that the ref# codes on my transcript show her that is its processing. The TPA stated that it does not take 9 weeks they just have to tell you that. I check the WMR website every morning but still no change. My TPA said I should have an update after 2 weeks. She’s going to call me back 02/17. I’ll keep you all dated.February 15, 2016 at 8:44 pm #4140301
@jamie i file 1/14/16 was accepted the 14th as well did my id verification over the phone on 2/2/16 was told the hold on my refund was released. Yet im still waiting for wmr to update. It says the same nonsense. Finally got my letter 2/13/16 which was dated the tenth so i re-verified on 2/13 online and still nothing can’t even order transcripts. It’s hard not to get mad watching people who filed and verified after me get their refunds.February 15, 2016 at 8:31 pm #4140296
I did last tax season. …best way to avoid this self Identist before you file I did this year…..because everything gets bogged down and delayed when trying to identify in the processFebruary 15, 2016 at 6:36 pm #4140272
I filed on 1/17 using TT accepted 1/19 called an IRS tax advocate on 2/9 and they transferred me to the accounts department and told me that I was just pulled for further review after I informed them I was flagged for possible identity theft last year. But they told me I didn’t need to verify my ID and that i should receive my refund by March 28th. Not being satisfied with the that answer I called the IRS 2/13 and spoke with a very nice gentleman and he informed me that I needed to verify my ID again and gave me the number. After calling the number he provided me with I spoke to another very helpful woman that asked me some questions and I passed and she told me it could take 6-8 weeks But from what I am seeing people are receiving DDD a week to 10 days later so fingers crossedFebruary 15, 2016 at 5:34 pm #4140258
IRS Received: 1/25/16
Checked WMR on or about 2/1/16: Bars and Tax Topic 152 missing
Called IRS 2/8/16: Rude male said everything was good still processing.
Called IRS 2/10/16: Nice lady said my return was pulled for review and that I needed to do nothing. Since I have been reading these forums which suggested me to ID verify, so I did. After successfully completed, I received a congratulations message for a wait time of 6-8 weeks.
Called IRS 2/11/16 to verify information was received: Rude woman refused to look into my account I advised her as much as time as she is spending going back and forth with me she could be looking up my account. So she finally viewed my account saying I had to wait 9 weeks and that I verified successfully. So I decided to contact a tax advocate since things did not seem right. The tax advocate advised me to ID verify before I would be considered for help. I advised her that I had done so a few days prior. She reviewed my account and said I needed to go to the local IRS office to verify. Called the local office to see what the hours of operation were and received a pre-recorded message stating that I had to setup an appointment to verify my identity.
THESE PEOPLE ARE NUTS! I AM SICK OF IT!February 15, 2016 at 5:17 pm #4140255
I was given the number but then I asked about doing it online. He said I had to wait for the letter because the online version would ask me something specific to that letter.
I went online anyway and it didn’t ask anything from the letter. It asked a few questions about my past info (address, registered vehicles) and a dollar amount from the current tax paperwork.February 15, 2016 at 4:55 pm #4140254February 15, 2016 at 4:37 pm #4140253
@garrett Yes, I got a DDD for 2/18. I verified on 2/5February 15, 2016 at 4:30 pm #4140245
GT 50h….The lady that I talked to today didn’t give me an option to do mine online. She said to call the 1-800 number to verify my Id. Did the person you talk to tell you to do yours online? Does it matter if you do it online or over the phone?February 15, 2016 at 4:25 pm #4140240
Has anybody who I’d verified on 2/9 or b4 got a did or refund?February 15, 2016 at 4:05 pm #4140226
I just found out today (filed1/15 accepted 1/19) that I had to do ID verify. Apparently my letter is in the mail.
I went online and did mine. It just asked me a few questions about my past information on my returns (verify an address I’ve lived at previously, name a car that I had previously registered, a number from my 2015 tax form I submitted this year)February 15, 2016 at 3:23 pm #4140208
I also have to verify my id. Does anyone know what kind of questions they ask? Are they pretty basic or should you have your taxes from 14 and 15 with you when you call? Also, w-2″s?February 15, 2016 at 3:14 pm #4140205
Over the phone at the 21st day.February 15, 2016 at 2:36 pm #4140195
For those who had to verify and have a DDD did you verify online or over the phone??February 15, 2016 at 2:36 pm #4140194

I FILED 1/20 NOTICED THAT EVERYONE THAT FILED AFTER ME RECEIVE THEIR REFUND EXCEPT ME SO I CALLED AND SO OF COURSE THEY TOLD ME I HAD TO VERIFY MY IDENTITY AND SO I DID ON 2/11 IN THE AM BUT AS OF TODAY 2/15
NO UPDATE! ANYONE VERIFIED ON 2/11?February 15, 2016 at 9:34 am #4140006
I filed on 1/18 accepted on 1/19, bars disappeared on 1/29 no tax topic verified identity on 2/5 still no update and cannot order return transcriptFebruary 15, 2016 at 7:56 am #4139974
Lost Bars: 2/7
Verified ID: 2/10
No updates since 2/10
The man I talked to was very nice. Completed the verification and said that he was releasing the hold on my return and that it would be up to 9 weeks (April 13) before I would receive a letter or my refund. I called the tax advocate office they said it could be up to June 5 before I see a refund if they cannot help. From what I read this is because many, if not all, of us self-prepared our taxes. Lesson learned. I will let my credit union prepare my taxes next year. To say I need this money is an understatement.February 15, 2016 at 7:17 am #4139966
Filed 1/20 ID Verified 2/11 still no change! Is IRS open today?February 15, 2016 at 7:08 am #4139965

Hello everyone, here’s my situation

I filed 1/19, Got accepted 1/20…Bars went missing on 1/30, waited my 21 days & called the IRS on 2/9 & was told I need to ID verify. Passed that & was told the “wait 9 weeks” bull crap. Was able to order both acct & return transcripts on 2/13 but MY bars are STILL missing hopefully tomorrow morning I hear something if not I’m calling an advocate this is all nonsense seriously. ALL these years I’ve never had a problem.February 14, 2016 at 10:57 am #4139777
I am glad I stumbled across this forum. I will disclose my history first:
ID Verified : 2/11/2016
Mine seems to be a little different from everyone elses. I didn’t download the WMR nor did I ever check the status because for the last two years it has not been accurate. However, I based my dates on the 21 days from acceptance. When my refund did not show in my bank on the 21st day, I contacted the IRS. I was told that I needed ID verify. I called and the first lady I talked to said I was not able to do it online or over the phone I had to go into a local office(this was Tuesday the 9th). So on Thursday the 11th I was able to get off a little early and went into the office. When I got there the representative told me that I would have to wait until I actually got a letter and to bring it with me. So on my hour drive home I called the ID verification number again and they were able to do the verification over the phone. Of course, now I had questions. I asked about how long would the hold up be and I was told 9 weeks but generally 2 to 4 weeks. I asked why was I chosen, the representative informed me that the IRS had been hacked a month ago and those who were affected by the hack (in other words those whose information was compromised ) were asked to ID verify. She also informed me that one of two things could happen. Either I would get another letter in the mail asking me to bring in my W2s or the refund would get accepted and I would recieve it. She also informed me that the IRS would send a letter if I was compromised.
Yesterday the 13th, I recieved two letters, one asking me to ID verify (done), one telling me my information has been compromised during the hack. I plan to follow up Tuesday.
But I still have no refund and cannot order my transcripts.
This is the second year in a row that the IRS had claimed being “hacked” so it’s either true or a ploy to delay paying people, we will never know.
I will continue to post my progress or the lack there of. Hope this helps.February 14, 2016 at 7:59 am #4139713
I id verify on 2/10 and still hasn’t got a DDD. I’m hoping with you though. Cross fingers for a DDD for all of us Monday morning.February 14, 2016 at 7:50 am #4139711
Anyone ID Verify on 2/11 that has been given a DDD? Hopefully by early tomorrow morning!! Will IRS still work and update even though tomorrow is a “holiday”?February 13, 2016 at 10:11 am #4139362
The IRS is open today from 9-5. I had to call today as it’s my 21st day. Accepted on the 23rd and found out today I had to ID verify, called the number answered all questions and the hold was taken off. I called the IRS back after the lady told me the hold was off and it should be 9 weeks, the man I spoke to at the IRS did see the hold had been taken off so she did it correctly now just the waiting game hopefully it will only take about 10 days that’s what I’ve been seeing on quite a few different searches.February 13, 2016 at 7:35 am #4139219
Accepted 1/19, I’D verify 2/10… is seems like ppl who ID verified on 2/9 were updated today.. maybe us 2/10’s will update next Sat… sucks but gives me some hope#!February 13, 2016 at 7:31 am #4139214

@Kit0Kat2009 Congrats! Unfortunately I am still on that message we received your return and are processing it. I was able to order return transcript yesterday but I did not get an update… (bangs head on wall). Hopefully WMR still hasnt finished updating.February 13, 2016 at 5:23 am #4139156
thats crazy i id verified 2 weeks ago, mainly a week before i found out that i actually had to verify my id. im seeing people who filed waaaaay after me verify id and within 3 or 4 days to a week they get a ddd. dont get me wrong congrats to the ones that got it, i feel good about yall getting yours but the irs better be lucky they aint open this weekend cause i will let them have it. if people are getting ddd dates within that time frame and im still waiting, thats very unfair. my old address is the only address pulling up for transcript, which is weird. they lied to me bout getting a tax advocate, even after telling them i had a hardship. this is crazy, i need that money and they are giving me the run around. its been a whole month since i filed my taxes.February 13, 2016 at 4:51 am #4139145
Okay! Got DDD FINALLY!!! filed on 1/18 accepted 1/19 ID VERIFY 2/9 and requested return transcripts on 2/12 and today 2/13 at 3AM got DDD of 2/18! Good LUCK EVERYONE!!! Shouldn’t be to long…. :)February 13, 2016 at 4:42 am #4139138
Almost woke my baby when I screamed.. I figured what the hell.. I checked at 2 am and nothing!! Check again at 4:30 am..
The nightmare of last year made me crazy!!!
I hope and wish all id verifiers to get processed fair and fast!!
Now my brain is still going crazy.. It’s like you have a DDD.. They can’t take it back now.. Or can they ?.. No that’s crazy.. Or is it??.. I should screen cap it.. How would that help?.. I think the nightmare of last year and it started this year has officially cracked me.. I’ll forever be slightly crazier..February 12, 2016 at 7:33 pm #4138983
I called today 16 days after I filed. Was told to do an income verification. I just got finished. She said 9 weeks. I was hoping for a DDD tomorrow. But if you were able to order transcripts you should update tonight during the big update. I wish if I would have known sooner. I never lost any bars still 152 and 21 days. Blah. This sucks. I have a car needing inspected and my vacation next month.February 12, 2016 at 6:55 pm #4138972
UPDATE I can now order return trans under my new address, maybe ill see a DDD here shortly? so it took a week exactly to ID VERIFY to get transcripts so maybe 2 weeks from when you verify youll get your fundsFebruary 12, 2016 at 6:54 pm #4138971
You gave me hope . I verified 2/10 and passed and the lady I talked to today said as soon as you are able to order transcripts then a day or two should have a DDD. Good luckFebruary 12, 2016 at 6:52 pm #4138970
I was accepted on 1/14. On 2/2 I lost my bars. Called the IRS on 2/9 and was told I had to verify my identity. I did and I passed. Then today, 2/12, I was finally able to order my transcriptFebruary 12, 2016 at 6:37 pm #4138966
Filed and accepted 1/22/16. Bars disappeared 2/8 with tax topic 152. Spoke to my tax preparer yesterday and she assured me all was good and it’s a waiting game. Did some research and decided on my own to go online and verify my id. It was successful and the message said 6 weeks. I’m hoping it doesn’t take that long. Has anyone had this experience before and actually received their return in a week or so?February 12, 2016 at 6:35 pm #4138965
What do they ask? Which docs should I have when I call? Did anyone have to call 8008305084? ThanksFebruary 12, 2016 at 6:17 pm #4138955
I am in the same boat as Stef. I verified my identity on Tuesday and I am finally able to request a return transcript. From everything I have read being able to print a return transcript means they have signed off on your return and that you should have your money in the next round of DD. If so then it looks like they can get a ID verification done in a week. I will post once I have my cash.February 12, 2016 at 4:25 pm #4138898
where do I look at topic 9001 at?February 12, 2016 at 3:42 pm #4138856
Look under the topic 9001 code…people have gotten there DDD or finally can order there return transcripts since doing ID verification last week! Some hope there!February 12, 2016 at 3:36 pm #4138852
my bars went missing along with tax topic on 1/29 I verify my identity on 2/5, they said 9 weeks also, I wonder if anyone who had to verify identity has a direct deposit date yet. my tax man said he has seen it come a week after.February 12, 2016 at 10:29 am #4138533
Well on Tuesday I called and verified ID and today I was able to order return transcript! I hope this is good news. I am hoping tomorrow to get a DDD or at least have my mulah by FRI 02/19! Good luck everyone!February 12, 2016 at 8:45 am #4138372
Mercedes, did ur cousin that verified get their money in their account yet? Because I was supposed to get mine too but I just spoke with the IRS and she says they do not have any ddd in the system for me yet. My return is still being reviewed. So now I’m confused, WMR says money sent. She specifically told me it hasn’t been sent yet. I’m pissed right now. I was told to call if I don’t get it within 9 weeks. WMR is fraudulentFebruary 12, 2016 at 8:40 am #4138371
I verified Tuesday and woke up with no bars just tax topic 152 and we are still processing your return on a plus side they finally have my updated address on file but I could not order return transcripts. I got my taxes last year on the 13th hopefully this year too another thing my cousin verified last Friday or Thursday and got an Ddd 2/10February 12, 2016 at 7:56 am #4138346
I filed 1/28, accepted 1/28. Bars and tax topic missing on 2/6. I don’t message on here but I read through a lot of the post. I read where someone went to the verify website and input their info, so after not getting a return transcript today I did it and it successfully went through. It wouldn’t allow you to unless it is needed by the irs. I tried my significant other’s info and it wouldn’t allow it. I was able to get my account transfer on 2/5. It told me to allow six weeks but everyone else is saying it told them 9 weeks. I wish I have known when my bars became missing. I never talked to a irs rep. but will today to let them know that I did do it. I am a 05er so maybe they will put my bars back today lol.February 12, 2016 at 7:31 am #4138329
Filed 1/26 ordered transcripts on 2/5 ID VERIFY on 2/10. WMR has not updated. Still have a processing messageFebruary 11, 2016 at 3:21 pm #4137994
I verified 2/2, still no updates and still can’t order my return transcript. I called to see if there was anything else holding my return. The irs rep said no, and that it could take anywhere up to 9 weeks from 2/2. She said some people get it in 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks, that everyone is different. I think it’s all bull$hit..if you do an identity verification you should get yours faster than someone who filed and didn’t do the verification. Makes no damn senseFebruary 11, 2016 at 1:53 pm #4137952
I accepted 1/19, ID Verify 2/10 no updates. Please all ID verified keep us updated on any updates :)February 11, 2016 at 1:45 pm #4137949
Has anyone gotten any good news. Like WMR update a SBTPG update or anything good. Maybe a deposit in the bank. Come on people please shed light on my day .
I have had no change myselfFebruary 10, 2016 at 3:36 pm #4137227
What is the Number to verify your Identity?February 10, 2016 at 2:57 pm #4137181
i just did my verify i was nice so she was nice i ask about where my refund and she said i would not be able to use it. i would have to call the IRS number 800 829 1954 and talk to someone to look it up 9 weeks is a long time i guess there is nothing i can do but waitFebruary 10, 2016 at 1:48 pm #4137118
I also had to do the verification thing.. I filed 1/25 my progress bars disappeared 2/2 had tax code 152… did the verification thing yesterday 2/9/16 told me she would put it back in processing mode and I had to wait the 9 weeks.. I hope not :( I really needed that money so me and my kids can finally get out of my moms house and we can get a decent vehicle that works. And pay off bills :/February 10, 2016 at 10:49 am #4136914
I just ID verified but I didn’t get a letter in the mail. I felt anxious so I called they then told me after 40 mins on hold to verify and told me to call another number. I did and the lady I spoke with was super nice once she verified it was me. She then told me the same. I passed and should receive a letter or refund by 9 weeks. I thought that is a long time but I have seen people said they received their within a week so I’m not so disappointed.February 10, 2016 at 5:26 am #4136495
I’m also still sitting at one bar..
Tired of seeing others getting changes when they can’t even get our going!February 10, 2016 at 5:20 am #4136492
Well I checked the wmr website, no updates this morning. Still no bars and no tax topic. Anyone else who did the identity verification have a status yet?February 10, 2016 at 12:18 am #4136251
I had to ID Verify twice last week and still no movement no return transcripts etc.. so i was wondering if maybe my wife needs to ID Verify as well since we filed married filing jointly.
I tried going to idverify.irs.gov and it cannot verify her online using any address in any way that we have ever lived at. But i can order account transcripts under that old address, but when i call the IRS they have my new address on file.. Can anyone gimme a lil help here? I filed 1/14 accepted 1/15 wmr bar and a date will be provided status came 1/30 or 1/31
I am going to call my advocate at 7am if i dont see any movement tonight, ITS been 21+ days i need answersFebruary 9, 2016 at 11:56 pm #4136228

3/2 received ta
DDD 3/22February 9, 2016 at 10:08 pm #4136138
@dom i remember we spoke earlier and i told you nothing should of been wrong because my wife lost her bars then got hers back with the ddd of 2/10. today was my 21 days, so i called and spoke with the irs and she kept putting me on hold researching my info til she figured out that they were having a hard time verifying my id. luckily i done some research about a week ago and saw people saying they were told the missing bars meant they were under review because they needed to verify id. so what i did was went to the site and verified my id. just in case that was the issue and i could get a head start. and i knew something seemed strange because it was during the time my wife lost her bars and wanted answers just as bad as me. so once i passed it i told her to do the same. once she tried to verify, it wouldn’t let her. so i knew that was kinda weird and it meant a good thing for one of us, which it ended up being her. so then i tried to order my transcript, it didnt recognize me on file with my address. she tried and hers went through lol. and i kept hearing rumors that if your able to order your transcript then that mean they are done processing your return. i ignored it thinking it was just another rumor, but that next morning she got a ddd for 2/10 and i got still processing lol…………………….February 9, 2016 at 9:45 pm #4136112
They won’t let me id verify on phone.February 9, 2016 at 9:31 pm #4136093
I really feel like the irs made a bunch of people do that identity verification so that they can withhold numerous tax payers money for a while longer. Why are there so many people who have identity verification problems this year? My address, dependent and job have been the same for years. I call bull$hit on them.
