My situation and if anyone has any KNOWLEDGE please let me know!
I filed on 15th and was accepted 16th. I had 1 bar on wheres my refund until 2nd of Feb.
I received no letters in the mail. My transcripts the whole time were just 0’s. My transcript date read 16th until this morning went to 23rd and now back to 16th.
I called today regular IRS number they ask me questions and tell me to call a different 800 number which turns out to be ” ID Verify” number. I answer all their questions the guy says he is satisfied that I am who I say I am. He tells me that I will now be back to regular processing but could take up to 6 weeks now from today’s date.
MY QUESTIONS ARE:
Has anyone gone through this?
How long does it really take to get a refund after verifying my identity?
Is it really close to 6 weeks or much faster?

Same as me, my taxes were filed on 2/18 and were accepted the same day. Only to find out two weeks later I had to verify my identity. I called the IRS number verified who I was and passed. Told me it would take 4 to 6 weeks processing time… Its now 4/2/2015 and I have yet to hear anything about my refund!!! Its frustrating but what other choice do I have have.? If I’m not mistaken, this marks week number 3 going to the 4 the week. Maybe I will hear something next week about my refund. I’m hoping it won’t take 6 weeks or 8 weeks for them to deposit my refund. I wish the IRS would stop bullshittn and let go of my money. It seems like the people they pull to verify are the ones that actually work and put in man hours to provide for this country, while it takes no time for a person that’s illegally filing to get their refund in no time!!March 31, 2015 at 12:43 am #4110904
So..I filed Feb 22nd, refund has been processing now till the end of march. I have not gotten the letter, but was told there was identity theft issues that were delaying my approval. Not sure what you all mean by bars..I see no bars when I go to WMR. Should I go do the id identify thing proactively even though I have not gotten a letter yet?March 27, 2015 at 12:03 pm #4110830
Filed taxes electronically on Feb 10th. Got the 5071c letter in the mail Mar 6th and I verified online on the 6th of Mar. Said it was successful and I had to wait 6 weeks. Called the IRS Mar 25th and they said it was verified on the 12th of Mar (not the 6th) and I had to allow 8 weeks to process. Frustrated that the date keeps getting pushed back.March 24, 2015 at 5:18 pm #4110705
i filed feb 5 , 2015 bars disappeared a few days after then my 21 days passed and still nothing now its 3/24/15 and a few days ago i decided to call irs and was told to id verify did that today i was told 6 to 8 weeks to process . its just the waiting game and we have no choice but to wait thats itMarch 21, 2015 at 8:03 am #4110544
Filed February 2. Accepted Feb 2..
Bars went missing and status said that my refund was still being processed and a date would be provided.
Called IRS on Feb 27. Had to go through verifying my identity. Was told that it would take 6-8 weeks to process and be received.
Called IRS on the 16th of March. Was told that refund was reviewed on March 11 and would take an additional 9 weeks.
Checked WMR On March 19, status says that refund has been accepted and is now being reviewed.
Checked WMR on March 21.. Refund is going to be direct deposited on March 25..March 18, 2015 at 10:29 pm #4110450

Filed on 2/5.. Verified my Id on 3/11.. they told me on 3/11 to wait 4-6 weeks.. it’s now 3/18 and nothing yet.. no bars back on wmr… just waiting at this point.
I’ve never had to do this before, nor have I ever had my identity stolen, so to have my taxes held up for some precautionary bureaucratic bullshit is aggravating.March 18, 2015 at 1:19 am #4110408

Same boat as all of you!
–Filed & Accepted 2/17
–Bars disappeared a few days after and got the dreaded “still processing”
–Just this week got 5071C IRS letter in the mail 3/15 to verify identity although letter said was mailed 3/04
–Went online to verify identity – got a “congratulations” and a “could take up to 6 weeks”
Now … just … waiting … to … get … my … money … back … in … my … pocket … !
Someone tell us some good news !!!!!!!!!March 14, 2015 at 6:41 am #4110208
I’m in the same boat. I filed with TT on 2/10/15. It Was accepted by the IRS by 2/12/15 with a DD date of 3/5/15. I received the 5071c letter on 3/1/15 and verified my identity online via the identify IRS site listed in the letter. The website told me to allow up to 6 weeks for my refund. WMR still says processing and it’ll be 2 weeks on Sunday. I called the IRS today and was advised that my identity was verified and I’ve done everything I need to do. The agent I spoke to told me it could take up to 8 weeks from 3/2/15. I’ve read from a few people that it took anywhere from 3-16 weeks to get their refunds after the identity verification. I sure hope it’s no longer than 6 weeks . Has anyone received their refund in less than 6 weeks after verifying their identity?March 12, 2015 at 12:37 pm #4110125

Are there any success storie? , Please!!! This is the first time I have experienced this. Just verified my ID online yesterday, of course I still do not have any bars; only still processing.
Don’t want to except that it could be another 6 weeks when is usually only takes me 6 days with turbo tax. I filed Jan 31, 2015.March 10, 2015 at 8:32 pm #4110013
I got the 5071C letter today. I’m not surprised, as I’d heard that people eligible for Education Credit tend to get pulled. Still, it’s a pain. For those who need the phone number, it’s 800-830-5084, the web site is idverify.irs.gov. I didn’t call the number, just did the web form. The message I got online is that I was successful and to expect my refund to take another 6 weeks.March 7, 2015 at 10:57 am #4109848
What kind of questions does the IRS ask when you call in to verify your identity?March 3, 2015 at 8:53 pm #4109575
IRS rep I called told me I had to call this number to verify …. 1-800-830-5084 and/or website identity verification service (idverify.irs.gov)February 27, 2015 at 6:37 pm #4109190
DO NOT WORRY! You will all get your refund. I filed Jan 14. Bars disappeared Jan 28. Called Irs Feb 15, was told I needed to verify my identity. Called the number I was given, verified myself on Feb 19 and was told I would receive my return between 2-6 weeks. As of this morning on WMR, my bars have reappeared, just waiting on refund to be approved!February 27, 2015 at 9:16 am #4109138
ID verified and they said should have an update in 6 days. That was weird. She said it was due to my moving to a different state.February 27, 2015 at 8:19 am #4109131
I tried to ID verify online (due to n/a on my transcripts and unable to verify) and it said that they could not process my return until I CALLED IN and ID verified. Why have verify online if they won’t process it? It says I have to call the 1-800 number to ID verify. Anyone else going through this? I called the 1-800 number and of course it says call back another day all lines are busy. I guess at this point I just keep trying. I didn’t get my return until June in 2014. No explanation just 1121 and wait. Now this year it feels like a repeat delay, delay, delay.February 25, 2015 at 11:51 am #4108900
THis sucks so freakin bad im glad its just a simple verification process instead of an actual identity theft where they bullshit you around all year and you dont get anything at all until the end of the year from what i hear…. what a disappointment when we wait all year for this to catch up and pay things off for broke people lol but oh well seems like it may only take a few more weeks so keep our heads up lolFebruary 25, 2015 at 9:13 am #4108879

I have been through this 2 years ago and it only took me a week to get my refund after ID verify ! My cousin also took about 6 days after verifying. The 6 weeks in a window frame to keep us from calling so much in between the wait. I am going through it again. I’m sure it will only take up to 7 days. I’m not worried done it and been there.February 13, 2015 at 2:31 am #4106575
I still haven’t got my refund n I don’t have any codes on my wmr. Does that mean I’m okay n that it’s still processing. It is my first time filing and I’m scared that something wrong. It jus says still processing on my wmr :) someone please help meFebruary 12, 2015 at 9:36 pm #4106493
I called in today if your status on WMR is saying ” We cannot provide any information about your return then you have to call the ID theft number @ 1-800-830-5084, the wait was long though about 1 hour long. But they ask you a series of questions like refund amount, ssn, address, name, dob, fathers name, prior years return of income w-2,1099-misc., and the sort. she said i wsput back into the processing files and will take 6 weeks but WMR still has not changed though.February 12, 2015 at 2:47 pm #4106368
what is the 800 number to verify your idFebruary 12, 2015 at 10:37 am #4106250
Yes Im on same situation. Filed on 1/10 no letters I decided to call last Monday and id was verified. 6 weeks he said and keep waiting. No changes on wmr nothing. It is really frustratingFebruary 12, 2015 at 9:38 am #4106227
What is the number for ID Verify?February 12, 2015 at 7:29 am #4106185
what number are you calling to verify your id?February 12, 2015 at 2:38 am #4106163
I am also going through this….. It’s been a week since I had to do the ID verify thing and still nothing everytime I try to check the statue online all I get is it is still processing and will get a refund date when available….February 10, 2015 at 11:56 am #4105240
My taxes were also review for ID theft last year and waited until April to get my refund (TA helped alot). I was never given a PIN to file my taxes this year so I filed via TurboTax and was accepted 1/23. I called today and was told that my return is still being processed as my “information is being verified”. I was told this means it will take 6-8 weeks from 2/2/15 before I could get an update or refund. Since my 21 days will be on 2/13, I will call my TA on Monday for assistance as all my info (dependent, address, etc) is the same from 2013. It seems that once you have ID theft, it will haunt you forever….February 9, 2015 at 11:30 pm #4104934
I just went through this today. I filed on 1/20 and had the same issue with one bar, disappearing, all 0s…all that jazz. I spoke with an IRS rep and was told I had to verify my identity. After doing so, I was told anywhere from 2-8 weeks to process. I am hoping to see and update tomorrow, but have no idea exactly what happened or is happening. Just know, you are not alone and God bless.February 9, 2015 at 10:35 am #4104588
