    Received a letter 4464C from the IRS today. It states that my return was selected for further review and there was nothing for me to do. Also stated that it could take 60 days for me to get my refund. The letter was dated 2/3…the first day I could access my account transcripts. Nothing has changed with my WMR…it still says processing, 1 bar and topic 152. Has anyone else received on of these letters? And if you have, does it really take 60 days to receive your refund?

    So I called AGAIN today. Got a rep with the nastiest attitude (Mrs. Moore). Not only was she extremely condescending, but the information she gave me was inconsistent with the information I’ve been giving the last three times I’ve called (3 months, 1 call a month). So now, supposedly, I’m supposed to be waiting 30 days from March 25. Mind you, I filed BEFORE tax season even opened and it ends TOMORROW. So beyond frustrated.

    I refuse to go through this next year. Changed my tax status to exempt today since I get all my taxes back every year anyway. Let them wait for me next year.

    I noticed folks that recieved 4464c notice mention faxing W2 etc. The info requested was it on the notice? I needed no more info. So trying to narrow down what it could be.

    If you’re still looking on this page now that you say I got your ddd I’m just wondering how is it that you said they did an amended return for you but they’re not sending a check? If you look up anything about amended refunds they don’t do direct deposits they only send checks so I’m trying to figure out how is it that you’re getting a direct deposit????!

    I ordered mine today again since I can get mine online with a credit card to verify my identity. So yes I ordered it today and it still has my processing date of march 6th. That’s what made me get a tax advocate. Now I’m just waiting for the processor to put it in my papers so they can approve it finally and send me my money. Like I said in a previous post from what I’ve seen is it takes around the 2nd week of people sending in the documents so I’m hoping by either Wednesday’s or Saturday’s I get my update

    I have a different cycle code on my transcript but the rest of the codes are the same. My processing date is still showing as march 6th so it doesn’t seem like that date means anything at all. I think it’s code 571 that means reverse the 570 code which means review or something like that. Code 846 means the refund is being released so that’s the only code that I even care about showing up. If i don’t see that then I don’t bother looking at anything else on my transcript. Good luck

    So it’s been a little more than a week since I faxed in the paperwork that my tax advocate asked for and still nothing has happened yet. I talked to her last Friday and she said nothing happened and for me to wait patiently. From what others have said it seems like they’ve got their ddd about 2 weeks after they sent everything in so hopefully I see something change by Wednesday or Saturday’s update. I can’t wait to put all of this behind me and I can move forward. Good luck to everyone else

    Cindy and Lauren,
    I am sorry. Been through this, I can fully empathize. IRS really really needs to do a better job.

    Update on mine: Now the WMR page is showing ‘Refund Approved’ and that

    Your tax refund is scheduled to be sent to your bank by March 22, 2017.
    If your refund is not credited to your account by March 27, 2017, check with your bank to see if it has been received.

    Hey guys, I know it’s been a while but here is my update and back story…..
    1. I filed 1/21 and was accepted on 1/23.
    2. I received a 4464C letter on 2/7 dated for. 2/2.
    3. I was able to order my account and return transcripts on 2/8. Account transcript had a hold code with the 2/27 date.
    4. On 2/27 I called to get an advocate.
    5. On 2/28 my advocate called me and informed me that my wages were off your $61 and requested that I fax her a copy of my original 1040A with my wages crossed out and the correct wages above them and to sign the last page.
    6. On 3/14 my amended return was assigned to someone, I wasn’t aware that I had done one….
    7. On 3/16 the amendment dept closed my case and I should have a DDD in the next couple of days.
    *** I can not access any information on where’s my amended return, where’s my refund still says we have received your return with my old return amount and they told me my account transcript won’t update for 2 weeks.

    @CarmelPop,
    Go to IRS.GOV, under Tools, select Get a Transcript, then select Online, register–you will need your phone, after login in, select Federal Tax as the ‘Reason’ for Transcript, The select 2016 in Record of Account. A new popup windows will have your Transcript. You can view online and also save it as .xhtml page on your then change extension from .xhtml to pdf if you want to.

    The Transcript shows more updated and accurate info then the WMR page–which STILL shows me as your tax refund being processed!!

    No, I didn’t contact any Advocate. My taxes were e-filed probably between 3-5 of February and the 4464C letter was dated 10 Feb.

    Maybe, the Big Govt came to this page, traced me down, and decided to ‘pacify’ me. So whine like I have been doing on this page–to get their ears :)

    571 Additional Action Resolved on 03/13/2017

    So pretty safe to say that my Refund will be coming via Direct Deposit on 3 April. Yay!!!

    I hope all others stuck have their Refunds be made asap. This site has been very very useful for me and the feedback provided by others has been great. Thank you all!

    I have been reading this thread every day in the hope that things are moving for other people–kind of trying to vicariously get some hope! My situation hasn’t changed a bit. I had checked the Transcript after the magical date of 03/13/17–nothing had changed there and even the magical date was the same.

    I completely feel your pain. Now that April is approaching, I wonder how this works. Does it automatically release on 4/15? Or is it another case of sit and wait until they are good and darn ready? I’ve been waiting since Jan 17, have called twice and gotten nowhere. They can’t even tell me what the 4464C letter is for. Only credits I claimed were my son and his daycare expenses. One job all year, same one as last year. I did get a 10k or so pay bump, but got about the same increase last year with no additional holdup.

    Had to stop checking WMR everyday, it was seriously stressing me out. One or two of us got a DDD last week, so maybe this week is it (trying to stop my eyes from rolling as I type that).

    Good luck!

    So I was kinda bored and decided to call IRS again today 3/14 man who I spoke to told me he had no information about the process that on his end it didn’t show him any updates of any sort asked him what time frame the IRS has to work on my tax and H-E said he was sorry that gen just didn’t have any info that gen knew it was frustrating and that all I could do was wait for a letter from them telling me if they needed info or that the review was over so i guess i just have to wait till April :-(

    I’m sure every situation is different but I didn’t have to show proof of a hardship after calling into them. They asked what it was and that was it. I’m not trying to tell everyone to call and lie but that’s what happened with me so I’m assuming it’ll be the same for anyone calling them for help

    Even before I got the tax advocate the IRS was able to tell me what they needed from me but they said for me to still wait the 60 days. My case was my employer not reporting my wages or withholding so that’s what I faxed into my advocate and she’s now pushing it through. I’ll let you guys know when I receive an update. Hopefully sometime this week

    Same for me! The code still says 570 with Processing Date of 03/13/2017;while today is that blessed date but nothing has changed! What are they processing? Human Genome?! So frustrating. There’s nothing we can do about this except to wait. We can’t claim hardship which is required for Tax Advocate access.

    @katie,
    Thank you for the empathy. Yes, it’s frustrating. We paid $23,000+ in Federal and State taxes combined because of the lump sum payout and a chunk of that should have come back to us by end of February to make up for the less income the previous year.
    IF the IRS needs something then they should contact us instead of stringing us along for months and months and stonewalling us through their website, their phone access and through the unhelpful codes in the Transcripts.

    @meengla. This is so ridiculous. If I didn’t see any movement I was going to call the 61 day but wth??? I don’t have any hardships and not getting back these big returns like I’ve been seeing on here. I’m not calling yet because I know I will get well it hasn’t been 60 days yet from the IRS. When you owe them they sure want their damn money!!

    #4189809 Reply

    Meengla

    @Caramel,
    Yes, mine still (as of a few minutes ago) says the same ‘being processed’. And I don’t know why I am having this problem–except for the large Federal refund and for that there’s a perfect explanation I have given below. This is a Joint return and our Deductions were Standard. This year we didn’t declare any rental income unlike in the past because that unit has been turned over to an in-law residence. The wife did have an unemployment 1099G form and a modest W2. So things have been different from the previous year but extremely honest return.

    But what @TP saying below is worrying: We all have to CALL them before things can get moving? Every time I had called the 800 number I have been stone-walled–the same message about being processed. I guess I need to find a local Tax Advocate some how.

    This is so unprofessional of IRS and not fair!! Had I not found a new job very recently I would have been really hurting because I was counting on the large refund by the end of February.

    Thank you all again. This page is really helpful.

    @Caramel. My return says it’s processing. Filed Jan 25 and got 4464 letter feb 17. I can view my transcripts online and have a 570 hold dated 3/13. I don’t have any of the extra credits most have. Cycle 20170805 dated 3/13. Seeing if it will change after 3/13. This has never happened.

    @sharon thats a tough one I didn’t know it was a joint return….however I still have the hope that it return back to the ‘We have received your tax return and it is being processed” means they are actively working on it… when mined changed back to the “We have received your tax return and it is being processed two weeks later I got my direct deposit date!! Thats why I said as long as it say “WE RECEIVED YOUR TAX RETURN AND IT IS BEING PROCESSED” thats GOOD NEWS bc that other message “YOUR TAX RETURN IS STILL PROCESSING DATE WILL BE PROVIDED WHEN AVAILABLE” that means its still in REVIEW SOMETHING IS WRONG!!! I HOPE THIS HELPS…!!! LET ME KNOW

    @sharon did your message on WMR go from “Your tax return is still processing and a date will be provided when available to “We have received your tax return and it is being processed”? After you verified your identity? I need to know your exact messages because I’ll tell you where you stand if they are processing or if it is sitting on someone desk by the message on WMR!!

    I didn’t get any letter but after having no bars no codes and still processing for weeks I figured something was wrong and I knew what it was. Name change this year. IRS kept telling me nothing was wrong it just wasn’t processed yet. I got a tax advocate and within 2 minutes she was able to tell me that yes the IRS system kicked out my return. They transferred me to someone else, they verified that my new name matched SS number, I had to spend another 15 minutes verifying my identity and they said they “closed” the problem on 2/15. I called the IRS a few days later just to confirm. My WMR changed to being processed, my husbands changed to still being processed. I still cannot order either transcript so I know it’s not moving. Tax advocate will not return calls. IRS will give me no info because I got an advocate. I did call the advocate helpline and they told me that they didn’t see any other problem but it still hasn’t processed yet and they have not responded to the advocates request. Told me to just keep waiting. Ugh. Any ideas?

    @Meengla if it changes on WMR to “We have Received your tax return and it is still processing and a refund date will be giving when available”….That means it is on Someones desk and you have to wait until they get to your refund… However I think you probably need to call an Advocate that is in your town!!

    @Meengla. I kept calling to find out why It was held up before I got the letter and they said that it was because of withholdings reported inaccurately, Do you know why yours is held up? As long as it says “We have Received your tax return and it is Processing”…that means they are Actively working on your refund!! That is a GOOOOODDD sign!!! Take it from me I know because I just got out of that Situation!! Let me know if you need anything else!!

    So everyone I got a tax advocate and talked to this lady today who told me that my employer did not send in any of my info and if I wouldn’t have called to get the their help that I would have just sat and waited the 60 days and then nothing would’ve happened. She told me what I had to do was show proof of income and withholding information on pay stubs and then after faxing it in she should be able to get my refund released within about a week. So if I was any of you who are just waiting I would reach out and find out exactly what they’re missing from you guys and don’t sit any longer because I’ve been waiting since feb 2nd and if I woulda called earlier I would have my refund by now. Goodluck

    @Caramel,
    Thanks for the info! And congrats! So mine says:
    “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.” and on the left side of the page there is the $ amount in front of the expected refund amount.
    Am I in some ‘good’ category?!

    Also, looks like you had to do something to make the process going. As others who had to get a Tax Advocate. But, for people like me, there is no communication from IRS since their letter dated 10 Feb. arrived.

    Hello everyone @HC and anyone that is waiting this is my story……. I filed January 26 2017 accepted January 27 2017..I filed EIC and the Additional Credit… February 4 I logged in WMR and had a message that says: “Your refund is still processing..a refund date will be given when available….. This message means something is Wrong with your return… I called the IRS and they said my withholdings for my Federal was inaccurate. They requested my original W2’s from my employer directly… I received a letter dated for February 4 2017 (but received Feb 8, 2017) saying I was under review because of the one or more thingd i filed or reported and I should have my refund within 60 days….February 24 my WMR updated to “We have received your tax return and it is being processed…..On March 4 2017 (a saturday) it updated to my refund date for March 8 2017… I got my refund today… March 7 2017. There is a Difference in the message “Your tax refund is still processing and a date will be given when available and the message “We have received your tax refund and it is being processed..!! Any questions please let me know… I did not wait the whole 60 days!! I hope this gives someone hope!!

    @denise and @Neicey,

    I am glad you shared the info. Thanks for the info. I was getting my hopes raised. So frustrating! This was a very simple return with two W2s, two 1099s. The only major difference from last year is the big Federal refund which the govt OWES me because of almost 40% taxes I paid last year on the payout. I had been waiting the around 21-25 Feb 2017 to actually get the refund–like I do every year. The State refund has come already but that was not so big.
    Come on IRS!

    Well my 4464c Letter had a 570 code, Additional account action pending with date of 03-06-2017 , which it has not updated yet, but USPS sent me a notification yesterday that a certified letter was sent to my address. The only 2 reasons that I can come up with for the letter is either they modified my return and they are letting me know or I’m getting audit.

    I’ll find out tomorrow when i get the letter.

    it might be good idea to get a tax advocate.those dates next to the codes on ur transcript does not mean the hold will fall off… Those are dates from the system telling the system to run your account again it can either lift the hold on that day or just generate a new date if the irs doesn’t have what they need. I contacted a tax advocate and was informed i needed to supply a employment verification letter. I gave him that on the 28th and yesterday i was back in processing and the hold was lifted. I will keep every one updated.

    Not to be a downer but a lot of us have as as of date of 3/6/2017. We’ve been waiting for weeks, thinking it would update yesterday only to be disappointed. Some people received a DDD of 3/8 last Friday, some received a code 971 and got a letter telling them to send something or allow more time. Then some, like me, haven’t seen any change at all. No letters, no new codes, not even a straight answer for which of those 4 things on the 4464C I’m being reviewed for.

    I really hope you see some movement soon! Keep us updated if you do.

    No updates on my refund either. But, if the Processing date of 13 March 2017 has any bearing, I should be hearing a good news that day! I have never waited so anxiously for a refund for so many MONTHS! It’s a large Federal refund because of a cash payout previous year…

    Yes the new processing date is March 6th. I don’t think the processing date means anything at all while we’re on review. Once we get code 846 then we’ll finally know they’ve released the refund. I’ve read people in the past who got the same letter and nothing happened with them until the 60 days were up and 2 weeks after that they finally got their ddd. This is frustrating

    @HC it was the IRS that said they had to receive my W2’s directly from the employer because my tax professional made an error so they wanted to retrieve them directly from the employer.. My employer already sent them in and I’m still waiting. I tried to retrieve my transcripts via online however I did not have a cell phone in my name so it would not let me get them. It let me order my refund transcript by mail, I did not try to get the account transcript though. I am new to this stuff so I thought if I ordered my refund transcript it would tell me something. I see most people order both. Should I go back and try to order my account tanscript?

    I know Illinois started doing a lot of the same verifications as federal last year so I don’t see the state releasing my refund and the federal not ever going to release mine. Of course federal refunds are a lot more but it’s basically the same protocols.

    Well Illinois is releasing my refund tomorrow. I just got the update cause that was sitting and doing nothing as well just like federal. It said it was processed for the last 2 weeks but a date would be provided. Maybe this is a sign that my federal will be getting released soon. I’ll be checking Wednesday morning early when they update to see if my bars come back with a ddd. Fingers crossed.

    No, as of today my the date next to my 570 is still 3/06/2017. The IRS rep said that based on the date of my letter, I should call on/after 3/25 if I dont see any progress. Technically my 60 days would be like 4/2, but I’m not gonna argue with an earlier date.

    Same here, no change. I’m getting a little annoyed. Filed 1/17, accepted 1/18, 4464C letter dated 2/2, acct/return trans with 570 code 2/18 and that was the last progress I’ve seen. I called today (last call was a few weeks ago) and couldn’t get any information. The gentleman was kind enough to look up my account but gave me the same generic info from the 4464C letter. I asked if there was anything I could send in to speed up the process and he said no. I was told to call back if I hadn’t seen any additional letters or WMR updates by 3/25.

    Man, that sucks. I have a simple return, just me and my kiddo (who I have claimed since birth). Only credits I have are the child tax credit and the daycare credit. I always use my tax money to pay for summer school. I’ll pick up extra work and we’ll get by without it, but its sure gonna hurt!

    I received the letter feb 2nd and talked to the IRS. They said they haven’t received one of my w2s from my employer so I have to wait to see what happens within the 60 days. On wmr it says we’ve received your refund and it’s being processed. I’ve been able to order both transcripts for a couple weeks now and it says processing date feb 27th and I don’t know what that even means. It looks and sounds like everyone in this boat just has to wait it out and see if they send you another letter asking for anymore info and then we’ll be waiting again after we send whatever they ask for into them. The best thing is to hope for them to just push your return thru after they review it or it’s gonna be a long wait. Even longer than the 60 days

    My federal was accepted on 1/17, I received the letter on 2/8-but dated 2/2. When I was checking where’s my refund it was directing me to tax topic 1052 (EITC) but now when I check it just reflects we have received your refund and it’s being processed.

    I called the IRS and was able to speak to someone and they advised they couldn’t really say what or how long it could be before we would receive our taxes. My letter reflects one or more for the following is the reasons: Income reported, tax withholdings, claims for tax credits or business income. I can only assume it’s for the EITC which hasn’t changed. Praying we don’t have to wait the full 60 days.

    How do you see what code you are falling under?

    I really believe they did this letter thing to verify alot of the EIC credits being filed this year. I feel as if it would delay the IRS issuing peoples refunds so they had to find a way allow them more time. Alot of people who received this letter is now ordering their transcripts and is noticing a new date of 2/27. When i received my transcripts on 2/10 I had a 2/20. 2/20 is tomorrow and i still dont have a new update, however i did order a new transcript to see if my codes changed from all 0 to now some codes i can look into. Hopefully we see some movement by next week. Filed 1/23 accepted 1/23 received letter 2/8 ordered transcripts 2/9 updated to path 2/10 updated to still processing 2/16 no update on 2/17. called IRS on 2/18 stated i have to wait 45 days then she said 60 days.

    When WMR did not update this morning, I called the IRS. One agent told me that a prior tax year is under review and a letter would go out later this month. She said that the 570 code was due to the PATH act and could update at any time. It did not sound right and the agent was not really giving me any information. The second agent I spoke with said that in addition we were receiving the 4464C letter for the current tax year. She strongly suggested that I contact the Tax Advocate hotline. I contact the hotline and due to the fact that we had documented financial hardship, they agreed to take our case. Due to the holiday, the earliest I would receive a call would be Tuesday; Thursday the latest.

    This has happened for the past two years since our income dropped enough to qualify for EIC. Sometimes the refund gets released automatically and some time it required the assistance of an advocate to get my refund deposited or even a date.

    In another call, I was told that the hold was normal due to the PATH act and that it could release on its own.

    The advocate hotline could not even see the 4464C letter. In other words, get an advocate if you can document a legitimate hardship. They do required documentation but it’s worth the extra steps in order to get actual answers!

    I had filed with H&R on 1/24 (no credits) and it said I was accepted on 1/24 but really was accepted until 1/29. I had received a 4464c letter on 2/7 but it was dated 2/3 and the following 2/11 update, I could finally order transcripts and my bars went away along with the tax topic 152. From my understanding when I called is when “Where’s my refund” status did the update, is when I actually went into review. The 570 in your transcript along with the date beside it should be when the review should fall off. This might not be the case for everyone else since everyone taxes are different. Most of the time if you are getting errors from not being able to order transcripts then all that means is you just need to verify your ID.

I spoke to a rep today and she informed me I just have to wait 60 days.

    It means that for some reason the computer systems couldn’t process your return and it has to be processed by an actual person, which takes time. Just be patient and if there is something that they need from you they will send you another letter letting you know exactly what they need you to send.

    I filed 2/6/17 with H&R Block
    Received an Email from H&R Block on 2/6 that the Refund was accepted by the IRS

    Come this morning (2/18/17), I find a 4464C Letter dated 2/14/17

    Called the IRS for additional information, only for them to say my refund is being reviewed and I currently do not have a DDD.

    Perhaps I jumped the gun as it has not even been 21 days yet, but the possibility of waiting until April for my return alarmed me.

    Erin…I filed Jan 25 and received the letter feb 17 yesterday.
    I can’t order return transcripts. It still says being processed with tax code 152 and how much my return is. I have never had his happen to me before. Any help would be appreciated. I only have one qualifying child and I didn’t get the extra credits or that path message every time is talking about.

    I filed on 1/12, accepted on 1/13. I received the 4464C letter at the end of January. I did claim the EITC and ACTC. I have been able to order my account and return transcripts. I received my return, but not my account yet. On WMR, it states that my return has been received and is being processed without any additional codes or anything. My “expected refund” is still there, but no bars or anything else. I’d love to hear from anyone else that may have been through this and what the outcome is/was. I hate the idea of any of this being held up because of something silly. I’ll keep ya posted!!

    Received the same letter today as well. Still processing and topic 152. I had orange bars but disappeared on Monday. Noe just saying processing and the tax topic. This is the first time ever something like this has happened to me. Nothing has changed for my return. Just one qualifying child but no eic or additional credit for my son. I guess it’s wait and see….

    Filed on 1/26, accepted 1/27. Received 4464c letter on 2/9. Able to order return transcript on 2/17. Had one bar until 2/11 and disappeared. Have heard nothing else…hoping that since I can finally order the return transcript, it’s ok and being processed. Have had the same info (job, bank account) for the past 10 years. Last year I had to verify my identity. UGH! Hoping for a DD soon!

    If I implied that I thought the letters were sent by mistake, that is not what I meant. I thought I was pretty clear that, in my opinion, the letters were sent to keep filers at arms length (due to the late processing of returns this year for those filing with EIC and/or ACTC.) Also, in researching the letter yesterday, I did come across an article that said thousands of these same letters were sent by mistake to filers last year (for the 2015 tax year). So it does/can happen I guess. Everything I have located online so far says that if you can order your RETURN transcript, your return has been processed and the refund is just waiting to be released.

    Code 570 is “Additional Account Action Pending” and can be for “Additional Liability Pending/or Credit Hold” – Considering this year the IRS is holding credits due to filers (i.e., refunds) for EIC and ACTC, I would think that Code 570 is probably going to be listed on most, if not every, ACCOUNT Transcript of those who claimed those credits because there is still a pending Credit Hold until 15-27 February. when they release those refunds.

    We will just have to wait and see I guess!

    Just an FYI for others….

    Code 576 is “Refund Held for Review”

    Code 595 is ” Tax return referred for review – Referred to Examination”

    Just because you can order transcripts does not mean your refund was approved, As i know from experience, keep your hopes high, but there could still be a hold code on your transcript which is 570. They usually dont send those letters out by mistake

    GOOD NEWS for PEOPLE WHO RECEIVED the IRS 4464c letter:

    I also received this letter. Dated 2/1/17, however, since I have a PO Box I did not pick it up until yesterday (2/9/17).

    I called the IRS as soon as I got it and got a REALLY helpful representative, who, even though I was not at the 21 days, researched my return. He told me there were no holds, it was not frozen, nor was it marked for a manuel review. I was somewhat relieved, but still a little bothered that I would receive a letter saying my return was under review and that I may, or may not, receive a refund within 60 days. But at least it was something and I was more at ease then before I made the call.

    Fast forward to today (2/10/17) – I thought that I would just check my transcripts to see if they were, by some miracle, available to order/view online and….. THEY WERE! I can now view all of the transcripts for 2016 (Return transcript included)!!! So, my return has been processed and approved, just waiting until the 15th for the release date (or ddd) to be posted to WMR (I had a minimal credit for EIC).

    My thoughts are this, that since the IRS is holding EIC and Addntl CTC credit returns until 15 February, they are going to be missing a lot of the 21 day deadlines and so that things are on the “up-and-up” so to say, they sent out these letters so that people wouldn’t start calling or complaining about not receiving their refund within 21 days. What they probably should have done instead is send a letter with the PATH information and not a letter stating the return is being Reviewed and it could be up to 60 days before you see your refund. It also appears that they updated some people via WMR by taking away their bars and putting the PATH message up. My WMR currently still shows 1 Bar with the basic, normal, message I get every year about If you filed a complete and accurate return refund will be issued within 21 days, etc. My WMR page never updated with the PATH information but I received this letter. Maybe filers that were updated on WMR with the PATH message did not get 4464C Letters and those who did not get updated received them? I am not sure. Either way…DO NOT PANIC, keep checking to see if you can order transcripts. Once you can order all four, you are processed and just waiting for them to do the big release between 15 and 27 February! Hope this helps!

    Accepted: 1/23/17

    Credits: EIC, Education and CTC

    WMR status: Showing one bar, generic (normal) message re: 21 day refund window; still can see amount, etc.

    4464C Letter: Dated 2/2/17, received 2/9/2017

    Transcripts: Was able to order/view online all four, including Return transcript, for the tax year 2016.

    I’ve filed with Turbo Tax since 2010. Pretty simple and I pay for the deluxe version to catch any minor errors.

    Married Filing Joint with 3 dependents
    Do not qualify for EIC or Addt’l Child Credit
    Itemized Medical, Mortgage, and Vehicle >$1k

    Return Accepted on 1/25/17
    WMR 1 bar and Topic 152 on 1/25/17
    State Return received 2/1/17
    Letter from IRS dated 2/3/17-received on 2/7/17

    Details:
    We always file early. 2 changes to this year’s return: we had a baby, thus, added a dependent and we bought a new home. This year, we received letter 4464c. Our return was “selected for a thorough review’ for one or more reason. Wage & Income, credits, etc. No action is required. If we haven’t received our return within 60 days of letter to call back.

    As of 2/9/17, WMR has the same status-‘we have received your return and are processing it”. Still have one bar and topic 152 but no updates.

    Ive been researching this letter since I got it in the mail. First day, I could only find articles on people from past years. Today, it looks like they are rolling out letters. One thing I find in common is the acceptance date. Most people were accepted on 1/23, 1/25, or 1/27…not fool proof but just one similarity.

    It is hard to tell why and how long refunds will take to be issued. There are many unfixed variables (i.e. tax credits, dependents, allowances claimed, income bracket, filing status, etc.) Though the letters do state some of the reasons why we qualified for review, more insight would be great..
    I’m all for our government protecting us against fraud. But I find it curious, that in order to issue your state refund, they have to (first) receive your w-2 from your employer and cross reference. As I said earlier, we already received our state…

    Anybody with experience please feel free to enlighten me with your knowledge. I’ve already educated myself with the IRS website and the Tax Advocacy Group. Seems to be very limited public information. Have to keep in mind when reading other’s posts, their circumstance is likely nothing like mine. Waiting for taxes each year, seems to put everyone on pins and needles.

    Happiness is a choice, not a destination.I feel for everyone receiving a notice. I will keep you all posted, please do the same. Good luck!

    I received the letter as well! Has anyone heard of someone receiving the letter and receiving their refund ealier than the 60 days. Is this just part of them holding the refunds until late February and advising you with the letter?

    @bill. Still have bars and my refund amount on WMR. The tax return is the same as every year. No special credits, same dependents…practically the same refund amount.

    Yes it can. It’ll show that status until the review is complete. I would call after 21 days to see what’s going on.
