    After being gone for nearly two months, my bars came back on 3/18. But only to “return received”. Wording changed from “Your tax return is still being processed. a refund date will be provided…” to ” We have received your tax return and it is being processed” on 3/9.

    Haven’t found much on this happening to anyone else. Any ideas???

    Filed 2/1
    Accepted 2/1
    Received 5071c 2/18
    Id verified that same day onine it said 6-9 more weeks
    Called 2/25 to verify my ID verification went through
    It didn’t
    The Lady fixed it but informed me that it would take
    9 weeks.
    I asked her if that was just what they told people, however she said it would 100% take that long because I was pulled out of the pool and I had to be re-inserted.

    So 1 we are simple 1040ez no issues w/ Healthcare and no dependents or deductions. But since their system is all effed up I now have to wait til May to get my return. I can’t wait until the IRS is abolished. Extortionist criminals!!!!!!

    CALL!!! If you can order your transcripts and still do not have an update CALL!!! I have been able to order my transcripts since friday 2/25. After not having a DDD I called (my 21 days are up tomorrow 3/2) I spoke with an agent who stated that there was an error with a portion of my return and that they corrected it. They are sending me a letter i should receive no later than 03/14. They stated there is nothing for me to do. The system has placed a 7 day hold onto my account and it will be processed once that 7 day period is up. They projected that i will have a DDD by 03/9

    Woke up this morning to check and FINALLY got DDD of 3/2!! First year I’ve ever gotten held up this long, I got my state back this week which never ever comes in before my federal.

    I’m still waiting myself. Called an irs agent on Friday of this week. She said there was no other holds on my refund, just processing and that I need to wait 6 more weeks for more processing. If I don’t hear anything at the beginning of April, she said to call back.

    Well I was finally able to order my transcripts yesterday and was hoping to see a DDD this morning. I guess I am one of the unlucky few who still do not have a DDD. Let hope something changes by Wednesday when my 21 days are up…. I will continue to keep everyone posted.

    Accepted 1/27
    Bars missing 2/13
    Called IRS (21st day) 2/17 – Had unpostable and needed to verify id
    Verified id with rep 2/17
    Able to order return transcripts 2/19
    Got letter 5071C dated Feb. 18 in the mail 2/22 — verified online (2nd time verifying)
    Called IRS “1040” number, rep said still processing, no problems 2/22
    No update to bars on 2/24
    Called Tax Payer Advocate 2/25 (someone will be in contact by Tuesday)
    Still no update as of 2/27

    What the heck is going on? I’m assuming I’m having problems because I claimed single with no dependents this year with unemployment and retirement cash-out plus school credit (which I DID go to school and received 1098). For the past 20 years I’ve always claimed HOH with two then three dependents and NEVER had an issue. Seems like the less you get back, the harder time they give you. I had to problems getting back over $10K a year, but now I’m just under $1,200, seems like they don’t wan to let go.

    I filled through Turbo Tax on 2/1 and accepted the same day. On 2/6 I lost my bars and tt 152 but I was able to order my account transcript. 2/15 I called the IRS and was told that I needed to wait until after 21 days to call back. 2/17 I received a letter saying that my account transcript could not be sent until verified my id. 2/22 I called the IRS and was told my return was under review in order to make sure that I was the right person. He asked if I claimed any dependents, which I did, and to verify their names and DOB’s. Then he asked me to verify my refund amount and told me that everything was ok with my return and that he didn’t see any letters being sent out. I was told to keep checking wmr and that my return should be done processing in 10-14 days. 2/24 wmr changed from “your refund is still processing and a refund date will be given once available” to “we received your return and it is still being processed”, I can’t remember the exact words. 2/26 I was able to order my account return transcript. 2/27 wmr bars back showing approved with a DDD of 3/2!!!!!

    Called 2/22 spoke with IRS, no holds, no flags.. Etc asked about why taking so long and she said I should have my DD by next week. She also informed me that WMR has not been updating accurately this year and many ppl are receiving DD without any updates at all. I also asked about an advocate but she said for me it wasn’t necessary.

    Filed and accepted on 1/28/16.
    Bars went missing to generic “still processing” message on 2/13/16.
    Ordered both transcripts on 2/19/16.
    Still no DDD

    Called IRS and was told my refund was on “hold” and should receive a letter within 30 days starting from Feb. 1st. I asked rep what was the reason it’s being held and she stated she couldn’t see the reason why but that the letter would provide further instructions.
    I decided to call the verify ID line just in case that was the problem and the woman said she saw no problem with my return and that I didn’t need to be verified since my return had already been processed! From the pattern I’ve been seeing, it looks like it’s a 2 week wait between being able to order transcripts and/or bars disappearing until receiving a DDD. What I do know for sure is that the IRS is extremely backed up and the reps say whatever it is that comes to mind in order to get you off the phone. It’s been 28 days since I’ve filed and no one can identify what the problem is other than that it’s being “held”. Hopefully, I am part of Saturday’s big update. Good luck guys.

    @angie

    Thank you for that advice. I looked again this morning, still no update and I still cannot order either transcript for this year. I called and spoke with a very nice polite agent. I informed her that my “Tax preparer informed me I had to call in for an ID Verification” She spent a good 15-20 mins reviewing my account and informed me that there was no verification that needed to be done and that all of my information was in normal processing and appeared to be in order. She also informed me that when the bars disappear, it means that your return is currently being processed. All returns are different and can take a little more time than others to go through the process. I was then informed that i should see an update in the very near future, however i should call back if i do not see any update by the 21st day. For me that would be March 2nd. This help put me at ease a little. I just have to learn to be a little more patient.

    #4143639

    Losing my mind

    Filed 1/22
    Accepted 1/22
    Order account transcripts 2/5
    Return transcripts 2/22
    What feels like 85 calls to the IRS. I have been told 1. No problems, we need two additional weeks to process. 2. No letters, no need to do anything or ID verify (did it anyway, no need) 3. There is an error, we fixed it, money will be released in a week (I knew of a possible error, but couldn’t figure it out) 4. We fixed the error, we will send you a letter MARCH 9, and if you don’t respond questioning the error, we will release your funds MARCH 14!!! 5. Well yes, your money was to be released already, but anything can happen while processing, and it will be released MARCH 14!!! ( so wait….if anything can happen, what happens when that date comes and goes??? You hold it AGAIN????) I got attitude from Mrs. Lee at the IRS, and basically told, I don’t work there, so I will never understand it.

    Called the tax advocate, told that I don’t qualify, because I’m not homeless…yet! Call back when I’m homeless. BEYOND FRUSTRATED!!!! I should not have to be in dire straights to get MY MONEY back. No EIC, no offsets and no education credits. Same health insurance I’ve had for 10 years.

    Does ANYONE have any ideas or advice???

    Filled 1/19 got acceptec 1/21 lost my bars and got the reference code 9001 (to verify) I verified on 2/1 got my bars back on 2/13 with a dd of 2/18 on 2/18 no money on 2/19 wmr showed my money was sent 2/20 lost my bars again and got the reference code1121 waited until monday 2/22 and they tild me my refund was pulled back for review and it could take up to 60days. So now im just waiting! Have anyone had this problem and gotten their money back if so how long did it take?

    #4143460

    Question

    @angie what if they tell you there was a processing error? That’s what the rep told me and that it would be 6-8 weeks. That was on 2/13. As of today still no bars. I’m in hold with the Tax Advocate now. Do you think I’ll see movement Friday? No letters have came yet.

    #4143455

    Angie

    Ok guys I am a tax preparer. Here is the deal. The bars can disappear for several reasons. One reason is that you are being manually reviewed, there is always going to be something additional needed. It can be because you used a temp IP pin, need to ID verify, or need additional info such as health info or something else. Notices are being sent out, but not until towards the end of the 21 days or after. If you bars disappear….CALL IN!!! Tell them a white lie like your preparer told you that you needed to ID verify. They will be forced to take a look and verify with you. They will tell you either you have to wait 6-8 weeks or 9 weeks. That is not true. It will be approved within a few days. I have followed this site and seen all the stories. I tested with my self and THREE other clients. Everyone got approved in 2-3 days MAX. Bars back, money on the way for deposit tomorrow. Good luck guys!

    Filed on 1040EZ on 2/1 accepted 30 min later. Info on my retunr hadn’t changed in 5 years, except for the amount. No update for 21 days on WMR just stayed on the first bar. Yesterday my bar disappeared, I called and spoke with a clueless lady that didn’t seem like she wanted to help anyone. She said “someone was trying to steal my identity” I called BS since I pay for LifeLock and they would have notified me. Then she hung up on me. I called LifeLock and they said no such this had happened. I called back and spoke with a guy, he confirmed that the lady I spoke with didn’t know what she was talking about. He said I needed to verify my ID that I was “randomly selected”. He said after I verified, that I should call to make sure it worked. I called the number it said due to high call volumes, they weren’t taking calls. Then I went to the website and verified. It said I passed and it would take 6-9 weeks more. I then called after and was told that it still showed I needed to verify ID?????? Today I received a letter post dated 2/18. I’m wondering why they didn’t tell me I was mailed a letter? Also why it would take an additional 6-9 week (double and triple) the usual time to process?

    Hello All,

    This is my first reply, however, I’ve been watching and reading since the very start of the tax season. This site is a god-send that has helped many people. I filed through turbo tax on 1/27/16 and was accepted by IRS the very same day. I remained at one bar until my 19th day which is when I lost my bar, but had the processing message with “a date will be provided to you when available” with tt152. I called the IRS on 2/17 (my 21st day) and the gentleman told me there was an unpostable on my account and I had to verify my identity. Called that number and was blessed to get through on my second try but got a nasty woman as a representative. Towards the end of the call, we got snippy back and forth because she said my school didnt send the 1098T form (which I received so Im quite sure IRS has it too). Anyhow, she said she was releasing my return to continue processing and to wait nine weeks to either get a refund or a letter in the mail. Yesterday, I received a letter 5071C dated Feb. 18th in the mailed, couldnt get through because I’d hold for maybe 30 to 40 minutes then the line would hang up (I think they were tired) so I verified online. Called ID Verify this morning and was told the first time I verified indeed released return to continue processing and I should wait 9 weeks to finish. I wasn’t able to order tax return transcripts until yesterday so maybe that’s a good sign that I’m almost to the end. This is crazy!! All the previous years when my refund was over $10K, they sent it like nothing….. but now the refund is only a little over $1K, they giving me hell…. WTF???

    On the other hand, my step-father had to do the same thing (idVerify). He verified his on the same day 2/17 (I dialed the number 20 times to get through for him). He had a wonderful representative help him. I check his WMR yesterday and he has a DD for 2/24. Wow!!! I’m wondering if the representative that verified my ID but some notes on my account to make them hold mine back. I never had any issues with the IRS, perhaps because my filing status went from HOH to SINGLE with only income from unemployment and Retirement as every year before I had three dependents and W-2’s (or at least a Schedule C for 3 out of 20 years).

    I’ve prepared returns for over 10 of my family members and friends and NOT one single person had a problem, besides me (I didn’t prepares my step-father’s return). Well will keep you guys updated.

    Ok so heres a quick update:
    Still no bars or update since my bars disappeared on 02/19. I decided to call the Tax Advocate today and lightly stretched the truth. Spoke with a really nice lady who looked into my file. She stated that it is still in the normal processing. There are no holds, letters or balance owed. She stated everything from what she can see appears to be in order and instructed that i call back in a week.

    So I guess on the bright side everything is moving forward. Also I still cannot order my transcripts (account or return) Filed 2/10 Accepted 2/10 bars disappeared 02/19. Good luck everyone

    @D nutz,

    I agree with you that the IRS is behind according to the processing time as well as refund circle. Moreover, in January, CNBC interviewed IRS Commissioner , Mr. Koskinen, and he indicated that, “The fast tax return technically is over” they take their time to make sure everything looks right before they’re approved one. I hope everyone has a great impatient, and best of luck to all. In case you’re really need the money from the tax refund, you can contact the tax advocate at 1-877-777-4778. They may expedite your process.
    Warm regards,
    Ken

    Ours went missing during the first week of Feb. No tax topic either. I finally got through to someone on Friday and was told that we owed from 2014 (I knew this). That is what made the bars and tax topic go missing. I was given a DDD of 2/24 and as of Saturday, we have bars, a tax topic, and a DDD on WMR.

    Our taxes were accepted on 2/2.

    @kenneth, I am in the same boat. I filed on 2/10 and was accepted about an hour later. It was in the evening, around 9pm when it was accepted. I had 1 bar from 2/12 till 2/19. After i looked yesterday, i called yesterday afternoon and spoke with a nice lady who said there was nothing that she could see that was holding up my account. She stated that there is no rhyme or reason as to why the bars disappear and she said she had the same thing happen to her this year. Other than that she said there is nothing else they can do until march 2nd. She made it seem like i would see changes within the next few days, i did not see anything this morning, heres hoping that we get some progress soon. It seems like alot of people who filed on the same day and after us have already got their DDD.

    From what i figured by reading all of the posts on this thread, it seems like most people see a change/DDD 5 days or so after their bars disappear. Heres to hoping we see that same change. Good luck, i will keep everyone posted.

    Filed 2-10, accepted 2-10, missing bar since 2-17, and not being able to order return transcript. Anyone filed same day please let me know. I know this is the most longest tax season that I have been experienced. I never had to wait this long for the last 7 years. Good luck to everyone.

    Filed the 13th accepted 13th started a forum for people who filed the 13th…….. many of those who filed the same day and after started getting a direct deposit dates so I called the IRS ask for transcript….. they told me that the system for some reason could not process the return….. it had to be manually processed….. so it is going to the specialized processing unit….they told me I need to do nothing….. I do not owe any money there is no auditing thats going on and there’s no captures out there……

    checked WMR this morning …..no status bar…..

    It reads this
    Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.

    The good thing about this situation is I know the are working on it…..

    Last tax season my return went to specialized processing because I had to Id….

    It was in specialized processing for a week then the following week I got a direct deposit date……

    hopefully this situation will follow the same trend and I won’t have to wait that long

    Could it be???

    I filed 1/25 and was accepted same day within an hour
    I had one bar until 1/27 when it disappeared along with my refund amount
    and tax topic 152 appeared.

    it stayed that same way until last saturday or the day before, I can’t remember.
    the amount returned and tt 152 disappeared.

    throughout this whole process I have not been able to order either transcripts, although I can use my old address to order past years transcripts.

    when I called the customer service line they 2/17 told me that there was a small error in my account which was corrected and there were no letters sent out and nothing to do on my part.

    She said that I should expect it within the next week or two

    Hopefully she is correct and I today am starting to believe it!

    Finally able to order return transcript today 2/20!

    I have been waiting since January to get some info on my refund, and I have had to do a identify verify, and they also told me that there was a processing error on my return on their end, so I would be sent back through processing and would have to wait 6 to 8 weeks either for my refund or a letter in the mail. Basically what many others are going through, but I noticed a slight difference on ” Where is my Refund”

    My tax return status changed from “your tax return is still being process” to we have received your tax return and it is being processed” what does this mean? Or does it mean anything at all?

    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.

    Here is my situation;
    Filed 1/26
    Bars & tt152 dissapeared 2/14
    Found out by calling tax advocate I needed to ID verify 2/16
    ID Verified 2/16
    Still no bars or update so I called the Tax advocate back today 2/18
    Explained my hardships and that I need my return I have so many things I am behind on, was assigned a case worker and # and will get a call 2/23
    My question is did you explain your hardships and was it the Tax Advocate that got them to expedite your return so quickly?

    Update,

    STATS :
    1/20 taxes filed
    1/22 taxes accepted by IRS
    1/29 bars and tax topic dissapeared
    2/4 found out i had to verify identity which i did this same day
    2//5 called tax advocates
    2/9 heard bback from tax advocates
    2//10 was able to order return transcript
    2/12 WMR changed bars back approved with a DDD of 2/18
    2/18 DD hit b of a account at midnight PST

    I wish everyone luck in getting their returns, this has been a long road and could have been longer if i hadnt called 3 days in a row telling little white lies until someone looked into our account. if your bars are gone as well a TT 152 i would highly suggest that you do what you have to for as long as you have to get the answers you deserve about YOUR MONEY.

    Talk to yall next year,
    GOOD LUCK

    filed and accepted 1/25
    Bars disappeared, tt152 appeared between the 29th & 30th
    Tt152 disappeared Saturday 2/13

    Was also told the exact same thing by a rep on Saturday, that it was taking longer and that I had an error that was corrected and that I should see an update for a DDD around 2/24-2/25 if not sooner. No codes, no letters, no ID Verify. Can’t order transcripts online or by phone and I’ve only had one address that I’ve claimed for 20+years. I’m growing terribly fatigued of this.

    So I decided to call the IRS this morning because my 21 days have been up for a couple days now (filed and accepted 1/25)

    I had one bar until 1/27 when it disappeared along with my refund amount
    and tax topic 152 appeared.

    it stayed that same way until either yesterday or the day before, I can’t remember.
    the amount returned and tt 152 disappeared.

    throughout this whole process I have not been able to order either transcripts, although I can use my old address to order past years transcripts.

    today when I called the customer service line they told me that there was a small error in my account which was corrected and there were no letters sent out and nothing to do on my part.

    She said that I should expect it within the next week or two

    Hopefully she is telling me the truth =/ I hate waiting this long, i’ve had two years that I had to wait until june and july, last year it was only two weeks though..

    Don’t believe IRS customer service.

    I filed early 1/11
    Accepted 1/19
    Bars went missing 1/28
    Called 2/8 The customer service rep was very nice and said that there was nothing going on and I was at the end of the process. She said I would see it soon.
    2/12 I received a letter asking me to verify ID

    I could have done that a long time ago online if they would have told me. I really need to pay my car note up. I recently started a new job and I know I shouldn’t have to depend on MY tax money but if this is how its going to work I am going to start letting the government take less of my money per check. This is bogus.

    Called the IRS this morning, was told to ID verify, have been on the phone since 9am this morning trying to get through… got through at 12:26p and was told the system was down and to call back in a hour. finally got back with someone at 2:30p and as he was taking my info, the system went down again. LOL SOOO CLOSE! but no cigar!.
    guess i will try again this evening and if nothing FIRST thing in the morning! sheesh.. this is crazy.
    ( Bars on wmr have been gone since i filed and got accepted on 1/26-1/28 just the generic message and no TT either. :( 21 days on the 18th!

    I talked to a lady at the IRS this morning before I called the tax advocacy, she assured me that nothing was wrong and it is just taking a little bit longer. However I wasn’t satisfied so I researched tax advocacy and decided to give them a call anyway turns out there was a problem, I needed to ID verify I would have never known this if I hadn’t gone with my gut feeling. After verifying my ID they said it could take up to 9 weeks. If it has been more than 21 days for ANYONE I suggest you call the tax advocacy toll free number to find out if you need to verify ID the longer you wait the longer it will take the number is 18777774778
    Oh and I have NEVER had to do this in the past, that is why I am so blown away, I have always had mine within 5 days zero complications zero errors

    Ok so I just wanted to share my experience and maybe it will give someone a little bit of hope like it did me. I’m from Alabama and filed with h&r block accepted on January 25th (today being 22 days since rerun received) my bars went missing on Thursday last week and showed your return is still being processed a date will be provided when available with tax topic 152 and all my info still showing. I just called and talked to a very sweet lady I told her it’s been over 21 days and last week my bars disappeared so I needed to know what was going on. She looked at our return and said that because of so many returns that went through around that time we got resequenced and it would take around another 7 days. I asked so you’re sure nothing is wrong and I don’t have to do anything extra and she say everything looks great and there are no issues that it just got pushed back and that’s why the bars disappeared and said to check back the end of the week and over the weekend and I should see an update on where’s my refund. I made her double check everything just to be sure and she assured me that everything was fine and we’d have a direct deposit date soon. So I just wanted to share and I hope it helps others! I didn’t have to do Id check or anything else and I never have in the past it’s just their systems having so many returns being processed at once. I will check back and update over the weekend or beginning of next week to let everyone know how it goes and if we have any updates like I was told.

    Spoke to the IRS this morning took me 40 minutes to get an answer and when they did they said their systems were being slow, but still, I e filed on the 26th got confirmation that they accepted it on the 26th. Had been planning 21 days out from that which would have been the 15th or 16th. When I got someone on the phone she informed me that it had technically not been accepted by the IRS till the 28th so my 21 days won’t be up till the 18th or 19th. She said if it is not on there by those days then I can call back. Now they are saying the sytem is down again and are extending the dates even longer

    If I were you I would get in contact with a Tax Advocate this morning. You filed back on 1/19 and you can’t get any information?? No way, that is BS.

    I’d call a TA and tell them exactly what is going on and that the IRS has nothing to tell you in regards to your return. A TA can look you up and at least let you know why you are delayed and if you need to do anything.

    This year IRS is just saying sit and wait to many people. However, when people call and get a TA on the case they get progress. Even if you don’t want to use a “TA” they will be able to see if you need to ID verify or if you can do anything on your end. You could be waiting on a letter for weeks since they are so backed up.

    Then again, you could see a DDD with the next update. I wish you the best of luck. I have lost my bars and TT152, but I did not file until 1/29. I am still getting some answers if I don’t see a DDD on Wednesday.

    1/15 filed HRB
    1/19 accepted
    No bars, no TT, no info on progress since the end of Jan.

    Called on the 9th, was told it’s just being processed but did not see any errors/codes. Did not see any letters being sent. Told to wait 6-8 weeks from Feb 1st.

    Called again today (2/15) to see if any changes, was told to do ID verify this time. Went online and did it.

    Now we continue to wait…

    I filed my taxes on the 24th accepted the 25th . my bars disappeared on the 30th with no tax topic , just “still processing” haven’thad anything since ..

    I jjust called and after waiting an hour and a half she told me as long as it has no tax codes or errors I should be fine its just processing so that made me feel a little better .
    She so said if you have tax topic 152 that , that just means you have to wait an extra week to two weeks for your return. Fingers crossed hopefully Iget a ddd this week .

I have talked to the IRS and they said my return is being held and I should receive a letter within 30 days. They can’t see a letter in the system though and nothing has gone out. They tell me they are unable to see what is going on to give me more info. Has anyone else ever experienced this or have any insight? Thanks!

    I filed on the 26th of January and my 21 days is up today, my bars dissapeared yesterday.. But I do check it at least 5 times a day. I really thought I would have notice today but then realized its a National Holiday. I have always gotten my returns in 5 days and this is the longest it has ever taken, never been flagged for Identity theft either. Same job same kids so I am praying the only reason it is being delayed is because of the outage that happened earlier this month

    Filed 1/20, accepted 1/21, had 1 bar on WMR until 2/6 when it disappeared. I still have TT 152, but nothing else has changed. I can order my account transcript, but not my return. My state (CA) was approved and should hit my bank this week,but no update on federal. I did the online ID verify about a week and a half ago even though I had no codes. At the time I thought maybe it would help, but now I’m thinking maybe it just pushed me back. I haven’t the IRS yet because I don’t feel like dealing with it, but if I don’t have an update by Wednesday I definitely will.

I called verified information from my return this year and last years and they informed me it can take up to 9 weeks to finish processing but it seems that as son as the verification is done people are getting DDD a few days later

    UPDATE,

    i checked WMR not even five minutes ago bars are back now says approved and DDD of 2/18 if its not credited by the 23rd to call my bank.

    i really feel bad for all those that are still wondering about their bars and taxes.

    my story short i called IRS for 3 days telling little white lies until i got transfered to someone, once i was transfered and found out I had to do IDverifiy i did that the same day the following day I contacted Tax Advocates through the IRS page. on 2/9 she informed me the unpostable hold was removed and i could expect to see a ddd by today. I didnt hold much hope for that because i know that the IRS loves to play and sit on other peoples money and make them wait.

    please those that are going through this do what you have to, to get the information needed about your taxes so they can start moving in the direction we all want ” OUR MONEY”

    Ill update again on the 18th to let everyone know if i got it or not.

    Ok so this is what my wmr says. We have received your tax return and it is being processed. It only says that with no bars and no topic. On the left it has my info and my refund amount. I got accepted on the 29th of Jan. I called the IRS today and she was so nice and told me nothing is wrong with my returns and it hasn’t been 21 days yet so I should be fine. Has anyone received or heard of anyone receiving their refund without the bars coming back? Please help.

    Hello Everyone,
    I just want to give you a update. I call the irs in regards to my taxes because my still saying still processing a refund date will be provided when available. So I decided to call my bank to see if they had a pending deposit for me and yes they do of my refund that will be available for me on February 17th. I just want you to know to keep checking with your bank because as of 3:00pm it is still saying processing but my bank has it pending. I also did my daughter taxes on Sunday hers is saying refund received and she received her money today. I think the system is not updating like they say they want people to keep stressing about their money. I hope this helps because I have patiently waiting for mine since it was accepted on January 28th and it look like they making me wait the entire 21days unless it releases tomorrow but it is a reliever to know that it is pending to deposit in my bank. I hope this information help everyone.

Spoke with HR Block in regard to their Estimate Date being in conflict with WMR and was told that I should expect my return either on 2/16 (as reported by them) or sooner…so now I’m waiting.

    I hope my information help the next person.

    IRS accepted my return on 1/14
    IRS processed my return 1/20
    WMR bars went missing 1/30
    No offeset
    No DDD (going to Netspend Acct)
    No Topic message

    I called 800-829-1040 no help had to wait until my 21days, which was on 2/9. I called 800-829-0922 on 2/8 spoke with a nice gentleman who told me I had a Identity Theft alert on my acct. He transferred me to a different department and provided me with code 1849. I spoke to the next gentleman he asked 6 ?’s to verify me. Then said now your return back in processing status.

    I called 800-829-0922 got this omg nice man who broke my information completely down. Well come to find out the Identity Theft alert was do to my return for the tax year of 2012, 2013 and 2014 was being submitted numerous of times after being accepted. 2015 I received a paper check instead of my funds being direct deposited to Netspend. So after a 1hr call he advised to request a pin for electronic filing to prevent the additional attempts. How this is happening IDK. However, I now have to wait up till 9wks possibly before to receive my refund.

    WMR message was saying “We received your tax return and it is being processed. A refund date will be provided once available.

    WMR message now saying “We received your tax return and it is being processed.

    I am so curious how this will play out, so I’ll be checking it everyday to see actually how long this will take.

    Evening everyone!

    I’ve been watching these forum since the 30th and figured I would share my current situation.

    Filed: 1/25 (Single) w TurboTax
    Accepted: 1/25
    Bars Missing since: 1/29 – “Return is still being processed”, tax topic 152

    Naturally, I’ve been a little concerned about my refund since I started following these threads. I’ve had the same job for 5 years with the same amount due in a refund. My refund is a little more this year because I had 0 exemptions almost all of 2015. No dependents, no eductaion credits, no EIC, all IRA and healthcare forms filed with my return.

    So today, after no update to WMR I called the IRS. I know technically it hasn’t been 21 days for me until Monday, but I lied a little bit and said I filed on the 21st. From reading everyone else’s experience with this I knew they wouldn’t even LOOK at my return if I didn’t. By the way, I called 1-800-829-0582 ex 652 and was able to speak to a live person in no more than 30 seconds each time this afternoon.

    The first woman sounded a bit annoyed but ultimately looked into it for me. It was through her that I discovered that my return actually hadn’t stared being processed by the IRS until 1/29 (the same day my bars went missing). So the date in their system of my return being “accepted” is 1/29 and not 1/25 when I actually efiled. But because of this, she wouldn’t go any further because it hasn’t been 21 days since that date. I hung up and called right back because I still had some questions.

    The second guy was a complete jerk. He was beyond rude and kept speaking over me. He also decided that it was necessary to be condescending and remind me of how the WMR website works (“it only updates once every 24hrs, we can only see the same info you do, you don’t need to call unless you’re told to call, etc). I had to stop him and let him know that he’s talking to an educated individual, not a moron and that I’m FULLY AWARE of how WMR works. But that his agency’s own website tells people to call if it’s more than 21 days. I asked him was he going to look into it or not. At this point I figured even if he did look into it, he was just going to tell me some nonsense and I wouldn’t trust his answers anyway. He still refused and said he can’t look into it. I told him I knew he was lying, … and then hung up and called back.

    The third woman was super sweet and nice and she looked into my return. When she came back on the line, she said there was a note on my account of a delay in my refund of two weeks. She also saw the 1/29 date and told me that my return was recycled back through hence the 1/29 processing date and that the delay was because of this AND the recent crash. And that this was also why my bars disappeared on the same day. I told her about trying to verify my identity online and that the site wasn’t able to do so. She said that it would only work if the IRS needed it and that my return didn’t need verification. I asked her about any reviews or errors or letters or “special codes” in my notes and she said there were none of those at all. Just as a precaution, I sweetly asked her if was she super sure my return was okay. She said that she’s been doing this for nearly 15 years and that this year the IRS accepting too many returns too early before the opening date was the bigger problem over last week’s crash. But ultimately my return was perfectly okay and that if I didn’t get a DDD by 2/26 to call back and “demand some answers”. Lol!

    Obviously I can’t know for sure how much of what she said was true because of how many conflicting answers have been spat out people by other lazy unhelpful IRS agents. But something tells me this lady had a lot more expertise and knowledge about this nightmare of a season. I luckily don’t NEED my money until late April to fly back east. But I do feel terrible for those who need this money to pay for bills or to move or take care of their children or sick family members. There are a lot of hard working people out there who’ve paid their taxes and may just need a little boost. But hardship or not, it’s our money. So call them, and keep calling them to get some answers. Don’t give up and hang in there. I hope this gives some of you a glimmer of hope. I’ll make sure to update with any new details as they come.

    Update – Checked WMR daily – still nothing, so I was able to call today because more than 21 days had passed since my acceptance date. I was first told that I’d been pulled for random review, and my heart skipped a beat… Then the IRS rep said “oops, I mean, I just need you to verify a couple of details on your 2015 return for me…”

    me: “OK”

    IRS Rep: What name or names are listed on your 2015 tax return?

    me: NAME 1 (me) NAME 2 (wife)

    IRS Rep: Did you have any dependents listed? If so, how many?

    me: Yes, we had X dependents.

    IRS Rep: Can you provide me with one of their social security numbers?

    Me: Oldest Child: XXX-XXX-XXXX

    IRS Rep: and finally, your expected return amount?

    me: $X,XXX

    IRS Rep: Thank you, I’m notating that you’ve completed this process and it should allow for your return to be pushed right through. Can you please hold?

    me: yes
    **5 minutes of that awful music**

    IRS Rep: OK – all set, you should receive your refund within 6 to 8 weeks from Feb. 8th 2016.

    Me: Pulls out my concealed carry firearm (TX resident), points it at head, pulls trigger, gun misfires… so I figured I’d share this with everyone in case they’re waiting on y’all to do this too.

    Filed tt 1/25/2016
    Lost bars and refund amount 1/30/16 still had tax topic 152
    ordered tax account transcript 2/6/2016
    still not able to order return transcripts as of today

    I went to idverify.irs.org to verify my identity and after I entered my information I was given this :

    Identity Verification Service

    We are unable to verify your identity online

    For all inquiries, please visit IRS.gov or call 1-800-829-1040.
    For more information on a tax refund, please visit Where’s My Refund.
    For more information on identity theft, review the IRS Identity Protection guide.

    So I called the number and told them I received this message saying to call because I cannot verify my id online. She pulled up my account and said that I could not do it, because it was not needed for my taxes. I told her about the lost bars and she said it means nothing, that the only note on my account was that it needed 1-2 weeks additional processing. She said if there was a problem with my taxes that I would have received a 4 digit error code and not tax topic 152 and that this is a unique tax season and the irs is taking full advantage of the 21 days to process taxes.

    No Bars. No Tax Topic. Bars disappeared about a week ago.
    No ID verify required.

    Some are saying that if you have No Bars with Tax Topic 152, you’re okay.
    Others are saying that if you have No Bars with Tax Topic 152, they are being required to ID verify.

    Some are even saying if you have No Bars “without” Tax Topic 152, you’re not okay.

    I’m starting to think it all depends on each person’s own personal situation. I believe it means there is a delay regardless if it may be a mathematical error, ID verify, system error, and etc.

    Thomas

    so I called yesterday and was told I actually wasn’t accepted on the 20th, but instead I was told the 25th and of course the whole 21 day window. Well, instead, I called today to see if I got a different answer and of course.. ID VERIFY!! Went through the process, told 9 weeks, so more like mid April and that was that. And people wonder why I legitimately hate the size and scope of the US government.

    Looks like everyone’s bars came back after Friday night Feb 5 and DDD was displayed on wmr on the 6th I’m hoping this Friday will do the same and that they were gone bout a week from what I see common on these threads I saw someone wmr say your under review displayed on wmr under bars where tax topic would be so I think if your under review it would actually be displayed acct 24 no bars no topic anymore patience eroding

    So I filed my taxes through TT 1/22/16, and Sunday night/Monday morning is when my bars disappeared. Topic 152 is still displayed with a message saying if they need anything more I will be informed! My question is have anyone had this problem, called the IRS and was told they had to something more before receiving their refund? For those who experienced this and got a ddd, how many days did it take before you got a refund date? My 21 days are up on the 12th, and like everyone else I have a lot to do!

    #4136969

    Sweet P

    Q10: Does Where’s My Refund? always display my refund status with the tracker showing three steps?
    No. In some cases the tracker graphic will not be shown if your return is being reviewed prior to step two: “Refund Approved,” and instead an explanation or instructions will be provided depending on the situation. This can happen even if you previously checked Where’s My Refund? and it showed the status as “Return Received” along with the tracker. In these cases be assured that we have your tax return and we are processing it. Please follow the directions provided by Where’s My Refund? . Otherwise if we need more information we will contact you – usually by mail. If we send you a letter about your return, please follow the instructions in the letter as soon as possible.

    Hey I wanted to speak out for the first time because every year my status bars disappear. This year I moved to another state so when they went away I figured it was because of verifying my identity. However I was wrong, after calling the IRS this morning I found out that I was under review because of my income, they wanted to verify that I made as much as I say I made. Needless to say this irritated me because, I simply transfer info from my W2’s. Nevertheless I was given a timeline of 6-8 weeks for additional processing from the 5th of February, and 6-8 weeks for monies to be dispersed. The gentlemen over the phone was very helpful and forthcoming. So I begin to wait. Below I’ll leave a description of my timeline below:

    Tax Software: TurboTax
    File Date: 27th of January
    Accepted: 27th of January
    Date of Disappearance: 6th of February
    Day of Call to IRS: 10th of February
    State: GA & AL
    Bank: ACU
    Mood: Melancholy

    LOL, Hope this was helpful.

    Just wanted to tell you all what happened to us. We got the message same as everyone else about tax refund processing and our bars disappeared on Saturday. We filed on the 2nd of February. My husband called Monday and was told not to worry about anything and they wouldn’t be able to tell him anything for 21 days anyway. I told him to call back because I have never been one to take a generic answer (especially when it deals with our money). He called back yesterday and asked the girl to just check our account to make sure everything was okay. She said she would make sure no letters had been sent out. No letters had been sent out but we found out that identity still had to be verified. Now they say it will take 9 weeks but we are pretty sure it won’t. They told me it would take 9 weeks to get my name off of the offset list (for student loans) and it took like 2 weeks. Fingers crossed we all get our money soon.

    Well my bars disappeared yesterday. Still no bars this morning. Well i called the irs. I filed and was “accepted on 1/22. Accordin to tge ira it was 1/25 that it was accepted. The rep was nice until i asked why people after me recieved tgeir money. She stated you cant compare situations. And that it was “weird” i was getting back over half of my income. I have filled taxes for 10 years! For the last 5 i have gotten over half of my income back in taxes. I claim all 3 of my children as head of household! My refund is for 9xxx. So she said she couldnt guarentee my money by the 15th but at least probably a date. She said NOTHING was showing in my account as an issue… So…. I have no idea… Beyond frustrated. Im suppose to move by march 1st. No money no nothing. Section 8 needs the paperwork by tuesday the latest… So thank u irs. My family is about to be homeless…

    @Nicole120 & @Jhubbie.. Same thing happened to me. I filed on the 24th, accepted on the 24th. Found out Friday that I had to verify my identity, which I did. Woke up Tuesday with no bars and still can not order my Return transcript.

    #4136639

    Nicole120

    I don’t know if this helps anyone or if anyone has any answers for me, but here is my story if anyone has the same issue.

    I e-filed on TurboTax on 1-19-16, accepted same day. My state processed my return 1-20-16, and apparently denied it, sending me a letter in the mail a few days letter asking for “more information”, it said I could email or fax them. So, I did. They wanted copies of my w2’s and copies of my federal return paperwork from TurboTax, so they could ” verify my EIC”.

    On Sunday, I checked Where’s My Refund to check the status of my federal because I still hadn’t received it, and all the bars disappeared, and all it said was “your return is still processing, blah blah”, like everyone else. Topic 152, all my info on the left still there. I was able to finally order my transcript the next day? (I don’t know if that means anything though.. Can someone PLEASE clarify that for me? I keep reading different things.) I called the IRS the next day, and the lady reassured me that a lot of people are having this issue, and not to worry unless I haven’t heard anything for two days. Which is today. I’m getting fed up with nobody GIVING ME ANY ANSWERS AS TO WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON. I feel like, I worked for and paid these taxes, I deserve to know SOMETHING.. But anyway..

    The ONLY thing I can think of, is that I had a new baby last year. My refund is almost 3,000 more than it was last year. I claimed HOH, with two children and the EIC. Would this cause a red flag with the IRS enough to warrant a manual review? Not that I’m worried if they are; it’s all legitimate. It’s just BS because it’s taking so long. It’s ridiculous

    I posted earlier. Its a processing error that occurred last week via IRS system that put literally thousands of accounts in limbo. The scary thing is the representative, who helped me last year, told me it could delay us up to 8 weeks. I sure hope not.

    Idk if this helps anyone or not but u can got to whatever state you’re in dept of revenue site n track your refund that way too!! It tells u IF your refund has been processed vs is processing.. Found this out just messing around today BTW I’m in NC

    Mrs. Cutler

    I have been following this forum for a while. In the same boat as alot of you. My Husband filed on the 11th, accepted on the 12th (through TurboTax). Had 1 bar, until Jan. 30th. Then they disappeared with the message, Return is still being processed. A refund will be blah blah blah, and I still have TT 152.

    So he called yesterday, and spoke to a representative. She said that she doesn’t see any problems with his return and no letters scheduled to be sent out, just that he needed additional review and that he should see an update within 2 weeks.

    I hope that helps some of you guys.

    my bars and my best friend bars both went missing for 2 weeks. we didn’t have a notice or anything. the lady who does my faxes told us to call and verify our identity. once we did that we got pushed right on through. you have to tell them a rep told you to call to verify your identity. we didn’t receive a call, notice etc.. we would of just been sitting there waiting and waiting. so go ahead and call!

    I filed on 1/12 with HR Block, got text on 1/13 that e-file has been accepted. Had 1 bar from that point through the last weekend in January. My “expected date” on the HRB website was 2/3. Bars disappeared from WMR on 1/30. Started freaking out bc I had just gotten my 2014 tax refund Jan 9 2015 (a month ago) due to ID theft hold on my account. Bars were gone with topic 152, and refund amount

    Started calling around to IRS – they said everything is fine, no ID hold, can’t tell me much more than its good that I was accepted. (Not approved).

    Called HRB they said that they should get my money on the 9th/10th, take their fee out, and I have it in my account 10th/11th.

    Bars have still not come back… I doubt they ever will at this point. I just hope I don’t have to wait for a year again. It would be so nice for this to work like it’s supposed to.

    Nothing has changed since then. I’m so absolutely frustrated. We’ve never had this happen before and of course it happens on a year when we have set that money aside for something quite important. *le sigh*

    Figured out my problem i think
    “If you decide to enter someone else’s account information anyway, chances are the bank will reject the IRS’s direct-deposit request because the name on the refund (yours) doesn’t match the account holder’s. The IRS will then have to re-process the refund, cut a check, and send it by mail.”

    Just wanted to share my update, I had filed and had been accepted on 1/14, my bars went missing at the beginning of the week. As of this morning they had returned, my refund had been accepted and deposit is set for 2/10. The longest I’ve ever waited for my refund and I think its because I filed early. But I wish everyone luck, don’t give up hope, I always believe that those funds will be there when you need it the most…

    Maybe we are just the last batch for processing for DD of 02/10 and we are going to process over night tonight. Since there were sooooo many updates last night. I know ALOT of people on the post last night lost their bars right before WMR went down for updating and when it came up they had changed to a DDD! I highly doubt all of us are under review or will be delayed. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and more importantly prayers going up to see some movement tonight/early am Sunday!

    Big fat DDD today for 2/10. I’ve been accepted since 1/14, had no bars since Monday. Been pulled for “manual review” and finally saw the light after a long journey. Lol. I will never file early again. I know that. I was finally able to order my return transcript yesterday.

    Hey guys. Just wanna send some encouragement. Mine was accepted 1-19-16 then a week later bars disappeared and said date would be available soon with topic 152. I got up this morning 2-6-16 to a dd date of Wednesday 2-10-16 and my bars reappeared. Praying everyone has a similar outcome very very soon!!!

    Re

    Filed 01/18, accepted 01/19. Bars and tax topic 152 disappeared on 01/30. No movement since! This has never happened. My brother filed the same day and never lost his bars woke up to his ddd of 02/10! Beyond frustrated right now. Not to mention some say this could mean identity issues however no code or number is mentioned and I have not received a letter. Gonna call Monday because this is bull****

    I filed 1/17 accepted 1/19 for my return and the father to my kids did his own. We were both on the same first bar since 1/19, around 4 am both our bars disappeared. Around 6 am mine came back with a DDD of 2/10 and on the second bar. His is still missing and no 152 topic, it happens each year with him I don’t understand why!,

    Filed- 1/12 TT
    Accepted- 1/19

    Finally woke up to a DD 2/10…
    I called the IRS and luckily a very helpful agent explained to me they are really behind. My bars went missing last weekend and I still had TT 152.
    My boyfriend and I both filed same day he received his 2/3/15. We are both weeklys.
    The IRS agent stated to me first batch of weeklys started out with a week delay due to weather wherever they process us.
    Then the first week they started processing they weren’t able to finish that batch so the remainder of the taxpayers got resequenced. So if you know u are a weekly and have no bars but still have TT152 you should be fine just delayed..

    Hi my name is Gimme, friends call me Mula and I’m the newest member of #TeamMissingBars

    Filed/Accepted 1/24
    1 bar and 152 Tax Topic from 1/24-2/5
    Woke up this morning to missing bars and processing message.

    Spoke to a rep at the IPSU yesterday in regards to an processing issue with my transcript. Answered some verification questions which she promised wouldn’t delay my refund. Nervous because last year my bars went missing 3-4 days after filing (on 2/1 or 2/2 last year) and I didn’t see my refund until late May.

    I filed Jan. 19. I was able to order my transcripts at about 2:30 a.m., and only checked it to see if I could after my bars disappeared, and I received a message on WMR saying,”Your refund is still processing. A direct deposit date will be posted when available.” I was a little concerned. But checked a few minutes ago and wmr shows that I should receive my deposit by February 10. So I don’t know how significant the transcripts are, but it seems to be a good sign. I read in other posts that if there is an issue, a code will show on wmr, but that’s just based off what I read. I’m not sure how true it is.

    I filed with turbo tax on 1/11 and was accepted on 1/12. I had one bar until January 29th then I received the message of my taxes are still processing etc. with tax topic 152. I called IT’S and a lady informed me that they didn’t start processing returns until January 19th and she also said that if I didn’t have a 4 digit code I should be fine. After logging on everyday this morning at 5:45 am I finally have 2 bars with a DDD of February 10th. Don’t give up hope guys. Just keep checking and start calling for answers to the IR’S on February 9th.

    GOOD LUCK!

    I filed on 01/14 and was stuck on one bar until 1/31 when my bars went missing and said “return processing”. I was able to order return transcripts last night and updated to two bars giving me a dd date of by 2/10

    @kim

    My return was flagged again.. When I wasn’t seeing an update I called
    If you need to call the identity protection hotline
    They will be more likely to check and see what the issue is.. Give them vague info.. Someone at the irs said call this number and check with you.. They can at least look at the account and verify if that’s what’s needed..

    Otherwise your waiting for them to get around to mailing you a letter.. When this could be and most likely is part of the problem..

    I saw that the system was flagging more ID verifications this year, because of fraud committed these prior years..

    Last year I filed 1/29
    Found out 2/24 ID verify
    Ddd 3/22
    This was because I didn’t find out I needed to verify until the 21 days had past.. However even if I had found out.. I’m not sure if I would have gotten the refund any sooner..

    Filed the 20th accepted 22nd ordered account transcript last week sometime. Was able to order return yesterday. I do have am offset which they have taken state already still going to take full amount of offset out of federal bc I called offset line yesterday and it told me so and that it will be taken Feb 10th. So this morning two bars on wmr with dd of Feb 10. I will probably be waiting a long time to get the extra 800.00 they took though!

    It would be easy if they just gave it to us how it is. Your refund is under manual review. Your refund is fine. We dont think your you so prove it. Whatever but no we all get the same response wether were being audited refunded reviewed or fraud checked its rude. My refunds for just under $9,000 who wouldnt be super pissed

    Ash

    So we have the IRS offset it common then

    Last year they took my entire 6,000$ return. Over something my ex husband didn’t report in 2012 (I wasn’t even working that year!)

    I called before tax season opened and they said there was an additional 1,800$ tied to my name. So I figured I’d just be in the same boat, but at least get the other half of my return back.

    I have yet to call. I will try today.
    The transcript is how I found out last year they took the entire thing. So hopefully I get the transcript soon.

    We are going to have an offset from the IRS as weel, but we did last year too and it didn’t delay it. Some people are saying we are probably under review. I spent almost 45 minutes on the phone with someone at the IRS today and I would hope she would have mentioned that. She should have been able to see it, since I had my return transcript ordered by then.

    Meredith I will update here, I have these folks on Facebook too, but I haven’t posted there. It’s a mad house. I will probably try to call later, but I doubt it will do any good. I filed the 29th.

    I do know that I owe a small amount from a joint return with my ex husband from 4 years ago. I’d expect them to just take that and send the rest off. I’m not sure if that’s why I didn’t get an update. I guess we will have to wait and see what the transcripts say

    Ash, I will keep updating here. Please do the same. I saw where you had the same issue, maybe we are just processing late since the update doesn’t officially end until 6am est. The IRS WMR website still says it was last updated 01/05, so maybe. I’m holding on to the last bit of hope. If not, I’m afraid we will be waiting another full week since we are weekly.

    Update, after the idverifiy yesterday we went to H&R block called the idverifiy line back so they could talk to them nothing changed still 9 weeks. Called the tax advocate line today and am claiming hardship because my landlord is about to evict us because she doesnt want rent for the month paid two different times. by 2/10 i will have shut off notices for gas and electric, lets hope by the time they call and with all the above that they can get our refund back to us at least by the first of next month will update after i talk to the tax advocate between now and the 10th is when i should get a call. i think that its complete bull crap that after you verifiy your identity that they can make you wait for another 9 weeks, my return was flagged for identoty theft half way through the processing, we should not be made to go through the whole thing again from the very very bottom of the stack, im not standing for it and i am going to fight tooth and nail until i get our return in the bank until then i hope that everyone at all of the numbers that i have called enjoy hearing from me every single day.

    Update. I tried calling IRS. Was transferred to transcript line cause I told them I was able to order my return transcripts. Was then told that it was impossible for me to have had ordered the return transcripts for 2015. When I said that I did and I would receive them in 5-10 days he told me that I what ever I received would not be them. Don’t know what the hell the IRS is doing but I know I’m starting to get pi****

    I was finally able to order return transcript with my new address!!!!!! I filed on 1/14 but was supposedly not accepted until the 21st. Lost my bars on Monday and the irs woman told me I was under review.

    @summer I did almost exactly the same

    I filed 1/19- accepted the same day. Last Saturday 1/30, all bars and tax topic disappeared. As of today I got a nice man who gave me the identity phone number saying that was holding me up. After 1.5 hours on hold answered all of the questions then got disconnected. Start it again, 2 hours later made sure it went through then I got the woman telling me the slight delay of 9 weeks too. To which I replied why? She said I was under review they needed to match w2’s. I told her I’d furnish those today to expedite. Obviously that’s a no. However, they don’t get w2’s till June from companies. So, I’m inclined to not believe her? I’m going to figure this out at some point. But this is absurd!

That’s What I Did And Found Out That I’m Under Review And To Call The Identity Line. Currently On Hold With Them. So if you are like me and no bars since 1/29 and no tax topic 152 i would strongly suggest that you call and tell that little white lie above. ill update again when i know more

    A refund date will be provided when available.
    Please read the following information related to your tax situation:

    So I too filed early, filed and accepted on 1/14… Had one bar up until a few days ago and bars were missing but refund amount was still showing with the message that refund date would be provided when available. As of 6 am no progress, although turbo tax says 46% of people who filed the same day as I have received their $.. In the past I’ve always received my refund within 7 days but filed early for some stupid reason this year, which I won’t do again. I hope now for a deposit on the 8th…
