Mine is still saying this..but it updated today with the refund amount on the side> This happen to anyone else?
July 15, 2018 at 4:06 pm #4248637
Has anyone just gotten no updates at all? We got the 60 day letter initially and after that time called the number provided. We were told that all the information about the return had been pulled from the system as they were making the decision about weather or not to audit. No uptates have been given since then. (That was June 18)
No letters, no request to I’d verify, no change in the where’s my refund page. Just says still processing.
Any insight would be appreciated.July 14, 2018 at 5:18 pm #4248626
Zero update…… like watching paint melt on the side of a barn!July 14, 2018 at 10:57 am #4248617
I didn’t get any updates either. I wasn’t really expecting one when my transcripts have a processing date of 7/16. Hopefully next week I see some movement, a letter, anything.
I honestly believe that the reason mine is held up is because my CPA didn’t include the estimated prepayment I made early last year and so the IRS is showing that they owe me more than I claimed. So I probably will have to file an amended return.July 14, 2018 at 6:59 am #4248615
Well just checked and no updates for me this morning! Hope some of you others have more luck!July 14, 2018 at 3:09 am #4248613
I’m truly sorry for your loss hon!July 14, 2018 at 12:39 am #4248611
Sorry for the late reply my daughter in law passed away .. yes it was by mail . It said they needed to verify my information and it had a lot of forms kinda like the original return except like my son that I claim is older so I needed something showing he lived with me etc . Kinda more detailed . I’m not sure why they waited this long but the did so I guess I’m officially AUDITED lolJuly 13, 2018 at 3:05 am #4248588
Finally I got DDD of 7/18. Man oh man. Its been a long journey thanks to my adovocate. I did receive interest.July 13, 2018 at 12:12 am #4248586
I’m supposed to hear from them or have my check on or before the 19th. Fingers crossed!July 13, 2018 at 12:11 am #4248584
Well , let’s all just keep praying and hope for the best! The next wave of returns go out next week. Maybe we are all part of them!July 12, 2018 at 5:01 pm #4248572
So, I was informed that they received my paperwork and that they will be finished reviewing that by 10/26/2018. Talk about some BS!!! letter was dated July 2. I fail to see how it should take almost 4 months to check my paperwork and issue me my return. The IRS needs to be dismantled along with the federal reserve system.
I am however, going back to using my tax guy. and he is cheaper than HR.July 12, 2018 at 3:12 pm #4248569
I finally heard from my TA yesterday. He stated that all I’m waiting on was the irs to go in and make adjustments to my refund. When I asked how long does it take he stated a matter of minutes. They have been holding my amended refund since June 4 and I even filed for a hardship. I wish there was a way for us not to pay taxes. It’s insane how they are still able to collect taxes from us but we can’t get what is doing due to us from them. This is my last year using TurboTax if this is what is going to happen. Next year I’m using HR Block.July 12, 2018 at 2:24 pm #4248567
It’s positively crazy to still be here talking about a refund when it’s the middle of July. I now feel for those that had these issues last year, but I don’t think it was as many. At this point I’ll check WMR Saturday’s as I’m a weekly, but I can’t even get excited that I may see one this year. The timeframe of the letters and lack of information is horrible. I hope those that created this mess some day have to suffer what we all have had to deal with themselves to truely understand what they have done!July 12, 2018 at 2:40 am #4248564
Yea go to H&R Block! There’s is almost flawless. You get what ya pay for I guess as they cost out the ass! I’m still waiting for an update myself here. I didn’t use turbo tax I mailed mine in. But it’s very rare they hold or audit a Block return. I’ve researched this. Turbo tax and independent filers were the main target.July 11, 2018 at 10:34 pm #4248562
@Jeannine Damn….. very sorry! And yes it’s crazy that they waited this long for more information! This whole year has been beyond insanity and I’m sure another TurboTax users next year will be targeted. Hang in there, I’m rooting and praying hard for ALL of us!July 10, 2018 at 9:10 pm #4248554
Wow…..I truly wish you the best with the audit. I’m so sorry we’re all having such issues. Not sure what or why the irs is being so mean to us all this year but sure hoping they get it straight for next!July 9, 2018 at 10:02 pm #4248529
It was a letter in the mail saying I was being audited to send in documentation and had a ton of papers … it makes no sense why did they not tell me a long time ago ?? Unreal ….July 9, 2018 at 6:22 pm #4248524
@Jeannine Did they tell you to hold tight and wait or that they needed documents? Yes, crazy indeed at this time!July 9, 2018 at 5:46 pm #4248521
What sort of information is required from an audit? I’m unfamiliar?July 9, 2018 at 4:34 pm #4248518
Well I just checked my mail and got a AUDIT letter from the IRS …. unreal …July 9, 2018 at 10:03 am #4248506
@Crystal… Thanks for sharing! That lines up with what Marty B was saying is the next wave of direct deposits. Hopefully more of us will soon see the same. Enjoy getting yours!July 8, 2018 at 10:00 pm #4248492
Filed turbo tax feb 2. Went through first 60 day review and my second one is up on July 15. I’ve been reading this site every week for updates. I thought I would share to give hope to people that I checked wmr today and it finally changed from still processing to 2 bars with a deposit date between July 11 & July 16July 8, 2018 at 8:20 am #4248469
I’m STILL waiting !! I filed Jan turbo tax too .. I only called a few times there’s no point anymore .. my emergency hasn’t changed in months it’s still processing .. has been for months . Only transcripts I can seem to get is mailed they are the same as the first ones Ii got .. so yep I’m still waiting as wellJuly 7, 2018 at 8:30 am #4248445
@Marty B yeah looks like we’re down to just direct deposits only on mondays now. So that timeframe would make sense. Fingers crossed everyone left here is finished by August! And yeah…. the pasta’s still ok but a steak would be good once in awhile too!July 7, 2018 at 3:42 am #4248440
I did see where it looks like there’s another “wave” of refunds starting on or around the 16th. My CP05 letter mine should be released unless they need more info from me on or before the 19th. So maybe with a little luck all of us waiting will be included in that batch????July 7, 2018 at 3:38 am #4248438
Spooky, none my way yet buddy. Still enjoying that pasta? LolJuly 7, 2018 at 12:13 am #4248433
Sooooo, months gone bye, “phantom” letters mailed, or not. A bunch of us who filed in January. TurboTax users. The first 60 day wait. Then the next 60 Days. TA’s doing something or nothing. ID verify, then not accepted. Has Anyone seen anything positive of late?!? Only thing I can see is that the IRS website direct deposit schedule only goes until October, which I’m positive I won’t be a part of. So…. Anyone?!? Anything positive?!? Just wondering if there’s any movement or hope?!?July 5, 2018 at 5:15 pm #4248397
@Shay that is kind of weird. I faxed mine originally to my TA but then had to overnight the original because they said they could only accept originals. I got a letter that my return was adjusted according to my amendment (it decrease my return) but wmr shows not receiving an amendment from me so I dunno whats going on.July 5, 2018 at 9:51 am #4248386
So I received a call from my TA today and he said that the irs is requesting that I fax them a copy of my amended tax return. Even though the one that I mailed them is showing up in WMAR they still want a faxed copy. Is this normal has anyone else been through this. I’m just trying to figure out what is going on. Please advise if someone can shed some light.July 2, 2018 at 4:12 pm #4248297
@Angela: I filled 1/28 too. We, the early Turbo Tax users were targeted. In all, over 9.4 million were pulled for review. I got our CP05 hold letter March 12. After the 60 days were up, I called. Told they will send a letter to release the funds, but another 60 day wait. Called again, was Told I should have gotten an “phantom” ID verify letter may 24. No letter. Made appointment to verify in person June 5, took off from work, was told in person I didn’t need to do that. 😠Called again, 5 more hours on the phone, told I was going to verify over the phone as our return was targeted due to possible fraud. Passed over to the Tax Payers Protection dept. Did the ID verify over the phone, then told he was requesting the funds to be realized, But it could take 4-9 more weeks and even after 9 more weeks, I might have to grab a TA! 😡 Insanity at its finest! And no one friggin’ cares.July 2, 2018 at 3:45 pm #4248295
I filed 2-17-2018 and have been is review since 3-12-2018. No letters, no changes as of yet. I’m holding out that I will receive a check in the mail really soon. We need itJuly 2, 2018 at 12:59 pm #4248287
Angela single mom
I filed Jan 28th , accepted Feb 1. I file the sane way ,almost same income every year through turbo tax. My taxes were accepted and the day the deposit was supposed to hit , status changed to still processing. Recieved a letter 2 weeks later saying I didn’t need to do anything they were reviewing for my safety. Its July 2nd. I haven’t received any additional information, I’m drowning in bills I usually pay off with the 4000+ $ the government is holding. This is totally insaneJuly 1, 2018 at 1:00 pm #4248258
Does anyone knows when WMAR is updated? Mine was received on 6/4 and when I talked to a rep with the irs they stated that it can be until September when it is finally done processing. I have a TA helping me and I filed for a hardship. Im just curious as to when I might finally get my refund.June 29, 2018 at 4:59 pm #4248207
Call the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM – 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: “Refund”, or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for “personal income tax” instead.
Then press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.
Then press 3 “for all other questions.”
Then press 2 “for all other questions.”
– When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don’t enter anything.
– After it asks twice, you will get another menu.
Then press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
It should then transfer you to an agent.June 29, 2018 at 4:52 pm #4248205
I need an accurate phone number to speak to a actual person! I had one but broke my phone and all I can find online is automated numbers. Can someone please help?June 29, 2018 at 1:40 pm #4248199
My CP05 letter review is supposedly over by the 19th and Chris is the 2nd person I’ve seen with a date of the 16th. So I must assume the next “wave” of refunds going through are the week of the 16th. Fingers crossed mine and all of yours will be in that same wave!!! Say some prayers folks!!June 29, 2018 at 10:21 am #4248188
Edit: the post dates are 7-16-2018June 29, 2018 at 10:21 am #4248186
So after my WMR updated yesterday to reflect a new status of being processed, I checked my transcripts online today and they have all updated. I have a code 570 and a 971 and a processing date all post-dated to 7-16-22016.
Doing a little research, I found that a 570 can reflect that there is an offset between what I filed a return for and what they have? Is this true? I know that I had paid a pre-deposit in Q1 2017 that nub CPA erroneously omitted from my filed tax return, so could that be the reason behind the 570?
971 says a notice has been sent for 7-16-2018, would this be different from the LTR12C I received earlier this year in April where they required additional documentation?
My account balance is now showing a greater return than I initially had filed for, so I guess that’s cool? But does that mean I still have to wait longer or should I expect our refund around the 16 of July?June 29, 2018 at 7:29 am #4248181
@Marty I had to ID verify over the phone a month after my Verify letter was mailed ( we never got it) and the guy from Tax Payers Protection ( a year old division of the IRS) said he sent a request to release the funds. But it could take anywhere from 4-9 more weeks. Sigh Any damn excuse to sit on the money.June 29, 2018 at 5:06 am #4248176
Guess what Spooky…..mine is still being “processed”. Beyond ridiculous!June 28, 2018 at 9:05 pm #4248168
@Chris They pulled 9.4 million of us for reviews. Of course they don’t have the people to handle it so here we all sit. Ridiculous.June 28, 2018 at 8:57 pm #4248166
@spookyrides – thanks for clarifying I hope good things to come. I’ve never had this happen before!June 28, 2018 at 5:17 pm #4248164
@ Chris Still being processed is first so yours is moving along now. Best of luck, I’m still looking at 3-9 weeks and we filed in January. Insanity at its finest!June 28, 2018 at 10:34 am #4248151
My status on WMR changed from still being processed to we have received your refund and it is being processed. Which line comes first in the timeline of processing? I feel like with this status I’ve fallen back a step? Can anyone clarify?June 27, 2018 at 1:22 pm #4248081
@ray…. doubt a TA will help as you need to show proof of either getting the power turned off or eviction for them to take your case, and it’s a complete crap shoot if they even work hard at helping you. For what it’s worth, we have been waiting since January 28th. There using more filters as per Trump, but don’t have enough sets of hands to handle all the returns that have been flagged. Hang in there man, our second 60 day is July 24. Can’t wait to see how they delay us yet again. Complete and total dumpster fire.June 27, 2018 at 2:34 am #4248133
F/A March 22 2018 bars disappeared 1 week later.
Recieved ID verif. April 11th 2018 and passed my verification the same day.
Recieved Cp05 notice May 16th 2018 stating not to do anything but wait till June 28th 2018
As of today I haven’t received anything asking for more information . WMR still says ” your refund is still being processed and so on”.
Anyone else on here about to hit there Cp05 letter wait date and still haven’t heard anything. I was hoping by now something would have been sent out or changed on WMR but it seems like a lot of people are still waiting after the identity verification. I filed using Turbo tax and they keep emailing me wanting the filing fees.
Never in my life have I waited this long. Even back when I use to file a paper return and get the check. I hope they get things going sometime this year at least. Good luck to everyone I will update if anything changes.June 25, 2018 at 3:34 pm #4248117
Just called and was approved for an advocate, waiting on a call that is scheduled for June 28th. I figure, if I have to wait another 3 months anyway, getting one cant hurt.June 25, 2018 at 1:57 pm #4248109
Just sent in all the information they needed for my audit and called and was told that they have all the information, but they are just now looking at the audits from February and March, so I can expect to have mine review somewhere around another 3-4 months…WTH!!!!!June 24, 2018 at 11:18 pm #4248107
Treasury.Gov read up on this years returns, insane.June 24, 2018 at 11:16 pm #4248105
9.4 Million returns held, and a processing center meant to close, so they have moved returns to another center for review. Unreal stuff….. do the google search and see why everyone is still waiting. Yet they pat themselves on the back for detecting 48% of fraudulent returns. UnrealJune 23, 2018 at 11:38 pm #4248101
@ray…. you can only qualify for a TA if you have a disconnect letter from a power company or lost a car, apartment etc. And even then…. your results may vary as the majority on here have stated that they are about as useful as a box of rocks. Five months myself and still waiting. Hang in there man, misery loves company and god knows that this has been an unreal tax season!
