I noticed a lot of people’s bars went missing with a topic 152 . I was wondering how many people had their refund amount disappear to?

Hi, this IS just to help some people who had the disappering bars. I filed on 3/17/2015 was accepted the same day. The next day i checked wmr showed one bar, 4 days later the bar disappered. After 4 weeks I called the IRS and was told my return was on hold because i needed to verify my identity. Once i done that i was told it would take about 6 weeks.
Good news IS after 2 weeks checked wmr AND the message had changed to ( WE have received your tax return AND it IS being processed ) I then checked my transcripts finally my return transcript was available i got my account transcript on line and finally it showed a cycle code and a great 846 code ( refund issuded ). Checked wmr the next morning finally had the bars back with refund approved and a ddd of 4/28. My bank is already showing the pending deposit and will be available on 4/28/2015.
So if anyone else is going with missing bars it doesnt mean your being audited or at least for me it didnt just a simple id verification. So there IS hope folks.March 10, 2015 at 5:06 pm #4110004
Hi all, I am new here, my husband sent in his tax return on 02/02/15 they recieved it in Texas 02/03/15 ( had to send to texas cause of ITIN aplication process ), 03/02/15 we checked WMR and there was one bar saying they received it, then since 03/06/2015 all bars are missing, amount is missing, but tax topic 152 remains, I was finally able to get into transcripts and this is what it says

I noticed today mine has still no bars but says processing and the topic 152 stating the way I want my refund. but the amount is gone. I think that just means that the site is having issues yet again . mine were accepted jan 24, and two weeks ago sent a fax on that obamcare. So I am thinking they are finally working on mineFebruary 28, 2015 at 11:24 pm #4109331
Turbo Tax says my taxes were accepted: 01/22
Accepted according to IRS: 01/26
Lost Bars: 01/31
Could not (and still can’t) view transcripts.
Called IRS: 02/18
I was advised that my file had been flagged for ID theft. I was told to call back in 2-3 weeks.
Called IRS: 02/24
I spoke to a woman named Maria who was a totally failure. She said the flag was still “pending” for ID theft. She also said that I needed to “allow for mailing time” despite this being a direct deposit. When I asked why I needed to allow for mailing time, she said “How should I know what method you used?” I was shocked. She ended up hanging up on me when I asked for a tax advocate.
As of this morning, 02/28, the bars are back! I have a DD of 03/04.
I hope this helps others.February 28, 2015 at 12:28 pm #4109285
Does anyone know where you can go too obtain your address etc to receive a transcript? In keep getting the “Computer doesn’t reconize your info.I guess I need to reset..IRS will lock you out for 24 hrs if you don’t input the correct address etc.
my bars dissapeared earlier and was left with a generic message refund still processing expect to receive in 21 days, checked a hr later and got this message….
We cannot provide any information about your refund. You must wait at least 24 hours after you get the acknowledgement e-mail that your tax return was received by the IRS

@rahman madison If it does not recognize your current address, they have not updated it in their system yet. You can do a change of address online I believe, or call.February 28, 2015 at 9:11 am #4109264

WMR bars diappeared 2/24 with still processing message
Refund amount still showing
Tax topic 152 still showing
Transcripts still blank
…I will post an update if anything changes!February 21, 2015 at 11:07 am #4108438
WMR Shows One Bar: 2/5
Indiana Refund Deposited: 2/19
WMR Lost Bars: 2/20
Transcripts Available: 2/21 Shows an 846 Deposit Date of 3-16 which would actually be 2/23 if I read everything right.
If this follows the common trend WMR will update tomorrow although in previous years it did not do so until I had my deposit.February 21, 2015 at 10:21 am #4108434
i filled on 1/8/15 accepted on 1/12/15 on Jan 31 lost bars refund amount and everything , on feb 10 /15 was my 21 day i called and they said to me i have to wait for 8-6 weeks then i called again past tuesday and they said i have to call id theft i called wednesday answer all questions and stuff , i was loosing all my hope , today i check wheres my refund and my return was approved with dd for next week , this is a relieve but i will not rise victory until see the amount on my bank account ,this been a complete nightmare next year i will wait untill season beging and no early filling , i wish you the best for all of you guys this been horrible..February 21, 2015 at 10:10 am #4108431
I filed 1/29 accepted same day.. bars went missing 2/14 along with tax topic 152.. says still being processed and refund date will be provided….. my transcripts say n/a on 3 and 2014 wages says no return filed…February 21, 2015 at 9:40 am #4108423
Filed 1/20, had one bar and 152 code till 2/7 and bars disappeared and 152 and refund amt stayed. I called on 2/10 and was told allow 2 weeks. My WMR updated this morning and dd is 2/23/15.
By the way I was never able to see transcripts online “could not verify my identity at this time”, but I did order by mail on 2/5/14 and received on 2/17/15 and said n/a on all with a AS OF date of 2/23/2015 which just happens to be my deposit date I received this a.m.
I had Obamacare all year and did not owe on that but I did owe a state tax offset which is less than my refund so that will be coming out.
Good LuckFebruary 21, 2015 at 5:05 am #4108401
So like most of us, I panicked when my bars disappeared. Here is my timeline.
Bar disappeared: 2/18
Able to view transcripts: 2/20
Refund approved: 2/21
Each case is different. But I just wanted to give people a timeline of how things worked out for me.February 20, 2015 at 1:22 pm #4108267
Filed/accepted 1-23. Bars missing for awhile now. called on day 21 was told to wait for day 22 (actually day 25 with holiday weekend) called day 26 and was told to wait for letter arriving within 2 weeks, do what it says, no further info available.
Still no bars, but shows refund amount (so thats not under resolution) and tax topic 152 (so nothing flagged) Checked today to see if I got proper 1095-a, no problem there. Not likely ID Verify or they would have told me. So it’s something that doesnt affect the 1040 numbers, likely a collateral form with no bearing on actual refund.
Checked over my supporting forms and 1040.com doubled my gross income whe nit generated the business write-off form. I didnt scour all the generated stuff because it didnt affect my scratch pad numbers or bottom line)
As luck would have it I didn’t do a single write-off this year except the forced deduction for half self-employment tax – no business expenses, no use of home for business, etc. (bigger AGI makes for bigger FHA home loan)
My guess is I’ll need to correct that mistakenly generated number, dot the I’s and cross the T’s.
I guess the moral of the story is that bars can disappear for any number of reasons and as long as the tax topic stays 152 and the refund amount shows and hasn’t changed, it’s most likely just an exercise in patience and jumping through the hoops. Plenty of people had had the magical transcripts update to be followed by WMR updating by doing nothing while an issue was resolved internally – some not so fortunate, and some like me, oh well. I counted my chickens before they hatched like an idiot and will never do that again!February 20, 2015 at 1:00 pm #4108264
I have now joined the no bars club. Filed 2/4. Had one bar as of 2/6. Stayed there until today 2/20. Now bars and refund amount are missing and I have the still processing with topic 152. N/A on three of four transcripts with the forth showing no return. Wonderful. Have to love our inept executive branch. It has gotten worse every year for the last several.February 20, 2015 at 7:48 am #4108177
File on 1/29 accept that day and bars disappear on 2/14. I can see my account transcript but is blank except for the top where there is a date which today change from 2/23 to now 3/9 does that mean that is when I will receive my refund.February 19, 2015 at 3:01 pm #4108079
Hello 2 all I hope I can help ease some frustration I to was in the same boat, filed 1/28 accepted 1/30 had 1 bar on wmr showing accepted with 152 code. about 3weeks later checked wmr and showed no bar refund amount of refund disappeared with no 152 code and showed your tax return is still processing, a refund date will update when available. I checked my trans as well and was also showing, n/a for one available but said no return. I checked again yesterday and my transcripts were updated with codes as well as a cycle code. Received an update on wmr today with a ddd of 2/24. Please just be patient as long as it shows still processing you should be fine once your tans become available you will have more info as to whats going on. Alson any questions about codes or cycle codes check here. http://auditdetective.com/Transaction_Code_Definitions…/ and for cycle codes http://blog.tavorro.com/2014-irs-refund-cycle-code-chart/February 19, 2015 at 1:53 pm #4108064
I filed on 1/29 and bars were gone on 2/14. The tax 152 message is gone. It shows refund is being processed will provide refund date when available. Has anyone else lost the tax 152 message?February 19, 2015 at 1:07 pm #4108056
We got our deposit yesterday! Much faster than last year. We filed and were accepted on 2/1, got our money 2/18 (even though WMR had a DD of 2/19). Good luck to everyone who is still waiting. See you all next year!February 19, 2015 at 12:48 pm #4108050
Finally got deposit today. Here is my story:
Accepted an hour later after filing
Bars disappeared on 2/3
Was able to order a blank account transcript on 2/9
Was able to order a tax transcript 2/13
System updated and bars returned with a DD date on 2/14
Dd date was 2/19 recieved on that day at 2:30am
Good luck to everyone still waiting. I’m still waiting for my state which seems to be taking its sweet time too.February 17, 2015 at 11:36 am #4107507
I efiled with turbotax on January 30th accepted January 31st. I had the bar saying accepted until yesterday. Today the bars disappeared as well–this is making me nervous. I had to do the form for marketplace insurance–I wonder if many of us getting this had that and it is holding things up or something–would love to know if anyone with missing bars gets a direct deposit!February 14, 2015 at 11:40 am #4107053
Clues that might make sense: If the message “you should receive your refund within 21 days of acceptance” disappears, then you may not get it by day 21. You may have just been resequenced or ‘put back a cycle’ is possible.
If the refund amount disappears, you may not get that amount, and sure you might be under review.
If only tax topic 152 appears rather than some code that shows someone had jerked your file, then you probably don’t have anything to worry about, yet.
If you can only see N/A for the top 2 transcripts for 2014, it’s not processed yet and may or may not be under review.
You can wait x amount of time to get a letter, or on day 22 you can call them and talk to a real person (800) 829-0582 Ext. 652 and they may or may not tell you anything useful.
Many people are reporting that they can finally see transcripts and the next day or so bars return, so we can deduce that transcripts update before WMR. These people may have been re-cycled or may have been under a simple review.
You have “The Right to Quality Service” and the right to talk to a supervisor, but they have 21 full days to do as they please for the most part.
Every state has at least one Taxpayer Advocate. If any action other than limbo has occurred, or 21 days have passed and you still know nothing, you can find out if you qualify 1-877-777-4778
If you are not aware of the thread Bart’s Thoughts, it is a must read and he will answer any question briefly and conciselyFebruary 14, 2015 at 11:01 am #4107043
I had a slice of orange today with my oatmeal, I couldn’t find my car keys and was late for work. It happened to someone else too and they made a youtube video about it and the oatmeal company said so in their faq. So anyone who had oatmeal and oranges this morning will lose their car keys.
We know the FAQ is not correct based on empirical evidence presented here by people who have no reason to lie. Missing bars MAY mean you are under review, it also may NOT mean that. The very next section of the faq “can I determine a refund date by reading transcripts” emphatically states that you can NOT, when indeed you can, and they ramble on about codes rather than cycle – because the person who wrote that section of the IRS FAQ has NO CLUE!
A closer look a the preceding “missing bars” in faq reveals the answer is vague and leaves a lot to be desired when taken with all we have read here.
When in doubt ask BartD.
Urban myths suck, so does oatmeal and oranges.
Good luck all!February 14, 2015 at 8:43 am #4107006
My bars dissapeared last year and it meant I was under review. My bars just dissapeared again this morning. I’m assuming its the same as last year. I file AOTC (1098t) for both my son and I. We moved etc etc… Here is a link to informative video regarding missing bars. http://youtu.be/5nuQOmLB3lwFebruary 14, 2015 at 8:42 am #4107005
Well on 2/13 I was able to view transcripts…showed 846 Refund Amount was correct. Today my Bars came back and refund approved DD date of no later then 2/19. Filed on 2/2 bars went missing 2/9 and now have come back on 2/14. What a messed up system :( Hope everyone else gets there refund info updated quickly. Seems like everyone is running into this situation this year!February 14, 2015 at 8:09 am #4106997
Yippee I finally got my dd date for 2/19. So for those of you worried this was my process. I fiiled on 1/29 accepted a hour later. On 2/3 bars were gone was able to order a account transcript on 2/9 and was able to order my tax transcript on 2/13 and bars came back on 2/14 with approved. It looks like I went the full 21 days to get my refund. Good look to those still waiting I’m with you in solidarity.February 14, 2015 at 7:03 am #4106986
My bars went missing with tax topic 152 and no amount showing. Now it shows processing with the amount on the left. I guess that’s goodFebruary 14, 2015 at 6:21 am #4106982
YES!!!!! We finally got our DD! WMR just updated and says our refund will be deposited on Thursday, 2/19! We filed and were accepted on 2/1 and our transcripts filled in yesterday. Good luck to everyone still waiting! There is light at the end of the tunnel!February 14, 2015 at 4:38 am #4106977
Still no update for me. Friday will be 21 days for me. I’ll wait until then to cry.LOLFebruary 14, 2015 at 1:20 am #4106961
Finally got my check today. I’m so excited! Today was 22 days. Good luck to everyone, this tax season is hell but it all pays off. EVENTUALLY!!!! Lol.February 13, 2015 at 5:14 pm #4106866
For you folks who are now able to see your transcripts. WMR updated the day after I was able to see my transcripts. Hope this helps.February 13, 2015 at 12:38 pm #4106786
i got accepted on 2/3 ,had 1 bar for a week,then for the past 4 days ive had 0 bars ,the tax topic 152 is still there,the refund amount is gone,and it says still processing and will give date when available. If i use my wifes ss number ,it shows 1 bar. I tried getting into my transcripts but couldnt remember my info,so reset it and used the wrong address and had to call the identity protection unit. But,i called the transcript line to see if i could order a 2014 that way,but every option says no information. Ugh ,im at a loss here,the people on the phone wont tell me anything,this is torture.February 13, 2015 at 12:31 pm #4106783
Checked WMR… This is now my message…
We cannot provide any information about your refund. You must wait at least 24 hours after you get the acknowledgement e-mail that your tax return was received by the IRS
Refund amount there and tax topic 152…
Still no bars.. What is this about?February 13, 2015 at 11:59 am #4106763
Ok, this is strange. When I logged in under my husband’s info, his transcripts have all filled in, but if I log in under my info, they still say N/A. We filed jointly. Why would mine not be filled in yet if his are?February 13, 2015 at 11:44 am #4106758
FIled and accepted 01/16, lost bars and had standard processing message a week after filing. Saw all my transcripts pretty early on and never had any offsets or bad codes, everything ending with credits. Finally today I saw something different on my transcript, looks like they took a small portion of my refund and applied it to an old 1040 tax year, and also states a 971, notice to be issued March 2,2015, but also shows credit getting applied to 1040 tax on 02/23/2015. I do not have any 846 for refund issue however. DOes this mean its coming and the notice is going to be regarding the reduction. I would think I would be looking at the 02/23/2015 date for the credit to apply to that year, because the refund has to be approved and payed for them to do that fully correct? Any thoughts would be great. WMR still no bars, just processing…..also looks like im a 5’erFebruary 13, 2015 at 11:42 am #4106757
Woohoo! Our transcripts no longer say N/A and have finally filled in! However, WMR still has not updated and our bars are still missing. Maybe we’ll get an update tonight????February 13, 2015 at 9:55 am #4106704
All I was able to order my transcript this morning. I hope my bars come back tomorrow. This was one of the most awful experiences I’m starting to hate the entire tax process. I filed on the 29th and lost my bars on 2/3 now in the 13th I was able to order my tax transcript. So I hope I will get a dd date for next Friday.February 13, 2015 at 9:24 am #4106687
Thanks for the info! I called Advocate on Tuesday. They gave me a case # and sent it to my local office. Said I would hear from someone by Friday (today). Said no errors on my part and nothing wrong. I was just resequenced. Yesterday morning, transcripts updated with cycle code 20150604. This morning WMR updated with DDD of 2/18. Advocate called a bit ago and seemed surprised that I had a DDD lol. Not sure if it just processed or if Advocate helped, but I finally got my DDD!!!! Curious though, according to cycle code. DD is 2/17, but WMR DDD is 2/18. Will see what happens.February 13, 2015 at 8:08 am #4106646
Funds were in bank this morning! Good luck to everyone! Don’t forget if you are worried call a Tax Advocate (this is not an IRS rep) and tell them you are being evicted (white lie) they will look into it and let you know exactly what is going on. Don’t wait around wondering if there is something wrong. I posted the number somewhere in this thread.February 13, 2015 at 1:14 am #4106551
filed 3rd irs said they accepted on the 5th bars went missing on the 7th called and they said it was not going to process b/c of identity theft. so i answered all ?’s and verified and they put me bk in processing but still have no bars but have amount with no 152 topic codeFebruary 13, 2015 at 1:09 am #4106550
I just don’t understand… No where else would you go get in line and be moved to the back. Yet while your on your way to the back the line keeps growing!..
This drives me crazy and I just hope it’s that! So we stand the chance of getting refunds this month!February 12, 2015 at 11:42 pm #4106532
My bars have gone missing for the past few years this is not a computer glitch; it’s that I always File during one of the busiest filing windows and I’ve been resequenced again. This happens because the irs can’t handle all the tax returns In the system so they process them in a sequence order. Some years I’ve gotten my taxes in two week some years it been close to the 21 days. The irs won’t tell you the truth about the re-sequencing because the tax payers will be pissed and rightly so. Think about it, if we were all under review like all of these urban tells are suggesting then why in a year of Hugh budget cuts would they review so many people. You can’t order transcripts because its not processed; most of us can order a account transcript and you can get that right after your bar dissappear . So the bottom line is we will get our refund when our turn comes up and no amount of calling and wasting your time on hold is going to change that. So for a peace of mind I’m focusing on getting my state back after the fraud fiascial( ga decided to make everyone verify their refund) I’ve decided to let the chips fall where they may with my federal. I’m just sick of it all and if I keep this up I will be ready to pull my hair out.February 12, 2015 at 8:40 pm #4106476
@memphismom Thanks! Hang in there you will get yours.February 12, 2015 at 7:19 pm #4106456
Congrats Rasten!!! I’m happy you finally got your DDD.February 12, 2015 at 5:12 pm #4106417
This is how I felt every morning checking for updates. Hang in there guys and gals. If you fear that you are being reviewed (highly unlikely) just call a tax advocate they can see everything.February 12, 2015 at 4:49 pm #4106413
@muggie I called Monday morning. My transcripts updated Monday night/Tuesday Morning. WMR updated with DDD yesterday morning.February 12, 2015 at 4:39 pm #4106409
I still have no bars, no tax topic… Still have refund amount shown! Generic still processing date will be available when available.February 12, 2015 at 4:33 pm #4106407
Topic 152 disappeared when my bars did. I still have the refund amount showing though. Not sure about the logic behind it all.February 12, 2015 at 4:01 pm #4106402
Does anyone know what it means if you no longer have topic 152? I’m asking because most of you are saying you still have it, but I don’t.February 12, 2015 at 3:47 pm #4106395
My bars went missing. I had the topic 152. A few days later they were back and I received my refund yesterday. I filed around the 24th I think.February 12, 2015 at 3:42 pm #4106391
@ looloo – This happened to us last year and it appears to be happening again this year. When we lost our bars last year, they were gone for at least a couple of weeks. It didn’t take months, but it did take at least 6 weeks to finally get our refund. This year, we filed and were accepted on 2/1 and our bars and refund amount went missing on Monday morning and we just get the generic “still processing” message with topic 152, exactly like last year. I just hope we don’t have to wait as long as we did last year!February 12, 2015 at 3:31 pm #4106387
My bars went missing today (2-12-2015) I filed on the 2nd, and accepted on the 3rd.
I have been reading horror stories that it will take months to get resolved. Say it isn’t so! Does anyone have an idea of what is going on? Is it a system glitch by chance? And anyone who had this happen get thier bars back? How soon after they disappeared? Unfortunately I can’t get any answers because it hasn’t been 21 days since acceptance. What is this I hear about transcripts letting people know if thier refund has been approved? How do I look at that? Thanks everyone!February 12, 2015 at 3:30 pm #4106385
We should be able to start charging the IRS interest on our returns…February 12, 2015 at 3:23 pm #4106380
Well I finally caved and called the IRS. The gentleman that assisted me was very nice and pretty thorough. He told me they didn’t receive my return until 1/22, Not 1/20 like I had been informed. He also told me that due to the identity flag on my account that they needed to verify all of the info. He said the verification did not begin until 2/2 and that the process takes 4-6 weeks but I should see the refund before then. He said the verification looks to be running smoothly. He could be blowing smoke up my rump but at least he was nice about it.February 12, 2015 at 12:05 pm #4106280
bars went missing the week after that
I called yesterday, and the rep was extremely nice and helpful and told me that there was a math error and that it would take 4-8 weeks from when the error was found (he told me it was found on 2/2).February 12, 2015 at 11:43 am #4106275
Filed 2/3, accepted an hour later.
Bars went missing 2/11 with transcripts N/A
Today the bars are still missing with the message your refund is still being processed…. Tax topic 152 still. Checked transcripts which are now avalable. Shows refund issued and cycle 20150604. Hoping WMR updates tonight.February 12, 2015 at 11:39 am #4106274
No update for me either. Transcript still says N/A. I’m starting to think I wouldn’t be able to see them even if they were available because I can’t view the older ones. I get an error 122 code.
I wonder why some people have the amount missing and some don’t. Or why some still have topic 152 and others don’t.
I think I’m a weekly so I prolly wont get any type of update until Friday maybe Saturday morning if I will get one.
Someone on TurboTax forum who’s bars went missing just got a ddd today for 2/17. So I’m a little hopeful. :-/……just q little LOLFebruary 12, 2015 at 11:32 am #4106270
Still no update. Bars are still missing, refund amount still missing, and still have topic 152. Transcripts still say N/A. We filed and were accepted on 2/1 and bars went missing Sunday night/Monday morning. So frustrating. :(February 12, 2015 at 11:04 am #4106258
Filed and was accepted on the 2/2. On 2/9 my bars went away. Along with my refund amount. I had the topic 152. I see I am not alone here! First time its ever happened to me. The one Bar did stay up there for 6 days them BAM gonzo.February 11, 2015 at 5:02 pm #4106000
Hey guys my status finally updated from approved to sent last note. I am so unbelievably happy, now me my husband and 2 kids can move out of my mother in laws house. I’m just waiting by the mailbox for the next few days. Good luck to everyone, it does get better.February 11, 2015 at 4:57 pm #4105997
Filed and was accepted on the 23rd. On feb 1 my bars went away. Along with my refund amount. I had the topic 152. On 2/7 I checked that morning bars were back and I had a deposit date of 2/11. Got my full refund today. I hope everything works out for everyone. This tax season has been a nightmare.February 11, 2015 at 4:41 pm #4105985
How long after you called the advocate did you receive your DDD? Did you have to wait for a call back and were you given a case #? I filed and was accepted the 28th. Bar went missing the 4th. No info on transcript. I called Advocate yesterday. She said no errors on my part. Said I was resequenced. Gave me a case #, said she sent my case to my local office and that I would hear from them by Friday. Also gave me a local number in case they do not call. So I am wondering how long it took for you to get your DDD after first speaking with advocate. Thanks for all the info.February 11, 2015 at 3:42 pm #4105958
@ Pikkin I agree with Jo, that does not even make sense. Why would a breach with a credit card affect your tax return? Furthermore what the hell could they be reviewing for up to 8 weeks that would satisfy them that it isn’t ID theft? It sounds like you are the only one who used your social security number to file this year, if not she would have said something (I would hope). Even if they thought someone else submitted your return wouldn’t you just have to send in your information to verify your identity?
I’m sorry but that sounds like a BS answer. You probably are not even under review…..why the hell was she looking at 2012? You were asking about this year. Another thing, if you WERE under review I would think the tax advocate would have let you know considering they can see what’s going on with your taxes.February 11, 2015 at 3:07 pm #4105923
The Target credit/debit card breach will not in any way, shape, or form have any effect on your tax return whatsoever. It has absolutely nothing to do with it. The Target breach only involved credit and debit card information that was compromised, not your identity. That’s just another perfect example of the people answering the phones for the IRS having absolutely no clue what they are talking about and will tell you anything just to get you off the phone.February 11, 2015 at 2:58 pm #4105914
So I filed on the 15th through TT…got accepted on the 16th according to TT. I was on 1 bar on WMR until 2/5 when I lost the bars as well as topic 152
In the meanwhile, I tried order my transcripts on line (got the contact IPSU). I did 2X…2 weeks ago as well as last week. They this would not affect my return ( I had to verify my filing status etc etc)
Call the Tax advocate this week, she stated that I was actually accepted on the 23rd by the IRS. and to give it till Friday.
I called the IRS today…finally spoke to a nice woman who looked through my account. Asked me question about my 2012 (weird since I got that on time with no issues)..I verified the information for that.
She continued to look…the outcome…………….I am under manual review due to concerns about identity theft. (I never filed this….or complained about it). Then I remembered in 2013 about the Target credit card and customer account breach. I asked her if action on the part of Target reporting to credit bureaus about that breach( I I have a target credit card) would affect it. She said most likely.
The best..I have to wait up to 8 weeks (April 10th ) to see if I receive a letter, notice or refund. If nothing, call them again. While I am happy that I got an answer, I am so sad that I am in this position.February 11, 2015 at 9:25 am #4105880
I’m hoping to see some type of progress on Friday or Saturday. Monday is a holiday, so I guess no one will be getting any on that day.
I’ve never been resequenced either. It’s lil they haven’t put us in another queue yet because February filers ate seeing updates everyday, yet we are seldom seeing any.February 11, 2015 at 9:16 am #4105874
I finally on Saturday night went from bars missing since Jan 17th and finally came back sometime Saturday night with my refund date. I have heard the are overwhelmed with returns right night and a lot of people including me got new cycle numbers. So for a lot of that have been waiting so long I am hoping we all got good news over the weekend. I have never had mine get recycled before so I know next year not to file early it didn’t help any of us. I hope this helps some of you that have just filled and your bars went missing. It took the whole 21 days for me from Jan 20th when the actually started processing returns.February 10, 2015 at 11:36 pm #4105650
I wonder why some have the refund amount gone and some don’t. Anyone know what it means to have the refund amount still there, and gone?February 10, 2015 at 10:55 pm #4105637
Filed 2/1, accepted 2/1, was at one var until this morning. Now I have no bars, no refund amount and it states it is being processed and they will provide a date once they have one. Why are so many being filed for review?!February 10, 2015 at 9:17 pm #4105585
My one bar disappeared overnight also. 2/10/15. Had a cycle date of 20150505. Now my wmr say my return is processing. How did it go from a cycle date to nothing at all. Confused really need the money like everyone else.February 10, 2015 at 9:10 pm #4105580
Know I analyze the whole conversation with the irs represent she find my file or pretending to find my file with my old address and I move this year if she find my new file she would it find it with the new address not the old one what she found was my old transcripts and with that she look at my new one and she could not find an income because is not processing yet , that’s why !!! And I try to check my transcript but they locked my account when y try to put my new info and when y put my old address take me toward to the questions to identify my self and the an error on the system blocked me for 24 hours , this is B/S.February 10, 2015 at 8:49 pm #4105567
@spikevironata how can u tell if u fall under weekly or dailey cycle..February 10, 2015 at 8:45 pm #4105565
@Rasten yes I don’t have one yetFebruary 10, 2015 at 8:33 pm #4105560
I spoke with a Advocate today who confirmed I was not in any reviews, was a 05 (weekly), and she confirmed they had over a million early efiles that got pushed back because the system couldn’t handle it all. She said we were all being re sequenced and to not feel alone, we are mostly all in the same boat.
They aren’t supposed to be this concise, but I think she felt bad for us. All morning, all she was getting were people with ID flags and no bars in this same position. Weeklys would update by Thursday night, dailies probably sooner. She said they also were trying to eliminate the weekly updaters, so possibly sooner for 05s.February 10, 2015 at 8:33 pm #4105558
Just out of curiosity have any of you checked your Transcripts?February 10, 2015 at 8:13 pm #4105547
I’m pretty sure that all of us who lost our bars are just being re-sequenced. There’s NO WAY in hell we are all in review. This same exact thing happened last year. My husband and I filed last year on January 30th or 31st and we didn’t get our refund until early March. It was crazy. Even if we do go over the 21 days, I’m not going to bother calling the IRS because I don’t believe a single word they say!February 10, 2015 at 8:08 pm #4105544
Spikevironata Thank you for clarifying. I don’t understand why they just wont just tell us we are resequenced. That would make people more understanding of the situation. I guess the government just loves to make people panic.
Why don’t they just halt return submissions until they process the ones they already have? I guess that’s just too logical though.February 10, 2015 at 8:04 pm #4105542
Amber Brittaney Orr
Excuse me for not proof reading lol my bars have been gone for like 2 weeksFebruary 10, 2015 at 8:01 pm #4105538
I like how all these different answers all end with the same timeline. I wish they would just say, tax returns are delayed for this group 6-8 weeks! But they know, they know we will flip out and they know no one will early file again and probably not use the method they used. Turbo Tax is going to have to make some serious amends if they want to stay in business this year.February 10, 2015 at 8:00 pm #4105537
@memphismom the 6-8 week timeframe people keep getting from agents is a direct scripting from the IRS manual. We are not all in review, that is the scripting they want given when an account is being re-sequenced.February 10, 2015 at 7:56 pm #4105532
OMG this is crazy! How is this happening to so many people? If they can’t or won’t verify income until May – July then what the hell could they be reviewing?
If they takes over 45 days do we get interest on our refund?February 10, 2015 at 7:45 pm #4105525
Amber Brittaney Orr
okay so I filed my taxes on the 20th and was accepted on the 21st i talk to three tax advocate. first three told me everything was okay. my 21 days came up today and I talk to someone and she told me that I had been my time has been pushed back because I went under review on the 25th I need some type of information she didn’t tell me what I could do to fix it all she told me was that I had to wait six to eight weeks so I have talked to you….my boss has been gone for 2 weeks now and all I’m getting is processing and date will show when available…February 10, 2015 at 6:44 pm #4105496
Thank you guys I was reading about it and all of you are right they will not receive the w2 until may to July when the season is over , and then if they found something that doesn’t match they will put it against your next years return as an offset . I bite what she told me , she said to wait that time I know they are hiding something they did wrong , and know their behind schedule to make it back with not enough staff ..February 10, 2015 at 6:31 pm #4105487
bournerko8v – What they told you is totally bogus. The IRS doesn’t even start entering W2s into their system until around July, long after tax returns have already been issued. I have found that most people answering the phone at the IRS have absolutely no clue what they are talking about and they rarely tell the truth. The real truth is that their computer system is so screwed up and it has been for years and it can’t handle all of the returns that are being filed at once. Because of this, many returns are getting kicked back out of the system and re-sequenced. That’s why it’s taking so long. It has nothing to do with being reviewed or anything like that. The IRS has had huge budget cuts, so obviously upgrading their computer system isn’t a priority for them right now.February 10, 2015 at 6:29 pm #4105484
My bars disapeared for a few days but then on Saturday I had my bars back with a deposit date of 2/11. We will see if it comes in tomorrow…..February 10, 2015 at 6:26 pm #4105483
@bournerko8v I don’t think that is credible information from them. You got a cookie cutter answer based on the IRS manual. Most of us are all in the same boat as you, we aren’t all in review. They aren’t supposed to confirm there was a system error.February 10, 2015 at 6:24 pm #4105482
Today was my 21st day and finally got the chance to speak to the irs , I’ve been in hold since January 30th because they are verifying my income and w2s because I have two and they are checking everything with the new system update ,if the system flag something they send it to review mine will take up to 8 weeks since the 30th so I know what its happening now they are no letting nothing pass by that’s why my bars are gone and the refund amount with the topic , when they could prove I’m right with the income they will approve it but could take up to 8 weeks since the day they go away.. So lets welcome a review this year my first review ever.February 10, 2015 at 5:03 pm #4105433
@Dawn I think once they mail the check it will actually tell you the exact date that they send it out. I’ve heard that they only mail them on Fridays but can’t say for sure.February 10, 2015 at 5:02 pm #4105432
So I guess I’m going through tax advocate! Apparently mine was sent to review. Which could take only 8 weeks! Lol! Someone apparently tried to steal my identity last year, but resolving it effects this year! So pissed! Anyone know how long it takes advocates to work… I need this money, like others! Going through advocate because of hardship..February 10, 2015 at 4:51 pm #4105419
@memphismom thanxs. ive checked so many times today ive exceeded the limit. but im not getting dd im getting my check mailed, u think they send them out on tuesdays because ive heard they only send out on fridays.February 10, 2015 at 4:31 pm #4105408
my return was accepted on 1/23. today my bars went missing with no information other than “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.” what should I expect next?February 10, 2015 at 2:10 pm #4105326
My bars went missing today as well I was accepted according to TT on 1/22. None of my information has changed since last year, I guess all I can do is wait.February 10, 2015 at 2:04 pm #4105323
Our bars went missing this morning. We filed and were accepted on 2/1 via TaxAct and we had one bar up until this morning. Now, we have no bars and just a message telling us that our return is still being processed and a date will be provided once available. This happened to us last year as well and it took forever to get our money! I think we waited for about 6 weeks last year. This is so frustrating. My brother-in-law filed his taxes the exact same day we did, also using TaxAct, and he got his money on Friday!
So, from what I am reading on here, if our bars went missing today, our return was resequenced and today is our new “accepted” date?February 10, 2015 at 1:41 pm #4105311
@Dawn Don’t worry about seeing the tracker say “sent”. In the past mine never updated to sent until about a week later. Good Luck! Your money will probably post tomorrow morning depending on your bank.February 10, 2015 at 1:26 pm #4105306
My check should be sent by today is what wmrsays. But my status has not changed to sent yet. My 21 dayswill be up thurs, should I wait till then to call? I am just so impatient & I need this to get my own place.February 10, 2015 at 10:23 am #4105167
@memphismom I would give it until Friday morning. Don’t worry just yet. I filed on the 26th and just got my transcripts today. You would have probably already gotten a letter by now if there was a problem. Just hang in there and thing will work out!February 10, 2015 at 10:12 am #4105160
@Rasten I filed and was accepted on Jan 30 at around 5:30a.m……. Wow you have me nervous now. She did say they would be able to expedite the refund and get the amount of the eviction to me.
She asked me how I got their number and stuff too…..Maybe I don’t sound believable. I really hate lying.LOLFebruary 10, 2015 at 9:19 am #4105118
I filed 1/20. Called an spoke with an Advocate today. If there are any Identity issues the IRS has up to 180 days to process your return. The advocate advised me they would try to speed things upFebruary 10, 2015 at 9:09 am #4105105
@memphismom When did you file? Not sure why she would have given you a case# but not given any info on what was going on. Sounds very strange.February 10, 2015 at 9:05 am #4105100
@Rasten okay I tried it again. The lady seemed to have looked up my return for me but didn’t tell me what wad going on. I’m thinking its nothing negative because I would think she would’ve mentioned it ( review etc). She knew exactly which forms we filed, and gave me a case number. Gosh I hate lying.
So do you think perhaps its just we’ve been put on the back burner and have yet to be processed? I told her I saw a message about ID theft and she didn’t confirm that was the reason.February 10, 2015 at 8:11 am #4105067
@memphismom Call right now and you should have a very short hold time. The date of when you filed will not matter if they think you have a hardship. So like I said in previous post just tell them you will be evicted on Friday and need to know status because you are worried!February 10, 2015 at 8:09 am #4105064
@memphismom Yes! Tell them you are going to be evicted on Friday if your rent is not paid.
Update: Finally got my transcipts with code 846 and cycle# 20150602! Looks like the end is near lol!
Anyone else update last night???February 10, 2015 at 7:10 am #4105031
I tried calling a tax advocate yesterday and I had no luck. He wouldn’t look up anything for me since it has not been 21 days yet. Should I lie and make up an earlier accepted date? Would they be able to see the day that I filed?
Example: Saying I filed Jan 13 and tt said I was accepted Jan 15. HahaFebruary 9, 2015 at 10:36 pm #4104916
@Lyn That’s good to hear! I hope everything works out for you. Keep us updated.February 9, 2015 at 10:31 pm #4104914
@Rasten Thanks called a Tax advocate this morning and found out still sitting in a queue waiting to be looked at . But since it has been 21 days for me they pulled it and sent it to a local IRS office and I should be hearing some news from a tax advocate there within 3 business days. So I am crossing my fingers. I recieved a case number and phone number just in case they dont call.February 9, 2015 at 6:19 pm #4104821
@ Dawn once it is accepted it can take them the full 21 Days to process it and issue a return. Once your return is approved it will show it was approved with a ddd or a date they will be mailing your check. Hope this helps some. And in some cases it can take longer then the 21 days.February 9, 2015 at 1:29 pm #4104689
Does anybody no how long it takes for status to change from accepted to sentFebruary 9, 2015 at 9:48 am #4104564
Single father here, filed and accepted 1/23. I called the number and got through to an advocate in no time. At first she said she couldn’t find my return, after several minutes she said she located it only to tell me it was actually accepted 1/30. Not sure why this happened but at least I can rationalize being patient for a few more days.February 9, 2015 at 9:20 am #4104540
@Rasten thank you for the update and info. I hope we all hear something by Friday.February 9, 2015 at 9:06 am #4104529
UPDATE: I filed with TT on 1/26 and was accepted on 1/26 bars went missing on 2/3. I called and spoke with a Tax Advocate. They said they did have my return, but it was re-sequenced. She said this basically means they could not handle the amount of returns they received so they put some on the “back burner” until a spot opens up. She did say I should know something by Friday though. FYI if you want to speak with a Tax Advocate just tell them you are getting evicted (This is not true lol), but you have to have a hardship in order for them to help you. Their number is 1-877-275-8271. I was on hold for about 3 mins so it was quick. Just make some BS lie up and they will get you answers ;) Hope this helps!February 8, 2015 at 9:10 pm #4104393
I hope we get some good news tomorrow as well. I’m trying to stay positive. I’ve been getting on my husbands nerves about it.LOLFebruary 8, 2015 at 8:58 pm #4104392
JamieFebruary 8, 2015 at 8:50 pm #4104387
Hoping we get some updates tomorrow night :)February 7, 2015 at 4:21 pm #4104070
Mine disapeared for about 4 days! I got the topic 152 message. I panicked lol. Then this morning I checked it and the bars were back with refund approved with a deposit date of feburary 11. Hope this makes some feel better. :)February 7, 2015 at 3:23 pm #4104052
@nsee It looks like we are having the EXACT same issue. When I log in I get one bar, tax topic 152 and refund amount. But when I log in with my husband’s info his bars are gone and giving the same message as your husbands. He still has the refund amount though, if that means anything. It is frustrating and depressing at the same time. Hopefully we get a DDD by Wednesday at least. I think I’m gonna dread filing taxes from now on, refund or not.February 7, 2015 at 3:16 pm #4104045
My bars disappeared today, when I use husbands info to check! Refund amount is there and it says… Processing refund date will posted when available!
If I use my info nothing has changed. Still one bar, no DDD, tax topic 152.
Really needing this, like everyone else!February 7, 2015 at 2:11 pm #4104017
was accepted on 1/30 at around 10:30 am. MY bars disappeared on 2/4 early in the morning. This means I was underreview. Meaning a human had to physically look at my return. I have the first time home buyer tax credit. I believe this is why I was under review. The IRS just wants to make sure they get their money from me. Anyway I checked this morning Saturday 2 /7 and WMR showed a DDDof 2/11
So hang in there people it will be fine.February 7, 2015 at 2:05 pm #4104015
I am still in limbo bars disappeared 1/29 or 1/30 filed on 1/13 and was accepted 1/14. I will be calling bright and early on Monday if I dont see some kind of update by then!! FRUSTRATED!! worst tax year ever!February 7, 2015 at 1:31 pm #4103998
I applied 1/19 accepted same day and have had one bar all the way until last night. This morning 2/7 woke up to bars missing. Only thing i can think of is i owe bamacare 140 bucks for insurance penalty and my tax preparer forgot the word drive on my address which does not need a form. Hoping Monday morning I will see some kind of hope as it will be 21 days and a on the phone irs day at 7 am sharp.February 7, 2015 at 12:55 pm #4103968
Hi everyone. I filed 1/30 and was accepted 1/30 around 5:30 a.m. I as of today still have 1 bar, but now under my husband’s info he has no bars. His name is listed first on the return. Although he has no bars, he still has the refund amount listed. I will be 8 months pregnant come Monday and this is very frustrating as we were expecting to get all of the baby things at one time with our refund, as well as get a new vehicle and catch up on some bills. We have never experienced losing bars before. I hope there is a change by Tuesday or I will seriously cry. I will keep you all updated. :(February 6, 2015 at 5:27 pm #4103534
my bars were missing for about a wk and 2 days ago it came vk with approved and a mail date. also that my terefund was lowered because iI owed from a previous year. from whst iI have gatherd bars r usually missing betwren 2 & 7 days but when they retutn u are approved, so tje wait is almost over. This tax seson has been horrible.February 6, 2015 at 1:26 pm #4103395
my bars have been missing for about 3 days. ive tried calling but can never get through to anyone. i filed on jan 15th and they were accepted by the irs the same day but of course i know processing didnt start until the 20th, i just want answers as to wheres my refund?February 6, 2015 at 11:05 am #4103260
I filed and was accepted on 1/29 (late in day) and on Wednesday this week my bars and amount went missing. I called today to see why and if there was a problem. I do owe taxes from 2011 so I fig that was why. I got a very nice lady on the phone that told me I was being resequenced and after she looked into it she said they pulled it for manual review probably due to the back taxes and the large amount of my return. She did say they will satisfy my past due amount and then will release the remainder of my refund. She also said I should have it within the 21 days as there are no flags on my account and to please call back in the 20th if there is no movement. She said so far there is nothing else holding it up and there are NO holds on my account. Hopefully all works out for everyone here!
Another reason (I think) it could have been pulled is because I filed an adoption credit this year since we finalized our adoption of our daughter this past May. The rep did not think that was or will be an issue for my return.February 6, 2015 at 10:54 am #4103252
@ Rasten I agree. When I do get through to an irs agent I have gotten yelled at told not to call until it has been 21 days. And of i do get someone to pull my info up all they is yes we have your return nothing else. When I asked about a glitch they tell me there is no glitch yet there are lots of us that seem to be stuck. Worst costmerservice I have ever had with any place or company. The 10th will be here before we know it. And I won’t be getting off the phone that day until I have answers. I am just hoping we all here something before then.February 6, 2015 at 10:37 am #4103236
@jenn I feel your pain. It’s very annoying! All I want is answers!!! If we are under review then let us know on the website or if it’s a glitch tell us something. Communication goes a long way.February 6, 2015 at 10:08 am #4103201
Still no up date on mine. Still just shows your renturn is still being processed. I am so mad right now. It has been this since Jan 15th when my bars went missing it was accepted on the 13the in a test batch. But I can’t get anywhere with anyone on the irs end I can’t even begin to get answer until Feb 10th when it has been the 21 days from Jan 20th. So it has me seeing red. Hope someone else has better newsFebruary 6, 2015 at 9:56 am #4103187

Hope for you guys too! I filed on Jan 22 and accepted Jan 23rd. I had bars showing only the acceptance through Feb. 3rd. MY BARS DISAPPEARED on Feb. 4th with code 152 and I was really worried and frustrated. This morning Feb. 6th my bars are back showing Approved! DD date of Feb. 10th. Hang in there because this is a common thing happening to many people this year and requires just a little patience I guess :)February 6, 2015 at 9:09 am #4103107
Any good news today?February 5, 2015 at 11:59 am #4102438
No updates for me either…February 5, 2015 at 10:15 am #4102336
@ rasten I agree with 100% if we owed them money they would want it immediately And they would want to know why it hadn’t been paid yet. And I agree you can never get a straightforward answer from anyone there.February 5, 2015 at 10:12 am #4102334
The only update I can contribute at this time is …. I called and got through to a very nice person who actually went and looked up my info (but did state they were not supposed to do that). Anyway, they came back and said that everything looks good on my account and I was scheduled to receive a refund; HOWEVER, my status still has not changed … just hoping for the best!!!February 5, 2015 at 9:55 am #4102321
Also you can guarantee, if it were the other way around and you owed them money they would want answers and their money asap!February 5, 2015 at 9:53 am #4102319
I feel your pain! This has never happened to me either, and no one seems to have a clear answer as to why this is happening!February 5, 2015 at 9:28 am #4102296
Nope no update on mine either. I am so frustrated and so pissed off right now. This has never happened to me so I don’t get it. I always go through a place so it gets done correctly. And when you call Tue irs the refuse to help you so it makes me all that more frustrated.February 5, 2015 at 9:03 am #4102270
Nope this has been a nightmare since the beginning I’ve never been so frustrated this is the first time in years I see something like this .February 5, 2015 at 8:56 am #4102267
Any updates for anyone?February 4, 2015 at 5:11 pm #4101875
iI filefd & wuz accepted on 1/22. had 1 bar for about a week then it dissspered. gone until this morning. noew iI have 2 bars & a date just hang in tjere. things will get better. &nd its great when it does.February 4, 2015 at 4:56 pm #4101866
Just spoke with someone @IRS… Of course could not get a straight answer. I filed and was accepted on the 26th. She said it could just be and overload on WMR or just updating. She did however say, if there was something wrong she would not be able to tell me anything until the 21 days are up!!! They would also contact me if there were any issues. So back to playing the waiting game :(February 4, 2015 at 3:18 pm #4101806
@wit I am not totally sure about the whole bar thing. My bars went missing on Jan 20th and have not returned and mine still just says we are processing your tax return a date will be available when your tax return has been processed. It shows me my amount but this has now not changed since Jan 20th either. and I can download my transcript however I only have phone so I am unable to open my transcript to see what it says. But I assume since I can get into the transcript and it shows for this year that it’s somewhere in the processing part but no clue they won’t tell me anything if I call.February 4, 2015 at 3:03 pm #4101793
I think, but I am not certain, that my bars went away when they started working on mine. When they first went away, I still had topic 152 and my wage transcript showed for 2014 but said no record of taxes found or something like that. Less than a week later all my transcripts showed up with my cycle date. Two days after that WMR reflected two bars and DDD. I was afraid I had been recycled or any manner of things, but it seemseems to be fine.
Hope that helps someoneFebruary 4, 2015 at 2:18 pm #4101750
Bars went missing early last week
No refund yet!February 4, 2015 at 2:08 pm #4101738
2/4 Bars & amount missing
Transcripts N/A still
From what I’ve gathered on here from other post, People that have had their bars go missing, have gotten a DDD 2 business days after they went missing.
So for us that had our bars go missing on 2/4 we should have them back with a DDD on 2/6February 4, 2015 at 12:08 pm #4101644
All 152 means is that you selected direct depositFebruary 4, 2015 at 12:04 pm #4101637
I also lost all bars and return dollar amount but I still have tax topic 152. I am wondering what number people have called to speak with someone from the IRS. I know my return was accepted but now my bars are gone and I still do not have any of my transcripts. Thank you in advance.February 4, 2015 at 11:31 am #4101591
Filed/accepted 1/20. Stuck on 1 bar with no transcripts until 1/28 when my wage/income transcript showed up (with no info). My bars and amount on WMR disappeared on 2/3. Still no update on transcripts. Freaking out.
Should I call the IRS? I’m at work all day so I don’t really want to deal with that.February 4, 2015 at 11:30 am #4101590
I just end a conversation with a irs representative agent and he could not more unhelpfull I explain to him what happend that my bars went away and no topic shows just a message date the date will be provide it i explain that I recently move from one city to another here in Florida , that my bars went away and that I use tt and he because it was a man tell me that call turbo tax to see if they did something wrong I ask him if he could se if there’s something wrong with my tax file return and he don’t even ask me my info to look he just avoid my questions and said to me wait three weeks from the 20 and then call , to see if we receive the tax return and I said to him I see you receive it on where’s my refund and suddenly all disappeared I just want to know if there’s something wrong with my return so that I will know to amend or refile and he just said three weeks from the 20 th of January thank you and hang up. This is ridiculous.February 4, 2015 at 10:42 am #4101542
@ depressed thank for your help as well. I just hope we all have some good news soon. I have never had issues until this year so it has me passed stressed out. So hopefully we all know something soon. I think if we call Irs they should help us not be so rude about it.
@ stressed2themax some people have the topic 152 and no refund amount and then some of us don’t have a topic at all just a expected refund amount so I am not sure what it all means. I just know it has a lot of us worried.February 4, 2015 at 10:32 am #4101532
Ok, so my own says it is still being processed topic 152 no refund amount on side. Last year I owed a balance and paid in full by 8/2014 … would this be a reason it was flagged so that it can be reviewed to ensure I didn’t own anything?February 4, 2015 at 10:29 am #4101529
@jenn … thanks for the info …. your transcripts should say 2014February 4, 2015 at 10:10 am #4101512
@ Depressed no it does not mean your irs refund is ok however it does not mean anything is wrong either. I just got off the phone with irs I was told even though some returns were accepted early it does not mean they have even started processing those returns. And she wouldn’t give me anymore information then that. I know they have my return but at this point who knows. And from what I have seen on other sites most people are getting there state returns back 1st this year. I just now know I am passed stressed. And on transcripts can anyone tell me am I wanting to look at 2014 or will it show 2015? I know we are filing for the year 2014 I just am not sure how it will show up on a transcript year wise. So please help if you know that answer. This is the 1st year I have at problems. So any help would be great thank you so much.February 4, 2015 at 9:42 am #4101481
My bar went missing 1/30 as well with the message still processing …. However, just received my State returns. Does that me that my federal is ok and the wmr system just has not caught up yet?February 4, 2015 at 9:26 am #4101466
I can go to my transcript page log in and see the year I want to pick however it downloads but my stupid phone won’t let me open the transcript so I can even see what it says or doesn’t say. I am on hold with irs now to see if I can get any help. So any idea how to get a pdf file to open on a phone I can do most files and they open however these ones will notFebruary 4, 2015 at 9:00 am #4101437
My bars went missing on the 30th. I was able to order transcripts with cycle date 20140404 no 846 code. Yesterday morning I got my 846 code and this morning WMR finally updated and gave me a DDD of 02/06th.February 4, 2015 at 8:51 am #4101431
Ok, I just got off the phone with the IRS. The agent was maybe one of the NICEST people I’ve ever talked to. I filed on the 26th and was accepted the same day. I asked her since my bar disappeared did that mean that I was currently under review. She actually looked for me and said that 1) I am not, and 2) IT DOESN’T SHOW THAT I WAS ACCEPTED UNTIL 2/2!!!!!!!!!! WTF???????????? Why is this happening to people? I told her that I got a confirmation email from the IRS on the 26th saying I was accepted then. Ugh! This means that my 21 days starts from the 2nd, not a week before on the 26th. I feel like falling on the floor and sobbingFebruary 4, 2015 at 7:28 am #4101368
Just to update…
Filed/accepted 1/23. Bars and refund amount went missing on 1/28 but topic 152 still there. Message said that my tax return is still being processed and refund date would be provided when available. Transcripts were available on 1/30. WMR updated that night to show refund approved and DDD of 2/4. I did receive my deposit this morning. WMR doesn’t say it was sent yet.
So, in my case, everything was fine. Even if it meant manual review, it only took 2 days.February 4, 2015 at 6:55 am #4101331
I filed 1/26 Ashley and my bar went away too. I still cannot access my transcripts, (either). Stuck with no explanation. I’m so pissed. I see people that got accepted on the 31st with DDDs, and saw on that was accepted on the 30th that has gotten their money deposited yesterday. I think I’m staying off the site from now on. I can’t take the constant disappointment. This makes no sense at all.February 4, 2015 at 6:48 am #4101326
Has anything change for anyone else?February 4, 2015 at 6:45 am #4101324
I filed on the 13 was accepted and had one bar until the 31 went missing so confusedFebruary 3, 2015 at 4:55 pm #4100797
Be sure to send in Form 8962 for the healthcare. I was accepted on 1/12 and I know I’ve been waiting since the 20th. Bars on WMR disappeared 1/26 and transcripts N/A. Finally spoke with someone yesterday that helped me and they informed me that they didn’t receive my initial form and that’s why I was stuck processing.February 3, 2015 at 4:54 pm #4100796
My bars went missing, but my refund amount was still there. I tried to pull transcripts and was told to contact the identity theft department. When I finally got through I was advised I was under review and thats why my bars went away – it was due to an identity theft flag from 2013 that was resolved. They said it can now take up to 9 weeks for my return to process since an actual human at the irs will be reviewing my return. I think i might cry now…………February 3, 2015 at 4:45 pm #4100791
My Wife and I filed and was accepted on the 1/22, we tried to pull transcripts last week and got the message to call identity theft unit, few days later we lost bars on the WMR well i called today and they told me that i would have to call them to get transcripts they lady then checked our refund and said it looked fine but we were accepted on the 29th not the 22. I checked my filing and it shows we were accepted on the 22nd so i’m not sure whats going on , but i feel like that’s why our bars went away and now we will have to wait on a update.February 3, 2015 at 10:57 am #4100487
So far this tax season has been a nightmare for me! I filed 1/13 using tax slayer and was accepted 1/14. Then 1/30 my bar disappeared and my refund amount was still there but had a message saying still processing that refund date would be provided when available so no more 21 days or less guarantee. So I attempted to get online transcripts only to get the message contact identity protection specialized unit…..so I started to freak out. So after trying to call day after day and getting told that the call volume was TOO high and to try back later (figured out best time to call 7-8am and I still waited on hold for 40 min). Once I actually spoke to someone she asked me questions to verify my identity and then told me it may take up to 8 weeks from 1/30 to process my return but it may be before then. She also informed me that my return was under manual review i couldnt Remember if i used the same pin from last year or not! I’m praying since I confirmed my identity that this will get my bars back sooner than 8 weeks! Anyone in a similar situation that has moved from no bars to a DDDFebruary 3, 2015 at 9:27 am #4100392
Has anyone who filed early and was accepted on Jan 13th got a refund date yet? Mine was accepted that day and now it says still being processed with no bars and no topics showing. So I am just wondering if anyone’s has changed from processing to a refund date. I have never had any issues until this year. So I am hoping for some good news soon.February 3, 2015 at 6:03 am #4100223
Yo unknown this is really rediculous. Another way Government just does what they want to do. My bars went missing but amount is still showin. However that can disappear also. But the one thing we can all be assured of…. is
No body in Congress is haVing an issue getting their funds back….with all their huge tax write offs.February 3, 2015 at 3:14 am #4100175
I’m glad I found this because my boyfriend and I have been stressing. Both of us filed on the 23rd & were both accepted about an hour later. We both worked at the same job and are getting basically the same refund amount back. I have bars and a DDD of 2/4/15. His bars went away Saturday. I don’t know if the bars missing actually indicates you’re under review because I actually saw a screen shot of another person’s WMR tracker and theirs actually displays a message telling them they’re under review & the IRS will be in contact if need be.
Fingers crossed for everyone going through this! We need his refund to come so we can get a car and start working again.
Hang in there guys!February 2, 2015 at 3:44 am #4099423
I had one bar Friday night with topic 152 and Saturday morning I had no bars and the topic was gone! I can still see the refund amount but it says Your tax return has been received and its still processing. I have all my transcripts and can even order them but no 846 code yet.February 2, 2015 at 3:10 am #4099419
So no tax topic nmmeans what?? It went from one bar to no bars no topic on the night of the big update … Filed 1-7 accepted 1-13..February 1, 2015 at 3:15 pm #4099169
My bars went missing Saturday Morning. I checked my transcripts and still no 846 code. Im still Cycle 20150405 and My topic 152 disappeared but Im still seeing my refund amount. Im hoping for an update soonFebruary 1, 2015 at 10:31 am #4099040
I still have no bar just says we have recieved your return and it is being proceeded…. I still see the refund amount but no codes are listed?January 31, 2015 at 8:03 pm #4098801
Bars and amount went missing on 1/28. Generic message that return is processed and refund date will be provided when available along with topic 152. Transcript becamed available yesterday with refund issued code. WMR update this morning to refund approved and DDD of 2/4 with full refund amount.January 31, 2015 at 7:56 pm #4098797
I wake up this morning and my bars went away and the same message and no topic yesterday it was accepted topic 152 and today gone away I called irs and automated system says is being review this is crazy I file on the 9 accepted the 12 and know this my uncle file the 17 and have his refund yesterday.January 31, 2015 at 2:36 pm #4098682
I woke up this morning to my bars missing as well. Hopefully, this is good news and I see a DDD next week.January 31, 2015 at 11:22 am #4098550
Kristin..our bars and refund amt went missing for over a week with tt152 remaining…we finally updated…after a lot of nail biting …and have DDD Feb 4. Hang in there…..try not to fret..your d day is coming soon!January 31, 2015 at 10:32 am #4098510
As of this morning my bar that I had disappeared but amount still showing but know code , anyone know what this means. ..?January 31, 2015 at 10:14 am #4098496
I also went from one bar with topic 152 to no bars and no topic just the “we are still processing your return we will issue a refund date when one becomes available” message. Refund amount still shows though. No letter from the IRS. This is nightmare.
Filed the 16th. Accepted the 20th.January 31, 2015 at 9:25 am #4098447
My bars went missing at midnight as well.January 31, 2015 at 9:02 am #4098420
Filed and accepted on the 13 the bars went missing on 1/31….can somebody please explain thisJanuary 31, 2015 at 12:50 am #4098283
Are you serious? It means under manual review?? Our return was flagged? Our return is almost exactly the same as last year. Nothing different. It was just simple & straight forward. We didn’t claim anyone new, didn’t claim any crazy deductions. We are not getting much $ back as in previous years. In that video that guy talks like he is confident about that. This definitely worries me. We finally got our transcripts today & had the cycle code and the 3 digit # on one of the 2014 transcripts. Now under review according to info on the web and video link posted below. :(January 30, 2015 at 12:47 pm #4097857
As well I’m still missing bars and no DDDJanuary 30, 2015 at 12:46 pm #4097856
I meant *accepted *January 30, 2015 at 12:45 pm #4097855
I don’t think it matters whether you filed before or after opening. I have been excited since Jan 12th and I was just able to see account transcript today, almost 18 days later. I think its not done in order just when they are up. I have that 846 code everyone is talking about and 2-16-15 issued date.January 30, 2015 at 12:40 pm #4097848
Fitbliss…my bars and refund amt were mussing for over a wk! Still had TT 152 though. Could pull up acct Tran today and it had refund code and date of 2/16. So that was a relief!.wmr still hasn’t updated. IRS seems to be having major slowdowns and or glitches this yr. We had w2s, extra small bus income, and ed credits for our daughter. Glad I can finally see some progress! Hang in there! Your d day is coming soon!January 30, 2015 at 9:24 am #4097595
I filed on 1/25/15 and this morning my bar was gone and I had the 152 listed there to read. I’m gonna hope that means it is in review and I get a ddd by Monday. Can you call ahead of 21 days? I am feeling a little better knowing I am not the only one. I also read that anyone filing before 01/26 would have a longer review. Forget which article I read that in.January 30, 2015 at 7:24 am #4097472
Autumn supposed to be I filed on the 13th accepted on the 14th and still no progress.January 30, 2015 at 2:12 am #4097323
Autumn, I died on the 13th and accepted the 16th and nothing. Filed my husbands on the 23rd, he got his money back Tuesday night at 9:55. I’ve never seen a refund turn around that fast. Not even a full week. Upsetting bit nothing we can do but wait!!!January 30, 2015 at 12:17 am #4097276
Filed 1/13, accepted 1/15. Still being processed, not yet approved and no DD tax topic 152. I’m worried because I filed my husbands the 23rd and his DD is 1/30…January 28, 2015 at 10:13 am #4095555
My bars are still missing. When I pull transcripts it has wages for 2014 but there is no amount. I can pull account transcript but it is blank also, saying at the bottom no return filed. So I will continue to wait. Filed on the 14th, accepted on the 14th, bars have been missing for a while now.January 28, 2015 at 6:51 am #4095274
I was accepted on the 13th, and my bars went missing a few days later. I checked my transcript last night which had a refund issue date of the 16th. Where’s my refund finally updated today and I have an approved and ddd of January 30th. Hold on people your money is on the way! !!!January 28, 2015 at 4:26 am #4095188
I was one of those people that lost all their bars AND refund amount. Tonight WMR is finally working for me and I have a DDD of January 30!
Filed: January 7 (Turbo Tax) (Greendot Card)
Accepted: January 12
Lost Bars: January 15
Transcripts: January 27 (Cycle 20150402)
I also live in California (in case anyone wondered)January 28, 2015 at 12:34 am #4095107
Was accepted on the 20th..3 days later bars were missing, but refund amt and TT 152 still there..then refund amt went missing but tt152 stayed..waiting patiently on my bars and refund amt to reappear! We did file ed credits for daughter in college and I have craft show income..but have reported these the past 2 yrs so nothing new on our return! Hoping its just a glitch…January 27, 2015 at 9:22 pm #4095005
So before i had still processing no bars and no amount tt 152. Now it says I check to much but now it says my refund amount. Is that a good thing maybe a change?January 26, 2015 at 10:58 pm #4094357
Accepted on the 12th. Lost bars on either the 13th or 14th. Your tax return is still being processed. Topic 152 still. Saw that peoe started getting g direct deposit dates today. If I Dont see an update in the morning, I am going g to burn their phone lines up and the local news too. It is a bunch of crap that we get accepted in a test batch and thrown in a dumpster the same week.January 26, 2015 at 4:57 am #4094101
OK mine was received on January 15th and I have one bar it never disappeared this is news to me that the bars ate disappearing. Now I know the start date is the 20th so I wasn’t pressed until I saw my job changed our EIN number and my info is wrong so I called the IRS finally spoke to someone like if my EIN was wrong it should have been rejected she said if the address and name matched that EIN it wouldn’t so I should hear from them if they need info but they should have the correct info right?????January 25, 2015 at 6:36 am #4093956
to respond for under review we all were accepted early tax season did not open till 1/20/15 so if they didn’t start accepting till then we can not be under review yet. I was told by IRS not to worry about bars since we filed early and they were still updating there system to keep checking back wmr makes sense how can they review all of us if they didn’t open till 1/20January 25, 2015 at 6:34 am #4093955
Filed with TT and accepted 1/12/15 within day’s not sure which day but my bars are still gone with general message and topic 152 anyone else change as of today? I’m still the sameJanuary 24, 2015 at 8:46 pm #4093864
I had my bar disappear as well. I filed on January 8th accepted on the 12th had bars on WMR stating that I had been accepted, then check on the 18th or 19th and no bars just a statement saying ” We have received your return and it is being processed and a direct deposited date will be provided when available.” Someone on here posted a link to a video stating that we are under review. I check the IRS website under frequently asked questions and they address this problem as the same thing that because our bars disappeared we are under review. Their are so many people who have lost their bar I am not sure if it is a glitch or what. Has any one that has bars missing tried to pull up their Tax transcripts and see if anything more then just the 2014 Wages and income transcript is present. The transcript link is located on the IRS home page. If you get any information can you let me know what you see. Thank you.January 24, 2015 at 5:19 pm #4093834
My bar disappeared yesterday and I’m really worried even though when I called, the irs rep said he couldn’t see any problems with my tax return. Never had this happen before… Anyone talk to a rep? What did they tell you?January 24, 2015 at 9:18 am #4093733
Same thing here bar went away and still nothing this morning or any other time it has been this way since at least Tuesday when they opened.
