    Just wanted to make a topic for people to go to when they have been put under review and share their experiences.

    Filed 1/12 HRB online. Accepted 1/30. I was processing 1/30,1/31, and 2/1 and finally updated to this:
    We have received your tax return and it is being reviewed. You will receive a notice from us requesting additional information within 30 calendar days. You may not receive all or part of your refund until we receive and review the information we requested. If you need more information after you receive our notice, call the number on the notice.
    Please do not contact us until you have received the notice as we are unable to take any action until then.

    Ok, i havea unique story i’m sure…i’m still processing..my return is readyfor me I just have to lift this hold..its a ID theft thing..this chick did not for sure confirm this,but allthree agaents i talked to mentioned this as the most likly cause..

    what sucks is i have to wait for this letter, it will tell me what i need to do or it will send me further into depression..says not to worry, she said only worry if WMR says something other then processing..lets hope.

    don’t sleep till WMR updates…
    sleep couple hours
    Wait for mail..
    live on this site to help me to the next day of waiting.
    yesthis is mylife.

    everything has fell to shit waiting on this return…saying” 2 things in life are certain-death,and taxes”. wish it were tax returns..

    good luck everyone..i’ll let u know when i get my letter..calling is out for me from here on out..like doing the final sttretch ofa jail sentence in solitary

    I was told last week by H&R Block that most people don’t know they’ve been reviewed; that usually the irs rep tells them they are still processing. If a letter is sent, thrn it is either a math error, w2 amounts don’t match, or a dependent has either a wrong SS#, or is new, or was claimed by someone else last year. If a human has to look at it, a letter is sent….if the computer reviews it, your stuck in processing limbo until the next cycle.

    This lady just said we would get a letter dated 2/25, and I asked why it took so long for a letter to go out, she said she didn’t know. I am going to call back later or tomorrow see if I can get someone more helpful.
    The way she made it sound was they won’t even “review” it until after the date of the letter and that was why to allow an additional 60 days after the letter.

    Just told we would get a letter DATED 2/25 wtf? ccpo5 or something like that. We were selected at random nothing is wrong, no red flags, no errors.
    It can take 60 days AFTER the notice to get a refund.
    So now I am saying WTF? We filed the 16th, accepted the 30th ordered transcripts 2/4 now we won’t get a letter until after the 25th and the “time” for processing don’t start until AFTER the date on the letter.

    #7774 Reply

    I have not received a letter yet. Both departments told me to wait the 21 days, that my return was being reviewed, but would only last another 7 days. This was Friday; and my 21 days would be over on the 19th.

    impatientlyawaiting: I did received a 4464c letter dated Feb 1. I just do not have the time to go back to customer service department for another over 15 minute hold as I am at work. I will try them at lunch but no idea if not in refund hold department, not in error department where return is (guess sitting somewhere). She said the return started processing on the 28th and she said that some returns may have been picked out by computer in the test batches for review. She just said not her department and could not provide any further information. Seems like no one has a concrete answer outside of the fact my return was re sequenced for a cycle or 2 which I was told 2 weeks ago.

    @yvette63 that is what we are assuming because we’ve seen ppl who are actually under review have a code on wmr and hotline. with ours, it is just processing and we haven’t gotten an error code or some kind of irs ref code on both the wmr & hotline. we’ll see…i’m gonna call tomorrow to hold dept and see if i get the same answer.

    Okay, I filed on 1/30 and was accepted on the same day. On both WMR and the IRS hotline I have been getting the same generic 21 day message. Saturday, I got the dreaded 4464c letter in the mail. It has a 0 code on it. However, when I check WMR and the hotline, I’m still getting the same 21 day processing message. Is there a chance that this letter was just a glitch?

    I found some good reading: http://www.irs.gov/irm/part21/irm_21-004-001r.html from what I can gather, those who are “still processing” have been resequenced. These are the codes that appear on tbe IRS rep’s screen when they open our returns.

    So I’ver called IRS, told me that it looks like potential fraud is holding my return..she wasn’t sure..have yet to get a letter..accepted 26th, order trans 2nd..

    I am thinking when i do get this letter is it going to be the identity affidavid..if so could I fill that out now..

    Anyone ever get a hold for this reason..

    i filed a claim on 2009, stating my taxes were done w/o my knowledge…one visit, i never followed up because it was my ex girlfriend (daughters mother), i just wanted to let go..’
    lady on the phone knew this whole story and she really thinks with all the little notes on my account that this 2009 fraud stuff is comming up…
    Wierd ecause the last 3 years went through nno problem,and this year is the excate same everything-(except i made a few more $)

    Just to confirm if there is a code on your letter 4463C would it appear after the C? I just wan to have my facts straight when I call the holds department in the morning. I hope so as two reps told me I should still receive refund within 21 days and this error code is nothing to worry about. When I asked what the error code was the one rep said it was an “internal” code. I did confirm I was re sequenced also.

    For the first few times I called I acted like I knew nothing about the letter and asked if the following:

    Are there any debt indicators on my account: No
    Are there any flags on my account : No
    Are there any holds on my account : No
    Has my return be re sequenced : after putting me on hold … Yes
    Do you have a DDD for me: Not showing one but it should be within 21 days
    Why did I receive a letter 4464C: Put me on hold to go and find the letter…aked me what the letter said again trying to confirm things and then told me this code is nothing to be alarmed about. As he searched for a reason he asked me how much was refund and told him over 8k and he stated “ah ok that is why you may have received the letter”

    1. File 1/20, accepted as part of test batch 1/25 IRS rep says really accepted 1/28 (as of Friday Return not processed yet per rep)
    2. No Education Credits
    3. I can only order account transcript which I received and it is blank
    4. Just says processing on App and WRM and 21 should receive refund
    5. Received 4464C dated 2/1/13
    6. Return over 8k
    7. EIC, W-2, 2 dep
    8. Same job last 10 years, same dependents as last year, address, similar refund amount to last year

    Also got the review message on the wmr site . . For those who received only their federal witheld without the eic portion, how long did you receive that after you got the status on wmr. And have you received your letter before they deposited it? I just got that message yesterday and was wondering about how long before I can at least see some kind of deposit.

    okay who broke the hotline… and WMR… jk jk… @squidney2k1 sometimes a new bundle of joy can flag the system… especially a new SS number… if you called and they said there wasn’t a problem I wouldn’t worry as much… if you don’t get your return or get a letter with a code… then start worrying… i posted the info on the codes a few pages up so you can look….i also think that all of this transcript checking is causing lots of problems… any one with a computer knows that they some time do what they want and if you keep forcing it to do something it gets mad at you and starts thinking with that stupid hour glass…so after 15 minutes you have to shut it down and start all over…. now imaging that times 9 million…but i also could be wrong….I am no tax expert by any means but after all of this drama i know could very well know more than those mean people telling us just to wait…. I am more so trying to reassure myself more than anybody else but if I can ease other people tension at the same time why not… lol

    @Mega I’m not saying every last “under review” is a glitch I’ve gotten confirmation that mine was indeed a glitch due to the testing that they did so I basically said if you had a similar situation as mine then it could very well be…i posted that a few pages ago sorry wasn’t trying to give false hope…BUT being audited and under review are totally different and not to be confused.

    I have no codes under WMR or the hotline they both say processing as usual… Now the code you that are getting are from the hotline or are you talking about that Tax topic at the very bottom of the WMR screen if so that is just reading material about the refund… I will check the codes for those that have that under the hotline cause i have no clue what they mean…I also see a pattern with the people who filed and early and those to filed on the first two days of tax season… my personal opinion as of today is the letter was a glitch…now The hotline people may really be under review…. but dont flip out cause from what I am reading it can be anything from a math error to like the earlier post someone else claimed a child then a new person claimed the same child… that’s why the codes…. They have been reviewing returns for that reason cause it is very common people sell there kids “not literally” of course but they let someone claim there kids and spit the refund…. and its more common then you would think…EIC gives like 5000 for two kids so that’s one reason why the review… I know that’s not the problem for me cause I have claimed my brat for more than 5 years… I know we are stressing out… i will post back with more info soon

    I called today and actually got a nice rep on the first try. She checked my info and told me the small deposit I received was just my federal withholding. (Which I already figured). She then told me I technically wasn’t under review but my return was pulled because I filed my niece and she was filed by someone else last year. She said my return was in a pile and it’s a possibility it will be examined by a IRS agent within 90 days!! She said its also a possibility that they would kick it out and send out my refund but for right now my return is in some kind of retarded IRS limbo state. Long story short: I’m pretty much fucked until they decide they’re done with me

    if you’re being audited, you will actually get a letter from IRS saying you’re audited. being reviewed and audited are two different things.

    I don’t have a 151 I have 152 which talks about receiving your money. Did you guys with 151 get a letter in the mail? Or maybe you both have an offset…have you tried to call and find out if that is the case?

    The only think I did different this year was claim my daughter, she is 3, her mother claimed her for the past 2 years, so that gave me the hoh ctc and made me qualify for the eic this yr. I spoke to 4 reps yesterday. 2 said my refund had a hold and was under review, the 3rd said something about a problem with last years return which i was transfered and found out that was not the problem. Called the 4th time and they looked it up took 30 minutes kept coming back on the line to let me know he was still checking on it. He didnt say anything about a hold or review. Said Im still in the begining of processing and he doesnt see how they could have put it on hold or review so early on in processing. I have not had a status bar since I filed. All wmr and the hotline says is that im processing and a direct date will be provided when available. Oh by the way one of the first 2 reps said they were going to mail out a cp05 next week but none of the other 3 reps said anything about that.

    I think there is a glitch in the matrix… lol…. we all have similar timeframes were early filers and are getting more than 7k back….also CTC and EIC… FLAG on the play…. lol…. same thing happen last year…. all of us were prob sent back though the system flagged cause our info was ran twice and poof… review letter… or at least I hope…. i swear if you google this topic one year to the day you will find exactly the same issue… I think the IRS computers went coo coo and started sending out letter for most of the early filers like was said earlier… now as for the WMR review codes…. those people may very well be under review….WHO KNOWS…. still searching for more info… but as of today WMR still says processing….

    @kay your return goes to the address in which you typed in the beginning so if you typed your old addy then you wont see it at your new one. My local post man said that government mail does not get forwarded even if you selected to have your mail forwarded so that might be why you don’t have your account transcript yet

    @impatiently & fnr That’s what the rep told me that returns that were accepted early were tested went through the full process and at the point of refund the letter was generated because IRS was not accepting returns only testing the system. So now the returns are being accepted and our returns have been re sequenced and are really processing now. Explains why most letters have a 0 and not an actual code and most WMR’s say 21 day processing

    That cp05 I’m not sure what it is I have a letter like Kay where there is no additional code just a zero so from what I was told I was being re sequenced after being apart of a test batch, @swiggins your wmr is totally different from mines as I’ve always and still have the 21 day message. See what it says Monday and if not try to call the holds department see what they say.

    @fnr when I spoke to regular reps they never mentioned being reviewed the first time I said I was afraid of i.d theft and then the rep opened my full account put me on hold and came back with the review. When I called other reps they too said they didn’t see anything so I always mentioned that I received a letter [at that point I really hadn’t] and it was the same thing they put me on hold came back and said “I just need to do what the letter says and wait” 1 rep said it was for my protection that they hold the funds…I never got a straight forward answer until speaking to the rep from the holds department.

    WMR still gives 21 day processing message
    Can’t order return transcripts
    Filed 01/17
    Accepted 01/24
    No education credits just EIC, W2’S, claimed my 2 children, husband still in military I happened to work 2 different jobs and my kids went to a new daycare this year

I can’t find anything for 0 at all… now it might be different for those who got there info from WMR but… I think this letter for now is a glitch… Plus from reading about the forms it is 100% computer generated… I’m doing some more research so I will let you guys know what else I find out…. trying to be as helpful as I can… :)

    @holly Although I can’t give you a 100% answer I would say to read both mine and royjb post, seems like in his case he actually had to get a hold removed and in my case the hold was just for testing and was already lifted.

    @kay I was loosing my mind up until I hung up the phone with Ms. Garcia, I have been researching like crazy, becoming OCD with WMR and trying to order transcripts I was even reading stuff from 2009

    @taxpayer if you have a hold on your return that is not related to any of the current tax delays like 8863 then I would certainly call the hold line and see what they say it’s a lot better than worrying I know it made me feel so much better

    Here is our story so far:
    Filed on the 1/16 (HRB) IRS accepted it 1/30 was able to order both transcripts on 2/4. Still said processing on 2/5 so we called. They told us everything looked fine and that it was still processing give it until 2/20 and call back. Called again yesterday to see what was going on and if we could get a DDD. They lady told us it was under review. We didn’t do anything wrong, NO letter had been sent out. No codes were given. She also couldn’t give us an average time it takes to review.
    My question is: If we aren’t getting a letter, or error codes then what is going on?

    I highly advise everyone to call that number. I spoke with a Ms. Garcia who was a sweetheart and she was very helpful. She stated that the IRS has a new system this year and for that system they accepted a few returns as a test. [I was accepted on the 24th] Those returns accepted as a test were just that a test, by no means was that your actual acceptance date since they did not begin processing until the 30th. So the test subjects returns fully went through the system and were assigned a number and then when they opened the flood gates on the 30th they were sent back through for what they call re-sequencing. That triggered the 4464c letter. She looked over my return line by line and told me there were no red flags and that it was actually being processed she even verified my banking information to make sure there would be no hold ups when the time comes around. I thanked her so much because I have gotten nothing but jerks on the line unwilling to assist. She also stated that if you were really up for review your WMR would update to say that along with an error code. If you were accepted early I would assume maybe you are in the same category as me but it always feels better to hear that for yourself so call call call and goodluck everyone. I will keep you all posted and I ask that you do the same. Have a great weekend!

    I called today and actually got a nice rep on the first try. She checked my info and told me the small deposit I received was just my federal withholding. (Which I already figured). She then told me I technically wasn’t under review but my return was pulled because I filed my niece and she was filed by someone else last year. She said my return was in a pile and it’s a possibility it will be examined by a IRS agent within 90 days!! She said its also a possibility that they would kick it out and send out my refund but for right now my return is in some kind of retarded IRS limbo state. Long story short: I’m pretty much fucked until they decide they’re done with me

    We have received your tax return and it is being processed.
    You should get your refund within 21 days from the date we received your tax return.

    Please check here or use our free mobile app, IRS2Go, to check on your refund status.

    I also still have not received my account transcript as of today…. one week later… maybe it will come Monday or maybe just maybe (praying) that’s what the letter about… it had no code to reference to at all…. I decided not to call until this whole delay of the 8836 form has been settled…Also after I got the letter I went flipping google search crazy and A LOT of people using TT are getting the letter and the codes on WMR… I’m just praying for good news for ALL of us…

    The lady I talked to today says the updates in the processing system caused some returns to be kicked to review for no reason at all. When she looked at my account, she went line-by-line and say no codes or flags. After having me on hold for about ten minutes, she came back on the line, said she removed the hold on my refund, and placed my account back into the normal refund delivery system. She said I should be able to see my direct deposit date in a couple days.

    If you have been told by an IRS agent that you are under review, or that your refund is on hold, ask to be connected to the “holds department”. They can tell you more than the regular reps, and they have the power to make changes on your account.

    impatientlywaiting: That coincides with what the agents where telling me. Two different agents stated I should still receive my refund in the 21 day time frame from the date it started processing on the 28th. We shall see as the 28th day if they include weekends will be the 2/17 as I know 2/18 is a holiday.

    I’m under review…filed the 30th, accepted the 30th as per the IRS. I just called, and was told that I’m under review, and it should only last approx. 7 more days. Same return as the past 10 years. Self Employed, 2 dep, HOH, EIC. In fact, My return is about the same as last year, and the past few years.

    Okay here’s my two cents not that it really means anything on the 1st of Feb I ordered a account transcript for 2012 could not order the return transcript cause I have the education credit which as we all found out does not process until Feb 14 so How can I get a transcript on a year that hasn’t happen yet… for me anyways… what I am thinking is I received the letter because of the delay of the 8863… there is no code on the letter or the hotline or WMR….I am still and have been since the 23rd processing… I AM NOT calling cause all they do is give me the run around… My patiences is way to then right now for that… now I could be totally wrong about this theory but… I wont know for sure till next week…. I will keep you posted on what happens…

    Ok, here’s my story:
    Used Turbotax. Filed 1/24, accepted 1/26. 1 W-2, EIC with 3 kids, same as last 3 years.
    WMR and hot line have been processing ever since. No codes or review messages.
    I called yesterday and the rep wasn’t helpful, said they didn’t get my return on 1/26, that they got it 1/31. Said everything looked ok, just give it 3 weeks (21 days).
    Called again this morning since I still didn’t get an update on WMR, rep looked and said I had a hold on my return but she didn’t know why. She didn’t see any codes or anything and said they haven’t mailed out a letter. If they need anything they will mail one out but just figure 45 days before its released!
    So I called this afternoon to see if another rep seen something different. Nope, it’s under review, she doesn’t know why. I may get a letter, maybe, if they need info. I asked her why WMR doesn’t say I’m under review and she said its not accurate.
    I am soooo annoyed with this whole thing!

    I received this letter today it was very general and nothing specific as to why I am under review… I’m glad to know I am not the only one… Now for some reason my State (MI) has been pending acceptance since the 30th but today for some reason it was approved. As for my info

    Filed 7th
    Accepted 23rd

    Also like someone else mentioned I have had far greater success with the men looking up my file. I usually try to ask them how their day is going and engage in some conversation while they are looking up my info (ie. weather, where they are located, sports, etc).

    hackney2009: 1st objective is to try to get them to open your file and look at it. Ask them that you just wanted to check to see if you have any errors or any debt indicators/offsets, flags, or under manual review on your file. They have to look at your return to find that information out. Once they have your file open then you can ask what you really want to know. If your refund was reduced then at that point ask them about the reduction and if they can tell you why the reduction.

    Sometimes it takes multiple calls to get someone that is willing to help as many of them are trained to be rude and not open your file.

    Deuce1911 what questions did you ask? I want to call and try to get some answers for myself but I don’t want to get railroaded

    Just because I don’t know what I’m talking about. Also I posted on the IGMR Facebook page and a lady told me the problem is

    That I filed my niece and they just want to verify that she lives with me. I’m a first time filer so all of this is new to me.

    2013taxpayer : my refund was higher.. it was funny though I called yesterday when I received the letter monday evening and they could not find anything wrong with my return. I just played dumb and asked questions. Then when I told them about the letter they put me on hold and finally found the code.

    When I was with my CPA today on the conference call today on the line he called they answered the call in less than 2 minutes… asked for his ID information and mine and looked at everything we asked them to. The person we spoke with said the code is nothing to be alarmed and basically just holds the funds in case someone wants to look at the return. He was searching for a reason why the return would of been held and then he asked how much it was for and when I told him over $7000 he then said that was the reason due to the high dollar amount. Said I should still receive it within the 21 day time frame like WMR is stating from the 28th which for me would be 2/18.

    “I called my CPA and we conference called with the IRS Practioner Priority Services group in which they look up your return. I was flagged because of the size of the refund. He said nothing looks out of order just a code that slows up the return if someone wants to take a look at it hence the letter issued by the system.

    He says I started processing on the 28th even though the 25th was the acceptance date I received. He said the refund is still scheduled to be disbursed within the 21 day time frame and nothing to be alarmed about. He said this letter is just the systems way to slow up the process to allow additional time IF someone wants to take a look at it. If it goes beyond the 21 days then there will be another letter but NO manual review right now and no flags outside of this code. Hope that gives everyone a little hope.”

    @duece1911 Thank you so much for this helpful information!!! My refund is $3405, I’m wondering if I was flagged because that amount. Is your refund close to my amount?

    WMR is showing processing, should receive refund within 21 days still today. No error codes or anything. Still haven’t received any mail from the irs. I am starting to think the hold on my refund was caused by a system error. My hold is scheduled to be released 2/18.

    hackney2009 – Not sure but you would receive a letter stating you are being Audited if that was the case.

    Remember that if anyone is experiencing a financial hardship due to the delay of their refund they can call the Tax Advocate group which is a free service to represent you and expedite or if not expedite at least research your situation more as they will act as your liason with the IRS during the process of the review.

    The number is listed on the letter 4464c 1-877-777-4778

    i checked my papers and the deposit that i received came out to be the exact amount of my Federal

    Withholdings minus the fees HRB was supposed to take out. Does this mean im one of the lucky ones

    that is getting a real audit instead of it being a computer error?

    I have been under review since the 1st also but I am only able to order a account transcript and not the return transcript. I still get the processing and refund expected in 21 days. No error codes or anything and when I call I had to actually tell them I received the letter as the IRS agents told me everything looked fine with the return. The agent yesterday actually had to go look up the letter 4464c before he gave me the 6 to 8 week spill. Another agent told me he is supposed to say 6 to 8 weeks but it usually is alot faster than that time frame.

    I’ve been under review since the 1st but I was able to order my transcripts and I received a deposit from HRB for 200 bucks

    Yesterday, which is wayyy less than what my return is supposed to be, but now when I check their systems they don’t have any

    info about my return at all. It’s like I never even filed with

    Them. I’m still waiting for my letter but I really can’t imagine what would be wrong since I didn’t prepare them myself. I also can’t

    i filed & got accepted on 1/28th. since 1/30th as of now, i am showing as returned received & processing on wmr & the same on refund hotline. i have just received a 4464 c letter yesterday. i was told on here to not to worry if i got the letter and on wmr still shows as processing and not a specific error/irs ref code on the wmr. also was told along with my sis (the original owner of this username) earlier today on here to not to worry about it because they got their refund the same day they got their under review letter. she called irs about it and they told her that they have been getting quite a few calls about it but need not to worry because it was a glitch in the system that has been sending out letters. hopefully, that is the case.

    i also can’t order my return transcript but i can order my acct transcript.

    Hi Guys!
    Filed 01/17
    Accepted 01/24
    WMR gives the generic 21 day message

    BUT after reading the different forums and having friends that filed after me already get their taxes I decided to call. Took me 3 reps til I found out we were placed under review they didn’t state why other than it was for my protection. Like other people I claimed the Childcare Tax Credit and this is the only year that our return is different. My husband is still in the military but I worked 2 jobs and we moved so my kids went to 2 daycares. Was expecting a large amount upward of 15k. No offsets reported for either one of us and the rep I spoke to said they were mailing a letter but I don’t need to do anything and it can take up to 60 days…bleh! This has never ever happened and I’m a little nervous, scared and concerned. I will keep everyone posted.

    Filed with HRB and accepted on 1/30. Expecting a return of 4 grand

    Went into review a couple days later and was able to order transcripts yesterday.

    Before today HRB website could’nt find my return but now their website is saying i never even filed with them!

    WMR hotline still says I am under review.

    HRB hotline says my funds have been sent to my bank.

    Checked my bank account and it shows a deposit of 200 bucks from HRB..

    i filed 1/27 with taxact. was done processing on 1/31 and ordered the transcript. 2/4 wmr still showed 21 day processing message.

    called irs on 1/4. he said my refund is on hold til 1/18 but cant see why. he said that it isnt for debt. he said no letter has been sent out. he said if everything is ok by 2/18 my refund will deposit.

    called irs back on 2/6. lady says i an still on refund hold, give it til 1/18. she says no letter has been sent as of this date either.

    wmr still shows return processing.

    i assume its not an eic review because i havent got any refund of the taxes paid in, and irs says my entire refund is on hold.

    did anyone here see any other message besides “your return is being processed. you should get your refund within 21 days”?

    I’ve gotten a LTR 4464C letter that says my return is under review, and it might take up to 60 days to process. It said they may require additional information, but I don’t need to do anything yet. I used TT and filed on the 10th so my return was accepted quickly. The only problem is my return is delayed because of the Education Tax Credit delay until Feb 15th… From what I’ve read my return shouldn’t of been processed yet, and why I don’t understand why I even got a letter.

    Ok here is my situation. Got accepted on the 29, on the 1st got the dreadful msg Take action and I should receive a letter in the mail. On Sunday I had a deposit in my net spend card minus the EIC. So i called yesterday and talked to a very helpful rep. He said I should receive a letter in the mail stating that I have to prove that I have a right to claim for Eic. He didnt say when I will get the letter or how long it will take. Checked the mail and no letter yet. Really hoping it comes soon!

    I am getting all kinds of conflicting messages and dates from different and websites. WMR gives me this under review message, Irs2go says sent/deposited with no date or reference number, hotline gives me the WMR message, TurboTax says accepted, TurboTax mobile says it has been successfully acknowledged and you will receive your refund before 2/17 and mytaxrefund app says something else different. What a nightmare!

    i filed on 1/28 accepted 1/29 processing for 4 days then went to review. Called IRS today and after talking the rep into looking up my return she said still processing. Not sure if this is accurate or not. I do have a schedule C, Filed HOH, and claim my nephew same as I did last year because I am his legal guardian with a court order. i have filed with a schedule C and W2 for the last 8 years never an issue.

    Personally I have seen so many people comment on this review process I have no idea who is right, some say the review is generated by computer and may only cause a delay of a couple of days. Others say it can hold your refund for weeks or months.

    Who knows????

    Well I tried calling this morning and had absolutely no luck in finding out why I am under review. She just told me it’s too early to find out anything about my return. She wouldn’t even look up my info. Just told me to wait 3 weeks to see if my status updates. What the heck is the call center there for then if they can’t answer questions that are actually deemed important other than people calling trying to get a friggin’ DD date after filing hours ago! SMH. Hopefully something comes in the mail today. I don’t want this getting dragged out too long.
