Filed on Jan 12th, accepted Jan.14th… Had one bar for about a week. Then on Jan 29th bars were gone and said “Still being processed, DDD will be sent when availble.” I heard some people say that means their under review. What does under review mean? Also, I heard some people say it doesn’t mean anything and got there DD shortly after. I checked this morning it says the same thing. Im almost positive last year I got my refund before bars moved. Just anxiety inducing, wondering g if anyone is in same boat or has more info.February 1, 2016 at 3:03 pm #4124284
I filed 1/29. Got receive bar the next morning. Haven not got approved yet. Is this normal? Will I get my refund on the 5th?February 1, 2016 at 3:00 pm #4124281
filed with tax act on 1/11 accepted 1/15 (I thought) WRONG, I thought the email that I was accept came from IRS no true TAXACT sent it to me.
I just got off the phone with IRS, a Mr. Nettle researched my return, come to find out the email I got showing I was accept by irs, is not from irs it is from TAXACT. So that could be out problem, come to find out IRS DIDNT received my income tax forms until days later per Mr. Nettle. He told me that there is nothing wrong with my return, it was accept from IRS days later. I went and tooked at the accepted letter and it is from TAXACT. Wow was I surprised. He did not give me a ddd date. so that could be other people problems. I was surprised. told me to call him back on a certain date if I don’t get approved this weekFebruary 1, 2016 at 3:00 pm #4124279

I filed on 01/25/2016 accepted on 01/25/2016. WMR has not updated to a DDD. I am not able to order transcripts either.

I keep hearing people say that deposits come in before WMR even updates but that has never been my experience. I suspect these people simply don’t check WMR daily.February 1, 2016 at 1:38 pm #4124195

My aunt work for the IRS been there for 20. Plus years she said even if the website saying no information found don’t mean nothing she said it might b approved and on its way to your bank but it might not show on the web site or the 800 number she the IRS is entering millions of information in the computer at one time so its not updating fast enoughFebruary 1, 2016 at 12:53 pm #4124136

windford? I don’t remember if that’s what ur name is lol what state are u in? and how did you file?February 1, 2016 at 12:34 pm #4124118
@ Kim most people that filed the 19th through the 30th of the month are now just getting ddds of the 3rd or haven’t gotten ddd’s but have a pending deposit of the money in their bank . you should get your no later then the 5th hun. that’s gonna be the closest deposit date by the 21st day but you will prob be the 3rd as long as all ur tax info was correct and u don’t owe moneyinto taxes.February 1, 2016 at 12:32 pm #4124112
Everyone read the comments people that filed on the 15th are now just getting ddds …. for the 3rd some got the 29th the rest us in jan are gonna be the 5th im telling you they always wait until the last of the month to start updating and sending out refunds. now its gonna been hit the ground running because they will doi everyone at the end of jan in bulk I bet you 10 to 1 that all of us that are waiting on a ddd might not even get one and we end up getting calls on the 5th of deposits by the 6th. or even the 3rd.February 1, 2016 at 12:25 pm #4124109
My husband and I filed joint on Jan. 29 and have a DDD of Feb 3…the app and the where’s my refund tool updates after the fact for some reason. I know several friends that their status say refund approved and already have their refund in hand. So I wouldn’t worry to much about where you stand on the app you will probably get your refund before it updates.February 1, 2016 at 11:59 am #4124085
@ Mike I was the 27th and got approved on the 27th 20 minutes after they sent it in. Im in ohio and I still have no ddd but last year I filed on the 30th and had my money on the 6th deposited which means they sent it the 5th my bars never moved until the 8th so maybe we will all get some good news soon hopefully……February 1, 2016 at 11:54 am #4124075
Okay so I talked to my tax place , and the people that were suppose to be the 29 or the 30th are probably being pushed to the 3rd then the second back of people are being pushed to the 5th or the 10th which is 2nd wed of the month but you guys remember that wmr never updated for a lot of people last year and they got their money before it updated because they can only update so many at a time and there are some many people that people get pushed aside when it comes to updating them. Im in ohio I filed the 27th with liberty tax I have been filing with them for 6 years and I was accepted on the 27th so 21 days from that is the 17th now I don’t think its gonna take that long I think think with so many filing early this year and the new software the people that filed early are waiting longer because of the lack of funds to have more people on staff. Im hoping right along with you guys that my refund gets here by the 5th because I am in need of it so bad but people that have filed on the 19th your 21 days are up on the 9th so you money should be available by the 5th. Unless there was something wrong with your taxes but not always sometimes it takes longer then 21 days if it required more processing. its a stressful situation I know. I wish we could call up there and say its our money we want it now. but that’s not how our government works they are slow and they don’t care if its our money. I know a lot of people that have filed on the 24th that have gotten a ddd of the 3rd so im not sure what that is suppose to mean but im pretty sure they don’t update that thing 1 time a day I think maybe once a week and that’s why people are getting there money before there bars even move. but if anyone filed in ohio please let me know if you have gotten a ddd yet im curious to see if anyone in ohio has gotten their money or have gotten there ddd yet. we are all playing the waiting game and im sure the irs is just laughing but it will come I think we will all get very good news by the 5th Hang in there guys its always your 21st dayFebruary 1, 2016 at 11:47 am #4124067
Filed on the 28th of Jan accepted same day. Wmr site says no information the it had tax topic 152. Few days ago o think had tax topic 151 and 152. Anyone accepted ontge 28th and got a ddd yetFebruary 1, 2016 at 10:38 am #4123989
Filed and approved on 1/19. Still one bar as of this morning…..no DDD. Last year went alot quicker! I don’t remember waiting this long. I’m starting to worry, nothing has changed for me either, same job, only 1 child…..same address. I just don’t understand! :(February 1, 2016 at 9:55 am #4123947
Okay I filed 1-19-2016
And was accepted the same day 1-19-2016
I still only have 1 wmr bar I filed threw free tax USA I been filing with them for 5 years but this is the 1s time in one week that my at hasnt change should I be worriedFebruary 1, 2016 at 9:19 am #4123919
I filed on the 19 got accepted on the 19 and still only one bar so how are they gone to give anyone their money by the 3rd or the 5th.February 1, 2016 at 9:11 am #4123913
My sister filed on the 17th and was accepted the 19th and still only has one bar, and cant order transcripts because it says information is wrong.
I filed on the 22nd and still nothing, also cant order transcripts but it just says they aren’t available.
My mother filed on the 20th and it took away her bars last week and says its processing, no transcripts or anything available.
I know that they have their hands full, but I have never waited this long to hear something about my returns and it is frustrating. I would like to know about the extra processing process, though. Should my mom call them? She doesn’t want to but if its necessary then I guess she will have to… *shrug*February 1, 2016 at 8:40 am #4123873
I filed in 1/26/2016 and it was accepted the same day. Still no DDD. Grrrrr. I filed with a CPA firm. Has anyone who filed around that time been approved yet? I can order an account transcript but not the return. Does the transcript upload throughout the day or just over night like WMR?February 1, 2016 at 7:45 am #4123826
I dont think it really matters the amount one gets. I am usually at 8k every year never had a problem. Last year I got my return in the bank before WMR updated….I filed 1/18 accepted 1/19 still one bar.February 1, 2016 at 7:01 am #4123803
@ Sue.. I used TacAct.. Filed 1/15.. Accepted 1/19.. Still ONE BAR on WMR this mornng.. Buh… Such bsFebruary 1, 2016 at 6:59 am #4123801
@sue – Multiple ppl that used H&R Block have been accepted and DDD made available for them. I’ve personally seen at least three. Two filed early like yourself and one later on. They all got paid last friday. I don’t think it has anything to do with H&R block at this point, I think its all the IRS right now..February 1, 2016 at 6:51 am #4123796
I woke up this morning with one bar stillFebruary 1, 2016 at 6:50 am #4123795
It seems that most of you did not use H and R Block. Does anyone know if the no DDD and one bar still on WMR has anything to do with H and R Block? I filed 1/7/2016 and accepted 1/19/2016. Still no movement and cannot order return transcript. I had my return 2/9/2015 last year and had it in the bank on 2/17/2015. Is it just me or does it seem the ones who filed later are getting their returns first? Any answers would be great.February 1, 2016 at 5:52 am #4123776
Anyone wake up to a DDD? I’m still at the one bar of DOOM :(February 1, 2016 at 4:20 am #4123758
Someone in another thread said she got a surprise deposit and that he wmr never updated for her so theres still hope for those of us who don’t have DDD’s yetFebruary 1, 2016 at 3:59 am #4123754
I filed with H and R Block, I was accepted on 1/19, I have a DDD of 2/3, as of right now I have a pending deposit in my account!February 1, 2016 at 1:33 am #4123712
I filed as HOH and had EIC. I’m also expecting over 8k .. I thought that could be the reason why its taking so long but seeing as others have been approved maybe not.. IDK.. This is the most I’ve ever gotten back, usually its around 6k, so I’m wondering if they’re looking a little closer because of that.. I filed with H&R Block, and I heard they’re having lots of issues this year. Any one else with H&R block with a DDD?February 1, 2016 at 12:19 am #4123667
My federal is over 8k and I’m wondering if that’s why its delayed

9001 is not an audit code if you use a ss number on your return for one of your dependents to check know status that is the code that will show. Make sure u r using the right ss number if you are call the irs right away as some one may have claimed u or worse I’d theft. Just search Google and u will get the answer. Hope this helpedJanuary 30, 2016 at 10:53 pm #4122236
@megan How do you know it is an audit code? Been trying to find out info all day on it, people saying a few different things, but your the first to say audit. Getting nervous :( Any insight would help. TYJanuary 30, 2016 at 9:56 pm #4122205
@nikki code 9001 is an audit code. Hope you get it figured out soon.January 30, 2016 at 9:31 pm #4122195

GeorgiaJanuary 30, 2016 at 9:12 pm #4122181
I was able to order my tax transcripts yesterday, Jan. 29. Today I looked at WMR and is shows the following: Your Personal Tax Data Social Security Number or IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number: ***-**-**** Filing Status: Head of Household Your Expected Refund Amount: ******** Refund Status Results Print. Take the survey. Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available. Please Note: For refund information, please continue to check here, or use our free mobile app, IRS2Go. Updates to refund status are made no more than once a day.”
I was told today by a tax professional since I was able to order both 2015 transcripts yesterday my refund was approved and it should update soon. Thoughts?January 30, 2016 at 8:57 pm #4122176
DDD: direct deposit scheduled for 02/03/2016
Hope this will help some anxious ones out there.

I have been checking WMR twice a day since the 20th and have seen no movent at all ..checked lastnight 01/29 a little after 1:30 am and still no movement ..checked this morning around 8:30 and had 2 bars with a DDD of 02/03/16 ..HOPE THIS HELPSJanuary 30, 2016 at 7:11 pm #4122102
Tried to order on trans. on IRS site.. It said nformation doesn’t match records.. But I checked and my info matched what i entered on the site. Called.. The recording said sorry unable to process your request.. please check your records and try to order online..
One bar and generic topic 152
Any ideas on what to ? Thanks!January 30, 2016 at 7:10 pm #4122101
@ladi, you’re going to need to do more than pray. Once a refund is approved, it’s at least 5 days for the deposit. You will NOT have it by Tuesday.January 30, 2016 at 7:06 pm #4122098
I’m praying for new status in the morning I claim in the name of Jesus my refund will be approved by morning and n my bank account by Tuesday God is Good
Amen keep faith everyone everything is going to fall n place He knows Your needs he will never put nothing on you that u can’t handle Amen..January 30, 2016 at 6:59 pm #4122087
I filed 1/23/16
DDD None tax topic still the same 1 bar
No movement expecting delays but it looks like pple who filed the same day has received their approval and DDD .
Filed the same way last year and got my refund in 5 days not understanding what’s the hold up maybe the amount differsJanuary 30, 2016 at 6:58 pm #4122086
@Adria, that’s the dumbest question I have ever seen on this forum. It’s not the IRS that pays you, it’s the treasury. They release the funds on the date they state on your WMR, it’s up to your bank as far as when the funds actually post. OMG.January 30, 2016 at 6:57 pm #4122085
and that long post was for OHIO EST TIME and Went to Liberty Tax Been going there for almost 7 years now and also they told me 2/5/16 too and I trust them they are always dead onJanuary 30, 2016 at 6:54 pm #4122082
I filed Head Of HouseHold Jan 27th 2016 at 10:10am
They Irs Gave me One Bar Before Jan 29th at 7am in the morning
As of today 1/30/16 I still only have 1 bar
Last years tax return went like this
Got my return 2\6\2015
Then my approval came in 2\8\2015 with a ddd of 2\8\2015
I know a lot of sites are saying if you filed before the 19th that ddd’s are going to be 1\29\16 2\3\16 and the other half on 2\5\16 People that filed & irs got them between the 19th and 29th of jan. DDD is 2\5\15 I don’t know if this helps anyone im hoping I get mine soon because I have to move closer to family and start looking for a job down there im hoping to see a update between tomorrow morning and Monday morning to be honest. but I think the delays are because so many people filed so early and they were still working out the kinks of the new system and being low staffed due to funds. Congrats to the people with ddd’s of 2\3\16 wish I was right there with ya I really need ours… the only thing that has changed in my refund is my address I moved into a new house in the same town with same zipcode right down the street and my job . so heres hoping and praying my ddd will be the 5th of feb or before Pray for us all.January 30, 2016 at 5:53 pm #4122041

Found this for those that received a stand still on there WMR, maybe you should try this (fyi I’ve already been approved just want to possibly helps those that received a we still need more info message via WMR)…hope maybe this will help, good luck!
FOUND IN A FORUM ON GOOGLE:
So… I called 800-830-5084 and was told that my refund was on hold due to an ID Theft Indicator. He took the time to review my account to see what was the delay. He verified my ID based on questions my tax history (note I did this almost two weeks ago as well) He advised he will be releasing the return as of today and that could take up to 6 additional weeks. What bothers me is that this should have been done two weeks ago when I called and talked with IDPU and they verified my ID… smh So if you are stuck on processing call them and let them clear it upJanuary 30, 2016 at 12:32 pm #4120313

Man this is driving me crazy.
Still not approved. I was able to order my return transcript yesterday and I called the offset line and confirmed that I had no offsets. I feel like the IRS is toying with me at this point. The only reason I can thing this is taking so long is because I filed as self-employed for 2015. I only took the standard deduction so they would have no reason to hold me up for an audit.January 30, 2016 at 7:48 am #4119959

Only 1 bar on WMR, still can’t order transcript as of 5 mins. ago.
It is frustrating but, I am noticing that the ones that filed earlier then myself are just now getting approved, so there must have been a delay of some sort. Hoping by Monday there will be an update.January 30, 2016 at 7:09 am #4119923
DDD 2/5 !!
I was able to order transcripts 1/29 – I think it is directly related despite what others have reported.
My SSN .. last four, first number is 9. Not sure if that is why I am 2/3 instead of 1/29. ?? Anyways, it does happen, thank goodness.January 30, 2016 at 6:38 am #4119906

I have an approval and refund ddd of 2/3/16…my refund was also reduced…I suppose that was the issue that my bar went away. But what I don’t understand is that the code is 9021 stating a mathmatical error…INCORRCT…now I have to wait til Monday and probably hold for 2 hours to figure out why the IRS deducted $1485.70 from my refund!January 30, 2016 at 4:22 am #4119810

You’re right! I filed and return accepted 1/23. Was able to order transcripts on 1/29. Called offset number you listed and I had an offset of $400 for state taxes. The system said this offset for the “irs payment” dated 2/3. So that must be the date of my dd.
However!, wmr still shoes 1 bar as processing.January 29, 2016 at 11:36 pm #4119592
I JUST DONT GET SO MANY PEOPLE ON HERE SAYING WMR HASN’T CHANGE ITS LIKE WE ALL STUCK THE RETURN RECIEVED AND BEING PROCESSED I WAS ACCEPTED 1/22/16 AND ITS NOW 1/29/16 I EVEN HAVE AN EXPECTED DATE ON MY H&R BLOCK PAGE IS THISWHEN MY 21 DAY IS UPJanuary 29, 2016 at 10:36 pm #4119540

Just got off the phone with IRS, they said that wmr is updated daily. She couldn’t tell me what time it updates, but anything can happen any day, just keep checking. Hope this helps.

U say there have been “movement” for some people…I’m not talking about transcripts I’m talking about WMR..I haven’t seen one person say WMR updated and gave them a date..I could be wrong but we’ll find out soon enough but im guessing we wont see it move til wednesday regardless of when transcripts become available, I even read it on turbotax site that you dont need to check WMR daily as it only updates WednesdayJanuary 29, 2016 at 5:05 pm #4119310
Super Frustrated???January 29, 2016 at 4:47 pm #4119304
can you not download transcripts online this year? all i can find is by mail. i know i downloaded pdf file last yearJanuary 29, 2016 at 4:45 pm #4119300
By the way i filed and was accepted 01/22January 29, 2016 at 4:44 pm #4119299
I called the offset line 800-304-3107 to check on a 200 offset i got for this return, and it informed me that my offset was applied to my IRS Payment dated Feb 03, 2016, so im guessing thats when i should be receiving my DD (maybe even Feb 2 since my bank posts a day early). For those with an offset, this just might be a nice way to get around waiting for your WMR for a deposit dateJanuary 29, 2016 at 4:13 pm #4119277
Unless they changed things from last year, which we have already seen they have changed a few things, updates occur more frequently than just Wednesdays. That is why the system is unavailable from 3am-6am. I filed on Saturday 1/31 last year, received my DDD for Monday 2/8 (it hit my bank Friday 2/6 though).
Last year the weekly and daily thing did play a significant role in processing and posting. Since we can no longer see our transcripts online, it’s hard to say if people are on a weekly or daily schedule.
There has been movement for people (this is gleaned from transcripts becoming available) today. So tomorrow there could be an update, which just from transcript availablitu dispels the Wednesday only theory.January 29, 2016 at 3:58 pm #4119272
Me and my Fiancée both filed 1/19 and were accepted 1/19. Both of us filed with TT, Both of us claimed Head of Household (her with her son, me with mine), Both of our last names start with M, Both of us have not seen a single update, movement, nothing!! No refunds, no DDD, no change on WMR.. I don’t know WTF is going on, I am pretty patient and understanding when it comes to this kind of stuff, but it has NEVER taken this long before for me to get my refund and DEFINITELY NEVER this long for a WMR update. We have filed the same every, single, year and we ALWAYS get updated on WMR before this and always get our refunds before this. Neither of us has offsets, neither of us should have ANY problems with our returns, yet we still have seen NOTHING. So don’t worry, you’re not alone and the IRS is just taking its sweet time this year.. I guess we will see what happens tomorrow and Monday, if I don’t have an update by then, I am gonna freak out. lol. Impatiently waiting….. I want my money.January 29, 2016 at 3:46 pm #4119261
Well, I filed on 1/15 as head of household and still havent received anything (and still on one bar) so…January 29, 2016 at 3:32 pm #4119241
Sorry… Email also stats ill receive it between 1/28 and feb/17.. Filed thru turbo taxJanuary 29, 2016 at 3:32 pm #4119240
I agree! I think it’s just Wednesdats for updates and Friday’s for DDD! Last two years, funds were released in Friday’s both times. So maybe next Friday will be a DDD for most peopleJanuary 29, 2016 at 3:31 pm #4119239
Got an email saying it was accepted 1/29/2016
WMR and irs website still says its processing… Any ideas?January 29, 2016 at 2:46 pm #4119211
I don’t care what they say about WMR updating every night. I just find it hard to believe it updates every night but nobody got a DDD except for on Wednesday. I willing to bet that it only updates on Wednesdays for DDD’s on Fridays and they just tell us it updates every night. I have not seen one person say they were approved with a DDD since WednesdayJanuary 29, 2016 at 2:22 pm #4119198
I filed Head of Household! And so did my boss! Not only did she get accepted after me, she also got her refund this morning!January 29, 2016 at 2:17 pm #4119190
Hello everyone I think the irs is only paying people who filled head of house hold for now… Maybe they are paying alphabeticallyJanuary 29, 2016 at 2:13 pm #4119189
In the past I got my refund within 9 days! But I filed after tax season officially opened. This is the first year I filed before it began. I wonder if early filers are being penalized or flagged for review and that’s why it’s taking longer..January 29, 2016 at 1:24 pm #4119148
I filed 1/19 with H&R block, I was accepted 1/21. Still only 1 Bar on WMR. Usually I’ll have my money by now, I’m not sure why it’s taking so long. Also, I tried to order transcripts and they’re unavailableJanuary 29, 2016 at 1:23 pm #4119146
To my understanding the transcript that is the make or break is the return transcript. The account transcript means nothing really. But to go from not being able to order one then being able to order one seems like a pretty nice step in the right direction to me. I read on the turbo tax form that one lady was able to order her account transcript but not her return transcript this morning and as of one hour ago she was able to order her return transcript and has A direct deposit date. So what we are looking for is the ability to order the return transcript.January 29, 2016 at 1:16 pm #4119138
Just read online on the Irs website that being able to order a transcript means nothing :(January 29, 2016 at 1:04 pm #4119133

I filed on the 8th got accepted on the 11th and I’m still at one bar no ddd at all but today it let me order my 2015 return so hopefully I get my money soon I think it’s been processed already cuz it’s updated address and all keeping fingers crossedJanuary 29, 2016 at 11:53 am #4119053

I am in Texas, Filed on 1/17 and accepted early morning 1/19. I am still on bar 1! I feel like I remember last year receiving my refund before it updated on the WMR site? Has anyone else had this experience? Could the IRS site be backed up with it being the first few days of refunds being pushed out? Wishful thinking :)January 29, 2016 at 8:14 am #4118796
Does anyone know when we find our cycle number at
