  • SAGO7 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 9 hours, 57 minutes ago

    First time filing IS and we just received our transcript just needed help understanding-cycle 20170405 and it says as of March 27th 2017
    I read some posts that said 846 means refund was issued but that date was 03/06/17 and we still haven’t received anything? Thanks :)

  • Quick question. My wife owes social security they took my refund, keep in mind I do not live in a community property state so question is will I be able to get my refund back? Thanks

    • The State Franchise tax board is who gives you your state tax it’s separate from federal refunds

    • Famof5 yes Im aware they are separate…. I was just putting it out there. I’ve read from other ppl that they’ve received there state tax unfortunately in my case I didnt it was paid torwards the child-support

    • sorry i didn’t mean it towards you…earlier there was a comment from someone asking what the State franchise tax board was but I don’t see it on here anymore so they must of deleted it

    • No worries at all. But I’m still waiting for an update on my fed return :(

  • famof5 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 13 hours, 9 minutes ago

    I would assume 45 days is not business days but calendar days because their website states they issue refunds around 21 calendar days(for regular accounts) so I would think calendar days would be across the board but I’m not sure

    The last time that I posted……..I was explaining how some IRS reps will look further into your account and give you information and how some won’t and will tell you about the 11 week process, Hopfully some were able to get some good news.
    This was my first time filing IS, so I really didn’t know what to expect. My question is………has…[Read more]

    How do you check update on Injured Spouse?

    • All I’ve seen is to call in, I don’t think they have anything online or automated you can check. I may be wrong though

    • At about 8 weeks you can call and check to see if your case has been closed. You can check your transcripts online or have them mailed to you. On your transcripts you are looking for a 846 code which means your refund was released. They update tonight. So check them in the am!

    • I just checked and it shows they revived my IS fprm on 2/27 but doesnt show anuthing after that

    • How do you check your transcripts online?

    • You can check your transcript online but your mobile phone has to be in your name and it cannot be a prepaid phone :/ so you would have to request a pin be sent it takes 5-10 buisness days to receive on…..

    I filed for IS after my tax refund was already applied to a tax obligation of my ex husband. I applied 3/14, spoke with someone 3/17 who confirmed they received the forms but I was still not guaranteed to receive back my refund just because I had sent in the forms, that I was still liable for my ex husbands tax debt until it was paid in full. Is…[Read more]

    • What state do you live in? We filed is last year for my student loan debt and my husband was the sole income and he got back 100% of his refund but we do not live in a community property state.

    • I live in MS, I don’t think it’s a community property state

    • Every time is check WMR it only states that ” your refund has been applied to a past due tax obligation” that status hasn’t changed in weeks :(

    • I was told it may not update at all after that. Some do some don’t. Good luck on getting your refund back. Not fair to have to be responsible for your exs debt

    • I know! Do you know what it means when they say they will contact your ex spouse? Because I’m 100% sure if they ask him if I should be held responsible and pay for this debt instead of him, he will mark yes, because who wouldn’t want someone else paying their tax obligations? Lol
      I’m not sure how that works? What if he refuses to accept liability…[Read more]

    • All you can do is gather as much evidence stating you can’t be held liable for your ex spouses debt. Talk to some with the IRS see what info they would like. Had some thing like this happen to me years ago. I don’t remember all i needed but i do know i owe nothing for my ex’s debt

    • Ok, thank you

    • You might actually want to look into if you need the Injured Spouse or actually the Innocent Spouse form.

    • Was the debt incurred while you were married? If it was–then you will likely still be liable for it :(

    • I actually filed for innocent spouse, not injured spouse.

    I e filed our returns and the wmr site said the refund was applied to a debt. So I separately mailed in the IS form on feb 28. I’m not use to having to do so and absentmindedly forgot to include a copy of our w2. I just called and a very nice lady said They don’t need or require the w2 to be sent in anymore so that was a relief. She said they…[Read more]

    • I efiled both return and IS and was accepted 1/30. Mine has been in IS since 2/9. I called yesterday and was told no one has been assigned yet. So it’s been sitting there for WEEKS. 45 days will be 3/26.

    • Well that’s not very encouraging lol

    • They say to allow 8 weeks if you mail the form in separately. Last year IS received my form on 2/29 and I received a check exactly 8 weeks later. This year I was aware of the offset, mailed it in a few day after we filed electronically and it was rec’d 2/14 and I’ve had no updates yet. It seemed like they were moving along a bit faster this year,…[Read more]

    • Last year I received my check on the day of my 11th week. I was told by 2 reps its 45 days processing from when they receive it. My 45 days is up 3-27 and mine is still sitting however it was assigned 2-17. I’m not even sure the dates are accurate. My IS was received 2-10. WMR does not usually update at all. You should call every two weeks.

    • How is the 45 days calculated? By business days or the full week?

    • The IRS person I talked to last week told me if we mail the IS after e-filing it will be check that it is only DD if everything is done at the same time.

    Filed IS and was received on 2/7/2017, had code 846 with date of 3/20/17 and code 898 with date of 3/20/17… my soon to be ex has been in prison nearly 2 years with no income obviously. They are trying to take my refund for his back support from another relationship. This is my first time dealing with all of this. Do these codes mean they are t…[Read more]

    Just got off the phone with a Great rep from the IRS.. who dug around for me. Said a batch was delayed and is waiting final approval as of the 19th. Said the system would update this sun night and I should definitely call back mon morning for my DDD and Amount. Transcripts still show 570 without IS even listed.

    Hi this is my first time filing IS… I was wondering how long after you get your state did you get your federal. I got my state return today even though i just filed on the 6th of march. Also i got the full amount it was not split or anything is that normal?

    • We filed 8 weeks ago our case was closed last week. It should take about 2 weeks after your you close to get a DDD. Normal wait is 11weeks after you file however depending on type of offset and affiency people recieve it in as little as 8 weeks from file date

    • Also depends how you file it. If you mailed it in or elfiled it

    • is it normal to get state so soon i efiled just curious

    • I’ve filed IS for 3 years and I always get my state refund around 4-5 weeks after filing. It actually just showed up as a pending credit in my bank account this evening. I would think your state would only be slowed or taken if the debt was something that your state could take. My issue is back child support my husband owes and our state refund…[Read more]

    • @LM my husband owes back child support too, I was wondering if you know if the irs process that debt slower ? Because we efile since January and still nothing ..

    • @Jenny I could be wrong but there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to federal processing IS claims. They get done when they get done, which is why you have people who just filed getting refunds before those who filed as soon as the season started. The first year I found out about IS, I had filed online and mailed in the IS form after the…[Read more]

  • Kel8988 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 10 hours ago

    Question- if you are paying on your student loans should they still be offsetting your refund? I’ve set up an arrangement with the collection agency who took over my loan and been paying on it for almost 9 months yet they are still offsetting. I was hoping I wouldnt have to file IS this year but I did. My accountant said no matter if I’m paying…[Read more]

    • I would think that is a loophole because you are paying the collection agency directly and not the loan grantor. If you call the number that WMR gives you you should be able to get a phone number to directly speak with the department of education. Maybe try setting the payments up with them instead??

    • I helped my sister get her Treasury Offset Program cleared for her loan defaults. What happens is after the collection agency clears your 9th payment they send it back to US DEPt of ED. US Dept of ED sends you a letter saying that your in good graces again. U will be offset until you get this letter from DEPt of EDucation. any sooner and it will…[Read more]

    • From my understanding once any debt has gone to collection they contract has been cancelled and can be errased from your credit once you contact the 3 credit bureaus and file a dispute. I’m not sure if it can be done with Ca dept of education or government grants

    • That’s what is confusing because when I set up the arrangement with the collection agency, he told me as soon as I made the 1st payment, any kind of offsets or garnishments would stop. As we got ready to file, I called the offset number and it was the same saying an offset could occur. I called the collection agency and they said I could file…[Read more]

    • Also there is a direct deposit calender THEY ONLY DD ON THOSE DAYS AND THEY ONLY MAIL OUT CHECKS ON FRIDAYS calling isnt going to get anyone any special treatment our refunds go out when they do..we cant change that

  • Stacy C posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 16 hours ago

    Ugh. I’m gonna cry. Per my last convo with IRS, I followed up after 45 days of my form being sent to IS. I filed/accepted 1/30 and sent to IS 2/9. A very nice man took the time to check on things and said it was assigned but NO ONE HAS STARTED WORKING ON IT YET. I’m so frustrated seeing people who filed after we did getting refunds and knowing…[Read more]

    • Mine haven’t been looked at neither, I file 01/21 and IS received 02/09. Spoke to tax advocate and tried to do hardship. So they open claim and told they will speed up the process

    We filed our IS with our taxes electronically on Feb 1st and they were accepted on the 3rd of February and still no word. I did call someone and he was very nice and all he could tell me was that I would be receiving it DD not by check and that the IRS had done a check on my bank account and it had cleared and that was it, and the check on the…[Read more]

    • I filed with JH as well on 2/1 with IS and got accepted.
      Called on 3/6 and the nice lady said I would have to wait 11weeks from the initial date I filed. Saturday morning (3/18) out of curiosity I checked WMR and it updated to the 2nd bar Refund Approved and my DD on 3/22. Was amazed hopefully, my WF deposits tonight. I waited 6 weeks to the date…[Read more]

    • I’m crossing my fingers for you too! Let me know how it goes. Did your status bar ever go away and just say it’s being processed cause mine went away along time ago and haven’t had a status bar in weeks?

    • Once your case is closed it is sent to a different department the accounting Department they check for mistakes and check bank accounts and then approve a DDD. DDs usually hit accounts on Weds

  • famof5 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 13 hours ago

    I’m going crazy! I filled 2/18 accepted 2/18 as well, and haven’t heard nothing. Called the number , got the 11 weeks then call speech. I’m trying to access my transcripts online and I can’t so I requested them by mail. Anybody out there that has gotten accepted same time as me and heard anything or gotten a date yet? Me and hubby are in a…[Read more]

    • Call again act dumb I have the couple of times i have called. I asked if i was getting a check or dd that’s how i got the lady to look into my account. Call again. Never hurts to try again. Some just won’t go the extra mile to look into the account when its IS return

    • Yes, i filed 2/16. No movement except that the form has been received. FYI calling and speaking with reps only pulls that person away from processing the IS claims as the team who answers the phones are the same people who work the injured spouse claims. I waited 10 weeks and 5 days last year because i called and asked for an advocate. Never again.

    • I called again, they said I will get my dd. But that’s all he could tell me about my return. The guy I talked to was very very nice real difference from the lady I talked to!

    • Yall need to please stop calling let the irs do their job

    • I filed and was accepted on 2/17 and i’m still waiting. I did call on 3/10 and had my transcripts faxed but at the time it had yet to be assigned. I’m glad I called because apparently they had received notice back in 2013 of identity theft, from a company I had once worked for, and had flagged my account, She stated it could have caused problems…[Read more]

  • I called the WONDERFUL number posted by famof5 Call 1-800-829-0582 xt.652 and talked to a really nice guy.

    So here goes.

    I mailed my 8379 on 3/2
    They received it 3/7
    They are currently processing the form.
    They told me the wait to hear anything is 45 days from 3/7
    He even calculated it for me. I should see something in snail mail by 4/21
    If I…[Read more]

    • Funny thing every year we get the refund check in the mail then a few days later we get the letter saying we are going to be getting a check

    • That would be awesome to come home from a long day of work and worry about how to deal with a redirect refund and see the check I’ve been waiting for :)

    • Thats great news! Mine was also processed the same day 3/7! So hopefully that is some good news on my behalf as well!

    • I called this morning and was told similar information. This was my first time having to file the IS form. I mailed in the form after filing my taxes. I was told my IS form was received on 3/10 and that it would take 45 days to process. They calculated the date for me of 4/25 and if I didn’t receive refund by 4/25 to call back. So I am hoping that…[Read more]
