Injured Spouse

    Who do they make the check out to? Just me?

    • Should be you but I believe there’s a section on the Injured Spouse form that you are supposed to tell them who to cut the check. I always request mine to be sent just to me.

  • Tracy Jackson posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 15 hours, 19 minutes ago

    I called about my return, again, today. They transferred me to the injured spouse department with a Pin code. That’s the first time I have been transferred. This gentleman told me my check was mailed, not DD, on 6/26. Finally, some relief. I won’t believe it until it is in my hands though.
    My timeline:
    Mailed IS 3/8/17
    IS received 3/20/17
    NO…[Read more]

    • Wow! I always heard checks were only mailed on Fridays! Hmmmm! You’re lucky!!!

    • I certainly don’t feel so lucky after waiting 4 months LOL. What really made me mad was that it was only supposed to take 8 weeks. And there’s absolutely no way to check the status without calling and being place on hold for a rep for 30min to an hour. This entire process has been infuriating! Thank God it’s about over. I think mine was mailed on…[Read more]

    • Oh trust me I understand! I have waited a total of 15 weeks and I AM STILL WAITING! I have called every week since my IS form was received and I keep getting different answers. As of now I am told my check will be mailed on 6/30, but we will see!

    • Did you efile (date?) your return and then mail in the IS form?

    • Yes, original return was efiled. Mailed the IS form (can’t efile it by itself)

    What does it mean when they say they made an adjustment on my account of x amount?

    • Anybody knows what this means???

    • I’m going to take a guess that it means they had to make an adjustment, change something due to an offset. New calculations done to determine how much comes back to you. Also means it’s being worked on instead of on hold.

  • Tracy Jackson posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 22 hours, 45 minutes ago

    AAGH! It has been over 14 weeks now since I have filed (IRS accepted my injured spouse form 3/20). This has been an absolute nightmare. I called last Friday and they told me that my case had been closed and I am receiving all of the money plus $73 in interest back. I called Monday because I forgot to ask if it was DD or mailed, and they told me it…[Read more]

    Yah!!! the wait is over, just got it DD and it was early. What a nice perk, good luck to you all.

  • Anniee75 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 13 hours ago

    Of those with the June 30th refund date what date was your IS accepted?

    • Here’s my timeline I’m beyond frustrated
      Received 4/24
      Assigned 5/25
      6/8 TA assigned and I was told I would know something 6/21
      6/21 told by TA call for update 6/26 or 6/27. Have left message for TA but nothing. No WMR update. Last transcript update was 6/5 to show the IS received. Today I emailed state representatives and congress people. This…[Read more]

    • 4/26

    • 3/17 IS received
      8 weeks later referral put in
      31 days later was told check Amt and to wait two weeks.
      Two weeks passed, told to wait 1 more week. Being 6/30 for check Mail date! Total being 15 weeks. Check better be in my mail box Monday or Wednesday (Tuesday is July 4)

    • I was just told by the TA it is pending he doesn’t have an amount until it posts. He said about a week to process from pending what does this mean and does anyone have a time frame from here?

    • Mine was received on 3/7 but case closed on 4/8. It’s been almost 4 months!!! it’s been a long terrible process.

    • @Annie75, you can contact the general TA office they should provide you with some information, I was as well was not having any response from my TA agent (the one with my case assigned), but at the TA general office a representative told me the day was closed and also gave me the number for my TA agent manager, Although this manager did not call…[Read more]

    • I did call the main Dallas line and ask for my TA’s manager to please call me. I was able to speak to my TA today. He was quite rude and told me that it didn’t matter how long I’ve been waiting only how long hes had the case.
      I got a call from another lady (presumably his supervisor) a short time later and it was a whole different story.
      Her…[Read more]

  • Yvette24 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 21 hours ago

    IS Friends my wait is over…YAYYYY! finally WMR updated says that is in process, but most important TA agent called and said that my check will be mailed on the 30th. My case closed on the 8th and she has already told me that by the 30th will be an answer so TA works. I hope all of you get your funds soon. don’t give up keep calling, write to…[Read more]

    • Yay! Congratulations! My WMR has updated to processing as well! And was told check will mail on the 30th but as like you, not until I have the check in my hand will I be 100% assured!

    • I, too, just found out they are mailing my check out this Friday! 6/30. I’m ready for this to be over! What a nightmare. But, like you, I’ll be even happier when I SEE the check in hand!!!

    • Congrads!!! Mine was just DD at 5pm, 12hrs early…finally done.

    • So happy for you all!

  • Mary posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 18 hours ago

    Anyone file IS form separately and have where’s my refund updated to processing? If so, how long does it take? My transcripts say refund issued 6/30. Do you think I will get a DD on the 30th? Will my check be mailed on the 30th? In the past I’ve filed my IS at the same time I filed my taxes and where my refund has never updated. I would just…[Read more]

    • Mine says the same. The lady at the IRS told me that my WMR might not update, but that a check will be mailed on the 30

    • Mine has the same date. I haven’t received it yet, so my guess is that’s either when it’ll arrive or deposit, or when it gets mailed; I’ve seen people here report either way regarding that.

    • TA told me to call back on Friday. Smdh

  • Natalia posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 22 hours ago

    This is starting to get really annoying. I called last week and was told our case was closed the 19th and that were getting the full amount back. He said to give it 3 weeks to get the direct deposit. I called again today and this guy told me it’s still bieng worked on. I told him last week I was told it was closed, he goes Nope!

    • I agree. I’m not sure how people that didn’t even file their tax returns until March or April have received their refunds and people that filed in early February are still waiting.

    • Right! Its ridiculous.

    • What does your transcript say?

    • Don’t know yet. I’m supposed to get it by mail this week. Can’t look it up online.

    • “I’m not sure how people that didn’t even file their tax returns until March or April have received their refunds and people that filed in early February are still waiting.”

      Looking at past years when the IRS had problems with issuing refunds, there’s s few cases where they had either computer “glitches” or some other problem; typically unr…[Read more]

    • It would be nice just to get a straight forward answer. And not people telling you different things Everytime you call. Because I called again and the lady told me the case is closed but nothing has updated in their system. I’m just confused at this point.

    • I’m still confused by the whole we haven’t updated yet. Or, their systems haven’t been updated yet. How is this possible. Especially with a TA. They are the updater. They are the ones working the case. I’m so lost on this process. I want to just give up, but I worked my ass off for that money and I’d like it back. Smdh.

    • Right! They have no problem taking the money when you owe them, but when it’s the other way around they take their sweet time. I’m ready for this to be over!

  • liz c. posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 23 hours ago

    Finally on wmr stated the refund will be DD on 6/28. I am so happy this process is now over. Everyone was right on here, a TA is always the best way to go if you can. Dont wait like they tell you, check every week. If you are like me and hate calling them, just go the transcript route. There is a article on kcrgtv9 news about the Federal…[Read more]

    • Hi how long did it take for TA to get your refund sent we also had been giving one and he never answer so ..we called his manager and she said from friday allow 7 days but we hqve been told so many dates its confussing we got letter date 6/5 to allow 3 weeks for check TA says it shouldnt be later tgan 7/10 but most likely 7/3 .. so how long did TA take

    • When I got the TA it toke them a week to even contact me but from there was about a week. Really I did everything already myself and then when I got TA there was progress. It was 8wks when I request TA and then 2wks after that until refund. Mine is getting DD but some do get a check which takes longer. I would go with what TA tells u.

  • Campbell posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 4 hours ago

    Anybody know why i got a152 code updated on wmr and then change back to 203?

    • Sounds like they are working on yours so that’s good. Any activity change on WMR is a plus. I think you will be in the next round of refunds going out. This week it looks like those with transcript account update for IS received 4/14ish are getting them now. There’s a possibility the 2nd IS you turned in will cause it to be delayed since they…[Read more]

    • Thank you. Nothing changes on my transcripts yet. Am kinda worried about the fact that wmr went to 203 offset code, but. I still have hope

  • Tesia posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 16 hours ago

    Our 8 week wait is up today. The lady I spoke with a couple weeks ago said if our money wasn’t deposited today or tomorrow to call back. I am calling monday if it isn’t on our account by tomorrow. What should my next steps be? I wasn’t told any information except that my form was recieved April 24th and to call back if money wasn’t recieved by…[Read more]

    • They will put in a referral that takes 30 days…. good luck! I hope you get your money so you don’t have to go through another 30 day wait! It sucks!!!

    • They got my is on 4/24 and they put me in a referral.

    • My IS was received 3/17. 8 weeks later they told me no one has worked it and will put in a referral and to wait 30 days. On day 31 I called and they told me to wait two more weeks. Two weeks was on the 23rd, I called and they said I should get my check in a week. That would be 15 weeks from the date my IS was received

    • My IS form was received 4/24 also. Still nothing here. They put me on a 30 day referral. Im hoping we get our check before the 30 days is up. But im not very hopeful with how long everyone has been waiting.

    • Our IS was received on 4/24 as well. I was told on phone last week and Tuesday this week that my case was closed on 6/7 but a date hadn’t been set yet. I’ve checked WMR site every day. Today it changed to received/pending status. As it had been in the “we took your money” status since 2/25.

    • Maybe you 4/24 folks will be seeing a refund this week. I’m going to guess Wed or Fri someone will have their DDeposit. Good luck to you all!

    • If the 4/24 people get it this week, what about the 3/17 people like me?! Uuggghh so irritating

    • I called the guy told me the payment was put in as a pending transaction this week and that it usually takes 1-2wks to process it then another 1-2wk for the payment to show up in my account, He said so in another 3-4wks I should have the $ if not to call back. Could anyone give me the prompts to push to get a real person the first time I call…[Read more]

  • Mary posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 5 days, 20 hours ago

    Finally the wait is hopefully almost over. IS spouse was received on 4/7. At my 45 days I called and of course no update so I got a TA. Spoke to the TA and she said I should get my refund by the 26th possibly sooner. Today finally an update on transcripts that refund issued 6/30. Today is 11 weeks exactly. I also called the offset line yesterday…[Read more]

    • That’s great and thanks for the update!

    • Was the TA accurate how long did it take

    • I don’t know to be honest. When I first spoke to her she reviewed my IS form, said it looked good, I should expect my refund on the 26th or possibly sooner. She would follow up with me in about 2 weeks and that she had over 100 cases she was working on. I never received a follow up call. I have her the benefit of the doubt since she had a lot of…[Read more]

  • Bgip posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 5 days, 23 hours ago

    My transcript now has two cycle codes, Anyone know why it would have two?

    • My guess is the 1st one was when they first processed your return and you had an offset. The 2nd one is for them re-doing your account after you sent in the IS form which was after the offset. Thats my guess.

    • Oh… well no, then my transcript has three cycle codes.

  • Natalia posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 days, 16 hours ago

    Just wondering if anyone can help. How soon after your injured spouse was closed did you receive the refund?

    • I’m not sure when my case closed, I have received 4 letters, in the past 4 weeks, all stating different amounts I would receive. I called the BFS yesterday at 800-826-9434 and they told me that my check has been sent out. They can tell you if a check or dd has been sent or if the IRS has released payment info to them.

    • Oh wow. Thanks for the info. I’ll give that number a call and see what they say.

    • I called Monday & they told me it closed on the 16th but no refund date yet but I was getting it all back and it would be 3-4 weeks. Today my transcripts say refund date of 6/30. So I’m hoping by 7/3 I have my check.

    • Oh that’s great! Mine closed on the 19th and they also told me I’m getting it all back and should see in about 3 weeks. Here hoping!

  • Timothy Ellison posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 days, 18 hours ago

    Filed form via Tax Act and included the 8379 IS with it and submitted it electronically on 02Feb17. Waited the full 11 weeks before calling to check on the status. When I finally called and got ahold of someone they told me that my case had still not been worked and that they would put in a referral. They said the referral would take 30 days and…[Read more]

    • It sounds to me like the IS funds will be released 7/3 to you.

    • I hope so…..I’m tired of calling these people at the IRS and getting different answers. It’s like they are all looking at different information on their screens and just blurting out whatever is in front of them. Some of them read back notes from a month ago and others read back things that happened last week. I’m not too sure why this is taking…[Read more]

  • liz c. posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 days, 23 hours ago

    We got a TA and was told would be assigned one by the latest 6/19. I’ve been calling them and no answer. What is the point, if we can’t get ahold of them. I’m going to try getting a hold of them again today. I just want this to b over.

    • I was in same situation and I called TA general number, spoke to an agent there, she game some information and she wrote that this agent was no communicating with me, next day TA agent called. Give it a shot, you never know whats going to work.

  • H Thompson posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week ago

    Well our 8 weeks was up monday 6/19.. according to them that wasn’t “their” 8 weeks. I was told the received on 4/24.. and 8 weeks from that is 6/19.. but i was told by 2 different people that it hasn’t been 8 weeks since it’s been in the hands of a worker who does the IS stuff.. but she put in our referral.. my husband is so upset that we now…[Read more]

    • Thats the same exact ting i was told my is was received on 4/24 so i got referral too cant do anything but wait.

    • Erica replied 1 week ago

      Mine was received 4/21 and it’s be 8 weeks 45 days. They put my referral in when I called on June 5th and called back yesterday and was assigned to someone on the 14th. Lady said I should receive my refund or letter by 7/14. If nothing by the 14th we are getting a TA.

    • Kay replied 1 week ago

      Don’t be so sure that if you had sent it to the right place to begin with you would have had it already… I sent mine in the end of Feb. accepted the beginning of March and I’m still waiting on mine. Was just told today it’ll be another 3- 5 weeks still!! This is unbelievable

    • I efiled on Jan 23, and submitted my is form with my taxes and I still have not received a refund. I have received 4 letters from irs, all stating different amounts I would receive and all of them stats I will receive a refund in 2-4 weeks. But I haven’t received it yet.

    • I had a referral done on the 19th. Lets see if this gets us anywhere, im not very hopeful that we’ll get our check before then, but you never know. I’ll probably continue to call weekly to get an update. I’ve been attempting to sign my husband up to do online tax transcripts, because in the mail just takes too long. Being that our phone bill is in…[Read more]

  • Marcell Davis posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week ago

    Anyone had a check mailed 6/16 and received it yet? Particularly if you reside in Michigan? Apparently my check was mailed on 6/16 and I still have not received it yet. Amount was too large for DD.

  • Bgip posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week ago

    When I called the TOP line today it now says I have one offset and one debt. But before it said just one offset. Does anyone know what that means and if it plays a valuable role in getting my money??!

    • This means they took the debt and something is still owed.

    • Bgip replied 1 week ago

      We have been making monthly payments so I know that something is still owed. I don’t even understand why anything was taken in the first place. I guess my question is, since my IS form has been approved and my case is closed, and I know the Amt I’m getting back… why does it still say the full amt that they took as an offset? Shouldn’t it be the…[Read more]

    • This is exactly what I’m going through. Better call it’s. The issue I had was they inputted something wrong and I’ve been in this battle since March. I’m still in the fight with a TA. Not saying we’re the same but I received a letter of approval with amount in April and then nothing. Called irs and things were all kinds of chaos. Like I said.…[Read more]
