Group for users who filed Injured Spouse Form 8379
The injured spouse on a jointly filed tax return files this form to get back their share of the joint refund when the joint overpayment is applied to a past-due obligation of the other spouse.
Just check my transcripts and got a update with code 846 dated 7/21/17 and 766 with a little interest. Thank God its almost over.
Hello! Just yesterday, Friday, I got an update on my transcript with codes 766, 290, and 971. It looks like you got those same codes and then shortly after you got the vaunted 846 code. (Swear I’m not stalking you, was just looking for others in same situation as me) Have you received your check yet? Hoping you did, this process is a pain in the neck!
Ok, so I efiled on April 15th. Yeah, I waited last minute, because I knew the injured spouse process would take forever anyway, and I was busy, so I waited a long time. I e-filed injured spouse with it because I knew my wife was going to be offset.
I was told July 10th was my 11 week mark, so I called then, and they said my case was close and to…[Read more]
Mines is coming from kansas maybe tommorrow
My check will be here today!!! Woot! I just saw it in my daily mail emails from the USPS. Finally the wait is over. Thanks all for your help!!
I e-filed and mailed IS by itself, I keep checking online transcript but nothing updated, mailed in about 3 weeks ago. Do they update the transcript once they receive my IS? Or just after they process everything?
It might take 4 weeks or more sometime less. Mine take abt a month be4 it updated.
Took 8 weeks after I mailed my IS form in for anything to change on my transcript
It took them eight weeks for them just to receive yours? Or did everything go through and then they updated the transcript? Everything I’ve read leads me to think that the transcripts and wmr never update. Just my observation, could be completely wrong.
Checked mailed 7/10/2017 … how long til i see it in mailbox
So was mine. Hoping I get it tomorrow or Thursday!
Let me know if it comes in i let you know around 11
Ok mine gets here around 11
First class mail takes 2 days to get from pa to florida
They told you it was coming from PA? They told me it could come from PA, california, Kansas City or Texas. I’m in Colorado
My check is here finally!!!!!! mail monday arrive today
Yey! Congrats! Oh I hope mine gets here today.
Party party party thank god a blessing for you happy for you lets keep counting them
I hope mine shows up today. I’m in Michigan near Detroit, so you never know. I’ll keep you guys posted. Mail comes around 2 P.M.
Did not arrive in mail today!!! Super boooooo
How do you know when your check was mailed? According to my transcript, Code 846 Refund issued Date 07-10-2017 and Code 776 Interest credited to your account 07-17-2017 so I’m not sure which date 07-10-2017 or 07-17-2017.
Call this number 8008269434, they will tell you the exact date your check was or will be sent.
I knew because my where’s my refund actually updated for the first time.
Thanks so much Natalia! I called the 800 # you gave me and the agent said my check was mailed Monday 07/10/17 so it seems like I’m waiting with a lot of the rest of you hoping it comes today.
No problem! Keep us posted on when you get yours!
Well no check for me today. Hopefully tomorrow!
Any luck hjs or natalia
It didn’t come yesterday. I’m getting ready to leave work shortly and typically the mail is delivered by the time I get home so hoping it’s there today.
Mine came today:) Really hope everyone gets theirs tomorrow!
well today has been 11 weeks so far. only 8 more days left of our 30 day referral and still no change to the transcript online. still says IS form received 4/24.. this is so tiring. i have a feeling we’ll be needing a TA since i guess that’s the next step.. they informed me at the time they put in the referral that they don’t like for it to go…[Read more]
I’m in the same boat. Mine was received 4/21. Referral put it June 5th. Then called back and they said someone was assigned to it on June 14th. Said I would get my refund 7/14. Called back still nothing. Called July 5th and said no one put a referral in that it will be put in that day. Should receive by no later than August 5th. About to get a TA.…[Read more]
So what happens when the 30 day referral is up but you have no hardship? We definitely need the money, ASAP but we aren’t at a hardship, barely staying above water with the bills/rent. Does that mean they’ll do another referral or do they HAVE to give you a TA no matter what?
Tell me about it. I also don’t have a hardship but close and barely skating by know we are due this money. Idk after the 30 days they should give one automatically. This is my first year and all new to this.
I sent my IS on the 4/15 but they it was received on 4/24 and i got an update on my transcripts on Friday i got a 766 code a 290 and 971, so maybe something might changes soon. My cousin file from feb and just receiving the same code as me
Nope, mine still says the same thing.. Last code was for the IS received on 4/24.. such a shame we’re all still dealing with this crap. When it comes to you owing them, they want it asap.. But they play games when they owe us. Last time I called the lady told me the referral can take anywhere from 30 to 45 days. Seems like every time you call you…[Read more]
I got referral in the same time as u and call a week later and the gentleman was kinda rude so promise myself i wont call bck he was telling me the same thing to call back on July 19 becuz it take up to 30 days. I was surprised wen i saw my transcripts updated last Friday so keep ur fingers cross
After my 30 days my check was mailed two weeks later and I got it the Monday after it was mailed
Well it has been almost 20 weeks now. I got a call from a TA 2 weeks ago saying it would be released on 7/3. A couple days later we both got a letter from the IRS dated for 7/10. Our transcript is giving a release date of 7/10. With the interest date as 7/17. Keeping fingers crossed we will have it soon!
Do they give u the interest amount on your transcript because my is about the same 20 weeks but I’m not seeing any interest and I don’t have a release date yet what your transcripts codes
There is an interest amount. It isn’t very much, but still more than the original. The refund issue date is 7/10. The interest date is 7/17.
My codes are 846 and 776 on the second page of my transcript.
@momx2 got my transcript today an I have the exact same dates and codes. Smh. I hope it’s released today and not the 17th. Even with TA saying the tenth. I’m exhausted from this journey.
My refund is pending in my bank and it’s released date is July 12th! Never received a notice nor did WMR update.
My most recent Account transcript received last week via mail:
Cycle 20172005……..Date 06-05-2017…..
I mailed my return with Injured spouse 4/18.
570 code for additional action pending 6/5
971 Injured spouse received 5/18
So I e-filed on April 18th. I keep checking the Where’s my refund status on the irs.gov site and it says the same things…..still being processed. How long is this taking everyone to get their refunds???? It was just 11 weeks as of a few days ago. Last year we had to do this same form, but lost track of how long it took because we assumed we were…[Read more]
Your best bet is to call if you want to know any info. Where’s my refund may not even update. Last year it never updated for me. If you call (800) 829-0582 ext. 652 early in the morning they pick up pretty quickly.
Thanks Natalia, i called the number you gave me. They said that someone is working on it and to call back on Monday for an update. Hope that is a good sign!
No worries! I hope you don’t have to wait much longer!
My IS shoes recieved 5/15/17…..and recently it’s showing on my transcript code 290 (tax assessed) with a cycle of 20172605 and a date of 7/17/2017…..following that for 7/17/17 I also show a 971 code saying notice issued.
I have not called yet because of the long wait times. But does anyone know what that means. Also seeing a credit to my…[Read more]
OMG it arrive!!!! Thank you so much for all the information, you guys rock! I learn so much and all this information help me speed and do accurate steps with this hard process. Hope everyone get their refund fast. Hint: Use your representative, they work!
IT CAME! IT CAME! My wait is finally over!!! After 16 LONG weeks, my check arrived today after it was mailed on 6/30! Best wishes to you all! Hopefully your wait is soon over!
I called today and the IRS rep said its policy that they can not look into my account until 14weeks has passed. Even though I told her someone looked up my account 2wks ago and they told me to call back today.
I sent everything in by mail 4/18
They are just so rude I’m not even going to try again this week .
Yea sometime you just have to call back and hope.you get someone nice and helpful. I had this happen before. Call in the morning and someone would tell me they can’t look anything up blah blah blah. I call back 5 minutes later and the rep would help me with the information
Yes you’re right. Maybe I’ll try again in the early morning
I usually try right around 7 or 8 am and they pick up right away.
So I got a check for part of my refund and when I called the X652 number spoke to a rep who said that allocated my dependents incorrectly to my husband who has a the outstanding debt and that I should fill out another IS form allocating the dependents to myself to receive the remaining portion of my refund. Has this happen to anyone else? I filed…[Read more]
I have a question on how can I look up when to expect my refund? Last year my refund was taken because of my exhusbands bill.. I just received the final determination that I have been granted relief. However the lady I am supposed to contact is on leave until july 10th.. so how do I find out when I should receive the check? is it through wmr?…[Read more]
You can call irs directly or wmr but it might not even update. For the past 3 years with the injured spouse my wmr never updated. This year it did with the amount and when I’ll get my check.
ok do I put in last years year or this years? being it was last years income tax I’m not sure which one I should put..
So for 2016 you will put in your SSN and then how you filed, and then you have to know the exact amount your refund. If you don’t know the amount then you will probably have to call them on Monday.
I believe I have to call on Monday because nothing is coming up on wmr… I really hate calling those people, would have been better if my contact person was in the office.. but thank you anyway!!
No worries! It helps if you get a nice person who’s actually willing to help. Good luck to you!
WAS TOLD MY CHECK WAS MAILED TODAY!! Whoop whoop!!
OMG I just found out… ME TOOOOOO!!! congrats…..Yeyyyy.
It’s been a long road!
Filed in Feb
Found out 3/10 about offset
IS form received 3/17
Waited 8 weeks called IRS to find out no one has worked my case and that a referral would be put in. Referral placed 5/16 and had to wait 30 days. Called at 31 days and was told my case closed 6/7 and to wait to two weeks. Two weeks was 6/23, called IRS and was…[Read more]
@bgipson23, We have the exact same dates. I don’t get mine mailed til the 10th. You lucky soul.
@steve have you called and checked? The 10th is a Monday, and normally(from what I hear) they only mail out on Fridays
Both IRS and TA have told me the 10th. I thought that a Monday was strange as well.
@stevea78 my wmr updated today and I’m also getting my check the 10th. Well it says it is scheduled to be mailed by July 10th.
@nataliam congrats!! Finally it’s all over
Thank you! Right! It’s been a real pain this year. Congrats to you too!
Hi Guys…happy Friday… what is the number to call to find out if your check was mailed please and thank you!
You can call the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040 or you can call 1-800-829-0582 ext. 652. I called the IRS directly yesterday & had a wait time of 15-30 minutes. I decided to call the other number and the wait time was the same.
Here’s the number to BFS they can tell you if the check has been mailed.
