Injured Spouse

  • Laina posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days ago

    Just got off the phone with the is claims department and they said my case was closed yesterday 313. And I need to wait two to four weeks but they did give me a refund amount I’m just hoping it’ll be a lot sooner than what they said. Has anyone gotten a close date and received it sooner than the two to four weeks is what I’m wondering any response…[Read more]

    • Ours was closed 3/2 and we got our refund today, 3/14 so ours took 12 days. Hope yours comes soon!

    • Lana replied 3 days ago

      My IS closed on 3/7. Still haven’t gotten an update on when I will receive DDD

    • How long was your case open for??

    • They received my IS on 2/9. It was mailed after we efiled was accepted 2/4. We had EIC, CTC also. Did you all efiled the injured spouse claim also or did you send it in separate?

    • What number are you calling to get to the IS claims dept?

    • We filed and were accepted on 2/8 so from file to close was 3 weeks 1 day. We efiled with tt and is attached and had eic and additional child credit. I’ve never gotten through to the is dept, just called the number with the 652 ext and both times was lucky enough to have someone willing to do their jobs.

    • Laina replied 2 days ago

      Eric call 8008290582 then press 1 for English and then ext#652. They are not always going to be helpful so play dumb with them. I’ve also taken to writing down their badge #’s they give in case I have to contact a tax advocate

    Called the 652 ext. This morning and was told there was no liability? Which I don’t understand because the offset line has 2 debts on my social. Anyway she put me on hold to look into our file and she came back and said that it’s being worked and to call back next week and I should have a DDD!!! I’m guessing for the following week so 2 weeks from…[Read more]

    Anyone else mail in their IS form and it be accepted early February? Accepted 02/05 & closed around 03/01. EIC & CTC. Any updates for anyone in this similar situation timeframe?

  • Tina posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 12 hours ago

    I filed via turbo tax. Was accepted 2/20/18. When I check online the status doesn’t give me any info. I looked at my transcript and it’s giving me code 150 tax return filed with date of 3/12/18? Then the last activity I have seen for while is 570 with date also of 3/12/18. Is this normal? Should I be calling? Thanks!

    • 570 is the code for a 45 day hold I believe. I have the same one & have read here that thats what it’s for.

    • Is 570 the last code you see on your transcript? I see people saying they know when the injured spouse was recieved or worked on but nothing that I see on my transcript even shows that it was recieved! Thanks so much!

    Hello! Any and all help/advice appreciated!
    First year filing IS. Husband did not work 2017, refund offset due to his student loans. Filed with HRblock 2/10, accepted 2/11. Received state refund 2/22. WMR updated showing offset. Mailed IS form 2/26. Transcripts show 898 code w/date 3/05. Date for 150 code also updated to 3/5. TOP line updated…[Read more]

  • Sunshine Castro posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 13 hours ago

    I am so frustrated! I filed on 1/22 and was accepted 1/23. My IS was picked up by some lovely lazy bum at the IRS on 1/25. My transcripts showed that it was fully processed on 2/12. No DDD as of yet because apparently according to the several IRS agents that I spoke to, “you need to wait 11 weeks…blah…blah…blah!” So I called yesterday…[Read more]

  • NicoMehta posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 13 hours ago

    Has anyone gotten a 570 code & gotten their money before the 45 days?

  • Victoria posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 14 hours ago

    New to the group and hoping for some insite…Filed on 1/25 , accepted on 1/26, electronically filed IS same time as return (first time, last year they took all of our return and that’s how we found out we should file IS this year.) We had child tax credit, hubby is IS and primary earner ( I make 2800/yr stipend).. I called on 2/25, and asked to…[Read more]

    • I have an identical situation as yourself except I am the sole money maker and IS. I also filed a tad earlier than you. I filed on 1/22 and accepted 1/23. My IS file was picked up on 1/25 and my return was processed on 2/12. I am beyond frustrated at this point. I was basically told that someone picked up my IS file and haven’t worked on it…[Read more]

    • The offset line updated 5 days before our ddd but wmr never did. Is CA a community property state?

    • I’m curious about the dates that your IS was picked up because the lady I spoke with (who seemed to know her stuff well) said that all returns stay in accounting for 3 weeks where they process your actual return then at the 3 week Mark they get sent to IS and they say to wait another 8 weeks which is where the whole 11 week deal come in to play.…[Read more]

    • @Brittany, yes CA is community property.

      @Tedb, I am confused… I would like to know what the “posted” means. I was told our return posted and they were working our IS… I have been given 2 different 11 weeks from dates, so the 1st time was 11wks from 2/16 and yesterday was 11 weeks from 2/1…

  • Mera posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 18 hours ago

    Dose anyone have the offset number please

  • Mera posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 19 hours ago

    I did mine on 1/19 accept that same day is received it on 2/23 and i called 3 time is was being held for more review and they told me the beginning of may or the middle of may has anyone gone through this its my first time

  • Injured2015 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 22 hours ago

    @Toria: I would call if I were you. I just off the phone with the IS Dept and was told my form was completed incorrect and all my refund was applied to my husband child support. She was able to reverse it but now wait an additional 3-5 weeks to receive my refund

  • Laina posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 23 hours ago

    Does anyone know if the offset line updates after they return the original refund amount

  • Willow posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 1 hour ago

    Hello! I was just curious how you all are able to reach a live person with the irs? I filed on 1/30, sent in the IS on 2/7. Our refund status shows that it was applied to my husbands student loans. I know that I am supposed to wait 8 weeks for processing but I just want to make sure they received the IS. I’ve also seen several people saying they…[Read more]

    • Alisha replied 4 days ago

      So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for “personal income tax” instead.

      Then press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.

      Then press 3 “for all other questions.”

      Then press 2 “for all other questions.”

      – When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account…[Read more]

    • Alisha replied 4 days ago

      Be really nice and play dumb, thats what I do… haha you should be able to get some answers.

    • Mike replied 4 days ago


    • Thank you sooo much. I have tried getting through to someone several times and couldn’t reach anyone. I’ll give that a try. Fingers crossed I get lucky and get some info on my first try.

    • Thanks Mike! As I was leaving for my lunch break it dawned on me that that was probably what it stood for. I’m blaming daylight savings for my slower mind the last 2 days.

    • I would still call and speak to someone. They received my form 2/5 and it was completed but incorrect and applied to my husband debt. I called today and had it re-sent back to me

  • Alisha posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 1 hour ago

    Filed IS February 14th, accepted on the 15th. IS department intercepted it February 20th, the lady said it takes two weeks to be assigned to someone. Someone was assigned to my case March 5/6th. Does anyone know how long it takes to receive your refund once someone is assigned to your case? 1st year filing jointly.. the IRS lady said thats…[Read more]

    • I believe ours was closed about a week after it was assigned. I filed 2/8 with is attached and my is was closed on 3/2 with a Ddd of 3/14 so from filing date to ddd ours took just under 5 weeks with eic and additional child credit. But I’ve also noticed some people who filed before we didwith the same credits are still waiting so Im not sure…[Read more]

    • Filed 1/19, accepted 1/22. Efiled injured spouse with return, have EIC and CTC. Processing date of 2/12. Transcripts show 570 code, no updates yet

    • Sounds like someone is giving you wrong information!
      I spoke to a very nice and very intelligent lady 2 weeks back that explained the whole thing to me.
      After they receive your return it sits in accounting for 3 WEEKS before being sent to IS dept. This is when they complete the return and send off any offset amount.
      Then after 3 weeks IS dept.…[Read more]

  • T posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 1 hour ago

    Filed Taxes and IS w/ HR Block on 2-10. Have EIC, CTC, and ETC. No access to transcripts. WMR of course no help says “Still Processing.” Offset line just says there is a debt and return may be used. Debt is husbands owed back child support. He only made 5K last year, rest of income was mine (Injured Spouse). Haven’t called IRS yet (trying to hold…[Read more]

    • Tedb replied 4 days ago

      I filed HR as well. Filed and accepted 1-31. I was told my IS was opened on 3-5. She also said that accounting holds it for 3 weeks. Then it gets sent to IS and they request the offset BACK from where it was sent and say to give IS 8 weeks. So plus the 3 in accounting that’s where the 11 week speal! BUT she said it depends on how fast the money…[Read more]

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

    Well…….DDD is 3/14. It has been sent to TT bank and now I’m waiting for them to send it to my bank. Refund dust to all!!!

    • Did you get that DDD per rep or transcript? When did your IS close?

    • @Henry …….was told IS closed 3/5 WMR updated that Saturday for DDD of 3/14. Looked on TT bank website and they have gotten the money and deducted fees and says paid remainder so just waiting for it to be in account

    • @Cierra After IS closed, did WMR info you entered change to the new expected amount? A rep told me that I would need to enter my new expected amount after my IS closed.. WMR just tells me ‘you’ve entered the info incorrectly’ Meh. I believe mine closed around 03/01… Thanks C

    • @Henry, my is closed 3/2 and offset line updated to offset of 3/14 but wmr hasnt updated with my original or new rerun amount. Only thing that changed was where it used to say a direct deposit date will be provided when available, now that parts gone and it just says return has been received and being processed. Seems like some update and some dont.

    • Where do you look to see if TurboTax has been paid?

  • Toria posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 15 hours ago

    I’m trying my best not to have a full-blown panic attack. I’ve filed Injured Spouse successfully for a few years now. This year was supposed to be just as simple, I received a letter that our return was sent to my husband’s obligation via EFT. I’ve seen letters in the past warning us about a possible offset, but this one was the actual offset.…[Read more]

    • I would call and ask to speak to the injured spouse dept because you got a letter stating the refund was being used for ghe offset and you know that you are entitled to the $$ so you want to speak with somebody to see if you filled the form out correctly and if you didnt what would be the next step.

    • Can you tell me what question you answered wrong ? Also you will have to file another is form and go through the process again. I also files is 2/2 And still have 1541 code. No ddd

    • When I spoke to the lady last week she informed me that any offset automatically gets sent out as soon as they process the returns in the accounting dept. It is then sent to the IS dept. Where they make sure everything is correct and THEN request back whatever portion the injured spouse would receive from wherever the money was sent. Taste said…[Read more]

    • I received the same letter and still don’t know what to do

    • Okay, I ended up looking at my form again (I filed through Turbo Tax) and realized me doing it incorrectly could NOT have been the issue. It was identical to last year.

      I called the IRS and found out that because I had a mathematical error, the person who fixed it didn’t correctly set the system to note my return had an injured spouse form. He…[Read more]

    • Sounds almost like my situation least you got it taken care of

  • NicoMehta posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 15 hours ago

    What is the DDD code? 846? How are things dated for in the future on my transcript?

  • Cierra posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 18 hours ago

    Just wondering. For those who filed with Turbo Tax. If you had fees taken out of refund. Did anybody get their money early or did it appear on the DDD. ?

    • I filed like that also and would like to know as well. I f/a on 1/30, have been stuck on delay in processing since the first week of Feb, transcript shows 570 code of 2/26. I can’t get any answers when I call them and would still like to know how long it takes for TT to deduct fees before you get the refund.

    • @SIM you should call and ask for the injured spouse dept. Tell them you want ti make sure you filled it out correctly. Once u get them. Just be honest be like this is when i filed and i havent gotten anything and you would like to know what stage it is in. I found you have better luck early in the am or right before 7pm

    • @cierra do you know which # and which extension? I was told 45 day review speech which puts me at April 5 😞

    • @KayLyn i called e times back to back and told they were not allowed to tell me anything….hung up and on the 4th try i was really nice and acted likr i was totally dumb about the IS and asked to be transferred so i could nake sure everything wad right and to see what stage i was in. Got put through and got a nice lady and i just told her mam im…[Read more]

    • @Cierra thanks for the advice. I’m going to call tomorrow and hope someone will take the time and extra keystrokes to look into it so I can finally get some answers. So I just need to ask for the IS dept when I call them?

    • I’ve seen so many different extensions it’s no wonder I always end up getting reps who are reading off a script

    • Yes. When did you file

    • @Cierra I filed/accepted 1/30 efiled by TT. I’ll call today and let you know if I have any luck. Thanks again

    • I called yesterday. Asked to speak to someone in IS dept and the lady I spoke to then tried to give me the 11 week speech yet again. The only thing she would tell me is that they’re working it now, but it “could be far from over” and she wouldn’t know more until mid April. Wasted another call just to be frustrated still.

  • Eileen posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 20 hours ago

    Ok so after seeing people getting DDD for March 14 i decided to call IRS. After speaking to an amazing lady while acting like i didn’t know. She was able to tell me that my refund date is the same date. Whoo hoo yay for a speedy process this year.
