If an individual owes money to the federal government because of a delinquent debt, the Treasury Department can offset that individual’s federal payment or withhold the entire amount to satisfy the debt.
HEALTHCARE PENALTY OFFSET (896)
January 29, 2015 at 1:47 am #4096240
Anyone with 896 & 570 transaction codes on your transcript, please post here. Let’s update each other.
January 29, 2015 at 1:50 pm #4096796
You will know if its already taken out if you look back up towards the top and it has a note about a minus sign being a credit. Is that amount reflecting your full refund or the amount after penaltyJanuary 29, 2015 at 1:49 pm #4096794
My account transcript does, and record of account transcript shows original amount and how the penalty was subtracted and then amount of refund.
It looks like I have all transcripts (account, record of account, and return) filled in but the wage one.January 29, 2015 at 1:48 pm #4096792
Carenpa I like your line of thinking! Whatthahappened I think it is already taken out because when I am looking at my transcripts it shows in payment section/ individual responsibility healthcare. And yes I can see both on mine.January 29, 2015 at 1:45 pm #4096791
i have read, on here through reliable source, the 896/570 should update tonight and if your a 20150402 , funds should be released tonight/tommrw. the 896 is the healthcode penalty and the 570 is ‘holding’ your return so it doesn’t go out to you without the penalty being applied, which is supposed to happen tonight.January 29, 2015 at 1:44 pm #4096789
My 896 code has the same amount I paid for health insurance and my refund total reflects that. I am able to see all my transcripts.
I was wondering if maybe we got re sequenced too. Maybe they have to manually put ours in because they didn’t go through correctly. Just a theory.January 29, 2015 at 1:40 pm #4096788
I have been on hold for 25 min, I will let you all know what I hear.
@taxpayer2013: Somone called, Kendra I believe and they told her she was under review. I doubt the irs person was right though.January 29, 2015 at 1:39 pm #4096787
I’m in the same boat…. :( Crystal I had the exact same things happen with transcripts then today I tried again. I didn’t even know about the codes at the time. I just wanted my transcripts. It let me go in today and get them, then I found about these stupid codes! Did you try again today to get yours? I am so annoyed! I hope we all get a happy surprise in the morning! If I find out any new info I will share! Have a great day everyone, will check back later!:)January 29, 2015 at 1:38 pm #4096785
Ok, I need a survey.
If you have the 896/570 combo, and you can view your transcripts –
A. Does your transcript reflect your refund amount, with the penalty already deducted?
B. Does your transcript show the 896 with your penalty amount, however the refund amount is still in full, without the penalty being deducted yet?
C. Do you have account transcripts, return transcripts, or both?January 29, 2015 at 1:33 pm #4096782
I have also read on other sites as well to not worry much about the 570. We will see! Hopefully we will see some kind of progress by tomorrow!!January 29, 2015 at 1:18 pm #4096767
There are so many different answers and stories. Although the facts remain that we do have 896/570 codes. Is it possible that since we filed early not only did they gives these codes but resequenced us at the same time, another theory to throw out there. I just wish we good get an honest answer. We pay tax companies to file our taxes, they should be able to help get an answer!January 29, 2015 at 1:12 pm #4096759
Hey i currently have the 896 code and 570 code. I haven’t had any updates or anything. Still have one bar, and filed through turbo tax.January 29, 2015 at 1:08 pm #4096752
There is no way we are all under review. I have the ext# 652 I just need the main number. I am going to call this is turning into some hot mess!January 29, 2015 at 1:02 pm #4096745
So same thing 896/570 my 570 doe shave 00.00 which sounds like a good thing..But I think if nothing is DD in the morning or changed I think not just 1 or 2 but EVERYONE should call then put our phone experience on here and best quotes gets the cake lol ;) also getting on my nerves it the error for this sight lol…January 29, 2015 at 1:01 pm #4096743

The worst part of this is the gossip. People throughout the internet are making things up, repeating things they heard, or getting misinformation from uninformed IRS reps. I have heard we are all under review, that it will be take 4-6 weeks to process health care penalties, that we will have our DDD tomorrow, that we are getting a audit, etc.
If tomorrow morning comes and go without a change at all, I think alot of us will just loose it. lolJanuary 29, 2015 at 12:48 pm #4096728
This is the IRS guide to helping you understand codesJanuary 29, 2015 at 12:46 pm #4096722
I am jumping in on the perplexed bandwagon..
I filed with TT on 1/21
Was approved within minutes
WMR shows 1 bar and has maintained that bar
I was able to view my transcripts on Monday, however, ever since… they have either given me error codes or said I was “locked out” for misinformation.
When I saw my t’s I had a cycle of 20140402 with the 896/570
I feel like we have been voted off the island! I am not much of an obsessive girl, but the “limbo” is maddening!January 29, 2015 at 11:40 am #4096646
Thanks Kendra and let us know what you find out.January 29, 2015 at 11:21 am #4096625
I am on hold with irs now, hopefully i get an answer, my friend had the healthcare penalty and never had the 570 code just 896 and was approved today.January 29, 2015 at 10:49 am #4096597
@jasvan70 That would be great if the “no hold” part is true, thanks for sharing.January 29, 2015 at 10:38 am #4096583
I’ve been reading several help groups that have people in it with our same situation..
One lady just got off phone with a nice IRS rep that told her it should auto remove and shouldn’t hold up their refund. She said that as long as code 971 isn’t on there there should be no issues and that WMR and even transcript might not even update until after we receive dd! Even though the person could view their transcript and see it had the 570 code the IRS rep said their was no hold on their end? This is absolutely crazy! Let’s all just keep pulling for one another. I sure hope we see dd tomorrow or for you card holders tonight. If we don’t then I’m calling IRS lol! I’m just reporting what I read…..January 29, 2015 at 10:03 am #4096545
Typical 21 day answer. So after talking to a CPA he said that if we can see a return transcript we should be completly done processing. Meaning no review or audit. After hearing someone else’s story we came to the conclusion that maybe our transcripts won’t update until after we receive our refunds or DDD In that case the 570 will come off and 846 will be in it’s place. Just gotta stay positive!January 29, 2015 at 9:57 am #4096542
Saw this on TurboTax site from someone…I will copy and paste

I just got off the phone with the IRS I was told that the code 570 is for the ACA insurance penalty but that it is not holding up the refund and they could not give me any more information until the 21 days were up but that I should still receive my refund within 21 daysJanuary 29, 2015 at 9:47 am #4096533
Ok, so I called IRS yesterday, the lady I spoke with researched why I was getting the 570 code (I also have the 896 for healthcare penalty). And after 20 minutes of research she got back on to tell me she wasn’t seeing any information regarding the 570 and to call back after the return has hit the 21 day mark for more information.
I also called my tax preparer – they said not to worry because normally if I did owe something the 570 would have an actual amount instead of $0.00January 29, 2015 at 9:27 am #4096514
Just so we can keep the info train rolling and compare information:
Filed 1/7 through TT
Rejected 1/15 due to internal TT error
Filed 1/18 through TA
Accepted 1/20 through TA
Got my first bar on 1/20
Have not lost that bar to date.
Only TT 152 on WMR.
HOH, EIC, Child Tax Credit, Child Care Credit, Health Care Penalty.
I have the cycle code set for a DD of 1/30, and determined I had the 896/570 dreaded combo on day 1 of the transcripts opening up.January 29, 2015 at 9:27 am #4096513
So I tried accessing my transcripts again this morning and still getting the error message cannot verify your identity hmmmm not sure whats going on I did try to request by mail my 2014 account and return transcript but it says its not available what could that mean for me?January 29, 2015 at 9:23 am #4096511
Anyone willing to call IRS? I’ve never had a holdup period with my refund…always did it early always get refund early….this is nerve wracking. Yes I’ve had one bar since acceptance…nothing changed…January 29, 2015 at 8:58 am #4096476
I tried on Monday, a couple of hours after creating the first account that I couldn’t log into. Yes, I used the same email and registered a new account and it worked to log in. They sent the confirmation code instantly. I’ve had no problem logging into the account all week since then.January 29, 2015 at 8:55 am #4096474
@cmonnnnn: okay so when u did try and used you’re first email again it sent u you’re confirmation code to log in ?January 29, 2015 at 8:50 am #4096467
@relle I made an account to login on Monday and it said info was wrong when I tried to login after. I then made a second account on Monday but used the same email and it worked. That is the account I use to log in with now. Don’t know if that will help, but maybe try the first email again to make another account?January 29, 2015 at 8:40 am #4096459
Okay just tried to re registered my user ID to start a whole new user ID and password to get my transcript but it’s says that it will send to my email adress for the confirmation code but nothing came tried 2 different emails I have still nothing in either one I just need to long in but seems like irs isn’t sending no confirmation code but last year when I requested it to be sent they “irs’ sent it soon as I clicked the link please someone help JUST Trying to see my transcriptJanuary 29, 2015 at 8:34 am #4096445
I still have one bar.
we had to go in office to Jackson Hewitt this year (still mad about those damn fees) so i bet if it drops tomorrow I’ll have to wait til Saturday or Monday. But as long as one of you guys updates i won’t be worried!January 29, 2015 at 8:25 am #4096435
@Jewel0789: not sure but i do know they have their own bank. so fees are deducted by H&R Block Bank.January 29, 2015 at 8:23 am #4096432
@2013taxpayer Thank you! Well, I’ll be keeping fingers crossed that it falls off tonight and codes are updated tomorrow!January 29, 2015 at 8:20 am #4096427
@carenpa: :( i really hope we see some kind of movement soon as well. Pretty frustrating knowing we should’ve gotten ours by now or tomorrow but instead one code is preventing that from us. Ugh
@cmonnn: if it falls off today by 10pm like it should, it will update on transcript on next business day with 846 which is tomorrow. We want to see a 571 and 846. If we are delayed, I hope it’s just like a couple of days if they don’t follow through.January 29, 2015 at 8:19 am #4096425
I’m trying not to worry until maybe Tuesday.. I am getting my fees taken out so if it proceeds as normal I will get it Monday.. Holding tomorrow but we will see.. Does anyone know how to check the fees taken put for h&r block?January 29, 2015 at 8:15 am #4096416
So according to the manual, our transcript should update tonight after 10pm to the 846 code?January 29, 2015 at 8:10 am #4096413
I am beginning to to worry. Unfortunately I do not have faith in the IRS or their system. I hope we see movement today or tonight. No changes in transcript today and I have been at my one bar since Jan 16January 29, 2015 at 8:07 am #4096410
@relle: I’m sure you have checked your junk mail. What you can do is after when you click on Forgot UserID, instead of filling those 3 fielda out…just click on the link re-register. That way you can make a new user ID. Hope this method will work out for ya!January 29, 2015 at 8:00 am #4096401
So let me get this correct if u don’t have health care it’s some kind of delay if so for how long long filed on the 24th wmr on shows 1 bar and tt152 I can’t seem to get my transcript because I don’t have my user ID from last year and when I type in my email for the it’s to send me my user ID it never comes to my email SOME ONE PLEASE HELPJanuary 29, 2015 at 7:54 am #4096385
@cmonnnnn: yeah…they have had it since acceptanceJanuary 29, 2015 at 7:53 am #4096381
@CRYSTALINORLANDO: lol….that’s what I said!!! I should’ve just lied on that question! hahahaJanuary 29, 2015 at 7:50 am #4096378
@cmonnnnn I meant since acceptance not approvalJanuary 29, 2015 at 7:50 am #4096376
@cmonnnnm: no, you’re not the only one with a bar. Jasvan & Abbey have a bar.January 29, 2015 at 7:49 am #4096374
I have never had any problems with my tax return up until this year. I have always received my return the first batch and nothing drastic has changed with my return in the last 4 years other than making a few extra 1000 dollars last year so I definitely just think it has to do with this healthcare penalty I guess thats what we get for being honest huh? Just should have put that I had healthcare coverage so I could receive my deposit tomorrow ugh I hate the IRS right about now lolJanuary 29, 2015 at 7:48 am #4096372
my situation is a little different. I don’t have 896, i have a credit for health insurance because I paid more than i should have apparently…. but I too have 570 because I imagine the credit works the same way the offset would if money is going to or coming from the same place. UGHJanuary 29, 2015 at 7:46 am #4096371
@ 2013taxpayer: unfortunately I have not received and update either just missing bars on WMR since I pretty much filed :(January 29, 2015 at 7:45 am #4096369
Does everyone here have missing bars? I have had the one bar since approval and it’s never disappeared. I hope I’m not the only one with a bar in this situation. That might mean I have more problems with my return? :(January 29, 2015 at 7:39 am #4096362
@cmonnnnn: same! I wouldnt care if it wasnt for tomorrow. Just give us a DDD!!!
@CRYSTALINORLANDO: i filed 13th, accepted 14th, bars and refund amount went bye-bye (have tt152) 17th. To this day still missing bars.January 29, 2015 at 7:37 am #4096361
@CRYSTALINORLANDO: according to their manual, it’s supposed to be released as scheduled. But knowing unpredictable irs, who knows if they will actually let it? ugh
