    The f is a typo. Just 805, but she had a thick accent. I’ve debated whether she said 809 or another number but the ones I’ve seen wouldn’t make sense.

    I completely understand!

    Accepted on the 12th with many early filers. My cycle was the first one 20150402, Jan 26 is when my transcripts popped up with the infamous 570 896. Bastards at the IRS got me confused with some backwoods asshole. I’m an educated man, who just happens to be broke as hell, lol.

    I want to be a beacon of hope in this. I called a TAdvocate this morning and she was blunt but very helpful. I asked her the same question in several different ways to make sure her answers remained the same. I found out that the transcript that is available for me is not updated. She said there were two more codes below the 570 that I didn’t see. One was the 571, which she explained was the profound “systemic release” which I thought was automatic after four days. Well apparently she said it is a four day thing, and the freeze will release at the end of this week. She said most likely Thursday, and that WMR would update with a DDD for next week, Monday or so. I truly don’t care what the DDD is, I will just be happy to see one. The other code, she said was an 805f which I couldn’t find in the IRS manual, but I haven’t had much time between classes today. I was in the 0402 cycle which a lot of us are. I expect that we will all see changes the end of this week and I wish everyone that exact statement. I posted this in a comment field in the #570group on Facebook as well. Furthermore, I repeatedly asked if I should open a hardship case because I told her my electricity was about to get shut off and she said it would be pointless because it would take 3 days for a response, and I would see an update before then. I’m Phillip Howard on the #570group.

    Hello, 0405 here with a lonely, solo 570, just checking in. No changes to my transcripts or WMR. Was able to transfer transcripts to FAFSA for my kids’ school. With that out of the way, I am less stressed. I expect to see something happen Friday. Transcripts update during the day. I hope I go this week. My deposit date should have been tomorrow… I’ll take next Wednesday no problem! I have to say… for a brand new program (collecting the healthcare tax), the IRS is doing a pretty good job. I’m interested to watch how they work through glitches, and I’ve taken the time to read through some parts of the manual. It is massive. I would love to get a look at their computer systems. Considering how many returns they process, it’s pretty impressive. We are still under the 21-day benchmark, which is the deal they make with us on WMR. Have a less stressful day! :)

    I just got off the phone with IRS and the lady told me to expect at least a 28 day wait instead of 21 days. I have heard so many things that I don’t know what to believe anymore. We will just get it when we do I guess.

    @ty if they sent out a letter to us, yes, the 971 would be on our transcript.

    I just saw somone named Rebecca who only had the 570 in the fb group (#Club570) I am in and hers updated today with an 846. But I guess her situation is diff from leslie ans Nikki because she said she had the 570 on her 2013 transcript since November. Her cycle date changed as well so looks like she will be getting her DD this Fri.

    First, I am thankful that I did not wake up to my transcript updated to a 971 on it. Second, no panick here because I knew there would be an update yesterday or today thanks to @whathappened. Third, I haven’t heard of anyone or many of the 897/570’er get the 971 on transcript.

    I am still counting on getting an update Wed into Thurs or over the weekend. When it gets to next week and if still nothing then I will freak out haha. I really believe we are fine because we have not received a letter and we didn’t get a 971. Be thankful that we didn’t get the 971 update today is all I can say.

    I didn’t get the 971 code either. I just spent 45 minutes on hold to speak to an extremely rude person named Ms Baker who told me there is no way I can see my transcripts! I was looking at them while talking to her! I only have the 570 code. She told me she doesn’t see the code and there have been no letters sent to me and hung up! Just like that.

    I’m thinking it’s just a letter saying how much they appreciate us letting them invest our money interest free and to keep up the good work. ya think? Actually hearing you have one too, I’m positive it’s just the generic letter saying there is a delay that they are working out and no information is required at this time…. i suppose we will see if the thing actually got mailed since it’s dated 2/23/15 so who knows if it’s been sent out or if it will go out then because it will be past the 21 days at that point. ugh.

    @nikki I woke up to 971 at the bottom of my transcripts too. I filed 20th, accepted the 21st, I have a healthcare credit rather than offset so I never had the 896, instead I overpaid for health insurance but have been sitting with a 570 since last Tuesday and this morning I saw the new 971 code at the bottom which I assume is to explain the delay or whatever. I’ve had no changes or lost bars on wmr, just holding at 1 bar and tt152 and the generic “you should have your refund in 21 days” stuff.

    I am not too worried about the 896/570 codes as I did my boyfriends taxes on the 23rd and on Saturday he got a ddd of 2/4. He also had the heath care penalty for himself and 2 dependents. I’m not sure if it makes a difference that he was only without insurance the first half of the year, then his employers insurance kicked in for he and his kids the last half and my son and I were without all year. I was never able to pull his transcripts however as the security questions that were asked were from years ago and he couldn’t remember any of the answers.

    @nikki Same here, I’m not in dire need of my refund either, but the stress of not knowing if I will get it this month or 4 months from now is killing me. I almost wish they would send me a letter so I knew what was going on. Until something changes, I’ll just keep checking and wondering.

    @ty Nope, mine didn’t. I want to know why our transcripts didn’t update either. If the 570 is supposed to fall off in 4 days, then wouldn’t they have to extend it or something if it is staying on? My transcripts look identical to last weeks.

    No news at all….I still have the 896/570 on my transcripts, 1 bar on WMR, and a huge lack of hope. A few years ago I owed for child support and it was handled faster than this. I am not in dire need of the money, but would still like to know if and when my refund will come through. Thankfully, next year I will have had insurance the whole year. I got insurance in August of last year so I don’t even owe for the whole year. I don’t understand how such a small amount of money can hold up my whole return ($116 thats it). I would have gladly paid the fine. I just feel like there was a glitch in their system that caused us to be froze and now they can’t seem to go back and unfreeze us. .

    @NVkimi Nothing you can do as far as accessing the online version. You can use the mail request system and phone request system with a “close” match. Online requires you to have it exactly right, as it is pulling it up immediately. Only thing you can do is try 3 times, get locked out for 24 hours, and try again. Try to take note of which ways you tried, and don’t waste all 3 times using the same exact format. Things to try changing would be like N vs. North, Rd vs. Road. If your street has 2 names, try them all together like Johnson Ferry, try Johnsonferry. Its hit or miss unfortunately

    @andy Funny you mention that, I had the same exact thing happen to me. Didn’t register an account, was just viewing transcripts as a guest. Then all the sudden information that I had accessed my account with suddenly wasn’t working anymore, and I too locked myself out. It happens when you get resequenced/reprocessed (whatever you want to call it) or if you finish processing. Even if your address didn’t change from last year, the way the system recognizes and records it, can vary from year to year.

    For example you live at 1234 North Sycamore Lane for 10 years
    Say you access your transcripts 1 year and it comes up with your full address 1234 North Sycamore Lane
    You try the following year to find that won’t work but 1234 N Sycamore Lane does work
    You try again the 3rd year to find out neither of the previous 2 years formats work but instead 1234 North Sycamore Ln does work.

    Well if the information you use this year reverts back to the previous year, or suddenly doesn’t work, its because they either resequenced/reprocessed you, causing the new information to temporarily be gone OR you have completed processing, and updated again, and the address was tweaked slightly.

    People who created accounts, don’t notice this kind of change because they sign in with a username and don’t have to address verify each time.

    @sax mom 971 on transcripts is the code for Notice Issued. Innocent spouse form is 8857 I believe. You may get a 971 on your transcripts if you filed innocent spouse, but that will just be a notice pertaining to your particular tax situation. Each notice has is own separate notice/letter number to identify what its for.

    I am one of the 570/896 ppl. Reading thru this has been most helpful. I have the cycle code 20150402 as well had the health care penalty, filed 1/20, accepted 1/21 still stuck at 1 bar. Same as most everyone else here lol . I was hoping to check my transcripts tonight or tomorrow morning to see if anything has changed but it locked me out for 24 hours because I supposedly entered some wrong info. Was the same info I entered yesterday and the day before and it worked. since I will not be able to check my transcripts again until tomorrow evening I am hoping all of you will update here if yours change at all so I maybe have an idea if mine may change as well.

However if the letter you get says no further information is required from you at this time, you still have to wait the 21 days.

    @*ty* Nope. I said this the other day, but I don’t think people quite understand it. Yes, your return transcript shows up once its in the system and been processed, and at the conclusion of processing you move on to the next step. However the next step isn’t always a refund. Some people get a refund issued. Some people get reviews posted. Some people end up with an examination/audit. This happens after the fact because they don’t know that they want to review or question your return until the information is in the system, and processes, and than throws up a flag saying that something needs to be verified or reviewed.

    @pooh pooh So she saw 971/570 and not 896??? Yet you see 570/896 and not 971???? I can’t even begin to explain how that is possible.

    As for the transcripts, no, they don’t only update once a week. People on daily cycles have their transcripts come available multiple days per week. Your transcripts become available as your return is beginning to be processed, and continue to update until complete, and post to a cycle, for example 20150402, which is what most 896/570’s are in. There haven’t been any updates in a few days currently because as I said Friday was a deferred day and Saturday and Sunday aren’t posting days. So the next possible day for info to post to transcripts will be tonight. WMR still won’t reflect anything new until Wednesday though, except for people who are new acknowledgements, and some may continue to lose bars.

She does have your permission as your preparer, to call the IRS and discuss your account on your behalf.

    @whathappened @nikki – I had no changes this year other then the healthcare penalty, and no I can’t see the 971 code on my transcript. I called the IRS today and told them I had a 1121 on my WMR (I don’t, had 1 bar and TT 152 since I was accepted on the 21st) and that WMR said I needed to call. She explains that it can be an issue so she pulls up my info and asked if I had seen my transcripts. I told her yes and she said “So you can see the 570 and then the 971 below that?” . I said no I only see the 896 which is for the healthcare and the 570. She said “OK so you cant see the 971, well that probably because that code is mostly for us.” She said it wasn’t a big deal and that is was directly related to the healthcare penalty but because of the issues with the system this year I was going to see a 1-3 weeks delay due to the penalty.

    I’m hoping its just a letter sent explaining what was taken out but I still worry ya know? Has anyone else around here mentioned anything about something like that? Anyway I have to run, Hope I answered the questions. I have to go meet the bus.

    @cmonnnnn Yes. You may have a 570 because the healthcare penalty, HOWEVER, it can also be because of EIC or something else they may want to question or review. If you have 896/570 and are 100% certain you have no other offsets, past tax debts, and you didn’t claim any other refundable credits, such as EIC, than your 570 is being cause by the health care issues only. But if you fall into one of those other categories, your 570 may mean something completely different.

    The reason people get so many different answers when calling the IRS, is because it depends on who you talk to. Some of the temps literally know NOTHING. To top it off, the ones that know a little more, are told to read off of a script. Yes a script. When you call in, they are told to not tell you the details of a hold code, or an audit code. They are suppose to give answers like, its still processing or It just needs more time to process. Every once in a while you get someone in a department, that is actually allowed to look further into your account, and they still aren’t suppose to give out certain information. A lot of time they will ask questions to see what you know.

    For example, If you are calling in, and ask do I have a 570 with 896, and is that because of the health care penalty. They can tell you, that it is, because you already know that. HOWEVER, they fail to mention that you may also have a EIC freeze, or an income review hold. They are not being fully open or transparent with your account details, because their policy is to not give out any more information than necessary. Calling over and over again will likely confuse you because each persons ability to access your account and their own general knowledge varies, therefore their answers are going to vary, and you won’t know what to believe.

    I still say we should see updates on WMR on Wednesday, money the end of the week for MOST of use who are ONLY 570/896 health care penalty or 570 because of the premium health credit (whether you got to much, or owed some). If you have other issues, such as past tax debts, offsets, claiming EIC, income review, etc., your return is in a different category, and may take longer.

I ordered my transcripts Friday and viewed them online same day and noticed i have the 896 code along with 570 . after reading some people response to this code I called the irs 15 min ago . I got someone on the phone pretty quickly . She looked at my account and told me its a freeze on my account .She also told me that it would take an additional 2-3 weeks. I don’t owe the irs any money i had my a.c.a. takin out of my refund . I was told their going to being looking further into alot of account with the a.c.a. So it made me wonder if we are being singled out since we filed our taxes honestly. And our there others without th 896 being held up .

    Some of these reps clearly have no idea what they’re talking about. So I called and let’s just say he didn’t ask for any type of credentials so I’m assuming he was just telling me stuff off the top I his head. He didn’t look into my account at all. Jut told me that the code 570 is a freeze and they’re not allowed to give any information until after those 21 days, which mine would be on the 10th…. And then he said if I didn’t receive a refund by then, it would take an additional 6 weeks Bc of the penalty I have to pay back for healthcare which is only $66. Now that didn’t sound right to me at all. He was surprised that I had my transcript already lol. When I called on Friday a different rep got all of my information and looked through my account and told me i had nothing to worry about. It was just a system issue. I’m more likely to believe the person i spoke with on Friday.

    And as for people who have never lost their bars, Ill touch on that real quick too, so no one gets scared. Not losing your bars, does not mean that you are hung up or not processing. It simply means you have never sat still in queue long enough to trigger WMR to drop bars. Most people who lost bars were the super early filers. They lost their bars because they sat still the longest, because when the 570 code started coming up, there wasn’t a fix right away. There seems to be people up til around the 23rd ish (may be some after that) that were getting the 570, when they fixed the problem. People who filed closer to the 20th or after, but before the fix, may not have ever lost their bars, because they haven’t sat idol for an extended time.

    @2013taxpayer It’s like I told you before, I aim to share only facts, and not act like I am an “all knowing power” LOL! As for the ones that doubt, I am ok with that as well. I can’t force anyone to believe my findings anymore than I can force the IRS to follow their own rules. I have seen speculation from other sites and forums, and everyone can gather information and interpret it however they want. That’s why I said earlier, that people need to not look for updates this morning (Monday), because its not going to happen. Yes, the code is 4 day systemic release, but that just to release the code. The refund has to then finish processing/reprocess/resequence (whatever you want to call it), and than post to your account to get the refund issued. Nothing has posted since Thursday into Friday, and won’t post until late tomorrow, which will trigger WMR updates on Wednesday for most.

Being the Friday was a deferred day, and nothing has posted since Thursday, there wont be any updates tonight. Some people may continue to lose bars, and new acknowledgements will show up. However updates related to transcripts, and posts to account will be Monday into Tuesday, and Wmr should update Tuesday into Wednesday for most.

    @2013taxpayer Yea when they first disappeared it was likely because the 570 popped up, held up your return, and your return stopped processing normally because of it. That caused the bars to go away along with the refund amount. Refund amount coming back is GREAT NEWS! That means the system is now once again acknowledging your return and your refund amount, and you are moving along. Like I said before, this week will be updates and money!

    @angie that’s the predicament most of us are in. No you don’t have to wait til April. Worst case scenario would be February 16th, but based on research and phone calls members here have done, its looking like we should have some updates this week.

    Hello,

    Worried. Can view both return & transcript. Filed 1/20 & accepted 1/21 cycle 20150402. Wer has 1 bar w/no DDD. Shows still processing 152.

    On transcript: Codes 806; 766; 768 with my refund amounts and date of April 15 2015

    Then 896 date of Feb 16

    And 570 $0.00 with date of Feb 16

    Does this mean I’ll have to wait until april 15 ? Would really appreciate Any help or info.

    @saxmom: that’s right :)

    Once you have access to your return, you are done processing. Just like many of us here with the 896/570. We are done processing cos we have our return transcript. We have a hold of 570 so they can take the fine out and it will be released to us. Unless like @whathappened said…something else is going on withn your return (other offsets, etc.).

    Here’s a little ray of sunshine… I am 0405 with 570 only, due an additional healthcare credit. I just used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer my tax info to my kids’ FAFSA. I don’t think I’d be able to do that if my return wasn’t processed and done. Looking forward to a refund soon.

    @2013taxpayer It’s not a problem. I have tried to help out the past few years where I could, even when it didn’t affect me. It just so happens this year I got caught up in this 896/570 crap, and took a special interest to it. Since I was trying to figure it all out for myself, I might as well share it. Glad to be of help!

    @nikki your 570 is health care related then. The IRS knows you owe a small amount back, which is similar to our penalties. Your 570 should fix itself as well along with ours.

    @whathappened yes I had insurance through the marketplace and I had to pay back a very small amount which was deducted as soon as I put the figures in.

    @starburst Yes. There a multiple people that have contacted the IRS, and have all been told the 896/570 together is healthcare related, and it is being fixed. If it goes the way it should, we should see our money this week, end of the week

    @*ty* Yes. Having 896 with 570 only is good. Means your hold is directly related to your penalty, and nothing you need to do

    @nikki If those are your only codes, 150 is your return filed tax liability which is likely 0.00, 766 Is child tax credit, 768 is EIC. If your 570 is after that, and you have no 971, or 810, you shouldn’t be delayed. Did you have health care? Were you exempt from the penalty?

    I don’t won’t to answer that wrong… but I have the 896 with it… but from what I understand the 570 having a 0.00 is a good sign.

    @whathappened are you saying that if we only have a 570, that we are under review for something? I’m not seeing a 896 along with 570. I only see 150, 766(-$1934),768(-$5240), 570($0.00). Sorry if I misunderstood, but I’m just trying to get some kind of understanding. Yeah I did talk to a rep in Friday and he told me that I did nothing wrong it’s just a system issue and I’ll get my money.

    @*ty* Yeap. Because we filed early, when the system wasn’t functioning properly, it through up a hold code, and now they have to fix it.

    Then why in the world are we still waiting? ??? Because we filled early? ??

    @pooh pooh Yes. Many have reported calling IRS, and it was explained the 570 shouldn’t have been there to begin with. Being the health care penalty is new this year, the chance of this kind of error was great, and it has happened. System wasn’t set up right to deal with the penalties being deducted from refunds, and has since been fixed, which is why you won’t see a bunch of new people saying they have 896/570 together. There will be people getting 896 for the penalty, or a 570 because they have another reason for a hold or review, but the issue we have has been corrected for new filers. Now they have to reprocess and fix all of us.
