    Hey there, I’ve a question, might possibly will need some enable from you.
    I’ve been struggling with college a great deal lately and was searching to get a remedy.
    Located the webpage
    But I am not certain if it really is ok to use it or not, looks kinda fishy.
    What do you assume?

    #4195191 Reply


    This is incorrect.
    Thursday is 01, Friday is 02, Monday is 03, Tuesday is 04, and Wednesday is 05.

    The IRS week begins on Thursday and ends on Wednesday.

    I have a 570 code with a date of March 6, 2017 and a 150 code with date of 2/27/17 someone please explain what this means…..

    #4186110 Reply


    @e meister

    Instead of adding 4 days to your cycle date to get the DDD, you add 6 days to your cycle date to get your mailed by date, which I believe is 2/27/2017.

    #4183887 Reply


    I see how to calculate the DDD, however, what if you’re getting a paper check? When would they mail the check out? (mine was switched from DD to paper for whatever reason) – my code is 20170803

    #4179690 Reply


    another advice, also if you call the number, and then instead of wanting to get an update on your refund, I would listen for the option to check if you have any offsets.. once you enter your info the automated service system will tell you whether you have any debts or offsets, and if you don’t, theres nothing wrong with your refund and you should get an update within a day.

    #4179685 Reply


    p.s. I was not able to order or see my transcripts at all this whole time, but already have a ddd date for the 24th..

    #4179683 Reply


    hey guys, so I filed on 1/31 and accepted 1/31… I thought I would get my ddd on the 15th of feb, but never happened, but wanted to let everyone know the whole time I was waiting for updates, I never got them especially on wheres my refund website. but I noticed when I downloaded the actual app onto my phone I was getting updates right away. the first day I downloaded the app it stated received and still in process, literally 12 hours later it sated accepted and my ddd is the 24th… so if people are still having a hard time not getting answers, I would recommend downloading the app.

    I am set to receive my refund on the 24th of feb.. which isn’t bad considering IRS didn’t process any applications who claimed children until the 15th, so I received the best update on the 18th so it only took them 3 days really to go through a lot of applications that were filed early in three days.. good luck hope my info helped!!

    Can someone please help me??!!! Where do you see the code??? I see a cycle posted 20170605 and its says remittance 0.00? The refund amount has a – sign before the amount??? What does this mean ??? Please help !!! 😭

    #4177060 Reply


    I called the IRS and talked to a very helpful man. I was told of a DDD on 02/23. I am cycle code 20170605. Filed as HOH and claimed both credits and account transcript does have 846 code with a date of 03-06-2017. I’m hoping DD hits tonight! *fingers crossed*

    #4176818 Reply


    I’m not sure if i’m looking at the transcript stuff right. I looked at both return transcript (shows cycle 20170505) and the record of account transcript. on that one i do see 846 as a code but with a date of march 6th. does that mean i actually won’t get it until the 6th??? I filed for a friend 3 days AFTER i did ours. literally the only difference is his is head of household and ours was married filing jointly. both have 2 kids claimed and eitc. he has bars with a ddd of 2/23 (i haven’t asked what his transcript says yet) and when i check ours i get the generic message of its processing. no bars. am i reading the date on the transcript right or should i pray for an update on the wmr tomorrow? thanks to all who help out!

    Plz tell me why would I have code 810 which means a freeze and 811 meaning freeze removed the same day?

    #4175271 Reply


    I have the 846 code now but on the return statement it says any minus signs signifies a credit.. I had a minus sign and an amount before the code 846 showed up now i have code 846 refund released on 03.06.17, and the exact amount before code 846 showed up just no minus signs? Is that what I will receive on my return?

    I filed 2/4, accepted 2/4, updated to PATH then to return received and being processed. I checked my transcript just now and I have the 846 code with a date of 03-06-2017.. When do you guys think we’ll start seeing refunds? Why will take 2 weeks if the refund was already issued?

    I have a code 846 on transcript with date march 6, 2017, BUT filed and approved January 19th. Cycle code 20170402, WMR processing message today from PATH. Why would I have to wait until March to get refund when I filed early?

    If my cycle is 20170603 (with 846 code) when will my DD be?

    #4173929 Reply


    @Margaret Hyder: 810 was a refund freeze and 811 reversed the freeze

    @bonnie S Knight: That is the day you posted to the master file. You need 846 for your refund to be released.

    @samantha5947: 570 is a freeze code. The 571 code reverses that freeze

    I have cycle code 20170605, but no 846 i do have codes 570 and 971 notice sent. Last week I did receive a notice of deliquency tax form in the mail and am working on correcting that tax return.

    i dont think this is true my cycle date is 20170405 i filled the 20th and still no DD i have the EIC and gettign the PATH message

    #4168348 Reply


    I have path and received my return transcripts today. I have a cycle code and know no one with path is getting 846 until after the 15th.

    My question is, if I have no codes at all and expecting a refund, is there still a chance an offset could take a portion or all of my refund? (Ex-husband filed incorrectly years ago and attached me to a 15k debt and wondering if i have time to do paperwork if no offset or do it asap if I still have a possibility of offset) offset line says no debt, but they always do and always have an offset for small things.

    Yes, I have asked different places, but that’s because I’m trying to get an answer

    #4167953 Reply


    You are being audited 424. Then the other code to freeze your refund. 971 notice issued through the mail. Terrible news I’m sorry.

    Cycle date 20170505
    Codes I got
    806 w-2 withholding then amount
    766 credit to your account then amount
    424 Examination request with the amount of $0.00
    768 EIC then amount
    810 refund freeze with the amount of $0.00
    811 remove refund freeze with the amount of $0.00
    971 Notice issued with the amount $0.00

    can somebody please help me understand this? I’m new to all this

    #4167756 Reply


    @veronica: Without the 846 then the cycle date won’t give you a DDD.

    @casey: They probably had CTC which is not held. No one on PATH has received a DDD yet. Those that have claimed they have, have been disproven as mistaking the credits.

    I had two friends that woke up today with refunds deposited. Both had EIC, and I’m not lying about it. I too am waiting for my return so getting anyone’s hopes up isn’t what I’m into. They were shocked as well. Both sitting on one bar but, boom, refund hit.

    I mean, if I had any freeze code it would say in the same place as the refund code right. I have red through everything and did not find anything that seem to indicate I would not get it or it froze.

    So where is the procssing date on the transcripts

    #4167026 Reply


    I ordered my transcripts and received it in the mail today but it does t show a cycle date. The letter with it says in this letter we will report the status of the request we received. The request we received. We enclose the transcript for transcripts that you requested on said date. A tax return transcript is generally available for the current processing year and for three years prior. It contains most of the information from your original return, along with information from the forms and at requested on said date. A tax return transcript is generally available for the current processing year and for three years prior. It contains most of the information from your original return, along with information from the forms and schedules you filed with it. The transcript however does not contain changes made to the return by either you or us, after you file the return. Sex changes could include your filing an amended return, and corrections to be made to the return because we discovered a map mistake, or a payment credited after you file the return. The transcript also does not show refunds. Information for current tax years is available immediately on our computer systems, delivery times to you depends on how you submit your request and then delivery method used to like to receive the information.

    @wow just child tax credit. No eic or actc

    #4166986 Reply


    @jillian: The 846 is how the refund is released. No one on PATH has it at this time and I don’t really expect that to happen until the CAN be release (at least 2/15).

    @shinesta: Nope. No IRS/tax professionals here. Just using information provided by the IRS as well as experiences from over the years.

    I have a cycle date of 20170605…and my refund was deposited a couple hours ago! (netspend) Netspend deposits funds as soon as they are received. I’m thinking traditional banks will show up Monday or Tuesday…

    Thank you for being so helpful! Sadly, I merely have a list of codes that itemize each particular credit/refund. I’m wondering why no 846, aside from the obvious big update this evening and the PATH situation. Is there anyone with an 846 or DDD with these credits I wonder?

    Help please

    My cycle is 20170405 and I claimed EIC and child credit. Should I expect DDD on 2/15???

    #4166864 Reply


    @Question & Theory: I guess I don’t really understand what you are asking. The DDD for 2/15 has a cycle date of 20170605 WITH the 846 refund release code also on the transcript (and no refund freeze/hold codes). Here is how it is figured out:

    #4166828 Reply


    UPDATE: I was checking my bank account through the phone app and my bank shows me scheduled transactions.

    I saw my federal tax returned scheduled to be deposited 2/15/2017!

    My cycle code is 0605.

    #4166841 Reply


    The cycle date ONLY works with 846 refund release code. Those delayed by PATH do not have that and cannot use their cycle date to determine DDD.

    @Ryan Williams Since you have the 846 (assuming you don’t have any other freeze codes) your DDD will be 2/15- Congrats!!

    #4166833 Reply


    Why is my comment awaiting moderation?

    Anywho – checked scheduled transactions on my bank app. I’m getting my refund on 2/15. Cycle code 0605

    #4166830 Reply


    The cycle codes mean NOTHING if you have the EIC or ACTC.

    Just got my transcripts in the mail a few moments ago. My cycle is 20170505 which would give me a date of 2/2 (DDD of 2/8).

    The transcripts list 2/20/2017 as the “processing date” and leaves me with a prospective DDD of 2/24

    Not a happy camper to wait a month for money due to me. Filed/accepted 1/26

    8 wed ddd for 10 fri

    Did today spit out a ddd for 14 tue?
    Will tomorrow be a dd for 15 wed?

    Ok, here is a question. My Cycle code is 20170605

    I did get the 846 code, but the date next to the code says 02/27/17. But that also says that is the date the return was filed, which is not the case since I filed and was accepted on 1/31st. So should I still expect the refund on the 15th or does that date above inform the refund date,

    I filed 1/20 got accepted 1/23

    @kristen: Since you have the 846 refund release code-
    20170605 = 2/9/17 + 4 business days = 2/15/17 (which will your DDD). You can verify this tomorrow when WMR updates.

    @MinaMina: If you have 846 then you have to add 4 business dates to the cycle date. Your DDD will be for 2/15. WMR should update tomorrow morning showing that :)

    Also my sons code was 20170402 and he has a ddd of the 13th which lines up with what I’m saying.

    #4166605 Reply


    @Della: The source is there for you to check. If your son had a cycle date of 20170402 with the 846 code (with no freeze codes) then his DDD would have been on 1/27 which was the very first DD of the year.

    The 846 message is there. Is says 846 Refund Issued 02-27-2017

    @MinaMina: That is because your refund was not released (846). Please see the note attached at the top.

    Let me rephrase… The dates start from the opening of filing season. I could always be wrong however, I have never had a cycle code not post to that day using that method. Anyone else know? I’m dang near posative.

    My cycle date is 20170605…and no money today…lol. Thanks though

    @Della: The weeks are based off the Julian calendar and start at the beginning of the year (not from when you filed). This information comes directly from the IRS manual which can be found right on their website.
    IRS Manual
    Part 3. Submission Processing
    Chapter 30. Work Planning and Control
    Section 123. Processing Timeliness: Cycles, Criteria and Critical Dates

    This is not accurate information. The codes start from the day of filing. So… 20170404 is the 4th week after the 23rd and the 4th day so is actually 2/15/2017. It’s always been the number of weeks after filing. I don’t know if this will pan out like years prior. I have never had a cycle code be wrong though.

    @james: So long as the 846 Refund Release code is present. If you fall under PATH or have a freeze code then, no.

    @kimikaze thanks. Ugh I feel like I have been waiting forever. Hoping we get an update next week to WMR!

    So am I correct if the cycle date on the return transcript is 20170605, we should have a deposit around Wednesday?

    I filed w/TT on 1/23 was accepted same day. Got 4883 letter on 2/6 , verified my identity on 2/7. I was told my IRS agent that it would take 9 wks to complete processing. I was finally able to get my transcripts today ! Cycle date of 20170605. I am hoping this is a step in the right direction straight to my bank account finally ! Is this good news ? Someone please give me insight.

    @BDLotsoM: The cycle date code is when you posted to the master file (which is it’s original purpose). The processing date does not correlate with a DDD. Unfortunately, all of us on PATH will need to wait until the refund is released (846) and update on WMR after 2/15.

    So if my cycle is 20170405 but i’m stuck in this path junk, what does this mean for my code? It says the processing date is Feb 13. Not sure if that’s relevant.

    #4166488 Reply


    Your right the 846 code was not on there. So this means transcripts are not good this year with people with the PATH message. That’s means I have to wait till the 15/16 for an update

    @john: The 2/20 is the processing. With PATH the cycle date cannot help because a refund has not been issued yet (846 code).

    My cycle date is 20170502 from my transcript and the date on there is 2/20/17

    This is not true
    People with tax act
    Won’t get there’s till the 15
    My code was 0404

    Thank you, this is very helpful and confirms my thinking that the processing date given on the transcript is not the same as the actual DD date.
