Let’s talk transcripts…
…and clear up some confusion about the cycle dates. The cycle date is the date you posted to the master file. Posting cycles run from Friday to Thursday. Friday starts 01, you skip Sat and Sun, going to Monday with 02 and so on and so forth. Thursday is 05. So, a cycle date of 20150402 means you posted on 1/26/2015. You add 4 business days to that and your DDD is 1/30/2015. Please be aware that an 05 could be weekly OR daily.

I filed on Jan. 23rd, got accepted same day. On Monday 1/26 I checked to see if I could get my transcripts. I could only get the wage and income one, but it was blank. All the rest of them were N/A. On Monday afternoon I checked again and the account transcript was there but not the other ones. So on Tuesday 1/27, I called IRS, they said my return was still processing. As of 1/29 I have one bar, no “return” transcripts, ONLY Account and wage and income transcripts available, no bank deposits.
