    Just wanted to make a topic for people to go to when they have been put under review and share their experiences.

    Filed 1/12 HRB online. Accepted 1/30. I was processing 1/30,1/31, and 2/1 and finally updated to this:
    We have received your tax return and it is being reviewed. You will receive a notice from us requesting additional information within 30 calendar days. You may not receive all or part of your refund until we receive and review the information we requested. If you need more information after you receive our notice, call the number on the notice.
    Please do not contact us until you have received the notice as we are unable to take any action until then.

    I used TurboTax to file 2013 taxes. I decided to paper file because I have an Injured Spouse Form I have to do every year because my wife forclosed on her house before we got married.

    I mailed the taxes with the Injured Spouse form on 1/12/14. I got notice from Where’s My Refund that papers were received 2 weeks later. Next day, it said processing.
    Months go by, and no word from the IRS, no status update. My wife called and the lady said they have until 6/12/2014 to handle Injured Spouse Allocations. It is now 6/20/2014. 1 week after their deadline, my wife called again, and they said they were waiting on a document to be sent from another office (really vague).
    I’m still “processing”.

    Who is holding these people accountable? Why is this so difficult? I’ve been waiting for ages to get my refund and the result is I have now been sued, because I was planning on using this money to pay off some debts. Now I’m screwed! Thanks IRS, go suck an egg.

    okay so this is my first time filling, filled 02/11 got accepted the next day. months went pass so I called and they said no verification of employment and that I was under review. after the review time was up the guy I talked with sent a referral & told me to wait another 4-6 weeks. it is now near the end of may & im going to school in less then 2 months I was counting on that money to buy the things I needed for my freshmen year.

    Super User EPO39b…did you get a commission for that useless info you posted?

    I eFiled my 2013 return through H & R Block on Jan 22nd 2014. The return was accepted by the IRS on Jan 31st. I received a letter the first week in March dated Feb 24th that my return had been selected for verification and that I was to do nothing at that time and that the verification would be resolved in 60 days, at which point I should contact the IRS. 60+ days later I contact the IRS. I am informed that a referral letter will be sent to the IVO (Integrity& Verification Office) that they have ANOTHER 30 days to conclude the verification and release my refund. It is now the second week in May and I still have not received my refund. Every phone call to the IRS office takes 45 minutes of wait time to speak to a live person and then I am told that they have to wait for the referral to expire before any action can occur. I contacted the Tax Payer Advocate for assistance in this matter. A WASTE OF TIME. My humble opinion is that the Tax Payer Advocate is a Federally funded “hand holding” measure that does NOTHING that will actually benefit anyone.

    I was laid off 2 years ago and returned to college as a full time student. A significant part of my financial budget for this semester was that tax refund. Now I am behind in my bills. I owe friends and family money. My auto insurance has lapsed due to non payment. I got a title loan on my 2001 car mistakenly thinking that surely the IRS would not need OVER 3 MONTHS to make a phone call or ask my former employer for documentation. They proved me wrong.

    I am now a committed advocate to abolishing the IRS forever. The day that happens? Good luck with those extended emergency unemployment benefit forms you Jerks.

    Good luck folks! They pulled mine for 2012 saying it was under review, then sent me a list of info they wanted proving every penny of my income and other things – basically a very lazy way of auditing me. I sent it all in and they denied it. I called and was told that they are withholding the refund but are holding me accountable for the taxes. It doesn’t even seem legal to me. I sent in an appeal and have heard nothing. Now, just filed my 2013 taxes and it is also under review. I don’t expect much from them. Fortunately I just moved out of Michigan and never plan to return, but if I was living there I wouldn’t even bother.

    I filed 2/5/2014 it got accepted 2/6, when I checked the IRS the bar was on stage 1 and on 2/23/14 the bar stop showing and now all it says is Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available. There is nothing under notes. I spoke to a rep today and he said mine was pulled for review- it should take up to 8 weeks. So by April 18. 14. He didn’t say anything about red flags or a letter. This year I did file married joint and this is the first year me and my husband did it. SO I am hoping its that. I have no idea what else it could be. SMH it does suck that the IRS can take their time to issue our checks but are so fast to take every penny before we even see it. but I guess that’s life.. smh

    I got the code 1252 last year with the message of tax topic 152 and stating I would receive something in the mail and not to contact the irs until I did so. It ended up being a correspondence audit, over the EIC, which baffled me as all my prior returns the last few years have been pretty similar, but to give everyone a heads up I waited to receive the letter and it asked for documents to prove I was HOH such as bg&e bills, rent receipts, etc and to prove my children lived with my all year I had to get letters from their school and pediatrician on their letterheads (IRS was very specific about that)! I filed on 2/22, received irs letter 3/12, mailed documents certified on 3/31 and heard nothing back whatsoever and then out of nowhere my entire refund I was supposed to receive was direct deposited in my account at the end of July….yes the end of July!!! Needless to say I was happy to receive it but it was a huge headache and this year I have yet to file-I want to but nervous it will happen all over again, since I read stories about people having this happen to them for several consecutive years! Hope this info helps someone, I know last year this site was my saving grace while I was going through my tax refund hell! Best luck to you all!

    So I called 1.866.897.3315 on 02.18.2014 because I have not gotten a letter or anything yet but I do owe 400.00 in student loans now I was on hold for quite some time after being on hold the phone kept hanging up I kept calling back until I spoke to Ms. Parker I.D. Number 100161269 who advised me that
    Can not release refund because of the student loan from 2008 so they are going to pay the student loan off first then I should receive my return she did not have a DD but she was very helpful she actually called me back and told me to call this number 1 866.897.0177 so I called this is about the earned income credit that is what the recording says I was on hold for a long time before I spoke to Vincent Price I.D. Number 1002778713 who advised me that there is nothing in the system for me right but if I am selected for an audit and usually if you claim a dependent for the first time you will be audited then I will need to fax in additional information but he told me to give it another week to see if I get a letter saying I am being audited he was very nice and helpful..

    I am currently under review, my taxes accepted 2/15, received notice that i needed to send in ‘verification’ papers for the EIC/dependent credits, faxed them in and they received 3/13, called at least once a week to twice a week, its been over 45 days and they say it still hasnt been reviewed yet.All they can say is they get lots of paperwork and are still working on the ones from the end of February/beginning of March. Really?!!! Are they really that dumb or that understaffed. This is VERY frustrating as everytime i call they say it should be done next week, then i hear the same thing the week after, then they tell me day 45 it should be done. What BS!

    Spoke with tx advocate yesterday. She told me that all adjustments were made and the codes were put in to release my refund. She Said I should have a Ddd in one to two weeks. I really hope so but will not get my hopes up.

    I was put under “extended review”. I contacted the IRS and was told that I was under review. I was informed that I should expect a letter that would detail what is needed and the exact reason for the review.
    I received a letter 3 days later stating I was under review and that they needed nothing from me.
    I contacted the tax advocate line and explained my situation. She stated that I would be contacted in three days.
    Four days later (6 if you included the weekend), I received a call from a tax advocate.
    She stated I needed to provide proof of my employment with my claimed 6 employers. The Lady then told me to obtain 6 letters on company letterhead from each of the employers. When asked why the W2s were not sufficient she said they can be faked. I was also told that employers were given longer to file the w2 and that is why a lot of us are under review. Over the course of trying to obtain these letters (2 of which I was able to obtain) I found out from her that only 2 letters were actually needed. Unfortunately they were not the ones obtained.
    I am trying to keep this short but yet detailed. I am still battling

    Okay so an update on my situation. Reviewed for HOH and EIC. After faxing all my info and waiting the prescribed 2 weeks from the date the advocate sent it to irs review department, I got a phone call this morning saying that they approved my refund, that the info I sent was sufficient (33 pages). Now they have to input it back into the computer system and let it process, wait 21 days, which I think is BS because I have my return transcript with the full credit on it. I know that my refund has been processed and is awaiting them to release it, which I hope takes less than a week. TAS is a load of crap, I sent in a three day notice with my info and it has been 3 weeks already, the review department took the entire two weeks that they had to approve and now I am just waiting again. Seems to me they could have just looked at the info and released the refund by now. Guess I should consider myself blessed that I do not have to wait 45 or 60 days like some people are. it is hard though to consider oneself blessed when facing eviction. Next year I will definitely not plan on using my refund for essentials, then I will not have this problem.

    Filed: 1/30/13
    Accepted: 1/30/13
    ~$1100 return, EIC, no dependents, 1 W2

    2/1 – Still being processed
    2/19 – Status changed to “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.”
    2/25 – I haven’t been able to see the status on the WMR page
    2/28 – Finally called IRS and found out I am under review and could be for 4-6 weeks. Still can’t order transcripts. No letters received in the mail.

    That seems like a pretty long time frame to look over something that simple. I thought they would check for accuracy when they processed it, but apparently not. Hopefully it will be done sooner, but I’m pretty sure it wont.

    On a side note, I mailed in an amended 2011 return a week after e-filing my 2012 return and will receive a check for that in less than a week. Maybe filing electronically isn’t the way to go anymore.

    @ccs753 I think it is just a process as I faxed over all my docs last week and she told me she sent my information over and asked everything to be completed by 2/27. She told me we were scheduled to talk again on 3/4 but I could call her on 2/28. This to me sounds better than 60 days the letter is saying it may take. Hopefully it will all get done sooner for you.

    it is insane, I send over all information requested to the tax advocate, along with a 3 day notice to pay rent or quit. Then she asks for the letter the IRS sent me, so I fax that also, now the faxed paperwork they have received is 33 pages. When I call to confirm that she received the fax she tells me yes and she will send the info over either this day or the next and I should expect to hear from her by March 6. What part of 3 day notice does she not understand?? How freaking long can it take to verify the info and release the funds, my refund is already credited to my account just let it go already.

    How do you know if you are REALLY under review? F/a 1/30, had orange status bar until a week ago then went to processing reveiw date when available. Ordered transcripts 2 weeks ago, recieved them a week ago. That had a date of 2/25 on it. Not sure about any codes on there though. Called IRS Friday and they told us it’s under review, to expect a letter sent out on March 4th. Looks like a lot of you already have letters or notices on wmr but so far nothing like that here. Really frustrated waiting!

    Nothing new our Tax Advocate called back Friday. Wanted us to fax her a copy of our taxes, review letter, w-2, last paycheck stub of the year.
    So I got that all faxed over Friday afternoon. So now we wait some more.

    I have a question for everyone who got the CP05 letter.
    At the top does it say:
    Important information about Combat Zone tax deferment
    We’re holding your refund until we finish reviewing your tax return

    Just what the hell is combat zone tax deferment?

    good evening all thought I would update you on what’s going on: 2/20/12 received state refund… was able to order return transcript either the 20-22 unsure of what date now… 2/21 called finally and talked to a very nice lady… (asked to check if my DD information was correct) said I had a issue with my state being deposited (lie) she verified my info was correct then I asked if she could see a DD date. No she said that my return was on hold but couldn’t tell me why…smh then she asked if I received a letter on the 26th I stated no I never got a letter (lie)…. she told me to look for a DD sometime around the beginning of next month and it could take up to 60 days from the 31…..which puts it at about easter sunday… I have decided to give up on getting a refund cause at this rate it doesn’t look like I am getting one… WMR still says the same a refund date will be blah blah blah…. but if I get a change I will let you know… I’m done

    Hi everyone. So I am in the same boat as everyone. I filed on the 30th and then got a 4464c letter in the mail with no code. It was dated 2/5/2013. I did call the holds dept. and the lady i spoke with said there were no holds.

    For the whole time i was getting the generic 21 day message, but yesterday it changed to the will give me a dd when available.

    Well, today I was able to order a return transcript (finally). IDK if that mean Im done processing or if I am going to see a dd soon but just wanted to let everyone know my story. Hopefully I get a dd soon, then we will know there is hope.

    Just talked with Tax Advocate and she told me for 4464c to fax over my W-2, proof of hardship, voided check stub (for tax refund direct deposit), and last paycheck stub. Once she receives that today she will try and get a manual refund and have it within 3 to 7 days. She was way more friendly than any rep I have dealt with.

    they will holly…call came in as four #’s…like 4702 was the numbber that showed up on myphone..

    he told me it looked like they were trying to verify my income…last year, 2011, i started my job..had a little unemployment…total income was only 4k..
    well i’ve had this job all year…16k income…4x income, no withhnoldings..i never have withholdings bbut the increase in comne from the same job flagged me…guess i’m being punished for working more. Lame.

    I asked him about my dependants if hge wanted proof of them..he said NO!, only flag is income..

    My point is this..i have come to a conclusion…
    We all got flagged but for a reason, however small or pointless..The system is very sensitive i guess and change is bad, even if it betters your family..

    I have to wait and get a copy of my last years pay stub from are payroll department ikn another state..fun like a week i’m sure..
    going to fax him my disconnect notice though tonight..he said he would give this information to them in the morning and call me back..

    Same here I am waiting to speak with advocate tomorrow but faxed over W-2 as that is all I had besides my 2 kids … received 4464c dated Feb 1 but talked to rep today in holds department and she said that a freeze code will post to my account on 3-4-12 and last 11 cycles or until mid May. Told me best bet is to go through advocate to try and shorten the verification of my W-2 and employment and communicate directly to the reviewer or reviewing department. I have only had the same job for 10 years… and 1 child for 12 years and other child for 2 years. Should not take 60+ days to verify information.

    Processing since 1/31
    ordered transcripts 2/1 (both)
    Called IRS three times was told everything look fine just still processing /:
    Knew something was wronge seeing as how my brother I law filed last week and received his today!!!
    Called and spoke with a very nice lady. She told me my refund had been aproved but had a he on it. So she transferred me to the holds department and from their I was told they didn’t see anything! Was transferred back to customer service and hung up on. Called back this time straight to the holds department.. The lady I spoke with was really short with me. She stated my refund amount and that it had a hold she wouldn’t tell me why just that I should be receiving a 4464c letter then hung up on me!
    Recieved CP05 letter today (dated 2/25)!! Says they dont need any information from me at this time!! Looked at account and return transcripts and im noticing a date of 4/15/2013 on both of them… Account transcripts say
    Return due date or return recieved dat (whichever is later)] 4/15/13
    Processing Date 2/18/2013

    I posted earlier what my letter said when I received it. I have the take action notice under review….. If you are under review you will probably be getting the CP75 LETTER telling you you need to gather info and mail or fax it to them. You can go back and try to find my previous post or do a quick google search for that code so you can start getting together what you need. Goodluck everyone. Oh and I saw someone asking about 1242 and it means it is on hold and will be released when the receive the specific info they are asking for and if you don’t respond they will just stop the payment for whatever is being held.

    I am under review and was told my letter was sent out on January 31st. WTF, that early!? I was able to order both transcripts yesterday. I never received a letter and they told me they do not need any info, just to drew if I will get it by the 31st of March and if not they may need some more info. I filed HOH, 1 dependent and my pay had changed tremendously due to me finding work. I know my pay is the reason for the flag, but I have proof and hate that it is taking so long to let it go!

    I have been under review for 2 weeks, got my letter after I had contacted the tax advocate to help me out. i am being reviewed for EIC, HOH, and dependents. Yesterday I sent a 30 page fax to the advocate, including a 3 day notice from my landlord. Told her I had a week to come up with $3k from my $7k refund or would be taken to court and me and my 2 year old developmentally disabled nephew and 15 year old daughter would be facing eviction. She said it could take up to 4 weeks but would try to get a manual release of the $3k. Same exact filing as last year, this is such BS. for those of you who are really under review for EIC or HOH, start getting your paperwork together, and if you have a legitimate hardship get in touch with a tax advocate.

    It makes sense that they changed so many from the 21 day message to the processing. The 21 days are up this week for everyone that filed by 2/1. It would be stupid to see a 21 day message when its been 25 days or more. I wish I could look at it positively but I think it’s just the IRS covering its ass.

    @pb “1242 is a “reserved” delay code. The IRS does not publicize the reason behind it. There are many possible reasons but the EIC seems to be a very common area. If you’ve claimed the EIC and there is anything questionable about the claim your refund will be delayed while the IRS investigates it.”

    Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.
    Please Note:
    For refund information, please continue to check here, or use our free mobile app, IRS2Go. Updates to refund status are made no more than once a day.

    It has always said this. The only thing different is it now lists my refund amount on the bottom left and the info about 152 or whatever is gone now.

    Friday we were told our refund was done processing but is being held for review and this can still take until April >.< Talked to the tax advocate and he said he don't see anything different from the last few years he doesn't understand why we are being reviewed when even the income isn't that much different.

    @charity I found this…

    he IRS developed and implemented identity theft indicator codes to centrally mark and track identity theft incidents. Each indicator is input on affected taxpayers’ accounts using Transaction Code 971 with any of six different action codes.[5] The IRS currently uses these identity theft indicators to gather IRS-wide identity theft data for reporting taxpayers affected and identity theft incidents. For example, the IRS inputs Transaction Code 971 with the following action codes:

    · Action Code 501 – used when the taxpayer reported the identity theft. It is input after the IRS confirms a taxpayer is a victim of identity theft and resolves the case.

    · Action Code 506 – used when the IRS identifies and confirms a taxpayer who is an identity theft victim.

    · Action Code 522 – used when the IRS receives a taxpayer’s identifying documentation.[6]

    The amnt of your refund should have nothing to do with any holds unless its very different then previous amnts. Just cuz it’s a large number won’t raise eyebrows if your income is large enough to justify it & its not a great deal more then prior refunds. I know a number of people w $20K – $35K refunds and they have ALL gotten them already (EXCEPT ME,!!!!)

    just posting my timeline again:
    1/28 – filed
    1/28 – accepted 11 hrs later from filing
    1/30 – around 10pm finally got a status on Where’s My Refund (WMR) with ‘Return Received’ (1 bar) & still processing
    1/31 – ordered acct transcript but couldn’t order return transcript
    2/6 – received acct transcript & 4464 c letter (dated 2/4) & has no code on it whatsoever. it had no action required. Where’s My Refund (WMR) still the same.
    2/14 – wmr had no status bar but still the same msg w/return received.
    2/16 – wmr still had no bar but msg changed to Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available. i ordered another acct transcript to see if i get any codes because my transcript had nothing on it…it was blank w/a processing date of 2/18th. i still can’t order the return transcript.

    dudeexcatly..we were all pulled for filing earely..bbut my internet software, and allkthe others ones, need to take some blame because they should not have sent them before 30th..mine said they would hold till then, so i filed on the24th..they sent it in right away and fucked us all….

    they think its free money or they wsould be on it getting us money…they are a joke and they can do whatever they like..

    next week i plan on calling 3 times a day everyday to let them know that theycan’t just sweep me uner the rug..it will be long waits..but if we all overload theirphones maybe they get the hint

    That’s the catch. That’s what’s unfair. We weren’t pulled due to suspiscious activity, we weren’t even pulled randomly. It wasnt even a few of us. It was 99% of early filers. We were pulled AUTOMATICALLY by a sensitive and faulty system that could have been worked out before hand. The IRS could acknowledge this and do something about it but they won’t. That’s what pisses me off.

    Why was my return being reviewed?While most returns are accepted as filed, some are selected for examination. The IRS examines some federal tax returns to determine if income, expenses, and credits are being reported accurately. The IRS selects returns for examination using various methods which include random sampling, computerized screening, and comparison of information received by the IRS such as Forms W-2 and 1099. Having your return selected for examination does not suggest that you made an error or were dishonest.What if I did not file a tax return claiming the items you are questioning and someone else is using my name and social security number?Send us a completed and signed Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit.

    @chrisreal504… Weve all recieved different bs letters, mine said they didnt need any additional info and the irs also told me that there doesnt seem to be anything wrong with my refund… Kinda seems like as men we arent expected to have custody our kids and shouldnt be claiming children on our refunds… The bullshit is that my ex has a child with her bf and claims that kid with a different last name and same with a coiple other woman I know and they recieved thier refund already… No problem for me cause ny kids are registered in school under me, my names on all the birth certificate, I have court papers saying that I have full custody, and I recieve child support fot my kids so WTF is the problem…

I can see if I never claimed them are if someone eles claimed them are it looked like fraud yea check but when they get on the phone and say yea I SEE YOU CLAIM THEM EVERY YEAR AND NO ONE ELSE CLAIM THEM IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT PICKED RAMDOMLY THEY NEEN TO CLEAR THE MONEY I NEED THIS MONEY FOR BILLS THAT ARE BACKED UP

    Im so pissed I could blow a gasket… We dont deserve this bullshit!!! If they need proof of our kids then simply ask us questions instead of making us suffer… I truly believe that its just gonna get worse when it comes to helping hard working americans!!! Guess its time to quit the 9-5, get on welfare, get foodstamps, and get housing from the government cause it seems like the lazier you are the more the government cares and helps, they dont give a shit about the hard working tax paying middle class that actually TRY to provide for our family… SORRY, just all worked up cause I took a vacation from work based on tax season and promised my kids a “just for them” trip that I dont see happening now…

    I did talk to the examinations department as when I talked to refund holds department they said they did see a hold but not from them. I was transferred to another line where the guy said they were just going to verify some information that is stated on the 4464c letter. He did not know how long it would take though. The examinations department said it is not in their department as it is not finished processing yet even though I was able to order my account transcript on Thursday for the first time.

    Ok he generated a letter and said that we should get a phone call from the IRS on what they will need from us with in 3 work days (monday being a holiday) so we should here from them on or before Thursday. We shall see…….
    He didn’t see anything that would make them select us for review. Especially since nothing changed from last year to this year and we have a simple return.
    I asked about the April 11th date on the paper saying it would be done by then and he said some reviews wont be done until after that date :O what takes them so long?

    On the phone with the tax advocate. He says he doesn’t see anything they could possibly be reviewing. Our return is the EXACT same as last year down to a T. The income amount is only $300 difference and the refund is only $198 difference…….
    Now I am on hold while he does something.

    Okay to fix what I said previously. I got my letter today. Code CP75 tax year 2012 notice date February 18, 2013. It states: we’re auditing your 2012 form 1040A. We need us to send you information to support items you claimed on your tax return. We are holding the Earned Income Credit (EIC) and/or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) portion(s) of your refund pending the results of the audit. Be sure to respond within 30 days from the date of this notice or we’ll disallow the item being audited, and you may owe additional tax.

    Then it gives me a bunch of info on what I need for proof. Nothing has changed in the past few year which before that the only thing is a change of address 3 years ago. I just want this to be over and want my money but it looks like its going to be a while. Ugh!

    I have still received no letter. I have been told I am in review but not what for, and wmr showing still processing with topic 152. I filed on the 30th. I think things will start looking up for a lot of us this next week I think the irs is just behind….a girl I work with said wmr TOLD her she was in review last year…she never called the irs or recieved a letter. 3 weeks later she had her refund.

    I still got an advocate and sent her everything I needed to her today. (I assumed that would be the same information another poster on here was advised to send to their advocate…so I went ahead and sent it all to her even though we have never actually spoke I just missed her call yesterday and called her back and got her fax # from her vm.)

    I really hope this works out for all of us soon!
