• Tiff posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 months, 1 week ago

    Hello i am very new at this it is our first time doing injured spouse. We filed our taxes may 1st with a check date of may 9th. We where already approved and money was sent out it said but it was a mistake on website they took it so thats when we filed the injured spouse form may 14th sespertly. Ive tried getting the online transcript we dont have credit carx or anything i tried on the phone and it says it cant be processed at this time. Os there a reason why? And how long does it take tp be approved if its sent seperatly? And how do you know they even recieved it? I handed ot to the post office worker myself to make sure i saw it leaving. Hut lile everyone else we could really use the money right now. Thanks

    • Okay well you came to the right spot for answers. So when you e-file or mail in your the taxes and they have to come back pretty much it’s like starting over e-filing or submitting your taxes. So from the day you sent it it’s probably going to take a week to get to them and it might take a couple days for them to approve it. They already have your taxes now what they’re going to do since you filed the injury spouse later they’re going to pull back the money that they gave to whoever child support or schooling and then you will get a paper maybe saying hey this is what we done or you can just go check your balance or debt towards child support or schooling. The important thing is after 8 weeks you need to call the number that is supplied on the top right corner pull-down tab. That is the easiest way to get ahold of a person instead of a machine. You can call them today and ask them also but if you do everything that everybody else does and you file your taxes with injured spouse it could take anywhere from 8 to 14 weeks and some people have claimed 14 weeks it’s been 10 weeks for me and I’m supposed to get my money on Wednesday. Just remember you’re not going to get your money fast so know that it will come at some point and fighting to pay your bills now will help you out in the long run anyways by Saving you money that you’ll have in a few weeks. Good luck if that did not answer your question then please specify exactly what you need.

    • Pay it also if you have not gotten your state taxes because they took your refund you need to ask the IRS what you can do about that because there’s a paper that you can fill out to offset and get your money back and it doesn’t take that long so it might help with bills. I did it and got it back within a week it’s a whole lot faster than Federal.
