Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2019?

The IRS begins accepting and processing tax returns on January 28, 2019.  According to the IRS, Where’s My Refund tool is the best way to check the status of your tax refund.

When Can You File Taxes in 2019?

Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the first week of January 2019.  You don’t need to wait for the IRS to start accepting tax returns to start, but you must have the proper forms and paperwork. Some forms are not available until mid January and some even later.  When you submit your return before the IRS begins processing, it will sit in a “queue” and be held until the date that the IRS will officially accept tax returns.  If you e-file early and it sits in queue, your return may be sent to the IRS early in a test batch. This has resulted in early direct deposits in the past, but also major glitches because they are tests after all.

Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

2019 Refund Cycle Chart

The most recent tax refund cycle charts have already been published. The official IRS tax refund cycle chart has been eliminated and replaced with an IRS Information Guidelines for the Tax Preparation Community publication and the IRS says the best way to check the status of your refund is using the Where’s My Refund tool. However, various websites with refund calendars for the 2019 tax season (2018 tax year) have been updated with 2019 direct deposit and check mailing dates.

When to Expect My Refund?

IRS Refund Schedule Charts typically show that early filers whose returns are accepted before the end of January can anticipate a tax refund direct deposit as early as the first week of February.  The day that IRS deposits refunds varies but we notice trends that help you determine the time and days WMR updates and when your tax return is processed.

The refund calendar by the College Investor is a good reference which has been updated for 2018 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    Anyone get this after their one bar disappeared:
    We have received your tax return and it is being processed.
    If we don’t get an update or deposit this will take some of us past the 21 day timeframe.

    Good morning everyone! I found this site this year and have been following along :) Just to share my experience this year (which is so different from last year), filed 1/31 via TT, IRS accepted 1/31, WMR updated the next day with “Accepted”, 1-bar status. Had the 1-bar until 2/15 when that and the refund amount disappeared the “still processing” message appeared. I’ve checked my transcript and can only access Wage and Account, which don’t show me anything except an “AS OF” date of 3/4 (no codes – says tax return not filed). I’m not EITC or Additional Child Tax Credit, but also don’t have any negative codes and no letters have shown up from the IRS. This is the first year it’s taken more than 14 days to received my return – it’s a little stressful, but the good advice here has been helpful! I don’t have a question, just wanted to share in case anyone else was seeing the same thing! Have a great day everyone! :)

    @ManOfGod: I think they will get it even before the scripts reflect it, unless they update tomorrow morning. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, because I don’t want to get stoned in the square, but it doesn’t make any sense to me that they would do that, they have millions of tax returns to process they’re going to want to get them out as soon as they can.

    Filed with TaxAct, Accepted 1/29, no credits, but this year we got married and filed jointly, no transcript available and my WMR bar disappeared Saturday. Anyone else already got their refund?

    Good morning to all I do have the still processing message but when I go online to check my transcrits is showing no return filed so hopefully this still processing is just a generic message

    Filed 1/23. Accepted 1/24. Had one bar for about a week then updated to the “still processing” message. Friday I updated to “being processed.” This is the longest I have ever waited on a refund and it’s getting so frustrating. The weird thing is I updated on Friday for both messages so I don’t even know where that puts me as far as daily/weekly. Can’t access online transcripts because it keeps saying my info is incorrect and they refuse to fax them to me. 🙄

    Something in my gut tells me that we are going to receive our refunds before the update over the weekend. I can’t seem them holding our refunds for another week and a half if there are no issues with them.

    So frustrating! Filed 1/24, Accepted 1/28, Updated to Path 2/4 and Path fell off 2/16 with the processing message left. No 846, no bad codes either. Just a bunch more of waiting. People who filed after me are getting DDD. So are weeklies just again waiting for next Saturdays update to get any news?

    @StressinTxn: my SBTPG still shows my anticipated amount and my Turbo Tax account shows me fully processed. WMR says processing with my full amount listed amd transcripts show all normal codes but the release code. I’ll be checking SBTPG mid week… it will update before WMR does, but I’m weekly, and that’s been the case the last 2 tax seasons for me.

    Personally, I think the still processing message is to let you know that even though a lot of us are at the 21 mark, your refund is not done being process. When it says is being process it’s already completed and just waiting on ddd. Basically some points it’s all the same and like someone said as long as you have no bad codes everything is good. Either way it’s coming, I have faith!

    @David10: That is the date something needs to be done on your return or it pushes out another week

    Hey! Morning everyone…hope this finds you all well. I have a random question. I am a weekly Pather, so obviously I didnt update beyond the “we have received, blah blah” message; nor do I expect to see an update until this weekend. My question is for those that have handled prepaid cards in the past. I have the Green DOT Walmart Money Card which is how I chose to have my refund deposited this year. Anyone us e this in prior years? And, if so, do you typically wait until the deposit date shown by the IRS on WMR, or is this one of the “lucky” cards that receive their deposits very quickly after the 846 hits the transcripts? Not that I need it, but i would like to know if I should watch for it so maybe i can give some positive vibes to you all once i receive it. Thank you all and have a great day!!!

    Hope not off topic. Does anyone know if Wells Fargo deposits early? First time I use them. I used this netspend card for past 8 years. They always deposit early. But.. I decided to try my bank account this time because the fees prepaid charge.

    Good morning! I am guessing the “elongated day” does not just apply to computer system the IRS uses but many waiting.

    I saw earlier where it was said someone that has not updated saw evidence of pending funds via the H&R Block app. Hopefully that is evidence everyone (well, most) waiting has stuff going on behind the scenes that just can not be seen yet.

    @Mr. T: and this has already been proven inaccurate due to refunds being issued for DD on the 22nd for a huge number of PATHers.

    @Janedoe: I assure you that the admins and mods gently remind everyone to not get too off track when they are here Nd see things getting off track.

    They can also see IP addresses and things others can not – such as who is changing names.

    @Jocelynn: I totally agree with you. I had funds in my account and WMR had that “being processed” message last year. I am PRETTY sure i am a weekly, but i never bother looking at my transcripts, so i don’t know for 100%.

    Use IRS.gov to track refunds. The IRS issues more than nine out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days. IRS customer service representatives cannot answer refund questions until after the 21-day period. But taxpayers can track their refund anytime by using the “Where’s My Refund?” tool on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go app. Taxpayers can also call the IRS refund hotline at 800-829-1954.
    Use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool starting Feb. 23 to track refunds containing the Earned Income Tax Credit and/or the Additional Child Tax Credit. By law, the IRS cannot release refunds that include EITC or ACTC. The earliest those refunds will be deposited into accounts is February 27.

    Ok, I’m still going with my theory that I posted yesterday… long story short, last year, I received my DD BEFORE my transcript and WMR even updated to reflect it. The prior year, same thing. I even received it early that year. My transcripts cycled and updated when they were supposed to. Even though I already had my refund. I honestly think the same thing is going to happen this year. The IRS just has to release and give the approval/release date, it’s not like the banks are looking at our transcripts, they are going off what IRS tells them. Who’s to say our refunds haven’t already been released, for funding this week, but because we are weeklies our transcripts only update on certain days so it’s not reflecting it.. JMO…

    @Janedoe: Registering is great because once you choose a name it will automatically post under the one name. It helps others too so they know they are talking to one person and not four.
