For all the people impatiently waiting on tax refunds.

A grapevine for taxpayers, by taxpayers.

Ask all of your tax refund questions.

The most frequently asked question we have is when will the IRS WMR update and what day are tax refund deposits. Use our calendar to find out what day you can expect to receive your tax refund.

IRS Letter 6419 and 6475

🚨 IRS Letter 6419 and Letter 6475 important for some tax returns to reduce errors and delays.
Check the mail for IRS Letter 6419 and IRS Letter 6475 to prepare your Tax Return. (Letter 6475 only applies to the third round of Economic Impact Payments.) The IRS stated information in the letters will help to reduce errors and delays. IRS started sending the letters to people who received the advance child tax credit payments and third Economic Impact Payments. The letter 6419 includes the total amount of advance child tax credit payments taxpayers received in 2021 and the number of qualifying children used to calculate the advance payments. The letter 6475 will help Economic Impact Payment recipients determine if they are entitled to and should claim the recovery rebate credit. The amount is needed to file tax return. Here is the statement from them about IRS Letter 6419 and 6475.

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2022?

The IRS began accepting tax returns on January 24, 2022.

Where is the IRS Refund Cycle Chart?

2022 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 2022 tax season (2021 tax year) have been updated with 2022 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.  This is an explanation and FAQ about when the IRS updates WMR and Transcripts.

The refund calendar by the College Investor is a good reference which has been updated for 2022 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    @May: yup. They are so quick to have us pay back if we owe but take their precious time when we are due.. Just hopefully we and the rest still waiting see our refund this year. I was expecting a huge amount too.. Sigh.

    @May: I understand. I know the feeling. This is my 4th audit. The previous have taken about 3 months. This year’s been the longest and only thing that’s changed was adding my newborn, I also didn’t take the advance ctc last year either.. So yeah I’d been checking transcript every night and nothing.. Only thing that’s changed was I finally received my amended from last year about a month ago.

    @May: Reviews/Audits go in order of received, unless an advocate pushes it to the front of the line. Since they received your proof of verification on March 4th, now you’re just waiting for them to look over what you sent, and then get your return put back into the system to cycle thru and update. If you are able to access your account transcript online, watch for that “as of” date to push out and stick. Once it does, then its possible they’ve got you back into the system. But, if nothing moves on that transcript, you may want to fax a 911 tax advocate request form to your local advocates office and see if they can get it moving again. If you already have an advocate and you’re getting no response, call an advocate supervisor and they can at least give you an idea what’s going on with the return. In Feb. 2018, I went under audit after moving and adopting my grandchildren. It took around 5 months to finally update. Good luck, hopefully you’ll see something soon. :)

    @Christina: You may want to call and see if there’s an id verify issue. When the account transcript doesn’t update, sometimes it can be an id verify issue or the return hasn’t been able to cycle thru and post to the master file. Something manually has to be done to get the return back into the system to cycle thru and update.

    @Christina – I know how you feel. I filed my return February 1, accepted on February 3rd. . . Delay message 2 weeks later. . . . . I only filed a 1098-T form. . Nothing else. . I’m due $894, but it’s still delayed. . . I received a notice on April 25th saying it could take up to 60 days for the review, and that 60 days is up (providing they don’t mean 60 business days). . . . I need that money badly, as well as others. . This is outright ridiculous

    To God be the Glory!! I finally received my 846 for 06/29/2022. I filed and was accepted 01/31/2022. My refund was placed on hold. For months I called the irs and received no help. All they told me is that if I think I made any mistakes to amend. I finally realized from the help of you all that my wages were not showing up on SSA but my job told me that they did report it. I was able to get a tax advocate through my congressman in May. My congressman asked me to send in my last paystubs of 2022 and w2s. He then sent them to my advocate on June 2 and I received my 846 this morning. This has been such a learning experience. I am a teacher at a public school l, I wonder if me working for the state had something to do with my wages not being reported🤔 Thanks for all of your help!!

    @Kendra: oh my! It’s so random. I saw a girl post her transcripts in a group I’m on and she filed the same month I did (April 2022) and got her amendment back and then I see some people that filed last year that are still waiting. It’s crazy!

    @Strugglinmommy: It’s possible you could see an update on the transcript within a week since they’ve released the hold. It just has to cycle thru and update with the 846. Congratulations, sounds like you’re almost finished.

    So, I got a letter from the IRS back on April 25th. . Said it could take up to 60 days for further review. . . Tomorrow is the 60th day. . . That’s not business days. . Does 60 days mean “business days”, because it didn’t say. . . If not, how soon could I expect a DDD? I only filed a 1098-T form. . Nothing else. It shouldn’t have taken this long. I filed on February 1, and IRS accepted on February 3rd, then I got delayed message around February 15th

    @BlacButterfli: call the advocate line 1877 number, let them know your advocate has not reached out to you. And the they’ll rather just look into your case (if there nice) or transfer you to the open case department. My advocate never reached out .

    Has anyone else had a problem with their advocate not contact them. She has a recording that she will not return calls for 4 weeks and she has passed her due date for her original call to me.
