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.

    So somebody called me ( it was neither one of the names I was given on yesterday) on behalf of my TA and told me my TA should call me on July 9th. She didn’t have any explanation as to why my TA haven’t called or returned my calls in over a month. I faxed all my documents to the TA over a month ago and the lady on the phone asked “well did you send your documents” UGH YES A MONTH AGO!

    Also keep in mind for a current year. The clock starts ticking AFTER Tax Day. So the 45 days comes AFTER April 15.

    @Ashley0913: 3 % per year after 45 days (after filing) which amounts to .000082 % per day after the 45th day depending on the final refund amount

    Ex: Refund Amount $10,000 …. filed 90 days ago… 45 days of interest is $36.00

    @Mommyof3: That does make sense since the amended should correct it. What blows my mind is the amount of returns that went into that 420 code while being amended, almost as if they were thrown into exam as a next step. A true audit is triggered by a combination of red flags that require further investigation but this year has not followed that pattern. You never even got the paperwork for the audit either did you? This has been one crazy year and I really believe it’s been because of those “fraud filters” that were flagging returns for no good reason.

    @Mommyof3: sorry I’ve been away. Family issues. Your situation is the most confusing I’ve ever seen. Did the advocate give you a call back date so that maybe you can get some answers?

    @Timothy: You more than likely don’t qualify for a tax advocate. I’d stay on them. One day when you call you will get an nicer person who will dig a little deeper and check a few things for you. I really hate then the IRS tells us to “wait” … then when the wait is finally over they say “we will put in a referral” which adds on another 30 days for someone to look at it. Best of Luck to you.

    Hello everyone!
    My wife and I submitted our 2018 tax return electronically and the IRS accepted it on April 4th. We’ve been told the tax return was processed successfully and that the injured spouse began its examination beginning April 11th. We have been told numerous times it would take 11 weeks from the April 11th date to process our injured spouse claim and the 11 weeks would conclude on June 24th contact us on June 25th for a status. We called to today and now there saying they actually have 11-14 weeks to complete it and they have no status to provide us. I feel no one at the IRS is credible and have no idea on how we can get a straight answer. All
    over their web site it states they have 11 weeks to process the injured spouse form if submitted electronically yet when the 11 weeks is up the move the goal post and suddenly it’s a totally different date. Can anyone help us?

    I filled my tax return electronically with the injured spouse form and everything was accepted on April 4th. I have been told the injured spouse form began its review on the 11th of April and would take 11 weeks to process. I have checked with the IRS periodically and they have stated my 11 weeks would be on 06/24/19 check back on the 06/25/19 and we should have information on refund status. I called today and they state it’s 11-14 weeks not 11. I feel I’m just getting the run around. My wife and I have done everything required by the IRS and they state all over the place on their website 11 weeks if you file electronically and 14 weeks if you file paper. We filed electronically why after 11 weeks do we have to wait longer. Can anyone offer any recommendations for us?
    Thanks

    I’m really starting to think, that the IRS worker’s or the IRS it’s self is commiting fraud on those of us who are getting the run around. Or we have all fell victim to fraud due to the IRS having been hacked. They are give all of us different stories and I myself..have been asked if I passed the ID verify. Which that was the very first thing I did back in Feb. I also have concerns of phone numbers given to me directly from the IRS worker’s. Stating to call the Tax payer advocate directly at a 954 are code and I call several times. Left the info the message states to leave, full name, social, and number and they will call back in 24 hrs. As of yet I still haven’t received a call. Haven’t been contacted by the advocate supervisor either it’s been a month now. I spoke with a male rep from the IRS, who said he doesn’t know what that number is, that the last three previous reps provided to me. That I should have heard something and received a letter. He placed me on hold a few times as he looked further into things. He said to me it didn’t look as if they processed my request for a new advocate at all. He put in a request for me, then told me to call only the number he provided to me if I don’t hear anything in five day’s. I sent my amended return certified, signiture delivery to the IRS. They have it.

    @Flipflop: yes I was definitely okay with the 45 for a nine of month but I had amended prior to that that’s what I’m saying I don’t understand what’s going on but when I talked to the lady on the tax advocate hotline she saidI’m doing speak to text alright but the lady told me that everything was fine it wasn’t going to delay anything that she could see the amended and everything she just told me that I was never audited they canceled it out and when I asked her why did I get to 4549 she said because they were initially going to do the examination but decided not to she said maybe I met whatever they was looking for I don’t know but she said they definitely didn’t do all that because there are certain colds that will be in the computer and been fully did the order or their end so I don’t know what’s going on that’s why I’m asking because this is something I never heard of first I was told that it was closed now I’m telling the still processing I’m lost it just seemed like a run around I don’t know what to do either way it goes I have money coming back all I want to know is when is it coming

    @Mommyof3: but the 4549 amount matches the refund on your original return? I don’t understand why you would get an examination report if you weren’t audited. Normally, if you sign that 4549 and return it, the adjustments that show on the report are made and that refund is issued. But then you have an amended return that sounds like it’s being processed by customer service, not examination. Not sure what to tell you would happen if you sign that report while the amended is being processed. Are you okay with the refund amount on the 4549? You could sign it, send it back and hope for the best. Wish I could help you more.

    @Sheila_33: we contacted the IRS today and they tell us we have a tax advocate. We call the TA office and apparently we have had one since the June 18th and no one has contacted us about it. We were told the week before that we can’t get one. The IRS is crazy this year.

    @Mommyof3: Your situation is really confusing. A Form 4549 is an examination report which you would receive during an audit if any changes to your original return are being made by the examination department. Look at the bottom of the second page of the form. Is there an amount like this (x,xxx)? Is it your original refund amount? If not, more or less than your original refund amount? Was your amended return to change your income? Does the refund amount on the amended return match the amount on the Form 4549?

    Long story short filed & accepted 1/29/19, Received a 60 day review letter 2/19/19. June 3, 2019 I faxed a 911 form to the Tax Advocate Office & I was assigned a really good TA. On June 14 received a 4549 form, I signed & faxed it to my TA the same day. I spoke with my TA today and he informed me that I will update this coming Friday & I will have my return next week. I called the Offset number and it said you may have an offset my question is wouldn’t my TA see that information?

    @Sheila_33: okay I’m really sad right now and upset so I looked over the 4549 form again and notice that that was for my original return so I contacted the tax advocate hotline in the lady was very nice and thoroughly went over my whole case with me she told me that she can see that they decided not to do the audit and I said are you sure because I definitely was told that I was being audited she said no I can assure you that they never did it they just closed it out on the 20th I said okay so what now she said okay so now I see your amended return and she said that it’s processing I could see that someone looked at it so it shouldn’t be that much longer she stayed and normally I can’t see what I’m seeing on my end for months but usually when I do see this processing the way that it is it’s not too much longer that you will receive your refund I said so what was the point of me signing the 4549 I asked her would that delay me and she stayed at no have you ever heard of this happening before

    Can your congressman speed up the process of your tax return . Like a audit or examination if you sent in proof to your tax advocate for your children residency and she haven’t called yet in 3 weeks

    @Londa: I sent my documents to my TA but I also faxed them to the IRS myself because I havent heard from the TA in over a month. The IRS sent me a letter saying they got them and they should be processed soon

    Hello Beautiful people. Just my continuous update. My timeline is starting to flow just like @Jenniedoo. This is her timeline:
    Sent requested documents for audit 5/10
    Received letter saying docs received and will be processed by 8/8
    Told she would get a letter to accept changes on 6/17
    Received that same letter on the same day 6/17

    Now for me

    Sent my documents in 5/30
    Got a letter saying they should be processed by 8/13
    Called and was told it could be processed sooner (hopefully as quick as hers were)

    So my Congressman just called me and sent me a release form to fill out and I did and I sent it back she told me that she was sending it to her tax advocate to expedite my refund .. and the wait continues I wonder how long now will it take now to get a release for my money.

    @Queenlexxi254: I have message after message and still nothing at all. I mean this is ridiculous I’m calling again in morning because someone needs to tell me something I was told when you send in documentation to verify wages and dependents the ta send the information to her liaison and the liaison processes the documents. I don’t know if it’s any truth to it but that is what I was told I did call examination department a week ago and was told they haven’t received anything from ta.

    @Kingpin: get the EIN number to the job. That was what my w2 popped up under. Before they kept saying they didn’t have it and when I gave the lady the EIN number all of my information popped up on the screen.

    For those of you whose waiting there is hope. I filed 2/29/19. Got a 45 day review notice about a month and a half later. Then received a 60 day notice saying they didn’t have w2 from second job. After calling my employer over and over and she stating that the its have my w2 I called them back. Come to find out it only showed up using the EIN number for the job. Thought ok now I will get it soon. 60 days was to be up on April 8. Received another letter stating give them another 60 days and to call back July 9th. I tried calling tax attorney but to no avail. June 10th received another 60 day letter stating they are waiting for my information to show up on their system. I called and was told that there is no such letter showing on their end so just continue waiting. June 23, 2019 wmr finally updated to a ddd for the 26th of June so hopefully the wait is over.. Good luck guys. If there’s a problem with them saying there’s no w2 for you try getting that jobs EIN number off Google, if the job refuses to give it to you, and tell irs to look it up through that

    IRS had not received the verified W2 from my ex-employer but I had all the documents needed and with the help of my TA got it sent in and was expedited. The TA was very helpful and I wish I had done it earlier because the IRS was doing nothing but letting my account sit and rot.

    Been lurking here since I efiled on 03/05. Right around the 100 day mark I took the advice and faxed a 911 form to TAS because none of my calls had been returned. 2 days later I had a TA, and now 1 week later I have my DDD for 06/25. IRS needed wage verification. Get a TA. Good luck everyone

    @Kingpin: call the irs and see if you can request a form 4852. You can turn in your wages directly on that form and they can accept it as verification.
