2020-03-01 11:15:22 IGMR Admin Grapevine Announcement ? FUN FACTS ABOUT DAILY & WEEKLY ACCOUNTS (that we know from your cousin’s sister’s best friend’s uncle/daddy. Or, from reading the IRM.) -New cycle codes are generated each year, based on several different factors. -Cycle codes are related to the day transactions post to the IMF. -Posting to the IMF does NOT mean updating on the Transcript or WMR. -Whether you were daily or weekly last year will not, with certainty, mean you are daily or weekly this year. However, it can be a clue. -Cycle codes ending in 01, 02, 03, 04 are absolutely daily accounts. -Transactions on accounts ending in 01, 02, 03, 04 can post to the IMF on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. -Cycle code ending in 05 can be either daily OR weekly. -Transactions on weekly accounts ending in 05 can post to the IMF ONLY on Thursday. -Transactions on daily accounts ending in 05 can post to the IMF on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. -On a transcript, some transactions you can see, some you can’t. The IRS doesn’t show their whole hand. -When transactions occur and post to your account on the IMF, MOST times you can see the transaction on your transcript the following day (transaction codes, like 570, 846, etc) and the WMR may update the next day (status updates, reference codes, deposit dates.) -If your cycle code ends in 05, there is just about no way to know with certainty that you are either daily or weekly, unless you filed with an IP Pin (weeklies for sure) or someone from the IRS tells you. Good luck with that, you’d probably be told the wrong thing anyway by a rep. Hell, you might even get the wrong info from a Tax Advocate. -If your cycle code ends in 05 you can only use clues to guess if you are daily or weekly. -Dailies with an 05 and weeklies with an 05 just so happen to be posting together. They “share the day”, if you will. -An easy way to remember the cycle of how things post and update is this: Transaction Posts to the IMF on a day, the following day depending on the type of transaction...transcript might update, the following day...depending on the type of transaction that occurred, the WMR might update. -If you updated on Saturday the 16th, it is likely you are a daily who shares the day with weeklies who didn’t update. This is disputed by many, but is the only thing that makes sense.

2020-03-10 12:01:01 IGMR Admin Grapevine Announcement ? The Social Security Administration (SSA) receives information about your income.  It can be found on ssa.gov If income is displayed on ssa.gov, the only thing it means is that SSA has received information about your income. Not all income is reported to the SSA. Here is how it updates and where the information comes from: --Wages reported on W-2’s are sent directly to the SSA from employers. Then from there, the SSA sends it to the IRS weekly on Fridays. If your income from wages is displayed on ssa.gov, the only thing it means is that SSA has received the information from an employer if you had a W2. The amount shown on ssa.gov may match your taxable income, i.e. Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) on your return, but it might not match in cases where you had additional types of income or more than one W-2. --In the case you had multiple W2s, it might not all be there until all employers have submitted the information to SSA. --Or in the case you had additional taxable income, such as that on a 1099, the SSA receives that information differently than wages. With 1099’s, those are sent directly from the Payer to the IRS, not to SSA. In the case that you are self-employed and/or you only have 1099s and if taxable income shows on ssa.gov, that means you are somewhere processing. It does not mean that your tax return is fine or complete.

Even our regular well behaved users, we have a special message in there for you and there are definitely things that need reviewed -- not just the regular rules you would see in most forums. HWMC spells out what comments get flagged either by our filters or own hands.

2020-01-01 12:59:06 NYnic @Goooo Gators: Last year my transcript updated with the 846 code on 2/16 and WMR updated on 2/17. My guess (if all goes well) is that transcripts will update on Tuesday 2/18.

2020-01-01 15:07:38 Sheila_33 @Mbry0625: Nice to see you. With the 15th falling on a Saturday I'm thinking the same. The dailies will see some transcript updates on the Tuesday following and weeklies may see some updates on Friday.
2020-01-01 17:25:25 Goodvibes @Mike: thanks

2020-01-02 10:10:24 Chris Hello everyone!!!!! Are y'all ready to go through all the panic again this year?! lol
2020-01-02 11:10:20 Mzb81 Happy New Year Tax Family
2020-01-02 12:28:42 Sheila_33 @Mbry0625: As soon as Freetax accepts it which I got notice today that it was starting tomorrow. Then just wait for the Irs to accept, lol. I would just as soon deal with any problems early in the year than later, but hopefully I won't have any issues.
2020-01-02 12:45:57 Ward Hi. I filed chapter 13 bankruptcy in 2019. My IRS code went from 520, to 521 to 820. I was expecting a refund, and already paid trustee a portion of that. Does code 820 mean it is being used to pay IRS debt? Thanks.
2020-01-02 12:47:21 Kathy090291 HELP! So I am interested in going to H&R Block so they can help me get a refund advance. I usually just wait to get my refund and I usually file on my own via Turbo Tax. But this year I REALLY need it by like Jan 15. Do I need to bring them my W-2 or my last paycheck will suffice? Also I am waiting to receive 1098T and 1098E but idk if H&R will need that. PLEASE HELP! Thanks.
2020-01-02 12:51:02 NYnic I will probably have our w2’s tomorrow. (We usually get them the first payday in January.) I don’t know whether I’ll file this weekend or wait...on the PATH again...so I’ll be waiting anyway. ?
2020-01-02 13:02:46 NYnic @Kathy090291: I think that H&R Block can start your taxes with your last pay stub of the year but I believe that they need the w2 to finalize and file your return. At least that has been my understanding of how that works with them. I would think that they would need the other info as well. They have two different options for getting money quickly (if you qualify). The option where the money comes out of your refund may not be possible until you officially file but they offer another option that's like a loan. I'm sorry I don't know what it's called either but it's a loan that you have to pay back by Feb. 15th I think. They normally send out that information around November for people who might want to use that option for the holidays, that option might be possible with just your last pay stub since you can get it without your w2 obviously since it begins being offered in November.
2020-01-02 13:21:54 Mbry0625 @Sheila_33: exactly!
2020-01-02 13:24:41 Mbry0625 @NYnic: Yes, she can go to their website. It will pre-qualify her. She should be able to do it starting Saturday. Just keep in mind this means you will pay the fees for them to file your taxes which sometimes are nuts. However, I don't think they're any fees for the loan itself.
2020-01-02 13:58:43 Matt H I can't remember: Does IRS issue the portion of your refund not related to EIC first and the rest later or is it all at one time?
2020-01-02 13:59:17 Nyc Can I use my sister's bank account for my direct deposit I'm also trying to get the loan from Jackson Hewitt will it go thru although I'm using her bank info
2020-01-02 14:18:12 Mbry0625 @Nyc: you would have to use HR blocks prepaid card
2020-01-02 14:18:46 Mbry0625 @Matt H: all at once. End of February usually.
2020-01-02 14:43:58 Kathy090291 @NYnic: hey, thanks for your info. I scheduled to meet with someone at H&R block this Saturday to see if I'll they'll be able to do an advance with just my last pay stub. As for the 1098 T and 1098 E, I pretty much know those numbers and can access all interest payments in PDF's from Sallie Mae. It's just a matter of will they accept that or not. It's a little farfetched but you never know. If anyone has anymore info. Please advise! Thanks.
2020-01-02 17:17:29 Vi @Matt H: all at the same time
2020-01-02 17:24:48 Mommy1121 I got my W-2 and still haven't receive. My other half of Jackson Hewitt loan. I called they said I have eto wait till IRS gets return. Last year i got w2 on the 3rd of jan and got my money in 1 hr
2020-01-02 17:52:29 sabrinak @Nyc: NO you cannot use some else bank account for a deposit
2020-01-02 18:03:46 BBkansas24 Good evening everyone I think I passed it but what is the date for IRS processing tax returns and what is the date for the EIC I know its February but wanted to know exact date so I can wait to file then. Last year I waited a while and didn't get money until first week of march because of the EIC so maybe that was the deal. I also filed early but I don't want to this year.
2020-01-02 19:28:24 Sheila_33 @Ward: Yes, an 820 code is a offset of a debt.
