03/10/2021 11:03 AM 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.

12/15/2020 05:20 AM Sheila_33 @Ninastarsos: No, its not considered an amended return. They need the information from the 8962 to verify the tax credit. Since it has to be manually done, it will take longer to process. The Wmr did a refresh of the system over the weekend and most likely that is why a lot of peoples bars came back.
12/15/2020 05:23 AM Sheila_33 @Amy19: The 12/18 is the date the deposit/check has to be made by. So, fingers crossed, you'll see a check in the next week.
12/15/2020 06:26 AM AIntmybusinessbut... Two weeks ago the irs was ordered to process returns that were filed correctly before March 31st that ended up in the aqc department or exams. Not everyone can see bars so if that’s the case there is no system refresh yet, that will occur 12/19 or 12/26 Even the returns that has been paid out will be reset to 1 bar not just people that once had the path act message, I’m sure that’s the case. I tried to remain quiet but this is the wrong time of year to steal someone’s joy. If u are a Pather waiting to be paid out and the return went to exam just keep checking and don’t file so early next time. And only diy’s get sent to examinations and AQC. Stay woke...
12/15/2020 06:44 AM Ninastarsos Thanks...checked wmr this morning and now i have to put in her new refund amount to show status....still on 1st bar but at least i know they updated it and have received her form....thank goodness hopefully she gets a ddd soon
12/15/2020 06:57 AM Amy19 @Sheila_33: I guess I should not have assumed the amend refund process was the same as the regular refund. I thought the 846 12/14 date was the DD date. Isn't that the normal refund way? Hopefully the refund is here this month. I am thankful to finally have the 846. Thanks again.
12/15/2020 08:32 AM Stressedout2019 @AIntmybusinessbut...: I didn’t file early but was still audited for EIC. Have been in audit since March/2020. Had the same bland message until last Saturday it updated to a bar. I’m not hopeful at all because I was told this is probably a system refresh. But just because some of us are getting audited do not mean we a all filing early. Thanks
12/15/2020 10:02 AM Aintmybusinessbut... @Stressedout2019: never said u got audited just because u filed early, or if u file early u get audited; when u file early u are more likely to get chosen for an examination whole purpose for the path act ...I've only seen a couple of people on here saying bars returned and that's solely not enough to assume it's a system refresh so I'm willing to bet these were also returns filed at the beginning of the season. A glitch perhaps but highly unlikely---anyone needing to verify? Still has the still processing message, anyone due a refund but their wages are incorrectly reported---? Still Processing with TT152. Most people are under the same review time frame especially if they were Pathers and went into examination when the Path Act ended and have been waiting months, more so most exams end at the end of the year, simultaneously. So if accurate returns were filed or u have been under review all year they will put the return back into processing and allow it to be done in an automated fashion. Being so, your transcript does not reflect changes at the beginning of the process, but at the end of it, on Fridays. I ain't guessing. If anyone is a Pather and did not do what was requested then u won't update, that's a given.
12/15/2020 10:08 AM Sheila_33 @Aintmybusinessbut...: I disagree respectfully. Filing early isn't what causes exams. When that return is efiled and is sent thru the system, something flags it. It can be the wrong input of a social security number, missing information, change of address, etc. It has to be flagged by the system to not finish processing. For the last 5 of the last 6 years I have filed the first of January, and was processed by the end of January, sometimes even before the IRS officially opened, since they start processing the week before. I know because I can see my transcript in real time. The IRS encourages the public to file early, to avoid the chance of identity theft. The one year I was audited is because I had neglected to correct my address when I transferred information from my last return after I moved. As far as the system refresh, the bars for those that have had returns processed and received their refunds, will end up with no bars until their return is efiled and accepted the first part of the year. if your return has been put back into processing after an audit, and you can see your transcript online, you'll know you're moving again when that "as of" date starts moving again and pushes out to make sure that you are finished by that date and are issued a refund code. Not only diy's are sent into audit. I have know several people that have had their returns done by a reputable tax firm and have still ended up in audit. A tax firm goes by the information you give them and if that information is wrong, or the deductions are called into question, the system will flag it.
12/15/2020 10:21 AM Sheila_33 @Amy19: The IRS started accepting amendeds online a few months ago. I have seen one or two that have submitted their amendeds online after the original return processed and received their amended refunds direct deposited. It would be wonderful if they did that on yours, and I still would be checking the bank account, but I would also be watching for a check. It will be interesting to see what your transcript says on the next update.
12/15/2020 10:28 AM ChessRCheckers @Aintmybusinessbut...: What you said is holding some weight I filed Feb 2 and didn't update with path act sent in check stubs in October after getting into another 60 day review for the second job now I looked and got a bar back. my wife and daughter stuck on still processing tax topic but ain't been getting no mail all of us filed in the beginning.
12/15/2020 10:36 AM Sheila_33 @Aintmybusinesssbut...: You made the statement that only Diy's go into exam, which is incorrect. And not all returns that have been flagged, go to exams. Some go into 570 holds until whatever is in question, like income which can be reconciled with the SSA, or a 8962 is sent in, for example. The system gives itself 3 weeks to reconcile an issue from information supplied online. And again I stress, the IRS encourages people to file early, to avoid any identity theft.
12/15/2020 11:00 AM Aintmybusinessbut... @ChessRCheckers: yea and I haven’t seen too many Pathers that filed with an agency or a tax pro still in exam for incorrect wage reporting or failure to file a W2 unless there is something wrong on the tax pros end most likely a mistake because they are likely seasoned enough to do it correctly, glad u didn’t misinterpret I probably should have @NiqueBoo84 because that’s who I was addressing. But most pathers who prepared the return themselves that are still in exams got flagged for wage reporting whether it was incorrect or omitted. They are not quick to flag returns for wage reporting filed by professionals. My clients hardly get flagged unless they omit a W2 or I accidentally key in a wrong number but in those situations something wont add up. Maybe I worded it wrong and also people filing early has Pros and Cons because u can be resequenced which causes a delay. At this point the returns are collecting interest so they want to give u what’s owed
12/15/2020 01:25 PM Stressedout2019 @Aintmybusinessbut...: so do you think I might have a chance of getting my refund or just wishful thinking?? Because it went to the bar last Saturday. Do you think they may be done reviewing my EIC credit? Just asking your opinion? Thanks
12/15/2020 04:42 PM Sheila_33 From what I've found and understand, in December the IRS does a refresh of the system which reflects on the WMR mid month. For some, the bar will come back but, within a week or two will drop off again. It is not my intention to be negative, but I also don't want to build up hope and then see people disappointed. For some that got a bar back,, there is a chance it is positive movement, because the Wmr can reflect movement on the transcript, even if its just a date moving when the return is put back into processing. Unfortunately, at this point, its just a wait and see and hope for the best.
12/15/2020 06:03 PM @nika911 @Sheila_33: ya 2 of my clients got 1 barback and called me so excited and all i could say was glad theres movement wont sure what type of movement cus stuff been hazy againn this year. they still waiting and they filed back in january. so all i can say is good luck to all whos waiting. about that time again soon for the rest of us at the startign line we go. postively and manifesting before we get there... things may turn out better next go aroun tax year 2020...
12/15/2020 06:06 PM @nika911 @ChessRCheckers: facts 2 of my clients got there bar bakc on monday so it was weird and never see a change so the decemeber thing may be true i dont know but im praying for all whos still waiting this is rediculous man, already time for another round of the irs war. smh

All I can see is one bar saying my refund is received I hadn’t seen that sucker since February and then it was gone. I have never got a letter saying I needed to send info just 5 letters saying thanks for waiting were still receiving if we need info we’ll send you a letter. I filed with the Eitc or whatever that credit is. No audits no thing. I put single on my return lmfao if that makes a difference idk I hope not lmao. Anyone else have this similar happening? You are not alone LMAOO I have been stressed and waiting so long I had to delete the irs app I couldn’t keep watching it but decided to this Friday and I was happy. If I receive it this week for Xmas I will update. Merry Xmas everyone stay safe.
