    02/22/2021 02:31 PM IGMR Admin Grapevine Announcement ? When I see our longtime users acting up, I know shit is crazy. But we can’t tolerate people treating each other without civility and respect. To all...you might be a longtime user, but I also have a timeout corner which I’ll put y’all in if you can’t follow (the few) rules we set. If anything, we expect MORE of our longtime users, it sure doesn’t give you a license to act a fool. ~Momma Bear

Either choose to believe it or don’t, but do not call out others and ask them to provide it. *** Do not send admin emails of proof because we don’t make those calls...not our role *** IGMR is a grapevine of shared information between users and as such it’s up to you to take what you’d like and just leave the rest.

    03/04/2021 09:00 AM IGMR Admin Grapevine Announcement ? How We Moderate Comments (HWMC): PLEASE READ IT. 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. Here are just a few excerpts... --It might not even be your fault or anything wrong with a comment, but at our sole discretion we might even wipe out an entire conversation and you are just a bystander. --Comments that harass, attack individual users, violate rights, laws or any other comment we deem offensive and not in spirit with our goals may (read HWMC, that is spelled out) in our sole judgment, or upon request from other users, be removed. --Flaming is anything that is said or done that is insulting another person. All members are to be treated fairly. If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all. And, please hug a moderator! They work hard and often take a beating. (Thank you mods!!) You and them ARE IGMR. We are in this together. Like this comment if you actually read it.
    03/06/2021 01:25 PM IGMR Admin Grapevine Announcement ? Can we pause on the off topic convo for a bit please? We must remember if someone new shows up they need to know we are here for them. You can always resume when there aren’t questions going unanswered and it isn’t taking up the entire conversation. Cleaning up on aisle 1.
    03/07/2021 04:04 PM IGMR Admin ? Grapevine Announcement All of the information here is provided by taxpayers helping other taxpayers. It is comprised of experiences, guesses, theories. There is nobody here that represents the IRS and nobody that can guarantee you any updates. It's ok to hope based on what someone says, but don't hedge bets. Especially when said advice goes against what we have experienced otherwise....(we have been around doing this awhile). That's not to say we are always right, we absolutely are not. This year the WMR is all sorts of fucked up, so although we don't usually see updates on Mondays, we won't know until around 3:30am EST. Keep in mind, that this year many people have received their refunds deposited without the WMR ever updating with 2 bars/date. In summary, don't believe everything you read on the ? grapevine. Evaluate it. GENERAL REMINDER WHEN COMMENTING: Make sure you preface your ideas and thoughts with just that... "I think..." " Not sure, but..." etc etc Or, "my mom's cousins uncles half brothers babysitter said..."
    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.

    IGMR Hack is that you can drop a link to “search” results. For example if I were to type in “missing bars” in the search bars- this would be the results: https://igotmyrefund.com/?s=Missing+bars To do this you just have to do a search and copy the URL that generates in the address bar. You can use this to show users what others have posted using whatever key word(s) you entered.

    12/15/2022 11:51 AM Lalaa It's almost time again ?
    12/16/2022 11:41 AM Kira Hello!! I was wondering if Student loans were still on pause for this upcoming tax season
    12/22/2022 02:15 AM Azluckyfish @Anxious 1: Im getting one too from submission department what does that mean
    12/27/2022 10:49 AM Celina93 Hi I have a question. If your taxes were to get offset will there be a code on transcripts? I cal the offset number and it says I don’t have a debt..but I know that I owe unemployment for overpayment.
    12/27/2022 09:25 PM Melly @Anxious 1: I received a letter stating something about my records being accessed for student loans or something like that. I don’t have my letter anymore but that’s pretty much what it was.
    12/30/2022 07:02 AM Sheila_33 @Celina93: Sometimes an 898 code will appear on the transcript, but some debts taken will not appear on the transcript until a week or two after the refund is offset.
    12/30/2022 10:17 AM Celina93 @Sheila_33: oh ok. Thank you. I have one more question.. it says on 01-3-23 but it’s an amended return so is that the day they will mail the check or the day I should receive it?
    12/30/2022 11:28 AM TXBama @Assure: happy holidays to you too!
    12/31/2022 02:26 AM Helpmeplz Hello guys I know this is early and I may not get any answer but I owe unemployment and it says on wi unemployment website says my overpayment is subjected to wi tax interception but no to irs tax interception so does that mean my federal amended return will not be offset? I called the number and it says I do not have a debt at this time.
    12/31/2022 09:13 AM LoveMy3Munchkins @Helpmeplz: Gm. Unemployment will come out of state refund. I owed them years ago due to getting Unemployment while out after my leave ran out with my pregnancy and I eneded up having to pay them. I literally just got my very first state check last yr after paying them back.
    01/01/2023 04:49 AM Sheila_33 @Celina93: If it updated to that date last Friday, hopefully they cut a check that day and you might receive by the 3rd. Honestly depends on how quick they get things done considering the holidays and the postal service.
    01/01/2023 04:49 AM Sheila_33 Happy New Year Everyone!
    01/02/2023 07:49 PM Sharon. O Have they announced the official e-file opening date for the IRS yet
