Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2020?

IRS e-file Open Date is January 27, 2020.

This is the date the IRS will begin accepting tax returns.  You can submit now and they will sit in queue until 1/27.

When Can You File Taxes in 2020?

Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the first week of January 2020.  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?

2020 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 2020 tax season (2019 tax year) have been updated with 2020 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 2020 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    @Blessed2020: I have seen some people in the test batches without the child credits see their refunds as early as the 1st of February. A lot depends on how quickly they get processed and if they are dailies or weeklies.

    One of my managers from my old job at the goodwill said I will be getting a 1099 instead of a w2. Do you think that may cause a delay? I normally just have w2s. This year will be w2s and a 1099. 😐

    Thanks, So more than likely these early acceptances without path are test batches? When will they receive their first approvals or ddd’s? 😪 @Mbry0625: @Sheila_33:

    @Nikki_1220: As long as only one was efiled, and its showing up on the wmr, then it will be fine. If the other two were efiled, they will probably be rejected and hopefully not be flagged for verification.

    @Mbry0625: I’m not sure about how that works exactly but I do know if a duplicate social pops up, it flags it. The IRS has a system of stages. And if something triggers a flag it holds and it won’t move to the next stage until it resolves. I’m just not sure if it rejects, or not.

    @Kimberly1: and to add WMR shows one bar and tax topic 152. Hopefully, this year goes better for all. But it’s on me a bit since I’m once again risking delay filing early.

    @Sheila_33: if you file in multiple places does it get rejected or can they accept them all?

    @Stheresa: When it’s accepted, it will say accepted. Also, you will probably get an email and text as well. When did you file?

    If anyone is interested, I Just got the email from turbo tax that my federal return was accepted. Wmr is on one bar “return received”. Guessing that means I’m part of the test batch?
