Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2020?

This is the date the IRS began accepting tax returns on January 27, 2020.

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.  This is an explanation and FAQ about when the IRS updates WMR and Transcripts.

The refund calendar by the College Investor is a good reference which has been updated for 2020 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    @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.

    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?

    @Lisa in Atlanta: I requested a supervisor and he refused to put one on. He hung up on me after i said I need a supervisor. I had to callback and this nice girl was chatting with someone above her and the lady would only allow her to refund 30.

    @Mbry0625: Yes. And they are telling us not to refund these unless you request a supervisor and even then they will try to give you maybe half back. We (Product Support I), aren’t allowed to refund any product over $25 as a courtesy. Request a level 2 supervisor and they can give more.

    @Lisa in Atlanta: Exactly what they did to me i think! They wouldn’t refund me for it. I didn’t even file with them yet. I am probably not going to either. They charged me 80 dollars just because I had my card on file

    Also a word to the wise about using the Turbotax product from a person that answers calls from them. When you go through the interview they put items like MAX and plus and LIVE in your shopping card first! You have to uncheck them to not get charged for it?! Please make sure you remove it.

    Is it a shady practice to try to trick you into getting something you dont want or need? Yes it is! You really dont need anything extra and that is why they are paying damages for charging extra fees.
