Where’s My Refund?

Where’s My Refund?

When does IRS accept tax returns in 2019?

The IRS begins accepting and processing tax returns on January 28, 2019.  According to the IRS, Where’s My Refund tool is the best way to check the status of your tax refund.

When Can You File Taxes in 2019?

Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the first week of January 2019.  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?

2019 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 2019 tax season (2018 tax year) have been updated with 2019 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 2018 here:  When To Expect My Tax Refund.

    @M2BSAAV: then you’re probably still a daily and just haven’t processed yet. Keep checking your transcripts. You might of had to cycle thru again but since you’re a daily it could update anytime.

    @Rod: Once they get ACH notification they post, if its before 10pm EST other wise after midnight…usually I believe for them. For Netspend probably between by 740 pm or after midnight.

    @Tigerlili_1: I guess I never realized. LOL That seems to be a theme today. I been here since 2014(2013 taxes), at least but I believe 2013(2012 taxes) was the first year and didn’t even know that you could friend some. I’m learning new non-tax things today.

    Just checked my checking account history. My IRS deposit hit my account on 2-22-18. PATHER last year and PATHER this year as well. Only difference is I was accepted this year on 1-22. Second round of test batch. Hopefully that means I’ll get it on the 16-18th. Who knows?

    @NyBeauty: trust me 9001 is really nothing to be worried about i know it’s easier said than don but it’s not it’s a generic code/identifier the irs use for multiple reasons but mainly when you have dependents… do you have dependents? It can me use for other things to but mainly that

    @Txmomof3girls: I believe amended returns are processed differently. They have their own guidelines on postings and such. I’ve never really dived into that part of the manual, but I vaguely remember there being a difference in how a 1040x is processed.

    @Montucky Kid: When the refund has been issued. The 846 is the refund issue code on transcripts and is what prompts WMR to update with a DDD

    @Kimikaze: I was weekly for 2 years (randomly) then over the summer last year had to amend my return and was kicked over to daily which surprised me as I figured ammending my return would have kept me a weekly.

    @[email protected]: it takes several weeks for mailed in returns. You probably won’t see anything for at least 6-8 weeks
