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.

    Your account should be listed. The amount may or may not be there. It doesnt help to email them. Every year I had my fees taken out of the return from Turbo Tax, I get my return the day the IRS states and not earlier. The worst part? It never hit my bank until later in the afternoon…

    Hey everyone. Sorry if someone has asked this already.
    Is there a disadvantage to having fees taken out of your refund when you file? I’ve seen that some people think it makes the refund process take longer.
    Thanks!

    Okay so I’m in transcript jail for 24 hours for putting the wrong account number for my car note when trying to access my transcripts online. Thanks to the group, I pulled my credit report to view my account number on it, which is apparently what the IRS is looking for. My 24 hours is up in an hour, so when I get access to it, what codes am I looking for? I’m path so I know the 846 wont be there yet, but what codes mean its processing expectedly?

    For anyone who has the emerald card:

    They have a new feature of pending deposits when you call the 1-800 # on the back. Not sure if this is new this year or not, thought I’d share since it’s new to me =)

    Stated refund pending for tmrw 🎉🎊

    @Janet: Don’t bother hun! First message this year was claiming money in Republic Bank last night. No messages in 2018 or 2017 by that name. A PATHer claiming they had both EITC/ACTC and received their refund(which is against the law)

    @Liz: They are very strict about accessing it now. Some people are permanently locked out. They don’t even allow them to be faxed anymore. I’m not sure if there’s any way for you to verify yourself to gain access or not.

    @Tfraz: Wage is almost always the last one to update for me. Usually not until way later.

    I have a question if anyone can help. I updated to the path message on Saturday with a processing date of Feb 18 on my transcripts. So is that going to be my deposit date????

    @Kimikaze: I tried to set it up and they gave me the same message, that’s when I tried to order them by mail. Then I was directed to call the number to order them and was told the same thing.

    So my wage transcipts say no return filed. But other transcripts are there, all the good codes except the deposit code. So is it bad that the wage transcripts show nothing, or will they update after the filing season is complete?

    What does it mean when you try to order transcripts and are told they can’t find anything matching your info? I know my info entered is correct and can view WMR without a problem.

    @it’s me mario: It’s possible it could slip by and you’ll need to amend after your refund is approved (set aside any money owed) or they may pull your return for a review because of wage discrepancy which can hold you up until they resolve it.

    @domdee2: Yes, so long as they can verify it’s him then they can re-send a PIN. If not then he would have to paper file without it again which can take longer because they review it more closely without the PIN
