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.

    Hi everyone, I have been trying to fax docs to the irs for a few days now, each time it says “busy” and if I call the irs you only get automated service due tot he covid 19…and to make matter worse! my stimulus check was deposited into a closed acct. (which I closed months ago and updated my new bank info in jan. with I filed tax returns.) so now I have to wait on paper check which hopefully won’t go to the wrong address!

    I’m not one of those relying on this payment to pay bills. Fortunately I am still working. I’ve been working from home for almost a month now. However I want my payment bc based on the Act I’m eligible for it. Its very frustrating that you follow what they say to do and here it is a week later and no clue on when you’re going to see some type of payment. It’s BS. And there has to be someone held accountable for this shit show

  25. Hello

    Has anybody got their tax money refunded after it being taken for a student loan? I got a letter saying they would be sending me a check. Just wondered if anyone has yet to actually see a check in that case.

    If the people that put in their direct deposit information on last week are now getting checks that are dated the 24th, I wonder if they are holding off on DD until then too since the system was technically not supposed to be up until the 17th. I do not see updating one group and not the other. Makes you wonder.

    Guys, I got this from cbs news online just now:

    “That’s what Jason Hale, 25, of Oak Park, Illinois, believes happened with his stimulus check. When he tried to use the site last week, it told him his status wasn’t available. But he said he had filed his 2019 tax returns several weeks ago and received a refund. Days later the IRS website gave him an answer: His stimulus check will be arriving via direct deposit on April 22.

    “I think they just didn’t finish processing my stimulus money yet to be ready to go into my account,” he told CBS MoneyWatch. “I think I just wasn’t in that 80 million who got their payments on April 15.”

Mind you she goes to nationally ranked high school, takes Latin and violin and I’m looking at her like sis that’s out of my department. She is eating every 15 seconds. It just dawned on my our veterans service commission is open and I can go apply for financial help. Like, duh you’re a veteran, at least go get money for groceries.See my brain is scattered right now. Lol

    I just need to vent a little. Being a single parent with no help is already hard as it is and now this covid-19 just added to it. My small business has been closed since Mar 12th. Funds for small business loans ran out because big businesses got millions. Ohio’s portal for self employedd unemployment will not available until mid May so no help there and now waiting on a paper check for my stimulus. I’m beyond discouraged at this point. I cry at night when my daughter is sleep sometimes because this is all crazy. I just want my life back.

    @Simple: It really is so crazy. So many people counted on this money to relieve some of the stresses from COVID and it looks like people are going to be waiting forever to get anything.

    @Simple: I’m not sure how early they do send them but when they sent funds for 4/15, some banks/cards released as early as the Friday before. So its usually days before.

    @NotLoggedInGalFromVA: what if the deposit date is for Friday that would make the early cards get them starting wenesday right?

    @Sly35: so is it the tax places that will have our stimulus checks or they will be mailed to us directly from the IRS? and does it mean we will have by 24th or mailed on 24th which may not be the exact date as there are millions of americans who hadnt gotten anything yet. like me

    @Mbry0625: I’m glad you were finally able to log in. I dont know why it’s taking so long to update. I honestly think that they are not depositing until next week. I think them saying if you updated by Thursday/Friday, then you’ll have it within a few days, starts this week. Not last. We all know they send funds early to banks. We would’ve started seeing deposits already on early release cards/banks if they had actually sent these EIP’s out.

    @Simple: He is a filer and he got an update over the weekend. He said he didn’t check the GMP until sunday. So he’s not sure when he got the update. He did not do direct deposit on his taxes this year. He done check in the mail. So we went in on Friday and put his DD information in and had a update over the weekend.

    @KelH: I haven’t gotten any unemployment as of yet. Right now I’m owed three weeks. All the bills are paid up to this month but it takes one late payment to start the snowball to no return. I checked the transcripts, nothing. IRS, nothing. People are getting updates for the 24tg and the 27th. If I was making 70K I wouldn’t be so upset. But I make a lot less This whole experience tells me there is way too much red tape and bureaucracy.

    @Crystal: Did he do a new claim because she hasn’t been on unemployment she literally just filed about maybe a month ago and she did her biweekly claim about a week or so ago I believe on the 12th for the weeks before and she hasn’t gotten any payment or anything I just went in and it look like it allowed me to file for this week or last week for her but she has a email confirmation that she filed for the weeks that she was supposed to put in the system it does not look like she did anything it just says no payments and so foul your initial clean as she did

    Who knows what the IRS is doing at this point. Seems dumb as hell to encourage everyone to update bank info in order to get funds faster and almost a week later…no funds, no update, nothing.

    @Sly35: Really? Bizarre. Yes I’ve probably checked it twice a day (sometimes more) since last Wed. The app is unstable, some can access whether others can’t. Makes no sense at all.
