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.

    @Vickylou: You can file previous years, but they each have to be filed separately, if that’s what I’m understanding you are saying. So, yes, you will have to start from scratch and just do 2018 tax year. If you’re using a tax software, like FreeTax, who doesn’t charge for Federal return, then you’ll have an idea how to amend the one you’re wanting to send in.

    @Sheila_33: I thought I could file 2016 and 2018s wages because I was told I could do that. I didn’t know you have to enter only 2018 so I had to do my refund all over starting from scratch. I didn’t get my federal so I don’t know why I owe

    @Vickylou: So, the income you turned in was short a w2 or something for 2018? And you also need to file for 2017? Not sure I’m following correctly.

    @Sheila_33: Yeah I never got my money I thought I could add my previous taxes. I can’t so my wages I had from a previous year and my TA called and said my wages for 2018 don’t match and that’s what is holding my refund up

    @Vickylou: If the income has changed, and tax withheld, then its possible you could owe. Go back thru and check again, maybe just a number entered wrong error.

    @Mommyof3: Can you call the national number, explain the situation, and perhaps they could give you an idea what to do. With it being a national company, all the financial stuff, records, etc has got to be going to an accounting division of the company, so even that number would help.

    When you file an amended return is it supposed to say you owe? My wages were off and I had to redo them and delete the ones I had now its saying I owe

    @Vickylou: The 911 form is a way to get an advocate, sometimes quicker than calling and sitting on hold for 4 hours, but an advocate can do an expedited hardship, in some situations, and the Irs can approve and issue the refund. I’ve seen 4 so far that had that happen.

    @DOT: okay for your car loan did you use the account number like if you log on to your app for your car loan that I know mine’s is like a seven digit number or if you have an Experian account or if you can create one they always use those account numbers that’s on the experience so make sure your mortgage account number matches with the one that’s on the Experian because they do a soft inquiry check that’s what they get the account numbers from you have to make sure those numbers match up with what’s on your Experian report

    @Mommyof3: I tried using the previous year’s tax info and it says it doesn’t match their records. I used the information for the return I just filed but when I go the next step I’ve tried my mortgage loan, my car loan and a credit card number and it always locks me out….this is so frustrating.

    I feel like I’m becoming a nuisance, but it’s about to drive me crazy! My TA was doing great at contacting me every 2-3 days and now I haven’t heard from her since 5/2! She put in the request to expedite my injured spouse refund and I found out the IRS closed my case & made the adjustment for the full amount on 5/6…. Any guesses to when I’ll see a check?

    I was on the igotmyrefund Facebook site and the person said IRS doesn’t do hardships. They said the 911 form is just to get a TA

    Just called the IRS again, The lady was so rude and disrespectful.. I continued to keep my cool until I finally couldn’t take it anymore. She kept saying your 60 days ain’t up your 60 days ain’t up and i kept trying to explain to her that the last rep I spoke to a month ago told me the SS amount didn’t match what was on w2 and that it might fix itself or call back to see if I should send something (if I choose not to wait for a letter) and this lady would cut me off again saying until the 60 days are up I can’t do nothing for you. Finally I told her to stop cutting me off and do her job and of course she didn’t like that so she’s like I’m hanging up the line now I’m like go ahead I’m gonna call right back and hopefully get someone normal because you sound angry and mad at the world so she told me that she didn’t have to wait 60 days like I do so I’m the 1 that sounds mad.. I’m like wtf?! I cussed her out and she hung up on me 🤦🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️. Yeah I’m done with this BS

    So the letter 4464c is on top of having to verify my identity? It took almost 8 weeks after I verified my identity to it saying my return is being processed. So the up to 60 days is on top of the almost 8 weeks?

    @Mommyof3: if an advocate will expedite, there is a hardship form she can submit and it take 3 to 5 days. Irs will approve it and you can manually update without having to cycle thru. Something to consider.

    @Sheila_33: hey Sheila how are you just a quick question so I finally talked to lifters see why there was discrepancies within my 1099-misc and there are form that they submitted to the IRS it seems as though the $2,500 worth of fees that were paid to lift for using their platform which means I didn’t receive those fees they told me that the IRS should have distinguish the difference between the two my intake person also said that she cansee that those were the fees that lives were paid what she stated was in a circuit box I don’t know but either way I’m just wondering cuz she told me that my ta will not ask me to send nothing do they do expedited funds she told me I qualify for expedited refund and also I did get the letter in the mail that my car was going to be so even though I have it back not going to tell them that and also my apartment gave me an eviction notice I did put my money for rent and a money order form and I did inform my management company what I was doing and that I was trying to get my refund sooner and she understood but she did tell me that I would still have to pay late fees I’m okay with that I just want my refund though so do you think that all this will work for me to get it expedited refund and how long do you think it takes sorry for the long message

    @SickOfTheIrs: Thank you. The transcript has to have a code to release the refund so I’m not sure why the TA told you otherwise. Since you amended before the original return even processed, there’s a chance it may not even update as an amended…. but normally a amended while processing will show up as a 971 and the definition will be an amended filed as original return. Its possible the 570 is a hold because of the difference in amounts and it has to be reviewed further and with you submitting the correct amounts, they should adjust.

    @Celinababyy93: I’ve never had this happen before either. The last letter I received was March 11 telling me there was another 60 day review. Which is up today. Who even knows what is going on. My return was very basic. The only thing that would prompt review is the Earned income/child tax credit. This is the first year I have ever had a review. Very frustrating and strange bc I definitely needed this money 3 months ago.

    Filed my taxes January 28. Received “take action” message on February 11. Received a 45 day review stating I didn’t need to do anything. Then received a additional 60 day review letter on March 11th. I have called the IRS two times and they state that there’s nothing I need to do. My transcripts have an as of date of April 1. My WMR still says “we have received your return and it is being processed”. I received my Ohio State return on February 9. I am at the end of my rope here and have no clue of what to do at this point. Any suggestions or answers out there?

    @Sheila_33: good morning. Hope you had a blessed Mother’s Day. I’m really confused…..so does the transcript work for an amended return or not?? The amounts from the original were incorrect so it never processed. We haven’t received anything from the original return. The TA said the transcript will not update but reading on here says it will. Which one is it? The only thing that has updated on the transcript is the as of date which is today: May 13th. I don’t have the 971/972 codes. The last thing on my transcript is the 570 code with the March date. 🤷🏾‍♀️

  79. Question..

    So after back and fourth the irs finally sees my state as a overpayment and will mail me the refund. They said in their system it shows them processing date of May 27th. Is that the date they will release it or is there just a random date they give and I’ll get it earlier ? He said if they held it past that date I’d get a interest refund so I’m assuming I’d get it earlier then that? I know it’s going to take a bit loger since it’s a check. I normally process weekly but not sure if that matters anymore since it’s a overpayment and not a tax return at this point ? Any help please

    This is my first year filing IS tax return. I attempted to get an online transcript but each time I attempt to create an account it says my information does not match and locks me out. I filed electronically and my tax return was accepted on March 8. I called the IRS and they stated that they could not provide me with an updated until after May 24. Is there anything I can do other than wait?

    Our Louisiana refund went to pressing pending approval for over 45 days to …

    The status of your refund is not available at this time. Please check again at a later date. If you filed your taxes electronically, you can expect to receive your refund within 45 days from the filing date. If you filed a paper return, you can expect your refund within 14 weeks from the filing date.

    Anybody have a clue?
