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.

    Now I have 424 code on my transcript with a date of 5/16. All after ID verify and told I was under 60 day review. I remember last year there was a glitch and 424’s turned into 846’s but I doubt this is the case. I will probably get a 420 next week. Good luck to everyone still waiting. Hopefully good news will come soon.

    @bunnhead77: Did she give you a call back date? Curious if your wages are showing up on the ssa site, that might give you affirmation that they’ve been accepted.

    Hi Sheila, I finally called for an advocate. They said my employer never reported my wages. She actually did it twice though because I asked her to resubmit them. I guess we’ll see what happens….

    @Mommyof3: So what happened with me was i got the 570. I got an advocate who told me it was because one of my jobs never reported income. She told me to amend to take the income off ( it wasnt that much money) and add it later after I got my refund. After my amended return was processed I was told my refund was being held because they processed the amended return twice ( they said they received two amended returns even tho I only sent one). After the amended was processed I got a 424 then a week later got 420….my TA has stated she doesn’t know whats going on

    Just an update! Filed and accepted on 2/14…changed a couple weeks after to the system not being able to find my info unless I entered single even though I filed HOH. On my transcript after being processed I had the hold code of 570. I contacted a Tax advocate who advised me to amend because my wages/withholdings were off. I amended for 2017 and 2018 around the end of March and it showed up on my transcripts on 4/8. They finished my 2017 amended before the 2018 amended and the DDD is 5/17 (mailed check). My amended 2018 return was put on hold again (another 570). I saw it and called my advocate asap and she asked them to release the hold last week. This morning my transcript updated with DDD 5/22 for 2018 taxes. Sidenote: I also contacted my local congress office so that may have helped speed things along.

    @Sheila_33: my advocate said the only thing that was in question was the Lyft job because they reported 2500 more than what I received they included the fees they take out for them in my 1099 I refuse to admend their mistake but she told me that’s the only thing the address situation was cleared but I guess this came up after

    @Sheila_33: thank you SO much for everything you do here!! People need to be reminded more on donating & utilizing affiliate links bc this saves us so much time, money & frustration! I had joined a few injured Spouse groups on social media & kept seeing either hateful, blatant lies or misleading info. I ALMOST didn’t accept being assigned a TA bc of the terrible, negative things being said in those groups but so thankful I followed my instincts & listened to you instead!! They said, “An advocate can’t do anything but send a letter to IRS for you, they never answer the phone or keep you updated & you give up the ability to speak to the IRS.” Happy to say their generalizations were wrong! My case hadn’t even been assigned to anyone the end of April, when I was referred to TAS. 1 week later my claim was approved (5/6) & today I updated to 846-5/24! Sorry this is so long, but I had to share! 🙌♥️

    For those waking up with those audit request codes, if you don’t have an advocate, get one, unless you can tolerate the wait time. More often than not, those 424s are switching to the audit 420 code in the next cycle. When you go under exam, your return sits until they can manually go in and verify and process it. Sometimes they request info from you, and sometimes they don’t and you hang in limbo until they decide what to do. Audits go in order, an advocate can pull that return out of the pile and push it to be processed. Last year, I went under audit the first part of February and along with 3 or 4 others, I half heartedly tried to get an advocate, but after a month, just decided to wait. It took 5 months to see my refund. The others in audit with me, some got advocates and saw their refunds in half the time.

    @Mommyof3: Something has triggered that audit. Did you have any changes in claiming the kids from last year? The income we know about so that should be getting taken care of with the advocate. I know you said you had a change in addresses and sometimes that will raise a red flag. Believe it or not, having an advocate is good right now, because she can get them to look at the return instead of it sitting waiting to be processed since they go in order.

    I filed 2nd week of February, electronically with IS form attached.
    The “where is my refund” site has shown the same code 152 for past 10 weeks.
    I called 8 weeks ago and was advised the date for processing was June 8th. Called again last Tuesday and was advised the IS dept hasn’t done their part and my return is just “sitting there”. So the person submitted a form to request it be processed aND said I should have it within 30 days but usually within 2 weeks…
    Seriously….

    Only change on transcript is the as of date to June 3rd. Getting conflicted answers as to whether or not the transcript updates with an amended that is processing instead of the original. TA scheduled to call on 23rd. All this crap should be against the law. Having your hard earned money kept from you. Aving to go through so much red tape to get it. So sick of this I don’t know what to do😡😠😡

    @Quick question..: What’s your mail date? I have the same question…My WMR said your tax refund is scheduled to be mailed out by May 21st… Does that mean they will mail before the 21st or on the 21st??

    @Momomof2: Go to Irs.gov and print out the 911 reqWuest advocate form, fax to the number provided. Note on the top of the form that you are having a critical hardship, and they should call you within 3 to 5 days with a local advocate.

    @TampaTiff: Last year it seemed like once it changed to “is being processed” a refund followed shortly after. This year, the message doesn’t seem to be leading to a refund date as quickly.

    I just got of the phone with the IRS I am now passed the 60 day mark for my 4464C letter and I was told my return has not even been looked at :-( was told a referral has been sent on my behalf since I have yet to receive my refund or another letter has been sent. Was told could take another 60 days. Anyone else in the same boat or have had his happen? Can’t wait another 60 days. Is it time to get an advisor? Any help would be appreciated

    @Stacee: Go to Irs.gov get forms. Print it out, fax it to the number provided at the bottom of the form. It takes about 3 to 5 days for them to contact you with a local advocate.

    I received the cp05 and the date was 5/2/19 for an answer or refund. It is now 13 days later with no letter or refund from the IRS. I called today and they are now saying that I have to wait an additional 60 days for another letter or my refund! This is absolutely unacceptable! They should know by now what is going on with my review and have some kind of answer. So what do I do now? I am low income and rely on the tax return.

    Hey I’m new to posting but not new on the site. I was hoping you guys can help me. I really need to speak to someone at the IRS but now everything is automated and I can’t get through to a live person. Is there another way, another phone number ? Help please.

    @Amirah23: Through the IRS, probably not…. If you have a deposit card (like HR Block, TT Card, NetSpend, etc) you could probably cancel your card/report it lost or stolen, then wait for the IRS to send the deposit and once it’s rejected they’ll send a check, but the whole process can take up to 12 weeks.

    Is it possible to change my refund from direct deposit to a paper check even though I got a refund advance?

    So I sucked it up and faxed a 911 form on 4/25 didnt hear anything back so I faxed it again on 5/2. My husband called on 5/10 and left a message asking did they recieve the faxes. I just recieved a call saying they did get my faxes and they sent a request to IRS on 5/8 to release our funds or communicate as to what needs to be done. Was told the IRS has 30 days to respond…. my 50 day review is over on 5/16 so hopefully they release it.

    Can someone help me please? i am setting up for my husband’s tax payments and it says this ” Direct Debit Installment Agreement ($31.00 user fee applies)”

    Does this fee happen every month that you make a payment, or just once?
