FAQ

You can only guess this based on how you updated in prior years or by looking at your cycle code.  Here is some information to help understand how you can guess.

-New cycle codes are generated each year, based on several different factors.

-Cycle codes are related to the day transactions post to the IMF.

-Posting to the IMF does NOT mean updating on the Transcript or WMR.

-Whether you were daily or weekly last year will not, with certainty, mean you are daily or weekly this year. However, it can be a clue.

-Cycle codes ending in 01, 02, 03, 04 are absolutely daily accounts.

-Transactions on accounts ending in 01, 02, 03, 04 can post to the IMF on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

-Cycle code ending in 05 can be either daily OR weekly.

-Transactions on weekly accounts ending in 05 can post to the IMF ONLY on Thursday.

-Transactions on daily accounts ending in 05 can post to the IMF on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

-On a transcript, some transactions you can see, some you can’t. The IRS doesn’t show their whole hand.

-When transactions occur and post to your account on the IMF, MOST times you can see the transaction on your transcript the following day (transaction codes, like 570, 846, etc) and the WMR may update the next day (status updates, reference codes, deposit dates.)

-If your cycle code ends in 05, there is just about no way to know with certainty that you are either daily or weekly, unless you filed with an IP Pin (weeklies for sure) or someone from the IRS tells you. Good luck with that, you’d probably be told the wrong thing anyway by a rep. Hell, you might even get the wrong info from a Tax Advocate.

-If your cycle code ends in 05 you can only use clues to guess if you are daily or weekly.

-Dailies with an 05 and weeklies with an 05 just so happen to be posting together. They “share the day”, if you will.

-An easy way to remember the cycle of how things post and update is this:

Transaction Posts to the IMF on a day, the following day depending on the type of transaction…transcript might update, the following day…depending on the type of transaction that occurred, the WMR might update.

-If you updated on Saturday the 16th, it is likely you are a daily who shares the day with weeklies who didn’t update. This is disputed by many, but is the only thing that makes sense.

Most states allow you to file your State Return separately from your Federal Return so long as your Federal Return has already been accepted by the IRS, although there are a few states that have more specific requirements. For more information: File State and Federal Tax Returns Together

It doesn’t really. However, people use it to check what day they should expect updates on Transcripts or WMR.

Tax returns should always be filed using the necessary documentation (W-2, 1099, etc). If your employer does not provide you with a W-2 then you may request a substitute W-2 with form 4852.

“No. In some cases the tracker graphic will not be shown if your return is being reviewed prior to step two: “Refund Approved,” and instead an explanation or instructions will be provided depending on the situation. This can happen even if you previously checked Where’s My Refund and it showed the status as “Return Received” along with the tracker. In these cases be assured that we have your tax return and we are processing it. Please follow the directions provided by Where’s My Refund?. Otherwise, if we need more information we will contact you – usually by mail. If we send you a letter about your return, please follow the instructions in the letter as soon as possible.

This does not mean an audit.  Reviewed can also mean processing.

 

Yes, we have had reports from a few people that they received their refund and the WMR never updated from the ‘being processed” message. Though it has happened, it doesn’t seem to be the trend; most people get a hard direct deposit date as an indicator that they are finally through this nonsense.

Each transcript has a different purpose. The “return” transcript and the “account” transcript are the most common two. The “return” transcript is usually an almost exact copy of your filed tax return, whereas the “account” transcript will have codes that indicate activity on your account. Ordering transcripts by mail is not a reliable way to find out if you are done processing or to see if a DDD is in your near future. Click here to learn more.

Transcripts can update any day of the week. However, mass updates on daily accounts are usually Tuesday; and mass updates on weekly accounts are usually Friday.

The WMR can update any day of the week. However, mass updates on daily account are usually Wednesday; and mass updates on weekly accounts are usually Saturday.

Cycle Code Ending in 01= Friday
Cycle Code Ending in 02= Monday
Cycle Code Ending in 03= Tuesday
Cycle Code Ending in 04= Wednesday
Cycle Code Ending in 05= Thursday

There is much speculation about the “A refund date will be provided when available” message you may see when you check your Where’s My Refund (WMR) status.  Taxpayers report seeing the message when the graphic image of the WMR bars disappeared.  In 2015, an IGMR user posted the following comment; however, we were able to confirm their identity and the information may still be just a guess or tall tale.  You be the judge.

I can not give my name, but to shed a little light on every one. Our test batch consisted of 35,000 efiled returns. Every last test batch return has to be done processing before opening day and issued ddd’s to clear the system for incoming returns. If your bar has dissappered yu are completely processed so no worries. If your bar and return amount has dissappered either your being reviewed, have an offset or owe an debt.

Please see the various posts from our users about this topic old threads can be found on the Hot tab or in the forums.

jemar707311 (admin) said: Ordering transcript can only definitively mean you exist to the IRS. However, it has been a theory around here that after transcript success, you have made some progress and are likely o get a hard DD soon. But please keep in mind that it has also been reported that after success at a transcript, you could still be held up for various reasons.

I just don’t want this site to ever lead someone down the road of rejoicing or exploding based on us providing “definitive” type of information that could be inaccurate. Please if you are offering your advice or experience, whether it be re: transcript or any other matter, to ensure that you communicate to people that your comments are your experience or opinion. I want people to be able to come here and read everything, and then chew the information around to make their own informed decisions or theories. Please do not tell people “you should” or “that means”, without a disclaimer… lol

ma4pa.igmr (mod) said: I don’t see the need to order them one reason, its a burden on an already overburdened system. While it may mean you are out of processing it doesn’t mean you are getting DDD, in fact, your return may still have other issues, some who have their transcripts still have no money and no HDD, others have received a blank transcript with no info on them. So I don’t recommend ordering them. But the choice is yours.

Jenny on March 7, 2012 at 9:25 am. “Ghost” means that the IRS reps say the IRS has no record of you – that you don’t exist in their system. There were many “ghosts” here in February. One posted as “Casper’ :)

During the early test batch Turbo Tax was made aware of  the Form 8692 popping up on some of their customers returns while they were filing and it wouldn’t let them continue past this form and it wasn’t needed, at first Turbo Tax tried getting the customers to delete this form, but some found this option difficult and confusing, so they started telling them to just leave lines blank or to place zeros, after entering this info they were able to continue filing. However, once they were accepted by the IRS  and started processing through the system the returns started getting rejected. The production logs state they had a fix in place as of 1/22/2015. So we are hopeful this issue has been resolved. There were additional concern about people using other tax companies to refile instead of staying with Turbo Tax even though they were told by turbo tax their returns would be automatically resubmitted which could result in 2 returns being submitted. These people were concerned about this and we have been informing them if one goes in first the other return should be rejected. We were also made aware of a potential problem by our administrator’s source within the IRS of another issue with Form 8680 Here is the link:   Info Here

You should receive your 1098T by February 15th. If you haven’t received it by then you should contact your college or university.

Your IRS Account is identified as either being updated weekly or daily.  Cycle codes ending in 01, 02, 03, 04 are daily accounts.  Cycle codes ending in 05 are weekly accounts, but in some cases, they may be daily.

A cycle code is a sequence of eight digits that indicates when your account posts to the master file. It is NOT a calendar date, but it translates to a calendar date in which you posted to the master file. It is found on the Account Transcript and looks like this example: 20180605

It is an 8 digit sequence of numbers such as 20190405.

It is a day when a lot of Transcripts or the WMR is updated.

According to the IRS website:

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is Your Voice at the IRS!

The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) is an independent organization within the IRS. We help taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, such as not being able to provide necessities like housing, transportation, or food; taxpayers who are seeking help in resolving problems with the IRS; and those who believe an IRS system or procedure is not working as it should. Here are ten things every taxpayer should know about TAS:

1. The Taxpayer Advocate Service is your voice at the IRS.
2. Our service is free and tailored to meet your needs.
3. You may be eligible for our help if you have tried to resolve your tax problem through normal IRS channels and have gotten nowhere, or you believe an IRS procedure just isn’t working as it should.
4. The worst thing you can do is nothing at all!
5. We help taxpayers whose problems are causing financial difficulty or significant cost, including the cost of professional representation. This includes businesses as well as individuals.

A tax return transcript shows most line items from your tax return (Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ) as it was originally filed, including any accompanying forms and schedules. It does not reflect any changes you, your representative or the IRS made after the return was filed. In many cases, a return transcript will meet the requirements of lending institutions such as those offering mortgages and for applying for student loans. A tax account transcript shows any later adjustments either you or the IRS made after the tax return was filed. This transcript shows basic data, including marital status, type of return filed, adjusted gross income and taxable income.

These terms are thrown around when discussing the dates provided by the WMR. DDD was coined as “direct deposit date” because the language from WMR says something about “your refund will be deposited on XX” . You likely can count on it being close to the day you will get your refund. A DD (direct deposit) date however is used to describe the actual day you received your direct deposit.

An e-file PIN is a self-selected PIN used to submit your return to the IRS. If you don’t have an e-file PIN, you can use the prior years Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) to submit your return.

IP PINs are used when ID theft has been reported to the IRS.  IP PINs are mailed to you from the IRS and are required to be entered on your tax return. Click here to find out more about IP Pins.

WHAT DOES IRS REFERENCE NUMBER 9001 REALLY MEAN?

See what happened last year with people who got Code 9001:
https://igotmyrefund.com/?s=9001

Thanks to our friends at College Investor, here is some more information about Reference Code 9001

Excerpt

“….IRS Code 9001: “Taxpayer accessed Refund Status using a secondary TIN. Refund Status could not be returned. Get a Primary TIN Analyze account and follow appropriate IRM.”

The IRS has an entire manual dedicated to errors and problems that they encounter during the course of doing business. Some of these codes are directly related to your tax return, and some are related to you something else. For the most part, codes less than 2000 are related directly to your return. Anything higher (like code 9001), it’s related to something totally different – so right there, stop freaking out…..”

Tax Topic 152 from the IRS is a code you might see when you check the status of your refund with the Where’s My Refund (WMR) tool at the irs.gov website.  It is not an audit…chill.  What does IGMR think?  Tax Topic 152 is a default processing message that appears while your return is processed. No worries. Some people believe you get Tax Topic 152 just before you get approved for a direct deposit date (DDD), and some people receive this as soon as they get their status update on the WMR (Where’s My Refund) which shows their return was received, but whichever way you get it here is what the IRS.GOV says about Tax Topic 152:

Tax Topics – Tax Topic 152 Refund Information

Tax Topic 152 – Refund Information
There are three options for receiving your federal individual income tax refund:

  • The fastest way is by direct deposit (electronic funds transfer) into your checking or savings account, including an individual retirement arrangement (IRA);
  • By purchase of U.S. Series I Savings Bonds; or
  • By paper check sent to the address listed on your return.

 

Your tax return has been received and is being processed.

The Child Tax Credit reduces your tax liability whereas the Additional Child Tax Credit is a fully refundable credit.
Learn more about the differences by clicking here.

The difference between IRS daily and weekly accounts is when information posts to the master file.  According to the IRS Manual, daily accounts post within 4 days and weekly account post within 7 days.

Most taxpayers will fall into the daily “accelerated” processing. If you are in a weekly account, your refund will “post” within a week of being accepted and your DDD will be scheduled for the following Thursday. Account conditions that prevent accounts from being marked daily are conditions such as (the list is not all inclusive):

1. ITIN Accounts
2. Foreign Addresses
3. Campus Addresses
4. Identity Theft Indicators
5. Prisoner File
6. Related MFT 31 Account (e.g., Bankruptcy, Offer-In-Compromise, Installment Agreements, Innocent Spouse)
7. Criminal Investigation Activity
8. Civil Penalty Account (MFT 55)
9. Tax Module History (two years prior) with CI, Exam or Collection Activity

 

The IRS ACCEPTED status on Where’s My Refund (WMR) means your return has been received and that it seems to have passed a basic check for completeness.  During the basic check, the IRS also looks for red flags such as fraud indicators.  “Accepted” is usually the 1st status most taxpayers will see when they check the WMR, unless the tax return has been rejected.  We wrote more here about rejected returns. The initial basic review when you file your tax return includes checks by the IRS for things like whether your social security number has already been used and if forms/fields not completed or are missing. There are also other basic checks that the IRS uses. After this, your return will be processed and the next status is usually that a refund has been approved.

The APPROVED status on Where My Refund indicates your return has been processed and a refund is approved. “Approved” is usually the 2nd status taxpayers will see when they check the WMR if they are due a refund.  The status when your refund is approved will display a date that you can expect to receive a refund.

You may see these terms used on the IRS Where’s My Refund website or the IRS2Go App. Also, tax filing companies such as H&R Block and TurboTax use similar terms to describe your return status on their websites, emails and text message updates.”

The cycle in which the Martinsburg Computing Center (MCC) posts returns processed by campus and selects returns. The cycle is expressed by a six-digit code. The first four digits represent the filing year, the second two digits represent the week of that filing year (e.g., Cycle 201204 is the fourth week of the 2012 file year).

The Protecting American From Tax Hikes (PATH) Act is a law that was enacted in 2015. Part of the PATH Act affects those filing with Earned Income Credit (EIC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) as those refunds cannot be issued prior to February 15th.

There are many reasons your tax return could be taking longer to process than you expected.  Some of the common errors are simple mistakes.  For example, your tax return could be slow to process because of incorrect social security number(s) for any of the joint taxpayers or dependents listed on your return, incorrect address, incorrect bank information (e.g., routing numbers, account numbers), if you use direct deposit.)

Incorrect Social Security or taxpayer identification number(s). This is true for joint taxpayers as well as dependents listed on your return; – Incorrect address; and – Incorrect bank information (e.g., routing numbers, account numbers), if you use direct deposit.

Many phone numbers and refund site links are listed on our Links page. If you find that any of these references are not valid or you find additional numbers/links, please send an email to us at to update it for other users too.

The WMR and Transcripts can update anytime throughout the day. However, mass updates occur overnight between midnight and 3 am.

For daily accounts, there are 4 days per week that you can expect mass updates. Some are mass updates for Transcripts and others are mass updates for WMR. For weekly accounts, there are 2 days per week that you can expect mass updates.

Early Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

As soon as you have all your documents needed in the new year (as early as the first week of January.)

As soon as you have corrected the errors.

Everyday. Generally speaking, you can expect mass updates on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

If you have an eligible hardship and it has been more than 21 days since your return was accepted (or opening day if were excepted earlier).

If you received a CP01A notice from the IRS containing an IP Pin you should enter it at the time you file your return.

Transcripts will begin updating the first business day after 2/15 and the WMR should update overnight after the transcript has updated.

Typically, transcripts update Tuesday-Friday for “daily accounts” and on Fridays for “weekly accounts” with the exception of any federal holidays or dead cycles.

Weekly. Generally speaking, accounts that are set to “weekly” can see changes to transcripts on Fridays and updates to the WMR early Saturday mornings.

Amended returns must be filed within 3 years of the original return.

They are posted on the same day shown on the Where’s My Refund Tool (WMR).

It must be postmarked by January 31st.

30 days from the date of the notice.

Netspend releases refunds as soon as they receive the deposit. This can before the Where’s My Refund (WMR) tool even updtes with a Direct Deposit date. (Unless there are filing fees being deducted from your refund)

The morning prior to the date of the direct deposit shown on the WMR.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) receives information about your income.  It can be found on ssa.gov If income is displayed on ssa.gov, the only thing it means is that SSA has received information about your income. Not all income is reported to the SSA. Here is how it updates and where the information comes from:

–Wages reported on W-2’s are sent directly to the SSA from employers. Then from there, the SSA sends it to the IRS weekly on Fridays. If your income from wages is displayed on ssa.gov, the only thing it means is that SSA has received the information from an employer if you had a W2.

The amount shown on ssa.gov may match your taxable income, i.e. Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) on your return, but it might not match in cases where you had additional types of income or more than one W-2.

–In the case you had multiple W2s, it might not all be there until all employers have submitted the information to SSA.

–Or in the case you had additional taxable income, such as that on a 1099, the SSA receives that information differently than wages.

With 1099’s, those are sent directly from the Payer to the IRS, not to SSA. In the case that you are self-employed and/or you only have 1099s and if taxable income shows on ssa.gov, that means you are somewhere processing. It does not mean that your tax return is fine or complete.

Taxable income from self-employment typically doesn’t show on ssa.gov until mid-year.

Although some returns may be accepted into the test batch prior to the opening day of tax season, the “21 days” the IRS says to allow for processing doesn’t officially begin until the opening day. If you filed on or after opening day then your “21 days” begins on the day your return was accepted.

Tax Year 2019

The IRS usually begins mailing IP PINs in late December – early January.

IRS call centers usually begin accepting call on President’s Day weekend.

The C-Freeze placed on PATH accounts begins to be systematically released on 2/15 and updates will be seen on transcripts and WMR after 2/15.

The IRS officially opens on January 28th in 2019.

Any money owed for an offset is automatically deducted from your refund amount at the time your refund is approved.

The tie breaker rule is used when both parents try to claim the same child.

Only amend your tax return AFTER you have received your refund or when indicated by a tax advocate or letter from the IRS.

After 270 days of default status, an offset for student loans will be processed.

Your cycle code can be found on your “Account Transcript”.

TFI and NHB acronyms are now in our Lingo List to help people understand the difference and why some people see deposits earlier than what it says on WMR.

TFI: Traditional Financial Institution
NHB: No Hold Bank If you are using a TFI for DD and updated with a DDD on WMR today, you will likely have your DD avail on that day.

If you are using a NHB, soon after your transcript updates with the 846 code, you will see your DD (sometimes available in the evening on the following day). Examples of a NHB would be people using Netspend, Bluebird, AMEX serve cards for their DD. Another variation of a NHB are some credit unions. These show you a pending DD fairly quickly after their 846, but make the DD available on the DDD shown on the WMR.

 

Examples of NHB’s are Netspend, Walmart Money Card, some credit unions.

Santa Barbara Bank and Trust (SBBT) is one of the banks used by Turbo Tax for refund processing if you chose to have TurboTax deduct their fees from your refund. (Meaning you didn’t pay the fee with credit/debit card before filing). Your refund status can be checked at their site if your refund is being transferred from them: https://cisc.sbtpg.com/

Account conditions that prevent accounts from being marked daily are conditions such as (the list is not all inclusive):

Once your account is marked weekly, it can remain that way for several years or change at any given year. There is not a set time period that your account is weekly.

You really don’t. But, you can use the last 2 digits of your cycle code to see if your account is Weekly or Daily.

If an individual owes money to the federal government because of a delinquent debt, the Treasury Department can offset that individual’s federal payment or withhold the entire amount to satisfy the debt. The debtor is notified in advance of any offset action to be taken. Individuals may call (800) 304-3107 with questions about a delinquent debt.

Calling the IRS will not speed up your refund because the representatives on the phone for the IRS are not the people who process the returns. But you may be able to get more information if your refund is delayed since the WMR seems to be hit or miss or might be producing a code or message indicating that you should call.
