      If there is in fact a pattern at all it seems highly unlikely that it’s based solely on acceptance date alone. Filed on the 9th, accepted on the 18th and still in processing with a 2/7, married filing joint, three children, Pennsylvania, w-2 in hand, H&R Block, no offset, return filed same as always and never any problems. Post your details people and let’s see if there is some sort of pattern.

Same kids , claimed them their entire lives, live with us and only us all year. Accepted 1/18 at 11pm. Says DCN at the top but no number. WMR shows BY 1/31. Call center swears its done processing and will be DD on 2/1

      Filed with Turbo Tax, w2 in hand, was accepted at 11:56 pm EST on the 17th. Same kids, same job, about the same amount. WMR says still processing and should receive by the 31st. Never called the IRS other than the WMR hotline. Had fees taken out so it will go through SBBT first.

      A pattern to what? IRS had trouble with their system on everyone that filed between the 17 and 19th i believe. Think they lost everything and had to start over which is why the wmr says still processing and why they are late. Some people have gotten their refunds, but i think that is only about 30 percent or so. The rest of us are still waiting and waiting and waiting…..

      I think sbbt is the santa barbara bank and trust that tt uses when u elect to have your fees taken out of your return money instead of paying them up front.

      These issues and delays are issues are related directly to a new fraud detection and prevention filtration system holding more refunds than anticipated and more returns are being impacted then originally projected by IRS.
      The IRS has worked to correct this error and so they now believe refund timing ,for all refunds,including ARs will be on the following schedule:
      * Select returns were impacted on the very first day of processing on 1/17/2012.
      * Refunds from that first day which were expected on 1/23/2012 may not have funded yet.
      *Updated information indicates affected returns filed on:
      * 1/17/2012 are expected to fund on 1/30/2012.
      * 1/18/2012 are anticipated to fund on 1/30/2012.
      * 1/19/2012 are anticipated to fund on 2/1/2012.
      * 1/20/2012 are anticipated to fund on 1/2/2012.
      * 1?21/2012 are anticipated to fund on 1/3/2012.

      This is also the first time I ever had an issue since efile started. The pattern before was always something like it would show by a Tuesday, then change to DD on the Friday before, and the money would show up Thursday night.

      Filed 1/22/12. Accepted 1/22/12, TaxAct Basic, Chart shows 2/1/12. WMR shows by 2/7/12
      Republic Bank site shows 2/8/12.

      I understand the part about the 26th or before being delayed, but people filing after me but before the 26th are getting DD before I.

      UPDATE: WMR finally also shows DD date of 2/8/12.
