Has anyone that filed on 1/27 see any movement? Im still on 1 bar . Does seem like they arnt processing returns as fast as years past….And you can only get a mailing of your transcript now which sucks, that batch code really helped the ones who use them figure out a DDD in some cases before WMR would even update. Im thinking 2/12 for a DDD is realistic for this year.

Glad you guys were able to finally order a return transcript as well! I’m crossing my fingers we will finally get a DDD tomorrow for next Wednesday.February 12, 2016 at 11:13 am #4138602
I have no DDD, but up until this morning I was not able to order my return transcript either. I just tried it again after seeing your post and was able to order mine as well!!! Hopefully DDD to follow :)February 12, 2016 at 10:49 am #4138556
Filed and accepted 1/27. Been at 1 bar, and those bars never went away. Was able to order account transcript earlier in the week. But have been trying everyday since to order a return transcript with no luck. Even tried to order a return transcript this morning around 8am. And it said it was unavailable. But thanks to the reply from Emily below. Went in again to try to order a return transcript and was able to. That was around 10:30am eastern standard. Hoping that’s a good thing.
As someone said earlier I think most of us who filed 1/27 are going to be in the DDD batch for next week. Whoever said H & R Block said something about their return is expected the 17th. That’s probably because that’s the 21 day mark. But that is also possibly the DDD.
TurboTax took down the “% of people received their refund” graph I think because they got tired of people calling worried. I think they figured if they don’t tell you how many people filing the same day already received their return, you’ll worry less of when yours is coming, and they’ll field less calls on it.February 12, 2016 at 10:24 am #4138518
Filed and accepted 1/27. Still one bar, but was able to order my return transcript this morning. Previously, I had been able to order the account transcript a week ago. Glimmer of hope that some money will shake loose soon!February 12, 2016 at 10:12 am #4138499
Good news!!! I tried ordering a return transcript at 630am this morning, no luck. Tried again at 830am, no luck. Waited until past 9am central time, and was finally able to order my return transcript!!!February 12, 2016 at 8:57 am #4138384
I am still the same as you. Still amazes me! I wonder why TurbTax has taken away their percentage of how many people have received their returns… still a waiting game, I guess.February 12, 2016 at 7:26 am #4138327
I STILL have only one bar. Not able to order return transcripts. Also, TT has taken the number of people who has gotten their refunds down. I have until Tues to call the IRS. This is getting ridiculous.February 12, 2016 at 1:12 am #4138253
Burrr is for how cold it’s been every time I check wmr and only see 1bar also when ppl filed after me flossing hard buying cars and shit LoL burrr they gone be cold after these next updates so yeah Ladyshay burrrFebruary 11, 2016 at 11:37 pm #4138200
What the hell is a burrrr…..lolFebruary 11, 2016 at 10:47 pm #4138185
I’m Mr. Guwop Big Gucci and I’m part of the 27ers club not 26 and not 28 we bout to see some movement a bet ya burrrr…..February 11, 2016 at 6:08 pm #4138080
I filed on the 27th and was accepted a few minutes after. I used Taxslayer and yesterday (02/10) I finally got a DDD of 02/12. I checked with my bank and it turns our the deposit is pending. :) I know what you all are feeling. It sucked waiting for so long. Hang y’all.February 11, 2016 at 5:32 pm #4138062
So question for all my H and R block filers. When I logged in today I noticed something. At the top left hand corner it says:
Is that on anyone else’s? Sure it doesn’t mean anything but just wonderedFebruary 11, 2016 at 4:26 pm #4138028
In the same boat as everyone that is posting. I filed the 27th and got an email stating that it was accepted on the 27th. Called in to find out that I was not accepted until the 29th and I should continue to check WMR the following week as I have not even begun the processing phase. Awesome, there system seems to have absolutely no logic behind it. People I know filed the day before me and have spent almost every dime of their refunds that they received a week ago. I filed a day later and dont even have a ddd. I love how insane the system is. The IRS obviously lies through their teeth just to get us off the phone, but if we did something like that to them or told them to call us back in 21 days and we will see where we stand with their money then, OMG I would be calling family members for bail. I am beyond angry with how little info we get when we ask where our money is or what the problem is. I really hate the IRS. They suck.February 11, 2016 at 3:38 pm #4137998
I have no idea what to think. I would say weird, but there have been all sorts of convoluted out there in regards to the, “return” and “account” returns. I have no idea what to think when it comes to those.
Now that I know I am, at minimum, pushed back to the 19th and she did not indicate that there was a problem, I can breath a little (very little) easier. I’ll just keep waiting like the rest of us.February 11, 2016 at 3:12 pm #4137988
Yes, she took my personal info, so I don’t know how I got such contradicting explanations.
I was able to order my return transcript… Weird right?February 11, 2016 at 3:01 pm #4137982
Wow! What a story. Did the first person ask for all your personal information? That first IRS agent must have put your personal info in wrong. That is incredible!
That is interesting to know your times in reference to the second IRS agent giving you a processing date of 2/4. The agent I spoke with gave me a processing date of 01/29!
Which are you able to order; the, “return” or the, “account?”February 11, 2016 at 2:55 pm #4137975
I filed and was accepted on 1-27. When I called the IRS they said I wasn’t accepted until 1-29. They said there was nothing wrong with my return, just to allow more time for processing. With all the horror stories, I’m still not very confident. At this point, I will just be happy if I get my money this year!!!February 11, 2016 at 2:47 pm #4137971
Accepted 1/27 in the morning
Generic message that says its still processing, no bars, no DDD
I was able to order a transcript on Friday
Called using the error code trick. The first time I spoke with someone I was put on hold several times while she “checked.” First she came back and said it was because I filed an “injured spouse” return which I had not… The second time she said that I had forgotten a signature or had forgotten to include a schedule. I informed her I filed electronically, so it couldn’t be a missing signature and that I filed a simple return with 2 W2’s. She then said, “Well they will send out a letter to you Monday.”
I wasn’t happy with the response, so I called back. This time the lady said that my return was still processing and had not begun processing until 2/4!!! She said since it was in processing, she can’t even see any errors or info and she has no idea how the first person I talked with even looked into my acct. So basically, someone is lying, My return is simple and not large at all. But I want my dang money!!!
Anyone else had this happen?February 11, 2016 at 2:01 pm #4137954
I called and was told that my return is still being processed. I filed on the 27th got an acceptance on the 27th and then the first time I called said it was accepted on the 29th….February 11, 2016 at 1:26 pm #4137938
Well, I decided to take the plunge and call to try your technique. It sort of worked. IRS agent was extremely rude, but none the less, she stated that they accepted it on the 29th; even though I got the email on the 27th. I explained it the way you said to and still got the response of I needed to wait the 21 days. Which now pushes me back to the 19th. Got to love the IRS.
Don’t be an IRS agent if your going to be rude and inconsiderate to the citizens that pay their taxes. Just my opinion, of course.February 11, 2016 at 1:09 pm #4137923
I filed my refund thru Turbo Tax on 1/27 around 2pm eastern time. My husband called IRS (no idea who he spoke with) and that person told him they didn’t actually receive my stuff til 1/29. At this point he adv it wasn’t even being worked on yet — at least that’s my case. still no DDD lol.February 11, 2016 at 12:53 pm #4137915
I finally got a DDD for 2/12 I had one bar then disappeared with Topic 152 for 9 days. When I checked WMR i found out there was a math error on my return regarding EIC figures but all in all I’m still getting refunded in less than 21 days! Hang in there everybody!February 11, 2016 at 12:51 pm #4137914
They already knew it was an error and they corrected it on there end. They only advised me of this being the reason of the delay because told him that the WMR informed me to call.
Good thing is if you tell them WMR has an error code and told you to call, the most they can do is check for the error and if you dont have any, they just say that may be a glitch but you dont have any erros and you return is just processing.
Or they review the account and inform you of the error that is actually on your return.
Its win win because you get the information or reason behind the delay either way. The plus is if you actually have an error, your made aware of it earlier than waiting the whole 21 days abd may even get a projected date.February 11, 2016 at 12:47 pm #4137910
Confirming you filed at 11:00 PM?February 11, 2016 at 12:45 pm #4137908
It definietly depends on who you get. Its a centralized line so each time you call you are being sent to another office in another state. It depends on the person you get. Dont give up, thats what they want. Even if they say that in there system it shows it wasnt accepted until the 29th, let them know that you still filed 20th and regardless the WMR advised you to call in so thats what you are doing. Inform them why would it state to call them if you are telling me I have to wait longer. Push the issue as if the WMR actually advised you to do this. Dont give in. let them know i understand that it shows in your system that it was accepted on the 29th or 27th or whatever, nut per the WMR i was advised to give you call regarding the error code. Let them know you are unable to go back in to get the code because of to many attempts. Some people on other threads has a lot of luck with this.
I am still not able to order transcripts. Since he did give me a projected date I am going to have my fingers crossed that it updates tomorrow. I have read on other threads where people got the deposit last Saturday. There were also threads of people who received their refund without WMR updating or being able to order transcripts. i guess it is hit or miss.
I didnt actually have an error nor was I locked out. I just said that so that he could pull the file. Because i told him i didnt write the error code he was forced to check for the errors.February 11, 2016 at 12:36 pm #4137901
I just called and the lady said that it wasn’t until the 29th I was accepted but I got the text message on the 27th and the email from Turbo Tax. She wouldn’t give me information because my 21 days werent up . I am calling back.February 11, 2016 at 12:32 pm #4137896
@bReal I filed 1/27 at 11:00 they accepted it at 11:34 same day what I think has happened is that everyone who filed after a certain time that day was pushed to acceptance 1/29 that’s how long it takes to verify everything I’m guessing! I did read somewhere though, that if you file after 11:30 am that it wouldn’t be accepted until the following day but I don’t think it’s true I think it’s just where your return lands and who processes it ! My hubby and I file the 31st every year and never get ours until between 14th and 19th!February 11, 2016 at 12:07 pm #4137881
Filed the 25th accepted the 27th but irs accepted the 29th. 1 bar no transcripts tt152. When i called They said They saw no issues so now im just hoping i get a ddd soonFebruary 11, 2016 at 12:01 pm #4137875
@ladiishay were you able to order return transcripts?February 11, 2016 at 11:47 am #4137869
As in it took the phone call for them to realize it, or they already knew there was an error and was just advising you of it?February 11, 2016 at 11:42 am #4137865
I filed 1/27 around 8pm and was accepted around 10pm same day. Still at 1 bar with tax topic 152, can order account transcript but not return. Filed jointly with 2 kids, aoc, EIC, and early pension withdrawal.February 11, 2016 at 11:41 am #4137863
But anit 2/13 Saturday and if so I didn’t get dd I hv it coming to my tax office could it update tonight and I get it Friday the 17th is my 21 daysFebruary 11, 2016 at 11:36 am #4137860
I submitted efile 1/27 about 8:30am and accepted notification about 11:30 am.
When i called IRS before they also stated mine wasnt accepted until the 29th. What i think is the system accepted it but it didnt initate processing until the 29th. i take it due to extra security measures, it took from the 27th -29th to verify validity as fars as bday ssn ect. after that i guess they began to process which was the 29th….
Called irs today, they stated my delay was an error that they were able to correct and I have a projected date of 2/13February 11, 2016 at 11:14 am #4137834
Filed and accepted 1/27
Stuck at one bar
Still no DDD
Unable to order transcriptsFebruary 11, 2016 at 10:47 am #4137804
Still no update and didnt make the DDD for the 16th. That is 20 days after filing. So I dont know what game they are playingFebruary 11, 2016 at 10:45 am #4137803
Just for reference; I sent E-filed at 7:50 pm and was sent my acceptance email at 8:04 pm on 01/27.
I am interested to know who has NOT received their return and submitted their returns around the same time as myself. Maybe we can collaborate a time frame to show why some of ours was actually accepted on the 29th even though we received an email stating it was accepted on the 27th.February 11, 2016 at 10:40 am #4137794
What was your approximate time of submission of your tax return? About how much longer after that were you sent the email of acceptance?
I still only have one bar. Nothing has happened since receiving the acceptance email.February 11, 2016 at 10:33 am #4137788
I filed 1/27 wmr said received 1/27 called irs they said they received it 1/29 ugh!!!February 11, 2016 at 10:05 am #4137764
Hey, as i stated, the guy informed me from IRS being able to see the bar nor loosing the bar doesnt mean anything. your browser can be different from someone else’s, or just a system glitch. SO if you have the bars or not, it means nothing.
However, regarding your delay, I would definetly do what i did to get answers. Call the number and tell them you received an error and was told to call. Tell them you went back to write the code down but because you checked to many times today your now locked out. Dont tell them you filed the 27th. Tell them you filed the 20th, if they ask and only if they asked when were you accepted tell them you never got a notice of acceptance and that when you checked WMR all it said before today was it was processing, now today it stated to call and that you never knew exactly when they accepted because you didnt get notification. dont mention it if they dont ask.
you should be good to go, they may say they have a projected date for 2/13February 11, 2016 at 9:44 am #4137744
Ladyshay what if you never lost your bar. Does this mean that you good cuz I filed 1/27 and I’m stuck on one bar and ppl getting there’s befoe me dat filed after me I’m getting depressedFebruary 11, 2016 at 9:13 am #4137711
Ok I may have good news for you guys that are still waiting. Here is the drop,
I filed 1/27/16 and accepted same day, I have no bars and it says processing a refund date will be provided when available blah blah blah.
So here is what I did, which i got this information from other people doing the same thing.
I called 1-800-829-0582 ext 652
I told them that the WMR tool told me to call this number and it gave me an error code. I told them that I must of attempted to many times because now im locked out so I coundt write down the code. I was asked when did i file. I told them the 27th Now the first person I spoke to wasnt having it, he said if your locked out wait until tomorrow to get the code and call back with the code , unless it was 21 days he couldnt pull the account without the code. BS….. So I said thank you and hung up and immediately called right back. At this point I got someone who was much pleasant. I gave him the same spill of WMR saying to call this number but when i went back to write down the code it said I was locked out after to many attempts. This time i told them I filed the 20th but im not sure when i was accepted because when i finally checked WMR it only said I was processing with no WMR tool. So i dont know exactly when it was accepted.
He stated it doesnt mean anything if the bars go missing because it can be your browser, cookies, or just a system issue when there is high flow volume. He did pull my account and stated the reason mine was delayed is because there was a small error that they were able to fix without contacting me or requesting anything. He stated it didnt effect my refund amount. He stated he had a projected date of 2/13/16 which is a Saturday. He did say because its a Saturday dont lock that date in my head. (Howevr I know some people who got there refund last saturday so im locking it in my head anyway.) Anywho he was great. It may be small things that the IRS is fixing on there end that doesnt need you attention thats causing the delay. However gor clarification follow what I did and get your answers.February 11, 2016 at 9:09 am #4137705
File 1/27; Accepted 1/27. Still one bar and no movement as of 8:00 am 2/11.February 11, 2016 at 9:05 am #4137702
Still one bar at 4am should I check it again it’s now 9AmFebruary 11, 2016 at 8:31 am #4137678
yall, we will NOT be getting ours until WEDNESDAY, next week! Thats what IRS lady told me, if we are still no progression this morning then ours will be in the upcoming batch scheduled for next Wednesday. Im so damn IRKED! everyone around me received their return, i worked hard, i over payed and now i want my damn MONEY! this is so WRONG!February 11, 2016 at 8:02 am #4137652
Filed and accepted on 1/27 and still stuck on one bar (WRM). Last year filed and accepted on 1/25 and got my refund deposited on 2/4. Much slower this year.February 11, 2016 at 7:08 am #4137624
One bar as wellFebruary 11, 2016 at 6:56 am #4137622
Still at one bar too…February 11, 2016 at 4:07 am #4137585
Filed and accepted thru TT 1/27
Still only 1 bar on WMR
Now turbo tax doesn’t even show how many people have received their refund that filed on the same date.. instead it shows a calendar marking from the day I filed to the 21st day as if I’m an idiot and don’t know what they mean when they give me 2 dates and tell me it could be 21 days. Ugh just give me my money!February 11, 2016 at 12:35 am #4137532
Has anyone checked to see if they got approved or dddFebruary 10, 2016 at 4:43 pm #4137293
1 bar still I’m hoping I get updated soon cuz this messing with the whole brick squad and not to mention I’m tryna get burrrr…..February 10, 2016 at 2:28 pm #4137152
Filed with TT early morning on 1/27 accepted that day. Only 1 W2, 1 dependent, head of household, school and childcare expenses. Checked this morning, 2/10, at about 3AM EST; WMR showing only one bar. Checked again at about 8:30AM and FINALLY movement on 2 bars now!!! DDD of 2/12; fingers crossed that goes through without any hold ups!!!
Basically, doesn’t really matter how simple or complicated your return is, it’s just luck of the draw, depends on ‘whose desk it lands on.’ And how long they take to complete it. It sucks waiting on other people to get the money YOU work hard for everyday!!!
Good luck all!!!February 10, 2016 at 12:21 pm #4137026
Spoke to a nice lady at the irs today. She couldn’t tell me anything about my return because it’s not 21 days yet. She said if I don’t see any error codes I shouldn’t be worried. She gave me a few reasons why it could be taking so long. She said because they receive so many at a time the system could have been jammed up and it’s stuck in the back log that would push us back a week. My return could have been randomly selected for further review because of identity theft reasons. She also said when you file head of household and have dependents they need to verify further that your claiming children that belong to you. And that it happens more often when it’s a single female claiming head of household. She said returns are processed everyday but they aren’t processed in the order they are received and the WMR update every night. I just have to keep on checking.February 10, 2016 at 12:20 pm #4137025
Filed & accepted on 1/27. Ordered account transcript last week. Still can’t order a return transcript, still 1 bar with tax topic 152.
It’s just a little frustrating when people filed after me have already received their refunds.February 10, 2016 at 12:00 pm #4136995
So I filed on Tax Act on 1/27 and was accepted 30 min later and still today only have 1 bar. I can’t order refund transcript and I called today only to wait 30 min for a VERY rude lady to Jay hang up on me.
What a great way to run, but all of my co-workers who filed well AFTER me have all received their refunds. It just irritates me because I filed early to avoid the rush and here I am stuck in the back. Noted for next year never file early because it makes NO DIFFERENCE.
Ugh… bills stacking up.February 10, 2016 at 10:08 am #4136862
I stand corrected. Someone misinformed me, the 21 days is actually calendar days, my apologies!!!! Good luck to everyone!February 10, 2016 at 10:05 am #4136858
I am right there with you! I have a degree, actually two of them! But, in all honesty, it was a waste of time and MONEY! I am still paying those blasted things off and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.
In my many years of filing taxes, I have never had this problem. Last year, I filed on the same day (01/27) and received my refund on 02/04. It truly is a frustrating thing to endure and am frustrated along with everyone else.
I just do not understand why the IRS does not do the returns by filing dates. It makes absolutely no sense. If the IRS can give a reason as to why they do this, I would be dumbfounded. And probably more confused than what I already am in regards to how they conduct their business.February 10, 2016 at 10:01 am #4136853
For the people who are complaining that their 21 day mark is approaching, I just want to inform you that the 21 days is BUSINESS days. This means that nobody has reached a 21 day mark yet. The IRS did not start officially accepting returns until January 19th, so if you got accepted January 19th, 21 business days from then is February 16th. If you were accepted after Jan. 19th, obviously your 21 days is after february 16th.February 10, 2016 at 9:54 am #4136841
Filed 1/27 and here it is 2/10 and still no change. 2 freaking weeks and not a single change, yet Feb filers are being approved left and right. Losing my patience rapidly with IRS and all the time it’s human robots I get. I better have a DDD by next Wednesday is all I’m gonna say or hell will rain on earth with IRS. So not in the mood with screwing with these retards. They can’t even process simple returns and yet claim they have degrees in accounting. Yeah right.February 10, 2016 at 8:50 am #4136749
Filed 1/27; Accepted 1/27; I am among the 53% of the people that have not yet received there returns. Co-worker filed on 2/4 and receive his returns this morning. I don’t think the IRS process returns in order as they are received. Eventually, we will all get our turn. Money or not, have a great day ALL!February 10, 2016 at 8:17 am #4136697
I file 1/27 and accepted at 11:55. However I am still processing with no ddd and cannot order return transcript. I have never in my life in my years of filing taxes have had to wait this long. I called turbotax who stated nothing was wrong as far as they can see on their end. Then i called the IRS yesterday and there was a GUY that was nice enough to look at my account and he stated there was nothing wrong that he can see either and that I should just continue to wait as it has not been 21 days. He did make a valid point however, that this wait isnt anything new, he stated it may be a change of people experiencing but the process is the same. He stated I may have gotten it early last year but there were other people that had to wait. He stated it just turned out that for me, this year I am the one waiting. So with that being said, I guess ill try to be a little patient at least until the 21 day time frame and them i am going HAM. What frustrates me though is my co worker filed last week and got her refund today. Another thing to keep in mind, everyones return is different, some are simple and are just claim 1 job, and others such as mine are more complex where you claim a dependent, multiple W2s, school, and child care expenses. Anyhow, point is no update still waitingFebruary 10, 2016 at 8:15 am #4136696
ok…irs lady said that most 1/27 filers , even though they may have been accepted the 27th, actually werent dealt with until the 29th… those of us that are waiting… a slight delay of just a week she says. sooooooo nothing is wrong, thank God… we just have to wait it out from here… even though the week will seem like a year, it’s COMING!!!! yay!February 10, 2016 at 8:06 am #4136682
rut roe. i have irs on the phone, i may have fibbed a lil and told them its been 21 days for me. i just wanna see what this hold up is all about.February 10, 2016 at 8:03 am #4136680
same here yall!!!! i will have 21 days in come sunday i believe… im so frustrated with this ordeal. it irks me.February 10, 2016 at 7:56 am #4136668
I am right there with you Candy and Heather. I am still sitting at one bar. I even called to check the status and was given the same information. According to TurboTax, there have only been 49% of the people that filed on that day receive a deposit. I am truly starting to get nervous. There have been plenty of people that I know that filed after me and have already received their refund.
I keep reading different places that there is no rhyme or reason to how the IRS completes the returns that are submitted, but you would think they would do it day by day. It just makes no sense to the ordinary citizen that they would complete it any other way. I hope I hear something soon.
Best RegardsFebruary 10, 2016 at 7:21 am #4136628

DD just came to my account. I had a date of 2/10. I thought I wouldn’t see anything until 2/11 b/c my bank processes’ deposits received that day after 12am. I’m not all that lucky b/c all my money is going toward applying to grad schools which is $1000+. Good luck to everyone else!February 10, 2016 at 3:07 am #4136378
