    i filed on 2/16 waiting on identity protection pin to come, received my refund couple hours go.. wmr still says procssing. filed child tax n eic, and had a small offset, still received refund 7 days after filing.



    Sooo I have the EIC and actc….filed and accepted on 2/19.
    Never got an update on wmr but just about 10min ago my direct deposit came through. Guess I was lucky and it sure was a blessing because bills are coming.



    I got my transcript today and it’s cycle is 20180705. Does anyone know what that means?



    Finally see my transcripts with cycle code 20180805 which I believe is next Thursday.



    @mark I have the same situation as you. Filed and accepted 2/7. I have EIC and ACTC.
    TT152 and sitting at the 1st bar on WMR. Called to get my transcripts faxed and they say N/a the agent told me to call back on the 28th if I don’t have an update or refund. WTH? Last year I got mines back on Feb 22. She said my transcripts weren’t finished processing and to keep checking the irs.gov.



    WMR updated to Refund Sent this morning, but no DD yet. DDD was 2/22/18. Navy Federal Credit Union come on.



    Filed 2/5 TT / Accepted 2/5
    WMR has been “still being processed” for two weeks with tax topic 152. I never received the PATH message. My return transcripts are N/A and account transcript says “no return filed.” I called yesterday and was told to call back if nothing has changed by February 27.

    I’m hoping for some movement Saturday… tomorrow would be nice too.



    Does anyone know why my wmr would say my refund is to be mailed by February 27th when I asked for direct deposit through TT and all my account info is correct? I filed and was accepted the 1/29 with ACTC. Thanks!



    Filed 1/29 accepted next day with tt. Ddd 2/22. Received on focus payroll card by us bank today around 2pm deposit finally hit. Geez



    Filed 2/8/18, accepted same day. DDD 2/22/18 still no DD Navy Federal



    I files my taxes through liberty tax(fees deducted from return) on the first Saturday in February and accepted the same day. IRS approved return on the 10th of February w/dd of February 22nd and yesterday I called liberty to see if they had a check for me around 6p.m and they did. I never was able to check republic website for additional refund info. I had eitc/actc,etc



    Woke up to my DD! I bank with Chase. Just wanted to let people know. Glad this washout is over. Hope you all get yours soon!



    Got an update on WMR this morning with a DDD of 2/26. Filed and accepted 2/15. Had ACTC, school credits, 1099’s and several W2’s. Just wanted to let people know WMR updated for me this morning. Only ever had the standard tax topic for refunds 152.

    Anyone has another DDD besides 2/22


    mark b

    Filed/Accepted 2/5 TT
    No Bars (disappeared on 2/10) with Tax 152 Topic and
    “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.”
    Called, said to wait til 27th and if nothing, call them back.
    N/A on Return Transcript
    “No tax return filed” on Account Transcript
    No letters in the mail

    I guess I’m just waiting til 27th to see if something changes.



    @britt this is my first year using chime for my refund so my fingers are crossed. I hope it comes today without any hold up from H&R Block.


    Restlessly Waiting

    filed on 1/31
    accepted 1/31
    DDD of 2/22

    Just got off the phone with Wells Fargo. They said there’s nothing pending in my account and they haven’t received my DD yet. Looking back to last year, it seems like Wells Fargo will release the funds on the exact date and not a moment sooner. Should be there tonight hopefully. I’ll be going with Netspend next year for my return. With my luck though, that’ll be the year something catastrophic happens and Netspend will be the only ones being held.



    Woo whoo!!! I bet many will start trickling in then soon!!



    @2013taxpayer yes they were deducted from mine, i filed mine and my moms 2 days apart(mine on 1-31, heres on 1-29) here had a dd of 2-08 got hers at 2-7 at 0215 am cst, i had fees deducted from hers and min, both put on the turbo prepaid card



    @thelividtaxpayer: fees deducted from refund? or paid upfront?



    Well my dd just hit, turbo prepaid card, wrm said my direct deposit was 2/22, got it a day early yayyy



    @rtbartonie i have the emerald card and all signs seem to be pointing to us getting our money tomorrow at 12am i hate this though i have been without a car for over 2 months and have 3 babies i have exhausted family members with rides to and from work and now because of this hold on our funds im missing out on many cars that are more then affordable :(




    Normally with chime did you get it a day earlier. I believe 4am-5pm today is our window to see deposits unless there’s a hold up on the FR end.



    @Britt I have a chime card as well with DDD 2/22 AND FILED WITH H&R BLOCK AND STILL NOTHING YET.



    Anyone with Emerald card with DDD of 2/22 get anything yet?



    I just got my refund from CK on my Serve card even though I told them to do my bank lol



    @Britt I have a chime card, still nothing for me yet. Hopefully it will come early. Someone said earlier they use it as well and always get it early.


    Courtney Groyon

    Did anyone else get the TT 203? Went and had Injured spouse papers filed today at JH and said to mail them. (My husband is supposed to get his back 2/22) was wondering if anyone has filed IS and if you know if you can fax rather than mail.



    Filed HRB 1/29 accepted 1/29 received DDD 2/22. I usually use my chime card. Does anyone else use chime? They are under bankcorp. Has anyone ever received their refund earlier? Just curious.



    Does anyone know if Wells Fargo will release my fund earlier than 2/22 or will they typically holdnu til that day.



    @sandra you filed 1/29 check your transcripts online because you should’ve updated with the rest of us. If that doesn’t work call irs. You’re past 21 days



    Filed HOH and accepted 2/7 thru TT. Claimed EIC, ACTC and AOTC. Never got PATH message, just “accepted and being processed” with TT 152 right up until Sat 2/17 update with 2 bars, approved and DDD of 2/22. Called my bank and deposit is pending as of Sat 2/17.

    Same kids, job, address and bank account as past years. YAY! Just wish money had actually been IN my account Sat and hoping I don’t have to wait until Th the 22nd.



    Same here guys…Filed 1/29 accepted same day -hrblock.com self online
    Have both credits – new mom of twins in 2017
    Head of household
    From 1/30 – 2/3 wmr showed one bar then Away it went and have been stuck on….
    “Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.”

    It does show the refund amount on the side -6k
    I never got a path message. I check alot lol

    NO updates on the “big update” on Saturday. However, my husband dwho file single/no credits (not legally married) did have a update on Saturday, he filed & accepted same way on 2/6. Now update showed DDD for 2/22. He sitting on 2 bars right now with tax topic 201. Says his refund was reduced to a tax obligation and balance is scheduled for deposit that day…crazy huh. I filed first, where’s my money? Lol. Best wishes for all of us , I pray it comes soon for ALL of us.!!! And it will! 😉just hang tight.



    Here’s my take in general:
    The DDD says BY Feb. 22..I don’t expect it for sure till then, but that leaves things open for it to come Tuesday or Wednesday (Citizens Bank Ohio) Not overly hoping for it, but at this point it wouldn’t surprise me at all..



    Thanks Ellie..thats the same exact set up as me. Same DDD. I’m hoping for Tuesday.



    I use a local credit union and file with HRB. Fees are taken out of my refund. I most always get my funds a day before the DDD and wmr never fully updates before I get my refund. I have a DDD for 2/22, but I’m sure I’ll see the deposit on Wednesday.



    Plus I do not work for or care for Jackson Hewitt or any other financial institution, I just merely wanted to share. And from what I understand credit unions are better than banks but at the end of the day, both are out to use your money.



    Jackson Hewitt will issue you an American Express Serve debit card(if you don’t want to use your own bank, credit or any other financial card you may already have). And as far as I know( because I have one and have seen others who have the same) refund is released as soon as it is processed in the Amex Serve system. I personally have a DDD of 2/22 and the refund was on the card yesterday morning at 823am. I’m still on the 2nd bar on WMR. My girlfriend is still waiting on hers, she has Chase as her direct deposit for her refund. We filed pretty much all the same, same day, accepted the same day (1/29th). And as far as we can tell (because of others) Chase Bank probably won’t release the refund until the day of. Hope this helps alleviate some of the frustration for those who are using there own personal bank account. P.s I did not receive a loan. Some of the people i know who used AmexServ did and also received early.



    @jenny youngs
    Actually it’s a relief to hear that you’re on still processing and accepted on 1 29 cause I’m the same as you I do recall last year mine sat on processing and then just popped up ddd out of nowhere



    Thank you Johnny Tombstone. Hope your right…with bills piled up and a family, each day that goes by without the funds really hurts. I know many are in the same boat. I’m using Netspend with fees paid up front next year. We cant go through this again. THANKS AGAIN.


    Jonny Tombstone

    @RayC there is a good chance.



    As much as we all want our refunds and don’t have them yet, I find it funny that there are people who are so insistent on telling those that do have their monies already that they DO NOT. It’s as if you know exactly how they filed, who they filed with, what type of filing they chose to do, etc.

    Unless you sleep with these people and pay their bills, please stop telling these people information about their lives that you do not know.

    This forum has turned into one heck of a joke.



    I have a 2/22/18 DDD .What are the odds I see a DD Come Tuesday? I used my Credit Union.



    Let me also add that I used Turbotax, bought the downloadable program, and did no type of loan. It is a direct deposit from the IRS. My credit union shows:
    Deposit ACH 916 IRS Treas 310 (tax ref) +$5,837.00




    I am not advertising for anything. I updated you all on 2/16 on this thread because my deposit is available in my credit union account as of 2/16. My credit union releases money the day it hits the bank. It’s a credit union from Georgia and I haven’t lived there in 10 years. I now live in Tennessee but I kept them for this very reason. I’d gladly show you a screenshot of my deposit. It’s really in there. It really just depends on when your financial institution releases funds. Most will wait till 2/22. Just fyi my WMR status currently states “We have received your tax return and it is being processed….” Yet I have money in my account.



    No- she didn’t.

    If someone is *actually* getting their refund early, it’s because they chose to get what is essentially a LOAN against their coming refund through the tax preparer. That company is giving the person a LOAN for the amount of the refund, less the fees and interest, that will be paid back when the refund ACTUALLY arrives.

    So if her refund was $4000, they might say that they’ll give her $3600 and will just keep her refund when it does come in.

    It’s a cash advance scheme. Some people feel it’s worth it. But no one’s refund is actually a week, or several, early.



    Never thought of it that way,
    But some people did, I know this is exactly what u just said lol but my neighbor used Jackson Hewitt and got hers yestetday


    Jenny Youngs

    Is there any more big updates supposed to be coming? I have the message we are processing. That is the only message I have had. Filed 1/29 accepted same day. ETC, ATC, adoption credit.



    People – these flurry-posters who say they’re getting their DDD 2/22 refunds already are marketing for their company. “I used to use BlahBlah bank (their competitor) but it was such a HASSLE. This year, I used what my best friend’s mother’s boyfriend’s accountant step-daughter uses: BlipBlop Bank’s RainbowDazzle card. And I got my refund already!”

    They’re trying to convince you to use them next year. Don’t get worked up about people having those refunds already. They don’t; it’s BS.



    Filed and accepted 2/01/2018 still no progress
    2 bar tt152 since forever. Eitc ctc and had turbo tax take fees out. Normally i dont pay attention to the process but man this year different. Should have paid fees up front.



    Filed 1/24 accepted the same day! No update with the BIG update. No bars tax topic 152 still able to see expected refund generic processing message. Just want to know what’s going on! Never had this problem before.



    I use Tax Act and opted to pay my fees with money from my refund. In the years past, Republic Bank did not show my money being received until the day before and did not send mt refund to my Amex Serve card until the day It was supposed to be deposited. I felt like I was cheated because the only reason I opted to get my funds on the Amex serve card was the fact that they said “get your federal return 2-3 days early with Amex serve”. I now will pay my fees up front and save money and get it 2-3 days early. Republic bank charges $35 just to send my funds to my Amex Serve card. What a racket! They are making millions of us who chose not to pay the fees up front.



    for people that used the emerald card
    i have used hrb for years and always got my money the day of or a day before also they dont hold funds whenever irs release them the bank load them onto ur card within an hour . it just depends when the irs lift the hold off your account .. heres a link from the bofl bank

    The Bank does not hold funds from Tax Returns. We invite you to determine the date your tax refund will be delivered by checking the status of your return online at: https://www.irs.gov/Refunds.

    You can contact an H&R Block agent that would be happy to help you identify the date you will receive your Tax Return at (800) HRBLOCK or (800) 472-5625



    Does netspend give funds before the DDD? Not in a rush for our refund just curious as this is our first year using a netspend card. Our old bank we got our refund the day before our DDD usually.


    Adrian Williams

    just pay me please I’m at Chase also. I hope you’re wrong. I’m thinking the 20th.



    So I have a DD of 2/22. Does anyone else show a tax topic 203?? I called the hotline and they said nothing is showing up for me and honestly idk what could possibly cause me an offset.

    @Crystal lol ikr the magically piscean they’re!!!



    Filed Fed and state with Tax Act on 1/15. Fed accepted on 1/16. Woke up this morning with a 2/22 DDD. My last 6 returns have been in my account on a Thursday morning, so this fits the trend.



    I been using EZTAXRETURN.com for years,almost 6,and having my refund DD into my Credit Union. Last year and this year has been awful however…all the waiting. Either the Tax act/path law needs to go,or I’m going to start having my refund put on netspend. Does anyone know if the new tax code that took affect will get rid of this stupid law? Or is it going to be continued? I simply see no benefit of said tax act.



    Received refund this morning on AmexServ
    DDD of 2/22
    Filed on 1/27
    Accepted on 1/29


    just pay me please

    I Bank with chase so it may not be available to me until the 2/22
    I don’t mind just glad to know it was finally approved
    GOOD LUCK ALL !!!!



    Its business days NOT counting weekends!!! So its not been 21 yet.



    I now have updated to refund approved with a dd date of 2/22. I use bluebird American Express and I filed through turbo tax. Does anyone know whether funds are sent out to the banks over the weekend? Wondering if it will post to bluebird this weekend?



    Filed 1/26
    Accepted 1/26
    Both credits
    SBTB fees
    No ddd, no updates anywhere

    Today is 22nd day since acceptance :(



    Few thoughts…..is the IRS operating today? I have a DD for 2/22. I am using the Turbo Prepaid Card (Thought Turbo used Netspend ) I know I saw on the tread that The prepaid cards would be running all weekend BUT if the IRS still has me on two bars, wouldn’t the IRS have to be on status of sent before my bank could start processing



    Nothing pending yet for HRB card … users who have this, ive read about them holding the funds is this true? I should have used my Penfed account 🤔



    Filed 2/1 approved 2/1 never went to path mess and WMR gave second bar withh DDD of the famous 2/22 . Good luck to everyone still waiting.



    Filed 2/7

    DDD for 2/22 this morning, it’s over! Well almost just need SBTPG to send my funds to my bank…..

    I have Navy Fed also but for the last 5 years they always allow me to get my refund a day early. So on 2/21 we can call and have funds released




    I have nfcu ….you can call on the 21st to have it released at the earliest. Now as to whether or not they will release it on their own before then. I am not sure but more than likely they won’t.
