    -Filed 1/31 and accepted the same day.
    -Claimed both credits.
    -WMR has had PATH msg since 2/2
    -Cycle: 20180505 I think I’m a weekly update so I’m hoping to see something by saturday. Also, my tax transcript has been available so my fingers are crossed.

    I’m hoping we all see a change by saturday.

    Some good information on here. I’ve been checking this forum daily so I figured I might as well join.



    I didn’t know that!



    @nikesha November because it could be blank. But if you filed before last week it is possible that you are processed so I hope you receive a complete transcript. Good luck. Wishing for ddd for all of us here on the 17th!


    Tall Drink

    Good morning and Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

    One day closer….

    I’ve just been lurking and cracking up at comments and some people’s ignorance. Jeeeeez :)



    @Amb maybe you need to call because the tax advocate department stated that no matter what the situation is they are taking NO CASES for hardships until after the 27th which is when Pathers are scheduled to receive their refunds. Maybe you should read previous posts before you bring in last year’s information. And furthermore you need to read your own reply that says you apologize for bringing information or whatever but it was not for the immediate insults.
    And nobody will know if they need to file for a hardship before the 17th when we see the update that we already knew about before you thought you were correcting Lance who stated the exact same thing.



    Just a quick question, if you can order your return transcript by mail, does that mean you’re done processing?



    This is from the IRS website. Earliest we will see funds in our bank account is Feb 27.

    The IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, although some require additional time. You should only call if it has been:
    •21 days or more since you e-filed
    •6 weeks or more since you mailed your return, or when
    •”Where’s My Refund” tells you to contact the IRS

    Taxpayers who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit may experience a refund hold. According to the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, the IRS cannot issue these refunds before mid-February. The IRS expects the earliest EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or debit cards starting February 27, 2018, if these taxpayers chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax return.



    @sandi I went to IRS.gov and looked up the path act u can find it right on the irs site I just copied and pasted



    Weekly updates cycle code ends in 05 we should see 846 Refund issued on Friday. If you filed after 2/5 hopeful for Sat but it will most likely be next Saturday



    @skittlez My apology was not for you. It was Incase Lance felt as insulted as you did, that was not my intention. Tax advocates can help NOW for the people who need it facing eviction , loss of electric , foreclosure etc. If you have not gotten a notice or ask to ID verify then apparently you do not. You are waiting like the rest of us for a Saturday or daily update after 2/15. I hope all the negative people get there money ASAP. The people I work with typically don’t get refunds they owe. Tax resolutions.So yes I’m waiting for my money but I’m definitely not clueless.




    The irs released the information yesterday.




    Im just wondering where you are getting your information?



    Where’s My Refund? ‎on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app will be updated February 17 for the vast majority of early filers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. These taxpayers will not see a refund date on Where’s My Refund? or through their software packages until then




    It’s possible that he looked at a credit to see what it was and went through some prompts, saw it wasn’t applicable to him, but didn’t delete/refresh it before e-filing… it wouldn’t have likely given him a credit but it’s possible that, if he went through an online site, a form (blank) might have been submitted.



    My friend filed 1/22, accepted same day. He’s been on the path message since then. He filed with the same dependants this year, same address. The only thing that was different is that he had a different w2 this year from changing jobs. He received a letter this morning from the IRS saying he’s being audited & needs to provide supporting documents for the eic & actc & the American opportunity credit. I understand double checking the eic & actc. But he’s not a student & I reviewed his return & he didn’t claim the American opportunity credit. So I’m extremely confused & not sure what to tell him. Has this happened to anyone else? He’s calling tomorrow, but I’ve never seen this before.



    Twice in a row…



    @rellyohboy lol Jinx!!! hahaha



    Damn we on point!!!




    150 Tax return filed
    766 Credit to your account
    806 W-2 or 1099 withholding

    Those are not the “Uh-oh” codes, so you should be good for now



    150 – return filed
    766 – Credit to your account
    806 – Credit for your withheld taxes



    @amb You swear to apologize for bringing info but of course you apologized to the wrong person so evidently I have you figured right. We know what an advocate can do but somebody is paying you & you don’t even know that an advocate can’t help us at this time??? They’re paying you & you you’re here just like us trying to “figure things out” because you’re just as lost as the rest of us… so that you can look like a hero to your clients when you go back to them & repeat what LANCE said or whomever else you want to call out but yet repeat the same information that he already gave previously. Yet after you insult him you wanna apologize for “informing those who don’t know”. Again have several seats. I’m not an advocate for anyone you owe an apology to the “right person” for what you “actually” did.



    Path message, ordered transcripts and received today with codes 150,766 and 806. Does anyone know what this means?



    Just updating as well
    F+A Feb 2
    Updated to PATH feb 10
    Praying for a deposit by Feb 22

    Its getting close guys!! Hang in there!!!



    Just updating:

    1/26: Filed
    1/29: Accepted
    2/1: WMR Updated with 1 bar and TT152; Acct transcript available but blank, no return transcript
    2/9: No update on WMR; Return transcript available, Acct transcript available and filled but no 846 code, of course.
    2/10: WMR Updated to no bars, no refund amount, PATH msg, and TT152 still on there

    Now just waiting for my next update on my transcript this Thurs or Fri (I am a weekly) if I will get a 846 and for my WMR to update this Saturday, if I have any changes to my acct transcript. So far it’s going smoothly.



    My tax dates filed 1/28 accepted 1/29 cycle code 20180505 expecting an update Saturday. Still sitting on Path like the rest of us who claimed children and EIC. Prayers for everyone who needs there money!



    Hostility.. I don’t think it’s right to be negative towards people. Knowledge is power and there are people here truly trying to educate themselves and the negativity is not speeding up anyone’s refund. I don’t have to prove myself to anyone. That is not why I come here. I get paid for what I do 365 a year. These forums help me see when refunds get released current WMR updates , to track my own date etc. If you are offended by my post I’m sorry but not everyone here knows about tax advocates. It may come in handy if Anyone runs into any snags with the IRS , if you can prove your hardship they will help you, if you already know that then no reason to be negative because a lot of people do not.



    Thank you Momjess, negasonic teenage warhead, Lance, brideofchaotica, & Geishadol_39.



    Guess you can’t edit your post where spellcheck when you need it .. lol



    Is lance a tax prof??…or just a forum junkie, your insights are great especially for those who need it. Having the time to respond to everyone is awesome.This is my career and transcripts are best way to get an early answer about you refund ,every year it goes a little different so I monitor these forums to see if there are audit , ID verify and notice patterns because each year they move differently .Cycle codes do not give you refund date they give you weekly or daily updates. There is no exact way other then seeing it processed 846 refund issues on the account transcript to tell when you will get your refund. Good luck all ,as long as you legally filed your taxes you will be fine. If you have any issues with your refund getting held up and your in hardship , please contact your local tax advocate they will guide you through the process and get your refund released stat. Good luck all



    @Skittlez I have codes 150, 806, 766 and 768. Next to 806, it says “W2 or 1099 withholding”. The amount next to 806 is the correct amount of our w2 withholding combined with my 1099 withholding amount, so I know that includes my 1099. SSA.gov had my self employment income on their since 2/2. I filed on 1/30.



    Filed 2/1 accepted same day
    Received ddd of 2/14 on 2/9
    Did have the child tax credit

    Just looked at bank and it was there! Was not there earlier today so had to have been in the past hour


    negasonic teenage warhead

    Yes @skittles 1099 is self employed. I wonder why yours hasnt updated yet?



    Aren’t 1099s for self employment? I filed schedule C and it’s still not there on ssa.gov. Maybe they’re just slow.



    @kaii Lance has already explained that a few times. We just say Saturday to keep ourselves sane in case it doesn’t happen on the day we “want” it to. Lol



    It says the amount of my income and its for the year of 2017….I’m a Pather also but I didn’t go through this last year because I had to mail my return due to the I.R.S. assigning me an IP pin last year that I never received. I filed electronically this year with my IP pin so now I’m waiting just like everyone else…thanks so much for the info.



    Just got off the phone with the IRS about another taxe matter. At the end I ask her about this years return ( she said to look for updates Friday are Monday with DD of 27 are first of March.)



    Well for better or worse I can confirm the ssa.gov truck works… In 2016 the only year I had had a delay(had to show proof of kids etc), ssa.gov didn’t update until everything was cleared… This year ssa.gov updated my 2017 earning already… So fingers crossed…


    negasonic teenage warhead

    That ssa site only helps if you’re self employed.



    Most will, but not all



    If I am reading correctly, filers that are affected by PATH will find out by Thursday-Saturday?


    Need my money

    @momjessThanks you I hope we all get what we need this week..Have a blessed night.



    lance….just cracks me up



    Thank you @Jerseygirl02



    @Geishadoll_39 I believe the theory is that the irs won’t report income to ssa that isn’t approved. Therefore if you see your income on ssa.gov for 2017 then your return has processed and is complete. Check history to see if hats the year it’s recorded. Mine still hasn’t recorded but I was told that mine is complete by the tax advocate rep and I’m only waiting for path. My transcripts completed last Wednesday



    What is the thing about ssa? I checked my info on that site and I could see my income…I don’t know…I was reading some posts and it seems like that’s what people are talking about now….could you please give me some info?



    @momjess whew thanks… As long as it doesn’t mean offset I’m fine with that lol




    That’s just 150 return filed. 766 actc and 768 EIC



    My codes are 150, 766 and 768 is that good irs bad? I know the advocate rep told me it’s complete & nothing is wrong I just wanna know if anyone else has these codes




    the bank name is,

    BofI Federal Bank



    Interesting forum? Lol does anybody know what bank emerald card uses?




    This happened to me last year. I faxed the info in and it only delayed my return by one week. Just make sure to follow the instructions exactly.



    Thanks for clearing that up RB. Yeah PATH affects EIC or ACTC but not CTC that’s why none of us have the code 846 yet. I sure was stalking my transcript for it though hoping lol.



    Yes your correct momjess. I didn’t put as much thought into that post as I should have. I was more or less trying to say I didn’t have eic and that I got the 846 code because I know some people asked for posts if people started to see that code.



    I’m going to assume RB has CTC not ACTC



    I filed 2/2 and accepted 2/2. I have ACTC but not eic, filed HOH with 3 dependants. My transcripts updated yesterday with a 846 code and the date 2/16/18. My cycle code is 20180702.







    I think the earliest wmr mat update for us is Thursday. But definitely Saturday as long as there’s no problem with your return.


    Tall Drink


    That is what happened to me last year. I ended up calling before the letter was received by me, because I never got the PATH msg, just the “your return has been received and is still being processed…”. Thankfully I was able to get the info I needed from the person I spoke with and a fax number to the corrections department. I gathered and faxed the form needed to the number she gave and that helped speed things along. Still did not see my refund until March 18th I believe it was, but still not the 6-8 weeks they said it would be either.


    Need my money

    Will there be a update for us creditors wed for ddd soon.




    Do you have code 766 on your transcript too?

    Just checked mine and no 846 code yet. Filed 1/26, cycle 20180503 EITC and ACTC.



    We have all seen that IRS memo and message. We are just hear to see and converse with our peers and see what people are getting and seeing.



    Just a little FYI:

    Taxpayers who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit may experience a refund hold. According to the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, the IRS cannot issue these refunds before mid-February. The IRS expects the earliest EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or debit cards starting February 27, 2018, if these taxpayers chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax return.

    Where’s My Refund? ‎on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app will be updated February 17 for the vast majority of early filers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. These taxpayers will not see a refund date on Where’s My Refund? or through their software packages until then. The IRS, tax preparers and tax software will not have additional information on refund dates, so Where’s My Refund? remains the best way to check the status of a refund. Where’s My Refund? is only updated once daily, usually overnight, so checking it more often will not produce new or different results.





    I unfortunately know all about that dreaded form 8962.
    It happened to me 2016 tax year.
    Insurance credits and crap.
    I ended up needing a tax advocate and my state attorney general’s office assistance. I didn’t receive my refund until June 15 2016 I had filed 1/20 that year. Litteraly the day after the attorney general’s office contacted IRS my funds were released.
    I’m not trying to freak you out for me it was really bad experience because it caused my file to be resequenced for a very long time. The delay all came down to throwing mine to the back because of that form!
    I advise you to get a tax advocate when you are able to so that once you send in completed form you can hurry the process some.
    I wish you the best of luck and I hope your situation turns out better and sooner than mine did!



    I filed with Tax Slayer 1/23, accepted 1/24 and only movement was my bars disappearing over the weekend.

    Got home from work yesterday with a letter from the IRS awaiting me. They want more proof of my insurance. They want Tax Form 8962 filled out and mailed back. I’ve been using TS for the last 20 years or so and I’ve never had an issue. I guess this was just my year to be flagged. Letter states it will take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks to get my refund from the date they receive the form back from me. No return for me until around April.

    Good luck to everyone. Hope you have a better experience this year than I have had.



    I filed 1/16, accepted 1/22 and have been stuck on Path since early February when I first checked.

    There’s literally no point in this message except to say hey hey hey, we’re closer than we were a week ago. I tried to mentally prepare myself this year to not see any $$$ until March and I’ve been doing fairly good but these last few days I can feel the itch. Hopefully some things start rolling by next week. Either way, we’re getting there!



    I filed 2/2 and accepted 2/2. I have the ACTC, HOH, 3 kids, no eic. My transcripts updated yesterday with a code 846, cycle code 20180702 and by my code 846 I show a date of Feb 16, 2018.



    Last year people with processing dates of the 13th, 20th, and 27th all had DDD of 02/22 and 02/23.

    My processing date last year 02-20-2017 with a ddd of 02-23-2017. I had fees taken out and it was deposited on my NetSpend at 3 pm on 02-22-2017. My cycle code last year was 20170505

    This year I have a processing date of 02-12-2017. A cycle code of 20180405 and I paid fees upfront.

    I check my transcript daily so if it changes I’ll post here and hope any else who changes does the same.



    I hope they roll out refunds soon, but I would highly doubt that any of us will see $$$ in our accounts on the 15th unless there is code 846 on the transcripts with a DDD already, which I have not seen anyone with EIC/ACTC have yet. I hope when someone has code 846 on their transcripts that they will post about it!
    Last year, my processing date was 2/27. The date by code 846 (refund issued) was 2/23, and I received my funds on 2/23. Some DDD’s were before the processing date last year, some were after. I read that for some, WMR updated on the 16th & 17th with a DDD, mine updated on the 18th, and some never updated at all before receiving their DD in their accounts. Last year my account transcript updated the day before WMR, so I suspect transcripts for weekly people may update this Friday with a DDD for the following week. Fingers crossed!!



    @AmberCC14 I’m hoping they check after i made error in mind as well. They can adjust and send letter I’m fine with that. Just hoping they don’t hold refund looking for info.



    @rellyohboy–thanks for info! I appreciate it!



    @sarah thanks I hope so, it feels like it’s taking forever for the 15th to come lol


    cheryl e kendrick

    many of us early filers are so close, and yet some are getting id verify letters as well, I really don’t see things can change much when we are this close.



    @Sarah- I’m not familiar with the whole processing date… How did you find out what yours was and also does your WMR have any bars? Im still showing path act note



    Lori I do. Last year my processing date was 2/20 my DDD was 2/23, got it 2/22 at 11pm. I think the processing date is a good indicator to when a DDD will be. My experience it’s only a couple days. My processing date this year 2/12, add 3 days 2/15, the day IRS released refunds.



    @AmberCC14 Hopefully it wasnt a large amount, either way the Alphabet Boys will catch the error, make the adjustment and send you a notice. The thing is you dont know when its coming, it could be this year next year or 2 years from now. You’ll owe the additional tax on the unreported amount plus whatever late fees and interest they decide to tack on to it. Also, if there is a big diff between the numbers you could possibly wind up owing your state some more bread too.

    Remember shit rolls down hill…Send in a 1040X with the correct numbers.
