WHAT DOES IRS REFERENCE NUMBER 9001 REALLY MEAN?
See what happened last year with people who got Code 9001:
Thanks to our friends at College Investor, here is some more information about Reference Code 9001
“….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…..”

@ Hope processing dat was March 25 but no change . Was that the day they actually starting working o it?April 2, 2019 at 10:47 am #4321711
My process date is 4/1 also & I used TurboTax , but I’ve always used them never had an issue before. A couple of ppl I know filed through them with no problems so I just don’t know what to think anymore. I requested a TA yesterday as well…….April 2, 2019 at 9:52 am #4321703
Hope my processing date was April 1st and I used turbo tax alsoApril 2, 2019 at 7:55 am #4321674
Did all the ones that received a letter have the same processing date of April 1 ? Mine is April 8 I’m praying I don’t get a letter now !!! I just can’t believe this I will never never use turbo tax againApril 1, 2019 at 9:54 pm #4321589
How do I get a tax advocate ?April 1, 2019 at 9:35 pm #4321583
Omg I hope I don’t get a letter I’m freaking out now uggh what is going on!! I guess I’m going to go ahead and call a tax advocate in the morningApril 1, 2019 at 8:45 pm #4321577
@ Bri I totally agree with you! It’s very odd we all got letters today. I verified the 25th of February and still nothing except this wonderful new letter today. I’m currently waiting the 5 days for a tax advocateApril 1, 2019 at 8:39 pm #4321576
Carolyn I still have code 9001 and no barsApril 1, 2019 at 8:33 pm #4321573
Did anyones WMR update or do you still have 9001 code ? This is frustratingApril 1, 2019 at 6:42 pm #4321555
I also verified on 2/25 and now have an additional 60 days pending letter as well 🤦🏻♀️April 1, 2019 at 6:24 pm #4321551
Ive been able to view my transcripts since 3/8 mines updated 3/15 but nothing since thenApril 1, 2019 at 6:15 pm #4321550
Did anybody received there refund after providing there ID cause I filed 2 17 19 and accepted 2 22 19 now I didn’t here about a code 9001 until about March 25 or something I went in the office to provide my ID now how do I wait? The whole 9 weeks?April 1, 2019 at 6:07 pm #4321547
Can any of you all that received the new letter view your transcript online? Just wondering if I should expect another letter or notApril 1, 2019 at 5:39 pm #4321543
I think it’s weird we all got a letter today on our processing date I filed 1/28 id verify 2/26April 1, 2019 at 4:46 pm #4321539
After over 6 weeks of the 9 I was originally told after verifying my ID, I received a new letter in the mail today GRRRR. Just waiting on them and hopefully I will be paid by May 16 (45 days from today) if not I will receive another letter!!! What the heck is going on this year?!! I’m beyond frustratedApril 1, 2019 at 3:04 pm #4321523
Zee I called an advocate and after being on hold for over 2 hours a nice lady finally came on the phone. She asked what was my hardship (because you have to have one to qualify)and why I needed an advocate. I told her I was behind on my car payment and rent and my son is fixing to have surgery. She said an advocate would contact me within 5 days! I’ve seen several people on another website have the same problems we have and they got an advocate and had their money back in 2 weeks. I’m praying they help me something has to give! Never ever ever will I file again in January!! Good luck to everyone this tax season makes me wanna just live off the government and screw them how they’ve done me this year🤣🤣April 1, 2019 at 2:21 pm #4321514
This is some BS!!! I was basically told that my I.D verification is one thing which can take up to 9weeks! My 9 weeks is up 4/29! The letter I got in the mail today is saying I’m under a 60 day review and nobody can tell me why the lady from the IRS didn’t even know 🤣! Besides that she said it’s separate from the I.D verification so I’ll be waiting another 60 damn days from my letter date! She also said it may not take 60days at this point i give up 😩April 1, 2019 at 1:41 pm #4321506
me too I’m so frustrated I’m on hold as we speak!!!April 1, 2019 at 12:48 pm #4321499
I received form 4464c today for 60 day review! Currently on hold waiting for a tax advocate this is ridiculous!April 1, 2019 at 11:08 am #4321474

Hope I verified feb 25th also and still have 9001 code on wmr. I can’t see my transcripts online though but I can have them mailed. I filed in January smh this has been the worse tax season ever!March 31, 2019 at 2:04 pm #4321335
@Hope I have processing date of4/1 on my transcript but also got a letter saying I’m under review and it’ll take another 45-60 daysMarch 31, 2019 at 11:03 am #4321329
Omg I verified on2/25 and still nothing the only thing that has changed is I can see my transcript as of last week so it looks like my return has been processed but nothing else … am I the only one that hasn’t got there money yet I’m getting so aggravated….. can the ones that got there money this weekend please tell me what there processes date was on there transcript pleaseMarch 31, 2019 at 9:40 am #4321318
I verified 3/4 still no update the only thing that has changed is WMR changed on 3/20 from the 9001 code to we have received your return and it is being processed with one bar. I still can’t request transcripts by mail with new address on this years return only can request with old address. So I’m assuming that means this years is not processed . This sucks I see everyone that verified after 3/4 got their refund already . Hoping for a change this week but who knows.March 30, 2019 at 8:11 pm #4321261
Filed 02/16 5017c letter 03/9 verified by phone 03/11 still no update as of today filed with freetaxusa usually file with turbo never waited this long for a refundMarch 30, 2019 at 1:24 pm #4321170
What was your processing date on your transcriptMarch 30, 2019 at 12:09 pm #4321156
I filed 1/29

After all that wait I get my refund thank God, I hope and soon all get their money.March 30, 2019 at 7:35 am #4321090
Just wondering if Anyone with the processing date of April 1 seen any movement ?March 29, 2019 at 10:11 pm #4321008
Just curious if this is a problem that seems to be from using a certain company to file. I used turbotax and have seen several others say that’s who they used and are having this code 9001 problem. If that’s the case I will be using someone else next year when I file.March 29, 2019 at 8:46 pm #4320988
Went to verify in person and was told to wait 30-45 days if Don’t rec it to come back after that. They said nothing to me about 9 weeks he said they had my check since March 7th it was a hold for identity because I’ve moved since last year claim they mailed my PIN number to the old addressMarch 29, 2019 at 9:58 am #4320821
I have been using this site for YEARS now and finally decided this year to post. I normally don’t have a problem with my refund but out the blue this yr most like many, I received the God awful ref code 9001. He is my timeline and I need HELP HELP:
I filed on 1/28/19 and was accepted the same day
I lost my bar somewhere between 1/30/19-2/1/19. I kept calling the IRS and being told it was in error, it should change, do nothing…etc..etc….etc.
I called back on 2/19/19 and was finally told a letter was sent out on 2/14/19.
I recv’d the letter the same day and verified and passed online on 2/20/19.
I have called them I don’t know how many times and EVERYTIME I am told something different. I have been told; nothing has changed, I see where you verified but there is no date on when it was done, I don’t see where you verified call the line back, ALLOW 9 WEEKS, ALLOW 9 WEEKS, ALLOW 9 WEEKS.
I called the IRS yesterday and was told I don’t see where you ever verified, call and verify again. I called the verification ppl b/c they were the ones that said they see it but no date. The lady said I don’t know why they said that b/c I see where it was verified and the hold was removed. She said let me see why you haven’t gotten your money and then said oh I know what happened. She didn’t tell me what happened but assured me after she “did whatever she did” that I will receive my refund within the proper timeframe.
So brings me to today: I AM STILL NOT ABLE TO EVEN VIEW MY TRANSCRIPTS.
I don’t know what she did but I think she may have JUST put me back into processing.
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP CALM MY NERVES DOWN!!!!March 29, 2019 at 7:56 am #4320793
Thanks for the information Luke. I can finally view my transcript now and it has code 20191305 so hopefully I do get my refund in the next couple of weeks. Just glad to see some change on it finally.March 28, 2019 at 7:43 pm #4320686
Thanks for the information! Now I’m just praying to see some kind of movement bc this is ridiculous! 🤬March 28, 2019 at 4:59 pm #4320661
Received ID Verify Letter 2/25
ID Verified by Phone 2/26
Has been showing a “We cannot provide any info” with topic 152 and topic 9001 ever since i was accepted back in 2/5.
Have called 3 times since and on Monday 3/25 I called again and was told I was placed on a 45 day review and I should be receiving the CPO5 letter in the mail soon yet I still haven’t till this day.
About 3 or maybe 2 weeks ago I wasn’t able to order my account transcripts by mail since I’m using a new address which i also used for my 2018 refund. Just this week I was able to actually order them to receive them via mail. Does this mean my return is being processed? Do i really have to wait all 45 days?March 28, 2019 at 3:13 pm #4320642
@Zee & @laura
I’m in almost the same boat…
The Cycle Date 20191105 is when they actually received your return, from what I understand. Cycle date 20191105 = 3/14/2019
201911 = the 11th week of 2019
05 = Thursday
So, Thursday of the 11th week of 2019 = 3/14/2019.
I’ve read that people are receiving their direct deposits within 2 weeks of the cycle date, so I’m hoping this weekend.March 28, 2019 at 1:32 pm #4320625
I did id verification in person for 2017 tax return on march 13 2019. I was told wait 9 weeks .he said i would be able to track refund on wmr.com within 48 hrs.so wmr still says no information avail.i just got my transcript which says no return on file.but i spoke to a live rep lastweek and she said im being processed .im so confused to when i will recieve my check inthe mail .and yes i efiled .March 28, 2019 at 12:04 pm #4320612
This is ridiculous. People who verified after me has gotten their money. I haven’t received my state or federal. Filed 01/23 verified 02/21. Just nothing. My transcripts are blank… At this point I’d rather them reject my refund so I can redoMarch 28, 2019 at 8:30 am #4320584
This by far is the worse tax year I’ve ever experienced.March 28, 2019 at 12:49 am #4320516
I did my taxes feb 28 and I verified on March 11 and they said I have to wait till 9 weeks and still no update yet any one still waitting for both refundsMarch 27, 2019 at 1:13 pm #4320396
I went ahead and requested a paper copy of tbe transcript be mailed to me since I can’t view it online. Don’t know that it will give me any information to help but figured it wouldn’t hurt. Hopefully it doesn’t really take 9 weeks to process the return though.March 27, 2019 at 9:08 am #4320332
Does anyone know when the next up date isMarch 27, 2019 at 12:11 am #4320218
Yes Cory, I can order mine online but they are blank with an as of date of 4/8 that recently updated.March 26, 2019 at 4:22 pm #4320110
We can only hope right lol I’m tired of waiting!!March 26, 2019 at 3:48 pm #4320090
Mines is exactly like yours I’m guessing we wont see any change until 4/1 or maybe this weekend hopefully…..March 26, 2019 at 1:30 pm #4320068
So I got my transcripts today in the mail. I only have code 806,766,768,and 570! Beside all of them it says 4-15-19 except on code 570 it says 4-1-19! My cycle code is 20191105 with 4-1-19 beside it! Then it says return due date or return received date 4-15-19 and below that it says processing date 4-1-19! Can someone please explain what this means to me I’m so lostMarch 26, 2019 at 9:29 am #4320019
Waiting * sorry about thatMarch 26, 2019 at 9:28 am #4320018
Nope I can’t view them online airing for them in the mail when I do request them though it only allows my old address to be put in not my new address on this years return. Not sure what that means? Also I verified on March 4 wmr did update last Wednesday from the 9001 code to we have received your refund and it is being processed. Again not sure if that’s a good signMarch 26, 2019 at 9:08 am #4320014
Laura I recieved my state refund a week after I filed back in the beginning of February. Unfortunately I am still waiting on the federal return after I verified 3/6. The two returns are not connected.
On another note has anyone that verified around 3/6 been able to even see their transcript yet?March 26, 2019 at 6:30 am #4319977
Has anyone received their state refund or got an approval and still waiting on federal? I know they come from two different places but my state was approved this morning! Still stuck on 9001 with federal! Today is 4 weeks since I verified over the phone! Hopefully with my state getting approved federal will come soon! Fingers crossedMarch 25, 2019 at 10:17 pm #4319895
I filed 1/28 was accepted 1/29
Received 5071c letter 2/14 called and verified my identity 2/15 w tax advocate. No update still. Been reading this form .trying to be patient.. so I called this morning it has been 6 weeks and the tax advocate never put me back in the processing que. So of course this one supposedly put me back into processing 😭 so supposed to wait the 9 weeks. But I’m going to call again next Monday to make sure I’m in the processing que 😡March 25, 2019 at 8:58 pm #4319880
Not sure if this will help anyone, but here is my story.
I filed 01/26, accepted 01/28. I went from processing to still processing and then I received the infamous error 9001 and my one bar vanished. I called in and was told it was a system error and to ignore it. A few days later I called in again and was told it was due to incorrect wages and I would be receiving a letter in the next 6 weeks or so with the “next steps”. My letter came and it was a 5071C. I verified 03/11 online and that following weekend I updated from and as of 2/25 that was stuck to a 04/01. Apparently when your as of date starts moving again that means you are back in processing. I called in just to make sure and the phone rep said my verify was good. Next week came and my as of pushed out to 04/08.
A few things I’m noticing. A lot of people flagged for this either filed early or with TT. Secondly, people who verify in person hands down are getting much faster refunds. Lastly, those who keep calling seem to get theirs flagged for additional time.
I wish everyone the best of luck as this truly sucks! I would just keep an eye on your transcripts as that normally gives you more up to date information over WMR.March 25, 2019 at 12:54 pm #4319758
I e filed on 3/7/19
It pass 1 week then it says on wmr we cannot provide any info at the moment topic 152
Ref code 9001 i call the irs guy told me it was processing to wait the 21 days but didn’t mentiond the ref code call today and the lady tells me i have to wait 6 to 8 weeks for processing because it says on the system there’s some errors on 3/28 is my 21 days so i dont know what to beleiveMarch 25, 2019 at 10:41 am #4319737
March 22 my transcript finally showed but no ddd date yet it does have a processing date of April 8th but I was told that date means they have until that day to finish processing my return my cycle date says it was put back into cycle March 21st the irs rep said normally ur refund will deposit 2 weeks from cycle date so that would be the first part of April 🤷♀️ Hopefully that is trueMarch 25, 2019 at 10:34 am #4319733
I filed in January and was accepted in January I assume. Kept getting error 9001 when checking WMR. SO on March 1st or 2nd, I contacted IRS and they informed me that I was flagged for needing to be verirified. I never received the letter because I moved. I Went into local office on 3/6 to verify identity in person. 2 weeks went by and still didn’t have any update on WMR and my transcript was still showing N/A. On March 19th I called again and spoke with a tax advocate. They informed me that my identity showed as verified but the agent forgot to put me back into the processing queue. On March 22nd my transcript finally showed up and on March 23rd, WMR finally updated with DDD of March 27th.March 25, 2019 at 10:11 am #4319729
my transcript cycle code says 20191105 dated 4/1/19 which is 11 weeks. So I just decided to try to figure out where the 11 week part came from and I went back to the day I was accepted 1/14 and my 11 weeks will end on 4/1. So I’m guessing I wont see any movement until 4/1 which is my process date on my transcript……March 25, 2019 at 8:36 am #4319716
It seems like all of us who verified on 2/25 are having this issue smhMarch 25, 2019 at 4:41 am #4319686
@nene I’ve ID verified On 2/25 still no update or ddd yet!March 25, 2019 at 2:12 am #4319681
I also have code 9001 with tax topic 152 i went to local irs office 3/1/19 to verify a and said it will be processing i called two later cause same code is showing rep said nothing is wrong just to wait my 9 weeks but i have seen people get their return back the same day or a week later after verifying every case is different but does it really take 9 weeksMarch 24, 2019 at 12:29 am #4319540
I filed 1/30 I’d verify online 2/27 told processing again called back 3/11 told reversal code was not entered had to call id verify number and have code reversed called back 3/14 told had to wait so requested tax advocate called back 3/21 told could not get any info because assigned to advocate and transcripts did not update but WMR updated today with DDD so i would recommend making sure hold code was reversed by calling verify number again if been longer than 2 weeksMarch 23, 2019 at 9:49 pm #4319521

I have a code with a processing date March 18th. Nothing happened.
