    #4324456 Reply


    From my experience I did the waiting game, I filed 2/18 and got a 45 day review and a 90 day review letter…the IRS would not tell me anything… I decided to call and request a TA exactly one week ago… TA called me Tuesday morning to tell me she got my refund released. I checked my transcript today and I have a refund issued date of 4/23/19.. my employer issued a corrected w2… which I used the corrected w2 information to file but apparently the IRS didn’t update with the corrected information. Had I not called a TA to see what was going on… I would still be waiting til May or June over something that the TA figured out in a couple days…

    I filed on March 21, 2019. For the first week and a half the WMR app said received and processing, then I lost my bars and it says still processing. It’s been 28 days today since I filed so I called the IRS today and they told me I’m under a 45 day review starting on April 29th, 2019. That puts me not getting my refund until June 13 at the earliest. WTF?

    Filed & accepted 1/29. Bars disappeared early Feb. with PATH notice. 2/15 PATH notice gone & received a letter saying I was under review for 45 days starting 2/27. Long story short, my 45 days was up 3 days ago smh. Called IRS today and was told there was nothing I needed to do on my end & that my refund was frozen for an unknown reason. He then told me he put in a referral since it’s been past my 45 days. I haven’t gotten any other letters.

    Cycle code 20190902 and the date March 18,2019 received a review letter for March 25, 2019 45 days . I called IRS they said if I don’t get my refund by May 9,2019 call them back .. I tried to call for an TA but they say I don’t qualify so I guess I have to wait this out . Please let me know if anyone gets an answer keep me posted

    Turned out one of my w2s didnt make it through. So now my tax lady is saying ill owe over 2,000 to irs if i send it. Weve always got back round same amount & nothings ever changed. Which makes no sense the only reason i got 2 w2s cause the store i work at went under new ownership. So recieved one from old & new owners. Can i still refile after the irs already sent me a 60 day letter review.? I feel as if shes screwing me.

    I feel the same way. I’m tired of it working on my nerves every single day. I still haven’t received my 45 day review notice. I’m truly at a loss. I’m trying to give it a little longer but I don’t know how much longer I will be able to hold on. 😰

    Here is my story. I filed on 3/4, accepted 3/6 and since then IRS check my refund status lists: Still processing. Called them on 3/22, spoke with a rep who said they had not entered my information yet, but nothing abnormal and to check back in a week. Fast forward to today. Called the IRS, spoke with an agent who said that my account had a 45-day hold because of a technical issue. He also said that there was nothing wrong nor were they going to send a letter. said should be processed by 4/20… Anyone else deal with this before?

    So here is my story, filed 1/29 accepted 2/5 got a 45 day review letter starting on 3/18 a week later got a 60 day review letter again for 3/18. Called IRS and they said the 60 day letter must have been a glitch because they don’t have it on record. Called a tax advocate 2 weeks ago and they said I should have my refund in the next 7 to 10 days.

    #4323234 Reply


    I agree completely! The longer they hold our refunds, the more interest they get. I also feel like when the irs started to process our returns, they were already way behind. So in an effort to not make EVERYONE’S refund late, they pushed all the January and early February to the back of the lime. That allowed them to start processing late February and beyond returns on time. That’s why we are seeing people who filed in March already having a ddd. Seriously, why would those of us who filed January and early February be under “review” but those who filed late February and March are not under review?!? I believe whole heartily that the irs is just sending us reviews as a stall tactic!. They are processing a few early filers here and there but I don’t think they will totally complete ours until they have all the March and April returns completed. That’s the only thing I can figure that’s going on.

    Wow if we owed the government they would just take it but if they owe us it takes forever.

    Filed and was accepted 1/29
    Had bars till the 15th of February
    Then the processing message
    I did get the letter telling me that I was under a 45 day review but to do nothing.

    I have filed the same way for 11 years. Same everything so why all of a sudden a review. I think they are collecting interest on all these refunds and are waiting till the last minute to release them.

    #4322942 Reply



    No, some people on here have no clue what their talking about. The IRS has 45 days AFTER April 15 to send the refund. That puts it at the end of May. Don’t think you’re going to see your “4% interest” starting Monday.

    #4322940 Reply


    Exact same thing is going on with mine. Accepted 2/11 bars went missing middle of March… Called and said a 45 day review. First week if April got a letter saying an ADDITIONAL 60days for review..
    I have had it but I do t want to contact a tax advocate to drag it out even longer uggghh please everyone keep each other updated !!!

    #4322761 Reply


    Is it true if you’re in 45 day review by the irs,on April 15 the irs will have to pay interest.

    @maddie you’re in the EXACT same boat as me. I’m literally right beside you. Filed and accepted 2/12 ~45 day review 3/25 and 60 day review 3/29. Can’t see transcript online, I’ve ordered them about a week ago but have yet to receive them.

    Good possibility! I have never had to verify identity or anything before. This is all new to me.

    @Raven8300 Yeah but I think me calling made them put me on the review cause I filed on early February. Smh. I’m not gonna call or sweat it anymore. First time this ever happen to me. I do verify every year but it takes no more than 2-3 weeks after I verify to get deposit.

    #4322244 Reply


    Everybody on this thread is because you have submitted invalid returns or w2’s and now you can’t get away with it no more. Maybe not all. But you know I’m right. No one here has gotten any refund and never will.

    #4322243 Reply


    @Alx D I have called twice and received generic responses both times. I’m starting to think I just need to let the junk go and maybe one day I’ll check my account and be pleasantly surprised. Seems like that may be around June or July now though SMFH

    @Raven8300 Yeap same here. The agent gave me a vague answer like “oh sometimes the code is there but the notice / letter won’t go out unless taxpayer calls”. Bunch of BS. I should have done like before and let it ride.

    I had id verify. Did so on 3/8. I called and I think that’s what screws everything up. Agen told me He needs time to look up account but took like 10 mins. Came back and said I’m on 45 day review. I have a feeling I should have just waited like every other year.

    They can tell you what’s wrong. The IRS the old me 2 weeks ago that I would a letter April 6. Today the advocate contacted me and said my wages hadn’t been reported. We have a CPA and of course they had been reported. There was a glitch during the shut down and W2’s were lost. Fill out the form and fax it in. They are very helpful. My issue has been resolved!

    Soo. I received 3 letters. 2 from Philadelphia and one from Chamblee, Ga. Haven’t read them as I am out of town ( live in Washington state ) but I got the USPS delivery notice. Fonts on the face of the letter from GA are different from Philly. 👀 Seems kinda weird. Why would they send me any correspondence from GA ? No one home to open them for me. F”n sucks that idk what’s going on. Don’t wanna call, seems that’s pushing ppl further away from DDD. But did call on the 8th. Nothing wrong. Wondering if it’s a scam?

    #4319845 Reply


    Still waiting since 2/5. Got the 60 day letter dated 3/14. Transcripts haven’t updated since 2/23 when I got the 570 code. Transcripts still don’t say anything about any letter being sent. I’ve called for a TA twice and was told I didn’t qualify b/c I didn’t have an eviction or cut-off notice. Called the IRS twice and was told 2 completely different things and neither said I was sent a letter which was after I received it in the mail.

    I wish we actually had a little power to get our own money back. I am now exempt and will not pay the fed gov’t a dollar more of my money and will file on 4/15 next year. this is 100% BS!

    Keep your heads up!

    Filed 1/28, Accepted 1/29.

    Played the waiting game since… 2/28th was told as of 3/4 I would be on a 45 day review, 3/16 received a letter stating I was now on a 60 day review as of 3/13. Check WMR on saturday and my DDD is 3/27. Do not believe anything those IRS agents are telling you, hell they said they sent out a letter that was never sent then told me they cant tell me what the letter said because they only have a “generic” version. I work in HR, we do not send out ANYTHING without a copy in case there was “questions or concerns”… The IRS is so far behind because of the shut down that they HAD to send out “under review” letters because they were playing catch up. Unless you have a letter specifically telling you to take action, then its just a matter of waiting. Keep your heads up :)

    Same boat,
    Filed feb 11th
    Processing February 20th but no bars, so i patiently waited.
    Still nothing so called March 21st & they said it was under review starting March 26th I start counting my 45 days. Nothings ever changed on our taxes, so its a major bummer. This has put a toll on us financially, Thank God I have an amazing boss. Without his loan idk what we would of done cause Tax Avacates cant help unless IRS gives u a date of your return. & unfortunately when its under review you wont get one, so we basically sit & wait till they get to it. 😕

    Man this is BS. I just got a cp 05 letter saying in under review for 45 days AGAIN. The same exact review happened to me last year. The review lasted 5 months and then they released it to the audit department and that crap took 4 more months and when I did get my refund it was reduced to a few hundred dollars. I could seriously scream.

    So I’m not let down again this year I’m going to expect a refund of $20 and to receive it in a YEAR!

    I called the irs this morning because yesterday started my 45 day review…they’re now waiting for my employers to respond with employment/wage verification…I can’t get a TA because i’m not “going through a real hardship” so being a single mom currently struggling is easy?

    #4317078 Reply


    It appears they’re buying time w/ our money. For whatever reason, Anyone who filed the 1st 2 weeks in Feb have been delayed. Look through these forums and pretty much everyone still waiting is from those 2 weeks.

    I have heard a lot of different excuses. New software, the gov’t shutdown, new fraud detection but 0 of any of that has ever been officially recognized as the reason.

    My only hope is that I have now started to see folks w/ my same trans code and processing date getting their refunds or at least a DDD.

    I’ve written off this year for the most part. Filed EXEMPT on this year’s taxes so I get all my money up front, in my paychecks. I AM NOT going through this again next year and if you think the IRS will go back to making things easier I’m sorry you’re so naive.

    Good luck to all of you. I hope we all get our returns before next year comes around.

    How is that everyone’s reviews are on the same day and all the info the IRS is giving is exactly the same. I also got a review date starting 3/11 then another agent said 3/18 then back to 3/11. Our letter was supposed to have been sent out on 3/2 but we haven’t received anything. We are falling behind on all our bills because they want to play games. I check the app everyday hoping for a miracle but things are not looking good.

    I can honesty tell all, from Prior experience last year, if there behind, and it sounds like the IRS is, your 45 day review Can and might turn into Another 45 day review.

    @Etta – Aye.. my 45, if there really is such a thing, supposedly starts today. I’ve just been sitting on my thumbs since 2/5. I called a Tax Advocate and he told me to give them 14 days past the 11th to get it done. Absolutely no help at all. I’m just sitting here waiting… and waiting.. and waiting..

    I didn’t give in and call until yesterday. Filed HOH 1/31. Yesterday was told my review seemed to have started February 4th, and my 45 days looked to be up March 20th. I know she is incorrect because they didn’t begin any reviews that early. I received a letter today confirming the review. I am just going to be very late paying my electric bill this month because apparently having no money for food is not a hardship for an advocate. It is ok, though. I also got her to say on the phone call March 20th sooooo I will eligible then for advocate for them not meeting their own date.
