      After our final W arrived finally today we filed this morning at 11.50am CT, TT email stated at 11.56am that the federal return was accepted.
      That was fast so I hope that the rest will be done fast too…though it was really the longest we ever had to wait for the W2s.

        I filed 1/31/13 and was accepted the same day. On monday when i tried to check my status i was told to call a phone number. I did that only for them to tell me they had no record of me filing and that i should check wmr once a week for any updates. Yesterday i decided to give ordering my transcripts a try since i need them for school anyways. I was able to order my transcripts and then this morning wmr wasn’t working so i called the refund hotline and got a dd of 02/08/13


          hoppeewi, call 800-829-0582 ext.362 Good luck and let us know :)


            Still no date for me. :(


              We filed with turbo tax on 1/30, received acceptance for federal refund via email late on 1/31 (8pm CST).

              I was able to view the status bar on WMR up until yesterday, it showed that our return was accepted and was waiting on refund approval and then refund sent. However this morning I log in to see if there was any updates overnight and now there no bar there any longer and simply says that my return is being processed and a date will be posted when available.

              I call the hotline for IRS and it is unable to give us any information for my social or my husbands. I downloaded the APP to check, and that as well is unable to give us any information.

              Anyone else dealing with this as well? I’d like to call the IRS and speak with someone directly but I have no idea what number to call and which options to push.

              Thank you!


                Hotline said still processing so I called and spoke with a rep again. BUT this rep was really nice and accessed my acct and gave me ddd 2/8. Now I have some peace. It was worth the 10 minute hold time.


                  No DD, can’t order transcripts. :( Hopefully later today those of us that don’t have a dd will get them too, or then can just deposit the money.. I wouldn’t complain.


                    Same here…WMR website isn’t wrking for me since yesterday…hotline gives DD for 02/08/13…don’t think that we’ll get it earlier with Wells Fargo but now I can sleep better.


                      Woke up to the website not working for me. So I called the 1-800 number and got a deposit date of 2/8!!!


                        Filed and accepted late on 1/31 with TaxAct.
                        Able to order transcript at 10:15 pm ct on 2/4.
                        DD 2/8 on 2/6 via 800#.
                        No luck with WMR.


                          Still processing, no DD date

                          what gives, the IRS is very slow this year


                            I am in the same situation. Locked out this morning. Maybe wmr hasn’t updated yet in CST? I’ll check it again when I get the kids off to school. I have been accepted and processing since 1/30.


                              Filed and Accepted through HRB 01/31, WMR site says in processing ever since, automated IRS phone number says same thing.

                              Tried ordering transcripts this morning with no luck!

                              I am currently under a payment plan on 2011 federal taxes, not sure if that will slow it down or not?


                                JeepGirl try the 800 the wmr site couldn’t find my fiancé either and hes got a dd of 2/8 according to 800 number


                                  Accepted on 1/31….just checked Where’s My Refund (WMR) & am still getting the message like I’m locked out? Was processing w/21 day message now nothing? WTH??? I got my state refund deposited today…what could be going on?


                                    I finally have a ddd! I exiled 1/30 and it was accepted 1/31. I was able to order my transcript yesterday.


                                      fiancés taxes
                                      Date Filed: 1/31 at 8pm through tt recd within minutes was able to check wmr immediately,never got weird messages and never ghosted, unsure about transcripts scared to try lolgot approved n dd today for 1/8

                                      mine were filed through tt at 430ish and accepted within minutes able to check wmr immediately ghosted once no dd I however did not file last year as I had no income in 2011 and im claiming my daughter for eic so that may be my hold up

                                      sorry for typos typing with one hand while feeding the baby but just very happy after the fiasco I had with hrb in the middle of the month which is why I refilled on 1/31


                                        And now i just checked WMR and put in $1779 and it says refund day of 02/06


                                          I was accepted 01/31 at 2AM, the WMR site and phone wouldnt tell me anything, then this morning, BAM – $1779 – i think it wasnt working because my refund was supposed to be $1691 and for whatever reason i got $1779. So anybody else that is in this position, keep your head up – its coming.


                                            @Narissa…thanks! So not worth it to stay awake then. I had hoped I could have slept a little better with the knowledge of a DD date.


                                              @Peanut3010 from 3 30 am to 4 or 6 am. something like that i believe


                                                Does anybody know what time WMR usually updates?


                                                  @txgirl- my wmr hasnt updated and probably wont until in the morning. i called at about 9 am and it was processing. then at 4 pm and it was accepted with a dd of the 8th.


                                                    That is great news. I’ve seen a couple of other people on the main page who were accepted on the 31st say that they called and got a dd of the 8th. It makes me tempted to call but Id hate to waste an hour of my life on the phone when I may or may not get the answer Im looking for :/ I am definitely hoping this means we will start seeing updates on wmr!


                                                      That’s great. Has WMR updated for you? Hoping that is the date for all of us waiting for an update.


                                                        I called earlier and after being transferred 4 times got a dd for 1/8. i had called earlier and they didnt give me one. Hope this helps. Approved 1/31


                                                          Uhhh…Scratch that. I am in the 1/31 forum. OOps


                                                            I thought it was odd since other people have reported speaking to people and getting actual info. Maybe I will call tommorrow if I don’t see any updates. When was your return accepted?


                                                              txgirl- Obviosuly what the IRS lady told you is incorrect since people have been receiving their deposits. I bet if you called and spoke to a different lady, she’d tell you something different. They always do that. Every year I read about random things the IRS people tell everyone. Nothing ever matches up.


                                                                I keep trying to order a transcript and it keeps saying my address doesn’t match, but when I call IRS and they verify my address, I’m fine. I was told I was accepted on the 29th by TT, but yesterday the irs lady told me i was accepted the 31st and today a different lady (REALLY NICE) told me they’ve had my return since the 30th. I don’t know what in the hell is going on but I am getting annoyed with people getting DD’s who filed and were accepted after me. Just goes to show, never count on your tax refund before it’s actually in your hand.


                                                                  I was accepted using TT on 1/30. Still no dd. I called IRS and was told they are not even allowed to open/access anyone’s account until after 21 days have passed. I am hesitant to order transcript. Seems like some who were accepted 1/30 have date(some $) Im in the waiting game.


                                                                    Hmm well I was able to get my transcript. I’ve never had any issue with tax refunds, usually get them pretty quickly.

                                                                    A friend of mine filed on the 30th and her money was deposited this morning. She used TaxAct just like I did.


                                                                      umm, didn’t mean for that first one to post…sorry.

                                                                        Please check here or use our free mobile app, IRS2Go, to check on your refund status.

                                                                        I did go to my FAFSA and use the IRS retrieval tool which did pull up my info for this year…basically a transcript, the info was there. So if it is any indication, my transcript is available but I still don’t have a DD.


                                                                          No update for me yet, still reading We have received your tax return and it is being processed.

                                                                            About transcripts: Many people believe that being able to order a transcript means that their return has been processed and this is true. However, people who deal with ID theft, reviews, holds, etc… can also order a transcript fairly quickly after filing. I’ve experienced this myself. So I would take it with a grain of salt if you can order transcripts. It’s a good thing that you have been processed but that is NOT an indicator that a deposit is right around the corner. Every filer will be different. So it’s up to you if you take it as good news or not.

                                                                            Good luck everyone :)


                                                                              I was accepted 1/31 and still have the 21 day message… what gives?? I kinda liked having even an estimated date to work with..I am not liking this new “bar” system. I filed through TaxAct & chose to have my fees taken out of my Federal Refund…will this make it take longer? I usually always pay out of my checking acct, but didn’t have the money to at the point I filed my taxes. Anyone have any info on filing this way?



                                                                                Filed 1/29 accepted 1/30. WMR said processing from 1/31 to 2/4. Now says it’s processing and a refund date will be provided when available. I was able to order the return transcript, does that mean my return was processed?


                                                                                  Last year we never got a DD date and the money just appeared one day on our bank account.
                                                                                  This year we’ll have to juggle a bit more because my husband was in the hospital for a month and I missed a lot of work due to that myself. He won’t get a short term disability payment as we had hoped he would so this tax return will be having to work as a paycheck…unfortunately.


                                                                                    Nsullivan… Some people think the

                                                                                        I’m sorry, I know this has been posted a million times but what is the point in ordering a transcript? This means they’ve processed it?





                                                                                            Yanking… You can google “order transcript irs” and it sho


                                                                                              I did finally get an update on WRM, my return is being processed

                                                                                              I am no longer a ghost, I suppose that’s a step in the right direction lol

                                                                                              How do you order a transcript ?


                                                                                                So excited this morning! I am finally not a ghost! I know to those of you who have already been “in processing” this isn’t big news for you, however, I hope that means some of you will wake up to a DD this morning! So glad to be acknowledged finally!!! Made my day!


                                                                                                  YES WOOHOOO I was able to order my transcript just seconds ago!! I wasn’t able to order them earlier today. WMR still says return received though and the 21 day message. Hopefully later on in the AM there will be a DD date. It would be cool if DD was tomorrow though. off to check the efile bank site to see if they have any requests to deposit the refund. I am finally happy that SOMETHING is happening.

                                                                                                  Keeping my fingers crossed for all of those who are still in limbo.


                                                                                                    Never mind, I just ordered my transcripts! Yea! Maybe I will see a dd date in the am!


                                                                                                      Lindsey It just means try again. Mine said it was not yet available earlier today, and then successful tonight.


                                                                                                        I just tried to order a transcript, and it said they are having technical difficulties and to try again later. Does this mean just to try later, or it’s not available to get yet?


                                                                                                          @Tanika Maybe so.

                                                                                                          I also successfully ordered a return transcript at about 10:15 pm central time. So hoping it means something good.


                                                                                                            @cassiescash have you been checking it throughout the day? Sometimes itll lock you out like it did to me a couple of times cause I OCD on checking it. Try again around midnight or so cause sometimes itll update around then too


                                                                                                              WMR and IRS2go can no longer find me.:( boo. Anyone else just go missing?


                                                                                                                Good news maybe? I was just able to order our return transcript at like 9.53pm CT.
                                                                                                                Filed 01/31/13 via TT, got accepted like 6 min after filing a little bit before noon.

                                                                                                                So let’s hope we’ll have some WMR changes in the morning.

                                                                                                                By the way…I wasn’t able to get into WMR today at all….tried the first time at around 8am…no luck!


                                                                                                                  I am getting kind of irritated. My sister in law filed 2/1 and ready has a dd of 2/6. That’s five days come on IRS. My daughter ended up in the hospital for a week, so I am less that pay. I am kind of freaking out.


                                                                                                                    I was accepted 1/31 and still the return is processing. I don’t understand what is taking so long? I haven’t called and spoken with a person but I am thinking that I might do that if I don’t move from accepted to approved soon. I know people that filed after I did and have their return already.


                                                                                                                      So glad to hear that some of y’all who called the IRS today got NICE reps. I however, did NOT! The man I spoke with gave me no info whatsoever. I didn’t give him any kind of excuse… I just told him that I have been a ghost the whole time on WMR and that I was concerned because of previous years ID theft. He was so RUDE! Not just that he wasn’t helpful… he was a real pain in the a**! Anyway, he told ME that I had to wait 3 weeks to show up on WMR… I knew he obviously was new this year and thanked him for his ‘help’ and hung up.

                                                                                                                      I am only going to check once a day until Friday. If I haven’t had any kind of update as of Friday I am going to call again and hopefully get a nice rep :)

                                                                                                                      Hoping for DD’s for all of us 31’ers!


                                                                                                                        Filed and accepted late 1/31/13 with TaxAct.
                                                                                                                        Transcript not available, still processing, 21 day generic message.


                                                                                                                          also if it’s not known. Those who e-filed and paid with e-collect can check if the bank has a date, etc at the following link



                                                                                                                            Mine is also still processing. I filed and was approved 1/31. Information was available instantly on WMR, so today still processing and I was afraid that me filing again without the 8863 is what happened and I was going to be in tax limbo for 6 months.
                                                                                                                            Anyway, I called IRS and the lady checked and said the first one was rejected and I needed to get it back so I wont have any problems(i filed that one with TT so hopefully since it’s been rejected they will release it for me), and then she said although I filed again (e-file this time) and received email stating I was accepted by IRS that her office(accounts, i think) didn’t actually receive my info to process it until today. She said me saying I was accepted meant it went through fraud, and ssn verification, etc. and 72 hours after is when her office receives it.

                                                                                                                            ANYWAY LOL She told me to check again and by Friday I should either have the money or have a date. So back to the waiting game and hopefully that helps someone a little better. :)



                                                                                                                              Sounds like the IRS is got a big backlog of returns


                                                                                                                                Just called the IRS. My return was e-filed and accepted 1/31. On WMR and the hotline it says my info was entered incorrectly. The IRS agent told me that since we just went through the weekend it needs more time. She said it needs 24-48 business hours to show up on WMR. So idk. She said if I don’t get an update tomorrow then to call them back.

Called and they have it, but my name is listed wrong with the IRS, so I may not get my refund without sending in documents (that I can’t send in until they send me a letter, the rep told me not to bother, they will get lost). I really hope that we start seeing 1/31 dd dates soon, at least then I will know if it’s coming or if I’m stuck waiting until after the 20th. :(


                                                                                                                                      I wish they’d give us some info! I haven’t seen any 2/8 DD so hopefully we will see that date tomorrow! I hate not knowing anything!!



                                                                                                                                        LoL at least your is showing on WMR


                                                                                                                                          Mine is still saying processing. ugh!


                                                                                                                                            Filed and accepted 1/31/13 through TT. WMR and hotline says my info was entered incorrectly. Getting frustrated. I wish I could at least find myself on WMR. :(


                                                                                                                                              Waiting and waiting

                                                                                                                                              Still no update on WMR, I am beginning to think there may be a problem

                                                                                                                                              Waiting and Waiting

                                                                                                                                                @yanking – i’m going through the same thing i’m not getting anything on the 800# either. I was accepted on 1/30 i got the email that the IRS accepted around 5 am so i’m guess i may fall inot the 01/31 date.


                                                                                                                                                  I just thought it was a bit odd WMR is not showing anything in regards to my return other than the initial email indicating it had been accepted


                                                                                                                                                    Keep in mind alot of people accepted on the 30th actually filed on the 29th and earlier. Ive seen very few who filed on the 30th getting a date yet, its still a little early!


                                                                                                                                                      It looks like those who filed on the 30th and earlier are getting deposit dates for the most part so I think those accepted on the 31st will get a date within the next day or so. I was accepted late on the 30th so I probably fit more into the 31st group


                                                                                                                                                        Mine was accepted on the 31 Jan Got the accepted email from the IRS, but no status on WMR What gives ?


                                                                                                                                                          Files 1/31 around 2 am Accepted 1/31 around 5am Still waiting on the processing this is horribly nerve racking…


                                                                                                                                                            Congrats Amy! There’s hope for us yet :)

                                                                                                                                                            However, I am still a ghost this morning. Hesitated to check since I didn’t see many with a change. Try again tomorrow and if by Tuesday a.m. I am still a ghost I guess I’ll try to give them a call.
