Can anyone outline what happened after ID Verify?
1. When did WMR update?
2. When was your DDD?
June 19, 2018 at 10:38 pm #4248027
Call the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM – 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: “Refund”, or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for “personal income tax” instead.
Then press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.
Then press 3 “for all other questions.”
Then press 2 “for all other questions.”
– When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don’t enter anything.
– After it asks twice, you will get another menu.
Then press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
It should then transfer you to an agentJune 16, 2018 at 12:08 am #4247968
I can never figure out how to get an actual person on the damn phone I’m so frustrated with this automated bull crap I need to talk to a human. Been 9 weeks since ID verification and no updates or lettersJune 15, 2018 at 4:51 pm #4247962
On the phone with the irs again. Ugh. No letters or anything it’s been 13 weeks since Id verifyJune 14, 2018 at 4:02 pm #4246732
Yea you guys this entire thing sucks huge hairy horse balls! I’m beyond over it and done myself. They owe me thousands!June 14, 2018 at 4:00 pm #4247849
We’re all going to be filing taxes next year still waiting for this year. Absolutely fucking ridiculous !June 13, 2018 at 12:05 am #4247876
@Charna, your tax situation and times of the letters you received are exactly the same as mine. Same letters, same dates. My CP05 is a 45 day hold also.June 12, 2018 at 10:27 pm #4247870
@Charna, and Get an Advocate ASApP! You loosing your place will qualify. The number to call is on this forum. Best of luck, this year is friggin unreal!June 12, 2018 at 10:17 pm #4247866
@charna: Typical the CP05 letter is a 60 day hold followed by yet another hold if you call at the end of the first. They then will tell you either you have gotten an ID verify letter in the mail, which of course you haven’t, OR…. they will tell you that they will “send a letter to the other dept. to take the hold off” which will take another 30-60 days. I’m going in Friday to ID verify in person, then another 9 weeks for me. A complete dumpster fire this year for sure. Best practice ALL of us can do is to complain to congressmen and women much like the Indiana Congresswomen is calling out the IRS.June 12, 2018 at 8:12 pm #4247864

I NEED ANSWERS im at my wits end>>>>>>June 10, 2018 at 11:42 am #4247784
Thank you @spooky ridesJune 10, 2018 at 4:15 am #4247775
i filed back in April 1 range. I never heard anything, never got any letters I called them thursday for the first time, they said i should have gotten a ID verification in the mail. Today just got it. Will call monday and FINALLY be put in the que to get my deposit and this nightmare ended.June 9, 2018 at 5:24 pm #4247761
I got a tax advocate and even tho I had wait a month before I got her it still only took probably a month before I actually had got my money. They always can authorize to get your funds quickly released and they offer this thing if you having financial struggles to release some of your fundsJune 9, 2018 at 12:47 pm #4247754
@Treena: “being processed” is further along then “still being processed” which we have had since the beginning of February sadly enough.June 9, 2018 at 11:10 am #4247752
Mines says “still being processed,” while some of yours show the “being processed” message. Is this another delay for me? I filed last min. My 9th week is Jul 17.June 9, 2018 at 11:08 am #4247750
Why does mine say “still being processed,” while some poo f you have the “being processed” message. Is this another delay for me. My 9 weeks is July 17th. I filed last minute.June 9, 2018 at 10:17 am #4247748
Johnb, my tax professional said calling them is the worst thing we can do. It gets us flagged for other things.June 9, 2018 at 9:47 am #4247746
You are definitely spot on. Most corrupt system I’ve ever seen. If I can’t get answers I’m gonna call them every damn day until I get some. This is ridiculous. I’ve filed the same way and near the same amount for years . If I have to go through this next year I might not even file. But I bet they’ll penalize the hell out of me if I don’t. It’s a lose lose situation.
I hope everything works out with your return and your business. We just have to keep our heads upJune 9, 2018 at 7:41 am #4247740
Congratulations Meisha!!!! Think of those of us less fortunate!!! LolJune 8, 2018 at 8:48 pm #4247722
@Marty B I filed the middle of February I believe I’ve been at the same job and filed the same kids for 9 and 10 years I did work a lil part time job which wasn’t for that long I finally got a DDD date for June 13 about time.June 8, 2018 at 6:44 pm #4247720
I verified 9 weeks ago for them not to process my taxes went in to verify how long did y’all wait before u received ur returnJune 8, 2018 at 3:44 pm #4247710
@johnb I agree 100%! We lost a ton of money starting a small business as I’m not counting on social security to feed us years from now. We sunk every penny we had into it, lost allot but set us up for this year to be much better. Without the refund, I can’t buy in bulk so we’re suffering business wise and 5 damn months later, still no friggin’ answers. And I work full time in another job. They get there money every two weeks, where the hell is mine?!? I assure you I won’t File next year until the last minute. Most corrupt form of government ever!June 8, 2018 at 1:38 pm #4247706
i think its a load of bullshit. if they were issues they should have let me amend my return. And start over. im not even counting on it anymore. I thought they had to tell us whats going on. guess not. But they sure do get their money out of my hard earned paycheck every week before i even get it.June 7, 2018 at 9:51 pm #4247679
@Johnb They are under orders to investigate anything they see wrong that shows thru the multiple new filters they have in place. But…. even after Idenitfing your identity, they still won’t tell you what’s wrong or how you can expedite your return, which is wrong. To hold hostage your tax money due for this long is a crime unto itself. But zero accountability and still after filing myself 5 months ago, zero answers. SadJune 7, 2018 at 7:10 pm #4247675
I dont think they know whats going on. What did they tell you when u called. I havent gotten a review notice or anything. Next years sequel “THE IRS BULLSHIT CONTINUES”June 7, 2018 at 7:57 am #4247635
Verified my identity that should say. Sorry.June 7, 2018 at 7:57 am #4247633
Well, I am now under a 45 day review after I verified my refund. Just got the paperwork yesterday CP05 form. Lovely!June 6, 2018 at 10:34 pm #4247624
Ddd still unknown
Anybody have any updated news so the wait time? Has anybody received theirs yet?June 6, 2018 at 10:14 pm #4247621
@Johnb: “9 more weeks”. Yup just what I was thinking…. more stall tactics, just to buy time if for nothing else. All these new filters, the stupid Path Act, by now the dishonest guys have found ways around all this, yet the working folks continue to get the shaft! Coming to a tax refund for you: “Dumpster Fire 2018” And….. just wait for next years sequel!!!June 6, 2018 at 9:46 pm #4247619
Was told the last lady i talked to didnt complete verification. The lady i talled to monday completed it and for me to check wmr friday but i could have to wait another 9 weeks . I think they are just not wanting to admit they cant do their jobs.June 6, 2018 at 9:18 pm #4247615
I can answer the question of this thread easily! The answer is to damn long!June 5, 2018 at 6:45 pm #4247561
OH and my WMR still hasn’t updated yet! Still processing! My ass. They need to cancel the suckfests they’re doing daily in that office and get to actually processing refunds!June 5, 2018 at 6:44 pm #4247559
Idk about the rest of ya. But IF/when I get my return I’m definitely gonna treat myself to a steak dinner!June 5, 2018 at 4:20 pm #4247555
@joshua, sounds like you were on the first 60 day hold now onto the next 60 day release. If you called I’m sure they gave you the ole’ “ we will write the other dept. to release your funds. It can take anywhere from 30 to 60 days to happen”. I agree that what’s more frustrating then not getting the money is the complete lack of any specific info on what the issue is. As tax payers we should at very least be sent a specific letter and a better understanding of the issues. You can never get a straight answer out of them. Rubbish’! Complete dumpster fire this year!June 5, 2018 at 3:41 pm #4247551
@joshua Moore, what did you find out?June 5, 2018 at 3:22 pm #4247549
Hey all, I filed my return on 2/19/18 on 3/7/18 received my 4883C notice to verify. I verified on 3/13/18, and was told to that it would take 9 weeks for my return to be processed. I would check periodically, and my status still says:We have received your tax return and it is being processed. I am now at the 12 week mark and still no change. I consider myself a patient individual and I am aware that the IRS is handling massive loads of returns. How about sending a letter or something to inform citizens about what is taking so long or if any additional information is warranted. I’m sure if the we as citizens owed money, there would be penalties attached to accounts for not adhering to deadlines. I’m calling today to find out what issue(s) may be hindering my tax return from being released. Wish me luck!June 5, 2018 at 11:14 am #4247538
Update: called tax adovacate & my wages are off. Smh waited this whole time just to know now I’m STILL not going to get it. So now I have to amend. I should have been called them a long time ago.June 5, 2018 at 3:45 am #4247526
Congratulations Tee!!!!! You verified a day after me, this gives me hope!!!! Although, my WMR still hasn’t updated yet!!!June 5, 2018 at 3:19 am #4247524
Received letter 3/16
LETS JUST HOPE EVERYTHING’S FINE SMHJune 4, 2018 at 10:24 pm #4247514
Johnb, how’s that go for ya? Keep up updated!June 4, 2018 at 4:32 pm #4247507
On the phone with irs now. 9 weeks up todayJune 4, 2018 at 7:39 am #4247484
Brianna, I hate to say it, but much like the rest of us, you need a bottle of lube!June 4, 2018 at 4:50 am #4247479
I got a 60 day examination letter April 12th. 60 days will be June 11th. It’s June 4th & still nothing. The guy who did my taxes said he spoke with Irs & they said they were going to release my return June 2nd or 3rd but it still says processing on Where’s My Refund. I was hoping it said that because it’s the weekend but I thought it would still update on the weekend. But I also heard that some people got there return even though their WMR status showed “processing”. I filed February 14 though. I’m about to just give tf up.June 4, 2018 at 12:51 am #4247470
Still waiting for mine as well went in and verified on March 13th it’s been 7 weeks and my refund is pretty small. Just wanted to pay a couple bills lol hoping everyday for an updateJune 3, 2018 at 3:23 am #4247442
Cedes, your next letter will either be a “review” letter or that 60 day examination letter that’s going around. Neither are good. But I could be wrong but typically, from what I’ve seen on here, that’s exactly what you’re getting. Get ya some lube and pray for the best!June 3, 2018 at 2:09 am #4247440
@marty b the wmr still saying the same o thing “your refund is processing and the etc”.. I called Friday and was told I suppose to be getting another letter so hopefully this last letter whatever they need will let them give me my money!! This have been a long journey I been growing gray hairJune 2, 2018 at 2:39 pm #4247432
Still waitingJune 2, 2018 at 11:31 am #4247430
I am still here waiting too.June 2, 2018 at 9:52 am #4247428
@Meisha, I filed mine the end of March and mailed them in. Seems most ppl that filed with turbo tax or mailing them in were their targets this year and low income claiming the EIC and CTC.
I claimed all the above and am self employed. They’ve really messed me around as well as many others. It’s very sucky. I get on here and vent often.
I was informed, that when we call the irs to check in on our taxes it can also flag us again. So the least we call them the better off we are. I was told that by a tax professional.June 2, 2018 at 9:02 am #4247426
@MartyB a drink will be much needed to talk about this crap. Next year I’m filing close to the end.June 1, 2018 at 7:39 am #4247380
@Cedes, have you called them or checked your WMR? What’s it say?
