      I have been stuck on this since 1/20 before this I had the accepted bar. This is the first year I filed early was accepted on 1/13 through TT. Normally I file around the second week stuff opens. Anyone else stuck on this or know anything about it? I have topic 152 but that is it. I called and have no hold-ups. Have had the same situation for at least 7 years with nothing changing.

          We filed our taxes electronically in April, they were rejected and soon after we received a letter from IRS about verifying our identity due to identity theft. We took steps to verify identity and then faxed our taxes instead to IRS tax number in early May. Called in August after never hearing anything and was informed our taxes may have been lost due to the amount of taxes they received by fax and I should wait until October checking the refund status before trying to re-file. On October 30,2015 the refund site finally said it was processing….. And today we received another identity verification letter in the mail. To call and speak with someone in the IRS takes over an hour and they usually have me call another number and wait another hour…. Which is difficult because we both work full time. I am overly frustrated with the entire system. Not to mention no one at the IRS phone numbers ever has any idea what’s going on.

            I originally filed electronically but it was rejected due to some using my wife’s SSN to file a fraudulent claim so I wound up sending in paperwork and filing a police report. I received a letter from the IRS which stated to file by paper and it could take up to 180 days to process. I filed by paper in April and all I’ve been getting “you refund is still being processed” and it’s been over 180 days already. It’s anybody’s guess when the status will change.

              I’ve called the IRS countless times and I keep getting the run around even though they say there’s nothing wrong with my return I haven’t received my refund and it’s been 6 MONTHS now !

                My WMR Status has changed from ” Your refund is still being processed” to “We have received your tax return and it is being processed”

                Filed my taxes Jointly with my wife on 2/12/2015 accepted the day after.

                Got a letter to verify our id on 3/5/2015 wasn’t able to get through to verify until 3/23/2015, finally was verified and was told it would take 6 weeks longer to receive my refund.

                6 weeks came and went and after that just kept counting the weeks.

                Went through the steps to get a Tax advocate which really didn’t help.

                Finally after endless calls my wife went to the irs building locally to get tax transcripts for school and re verified id, the lady there said nothing was wrong and that refund should be pushed through. That was on 07/20/2015.

                More weeks went by and WMR still showed “Your refund is still being processed”

                I called again on 8/18/2015 and was told to verify my id again but it showed that the Id had been verified twice before on 3/23/2015 as well as in person by my wife on 7/20/2015, after that was completed she looked into what was going on and I was fed some type of excuse but was told it would be pushed along to the next steps of the processed and it would take an additional 6-9 weeks.

                So a couple weeks went by and I believe on 9/16 or 9/17 of this past month it switch to “We have received your tax return and it is being processed”

                I don’t know how much longer it will stay on that status but it has now been around 2 weeks. I will keep you all updated.

                If anyone has any information on how long it’s suppose to stay like that please reply.

                  So yeah, filed in Feb, 2015 and had to verify my identity about 1 or 2 months later, and now its October 1st, i tried calling a few times but with little/no help and it took so long each time i called that i have almost given up… “still processing”

                    IRS received my amended return 12/15/14. To date 9/25/15, I have not received my amended return. It states we received 12/15/14; and has not been processed.

                  • #4113173

                      I filed my amended return April 23, 2015 (when IRS received it). Today is September 22nd. So that is 5 months. I called two weeks ago, a lady said they have not assigned an officer yet for my file . I called yesterday September 21st the lady said, my refund is processed and the check mail date is Friday September 25th. I do not know where she got this answer from, I checked WMR, today Tuesday September 22nd, still says ” we received your amended return, however it has not been processed. I do not know what to say. Looks like the IRS people do not know what they are talking about. The lady also said, if I do not get my refund within two weeks to give them a call. The automated phone system says, WMR is updated every night, ha ha

                      Lost In Limbo

                        Hello to all Happy Summer
                        I have been waiting for my refund to be re-processed since March 2015.
                        I just happen to win the lottery of ERRORS inputted by IRS. Sadly, I am a former employee from way back when it was 1. less difficult to process taxes and 2. to have the proper knowledge to give correct information. I have been dealing with those that could not speak proper English, understand English, could not pull up a return, could not help and gave wrong information. Advocacy was very difficult and proved that they do not communicate with the tax payer. I have been waiting, calling, faxing and patient. Today after all these months I finally get a call to let me know I have a DDD of this Wednesday 8/12/15
                        mind you I filed in February 2015 was accepted and approved then my return some how some way was coded with an error. I want to let all of you know that consistent calling – faxing- and asking for managers is a big key to get the right answers.
                        I still have friends there but I never ever will put their jobs on the line for those that can not or will not do the job correctly.
                        Be patient, and I do apologize to anyone that is, has or went through what I went through, I had my electric and gas turned off….

                          I filed with turbotax on feb 6, website told me to wait 4 weeks before calling. Called on 3/27 and had to verify my identity. They told me 6 weeks, on 4/27 they told me its not 6 weeks its 9. I called today again, (7 weeks on Friday) and they said if everything goes fine the refund would go on the June 1st release which has a direct deposit date of JUNE 15TH!!!!!!! they are required to send a letter if there is a problem after the 9 weeks.
                          I didn’t get any letter, so when I called they had no answer for me and said I needed to allow another 45 days.
                          Today is day 45, and my status finally changed!!!! it says my refund is scheduled for 8/5, 6 months after I filed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                          GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!!!!

                            It has now been four months since I e-filed my federal tax return. This is the first time in many years that I am getting a refund. The last person I spoke to at the IRS on July 1st, verified my identity, checked into my return, and said she could find no reason to why my refund should be released. There were no notations requesting additional information and no letter sent to me. Here I am a month later and when I check “Where’s My Refund” it says my return is still being processed. I am at my wits end!

                          • #4112635

                              I filed on 1/20. Had the WMR status bar until last friday. Now, it says: Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available. It also lists tax topic 152. Also noticed my refund amount disappeared. Anyone else having this issue or have any news about it? Thanks

                            • #4112634

                                We filed in Feb/2015 Where’s my Refund says “still processing” I have tried to find a number to reach a human being, instead all I get are recordings! So frustrated and PO’d at all of this! Anyone have any other suggestions to find out where my refund is??

                              • #4112589

                                  Boy am I relieved to hear all of these comments and find I am not the only one!!!! I filed a paper tax return on the last day April 14, 2015. I was worried that it says process pending and it is half way through July!!!

                                    After being stuck in ” Your refund is Processing Hell” we finally got the $$$ today.
                                    Just some History:
                                    Filled: 02/2015
                                    Nothing happened until last week, we called about 2 times during the process and we were never given a reason for the delay. Just wanted ALL to know there is hope!! Good Luck!!!

                                      It’s been 13 weeks now and still no federal refund, nor any letters. I finally called after 7 weeks and was told by the person that they saw no problem with my refund and then they said it had been under review and that it had ended that week. They said wait another 4 or 5 weeks and you should have it, that was 6 weeks ago, hence 13 weeks since filing. The IRS person told me that if my refund isn’t paid by April 30th, the IRS owes me interest starting from April 15th until deposited.
                                      Of course the interest rate varies and is only around 3%, the IRS charges late filers high penalties and 9% interest until paid, something is B.S. there. Oh, and the interest they pay is taxable income so it gets added to any wages I receive. Apparently 100,000 people had their information stolen from an online tax preparer and over 20,000 false returns were filed before the real person could file, hence they held everyone’s refund up for review that filed online.

                                        I am semi-glad to see I am not alone. We filed in February and received 2 separate letters that we were still being “reviewed”. I called at the end and requested a review, which gives the IRS team 6 more weeks. Friday, a holiday for them, was the end of that time and I still show “under review” with no letter or correspondence by the deadline. I had the taxes professionally done by our accountant. Very disheartening. I will be trying to call again tomorrow. The TAC team said they cannot expedite unless we can show a foreclosure or shut-off notice…. I am not prepared to ruin my credit to obtain my taxes back. Not yet anyhow. I just wish some one at the IRS would give me a straight and clear answer before we do ruin our credit…making our business bills is getting a bit hard and they owe us a nice sum.

                                        Good luck to all and I do hope a moderator is seeing these and not wasting this opportunity to obtain customer dissatisfaction details. I am glad Terribusa received some good news…hopefully they are batching and we can hear something soon.

                                            4/2/15 – Return accepted by IRS
                                            4/28/15 – Review letter 4464C received (wait 60 days)
                                            7/2/15 – (65 days later) “Where’s my refund” website says it’s “still being processed.” The phone number on the 4464C form gets me an automated system that says the same thing as the WMR website.
                                            It is my opinion that the IRS is either corrupt or incompetent. I have decided that, as of my first paycheck in July, I am going to claim the maximum number of dependences allowed by law for me. I will never again allow these corrupt/clueless people to hold any additional monies other than what I owe. I would rather owe the IRS on April 15 than suffer the BS that they are putting us all through now.

                                              I have not received my state refund for Indiana. I filed in March. In April I was told to fax my w2s into the Indiana Dept of Revenue. It was received by them 4/9. Tomorrow is the 12th week since that date which is the last “deadline” they gave me. I will call tomorrow but beginning to believe I will never see this refund.

                                            • #4112534

                                                This is just absolutely ridiculous. My taxes were filled and accepted in January. The status has been “still prossesing” for SEVEN MONTHS now. Mind you all I submitted was my w-2, and a 1040 form that I received from my Univerisity for the taxes I pay on my tuition. My refund is 3K! I don’t understand what the hold up is.

                                              • #4112528

                                                  What is the processing time limit and what amount of interest are they required to pay you after that date? They owe me well into the 6-figures, and they are sitting on it looking for any reason in the world to delay it longer and longer. I know that the return is good as it has been triple-checked. They just don’t understand it. I guess is part of the review, but they asked for ID verification. It’s a joint return and the system would only take the primary (not secondary) taxpayer. That’s me. The system says it cannot verify my identity – either because they only want the primary taxpayer or they have information wrong about me – the secondary. They must have it wrong as I know who I am. They have been willing and eager to take money year after year without identifying me over and over again. Now that they owe me money they are trying to hold onto it for as long as they can. My accountant told me that the IRS has changed in recent years and now it’s become this totalitarian monster where you have no rights. It supposedly has nothing to do with budget cuts, but a change in attitude. I asked my accountant if we could request an audit – so they could just address their “concerns”, but he told me that the IRS won’t allow anyone to request an audit. I have nothing to hide and it would be worth the expense for them to sit there tongue-tied.

                                                    Hello everyone stuck on return processing, no letters, no notice no change on transcript since 2/25/2015 It is June 30 2015 and no refund called daily up until a couple weeks ago after I was transferred to an non-working extension. Worked there over 10 years and never ever have I heard of such nonsense. There was never an issue like I am seeing these days this is just awful, I have requested an advocate to help What A Joke! they lost the referral… TWICE. My refund was processed then it went to error processing it was off a digit on their behalf was told it would be CORRECTED and that I would receive a notice of correction and DDD, that was in April. It is over 14 weeks over 60 days and well over the processing time limit.
                                                    For anyone to get their refund after the processing time limit we should be given interest. Sadly my former employer lately is so eager to take money but not refund those that obey the tax laws.

                                                      IRS tracking site has said “Accepted” since Feb 22. Spoke with someone at the IRS building near me in April and verified all info is correct in their system. Was told I will get my direct deposit no later than the 2nd week of June. Still waiting, and my state tax was supposed to get automatically deducted from my fed return so now I have a late fee because somebody else is late. Only $6, but it’s infuriating that they can’t get it together.

                                                    • #4112513

                                                        Yes, I’m stuck on that very place. I had my accountant call the IRS (my returns are too complex for me to understand) and found out that I “will be” reviewed. I like the way that I say I was flagged for review, but they aren’t even getting around to reviewing it or telling me until July 7th. Supposedly I have to wait 45 days until I can contact them again to find out what their problem is.
                                                        Their real problem is that I made a decent amount of money for many years except for 2014 whereby my income dropped very low. Of course, I am still making estimated payments now at the normal levels, but they somehow got it in their mind that this was “unusual”. It’s pretty lame to think I would file faithfully the same levels of income for many years, and one year just have a bad year. So instead of processing it – they think I am trying to cheat them. What am I going to do, run away to some pacific island? They are getting normal estimated payments in 2015. Anyone with a brain would understand that 2014 was a bad year. Instead they hold it up for review.
                                                        That wouldn’t be too bad, except that I know the reason for the drop in income, and a normal tax review will not understand it – I barely do. So it will then get kicked up to a higher review – and on and on until they find someone with brains to understand the return.
                                                        I really wish they would just audit me, so I could tell them specifically what to look for. Instead they are going to sift through 1000 pages of my 1040 looking for something that is so technical that most accountants can’t understand it.
                                                        I never realized until now that the IRS is full of stooges. And I am getting grief from them for something I know they will find no fault in.
                                                        To answer your question – yes … they take their sweet time telling you that you will be reviewed. And then you wait for the review to start, and then wait for them to read it. Good luck!

                                                          The IRS is pushing 12 weeks with my refund. I think the democrat tax people are too busy searching for tea party returns to audit.

                                                            Yes, it’s only been since May 20 – but I have never had a problem with the IRS sitting on a return this long.
                                                            How do you know if you’re under review? Where’s my Refund just says that return is being processed and I will be notified when there will be a refund date.
                                                            I have not heard that a refund was approved, I haven’t heard anything.
                                                            I just received a CP45 notice telling me that my request for carryover of part of my refund into 2015 is not allowed because of “current activity on my 2014 return”. I have no idea of what they mean by “current activity.”
                                                            My best guess is that “current activity” means they are still working on it, and the CP45 notice was sent because they can’t credit a carryover for a return that has not been approved yet. Anyone have any idea as to what they are doing? Thanks.

                                                              Mali, I had to laugh at your “posted on a board for them to laugh at” I feel the same way! I filed 2/6 and have received ZERO info since March when they said I’m under review, don’t call, don’t do anything unless we ask you to. Then I’ve heard nothing since. I didn’t have the obamacare form issue, no identity theft, or anything like that! Then they took off online transcripts because of the dTa breach they had a couple weeks ago. Wmr just still says processing. I Give up!

                                                                Update: it’s been 12 weeks! I called again. She said my return was posted on 4/20/15 (Im assuming it was posted on a board where everybody can see point at it and laugh) and it should not have been more than 45 days, so she had to send it to the processing area (where more people can laugh at it) and I should allowed another 45 days to get an answer.
                                                                Will I get interest on my money I asked… The entire IRS office is laughing at that now!

I called in April (about two and a half months after I was accepted) and was told I had to verify my identity, even though I had never received that news from the IRS in the mail. If I hadn’t had been frustrated and called after two and a half months, who knows how long I would have had to wait to find this information out. The man made me verify my information and told me to wait six more weeks. Well guess what…It is four months later from the time I filed and still no change. No Refund, No notifications in the mail, and Still Processing.

                                                                • #4112351

Till now status is showing Your tax return is still being processed. No update happened. I received a letter in March, saying that My tax refund is under review will take action after April 30. but till now no communication happened. when ever I tried to reach IRS, its saying the same message Your tax return is still being processed.A refund date will be provided when available. Not Sure why its taking delay. Some one please Help me

Still Processing, no letters no notice I even requested an advocate in April have heard NOTHING! I was also able to retrieve my transcripts they never updated until 1 week ago with only a minor date change to additonal tax assest. Now I can not get my transcripts online due to theft! with all this nonsense, I called several times, once to leave a long message for the advocates office ( no reply either) second time I called toll free and was given such BS then the guy hung up on me- claims he touched the wrong button and needed to transfer me to someone who knew the system better! , I called back sadly waited 45 min.only to be told the advocates office had my return and it is up to them to release the funds. I worked for them for over 19 years have not had any issues ever, it has been 6 years since I worked there and now I have delays. No one can help and no one knows anything.

                                                                          • #4112245

Let me remind you i filed January 20. Someone please tell me something Heeeeellp

                                                                            • #4111999

I tried to file on H&R Block and someone fraudulently filed a tax return with my social security. In mid-Feb, my paper return was received and I confirmed my identity with the IRS. My status on the app was received to “your refund is still be processed” for the all of March, April, and until 5/23. On 5/23, I was received a DD and officially received my refund on 5/28. Patience is the key especially if you were a victim of identity theft. Good luck, Everyone!

                                                                                    What is going on at the IRS???

I end up in voice mail jail if I try to call the IRS. I find it extremely interesting that my husband and I never get a refund and this year we will. I’ve already received my state refund. I live in Hawaii and they are really backlogged with their refunds. I am wondering what’s the holdup?

                                                                                    • #4111909

Called on 3/27 and had to verify my identity. They told me 6 weeks, on 4/27 they told me its not 6 weeks its 9. I called today again, (7 weeks on Friday) and they said if everything goes fine the refund would go on the June 1st release which has a direct deposit date of JUNE 15TH!!!!!!! they are required to send a letter if there is a problem after the 9 weeks.

                                                                                        ***So next refund date is JUNE 15th*******

                                                                                        They also said my employer had not send w2 yet, they have until june 15th, which is a lie, because all our w2s were already sent!

                                                                                      • #4111865

After multiple calls just received a letter on May 9th reference the 1095-a dated May 5th given me 20 days to respond. Faxed it in and when I called they claim that it has not been entered into the system or the computer system is down. Out of all the years of filing I have never had this happen. I would have never filed if i had not received a letter strongly stating to do so. IRS has been a pain in my buttocks this year, can not log on to view my transcripts so I can not view the codes that are being entered. Do they even care that this is going on?

                                                                                        • #4111829

I am well past 6 weeks now I have been waiting over 2 months. I am not sure what else to do. My wheres my refund still says ” still processing”.. Can anyone give me advise of what I can do here.

Then got another letter advising me to do nothing. I have not heard another word. It has been 12 weeks! I can’t reach a live person at the IRS office either! Our taxes pay their paychecks and they do not offer a live person to speak with?

                                                                                              • #4111712

They told me they would put the return through and it can take up to 6 weeks to get my money. Checked status this morning and it still says Your refund is still being processed. And my transcripts still show as N/A for 2014.

                                                                                                  Did this happen with anyone else? How long after talking with someone did the status change when you checked, if ever?

TT 152 showed this week, but no update at all. This is insane! As fast as they take your money they cant give it back. I saw the cycle chart, but have no clue if thats actually reliable. I heard if they take longer than 45 days they have to give more money.

                                                                                                  • #4111541

So, I re-sent AND faxed it on 4/21. Today, the lady told me that they received my fax on Tuesday and now I get to wait another 30 days. We ALL get the “WAIT-WAIT-WAIT” run-around. I believe that they are SO swamped with folks complaints, and trying to locate where-the- heck their returns are, that that has just become a ‘regular’ response. I’m told that it is often advantageous to personally drive to your local IRS office and speak to a person face-to-face. It’s all such B.S that I have resorted to waiting and maybe by just making occasional calls to look into things, I will finally get a change of response! The only number I have gotten through to is 1-800-829-0582 EXT 652. Usually I won’t wait more than 10-15 mins as they will alert you as to a wait time. But give them a try if you haven’t already!

                                                                                                          But it only has as of date: 05/11/2015… Everything else has 0.00 next to it.

                                                                                                          Does anyone know what the as of date mean here?

                                                                                                          Any insight will be appreciated

                                                                                                              I’m having the same problem. I efiled with TurboTax on 3/22 and it was accepted. I have received my state return already but not my federal. It just says “Your Tax Return is still being processed.” and is showing the amount. There are no bars or codes or anything. I haven’t been able to get a hold of a living person calling the IRS yet either.

                                                                                                              I’m not sure really what to do at this point.

                                                                                                            • #4111503

Couldn’t see my transcripts prior to ID verify. They were n/a. Recieved 570 on transcripts after ID verifying which is normal I know that. Now have been stuck on return is still be processed date will be provided when available. No bars. Topic 152. What to do my weeks are up and nothing. I don’t qualify for a advocate. My as of date is Aoril 6, 2015. It changes randomly all the time to April 27, 2015 and then goes back to April 6, 2015. Sometimes it will stay at April 27,, through out the day and then randomly switches back to April the 6, 2015. Makes no sense whatsoever.

                                                                                                              • #4111496

                                                                                                                    What forms did you have on your tax return, just curious as to how and why your refund had increased? Usually IRS doesn’t correct increases needing to be done but are automatically looking for errors to find more money ppl owe them. Did they say why you got an increase, by how much did you increase? Did your tax topic change at all while you waited for your refund which might had indicated you were getting an bigger refund?

                                                                                                                    If IRS resequenced my return on 4/13 when will it go into processing, and when should I expect an refund? I used HRB online software and @ 1st they said $600 would be deducted from my credits aka remains would be my refund then before e-filing, automatically with me making no changes to my return HRB showed msg that I was being chrgd $1200 and subtracted it from my credits which brought my refund down by the $1200 instead of $600. It doesn’t show anywhere as to how or why what I owed to IRS increased by double along with; I went over my tax returns like millions of times and all that shows is amount owed $1200, Credits amt, then says they took credits amt – $1200 = my refud amt.

                                                                                                                  • #4111431

A DD date will be supplied…” No live people to talk to on the IRS provided phone numbers so thank you for posting the number above. I’ll call on Monday. This is the first year I’ve had this problem. Hummm…..government out of money for the common people? They’ve given it all to the billionaires, banks and Wall Street.

You can’t get anyone on the phone so for this year, I’ll claim the max and end up paying the IRS on 4/15 next year to help manage this.

                                                                                                                                              I was on “your refund is still being processed” for over a month (e-filed & accepted around Feb 20th). Then yesterday it changed to “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.” I’ve tried calling several times and can never get a real person. I also requested my transcript last week but have not received it (said it should take 5-7 business days), hopefully soon.

                                                                                                                                              Also, state deposited about a week after acceptance.

I talked to irs today and they said it’s still being reviewed bug with the time being up they sent a referral on my behalf to see what the problem is. I should hear from them sometime in the next 45 days ugh so frustrated.

I’m still waiting. Finally received a letter on April 3rd.Saying I needed to submit form 1095A and form 8962.That’s for the Obama Health care. Smh.Not having Insurance may be the reason for the holdup.I sent it in and til this day I’m still waiting.

After my 21 days, I called and verified ID. Exactly 5 weeks later, I noticed the that the wording on WMR changed slightly (from like “still being processed” to “are in process”). The next day the bars were back and a DD date. DD was received this morning. 52 days total from start to finish.

I’d be really upset if then I am told to wait 6-8 additional weeks. I’m not sure whats going on this year, but I know now not to get my hopes up during Tax Season!

How much longer do I really have to wait am I going to get my refund at all??? It’s 4/8 and I’m still stuck on being prossessed with no bars…

Accepted next day. beginning of March still no refund. Call irs, they say return wasn’t accepted until February 17th, should be receiving refund end of march/beginning of April. It’s now April 7th, still no refund. Hubby calls irs, they tell him return wasnt corrected until March 17th (?), and we won’t get our refund until may. They never asked for verification of our identities, we never got any letters requesting information. This is ridiculous. We should be able to charge them interest for holding our money back and playing games, God forbid we don’t pay taxes, we get penalized.

Had bars for like a week then they disappeared. I called on 4/2 and waited on hold for like an hour(called in the morning) before talking to someone. There was an error on my return that they resolved on 3/25. The said it would take 6 weeks from that date but I got my bars back and DDD today for 4/8

I’ve talked to the IRS several times, yet now when I contact them they refer to previous calls with “looks as though we spoke to you on 3/9 and advised it would take 6-8 weeks.” I was accepted on 2/13 — IRS states that I have to wait 6-8 wks from 2/19. Apparently, there is some kind of ID Theft from 2013 thats preventing the release of my refund.

                                                                                                                                                                                        Again, how long did you wait from filed, or the date the IRS accepted?

                                                                                                                                                                                                        • #4110801

WMR says it’s still being processed. I called the number given here on March 19th. They said they’ve received it. There aren’t any holds and she couldn’t figure out what was wrong. She kept putting me on hold trying to figure out why we hadn’t received it. Finally said to call back in 1-2 weeks to see if it clears itself up. Called again today. Got hung up on before talking to anyone after being on hold for 25 minutes so I had to call back. After another 30 minute wait, someone picked up. Again, she kept putting me back on hold while she researched our return. Thirty minutes later she FINALLY said there was an error processing it so it’s now being treated like a paper return. Those can take 6-8 weeks. It’s “only” been over 5 weeks, so I can try back once 8 weeks is up April 17th. Lovely.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          • #4110579

Had bars for a few days on WMR, then they disappeared. Waited our 21 days, no movement, called IRS on 23rd day. Rep claimed they didn’t have our return. Blamed HRB. Contacted HRB, they confirmed that the IRS did in fact have it. Called IRS again. Rep claims they don’t have it. Rep puts us on hold. Comes back and claims they found it. It’s being processed. No error codes. Wait a few days. Call back. Can’t find it, hold, found it, error code but they can’t tell me what it is. Get TA. TA says she needs our 1095A and form 8962. (these form are in our return from HRB, but I faxed them anyway). Contact TA about a week later, she can’t tell me anything. This continues until this past Thursday, March 19. On the 19th she says that she can’t tell us anything right now, and asks if we’re expecting a refund. WTF? Of course we’re expecting a freaking return. She says she’ll call my wife back after she eats lunch. We never receive another call, so when I get home that afternoon I call. I’m pretty irate. She doesn’t answer. I leave a message. She calls me the next morning. Says she needs the first two pages of our return, to prove that we are due a return. She’s been on the case for something like 3 weeks at this point and she is just now telling me she needs proof that we’re supposed to get a refund. Ridiculous. So I called the IRS again, and spoke to a rep in the refund department. I was told that my return was under further review. I was put on hold. The fellow came back on the line and told me that I was supposed to be getting a letter, and that it should arrive within the next two weeks. He couldn’t tell me what letter I was getting, or put me in touch with someone who could give me answers.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              I’m at my wits end with this. We’re moving cross country. We’re starting the move a week from tomorrow. That’s March 30. We filed on January 30, thinking there was no way we could possibly still be waiting for it two months later. I can’t get answers from the IRS, or the TA. Absolutely ridiculous.

Accepted right away. No bars, ever. 20150404 date. Not sure what that means. Got a TA. She had me send my pay stubs in. She said she sent everything to them. Still no bars. W2’s and paystubs match. Talked to TA again – boy was she mad I called her again, not on my “scheduled” date – and she said the delay is “Social Security has not sent my payroll & withholding information to the IRS yet.” At first she said they didn’t match, and then she said they did. What?! Never had a problem with refund before. Filed on the first day because I need it – gotta move from my current place! Tax Transcript shows only two of my employers, so far. TA says she is scheduled to call me on 3/25/15. How can I be kept in limbo with nothing happening on my return/refund and nothing I can do about it for all this time? My TA doesn’t even want to talk to me? I certainly did nothing wrong and my income is my income and obviously correct. The withholding verification? Not really my fault, and I’m sure it’s correct, too. Help? Anything I can do at all? This worries me night and day.

My codes on the transcript are 150 and 806 with a cycle date of 20150805 — should have my refund by now. But for some reason the “tax return filed” date on the transcripts kept changing. The first time I checked the transcript on the 10th it said it was filed on March 12th, which was odd because it wasn’t even the 12th yet. Then on Monday, it changed to saying it was filed on the 16th. Again, that’s wrong — it was accepted electronically on 2-22. Those dates don’t make sense, and the dates changing makes even LESS sense.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I half wonder if my return is sitting on someone’s desk and they keep changing the date to cover their butts because they’re in a backlog.

No change on status all this time. I became worried when i read there was a concern about the identity fraud coming in from Turbotax, and IRS was holding returns for identity verification from TT. I called the number above/below ext 352. Only waited 15 minutes to speak to someone. Unfortunately I think her research was looking at WMR. All she said was it is still processing and there was no information for her to look at because it is still processing. “If it doesn’t change by the 30th of march, call us back.” That’s it. I agree with another post, the IRS should pay the same interest they are charging when they get paid late. Good luck!

I posted in this thread a few days ago that after a month of having no bars on WMR, I finally got a change of wording this week. I checked WMR this morning and my bars are back and I finally have a DDD!!!!!! It has been 5 weeks of patiently waiting. I’m so happy!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              • #4110189

The best number to call to reach someone at the IRS is 1-800-829-0582 ext 352. The may make you wait 21 days after you filed electronic or 4 weeks after filing paper. In my case, the system just stalled out for no reason. Noone could tell me why and no notice was sent. Finally, one rep said they would send a email to that department, but they didn’t even know what to do. I then called a tax adovocate. It took 1 day for this mess to be cleared up and next week I will get my refund. I checked today and I can see that my tax transcripts are ready…which only confirms that all is over and my money is on its way.

My bars haven’t returned, but i did get the change of wording on WMR Wednesday, but the best news is my transcripts are now available with an 846 code (refund issued) and cycle code of 20151005. I;m assuming its gonna be a DDD of 3/18/2015 can anyone confirm?

Pretty much all we can do is wait.

Return fixed and accepted on 2/20, a few days later bars went missing on wmr. I thought maybe since I got a replacement IP PIN I needed to ID verify, called yesterday and was told I do not need to ID verify, was transferred to another department and was told my return is being reviewed, no reason given as to why, just that I should wait 6-8 weeks from the 20th. The only transcripts I can see are account transcript and wage & income transcript and they both say “no tax return filed.” Even more confusing is the “account transcript” has Account Balance: 0.00, Acct Interest 0.00 as of Mar. 16, 2015 and Penalty 0.00 as of Mar. 16, 2015…today is the how do they have anything “as of” the 16th? I’ve seen a lot of talk here about getting a TA…anyone else in this situation…any suggestions, advise or knowledge would be greatly appreciated!!

Went from “your return is being processed, we will tell you when it is deposites” or whatever to “we have received your tax return and it is being processed.” Yay! Hopefully this means my bars will be back soon!

I’ve been waiting for 16 days and a very nice lady looked everything up for me. She also stated that there are holds on refunds this year because of last year scams during tax season. They want people to verify who they are (MY CASE). 18008290582 x 325 I was on hold for 56 minutes. when you call just say we’ve been waiting for 4 weeks DO NOT give a date.

I filed and was accepted on feb 13th. A week later I had no bars, no tax topic, but the amount didn’t change on WMR. I couldn’t log in to see my transcripts anymore, before than i could but they were N/A except for account and wages and income. I waited out the 21 days while doing research on the possible problem , because I never received a letter from the IRS. I did the ID verify online on my 21st day before i called the IRS. When i called the IRS sounding lady (seriously lol) told me I was pulled from the system because of ID flag, and the letter was mailed out 3 days ago! I told her i did ID verify earlier that day and if I would have to complete it again., She said no, but the eta is 6 weeks max to received my refund. I’m screwed! I counted my eggs before they hatched and now I’m about to homeless. Lesson learned…no rely on refund ever!! I still haven’t seen any updates on WMR or any new transcripts available and this was 3 days ago.

Now I’m really nervous.

I haven’t received any codes or letters and I called to see If I needed to ID verify and was told I didn’t. I had an as of date of February 16th on my transcripts until last week and it changed to March 16 but they all still say No return filed. I’m not sure if the as of date changing is a good sign or not.

That disappeared and now says the same thing as everyone else. Called IRS, spoke with a very unhelpful person who said the same thing as the website. One thing I noticed we all have in common is we used TT who had their client information breached on 2/5 and stopped sending returns until it was resolved. I believe they are holding returns to verify they are in fact the true person. Once they verify, and believe me there are thousands of people who used TT, our refunds will be released. That’s my take on it. The IRS just recently had to let hundreds of employees go as well due to budget cuts so it’s going to take longer because of that too.

I feel ya all. Filed 2/02. Accepted 02/03. Stuck in processing since then. Tried calling the IRS for over a week. Finally get through today. The answer …. There was an issue on 02/18. It’s being resolved. I asked what’s the issue. The answer … I can’t tell you. I only see it’s BEING resolved. I asked is there anything you need from me? … NO … WTF does that mean. You don’t need my help to resolve the issue, you can’t tell me what the issue is. I think you just felt like holding my freakn money for the fun of it. GRrrrrrrr, so frustrating. My son just totaled my car 2 days ago. Could really use it. I thought maybe I can help with answers but apparently not. Then I’m being told, it can now take 6 to 8 weeks to resolve the issue. But boy, if you’re just one day late in filing when you owe. Wish I could charge them interest.

It’s been almost 2 weeks now since my bars disappeared, but it seems like a lot of you have been waiting longer than that. What irritates me is that there doesn’t seem to be a sense of urgency from the IRS. Like I’ve said, they are really quick to take money from us, but they sure like to take their time giving us OUR money.

Told I didn’t need to do anything but contacted advocate anyways around 2/8. She sent I’d verfication in on 2/17.

They are rude and never give real answers. They say whatever they feel like saying. Even when your 21 days are up. They say still processing and it can take 6-8 weeks. Never giving reason.

Kept checking WMR and just kept getting your return has been received and still being processed. Finally today I got a letter saying that my return was on hold due to Identity issues. All I had to do was go online answer a few questions and submit. Now it says that it can take up to 6 weeks to process. -_-

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        • #4109430

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            @jj You are so right. I called again today 2times. Either they purposely hire the most ignorant people they can find or just give us peasants a bs # to filter us. I said ” Ma’am, I just want to be sure that when April comes (3 months after i filed) I won’t have any problems and don’t have to wait another 6-8wks to fix something else”.. to which she replies “Well if that happens, then it happens, but there’s nothing else to do, I feel like I’ve answered all your questions so I will be disconnecting the call now.” and hung up.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I called back hoping for better luck with another agent, she put me on hold for 20mins while she “researched my account thoroughly” just to tell me it’s still processing. (I’m glad to be able to give someone a break). How can this be the way they treat everyone? how is this acceptable?

Still no updates on wmr. I just called and was told that my refund was in a different department being reviewed because of suspected identity theft on my account LAST year. They told me that nothing is required of me at this time and I will receive my refund in 6-8 weeks from 2/17 (the day it was sent to this “other” department).

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            • #4109412

You all do realize that when these unremitted tax returns sit in government accounts, they earn interest, right? I think they purposely delay returns in order to make interest money by holding the money. What else should we expect from an agency that destroys and deletes their own emails and lies to Congress? Think they care about our money we earned and overpaid, sitting around in government coffers earning them interest money…probably so they can make some fraudulent purchases?

She said the flag was still “pending” for ID theft. She also said that I needed to “allow for mailing time” despite this being a direct deposit. When I asked why I needed to allow for mailing time, she said “How should I know what method you used?” I was shocked. She ended up hanging up on me when I asked for a tax advocate.

I can’t wait until tomorrow so I can call back and see whats the hold up on my refund…tomorrow will be 21 days!

I called that number and turns out there is an issue revolving identity, they are asking for additional verification and now I have to wait another 6-8weeks to get my refund. Thank You, may the odds be ever in my favor right?

Try and see if it works for you.

Impossible to speak to any live rep calling their contact number, I’m going over to the local tax office today to look further into it. I was given this number to contact (800) 304 – 3107 US Treasury, because you could use the automated system to see if someone else might of filed fraudulantly , but to no avail. Why am I being put in this position? I worked all year with 2 dependents, I think I should at least get a live person to tell me what the hold up is. My patience has no end, but my 1 yr old daughter does get hungry…

Turbo Tax told me I spills expect my refund sooner or by 2/25. I’ve looked on the IRSapp and it says it’s still processing. I’m not understanding why it would take this long.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I call and can’t get ahold of anyone except an automated system and I don’t know what else to do. How do I get ahold of someone and what are the “numbers” and “bars” everyone is talking about on this thread?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              • #4108810

I don’t have the time to call and wait on hold for 40 mins. I also have an as of date of 2/16/15. I guess waiting is all I can do.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        I had Obamacare all year and did not owe on that but I did owe a state tax offset which is less than my refund so that will be coming out.

Today is day 24 since I filed, I had the message “being processed, refund date will be available” for over 2 weeks. I was losing hope … Read last night that IRS should be doing a huge update over night so I checked back this morning and the tracker is back showing approved and direct deposits date is 2/25…. (4 weeks after being accepted) I am so relieved… Don’t loose hope guys, check your status today! Try not to check more than once a day or you will get the generic message

We want answers!!! Today is day 21 since I filled and was accepted. After waiting on hold for what seemed like forever, IRS rep said no info, must keep checking web site… She said I can’t even get my transcripts until refund processed…. She said a refund date will show on website when available… No shit, that is why I am calling!!! I have had this generic message for over a week. She started site would adv is error or more info is needed or a letter would be sent. I never waited this long in the past. I want MY money NOW!!

I filed with a injured spouse form because I knew my husband would cause and offset from child support. For the past few weeks it has been on the first bar of Return received. Now it has no bars and states that it’s under review and I will see a date once it has been processed. Does anyone know If calling the IRS will help to see where they are in the process? I haven’t received any letter for the offset so I am just wondering if anyone has any other information?

So basically you are starting over like they just got it? That’s nuts if so. What about transcripts? Were they all n/a with no 2014 or did you have 2014 for the bottom 2 account and wage and n/a for the top 2? By any chance?

Everything else is 000 no return filed. Which they say means it’s in the process of being processed.

I changed her last name this yr and forgot that I have not yet updated her ss card I immediately corrected it on turbo tax (where I filed) and within hours it was accepted by IRS. WMR was showing the tracker w one bar highlighted until I got this generic message when I checked later the tracker was back-still one bar. But the generic message again came back and its been over a week since anything has updated. The 1800 numb gives the same info. No codes just that it is being processed. On weds (in 2 days) I will be at 21 days and can call. Very nervous after reading some people didn’t get returns for months… I need this money asap for specific bills! Any new updates?

My sister has no bars and when she called yesterday they said you’re all good! It’s coming tomorrow! Of course they said her bank may hang on a couple days, but that’s neither here nor there. All I’m saying is wmr is not the authority to go on. Thankfully.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I would trust transcripts over wmr. If you can see 2014 but they’re all 000’s they’re processing them, if you do have figures there you can tell what’s going on with it by the codes listed. Even though IRS says you can’t and it’s a social media myth, that’s bs. Their handbook says what the codes mean and confirm the 846 refund issue code and the breakdown of cycle dates.

But we know they aren’t being completely forthcoming here as people have seen bars disappear after being approved, and have gotten transcripts with cycle codes they could predict their DD from when there were no bars. So even the best information is somewhat, meh.

I have abandoned all mine. It’s too late, the damage is done, I’m in repair mode now and will never count on a return again. For me, hope is the enemy of peace. But that’s just me

This can happen even if you previously checked Where’s My Refund and it showed the status as “Return Received” along with the tracker. In these cases be assured that we have your tax return and we are processing it. Please follow the directions provided by Where’s My Refund?. Otherwise if we need more information we will contact you – usually by mail. If we send you a letter about your return, please follow the instructions in the letter as soon as possible.

This is among the common myths and misconceptions that are often repeated in social media. The codes listed on tax transcripts do not provide any early insight into when a refund will be issued. The best way to check on your refund is by visiting “Where’s My Refund?” While transcripts include a lot of detailed information regarding actions taken on your account, the codes do not mean the same thing for everyone and they do not necessarily reflect how any of these actions do or do not impact the amount or timing of your refund. IRS transcripts are best and most often used to validate past income and tax filing status for mortgage, student and small business loan applications and to help with tax preparation.

Thanks for the info. It might not always mean that though. After you posted I searched for that and found there may be other unknown reasons? googling “when your bars go missing on wmr does this always mean your’re under review?” should pop up one instance where it might be for another reason.

Something as simple as My bars disappeared I (choose) was/was not under review – dozens of other things too

Something in your return was flagged by the IRS computers or you had a previous tax issue (offset, etc.) in prior years that automatically causes this years return to be reviewed. From what I was told, the 21 day waiting period starts over from the time the review was initialed

Filed on the 25th. Bars disappeared, all of that. When the bars disappear is means your return in under review. Somebody is actually looking at due to something the computers picked up and flagged. The other shitty part about this is that you can only call and check your status of your refund 21 days AFTER THE REVIEW WAS INITIATED. Which means the 21 day waiting period starts over when the review started. So not from the 25th. It blows big time. My review started on Feb. 8th so… Yeah

I field my taxes through taxact on the 25 got accepted by the IRS on the 27th, had the progress bar for a couple of days and since then been nothing but “your tax return is still being processed a refund date will be given when available” its driving me nuts! does anyone know why? or what’s going on?

And wait because the way my anxiety is set up I have no choice

Was accepted on 1/20. Been checking Where’s My Refund, and it is still processing. I know three people who filed well after I did and have received their refunds. I also know 4 people who filed same day as me and received refunds.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Based on the IRS 21 days, I still have 4 days to go (February 10) without worrying too much.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              However, I settled a few credit cards last year (2014). For only one of them, the “forgiven” amount was more than $600, which means they had to report it and send it to the IRS as income. This is not the case for the less than $600 debts.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Well, I was anxious to file my taxes. I had the exact “forgiven” amount for the over$600+ debt, and found the credit card company’s tax ID on a government website. I used this information when I filed.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I still haven’t received the 1099C for the over$600, but am now getting them for the lessthan$600! I did not include these on my taxes.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Does anybody know anything about this? Can the fact that I didn’t include the info for the 1099Cs that don’t include any “income” be holding my refund up?

What I have not seen is many responses saying “what happened next.” I filed and was accepted on 1/26. Had the first bar for a few days then blank and “refund is still being processed.” I’m a worrier, so my anxiety went into high gear. Today, it is still blank; HOWEVER, my transcripts have been updated and show my refund date. I have spent so many hours worrying….ultimately….for no reason. So hang in there. It may take a few extra days, but chances are…it will be just fine. :)

We all have no choice but to be patient. I spoke with someone from Republic Bank because I saw that I have an account setup. I thought I paid my fees up front but I didn’t. She told me the name of my Bank, so i’m wondering if a test deposit has been made or what. We have all been thinking an update would have happened starting last week but it hasn’t. i’m just praying all goes well for everyone because we all need our money!!!

I got my DD on Feb 6th. I always get my W2 electronically. January. 15 so, I file that day or the next to get it done and over with! I was never pushed to the back of any line last year and I was accepted early. As of this year, I’m not checking my DDD until people say they have one or the last day of January. Last year I didn’t even look for a DDD until someone told me theirs was on there. Ever since that one year where it gave you a DDD then it suddenly changed to like 2 weeks later, thats when the whole cycle chart stopped and you had to be accepted And approved to get a DDD, they started the whole 21 days thing. I’m more worried about my state return. And it’s a 1/16 of my federal. Don’t worry, it will come, your not being audited check at the end of the month. I have 2 kids and would like to get a newer car, but I have What I need and my kids do too, so anything else is a bonus! Good luck!

You only really come here when you’re desperate for the money, like me. So jimMorrison needs to STFU. In my humble opinion. ;)

Why the hell would you expect a DDD or a deposit in your account already? If you dont like waiting at the beginning of the year for your tax return if youre lucky enough to be recieving one, then adjust your withholdings. dam its only a few weeks to wait .

They have all year to prepare for this annual event and seemingly every year recently they are making more excuses for delays and inefficiency and the everyday tax-paying public are the ones mostly affected.

I remember when I was waiting last year it would update several times throughout the week.

Once we see the first DDD’s you will see them all throughout the week.

I filed on 1/30 I believe. There was a glitch at the office I went to and my return was not filed until 2/6. I was accepted by the IRS 2/7 and got my refund on 2/14. WMR lost my bars after being accepted. It never updated to show a DDD. Last year, 2014, I filed via TT on 1/31, was accepted the next day, got my refund on 2/6. WMR never updated until after I got my deposit. Both years I had moved to a different address, dependents stayed the same, I file HOH 2 dependents with EIC and Child Tax credit. This year is the same so far, I filed 1/20, accepted same day about 5 minutes after. Showed on WMR right away. I honestly think that we will see money next week. As for the people who filed early last year and didn’t get a refund until far after I did, the IRS kicked all those early filers back to the end of the line. It wasn’t fair, but it happened. I am not saying the same will happen this year, but I would not be surprised. We also have to remember that with Obamacare, now they are checking to see if you had insurance and if they can penalize you. Should have already been done while you were filing but, who knows that our lovely governments real intentions are. I need this money just as bad as the next person. I need a car, am making a down payment on my house, and have to get my kids some clothes. But all we can do is sit back and wait. But in my strong opinion we should see something next week. And as for all the bars missing, chill out, it really is a glitch. There is no way that thousands of people are all being flagged like that.

Just if your like me and have never had this happen it can be scary when your used to at least seeing 1 bar or something.

The last couple of years is when people notice the sting of having to wait longer:( this wasn’t always the case before. If you file early you got your return early. Not so anymore early filers get out back into que a lot of the time. I know I made this mistake and doing that last year and thought I was accepted early and getting my refund first but… No, I had to wait until feb 21 to get my refund. Sucks but that why I said I would never file early again. People that filed after me had their money way before me. It was so bad most people were done spending their return money before early filers got theirs last year.
