      Going to be another wild year! I Hope things run smoothly. Don’t like what I heard today from irs chief but I think he’s just raising s ruckus with government over their budget cuts. So thankful we have IGMR. Over the years it has been much more informative and reliable than any place on the web. I will be doing my snooping and digging the Internet to help out as usual. Miss you all and see you soon!

          Casey I just reread what you wrote. If you are listed on the federal treasury offset program hotline as having A debt, they are going to take it out of your federal.

            Casey, I’ve had that type of offset before. At first they will just deducted out of your state tax refund. But if the debt is larger than your tax refund, what will ultimately happen is they will offset your federal to cover what they haven’t been able to collect. If that were to ever happen,they simply take what they have to offset, and the rest is forwarded to you, with no delay. It’s not like in years past where you had to wait several weeks beyond

              I also filed on 1/9/2015 using TT and got a text saying accepted on 1/12/2015. Had the graphic bar on WMR up until the 14th or 15th and now it also just say’s Your refund is still being processed and a refund date will be provided when available. Hoping but the end of the week since the 20th is tomorrow!!!

                One W2 down and 1 to go!!

              • #4092711

                  Hi, y’all! We’re a lil behind this year…waiting on my W-2 since I started working back in June *sigh* Here’s hoping to receiving it by sometime next week.

                • #4092702

                    @tiffygirl thank you for answering :)

                  • #4092696

                      Filed 12/29, wmr says return received…I hope in the next few days it changes to processed and approved and sent!!! Last year, I filed early as well and dd was deposited on 2/7! I’ve got my coffee and turbo shots ready and am hoping for the same results this year!!

                    • #4092695

                        @smat @concerned I know last year ut meant that your refund was being processed it was like that for 2 to 3 days then it had ddd on wmr. Hoping for you both its the same this year

                      • #4092691

                          It says tax topic 152

                        • #4092690

                            @concerned. Mine says that now too. Anyone have any ideas what if means?

                          • #4092688

                              Any HRB in test batch? HRB says transmitted but no acceptance. Filed on jan 7th

                                  mine says the same thing. it has for 5 days they must be holding them

                              • #4092683

                                  My bars disappeared and now it only says
                                  “Your refund is still being processed”
                                  “A refund date will be provided when available”

                                  What does this mean what happened??

                                • #4092681

                                    I just filed my federal. My NY state still had a form that wasn’t ready until the 16th. I hope it’s not too late to get an early acceptance. Here’s hoping.

                                  • #4092680

                                      Hey yall, it’s that wonderful time of year again, I am in the test batch for the 3rd year in a row, hope its smoother than last year, it’s on – the wondering, waiting, insomnia, insane amounts of caffine, this year is just getting started, may the force be with you!

                                    • #4092676

                                        Has anyone that used Tax Act been approved? i usually use TT but this year they wanted to charge me for the same form I have always used so I went with Tax Act

                                      • #4092670

                                          Prior early filers, how long does it usually take them to process test batches? This is my first time filing and getting accepted early. Kind of new to the process

                                        • #4092669

                                            Hello from Montana! I filed 1/13/15 about 6:15am. I got my TT email saying it was sent successfully. Around 8am I got another email saying that my return was accepted by the IRS with the standard 21 days chatter. Later in the afternoon for grins and giggles I checked the WRM tool on the IRS site and it said it was accepted and being processed. I took it one step further and went to the SBBT website, entered my info and there was my account. So far so good. Now just sit back pray the rest goes as smoothly.

                                          • #4092663

And I pray this year goes by smoothly. Last year was to much for me to handle almost.. good luck and heres to a happy taxmas

                                            • #4092656

                                                I’m very excited. My school informed us that we get our W2s tomorrow. I cant wait to at least see my refund amount. I probably won’t get accepted into the test batch of I file tomorrow through TT.

                                              • #4092655

Did not get my refund until September ((OUCH))…I am here again this year… but no early filing… I have a regular wage job to go along with my SE so…. still waiting on my W2 … Good Luck everyone! Cheers to a smooth Taxmas

                                                    So I might of spoke too soon. I was able to select 2014 on the IRS App, but on their website it is not listed. don’t know if that means anything or what. Just thought I would share.

                                                  • #4092653

                                                      Yes becky. It means that you can look at the cycle number and know when you are getting your deposit. The numbers stand for YYYYWWDD

                                                    • #4092651

                                                        So I didn’t follow things super closely last year, but I know there was something with ordering return transcripts once things were done processing. I went on the irs app and was able to order my return transcripts for 2014. I don’t know if this even means anything. What do you guys think?

                                                            I just checked turbo tax and my refund that was filed on 1/9 has been ACCEPTED….the wait is on and people will see if this will be and amazing tax year or if it will have more holes than fruit loops

                                                                If we file with our last pay stub and the income is different than the w2…will my refund be flagged or will i get a refund and then a letter from IRS later?

                                                                    TurboTax is apparently playing catch up with notifications :) WMR had updated for me, then TT switched from pending to accepted a couple of hours later and I just *NOW* had a text from TT that the IRS accepted my return.

                                                                  • #4092619

                                                                    • #4092618

                                                                                        I honestly look for them to start accepting and pulling in terms next couple of days. Last year I submitted mine on the 4th and they got accepted on the 24th. They didn’t officially open till like the 30th so they started testing about a week b4. They officially open next week so I look for things to start rolling between now and Wednesday of this week but that’s just my opinion: )

                                                                                          As part of controlled IRS testing, a small number of federal returns will be transmitted to the IRS between January 12th and January 16th, 2015. This is before processing officially begins on January 20th. If you receive an acknowledgement during this timeframe, your return has been accepted by the IRS but your refund will not be processed early.

                                                                                          If you expect a federal refund, the IRS Where’s My Refund? tool will provide personalized information about your tax return beginning January 31st. The timeframe for issuing refunds will not begin before this date.

                                                                                          The IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days. See What to Expect for Refunds for more information on when to expect your refund.

And do you think they pull very many returns? Again, I know no one knows for sure, but what’s your best guess based on previous years. Thanks!

                                                                                              Hey! I’m back again for another year! I recognize some names in here. Hope you all are doing well! Is it too late for me to join this party? My taxes are ready to be submitted through TT but I’m having to wait on that darn 1095-a form from the Marketplace before I can hit that file button. I’m impatient and just want to get this over with. Our tax situation is a little more complicated than last year. Ugh.

                                                                                            • #4092603

                                                                                              • #4092602

I filed through TT. I’ve used them for several years. I know they charged me too much, but since I know how to use them, and like their program, I kept using them again. Hope all goes well. I had that form pop up at the end, but I just put a 0 in the line 4. Hope that was right.

                                                                                                • #4092601

Let’s get the coffee going and get this party started. Going to be an interesting tax season for sure!

Can’t believe it has been a year already. I got my w-2 today and tested out HRB, TurboTax and Taxact. TurboTax gave me the best refund because they said the insurance penalty was waived but the other 2 tried to charge me $100 because my husband didn’t have insurance last year. Also HRB tried to charge $9.95 because schedule EIC was not available on the FRee edition. What crap. I used Turbo Tax last year and was not disappointed so I happy to stay with them again this year. I was so tempted to hit submit but I do need to wait on a form 1099 from selling some company stock thru my job. I only sold a little over $400 last year. Does anyone think it would hurt me if I didn’t claim it?

                                                                                                                  • #4092551

I have all the information stored in TT and am just waiting to do the income part. I hope to get my refund on the 5th. It’s that a realistic goal?

Is there something I haven’t heard about causing a delay in processing a return? It didn’t tell me on Taxslayer it would cause a delay.

My son is a college student and all his tuition and room and board is paid by scholarships/grants, however I do pay his books,computer, expenses. I did qualify for 1000 credit but I did not take it I was so scared of being delayed, etc…. So I’m bummed about that since I could’ve used that extra grand, who cant? But oh well, maybe I can amend it. What proof would I need? We dont get the 1098 form since his education is paid for with untaxed dollars.

I did the free version, since mine is simple. Hopefully it’s a smooth process… the waiting begins and stalking all the pages, lol!!! This is my first year filing this early, so I hope I made the right choice. I usually filed right when the irs “opens”….or the night before and I’ve been accepted then.

Answer was zero so hoping it won’t affect anything. Never submitted this early before but want it in and money back lol.

I am debating about submitting it. Last year I remembered people who submitted early having issues of it being held up once they opened. What do you think? Should I submit it,to be held in queue for when IRS opens???

Filed early last year and irs took slightly longer to accept but all was well. Has anyone efiled through tax slayer yet? Finished my federal and was asked if I’m ready to efile. Not sure if I should wait till irs actually opens this year or just do it now.

I owe about 300 on a student loan to my state that is to be offset. When I call the federal offset number the debt is listed. I am certain they told me they would only take my state return as it should well cover it and then some. Why would they offset my federal as well? When there is an offset, does it take a longer time to get your refund? Thank you.
