      What Is A Cycle Code Date?

      So what is a cycle code date?
      A cycle code date can be found on a completed Account Transcript. The cycle date reflects the date the transaction is posted to the master file.

      Well, what does it mean?
      A cycle date is designated by an eight digit number indicating the year, week and day of the week (YYYYWWDD) for when you posted to the master file.

      Ok, but I still don’t know what that means…
      Let’s break it down some more:
      -First four numbers indicate year.
      -Next two numbers indicate week of the year
      -Last two numbers indicate day of the week.
      Each day is designated by a two digit number which excludes Saturday and Sunday.

      • Friday= 01
      • Monday= 02
      • Tuesday=03
      • Wednesday=04
      • Thursday=05


      I think I’m starting to get it, but maybe you can give me an example?
      Cycle date: 20170505
      Year: 2017 Week: 05 Day: 05
      Wednesday of the 4th week of 2017
      Actual date: February 2, 2017

      So now I know how it works, but where can I get my Account Transcript so I can see my cycle code?
      By visiting the IRS Get Transcript Tool

        20190605 I tried to figure out the day and week but got no where

        #4279138 Reply

          I have been waiting since 1/28/2019 for my tax return. I realize there is a hold because of the EITC credits and additional child tax credit. I also received an identity verification letter. I am concerned because when i tried to order my transcripts it says I dont have a return on file for 2018. But when I check WMR it still gives me a path message? Has my identity been compromised? I have never received a letter like this. should I be concerned or just wait until Feb 27th 2019 for my DD.

                  so, if my Cycle code is 20181405, it was complete and posted to the Master file on March 29,2018 according to what you are saying. This is April 26 and still nothing… has a processing date of 4/23/2018. So im confused

                        768 help I’m so lost. Everything is accurate I checked everything 10 times before I submitted my return these codes have me worried. Someone help lol

                        #4212566 Reply

                          So IRS accepted on 1/22. Just today I checked for transcripts and the cycle date is 20180505 and a date of February 19,2018.
                          What I am gathering from this is that the funds will probably be released after that date? Can anyone verify? WMR shows topic 152 and PATH act message.

                                #4197819 Reply


                                  I have a 846 code (yay!) on an amended return from 2014 but there is no current cycle code. Any idea how to tell when that will be processed? It had the date listed as 12/15/2017 but I can’t see anything on my account.

                                                So, I know I was weekly last year, but a 20170504 cycle date this year would indicate I’m daily now, correct?
