FINALLY! After 12 very long weeks my tax transcripts have update! My check was mailed last friday! Should be here today! Man. I don’t think I’m going to be having my refunds direct deposited anymore! I think I will just wait the extra few weeks for a paper check! Good luck to everyone!!May 18, 2015 at 3:38 pm #4111902Brianda Moore
So pretty much, after lots of research and talking to the IRS I’m pretty sure i have this whole situation down. When you got the notice in the mail and were given a 8-10 week time frame that was specifically for the reviewing department to determine that it wasn’t a fraud atempt on your account and for them to release your funds. They have 8-10 weeks to review your account and release your funds. If it goes past the 10 weeks then the IRS can send a referral to the reviewing department on your behalf basically telling them to hurry up. So unfortunately for you they have 30 days now to decide what they are going do. If they release your money it will be 4-6 to recieve your check after that.May 18, 2015 at 3:20 pm #4111901drew
So I called the IRS this morning and spoke to a rep about my cp53a notice dated 3/2/15. He told me the bank sent it back cause my name wasn’t on the account blah blah blah. He put me on hold and wrote something up to send to the department that was “researching” my account and told me they have 30 days to respond and if I haven’t heard anything to call back after 30 days have gone by. Has anyone else gone through this scenario and have any info as to what I should expect to happen?May 18, 2015 at 12:44 pm #4111897Brianda Moore
I’m inthe exact same boat. But the 8-10 weeks doesn’t start until the date on the notice you received not the date you got it in the mail. My notice had a date of March 2nd on it. Called the IRS on the 11th, which is when the 10 weeks was up, lady told me my money was released and it would take 4-6 weeks to issue the check. She said it was done by the computer so it could be sooner. I haven’t had any updates at all on WMR or tax transcript yet.May 18, 2015 at 12:29 pm #4111896Anonymous
Has anyone had this problem I filed Jan 23 was suppose to have my refund Feb. 4 got letter Feb. 23 saying I have wait 8-10 weeks my ten weeks was up May 4 I called IRS April 29 they sad my refund was put on hold they released it that day I called back May 15 was told again it had been put on hold again and it was just released May 12 and I have to wait 4-6 weeksMay 17, 2015 at 8:38 pm #4111892linzmama76
Filed electronically and accepted 2/17. Bank rejected and sent back 2/23 Due to husband nor being on my account and it was a joint refund. Got tax advocate, who said May 11 that my “case was closed out successfully, that irs was done checking it and check should be mailed no later than May 23. Today is may 17, and I feel doubtful now I will get it, since my tax transcript now says June 1!!! Can anyone relate or explain this???May 17, 2015 at 9:53 am #4111891Johna
My dd was rejected by be bank due to name on account on jan 30th. It’s now may 17th and no check and no end in site! I’ve talked to the its about once a week if not more! I already I’d verifies myself and every time I talk to an agent they give me a new timeline last one said another 30 days on the 14. Anyone have any suggestions or help?May 15, 2015 at 8:51 am #4111869Angie
I’m still waiting now I have a code of 290?!?May 14, 2015 at 12:12 am #4111859Brianda More
Any updates yet? Anyone else still waiting? Monday was the 10 week deadline for my March 2nd notice. Called the IRS yesterday. Lady told me they just released my money the day before and it would take 3-4 weeks to issue me a check. Why do they give a 8-10 week deadline then dont do anything for you when the deadline passes? Really frustrating….April 29, 2015 at 12:36 am #4111624jenny
Thanks for the update I’m sorry to hear that, I have a feeling it’s going to be something like that on my end also but I haven’t had a chance to get through to them, I just don’t understand why they don’t tell us that sort of thing sooner! Good grief… I hope it goes quicker than expected for you, please continue to keep me posted I will too:)April 28, 2015 at 11:17 pm #4111623MGM6
I finally got through last night. I did have one thing that was entered incorrectly. The rep tried to fix it for me but it wouldn’t let her. She noted I would be sending in my amended return. She did say that was what was holding me up. So now we’ll see. Ill probably get my refund at the end of June now since amended returns have to be mailed in. Ugh… I just wish I would have seen it sooner so I could have fixed it earlier.April 28, 2015 at 5:29 pm #4111618drew
Yeah, just be patient. Even though I don’t need the 1550 I’m getting back id like to have it to blow on something stupid. Mine was rejected cause I had mine sent to my gfs card even though she followed the steps and rules that were outlined by the company and added me as an account holder Yet it was still rejected. My notice was dated 3/2. I’m just checking every Friday and if I haven’t received another notice or a date when the 10th week is up I’ll give the irs a call. It just seems random as to when people who have name mismatch or aren’t on the account get their refunds.April 28, 2015 at 4:23 pm #4111617Brianda Moore
F*** the IRS. Seriously. Am I the only one with absolutely no update yet? My DDD was February 3rd!! What the heck is taking so long? It was just a last name mix up nothing that serious. Makes me angry that my husband and myself work hard and pay a ton into taxes just for stuff like this. Shoot I was only getting back $1400! No transcript update no WMR update. This is crazy.
Maybe I’m not doing the tax transcript thing right? You just go to get transcript, sign in, and then go to 2014 account summary right? And download the transcript??April 27, 2015 at 9:19 pm #4111605regina
finally received my check today!! thanks everyone for all the info! …. I had a due date of feb 11th and it was bank rejected…..finally….wmr never updated.April 26, 2015 at 9:56 pm #4111589Brianda Moore
It starts from the date on the notice you received. My notice was dated March 2 so the 8-10 weeks starts then.April 26, 2015 at 3:01 am #4111579Nicole
does the 10 weeks go from the date on your Cp53a or the day you got it in the mail??April 25, 2015 at 1:20 pm #4111562louie
i got my 846 code on friday april 15 no check yet and no wmr update did wmr update for you guys after you got your 846 code? OR SHOULD I NOT WORRY ABOUT THAT AND JUST WAIT FOR MY CHECK TO COME IN IRS SAID 2-3 WEEKS FROM THE DATE I CALLED THEM WHICH WAS APRIL 13April 24, 2015 at 5:28 pm #4111549drew
Anyone have their as of date change to a different date then go back to the previous one? My as of date is March 2 then it changed to may 4 and today it changed back to march 2.April 24, 2015 at 4:26 pm #4111548jenny
@mgm6 thanks for the update I have the exact same situation this am, as of date changed to 5/11 also a 570 code I have no idea what to think and I just talked to irs last week and they just said wait the full 10 weeks…. Will you let me know if they tell you anything? Now I’m even more worried and a ta won’t help until after my 10 weeks which is up may 4th…thanks!April 24, 2015 at 2:45 pm #4111546MGM6
my as of date has chaged to 5-11-15 and now I have 570 on transcript. I think I know why but I’ll have to check after work and see if I fax my amended return or I’ll mail it in.April 20, 2015 at 2:01 am #4111457bonnybleu83
so sorry you’re going thru this. BUT…there is a light at the end of this long tunnel. if your tax transcripts updated with a new date AND showed tax code, “846 w/ cycle date 20151505”, that means that your check will be sent first class USPS on april 24th. it will take 3-4 business days for it to arrive. if you live in the eastern part of the U.S., then your check will be mailed from Philly. if you live in the western part of the states, your check is coming from Tx (could be wrong about the latter part). on 4/24, you can contact the U.S. Treasury Dept. and provide your name, SSN, and DOB and they can confirm that your money was sent to them by the IRS and that a paper check was issued on that date. good luck! hope this helps!April 19, 2015 at 8:19 pm #4111455Brianda Moore
I have a feeling mine is going to be one of the select few to have a full blown audit on. Still no changes on anything. There’s only 3 weeks left until the 10 week deadline. I just don’t understand why some people have gotten a 846 code already and mine hasn’t updated. This really bites.April 19, 2015 at 11:54 am #4111446regina
@bonnybleu83 …. same situation as u were…except no TA. My transcripts updated to 846 on April 17th with a new cycle date of 20151505… My question is how long after ur transcripts updated to 846 did u know ur mail date. Im just tryn to figure out when it will be mailed…. people tell me they only mail on Fridays others say different…. any help is appreciated! THANKSApril 19, 2015 at 12:25 am #4111444bonnybleu83
UPDATE‼️ after two and a half seemingly never-ending months of disappointments, setbacks, and frustrations, I FINALLY HAVE MY PAPER CHECK. good luck to all of y’all!
P.S. after countless hours of researching tax codes, leaning the IRS jargon, reading hundreds of different tax topics, speaking to several different IRS agents, and learning my rights as a taxpayer, i would like to think i’m fairly knowledgeable of the process for folks whose DDD was rejected by bank due to name mismatch, monies were returned, CP53A notice sent out, etc – so, if any of y’all need any advice, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
approved DDD: 2/2
bank rejected monies and returned to sender: 2/5.
WMR then updated with “Take Action” ref code: 1121 –
with telephone # and extension.
received CP53A notice: 2/23
contacted IRS and was advised they were “researching” my account, could take 8-10 weeks: 2/23
contacted tax advocate: 3/30
IRS approved hardship request: 4/7
tax transcripts updated to reflect code 846 (refund issued): 4/&
paper check was mailed on 4/15
good luck, y’all! please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for help or questions.

I got my check today its been a long wait but its finally over. God bless everyone and take care.April 13, 2015 at 10:56 pm #4111330jenny
Thanks for letting me know im in the same boat i dont have time to call them ever, lets hope for some good updates soon! For anyone else in this situation please let me know whats happening on your end:)April 13, 2015 at 10:12 pm #4111328MGM6
No I have not been able to call. I figured I’d give them at least the 8 weeks. Its already been six whats 2 more. I work 8- 5 and it’s hard for me to make time to call.April 13, 2015 at 8:00 pm #4111324jenny
Thanks for answering i hope not too.. I was wondering if you happened to call to find out if your review was finished or not like the other person i believe it was regina that said that? I have not been able to get ahold of the irs to ask, thanks!April 13, 2015 at 7:24 pm #4111323MGM6
I received the same letter, 4464c, on Saturday but mine was dated 4/6. I know my work has already reported my wages to the IRS so hopefully it will not take the full 60 days.April 13, 2015 at 6:05 pm #4111322jenny
Hey everyone i have been on this crappy irs ride since jan 30th which is when my refund was rejected because of name mismatch. Dont qualify for a TA they say my question is now whats happenening is sunday night the 13th of april finally a little trancsript movement as of date changed to 4/27 from 2/16 after all this time so i was hopeful because i saw a few of you post the same movement then mail comes today with a 4464c letter dated april 10th??? Anyone of you with that new as of date get this letter? Any help is appreciated!April 13, 2015 at 9:24 am #4111300De5670
Good news I called the treasury department a few minutes ago to see if my check has been mailed. Well the lady told me it was mailed this morning and it is coming from Philadelphia. I will let everyone know when I actually receives it my hands. Now its time to stalk the mail man.April 10, 2015 at 8:55 pm #4111255De5670
The reason why Regina gotten the 4-27 as a receive date is because her transcript change to that because the IRS is done reviewing her account. But, that is the only movement she saw so far on her transcript. She called the IRS and they informed her they were done reviewing her account. On Monday call the IRS to see if they are done researching your account.April 10, 2015 at 7:49 pm #4111254Brianda Moore
That’s the 10 week deadline? I’m confused. I had a a notice of 3-2 too and the 10 week deadline for that is May 11th. I have not had any update on my transcripts yet. My DD date was 2-3.April 10, 2015 at 7:00 pm #4111253De5670
The date of April 27 is actually the deadline for them to mail the checks out. Regina you are correct you should have your check by then keep watching the transcript for an update of 846 refund issued it should be this weekend or some times next week.April 10, 2015 at 6:37 pm #4111250regina
Mgm6…… we are in the same situation exactly. …i was told Wednesday by the irs that they were finished reveiwing i believe thats why my as of date changed… i believe that my check will be mailed by that dateApril 10, 2015 at 2:12 pm #4111242MGM6
I received CP53a dated 3/2. I had my refund rejected on 2/11. I’ve been checking my transcripts and I noticed my as of date changed from 3/2 to 4/27. Nothing else has changed. Not sure if thats a good thing or bad. And I don’t have a TAApril 10, 2015 at 9:19 am #4111228zach
A 570 code does not mean its a full audit.April 10, 2015 at 12:35 am #4111225Brianda Moore
Glad to hear some of you have gotten a refund mail date! The way I look at it…My notice date was 3-2, the 10 weeks is up May 11th. The letter I got stated it would take 8-10 weeks for a refund to be issued. I’m seeing a lot of you are getting a date of 4-15 for your check to be mailed. Let’s just assume it takes a week to get to you…you should receive it by 4-22. That’s only roughly 2 weeks earlier then the 10 week time frame. So it’s not that much sooner! I think if I can wait this long what’s 2 more weeks going to do??April 8, 2015 at 11:30 pm #4111188bonnybleu83
GOD IS GOOD! i checked my tax transcripts and UPDATE!
TA then called and said IRS’ notes indicated that my hardship request has been approved and check would be mailed on 4/15. i know, based on the state where i reside, that the letter is coming from philly. my refund check will FINALLY be in my hands in a week. y, all, i can tell you from personal experience that obtaining a TA (if applicable, or if one qualifies) is an excellent tool in cutting waiting time in half. they are able to axon verse directly with the IRS and get answers we wouldnt otherwise know.
good like to yall! i i hope everything works out for everyone…April 8, 2015 at 9:17 pm #4111184Shi
My transcripts updated to my amended return being accepted on 3/25. I spoke with my advocate and she stated that my refund should be released to the treasury department on Friday and my check should be kicked our next Friday! The newest date on my transcript next to my money is 4/27! I believe I should have my money by that date. Keep you updated & good luck to you all.April 8, 2015 at 11:19 am #4111168De5670
My TA just called me to tell me that my check is scheduled to mailed out on 4-13 I will y’all know when the treasury department mail it out.April 7, 2015 at 3:27 pm #4111154bonnybleu83
didn’t you say your transcripts updated with a 570 code?! that’s not good, if so. that means that they have selected your retuen to go thru manual audit department. i was told by my advocate that, sometimes, a suspected ID fraud case (like ours in which bank sent back theft code when rejected our monies) can prompt a full-blown audit, hence code 570. have you spoken with your advocate about that since your most recent transcript update?April 7, 2015 at 8:26 am #4111143De5670
You can look up your state local tax advocate on the internet or you can call the tax advocate hotline which is 1-877-777-4778.April 6, 2015 at 11:01 pm #4111137chris
How do you find your local TA?April 6, 2015 at 8:45 am #4111112De5670
Yes I had an tax advocate to help me get through my situation. But, girl I am praying for you to see some updates soon. Don’t give up because God has it under control he sees your struggles and he will get you through this.April 6, 2015 at 6:13 am #4111111Brianda Moore
You’re very lucky! :/
You’re going through the tax advocate right?April 5, 2015 at 11:08 am #4111102De5670
My wording changed on WMR to we have received your return and it is being processed.April 4, 2015 at 7:40 pm #4111097De5670
My transcript updated to a cycle code 2015401 and a code of 846 refund issued 4-27-2015. But, WMR hasn’t updated yet. I will keep you updated with more information.April 2, 2015 at 1:42 pm #4110980bonnybleu83
looks like you are in the exact same boat as @De5670, @Shi, @Brenda Moore, & myself. we all had an approved return rejected by bank due to the fact that we were not listed as account holder(s). the good thing is that we are not being “audited” nor is your account in “review”, per se. the IRS is “researching” your account due to suspected ID theft based upon the exact error code your bank sent back. your transcripts should read:
846 (refund issued)
841 (refund cancelled)
971 (notice sent)
the date to the right of the 971 code is the date the 8-10 weeks countdown starts.
If you can send in docs via fax corroborating that you are experiencing a hardship (delinquent utilities, auto repossession, eviction notices, etc) then you will be assigned a tax advocate (not always local; mine is located in OR due to influx of cases in my state) who will work on you behalf in expediting a mail date for your return. the IRS has 7-10 business days to respond to tax advocate (TA) from the date the TA sends over hardship paperwork.
and/or i would keep calling the IRS until you get someone who is helpful and gives you updated info on your case. good luck!
@Shi – i wanted to tell you that it appears they are now doing a full-blown audit on your return – based off the info you provided earlier stating that your transcripts undated with a 570 code. that is NOT good. i would contact the IRS/TA immediately to check on the status of that. my TA told me that everything should go smoothly with my hardship request UNLESS the IRS decided to actually audit – which takes an additional 2 months. let me know what your TA says when you talk with them about your updated tax code.
@De5670. please keep us updated. looks like there is a glimmer of hope for you, my friend. good luck!April 1, 2015 at 5:54 am #4110929Brianda Moore
Nothing to really update on my end. It’s been 4 weeks already. Pretty disappointed nothing has changed on WMR or my transcripts. I don’t qualify for a TA unfortunately. So I have to sit here and wait. I thought for sure it wouldn’t take the whole 8-10 weeks but it sure is looking that way :/March 31, 2015 at 8:56 pm #4110924Shi
She should still try it. I called the TA hotline and the hotline stated I didnt qualify for an advocate and I called my local office and they helped me more than anyone ever has in regards to the IRS. If I would’ve called for an advocate in the beginning I would have had my check a lonnnnnggggg time ago. I just got in touch with an advocate two weeks ago and I already have the IRS releasing my funds to a paper check. If I wouldve called right after I received my CP53A notice I would have my money now but to each its own. If I wouldve never contacted an advocate than I’d be waiting until May 11th for something to happen with my account but fortunately thats not my case :) You can sit around and wait the full 8 to 10 weeks if you want to. Have a good day!
Be sure to call your local TA to see what you qualify for it doesnt hurt to check.March 31, 2015 at 6:03 pm #4110922beth
Not everyone can get a tax advocate. And I have yet to see anyone actually get their refunds faster with one.March 31, 2015 at 5:56 pm #4110921Shi
Be sure to call your LOCAL tax advocate service.March 31, 2015 at 5:23 pm #4110919beth
Rachel, if you can see your transcripts online, you can see a 971 code with a date. Thats a notice issued that the bank rejected your deposit. From there it goes into a review process and its a 8-10 week wait. SorryMarch 31, 2015 at 5:15 pm #4110918Rachael
Hi I found out today that on 3/25/15 my bank returned my refund because my husbands name wasn’t on the account with me. I files on 1/30/15 can’t believe this is all just happening. Anyways does anyone know how long it will now take? The hotline lady said as long as my name and SS match it should be okay but said she couldn’t give me a time frame? Does anyone know?March 31, 2015 at 11:06 am #4110911Shi
My transcript has updated to 4/20/15 but the new code listed is 570 and is asking for additional account information pending. I believe this is because I had to correct my return due to receiving an additional W2 form. I will keep you guys posted hopefully I hear something from my TA today in regards to what this means. Good Luck to you all.March 30, 2015 at 8:25 pm #4110900Shi
I did not speak with my TA however I did call the hotline because my TA is off on Mondays and was told that my TA pushed thru my verifcation and the IRS sent out paperwork and received it back so the next step is that they release my funds so im hoping to hear good news from my TA sometime this week.
I have seen your situation on the fb version of i got my refund as far as the id verify but now it seems as if you are going to be in the same situation as us because you arent on your husbands account you should be receiving a CP53A notice or a CP53 something notice. Hopefully its just the CP53 notice but I would wait until the date it says to call the IRS to say what they are going to do. Since youve already been under manual review I would hope they would just send you a CP53 notice with your check following shortly after the fact. The CP53A notice is when it takes 8 to 10 weeks to receive your refund check if you receive a CP53A notice, get in touch with your LOCAL Tax Advocate service ASAP! Hope this helps you.March 30, 2015 at 6:50 pm #4110898Christina
So I have been through the ringer this tax season and can’t seem to find anyone wit a situation like mine. I f/a 1/20 it went through to a ddd of 2/11, the 11th came and went and it updated to a refund cancelled wit an 1121 reference code…. it took what seemed like forever for that to go away… March the 2nd i verified my id online bc i was told that might b the issue. it went through or seemed like it did, spoke to someone a few days later she said she was doing a referral for release of my refund, i got a letter on the 4th dated feb 26th saying i needed to call and verify my id i called a million times, until i finally got through last friday, verified and it went through (so i don’t know that it ever went through online) any way i got an update this past friday saying 846 refund issued and wmr updated sat 2 bars, wit a ddd of 4/1, so i call the bank (which is in my husband’s name we are separated, but i use his account), and it’s been rejected (was rejected march 27th before it was even supposed to deposit, now i have no idea what’s going to happen, they’ve already done a full manual review… so now what ppl are saying 1 week and others are sayin 8-10 but i can’t find anyone who’s already been through the review process and then had it rejected… so i am just wondering if there is anyone in my situation, who could provide me wit some insight!March 30, 2015 at 12:28 pm #4110893De5670
Update This Morning!
I just got a call from my tax advocate she gave me a status on my refund. She said the IRS verified what they needed to verified they went right ahead released my refund. She said the reason why I haven’t saw an update yet was because it took a week to process from a dd to a paper check. She said she will call me next Wednesday on the 8th of April with a mail date. I tell you God is good. I will let y’all know when my mail date is.March 27, 2015 at 5:38 pm #4110847De5670
No I haven’t heard from her today, but I called the tax advocate hotline. And, the man told me that Martinez had noted on the case that I had faxed over my information the 23rd of March. I don’t know who Martinez is, but my tax advocate name is Tanisha Chamberlain and she received my information on the 10th because that is what she told me last week. So, I guess that must be somebody she had to faxed it to on my behalf. The man told it also noted that contact date is 3-30 to get back with me with an update. That is all I know right now.March 27, 2015 at 5:31 pm #4110846Shi
The IRS faxed a wage verification over to my job yesterday so I should be hearing something from my TA next week.March 27, 2015 at 4:58 pm #4110842bonnybleu83
did your tax advocate contact you today? any updates?March 26, 2015 at 5:43 pm #4110812De5670
No my advocate didn’t tell me that the bank labeled the rejected refund as ID fraud. But, I will give an update once she call me either tomorrow or Monday because she supposed to call me either on or before the 30th.March 26, 2015 at 2:02 pm #4110804Shi
I filed with one dependent and no she didnt say that it was because of fraud or because the bank rejected my return. I told her personally about the bank rejecting my return and she stated it was possibly returned because i need to provide a wage verification because of who my employer is. I will update hopefully by the 5th or 8th depending on when she calls me.
Good luck to you as well.March 26, 2015 at 1:57 pm #4110803bonnybleu83
it’s so frustrating that we paid taxes ALL year long and our refunds get approved. then, the “manual” research gives the IRS an excuse to scrutinize over every aspect of an already approved return. BUT…@De5670 – to answer your question – yes, it’s ridiculous that you have got to fax in docs for credits already approved on your return. BUT…once the IRS started manually researching our accounts, that gave them power to be able to go back and research anything they wanted to. which is why they are now questioning YOUE educ. credits. my advocate told me that all we could do was hope that a manual “research” of the account does not turn into an actual audit – bc then it will be 2-4 months. just waiting until 1st or 2nd week in april when the IRS has had their mandated 7-10 day time to reply to hardship request.
1. did yall file w/ any dependents?
2. did your advocate specify that the initial reason our refunds were held was due to suspected ID fraud bc of bank rejecting refund?
please remember to post when yalls advocate lets yalls kno if the hardship request was approved by IRS.
good luck!March 25, 2015 at 10:28 am #4110772Shi
Yes my TA explained to me that I needed to fax in my wage verification and any missed w2 forms as well as an amended return. The IRS didnt tell me anything of the sort so that was my situation. I am just waiting on my TA to correspond with me on the next step from her sending all of this information into the IRS.March 24, 2015 at 6:56 pm #4110719De5670
You are correct yes the bank rejected my refund because of mismatched name. When I got the TA she researched my account, and she found that the IRS was done reviewing the account on 2-26-15. But, she said what the extra hold up is because of the education credit I claimed. However, I didn’t know nothing about the education credit being the hold up until the TA research my account because as I know the reason for the hold up was because the bank rejected the refund and how they labeled it. But, my question is why the IRS would hold up my refund for the education credit when they approved the refund to be direct deposit in the first? So, now that the bank rejected the refund and because the way the bank labeled it now the IRS has questions about the education credit. So, that the bottom line to my story.March 24, 2015 at 6:05 pm #4110717bonnybleu83
i also see where y’all faxed info corroborating educational credits claimed on returns, and faxes in wage verification docs. was this something your advocate asked you to send in after they looked at your individual returns, during the time when you were requesting a hardship refund? the reason i am asking is because our refunds were held for the same reason – bank rejected DDD due to our names not being on account….
i wasn’t asked to submit anything but hardship docs….
she did confirm that my retuen was being “researched” because of suspected ID fraud based on the bogus reject code my stupid green dot bank sent back to IRS.March 24, 2015 at 5:57 pm #4110716bonnybleu83
i spoke AT LENGTH with my tax advocate about the hardship process from start to finish (likelihood of IRS approving, timeframe until check could be mailed, current status of return, best case & worst case scenarios – the whole nine yards). and i also researched online. i think we have been given some misinformation about the hardship request and how the process works……
once you fax over all requested docs to your assigned tax advocate, they, in turn, fill out paperwork and send forms to IRS. The next day, IRS opens a case based on hardship info sent by tax advocate on our behalf . @Shi – you were right that it does take 7-10 business for IRS to make a decision. but, i think a lot of us (including myself) were under the impression that check was mailed shortly after that. NOT TRUE. after the 7-10 business days, the IRS contacts our advocates and advises IF the hardship was even approved. best case scenario – hardship is approved and a check will be put into the system and cut within 1 week from date of hardship decision. BUT…my tax advocate let me know that the IRS is VERY strict about hardship requests and that there is a 50/50 chance it will or won’t be approved. also, the advocate told me that she will not know the extent to which IRS is researching our accounts until they send her info after the 7-10 days. she said that IRS may request additional info IF they randomly select the return to go to examination dept (manual AUDIT, worst case scenario). she said, If that’s the case, it would be 2-4 months before a check could be issued IF everything checked out. she told me that Georgia is so backed up with advocacy claims that my case was routed to her in Oregon. she was very nice, though. and told me to hope for the best, in that my check would arrive in 2-3 weeks from yesterday…
just giving yall a heads up. i will have a better idea about what’s going to happen once yalls 7-10 day timeframe is up and yalls advocate tells y’all the response from the IRS…
there is an end in sight! just hoping and praying that it’s in our favours…March 24, 2015 at 10:40 am #4110649Shi
Spoke with my advocate on friday after she received the paperwork as far as my hardship and wage verification. I had to file an amended return due to not receiving a w2 form by the time i filed. My TA faxed all of my information over today and she said that the IRS has 10 business days to respond to her. After the 7th of April my funds should be released but I have an offset so the money has to be sent to the Department of Treasury and then to me. She said I should receive my money hopefully by the 3rd week of April. Ive waited this long three more weeks cant hurt :) keep me postedMarch 24, 2015 at 9:34 am #4110636De5670
Know haven’t heard anything from my advocate yet to when I will be receiving my check in the mail. I did call her last week to see if she received the information I faxed to her, and her response was yes. But, she didn’t say whether she sent the information on over to the IRS. Well in the beginning when she first called me on March 9th she stated I wouldn’t be hearing from her until the 30th of March or before. Also, she did say once she have the release my money it would take a week to update. So, probably would hear something from her this week she did say on the 30th or before the 30th.March 24, 2015 at 12:13 am #4110616bonnybleu83
UPDATE – i spoke with my tax advocate today and she was bases out of OR. she was ️VERY kind and helpful. i faxed over my electric notice and she stayed in the ofc until she received it and confirmed she was sending hardship request to IRS on this date. she stated that, once IRS received a hardship request, they have 7-10 business days (2 weeks roughly) to respond to advocate regarding status of request. my advocate told me that the IRS is strict about approving such requests. but she said she was going to do everything she could to get approved. said she would call me 2nd week of april after hearing from IRS. she said ️best case scenario – IRS approves the request and money will be here in 2-3 weeks from today’s date. OR, worse-case scenario – IRS could possibly send my return to examination (review dept) and then i’m screwed because it will be 2-4 months. so, it’s just a waiting game right now…
have any of you gotten any updates from your advocate?March 22, 2015 at 1:04 am #4110566De5670
Who have a tax payer advocate working with you because the IRS is holding your refund do to education tax credit. If so how long has it been and is your tax payer advocate close in getting your money? Has your advocate gave you any kind of update yet?March 20, 2015 at 12:26 pm #4110515Shi
I dropped off my paperwork to the IRS building this morning instead of faxing it in that way I know that they received the information. I will update again once I hear from my TA
