    Dead Cycles – A Week Counter

    Definition- ECC-MTB Posting Cycles during which MASTER FILE postings do not occur.

    No data is lost. The delay in posting is solely related to start-up for the yearly changes to the Master Files.

    For BMF, there are two dead cycles each year. For 2015, they are ECC-MTB Posting Cycles 201501 and 201502. BMF transactions that are sent from the campus locations during GMF Campus Production Cycles 201501, 201502, and 201503 will attempt to post to the BMF during ECC-MTB Posting Cycle 201503.

    For IMF, there are three dead cycles each year. For 2015, they are ECC-MTB Posting Cycles 201501, 201502, and 201503. IMF transactions that are sent from the campus locations during GMF Campus Production Cycles 201501, 201502, 201503, and 201504 will attempt to post to the IMF during ECC-MTB Posting Cycle 201504.

    Most campus processing can continue during the dead cycles. Just as with Accelerated Cycles, the majority of the impact is on Master File processing at ECC-MTB.

    @Ms A

    Going by the confirmation number I got through the preparer, it contains 201502, though this cannot be confirmed since transcripts are not available. I had insurance already, not through the ACA site, but through another source. All that information was given when I filed my taxes.

    So, filing early does nothing but cause chaos, while those filing later are placed ahead of you in line. Now, if it were me owing the IRS money, they’d already be kicking in my door demanding the money. When it’s them owing me money (and collecting interest on it as long as they have it), they ignore us and tell us to wait. I know mine aren’t the only taxes they’re processing, but filing my taxes isn’t the only thing I have to do either.

    Did you both have 2101502 cycle? did you guys have market place insurance? I think those two reasons are holding us up

    Filed/accepted 1/22, bars missing, transcripts N/A, same boat as you. I completely agree.

    I’d like to know what’s going on as well. I filed 1/15, accepted 1/21, and still NOTHING. No transcripts, WMR at “received”, and no further information given. The IRS is useless, they say they can’t (AKA “Don’t bother us… unless you owe us money”) give any information until 2/12.
