    February 15, 2019 First Day for processing EITC and ACTC-related tax returns
    February 16, 2019 Financial institutions must mail out 1099-B, 1099-S and 1099-MISC forms by this date.
    February 16, 2019 The first day Where’s My Refund? ‎on IRS.gov and the IRS2Go mobile app will be updated for the vast majority of early filers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. Before Feb. 15, some taxpayers may see a projected date or a message that the IRS is processing their return. Taxpayers will not see a refund date on Where’s My Refund? ‎or through their software packages until then.
    February 27, 2019 The First Day the IRS will begin to release EITC/ACTC refunds to bank accounts and debit cards. — if there are no processing issues with the tax return and the taxpayer chose direct deposit.

    Not sure why politics have to be brought up, last I checked not a political thread.

    Has anyone received their refund without WMR ever updating after verification?

    The title of this thread should be changed to “Reply to:EITC/ACTC, won’t see their returns. Ever”.

    @John WELCOME TO THE CLUB!!!! I bet all the folks that voted for the orange skinned baboon is really enjoying his time in office. Not that this is his fault but all of it is his fault.

    #4311868 Reply


    We filed and accepted on 2/16. No tracking bars after 21 days. WMR says still processing and be notified about a refund date. No other codes except topic 152. Today is 3/11 and after 24 years of filing jointly this is a first for us. Cannot get any answer.

    I’ve been waiting since 2/5. Claimed ACTC.

    File 2/19, accepted 2/20 it’s now 3/8 and stil processing. First year that I’m claiming EITC AND CTC. I’m just so over the waiting 🙄

    F/A 2/6, 1 bar TT152 “received and being processed” until Mon 2/26, then got “STILL processing TT152,” been stuck on that. Received no letters from IRS. Always have had my refund well before 21 days. New job and no time to spend trying to call the IRS. Praying for an update on Mon 3/4 as that will be 1 wk from my last update – perhaps I am a weekly. Very unhappy. I won’t file until March next year.

    Filed Feb 24th
    Accepted Feb 24th
    Approved March 2nd for DDD 3/6 (week after I filed later)
    I have EIC AND CTC But last year I was stuck on “still processing” for almost 2 months I had to get a tax advocate and I.d verify last year don’t know why mine went through so quick this years… very Greatful!

    #4308361 Reply


    No updates for me, still on the same TT152….I am so tired of waiting and stalking WMR.

    #4308348 Reply


    @kyo – I hear you Kyo. I know returns aren’t supposed to be taken for granted but when you get one every year around the same time for 20 years in a row it’s kind of hard NOT to rely on them at some point. Dumbass gov’t can find a way to fuk anything up. Smh.

    #4308339 Reply


    I filed 1/26. Been stuck on still processing message since 2/14. I have spoken with the IRS and learned they sent a ltr and I need to file a form 8962. I hope this will help some of you….I filed with TT. Apparently there is still a glitch with their software when you enter your 1095A for health insurance. I did not have EIC but I did have ACTC. It took 17 days to receive the ltr from IRS and after they get it back I must allow 8 weeks longer for processing. I have done a lot of research and this is happening to a lot of people. As for reaching a human at irs. After you enter your social security nbr dont push anything. Just wait for them to repeat menus it will redirect you to a person.

    Still waiting…Filed/accepted on 1/30, delayed with code 1541 on 2/16, updated to received and being processed on Thursday and didn’t update this morning. Hoping it’ll change with tonight’s update. I can’t access my transcripts on line because the system doesn’t recognize my account numbers so I don’t know what’s happening. I got the one I ordered in the mail yesterday but it was dated for the 23rd and I believe they updated again this past Thursday. I’ll never file early again, this has been the worst tax year ever for me.

    F/A 1/30
    EIC & ACTC
    STILL processing message with no bars
    Transcripts for 2018 say N/A

    I know right, so messed up the people who need it most don’t get it first! I pretty much have given up hope. I have a $800 electric bill that needs to be paid on March 22nd. Looks like that probably won’t happen.

    #4308211 Reply


    I had actc. F/A 2/5. Still NOTHING as of today. Just still processing with generic 152 code. Come the fuk on IRS. Get your shit together and give us hard working folks our money. It’s the ones with EITC/ACTC that need it the most as we have other mouths to feed. Sigh.

    Had bar “Processing”
    Then disappeared
    Spoke to IRS yesterday. She said no letters were sent so possibly in getting refund by this weekend. Nothing in my account yet. I filed early because I need the money being unemployed. And now this. Has anyone gotten their refund? Is there any hope getting it before 45 days is up?

    #4306880 Reply


    I am so frustrated! I filed very early on 1/8 and was accepted on 1/9. I have the Topic 152 and Ref Number 9001 since then.I received my ID verify letter on 2/15 and verified on the phone the same day. No movement, no transcripts….nothing.
    Everytime I try to call the IRS, it tells me that everyone is too busy and to call back next business day. Then HANGS UP on me! Ugh…..I need this money so badly…..I have both EITC/ACTC. Just needed to vent….

    I know people who had the EIC and ACTC who has already gotten their refunds. So this whole waiting till the 27 th is for the birds !!

    #4301860 Reply


    I filed 1/28 as well and am still being processed. No info avail for me either. Been stuck with the processing message since 2/15. I’m trting to be patient but I am definitely beginning to worry.

    #4301602 Reply


    So many people are complaining that they have not gotten their refund yet even though is well within 21 days. The IRS is especially slow this year and many people are delayed. I filed on 1/28 and am still waiting.

    Just continue to try and be patient. Your return might take longer than usual.

    Can someone help please. Still no update for me on wmr. I was accepted 1/25 changed my status 2/16 to the still being processed…blah blah..and today again no change. I have tried calling all nbrs I could find and can not reach a human being. Please what nbr do I call? My transcripts show N/a on the irs website….why is that?

    #4297778 Reply


    Thanks @irsemployee but it looks like WMR updated this morning & I got this message, ”
    Your tax refund is scheduled to be sent to your bank by February 27, 2019.” This changed from “We received your refund & it is being processed.” 2 out of the 3 refund status boxes are checked, i.e. refund received & refund approved, the only one not checked is refund sent. Per H & R block, the refund will load on to my Emerald card within 1 business day:)

    #4297573 Reply


    Call this number if ur WMR didn’t get updated


    Thanks to the person for posting this #. O called refund to hit next Wednesday the 27th.

    Good luck everyone.

    #4296768 Reply



    Go to irs.gov, click on get tax record, click on get transcript. You will have to set up login and confirm identity. Once you are done click on account transcript. If it has an 846 that’s a refund code and will have the intended mail/ddd.

    DD 02/27/2019. However it can deposit sooner than that since every year they put a date on my transcripts for refund and its been earlier.

    Reviewing my transcript, got my 846 code for 2/27. We got the ACTC this year. WMR still shows “still processing” but our refund is approved and we have DDD on the transcript. I wouldn’t put too much faith in WMR until after this weekend.

    That’s the BS line they’re telling everyone! When I brought up how others who have filed after me and claimed both credits got their returns she just kept talking over me saying the same thing over and over again and then hung up on me.

    #4291954 Reply


    After 45 mins on hold I reached a real person at the IRS.
    My refund is being delayed because of the PATH.
    I filed 1/28 EIC/Child Credit.
    Won’t see a DD until 2/27 or after.

    Hey IRS employee one question. If they dont start giving them till the 28th or 27th than why are some people already getting theirs or already have theirs? Hmm seems like the IRS must not know what their talking about than??
