    I just checked mine at 9:15 and walahh! I have the bars and it says it was approved and ddd will be feb 27. Found out also that they adjusted my refund with $300 more because I made slight errors in my EIC. What a blessing. Indeed patience is a virtue.

    Filed 2/1.
    Accepted 2/1
    Wmr been missing since 2\2 with 152
    152 disappeared 2/3.
    Bars came out with approved 2/23.

    I have been researching and going crazy trying to figure out what to do and thank god I found this site! This has given me answers to my worries on this WMR issue that just didn’t seem right. I was even more relieved to find out that Jenny stated she found out that the WMR won’t even be updated until 2/23! I have been waiting for about a week, if not more, for the thing to move. Not to mention I am finding out that there is no order to these taxes this year. This is the first year that I have experienced this problem and wouldn’t you know that it is the year that is the most important. I checked the site so much the other day, before I knew it was only updated once a day, that it told me my daily times to check had exceeded! What difference does it make for someone like me that does not realize that it is only done once a day. I’m just on edge and I keep praying that it will just show in my bank without that damn WMR even being updated!
    I just need it to come soon! It has been over 21 days if the weekends are counted! UGH!

    Has anybody gone from having no bars to having one bar? Been stuck on 1 bar after being on “being processed” for 3 weeks! Stuck on 1 bar for 6 days now. Never seen this before! Anybody have any input?

    Guys I know it’s frustrat but please try not to do what I did in the past which was FREAK OUT & PANIC. I say this because of my experience with the WMR system. Last year I read one lady’s comment on the subject of status bars disappearing and her exact words were “Wheb the status bar disappears and you get code 152, it’s more then likely that your refund has been approved but has not yet been given a release date.” After reading her comment I sat back and just waited and to my surprise my refund was indeed processed, approved, and released after I freaked out trying to figure out why the WMR app displayed received and being processed then the status bar just completely disappeared with no updates for 31/2 weeks!!!
    The IRS is backed up because there are still thousands of refund audits that were not processed from the 20/7 tax season due to staff shortages and of course the shutdown didn’t help at all. The IRS is also starting to make people prove their identity a lot more due to all the tax fraud. I get why there’s a panic as this country is so unstable in many ways right now but most people that experienced the disappearance of the status bar is probably already approved but has not received a status update because the IRS is so backed up and trying to get caught up. If it takes too long please reach out to your tax advocate because they have the power to request a release date from the IRS and they only have so much time to respond with a ddd.. if it’s been longer then the 21 days stated on the WMR site/app call 800-829-1040 and choose option 5 then option 3 I believe. Just make sure you have time to hold.

    Good Luck Everyone

    My bar went missing last week also. Leaving a message of your return has been recieved and is processing. I too started to think something was wrong with my return. I started researching and came across info stating that the wmr page will not be updated until 2/23. Despite having no bar and no updates i was able to get a ddd by calling my bank. They told me that there is a deposit pending for 2/24. So my return has been fully processed with no wmr updates. At this rate i will probably recieve my return before the wmr page is updated. Now i can stop worrying that something is wrong with my return. Hope this information will help put everyone else at ease.

    I was a victim of identity theft last year. I received my pin late January and e-file on January 28th with turbo tax. It was accepted the same day. My WMR statues bar has been missing since FEB 15 with no topic just refund a mouth. It won’t be 21 days till Monday so I will be calling them. This is my first year filing with an IRS issue PIN because of my identity theft last year. Has anyone been A victim of identity theft them had issues with a return the fallowing year? Last year when I found out about my identity theft it was a horrible wait. I did not receive a refund check till September 2018. I hope this is not the case this time around since am giving birth in march and will be out on maternity leave with no pay :(. Can someone with similar situation please advice? I am really stress.

    Filed on 1/26 and accepted 1/28. Stayed on accepted until 2/10 then went to loss of all bars and still processing with refund date to be made available at a later time message and refund amount gone but Tax Topic 152 still there. My state refund was accepted the same day and their message is that my refund is not processing because they have no record of it. The loss of bars does mean your refund has been pulled for manual review for some reason and you may or may not be receiving a refund. The IRS states they will notify you in writing if this has happened, but they are not obligated to and many times will not do so. If they choose to notify you in writing, it may take up to 3-4 weeks to receive notification. In the event you have to provide them with some missing information, then you have approximately a 90-day wait as your refund will be re-sequenced. I tried to order my transcripts online and the message stated that information was incorrect so I tried to order through snail mail. I was told that could take up to 3-4 weeks to arrive. I called H&R Block for assistance this morning and was told no codes were showing and that I would receive my refund in 21 days per the information they had. Tomorrow is day 21 for filing and Monday will be the 21st day. I think they were way off base on that one. H & R Block told me to at least give the IRS until the end of February to come through and then just to wait it out or call them back because the IRS was having difficulty preparing the number of tax returns this year. Really? Undoubtedly they have not watched the news to see that refunds have decreased for this year. Inwas told that 21 days or even a few months was not at all too long to wait on my money. In the meantime, the IRS will not talk to me until Monday and then I will be lucky if I get a live person. I am sure I will get the same answer-wait it out. The problem I have is that I was red-flagged for some reason and I want to know why I am possibly having to wait until Christmas or not getting a refund this year. I have never waited more than 9 days from filing to having the money in my hands and this is ridiculous. I have no tax credits or deductions and my refund is relatively small. I deserve to know what is going on, and when the tax preparer I shelled out $200 to for tax preparation and the expensive Peace of Mind assistance could tell me nothing or provide some peace of mind, I realized that, according to the IRS, I deserved to know nothing or receive nothing and that my money was their money. So, my advice to many of you is to follow what a tax accountant has told recently: To avoid going though the angst and frustration of awaiting a tax refund which you may or not receive, adjust your withholdings and put that extra money in the bank every month. You will have more money and less stress and the IRS will not keep your money and draw the interest from it or decide that you do not receive your money. PS I am not putting down the IRS workers. They are just following protocol.

    Hello fellow Americans!

    As we all enter this new tax season, you will begin to see new things happening with the WMR Tool, Most of taxpayers will see a tax topic 152. which is the IRS informing everyone that the common refund will be return in within 21 days, with the exception of Americans that filed EITC and ACTC.

    When you file your taxes and it has been accepted by the IRS you will normally see the Status Bar informing you of where you are with your return, However based on experience, and I only can speak on my personal experience. When my status bar disappear. I do have the panic feeling, but yet an excited feeling, cause that lets me know that my 1040 EZ form is in the hands of a Human, and someone is personally working on my return. Now in this situation can go several ways, If the IRS sees and error on your return, they will either kick it, correct it or approve it.

    One year I experienced my status bars disappearing and had to personally go to the IRS and verify my Identity, and my refund was issued 24 hours after I verified my identity. Last year (2018) my bars disappeared for a week, and a re-appeared with a refund date.

    ONLY in my personal opinion I believe when the status bar goes missing, Refunds are about to be issued.

    I hope this is very helpful to everyone especially to the Tax payers with EITC and ACTC
    Good Luck, and happy Tax season

Went back to check the status and ALL my bars disappeared along with the amount with a message saying my refund is still being processed. I understand the mailing process takes more time but geeeezzzz I was really counting on this. Any advice other than a copy & paste off the IRS site? Thanks in advance.

    On 4/8/18 We filed married jointly on Turbo Tax. On 4/9/18 the IRS showed bars and that it was received. On Saturday 4/14/18, my bars disappeared and amount of refund disappeared too. Until, today 4/21/18 all my bars appeared and says it is approved with direct deposit date of 4/25/18. Looks like my bars only updated on Saturdays. My bars disapeared and it made me worry but it ended up being ok. We had W2, K1, home office credit, donation credit, mortgage, and student loans intrest. Thought that my name change had made the Irs flag it for review. All good.

    I am a tax professional, and I wanted to share some information about what missing WMR bars really mean…

    I e-filed 03/23/18. My tax return was accepted the same day. On 03/27/18, my WMR bars disappeared and so did my expected refund amount. All I had was a message that the IRS was still processing my return, and that a refund date would be provided. Very general. Very scary.

    When your WMR bar disappear, it means that your return has been flagged for review. IRS review involves a live, human being reviewing your return. Your return is pulled out of the electronic queue, and sent over to an IRS representative’s desk. Representatives process returns on a first come first serve basis.

    The disappearance of your WMR bars also means that the IRS can no longer guarantee issuing you a refund within their designated 21 days.

    Your return can be flagged for review for many reasons. It could be an error like a miscalculation. Incorrect reporting. Forgetting to report a 1099, spelling errors, the list goes on and on. But, your return could simply be pulled for review because your name changed, because you have a new dependent, because you are taking a deduction that you don’t normally take, because you are making more or less income than you have in years past, or for any legit reason. Just a change. The IRS also pulls a certain percentage of returns every year by law, just to help prevent identity theft and for their own statistical purposes.

    In 2018, even if your bar disappear and your return is flagged for review, if there are no errors, the IRS has been very good about still issuing you a refund for the full amount within the 21 days. The IRS will also sometimes go in and make the necessary corrections on your behalf.

    The where’s my refund page on the IRS website, or the app, will keep you informed as to what the IRS finds, changes they need to make, etc. If the IRS needs more information, they will most likely request it from you in writing.

    If you have not heard anything after 21 days from e-filing, you can contact the IRS directly for more information.

    That being said, I just received an update on Saturday that my refund is scheduled for the full amount. I went through a name change and had a baby in 2017. Though my WMR bars disappeared, and my return was flagged and pulled for manual review, I am still receiving my full refund within the promise to 21 days.

    So, it is not always bad news…

    There is a lot of misinformation out on the Internet. I hope that this clears things up for you!

    If you have questions, the IRS is a great resource and so are your local tax professionals…

MY ADVICE IS TO WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW IF YOU DONT UPDATE AND BY 2/20 IF IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN 21 DAYS THEN GIVE THH IRS A CALL. THAT IS WHAT I AM DOING. I NEVER RECVD PATH MESSAGE AND MY BAR HAVE BEEN GONE SINCE 1/27/18

RECIEVED my id verification letter in the mail today, got all of my questions right but when I made it to the end of my quiz it says I failed my quiz. So I had to send in id and other documents with my address on it. anyone else going through this problem? If so how many weeks did it take to release your refund. Last year I had to verify my identity over the phone. It only took it 5 days to receive my refund by direct deposit.

    Bars gone as of today, refund amount still shows on the actual IRS where’s my refund page (not the app) and tax topic 152 is still there. No EIC but ACTC. Freaking out over here as we were planning on using our refund for the downpayment of the house we’re trying to purchase.

    On the 24th my WMR changed to…
    Still being processed with tax topic 152 and its been that way since. I ordered transcripts on the 24th and when they arrived they said no information could be provided ( my husband has an ip pin and they wont provide information when ordered over automatic phone line or online. If they were blank from not being processed they would say no record found for the tax year ). So I called this morning and I told the lady the WMR was giving me a code 1541 and I needed to call( a lie). She did a soft security screening asking me about info on my 2016 return. Afterwards she looked into our return….came back and said disregard the WMR. She said she see that we have EIC credits and thats the only thing holding up our return..then she started talking about the path act. People have been saying the still being processed message with tax topic 152 also mean Id verify but my husband has a IP pin. She said we wont have to verify because we have a IP pin. She also said dont check the WMR again until after the 15th.

    I really believe that this lady was trying to help and she wasnt just telling me anything. She looked twice and said she don’t see any problems. I just thought I would share.

    So bars went missing and I have the path act message …. My question is I’m seeing some people that say their amount is still shown. Mine says tax period ending December 31,3018. Anyone else have this in place of their amount?

    My bars and amount have been gone since last week, I do still have tt15, I am hoping this is because I have EIC and ACTC. I’ve been googling everyday on what missing bars means from what I gather, I am thinking we will all see an update on 2/17 well at least I hope!

    Also, @ Ohiomom2018, I failed to mention that I filed with Turbo Tax this year! So far I am so glad I did! It was getting ridiculous paying those 100s of dollars every year to file taxes with h&r block. So hey, I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and check it all out. Turbo Tax really made the whole process simple, nothing like I thought it would be before ever filing.

    @ Ohiomom2018, in the past I have always had someone else do my taxes mostly h&r block for the past 5 or 6 years it least. This year I filed my own taxes on the 21st and accepted 22nd then I believe the 27th I updated on WMR to the path act and TT 152. I think they are just doing whatever they want to bc they know they can. I’ve been coming here for several years and just mostly read but from what I’m gathering according to other pathers and others, that once you update to the path act tt 152 and to check back mid to late February for updates for ddd ect it just simply means you have basically been approved and just waiting till the 14th (which is basically mid February) bc of new law and plus only having 28 days in this month. This Is no guarantee just from my gatherings and have interpreted so far. Hoping and praying we all have a safe tax season, good luck to everyone!

    So here comes a long post……….

    So this morning my bars and amount disappeared but I still had tax topic 152

    So me being worried I called I got a lady that says she checked my info and I was sent to the error department and to not worry it was minor but of course I worried like hell

    So about 6 hours later I called again explained what was going on she checked again and said I was not in the error department and everything was good it was processing wait the normal 21 days…

    So I gave her another try and called and got an IRS Agent that was a 31 year vet at the office I explained what happened when I spoke to the other 2 she went on to say she could get those girls fired because they are not allowed to look up info until the 21 days is up. Well earlier this year my daughter got RSV and died but they revived her by intibating her and I had to quit my business due to the long hospital visits and we got really far behind on our house and are going to loose it in March if we don’t come up with the money. She sympathized and told me I should try for a hardship so she got into my account but this time she asked questions from last years return very in depth questions I have never been asked and then put me on hold for 15 minutes. She came back and said I can’t do a hardship because my money was all federal and not what I earned and that it couldn’t be released until the end of February because of the path act and she also stated that the College credit was going to be delayed an extra week due to, to many people fraudulently filing it… but she continued to tell me that I did see an error this morning that was fixed and now I am back to processing and she absolutely sees no reason why I won’t get my money but if I don’t to call for a hardship and she put notes in the system. So if your bars do disappear amount or no amount the computer has flagged your account and rest assured something is happening sometimes it’s fixed in 10 minutes other times it takes 6 months. Hope this helps

    Miles….. just wait until the 2/18 or so and you will see what i mean. everyone went torought the same last year. we all will get a DDD around the 2/18 morning, some later some sooner but no one before the 2/15/2018.

    Getittogether it means that you been approved and you will get the bars back with a DDD around the 2/18/2018. the morning of 2/18 you should have the bars back saying you been approved with a DDD of 2/22 or 23. last year a new law came into effect where the irs cant give the money to people who claim credits until after the 2/15 every year starting last year 2017. im saying this because i remember what happened to me and other people last year. my neighbor and i do this every year and spend a month calling each other every day to figure out what is going on, he already have his bars missing but not me, i filed 2/1/2018 and got accepted 2/3/2018, im worried because i still have my bars and i know that as long as i have them bars is not approved, it will say on the WMR that it still being processed but in reality you are already approved if your bars go away. i will update when my bars are gone. dont panic guys because missing bars means that you been approved in most cases. they are working really hard to protect our money because there is a lot of illegal aliens trying to steal our money and papers. dont feel bad for illegals because most of them work with our papers and try to file at the end of year to steal our money, so the irs is trying to stop that. if it aint Cuban or Puerto Rican chances are its an illegal braking the law by being here illegally.

    I filed and was accepted on 1/29 with 1 bar. My bars disappeared on 2/3 with tax topic 152. I am a PA candidate because I claimed both EITC and ACTC on my return. Same married joint….. same children…… same employment with maybe a few hundred dollars difference in earned income. I think the bars disappear on a norm so I’m not worried.

    Last year the same thing happened, and everything was fine, so I can only assume that it will be the same this year. I only had one issue with my refund and that is when I had an issue with someone stealing my identity. Someone filed using my name and SSN. I had to ID verify, and contact the FTC, SSA, and the credit reporting agencies.

    While i am happy for the security measures taken, the wait is a bit overwhelming lol!

    Soooo I’d figured I’d call and wait on hold 30 min to make sure i didn’t have to “Id verify etc etc..” told the lady my amount disappeared & top of 152… she says “topic 1..what? And that’s weird I’ve NEVER heard of that” lol smh
    Then proceeded to tell me it’s “processing” and AFTER 21 days if I don’t have my refund to call back…But nothing appeared to be wrong. What a waste of 30 min.. lol. So for all thinking about calling… lol it’s pretty pointless 🤣 —- is it February 16th yet??!!

    When the bars go away it means that you have been approved and next time you see the bars again it will be when you have DDD. same thing happened last year to most people who had the child tax credit. if you have the child tax credit you wont see the bars again and a DDD until after the 2/15/2018. Last year i got my bars back and DDD on 2/18. bars missing is actually good news.

    From what I’m gathering.. it looks like when your bars disappear IF THE TAX TOPIC STAYS & refund date when avail is shown its simply on a freeze that when the date hits it’ll automatically go on…
    IF YOUR TOPIC DISAPPEARS TOO then it looks like it’s something else… like an ID verify etc..
