Just a post for all of us who have/had/has to verify identity. So we all have kind of a time line of what may be to come!!!
March 10, 2020 at 10:38 am #4391468
Thank you much now have to wait 45days bs wish I would have know when I filed three weeks ago but ok. Thank tho 🤗🤗. I’m tried of this season frfr it’s ridiculousMarch 10, 2020 at 10:22 am #4391462
@madmama, the letter tells you pretty much everything you’ll need to respond to their query, but in sum:
Current return + support (i.e., W2s)
Prior year return + support
You’ll need to verify income & withholding as per the returns. You’ll also have to provide personal information that only you should know. I don’t know what all questions they ask — it may vary according to each individual’s life circumstances — but they’ll pertain to your SSN, your place of birth, your mother’s maiden name, your father’s full name, children’s names & SSNs, and so on.March 10, 2020 at 9:24 am #4391417
Hello all just got my 5071c letter yesterday what do they ask for when you verify trying to be prepared for anything. Thank youMarch 10, 2020 at 9:12 am #4391410
My story is just like @thicks but unfortunately I didn’t get no DDD yet!! So I’m assumning I might get a 4464c letter
I filed 2/4 Filed & accepted,
Did my verification 2/27
but letter was dated 2/24.
My status changed from ” Still being to Received your tax return and it is being processed. 3/2March 9, 2020 at 11:57 pm #4391286
I filed January 15th. E File approved around January 19th. 4883C came in the mail on February 10th. Called and Verified February 11th. Now it is March 10th and still says “Processing”March 9, 2020 at 9:06 pm #4391238
Yeah I’m extremely aggravated. As they should be able to tell by my tax info I’m a single mom of 3 and I don’t make very much, I don’t have time or money to take off work and waste a day going to verify in person. They didn’t even give me the chance to do it over the phone.March 9, 2020 at 3:48 pm #4391072
@Fhelton Like SERIOUSLY 😒…who in the IRS department has that much time to fine tooth comb every single return for a damn review…oh so now y’all MF’s just got time good luck with that ginnys of Uncle SamMarch 9, 2020 at 3:37 pm #4391067
I was told on April 20th(I called bc I filed 1/27 and had seen no updates) that I had to verify identity that they would send me a letter out. I finally received the letter 5071c along with another letter 4883c on Saturday. Called the number today 3/9 to verify and all they asked was my name address previous address SSN and then told me I had to drive 50miles to verify id in person bad thing is they couldn’t get me an appointment until April 3rd.March 9, 2020 at 3:23 pm #4391058
@Mimi Yeah I did and for ppl to be like oh ima file at the end of February to avoid the issue I’m like it doesn’t matter January and February are the worst months to file
@stillwaiting-2 I’m starting to see more and more ppl get the 4463c after they ID verify I’m like I’m over it at this point they can keep that shyt. I’ll just file exempt and spend wisely this year. F*ck they azzezMarch 9, 2020 at 3:16 pm #4391052
Guess what after verifying the 5071c letter i just got another one the 4464c saying under 60 day review isnt that lovely, just put my husband on hospice 2 weeks ago and have 2 kids and have only been able to work 1 day in past week Thank You IRS!March 9, 2020 at 3:10 pm #4391048
I don’t know how you got caught up in this mess because didn’t you file after the path lift? Smh. #irssuck2020March 9, 2020 at 9:34 am #4390866
@mimi ughh I just don’t have the energy like it’s soo much renege that it’s ridiculousMarch 9, 2020 at 9:27 am #4390861
@proudfatherof1… I know the letter was sent out when I called 3/2 not just because of the date on the letter but initially because how he asked for my address over the as if it didn’t transmit over. Then when I called back on 3/4 the lady said a letter was sent out on 2/27 which means they back dating and all kinds of stuff. SmhMarch 9, 2020 at 9:25 am #4390860
Hell im still waiting on my letter and transcripts. Tried checking informed delivery with Usps but the app stated they couldn’t upload the images of what’s coming in the mail smh. I assume 1 out the 5 pieces of mail will be from IRS and I hope so so I can get this ID verify behind meMarch 9, 2020 at 9:16 am #4390853
Back with a slight update… Finally got the ID verify letter on Saturday verified this morning. I filed 1/21 accepted 1/22 got advance with TT. Called IRS 3/2 was told letter sent out got it 3/7. So lets see the turn around for a DDD. Never again TT for advance nor will I file b4 2/15.March 9, 2020 at 9:06 am #4390843
UPDATE: I just got off the phone with the IRS and im verified now, the lady I spoke to was very nice. She said could take up to 6-9 weeks before I get my refund but they tell everyone that so I guess it’s just a waiting game at this point. I’m just hoping that was the ONLY issue with my refund. I’m assuming if there was another issue I would of gotten another letter by now but I haven’t. I’ll continue to update my progress when something changes …March 9, 2020 at 7:38 am #4390796
Filed/accepted 1/28. Irs claimed letter was sent 2/20. Received said letter 2/29 dated 2/26. Verified over the phone 3/2 and I’m still waiting for an update smh. Wmr says still processing. A date will be provided when available. Smh I’m tired of waiting.March 9, 2020 at 7:37 am #4390795
Filed/accepted 1/28. Irs claimed letter was sent 2/20. Received said letter 2/29 dated 2/26. Verified over the phone 3/2 and I’m still waiting for an update smh. Wmr says still processing. A refund date will be provided when available. This is crazy. My kids and I really need our money.March 9, 2020 at 2:24 am #4390764
Damn sorry to hear that. I feel kinda guilty being impatient since i verified 3/2. My ssa wages have been updated but transcripts & wmr are exactly like yours. Hope u get that ddd update this Saturday.March 8, 2020 at 10:01 pm #4390727
The 5071C comes when they suspect the filer’s identity may have been compromised. The 4883C requests additional information. I don’t know why you may have gotten both, but I imagine if you call to satisfy the 4883c, it will also resolve the 5071c. Have available the information both letters request.March 8, 2020 at 9:12 pm #4390719
What is the difference between the 5071c and the 4883c letters? I received both of them yesterday and they are both stating I need to verify identity.March 8, 2020 at 8:48 pm #4390716
Ive been waiting almost 3 weeks i did mine by phone on 2/18, filed 1/18 accepted 1/27. Tuesday will be 3 weeks, transcripts are na cant check online only by mail, ssa nothing some people got it a week later i have notMarch 8, 2020 at 8:43 pm #4390712
Anyone else id verify and still waiting for ddd? I know they say wait 9 weeks, but Ive noticed no1 actually waits that long. I read somewhere on here it takes about 10-18 days after idv to get a ddd.
Im getting impatient!!!!March 8, 2020 at 7:20 pm #4390681
Thanks!!March 8, 2020 at 7:00 pm #4390671
Social security administration is who your employer report your wages tooMarch 8, 2020 at 6:48 pm #4390665
I’ve just saw a few people say they’ve checked their SSA and didn’t quite really understood what it meant!!!March 8, 2020 at 6:39 pm #4390662
Could anyone answer: what does it mean when you’re checking your SSA?March 8, 2020 at 5:53 pm #4390652
@tbimommy, I’m in the same boat regarding viewing my transcripts — until I get my PIN in the mail to complete my online account.
Presuming you’re weekly, the next time you could see an update on WMR is 3/14.March 8, 2020 at 5:48 pm #4390646March 8, 2020 at 5:40 pm #4390643
@tbimommy, TC 971 is “Miscellaneous Transaction.” It often indicates correspondence.
As for whether you cycle weekly or daily, you have to look at the cycle code on your transcripts. If the last two digits are 01, 02, 03, or 04, you’re daily. If they’re 05, you could be weekly or daily (but probably most likely weekly). It seems everyone who claimed credits regulated by PATH are weekly.March 8, 2020 at 5:29 pm #4390641March 8, 2020 at 5:18 pm #4390636March 8, 2020 at 5:07 pm #4390634
@tbimommy, I’m not really sure, but based on what I’ve been reading in this forum, it appears that the IRS’s system flags things for action on one day but the system doesn’t generate the letter until a future time.
When I can access my account transcripts, I look forward to seeing what the processing unit did when handling my return. I filed 2/4, but the date on my 5071C was 2/24 (and I received it 2/27, so it seems unlikely they sent it any sooner than that). I’m hoping the transaction codes will give me a clue what was going on.
Maybe the system flagged you for IDV on 2/13 and 2/28 was too late to stop the (971) process.March 8, 2020 at 4:41 pm #4390631
But it’s dated three days after I verified that’s what is confusing me. I verified 2/28 and the letter is dated 3/2 and they told me they sent it on 2/13March 8, 2020 at 4:36 pm #4390629
@tbimommy, I see. Well, the right hand of our government doesn’t often know what the left hand of the government is doing! Maybe the letter they sent you was planned before you IDVed. In the vast majority of cases, there’s no nine-week wait. Heck, part of that is three days for you to receive the letter and 30 days for you to respond!
You should get a DDD of 3/18, if not sooner, Shelby.March 8, 2020 at 4:30 pm #4390627
I verified at my local IRS office with a Agent. Like in person in a cubicle. I went in and had a 4:30 appointment with them and the man who saw me verified me with my I.d car registration and I brought him my lease and last year’s and this year’s return. He verified me. I’ve called and they said I was verified and had to wait 9 weeksMarch 8, 2020 at 3:45 pm #4390614
Shelby (@tbimommy), did you verify online or by phone? If online, did you see anything informing you that you passed? If you didn’t pass, I would have to think that the IRS would, in fact, send another letter.
To anyone, if you get any answer wrong when IDV by phone, does the IVO rep tell you that you got something wrong?March 8, 2020 at 1:41 pm #4390591
I verified my identity February 28th and received an identity verification letter yesterday March 7th to verify my identity and it was dated for March 2 ? Does that mean I need to verify my identity again ?March 8, 2020 at 11:17 am #4390548
I have had: we have received your tax return and it is being processed since February 16. I’m getting frustrated.March 8, 2020 at 11:07 am #4390544
Hopefully we are getting a DDD next Saturday 3/14/20…did your status on WMR update to “we have received your tax return and it is being processed” from reading others status we are going to be in the next batch…fingers crossed and have faith!!!March 8, 2020 at 9:11 am #4390517
Filed/accepted 1/28. Irs claimed letter was sent 2/20. Received said letter 2/29 dated 2/26. Verified over the phone 3/2 and I’m still waiting. I should’ve just went into the office or something, because it seems a lot of those ppl that verified same day I did but in an office, are about to get their money soon. This sucks. Like everyone else, my kids and I need our money. Life is a struggle at the moment and becoming very stressful.March 8, 2020 at 8:20 am #4390510
So. I filed on 1/27/20. Received a letter to identify myself on 2/15/20. Had to make an appointment to go to the local office to do id verification. That appointment was on Monday 3/2/20. WMR updated on Saturday 3/7/20 with a DD date of 3/11/20March 8, 2020 at 6:08 am #4390500
@Mimi That’s a hawt mess. So that means when you call basically that’s when they decide to send out a letter. That’s a lot of hocus-pocusMarch 8, 2020 at 5:53 am #4390498
I don’t think they sent the letters at all because when I called 3/4 the lady said the letter was sent 2/27 but remember I conveyed they asked for the address like it didn’t come over on 3/2. My letter was dated for 3/2March 8, 2020 at 3:26 am #4390481
@Mimi I filed and accepted exactly a month after you 2/21 and I called Friday and told me a letter was sent out. After looking at your dates it better not take a month to send a damn letter especially from what I heard those letters come from Austin TX and I’m just 8 hrs away in OklahomaMarch 8, 2020 at 3:21 am #4390480
Filing in January and getting an advance thru TT is what got me pulled for ID verify. Next year no TT BC I don’t like how there isn’t any support regarding these issues and never before 2/15 and no more advancesMarch 8, 2020 at 3:19 am #4390479
Filed 1/21 accept 1/22 advance and pather Called 3,2 asked for me to verify current address as if they did not have it. Letter would take up to 10 business days to get. Called back 3/4 to make sure it was sent. They told me the letter was sent 2/27…? Got the letter yesterday dated 3/2…? So all this stuff just random. Will verify today by phone NOT ONLINE..TAKE LONGER! will update with the specs..right now still being processedMarch 7, 2020 at 11:44 pm #4390462
@netherdragon Me as well!!! Keep us updated on your processMarch 7, 2020 at 11:06 pm #4390458

Which letter did you get if its 5071c thats all you need if its the other one im not sureMarch 7, 2020 at 7:09 pm #4390384
Just got my letter to ID verify today, since I can’t do it online ill have to call and get it done monday. Can somebody tell me what they needed to verify over the phone, I know you need current and previous year tax return but was there anything else that’s required? Please respondMarch 7, 2020 at 7:04 pm #4390382
Erin (@scuffysd11), you filed about a week before me (did you have a freeze for PATH credits?) but apparently got your IDV notice a week after me. I wasn’t happy that it took them 20 days to quiz me about my ID, but it was about two weeks longer for you! That’s a shame! And it seems people who filed after I did got their IDV notices before I did and got DDDs a week before mine (3/11). Apparently the IRS processes from the top of the stack — last in, first out.
If you claim any PATH credits, it’s in your best interest to file AFTER the freeze is lifted for speedier processing!March 7, 2020 at 6:41 pm #4390378
Id verified 3/2
Wmr updated to being processed 3/4
No ddd for me yet
I never waited this long! Always got my $ by late February!
Im blaming Mercury retrograde for most if February til early March.March 7, 2020 at 2:02 pm #4390261
Today I got notice on WMR that my refund has been approved. My DDD is 3/11/2020.
Maybe they query the returns (do the processing) on Wednesdays or before lunch on Thursdays? I’m just guessing. 2/27 was a Thursday, but I didn’t get in the 2/29 update, but I think I read on here that someone IDV on 2/24 (a Monday) and their transcripts updated on 2/28 for a DDD of 3/4.March 7, 2020 at 12:16 pm #4390222
@proudfatherof1 It took awhile. They claimed the letter we t out on the 13th. After two weeks passed and I got nothing, they mailed a letter out on the 28 and I got it on the 3/2March 7, 2020 at 12:06 pm #4390217
IDVerify letter 2/28
WMR updated to being processed 3/5
Soooo….hopefully WMR updates next Saturday for me…will keep you updated!!!March 7, 2020 at 11:12 am #4390187
Filed and accepted 2/7
Verified Id 2/29
Status went from still being processed to being processed 2 days ago on wmr. Should I be expecting a ddd soon?March 7, 2020 at 6:53 am #4390024
@FrustratedInNM Well I did jump in head to find out what my situation was before my 21 days was up next week. I called and spoke to a rep and she stated that I needed to ID verify. You’ll have to wait for that letter because it has a certain code that you’ll have to provide along with other prior year return info. But only way you’ll know what it actually is that’s holding your return is by calling the irs and speak with a rep.March 7, 2020 at 6:43 am #4390021
Thinking of just verifying ID online, or are there certain numbers/codes etc on the Letter they send as sort of a password/PIN to get into the verify ID online sort of thing?
Asking because it seems like everyone in my situation is getting letters eventually to ID verify and if I can jump ahead of the letter, maybe i can get my Refund quicker, because waiting almost 2 months now is ridiculousMarch 7, 2020 at 6:02 am #4390008
@Missy how long after you filed did it take for you to get your ID letter in the mail?March 7, 2020 at 6:01 am #4390007
Nothing on wmr for me going on 3 weeks since verifiedMarch 7, 2020 at 5:57 am #4390006
@starks Thank you for the info. I verified over the phone do you think it’s still ten days?March 7, 2020 at 1:03 am #4389962
I verify my id like 6 days ago
My wmr when from still processing to being proccesed is that goodMarch 7, 2020 at 12:57 am #4389961
@Ron So it comes from Austin TX, that’s wuzup I’m in OKC so it should be here at least by next week. Speaking of Dallas I was just down there couple weekends ago. I actually love it down thereMarch 7, 2020 at 12:55 am #4389960
I verify my id like 6 days ago
My wmr when from still processing to being proccesed is that goodMarch 6, 2020 at 10:45 pm #4389901
@missy i doubt you will see anything tomorrow, I see pattern with people who verified online. Looks it it takes around 10 days to process after verification.March 6, 2020 at 10:36 pm #4389897
I had my id verified on Monday. Still on Still being processed. Filed on 1/27. Got a letter they issued on 2/28 on Monday. Verified the same day. I hoping to see a DDD tomorrow but feel discouraged that it hasn’t changed to just ‘being processed’ Will contact a TA on Monday if no change. I wish the rest of you good luck.March 6, 2020 at 9:14 pm #4389858
@ProudFatherOF1- mine was sent from Austin on 2/21. I received it on 2/24. Verified online the next day. I live in Dallas.March 6, 2020 at 6:36 pm #4389797
@Ron yeah I just was told I had one coming in the mail. How long did it take for yours to get sent to youMarch 6, 2020 at 6:28 pm #4389793
Update!! ID verified on 2/25 online. Called IRS on 3/2 to confirm. They told me the return was being processed and it can be up to 9 weeks. Transcript updated today with a DDD of 3/11. Good luck to everyone.March 6, 2020 at 6:10 pm #4389790
@thicks lmao, I mean 3-11-2020😂🤣March 6, 2020 at 5:34 pm #4389783
@stillwaiting-2 bet that thanks for the info. I just don’t like being left in the unknown especially being a weekly update so I’ll keep a watch on informed delivery. Appreciate the info
@thicks Okay appreciate that info. I’ll keep a look out for this letter and definitely will be verifying by phone. Can’t trust doing anything online nowadaysMarch 6, 2020 at 4:45 pm #4389765
After i id verified it went back to being processed instead of still being 2 days later hasnt changed on mine since and that was 2/18 , and ive seen on here people id verify and have there money a week later seems there is no right answer to the question of how long after id verify
