            I have used this number and the 652 extension before and it worked. Now it’s sending me to the amended returns line instead?

              I just tried calling myself and saying the call volume is high. It’s been over 3 weeks for me and the website is still saying a date will be available as soon as possible. This is crazy. I did my mom taxes on February 14 and she already has her back. I need my money to move out of a bad neighborhood.

                            Has anyone been able to speak to an employee at the IRS recently, like after they changed their answering to service to say they are “unable to provide live assistance”? I’ll call & wait, but I’d rather not be stuck in a hold loop that eventually disconnects. TIA!

                                    I called every number listed for the irs today and still there is no one there to answer. So is are government full of sh*t or what? Like man they take away refunds which for me is around $10k to give out stimulus checks of $2.2k like it just seems like they playing at this point.

                                    I want my money.

                                        I need to talk to someone about my refund. I been waiting since February and still no answer or letter. I’m out of work because of the covid19. And bills are still coming regardless of this damn covid19. I need to know what’s going on with my money ASAP. They need to have SOMEONE working in the office or by phone at IRS to answer our questions about our refund. This shit is crazy. I need help NOW…

                                            I mailed in my Injured Spouse form 8 weeks ago. I have heard NOTHING. I am eligible for all money. My hubby had an old college bill unpaid. The IRS website has not changed my info at all.

                                                Received a letter from the IRS stating they wanted me to verify my identity. Made several phone calls. No answer because no one is in the office at this time because of the COVID-19.If they don’t get my identity verified they said in the letter I may not get my income tax refund. So whats going to happen now? Am I or am I not, going to get my income tax refund. Not my fault.

                                                      I filed 2/10, accepted 2/10. Code 570 on transcript. No updates. No letter. No movement. No solution. I Feel like this is just a lost cause at this point. I’m so tired of looking everyday to only be let down. It really sucks that they can do this to us and we can’t do anything about it but wait on them. It’s bull. Sorry to everyone going through this. Do your best to stay positive.

I filed on 2/8/2020- accepted on 2/10/2020 The rep said return shows system error and is in suspense status for 13 more days. After this I should have an update. Rep said no letter or anything on my part that I need to do. Said that hopefully it will fix itself. This is beyond ridiculous. NEVER in my life have I had this happen. Good luck to everyone !

                                                                                          im facing the same thing. with my situation; there is a possibility that the employer may have only filed state and not federal.

He asked to give him until the end of the week to follow up with some. sort of answer and he would be in touch later in the week. I have left a few messages requesting an update, no response. Transcripts are still N/A , No letter or error codes provided. Should I push this issue to a supervisor or wait for a response from advocate?

I guess I was just supposed to know that I was under a review. My review will be over 45 days from March 23rd. I filed on 2/17 and accepted same day. Had being processed until 3/7 then bars disappeared and I got still processing on 3/7. I have both EITC AND CTC and College Credit.

I was told it is okay to amend your return while under review if W2s or whatever is missing. I was told a third party had been contacted to verify wages. I was told I cant get a tax advocate until 4 weeks from when the 4464C letter was sent. Then told 16weeks wait time for amendments….I’m pregnant with Lupus. I’m trusting in the Most High.

Spoke to a representative who had no clue as to what she was talking about, was pretty much reading a script and mentioned verification of tax credits and and can take up to 60 days. I’m not buying that BS. I will wait till Friday to see if I will get an update. I’m under 60 day review as well. Received a letter on 2/14.

I was able to get right through. However, I don’t think she pulled up my information and every question I asked was I don’t know. Then she proceeded with asking me why am I calling her with questions and I need to wait for my documents because they normally don’t do answer questions pertaining to tax refunds.
