    Hi Friday update time. No change to transcript date; May 31. I tried called the IRS to get a live agent, but each time got a response that lines are too busy, call back again, and a hang up. What’s the secret of getting a live agent?

    Belli,
    Don’t rely on that website for accuracy. Sons shows completed and IRS just told him on the 14th that it hasn’t even been processed yet and he was not the only one to have that information be incorrect. Just stay on them with phone calls. Only way to really know for sure.

    I filed an amended return as well and it was received on 7-29-2021. I don’t have them money yet but at least I am not in the dark and I am able to check that everyday. Plus I now know what the refunded amount should be. Really hoping to get it by the end of this month.

    Another Tuesday.. another week of no updates. From what I’ve seen, the IRS has stalled on the unemployment refunds.

    My husband and I filed jointly and we each received notices about CP21B noting the same amount. This is probably a dumb question, but are we each getting the amounts shown on our notices? Because he has received a payment of that amount plus interest via DD. I have yet to get anything, though he did mess up my bank account number on our tax return when we filed, so I had to await a paper check for my initial return.

    So I still haven’t seen no change but called after some one had put that they had called irs and was told they wasn’t getting one n when I called they told me my code was removed a week ago and the put back on just the other day and that I should see an update by October that no rounds of payments went out this month

    So if I made less than 10,200 but paid taxes I should get money back right? I got money from state so I’d assume I’d get it for federal

    Recently read an article saying it could be December before some of us get our return? Still May 31st last update. Single, 0 dependents, self-employment income and unemployment only. Getting desperate as the new job is only PT.

    There has been a slowdown because – as far as I can tell – there have been no deposits for unemployment since the end of August.

    Weekly Friday update. I’m noticing a slowdown on folks that post here, which makes me think people are getting their unemployment tax refund. Meanwhile, I still wait, with no change to my transcript since May 31. I guess it’s time to call the IRS.

    They told me that meant you were assigned to an agent but were still awaiting processing.

    I’ve been on hold for 2hours with 4different people at IRS today. First I was told no refund if you didn’t get over 10200 in unemployment then I was told you had to pay tax on it. Now I’m waiting on another person to explain to me why they took my unemployment off my income and I’m not getting refund. I’ve had code 290since August 30. You might want to call.

NO CONCRETE TF for the ref yet.

    For you in the same boat as my son: filed amended return. was adjusted on 7/30. completed on 8/20 based on the online “where’s my amended return” status inquiry. transcript 290 w/ 0.00 as of 8/23. filed an amended for something other than unemployment tx but when filed it incorporated it all at once. should get a ref 1,000+.

    Google IRS Transcript. It’s pretty straightforward from there. Post back if you have trouble.

    I am also single, no dependents and have not received my unemployment tax refunded. I thought they were supposed to do “simple” returns first? I regularly check my online irs transcript and the last entry made was to check for tax debt in June which was zero. I could really use that tax refund since Louisiana ended our unemployment benefits in July. I’ve applied at several places for employment and with rising covid cases I’m stuck!

    Still no update Single, no dep, Schedule C. And to make things better my bank closed the account it was supposed to go to. Ugh. May 31, 2021 date and no updates in codes since April. Any suggestions?

    I wish!!! I honestly think they Are taking a break from these type of refunds. There were weekly updates for some which killed some of the anxiety but now no one has had any updates in going on three weeks! Many are still just having the as of date flop around without any updated activity!!!

    About 3 weeks ago, I received my transcripts i requested in the mail. They stated date of 7/26 – 290 code with $0.00… has anyone with that same date for the 290 code received any updates or the 846 code? Anything? Single filer 1 Dependant.. I’ve been trying to be patient but I’m starting to get frustrated :(

    Weekly update number 3. Still no change to transcript. Last activity says May 31, 2021. MFJ; 0 dependents. I don’t understand what’s holding it back. Understaffing at IRS? Luck of the draw? They don’t like me? I’m noticing fewer posts on this board and less press about the unemployment benefit refunds and it’s really frustrating to know that if I had waited to file my return, this would have been moot!

    I have an 846 refund code for a date 08/20. I received the letter saying I was due a refund last week dated 8/30. It stated if I disagree to call a number but if I agree a check will be mailed 2 to 3 weeks after I received the letter. I’m still waiting on the check. It’s going to my old address even though I’ve amended my return and sent a change of address form. Have anyone received a refund date for 8/20 but haven’t received anything?

    MFJ no dependents, I was the only one in our HH with unemployment, still haven’t seen a change in our return other than a status 290 code dated for 8/30/2021. I just noticed my AGI is the 10,400 lower than what we filed for if I go to account transcript but I haven’t seen anything since then, been sitting on the 290 code for about 12 days.

    I’m beyond fed up. Filed and accepted 2/11. No dependents, no lookback, no unemployment, received all stimulus, no EIC, basic vanilla return. Transcripts show processed but no 846 and no holds, letters, no verification needed. Just sitting waiting for someone to issue a refund. This is insane!

    Had a update back in August for 8-30. No amount listed.

    Hoh. I dependent.

    I honestly can’t believe the IRS don’t give any glimmer of hope for anyone through media updates. But nothing.
    The advice to sit back and wait has gotten very frustrating especially for people who have been given refund dates, only to be let down even more.

    I am beyond frustrated. Summer is over. MFJ no dep. Both my husband and I were on unemployment last year. Our as of date has changed in transcripts several times. Last it was as of 8/30. Has a 290 no tax assessed with 0.00 as of 8/30 and now as of date says 9/13. No refund scheduled. Will I ever get our unemployment refund?!?!

    No info on my joint return, son who had a very simple one, nothing either. The IRS should have some dedicated employees to answer questions about the returns submitted before anyone knew about that $10,200 non taxable unemployment money(or $20,400). Folks need to know what is going on.

    My weekly Friday update. No change. Last date on transcript is May 31, 2021. Has the IRS announced another wave of refund checks? Are there parameters that certain returns are flagged and held? Repeating my info: MFJ, we owed money. Had one time K-1 income from an estate. Any information appreciated.

    If the date falls to Wednesday – direct deposit
    If the date falls to Friday – check would be mailed on that day.
    9/1 seems a Wednesday so that should be direct deposit

    I also am a single, no dependent tax return who owed taxes due to the unemployment and paid it too early. My transcripts say as of date of 05/31/2021 and no response yet. I called into the IRS and finally got a live body saying yes I am eligible but no date yet. No way to escalate it and no satisfaction. AHHHHHHHHHH

    Any other single filers still waiting for their unemployment tax refund? I’ve heard nothing and my transcripts have not been updated since 05/31/2021. My tax return could not have been any more simple. I’m wondering if there is anyone else in the same boat as me or if the IRS clearly forgot about me…

    If u got 290 code with $0. U waiting for 846 refund code, but if u view your transcript and check the 290 code for the stimulus checks , there probably was not an 846 code after it.

    I spoke too soon. Nothing in the mail for me today. Although, had to file an amendment due to something other than the unemployment for my son and that is finally “completed” so hopefully he will receive his check within these next few days.

    Still haven’t received RF! Requested new transcript via mail. Filed Jan. 29th HOH 2 DEPENDANTS. Received original RF March 1st. I’m constantly looking at my HR Emerald Card account for a deposit. Last transcript showed 290 code $0.00 AOD August 23rd. Praying that all who haven’t received it yet that we all get it before the month is over. I know that we all could use it desperately. Fingers crossed and I’ll continue to keep an eye out on this format for updates!

    Hey I have a refund date for today, no refund yet, does it come in at random times also I was reading that if you have a refund date on a Friday your getting a check mailed to you?

    If refund is issued on Friday it is always a check, usually takes 7 days from that day of refund issued. Some folks get it early, depends on usps. Watch out for it in your informed delivery.

    My weekly update. No change. Arghhh. Transcript still says May 31, 2021. MFJ; 0 dependents. I did have K-1 income from an estate if that matters. I had a balance due when I filed if that makes a difference as well. Hard to figure out what’s holding it back at this point. I guess I can look forward to all the interest added to the refund
