    Did you get your transcript with 846 yet?

    My transcript shows today code 846 with refund date of 4/13. My transaction code is 20200705. I received a 60 day notice early March. With help of a tax advocate, we found out one of my W2s wasn’t showing and I got that remedied. Today my transcript updated.

    Curious if I should expect the refund 4/13 or if it might come sooner.

    Still Processing WMR (NO BARS) 02/15-21/2019
    Transcript Updated Code 846 refund issued 2/27/19 DDD

    I have a (debt) listed on the IRS offset hotline from dept of education for a defaulted student loan. It’s not showing on transcript. Will I receive my refund or can it still be intercepted. My WMR will possibly update on tomorrow morning. I’m praying not offset notice pops up * fingers crossed*

    #4295116 Reply

    The IRS is updating the WMR twice a week, I have clients who status has been update on both Fridays and Saturdays in the same week. I had 3 clients taxes processed within the past two weeks who were all approved today and status updated. I had two clients who were also done with the past 3 weeks who status was updates on Saturday of that same week. I also have my personal return no bars but script says refund issued 022719. I will be checking tomorrow. I suggest check tomorrow as well.

    the pattern I see is if your approved and bar updated on Friday you can expect a Monday deposit, if you update and bars show approved on Saturday you an expect a Wednesday deposit.

    i hope this helps someone!!!

    Hey, just checked my tax account transcripts, they are adjusting my return, it seems, but not much of a huge difference, but I don’t see the 846 code yet, but my bars just disappeared today. Do they update the returns frequently? Should I check again next week (transcripts)

    #4273753 Reply

    I just got my 846 code today with 2/22/2019 date. Wmr shows no more path msg and a generic ‘we are processing your return ‘ message. So it’s moving along now and will see what happens next week.

    I got my transcript today. Everything on it is post dated…
    filed dated of 4/9/18
    Credit dates of 4/15/18
    846 date of 3/28/18

    I filed and was accepted 3/5/18

    Are the other dates always post dated? Should I expect my refund in April, or maybe sooner?

    2018 tax season

    just wanted to share some info I got from my TA

    ive been a long time creeper on her and I, like everyone else have been grabbing at straws to figure out what was actually going on

    1. if you did DD, your deposit will be on a wednesday
    2. if you did a paper check, your deposit will be on a friday
    3. updates happen on thursday nights

    I really hope that helps!

    Filed 2/28, but wasn’t accepted until 3/1 as per my tax preparer. I called irs today and they state they started processing on 3/8…when would transcripts be available? Thanks for your help in advance.

    #4240884 Reply

    Ok, little help here.It looks like they screwed up in auditing my return and issued me two refunds as I have two 846 codes. No direct deposit in my account this morning either. Thoughts form the group on when I should expect a refund?

    Submitted 1/29. Accepted 1/30. Stayed that way for about 3 weeks (bars disappeared and “we’re still processing your return showed up) then i got a letter to send in form 1095 & 8962. Sent it in 2days later (2/26). They confirmed receipt about a week later. Then no movement until yesterday (3/17) when my bars reappeared, showing approved and that i should have refund no later than 3/26 & notifying me that they changed my refund amount. Transcript is available and shows refund date of 3/21. Keep hope alive everyone! There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Transcripts finally available today! Filed 1/22, accepted 1/23. had to fax in form 8692 on Feb.28th, WMR updated this morning with two bars and refund date March 21st. Good luck everyone

    #4239904 Reply

    I filed on 1/30 with TurboTax and have not seen a substantial wmr update since. Received 4464c letter on 3/12. So, who knows this year? Waiting seems to be the best and only option.

    #4239888 Reply

    When is the next big update for wmr? Is it this Saturday? I filed 2/28/18 and don’t see any updates as of yet.

    Filed and accepted by IRS on 3/2. 846 Refund Issued updated on Account Transcript on 3/12/18 (with refund issued date of 3/16). WMR updated on 3/14 with Refund Approved and DDD of 3/16.

    #4239520 Reply

    I am beyond irritated at this point. I filed and was accepted on 1/31 with EIC and ACTC. It’s March 14th and I have yet to receive my refund. WMR has said “take action” 1541 since the first week of February. Ordered transcripts. Last code says 570 Feb. 26th. Cycle 0605. I’ve called the IRS twice and twice I’ve been told that they need nothing from me. Just wait. Well I am sick of waiting. I’m relying on this money and can’t use a TA. I just don’t get how I’ve seen people who’ve filed LONG after me who’ve already received their refunds. I’ve NEVER waited this long for my refund before and I’m getting sick of being told that the IRS needs nothing from me. Then what’s with the delay!!

    @nanna ,, I filed head of household my older son lives with me . So would I click on somethkng other then head of household ????

    #4238863 Reply

    I filed my taxes on 1/22. They were accepted according to TT on 1/29. i received my state back the 1st week in Feb. I have not received my federal as of yet. I checked my transcripts today and the acceptance date on them states 2/26. That’s a whole month after TT states they were accepted. My cycle is 20180605 and I still have a 570 code on my transcripts with a 3/12 date beside it. I received a 4463c letter issued on 3/2 stating not to do anything but wait. I called on Friday and the irs rep told me the same thing. They are processing and it’s happened to a lot of people…I just have to wait. I did claim EIC and the child credit, so I know they weren’t processing those until after 2/15. This has been a month almost since then and I still do not have any updates.

    #4230963 Reply

    My return was accepted on 2/1 and cycle is 20180605 and processing date of 2/26/18. So far nothing has changed on my transcript at all. My last code is still at 786. Of course WMR is also saying it is still processing. Anyone have a clue as to why nothing has changed in two weeks?

    #4229652 Reply

    Transcript has codes 150, n/a (with a group of numbers next to it) 806,766,768, & 570

    Can someone please help me understand?

    Also return due date or return received date says 4/15/18 & processing date says 3/5/18 What are these dates for?

    Well, I feel like I am losing hope, lol. Filed federal 1/21 accepted 1/22, state filed same day and got accepted 1/29. State has been under review forever!!! It is a significant amount(why I don’t know). Can’t check transcripts and I have the message they are still processing my return for federal.(no bars) I did file for Eitc credit. Any insight would be great. More worried about state being under review. I called on the phone and automated system said they were still processing.

    #4221128 Reply

    Hi all this is my first time ever posting. I filed 1/29 got accepted the same day. Got to one bar then it disappeared. Mind you it’s been 19 days now I got the path message a couple of days later. Stayed on there for about another week. Now it’s saying it’s processing. Got my transcript. It gave me a date of 2/22 I got the code of 846. So crossing my fingers for you all. Good luck and God bless.

    #4220727 Reply


    Your Deposit Date will be on he same line as your 846 code, third column over.

    #4220638 Reply


    thank you so very much, you have actually made me feel way better about all of this. wow tax time is so strssful lol Thank you very much again.

    #4220630 Reply

    Absolutely! Don’t stress, there are lots of posters and people on multiple forums whose PATH act messages updated to the “…processing…” on WMR, just like yours. Me included. 😀
    A lot of those same people ARE able to view transcripts online, and are seeing code 846 updates. Many of them have a deposit date of 02/22, but not all.

    What you should take away from that is that the “processing” message on WMR is not a bad thing!

    #4220617 Reply


    thank you so much. I don’t have none of them. are the people whose got it updated on their transcripts wheres my refund still showing their refund is being processed??

    Mine lost the path act thing and says ” your refund is being processed” or whatever. I can not get my transcripts because no loan or credit card. so I am just wondering if the people whose transcripts say that if their wheres my refund has changed as well.

    #4220591 Reply


    Go to (the IRS website for Get Forms)

    You can get various Form 1040-series transcript types online or by mail. If you need your prior year Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) to e-file, choose the tax return transcript type when making your request. If you only need to find out how much you owe or verify payments you made within the last 18 months, you can view your tax account.

    To view online, though, you need to have a current or recent credit card, loan, or mortgage to verify your identity.

    How do I check my transcripts I do not see a button for that??

    #4220566 Reply

    I usually just look on here and read and get a kick out of reading these each year. And usually only make a comment when I have something share. I looked at the account transcript this morning and I have the code of 846 Refund issued 2/22/18 my cycle code is 20180605 if that helps anyone out. I lost the path message and topic code and went to generic message. I truly hope that everyone gets there money sooner rather than later and don’t spend it all in one day. Have a blessed Tax season!

    #4220547 Reply

    I have 846 this morning with cycle code of 20180705 and next to it a date of 3-5-18. Is this my DDD date?

    #4220526 Reply

    For those who have waited on the dreaded PATH message, I am seeing a lot of 846 codes with correlating DD dates of 02/22/18.

    Do you all suppose that will be the actual date of deposit to bank accounts? Or is there someone with plenty of experience with these 846 dates that can say whether they are exact or not?

    #4220517 Reply

    If I got 846 today with a date of 02/22- is 02/22 the date that it should be in my bank account?
