    Tried logging in to WMR and it stated it is temporarily down and to try later… Does that mean it is updating our DDD Updates ?

    Almost a day and a half the wmr website was down and still no update .what a shame


    @Shanni – I filed 1/25 still no update/blank transcripts except for 2-16-2015/ one bar on WMR and Tax Topic 152 as always


    I filed Jan.27th.Still have not received an update. Anyone else having this problem? ?


    Ellie, while I think WMR is a horrible, horrible thing (just the way it’s done, I don’t think it’s very reliable) but mine has always updated and then Refund Sent before I actually got the DD. That just further goes to prove my point at how horrible it is, when people say “mines stuck on 1 bar but my DD just hit today”. lol


    Ever since WMR was implemented I’ve never seen a ddd on it before getting my refund. It will update to return accepted, but that’s it. I can’t stand WMR. it’s totally useless. Transcripts have been more effective for taking my refund than that stupid thing.

    Has anyone RECEIVED their refund with wmr never updating for them?


    Juicee I am in the exact same boat. Not sure what is going on. I filed 1/12. Accepted early morning 1/13. Had one bar ever since. Wmr went down for me last night and just about an hour ago I was able to finally get in and my one bar is gone. Gives me the generic “we are still processing your return. We will give a date when available ” idk.


    Wmr was down since yesterday for me and now its up but the bar is gone and now it says your refund is still being processed a refund date will be provided when available….. what is that all about??????


    Accepted the 20th and no update for me. Still one bar and only account transcripts. I wonder if that 16th date means anything.


    No updates for me on WMR or on transcripts either. Still no bars, no amount, topic 152. Still only 0s on account transcript. I was really hoping for update with good news. Sigh


    No changes for me after system being shut down all day.. still 1 bar.


    Wmr is back up….no update for me filed 1/27 accepted 1/27. Education credits, 1 bar.


    WMR is still back up for me, it has been down all day. No update, one bar, code 152. Filed and accepted 1/24, I’m an 05’er. over $10k refund, account transcript has Feb. 16, all zero’s. Stinks! I filed a friend’s same day and she already has her refund!


    Back up for me too, but no change. Still at one bar. :(


    Wmr was down for me since 9pm central time last night. Just checked it and it’s back up and my bars are still there at approved with DDD of 2/3 as it was before it went down last night so I don’t know guys.just my situation


    WMR back change


    Back up for me, but no update. Bars still gone and still says being processed. No update to transcript either . 20150405 cycle code but no 846. Back to the drawing board.


    It was back up for my spouse about an hour ago after being down all day. It never went down for me. We filed joint. The transcript sign in was also down for my spouse. Kept saying wrong password. That is now working again as well.


    wmr down as of right now. should be up in 20 minutes


    @illybeans I’m not sure how much sense that makes. According to Turbotax, 50% of the people who filed with them and were accepted on the same day I was have already gotten their money. That’s a little more than a handful :p


    @jillybeans thanks so much for that I was getting worried and the horror stories you read about taking a year to get a refund and only getting a small portion of what you were expecting…. This makes me feel a lot better that processing is just beginning versus in limbo since the 20th


    WMR is down (most likely) due to heavy traffic overloading the server(s). Happens every year at the end of January. That is when the IRS selects handfuls of efiled returns to “test” on. That also explains why some that have filed later are getting their DDD sooner. It is like a lottery, if you will. No returns are processed prior to the first day, even though they can be filed before that.

    Only reason I know this is from working in a CPA firm for far too many years. Thank GOD I get to be a SAHM mom now and not deal with this crap on a daily basis :)

    Best of luck to everyone!


    sorry my last message was meant for @ tradami


    Aww please don’t take offense. I don’t mean to come off so frantic. lol. I do feel your pain. I went through it the year of the education credit debacle. So I know the deal of waiting and I’m not saying my plight is anywhere near those like you that have been waiting for three weeks. Still it’s just helpful to know if I’ve been approved. They can take their time sending the money, just let me know its gotten through and I can go about my business. To be honest that’s why I don’t usually file early because I noticed that early filers always get the shaft, and not in a good way. This year I waited five days after they started accepting returns to file even though I had my w2 since the first week in January. So I wasn’t rushing to the gates. But with all these other folks getting approved so fast after my filing date with no rhyme or reason I’m a very puzzled. If it wasn’t for that I would be like okay, just give it ten days as the pattern has gone before. I thought I had my ducks lined up, having my w2’s early for once and waiting a couple days. Most times I don’t file until early Feb or even March. I guess I was wrong and should have waited longer. Saved myself the agony.


    I’m super confused why WMR is working for some while others it’s “down”.



    Get in line, lol. Many of us have been waiting almost two weeks. I filed 1/8 and was accepted 1/12 in hopes I’d be processed in the first batch on the 20th….


    correction: * you don’t have to worry anymore about WMR. You have the money.


    @ straysoul congrats! At least you don’t have to worry anymore. The money that is. I just hope after WMR has been down all day I get some notice. I filed/accepted 1/25. Been a week and no updates. I’m going to cry!!


    don’t feed the troll guys :P


    Wmr still down however i spoke with emerald card customer service they recieved my refund on 1/30 and bc of fees and it will be availible tuesday 2/3


    It’s still down when I try to use my SSN but I can check my status if I use my wife’s SSN. We filed jointly. Strange. My status hasn’t changed. I still have no bars, I have my refund amount but what HAS changed is there is no topic anymore. See here:


    @Drea LMAO! You are so right!!!


    Where’s my refund website still down. Filed Janurary 20th got accepted but still no DDD yet


    WMR still down for me it is 1:53 est. Hopefully when it comes up ill have a ddd :)

    Filed : 1/27
    Accepted: 1/27
    WMR: 1 bar tax topic 152
    education credits

    Side note: all of you internet gangstas need to stop….you’re not even in the same state and in 1-2 weeks you wont be on this site anymore you’ll be out spending that money. Sooooo shut up!!! no one wants to read through your arguments that is not what I’m here for! lol


    WMR still down here at 1:42 eastern


    @igetit LMAO it had nothing to do with his statement and everything to do with the passive-aggressive way he acted toward me. You may choose not to see it, but it is quite clear that he felt he was right and that he was not going to allow himself to be corrected by me. He was being a pompous jerk and I called him out on it, and that is the bottom line.

    Discussion over.


    Filed and accepted 1/28, one bar WMR
    been trying to check since yesterday evening…still receiving “WMR currently unavailable please try again later message”


    @ Ugh..

    Fact is.. We all have the rt 2 our personal opinion. U started a debate w/every1 in this forum, becuz u had a “bias” opinion. But your NOT our: God, Judge, Professor, Mother/Father, etc. So y TRY n belittle any1’s character, just becuz u “disagreed” with STRAYSOUL statement?
    Are we all frustrated? Yes, that’s obvious. Is all the info we’re venting about 100% accurate? Maybe not.. Even if it’s 5% rt, we are just giving OUR “point of view.” U could have “avoided the debate” altogether n just kept it 2 yourself… I’m pretty sure over the yrs, YOUR advice and/or opinion has NOT always been 100% correct. Think about that, next time ur trying to correct another persons “contradiction.” But it’s no reason 2 step out of character n degrade some1. What did it really accomplish? Nothing!!

    Focus on the TRUE discussion here… “Wmr is still down n we’re ALL pissed about it”… Period!

    Ps.. U strike me as a person, that must have the LAST word. So by all means… Step bk up on YOUR “podium” 2 address our nation.

    @gingerie last year I got my DDD on a sunday morning, so it’s certainly possible.


    @Ugh ” straysoul

    ugh Everyone is entitled to there opinion and my opinion is it will be back up at 7 pm eastern . Could i be wrong sure its possible i could be wrong. I hope i am wrong keep us all updated” didn’t sound like that to me.


    Refund Trace is a totally and completely a seperate thing than wmr ppl!! Btw, wmr is working fine for me. For what it’s worth, in all my many years of filing, wmr has never updated any other time than between 3am and 6am on Sat and Wed mornings. Never ever! Not saying it hasnt for others, but has never changed for me.


    @straysoul Do not pray for me. I am an Atheist and do not need your ridiculous prayer. Thanks but no thanks. In the future, please realize that you come across as a passive aggressive, pompous jerk. Maybe you realize it, maybe you don’t, but the fact is that you are the cause of this argument because you couldn’t handle me correcting you like a mature adult.


    @Willbeas “verifying a direct deposit” refers to verifying that it was sent and received. For example, if your DDD was tomorrow and tomorrow comes but it is not there.. then they can verify the deposit having been sent. It has nothing to do with WMR.

    As for the other guy whining about my posts, deal with it.


    A refund trace is the name of the process used to track a stolen, lost, or misplaced refund check and replace an authorized refund to the taxpayer. Refund trace also includes initiating a forgery claim and verifying a direct deposit.

    @ugh..maybe you should have read this sentence at the end before making yourself look like the ass!! Ijs…dont shoot the messenger……”Refund trace also includes initiating a forgery claim and verifying a direct deposit.”


    For what it’s worth, WMR is working for me but not for my spouse – joint return. Both had DDD posted yesterday for 2/4. I can’t explain why and it doesn’t do any good to speculate.

    My 1/2 cent: a tracer, in a legal context, is a way of investigating what happened to something that left its expected path. A tracer in a refund context would then be to trace or to investigate what happens to a refund after it leaves the IRS. WMR generally just tracks the status of a return. Once a refund leaves the IRS, should someone fail to receive, the tracing process would being. The tracer feature of the WMR tracking app, presuming it has one because of the distinction in the down time, is down for a longer period of time than the return tracking feature.


    @ UGH…you get on here everyday and decide to be disrespectful. You are obviously not happy with life. You are a person who lashes out when you cannot have your way and that’s a sign of immaturity. Everybody has went through refund issues at some point in time and once you get yours I’m sure you will not care about anyone else. Don’t be a coward, be positive!


    @justme Hi! *waves* That’s the eternal question. No one knows? It’s all over the place. For instance I filed around 4pm on 1/25 and was accepted the same night. I have been stuck on one bar, with only my account transcript showing all 0’s but others that filed 1/26, 1/27 and 1/28 have either received their deposits or have a DDD. Then there are others who filed early in Jan as far back as the 16th and 21st and they are in the same position as me. It’s strange. I’ve heard some folks are being pulled for review and all other manners of things. But it’s all speculation until you personally get an update or the IRS sends a letter.


    Can anyone explain to me in layman’s terms why there is such a discrepancy between filers. I filed 1/17 accepted 1/20 and still didn’t have a DDD I see others are saying the same while people who filed later in the month have a DDD date within a couple days.
    The site and number have both been down for me since yesterday evening too


    i will pray for you


    I think we all need a laugh. A break. A distraction. Even though I realize it’s no laughing matter to some. They need their refunds. But getting mad at innocent people and being rude isn’t going to make the refund process faster and it’s not going to guarantee you get one at all. Get mad at the IRS for encouraging early filing which they know damn well does not work out “early” for the filers. But most important get mad at our Congress for cutting the IRS’s budget. They’re understaffed and can’t get things done quick.


    @waitinginwi oh, please.. This guy was being a pompous ass from the first moment I contradicted what he said. He just can’t handle being wrong and decided to be an asshole to me in a very passive-aggressive way. I’m surprised you don’t see that


    My bad, jackass*


    @Ugh no reason to call someone an asshole. He was just stating what’s on their page. Just because it doesn’t mention wmr doesn’t mean it’s not on the same schedule. About the only thing you really proved was how rude you can be and that refund trace is not wmr. That’s about it. You sure are an intelligent one.


    It has been down for me since a little bit before 11pm yesterday eastern time, almost 12 hours ive been waiting for an update!


    see you at 7 pm eastern will check wmr throughout the day


    @tradami Read that page you linked again. It says refund trace and change of address are unavailable from 12 AM to 7 PM on Sundays, NOT Where’s My Refund.


    @straysoul now suck on that, you god damn jackass. Refund trace and change of address =/= Where’s my refund

    ugh (11-02-2011)
    What is a Refund Trace?

    A refund trace is the name of the process used to track a stolen, lost, or misplaced refund check and replace an authorized refund to the taxpayer. Refund trace also includes initiating a forgery claim and verifying a direct deposit.

    Refund Trace Process

    The refund trace process is as follows:

    The taxpayer contacts the IRS and states his/her refund was received but then lost, stolen, destroyed, or states it was never received.

    If the taxpayer states he/she did not receive their refund and there is some indication identity theft may be involved, see IRM, Telephone Inquiries Regarding MXEN, MXSP, IDT1, IDS1, IDT3, IDT6, IDS6, IDT8, IDTS8, IDT9, IDS9, and Scrambled Cases, for additional information.


    @straysoul is correct.’s-My-Refund-Available%3F

    It won’t be available until 7PM EST.


    ugh Everyone is entitled to there opinion and my opinion is it will be back up at 7 pm eastern . Could i be wrong sure its possible i could be wrong. I hope i am wrong keep us all updated


    Basic question: It seems like some of us WMR is down while others are getting standard message. From past experience does this mean that those of us getting not available now we will see an update?

    Filed 1/22 and one bar with black account and wage transcripts only


    I’m in florida and wmr is also down. what is going on I wonder if the system crashed bcause so many people is checking?


    well ugh you find me a link to another tracer besides the amended status checker then i will otherwise they are both a refund tracer . now i am done checking for now but i am sure it will unlock at 7pm eastern update me when it unlocks


    WMR has been down for me all morning (and is still down) I live in Maine so…I am in the eastern time zone. No updates on SBBT as of yet…. looks like there will be no early deposit for me and I will indeed have to wait until 2/3 for my dd


    My roomate can check his but I get the WMR is down when trying to check mine. He filed on the 28th and I filed on the 22nd so I hope it is becauce mine is updating.
    We will see. I guess is anyone else having trouble?


    @straysoul it may be *a* refund tracer, but if they meant WMR, then they would have said WMR.. Simple concept, right? I’m sure you can wrap your head around it.


    Anyone get updates on transcripts last night? Or does WMR being down cause a delay in seeing updates to those as well?


    refund tracer really ugh
    a person or thing that traces something or by which something may be traced, in particular.

    So WMR is a refund tracer


    Amy I saw some people on facebook saying it’s not down for them. I’m not sure. I know it’s down for me and many other people.


    Well I have no clue , am I the only one its not down for ? I even cleared my browser data to make sure it was stuck there, and i can still sign in .. that seems strange lol


    @straysoul no, that’s the change of address and refund tracer that are down from 12 AM to 7 PM. Read the page again.. I’m not sure why WMR is still down, but it usually is not at this time on Sunday


    it literally will be down until 7 pm eastern time


    Sunday is the longest down time every year around 22 hrs


    Filed 1/27 approved 1/28 checked yesterday got a DDD date of 2/4 checked this morning says where’s my refylund is currently unavailable please try again later I wonder what’s going on
