    So I finally got a refund issued date of today so does that mean my check was mailed today be dealing with this since filled Feb 9th.

  • bkstx posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 18 hours ago

    Transcript Update. Checked today and finally updated to 846 code. Check should be mailed 07/26 with interest, hoping to have the check by the end of this month. Finally, it seems like this is almost over! the 28th will be 4 months since they received our IS.

  • MrsAllen posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 20 hours ago

    Just checked my transcripts and they finally have updated since March 26 2019.
    766 removed refund applied to non-IRS debt and
    290 additional tax assessed 20192905 08/05/2019 $0.00
    Does anyone know what this means or how much longer before they are finished?

    • If yours follows what mine did, you should see your 846 update next Friday and have a check mail date the following Friday.
      So like 2 weeks from your 290 code. Fingers crossed for you.

    • @Mrs Allen, meaning 2 weeks from when your 290 code updated, not the date it shows on the 290 code. I would think your mail date would be 08/02 bc your cycle code is 1 week after mine…. but that’s just my guess.

    • Thank You BKSTX I appreciate the info. I wasn’t sure what to look for. I’ve waited this long I guess a little longer isn’t going to hurt :) At least it seems to be coming to an end! Prayers that you are right!

    • You’re welcome MrsAllen. Hope you get it soon. And yes, finally nice to have some kind of end in sight!

    Just curious. After getting ahold of a tax advocate how long did it take everyone to receive their taxes. Our cars are close to repo status and my electric is in disconnect status. I’m at my wits end here :(

    • Im on my 2nd 30 day referral and I understand completely what you mean. This is absolutely ridiculous

    • We went through 2 30 day referrals also and finally at the end of this second one it looks like they are doing something. Transcripts didn’t update since the injured spouse form was received March 26th and finally updated with codes 766 and 290 today so it’s still a waiting game :(

    • I finally got answers today!! After 17 weeks. I have found out that the IRS randomly selects accounts to check for fraud. Be sure you haven’t tried to fraud them. I had a guy actually take my number yesterday. Do research. And he actually called me back with everything he could find. Nothing you can do to push this process either. Has to go t…[Read more]

    Hi everyone! I have been going through the forum for hrs now. Just reading to find a similar situation. I efiled and didn’t know about my offset. IS form received 3/21. Taxes received 3/25. Taxes applied to DofEd 3/25. Next update was that I received 2 credits. 766 and 806 on 4/15. Transcript has not been updated since then. My WMR has never u…[Read more]

  • bkstx posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 17 hours ago

    @Shyla King, I can’t reply on your comment for some reason but If you are going on to the irs account login site and going to the part for transcript, I use the bottom left one to check mine, account transcript. Mine did not update forever. After I called on 7/5 and was told my case closed on 06/24, then it took almost 3 weeks to update my…[Read more]

    • I’ll try but I go to is that the same thing? And nothing has been updated since March :( so sorry to hear about yours also.

    • I just checked again and all the same
      I’m going crazy and they said have to give them another 30 days and cant call before july 31st

    • I don’t have the same codes as you do on my transcript. Did you file an injured spouse form 8379? This would be used if say your husband/wife had a debt to the irs, student loans or child support and they took the total amount of refund to pay for that. Then you, the injured spouse, would file this form to get half or all of that refund back if…[Read more]

    • I filed the injured spouse for when I filed for my taxes and married filing jointly. Everything was all done at once because my husband owes back childsupport but the whole taxes were my income so [email protected] block did it all that day?

    • Okay, yes that is usually how we do too…. same situation. the lady who does our taxes sent it in with the tax return electronically but they say they didn’t receive it? So we mailed form in separately, the 971 code is when they received it. Nothing changed on mine at all until the 290 code last Friday. Has the irs confirmed with you that…[Read more]

    • Also, I get our transcripts online through the IRS website. You have to create an account, about a 10-15 minute process.

    • @bkstx I just called them once again and talked to tax advocate and she said they already sent over the 30 day referral so they are unable too see exactly but they can see they received the IS form and it came in with my tax forms so to call back the 25th and hopefully something has changed. This is so frustrating and upsetting.

    • I completely get your Frustration. It will be 4 months after receiving my IS form until receiving the check. I hope you hear something soon bc two 30 day referrals has got to be so upsetting. One good thing for you is that you should get DD since form was filed with your taxes, which would mean almost a week earlier than waiting on the check…[Read more]

  • Anna posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 17 hours ago

    13 weeks after filing IS with return, called today and was told the IS department is running a few weeks behind, but that he’s attached the 30 day memo and we should have it before 8/16.

    Not holding my breath, but fingers crossed….

  • bkstx posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 18 hours ago

    Like many others, I have been following and reading this group for the last month since I found it. It has been so helpful, I learned so much more through reading all of your stories than any IRS rep had to offer. Our tax lady filed our IS with the return but I figured out they did not receive it or either they lost it bc the refund processed…[Read more]

    • Transcript info

    • Can someone please explain to me how to check my transcripts or where to go? I have gone to the transcript records and checked all four categories they offer and nothing has been changed or updated since march when they received my refund? I have no codes or anything? I’m so confused please help

  • MommaSandman posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 5 days, 18 hours ago

    Called today and told that I was past the timeframe of when I should have received my refund (last week.) The gentleman stated he was putting in a note and the 30 day referral. He said “The note basically alerts the department that there is a case that is past due, and to work it. The 30 day referral is a “worst case scenario” situation, and you…[Read more]

  • Timothy posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 2 days ago

    Okay so now I’m told a manager needs to sign off on the injured spouse form so a check can be released. Can anyone share once they were told the check has been issued how long they had to wait to receive it?

    • once the case is closed can take 4 weeks for them to put in the date of when the check will be printed and mailed to you.

    • Our date was July 8. It was mailed on the 8 (Monday) we got it on Thursday.

  • Shyla King posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 2 days ago

    Plz someone help me!! I posted this almost two weeks ago and still nothing. I have called and talked to the tax advocate and they keep telling me another 30 days..nothing on my transcripts have been updated or changed since March!! Idk what to do anymore

    • Why can’t I get any answers ? Am I not doing something correct??

    • Which transcript are you checking. you need to check the return transcript. For us we filed the injured spouse form March 8. Our transcript did not update till the end of June. I called once it hit the 8 week mark from March 8. It had not been worked and they put in a 30 day. I called back after that 30 day. They said it had been worked but they…[Read more]

    • All I can tell you is to keep calling them because that’s what I keep doing. Finally got someone to say the earliest would be the 19th the latest would be the 2nd of August. It’s ridiculous how much time it’s taking. None of this is going to update on Where’s My Refund. They might tell you that it will, but it doesn’t. It hasn’t updated for us.

    • Sarah Mckerney where do I go to check the correct transcripts and which ones do I check? Thank you so much for commenting. I have been posting for weeks and no comments and no help at all. And I did talk to the tax advocate and they said that it’s still being worked on and call back in 30 days which is not until July 31st and this is the second 30…[Read more]

    • give it a few more days. The tax advocate people said if you call them they can track it if its not to you in 7 to 10 business days.

    • If you mean it was 7/8/19 i got mine today. Some people signed up for informed delivery on That may hwlp you locate it too!

    • yes I have informed delivery but nothing yet there.

    • ok. whelp informed delivery was a complete fail. I went out to check the mail and check was sitting in the mailbox today!!! so glad this is finally over!!!!!

  • Lacey Batchelor posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 2 days ago

    Filed taxes on March 4th. Half of our refund was taken due to our tax lady not applying all of the amount to my husband which is the IS. We resubmitted the IS form with 100% of the refund to go to the IS. Called in 8 weeks after and they claimed they had not received the form. So we were advised by our tax lady to send in an IS form through…[Read more]

    • you can fill out the form for the tax advocate people and fax it to them. Then they will call you back in a day or two. that is what we did.

    • I was told not to send in another form until after the 8 weeks to make sure they received it. How do I even contact a tax advocate??

    • you are not sending the form to the IRS. You just need to look up the tax advocate for your state. Fill out the IRS form 911-Request for Taxpayer Advocate Service Assistance. You then fax it to the one in your state. they will look into your case and call you back and help you with it. It might take them a few days to call you back.…[Read more]

    This has literally been the biggest nightmare ever! We filed our claim after the offset and it was received April 10… from there we have had 3 30 day referrals and no answers.. last person i spoke with last week told me we should have had our refund 8 weeks ago! So we got a tax advocate and she called today and gave me yet another month before…[Read more]

  • Ari May posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 4 days ago

    When the redund issue date is a Monday do they literally cut the check on Monday? 6/8?

    • God, I hope so. That’s my refund date too.

    • Me too! I tried to sign up on usps for the mail alert but they couldn’t verify my idenity… Now I’ve gotvto wait on them to send a verification code via mail 😐

    • I have informed mail, but my check isn’t in there today. Hopefully tomorrow!

    • my mail date was 7/8 and I called the treasury and confirmed it was mailed yesterday.

    • my mail date was 7/8 also. I just called the IRS and they said the check was mailed on Monday. I will be so happy when the check finally comes.

    • I am so happy they actually mailed them on Monday! We all should have something no later than Friday! Hopefully…

    • I am in the same boat as you guys my daye is also July 8 and today NOTHING so I’m hoping tomorrow I will be at the movies eating popcorn trying to forget about this tax season !!

    • Jut checked my email and email from USPS Informed Delivery a letter/check from US Department of the Treasury. It will be delivered today.

    • That is amazing! I was disappointed yesterday when nothing came. I am ready for this to be over!

    • I did come today finally!

  • Kmonyh posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 4 days ago

    How do I figure out my student loan account number to use on the IRS tax website to see my transcripts online? I’m tired of waiting on snail mail! Lol. Ps I consolidated my student loans so would it be the original account number or the account number from the consolidation? Thanks

    • You can call the dept of education. They should be able to tell you. might have to talk to lots of people but they should be able to get you the information.

  • Hollianna posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 5 days ago

    So glad to have found this group! I filed my IS with my return on March 25th. I knew it would take awhile so I just left it alone. In May I received a letter dated for the 9th saying they needed an additional 60 days to process my account? Which made no sense because I wasn’t bad expecting anything until June. So I call and was told that they d…[Read more]

    • Contact the IRS tax advocate line. Explain your situation and tell them you are experiencing economic hardship. It will help move the process along quicker. I wish I would have know about the advocate survive sooner. I filed IS back in March and they received 4/4. I got an advocate a couple weeks ago, and WMR FINALLY updated to “processing” on Fri…[Read more]

    • We’re getting the same run around this year on our IS e-filed with our return. WMR showed our return accepted March 21st, when we called for updates we were told it was actually March 29th, then April 4, then April 22nd that it was accepted. We finally got a tax advocate about 2 weeks ago and found out ours hasn’t even been assigned to be worked…[Read more]

    • Do you guys have a bar on your WMR app? Mine disappeared a long time ago and has been stuck on “Your tax return is still being processed. A refund date will be provided when available.” I will call the tax advocate today! Thanks for your help

    • Ours has had the same processing message since the beginning of April.

    • So I called the tax advocate and talked to someone he said they can help me and transferred me with a pin…. that was over an hour ago! Wow this is ridiculous

  • chris10 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 5 days ago

    This has been a real nightmare. I posted a few weeks ago, they didn’t give me all of my refunds from my injured spouse claim. I called and the people over at the IRS couldn’t give me any information as to why I didn’t get the whole amount. Trying to reach someone in the injured spouse dept. was like pulling teeth. Finally last week I spoke to…[Read more]

  • Meg posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Hello. If my injured spouse was received on 03/22 ( Code 971) and my refund was applied to Non-IRS debt on 03/25 ( Code 898) with my refund be DD or mailed as a check? Has anyone been in similiar situation and/or got their refund DD already? Thanks in advance !

    • On ours we applied for DD but the offset happened “after” we had electronically filed and I believe when we did IS claim we only had the choice for a check…if you did the IS WITH your electronic file I believe its DD :) Hope that helps!
