    Currently on hold with irs lady said she was transferring me to IS department so hopefully I get answers she said she sees amount but for some reason they still are holding funds not sure why still no mailing date. 😩 IS received 3/4

    • Omg! Update so the lady from the IS department said that the adjustment should hit account 5/27 and give them 2 weeks after that to mail out check so she said expect 6/7 or 6/14 but if nothing recieved by 6/21 call back. I’m so confused! And frustrated!

    • Don’t be surprised if it happens much quicker! They like to say those extended dates to keep people from getting anxious and calling. You could update any time. My IS was rcvd 3/4 as well & I kept getting told insane lengths of time. I updated this past Friday to an 846-5/24.

    • I hope so my fingers are crossed! She also said that wmr won’t update anymore. So I was confused about that she was like it’s pointless to check wmr after IS has been offset.

    Filed 2/2 offset 2/22 received 3/11
    12 weeks today and have not received anything in the mail
    The IRStogo is still the same information, does anyone know if I have to change the amount or the “file” status?
    Thanks!

    Update: filed 2/1 offset happened IS recieved 3/4 8 weeks up 4/29. Can’t access transcripts. Wheres my refund updated today it says. We have recieved your tax return and it is being processed. It should have already been process frustrated does not even cover it. I called on Friday and was just given the 4-6 weeks to issue a refund run around.…[Read more]

    • My IS forms were received the same day as yours, 3/4. My transcripts updated last Friday with an 846 dated 5/24. WMR did not update on Friday, but I did notice it today and it had the same message as yours, that it was being processed. So if I had to guess, I would think you would be getting your check mailed this Friday too (at least that’s what…[Read more]

    • We will see mine is supposed to be DD.

    Filled on 01/28 did IS after the offset it was recived on 03/4 they informed me it would be 45 days or 8 to 11 weeks. This is the 1st time this has ever happened to me so I didnt know what to expect. Called back April 26th they stated that they needed another 30 days they would send the referral. Case cloed on april 30th that it would be 2 weeks…[Read more]

    My transcript says that it was last updated on april 1st, do they not update transcripts? and where can i find updated transcript online?

  • Lynn posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 12 hours, 40 minutes ago

    My patience seems to be waning since the IRS site updated us to “processing”. Our IS case was closed on 5/2, est.4-6 weeks for a check. (They said they do not DD on an IS claim….sent after the org. taxes.were filed.) Anyone have this close date and know when their check might be going out? I cannot access our transcript. Looking for any good…[Read more]

    • @gooftroop1 Same here, same boat so when they told me that I called back the next day just to see if I would get told the same thing and I got told the exact same thing except the 4-6 week part. So instead i was told 2-3 weeks…so maybe before then and that is just the latest to expect it maybe?!?

  • Daniel posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 1 hour ago

    I got my 846 code for Wednesday and wmr updated yesterday saying so to but got code saying could be offset but it filled injured spose with taxes fed 9. Doesn’t show injured spose on transcript should I be worried they still going to take refund?

  • Adrienne posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 day, 6 hours ago

    WMR hasn’t changed since the end of February when it said my tax return was applied to a past debt. Beginning of May they got back my portion of the return and on May 6th it was closed. It updated today to “we have received your tax return and it’s being processed”. Hoping I’m going to get my check soon 🤣

    • Have you checked your transcript or called? Mine also closed 5/6 & I updated Friday to a refund date of 5/24. Usually WMR updates the weekend before your refund is released too.

    • I can’t access my account online, but I’ve been ordering transcripts and there has been no change on there

    • Same with me! No updates at all on WMR since my refund was offset in February and all of a sudden it just updated for me today with the same message as you. My transcripts updated on Friday with an 846 code dated 5/24, so I am hopeful that the WMR update just means they are finishing everything up. (Fingers crossed!!!)

    All of our refund was taken for my student loans. I did not work this year and my wife made all the income. Our transcript updated yesterday. Can anyone help me understand what it means.

    766 Removed refund applied to non-IRS debt (this was amount was about 90% of what was supposed to come back before it was taken) 4-15-2019

    290 Additional…[Read more]

    • The 290 code is one that they typically try to release the funds to you by the date on it because if they don’t they end up having to reassess taxes and they have to pay interest to you. You’ll probably get an update the next day that your transcripts update… If your cycle code ends with a 5, it would be friday morning for a transcript update,…[Read more]

    • ok thank you for all of the great info. I greatly appreciate it.

    • Mine is identical to yours

    Yayyyyy!!! Finally I woke up to an ad of 5/22 so glad it’s over

  • Rod40 posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 6 hours ago

    File 1/30
    Offset 2/22
    IS received 3/4
    8 weeks up on 4/29
    I call every week just to get an update but all they tell me is someone is working on it, one agent told me 11 weeks which would be 5/20, ???? So I call 2 days later another agent tells me my 8 weeks is up, and he put in a second 30 referral?????
    I’m frustrated and stressed and about to…[Read more]

    • I’m on the same boat my 8 weeks was up this past Thursday the 17th they did a referral also. So frustrating

    • Well I’m right there with you guys my dates are exactly like yours and I am glad I see people getting a DD but can i get one soon😭😭

    • Call 1-800-829-0582 ext. 652
      They seem more helpful at the number and extension and you don’t get put on hold forever. When i called about a week and a half ago they told me that if i heard nothing by 5/20 to call them back because they need to make a decision on my injured spouse by that date anyway and i field 2/21 with IS and it was accepted…[Read more]

  • Derek posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 8 hours ago

    Hey, I’ve been reading this group since February. I finally got an 846 code for May 24, 2019. I assume I’ll get a paper check. Has anyone gotten their check before the refund 846 date? I know that when your refund is direct deposit, you get it on the refund date.

    • Doubtful. May 24th is the day they are mailing it, not the date you should get it.

    • You do not get your refund before the 846 date when it is a check. They only mail checks out on the date posted next to the 846 which is always a Friday. The only time it is not a Friday is if a federal holiday disrupts it but that’s not the case. But a federal holiday rallies 3 days after that date but you should still get the check sometime…[Read more]

  • Heather posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 9 hours ago

    Update… our injured spouse claim closed 05/10 and the irs said allow 2-3 weeks for a refund. This morning WMR changed from a refund date will be provided when available , back to saying we have received your tax return and it’s being processed. Could this be a good sign that this long wait is nearly over?

    • The changes between the two posts don’t mean anything. But if they said to wait 2-3 weeks then odds are you’ll probably get a ddd next weekend or the following weekend. If you can check your transcripts online i would do that because those will update before wmr updates but only by a day to a couple days before wmr does.

  • Ginny posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 2 hours ago

    Still no update they are now telling me 4-6 weeks for processing a refund? How it that possible my refund was already processed. You mean 4-6 weeks for you to sit with your thumb up your butt until you press a button.

    • Has your case already closed?

    • IS recieved 3/4
      8 weeks up on 4/29
      Money recieved back to IRS 5/6
      Now just waiting for that to process. Which makes no sense to me. If you have the money back give it to the tax payer it is pretty simple. I was told that they need to wait on the computer to do it’s thing. I have requested 4 supervisor calls gotten no call back. I wrote 2 formal…[Read more]

    • @vchesley i might can ease your mind a little…, But they told me the same thing Tuesday when I called so of course I’m tripping out like you have if you go back and read my post..anyway..I call back the next day got a different rep someone who was actually patient and nice and willing to dig enough up that they could and my case was closed…[Read more]

    • Can you access online transcripts? If not, when is the last time you called?

  • Kristen posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 4 hours ago

    Hi. This is our first year filing IS. My husband is the IS and this is for student loan debt. I filed our taxes electronically through TT 2/15 and they were accepted same day. My 570 date was 3/18. My husband got a call Wednesday from the IRS telling him that our stuff wasn’t even looked at until the end of April. They put us on a 30 day referral.…[Read more]

    • The IRS has been calling you?

    • If the irs is calling you, then i would personally call the irs at a number that the irs website gives you because there are false calls going around and technically the irs doesn’t call for info. They send you letters in the mail. The only time the irs should call is when you have a tax advocate with the irs. But if random irs workers are…[Read more]

    Hi all, first year filing injured spouse. Didn’t even bother checking my Friday update until just now because I was convinced it wouldn’t update. Was shocked when it had. However, I am confused about the codes and messages on there. Can anyone help me out?

    971 Injured spouse claim received 3/6/19 (I get this)
    766 Removed refund…[Read more]

    • Yours are identical to mine. I hope that means the refund will be coming soon.

    • As long as nothing else comes up, I bet you’ll update next Friday for a refund date of 5/31. Have you called to confirm that your case has closed & you’re just waiting on the final adjustment?

    • Usually if you file injured spouse after your refund was already offset, they reassess taxes before releasing the funds back to you. When they do that, they change the cycle code sometimes. The years where i field IS with my return, the reassess code didn’t have a cycle change but the year where i filed IS after it was offset they changed my cycle…[Read more]

    Has anyone here filed through a third party, received part of your taxes early and then had to file the IS? This is the first time we have ever done this. We filed with JH. they did not submit the IS with taxes like they were supposed to, but we did the advance so we received a portion of our taxes. But I then had to submit the IS form. I am…[Read more]

    • I am also curious if this will delay my process. I am showing they have sent the notice and pulled our taxes back but now DD date but all of my info matches several others who show a DD of 5/22. I wonder if some of those have to do with the state I am in because not all of my numbers have matched what others have.

    • What codes do you have? What date did you file IS? And the issue with JH is secondary; it won’t have an effect on your refund time frame at all.

    • Also, the ‘advance’ is really called an ‘anticipation loan’. You will still receive a check, since you already had DD once and filed IS after the fact. You’re indebted to either JH or MetaBank, depending on the type of loan you received. Also, depending on the type of loan you agreed to, you could be accruing interest until it’s paid. I would…[Read more]

    IS received 3/4. So I called today and the man tells me they put some type of code on my case that stops my refund from going out? (Anyone heard of that?) So it’s pending still and they won’t have a mailing date until next week to tell me or even the amount yet. Even know on 5/7 a lady told me an amount already but who knows at this point I’m…[Read more]

    • Considering that almost every single person that answers the phones is actually a seasonal hire and most probably never even worked there before so most don’t know half of what they are saying, it could be that this “code” is what they use to stop your refund from being offset in the first place. Which wouldn’t be news to anyone who files an…[Read more]
