  • Patty posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months ago

    so if I have a 846 with a date of 7/20/18 (2nd 846 after first i had 766 applied to student loan) and a 776 interest credited to account with date of 30 does that mean my check will be coming soon

    Hi everyone. First time here.
    So I keep calling IRS and they tell me that they can’t tell me any more info. than if it was received or adjusted. Things I already know from online. Yet all of you have talked to ppl with more specific info. What exact number did you call?
    So anyone get their check already with similar dates as me: e-filed first and…[Read more]

      I call 1800 829 0582 ext 652 i always talk to someone and get some kinda info.

    • Tiff replied 6 months ago

      I filed IS i sent it 14th they got it 19th still waiting for paper check but got a closed date of the 9th of july

    • We have the same dates… mine was received on May 10th… I was at 8 weeks on July 5th but my account was closed in June 27th… still waiting for paper check. They said sometime this week. But I don’t believe it at this point. Every time I call they say 2 more weeks.

    • Tiff replied 6 months ago

      I hope so. They didnt tell me much of anything when i called. But the other day they said how much i was getting and all that so hopefully that means were near the finish line

  • Kristopher posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months ago

    I have a new update for everyone.. I called on 7/9 and the agent I spoke with said that my claim was done and my return was being processed, but no release date was posted yet so he asked me to wait a week or two before calling again. Before he got off the call I asked if it would be sent DD or by check and he said DD if I filed that way…[Read more]

    • I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue and if so when did they receive their check in the mail?

    • I’m sorry I don’t have answer for you. But I want to know, what exact number did you call to get this info.?
      Every time I call, they tell me they can’t tell me anything more than whether its being processed or amended…..things I can find out on my own online.
      They told me I have to call after 16 wks. for any more info. yet I’m afraid something…[Read more]

    • I call their number at 1-800-829-1040 and click 1 or 2 for the language. Then after the responses, I pick 2-1-3-2 and when it asks for your ss# don’t type anything the 2 times that it asks and it will redirect you to a agent. You might have to wait between 10-30 minutes before an agent will speak to you, but that is my usual waiting time.

    • Just tell them you are wanting to check on the status status of your injured spouse claim. When did you file your IS form?

  • Tottianna Culler posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 1 week ago

    Hello everyone!

    I’ve been fill this group since May and you all have been a great help! I mailed in my IS sepertely from my taxes. I accessed our transcript and here are my codes

    971 IS claim received 4-23-2018
    766 Removed refund applied to non-IRS debt 4-15-2018
    290 Additional tax accessed 7-30-2018

    Hopefully I’ll get my 846 soon. This has…[Read more]

    • Ur 290 had the same date as mine so hopefully we both get it soon

    • Can’t wait for this to be over with. I know know next time to file with return.

    • Good luck! I’m jealous, no updates for me today. The only update I have had this year is that my injured spouse form was received on 5/21…. Nothing since, was really hoping it updated today. Did you all look up your transcripts? When we’re your forms received?

    • JB…

      My forms were rec 4/23. My transcript just updated today 7/13, with the last 2 codes. It stayed on IS received forever. LOL I also called weekly after my 8weeks were up. Each call I got a different answer. That’s what sucked the most. But, seeing my transcript update was exciting. I was told system is old and it takes 2 weeks for it to u…[Read more]

    • Thanks, you gave me hope! Lol! I try calling, but I just never have patience to sit on hold just to get a different answer. When my codes updated last year, my check was in the mail like a week later, so here’s to hoping you get yours soon! They have had their funding cut down every year lately, but come on! Update your systems already!

    • Mine was recieved on 5/21 too,they said they sent me a letter on the 9th,last thing being reflected was parr of the money was returned.still waiting. I cabt access my transcript online so i have to call and ask to have it faxed they gave me a milluon questions on why am i doing it.and they said it wasnt up to date yet either. Hopefully soon they…[Read more]

    • Tiff

      I’m not sure about the appeal process. However, I am sure that the injured spouse gets back what they should and not their spouses portion.

    • JB

      That would so be on time if my check came this week. If not, at least I know it’s on it’s the way.

    • Really? I barley made anything they didnt even take out federal for me and they are from what the lady said on the phone they will be taking about 40 percent if not more from my debts which ine was from before we were together. Idk what to believe . The website said from the begining i was getting a portion back but it was wrong when i called they…[Read more]

    • My husband is the IS and they returned his portion. Sorry if my post was confusing. Fingers are crossed that we get our 846 soon!!

    • Tiff replied 6 months ago

      Did you get the 846 yet? I have the same date as your last part the 290 additional tax accessed

    • Tiff

      I checked my transcript and still the same. I think it updates weekly and should by Friday. When I get an update I’ll post it!

    • Forgot to add my close date was July 3. Was told check date would be available on July 17 and WMR should update by then as well. That’s what I was told on July 9. My transcript updated from IS received with last 2 codes on July 13. So I’m guessing Friday is my day.

    • Tiff replied 6 months ago

      Tottianna any news?

    • Tiff

      I called this morning and still no check date. She said it would be available by next week and to check WMR. It is still showing offset so Gonna check transcript on Friday.

    • Still no update:(

    • Nope. They said it’s pending. DOE hasn’t returned the portion yet. I called BFS line at it’s still saying our full amount. I guess I’ll be calling them instead to see if they’ve returned the funds. I was told to call back this coming week.

  • Jerry posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 1 week ago

    After months of different answers and different dates, even different amounts. I was told my “issue date” was July 9. My question is this- is the issue date the same as the date the IRS MAILS the check

    • Looking at mine from last year, my refund issued date was 8/18, the check was mailed 8/21. So, to answer your question, no but the check should be issued within a few days off that date, in my experience. If you haven’t, I’d recommend that you check your transcripts because it could show your cycle date and give you more information. It’s crazy…[Read more]

    • Ive been through something similar,they gave me the same date but told me 4 to 6 weeks to recieve it but that they mailed me a letter ast of that day too but still havent recieved it. I hope we both get it soon

  • Kristopher posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 1 week ago

    Called the IRS this morning and they said that my refund was pending and it should be released in 2 weeks so that is great news!

    • That’s awesome, I’m happy for anyone that makes it through this awful process! How long has it been for you? When did they receive your form?

    • They received and accepted my IS on 3/12. Been a journey, but I am glad it is coming to an end. Hopefully. WMR hasn’t updated yet and probably won’t. I’m going to call again on Monday if I haven’t gotten my mailed transcripts or a refund day yet. It should be posted in their system by then.

  • Kristopher posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    I wanted to create an account to tell my journey with IS so far. I e-filed my return on 1/29 and it was accepted 1/30. 2/22 I got a notice that my return was being offset on WMR. 2/27 I sent in my IS form and it was received and accepted on 3/12. I called the IRS on 4/30 to check the status of my IS and the lady said that she was putting in a 30…[Read more]

    • Wow, what an awful experience. If the IRS was a company I did business with, I would switched companies a long time ago! Lol! We all need to compile all of our stories in to a pdf and each of us should send it to our state representitives.

  • kourtnee ojeda posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    I called last week, lady told me that my injured spouse was completely done, I was just waiting for my check which could take anothe 2 to 4 weeks. She said that if I don’t receive it by the end of July to call back. I don’t know if it’s true but she said that they have very old systems and it takes it like 2 weeks after they put in a reque…[Read more]

  • Soprano posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    So I spoke with a lovely agent yesterday after about a 25 minute wait on hold. They had indeed received my form and it was already processed last week! Then I checked my transcript again today and I see that it’s updated. I now have a code 971 and 766 (With a 290-additional tax assessed $0 thrown in for extra confusion.) So I think I’m just…[Read more]

  • MommaSandman posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    Good afternoon. I filed my taxes online in early February, and sent the Injured Spouse form in on 2/15. On 3/12 I received my paperwork back in the mail, asking for signatures on my full tax return, in spite of the fact that I had filed electronically previously. I sent the signed paperwork back in on 3/12. Toward the end of March, the WMR site…[Read more]

    • You should call this number, the wait time is not as bad as calling the main number. 1-800-829-0582 ext 652, it was about 20-25 minute wait. Not terrible. Also, if you are able to, view your transcript online, it will show you the codes, meaning what status your return is on now. The WMR does not necessarily update on time.

  • Nicole posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi, New here and 1st year I filed IS. I filed 2/28, and filed the IS form with my 1040 but unknowingly did not write Injured Spouse in the top left corner of my 1040 (simple instruction that I missed) Then I forgot to include my EIC schedule, so that put my return on hold. Now that all forms are in good order (as of 6/6/18) my IS is being…[Read more]

    • They told be 45 days too and that it was beibg processed but from what ive read on here most have been getting it 11 weeks after they sent IS seperate and 14 or more when sent in together. Fingers crossed its the 45 days they gave me the date of july 5th and they recieved the paperwork may21st took then over a week to get

  • Soprano posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi Everyone, I mailed my injured spouse paperwork April 17th after finding out that my refund had been offset by checking WMR (I received the letter a few days later). I still have no updates on WMR or on my transcripts. I feel like I should call but I’m not sure where I should call or what info I need. Can anyone help?

    • Hey im in the sam situation. Mine doesnt show. Have you checked my amended return? Someone told me to try that but mine does t show on that either, i called and they said they recieved it and its processing the last time the lady said 45 days but from what ive read it’s 11 weeks or more evwn though site says 8 . 1-800-820-0582 ext. 652

    My wait is finally over. This Forum has been extremely helpfuland this will be my first post ever but I thought I might give some hope. I initially e- filed and tax return accepted on 3/30. Got the notice in the mail that my tax was offset due to spouse on 4/6. I mailed my injured spouse form via first class mail same day and IRS received on 4/9.…[Read more]

  • Jennifer posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    I finally have an update. My check was mailed yesterday. I filed 2/10. I had to have a manual refund because of tax debt but yay after all this time my end is finally in sight.

  • Toni posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi all, So glad I found this site and know that I’m not out here alone!
    After days and days of continued checking the app to see where my taxes are I finally requested my transcript to see if that would tell me something.
    This is what I have:
    Code 150 Tax returned filed 5-14-18
    Code 806 W-2 or 1099 withholding 4-15-18
    Code 570 Additional account…[Read more]

    • Your 570 code means someone from injured spouse has started working on it but as for how long it could take is really just a guessing game. I filed 2/10 and mine was on code 570 since like 2 weeks after i filed and im just now getting mine it was mailed yesterday.

  • mpistol posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago


    I just checked my transcript online today and I have this information. Would anyone be able to explain what does it men? This is my first time filing an injured spouse claim.

    150 Tax return filed 20181005 03-26-2018 $0.00
    806 W-2 or 1099 withholding 04-15-2018 -$746.00
    766 Credit to your account 04-15-2018…[Read more]

    • From what i understand is that 290 code means they started working your injure spouse claim and 971 is just a notice letting you know that it was recieved and someone is working it

    • So at this point once your transcript updates again this friday you shoukd see an additional 846 code with a date and thats the date they will mail your check

  • Super mad posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    I finally have code 846!! It says refund issued 6/29 does that mean I’ll get a paper check or direct deposit?

  • Jennifer posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 7 months ago

    How long does it normally take to receive a refund after a manual refund request was entered? I filed 2/10 and was told that a manual refund was requested on 6/13. Tired of waiting and waiting.
