    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]

    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]

    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?

  • Shyla King posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 4 days, 22 hours 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]

    • yes I have informed delivery but nothing yet there.

  • Lacey Batchelor posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 5 days, 1 hour 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]

  • ashley posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week ago

    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 ago

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

    • Sunni replied 1 week ago

      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 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 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]

    • Kmonyh replied 1 week ago

      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, 1 day 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]

  • Rebecca L. posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 3 days ago

    Filed our IS with our taxes electronically on 4/13. Our 11 week process date was 6/29. Still showing “Your taxes are being processed” on WMR app and over automated system. Tried to order our transcripts online and they couldn’t verify any of our three mobile numbers under our names, so we are now waiting for a code they are sending BY MAIL. REALL…[Read more]

  • Meg posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 3 days 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!

  • Kathryn Goodwin posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 3 days ago

    Our IS was filed WITH our return. I called the IRS today only to be told they have no record of my IS and are telling me I have to re-file it and it will take another 12 weeks to process. I try to get answers to how a one whole section of a tax return can be “missing”, when every page says Injured spouse at the top. All I got was “that’s not my…[Read more]

    • Kmonyh replied 1 week ago

      Try calling 800-829-0583 ext 652 I saw this number posted in here awhile back, and they seem to know more about offsets and IS. If that doesn’t work then look up the irs tax advocate hotline and call them! Good luck!

  • Rose posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 3 days ago

    I’m so glad I found this group. However, I’ve noticed that most of you have already received more information about your Injured Spouse claim and we haven’t.

    We filed the Injured Spouse form after we received notice that our taxes had been taken. Every last penny, nothing left. We had also just gotten married and I was making payments on my…[Read more]

    • I have gotten nothing but a run around from them also. I called every day last week and was told the same thing everytime I called. I resubmitted my IS for the third time through certified mail which it said they received June 24th and they still say they don’t have record of it. There has to be something that we can do.

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

    I think this nightmare is finally over for us. I checked informed delivery this morning. There’s a check in the mail! Then went to check my online transcripts and saw the 840 code for the check. The amount next to it should be the check amount, right? I hope so. It was mailed last Friday. Probably got delayed because of the holiday. 🙂

  • Venus Martin posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 6 days ago

    My IS was accepted by the IRS on March 24th. We went through three 30 day referrals. Got the number for a tax adovocate and my case was finished 6/19. I received a letter from the IRS about the amount I would receive. How long would it be until I receive my refund. The letter did not have a mail date.

    • Mine was finished the same day as yours. They gave me the date of 7/12 that they’ll be sending me a check. Hope that helps

  • Jolie posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    Transcripts only update on Fridays. There is no code for your case being closed. You would have to find out by calling the IRS. In my case I closed on 6/4 but my transcript did not update until about 3 weeks later with the removed refund code (766) and the Additional tax assessed (290). If you filed your IS after the offset then once your case…[Read more]

    • So for mine (you replied to my post below), what is a good estimate on how many more weeks until I actually get my check? 3-4?

    • I just checked where’s my refund and it finally updated overnight to “your refund is being processed”!!

    • oh wow that’s great. I checked mine because I thought it wouldn’t update and mine says processing too. My check issue date is for today so hopefully your is too or this Friday 7/12 as I read a lot of peoples transcripts updated last week with 7/12 as a mail date.

    • Kmonyh replied 5 days ago

      My tax advocate left me a voice mail! I have a mail date for tomorrow too! 7/12 thank heavens!! Plus interest!! Woohoo!

  • Kmonyh posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    This has been nothing but a nightmare. I have literally spent hours crying over this. My loans were on deferment then my husband and I married last August. I hadn’t thought about the DoE, so we got the dreaded Offset notification in March. Filed IS at the end of March. IS received 4/4. We have called multiple times. Been told multiple things. D…[Read more]

    • UPDATE: I just called the Tax Advocate Hotline. (Btw I had less that 2 min wait!), and after a lot of prying I was able to find out that my IS was adjusted “on or around June 24th” she said. I checked WMR this morning and no change on there. Does anyone know how long it takes once it’s been adjusted to get the money? Also, my husbands origi…[Read more]

    • Jolie replied 2 weeks ago

      If you IS after offset you will receive a check. They mail checks on Fridays (unless Holiday) and DD is on Wednesdays.

    • Jolie replied 2 weeks ago

      Also I posted a timeline above your post but note that because you filed after the offset the WMR will most likely not update so I would not go by that.

    • How did you find out that your IS was received?? And how do I contact a tax advocate?? I am at a total loss as to what to do. I have called the IRS everyday for 12 days now and they keep giving me the run around and say they don’t have my IS form even though I mailed certified mail and someone signed for it. I even have asked multiple times to…[Read more]

  • Jennifer posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    I have been watching this group and it has been very helpful. Now I’m worried I hit a wall. We filed our taxes 2/14 got a letter of offset, I sent it in as of 4/16 it was pending. I called last week and the guy I spoke to said that I should’ve had a refund by now. He couldn’t see it being denied. So he sent a referral and said wait another 30 days…[Read more]

    • Jolie replied 2 weeks ago

      If you filed the IS after Offset WMR will most likely not update. I would call again towards the end of your 30 days. If you request to have transcript mailed or faxed I would wait till the Friday after your 30 days are up because transcripts only update on Fridays.
