  1. I have a cycle number 20150704 – March 9th 2015 plus a code 570…. (additional something ) Pending… Not so sure what I am looking at But i have checked WMR all it says is I am still processing a date with be provided when available.. I spoke to a agent at the IRS and she said I am soon to be released give it till the 25 th of this month if i still do not hear anything to call back to see what more is happening. They said nothing is wrong they were checking my EIC and Child dependents very odd this has never occurred before. Can you help me understand things a little more clearer.

    • Dorothy,

      We sent you a direct email ! Please let us know if you did not receive it. Thank you!

      Also, to answer your questions above, yours like many returns has been randomly selected for manual review. Do not be alarmed. 570 DOES NOT MEAN AUDIT!! It simply means they needed to verify or manually check the return. In some instances, they have made a minor adjustment because of a math error or in other instances it has been to verify EIC (Earned income Credit), Identity, Education or Healthcare credits. In addition they are short staffed this year. The good news is that your return is in the works and from the IRS Representatives we talk to, they are making EVERY EFFORT to resolve all 570 codes and other delays as well within 7 to 10 days. Many are reporting a 2 or 3 day delay. It sounds like yours will update by Tuesday and process as expected. You should have your return on or before February 25th! It could be a few days later depending on your bank and the method you chose to receive. Your WMR May not update until after you receive your refund. We are hearing from many Taxpayers with the Codes 570/971 that they receive their refunds before the WMR Site says “Refund Sent”. Keep us posted!

      • I have received your email. I will let you know if I have my refund. Thank you.

      • Dominic Checchia

        I have a cycle code 20150705 and next to the code it says March 9th 2015… Getting anxious alittle bit i filed jan 23rd. had to confirm my identity, with the irs just so confused this year never had to go thru this problem. I do have a 570 but nothing in that slot money wise. Please give me a sign of releif and explain the best way u can. Thankyou

        • Each situation is unique. There are many variables, such as how you filed, who you filed with, and how easy or complex your actual return might have been. The March 9th 2015 date is their worst case scenario 21 day date they give to everyone based on their initial return acceptance date. If you had an significant changes from last year, or had EIC, Education or Healthcare Credits, that could be the reason for your delay. Also Some taxpayers that filed early have had issues this year for several reasons.
          1. Many have reported that the online software they used did not even have some forms from the IRS until 1/28. So if you filed before that date, there were some new forms that might have been missed which has caused some slight delays. It wasn’t caught by the “Review” at the end of your pre-filing check because the forms were not even available yet.
          2. No definitive evidence linking filing time to audits/reviews exists however a larger than usual number of taxpayers seem to have been slightly delayed this year. The representatives we spoke with assured us that the true reason behind the delays has more to do with staff shortages, new forms, and bugs needing to be worked out with any new changes. Sometimes it takes a week or two to discover what may be causing errors, like this year, they discovered a few weeks into this years tax filing season that 800K had received 1095a’s with incorrect information. If you happened to be one of these 800K, then the information you submitted to the IRS was incorrect.

          All of the above items, have been known to cause slight delays this year. Another thing some are being asked to do is to verify their identity. All of these items are quickly fixed and shouldn’t cause a major delay. If you have healthcare credits and received a 1095a from Healthcare.gov you may want to check to see if yours was one of the 800K that was sent out with wrong data. Read more here about this: http://blog.tavorro.com/what-consumers-need-to-know-about-corrected-1095as/

          Use FREE TOOL to check your 1095a data: https://www.healthcare.gov/taxes/tools/silver/ or you can call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.

          Also, if you need to call the IRS they can be reached here: 800-829-1040. If you do call the IRS try to get a supervisor. Be nice, but insist that they give you access to a supervisor, even if they tell you that the supervisor cannot do anything more for you than they can.

          To request a FREE Taxpayer advocate Call 877-777-4778. The good news is that once your transcript updates again with an 846 code you should receive your refund within a few days.

        • I file on the 20th and accepted but had to verify identify and I have the same cycle posted..

      • I had sent in my amended tax return to the IRS in early April and on the “Where’s my amended refund” website, it stated they received it on April 13th. Then about a week and a half later or so, it changed to “take notice, we need additional information and a letter will be mailed to you explaining…” But now it is May 21st, and I still have NOT received any letter from them. Please help me figure out what I should do from here. Thank you.

  2. I have a cycle number of 20150801 with the last code being 846 which I understand means refund issued. But out beside that code says 3-16-2015. The cycle date should be February 27th according to this post. Which is correct? Thanks in advance. Your knowledge base is awesome!

    • Thank you Stephanie for the Kind Words! We are happy to help anytime! Congrats on your refund approval! The cycle code 20150801 indicates a target DDD (Direct Deposit Date of February 27th! The 3/16/2015 is the 21 day “Worst Case Scenario” date the IRS likes to give out. From all indications, (The 846 Code etc..) your return has processed and your refund is ready to be sent. Nothing is exact since everyone’s situation is different and there are so many variables…. your bank, method of choice for refund to be received, tax preparer etc… The good news is that a majority of taxpayers are reporting to us that they are receiving their refunds within 8 to 14 days from time of acceptance. Please keep us updated on yours as well! Also, please note, your WMR Site may or may not update prior to your refund being received. There have been instances where the WMR Site did not update until 2 days after a refund was received. If yours is blank or remains unchanged do not worry!

  3. If any of you are experiencing a financial hardship due to a delayed refund you can request a FREE Taxpayer Advocates help!

  4. My transcript for return transcripct say not available til may but my account transcript is available what does that mean they say 2 week delay no issues

    • Hi Richard, it is normal for the “Wage and Income Transcript to say not available even though you can view your “account transcript”. Here is an explanation for the various types of transcripts you are able to view.

      Return Transcript
      Tax Return Transcripts show most line items from your tax return (Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ) as it was originally filed, including any accompanying forms and schedules. This transcript does not reflect any changes you, your representative or the IRS made after you filed your return. In many cases, a Return Transcript will meet the requirements of lending institutions offering mortgages and student loans.

      Record of Account Transcript
      Record of Account Transcripts combine the information from tax account and tax return transcripts.

      Account Transcript
      Tax Account Transcripts provide any adjustments either you or we made after you filed your return. This transcript shows basic data, including marital status, type of return filed, adjusted gross income and taxable income.

      Wage & Income Transcript
      Wage and Income Transcripts show data from information returns, such as W-2s, 1099s and 1098s, reported to the IRS. Most recent year information may not be complete until July.

      Please note the Wage and Income Transcript may not show up till July but if your return has been approved you should see data for the current tax year in all of the other 3 options for 2014. The “Account Transcript” option has the codes you are looking for…. about half way down on page 1.

      Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

  6. I can view all 4 Transcripts with a cycle code of 20150803, not sure what that means, but my last code is 570 and says pending..no changes on WmR.. still says processing..Help!

    • The WMR Site this year has been very slow to update. We have had hundreds report into us that they received their refund before the WMR Site ever updated to show “Refund Sent”, so do not be alarmed if your WMR Site bars disappear or fail to update. Also, the 570 codes a lot are getting on their transcript can mean any number of things. Remember these are transaction codes that are used internally by the IRS. Most 570 codes are resolved internally without needing any additional information from the taxpayer, however you can call the IRS at 800-829-1040 and see if they need more info from you. Occasionally people are being asked to verify their identity and other times it is just a brief delay while the IRS verifies education and/or healthcare credits. Let us know if we can help you further!

    • Dyna, Code 570 is nothing to be alarmed about – it simply means they need to review it manually to see if there is a minor error, or a verification is needed for EIC, Healthcare or Education or possibly even an ID Theft check. They typically send out a letter explaining why you got the 570 code or you can call and see if they need additional information. A 570 code does NOT mean audit. Most 570 Codes are resolved internally without needing additional information from the taxpayer. They also usually resolve in 7 to 10 days, sometimes less. Keep us posted!

  7. Good Afternoon Tavorro and thank you for all your advice! I filed February 8th, accepted same day, been stuck on “still processing” ever since, I check my transcripts, only bottom 2 available, any idea what this means? I click on “account transcript” but nothing pulls up from my phone, does the “return transcript” n/a need to change before I get refund? And why is my wage and income available already? Didn’t think it would be there till July, any info much appreciated!

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

    • Hi Brian, have you tried pulling your account transcript up from a tablet or laptop? We have been told that some had trouble viewing it from their smartphone. Check that and let us know. Thanks!

      • i was asked to verifiy id…did it online 3/11/15 called irs and was told that i went back into processing 3/13/15…..i can see my transripts now also…but what is the 570 code for? could it had been for the idverify which i did….and my record of accont form says return due date or return recieved date (whatever is later) 4/15/15 and processing date 4/6/15…please help!!!! thanks

        • When is the last time you checked your transcript? Have you called the IRS lately to make sure there is nothing else they need from you? Did you have healthcare or education credits? Usually once you ID Verify and your account is updated it doesn’t take more than 10 to 14 days to get your refund, many report receiving it within a week.

  8. I have a code 570 and 20150801 date. However, I don’t see an 846 on the account. I filed and got accepted on 02/07. I am a little worried. Can anyone please help me with this?Does this mean my refund date is Friday the 27th?Thanks in advance.

  9. Good Afternoon Tavorro, I checked my 2014 account transcript and it says No Return Filed! All blank! No codes! Nothing! I’ve seen online where numerous people have had same issue, any ideas why this would be the case? I filed and was accepted 17 days ago

  10. Also Tavorro, I checked with H&R Block, I filed with their free file, the agent I spoke with said he used something called “where’s my money” on IRS website and he said he was seeing a refund date of March 2nd! Now I’m totally confused! Ugghh!

    • Brian, Do you have a smartphone? Download the FREE IRS APP Called IRS2GO and see what it says for you. Typically this year the WMR Site has been notoriously late to update. Maybe they have resolved those issues and the WMR site is updating again. I will check on this for you in the meantime. Thanks

      • Yes, it just says “still processing”, so then just because my account transcript says no return filed, that’s no reason for concern?? Like a lot of people are saying? Sorry for all the questions

  11. Now my bars all disappeared on WMR, says processing…..smh

  12. I have two 570 codes one was dated for 3/2/2015 now the other says 3/9/2015 I filed on 1/20/2015 got letter a review letter saying it can take up 60 days. No additional information needed from at the time.. So what’s really going on..

    • Mia just checking in to see if yours updated. We have had a lot of reports in today that a large number of the 570 codes for the cycle codes for the first two weeks of March are finally updated. Please keep us posted.

  13. I have a cycle 20159805 but no code 846. I do, however, have codes 806, 768, and 766 and the date next to them is 04-15-2015. I have no idea what it all means. Please help!

    • Tina, that is actually not bad news, it just means they are still processing your return. Everyone has the 4/15/2015 date out beside certain transaction codes. All of these codes are internal transaction codes that the IRS uses to streamline the whole process. You need for your account transcript to update once more to reflect “Refund Approves. I would check it again in the morning and also on Tuesday and see if your is updated then!

      • I have no code 846, however I was audited filed 1/16, accepted 1/20, & here it is 5/20 & no news or money. how often does transcripts update. my cycle code 20150405

  14. Sorry that cycle number should say 20150805

    • Filed on 2/18/15 accepted the same day pulled the transcripts have a code 150 cycle 20140805 date 3/16/15. 846 refund issue 3/16/15. Can you help me understand this. Thanks

  15. So I received a letter dated from February 19th. Saying I’m under a review which can take 60 days. But today I could see my account transcript its got cycle code 20150805. Well it does have the 570 code. And all other codes to even 846 but the very bottom code is 570. But on wmr on irs.gov my bar is missing but it still says processing top code is 846. Don’t no if that matters

  16. Ok so your saying that bars missing is a great sign Tavorro?? I’ve got people saying just the opposite that it means your under review

    • Hi Brian – No, NOT AT ALL – In the majority of cases, even three today, we had people have their bars disappear, they were able to order a transcript within 24 hours and then they got an 846 code – and all three of these people received their refund a day earlier than they were expecting and the WMR Site is not even showing “refund sent” yet. Everyone’s situation is unique but a large majority of people reporting their bars missing have had them reappear a few days later. Keep us posted on yours!

      • We have a large sized Facebook group for people with tax issues. Every single one had bars disappear and 570 codes and other issues and have yet to see a change after weeks and weeks. We’re talking about hundreds of people here….

        • We have had hundreds reports resolved and updated codes to 846 this week. Of those that you know do any have healthcare or educational credits??? Many that have unresolved 570/971 codes have either healthcare or educational credits that need to be verified or they still need to verify their identity. That is the three most common issues. Please keep us posted.

          If you or any of the facebook group need help getting a taxpayer advocate to help you let us know, we have several we can reach out to and ask them to contact you.

          • Filed the 20th of Jan and accepted 28th of Jan.
            Revd a letter dated for Jan 28 2015. The 4464c. Called and said that I needed to verify ID and was told I did not…that I needed to call back after 60 days. That is coming soon. 20150602 Cycle date Two 570’s with different march dates 03/03 and 03/09. The WMR site says still processing with the Topic 152 Code. Is this normal? I did not have health insurance, but the 3 kids had medicaid. Dont you think by now I would have recvd another letter?

          • Tiffany you were told that you did not verify your ID ? read your comment above – did I misread that? It would appear that our return delay has gone on way to long for a verify ID Case especially if you WERE ABLE to verify your ID. Can you please clarify this for us? Did you receive a 1095a from Healthcare.gov for you or your children? Please keep us posted.

  17. Hello Tavorro! I have a cycle code of 20150703. Transcript shows 846 code as of this morning and says refund issued 03-16-2015. Any idea when my DDD will be?

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

  18. Hi Tavorro, I have a question, feel I finally have somewhat of good news. I checked my transcript this morning, and I see the 846! But there’s another tc that I’ve not seen. Here’s what shows:

    Code Explanation of Transaction Cycle Date Amount
    150 Tax Return Filed 20150505 02-23-2015 $x,xxx.00
    806 W-2 or 1099 Withholding 04-15-2015 -$x,xxx.00
    570 Additional account action pending 02-23-2015 $0.00
    290 Additional Tax Assessed 20150805 03-16-2015 $0.00
    846 Refund Issued 03-16-2015 $x,xxx.00

    The 846 is my full amount \. I did file Injured spouse, my spouse had no income, and she had the debt. What is the 290 Code? And am I correct thinking my DDD is 3-5-15? Is this final now?

    Is there anything to worry about since the 290 Code has the Cycle Code instead of the 846?

    Thanks so much!

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

  19. I’m beginning to worry about my taxes I filled on 2/12 and got accepted within minutes. I checked my 2014 account transcript and it says No Return Filed! All blank! No codes! Nothing! My bars all disappeared on WMR on the 2/24, and it STILL says processing…Does that mean that my return was never received???

  20. Had a ddd of 2/11. Bars completed to third tier approved, then disappeared. Now showing an ! action required and to call blah blah blah…. mention reference code 1121. So I called ’bout 100 times before they give me the 60 day, don’t call us speech. Transcript reads 766,766,768,846,846,841,841….. Also has date 02-23-2015. Cycle number 20150505?? What to think?

  21. Good morning Tavorro, one more question then will stop freaking until I get something in my account transcript, just to recap, filed February 8th, accepted same day, one bar until day 18, then bar disappeared 2 days ago, under account transcript still says “no return filed”, from what I’ve seen a lot of people in same boat, I’ve heard could just be processing delay, any new info you can add?? Thank you so much!

  22. Tavorro I filed on jan 20 accepted the same day checked my status says still processing, called Irs didn’t really get an answer but just wait six to eight weeks , I checked my transcripts and I see code 150 cycle 20150805 code 806 and 570 with 0 but no 846 what does that mean?

  23. I hope I can get some insight here. I filed on 1/26, accepted the same day. I was “being processed” for over a month. I was able to order my transcripts 3 days ago, and I do have the 846 release code. However, I woke up this morning and it says my account is under review. It doesn’t say they need additional information or a letter was sent or anything. On my transcripts there are codes for a freeze and an unfreeze also. My cycle code is 20150805. It is possible that even though WMR says I’m under review, that I still may be getting my return next week? Thanks in advance!

  24. i have code of 971 and 570 on my tax transcript. I efiled 12 days ago. Do a lot of people see these codes before a refund is actually sent? WMR says processing. My return is over 10,000. Does this mean i will get a paper check even i had it set for dd?

    • fyi i have the dates of 3/16/2015 and $0 next to each of those codes

      in addition, it does give me a cycle date of march 4th, but no 846…yet

    • People can get deposits for over $10K UNLESS there is a limitation by your BANK or Card that you are sending your refund to. The IRS does not have a 10K limit. If you have healthcare or educational credits, Identity issues or even EIC it is very common to get 570/971 codes. They often resolve without the taxpayers having to do anything else. Keep us posted.

    • Hi Jess, the IRS does not have a 10K Limit. Often this limit is from the banks or a card company. Have you checked with the financial institution that you selected for use when receiving your return to see if they have a limit? For instance, Walmart’s moneycard, that a lot of Jackson Hewitt users select to use, has a 10K limit. There are many reasons you may have a 570 code. It does NOT mean audit. Do you have education, healthcare or EIC Credits? It could simply mean they are verifying those credits or it could mean because of the amount they are doing an identity check. Regardless of the reason do not be alarmed. Most of these issues are resolved by the IRS internally without needing additional information from yoU!. I would give it a few days and check to see if your account transcript is updated. Keep us posted. For more information on healthcare credit delays read this: http://blog.tavorro.com/what-consumers-need-to-know-about-corrected-1095as/

      • my transcript looks like this
        code 150
        806
        971
        570

        the amount next to codes 971 and 570 are $0 with a date of march 16, 2015

        i have a cycle date on the code 150 line of tomorrow

        on code 806 it says my full refund amount with a negative sign

        it’s been exactly 2 weeks since i was accepted

        i am hoping i get my return in the 21 day window.

        looking for people who had a 971/570 code on their return and got it lifted with a 571 and 846 codes…..i read on other blogs that many who had the 971 and 570 code received checks instead of direct deposits.

        Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

        • i got a 571 additional action completed

          with 846 refund issued

          now can you tell me if this refund is a dd as i requested when i efiled or is this a paper check?

          however so glad that the refund issued is now on my transcripts!!!

          • Hi Jess,

            Thanks so much for updating us and Congrats also on your refund being processed and approved. We have had a large group like yourself update this week. Nothing you listed above would indicate to us that it will be a paper check. A delay does not turn your DD into a paper check. Was there a specific reason that led you to think you might be getting a paper check? Also, when there is a delay like yours the money is usually sent within a few days via direct deposit if that is the method you chose. We have had taxpayers report in that they received it by the weekend in instances like yours. The March 23rd is a worst case scenario 21 Day date they give themselves. You should have your refund well before then. Keep us posted.

        • there is hope. i went from 970/571 for weeks to 846 refund issued today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          the new codes i have are:

          i got a 571 additional action completed

          with 846 refund issued it has a date of march 23, 2015 with the full amount i am expecting

          now can you tell me if this refund is a dd as i requested when i efiled or is this a paper check?

          however so glad that the refund issued is now on my transcripts!!!

          hope everyone gets the update they are praying for!

          • I checked my transcript and today and it finally shows an 846 with 3/23/15 date. Hope I get soon. WMR still shows processing.

            Finally Got my Refund!!

            Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

          • How long did you have the 571 before you got the 846? I have had code 571 for 3 weeks now

          • April, typically the 570 code clears up in 7 to 10 days. Have you called to make sure you don’t need to ID Verify?

  25. I just am able to see all transcripts a few days ago after filing on 1/21 and getting accepted the same day. I was under review as most of everyone. After calling in and doing answering verification questions a few days late my transcripts were all able to be seen. I saw on my refund and account transcripts I have Cycle Code 20150805 along with the following codes:

    Code: 150 Date:3-16-2015
    Code: 806 Date:4-15-2015
    Code: 766 Date:4-15-2015
    Code: 768 Date:4-15-2015
    Code: 570 Date:3-16-2015
    Please help explain all of this for me I have seen your great expertise and decided this was the best go to resource! Thanks in advance!

  26. Also I see that I am suppose to have a deposit on the 5th
    which is this Thursday is it still possible without the
    correct code being present?

  27. I filed on jan 20 and accepted jan 20 then waited my 21 days and finally got a letter about needing more information which was my 8965 form and 1095a form which has to do with the healthcare. I faxed it in on feb 12th i wasnt able to order transripts until this morning and the only thing i see is a 570 and a cycle code of 20150805. Does this mean my refund is close to being in my hand? Or are they still processing?

    • Hi Samantha,

      Yes, it means your refund is processing. I would check it again tomorrow and hopefully it will update to add a 846 Code for you which means “refund approved/issued”. You should get your refund a few days after that happens. The WMR Site continues to update very slowly this year. Many are reporting again this week that they received their refunds without the WMR Site even showing “Refund Sent” until days later. Keep us posted =)

  28. good morning

    my taxes were file and accepted feb 18. At first WMR was showing the bar of it being accepted as of date, its showing its still being processed. I looked at my acct transcript and i have 971 notice issued 03/16 and 570 additional account action pending 03/16. i also have a cycle date of 20150805 with date of 03/16 by $0.00 for amount. Is there a hold on my acct? will they mail me something? or will this just work itself out internally?

    • Latasha,

      It appears everything is progressing ok with your return. Yes, you will get a letter from the when you have a 570 code but many report their issue being resolved before they even get the letter. Over 70% of the taxpayers reporting in to us got a letter that literally said “We do not need additional information from you at this time”, so hopefully that will be the case with yours as well. We are told by the representatives we spoke with again this morning that they are still pushing to resolve all delays (570 Codes etc..) within 7 days. We have seen some resolve in 1 to 3 days. Keep checking your transcript for it to update with a 846 code. The WMR Site continues to be behind in updating. We had another batch of taxpayers report in throughout last week that they received their refund prior to the WMR Site updating with “Refund Sent”.

    • Dominic Checchia

      I wouldn’t go buy the transcript code for your refund… Cause mine was due to be deposited on feb 26th and that didn’t happen… Looks like to me ur refund is due on the 16th of march. My 570 code has a date of 3/9/15 so hopefully that is my deposited date. I’ll keep ur informed if i do receive my money on that day or even before.

      • Thanks for the heads up I was sure hoping that is would be the 5th but the 16th is just fine with me I waited all year for this money a few more days won’t hurt :).

      • a 570 code can cause your refund to be delayed. If you have an 846 code the cycle code date is accurate.

    • Alexis, Have you received a letter from the IRS or has your account transcript updated to a 846 Code as of today?

    • I’m going threw the same exact thing. 🙁

  30. refund is currently under review with tax topic 151, code 1242. transcript indicates code 846, however, $$ amount is total refund amount less premium tax credit amount (am not one of the 800k) is anyone else experiencing the same? transcript date 20150805. customer service rep could not determine why refund is less than expected. have not received any messages and/or letters from IRS requesting additional documents.

  31. I was suppose to receive my refund on 2/19 but didn’t and so I called and was told I had to verify my identity. After verifying my identity I checked my transcript and saw that my cycle code was 20150805 with 846 for refund issue. What does this mean?

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

    • That is great news Gabrielle!

      You should receive your refund on or before March 5th. Congrats! Please keep us posted so we can update your status to received.

      • I have DDD when I check WMR it still says we have received your refund and it is being processed. My transcript shows 20150805 so will I still get my direct deposit March 5th?

        Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

  32. Good morning,
    I’ve read through most of the questions and answers here, and the majority have been answered effectively. I do have a question pertaining to myself though and maybe others are in the same boat. I currently have a 570 code on transcript with a date of 03-02-2015, I filed Jan 21 Accepted Jan 22. I have a tax advocate and I’ve learned that the hold is due to income verification, in which my previous employer faxed all documents pertaining to my wages and with holdings on the 17th o Feb to my tax advocate. I still have not heard form my advocate as of today. I know their extremely busy so I contacted the main number and was told by an answering representative that I an scheduled for a call back by March 10th. My question is concerning the date by the 570 code. Is that actually the date the my refund will go back in processing or the date that the review is over? Is that the date that the 570 code has to be revisited for some type of resolution? I know dates aren’t just placed for the fun it, I just wanted your insight and knowledge of the placement for these dates next to these codes.

    Thanks in advance

    -Denise

  33. On my transcript I got a cycle posted 20150705, received date April 15,2015 what do this mean

    • Hi Brittany, Almost everyone will have that April 15th date on their account transcripts. These codes are internal transaction codes used by the IRS to chart the flow of the money and transactions associated with the returns. Do you have a 846 Code or 570 Code?

  34. I don’t now I call the IRS last week and ask for a copy of my transcripts

  35. I can’t look at my transcript online.. Do you know what do the cycle mean

  36. there is hope. i went from 970/571 for weeks to 846 refund issued today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the new codes i have are:

    i got a 571 additional action completed

    with 846 refund issued it has a date of march 23, 2015 with the full amount i am expecting

    now can you tell me if this refund is a dd as i requested when i efiled or is this a paper check?

    however so glad that the refund issued is now on my transcripts!!!

    hope everyone gets the update they are praying for!

      • they sent a check…..just like i thought

        anyone over 10,000 will be getting a check who had 970/571 codes on their transcripts

        sucks…but better knowing than not knowing imo

        • Hey there. I am just curious I know on March 4th you stated your transcripts showed a code of 846 for refund issued. Have you received your refund? I am just curious approx. how long it takes to receive the check by mail. The website says a few weeks but I am hoping its nowhere near as long.

          Thank you in advance.

          • Do you know how long it takes to receive the check? I cannot get ahold of anyone. I misread the date originally. Thought it was 2/4 not 3/4 which was yesterday. LOL

          • Holly what is your cycle code ? and when did your transcript update with a 846 Code?

  37. No reply? thanks anyways.

  38. FILED ON 2/1

    PLEASE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS SITUATION AND I HOPE ANYONE IN THE SAME BOAT THAT YOU WILL GET AN UPDATE SOON…. POSITIVE ENERGY TO ALL

  39. Did any one get their refunds with cycle code 20150805 ? Also Tavorro when will I get my refund with cycle code 20150805 and code 570 any chance of tomorrow ? I responded to their letter for Healthcare Credits , I filed Jan 20, it’s now March 4th this is depressing lol

  40. not sure how many individuals have noticed the CNN report re: delayed refunds due to HealthCare Credit, but it is worth checking out. It could help alot of people understand the delay in receiving their refund. I got a partial refund yesterday and the premium tax credit is being held for further review. Evidently, the IRS has instructed their representatives not to disclose the reason fo the delay which explains the confusion. btw, WMR still shows that my return is being reviewed even though part of my $$ is already in the bank. I hope this is helpful and encouraging.

    Tavorro,
    your blog was most informative and spot on re: transcripts and codes. thank you for this service.

  41. Hey there! I’m frustrated because I too, was an early filer and I recieved a 4464C letter. This letter states that they are seeking more info and to wait 60 days. I filed 1/16 and was accepted the same day. I have gotten my state taxes back but no federal. I looked at my tax transcript and noticed 2 570 codes with dates 3-2-15 and 3-9-15 next to them. I looked on my return transcript and near every number provided on my return, there was the exact same number saying “per computer”. Does this mean that all of my information has been verified? What else could they be looking for? I have to purchase a new car and file chaper 7 bankruptcy with my refund, so waiting is horrible right now! My 60 days will be complete by 3-24-15 but I don’t even have 1 code saying a letter was initially sent out, nor one stating that another letter is coming. I’m trying to get a better understanding because the IRS hasn’t given me any information, and I’d like to know how long I will be waiting (approximately). Please help me if you can! Thank you.

  42. good morning

    does any one know what prompts to press once you call the irs to get someone on the phone? i can’t even make it to a waiting que….

  43. hello i filed my fiance 2012 taxes and the transcript date is 20150805 (March 16,2015) with 846 code next to it. He should have received his refund today correct? Has anyone else with this cycle date not received the refund.

    Finally received Refund ! Thanks for your tips Tavorro!

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

    • Nancy- I have had the same thing happen. I had my refund scheduled to be deposited into my fiance’s account and due to the account not being in my name I believe they are going to issue a check. The information is what I have found online but cannot get through to anyone to actually speak with anyone. I hope they sent the check right away.
      Even though most I found said could take up to several weeks to receive.

      My question is will they update the Wheres my refund site? with a correct date of when they mail the check? Do they automatically mail the check?

      How do we know?

    • Holly – the account is in his name however I wonder if because it is for a previous year if they will not direct deposit and send paper check.. So frustrating.

    • Call the number I posted above! never a long wait for some reason!

  45. i updated on transcripts Tuesday morning with a 571 replacing my 570. Then with an 826 money I owed from last year. Now a 971? My cycle code is 20150801? Any help?

  46. I have a 20150805. 03/16/2015 I signed up for DD but on website WMR it says my refund will be mailed by 03/06/2015 I have 846 as a code I’m confused is it getting DD or paper check and how long before I receive it

  47. I have code 20150805 & 846 on my transcript. ….

    Still no refund to the netspend card I clicked for as my choice of refund.
    Help!? Where is it?:(

    Finally received Refund after a few days delay, may have been due to Netspend not IRS.

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

    • If you had fees taken out they go through that first and can take 2 to 5 days

    • Dominic Checchia

      Call the number on the back of the card and see if netspend has it on hold… If u have a big amount on ur refund they might hold it until u call and verify a few things.

      • If my transcripts has 846 then has 570, what exactly does it mean? It has the negative and the amount along with a cycle date. Should I be worried??

  48. My cycle is 20150703.
    Received date April 15th, 2015.
    I have a 570 code with a date of 3/9/15.
    Any help? When will I receive my refund?

    Refund Received Tavorro Tax Tips

  49. i have a cycle code of 20150603 received a letter stating march 9th 2015 received also received a date of march 2nd rejected by bank code150 and some other 971 dont know what to think never had this happen before

  50. I filed on 1/22. Then was asked (again – it was there /correct the 1st time) for the health insurance form, so I faxed it on 2/13. I just checked for a transcript and there is one – with cycle 20150905. There are several codes, but the last says 846 refund issue 3/23- but it’s only for $180. The amount I expected, and the amount it says at the top of the transcript -$6784 , and by doing the math throughout the transcript is that my refund $6784. Should I expect only $180?

  51. Is the person still here to answer the questions?

  52. I have to codes 570 and 846 and the date 03/10/2015 but didn’t get anything. Should I be worried at all. Kinda of getting impatient.

  53. I filed on jan 29th, got accepted jan 30th. Cycle20150505 2/23…code 570 for about 3 weeks now….wmr is mia…no triple d’s or even an a cup 🙁

  54. Psssss..i think Mr.tavarro got lost with the system glitch o_O

  55. Short recap:
    Efiled Jan 26th
    Waited 21 days and called IRS and had to verify identity.

    Transcript with code 570 and date of March 9th next to it. Has not changed for 3 weeks.

    Anyone in the same situation?

    Thanks

  58. still waiting for a response ….my transcripts haven’t changed since they were posted

    Hello i have tax codes 150 tax cycle 20150505 date 2-23-15
    also tax codes 766-570-768 and 420 called the tax advocate and they transferred me to the irs twice and all they said was nothing is wrong and i have to wait until its done processing..my AS OF date is March 23-15..im just a sitting duck at this point with no answers…

    i filed with turbo tax on Jan 21 and was accepted the next day ..the app said i would receive it by Feb 20..i saw on another site that turbo tax is now being investigated not sure if it true or not but i know im still waiting…does anyone else have this audit 420 (examination of tax return) code???

    please help!!!!

    • Have you gotten a letter from the IRS – They should have sent you a letter. I would also contact the IRS immediately and request a TAX Advocate. Also, did you purchase any audit support from TurboTax? Keep us posted. I don’t know what city you are in but I might would consider (AFTER you have talked with a Tax advocate) going into one of the local offices to try to get this resolved.

  59. hello, just trying to get a little feedback,I filed 0n the y02/19th , was accepted on the 02/23 called irs today and found out they sent a letter stating that I had to verify my identity which i completed today, was not able to view my transcripts until today but it says no return filed but i can view the account transcript which has partial w2 info a date of 03/23/15 i’m thinking that is the 21 day limit which has …my question to you sir is will i be seeing an update this week you think being that the rep told me everything else is complete on my end.

    • Yes, this is normal to see when they are in the middle of processing you return – I would check again daily until Friday and see if your transcript updates. If it is not updated by Friday, I would call and request a tax advocate. They can help expedite your return.

      • I verified my id on 2/19. I still have a 570 code even after calling back 2/25 and being told everything was verified and to wait 6-8wks. Almost 4wks now. Hope everything is ok. Just worried, transcript had a processing date of 3/16. I cant see my wage transcript though. I just dont know whats going on.

        • It is not important to see the wage transcript. Sometimes that does not update until July! It is the last to update. The “Account transcript” is the one you should be concerned with. When is the last time you checked your account transcript. We have had over many users report in today that not only did their account transcript update but so did their WMR! Keep us posted!

  60. I have 2 a 570 code with date 03232015 971 033015 and then 570 again 0330015? What does that mean? Are they still processing it and I will get it by then date given?

  61. i spoke with a lady that assign a tax advocate to you so they can contact me ..she told me because i have the code 420 it will take the irs 8 months to resolve my case…my tax lady has been saying i had a janitorial business for the past four year and i didnt know until this year because of this year ..after reading all the comments and wondering about the delay i decided to look..i tried to contact the tax lady now she wont even call me back ..i feel so wronged..so today im going to the irs and see if the can find out who this woman is that was referred to me by a ex friend…i feel so dumb

  62. I filed my taxes Feb 18, accepted that day WMR site went from accepted to approved within a week,,paper check to be mailed March 2,, transcripts say refund received 20150801 ,3-16-2015,, have the 846 refund code processing date of 3-16-2015,,OK here is my question what is the hold up with my refund? Surely if it was mailed on March 2nd I should have receieved it by now?? I’m very confused and did call the IRS last week and they told me everything looks fine,what date should I go by? The WMR date of 3-2-2015 or my transcript date of 3-16-2015? Please help,,thanks

  63. Good Afternoon Tavorro, I’m at a loss now as to what might be going on! As stated before, filed/accepted February 8th, bars disappeared February 26th, account transcript still says “no return filed”!?!?

  64. I filed my taxes around feb 27th and i tried to pull my transcript and it says that my taxes have not been filed and the bars are gone on the WMR and that says its still being processed can you help me please because I know nothing and need money to move

  65. I filed on 1/30 and received a wage verification letter 2/18 sent in my W-2 information then received another letter on 3/10 for more wage information. WMR is showing received but processing. Transcript has codes 806, 766, 971, 570, 571 and 846. All of the dates listed are 4/15 except the 846 shows 4/6/15 with an offset amount. My cycle code is showing 20151005 do I still have to wait all the way until 4/6 for my refund to be direct deposit any help would be great this has been the longest stressful tax year ever..

    Thanks Lady B

    • Great news!! You are in great shape !! Did you get your DD on Friday? Please keep us posted!

      • I received a DD on Saturday saying you will receive a notice that explains the changes to my tax return and ” You should receive your notice and balance of your refund by March 30th” So I guess I have to wait and see what happens on the 30th hoping for sooner.

    • They auto send out letters each time your file is updated. It sounds like you have fallen into the same loop many did but lucky for you I expect your file will update by Tuesday! Do not be worried. Did you by chance have education or healthcare credits that needed to be verified? There are three options open to you – you can call the IRS and ask for a supervisor, or request a FREE Tax advocate be assigned to you or even visit the IRS at the office in your city and meet with someone face to face. Most are finding the TAX Advocate route the best option because they have the ability to expedite your refund! Please keep us posted.

      The IRS # Is 800-829-1040.

There are three options open to you – you can call the IRS and ask for a supervisor, or request a FREE Tax advocate be assigned to you or even visit the IRS at the office in your city and meet with someone face to face. Most are finding the TAX Advocate route the best option because they have the ability to expedite your refund! Please keep us posted. IRS # 800-820-1040

  68. my tax issue still hasnt been resolved i stayed there for 5 hours i was 7 numbers away from being called when 2 females decide they want to start arguing with each other and they closed the office down i cant win for losing ..still no update on my transcripts ..the tax lady called me while i was at the irs office and told me if i havent received a letter from the auditors office then i shouldnt worry and rambled on about nothing with the attitude she always has..and still no letter from the irs about my 420 or 570 code im so heartbroken idk what to do i have a 3 day notic the advocate told me when i get an eviction is when they can help me with my hardship

    • Dojah, I hate to say this after the experience you had, but I would go back and sit down with someone face to face. In your situation that really is your best route. I would also ask for a supervisor at the tax advocate office. You can also get your landlord to write a letter to the IRS (which you would then fax to them) indicating you are subject to eviction if you do not get this resolved. That will help to expedite the process manually. http://blog.tavorro.com/taxpayer-advocate-faq/

      • Thank you Tavarro im the irs office again now :'( :'( :'( :'( after waiting outside for 2. Hours before they let us in just to stand in line..inside now im waiting for my number to be called hopefully before my kids get out of school lol

  69. update: well after waiting 5 hours i was told by the irs that i was sent out a letter by the examination department on the 20th of March and i have to wait until i get the letter so see what i can do to resolve this issue..the man at the irs office said it might have something to do with my dependents (my 3 children) which we have claimed for the pass 4 years and he gave me the direct number to call

  70. I received a letter saying that they needed no additional information from me at this time and they were just letting me know that my account has been on hold. My last date is March 30, 2015. Should everything be resolved by then? Please let me know. I see you have been a great help to others!

    • Your transcripts haven’t updated?

    • Tam, That date they give you on your account transcript and in the letter is a “Worst case scenario date” they give everyone. Have you checked to see if your account transcript updated yesterday or today? Please update us and keep us posted!

      • No update. Everything’s still the same Tavorro. I try not to check everyday. I’ll check again by the end of the month since the last date is March 30, 2015. Hopefully something change by then!

  71. Hi,,Tavorro,,
    Just wondering if it is possible that if my refund check was sent out according to the WMR site on March 2nd 2015, how long should it take to actually get to me? As of today 3/25/2015 still no check?? Does it normally take this long?

  72. Is it possible that my refund went into review after I verified my identity? No changes on transcript. Still just a 570 code. I called Irs and the lady said allow 60 days for review. I originaIly filed jan 23rd and was accepted. I received a letter and verified my id on feb 19. Idk whats going on or what to do. Its all confusing and my bday is 2 days away. Paid bills in hopes of this finally posting to my account and now im gonna just do nothing bcuz the little money I do have isnt for enjoying my bday. But im blessed to see another year. Hopefully the irs gets things in order soon.

  73. Hi I was wondering if you could give me some insight. I have seen all the posts and comments and all have been so helpful but I am still a little confused. I filed on 2/9 and up until the 21st day I had one bar on WMR. On the 21st day it disappeared and I had the message “processing a date will be provided…”. On 3/14 I received a letter to verify my ID which I did successfully on that day. I have never been able to view transcripts (it always said info didn’t match their records) until I tried this morning and this is what I have:
    150 Cycle 20151105 $1577
    766 Credit to account 4-5 $1106
    768 EIC 4-15 $4669
    570 4-6 0.00
    None of these amounts reflect what I thought my refund was supposed to be (which was 4198). If i understood correctly what I have read the cycle date is today…And I am assuming the 570 code has to do with the fact that I had to ID verify….but I am just so confused and really in need of this money. I have a phone that has a limited number of minutes which have been used up just trying to call the IRS…Any insight would really be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

  74. what does cycle code 20150905 mean? and how long does it typically take for the 570 code to go off ?

    • I know that cycle code 20150905 is March 12th. Im not sure about the 570 codes. Did you have to verify your id? I’ve heard people say that the codes are usually cleared within 7-10 days, but I also think it depends on why you have the code.

  75. What does a cp05 letter mean?

    • It’s basically telling you your refund is on hold and they’re still processing and they don’t need any information from you at this time. I received one as well. It’s a good thing.

      • Yes, The 5 most common reasons for the 570/971 hold are: Incorrect Social Security numbers, or the need for Education, Healthcare, or ID Verification, math errors, missing or incomplete forms, and EIC verification.

      • even though it has a date of 3/30 i received the cp05 this past Saturday and my transcripts have 3/30?

  76. Hi everyone anything new today?? I can’t veiw my transcript as of now but as of yesterday no
    Update from 571 ;(

    • Veronica, I would check for updates Tuesday thru Saturday.

      • I was accepted Feb 12
        It’ is the 31st. Of. March and Still no update. IRS volume is always to high! So you can’t talk to anyone 🙁 This is crazy my codes are the average normal codes what is the hold up

        Code: 150 Date:3-23-2015
        Code: 806 Date:4-15-2015
        Code: 570 Date:3-23-2015
        Code: 971 Date:3-30-2015
        Code: 570 Date:3-30-2015

        Cycle code 20150901

        I was accepted 2/12/15 I got a 4464C letter under review February 23 Saying no additional information needed at this time.
        today March 20 I recieved a CP05 Letter saying that I still don’t need to send them anything
        Notice Date: March 30, 2015
        Your caller id: xxxxxx

    • Have you gotten your 846 yet? I’m stoke at 571 for three weeks now.

  77. no update for me @ Veronica – my cycle code is 20150703 which i should have had a refund by 2/23. 1st i had 570 3/09 and now i have 570 3/30… im not holding my breath because im pretty sure nothing will have anytime soon – it will prob get pushed back again or never happen.

    • this kind of crazy & weird what in the world is going on?

      • Have Your account transcripts updated since last time?

        • Tam, Have you had an update? If not, please check tomorrow. If you don’t have an update by tomorrow, please let us know so we can put you in direct contact with our IRS Taxpayer Advocate Representative. Thanks!

        • Tam no mines hasn’t moved in 3weekd now I’m just stuck on 570 I was accepted feb 12 🙁 I even called and waited over an hour just to hear I have to wait until at least April 20 to hear anything

          • I never had to wait this long to get a tax refund. This is ridiculous.

          • There have been a lot of issues this year, staffing shortages at the IRS, new forms (Healthcare) and there have been more that have been asked to ID Verify. In addition, education credit verification delays have been longer this year as well.

          • Heather April 8, 2015 at 1:00 pm
            Has anyone with 2 570 codes in March updated or receive their refund? My dates were 3/16 and 3/30 I’m now blocked from seeing my transcript online and requested one by mail on 3/31 and still haven’t received it. I’m really curious to see if anyone has a 3rd 570 with another date

          • I have 1 570. My dates were 3-23 and now 4-6. They said Tuesday when I called again I shld see an update around the 20th.. that makes a month

          • Sorry, 2 months since the 570, and having to Id verify

    • Jayme, are you saying your transcript has received no update since 3/09? Have you tried getting a tax advocate involved or calling the IRS?
      Technically they are supposed to update your transcript weekly, there is an actual report that is generated that lists all unresolved returns. This report is then circulated among management at a variety of levels to ensure returns are being processed in a timely manner. Can I swear that this occurs every week? NO, but we were told by our contacts at the IRS and the Tax Advocate Office that this is their standard operating procedure.

  78. apparently they’re now telling us to wait an additional 45 days past the 60 days….. im done.

    • Wow seriously, omg this is the worst. Been trying to get a straight answer for 2 months now. This is just ridiculous. I havent spoken to anyone today but was expecting to be told we would have to wait more time.

    • Jayme, I know you are frustrated, I would be too. Do you have an actual person assigned to you at the IRS or the Tax advocates office? You have the right to have a single point of contact at either office to assist you with your refund. If you would like for us to we can put you in contact with one of our reps from the IRS. We speak with them daily and they are usually very helpful.

    • Dominic Checchia

      At jayme yup that’s exactly what i was told yesterday. they are just bs-ing now making that first people to file are the last too receive there money, its a joke!!! i Straight up spazed out and yelled at the rep i talked to and it’s not even her fault.

      • @Dominic – tell me about it… im completely done – at this point im like i just wont be getting a refund this year… people that filed after me getting their money and all i get is another 570 code and somebody just trying to get me off the phone

  79. No update since since they changed my as of date to apr. 6 570 CODE 3-23 $0.00 and processing 3-23 CALL irs they said nothing new has been issued ID verified on 2-27 any suggestions

    • Are you absolutely positive that the ID Verify went through. There have been a number of people that ID Verified and it did not process as completed.

      Also Here is a list of possible 570 Code issues: Some of which require no further information from you!

      A 570 Code simply means they need to verify, correct, or update some information on your return. Every individual’s return is different, so the code can mean different things depending on the taxpayer. We recommend you do the following things:

      1. Check your return for errors or omissions – see more info here:

      http://blog.tavorro.com/eight-common-tax-filing-errors-to-avoid/

      2. Check to make sure your 1095A information is correct – Some taxpayers received incorrect 1095a’s!

      http://blog.tavorro.com/what-consumers-need-to-know-about-corrected-1095as/

      Additional Reasons Your Return May be Delayed!

      1. Education credits or healthcare credits that needed verification.

      2. EIC Verification

      3. ID Verify – (Which I Understand you completed – I would double check this is truly showing complete by calling the IRS at 800-829-1040.)

      Please keep us updated and let us know if you need anything else.

      • So how are healthcare or education credits determined and is it something I have to do on my end? Idk if that is the hold up in my case. But my transcript has not changed since 2/19.

        • Isaac – Who did you file with? Is more than one person on your return? Did you or anyone on your return have a 1095a? (Healthcare form from Healthcare.gov)? or you or anyone on your return have an educational credit?

  80. I filed my tax return on January 30, 2015 along with an injured spouse form for my husband having past due child support. Today I checked my tax transcript and see the 846 code twice. Why are their 2?

  81. Hi my name is Kim and I file my taxes on 2/1/15 I was informed that I didnt start processing until 2/3/2015. I have a cycle code 20150703 which I am assuming that it has came and pass. Last yr. i file on 4/1/2015 and got it back by the 12th. I did not have health insurance but i had applied for medicade for my 2 disable nephew that i support. I had told the taxs prep that i did not have insurrance and that it was being processed for my medicade. Anyway on 2/23/15 my bars was gone and i was informed that a notice was issued on 3/9. Received notice and dated 3/16 i had 971 code and 570 code code 570 date 3/9 971 date 3/16 after receiving that notice, i got another code 570 date 3/30. i have contact the irs 4 time then just said forget it and contacted a advocated. doing my phone call i found about a 1099 int that i had no clue about then i was told that it was only 317 and that it was nothing alarming and that everything look fine i have not spoke with my taxs advocate as of yet. i ask the irs do i need to send in anything nothing has been required but im about to get thrown out my home i really dont know what these date mean and when can i expect some new also my notice date 4/30 will be complete i have been patient and have a great faith just a little off balances

  82. Hello, I filed my taxes and was accepted on 2/18. The bars on WMR disappeared on 3/1. I was able to view my transcripts on 3/5. My transcript cycle code is 20151005. Which I found out is a direct deposit date of March 19th. I know these are not accurate. I received three transcript codes. A 150, 806 and the dreaded 570. It is now April 6th, I have not received anything from the IRS…and no updates on my transcript. And it is going on the 50th day since I was accepted. I am extremely concerned on what possibly could be going wrong. I guess, is it finally time to call them? Will I actually get any decent answers from them?

  83. Has anyone with 2 570 codes in March updated or receive their refund? My dates were 3/16 and 3/30 I’m now blocked from seeing my transcript online and requested one by mail on 3/31 and still haven’t received it. I’m really curious to see if anyone has a 3rd 570 with another date

    • Me I’m stuck on 2 570 codes for a month now

      • my husband had 2 570 codes last year and it was just a id processing delay but we are stuck too right now waitng over 8 weeks with a code 570 150 and that’s it all refund say – next to amount cycle 20151305 ?? any answers when he will get refund and a date of 04/15/2015/04/20/2015

        • Francine, When is the last time you checked your account transcript? Who did you file with? Also, Were you asked to ID Verify and have you verified with the IRS that it went through if you were asked to verify? Check your account transcript again today please and let us know what it says! Thanks!

          • Tavorro it says the same thing 150 code also yes we had to verify twice the seconed time lady said it was going for processing date also theres a date od 04/20/2015 timet least 4 weeks accounting should update I know they updated it because 3 weeks ago I was not able to look at a transcript but I see all transcripts and have a minus sign of the refund we suppose to get -1,694whats going to happen when do we get our refund

  84. Hey tavarro what should I do now? I can never get through to the irs

  85. hi I have a question the id verify did not go through the first time 4 weeks ago we called back and the lady told my husband to wait 6 weeks befoe 4 days ago we had no transcripts now we do with codes 150 570 806 wich he had in the past but he has a cycle date of 20151305 anything please?

  86. I’m wondering if you can help me, spoke to its rep they told me that they finally processed my return on March 28 even though I failed on feb 11, I was able to view transcipt but I have code 570 as the last code, and a date of April 20,. I don’t understand what that means. Rep told me i was fine. I didn’t have to submit a 8962 for health care credits. I’m worried it’s been almost 3 months.

  87. Did everyone get their refunds or updates and disappear?

  88. So my situation is this. I filed Feb 24th. After 2 weeks of my status saying received on WMR, my bars disappeared and said still being processed, and a date will be provided when available. . I have been patient up until today. So I gave them a call. Here the rep told me that they want me to the ID VERIFY. I said are u kidding me? 6 weeks has passed, no letter, no instructions online to call, nothing on my transcript. This is ridiculous.

    • Krystl – This has happened to so many – that is why we encourage everyone to try to pull their account transcript and see if they have a 570 code – If you have this code, in most cases you need to either ID Verify or you have healthcare or education credits that need to be verified. In addition, we ask that you please call back 24 hours after you ID Verify and make sure the verification is reflected accurately on your account.

  89. Tavorro

    So to update you from 2 days ago:
    I’m not being told anything new. But, as of this morning on my transcript, the “as of date” changed again. From April 6 to April 13th.?

    • Heather the date changing is actually a good sign – it means it’s actually in the process and being updated and it’s delay is being reported internally on various management reports that are circulated to ensure timely processing of tax returns.

      • Awesome! ! Thanks for your reply. 🙂

      • Tavorro,
        Ok this is weird. Yesterday when I told u that my as of date changed on the transcript from the 6th to 13th. Well, this morning I checked, and it is back to April 6th?? I’m confused lol. still showing the 570 code with no update to. Do u know why the date wld go back to the previous date? I thought I was seeing things and going nuts. Haha

  90. Hi
    I just wanted to make a comment regarding my sisters situation. So she filed Feb 24th. Had the received bar on WMR for 2 weeks. The disappeared with the generic message saying a refund date will be provided when available. So, she waited it out. Until yesterday and called. Here She Is being told now she has to IDVerify. 6 weeks passed. There were no codes, instructions to call, no letter. Account Transcripts were blank. Is this normal? The agent even said they didn’t send a letter out yet.

    • Heather that is very unusual. Who did your sister file her taxes with? What day does it show her tax return was accepted?

      • Tavorro
        she filed with taxslayer. And was accepted the very same day. I thought it was unusual as well. She hasn’t done the ID verify yet I don’t think.

  91. Lakita, 420 is examination code and 841 they cancelled the refund check

  92. Hello Tavorro, my name is Angel. I had processed my taxes fir 2014 on Feb. 16, 2015. Ever since then I have been checking my status through the IRS Where’s my Refund? Sometime in late February I had noticed the lines had disappeared and ever since then it has only been saying the my refund is still processing. After a couple of days I did some research and found out about checking my transcript in which I did. In my transcript I noticed that it says that my return was processed on Feb. 23, 2015. Then it says Returned due date or return received date (whichever is later) April 15, 2015. Then for the code explanation my transcript says the following:
    150 TAX RETURN FILED 20150505 2/23/2015
    806 W-2 OR 1099 WITHHOLDING 4/15/2015
    766 CREDIT TO YOUR ACCOUNT 4/15/2015
    766 CREDIT TO YOUR ACCOUNT 4/15/2015
    768 EARNED INCOME CREDIT 4/15/2015
    766 CREDIT TO YOUR ACCOUNT 4/15/2015
    570 ADDITIONAL ACCOUNT ACTION PENDING 2/23/2015
    971 NOTICE ISSUED 3/2/2015
    Ever since then I had called the IRS and they stated that a letter should be on the way. I patiently waited for the letter and received on 3/3/2015. The letter just basically states that no action is required at this time and that a verification process is being done. That my process should be completed by April 16, 2015. I then called back the IRS and they said that all that I could do is wait. About 2 weeks later my friend told me that he went to an IRS office and had to be verified. A week after his verification he was already advised that he will be receiving his refund. After finding that out I called IRS again and asked them for my status. They were not very helpful and told me the same story that I have to wait till April 16, 2015 like the letter says. Then I asked if I needed to be verified because that is what my friend had done. After I asked the representative said yes that was the main problem why my account is on hold. The thing is that I had to ask to get that answer from him. Anyway, he gave me a phone number to call to go through the verification process and that I did not need to go to an office to do this just call the number. I then called the number and was able to complete the verification process on Wednesday April 1, 2015. After my verification process was complete I was told that everything is okay now but I have to wait an additional 6 weeks for everything to be approved. I did this on April 1, 2015 so to me that means that if I have to wait 6 more weeks that will be way passed the April 16, 2015 that the letter states. I then continued doing research and read your advice to others on here. I decided to call after reading one of your posts that it should not take that long and that the tax transcripts should technically be updated every 24 hours. Mine has not been updated since mid February. I called the irs once again and they said again that I have to wait 6 weeks. I then asked for a tax advocate and they gave me a number. I called and the tax advocate gave me the same story about 6 weeks. I am counting on my money to pay my bills off that I need to pay. Tavorro this is very frustrating. Is there anything that you can do to help please?

  93. Ok efile on 4/1/2015 and I have been seeing no bats and topic 152 nothing has been mailed out to me either

  94. Ok so I filed and was accepted back on 02/23/2015, I filed with IS and expected a wait time. The initial cycle code of 20150805 has come and gone with no real surprise. My real question is my transcripts posted these codes:

    570 Additional account action pending 03-16-2015 0.00
    290 Addition tax assessed 20151405 04-27-2015 0.00

    Would this signify the release of the tc 570?

    And can I assume the new cycle date with the tc 290 may be my new DD date?

    Any insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    • No Chris, everyone has that April 15th date as it is Tax Day! The key to finding out where your refund is – is to find out why you have a 570 code. The most common reasons are the need to ID Verify, Education Credits, Healthcare Credits or EIC. Often the 570 codes resolve themselves but in your situation it has been way too long for your transcript not to have updated. Have you checked it recently? Please update and we will see how we can help!

      • I have been checking it daily for the last two weeks via the online view of trancscripts, the 570 code has been their for awhile, the 290 code just showed up last friday with the cycle code for the 16th of April.

  95. I filed jointly on Feb 15 with a injured spouse form at liberty since husbands loans had been taken the last 2 years. I do know another company took over his loans in January because they sent a letter saying he had 30 days to call and make a payment plan which he got put on a income based repayment plan and started paying prior to doing taxes. Anyways the transcript says as of today.

    CODE EXPLANATION OF TRANSACTION CYCLE DATE AMOUNT
    150 Tax return filed 20150805 03-16-2015 $0.00

    806 W-2 or 1099 withholding 04-15-2015 -$xxx.00
    766 Credit to your account 04-15-2015 -$xxx.00
    766 Credit to your account 04-15-2015 -$xxxx.00
    768 Earned income credit 04-15-2015 -$xxxx.00
    570 Additional account action pending 03-16-2015 $0.00
    290 Additional tax assessed 20151405 04-27-2015 $0.00

    846 Refund issued 04-27-2015 $xxxx.xx
    846 Refund issued 04-27-2015 $xxxx.xx

    The 570 code stayed on there for almost 2 months I know his child support posted on march 28th. Then the 846 codes showed up with 2 different amounts. Why is there 2 codes 846? and wmr is still paying processing. When should I expect it to be dd cause I cant afford to keep waiting. Also we have received no letters from irs or dept of edu. Only offset letter was for child support.

    • Amanda you should get your refund any day. Do not expect the WMR Site to update on time, so many have reported in that they get their refund before it even updates. Congrats btw on your 846 codes. I suspect you had two codes because there were two filers. Keep us posted

  96. I filed on feb 24th and was accepted the same day. Then a couple weeks later received a letter stating that they were reviewing my info and nothing was needed at the time just standby. Then within probably another week or two I received letter saying I had 3 years that were unfiled and they were holding my refund until I filed. I didn’t work 2 of the 3 years so I called and told an irs agent that and she said she verified that and I just needed to file the 1 which was from 2010. I filed that one then received 2 letters from the other 2 unfiled years basically having me sign and say why I hadn’t and wouldn’t be needing to file for those years. Now it’s been weeks since I gave them all the info they requested. I called today and a guy said they received my 2010 taxes on April 3rd but haven’t done anything with them yet as far as he can tell. I checked my transaction after I spoke with him and it shows a 570 code on March 16th which I’m sure is when they sent out the request for stuff. Then there’s a few other codes and the last one is another 570 with a date of April 20th. Can you help me understand why it has a later date on it? It also has that date closer the top to the side of the refund amounts and is says as of April 20th. I know the delay is my fault because I should have taken care of this stuff years ago obviously but I would like some insight on how long I can expect and what I can do or what those later dates mean. Thank you so much

    • Hi Morgan, these codes are all INTERNAL IRS TRANSACTION CODES – that they use to help them process returns for the millions of taxpayers every year. If you have a second 570 code and a new as of date – that is an internal indicator that your return was still processing and expects to be through processing by no later than April 20, 2015. That is their worst case scenario date and in most instances it is approved and finalized well before that date. All that to say….. having a second 570 code and a new date is better than not having both of those, and it is very common. I would check you account transcript again on Thursday and see if it updates.

  97. filed 2/2. received partial refund (total less Health Care Credit). as of date for credit has changed twice (4/13 & 4/27) and is back to the original 3/23 date. have not received a letter, have spoken to at least 1/2 dozen reps who each time have a different reason for delay. One rep two weeks ago said it was due to 1095 & 8962 requirement. I sent docs certified and they were received 4/5. yesterday I was told that the IRS sends letter within 30 days of your as of date that will advise if any further info is needed and if I don’t receive a letter by the end of the week, they will have to prepare a “referral”. totally frustrated. just want an honest answer.

    • Jeanne, You have the right to have a single point of contact at the IRS. When you speak with different people, especially in the month of April, they are so backed up and usually behind in processing returns, so you tend to get a variety of answers unfortunately. We strongly recommend you reach out to a tax advocate – They can help cut to the chase and get you an answer. What you don’t want to do is wait their 30 days and then find out they need something else. Who did you file with? I’m shocked that they let you file without a 1095a. Update and Keep us posted. You can Reach an Advocate Here – http://blog.tavorro.com/taxpayer-advocate-faq/

      • thank you responding. I had my 1095a with me when I filed and my return was based on the info provided by the marketplace. The AARP offers free tax services and I have used them for the last five years without any problems. I sent an additional copy of the 1095a & 8962 two weeks ago via certifield mail as per my conversation with an IRS representative who advised me that they needed these docs. I will contact an advocate and attempt to get an answer. once again, thank you for taking the time to respond. I will keep you updated.

      • tax advocacy office researched my claim and has advised that there is no reason why the IRS should not have refunded tax credit as yet and that I would have to speak to someone @ 800-829-1040 and question them as to why they have not done so. As far as he is concerned I do not have a valid criteria for the advocate office to act on my behalf despite my frustration and inquiry as to why he could not intervene since I am not getting any where with them. He was kind enough to listen and express his understanding, however, despite my protests, transferred me to the main #.
        after waiting for about 15 – 30 minutes I have now been advised that my return has been coded for examination, but a determination has not been made whether they will require any further info from me. so, basically, I have to sit back and wait for either an examination letter or an adjustment notice which could be a matter of days, weeks or months……ugh!
        I will keep you updated.

  98. I checked my transcripts today it still says 3/30/2015. And I look at 2012 it has dates of 2014 and 2015 with a date of 4/27/2015

  99. 20151503
    code 846

  100. I filed on 2/22
    accepted on 2/23
    bars disappeared on 3/4
    became homeless on 3/7
    waited 21 days called on the 3/23 – was told I was missing 8962 and 1095A and that after 40 days IRS will correct return from what they received and DD refund
    sent the info requested on 3/23
    called on 3/31 and they still have not logged in the info and was told to get a TA
    called for advocate on 3/31
    received call back from TA on 4/2
    faxed 8962 and 1095A to TA on 4/2
    was told that she will send to IRS advocate on 4/3
    WMR changed to the same still processing with a topic 152 on 4/10
    On 4/11 the topic 152 was removed and it went back to the still processing
    On 4/13 my Wage & Income was updated with my W2 but the other 3 still have NA

    I read posts but I have not been able to read any codes on transcripts because everything says NA; TA unable to verify information because she is very busy with other cases and I understand that. I have never been in this situation before and I am just tired of shelters and sleeping with my daughter in a car that I will lose if I can’t pay the car payment. I work from home but unable to work because I have no home. I just need answers and understanding because I never worried about when I will receive my refund but the one year that I need it this happens!!!!!!!

  103. I filed with my husband but he owed back child support so I filed injured spouse and the IRS received it on 2/23. I called them 2 weeks ago and they said they have until 4/20 to process it. I looked at my transcript this morning and it still has not updated. Do I need to wait until tmrw morning to check it? I’ve tried calling them to speak to a REAL person but have had no luck. Thank you!

  104. Hello Tavorro, I received a 4464c letter followed by a CPO5 , than on my transcripts 2 570 codes with date 3/30/15. I Called the IRS 800-829-0582 ext 633 The Male IRS rep asked me some question and stated that they have received everything they needed and he was sending a referral and it could take 45 days. I’m unable to look at my transcripts online it keeps saying I’m locked out for 24 hrs. Do you know if I will have a date soon or will I have to wait 45 more days. Also I can’t get a TA because I don’t have hardship what do you suggest I do or can you explain what is a referral and what is the exact wait time. PLEASE I FILED MY TAXES JAN 31st AND WAS ACCEPTED FEB 2nd. PLEASE PLEASE HELP

    • Having a hardship is not the only way to get a taxpayer advocate involved. Please review the steps in this article, print it out and have it handy when you call. It sounds like to us, from the information you have provided that you would qualify under two other areas as well: http://blog.tavorro.com/taxpayer-advocate-faq/

      Systemic Burden – Systemic burden cases are those in which an IRS process, system, or procedure has failed to operate as intended, and as a result the IRS has failed to timely respond to or resolve a taxpayer issue.

      Criteria 5: The taxpayer has experienced a delay of more than 30 days to resolve a tax account problem.

      Criteria 6: The taxpayer has not received a response or resolution to the problem or inquiry by the date promised.

      Criteria 7: A system or procedure has either failed to operate as intended, or failed to resolve the taxpayer’s problem or dispute within the IRS.

      Best Interest of the Taxpayer. TAS acceptance of these cases will help ensure that taxpayers receive fair and equitable treatment and that their rights as taxpayers are protected.
      In summary: Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within the IRS that can help protect your taxpayer rights. They can offer you help if your tax problem is causing a hardship, or you’ve tried but haven’t been able to resolve your problem with the IRS. If you qualify for the assistance, which is always free, they will do
      everything possible to help you.

      Please also NOTE THESE RECOMMENDATIONS! You, as a taxpayer, are entitled to certain rights. One of them is to have a single point of contact at the IRS. Be sure to always ask for their name and ID and if you aren’t getting the answers you need, then by all means very nicely request a supervisor. If they insist that a supervisor cannot help you any further than they have politely thank them and request that you be transferred to a supervisor anyway!

      Also Rabbit, it’s good that your 570 code updated. That typically is a very good sign that they are close to completing the processing of your return. I would seriously consider getting an advocate involved or at the very least calling the IRS and requesting a supervisor, not knowing who you filed with makes giving you a direct answer a bit hard, but a lot of early filers did not have correct 1095A forms (Healthcare.gov) information and others needed to have education credits verified and then others were flagged for ID Verify. It’s always best to file about a week to 10 days after they first start accepting returns in case there are any kinks they need to work out. #asktavorro

  105. I filed my taxes jointly with my husband April 9th..accepted both irs and state (ca) same day. Bars on wmr disappeared and just a notice saying still processing. Have not received refunds from either one as of 4/25/15. Checked my transcript 4/25 and I have 846 code with cycle code 20151602 and date next to it 5/18/15. Do not have any codes requiring more info or pending or whatnot. According to your chart I should receive my refund 4/27/15. Is this correct or the date on the transcript? Also, why haven’t I gotten my state return yet…do you think it could have been flagged for audit? Thank you in advance for your help

  106. I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND ANSWER, THE IRS REP DID SAY THEY HAVE VERIFIED EVERYTHING THAT THEY NEEDED AND HE WAS GOING TO SEND IT TO THE REFERRAL DEPERTMENT. I JUST DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS THE WAIT TIME BUT THEY DID SAY ABOUT 45 MORE DAY I WANTED TO KNOW IF IT WOULD BE SOONER

  107. original post-I filed on feb 24th and was accepted the same day. Then a couple weeks later received a letter stating that they were reviewing my info and nothing was needed at the time just standby. Then within probably another week or two I received letter saying I had 3 years that were unfiled and they were holding my refund until I filed. I didn’t work 2 of the 3 years so I called and told an irs agent that and she said she verified that and I just needed to file the 1 which was from 2010. I filed that one then received 2 letters from the other 2 unfiled years basically having me sign and say why I hadn’t and wouldn’t be needing to file for those years. Now it’s been weeks since I gave them all the info they requested. I called today and a guy said they received my 2010 taxes on April 3rd but haven’t done anything with them yet as far as he can tell. I checked my transaction after I spoke with him and it shows a 570 code on March 16th which I’m sure is when they sent out the request for stuff. Then there’s a few other codes and the last one is another 570 with a date of April 20th. Can you help me understand why it has a later date on it? It also has that date closer the top to the side of the refund amounts and is says as of April 20th. I know the delay is my fault because I should have taken care of this stuff years ago obviously but I would like some insight on how long I can expect and what I can do or what those later dates mean. Thank you so much

    you replied and said you thought it would change within a couple days and to check again thursday. That was almost 2 weeks ago & still no change! except the as of date twice it changed to April 27th but went back to the 20th both times and currently says the 20th. I’m not sure if that was a weird glitch or what …. unlikely though now that it happened twice. What would you suggest I do now?

  108. I filed on 3/9/15 i called before my 21 days was up only to get idverify i did that on the 31 of march and i called back like april 9th they said it was put back in processing on april 1 i can order my transcripts by mail so i received both and i have a 570 code with date 4/27/15 . Wats the date beside it for?

  109. I filed on 3/6, showed a refund date of 3/13. On 3/11, refund date disappeared and notice to call IRS. IRS said I would receive a letter. My tax transcripts showed 846 3/30 refund issued followed by 841 3/30 refund cancelled. No 570 code or anything else. Received a letter to verify ID on 3/31 and did so that day. Verified online and was told to wait 6 weeks. Last week, my “as of” date changed from 3/30 to 5/11. The only codes are still the 846 and 841. Does this mean that it will be issued on 5/11, or is that just because it will be the 6 week mark and I will get a new date then?

  110. I filed in February. Had 2 570 codes appear on my transcript, got a notice saying I didnt file in 2010 so they were holding my refund until I filed that. Filed that at the end of march, transcript shows they recieved it April 3rd then barely processed it last Friday. Shows they finished and sent a notice which I havent received as of yet. But the as of/processing date is May 25th. The cycle code is 20150805. On my 2014 transcript the 570 codes said additional action pending then when they processed the 2010 return they updated the 2014 transcript with a 571 code that says additional action completed 5-25-2015. As of date is also May 25th and the cycle code is also 20150805. Still no 846 . I know there was a balance from the 2010 that will be deducted from the 2014 return, It is less than the total return though so I will still receive a 2014 refund. How long would you think until they take that and issue the remainder of my 2014 return?

    • M Kelly, It has really been way to long. This should have been resolved by now especially since you have the 2 570 codes. The encouraging sign is that they gave you the “worst case scenario date” of May 25th. This typically means that you will receive your refund no later than the 21st based on all the information you provided. I would also expect your account transcript to update with an 846 code either before Saturday or by the 19th of May as well. If you need this expedited it is possible with all the delays to qualify for the FREE Tax Advocate help even if you do not have a hardship.

  111. I have never spent so much time on hold as I have with the IRS this tax season. I filed on April 15, and my return was received the same day, and my transcript shows a code of 20151802. 21 days came and went, and then I received a letter from the IRS that my return was undergoing additional review to verify income, and that I should allow up to 60 days from the date of the letter to receive my refund.

    I called the IRS to ask what I could do to help with the income verification, and was told that my employer hadn’t submitted my W2 to the Social Security Administration, and that this is what they are looking for to verify income. Spoke with my company’s bookkeeper, who showed me that the W2s were sent in to SSA on 1/28/15. Called the SSA, and they were baffled. They said that they have until September to post the previous year’s earnings, and they’d never heard of the IRS holding a refund for that reason. They felt that whomever I spoke with at the IRS was mistaken and recommended I call them back.

    Called the IRS back and after getting hung up on (twice!), finally spoke to a very nice lady who took a look at my file. She said that my withholding was higher than normal. I agreed, but explained that I’d rather make sure I get a refund when tax time rolls around than get hit with a tax bill. She then explained that because my withholding percentage was higher, they wanted to verify my income and again said that they were waiting on the SSA to post my earnings. She recommended I call the SSA. Again.

    Called SSA again, and they, again, very nicely explained that as much as they’d like to help, they have 50,000,000 earnings to post, and can’t expedite any particular one. She was also astounded that the IRS would hold a refund when they may very well not post my earnings before September. She said “They have your W2 — that’s what we will be posting!”

    I really do not earn a lot of money, and I do have a higher percentage withheld — sort of a poor man’s savings plan. Sure, I’m loaning the Federal Government my money all year, interest free, but I’m also assuring I get something back so I can take my kids somewhere over the summer. I guess not this year. Thanks a lot, IRS.

    • Wow Barry, first let me thank you for taking the time to explain your situation. Second, I’m astounded, like you are, that the two agencies (IRS and SSA) are not working more in sync with each other. Your withholding circumstances are not that unusual, many individuals do as you did and have more withheld to insure that they get money back instead of owing come April 15th. On your transcript, did you have a 570 and 971 code and can you tell me please if they have updated your transcript at all since you first checked it? (For instance, do you have two 570 codes?) You have several options, you can get a taxpayer advocate involved. Often, they can cut through the nonsense and help expedite your return. The criteria for qualifying for this help can be found here: Hardship is not the only criteria for qualifying…… so you could qualify under the delay criteria. http://blog.tavorro.com/taxpayer-advocate-faq/

      Best Interest of the Taxpayer. TAS acceptance of these cases will help ensure that taxpayers receive fair and equitable treatment and that their rights as taxpayers are protected.

      Criteria 8: The manner in which the tax laws are being administered raises considerations of equity, or has impaired or will impair the taxpayer’s rights.

      At this point, contacting a taxpayer advocate seems to be your best option. I would print out the article I linked to you and have it handy when you call so you can explain why you feel like you qualify for the expedited processing. I know all of the waiting and excuses can be very frustrating to anybody in your situation, but persistence pays off!!

      The only other options at this point would be to call the IRS back and request a supervisor, or to drop by your local IRS office and talk with someone face to face. I know both of those options are probably not appealing to you but there is no legitimate reason you should have to wait for your refund. Some of the local offices allow you to make an appointment now. See article here about the new appointment options: http://blog.tavorro.com/irs-begins-limited-test-of-providing-appointments-at-10-walk-in-locations/

      If you will update this post by sharing your city and state I can try to get you a supervisors name and number for your state for you to contact.

      • Thank you so much for your response! I have a 570 code, but not the 971. As of today, my transcript has not been updated since May 11. Located outside of Philadelphia, PA. Thanks again, very much!

        • Barry – Have you checked your transcript today? Again the 570 and 971 codes are not at all unusual, the key is to determine if information is needed from you or if it is just a verification or minor error that they are looking into. All usually resolve pretty quickly but it is key to make sure they don’t need you to do the Identity Verification. If they need you to do that, you can go ahead and do that before you get the letter from them.

          • Yes, I checked it and still no change — just the single 570 code. When I spoke with an IRS rep a week ago they said ID verification was not an issue, it was just the income verification.

            I called the tax advocate line yesterday, and the woman I spoke to said that she wouldn’t do anything to help me unless I could prove that I was under imminent danger of losing my home, utilities, or car repossession.

            She said that if an IRS rep told me they were waiting for SSA to post earnings so they could verify income, then that’s what I would have to do. The fact that they may not post my earnings until September was irrelevant.

            I tried talking to her about the systemic burden and delay criteria from the taxpayer advocate faq, and she said that all that has changed for this year and wasn’t relevant. After being on hold for over 50 minutes to talk to an advocate, she made it very clear that she had no interest in helping and just wanted me off the phone.

            My transcript still shows an “as of” date of May 11, so I suppose that means no one has worked on it at all.

            It has a “processing date” of May 25, but my understanding is that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.

            I have also checked SSA’s website and my 2014 earnings still haven’t posted.

            I couldn’t believe the inconsiderate treatment I received from the tax advocate. No, I’m not about to lose my home, but I did have to replace a broken hot water heater unexpectedly and I am now a broke single dad. I realize that other people are in much worse circumstances, but it’s still my money, and I need it.

            I appreciate the concern you’ve shown — it’s much, much more than I’ve received from anyone at the IRS.

          • Hi Barry, just following up to see if you heard anything or got your refund. I hate to say this but at times you may just need to hang up and call back and get a different representative on the phonne. You shouldn’t “HAVE” to do that but unfortunately sometimes this is the best solution. Keep us posted!

    SO TAVORRO, here is my situation…

    I filed – received XXXX.XX back amended months ago and am getting another XXXX.XX back BUT in the meantime MOVED addresses. I was hopeful that the USPS would forward my return – however, they didn’t… pulled my transcript Saturday after what seemed to be a big update on Friday the 15th of MAY. It gave me a code meaning refund returned to IRS then under that it states 846 REFUND ISSUED (a second time, with my new address I believe which has been updated since moving with the IRS) my question is WHY does it say 06-01 JUNE 1 to the right of refund issued 846 XXXX.XX refund. WILL I GET IT BEFORE JUNE 1st has it been mailed to me yet? NO, I am not getting a DD.

    THANKS!!! (FYI my original filing states a DD of 2-16 but I checked my bank acct and it was put in 2-04 so that makes me feel like we will get it much sooner than the 06-01) I appreciate your insight to this. Thanks!

    • Hi William, so sorry you had address issues. Yes, you most definitely should get your refund before June 1st. That date is what I like to call their “worst case scenario” date. The usually give a 21 day or 30 day date so that people know when they can expect their refund. Most receive it anywhere from 7 to 10 days before the worse case scenario date. Hopefully you will get yours any day now! Keep us posted.
