How Long Will it Take To Get Your Tax Refund?

How Long Will it Take to Get My Tax Refund?

Where’s my tax refund?

According to the IRS, they will issue “most refunds in less than 21 days”. The IRS is not going to release a tax refund table like they have in the past. However, as a rough guide, we are presenting our estimate and the 2013 table for reference.

Get a Bigger Refund Next Year

Even though you’ve probably filed your tax return for 2013, keep in mind that if you open up a traditional IRA, you’ll be able to write off up to an additional $5,500 (or more) in revenue every year. IRA accounts can be opened in a variety of ways in a variety of places so if you’re new to the benefits an IRA account can provide, Mint.com and their IRA wizard is a good place to start.

As we’ve noted in previous years, a large percentage of people get a tax refund each year. Somewhere around $2,000 per tax filer. As you can imagine, many people are itching to get this money back from the IRS to put it to use. Better to be back in your hands than let the IRS have it another day, right?

If You e-filed Your Tax Return

So how do you find out when your tax refund check will be mailed, or when your direct deposit will be sent? If you e-file, it’s very easy to find out. You have a couple of tools at your disposal.

First, the IRS’s “where’s my refund?” site or mobile version of this site, the IRS2Go App for iPhone and Android are great places to find out where you refund is. You can also call the Refund Hotline at 800–829–1954. The IRS suggest waiting 72 hours after your return has been e-filed to start checking on the status.

Secondly, you could take a gander at the estimated 20143 IRS e-file refund cycle chart:

Keep in mind those numbers are purely estimates and the IRS has NOT released one of these charts for the 2013 filing season and they do not plan to. For more guidance on this you should see their refund guide for tax preparers.  You could also look at the 2013 IRS e-file Refund Cycle Chart and use that as a rough estimate of what to expect for this year. Here’s the first few weeks of the chart:

Note that the chart shows when the check or direct deposit will be sent, not necessarily received by you. Keep in mind, this is only for those who have chosen to e-file their return. Also, the IRS disclaims that this isn’t a guarantee that your return will be sent on these dates.

If You Mailed Your Return

If you file your return by mail, expect a longer wait. The IRS hasn’t put together a handy calendar for you. Those days are over. So you’ll have to deal with this generic rule: according to the IRS, if your paper return is complete and accurate, you should receive your return around six weeks from the time they received it. Note that after the three week mark, you should be able to call into the IRS or use the website or app mentioned above and locate the status of your return.

What’s your story? How long did you wait for your refund? Did the IRS seem to follow these dates above in your case?

  1. Awesome! Thanks for doing the research. I can’t wait to get my refund.

  2. Thanks for the sharing the table of information with us. I haven’t submitted yet, but I’ll let you know when I do and when I get my refund check.

  3. Thanks, Jenna. I’m trying my best to get mine in before 11 am tomorrow. Would be nice to get a refund before the end of the month.

  4. REBECCA CAPRIO says:

    LISTEN I WAS TOLD MY CHECK WAS MAILED ON APRIL 1ST TO ME.. WELL TODAY IS THE 16H AND I STILL HAVEN’T RECIEVED MY CHECK.. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR IT TO COME IN THE MAIL IT HAS BEEN TWO WEEKS……………….

  5. I am not so sure those dates are correct. My girlfriend e-filed her refund at home through HR Block on Jan. 16,2012 (not sure of the time , but I know it was after 11am) and she had the full amount in her checking account yesterday-Jan.25,2012. According to the above table/dates she should still be waiting until tommorow for the deposit.

  6. I just learned that the IRS just put a hold on refunds until next week. Does anybody know why? Oh by the way Louisiana

  7. Snowbunny1366 says:

    I filed mine on January 18, 2012 was excepted on January 19th 2012 at 8:15 a.m. H&R Block told me Feb 1st but probaly before then, IRS WMR said February 7, 2012 – Which date is right???? How often does WMR get updated? When does IRS cut checks everyday or just certain days??? Please let me know someone is you have any information to set my mind at ease……….

  8. I filed my taxes at H&R block on 1-19-2012 and I have it set up for direct deposit and H&R block called me this morning and said I would have gotten my return on1-26-2012 but the irs system was down and they said they wasn’t sure when it would be here now some where between now and 02-07-2012 so I don’t know what is going on I wish it would hurry up and come though good luck to everyone.

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @earl lane Thank you for your response…UGH H&R Block did not call me, I think I will try and give then a call, I got mine on that stupid Emerald Card and for some reason I think I made a mistake with all that should of had DD, I’m kinda hoping I get it this weekend holding on to FAITH. Let me know if you find something else out thank you

    • @earl lane I filled mines on 1/17 and they got it on 1/21 when I check wmr it’s saying by feb7 but it’s been saying that for the longest it’s not giving me a direct deposit date or any thing

      • SomerDreams says:

        @baby face @earl lane That is exactly what is going on with mine. It has said by the 7th for awhile. I hope they update the system soon with new, positive updates. lol

      • I filed on 18th; accepted on 19th. WMR has been saying Feb 7 …. the whole time… i wonder if it will update first.. or we will just get deposits?

        • SomerDreams says:

          @ksoape I wonder the same thing; will we see an update OR get a DD first? I guess we will have to wait and see….

        • @somerdreams — i will let you know if my status changes … so far it still says Feb. 7 !!!

      • has anything changed on your status yet? this is such crap !! people that filed AFTER US already got their money!

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @ksoape NO man, mine still says the same thing, since it was accepted on the 19th!!!! I know I read some things on line that some ppl got theirs already :(. Just like you I sooo need it, I find myself thinking about it all the time for the last week, I feel like a weirdo I just want an update I can see!!!

  9. Snowbunny1366 says:

    I called H&R Block about 2 hours ago – She told me about the delay and stuff and said dont look for my refund any sooner than February 1st or after. :( I asked her if there was a possibility it could come now and then and she said no. So I guess that’s where I stand, cant be honesty I just hope its there on the 1st. :)

    • @snowbunny1366 — did you get it today?? just curious…. when i called the IRS they would not tell me anything… just told me to wait for the date WMR has.

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @ksoape :( NOOOOO!!!! And WMR still says processing and by Feb 7th….Now Im hoping for Friday…….I have spoken to the IRS several times and they told me the same thing keep checking WMR…..is your status still the same “processing” I will let you know if mine changes and you let me know too!! It’s pretty sad when I get up in the morning the first thing I do is look for an e-mail on my phone from the IRS, pretty sad, good luck to us AGAIN for tomarrow or Friday!!

        • @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape
          I did my income tax on Jan 20th n they told me I should have it deposit to my acct within 8-10days.. I was hoping to receive it today but NOTHING! And the only thing the WMR says it’s processing and should receive it by Feb 7.. I hope I get on Friday.

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @good2by2 @ksoape ME TOO :)))))

    • @Snowbunny1366 — nothing has changed on mine.. still says the 7th. i called the irs .. they were rude and just told me that i should have it on or before the 7th, like the website says. uuughh…… let me know if you hear anything!!!

      where do you live? Im in Texas.

  10. I was lucky enough to recieve my w2s early so I filed my return on 1/14/2012 @ 1:00pm. I paid extra to have it come asap. Still havent recieved it as of 1/28/12. Called the IRS 1800# answering service said I should recieve it by 2/07/12. Due to processing delays, first of all what does that mean? Could it be a mistake on my part? Im very anxious also my coworkers filed 1 week after and recieved thiers already!!!! HELP

  11. My refund was accepted jan 18th and no money yet deposited in my account due to the delay. Also when I call the automated system they have no info about my refund.

  12. chuck 1979 says:

    i was accepted on the 18th then the date went from the 25th to the 31st now the 1st wtf anyony know why

  13. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Man, has anybody gotten any updates from WMR – I filed Jan 18 accepted 19 and says accepted and processing should get my refund on Feb 7th – nothing has changed some ppls dates are changing and everytime I call IRS I get different answers – Should I just wait till Wednesday and check WMR I heard that is when they update it…………………….

    • same story here… filed on 18; accepted on 19th … IRS WMR says BY Feb 7… do you think it could come before then???? like thats the worst case cenerio?

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @ksoape IRS told me to check WMR on the 1st cause that is when it will change and checks go out on Friday — But my date has never changed always the 7th — did you hear the same thing about Wednesday and Fridays

        • @snowbunny1366 — i cant get a straight answer anywhere! I have no clue!

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @ksoape Well if I hear something I will let you know or if my status changes I will let you know – you tell me too on your end if you come into some MAGICAL knowledge

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape Mine says by the 7th, which it has said for awhile. When I check out the cycle charts, they seem to be doing them on Wednesdays this year, but I have heard Thursdays too. I don’t know, so I would love to hear updates. Has anyone got their returns yet? lol

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @SomerDreams @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape I’m really. Hoptto hear sumthing tonight. Or early in the morning pls let me know. If yr status changes too good luck to us

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366@ksoape I will let y’all know if mine changes, but so far, it still says by the 7th.

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @SomerDreams @ksoape Well, I checked WMR when I got to work this morning and its still saying the 7th….does that mean not a chance for Friday of this week???…….Or do I gotta wait till next week….has anyone been updated………..:(

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape I say expect in a couple weeks so not to get disappointed if it’s not there tomorrow, Friday or even next week. If you get it sooner, then you will be happy. I would love mine this week too, but not holding my breath. Continue to update us, please. ;)

        • I called the IRS at lunch…stayed on hold for 25 minutes; then got the pleasure of speaking to the rudest rep they have! She told me to look online .. i told her I did…. she proceeded to tell me that i need to give the IRS THREE WEEKS like the projected date says….and it could come on that day .. OR anytime before….

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @ksoape let me know if yr status changes in. The morning I’m hoping good luck to all of us

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape When do they update the status? I have heard Wednesdays and I have heard daily, so I don’t know. lol I am hoping we can all say “I got my refund” very soon! ;)

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @SomerDreams @ksoape Just like you I heard Wednesdays too. But the lady at H&R Block says she “thinks” it is updated daily, to tell you the truth I dont think anyone knows, but like you I heard Wednesdays its updated and by Friday you should get it, that is why I’m so bummed that nothing changed on my WMR, idk what else to do but wait….again I hope for all of us tomarrow!!! Lastly….let me know if anyone’s status updates ……:) haha

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape I am going to call in the morning and see what they say. I will post any new info I get on here in case it helps others. ;)

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @SomerDreams @ksoape I tried called on my way home from work my phone died. I’m gonna call tomarrow too n check the WMR in the morning let me know n I will let u know :)

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366@ksoape Sounds like a plan. ;)

        • SomerDreams says:

          @Snowbunny1366 @ksoape Mine says that it will be direct deposit on the 6th (Monday)!!!!

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @SomerDreams @ksoape yea :) I’m happy for u!!!

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @ksoape :( Did your status change? Mine still says processing receive by the 7th????????WTF

  14. yaboiaj25 says:

    The only reason I went to hr block was to get my refund back faster and know its done right I was told I’d have mine by the 1st now it says the 7th I was praying to God it was a typo but I guess it wasn’t. This is extremely disappointing

  15. My refund was accepted jan 18th and no money yet deposited in my account due to the delay. Also when I call the automated system they have no info about my refund.
    Now mines said today if filed accurate and complete I will receive my refund in six weeks from the date I filed.

    • @Shannell did you call or check online and it told you that? I really hope thats wrong

      • @yaboiaj25 I checked online and it said that message I checked on yahoo and some people stated that if you received that message then more than likely your funds has been released and about to be deposited. I have that message and I had a dd for jan31 and feb1 so hopefully tommorrow.

  16. Ltommy182006 says:

    I filed mine on Jan 7Th. Was supposed to have it on the 25Th. Still nothing and today is the 30Th. Every time I log into wheres my refund, it says no information can be provided. But h&r block claims the IRS accepted my return Jan 13Th. I’m very disappointed because the past years it only took a week to get it direct deposit.

    Here is the Message I have gotten for the last three weeks every time I check WMR… ”

    We cannot provide any information about your refund.

    If you file a complete and accurate tax return, your refund will be issued”

  20. Has anyone else received a message saying if filed accurate and complete it can take up to six weeks from the date u filed to get ur refund. Thats bs.

    • @Shannell This message only applies if you log in to many times or there system is updating in the morning it should be able to log on again if not contact the IRS.

  21. Snowbunny1366 says:

    I’m holding out for tomarrow hopefully WMR will update cause nothing has changed still says accepted on the 19th and I should receive it by February 7th. Man, I hope it says something!!!!!

  22. (WASHINGTON) — If you’re one of the people who already filed your tax returns in the hopes of getting a refund back fast, Uncle Sam has some disappointing news for you.The Internal Revenue Service says some taxpayers may have to wait a week longer than initially projected to get their money back as it works on tweaking its computer systems to prevent refund fraud.”The one-week delay for some refunds relates to fine-tuning IRS systems to adjust for new safeguards put in place this tax season to provide stronger protection against refund fraud. The IRS is providing additional screening for fraud this year before issuing refunds, but the vast majority of taxpayers can still continue to expect to receive their refunds in a timely fashion,” the IRS said in an alert.The delay affects taxpayers who filed returns before Jan. 26, IRS spokeswoman Michelle Eldridge told USA Today.

  26. SomerDreams says:

    Call the IRS. You can listen to the automated part which will give you the status. Mine said once online that they were processing, but when I checked a few days later, they couldn’t find my info. Give it a call, and listen to the prompts. Good luck!

  27. Filed 25th told should recieve by the 8 th checked wmr the other day told me the 14 th just checked because I heard there were more delays it now says should be dd on the 3rd if not recieved by the 8th please contact IRS so we will see

  28. Does anyone have a number that I can call to talk to a “real live” person at the IRS regarding the refund?

  29. I contacted the Irs and spoke with a liv agent i was getting the message processing should receive refund by 02/07/2012. When I spoke with the agent he stated that I have a direct deposit scheduled for 02/06/2012. On republic Bank taxpayer site it was first reading anticipated refund by 02/01/2012 then last night all of a sudden it changed to 02/08/2012. The rep stated that it should be at my taxpayers office by 2:00PM on the 6th. If you guys are wondering I filed on the 19th and was accepted on The 19th as well

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @lucky65 WOW!! That’s some good news for a change!! I hope that applys to all of us I’m Jan 19th also!!!! Lucky You!!

      • @Snowbunny1366 You contact the IRS @ 800-829-0582 ex362 and let them know that you need to know if there is an actual refund date on your account.

    • SomerDreams says:

      @lucky65 I am curious, so I will have to give them a call tomorrow and see if mine has a date. Thanks for the info! ;)

      • @SomerDreams This morning was a shocker the WMR site updated after about 11 days i recieved this messagYour tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 6, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 11, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until February 11, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.

        That’s good news so for sure i will have it by next weekend I really needed it this one but i just put off my plans until then.

  30. Contacted Rebulic Bank and they stated that they are receiving refunds and they are sending them out as quick as they recieve them.

  31. Ugh, my husband just told me that his mother got her fed refund today and she filed about 4 days AFTER we did! That’s government for ya; unfair and confusing as hell!

  32. Shawtyred29 says:

    I gotta say the dates on the irs are wrong I will check the accounts tomorrow if i were you I heard the irs are releasing checks daily now but the ones whom were delayed you should recieve them by friday hopefully. Much like others i am one of the ppl who refund is late but on wmr its gives an approximate date to stear you from calling them but they say possibly tmorr the checks will be issued.

    • I just talked to a rep and he said some are on the old system that only deposits on fridays, and some are on the new system that deposits any day of the week.

  34. Mine says they went through, was supposed to get them yesturday now saying the 6 th. Could it be there Tomroew? I have the emerald card?

    • SomerDreams says:

      @CodyL Mine says I will get my direct deposited Monday (the 6th) as well. I have had good luck in the past about getting it dd when they said it would be, so far. Good luck.

  35. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Some ppls stauts changed today saying Direct Deposit – Mine still says processing should receive by the 7th

  36. Snowbunny1366 says:

    @Shawtyred29 Mine was accepted on the 19th and has processing should receive by Feb 7th – MAN I hope mine changes tomarrow…..I keep getting different stories from the IRS………….arent these ppl suppose to know what the H*$$ is going on and everyone one of them has a different story…………………………..

  37. I filed my tax refund through HR Block online with direct deposit on Jan.23rd or the 24th. I filed self-employed with HR Block taking their fees out of my refund check. When I first called the IRS, they said I would have my check by Feb.14th. When I called last night, the status had changed and they said the check would be direct deposited tommorow-Feb. 3rd. I did note the dates above and called my bank hoping it would be today. It is now 11:11 eastern time and the bank does not have it yet. I am assuming it will be tommorow. however I have 2 questions–1) by having HR Block take the filing fee out of my refund, will that slow down the process? As it will the refund go to HR Block tommorow and THEY will place it into my account after? 2) Do most banks-(namely Fifth Third Bank) treat the direct deposit refunds as cash or do they put a 24 hold on all but $100 of it? I guess I could call the bank and find out if nobody knows here. I will post again tommorow updating whether I did or did not recieve my refund as the IRS stated.

    Have A Great Day!!

  38. I am so confused. I filled on the 27th and was told by ther 13th but when I checked yesterday it said it was scheduled to be deposited on the 3rd. I also filed through H&R Block, so will it take longer to get it because it had to go through their banks first or will it be transferred that day??? I wish there were a consistant accurate date for us all to go by but then that would be asking too much from the gov.

  39. mine changed to direct deposit scheduled for the 6th i did mine the 20th so I hope it works out.

    • @yaboiaj25
      I did mine the same day.. and my WMR says I have a deposit scheduled for the 6th. So hopefully it’s there Monday morning :)

  40. Nope the IRS does not go by their dates posted. I just hope that H&R Block does deposits from their accounts as soon as they receive them from the irs. I’m just a little worried that is going to be what takes longer for me to get my return. I use to have my return put on the emerald card but found out the hard way it took two weeks.

  41. SoPersnickety says:

    I just read my irs stats on my refund. Today it has switched again on the 8th of Feb. I completed my refund by Jan 20. My first initial date was Feb 3rd. Than it was the 7th for almost a week. Now today its the 8th and I got the same msg that someone mention about waiting to march if my refund is not here. So like the gov to switch my date. I find it very rude and ignorant. I should of did direct deposit.

  42. Snowbunny1366 says:

    I’m hoping my status will change tomarrow!!! :(

  43. auburngirl says:

    We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by February 7, 2012 seems like alot of people are getting this message

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @auburngirl Thats xactly wut mine says since Jan 19th. I’m starting to wonder if it will ever say SOMETHING different

  44. WHATTHE41 says:

    I AM STRESSED THE HELL OUT OVER THIS YEARS REFUND DELAYS. I WAS SUPPOSE TO RECEIVE IT FEB. 1ST AND THEN IT CHAGED TO FEB. 7TH. I’M GLAD I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WIG_iN OUT ABOUT THIS DILEMA. TODAY IS 2/2/12 AND MY BEST FRIEND RECEIVED HERS AT ABOUT 9A.M THIS MORNING, YET, DESPITE FILING BEFORE HER…I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY REFUND! THE IRS JUST INFORMED ME THAT IT IS BEING PROCESSED, AN SO THAT MEANS WHAT???? I HEAR THAT FRIDAY FEB. 3RD IS A LUCKY REFUND DAY! SINCE THERE IS A DELAY WITH MY REFUND, SHOULD I DELAY PAYING MY TAXES? GOOD LUCK TO ALL AND GOD BLESS TOO ALL!!!!!

  45. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Well, I’m really hoping my status changes tonight/morning I’m SOOOOO BLACKING OUT over this STRESSED to the limit. Let you guys know in the morning and let me know, as for now my still is processing and expect refund by the 7th no DD date nothing…………:( Everytime I talk to IRS it’s something different each and every time…………………………..Talk to you tomarrow

  46. frickonastick says:

    This delay bull is driving me nuts! Anyone got their dd yet?

  47. ndnlady29 says:

    Mine still states Feb. 3rd…I found out they lut the four extra days for your bank to process them…I hope mine is there in the morning….

  48. Samantha123 says:

    I am in the same situation…I filed REALLY early. I got an acceptance on the 14th…despite the IRS saying the didn’t accept returns before the 17th. I should have had the refund by the 25th (according to their refund cycle)…then their system said the 31st..now, it just says it’s processing and no date is given. Have you got your refund yet?

  49. ndnlady29 says:

    I am so impatient…I hate the waiting and not knowing for sure if I’m going to receive my refund tomorrow…I hope you all have the best of luck tomorrow too…

  50. Ok update for me as I posted before last week dd of 8th then went to the 14 th then yesterday went to the 3rd just got email saying money has been dd into account 6pm the 2nd good luck all

  51. ndnlady29 says:

    @waiting that’s great news…I hope we all get ours dd by tomorrow…

  52. I actually got mine almost an entire week sooner than anticipated. (well it says the direct deposit was sent today, just waiting on it to be dispersed to my account.

  53. I’m curious as to why the dates are off…like it says accepted by irs between Jan. 20-26 to expect a dd on Feb. 2nd but when I checked the “where’s my refund” it gives me a date of Feb. 3rd? Where the heck does that date come from? Just wondering why the dates are different. I hope everyone gets theirs by tomorrow if not waiting some more…ugh

  54. I just received an email that states my funds have been released to my bank and that it could take up to four additional days to have my bank process the funds….so I’m hoping my bank does it quickly…good luck to everyone else

  55. mine says the 7th also but when I called the IRS they said by the 7th but who knows

  56. I think it will be tomorrow Feb. 3rd for most…I think they say the 7th so they have time to process the funds…

  57. scottyboy says:

    I hope so. The IRS is a big loke if they owe you but if you owe them they are all over it and on top of things!

  58. rangr361v says:

    Well I’m a 2/7 and it’s 01:34 on 2/3 and I haven’t got my refund that was excepted on 01/20/2012

  59. check out igotmyrefund.com, there are 2/7 ppl getting theirs, with no WMR updates!

  60. Heather83 says:

    I was told by the IRS at first that I could expect my refund to be deposited on Feb.14. Then when I called earlier this week the date had changed to Feb. 3rd. I was holding my breath as to whether that was the truth, after hearing about all the delays etc. with the IRS. I have great news!! the check is in the bank this morning!!! Come 9am I am off to the bank!! My only whoa now is that I hope Fifth Third doesn’t hold all but $100 of it. The love that game. I am thinking not because it said my account and available balance is what it should be with the check clearing. Good luck to everybody. I agree this waiting and changing the dates stink. I get their are lots of refunds to be processed, but don’t issue a guarantee if they cannot hold up their end. Although in my case, they did. I filed on Jan. 23-24 and recieved it today-Feb 3rd. Thats not too bad!!

  61. This is Lucky65 previously I told you that i was scheduled for direct deposit on 02/06/2012. Well this morning @7:50 i looked a republic bank and it stated that my refund is recieved and is waiting to be printed at my tax prepares office so i should have it no later than 2:00pm today. thanks to everyone that posted and updated us on the info good luck to those of you that have’nt recieved it it will be here soon.

  62. I looked on where’s my refund and it said I should receive my refund by feb 7th. Well it seems like to me that I could be getting my refund today since everyone else’s say feb 6th or 7th and they been receiving there’s today.

    • SomerDreams says:

      @Nesha22 Mine says I will get mine on the 6th, and usually when they say what day it will be DD, I get it on that day. Good luck!

  63. auburngirl says:

    My status is still the same received and being processed should receive by 7 Feb…

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @auburngirl M I N E T O O – Still processing and should receive by the 7th of February – I was really hoping for some type of change….everyone else is getting DD dates and payments dates me N O T H I N G ………..I’m so upset

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @auburngirl Did you call the IRS, I called a couple times this past week and they cant really tell me anything, its always a different story, I just dont understand why its not updating and processing………………………..

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @auburngirl I know I said I wasnt gonna do it but ……………I’m on hold with the IRS…………I will let you know what they tell me ………. at least I’m not alone your still processing along with me ………let me know if your’s updates. Good Luck

  64. NickolasClark says:

    I’ve been following the posts going up here and it really helped me. I was in the received and processing club until 2/7 then WMR showed DD date of 2/6 on the 2nd then this morning the 3rd, it hasnt hit my account yet but republic bank sent the funds. Hopefully we’ll be busy with something more productive than this once we get this money, I’ve been pretty worked up over this so called. Good luck all and dont stress……it will come. I hope my bank posts it immediately, i should get back to you on that.

    • @NickolasClark

      how did you find where it showed that republic bank sent the funds?

      • NickolasClark says:

        @JCON81 @NickolasClark I have been checking my bank account all day…..nothin yet. As of this morning republic bank dispersed the funds, so i called my bank to see if there was anything pending that i couldn’t see, and there wasn’t but they did say that it has to go thru more than 1 process to get to our account. that’s probably why it’s not there yet but i’m sure by tonight, it will be there. I’ve heard of people’s money showing up all day and night so i dont think there is a definite time or date. hope this helped and i will try to post when i get my money but you all know how busy i will be when it shows up :)

    • abbeymarie86 says:

      @NickolasClark

      Yes, please reply when it gets to your account. university national (mn) dispersed the funds today but they havent hit my bank yet.

  65. Snowbunny1366 says:

    S T I L L P R O C E S S I N G – What the H&##

    • SomerDreams says:

      @Snowbunny1366 Hopefully it changes ASAP. My status changed between 1am Thursday morning when I checked to about 6am when hubby checked. Just be positive. Who knows, you may get a DD without a change on the WMR site.

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @SomerDreams Man, that would be nice. I dont wanna keep calling the IRS feeling like a stalker n stuff but JEEEEEEZ, this is flipping DRIVING ME CRAZY

  66. OK so WMR is showing 2/7 does that mean i will have my refund by that date?

  67. ndnlady29 says:

    I got my refund about 30mins ago….I am so excited…
    Filed on 1/27
    Accepted by irs 1/30
    Tranferred to my bank 2/2
    Available 2/3
    I hope everyone still waiting gets their refund today…

    • AubreyHofmannCallender says:

      @ndnlady29 you got yours at what time?

    • john07821 says:

      @ndnlady29

      I filed on the 27th as well and it says they are processing it i can expect it on or about the 14th

    • crazyeyes211999 says:

      @ndnlady29

      geesh im confused how is folks getting theres first i was accepted on 22nd and supposed to get on first now a feb 7th

  68. Can somebody post IRS number so I can speak to a rep about my refund please…..

  69. abbeymarie86 says:

    I filed the 20, they got accepted the 21. i kept getting different answeres from the irs on when i would get it. this morning its said 2/6/2012 but i looked on university national who process the fees and they got my refund this morning 2/3 and sent it to my bank, but it has not been posted to my account yet

  70. ndnlady29 says:

    So those dates that the irs posts are just a basic outline date…my original dd was 2/13 and it was actually one week from the date I filed at h&r block…good luck to all of you

    • AubreyHofmannCallender says:

      @ndnlady29 I also filed on those dates and I haven’t got mine back yet and it states the 13th. Hmmm

  71. ndnlady29 says:

    @aubrey mine was updated last night…that was my original date 2/13…but I got it this morning…

    • AubreyHofmannCallender says:

      @ndnlady29 so weird its so spuratic like this. Do they only DD on Fridays? Cuz all the stuff I read was Wednesdays and I don’t remember last year.

  72. So… I filed on 18th; accepted on 19th. The WMR site has said expect your refund BY Feb. 7 and has never changed….. what do you suppose this means? I called the IRS and they could not give me a deposit date!!!!

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @ksoape Same story hear, I have no freaking idea wth is going on. I called the IRS about 7 times and got different stories each time, so the last one told me Feb 8 and there is an offset on it, she gave me the number of the Federal Offset Program and I spoke with a rep and he has nothing on my ss#……………I dont really know anymore

  73. KristinaCarpenter says:

    i filed my taxes on the 19th, they were accepted the 20th. Still no refund.I have the emerald card. Called customer service, and they haven’t received anything from the IRS yet…. called the irs and they said they couldn’t tell me anything more than what WMR states. it is in processing and they can not give me a specific DD date… this is absolutely ridiculous. Got the card hoping for a quicker return because thats what HR block told me. my car was on its last leg, and now it is on the side of the road in town because i don’t even have the money to pay someone to pull it back home :(……

  74. Marcel1083 says:

    Call 1-800-829-1040, then press 0 like 3 times and it will send you to a rep.

  75. NickolasClark says:

    i feel bad for the folks still processing but it started to go fast out of nowhere all the sudden so try and keep some hope. I filed on the 22nd or 23rd and the IRS received it that weekend. i think it was on the 30th that WMR stated it was received and call of its not there by the 7th or something like that, then 2 days ago it said i had a direct deposit for the 6th and now (as of 1pm 2/3/12) republic bank says they sent the fund and i’m waiting for the money to show in my account. MOST banks wont put a hold on any direct deposit but the processing does take a couple days sometimes. it’s not like a pay check where they send it to the bank way before it posts and they post date it. That’s why many people are expecting their refund to be there at midnight, I dont think it works like that tho. hope this info helps someone. i’m not an expert but i dont think you have to be to see that the status’ are changing all the time.

  76. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Now the IRS talking about my refund is offset ——- She couldnt tell me who or how much or why ——-gave me the Federal Offset Number ———-spoke to a rep there he has no offset for my ss# ——-told me to call tax advocate at the IRS —–did that she said ARE YOU READY “Maybe its a computer malfunction” REALLY PEOPLE THIS IS THE F*&^%$( IRS what they got a bunch of F^&*)^% morans working there…………………..

  77. It’s after 2:00pm her and a disbursement still have not been made. They talking bout they may not print them until 02/06/2012.

    • NickolasClark says:

      @lucky65 wow…..that is ridiculous. not cool. we’ll see what happens with my situation.

  78. oops here

  79. look at this while i was posting the previous message i revieved this message Electronic Refund Check/Federal Funding Check $6,743.00 Check is currently being processed. Please allow 24 to 48 hours for processing to complete.

  80. john07821 says:

    They just put on their website not to call that they cant tell you anymore than the website. It shoukd take 10-21 days to receive your refund.

    • NickolasClark says:

      @john07821 who is they? Did “they” mean 10-21 days from when you filed?

      • john07821 says:

        @NickolasClark

        Nickolas if you go to irs.gov and go to weresmyrefund it says it on the top of the page. i think its from the time you filed your return.

        • NickolasClark says:

          @john07821 right on man. IRS sent request to republic bank this morning so i should see it tomorrow hopefully.

        • john07821 says:

        • NickolasClark says:

          @john07821 i’ve heard of 1/27/12 filers are getting there money yesterday and today. I thought i read that on this site this morning or yesterday.

          @NickolasClark

          I hope so Nickolas i couold use the cash.

        • NickolasClark says:

          @john07821 yeah…..i hear ya……i set up payments based on the anticipated refund date so if you’re broke and wanting your money, remember it could be worse…..i guess

  81. ShayJones says:

  82. IRS stated that heres the message

  83. Our new telephone hours of operation are 7am to 7pm, local time. Please disregard any reference to our 7am to 10pm operating hours. We will update our systems with the new information very soon. Thank you.

    If you filed electronically, you should expect a refund to be issued 10 – 21 days after the IRS accepts the return. Please do not call our toll-free number as our representatives cannot provide further information before processing is complete nor expedite processing. You may continue to check this website for the latest refund information. The information at this website contains the same information provided on our automated telephone application

  85. hella good friday

    • @lucky65 do the paper checks and dd go out at the same time?

      • @tshack all day until 3:25pm i was recieving message on my account from republic bank. Once i recieved the message my check was processing on the IRS site i could no longer be located due to my refund going into the account. By the way the people at the IRS don’t know what they be talking about 100% of the time this morning at 11:15 they had me down looking real ugly(LOL) cause they said i was’nt going to get my refund until next friday they only send refunds out on friday so expect it 02/10/2012 which is nxt week. so don’t listen to them cause everything they said was anticipated not factual

  86. do the paper checks and dd go out at the same time?

  87. Does anyone know a supposed delay if you filed before 26。 I filed on 18 th with direct deposit but still no money. Called and checked refund chart and I should have gotten my refund. ? Not a clue why people who filed after me have there money.

    • NickolasClark says:

      @cadejayash welcome to the club! sorry it’s not funny at first but i’ve had to find some acceptance with the fact of matter, it’s not up to us and it will be there when they figure their errors out. It’s my understanding that most people that filed before the 25th/26th have a delay. it gets WORSE my neighbor just got home and said she got hers. Guess when she filed…….5 days ago. I know…..it doesn’t make since and it’s frustrating. my situation went from processing and be there by the 7th to dd on the 6th and now it’s on the way says republic bank.

      i filed on the 22nd BTW

      • @NickolasClark @cadejayash wats republic bank used for?

        • NickolasClark says:

          @tshack @cadejayash it will tell you the status of your money, where as “where’s my refund” tells you the filing status. i found out about that bank after i already got accepted and had a direct deposit date. so its republictaxpayer.com and they may show a different date than the irs site. i dont know if that site will help your stress because it has stated all day that my funds were sent direct deposit today. that was new when i checked this morning so i was really stoked to see that. so all day i’ve been dreamin about all the stuff i will be able to get handled and it hasn’t shown up :( some GOOD NEWS is that i called my tax guys and they said there were 8 new direct deposits that went thru between opening this morning and just now when i called. hope i have good news soon. PS i still cant believe my neighbor got their refund today and they filed 4 days after me. RRRRrrrr!

        • @NickolasClark @tshack

        • @NickolasClark @tshack apparently they never heard of me. I checked it and didn’t didn’t recognizemy social sec # what the heck. I filed on 18 th. Thisis going to drive me crazy.

        • NickolasClark says:

          @cadejayash @tshack sorry. like i said, i didn’t know about the republic site until i already had a direct deposit date from irs. so maybe you have to be accepted or something before you are recognized by that bank. i’ve heard that the earlier you filed the longer its taking but then again others in your situation got theirs on the 1st and before. i’m really sorry. MORE WILL BE REVEALED!

  89. just talked to irs…they said the see the same date but it could take up to two weeks… so basically just watch the mail…i guess

  90. NickolasClark says:

    1-4 days to process the direct deposit from when Republic Bank sends it.

  91. MaggieBrown says:

    For ppl who dont know what is going on in TEXAS they had a FRAUD there and thats what holding ppl money up b/c of that…..i filed on the 31st and i still dont have no answer yet….

  92. If you filed on or before Jan. 26th 2012 you were processed on their old system and then it was updated and they have to now process you through the new system and that’s the hold up but I also heard most of those will go through on the 7th…so I hope this helps some…the ones that were processed after the 26th are on the new system…

  93. i files on jan 30 an still has been accepted by the irs but when i went to the bank web site it said i should have it by feb 15 what is really going on?

  94. typo i have not been accepted

  95. MaggieBrown says:

    can someone help with this…i filed on the 31st of Jan., i checked the Where’s my refund site but it said that it don;t have no info on me to check back in a week and that it can take up to 3 weeks for me to get it but i was told that when i filed that i was suppose to get it on or before the 8th of Feb…..i’m so confused…PLZ HELP…..

    • SomerDreams says:

      @MaggieBrown Call the automated number to get an update if you are not seeing anything online or if you got ‘locked out’.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @SomerDreams what does the lockout mean????? i never heard of that…

        • SomerDreams says:

          @MaggieBrown If you check too many times online, it can ‘lock’ you out. If you call the automated number, you can still get updates. We were anxious, and checked too many, so it happened to us. When I started reading others talk about it, I realized it happened to me. Good Luck.

  96. SOI FILED MY TAXES ON THE 2 OF FEB…DIRECT DEPOSITDO I GETIT THURSDAY…FEB,9TH

  97. @maggie your probably locked out…its only temp but you might have checked more then allowed within a period of time…give it time to update and you can check it again…

  98. SomerDreams says:

    My update: Between 10pm last night and 5:30 this morning, my refund was deposited into my account. I had a DD date of February 6th. Hope this gives hope to those who have not received. Good luck all.

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @SomerDreams when did u file?

    • underpaidlawyergirl says:

      @SomerDreams

      Yes, it does :). Filed and accepted 1/21 with refund due by February 1, 2012. For sometime, WMR and IRS automated phone line state I will receive my refund by February 7, 2012 (due to processing delays). Following news of the IRS delays, Turbotax App indicates I will receive my deposit between January 31 – February 11,2012.

    • @SomerDreams was it emerald card or your bank account I did mine 20th opted for emerald card still nothing

      • SomerDreams says:

        @yaboiaj25 We do ours direct deposit in our bank account, which we have for the past few years. My friend does an emerald card and received hers Wednesday (Feb. 1st).

        • @SomerDreams O thank you for your response that sucks.. excuse my use of words this is really frustrating I”m happy you recieved yours though God bless thanks again

  99. NickolasClark says:

    I came back to this site with 1 final feed. I had DD date of the 6th and it showed up while i was sleeping. I hope ya’ll get your refund soon too. see ya next year :)

  100. I filed my taxes jan 20 was told it would be dep in my account feb 1 and nothing yet I checked efile and it stated my fed tax was accepted 1/31 so now what how long will it take to be in my account? So confused

    • NickolasClark says:

      @LuzO probably the 8th or something. it could be sooner because they are reprocessing the ones like yours and mine that were filed before the 26th which is when they implemented the new fraud software. It’s like the earlier you filed, the longer you’re waiting this year but you gotta be comin up if you filed on the 20th. my neighbor filed on the 27th and got hers on the 3rd, my family filed the 22nd or 23rd and got ours this morning, yours must be coming up. check http://www.republictaxpayer.com I hope this helps

      • @NickolasClark @LuzO Thank u Nickolas I hope so I guess I will be checking my account everyday lol what’s upsetting is y wait till tax season to do that just makes no sense

    • @LuzO
      What does your WMR status say?

      • underpaidlawyergirl says:

        @good2by2 @LuzO

        When not locked out, due to processing delays will receive by February 7. IRS always states by February 7, 2012. What worries me are so many others filed before me (I filed and was accepted 1/21) and they have dates of February 21. I know to be patient, if I had lots of money it would be easy to be patient.

  101. This is crazy to hear! I filed on the 17th and was accepted on the 18th. Nothing yet, just a “should be received by Feb 7″ status. Thought filing early would get it out of the way, but it’s become more of a hassle.

  113. underpaidlawyergirl says:

    Update: Sunday morning 2/5/12: Finally something very different on the IRS WMR website for me: It specifically states my refund will be deposited by February 8. Up until now, but for the delay, my refund should have been deposited by Feb. 1. Processing delays by the IRS caused the date to be moved to Feb. 7th- The IRS WMR and automated telephone line consistently confirmed deposit date was Feb. 7. However, last night I could night access WMR, not sure why…I assumed the site was updating. This morning, totally different – thank goodness. What I fully expect is the deposit will be here in the morning and if not by Wednesday. By the way, my refund was reduced due by a small amount I owed for a past tax year. I knew this would happen and the remaining amount refunded. The messeage I received on WMR this morning stated the same.

    • @underpaidlawyergirl I got the same thing when I just went on the WMR. Although mine isn’t being DD it’s being put on the Emerald Card. Why do you expect it to be in the morning perhaps not on the 8th? I would LOVE for mine to be here in the morning but I am not holding my breath.

      • underpaidlawyergirl says:

        @chris35ty
        I could be wrong and what with the delays with the IRS for earlier filers ( I was one of them), from everything I’ve read from others receiving their refunds on time and from my past tax refunds, the IRS refunds (deposits) are generally made before the IRS schedule dates that are based on the acceptance date. I suppose the bank can hold up the deposit. Where I bank (credit union), the moment my deposit comes in, I receive it so I am not expecting the credit union to hold on to the deposit. In the past, even my friends refunds deposit prior to the IRS refund deposit date given once their returns are accepted. It really has been like clock work (refunds are received before the scheduled date) but for last year and now…both hold ups were initiated by the IRS. It would be nice if it is here early, if not at least it is on the way.

        • chris35ty says:

          @underpaidlawyergirl @chris35ty
          Well that gives me a little relief. This is the first time I have gotten mine put on the emerald card and I won’t do it again. Reason being I always had mine DD in my bank and got it faster. A co-worker did hers at H&R block same day same place and got hers DD last Thursday. Ugh! I always thought IRS didn’t work on weekends but maybe they are this year due to the problems cause normally the system wouldn’t update until a work day. When did you file yours?

        • underpaidlawyergirl says:

          @chris35ty

          I filed and was accepted on 1/21 so I was in the 2nd batch to be deposited on 2/1 …then of course we learned of the IRS system delays etc.

        • chris35ty says:

          @underpaidlawyergirl Oh ok! I don’t understand the second batch things. Only thing I know I filed on 1/24 and the it was accepted that day. The preparer said when I woke up on 2/1 it would be on the card. Then all this time with the 7th. Ugh I hate not understanding things :(

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty @underpaidlawyergirl @ chris35ty, when did u file with H&R because i filed on the 31st of Jan and H&R Block said that i should receive it on the 8th but when i checked the WMR site it just said ”

        We are sorry, we cannot provide any information about your refund.

        It can take up to 3 weeks to process your return. Please wait at least one week before you log-on again to check the status of your refund” and it tell me that every time i check it and even on the automated system as well……

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown @underpaidlawyergirl
          I filed on the 24th. I went to WMR and it now says it will be direct deposited by February 8th.

          I heard that ppl who file their returns after 1/26 the delay wouldn’t apply to them. Go figure. I did a lot of research on the net about this and that’s how I found out.

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty @underpaidlawyergirl @ chris35ty…i hear the same thing but i was thinking that this might happen to me as well b/c of the WMR site saying, b/c i thought at least that i should have some type of info about the refund or even a DD… so now im just going off what H&R Block is telling me and i have mine going on the Emerald Card…and i was told that with that card u get it faster too……..”Its my money and i need it now” LOL

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown @underpaidlawyergirl
          So far everything I have read about this card I do not like! I’ll be doing my own taxes next year. I hear ya about your money! That’s how I feel too! We worked for it now give us whats coming to us! I do hope yours is among the rest of them going out this week Maggie. I hope I can wake up tomorrow and it’s on my card :)

  114. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Mine also changed to the 8th mine was also reduced by a few hundred for past yr I’m so happy it changed mine on emerald card too hope yr right n by morning or wed :) HAPPY

    • @Snowbunny1366 oh yay !! im so happy for us both!!! :-)

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @ksoape1 I HOPE ITS GOOD NEWS FOR US 2MARROW!! $$$$$$$ I CANT WAIT I HOPE WE KNOW SOMETHING IN THE MORNING!!!!!! LET ME KNOW IF YOU GET YOURS N THE MORNING!!!! GOOD LUCK IN THE AM

  115. Gagirl30032 says:

    How are yall getting updates on a sunday because at the bottom of the page it says it was last updated or reviewed on the 3rd and I have checked mines since then and it says the same thing…

    • chris35ty says:

      @Gagirl30032 That’s how mine has been all week for the 7th of February. Today it was the quite opposite. I don’t know why the thing updated. Maybe they are working on the weekends to get these refunds out because of the delay? Mine clearly says its processed and should be DD on or by Feb 8th.

  116. MaggieBrown says:

    HAS ANYONE WENT ON THE WMR WEBSITE TODAY AND IT SAID THAT IT WAS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE??????

    • chris35ty says:

      @MaggieBrown Just now I did and yep its unavailable. Grrr! Maybe lots of people are logging on to it at once??? Who knows

    • @MaggieBrown Yes I tried to log on but it says it’s unavailable. Hope I receive my money by tomorrow or Tuesday….

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @Nesha22 when did u file…b/c i filed on the 31st of jan and H&R Block said it will be on the 8th but the WMR site dont have no other info on me yet and i dont know why though b/c it said that it takes 72 hours for it to get in the system…i hope we

        get my money by the 8th (L.W)

        • @MaggieBrown I filed on the 17th according to the IRS schedule chart I was suppose to receive my refund on the 27th. My cousin filed her taxes on the 28th and got hers yesterday(Saturday). I don’t understand

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @Nesha22 well i hope they update the system so i can really know when i get mine b/c this just dont make no sense

  117. chocolate girl says:

    so do yall think us 2/8ers will get ours tomorrow?

    • Whereisit says:

      @chocolate girl I think maybe yes cause if u read previous post from nickolas he was a 2/6 and awoke to his sat morning.,since his stated 2/6 Monday that means if he was getting live check it would have been mailed fri and he’d got monday6th but he had Dd so sent electrically fri and bank posted it fri nite aval sat morning. So if ours say the 8th if it’s mailed it has to go out Monday to get wed. The 8th so satuarday when IRS went to work I think hope and pray they sent wires and that would mean waking up Monday to money to go buy my 18 wheeler which is what we do every year so our income tax continues to give all year around . Long mountain truck here I come :))))))

  118. MaggieBrown says:

    DID ANYONE ELSE FILE ON THE 31ST OF JAN AND THE TAX PPL SAID THAT YOU WILL GET IT ON THE 8TH OF FEB.??????

    • PaulineDeckerBoyer says:

      @MaggieBrown i filed the 31 for turbo tax and got the card but it telling me i will recieve the money by the 21

    • chris35ty says:

      @Snowbunny1366 I was told you will either get a txt message or an email stating it’s on the card. Who knows? What gets me the site says wait 10-21 days after they accept it so does that count Saturday & Sunday cause that would mean we wouldn’t get it til thursday or friday :( Grr hope tomorrow hope tomorrow hope tomorrow! lol

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty @Snowbunny1366 I KNOW….BUT WHEN I WENT ON THE H&R BLOCK SITE TO CHECK MY CARD IT SAID 7-14 DAYS (NOT BUSINESS DAYS)… SO I HOPE WE DO GET TOMORROW….

        • chris35ty says:

      @Nesha22

      Yes, I will post when I receive it. Will be up early b/c of work and will keep an eye on it and let you know regardless of what day I get it..

  122. Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 8, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 13, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until February 13, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.

  123. Is anybodys scheduled for Feb 6, 2012 ? I’m ready for my money lol Man this has been an outstanding hassle I don’t think a year has ever been this bad dealing with taxes hope this isn’t a new thing for the government.

    • @yaboiaj25
      I was scheduled for today Monday the 6th, and I got my refund! So excited! Hopefully yours is there too.. good luck :)

  124. MaggieBrown says:

    This another that i found on WMR site and I Quote ”

  125. My refund was suppose to be mailed on Tuesday the 7th now it’s saying it’s waiting to be processed again and could take up to 6 weeks??? WTF. h&r block sucks.

    • Kellisa mclemore says:

  126. I cant get any info on my refund on the WMR page it acts like i put in the wrong info if this has happened to someone else let me know

  127. i filed on the 1st when did u guys file? cause hrblock sent a message to my email saying the 8th but the office said the 15th

  128. chris35ty says:

    As of 9 am here in Ohio no refund :(

  129. Gagirl30032 says:

    Today has marked 8 business days and 12 days all together and no refund >:-(

  130. MaggieBrown says:

    I JUST CALLED THE IRS AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY DIDNT HAVE NO INFO ON ME AT ALL IN THE SYSTEM (PISSED OFF) EXCUSE MY FRENCH…. CALLED H&R BLOCK AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THE IRS HAVE ACCEPTED MY RETURN AND THAT I SHOULD GET IT BY THE 8TH OR A COUPLE OF DAYS AFTER THE 8TH B/C ONCE THE IRS RELEASE THE FUNDS TO THEM THAT IT COULD TAKE 24 TO 48 HOURS TO RELEASE IT TO ME……GGRRRRRRRRRRRR….. THIS IS REALLY MAKING ME LOSE MY COOL AND IM A HAPPY GO LUCK PERSON…..ITS MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW……IRS GET IT TOGETHER….

    • 3wildbears says:

      @MaggieBrown
      It’s says the same thing on my end, won’t even tell me if its been accepted! But hr block says it has been

    • courtneyharros says:

      @MaggieBrown I filed the same day u did HR block told me wait until the 8th. My mom filed on the 26th and got her tax on the 1st.

  131. chris35ty says:

    This is what I think, I could be wrong but it’s worth a shot. The original date we were given well I was given at the time said they were processing my refund and I should have it be February 7th. I called H&R Block a lot last week and they kept saying to me the IRS told them it would originally be the 7th. I was told when filing my taxes I was to have mine by 2/1/12 and H&R Block said they pushed it back a week. I am really hoping it comes tomorrow.

    • My refund status says mine is scheduled to be DD on February 8th, that being said making it 15 days from time I was accepted and filed.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty at least it said that cause mine didn’t say nothing at all but no info on me….

  132. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Mine was not DD today (scheduled for the 8th of February) Hope tomarrow!!!!

  133. this is all messed up i checked my state and it said on 2/2 it was in the last stages if i dont get it on the 8th im going to be heated everyone please keep me updated

  134. YAY!! finally closure I got a text message saying i should have mine dd by 1a.m local time I checked and there it is I hope everyone else gets everything worked out as well I did mine the 20th and my dd date was the first then changed to the 7th then the 6th so it will come. God bless all :)

    • @yaboiaj25 So then it’s already in your bank? Or did you get the card?

      • @chris35ty I have the emerald card It sends text messages everytime theres an update

        • @yaboiaj25 Ok me too. I keep texting BAL to see if they kinda missed texting me lol

        • @yaboiaj25 Although mine doesn’t text when there is an update. Wonder why?

        • @yaboiaj25 Can you change those settings?

        • @chris35ty I wasn’t able to I just told them I wanted messages when the money is in i think it was in before I got the txt but as I was clicking to look at my balance I got the txt I checked my balance on the emerald card page though so maybe itll tell you there hope you get it soon I know its a headache

        • @yaboiaj25 Where is that address?

        • yaboiaj25 says:

          @chris35ty its on onlinecardaccess.com I’m not exactly sure how I got there I googled emerald card balance and I clicked a link and found it somehow lol sorry I should have remembered exactly

        • chris35ty says:

          @yaboiaj25 Yeah I found it and made an account =)

        • yaboiaj25 says:

          @chris35ty O ok good :) I hope it all works out soon for you

    • chris35ty says:

      @yaboiaj25 Did you get that txt message when you woke up or just randomly throughout the day?

      • yaboiaj25 says:

        @chris35ty it was at 10:13 this morning

        • chris35ty says:

          @yaboiaj25 Ok so I guess I look forward to getting a txt then lol

        • yaboiaj25 says:

          @chris35ty lol yea good luck I think it will all work out I waited 17 days? I think Idk I waited to long tho so eventually itll be there for you

        • chris35ty says:

          @yaboiaj25 17 days?????? I filed mine the 24th so that basically means them saying it will be on the 8th is definitely wrong! :(

        • chris35ty says:

          @yaboiaj25 Its been 13 days today

        • yaboiaj25 says:

          @chris35ty sorry I hope it doesn’t take that long for you I’m just saying thats how long it took me to get mine :/ hope I’m wrong and you get it soon

    Anyone have any clue when it will b mailed?
    Louisiana

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @3wildbears no but i filed my on the 31st as well and h&r block said the 8th with me but the irs said that they dont have no info on me at all and when i called they said that it is begin processed but no DD yet…Louisiana

      • 3wildbears says:

        @MaggieBrown did u have a agent do yours? Who do you call at hr block

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @3wildbears yeah the agent done and i called the h&r block customer service… i called them 3x’s this am so for and called IRS 5x’s this am….customer service for h&r block is 800-472-5625

  137. Just called H&R Block. Told them WMR says it will be DD on February 8th and does that mean I will get it then? She said if that’s what it says I will get it that day and to call the number on the back of the card before I go spending it lol I hope I get a txt message

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @chris35ty thats the date

    • @chris35ty when did u do u taxes if u dont mind me askin

      • @bitties Of course not. I filed 1/24/2012. My co-worker did hers the same day at same place and had hers direct deposited in her bank and got them last Thursday :( I always did that but this year went with the card and I so wish I didn’t :(

        • i have had the card for 4 years and always done good with it i just hope when it says the 8th it means the 8th lol good luck with urs i wouldnt be happy either if i was u and i just got my done on the 1st so i couldnt imagine the 24th

        • @bitties Is yours saying the 8th too??? I really hope when I get up tomorrow it’s on the card. I hope to get a txt message stating that information. I just registered myself on the emerald card site. It still says $0.00 UGH

        • my email said the 8th and i called customer service and the live operator said the 8th so i have my fingers crossed

        • @bitties The Saturday after I filed.. I received an email from H&R Block? Did you? Saying that the due date may have been changed and anyone filing after the 26th it didn’t apply to them. So I agree with that operator saying yours would be the 8th cause you filed yours on the first. As for me, I am screwed lol

        • what was ur first date u were givin

        • @chris35ty

          have u heard anything yet i cant get threw to the irs so im gettin alil tired lol

        • chris35ty says:

          @bitties Nope. Just that it’s scheduled for deposit the 8th

  138. This leaves me to this question: Is there anyone out there that had a date and got it the day before or even 2 days before??

  139. MaggieBrown says:

    can anyone answer this question… i called the IRS again and this time i spoke with a woman and she told me that they have accpeted my return on the 31st and that it is being processed, so does that mean that i will get a DD soon but it doesnt say that in the WMR site though… can someone plz help me asap….??????

    • @MaggieBrown Mine was being processed and it said the 7th of February. Then they changed that on WMR this weekend and it said DD on the 8th. I don’t know why they can’t tell you when it will. Did you call the WMR hotline? Try that

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty when i went to the website it didnt say nothing no DD, but just it can take up to 3 weeks, it was like it didnt have no info on me, but when i called customer service they told me that they just received it on the 31st and that it is being processed and then she told me to check back over the weekend but when i spoke with H&R Block they told me that i was going to get on the 8th but still on the site no info on me…ugh….

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty and i call the hotline…called 800-829-1040 and 800-829-1954

        • @MaggieBrown The Where’s My Refund hotline???

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty is that # 8008291954

        • @MaggieBrown Here’s just a little tidbit Maggie and I don’t know if you tried it. When I was first told I was to get my refund on the first of February, I was going to the WMR nonstop and it kept telling me they had nothing on me. Soooo, when I was putting the exact amount, I was putting what H&R Block told me I was getting minus their fees. THEN I put in the FULL amount on what I was supposed to get with the added fee of H&R Block then it showed me what was going on.

          I know after the first I was getting pissed each and every day that it wasn’t on my card. Yeah we can just vent and bitch about it but it’s not going to make the IRS get it out any faster and I hate that. We are the ones who worked for the money and we should get it when we were promised it, not because they are doing all these new checking systems on people committing fraud and identity theft. I say, ppl who send theirs out April 17th shouldn’t and say OOPS I am delayed!

          Let me go look Maggie for the number ok???

        • @MaggieBrown 1-800-429-4059 hun

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty that number is making like a i dont signal a busy noise

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty and i feel the same way… i have vented to my husband, my mom, my grandmother… i tired of venting and i know everyone else is too….

        • @MaggieBrown Whoops I gave you the number for TDD lol. You had the first one right. 18008291040. Did you try going there and putting the complete amount without the H&R Block fees?

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty yeah

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown Well that’s odd

  140. omg everytime i call the irs it puts me to the automated service and then hangs up when it doesnt have any info for me can someone help me?

  141. auburngirl says:

    We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by February 7, 2012 …status has not changed

    • chris35ty says:

      @auburngirl I had that for nearly a week then it changed yesterday to : Your refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 8th. If your refund is not credited to you account by February 13, 2012 check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait til February 13, 2012 to contact us again because we are not able to take any action until then.

      • chris35ty says:

        I @auburngirl I guess I should be thankful I am getting that message and HOPEFULLY it will be here Wednesday. GRRRR

  142. chris35ty says:

    Does anyone know just where the headquarters for the IRS is?

  143. KristinaCarpenter says:

    i have gotten an update… have a scheduled DD date for feb 8th.. which is still a day late. I bet i don’t do hr block emerald card next year and just file my own taxes efile online. I got charged 472 dollars to wait 3 weeks… that is ridiculous…

    • chris35ty says:

      @KristinaCarpenter I bet I don’t either! I bet I do them myself like I used to years ago before my husband was on unemployment cause I didn’t know how to do his.

      • chris35ty says:

        @KristinaCarpenter I was charged 216.00

        • KristinaCarpenter says:

          @chris35ty wow!!! i have no idea why i was charged as much as i was.. it is really ridiculous!!! a lot of people who were scheduled for the 6th dd was getting theirs day before yesterday. so maybe ???? we might get them tomorrow? i think it is ridiculous, they don’t go without the money people owe them and if they do, we get charged interest and penalties… but if they owe US money, and we just so happen to (like me) have a vehicle break down on the side of the road, which is why we filed early in the first place, we are completely screwed and just have to wait. One way or another they will always find a way to screw us over. I bet none of their employees are going without making house payments, or replacing or repairing cars…

        • chris35ty says:

          @KristinaCarpenter I am wondering if it depends on where you filed? No clue. I have always had mine put into my bank account but they scammed me into the card this year. AWFUL! If they are getting theirs a day early are they also getting theirs put on the card?

          Sorry about your vehicle :( Hope we get them tomorrow!

        • chris35ty says:

          @KristinaCarpenter I meant the state where they’re filed but the fees should be the same for everyone!

        • @KristinaCarpenter @chris35ty

          yea u are so right i just want my money i think it should only take at the most is a week its pulled out its pulled out of our paychecks before we even get to see them

        • chris35ty says:

          @KristinaCarpenter The people who you say are getting them a day or so early are they also getting them put on the emerald card?

  144. Just got off the phone wit my tax company and the lady told me that they have not received any new checks for today and for me to call back tomorrow since wmr say the 7th I’m crossing my fingers……

  145. chris35ty says:

    Maggie have you gotten any updates recently?

  146. Snowbunny1366 says:

    I’m worried about this emerald card business now!!!!! I hope its on there tomarrow if not the 8th!!! It said by the 13th latest if not to call……………

    • chris35ty says:

      @Snowbunny1366 Yeah I know :( I am trying to find out that information. According to H&R Block woman she said to call the back to make sure its on there before I go spending. I just hope its there when it says. LOVE for it to be here tomorrow.

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @chris35ty ME TOO!! I been waiting for over two weeks :( AHHH. Do you know of anyone that has received their’s early and how early in the day do they inform you the money on the card?? I could be wrong LORD I hope I am but I thought I heard H&R block only did deposits on …..Friday….please tell me you heard different!!!!!

        • chris35ty says:

          @Snowbunny1366 I never heard such a thing! Read what I just posted… I am hoping it may help you

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @chris35ty WOW!! I hope your right let me know if you get yours in the morning girl

  147. chris35ty says:

    Here’s an interesting tidbit. When I got my emerald card H&R Block send a txt message to me telling me you can send BAL to 42265, text HELP for support, and stop to cancel. It goes with your last 4 of your emerald card. Well usually when I type in BAL I get a immediate response, this time I didn’t and nothing is showing up. I am HOPING they are updating my card. But if you guys have the emerald card and maybe this info will help you? I am hoping!

    • chris35ty says:

      WOW! I txt help and nothing either. I believe they are updating that card for preparation for $$$$$ whoohoo!!!

  148. Gagirl30032 says:

    Well I got an awesome update I called my tax preparer and she told me I was putting in the wrong amount so now it says dd 8th instead of no info on your return, so we will see what happens on the 8th, good luck everyone…

    • chris35ty says:

      @Gagirl30032 Yep that’s what I did too last week and put the right amount in and it worked. I also told Maggie to try that too. I hope tomorrow is a gOod day for everyone or Wednesday for that matter!

  149. joeyjersey24 says:

    i did my taxes on turbo tax e filed on the 1st of february it was accepted from the i.r.s same day last wednesday when should i receive it i selected direct deposit

    • chris35ty says:

      @joeyjersey24 Did you check the WMR on irs? I would say at least 10 days cause my co-worker did same thing. She filed on 1/24/2012 and got it 2/2/2012

    • joeyjersey24 says:

      chris35ty but i went on the wmr site and i wrote out my information it didnt say anything i filed on wendsday at 6 in the afternoon and it says 72 hours should i wait till after six cuz it doesnt say anything ??

      • chris35ty says:

        @joeyjersey24 Ok make sure you put the exact amount in when you filed cause that seems to be the problems people are having. I deducted the fees from H&R Block so it was messed up. If you did it last Wednesday, it should have some info for you

  150. Jan 23rd it got accepted the same day. WMR has said I would get my refund on Feb 7 it has said that since Jan 25. Yesterday it updated and said that I would receive my DD on Feb 8. So I called my bank and they said the funds were there and it would be released 12am on the 8th. So I hope everyone else gets theirs too.

    • chris35ty says:

      @Synn_r Why do they do that to people? You worked for it and earned it why can’t touch it til the 8th???? That’s ridiculous!

      • @chris35ty i know right…cause i know i really need it right now. i am just glad that its there. i used h&r block btw

        • chris35ty says:

          @Synn_r As so did I. Mine says to be released too on the 8th although its going to my emerald card. UGH!

  151. chris35ty says:

    This waiting game is a killer!

  152. does anyone know if the irs updates their website anytime of the day or is there a certain time?

  153. ElizabethRichards says:

    the irs keep changing they date on the schedule. i file on jan 29. my dd is feb 14 and i wonding why..it suppose to be feb8. which now is the 9 on they new schedule..anybody else file on the 29..with efile..

    • @ElizabethRichards

      i filed on the 1st and hrblock told me in the office the 15th then my email and customer service said the 8th and im doing the emerald card

  154. ElizabethRichards says:

    Note that the chart shows when the check or direct deposit will be sent, not necessarily received by you. Keep in mind, this is only for those who have chosen to e-file their return. Also, the IRS disclaims that this isn’t a guarantee that your return will be sent on these dates.

    • chris35ty says:

      @ElizabethRichards Your tax refund is scheduled to be Direct Deposited on February 8th, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 13, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it was received. Please wait until February 13, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.

      That was mine. So by the 8th for me

  155. MaggieBrown says:

    Looks like everyone is getting good news but me….. Good Luck everyone

    • chris35ty says:

      @MaggieBrown Now Maggie ya never can be sure about the IRS! They’re money grubbing butts! Keep checking tmrw too! Who knows if I’ll even get mine :(

    • @MaggieBrown

      so what news did u get i havent even got a hold of the irs lol

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @bitties they just keep telling me that its just being processed that its and no DD yet….Grrrrrrr

        • @MaggieBrown

          im still gettin the message on the website saying that they dont have any info for me but i called hrblock again and they still say the 8th so i hope they are right and everywebsite i look on says the 8th or 9th

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties i hope they r right 2

        • @MaggieBrown

          did u get urs done at hrblock

        • chris35ty says:

          @bitties @MaggieBrown I keep reading a lot of stuff people are posting and not liking what I am reading. Some people filed first of January and STILL haven’t got their DD :( This is some scary shit!

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty @bitties its the same thing with me….its really ticking me off to the FULLEST…..

        • @MaggieBrown @bitties Sure makes ya wonder. Am gonna say a prayer tonight for all of us hoping we get it soon. Good night and god bless I’ll post first thing in the morning regardless of the outcome.

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty @bitties good night sweet pea and ill say one too

        • @MaggieBrown @chris35ty

          me too im trying to be calm but its hard when u know u have money comin just dont know when it will get here

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties @chris35ty i know… its a shame that u have to wait this long for money that belong to u….so not cool

    • @MaggieBrown, You are not the only one, The IRS accepted my return on the 18th of January and I have not heard squat…

  156. underpaidlawyergirl says:

    Okay, I did receive my refund today -Monday, 2/6/12. I last checked my credit union around 7 a.m. still not in. Court went very late today so when I checked around 12- 1:00 PM, it was there. My guess is it deposited mid-morning today, just like my payroll does. I really believe everyone will have their refund on the date indicated particularly if the IRS WMR/automated line updated telling you the deposit is going to be made. Coming in a little earlier (like my refund did) most likely has to do with the banks etc. FYI: I am the one that the IRS WMR updated over the weeked moving my date of deposit from 1/7 to 1/8. But for the delays by the IRS, initially expected to have my refund by 2/1 (per IRS refund schedule). I filed and was excepted on 1/21. I also had a small offset that did not cause any issues ( I owed a small amount from a prior tax year). The refund I received was the amount I expected minus the offset. Hope this information helps. :)

    • chris35ty says:

      @underpaidlawyergirl Congrats! I still haven’t received mine. So are you basically saying that even though I haven’t received anything as of yet I can still check by noon and it may be on my emerald card?

  157. underpaidlawyergirl says:

    Hey, I just updated info on my refund. The dates I indicated of “1/7 to 1/8″ are wrong. I meant 2/7 to 2/8.

  158. Snowbunny1366 says:

    I’m so hoping for tomorrow. …..let it b the 7th but I will b happy for the eight too. Iv waited long enuff:(

  159. So it seems everybody is waiting much longer then 10 days.. Which sucks I used to receive my refund in 5 to 7 days with dd, now it’s 10 to 21..smh I probably would have been better off selecting check instead

  160. Jackieboo says:

    I idled on the 31st and got accepted the 31st. I checked WMR and its not saying nothing? Anybody else in the same boat?

    • chris35ty says:

      @Jackieboo Well, not really they are probably still processing it. Seems everyone is having between 14-20 days to actually receive anything from the IRS. I was a 1/24 filer and was supposed to get mine on 2/1 and here it is the 7th and still no money :(

      • Jackieboo says:

        @chris35ty Really? That sucks. What’s the hold up? And why are they giving dates when our money isn’t even going to be on there?

        • chris35ty says:

          @Jackieboo It’s such a mess! I have heard SO many stories. 1)IRS put a new tracking system on their computers for people committing fraud or identity theft 2)IRS starts ppl to let efile on the 17th of January and they didn’t anticipate that they would have as many so got overwhelmed with returns 3)They are just making sure everything is correct on the returns BLAH BLAH BLAH and 4) if you filed after 26th of January well then you wouldn’t see any delays cause you weren’t in the first batch.These stories are everywhere!

        • Jackieboo says:

          @chris35ty Thy should be on top of things. They dont do taxes everyday of the year.

        • chris35ty says:

          @Jackieboo Yes we’re all in the same boat. Doesn’t matter what they do. Someone posted on here yesterday that they had their money deposited but the bank wasn’t releasing it til the 8th. It’s their money they worked for it why not give it to them now??

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty @Jackieboo SAME HERE

        • @chris35ty The banks can hold your money until a certain date? I wonder what bank they have?

        • @Jackieboo No clue. I just told you what I read and it’s BS

        • @chris35ty Ughh this is so aggravating. Last year I filed on the 21st of january and received it on the 28th of january.

        • @Jackieboo Yes it is. My hands won’t quit itching tho both of them. One for bills and the other for extra lol

        • @chris35ty Lol. I know it. I have 2 kids both girls a 2 year old and a 10 month old and I’m 7 months prego. I need the money to fix there rooms and buy new stuff for the baby.

  161. Jackieboo says:

    *filed

  162. Every year says:

    Filed on 20th got accepted on 23rd with h&r block.no return.sister filed on 25th 5 days later with Jackson Hewitt and received hers on Jan 31.unreal.the IRS only does this once a year so the should already prepared way ahead of time.it’s always something.we need that money that they have no computer problems taking from us.and you would think h&r block would discount us for the delay.lol.not !!!!!

  163. Jackieboo says:

    I idled on the 31st and got accepted the 31st. I checked WMR and its not saying nothing? Anybody else in the same boat?

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @Jackieboo in the same DAMN boat… im so tired of them, just got phone with them and told me again that it can take up to 3 weeks and thats it….

      • Jackieboo says:

        @MaggieBrown This is crazy. We have things to do with our money and they are playing games

    • Mike in Los Angels says:

      @Jackieboo Filed 01/2012 efiled verified accepted by IRS & The State (CA) on 02/02/2012. As of todate, WMY is not reporting any activity on my account. Also, the State (CA) has confirmed receipt and approved of my return/refund on 02/02/2012. No DD from the State todate.

  164. auburngirl says:

    We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by February 7, 2012……. this is my status for 7 feb….CRAZY No deposit date check bank not deposited.

  165. Every year says:

    Got a date to go on from wmr..deposit date 2/8/12.I Hope it comes today.but tommorow would be ok.just tired of waiting.

  166. Every year says:

    I wonder if this tax bs is making everyone crazy.people just seem to be a bit snippy since all of this began with tax season.no good mornings.customer service everywhere I’ve delt with is a bit rude.I must admit I’ve tried to controll my own feelings with this bs.but it’s not ez.I found myself a bit snippy at times.you think we can get an emotional distress tax credit next year.lol……… Just trying to cheer myself and everyone else on here up.

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @Every year I HAVE CRIED, FUSS, CUSS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN….IM SO DONE….

      • Every year says:

        @MaggieBrown Be strong.I know it’s hard and these are hard times.but you have to be strong.those people in customer service at the IRS are so rude.I found out they only pissed me off more.so I stopped calling.Maggie have faith.god bless

  167. i just checked my wmr and it says its being processed and i should receive it by the 21st i have never had to wait this long

    • Every year says:

      @bitties I read on another site there was a way to check to see if your return was still in processing or not.i did it and it seemed to work.. You have to follow the prompts to request a transcript..if it allows you to do so your finished with processing.if not you’re still in proccessing.

  168. MaggieBrown says:

    ON HOLD NOW WITH IRS (CUSTOMER SERVICE)…..HAVE BEEN ON HOLD FOR 20 MINS

    • @MaggieBrown Keep us posted Maggie =) Give em HELL!

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty THE REP TOLD ME THAT IT IS STILL BEING PROCESSED (AS THEY ALWAYS SAY) AND THAT I DON;T HAVE NO DD YET AND THAT THEY DID RECEIVE IT ON THE 31ST AND THAT THEY HAVE A NEW SYSTEM SO EVERYONE INFO IS BEING RAN IN THE NEW WAY….I TOLD THAT MAN THIS SHIT DONT MAKE NO DAMN SENSE FOR ME TO PAY MY TAXES EVERY PAY PERIOD AND WHEN ITS TIME FOR ME TO GET MY F’ ING MONEY ( EXCUSE MY FRENCH YALL) I CANT GET THAT ON TIME REALLY….. AND THEN HE WAS CHECKING TO SEE IF I HAVE OFF SETS ( WHICH MEANS TO SEE IF U OWE ANYONE) (EX. MEDICAL BILLS, GOV’T,OR SCHOOL(F.A) AND WHEN HE DIDNT SEE NOTHING, HE SAID THAT I AM IN THE 90% THAT WILL RECEIVE B4 THE 3 WEEKS R UP BUT LIKE I TOLD HIM THATS NOT HELPING ME RIGHT NOW I HAVE A FAMILY THAT I NEED TO TAKE CARE JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE…. THEY DO TAXES ONCE A YEAR AND YA’LL CANT GET THIS SHIT TOGETHER AND HELL I TOLD HIM TO PUT ME BACK THERE I’LL GET IT TOGETHER BUT THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY ME EXTRA FOR MY SERVICE ( MAY I NOTE THAT I DON;T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT TAXES) NOW THAT I HAVE VENTED AND I TOLD HIM OFF I FEEL 1% BETTER….

        • @MaggieBrown UGH! What a load of crap! They love messing with peoples minds!

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty YES THEY DO

        • @MaggieBrown I dunno about mine yet. The lawyer girl said she tried in the morning and wasn’t there then after 12 it was. My hands are itching so badly so I am wondering

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty OMG… MINE WAS ITCHING ALL DAY SATURDAY WELL HELL BOTH OF THEM WAS BUT THATS OK THOUGH AT LEAST MY BILLS WILL BE TAKING CARE OF. AT LEAST I THOUGHT THEY WERE…

    • @MaggieBrown Any news?

  169. I filed on Feb 1st and I have checked mine 72 hours later and still no result…i see that the refund cycle chart has changed from it being the 8th to the 9th. What is really the issue with these ppl?? Ugh!! Gettn hella frutrated. Has anyone filed on the 1st received a refund yet?

  170. Sabrina Johnson says:

    I efiled and was accepted 2/2 so should I have my money 2/9?

    • @Sabrina Johnson sorry but don’t count on it closer to 2/16-2/18 unless you are one of the very few lucky ones good luck hope this helped.

    • @Sabrina Johnson sorry but don’t count on it closer to 2/16-2/18 unless you are one of the very few lucky ones good luck hope this helped.

    • @Sabrina Johnson if you filed on the Jan 27th – Feb 2 your return should be dd by the 9th…but with the way things are going with the IRS it is hard to say…i filed on the 1st and still have not been able to get a proposed dated yet.

      • Sabrina Johnson says:

        @MrsCook @Sabrina Johnson I hope I get it in the 9th. WMR says to expect it the following week but the chart says something different. Not quite sure what to think. I filed thru turbotax does that make a difference?

  171. MaggieBrown says:

    OK, TALKED TO THE LADY @ H&R BLOCK WHO DONE MY TAXES AND I QOUTE ” THE IRS WHERE’S MY REFUND SITE IS DOWN, WHICH IT’S GOING TO SAY EITHER U OWE TAXES BACK AND U ACTUALLY MIGHT NOT OR THEY DON;T HAVE NO INFO ON YOUR TAXES” SO SHE SAID THAT IN ORDER TO GET THE CORRECT INFORMATION U WOULD ACTUALLY HAVE TO TALK TO A “LIVE REP” TO FIND OUT WHATS GOING ON WITH UR TAXES…..HOPE THIS HELP YALL…. SO REALLY FOR THOSE WHO KEEP CHECKING THE WMR SITE IT DON’T MAKE SINCE NOW… AND IF U DO CALL TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE U ARE GOING TO BE WAITING “GREATER THEN 15 MINS”…….

  172. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Anybody for the 8th get their refund today?????? I did not :(………I hope tomarrow……………..

    • @Snowbunny1366 When did you file? I filed on the 1st and i still cant find out if my refund has been processed yet. I filed joint return with my husband.

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @MrsCook I filed mine on Jan 18th accepted on Jan 19th – my status finally changed this past sunday morning (2/5) – it was processing for almost two weeks. It said I my refund should be DD on Feb 8th and if not recived by Feb 13 to call…mine is on the BS emerald card

        • @Snowbunny1366 that is a bunch of crock..that is well over 3 weeks and a long time to wait especially if you e-filed…it is supposed to only take 10-14 days and i am not sure if weekends are included in these days. Hope things change for you soon.

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @MrsCook I know :(, This is the first time I did the emerald card, and H&R Block never notified me of any delays I read bout them……you guessed on the internet, I been on this blog thing since Jan 23. I hope its tomarrow

        • @Snowbunny1366 i’ll say a prayer for us because this is gettn frustrating for people…i have been checking mine everyday and no result .

        • Snowbunny1366 says:

          @MrsCook Thank you, I’m praying with you.

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @Snowbunny1366 well on the chart it said the 9 of feb..

      • Snowbunny1366 says:

        @ElizabethRichards Wut chart ???? Cause every chart I looked has been wrong is there a new one

        • @Snowbunny1366 the IRS has a Refund Cycle Chart on their website it tells you and anticipated date but I was told by the IRS Rep that it is not accurate because of the delays that they have.

  173. I feel like the commercial, “IT’S MY MONEY AND I NEED IT NOW!!”

  174. JudesMommy says:

    we filed around noon on 1/27/12.. was told dd would be 2/6/12.. Bank shows no pending deposits on our account and said it has to sit for a certain amount of time before the bank will process it so I called the IRS. Was first told to wait until the 8th, then she says no the 9th, well we will try and send out the dd’s on the 9th but it could be the 11th.. I filed my taxes myself on H&R blocks website like I have done the past 4 yrs, this is the first year of any problems.. This is insane. Our truck broke down last week and I need this money to repair it.

  176. i filed the 1st as well and still can’t get any info

    • @meast07 me either and it seems like if you filed and they say wait 72 hours before you check the status of your refund it would at least give you a proposed date to when you may get your money back…all i have been told by my tax preparer is that i had to wait 10-14 days.

  177. i know how you feel…my car has been down for almost 6 months now and i am anticipating on gttn it fixed as soon as i get my taxes back but this wait is making me very irritated.

  178. Hey guys….have been following posts for the past few days and slowly began to get nervous! I filed on 1/28 after 4pm. Conformation text came an hour after. Original date for DD was 2/14 on IRS site. Had mine put on Emerald card. Checked IRS site yesterday and date was changed to 2/8 for DD, so I called the IRS…..was told that funds will be released to bank by 6am tomorrow morning…..but the bank can hold deposit for 3-5 days…..so I called H&R and asked for a supervisor. Was told that funds will be on card by 6am tomorrow morning because they get the funds from IRS at midnight, take out their fees then credit card immediately with no holds.
    I asked if she WAS SURE….was told that the automated system at IRS has the accurate info for deposit date since glitch has been fixed…..if it says the 8th, its gonna be released to your bank (which may hold it) or the card on that date……….hope this helps. Good luck everyone :)

    • Snowbunny1366 says:

      @DivaGurl Really 6 a.m.!!!! Cause mine is the emerald card too and I am scheduled for 2marrow!!!

    • chris35ty says:

      @DivaGurl LOL I called H&R today stating that the WMR said mine is to be DD into my bank and I said I got it on the card so are they depositing it into my bank? She said no its the emerald card bank and it could be anytime tomorrow but IRS is telling them that it WILL be the 8th that these are released. Then she tell that they are sending our state by paper? We selected option for that to be deposited into OUR bank and she says no. So I told my husband when he gets home he can call the bank and see if ANY thing has been deposited

      @DivaGurl good luck..my still said the 14 of feb and i filed on the 30..i call and irs said the 14..i was like but the chart do not have no date for the 14..she could not answer me..i hope mine dd change but it still said the 14..

    • chris35ty says:

      @DivaGurl I so hope you are right. I am tired of the run around and this money. It’s given me more of a headache and a stomach ache worrying :(

  179. Kellisa mclemore says:

    hi guys I filed on the 24th and at first said I would get my dd on the 3rd then changed to the 4-14th then finally the 7th. Yesterday, when I checked it, it says it is now being processed and can take up to 6 weeks…..BS.

    • @Kellisa mclemore According to their refund cylce chart you should have gttn ur refund on the 2nd…that is crazy and I still say why do they even have this chart and not going by the dates on it…silly BS!!

      • Kellisa mclemore says:

        @MrsCook ya I honestly dont understand what is going on..it blows my mind how it had a set date now says processing takes up to 6 weeks ….ughhhh

        • This is what mine is asying on th wmr website:

          Refund Status Results

          Your tax return has been received and is being processed.

          If you file a complete and accurate tax return, your refund will be issued: within six weeks of the received date. But I originally had a dd date of Feb 1……

  180. On the phone with the IRS now…waitn on hold…

    • @MrsCook what is the number everytime i call i get the the system that just tells me it is being processed.i did mine on the 27th and got the comformation a hour later but it still says processing and its been 11 day

      • @noah28 1-800-829-1040 and don’t choose any prompts jus let it go to representative…waiting time is over 15 min tho

    • Kellisa mclemore says:

      @MrsCook hahah i was on hold for 35 minutes and gave up..good luck :)

  181. Just got off the phone with the IRS and they told me that my return had been received and it was still being processed. She says that the refund cycle chart is not accurate and that we should not expect the dates to be accurate. She says that mine will probably be available on the 22nd of this month and that I should check back with the WMR in a day or two. It can take up to three weeks to process and it is taking a long time to get the refunds back because of EIC and dependants that have to be processed on the return as well. I hope this helps some of you and the returns from 01/01-01/24 had a two week delay because they are a week behind with their system.

    • Kellisa mclemore says:

      @MrsCook when did you file

      • @Kellisa mclemore Feb 1st

        • I filed on the 1st also and the bank said to expect it by the 15th, and the wmr site said by the 2st I should receive it. I dont understand because my cousin used turbo tax and did their’s on the 27th of jan and received it in their bank exactly one week later…

        • @everyone i have been looking at a refund chart that gives you a anticipated date but i was told it is not accurate. I filed with my local tax preparer and she told me it could take 10-14 days where in the past it only took 7-10 days. They have changed their system and so call claim to be a week behind, She said this was broadcasted on the news but i cant find it. I found that they started accepting returns on the 17th of Jan.

    • @MrsCook

      is she sayin it will be direct deposited by the 22nd or mailed to u?

      • @bitties direct deposit. i e-filed and she said that it is taking longer because they are behind. it is nothing that we are doing wrong it all on they end of the stick where the problem is.

        • @MrsCook

          this just sucks i wish hrblock would of not givin me a date so i wouldnt be on lookin for it

        • ElizabethRichards says:

          @bitties @MrsCook i am sorry for that. that is why this year i did it myself..and look i am in the same boat..but the only thing i did not paid all of that high fee. what is it:?? like 400..right..

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties @MrsCook IKR… THEY GOT ME LOOKING CRAZY CALLING THE IRS EVERYDAY ON THE HOUR

        • ElizabethRichards says:

          @MaggieBrown @bitties @MrsCook shot…you want your money..but we cannot rush it..their going to take they sweet time..that is some bs..

        • @ElizabethRichards @bitties that is for the anticipated rapid refund e-file is direct deposit to a bank account or prepaid card. my tax preparer has the western union prepaid cards and it is a very high amount to do rapid refund…here it is like 200-350 depending on how much your refund is.

        • @ElizabethRichards @MrsCook

          i paid 200 but still i was wantin that money i had to stop work cause my 3year old got really sick and i had to stay home to take care of him i just wanted to be alil comfortable while i did that i guess thats not whats in the cards for me

        • @bitties did you file rapid refund? You should’ve been gttn ur refund back. Have you talked to the IRS?

        • @MrsCook

          no they wont let us do rapid refund at hr they said only the rac loan thats it

  182. Has anyone received their refund today who was scheduled for the 7th??

  183. Wmr says for me that I should receive my refund by today. Call my tax preparer and my check wasn’t there. I talked to a IRS rep and she told me it should be there by friday…..wtf is goin on??

    • @Nesha22 They claim to be a week behind on processing returns and they had it on the news. It will probably be there Friday. I would go with the IRS Representative since they do have actual access to the returns. They were able to tell me more than what i found out using WMR. Hope things turn around for you and you get ur return soon. :-)

  184. ElizabethRichards says:

    what is WMR? Sorry i am slow..lol

  185. MaggieBrown says:

    DO ANY ONE KNOW IF THE WMR SITE IS FIXED NOW?????

    • @MaggieBrown the rep i was on the phone with says she keeps gettin a Server Error i havent checked mine since i gt off the phone.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @MrsCook ITS STILL ACTING LIKE I DONT HAVE NO INFO

        • @MaggieBrown she says that it has been giving them and us problems. I was gttn the same info but she said to check back in a day or two. I know you have been waitin longer than me and it is making you wanna gt irate with them. I am going to hold off and wait a few days before I check it again. Of course my husband will be in to check for me this evening when he gets in, he’s jus as anxious as we are. lol

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @MrsCook mine is to since we filed 2gether

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @MaggieBrown it give me feb 14..

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @MaggieBrown mines keep said 14..i check it everyday every hour..no

  186. ElizabethRichards says:

  187. ElizabethRichards says:

    ok..this is the deal….my refund get push ahead a week so really..it been push not for the 9 but for the feb 14..there nothing wrong with my refund..it just been push on the 14..so i asked well it be released on the 15. or will i get it on the 14..she said the date is the 14..well we will see. i am tried..of this bs..that why??alot of ppl do not paid for the taxes..i need my money. i have to tell cable will my refund get push ahead of 2weeks. can you please give me 14 more day..what a joke…lol

  188. Filed on 18 th still no money. Is anyone else filed that far back and still no dd? Date keeps changing 7 then 8… I paid for this, should of did them myself

    • chris35ty says:

      @cadejayash Filed 1/24 and supposed to be DD tomorrow the 8th

    • Kim20082010 says:

      @cadejayash I e-filed mine on tax act on the 20th & it was excepted the same day, our dd was suppose to be on feb 1st then turned to the 7th & now the 8th. Im really starting to get agitated at the IRS. If we owe them money we have to pay right away but they obviously don’t like paying us on time. Hopefully everyone’s comes in in the morning.

  189. The IRS did not start initiating or accepting e-file until January 17, 2012. This means for us that they are a week behind schedule and it may take longer to process and receive your refund. Sorry to hear this myself.

    • chris35ty says:

      e @MrsCook Yah I knew about when they were accepting them. Makes ya wonder why the 17th?

      • @chris35ty right…it makes me wonder what is the actual date that they started accepting them in the prior years. I have e-filed before and it took no longer than 7 days but they say now they are checking every little piece of info to crack down on Identity theft and tax fraud this year. They also have changed their system too.

  190. bandit954 says:

    dd.on the way to the bank.

  191. bandit954 says:

    DD.going to my bank now.I

    e.file on the 1/17.

  192. chris35ty says:

    @bandit954 Are you positive that’s a safe site?

  193. MaggieBrown says:

    i just got off the phone with the IRS again and i spoke with a lady and she told me that since the website been messing up that, u have to call them to see what is the correct DD that u have…ugh and also they know how many times u call to b/c they notate how many times u call….lol

    • chris35ty says:

      @MaggieBrown Tell me that doesn’t include me??? The WMR works fine for me and H&R says its correct because IRS told them that batches were going out tomorrow.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty i hope they get mine right cause they still saying that mines still in process

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown Mine was in process for a week and a half. Until this previous weekend

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown Ohhh and get this! Husband called the bank a bit ago and our state has already been direct deposited into our bank! UGH Imagine that will ya!?!?!

  194. UPDATE: I found out you can check the status of your refund by your state revenue website. I am a resident of Mississippi and it tells me that my refund has not been processed yet. Try to google or ask.com and search for check the status of filed refund in ________(your state). This may give you more info. Hope this helps!

  195. chris35ty says:

    Called H&R Block just a few minutes ago. I asked her if the WMR has been down and not correct she said it was but now its not. She said the IRS had said they were trying to get everything out by the 7th and 8th of February. I asked if I should call them to get a correct DD but she said I can but I would only get a recording. WHATEVER!

    • chris35ty says:

      Also, it claims if your return is 8-12 weeks late talk to a representative. So I would feel stupid calling. Should I still call?

      • @chris35ty I would call still because if you have been waiting since january and not heard anything from them i would want to know what is taking so long. BTW: if you do call be prepared to be on hold greater than 15 mins.

        • ElizabethRichards says:

          @MrsCook @chris35ty more like 40 minutes..

        • chris35ty says:

          @MrsCook Yes but this is what happened. I filed the 24th and chose the Emerald Card which I wish I had never. The preparer stated that when we woke up it would be on that card on the 1st of February. It wasn’t. Thus finding out all the turmoil all these people have been having. My status until this past Sunday was being processed and should be around the 7th. Then Sunday it says will be direct deposited on February 8th. So and also spoke to H&R they said should be on there in the morning. I can’t take another disappointment. I will just wait til in the morning and if it’s not there I guess I will call. It could be anytime of tie day tho :(

        • chris35ty says:

          @ and if being a week late on returns, that clearly means tomorrow cuz last wednesday was our DD date

        • chris35ty says:

          @MrsCook Btw, was looking at something you posted earlier about going to ask.com and asking about checking on a refund through your state? Well, I found mine which is in Ohio and it says my funds were direct deposited on 2/1/2012. What’s up with that????

        • @chris35ty that is a good question…Have you tried calling the bank where you gt it DD at? I would think if the state has the refund deposited then you should be able to access the funds as well and have full access to your refund.

        • chris35ty says:

          @MrsCook No only because like an idiot I chose the Emerald Card this year. Believe me, it would have already been in my bank if I had but H&R insisted on a quicker refund with the Emerald Card. Next year I will do my taxes myself and have it DD in my bank!

        • ElizabethRichards says:

          @chris35ty @MrsCook yes do it yourself..everybody learn from they own mistake..

        • chris35ty says:

          @ElizabethRichards @MrsCook Well I used to but when my husband was getting unemployment I was confused so went to H&R and next year I will do it myself cause there aren’t any forms for unemployment anymore

        • @chris35ty I agree i had mine DD on Western Union Card…I dont know if i will be having the same problem b/c my tax preparer is keeping track of the card and when the funds will post to it. I have heard from a lot of ppl that the Western Union card is a good unlike some of the others. I was going to file them myself this year but husband did not have a valid ID to do it.

        • ElizabethRichards says:

          @MrsCook @chris35ty to file on line..you do not need a valid id..you just need your w2 and ss..that all

        • chris35ty says:

          @MrsCook Yeah well I am DUMB! Never again never again…. this is so awful

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @chris35ty tomorrow is for who people who file for the jan 26 thru feb 1..I hope..

  196. ElizabethRichards says:

    i did not do hr..i did it myself..so i just have to wait for it..that all i could do..

    • @ElizabethRichards you should be able to check the status of your refund through the software that you used being that you filed them yourself.

  197. ElizabethRichards says:

    on the chart it said from jan 26 thru feb 2..they get their feb 9..but you said chris35. it is wednesday..maybe soo

  198. ElizabethRichards says:

    i went back to wmr..and now it said that my refund is being processing..my dd for the 14 is gone..it will take up to 3 weeks it said..wth is going on?

  199. Refund Status Results

    Your tax return has been received and is being processed.

    If you file a complete and accurate tax return, your refund will be issued: within six weeks of the received date. But originally had Feb.7 as my dd date! Anybody had this happen to them? If so do you know why?

  200. I just found a website that said the IRS is delaying refunds doe to the Tax Relief Act and will not be processing some tax returns until the middle or late February @ http://www.about.com Topic IRS To Delay Accepting Some Tax Returns Until February.

    • chris35ty says:

      @MrsCook Yeah but that’s dated 2011. Go to about.com and type in search bar when to expect your tax refund for 2012

      • @chris35ty i didnt see that until a while ago…lol

        • chris35ty says:

          @MrsCook Oh its ok. Everyone is so pissed off we try to find whatever we can on the whole situation. I for one have been going everywhere

        • @chris35ty I think this is crazy and the fact that we have to go all around the world to find out where our money is, is crazy. I see where they have the delay but it would be nice if they notified the ppl that prepare your taxes.

    • chris35ty says:

      @MrsCook Said they do DD on Wednesdays and checks on Friday

      • chris35ty says:

        @MrsCook That kinda makes sense. When I filed on the 24th 7 days would have been Tuesday but instead it said Wednesday.

  201. @snowbunny1366 – email me at ksoape36@yahoo.com

  202. The IRS normally starts to accept returns on 01/15 but was two days late this year which is why the refunds are screwed up. On a news channel it states that ppl that filed there taxes on Jan 17th is suppose to get their refund on the 1st of Feb but they anticipate that it could be later because of the new system and the website that H&R Block knew about this delay before hand.

  203. ElizabethRichards says:

    i just call the irs and she told me that they are updated the wmr site..so check back in 2 hrs..i was like i had a date..now it no date. she was like we have up to 3 week to process your refund..i was like really..and hung up??? i m so irate with them..like why get stink with me..you know everyone needs they money..lol..WTH

    • chris35ty says:

      @ElizabethRichards Yeah well with that being said look at the people who paid extra to have it in a week? “We have up to 3 weeks to process your refund” well then make H&R reimburse its customers!

      • ElizabethRichards says:

        @chris35ty just is why i did it myself..all that money for what..2 weeks or more delay..when everyone was looking at 7 days or less refund..shame on irs..for real

        • chris35ty says:

          @ElizabethRichards Yes but really shame on H&R for knowing the truth and trying to make an easy buck!

  204. MaggieBrown says:

    OK, SO WHAT DID I MISS…..I’VE BEEN AT WORK….

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @MaggieBrown alot..read over..

    • chris35ty says:

      @MaggieBrown A lot of complaints lol and if tomorrow I don’t get my refund ill be one pissed off woman!

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty I WAS READING WHAT YA’LL WAS TALKING ABOUT….I CAN’T STAND WHEN ONE PERSON TELL U SOMETHING AND THEN WHEN U SPEAK TO SOMEONE ELSE THEY TELL U SOMETHING ELSE….I WON’T FORWARD FOR MINE UNTIL PROBABLY NEXT WEEK…..THEM BITCHES…. SORRY YA’LL IM JUST THAT PISSED OFF NOW….

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown That is just it. I don’t wanna even try calling the them on the phone because if I do I won’t be responsible for what I say and I am over stressed as it is lol

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty LMAO…..I KNOW THATS RIGHT

        • ElizabethRichards says:

          @MaggieBrown @chris35ty i know..i just have to sit it out..lol..

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown I am gonna go by what DivaGurl said earlier today. We will see if I have money on the card at 6 am although H&R said it could be any time of day. If IRS deposits it at midnight tonight then by golly it should be there in the morning

  205. chris35ty says:

    Hey guys check this out: themilitarywallet.com/irs-federal-tax-refund-schedule/

    • @chris35ty I tried but couldn’t for sum reason what’sits deal. Are the dates different

      • chris35ty says:

        @cadejayash Totally. Copy what I wrote down and paste it in your browser or search bar. Can’t click on it through here. Everyone needs to read it

  206. I read where someone got there dD today but I thought It doesn’t go out till midnight. What the truth. I’ve been waiting since 18 when I did mine

    • chris35ty says:

      @cadejayash Yes I know. I filed 6 days after you. IRS doesn’t release the funds until midnight is what I read so therefore clients not getting it til that day. That is exactly what Divagurl said

  207. My nerves shot….

  208. chris35ty says:

    How to use this chart: If you filed your taxes with E-File, you should receive a confirmation that your tax return was accepted by the IRS. This date will go in the left column. If you didn’t file your taxes electronically, then this chart may not be useful for you for two reasons: you won’t have a confirmation date regarding when your tax return was accepted, and paper tax returns are manually entered by IRS employees, so the process takes longer.

    Jan 17 and Jan 18, 2012 (DD) Delayed 1-2 weeks(Paper check)*Delayed 1-2 weeks

    Jan 19 and Jan 25, 2012 (DD)Delayed 1-2 weeks(Paper check)*Delayed 1-2 weeks*

    • chris35ty says:

      I only posted those dates cause that’s where most all of us are dealing with.

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @chris35ty and see like i said i filed on the 31st of Jan and im suppose to get mine tomorrow but they claim its still being processed but still when i go on line it dont have no info on my damn return

      • chris35ty says:

        @MaggieBrown Right and its saying 1-2 weeks delayed

        • chris35ty says:

          @MaggieBrown Whoops yours shouldnt be delayed. Did you check WMR again?

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty yeah and this is what it said ”

          Refund Status Results

          We are sorry, we cannot provide any information about your refund.

          It can take up to 3 weeks to process your return. Please wait at least one week before you log-on again to check the status of your refund.”

    • Sabrina Johnson says:

      so is the chart above not correct? i efiled and was accepted 2/2 when should i recieve my refund?

      • chris35ty says:

        @Sabrina Johnson Feb 15th according to that schedule

        • Sabrina Johnson says:

          @chris35ty was the schedule revised because the one at the beginning of this topic shows 2/9 for a date.

        • chris35ty says:

          @Sabrina Johnson Only because of all the difficulties IRS have been having with their new systems. Its ridiculous!

  209. MaggieBrown says:

          see i have no dd it just says i should receive it by the 21st just no it said no info on my tax return lol

      • JamieAllen says:

        @bitties I filed on the 31st and it says I won’t receive it till the 21st. Don’t get your hopes up. They probably cut off after the 26th. But that means we should get ours like next week.

  227. crystal62301 says:

    my coworker did direct deposit thru hr block on the 27th of jan, and they got their money on their emerald card last thursday the 2nd thats was only 6 days!!!! i did mine the same day thru turbo tax and im supposed to get mine today

    • crystal62301 says:

      and they said hr block told them they wouldnt get it until today so maybe yall will get it sooner than it says

  228. crystal62301 says:

    got it at 6 am

  229. crystal62301 says:

    but i signed up for text alert and got no text message so keep checkin your card dont ust wait for the text

    Good luck everyone!!!

  230. Snowbunny1366 says:

    Got mine too this morning Emerald card :)

  231. Just a heads up….got a text from H&R @ 2:30am…funds on emerald card. DD of 2/8….filed on 1/28. Good luck guys….its coming. …….

  232. Woke this a.m. to check and my DD should be available to me on the 21st. Feel a lot better knowing that it has been processed and i hope it comes before then.

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @MrsCook mines too, but it said by the 21st… so that means on that date r like really b 4 that date

      • @MaggieBrown I gt an email from Western Union and that who I had my funds dd to stated the refunds would be dd a week later than expected.

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @MrsCook so u have to wait another b/c of the card u have

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @MrsCook im calling them now to find out

        • @MaggieBrown @MrsCook

          u would think that hrblock being such a big company would let their customers know but i know people who have went to other places and have gottin their taxes on time and the delay was suppose to be for those who filed before the 26th so that means they are going to be messed up for the rest of tax season lol

        • @MaggieBrown yea, that is what i am understanding from the email and tax preparer. I called them this a.m. to see if they had my money on my card. They are notified when the money is deposited.

  233. i filed on the 1st before 11am i hope something happens today

  234. Whereisit says:

    Finally they showed me the money Dd for today and recieved at 5am ., filed on 1-21,. Had it put on card.

  235. Gagirl30032 says:

    I got mines dd this morning guys, thanks for sharing yall story it really helped me get through this and good luck to the ones who have not received anything yet…

  236. I went to a website and saw where some people that filed there taxes on the 29 and gt they refund dd on their card a week later. I hope this is the outcome for us all, we been waiting to find out something and I can say a little info is not enough. We want to know if we gne gt our money today…Let’s start a Riot!!1 LOL!!

  237. Just called my tax preparer and she says that my refund has not been dd yet and I filed on the 1st ugh!! Was so hoping to hear come pick up your card.

    • @MrsCook

      did she tell u it would be here on the 8th

      • @bitties no she told me the same thing that the WMR said she said they are a week behind.

        • @MrsCook

          this sucks i got mine done by 11am on the 1st so it would be here

        • @bitties My tax preparer said that it is the IRS they have nothing to do with the late refunds and that everyone is having this issue. I was hoping for mine too. I really need my car fixed asap.

        • @MrsCook

          i will probably get my state before i get my federal lol

    • @MrsCook Didn’t they give you an emerald card same day you filed? Mine did

      • @chris35ty no, in I had to leave it with them because i didnt have the filing fee the day i went and filed so she said that when it got DD she would let me know and i could come in and we then swipe the card and pay for it when i pick it up.

  238. Dear Valued Western Union® Cardholder, As we always strive to provide the best possible service, we wanted to provide you with an update from the IRS about tax refunds. The IRS recently informed us that they are in the process of fine-tuning their systems to add new safeguards to protect against refund fraud. Due to these ongoing changes, if you have chosen to have your tax refund sent directly to your Western Union® Prepaid Card this year, you may receive your refund approximately ONE WEEK LATER than the date you were originally expecting. While this is completely out of our control, we are sincerely sorry that you are going to have to experience this delay, but we wanted to proactively provide our customers with this information. If you have any questions about your refund, about the timing or otherwise, feel free to contact the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1954 or visit the IRS’s “Where’s My Refund?” page. Sincerely, Western Union

  239. MaggieBrown says:

    QUESTION FOR ANYONE…..WHEN EVERYONE WAS CHECKING THERE WMR SITE FOR THERE DD….. DID IT SAY “We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by ” WHAT EVER YOUR DD WAS…. BECAUSE MINE SAID THAT BUT “BY FEB. 21, 2012″

    • We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by February 21, 2012.

      This is mine too. I talked to the IRS yesterday and the Rep told me she estimated it being dd by the 22nd so she was only a day off. They told me when i filed that it would take 10-14 days to gt dd.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @MrsCook I PROBABLY GOING TO GET IT ON THE 17TH LIKE MINS CAUSE I JUST CALLED AND THAT’S WHAT THEY TOLD ME… SO GOOD LUCK WITH THAT ONE

        • JamieAllen says:

          I’ve heard that they only do deposits on Wednesdays so it will likely be on either the 15 or the 22.

  240. chris35ty says:

    My refund took exactly 2 weeks. Filed on 1/24 was accepted an hour later. Was supposed to be here today but received the text last night around 9:30 pm. It’s coming guys yours will come and I know how frustrating it is! I am saying a prayer for all of you who haven’t received it gets it very soon!

  241. MaggieBrown says:

    U GUYS THE SYSTEM I THINK IS STILL WRONG B/C I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH THE IRS AND THEY TOLD ME THE 17TH I WAS GOING TO HAVE MY MONEY BUT THE SUTE SAID THE 21ST…… SO U MUST CALL TO MAKE SURE THAT’S THE CORRECT DATE…….YAYYYYYY, BUT WAIT A MIN… I WON’T BELIEVE UNTIL I SEE IT….THANK GOD ANYWAY FOR HIS MANY BLESSINGS THAT EVERYONE IS RECEIVING…..

    • Every year says:

      @MaggieBrown Magg it coming.what I did was kept myself busy to take my mind off of all this bs.and when I least expected it.I got the text.needless to say I was in a bar.a lot of us on here for the past weeks have finally gotten they’re money.so there’s hope that you and others will be next.

    • @MaggieBrown it may be the 15th…i am keeping my fingers crossed the IRS website says a week later than the expected date so if we were expecting them to DD on the 8th or 9th then it will be the 15th or the 16th I hope. Praying with you Maggie!!

  242. January 26, 2012: Refund Status

    The IRS has opened its filing season successfully this month, and refunds have started going out to many taxpayers. As with the start of any tax season, there are system validations that occur requiring some fine-tuning of our systems.

    As part of this, some taxpayers will receive refunds approximately one week later than initial projections they may have received, but these are still in line with historical refund delivery times.

    The IRS reminds taxpayers that refund time frames provided by “Where’s My Refund” and tax providers are projected time frames and are subject to revision. Many different factors can affect the timing of the refund after the IRS receives the return for processing.

    The IRS apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the revised refund dates.

    When the IRS announced the opening of the 2012 filing season, it advised taxpayers who electronically file and select direct deposit that they could see their refunds in as few as 10 days and 90 percent of refunds are provided within 21 days. Some taxpayers are getting refunds much faster, but at this time taxpayers should expect refunds to be issued as indicated in the original IRS guidelines.

    The one-week delay for some refunds relates to fine-tuning IRS systems to adjust for new safeguards put in place this tax season to provide stronger protection against refund fraud. The IRS is providing additional screening for fraud this year before issuing refunds, but the vast majority of taxpayers can still continue to expect to receive their refunds in a timely fashion.

  246. whats the number where I can see whats going on with my tax refund because this is ridiculous.

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @DawnZar HOTLINE IS 800-829-1954……. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS 800-829-1040 AND KEEP PRESSING 0 UNTIL U TALK TO SOMEONE….

  247. Duvalgirl74 says:

    This site is so helpful because I’m hating the IRS right now! I thought that the only ones to b delayed was the ppl that filed b4 Jan 25th but I can’t tell! Mine was accepted on Jan 31st and my dd date was to b today!! But nothing but a message on WMR that’s saying I should receive it by Jan 21st and that’s some BS!!

  248. i finally got a deposit date its feb 13 thank god

    • MaggieBrown says:

    • Duvalgirl74 says:

      @bitties Did u have to call to find that out for feb 13 or u actually talked to someone?

    • @bitties does your WMR state that you will have the DD on the 13th or does it still give you the by date?

    • MaggieBrown says:

  249. eastcoastjr says:

    Did anyone that was scheduled to receive there money today get it? I was supposed to get mine today and nothing called bank and they said they do not see anything coming in on there end either.

    • Every year says:

      @eastcoastjr I was suppose to receive mine on the 1st then the 7th then the 8th was the solid date with the amount I was receiving

  250. Got one question for you guys…Does the WMR give you a date that states the possible date of deposit? Or does it just give us the by date and nothing else? Just curious.

    • they told me it would be deposited on that day i hope so

    • Every year says:

      @MrsCook It will give you the date and the amount when it’s finished and ready for dd on that date.it won’t give you it’s in processing and you should receive by this date junk

  251. MaggieBrown says:

    JUST CALLED THE IRS AGAIN THEY TOLD ME MY DD WAS THE 13TH AND I JUST CHECKED WMR SITE AND NOW ITS SAYING NO INFO ON ME WHY IS THAT….. IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE SITE…..

    • @MaggieBrown

      hi how u doin i was jus wonderin when u file and when did u get ur date because i filed on the third and i been lookin on the wmr site and it say check by weekly sum like that but i never got a date so should i call the irs or is the system down thank u

      • @mellz@MaggieBrown I also filed on the third and it still shows nothing, I called and they don’t show anything either. But the web site does say not to call, as if it doesn’t show on there, they will not have any more information from it.

    • @MaggieBrown working fine for me…still gt that it is processing and should receive it by 21st.

    • @MaggieBrown yes they told me it was under construction

    • Duvalgirl74 says:

      @MaggieBrown What day was yours accepted again?

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @MaggieBrown that is what it was doing to me yesterday..but my dd came back today!!! it still said the 14..

  252. anybody file on the 3rd of febuary get any information back on the wmr website

    • @mellz I dont know about the 3rd but I filed on the 1st and according to the Refund Cycle Chart (which is only estimated) your refund DD is Feb. 15.

    • j from ATL says:

      @mellz

      I actually filed on the 5th of February. The IRS accepted my return the same day and when I check “Where’s My Refund” it tells me I should receive my refund the February 21st.

  253. From my research that I have done so far no one that filed after Jan. 26th should be affected by the delay. But i have seen ppl that have filed on dates later than the 26th who have not gt their refund yet. Don’t know what to think about that.

  254. I filed mines on the 18th and haven’t received mines the sight said I was to receive it by the 7th now there
    is no date and no check! Sucks!

  255. auburngirl says:

    We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Your expected refund date has been changed due to processing delays. You should receive your refund by February 7, 2012. Please wait until that date to contact us again because we cannot take any action until then. Thank you for your patience. TOO FUNNY TODAY IS THE 8TH!!!! OUR GOVERMENT AT WORK!!!!!

  262. ok i wanted tooo ask a question this is very confusing i filled on the 4 th gotten accepted on the 5th of febuary i waited 3 days on the wmr and it says it can take up too 3 weeks an i havent gotten any word from them but when i use a prepaid card i got it says payday in 9 days which leads too the 17 is anyones like that please help btw i used turbo tax

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @martin51 U HAVE TO WAIT LITERALLY A WEEK TO SEE IT ON THE WMR SITE…. EVEN THOUGH THAEY SAID U CAN SEE IT IN 72 HOURS…

      THAT’S TRUE B/C OF THE DELAYS THEY ARE HAVING…..

      • @MaggieBrown ok thank you maggie. so this should really take up too 3 weeks then right ?

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @martin51 PROBABLY B/C I FILED ON THE 31ST AND IT WAS ACCEPTED THE SAME DAY…. AND I WAS SUPPOSE TO GET IT ON THE 8TH BUT IM GETTING MINE ON THE 13TH… SO REALLY IT JUST VARIES… BUT IT MIGHT BE A WEEK IN A HALF TO TWO….

  263. Jackieboo says:

    Went to WMR. And now there is no info on me. Called my bank to see if anything is pending, still nothing :(

    She did efile on Feb.1 at Jackson Hewitt and they called her to pick up her check Feb.8

  265. eastcoastjr says:

    i am on the line with bank now. i filled the 29th and still nothing.

    • @eastcoastjr

      did u call the irs hotline the automated service gave me my deposit just changed this morning

      • Duvalgirl74 says:

        @bitties did it still say your DD date was the 13th?

        • @Duvalgirl74

          yes it is i talked to a reprensitive and i called 1800 829 1040 and it said it too did u get a dd day

        • Duvalgirl74 says:

          @bitties Well I haven’t called and spoke with no one but maybe I need to cause I haven’t got nothing from turbo tax and now it’s nothing on WMR!

  266. eastcoastjr says:

    When i call the hotline and check the site no information on me. I don’t get it.

  267. How ironic is it that the website is telling everyone the same thing; there in no info on mine now no matter which social I enter. I call the hotline and it still says that it is being processed and I should receive my refund by the 21st. This WMR is supposed to be accurate and have the same info that the hotline does but it doesn’t. If it is under construction they are slow at fixing it and they even have the audacity to have a message that tells you all of this and to do not call the reps because they can not give you any info more than what the website and hotline are telling you. Why be so hostile with us when the IRS is the blame and don’t let me forget the Congress as well. If they took the time to get their shit together a year in advance we would not have this sort of problem and we “Hard Working Americans” worked for our money and they give us the cold shoulder because we are concerned about our money and our financial situations at home. Oh and the hotline also stated that “it takes 10-21 days to receive your refund after the IRS has accepted your return.”

  268. I filed before 11AM on Jan 31st. Although the refund cycle chart says I should have it on the 9th, WMR (before it started not working) said the 14th, and I just called the hotline and they also say the 14th. I wonder if my landlord will accept the excuse that the IRS is keeping my money?

  269. MaggieBrown says:

    THE SITE IS MESSING UP AGAIN B/C I CHECKED IT TO MAKE SURE MY DD IS THE 13TH AND ITS NOT SAYING THAT , BUT WHEN I CALL THE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE THEY CONFIRM THAT MY DD IS THE 13TH (THANK GOD)…… BUT YA’LL JUST MAY HAVE TO KEEP CALLING……

    • JamieAllen says:

      @MaggieBrown I filed on the 31st and I checked the WMR page a little while ago. It was saying by the 21st, now it’s saying by the 13th and to contact them if it’s not through by the 18th.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        THAT’S RIGHT…B/C AT 1ST IT SAID “BY THE 21ST” AND THEN IT SAID THE “17TH” AND NOW IT SAID MY DD IS 13TH…..AND WHEN I TRIED TO CHECK THE WMR SITE IT DIDNT HAVE NO INFO ON ME…..THATS’ WHY I HAD TO CALL TO MAKE SURE….

      • PaulineDeckerBoyer says:

        @JamieAllen Mine still says 21 Jamie and I filed 31 to when did yours change@MaggieBrown

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @PaulineDeckerBoyer @JamieAllen @MaggieBrown mines change 3x’s and my final was the 13th and actually the wmr site just updated that b/c i kept calling the hotline and customer service …. my final changed on tues. or wed. of this week…..

    Hey All, I also called an my Paper check will be sent on the 14th. Does anyone know how many days do u think it will take for me to receive it?

    I just called the hotline. I put all my info in and it said please hold for representative? anyone ever get that?

  272. j from ATL says:

    I just checked “where’s my refund” and it’s telling me my money will be deposited onFeb 13th. It also says if I haven’t received the money by the 18th check with my bank. I filed my taxes on the 5th of February so hopefully everyone who’s waiting will have theres soon.

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @j from ATL so that mean you will not recieved it until feb 15 which is a thursday

    • PaulineDeckerBoyer says:

      @j from ATL Good luck I file mine on the 31 and it’s telling me the 21 and still has not changed

  273. Duvalgirl74 says:

    I really don’t understand what the IRS doing!! How is ppl getting their $$$ b4 me who filed after me! Geesh please let my bread b n my account by Monday!!

  274. Just got off the phone with bank the money is there but I have to wait 1-2 business days for the check to clear ugh….

  275. so are they depositing on certain days or just on wednesday cause if its wednesday then the 13th is not a deposit day

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @bitties they will deposit on a thursday which is the 16..

    • ElizabethRichards says:

      @bitties im wrong if it is on the 13 it will be there. b/c mines is the 13. i on the phone as i type..she said no matter what day it fall on it will be there

  276. I finally got news on mines! I filed Jan 18th it was mailed out on the 7th when checking via the IRS2go app it gave me a number and ext to contact because the site had no info… so now I’m waiting on the post man!

  277. ElizabethRichards says:

    how many ppl did efil on the irs.gov/ turbotax?

  278. Question: My situation is a little more dramatic than normal this year…my ex fiance and I have a child. He has to pay child support, therefore he is not legally allowed to claim our son and I always claim him. I did my taxes with tax preparer on 7FEB12 to efile – got a call on 8FEB12 saying that the IRS rejected my taxes because my dependents ssn had already been used. His effin father claimed him!! So now I have to submit the court papers showing he pays child support to me, the custodial parent and paper file/mail in my taxes!! Does anyone know how long I can expect to wait to get my refund now because of this? I am requesting the money to be direct deposited still.

    (Stupid on his part, the IRS says he has to wait till he gets the money, fill out a form and then send it in and the money he received by claiming our son … well he also owes back child support so before he even gets his taxes, the child support enforcement office will intervene, take what he owes me, send to me, then give him what’s left. (He only owes like $900.) Very stupid because I’m mailing my tax documents in next couple days so my paperwork will show up to IRS before his amendment will. So the IRS is going to think he’s just claiming him and thinks he can and I guess he could get in trouble since the amendment won’t be there. I don’t know … But – does anyone know how long it will take before I receive the money from child support enforcement out of his taxes? I’m not sure when he filed, but it was sometime before 7FEB12. SO FRUSTRATING!! IM SO ANGRY THAT HIS STUPIDITY IS NOW DELAYING MY TAXES!! GRRRR)

  279. SSGPRATTSWIFEY says:

    I filed on the 2nd with H&R and got the emerald card I still have no funds… On the IRS site they were telling me no later than the 21st H&R says no later than 7 to 15 days after filling. I see that some filed after me and will be getting their $$ on Monday. I hate waiting and just want to know what the heck is up/

  280. Kellisa mclemore says:

    this happened to me last year, what happens is if they see your taxes before sending off his money they will issue an investigation…my ex is in the army so he got his sent his taxes in earlier than me…he claimed our child and so did i and there was no delay in receiving my money…he got the amount he was issued to when filing for our child and I got the amount I was issued…later in the year he got letters saying he owed irs the money that covered the child that he filed for his taxes…

      Is there anyway to prevent this from happening again? Other than trying to file before the ex has a chance?

      Also, my accountant is going to paper file, send in a form and proof of the child support order to me in to the IRS. I’ve heard that when they receive this kind of stuff, they will send audit paperwork to me and the other person and request supporting documentation of the child’s residency to actually determine who is the custodial parent…which can postpone the process and take longer to receive our refund. Did you have to go through this?

  282. I filed today. When will I get my refund? I did efile

  283. blackjack says:

    @Annoyed there gonna have ur x in the system,so any child he claims from here on out there gonna ??? It,and the money he owe there gonna take it but he won’t be able to file for Aleast 2 years or more

  284. I filed my taxes on the 19th of January and my tax guy said it would be mailed the 3rd of February when I didn’t receive it I called and it said the 7th, ofcourse nothing so now when I check it keeps saying processing no other information, no dates and it doesn’t tell me to call. Anyone know? Please help….

  285. @Smartinez hello there, I have the same problem as you but I filed on the 19th, it then said the 7th when I called when I didn’t get it I called back and it says processing… Just wondering have you got your refund, or have you heard anything new?

  286. Duvalgirl74 says:

    Now the WMR website has the nerve to update their site, I wish they could have everyone $$$$ on time! Lol

  287. Filed on the 31st. Just went to WMR and it says it will be dd on the 13th. I hope it doesn’t change up again.

  288. Sabrina Johnson says:

    wmr says 2/21 but SBBT says 2/15 so which do you think is the right date. i efiled thru turbotax and was accepted 2/2

    • SSGPRATTSWIFEY says:

      @Sabrina Johnson I am in the same boat, I filed and was excepted on the 2nd H&R says the 15th or 7-10 days after the IRS accepted it.

    • @Sabrina Johnson what is sbbt

      • Sabrina Johnson says:

        @marie24 @Sabrina that is the bank turbo tax uses for direct deposit. their # is 800-717-7228.

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @Sabrina Johnson DID IT SAY BY THE 21ST OR YOUR EXPECTED REFUND DATE IS FEB. 21ST

      • Sabrina Johnson says:

        it says by the 21 on WMR

      • SSGPRATTSWIFEY says:

        @MaggieBrown @Sabrina Johnson mine say I SHOULD have it by the 21st

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @Sabrina Johnson i dont think thats the right dd b/c it should say this “Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 13, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 18, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until February 18, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.” if u filed on the 31st of jan…..

        • @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @MaggieBrown @Sabrina Johnson This means that it is still processing…Mine is still the same too…if it doesnt change today then it will be next week that they start DD ppl refunds. I kind of got the situation now. My mom has filed hers and got hers back but we file with a private tax preparer in our hometown. She has already gttn hers back but it took her two weeks before she got it. My sister filed on the 3rd and her DD is set on the 15th. So next week everyone should be starting to get theirs. Keep in mind that the IRS does not process over the weekend so we will not get any more results from the hotline or WMR until the beginning of next week. Hope this helps you guys.

        • SSGPRATTSWIFEY says:

          @MrsCook @MaggieBrown @Sabrina Johnson It does help, now I wont drive my self crazy looking at it all weekend. :)

        • Sabrina Johnson says:

          @MrsCook @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @MaggieBrown is there specific dates they direct deposit or is it daily?

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @MrsCook @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @Sabrina Johnson WELL WHEN I SPOKE TO THE IRS AND H&R BLOCK ABOUT MY DD DAY THEY TOLD ME IT WILL BE SUNDAY ROLLING IN TO MONDAY @ 12AM… AND I HOPE AND PRAY THAT IT HAPPEN LIKE THAT CAUSE I TOOK OFF FOR THAT….

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @MrsCook @Sabrina Johnson IKR

        • @Sabrina Johnson @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @MaggieBrown It’s daily they have so many going in there are ppl getting them daily..The WMR DD is just an estimate of when it will get to you it could be any day before then.

        • @MaggieBrown @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @Sabrina Johnson Maggie it may deposit Monday a.m. or Sunday night. But there is not anyone there on the Weekends. They are a Gov’t Federal business and all of them are closed on Sat. and Sun. even banks.

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @MrsCook @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @Sabrina Johnson SO LET ME ASK U THIS…. SO JUST BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT U DD IS SUCH AND SUCH THAT MEAN THAT U CAN GET IT EARLIER THEN THAT ARE ACTUALLY ON THAT DAY THAT THEY SAID????

        • @MaggieBrown @SSGPRATTSWIFEY @Sabrina Johnson Yes, they give you the DD date and that is when your money can be DD up to this date… it can come anytime before then. That is why they say if it does not come after that date to call them. This may be the exact date or a day or two in before the date actually states.

  289. SSGPRATTSWIFEY says:

    Mine has never changed it has stayed steady on the 21st. I got my text that the IRS excepted it on the same day I filled which was the 2nd of FEB. I don’t understand how ppl. that filed after me are getting there’s before me! When they filed the same way and status as I did.

  290. Duvalgirl74 says:

    Another day of these BS games that the IRS is playing with ppl!

  291. kellisamclemore says:

    k so i filed on the 24th and i was supposed to get it on the 7th but still nothing and the wmr still doesnt have a date for me……..

  292. If you are receiving a message on the WMR that states: Your refund has been received and it is still processing but you should receive you refund by Feb. 21st. This means that it is still processing…Mine is still the same too…if it doesnt change today then it will be next week that they start DD ppl refunds. I kind of got the situation now. My mom has filed hers and got hers back but we file with a private tax preparer in our hometown. She has already gttn hers back but it took her two weeks before she got it. My sister filed on the 3rd and her DD is set on the 15th. So next week everyone should be starting to get theirs. Keep in mind that the IRS does not process over the weekend so we will not get any more results from the hotline or WMR until the beginning of next week. Hope this helps you guys.

    • eastcoastjr says:

      @MrsCook It is crazy how they work. I did my friends taxes and mine on the same day back to back on the 29th. He got his on the 8th and i am still waiting. I really do not understand how the irs works.

    • @MrsCook Mrs cook wmr will still update any changes over the weekend.mine was updated on a sun morning

      • @Every year That may be so but the IRS will not release anything on the Weekend because they are closed. Federal Gov’t is alaways closed on Sat. and Sun. including banks. The website may change over the weekend but they are the ones that process it and release it. There are individuals that work there that handle your returns. They get off just like any other person does that works for the gov’t. They do not open until 7am and close at 7pm and they close 3 hours early to continue processing the returns and this only happens Mon-Fri.

  293. eastcoastjr says:

    WMR has not showed anything the whole time, Today this is what it said. Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 14, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 19, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until February 19, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then I filled on the 29th

    • MaggieBrown says:

      @eastcoastjr wow…at least u get it next week

    • @eastcoastjr Remember this date is a guesstimate and it can be anytime before this date that you get the refund . So keep check with tax preparer or prepaid card if you DD that way. IT will be there soon and I hope we all see a change starting next week. Good Luck!

    • @eastcoastjr I believe that’s correct. If it stays like that you will get it then. Mine kept saying the 8th and I received it the night before.

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @chris35ty @eastcoastjr U GOT THE TEXT R THE REFUND THE NIGHT B 4 (WHICH IS THE 7TH)…

        SO SINCE MINE SAID THE 13TH IS IT A POSSIBILITY THAT I CAN GET IT ON SUNDAY THEN

        • @MaggieBrown @eastcoastjr Yes indeed Maggie. If ya got a Walmart down there go shopping at ten pm I did lol

        • @MaggieBrown mine was dd by 9:30

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty U READ MY MIND….LOL

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty @eastcoastjr the night b4 ur dd????

        • @MaggieBrown @eastcoastjr My dd was supposed to be February 8th. At 9:30 pm my phone gave me a txt saying it was on my emerald card the night before on the 7th.

        • @MaggieBrown Oh and Maggie, there’s one thing I don’t like about the emerald card, if you want money more than you’re allowed at your bank or whatever there’s a huge fee. We went to a bank to get some money to pay bills that we couldn’t use the card on and they charged us $25 bucks!

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @chris35ty @eastcoastjr BUT WAS’T U SUPPOSE TO GET IT ON THE 7TH ANYWAY

        • @MaggieBrown When I filed they had said that it was processing blah blah blah and something about the 7th but then it was changed saying it should be deposited on February 8th.

  294. I efiled on the third of february and still no info on the wmr I called the irs they told me it’s processing…. My dd date on the chart is the fifteenth I have a feeling that I’m gonna be waiting much longer then that… But I pray it’s no later then the fifteenth

    • haZel_EyeZ25 says:

      @marie24 mine said the 16th hopefully they do what they say or i bee madd!!!!

    • @marie24 ….I filed on Feb.1…according to the chart I should have had mine on the 9th….on the wmr it says expect it on the 21st!!! This is ridiculous!!!

  295. if the irs isnt workin on the weekends how will we get our deposit Monday? Hmmm……

  296. MaggieBrown says:

    COME ON MONDAY….

  297. Very excited I received my refund today after waiting damn near 4 weeks… I hope everyone who is still waiting receive theirs very soon May God bless u all…..

  298. Tax returns are only processed on business days (Monday through Friday). However, tax returns can be submitted any day of the week when filed electronically. Tax returns submitted on weekends are processed in the order received on the next business day.

  299. Their have been people receiving their taxes on saturdays and sundays this year. Their saying that with the new software funds can be dropped any day now

  300. Mine is now saying they have no info on me. This is highly frustrating. I just checked yesterday and it said it would be dd on feb 13th.

  301. I no alot of people who got theirs back in less then7 days but they weren’t claimimg any children or education credit, it seems like people that r claiming theses items are waiting so much longer this year… This really really sucks

  302. Update: We are aware that some taxpayers who have filed electronically and received an acknowledgement from the IRS are concerned when they visit “Where’s My Refund” and are told that we have no information regarding their return. This is a temporary situation, and we expect to resolve the matter in a few days. At that time, taxpayers will be able to get an expected refund date when they visit “Where’s My Refund.”

    If a taxpayer received an acknowledgment message that their e-filed tax return has been received, they can be assured that the IRS has the tax return even though “Where’s My Refund” does not reflect that. Taxpayers should not call the IRS unless specifically directed by “Where’s My Refund,” as there is no new information to give them.

    We expect the vast majority of tax refunds to continue to be issued within the historical range of 10 to 21 days. The IRS is taking steps to update information so that Where’s My Refund has current information. The IRS apologizes for any inconvenience and will provide updated information as soon as possible.

    • @MrsCook Well that explains it. I believe everyone has a right to call them and get accurate information as this is all they can go on information. It’s their money anyway. UGH!

  303. Why did my refund date on “Where’s My Refund”change?

    Refund dates change in “Where’s My Refund” as a tax return moves through IRS processing. A date change is not a sign of a problem for a person’s tax return. No action is needed by the taxpayer, unless “Where’s My Refund” specifically indicates that an action is needed.

    The estimated refund date initially provided via “Where’s My Refund” is just that, an estimate based on a best-case scenario in which the tax return was filed accurately and there are no corrections or reviews required. However, there are many factors that could affect the processing of a taxpayer’s return that may also change the estimated date the refund will be issued. These could include:

    The IRS balances customer service and tax compliance by reviewing tax returns to prevent fraudulent and erroneous refunds. These critical reviews could add time to refund processing, even for some legitimate returns.The IRS may need time to fix a simple error, like a math error.Refund timeframes can also be affected by such factors as bankruptcy, an open audit or a balance due on a related account such as a different tax year.

    If a tax return is affected by one of these factors or by an IRS processing system delay, “Where’s My Refund” will generally provide updated information as that return is processed and/or an updated estimate as the actual refund date becomes more clear.

  304. has anyone gotten aprroved for feb 5 ?

        • SSGPRATTSWIFEY says:

          @MaggieBrown @bitties I am going to do a happy dance too but my hubby wont be here to see it :( but he will be home soon enough :) Congrats ladies. I called H&R they said they see it pending so I just need them to release the money but the girl told me it could take anywhere from 3-5 depending on when the IRS deposited it. I hate waiting. hopefully it will be there tomorrow I don’t care what time.

        • @MaggieBrown @bitties @SSGPRATTSWIFEY glad you ladies finally got it!!

          @bitties @MaggieBrown Today is my day according to the IRS and nothing on my emerald card as of right now. I guess since H&R said by the 15th that is what I should expect.

    • @MaggieBrown

      • MaggieBrown says:

        @bitties WHAT DO U THINK THAT MEAN CAUSE I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH H&R BLOCK AND AS USUALLY SHE TOLD ME TO CALL THE IRS TO CONFIRM A DUE DATE AND I TOLD HER THAT MY DD WAS TOMORROW AND STILL IT WAS LIKE SHE COULD TELL ME NOTHING BUT TO CALL THEM AND B4 SHE TOLD ME TO CALL SHE ASK ME FOR ALL MY INFO TO GET TO MY ACCOUNT AND THEN AT THE END SHE TOLD ME TO CALL U JUST WASTED MY TIME FOR SOMETHING THAT I KNEW I JUST THOUGHT MAYBE THEY KNEW SOMETHING THAT I DIDNT KNOW….

        • @MaggieBrown

        • @MaggieBrown

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties THATS WHAT I WAS TRYING TO REMEMBER I THINK THAT HAPPENED TO CHRIS35…I WAS TRYING TO GO BACK A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO TO SEE WHO THAT HAPPENED TO R THINK THAT SOMEBODY WAS TALKING ABOUT THAT….

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties I JUST CHECKED MY CARD AND NOTHING….DID U CHECK UR’S

        • @MaggieBrown

          yes i checked mine and it was chris35 im going to see if i can find it too

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties OK

        • @MaggieBrown @bitties The WMR site says if your status changes this means that your refund is moving in the computer system as it processes.On the WMR site go down to the bottom of the page and click on the new updates for 2012 it will answer most of the questions you have about your refund and how it is being processed.

        • @bitties @MaggieBrown i read some where that if you get that message your return will be on the day they said or even the same day. but i’m not too sure. mine says the same thing

        • @MaggieBrown

          i couldnt find it but im pretty for sure it was her that it happened to and how could the both of us have our taxes messed up very unlikely Maggie i think this will be fine

        • @MaggieBrown

          did u find it

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties no

        • @MaggieBrown

          im almost 95% sure that i remember thats what happened to her

        • MaggieBrown says:

          @bitties WELL I HOPE IT DO COME TODAY SINCE EVERYBODY SAY WHEN U GET THAT MSG THAT U GET IT THE SAME DAY…..NOW FOR REAL I WILL BE DOING MY DANCE, LOL….

        • @MaggieBrown

          im a big girl and i might have to drop it low lol

        • @bitties @MaggieBrown I found it and she siad this if this is the right one:

          @eastcoastjr I believe that’s correct. If it stays like that you will get it then. Mine kept saying the 8th and I received it the night before.
