Tax refund information

Its been 21 days and still no tax refund.?

Question: Its been 21 days and still no tax refund.?

(Posted by: on 2013-02-19 10:06:38)

I filed my taxes on 1/ 26/ 13 and got accepted on 1/ 30/ 13. Since 2/ 17/ 13 the WMR website took away the bar and now says "return still being processed and a date will be provided when available ". I have called and they couldn't give me a date but said if I was getting flagged I would have received a letter by now. Has anyone's refund taken longer than the expected 21 days. I'm getting very aggravated. 21 days will be tomorrow 2/ 20/ 13 and my tax preparer said there is no sign of IRS even had released the check so I know I definitely won't get it tomorrow. At least I'm not the only one. Yes, I know the the 21 days isn't up until tomorrow but they usually release it two days before the due date because thats how long it takes for a bank to clear the check. But I guess we will all just have to play the waiting game since we are on their time. smh Yesterday 2/ 19/ 2013 I received a letter from the IRS stating "we're holding your refund until we finish reviewing your tax return. You do not need to take any action at this time " like I said my dependents are mine & & I didn't do any falsely stuff. They are basically just low on money and don't want to give it all out, but if they wait on a few then they will be making money in the meantime. Smh it's so ridiculous. And there's nothing I can do but wait because I'm on their time. I hate it.

It's seriously ridiculous this year. It's really upsetting how long everything is taking but don't get upset or think something is wrong, you aren't the only one in this position

I am in the same situation as you. I called this morning and got a very helpful and pleasant man that said if anything was wrong an error code would come up on the wmr and a phone number would be provided. so I will sit tight until after my 21 days which would be Wednesday. btw when I check the wmr it says processing a dd date will be provided when available

I file on the 30th of jan and up until today it says still being processed and you should recieve your refund in 21 days. Now says a refund date will be provided when available. I tried calling multiple numbers but they are saying call back wed or thurs. Im guessing because so many people are calling for problems. Dont know what is going on this year I have never had a problem before and everything is the same as prior years.

I have many difficulties with my refund.I was told my return is in the ERS Dept past couple weeks.I too filed on the 30th. Today my status changed to refund date will be provided when available . I called and got an extremely kind woman. This after many phone calls over weeks with people who were rude and could not give me any information but my refund was in Error Resolution System and I should receive a letter with more information they needed. Well, I never received a letter. When I spoke to the informative woman today she said the ERS had released it and now processing. She informed me I must have sent in the info the IRS needed. But, I never sent them anything nor received a letter form them! I think they are truly trying to hold on to our money. She said I should be getting in next 30 days. I told her I am going through financial hardship. She said that on their end it shows up at least a week in advance as to date of DD. She said I would have to wait at least a week to get it according to her screen. I hope she is wrong. Is this true if there is no DD listed when you speak to a representative , you will have at least a week to wait? And, it has been 21 days , I have received no letter it would be late. so, confused!

Samething with me filed on 1/ 31 was saying funds will be available with in 21 days with a wmr bar now today it's saying no bar but your refund is still processing refund date will be provided when available. I don't get it why did it change? It went from 21 days to funds will be provided when available what does this mean? **************UPDATE*************** We called the Irs yesterday they said that our returns just got finished processing. My dd date is Feb. 27th and i just checked my wmr status like 20 minutes ago and its back the bar is at 2 orange bars. It stressed me out that i couldn't find a update for a while i was thinking I was getting audited or something. I hope this helps i just wanted to update and let you guys know it should be ok your refunds should come soon good luck all happy spending!!!

I am going through the same thing; still no money! The deadline is today and I've been on hold wit the IRS for at least 45 minutes now. I don't know whats more frustrating, the automated system, or getting a customer representative who speaks with a heavy accent and you cant understand them. Then the representative uses an automated system. What the heck is this mess!!!!! Might as well make an automated system with a middle eastern accent.


Posted by: Megan on 2013-02-20, 05:05:30

Same thing here. Accepted 1/ 30 and states its still processing. Tried to call and the woman I talked to was rude told me my 21 days was up Friday. Either I can't count or she is stupid


Posted by: Carla on 2013-02-20, 05:20:33

Same here. Been processing since it was accepted 1/ 31. I filed mid January just to have it done. I also freaked because there was a day that there was no information on wmr available at all. When it was available again it did the same thing as everyone else. No status bar anymore just a date will be provided when available. I'm getting really nervous about it!


Posted by: Andrea Hofmeyer on 2013-02-20, 05:20:48

Hello I am having the same issue . I filed 2/ 4 and the entire time the wmr site has said processing. Today is just says a date will be given when available . I called the IRS an was told there is an error but they aren't sure what it is , and if I receive a letter than they will need additional info - if no letter they will resolve it on their end . My 21 days is mon 2/ 25 I was told to call back then. I have always filed with the same accountant - same dependents every year - same address nothing has changed . I'm not even sure what the error could be and obviously they can't help . I hope something comes soon !


Posted by: Elizabeth on 2013-02-20, 05:24:33

I'm having the same problem as everybody filed mine in the 24th accepted when they opened and it says the same thing as everybody's, this is the first time I need this money and of course this freaking year is the year we don't get it in time, every year we file early and get the money on feb. 1-2 . Hopefully we all get ours tomorrow since it will be 21 days exactly

My 21 days are up today, I just tried calling. The call volume is so high that they couldnt even connect me. I haven't got anything in the mail yet from the IRS. This year is really crazy. Try calling the 800 829 1040 number, press 1 for english and when it gives you the prompts, don't press anything and it will automatically take you to a cust servvice person. I couldnt get through because it was "high volume calling "

Same here. Return accepted on 1/ 30/ 13 and today is the 21st day and nothing, I haven't received any letter yet. I tried calling but can't get past the automated WMR.. What other # can I call ??


Posted by: Adrian on 2013-02-20, 06:56:12

I just called the irs hotline number and they said the office is closed. Uhhhh what?


Posted by: Sherry on 2013-02-20, 07:16:49

Today makes day 23 for me, I called the IRS and they said that they didn't start processing my return until the 14th of Feb, even though they accepted them on the 30th. So I don't know if any of you are claiming education credits, but they said that anyone claiming them will have a delay since they didn't even start looking at them until the 14th.


Posted by: Not an astronaut on 2013-02-20, 07:30:53

I'm in this boat too... I want answers!! I have a sneaking suspicion they are broke somehow. Even though we as taxpayers pay their light bills. Waiting impatiently.
