2012 Identity theft on tax return. When should i recieve my refund?

Asked by: lpliskin 1586 views YA Discussion

On february 3 I tried to file my tax return, come to find out someone had used my social and filed under me. I contacted IRS right away and did all the necessary steps in reporting this incident. I know that identity theft is HUGE with 2012 tax return, but with my situation they had told me they didnt send the check out to the other person and they recieved all my information by mail in the begining of march. When i look at the “Wheres my refund” option on the IRS website it says I should receive my refund by april 10. Can that be accurate? should it even take this long considering the fact that they didnt send my check out to anyone.

Any help or advice would be appreciated!

    Since there is no one single scammer, the IRS has to make sure you aren’t another one.

    YES of course and also the IRS and the FMS United States Treasury Department will be the ONLY one that will or should KNOW at what point in that the IRS might be ready to SEND OUT your anticipated REFUND amount out to your account holder that you chose to use for this purpose or as a paper check by mail for the 2011 tax year and it could be possible that IF it is SENT OUT after midnight April 10 into the early hours of April 11 if you used a personal bank account and then they might have the amount available for you when they open the doors that morning BUT any way the account holder will have control of the REFUND amount once that the FMS does SEND the REFUND amount OUT for this purpose.
    And then again any time from now until the next week after April 10 2012 you might have the REFUND amount available to you to use.
    PATIENCE and
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 04/04/2012

    and since 2012 has not yet expired, it is a 2011 tax return
    identity theft can take a long time, sometimes years, you will just have to wait for IRS to sort through the error

    the irs has completed my identity theft . they continue to tell me that i will recieve my refund at different dates and still ihave not recieved my refund. i have done all of the necessay requirements that i was requested to do by the irs to recieve my 2012 refund but i have still not recieved my payment. i have corresonded with them and continue to be told that my refund will be sent out on certain dates but i still have not recieved it. i have spoken to other indiviuals that are going through the same sitiuation. this seems odd to me that so many other taxpayers are going through the same thing. i’m now so tired of this. i need my refund
