ACCEPTED your 1040 FIT RETURN to start the processing of it at this time in your life.
BUT no refund YET at this time in your life RIGHT.
The actual IRS processing date for this purpose is supposed be January 30 2013 at this time they are suppose be doing what they call HUB testing of the new MEF that they did start with during the 2012 tax filing season for this purpose some transmitter such as Tax Wise software ERO transmitter was supposed to be limited to 18000 1040 FIT returns Wednesday January 23 2013 for this purpose during whatever hours the IRS had them scheduled to try to check the operation of the system out slowly to see how things would go to begin with at that time.
January 30 2013 is still supposed to be the IRS scheduled date to really start the PROCESSING and the issuing out of the anticipated REFUND checks when a taxpayer does NOT have any delay in the processing of that 1040 income tax within about a 21 day period is supposed be possible for the 2013 tax filing season.
The IRS will not process paper or electronic tax returns before the Jan. 30 opening date, so there is no advantage to filing on paper before then. Using e-file is the best way to file an accurate tax return, and using e-file with direct deposit is the fastest way to get a refund.
Many major software providers are accepting tax returns in advance of the Jan. 30 processing date. These software providers will hold onto the returns and then electronically submit them after the IRS systems open. If you use commercial software, check with your provider for specific instructions about when they will accept your return. Software companies and tax professionals send returns to the IRS, but the timing of the refunds is determined by IRS processing, which starts Jan. 30.
After the IRS starts processing returns, it expects to process refunds within the usual time frames. Last year, the IRS issued more than nine out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days, and it expects the same results in 2013. Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, some tax returns will require additional review and take longer. To help protect against refund fraud, the IRS has put in place stronger security filters this filing season.
After taxpayers file a return, they can track the status of the refund with the “Where’s My Refund?” tool available on the IRS.gov website. New this year, instead of an estimated date, Where’s My Refund? will give people an actual personalized refund date after the IRS processes the tax return and approves the refund.
“Where’s My Refund?” will be available for use after the IRS starts processing tax returns on Jan. 30. Here are some tips for using “Where’s My Refund?” after it’s available on Jan. 30:
Initial information will generally be available within 24 hours after the IRS receives the taxpayer’s e-filed return or four weeks after mailing a paper return.
The system updates every 24 hours, usually overnight. There’s no need to check more than once a day.
“Where’s My Refund?” provides the most accurate and complete information that the IRS has about the refund, so there is no need to call the IRS unless the web tool says to do so.
To use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool, taxpayers need to have a copy of their tax return for reference. Taxpayers will need their social security number, filing status and the exact dollar amount of the refund they are expecting.
