federal refund is late?

Asked by: emeka22uche 1883 views YA Discussion

My federal refund was accepted 10 days ago, and on the website, (“where’s my refund”), it says it should have been deposited on the 21st, but I have not received it yet. Someone it is because I might be getting an IOU. Anyone else get there’s late?

How others found here:

  • why is my 2014 tax refund late
  • late irs refunds 2014
  • Wheres My Refund 2012 Late

    The IRS is not doing IOUs.

    The IRS is reviewing questionable returns with a magnifying glass.
    The IRS is having to reprocess many returns.
    The IRS has to verify that you don’t owe on past years or for non-IRS debt.

    I filed and was accepted on the 2nd of February. It is now the 23rd of February and I’m STILL waiting. I can’t believe the irs this year. I know that they are backed up from implementing a new system to further detect fraud and fake returns, but why do we have to suffer for it? The Where’s my refund website tool just gives me a fake, generic message stating within 6 weeks. This is total b.s. Hopefully we will get it soon but don’t cross your fingers untill 6 weeks have passed.

    Yup same here, I filed on Feb. 8 and the first date I was given was Feb. 28, I checked again and got Feb. 21 and now the 21 has come and gone. I checked today and now I have this message: your refund will be direct deposited on February 27, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by March 3, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until March 3, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.

    WTF I’m so confused.

    Well I filed 2/16 accepted on 2/17 supposed to be dd on 2/28 now they changed it to 3/07 and advised I wait till 3/12 to contact them if I don’t have it I once owed the Irs 6000.00 and they were going to levy my wages (take all my income) I had to beg them to let me pay 500$ a month so I wouldn’t end up on the streets but now they owe me money and lo and behold I have to wait they should be penalized just like they penalize the good citizens of this country
