Has anyone else had their 2012 return pulled for review?
Asked by: epondel
I filed on 1/17 and was accepted on 1/19 with a DD date of 1/25. I didn’t receive my DD on time so I called and was told that my return got caught up in a system glitch and that it was pulled for review. I checked back on the WMR and seen that the date had changed to 2/22. Then on 2/1 I received a letter from the IRS saying that it was being reviewed for EIC and a tuition credit. Then my DD date changed to 2/21, 2/14, and now is at 2/7. So I called again this am and was told that because my return is being reviewed the IRS has up to 45 days to process my refund. And to make matters worse they are not going 45 days from the day I was accepted they are going 45 days from 2/1 when I received the letter. Just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat?
