How long does it take to get your tax refund with injured spouse form?

Asked by: dtba 2867 views YA Discussion

I E-Filed my taxes on March 3rd with direct deposit and with the injured spouse form since my husband’s return gets garnished for child support. On the “Where’s my refund?” website it say I would have my return by March 27th. That date came along and the status changed to “You’re return has been received and is being processed”. It is now the end of April and I still haven’t gotten my refund and can not get any information about it. Has anyone had this same situation, and can tell me how long it takes to receive the refund?

    The standard turn-around time for a return like that is 11 weeks.

    Turnaround time when you attach the 8379 to your return is 11 to 14 weeks total processing time. When filing Form 8379, the WMR page information is largely meaningless.

    11-14 weeks from the date IRS received the Form 8379/
    For Status of Form 8379 you must now call 1-800-829-1040. The WMR is no longer updated.

    good luck

    The IRS is understaffed and overworked beyond belief so just be very, very patient. To exacerbate the situation they have non-interfacing computer systems being used with problem ridden software and limited tech support to work on the computer-software problems; not to mention the big push for people who know nothing about accounting, taxes or computers who file their own taxes on-line and ensuing problems that have cropped up in biblical proportions. Just be glad you are not an identity theft victim as it takes over seven months to get somebody at IRS assigned to address that problem.
