I have not received a letter yet but…
I got the new screen on the WMR on 2/19 and got ahold of someone in accounts. They said the reason I am getting it is because my return is been delayed to check accuracy. Whatever that means and could take an additional 45-60 days to finish the process and my refund will be held until they are done. He didn’t say they needed more info and if they did I would get a second letter requesting it. I file the same way every single year with the same deductions and credits every single year so no clue why they are stalling now. So I am assuming it is the IRS way of holding up our refunds even longer or a stall tactic because the 21 days is in 2 days and they do not have them done yet. This is absolutely rediculous.
I just figured I would share what info I got for the supposed reasoning behind the new screen because a lot of other people are getting the same screen now on the WMR website.

I filed 1/30, accepted and processing since 2/1. No letter in the mail for being under review, I think I’ve checked so much that I have just given up.

IRS Statement on “Where’s My Refund?” Tool Feb. 14, 2013
The IRS alerted taxpayers and the tax community it is experiencing high traffic on “Where’s My Refund?” as more tax returns come in. The heavy volume of refund inquiries means that the IRS anticipates both “Where’s My Refund?” on IRS.gov and the refund feature on the IRS2go phone app will have limited availability during busier periods.
Due to the large number of inquiries and to avoid service disruptions, the IRS strongly urges taxpayers to only check on their refunds once a day. IRS systems are only updated once a day, usually overnight, and the same information is available whether on the Internet, IRS2go smartphone app or on IRS toll-free lines. While “Where’s My Refund?” is updated nightly, your account will not change that frequently.
The IRS is seeing a good start to the filing season, and tax refunds are being issued timely. Nine out of 10 taxpayers typically receive refunds in less than 21 days when they use e-file with direct deposit.
The IRS expects to see the number of tax returns — and related refund inquiries — steadily increase around the President’s Day holiday week.
Here are some tips to help taxpayers with their refund questions:
*Have the right tax information ready before using any of the IRS refund tools. This includes Social Security number, filing status and refund amount.
*You don’t need to check “Where’s My Refund?” more than once a day as your information will not change.
*To avoid system delays, the best time to check on refunds is evening and weekends.
*There is no need to call the IRS about your refund; the telephone service has the same information that is available on “Where’s My Refund?”.

I filed the 28th, it was accepted the 30th. I called today and apparently, my return was sent to the ERS last week and was released back to processing Friday. The woman I spoke to, was very helpful and looked up my account and let me know what was going on. She said once it goes to the ERS you can expect your refund in up to 5 weeks… She told me to call back if I haven’t received it by March 29th.
She did say that there was a glitch in their system when it came to the EIC, something about the form not being highlighted on lines 21 and 23 ( Or something like that) so they were being kicked out to the ERS. She said it’s affecting some people who filed between Jan 30- Feb 5th. It sucks, and it’s extremely frustrating to be left waiting for so long, while seeing others who file after you get their returns already, but all you can do is call, and then proceed to wait it out. Best of luck!
