Irs refund still processing!!! Help!!!?

Asked by: proffr 2596 views YA Discussion

I was one of the refunds that didn’t start processing until the 14th because of education credits… My “wheres my refund” status changed Friday from showing the orange bar to just saying “your refund is still processing, a direct deposit date will be given when availiable”. Anyone else having this problem or know anything about this? It will be a week tomorrow that they began “processing” my return. I filed I and it was accepted on the 22nd of January… Irritated!

  • irs still processing refund

    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.

    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 am also one of the educational credit filers. I think we have to wait 21 past the 14th since that is when they actually started on them. I feel your irritation! Good Luck Hon!

    I am so tired of this! My taxes was accepted on 2/14/13.. It is now 3/21/13 and we are still processing! I think a class action suit is in order along with a few demonstrations to IRS in the District! I am appalled at the lack of information given by the so-called employees at 18008291040 number… You are on hold for over 20 minutes to be told, they don’t know! My question is, if they don’t have an answer, who does? I can’t complete my FAFSA because I can’t order my transcripts! This is a travesty and over 60 days of where’s my refund! I have had it! Where is the Wall Street Demonstrators when you need them?
