What is reference code 9001 for Where’s My Refund?

Asked by: kcomment 754 views YA Discussion

Any insight would be great here. I filed my taxes (efile) on January 26, but they weren’t accepted until February 14 (3 days ago) due to claiming Education Credit which couldn’t be processed until then.

For 2 days it showed “Received” but then intermittently showed “You may have entered information incorrectly – Please re enter”. Now today it says “We can not provide any information about your refund. Please allow 4 weeks after you mail your return to check the status of refund. If you call, use reference code 9001 with the representative”. What is this ? I e filed, I did not mail my return so I’m confused and reference 9001 seems to be very ambiguous according to Google and many others who have gotten it.

Any insight would be very appreciated! :-)

How others found here:

    I haven’t had that happen, however, it states in your paraphrase to call them and use the reference code 9001. I would do just that. The website has been very inconsistent with peoples tax returns this year but I would definitely call to make sure there isn’t an issue.

    I filed on January 30 and was accepted on February 14th as well and my WMR just says processing.

    Using your above enclosed information it sure does sound like your efiled return was REJECTED AND NEVER ACCEPTED by the IRS as you did fill it out and filed it to them and you do say that they did accept it to start processing it at that time RIGHT.
    Call the enclosed number Monday AM as soon as they do open for business for this purpose.
    Hope you find the above enclosed information useful. 02/17/2013
