Why does it say my return is still processing and my expected refund date is the 14th and it is now the 15th?

Asked by: livingeditor 1664 views YA Discussion

When I put in my husbans SS number it says this We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Your expected refund date has been changed due to processing delays. You should receive your refund by February 14, 2012. Please wait until that date to contact us again because we cannot take any action until then. Thank you for your patience.

If I put in my SS and info it says that my expected date is the 21st

My question is why is it saying the 14th on his and the 21st on mine?? we filed married and joint. Why does it say the 14th and today is the 15th and it still says 15th.. I cant find a number to save my life to get ahold of a real person from the irs.. all i can find is numbers for automated voices… What does processing delays mean? Does that mean they found an error in my return or does it mean they are just behind??

How others found here:

  • why does my refund still say processing
  • what does it mean when the irs says processing delays
  • my refund is processing what does that mean

    They are behind in general. All the dates coming off of WMR are wrong.

    i think you should just save yourself some time and annoyance, just wait till at least after the weekend to call. Unless you are living under a rock you would have heard that the systems are completely screwed up this year and they wont really be able to tell you anything except they are processing and there are delays. They cannot and are not giving any firm dates this year because everything is a mess. sit back and relax! im trying to:)
