    Wow. I Filed on Feb 3 also. I have been checking wheres my refund and nothing until today which stated I should be expecting it by March 6. I am like are you kidding me. What happened to 10 to 21 days…I hope this is not the case. especially with a direct deposit.

    I filed on Feb 4th and until today I also had no estimate date for refund. My date today now says March 6th too :( I was reading on another site as well and it seems like the majority of people that filed the first week of February are getting the extra long processing dates. Most of my friends that filed other weeks got their refund in less than 10 days. I certainly know that if I paid them later than an agreed upon date I would have to pay a penalty.

    I filed my taxes efile with Hand R block and used the RAC emerald card which cost me 160$ more then usual but it is supposed to be a quicker return. Anyways I filed on March 5th and my refund date was supposed to be on March 13th, now it is already 2 days late so I decided to go on where is my refund to see what was going on, and sure enough it had said my refund date had been changed but the date it was changed to was beyond ridiculous, I am now supposed to wait till April 24th before I will see any of my money. That is almost 2 months of waiting, I cannot believe that H and R block can get away with taking 160$ of my money for a supposed quick return that will take two months. I now know that those damn quick return promises are just a scam but these tax offices. I WILL NEVER FILE WITH H AND R BLOCK EVER AGAIN!!! Also I feel if it is taking the IRS this long to process returns then they should think about hiring more people during tax season so this crap doesn’t happen every year. I got completely screwed this year with my taxes!!!

    I FILED MY TAXES ON FEB 13TH AND STILL HAVE NO REFUND. MY PREPARER TOLD ME THAT THE FORM YOU FILE FOR COLLEGE CREDITS FOR YOUR CHILDREN WAS BEING HELD DUE TO THAT REASON AND THEY WERE NOT EVEN ACCEPTING REFUNDS USING THIS FORM. THEY HAD TO HOLD ON TO CLIAMS BEFORE THEY COULD EVEN TRANSMIT THEM, BUT THEY RECEIVED AN ANNCOUNCEMENT THAT THEY WERE ACCEPTING THEM ON FEB 13TH AND I SHOULD ECPECT MY REFUND WITHIN 21 DAYS. I CHECK THE WEBSITE: WHERE’S MY REFUND AND IT ONLY SAYS PROCESSING AND NO DATE TO EXPECT REFUND. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THIS.
