Why is my tax refund still processing?

Asked by: ralvarez 19683 views YA Discussion

So I have the standard ez1040 with only 1 kid credit and thats it. I filed my taxes 6 weeks ago and I checked the irs.gov website “where’s your refund” and it says that it is still processing. Why is it taking so long?
idk really, I had liberty tax service do it.

How others found here:

  • my tax return says still processing
  • why is my 2014 refund still processing
  • why is my taxes still processing

    You do not claim any dependents when you are using the 1040EZ FIT return during any tax filing season at all.
    Where’s My Refund? Will not give you a refund date right away. We must first receive your tax return and then we have to process it and approve your refund. Where’s My Refund? will give you a personalized date once your refund is approved.
    ONLY check the WMR website ONCE each day after the AM updates for this purpose and time in your life.
    What is happening when Where’s My Refund? Shows the status of my refund is: Return Received?
    This means the IRS has your tax return and is processing it. Your personalized refund date will be available as soon as the IRS finishes processing your return and confirms that your refund has been approved. Most refunds are issued in less than 21 days.


    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 03/04/2013

    You can’t claim dependents on Form 1040-EZ.

    I am on the same boat. I have one kid and going to school and its still processing since 1/30/2013. I heard rumors that it is picked to go under review by random. I just wish what ever the case might be that the IRS will just put a note on their site when we check it.

    The 1040EZ doesn’t give you the option to claim dependents. Line 5 says your deductions will change if SOMEONE ELSE can claim you (or your spouse) as a dependent.

    Keep in mind that your spouse ISN’T your dependent, they’re your spouse.

    Filed 2-19, accepted 2-20… received the automated call from Healthcare.gov stating that I had received the wrong form and another was being mailed out.
    I called healthcare rep and was told that my healthcare form was off by $1 so no need to amend my taxes.

    What is interesting is that March 12-14 was my estimated Refund date.
    Today is March 23rd, 2015.. I finally call the Tax Advocate this morning (And I finally received the new form 3 days ago)

    she asked for the date on the new form mailed to me. After I had mentioned March 10th. .I was told that my Taxes were Not accepted Feb 20th Per Turbo Tax.. My taxes were accepted MARCH 4th ,2015 ..

    Since I was part of the Healthcare.gov issue, I have to wait 40 days after acceptance because these refunds were suspended also although my tax difference was only $1 .. there were many who’s taxes from healthcare.gov that were HUGE ..

    Now I must wait until 40 days after March 4th instead of my 21 day wait which was march 12th..
    well at least I know what I haven’t received anything. Oddly, there were no tax transcripts or any bars left, just the We’re Still Processing your refund message
    hope this helps someone

    I’m thoroughly disappointed in the IRS. They do not communicate properly. My return was accepted Feb. 17 and website says it is still processing. When I try to call, I either get a message that I need to call back because of heavy call volumes or on only 2 occasions after holding for 1 hour each time, someone finally answered. They were of NO help. All they could say was it was still being processed. They were in Mass. and said my return was in Cincinnati. When I asked if I could call Cincinnati, they said the dept. processing returns would not talk to anyone, I would just have to wait. THIS IS NOT FAIR. I do the right thing and file my taxes, but the IRS is negligent and inefficient in doing their job. I have NOT received a letter, call, or anything to indicate they need any info from me or to tell me anything. When I asked the one person I talked with, if she could give the Error Dept. my phone number and a message to call, she said she would, but they would not call to give me status report. She said they would only call if they needed info.
    when I guestioned her if this was about healthcare.gov verification, she claimed she did not know, but I read article that thousands of refunds are being delayed because IRS is waiting for verification from State Health Agencies about the healthcare.gov subsidies. Is anyone else having same problems?
