No Tax Refund After 21 days? Reasons Why and Tips on Contacting the IRS To Get an Update on Payment Delays – Updated for 2021Tax Filings

As the IRS notes, for nine out of ten tax payers it takes a maximum of 21 days to receive a tax refund (when eligible) after their tax return has been accepted. But this is still just an estimate based on past IRS refund schedules and not a guarantee. Further if it takes 21 days on average for 90% of tax payers, it also takes a lot longer than that for 10% or over 15 million tax filers to see their refund.

For the current tax season this delay has been exacerbated, with the IRS and Taxpayer Advocate Service already reporting that they are dealing with a significant backlog of tax returns (including some from the prior year) and many filers are reporting several weeks delays in getting their refund payments.

And trying to get through to someone in the IRS has proven even harder with recent reports from the Tax Payer Advocate service saying that only about 1 in 50 callers are actually getting through to the IRS (discussed more in this video).

Keep reading for more tips on getting through to an agent below and in the tax refund delays comments forum following this article.

Reasons Why Your Tax Return Processing and Refund Has Been Delayed

To understand why processing has been delayed you need to understand the refund process. It starts with the submission of your final tax return. After your tax return has been accepted by the IRS (return received) they will start processing it over several days until finalized and a tax refund, if eligible, is disbursed (refund approved). A refund payment date will then be available on the IRS Where is my Refund (WMR site or IRS2Go app) once sent out (refund sent). If there are issues with your refund you may see an extended delay in moving to the next processing status and an applicable IRS message/code will be displayed once available.

The IRS and tax experts have said that there could be dozens of reasons when it comes to delays in processing tax returns that can then affect the timing of your refund. Some are in your control, but others may be purely do IRS processing delays that you cannot do much about. But common causes for tax return processing and refund delays include:

  • Includes errors or is incomplete, which means the IRS cannot validate or match your data to their records. Especially for key items like your or your spouse’s SSN, dependent data or missing fields needed to process your return (e.g income)
  • Is affected by identity theft or fraud. You will see a message if this is the reason and receive a letter in the mail to confirm identity and next steps. You need to ensure you follow instructions and provide required information to confirm your identity with the IRS.
  • Incorrect bank account information. Given most refunds are sent electronically it’s very important to double (or triple) check that your account number and bank routing number are accurate. You don’t want a delay trying to recover a refund because it went to the wrong bank account. This has impacted thousands of people and even delayed payment of stimulus checks which relied on your latest tax return payment details.
  • Includes a claim filed for an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or an Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC). This delays returns early in the tax season due to (PATH) legislation which requires additional verification for these credits and does not allow returns with these credits to be processed for three to four weeks into the tax season.
  • Includes a Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation which could cause delays for up to 14 weeks due to additional processing and verification by the IRS.
  • Needs further reviews in general by the IRS. Most systems have automated checks looking for common red flags and are then flagged for more further (manual) processing. The could add weeks to your tax return processing and subsequent delays to your refund payments.
  • [Outside your control and a big issue this year] IRS delays due to focus on or processing of other higher priority items like 2020/2021 stimulus checks or unprocessed past year tax returns. Unfortunately you cannot do anything in this situation and will just have to wait for the IRS to catch-up on processing refunds. Given their staff shortages, antiquated systems and new credits they are paying out this year like the expanded monthly CTC and $10,200 unemployment tax break, the 2020-2021 tax year will likely be a long one with months of waiting for refund payments. The silver lining with delayed refunds is that the IRS will end up paying interest on your overdue refunds as long as filed by the tax season deadline (May 17th, for this season).

One thing to note is that by using electronic filing software like TurboTax to efile returns, you can eliminate a lot of the simple errors or incomplete information related issues that delay tax refund processing because tax software packages have automated checks before you submit the return to the IRS. This is why electronically filing your taxes is the recommended option by the IRS and tax advocates.

What To Do Next?

If it has been over 21 days since your return was being accepted by the IRS (or 6 weeks if you filed a paper return) and the tax refund status has not changed or WMR has no updated message for delays, you can call the IRS and speak with an agent concerning your tax refund. But to reiterate, don’t call before 21 days as the IRS will tell you to wait until the prescribed period. You can call the IRS on 1-800-829-1040 between 7 AM – 7 PM local time Monday-Friday.

Some people may also receive a formal IRS notice requesting specific information, which often contain a number to call that is different to the general one above. Firstly, don’t ignore these letters and ensure you use this one as chances of getting through to a live agent are higher. Also calling early or late in the day seems to increase the odds of getting through to someone.

Calling the IRS to Check on Your Refund – 4 Options to Try

Its not always easy to get through to a live agent at the IRS, but below are some options to try. Hopefully these help you get someone real to talk to about your refund. But just be warned you will need to try a few times, so have a drink or lots of patience handy!

Option 1 (seems to be working this year)

  1. Call IRS number 1-800-829-0582
  2. DO NOT selection Option #1 for English
  3. Wait until the automated voice finishes talking. Then enter extension 652
  4. You may have to wait a while due to high call volumes (and redial a few times), but you will get a live agent.

Option 2

  • Call the IRS on 1-800-829-1040
  • So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info) or Option 7 (economic impact payment/stimulus check). 
  • Choose option 2 for “personal income tax” instead.
  • Then press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.   
  • Then press 3 “for all other questions.”
  • Then press 2 “for all other questions.”  
  • When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don’t enter anything. 
  • After it asks twice, you will get another menu.
  • Then press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
  • It should then transfer you to an agent. Retry if you get the high call volume message.

Option 3: Call the IRS Refund Hotline – 1-800-829-1954 – and follow the prompts.

Option 4: Another route to get more information on your refund is to contact the National Taxpayer Advocate Service (see more on the TAS here), an independent unit within the IRS to add tax payers. But they will be limited to help until the IRS actually starts processing your return and has loaded your tax filing information into their systems.

Please leave a comment, in addition to the many below, if you have found a different and effective way to speak to a real IRS Tax agent. You can see some more suggestions in this video on IRS numbers and tips to get a live agent.

  1. They seem to have successfully plugged all holes in their phone systems were you were able to actually able to get through to speak to a live person!
    I have ‘only’ waited 2 1/2 months, so I guess I have 2 more months to go!
    STOP HANDING OUT MONEY LIKE WE HAVE IT AND START GIVING TAXES BACK TO THOSE WHO HAVE EARNED IT!
    I guess the lesson is claim 10 dependents, put your calculated tax amount in the bank, then send a check at the end of the year!

  2. Guess they are behind this year (first time this has ever happened). Usually I get the federal refund the quickest with state refund taking at least a couple months more. Received the state tax refund but no sign of federal refund yet. I e-filed on 23-Jan with an acceptance on 12-Feb. Still processing.

    Reply
  3. I filed a very simple tax return Feb. 2nd. The IRS accepted it Feb. 12th. Its July 7th and I still don’t have my refund. I’m so frustrated.

    Reply
  4. Filed April 10th and the site says it was accepted and still be processed. A simple return – no dependents, or deductions, single filing. I understand that pandemic unemployment was not supposed to be taxed. The explanation is that they are reviewing those cases – here it is now July 1 and although I have direct deposit, no refund has been issued to my bank. I owed the State and paid them right away – frustrating that the Federal is taking so long. What can we do? I smell a rat – too many folks have not gotten the money back that they worked for! Bad business, IRS!

    • I’m pretty close to your dates. E-Filed 4/5 and it’s still being processed. What gets me really frustrated is I had them deduct my 1st quarterly payment for 2021 in the amount of $500. I made my 2nd payment of $500 in June. I have to pay them on time but they can make us wait….and wait….and WAIT!

    • Smelling a Rat is an understatement, something is really wrong here. Covid is NOT the problem though they are using it as the scape goat. Is it not interesting how the IRS can put thousands of dollars into your account via Direct Deposit within days of a bill being passed, yet I’m going on two months of a simple tax return filing and nothing!! Yes, it’s a giant sized Rat and citizens need to be more vocal, this is not simply because of Covid, there is something else going on here. Once again i reiterate I got money from stimulus immediately Direct deposited and I didn’t even ask for it!! Yet this is my money they are holding now and they can’t Direct Deposit it from a simply return!!

      Reply
  5. Just checked my refund status today and it says its been approved, and we will see the deposit by July 5. They also added in some missing stimulus well. It’s been a long 16 weeks but nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope everyone here gets good news soon as well. Cheers

      • Hopefully, not everyone has to wait that long, and that they are just now catching up with things. Not sure if it helped my case, but I wrote to my local congressman last week explaining that my wife and I have expensive medications that we budgeted for with our return money. And were having a really hard time making those ends meet. Could just be coincidental timing that the next week our return was approved.

  6. Can we impose a penalty on the IRS since our refunds (ya know, our money) is significantly late? This is ridiculous that we are having to wait so long.

    Reply
  7. Filed mine in early March, it has now been 15 weeks. I have gotten through to the IRS many times but it’s been no help. First they told me it was in the errors department, the next time they told me they could not find my return, then they told me they didn’t know what was going on so I got in touch with an advocate. She told me I’d have my return by July 9th and then called me back an hour later telling me it was being reviewed so she was ending my case as there was nothing she could do. I called again last week and was told I was randomly picked for review, which I don’t believe. I think they are just telling us any excuse they can come up with so I asked to speak to a supervisor who was supposed to call me back within 24 hours. I still have not received that call. It’s ridiculous and pathetic. They need to get their stuff together. It’s my money, if I owed them money they’d be harassing me and garnishing my wages but I’m just supposed to wait.

    • Hi Ashley,
      What was your secret to getting through to a real person? I get recordings each time. The latest one says 16 weeks, which I doubt since many here have passed that timeframe. Thanks much.

      Reply
      • I have gotten through twice using this method. Still couldn’t tell me much in the end but at least I got through. I’m at 77 days now (electronic submission).
        How do you speak to a live person at the IRS?
        The IRS telephone number is 1-800-829-1040.
        The first question the automated system will ask you is to choose your language.
        Once you’ve set your language, do NOT choose Option 1 (regarding refund info). Choose option 2 for “Personal Income Tax” instead.
        Next, press 1 for “form, tax history, or payment”.
        Next, press 3 “for all other questions.”
        Next, press 2 “for all other questions.”
        When the system asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, do NOT enter anything.
        After it asks twice, you will be prompted with another menu.
        Press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
        Finally, press 4 for all other inquiries. The system should then transfer you to an agent.

    • I am in the exact same situation and I am furious! I am a single mom who makes the exact cut off amount in order to not receive a stimulus, I would at LEAST like my taxes back.

  8. Please, please look into why we have not received our refund for 2020 taxes! It was accepted on April 26th. My husband and I are retired on a limited income. We had planned on it long before this! It has caused a hardship. Waiting for your reply!

  9. Mailed it in over two months ago. Certified mail says somebody received it (almost two weeks after I mailed it). But since I’ve heard nothing – I would really just like to ensure they received it and it’s being processed. I’ve tried every number I can find for the IRS, but just robots with no information. Would it be that hard to just check a box on a website to acknowledge receipt? I’m sure this could be automated.

  10. Call 18008290582 ext 652. This is the number I always get through on. Call early morning about 7:15 or so is the time I have been getting through. It will put you on hold for about 15 minutes before someone picks up.

      • I went a local liberty tax back in February and e-filed with them and requested my refund be direct deposited. It’s now July, I still have not received any update on my refund even being accepted. There’s no way to get anyone on the phone and the only message I receive when checking my status is to check my processing and date information again. How can I do that when my information is correct and no updates are available? I have no idea what else to do.

  11. Wow after reading all the comments/seeing how many files back in Feb. and March I’m never going to get my refund. This is totally ridiculous.

    • After calling the 18008290582 the robot said it will take 16 weeks from the day it was filed! 16WEEKS! How are they going to send the child credit now in July, if we haven’t gotten our money back to us? It funny how quick they are to take your money but when ti come to refunds we will see it in 2022.

  12. are we allowed to charge the IRS interest like they charge us? They don’t understand that we the common folks rely on the refund as part of our yearly income. Are we allowed to charge them for interest on late payments?

  13. I filed back in February, and all the site says is still processing, almost 4 months to the day. No letter requesting more info, nothing at all. I can’t get through to the IRS by phone. Email always responds that’s not our department thanks for the inquiry. Can someone out there help???

    • Omg no seriously?! I thought mine was bad I efiled on 4/23 and h e direct deposit same as many years previously I track it everyday just shows “your return still being processed”. Forget calling irs you won’t get thru I’ve tried at 7:01 am, and many times through the day just get a recording “sorry we’re not taking calls on the topic you selected try back another day or time” that’s going on three weeks now. Thanks to Biden and this new child payment starting next month tax refunds going to take even longer and I know a lot of people still waiting for their refund too. This is BS! Irs needs to take down that crap about “9 out of 10 efilers with direct deposit get their refund in 21 days or less” cause that’s totally untrue. I’m a time when people need and are relying planning on their refund to take weeks-months past the 21 days is Ridiculous just ridiculous.

      You should contact with your US Congress, they may help to find out why or make process going faster for you.

      It is odd, they own me for more than $2000, but I still have to pay Estimate taxes and I just paid for 2nd Quarter Estimate taxes !!!

      Reading the news are the same “more stimulus checks coming”, may be “fourth stimulus check coming” and if it true our refund will be “on time” for April 15, 2022.

  14. This has been an abysmal process. To start off, the IRS still has not provided me with my 3rd stimulus check and my taxes were filed and accepted on April 14, 2021.

    • Absolutely the truth been waiting since February and mine still says in process like come on you don’t have to wait to get your money from me every week but at the end of the year when it’s my turn to get my return for what I busted my ass all year to earn I am still waiting almost 6 months later as for people who could work a month if even at all and sit home and collect unemployment… this is crap

    • April 14 is “not too bad” compare with several people filed in March and still did not get money. I filed on March 27 and got accepted same day. I even talked with live agent and she told me she released my refund (it seems she worked on my tax return when I was on phone with her) and I should get money in 4-6 weeks. Nothing happen yet !!!

  15. Filed 04/16 been over 8 weeks and still nothing. I filed electronically and nothing different or special on taxes for this year. We used HR BLOCK to file it was accepted by IRS within 2 days. But still no return! I have tried every phone number listed to try and get a REAL PERSON to talk to at IRS and nothing. I know if money was owed to them they would not be as patient. I am going to contact major newspapers and contact representative to see if I can get some action. In a time like this people need their money and no time to be holding up what is rightfully owed to them.

    Reply
    • 4/16 is not too bad !!! I filed on 3/27 . On 4/20, I was told my tax return was finished while I was the phone with IRS real agent. She told me she just finished my return and release my refund and I should get within 4-6 weeks. Today is 6/10 or more than 7 weeks, I still do not get my refund.

      By the way, the phone for option 1 is used to work (I used it to talk with live agent twice), now it is for 1040X only.

      If you read the news, only thing they care is giving out money for stimulus. Not many media mentions about tax refund.

    • Exactly! I’m with u!! I’m still waiting for mine refund too. Have tried calling 7:01 am and throughout day with ZERO luck. IRS needs to post something I.e. an update on wth is going on with 2020 refunds on their website (if efiled and have direct deposit).

      • I got lucky to get through and talked with 2 IRS agents awhile ago (more than a month). I can tell they were very nice people. However, I still did not get my refund as they promise and I don’t think it is their faults. I truly believe the fault from the top guy who do not care about the money they own us.

She worked on my return while I was on the phone with her and finally she said she just released my refund and it will take 4-6 weeks to get my refund. Few weeks later, I was able to talk with another live agent, he told me they still review my return even the other agent already released my refund. Yesterday, I could not reach them and my return “is still in process”. So there are more than 10 weeks, I still do not get my refund !!!

  17. This is quite a failure by our IRS. There is no regard for the people they serve, they take no responsibility and feel they owe no explanations for the status of your tax return. I have done what they asked. Waited 21 days before calling and finally after 14 attempts I actually was able to speak to a human. She gave me no information other than to say “It will be 10 more weeks”. Well, now it has been 15 weeks with no response, and after trying all the tips on how to get to talk to an agent, with no success I am left to wonder what the hell is going on. I feel like they owe me an explination! If I owed money they would be making sure I was paying it!

  20. I filed &was accepted 3/13 through TurboTax, I call everyday and get the high demand message on both the irs and advocate numbers, ofcourse TurboTax debited my bank account this week for their tax fees, it was suppose to come out of my refund, so now with rent, electric, cable, and discover all due I’m short 100.00. I can’t even reach an advocate and since it’s been 11 weeks with no mail correspondence from the irs I can only assume it’s a manual review due to me being self employed, making extremely less money the last two years, claiming I lived in a natural disaster area in 2018 due to hurricane Michael so they automatically use my prior years income to calculate my refund, I completely understand why I would have a manual review. I have received two letters since I filed, one stating the rebate amounts and deposit dates, and another stating that in July I would receive monthly payments because I have 4 kids, so it’s a sign they did something with my return. That something being putting it on a cabinet and it collecting dust, we went through this pandemic since last March, that’s more than enough time for a government agency to prepare for the crazy that was going to be tax season 2021. I just want to speak to an advocate, this is beyond frustrating.

  25. I filed Mar 19 and it still says in process. The only reason I think my taxes are still in process is because I gave birth last yr in July. And that child is do two stimulus checks. The 600$ and the 1,400 dollars. Now this in process mess should be the reason my taxes being over looked by irs. Because the irs is adding more money to my taxes I hope.

  26. Electronically filed March 16 through HR Block. Did not claim any earned income credits or stimulus owed. No kids. Just a straight regular return like the years before with no issues. IRS site says being processed. We had planned to pay off our credit card with the refund, but now we’re accumulating interest on that each day that goes by without action from the IRS. I read somewhere that they are supposed to pay interest on late refunds. We shall see. This is just nuts.

    • bum that lives off my friend that hadnt received any of his stimulus checks just got his current tax return along with his stimulus money. i filed march 25th electronically with 2019s return that was professionally done by a business tax accountant (my sister) but with eitc and ctc, and if im not mistaken he filed around when i did, i believe some point in march. i believe people claiming unreceived stimulus money and incorrect amounts are being served their taxes 1st, and holding up all returns, especially with ctc and eitc, when their amount is not correct. this is going to make a massive hold up on everyones taxes, especially with the woes the irs are claiming (understaffed, old equipment, etc, etc). their priority is stimulus money. im seeing articles that make is sound like getting next years child tax credits out starting in july is going to take precedence over us getting our real money. bs all around. they shouldnt take money they cant give back in a timely manner. and the amount they pay in “interest” is a few percent quarterly. so theyre screwing you out of all of your interest. if u dont see ur return in 6 months, u can sue for it.

      • I filed on 3/20/21 and still have not received anything. I did call the IRS 2 weeks ago and learned there were no errors on my file, but that it could still take up to 10 weeks to get a refund. I’m currently on week 8 and waiting patiently, but still frustrated.

        • My daughter filed 3-11-21, so she’s on week 10 now and still no refund. No competent beings at the IRS to speak to, if you can even get through.

    • I filed at the end of February and I too have not received my refund. I’ve tried calling and get nowhere as well. Very frustrating.

    • Filed 12th of Feb. Still being processed. Bs. Nearly 5 months later. 1 more month and I can sue for interest on my return. I’m also due all the taxes I paid in on my unemployment. What a joke

    • I electronically filed via TurboTax on 02/27/2021 and it was excepted immediately with a deposit date of 03/24/21 and that date has come and gone! The site has said still processing since then! Here we are towards the end of June and still no refun! Cannot get through to a live person at the IRS! So frustrating! I have never experienced such a delay in my life!!!
