Checking Your IRS Tax Refund Status on WMR or IRS2Go For Direct Deposit Payment Date

With tax season underway, lots of taxpayers are keen to get an update on their federal refund processing status’ on the IRS’ Where is My Refund (WMR) website or on the IRS2Go mobile app.

Despite the IRS upgrading WMR/IRS2Go in 2024 to provide clear messaging on tax refund status’ there is still a lot of confusion as people anxiously await their refunds. In particular it is not always clear on how the IRS is processing returns and when filers they can expect their refund check to hit their bank account or debit card.

In fact, if you search tax forums one of the most common questions are around differences between the 3 WMR/IRS2Go status’ which are Return Received, Refund (Return) Approved and Refund Sent. The tracker is updated daily (~3AM EST) so there is no need to constantly check it.

Checking WMR and IRS2Go Refund Status Updates

You can start using the WMR website or IRS2Go app to start checking on the status of your return 24 hours after the IRS receives your e-filed return or 2 to 3 weeks after you mail a paper return.

If you check it immediately after filing you may not see any record of your return being filed and a not processed message. So give it a day or two after filing and don’t panic. You or your preparer will also get an email confirmation from the IRS of the filing submission if electronically filed.

As the IRS processes your return it will progress through the 3 stages and provide you information (via IRS topic or transaction codes) on your tax refund processing and/or if you need to take actions like providing more information or calling the IRS.

Here are more details on each status and what each one means:

Refund Status Bar 1: Return Received

This status is the same as “Return Accepted by the IRS.” This means that your tax return has passed initial screens by the IRS covering rudimentary fraud checks, verifying your SSN and ensuring no obvious red flags on your return.  

IRS2Go WMR Status Graphic - Return Recieved

Your tax return will remain in this status while the IRS processes it in more detail to ensure it is compliant and the refund amount is accurate. Tax Topic 152 also is just a general notification/message confirming this.

Your refund can remain in the status for a while if it is complex or the IRS feels further information is needed.  The IRS is however saying it processes most returns in 21 days if your return is not flagged for further review.

There is no need to follow-up with the IRS if the WMR tool shows the status of Return Received. If this status is showing, the IRS is processing your return and further calls or letters won’t speed up the process.

If your return does take longer than normal to process due to additional IRS checks, your refund status message will change to something like what is shown below, and you will need to wait for the IRS to update you or respond to any notices requesting additional information.

WMR/IRS2Go Status Bar 2: Refund Approved 

This status will appear if your tax return checks out and your return has been approved for payout by direct deposit or check. A personalized refund date will be provided, and the app status will now be Refund Approved.

If you elected the direct deposit (DD) option for your refund, you would see a date by which it should be credited to your account.

While the IRS does promise that it will process most returns in under 21 days, it could take longer if complications come up. This delay is what frustrates most taxpayers as the IRS does at times provide limited information if errors in your return are spotted.

While some information is provided on WMR and IRS2Go, the IRS will generally mail you for further detailed information. You can also check your IRS tax transcript for details. This could add days, weeks and even months if lots of additional information is need.

WMR or IRS2Go Status Bar 3: Refund Sent

As the name implies the status means the IRS has sent your refund to your nominated bank account(s). It will give you a specific date when the refund was sent

Direct Deposit payments are generally processed within 2 to 3 business days. I.e. the money will be in your bank available for withdrawal within this timeframe.

IRS2Go Refund Status - Refund Sent

You should only contact your bank or financial institution if you have not received your refund payment after 2 to 3 days of the IRS refund sent date.

Note that you may get another message below the refund deposit/credit details saying your refund was reduced or offset (as discussed in the sections below). You will get a tax code notice for why this happened and options to appeal. But the IRS will still send you what they have deemed approved.

If you requested a paper check this means your check has been mailed and could take 10+ days for you to receive this via mail. It could take weeks or months if your mailing address is outside the US.

When do IRS2Go/WMR & Transcript Get Updated For Tax Return and Refund Processing?

The WMR website and IRS2Go mobile app can update any day of the week. However, major updates on daily accounts are usually Wednesday; and major updates on weekly accounts are usually Saturday.

You can see if your IRS account is daily or weekly in this article. This will generally show which batch or cycle your return and refund (if applicable) is being processed in the IRS master file (IMF). The IRS has older systems and does most of its processing in “batches” or “cycles.”

So knowing which one you are in can given you some guidance on where your return processing and WMR/IRS2Go updates are likely to happen.

WMR and IRS2Go are however down for scheduled system maintenance on Sunday and Monday nights per the screenshot below. However, during the peak of tax season, it is not uncommon to see longer outages.

Further when too many users are on or attempting to access the refund trackers, the IRS can restrict access to these tools and people sometimes see the message that system cannot verify their identity. They may also see missing status bars because of this, as discussed in the next section below.

IRS batch processing generally takes place 12am to 3am (EST) and refund direct deposit processing takes 3:30am to 6:00am (EST) – most nights, expect Sundays.

Similar to WMR and IRS2Go your free IRS Tax transcript can get update any day of the week. However, major updates on daily account are generally on Tuesdays; and mass updates on weekly accounts are usually on Fridays. This lines up with the cycle codes as discussed in this video.

When do IRS2Go/WMR & Transcript Get Updated For Tax Return and Refund Processing?

How do I check my refund status?

Once your status is available you can go to the IRS refund status site to check your refund status and payment date (once issued).

You will need your SSN, filing status and the exact amount of your expected refund on your filed return to verify your identity and access your refund status. Key fields are shown below.

Where is my IRS Federal Refund

If you cannot use the above method, you can call the IRS.

2024 Where’s My Refund Tool Updates

One of the biggest complaints around the IRS’ “Where’s My Refund” tool was the limited or generalized information it provided, particularly for held up refunds, which caused many taxpayers to desperately call the IRS for updates.

Fortunately in 2024, thanks to additional funding in the Inflation Reduction Act, the WMR tool will see several enhancements. This includes showing more detailed refund status messages and delay reasons using simple language (and fewer system codes).

With the improvements, taxpayers will receive clearer updates, including whether the IRS needs them to respond to a letter for additional information. These updates will hopefully reduce the need for a lot of taxpayers to call the IRS for basic refund processing information.

Help! My WMR status bars have disappeared

Per the IRS, the WMR tracker graphic may disappear or not be shown if your return is still processing (TC 152) or falls under IRS review after it is received (Status Bar 1: Return Received) because additional information is needed for your return.

The IRS still has your return but things are essentially on hold until the IRS gets the additional information from you to continue processing your return .

You will either get directions on WMR or IRS2Go or the IRS will provide contact information. Follow the provided instructions and return any additional information ASAP to get your potential refund and reduce any further delays.

An explanation or instructions (see IRS Tax or error codes) may be provided on your transcript, ahead of WMR/IRS 2Go updating in some instance. This can happen even if you previously checked WMR and it showed the status as “Return Received.” 

However it is not uncommon to also have “N/A” on your transcript and see no or disappearing bars on WMR/IRS2Go. In this case you will just need to wait for IRS to finish their processing.

Talk to your accountant, tax advocate or tax professional if you are not clear on what the IRS is asking for.

How far back does the WMR tool go for checking my refund status?

The IRS recently made enhancements to the Where is My Refund tool (and IRS2Go mobile application) that allows taxpayers to check the status of their refund for the current tax year and two previous years. This is helpful for tax payers still waiting on past year tax returns to be processed.

Originally it was only limited to the refund processing status of the current tax year, with tax transcripts being the source for prior years.

Tax filers will need their SSN or ITIN, filing status and expected refund amount from the original filed tax return
for the tax year they’re checking.

Note that this multi-year status checking enhancement is only for the online WMR tool. Those calling the refund hotline are still limited to inquiring about the current year’s tax return.

Why is my Refund Status Showing a Reduced Refund Message (Code 203 or 570)

One thing many tax payers see during their tax refund processing is a message that that refund has been approved for direct deposit (WMR status = Refund Sent), but that it has been reduced, per the screenshot below.

Refund Reduced Offset Status

This message just means your refund has been garnished or reduced for a government (BFS) determined reason (tax offset). This is generally because you owe money to the federal government because of a delinquent debt – e.g. overpaid unemployment, unpaid past year tax obligations etc.

Your return can also be held up and reduced if you see Tax Code 570 on your transcript. This code means your return is on hold due due to additional verification which may or may not have a monetary impact. No further processing or refund payment can be made until this hold is lifted following additional IRS processing.

You can see more in this article or video, but you would have received a letter advising of you of the reason and you can call or file an appeal (via BFS) to claim back any deducted refund amounts.

Using my IRS Transcript and Cycle code to get more details on refund processing status

The lack of progress or details in the WMR or IRS2Go app has made some tax filers use their IRS tax transcript (free from your IRS account) to get more details on their return/refund processing status. Your transcript which shows various tax processing codes and a “cycle code.”

This is an eight digit number that indicates when your tax return posted to the IRS Master File (IMF). The cycle code is updated regularly and when combined with the tax topic code, can provide insight into your tax refund status, processing stages and potential direct deposit date. You can see a deeper discussion in this article.

Reader Feedback on IRS Delays (with some help)

Here a sampling of some comments and responses from readers of this site on this topic and WMR refund status/processing:

(From Dorothy) We wait and wait all year long then bam we file we get a big refund and we are told 10 to 21 days and what do we do. We sit here looking at our refund tracker we log on to WMR site and we check wmr2go we just keep watching and waiting for our Money.

Then just when we are not looking something changes meaning our bars move and we check our accounts and there’s our Money. But here’s what bugs me the most. The IRS is looking at us and sees we owe them and way before we get notice or told what to do next.

They are saying NOW you must pay. What if we made them WAIT. Or when a letter comes we send it back with a response we will get back to you in 5 to 10 days. Wonder what they would think. But here’s for all of us ITS OUR MONEY AND WE WANT IT NOW

(From Brandi on her WMR experience) To those who have been told that your returns are under review I e-filed on Jan 5th last year but of course it wasn’t sent to IRS until Jan 20th (when IRS starts accepting returns). It was accepted the next day.

My bars on WMR disappeared after about about a week and have not reappeared since. I was informed on 2/10 that my return went under review on 2/2 and to expect it in 6-8 weeks. On 2/24 I received a [IRS] letter stating that I needed to verify my identity before my return could be processed further. I called and sat on hold for 1hr 45 min before talking to a person.

I verified my name, social security number, birthdate, address, fathers name, child’s birthdate, child’s social security number and the total amount of my return. By the way, none of my personal info has changed in the last 10 years. I was then told that my return would now be returned to the processing department to be completed and to expect it within 6 weeks from that day.

Yes, 6 more weeks from the date i verified my information. Unless there is some other problem, then i will be contacted by mail to provide whatever else is needed. This was the worse case scenario she said but was preparing me just in case. I doubt it will be 6 more weeks or that they will need anything else but I am so upset that I have been waiting since Jan 20th and it took over one month just to receive a letter to verify info that has not changed in over 10 years.

Now I’m waiting 6 more weeks for my money. I know everyone’s situation is different but if you have been waiting a while or were told yours is under review or you need to do identity verification, this is possibly what you could expect to happen with your return.

Bottom line just don’t depend on the IRS to be fast this year. Some are getting their returns quick and then there are some like myself that will be waiting much longer!

(From Mary Elizabeth) I understand that this is a stressful situation. My own bars had disappeared for six days now while I was accepted on the 21st. I am due a refund according to Turbotax by 2/11.  The number and extension provided below has personally helped me through my own tax problems, as well as my friends and loved ones; while the general or common number gives millions of people the “automated voice” and “runaround”.

If someone to reach a real person in the IRS office, do the following:

1) First, make sure the time is at 7amEST in the morning. (Note: this is the perfect time to reach someone to avoid LONG wait times!)
2) Call 1-800-829-0582 and press extension 633 (Don’t worry, this department is the quickest and will still research your situation to give you a definite answer)
3) Good Luck

Some of these examples are likely what you are facing so hopefully the answers here can help you. Please leave a comment below if you need more feedback or want to share your experience.

  1. PATH MESSAGE does NOT mean you are finished processing and waiting for a date!!!

    This is why a lot of people were upset last year. Because of this way of thinking and what others were saying!

    Do NOT rely on WMR alone. Transcripts are 100% certian. Everyone should be able to access transcripts. If you can’t make a ID.ME account, keep trying until a real person comes on.

    If your transcripts show you are fully processed and just wanting on a date, then I would be a little more confident that yes, you are done and just wanting on path to lift. But please remember you are not 100% “good” until you see that 846 code with a DDD date.

    The April 15th date is on everyone’s transcripts. It’s just tue last day of the tax season.

    • Thanks for the details Christina. Transcripts are 100% correct at a point in time, but the IRS (per their guidance) have said these are updated regularly as new codes and cycle dates are updated. I would say you should use a combination of WMR/IRS2Go and Transcript to infer refund processing status.

      Even then, you will be a the whim of the IRS and subject to overall processing delays or additional verification.

    • I e-filed my return on 02/01/22 with no mistakes have’nt received my refund yet keep getting that same message when I check Where’s my Refund proccessing delayed!

  2. Hello Everyone,
    After the IRS Where’s My Refund website updated last week, my friend can no longer track his 2020 tax return. He was able to see bars and it said, “Being Process.” Now, when he tries to trace his 2020 tax return, the IRS Where’s My Refund, displays” information is incorrect and doesn’t match.” However, before the update, the website displayed bars and 2020 tax return was being processed. I truly believe the IRS is focus on the 2021 tax returns now. Is it still possible for people that didn’t received their 2020 tax return, still track it using the IRS Where’s My Refund Website mobile app, when it states, “2021.” Thank you for any suggestions or help.

    • Hi Sharinda,
      You’re right, they are focusing now on the 2021 returns, and unfortunately, your 2020 return went on ‘the back burner’ until… who knows??
      I am still awaiting my 2019 return, same thing happened to me with the bars and status last January. :(
      The best thing to do now is call on Monday morning at 7am (local time) and have your return handy, they will ask for AGI.
      1-800-829-1040 press 1 for English (2 for Spanish), then 2 for Personal Tax Return (1 for business, 3 for all other questions). Or if asked to put extension# in, press 652.
      Good Luck ,
      ~ Crystal :)

      • Thanks. I plan to help a friend write and call them. I’m glad I took screen shots of the tracking the process from beginning to now. I will send screen shots along with a letter. Unbelievable.

    • My husband and I are dealing with the same situation. All the way up until they updated their system, it was saying “our taxes were being processed”. Now, after the update, it says “Information doesn’t match our records”. Its funny, because all this time, up to a week ago, our information matches their records but now it doesn’t. You would think they would’ve sent a email, a letter or something. Now here we are back at square one, except this time, we literally know less than what we did before their system update. I have never seen or heard of anything like it.

    • Mined was feb 11th and mines finally coming june 8th it is so sad also i called alot as well. I have been super patient.

    • I filed my taxes feb 15 2020 and i have identity theft in the past so they held my taxes for 3 months so i call them yo find out because my bars got stuck in refund received because i have to email mine because i need an ipp # to e file my taxes and I didnt have it so everything was good after i called so now she told me that my taxes it was going to processing for nine weeks so I wait nine weeks after that and I called again and they said that i should be getting the money by July 30 so that date came and nothing happenned so on top of that my bars have been dissapear likes 3 times and there is no way to check my status so after July 30 i call again and they told me something happenned with that information and ask me if i received any letter and i said not one so s he said that my taxes it was going to another 9 weeks for processing again ridiculous and i was heated so the next day i called because i couldnt wait and believe what was going on so s he was once with me and make a referral so now they have 4 weeks instar of 9 and yesterday i called and they said the process it will be over in 1 more week and then they should put a date to receive my refund and is been almost 7 months and they have not sent me a Goddamn letter can you believe that and on top of that i still have no bars either so i can check my refund status,so i know what are you going thru.

      • I have been waiting over 7,months also. I paid a tax account $350 because I am self-employed. The irs sent me a letter after THREE months, to verify my identity. I got all the way through the online ID, then was told to call. Waited hours each day, finally got through. That was 4 months ago. My refund isn’t even that big. The main thing I was worried about, is the mortgage lender needed the transcript. Since there is no transcript yet (sigh), I had to pay same accountant another $250 to do a Certified Profit Loss form. Ugh,im so over this. At this rate, I will get my 2020 back (knock wood) before my 2019!

      • Sorry if this sounds rude, but please don’t take this wrong. I could barely understand what you were trying to say. It was very confusing. Hopefully you don’t normally comment without punctuation. If you do, and it’s not intentional, try to remember ending each sentence with a period, question mark or an exclamation mark. Please accept my apology if this is insulting. I would want someone to let me know if this was an issue for me as well. Sometimes we don’t realize what we’re doing. I sincerely hope everything is settled with the IRS ASAP for you. I know exactly what you’re dealing with. Last year, I didn’t get my refund until December 14, 2020. It was such a stressful year. It’s starting to feel like this is a repeat. Only good thing that came from my situation… My boys were able to have a nice Christmas. Good luck.

        • I read that long, non-punctuated ramble, and found it equally difficult to follow. Once I started using his use of the word “so” as a period, and things began making some sense. However, toward the end, it simply became noise. I’m hopeful that he, whomever he is, received his refund, eventually. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt, and imagine he used that money to buy himself a brand new cell phone with functioning “period” & “comma” keys.
          Haha, I’m not as apologetic as you, Sandra, I’m sorry. I tend to take the more sarcastic, low road I guess. Lol
          I’m joking. Just trying to bring some humor to anyone who may be frustrated by waiting for their own return.
          Have a wonderfully blessed day.

  3. This is so frustrating. I’ve never had to wait this long before. I filed on 1/27/20. It was accepted, and the status bar said processing. Then this week, the status bar disappeared and of course it says “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.” I am aware that they claim they did not start processing some until Mid-February, but why take the status bar away? Just frustrated because when I filed, I was unaware returns with EIC or Child Tax Credit would not be processed according to the refund schedule.

    • i relate to your frustration. It’s like hurry up and wait. Mine however, once I submitted via turbo tax said it was accepted.. and that’s also what the where’s my refund page shows.. accepted. This was ‘accepted’ (last year not accepted had to re view and resubmit my tax file for 2018) anyhow.. it’s been on “accepted for 12 days. I was hoping to see that orange bar move over to ‘processing’ . I want to pay off a debt consolidation. I need food in the house. I have two teenagers needing sports equipment. I’m like.. why was it accepted, told to wait 24 hours to see further information yet both the ‘accepted’ indicator as well as the refund status page still show ‘ accepted ‘ ..

    • I got the same message “We have received your tax return and it is being processed” and the bar disappeared.
      I have my direct deposit to 2 different banks, IRS is already refunded $ to one of my bank account, however, the other account has not been received $ yet.
      I contacted that bank but they don’t see any schedule from IRS.
      I looked at my tax transcript and the weird thing is “841 Refund called”.
      I don’t know what that means.

  4. I filed my taxes March 3 and still no refund and its July 15th. No letters nothing. Still says pending approval.
    WTH. I’ve given up until I see it if I ever do. IRS is horrible this year.

  5. Mines say approved my tax refunds is scheduled to be mailed by May 3rd but it never sent it never went to the 3rd bar I wanna know will I recieve it this week or I’m confused on what it means

    • I’d be on the phone until I got some satisfaction. I’d want to trace the payment .. I’d want to know if it was shown as
      cashed then I’d want or would have to have agreement as to cancelling the lost check and reissuing a replacement
      and would offer to sign a document to confirm my good faith. Good Luck to you. hope you received it by now.

  6. So I was checking on wmr and it told me my info was incorrect and to wait for a confirmation email even though it was accepted the day I filed my taxes. But when I looked on IRS2GO it said it’ll be deposited on the 28th…..but looking online a lot of people are having to do ID verification. I don’t even know what address they have on file and I have no way of getting to the IRS building if I give them the wrong address. So I might not even get my small return at all. Which means I can’t even pay the few small bills I have…..what do I do??

    • very strange.. very bizarre… I read your post, decided to install the irs2go app on my phone.. entered the proper credentials and it spun as if loading then at the bottom said we cant verify your information or something to that effect.. yet the wmr website shows everything input, as correct .. loads moving foward and is stuck on ‘accepted’ for 12 days now. i dont understand because the irs2go app , once opened asks for the exact same information as the website. i’m very concerned now. what’s going on ?

  7. We cannot provide any information about your refund. You must wait at least 24 hours after you get the acknowledgement e-mail that your tax return was received by the IRS does this mean they haven’t received it yet in spite of me filling in the 3rd

  8. I field my return on the 2nd of february an now is the 20th the first week it say received then the baris disappeared all i am getting is a certification saying still being processed. Is this normal

  9. At first mines said it been accepted and it have been received than we go check on it a week later it said it going 2 be delayed than when i go hrblock it says it been completed but on irs it still says delayed and can nobody give me a answer on irs it say delay but on hrblock it says completely

  10. I e-filed on 03 03 2018and was told to check back may 14th so I called today that I was under a2nd review that began April26th and to call back in6 weeks this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard I pay my taxes on time but get treated like I don’t if I was late I would be fined. Us government gets away Scot free while us CITIZENS who need our money lose. I haven’t received any notifications via phone or mail what can I do?

  11. I e-filed over 7 weeks ago and my status has been saying “Your tax return is still being processed” since I started checking online a few weeks ago. I do my own taxes cause it’s just the basic stuff, (employee, married with kids) and this long wait is making me nervous that I did something wrong! I called the IRS last week and the automated service told me the same status as it did online but then it hung up on me! So AJ never got to talk to anyone about.

  12. My refund was shown as received and then the message reverted to … your return is being processed and we will give you a gerund date when available?? I then get a letter from our friends at the IRS saying my return is being “throughly reviewed”!!!! I’ve always payed my taxes and never had an issue with the IRS …. until now… I need my money… thanks United States Govt!! You have my undying respect (NOT) for holding a broke persons small tax return…

  13. Hello , So I filled my taxes February 15 , A letter was sent to me on March 7 about A 4883c , I called March 20th , The lady I spoke to told me I Was approved. But WMR says It’s still being process does this mean anything ?

    • The representatives know what is going on in real time, so I would go with what they tell you (on the phone). The website can sometimes be up to a week behind with updated information.

  14. I filed my taxes and was accepted 3-6-18 after two days I lost my bars! I’m getting the generic still processing date not available. I’m confused by all the comments. I’m not sure if I should call early or just wait it out. I’ve been told it can get sent as early as Tuesday and I’m hopping but is there ever an instance where you can get your refund before you are given a date?

  15. My tax returns have received 03/02/2018 my return shows that it is being processed take this long to be approved will get approved soon.

      • What does it mean when wmr now says if u filed a complete and Accurate return u will receive a refund in 21days does that mean there’s a problem

  16. I’m not sure what WMR is but I file my taxe on 02/05 was received and accepted but when I check the IRS website and it says

    We cannot provide any information about your refund. You must wait at least 24 hours after you get the acknowledgement e-mail that your tax return was received by the IRS

    I checked the IRS2GO on 02/17/18 and it said I was gonna received it on 02/22 went back to the same app and it said this the next day and it says my information was wrong I’m so irritated I don’t know what to do I need my refund please help what’s going on!!!!

  17. Hi Robin Profitt

    I efiled and was accepted on 1/31. Lost my bars, tt 152, but still have amount and filing status on left on 2/10 or 2/11. WMR says return still being processed and refund date will be provided when available since 2/10 or so. I called the IRS today a nice rep explained to me I need to do ID verify. It was in that ID verify deptmnt. No letter have been sent to me asking me to ID verify but she said I should get one and if not received one by 2/28 to call back to have one generated and mailed some I can follow the steps to do ID verify.

    • Catreece,

      Have you received your refund yet? IF so how long it take to received the fund cause I’m in the same boat as you are.

  18. If my WMR statues says deposite in your account on 2-22-18 would I recieve it from H&R Block that same day?

  19. My tax refund hasn’t had a tracking bar show up at all. It just says it is still being processed and a refund dated will be posted when available. What does that mean tomorrow will make 21 days since it was accepted by the IRS on Jan 29. I havent received any letter saying I needed to provide any additional information either.

    • The same here, I never saw a bar. Not sure if it was ever there but, it’s giving me the same spill… “ Being Processed”! The amount is will on the left with no codes. I’m totally confused ‍♀️

    • Mine says the same thing it’s been 23 days today and still same still being processed a refund date will be provided when available check back here or the app for updates so what does that mean. I guess my question to you is has yours changed at all?

  20. My bars disappeared the year before last and I never received a letter or a topic change and my refund came on time. My bars disappeared this year and I still have the tax topic 152 just as the year before last. So telling people that their tax return is in review or on hold is really misleading. I have had bars missing for a little over a week now.

    • Yes, telling people their return is under review based on WMR having no bars and the path message and tax topic is very miss leading and completely wrong. If some one can’t back up that claim with IRS proof then no one needs to be saying that.

  21. Ive been waiting in my return sense march 10th which it said it will be sent out..but check my account nth there…go to the irs website to see its being held.i have not recieve no letter from irs saying why there reviewing it.and when i call they act lost on why its being held…i really need my money and answers

  22. I received a letter in the mail king for additional information (proof i took care of three children…nephews an niece) they had actually lived with me at least 6months out of the year I faxed the documents required and got a letter few weeks later letting me kno they had received my documents an if I hadn’t heard back fromthem by April 29th to act them in which I haven’t heard back so do you kno why on “Where’s My Refund” it STILL says being “reviewed”

  23. I filed my taxes back in Feb 5th my status hasn’t changed I called they said we have to verify my identity so I did they said I would have my refund my 27th of April well it is the 28th still and don’t have them yet I am losing my house and every thing

  24. I was just wondering if anyone knows when I will get my refund because on the IRS2Go app it says I’m scheduled to get it in the bank today. April 26th. But it still says I have a $0 and it still hasn’t said refund sent yet. I just don’t know what’s going on.Does anyone have any ideas ??

    • Amy, Did you ever received it? If yes, how much longer did you have to wait? I am on the same boat, supposed to be DDD today, didn’t get anything, but on WMR it hasn’t been sent yet, I still have two bars.

    • You will receive your refund within 5 business days after the date given for deposit. If you don’t have it after a week, call your bank, and if they don’t know, then you will have to get a copy of your return and call the IRS directly. 1-800-829-0582 ext. 633. Sometimes the money is deposited before the status gets updated on the IRS website/APP.

  25. I followed my refund and it was accepted on March 3 Mines still stay being process I received no later what could be the delay
