lafolston asked:


I was first told my expected refund date was changed to Feb 29th, then I was told It was delayed and to use reference 1221 when calling, next I was told that it would be deposited on
Feb 8th. Which did not happen! I was then given ref 8802 when calling and now I must use reference 1121 when calling. I have talked to several irs reps and none of the answers are the same.

    Something is wrong with your return, dude.
    You really don’t give enough detail, what do they tell you when you call?

    Did you add wrong?
    Does your name and social security number not match?
    Did you file a Sch. A and deduct more in total then you netted for the year. ooops, how did you pay for it?

    Anyway, something has kicked you out of the system, something is wrong with your return

    I’m in the same boat as you. was told 1/29, was told 2/19, and yesterday was told 2/15 and still nothing. The website still shows code 1121.

    How did you check it on the 29th of Feb or even on the 8th

    since it is now only the 4th

    I am having the same issue as above. I am expecting a large return and I know several others that are experiencing the same with a large return. I am currently waiting for my “letter” they say they are going to send. I filed on Jan. 30, electronically and it appears i will have to wait at least another 5 weeks and even then….i have heard stories that then they want you to mail in all your stuff so they can review. What a pain. I think they don’t have any money….No one at the IRS can provide a good reason for the delay….nor can they just give a date and stick with it. It is so frustrating. I don’t expect this to be resolved any time soon and i needed the money yesterday….and in case you didn’t know, keep in mind they update their systems and only deposit refunds on Friday’s. So it is best to call on Friday or the following week, but understand that info is updated only every friday. Wishing us all luck!

    I filled my retern ellectricly through H&R BLOCK. On the 16 of january. and keep gettin the same run around. nobody can tell me when i will get mine. that can take your money but now giveing it back is a diffrent story. starting to think they are rippin me of.they gave me a tax advacator they are saying they are helping but after 4 weeks they still have not done anyting for me im starting to hate the IRS thinking about never filling again. that why a lot of people started working under the table IRS is just a way for the Goverment to put there hand in your pocket. AND IM TIRED OF IT. H&R BLOCK told my to figure it out on my Own payed them for nothing.I HATE H&R BLOCK now thank for reading NEVER go through H&R bLOCK They SUX

    I filed my taxes in January. Its pushing may and they are still delayed. I called the IRS and I keep getting the same run around. Last time I called they said they put in a referral to move up the process…but the first person said I should have a response in 30 days then I was told 45 days…There only doing this cause I’m black…LOL>>>That’s a joke by the way!!

  10. Robert on Tue, 28th Apr 2009 5:31 pm 

    I have the same code. My guess is that the government is broke and is waiting on the Chinese to loan the United States the money needed to issue the return.

    i got the error 8001 what does that mean conduct analsis

  12. mike on Sun, 2nd Aug 2009 12:11 pm 

    I’ve had clients receive that 8001 code when performing the OID process for them which normally results in a large refund. Our firm has been able to sucessfully overcome that. The IRS site states they are conducting Conduct Anaylisis. 404-914-0795

    I sent my 2008 1040x on october 16, 2009. They started processing on October 30. On Decmber 1 i called about my status they told me it takes 6 to 8 weeks to get my moolah. Never got S*%t. I called after christmas they told me its processing and it will take 9-12 weeks Two days later i called to mke sure she told me i should receive it by February 19 2010 and it will take 12-16 weeks. I called two weeks later they told me its being set for examination. I told the IRS agent its almost 11 weeks i never received not even a smoke signal from the IRS. Then i told them i did everthing right. I was p.O called tax advocate they told me they IRS is examining every return which is being refunded over $4,000. My fellow citizens only in America can we witness thugs raping and pilaging innocent hardworking americans. Might as well move to North Korea or send in U.N peacekeepers to monitor our goverment

  14. nina on Mon, 8th Feb 2010 9:11 pm 

    So mine is also delayed, with the code 1201 which stands for “All other conditions not covered
    by a status code”. Just what does that even mean??? Oh please, please, please…I don’t want to sit on hold for 20 minutes to talk to the IRS! Lame.

  15. freem00 on Sat, 13th Feb 2010 5:22 am 

    I have the same problem, the irs recieved my return jan 16th, and i was suposed to recieve it by feb 2nd. I have been getting the run around, and a different excuse everytime I call. Tax payer advocate has also gave me the run around saying they cant do anything due to a system glitch. There has got to be someone that can help me. My status code changes from 1301 to 8001. Had it been me owing them, they would be charging interest but we just get ignored.

  16. Wanda H on Fri, 19th Feb 2010 2:39 pm 

    Oh My gosh!! is that what is going on with my refund. I was told that my refund is still being processed. I efile on 1-14-10. My return was accepted by IRS on 1-21-10? had a deposited date of 2-5-10. Didn’t get it, checked web site is is delayed, still being process. I believe my code is 1121. Talk to someone as of today and was told that its not personal. Tech have caught up with how the IRS process refunds and that they want to make sure before the release my $4,237 monies I dont’ own anything to them. Well, how the $%@ you gonna wanna check now that you own me monies. Can I hold up paying these blood suckers there money will I check to make sure they don’t own me any money before I send them a check. This is B.S I can’t beleive they can get away with such crap.

  17. franz dibbler on Mon, 22nd Feb 2010 10:55 am 

    I was notified that there was an error on my form but it *increased* my refund by $800. Reference number 9022. I suspect it has something to do with making work pay since it is a nice even number. Problem is my kids need the 1040 forms for financial aid and I can’t get through to make sure. The refund has already been processed and in my bank account.

  18. michelle on Tue, 2nd Mar 2010 4:01 pm 

    my return was processed thru a cpa that i have been useing for ten years. i have been married up until last year, this is the first year i am filing head of house with eic. my error code came back 1341. supposed tax liabaility on another account, well i dont have naother account nor does my ex, he did not claim our daughter so i dont know what the hold up is. no one at the irs seems to know what is going on either, they said a two month delay in processing refund. i also had the irs look to make sure there was no money owed anywhere and no rulings against my refund, and she said there is nothing. so she doesnt know why it produced that code or why they are keeping my reufnd, i hate the government!

  19. Elizabeth on Wed, 3rd Mar 2010 7:00 am 

    I received a letter saying that the IRS was holding my refund for one or more of four reasons. Looks like they are verifying my income and withholding amounts. My questions is where is the code on this letter or is there a code on these letters? I see a a number of 008722 in small print on the right side of the letter.

  20. AMV on Mon, 15th Mar 2010 10:17 am 

    Big hung — we are in the same boat. The $$ I am expecting is becoming ever more important to stay afloat. And forget NYS, they never sent me my refund for 2007 and I am ready to kiss 2008′s good-bye — their response is, when we have money, we will send out refunds.

    No wonder people are outraged.

  21. meghan on Tue, 16th Mar 2010 7:08 pm 

    ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS EFF U CEE KAY THE IRS…THIS IS ASHAME..THE ECONOMY SUCKS AND PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THEIR RETURN TO GIVE THEM AN EXTRA BOOST AND THIS IS THE STUNT THEY PULL..I FOR ONE AM EXTREMELY PISSED..I AM ON THE VERGE OF DROPPING OUT OF SCHOOL BECAUSE I HAVE NO TRANSPORTATION AND WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO MY REFUND TO GET A CAR..I FILED ON JAN 25TH BUT COULDN’T FILE E-FILE BECAUSE I HAVE THE 8000 DOLLAR TAX CREDIT FOR BEING A FIRST TIME HOME BUYER..I CHECKED THE WEBSITE TO SEE WHEN I WOULD GET MY RETURN, IT SAID MARCH 30TH, CHECKED AGAIN A COUPLE WKS LATER THEN IT SAID APRIL 6TH, CHECKED TODAY AND IT SAID APRIL 20TH..ARE U KIDDING ME!!!…THIS IS INSANE..THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!!!

  22. I hate you IRS on Wed, 17th Mar 2010 1:28 pm 

    This is such bull#### 1301 after they don’t want to dd my loop! This makes me want to say f*** working, last time I check drug dealers and murders don’t have to pay taxes!!

  23. JRM7 on Wed, 24th Mar 2010 8:27 am 

    Listen to this. In 2007 I paid $7,000 at year end. About 2 months later they sent me $3,450 back saying I had over paid. I cashed the check and paid off all my credit cards. It was awesome. Then I got an erroneous refund letter stating that I owed them that $3,450 because they didn’t mean to send it to me. Well I didn’t have the money so I got on a payment plan. I recieved a letter saying I was paid off about 2 years later after I made many payments. Then I filed this year, only to find out they made a mistake and I owed them $320 that would be deducted from this years refund. 2 weeks later I called and that $320 changed to $575. It’s been 45 days since I filed this year and today they told me I might not get anything for another 60 days. The biggest crooks in the country reside in D.C.

  24. might as well work as an immigrant on Thu, 25th Mar 2010 8:01 pm 

    economy stimulus my ass! the only thing being stimulated is the freaking IRS. Aren’t we supposed to be moving foward in time not backwards.I efiled for one week and i was expected to receive my very needed money on feb.16th and a 1301 code saying its being processed.I have been calling every week and every week its a different story. So much for the American dream, might as well work as an illegal alien and screw the irs, if i save 40 dollars bi weekly as an illegal in a year I’ll probably have more than what the irs gives me.

  25. Jacqueline on Mon, 19th Apr 2010 1:20 pm 

    I mail my return on march 26, 2010 and irs have received it. they told me that I will be getting my refund on may, 11.2010 now they have change it to may, 18, 2010. but they told me on the phone that now I have been selected for review so what does that mean. I am filing for the 2008 first-time home buyer tax credit. will someone please tell me what they will ask me to send in once I receive the letter.

  26. Sun on Thu, 22nd Apr 2010 11:03 am 

    Feb 4 – I mailed mine
    Feb. 12 – IRS received it
    Apr. 13 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on
    Apr. 27 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on
    May 11 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on

    WTF, IRS kept delaying my refund without any explanation.
    BTW, my return includes first time home buyer and energy credits.

  27. Mary N on Thu, 22nd Apr 2010 12:05 pm 

    I have never spoken to an IRS agent that was helpful. Each time I get off the phone talking with them, I feel like I was talking to a person who did not give a shit. People make mistakes. We are all not cheats. I would not work for the I>R>S.
    Would consider selling my soul to the devil first. Some people have done this.

  28. tlc on Mon, 26th Apr 2010 9:11 am 

    Add me to the list of disgruntled taxpayers. Expecting an $8000 refund here. Have the name of the employee who signed for my return in Austin Texas IRS Service center on Feb 4th. They didn’t enter it into the system until March 10th. They have NO explanation for why my refund lay in limbo for a month before being entered into the system after it was received. Then a few weeks later they put up on the status site that it was being processed, and my refund would be direct deposited on April 20th. Well, it wasn’t. I called to ask questions. THey claimed there was no w2 form to verify something, and said I’d be getting a letter. I know better. w2 form WAS sent with return, but I complied with the request and sent ANOTHER copy of the w2 they wanted. WHich they SIGNED for on April 15th. (I have the return receipt card with signature AGAIN) THen they changed it on the website and gave a reference number and a different number to call. Now they are telling me there is NO RECORD of any correspondence, and they have not received the info they requested. Hello…. I’m holding a card here with the employees name who got the mail. WHERE is my information? Apparently it’s going to lay there a while longer while someone sits on it. I was told they can do NOTHING else until it’s entered into the computer system as being received. Even though I have the receipt showing it’s there. I was told that whenever the day is that it’s’ officially entered into the computer… it could be as long as another 8 weeks. SO who knows… they are just apparently screwing around with everyone’s refunds this year–and apparently there’s nothing we can do to change that.

  29. Sun on Tue, 27th Apr 2010 9:43 am 

    Now IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on June 1, 2010. WTH

  30. Alex A on Wed, 28th Apr 2010 5:18 am 

    Same boat as the last guy. My refund was easy. only $1100+ Filed through Turbo Tax. Normally I get my Fed first then the state. I E-filed on the 14th. As far as Turbo Tax shows the filing was accepted and successful. I got NJ State already and Fed was set for April 23rd, then 27th, now the 11th of may. What are they doing? I think they must be taking the tax return money and just having a big party over there or something.

  31. Sue on Wed, 28th Apr 2010 8:14 pm 

    Have been given 5 different dates of when to expect refund pending no errors. Then low and behold get the famous code “1301″ called IRS on hold for 30 minutes while trying to teach kindergarten, did this 2 times, said nothing was wrong. Check today and they say my check of $320 will be deposited on 5/30/10 for $320, no first time home buyer credit given, then says to call with new code of 9021. Not married, bought new home for first time, it’s about time we as a nation revolt against the government. They take our money give it to degenerates and illegals and conmtinue to put us in the poor house to pay for all the free programs for everyone else. This home buying credit was the biggest scam! We have reached socialism my fellow Americans.

  32. Francine on Thu, 29th Apr 2010 10:43 am 

    same thing happened to us we bought a home and could not fild electronically had to mail in supposed to recieve direct deposit on March 30th March 20 recieved a letter they needed information sent it in certified mail return receipt they recieved it on march 30th but they tell me over the phone they never recieved it so now i’m no where today was told that we have to wait for them to call us or they will get an advocate to work on our behalf for us to obtain our refund with home buyers credit we are absolutely no where no refund nothing only to wait longer I call everyday and everyone tells me something different anyone have any ideas ?

  33. Sharon on Thu, 29th Apr 2010 10:34 pm 

    Yea, I brought my home in 2009, file my taxes with a experience accountant, she told me to give her all the information (I Did) I mail my return back in Feb,the IRS kept delaying me also, now they rejected the $8000 credit saying I will get a letter saying why????? This is not fair.

  34. Christi on Fri, 30th Apr 2010 5:33 pm 

    Could someone please explain to me in detail what reference code 8001 means?

  35. Bill on Fri, 30th Apr 2010 7:55 pm 

    I have issues this year. Getting $8000.00 first time home buyers credit. Received 2976.11 in my bank today out of 10823. Looked on the website and saw there is a reference number 9021 and to wait for a letter dated May 10. I will call Monday to find out what is going on and ask why I am being screwed out of a tax credit that i am legitimate for.

  36. Sun on Mon, 3rd May 2010 10:39 am 

    Now IRS site shows ‘Please mention reference number 1301 to the IRS Customer Service Representative.’ This is ridiculous.

    “Now IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on June 1, 2010. WTH
    “Feb 4 – I mailed mine
    Feb. 12 – IRS received it
    Apr. 13 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on
    Apr. 27 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on
    May 11 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on
    May 18 – IRS site shows I will be getting my refund on

    WTF, IRS kept delaying my refund without any explanation.
    BTW, my return includes first time home buyer and energy credits.””

  37. Sun on Tue, 4th May 2010 10:07 am 

    I called IRS today.

    The person from IRS told me IRS found a problem on my return and solved on April 21. I asked what problem was found on my return. The answer is IRS doesn’t disclose the information found on my return. What??? So, I asked how much I can get. He refused to give the amount. ??? I haven’t received any letter from IRS, so then IRS found the problem and corrected themselves.

    Since my tax return was cleared on April 21, I was told I should be able to get 4-6 weeks from April 21.

    WELL MY REFUND WAS DELAYED TWO WEEKS AND THE I CHECKED THE SITE ON WEDNESDAY AND IT SAID THAT IT WOULD BE DIRECT DEPOSITED ON FRIDAY THE 7TH, WELL I CHECKED IT THIS MORNING AND NOW ITS SAYING IT GOT A REFERENCE CODE 1221 WHICH MEANS IT HAS BEEN PULLED BACK FOR REVIEW……7 CYCLES WTF??????????????? DO ANYONE KNOW WHATS GOING ON BECAUSE THIS IS RIDDICULOUS!!!!

  41. Jessica on Thu, 6th May 2010 9:22 am 

    Same BS here! filed the last week in January. Had to mail file for home buyer credit. Was supposed to have taxes 4-13-10. Two weeks before that date, the date was changed to 5-4-10. on Monday (5-3-10) no more date listed only telling me to call the number and give the reference code 1301! talked to tax advocate monday since IRS is about useless. was supposed to hear from advocate this morning and didnt. called them and they didnt even put it through for an advocate to call me. Amazing if you owe them they all but will take your first born from you but god forbid they owe you and stick to their own guidelines of when you should receive your taxes back. They cant even give me a reason for why it is delayed or even when to expect my return. EXTREMELY IRRITATED and the stupid advocate says being behind on mortgage and bills is not a financial hardship there for they wont get things done quicker. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????

  42. Chris on Thu, 6th May 2010 10:29 am 

    I have used the same CPA for many years and was told I needed to mail in my refund and not efile which I did Feb 16th. Was told it will only take about 3 weeks as The IRS needs to physically review every return from people that are first time home buyers which I am. I checked the IRS web site. Refund received refund Feb 20. Refund should arrive march 30, Then April 10, then April 20, then May 5th. On April 30th I got my income tax refund minus the $8.00 first time home buyer refund and was told they made an adjustment to my refund. Serious an $8000.00 adjustment? I now have to now wait until March 10th to find out what adjustments were made or I can call the IRS directly. After reading the other comments here I see that is a futile effort. I was told by someone else that I know in that the IRS agents now get a commission on top of their salary for all the money they save the government, So they are really looking hard at every refund and taking there sweet ass time about it. My thinking is if they refuse the refunds they then get the commission which I am guessing would be my $8000. Pretty sweet gig these IRS agents have now and they can do the run around for ever and only make more money in the process. So what incentive do they have for those us and helping us. The stimulas package is really starting to hurt every time I sit down.

  43. becki on Tue, 11th May 2010 3:08 pm 

    we filed in feb. hoping to get the new home tax rebate. obama and the government have been deceptive. we just keep getting the runaround. we had to refile a the hud 0 1 form, they wanted it faxed so we did. we called the next day to make sure they got the fax anf we were told that they could not give us that information!! HUH?!?! we have been talking with the irs twice a week and just keep getting “IT’S BEING PROCESSED”. what does that mean? is the check being processed? “WE CAN’T TELL YOU THAT’. !!HUH?!?! it is our taxes we are inquiring about, not my neighbors. obama made another promise to the tax paying people and seems like he spoke too soon. why do we have to wait so long for our hard work monies, but the irs will NOT wait for theirs? do we get interest paid back to us? how long until the next election?

  44. Bill on Wed, 12th May 2010 7:01 pm 

    I mailed return on March 15th four weeks passes and I receive a 4612 letter on April 12th from the IRS stating they need copy of W2 to verify EIC I have my work fax a copy IRS rep says they have it and are good. The where’s my refund page still shows no set date for my return and when I call they say it is still being processed any advice on how much longer I am going to have to wait.

  45. Alana on Thu, 13th May 2010 5:47 am 

    We’ve also been getting the same runaround. Filed by mail on February 4th. Got a letter from the IRS with just the HUD-1 form enclosed along with a 1040X, telling us to file an amended return. WTF? We filed the entire thing at once. Sent in an entire new return, weeks later we get yet another letter asking us for the HUD-1 form. WTF??? So we sent that in, and then decided to get a taxpayer advocate after talking to our tax preparer. As of this morning, I am told we have now been flagged because of my name change. We got married in December and I changed my name. It also changed three years ago but I’ve filed since then with no problems. They now want my birth certificate and a copy of my SS card and are saying even if I provide those today, no refund will be issued until June 28th EARLIEST!

    We are in desperate need of this money. I would have rather just received the refund without the FTHB credit, that would at least get us through the summer. I lost my job in February and was planning on staying home with my kids this summer while I got a real estate career started. I passed the real estate course and the state test but have no money for the startup fees (over $1000) to actually get started, so we’re screwed. It’s either pay $3000 for daycare over the summer or I stay home. Either way, without this refund, we are just FUBAR.

    This is insane! Does the government realize how bad they are screwing with our lives, our homes and our children with all this?

  46. Alana on Thu, 13th May 2010 5:50 am 

    After reading all the other comments on this page it makes me wonder… Can you file a class action lawsuit against the IRS?

  47. Alana on Thu, 13th May 2010 8:33 am 

    I’m not messing around with this anymore. I called my congressman this morning and was informed that they have received many complaints about this. His office emailed me a privacy release form so they can contact the IRS on my behalf and get this straightened out. I spent all morning emailing copies of a lot of other documentation as well, but if pull from a congressman with a lot of pissed off constituents gets the job done, well worth it!

    I suggest that anyone else getting the runaround for months like we have do the same. I will post the outcome when we get there.

  48. Wilder Boar on Fri, 14th May 2010 12:13 am 

    The IRS performance is worse-slower in 2010 in getting the check(refund, rebate) to the public; slowest in over 40 years I KNOW, and hear from others. For every discrepency even about your return due to mistakes the IRS makes, they deem themselves entitled to take 30 extra days for resolution! and they may have send a threatening letter to the taxpayer that if they don’t hear from the taxpayer(NO time, NO date by mentioned in that letter!) they can reduce the amount of rebate/refund! This is a direct effort to reduce us poverty level income,disabled taxpeyers(of which I am one, under extreme duress needing MY first home buyers rebate!).
    They were never experts on purchases of real estate(first homebuyers rebate stimulus now ended), and it sure shows.They don’t have the capability of recognizing a well-documented transaction that is between a seller and buyer that is not HUD, not on a real estate brokers contract-even when that purchase has more thorough documentation and the sale documents sent to the IRS include REGISTRATION of the purchase(sale) with the municipality/county. Furthermore, they incessantly won’t recognize the address of the property you in 2009 as your residence and mailing address as another one of their stall tricks.
    I can only conclude that with all the bailouts the FED GOV has handed out, and now bailing out GREECE(just the beginning) the IRS does NOT have the MONEY to rebate/refund individual taxpapers.They sure have it for all those never-ending bank, big business, foreign nation, industry giants bailouts!

  49. Wilder Boar on Fri, 14th May 2010 12:26 am 

    I am going to do the same that Alana did, and I do write my Congressmen in Arizona on important topics.They will send me a release form, all promptly returned to them.
    And I always post the ‘news’of my grievance(as in this dire situation)nationwide on as many sites as possible.Taxpayers should know how the IRS, the FED GOV is not working for them and why our current DC is not transparent. Campaign promises BROKEN, NOT KEPT. November, 2010 and 2012 are not that far off.

  50. sssyy on Fri, 14th May 2010 5:31 am 

    I filed my federal tax return on Feb 14th. Around March 28th, I found in the IRS website that I will be receiving the return on April 6th. I am in graduate school and already in credit card debt. My cards are getting maxed out. So, I was a bit happy. Then, I received a letter stating that they need signature proofs. My wife is in another state. I got her signature and send the letter back to IRS. Now, in the website, there is no update for almost 1 and a half month. I called the IRS 2-3 times during this month and they always say that it is being processed. Now, it is again 4 weeks after they received the signature proofs. I don’t know when I will get my payment. I am graduating in May 21st and now I am already thinking about getting some payday loan even for walk in. The Ph.D. regalia rent cost about $180 (a case of ripping from the University). I also want to mention that I am frantically looking for a job or post doc. After 100s of applications, I am still not getting any response. In addition, the attitude of IRS is equally disturbing.

  51. Wilder Boar on Sat, 15th May 2010 3:40 am 

    Regarding a post by “Chris”, I don’t know if IRS agents are actually paid commissions for saving the government money.But there is probably some kind of monetary/benefit reward they are receiving for saving the money,especially on the backs of the lowest income taxpayer-filers. They did send me (in print) a threat that they would start reducing the amount of my FHBR rebate(no date time limits given)if I didn’t reply to them.Of COURSE,I called them, AGAIN.All THEY have done is NOTHING,repeatedly making errors and stalling on cutting my rebate check to me on a simple, low flat income(SSA) return. My thinking is they figure they can get away with not paying(low income persons thought to be easier target victims they don’t have to pay-instructions to not pay those people from the Federal Government direct)low income filers and hope to escape lawsuits against the IRS, it’s agents. Never, it won’t work, not if I get a free tax attorney to recover plus damages for me and perhaps one that will file class action,also. I don’t mind indulging at all in what is MINE,NOT their’s. Obviously the Federal Government is BROKE and wants more bailout money for other purposes. It sure isn’t working for income tax/FHBR people like me!
    The IRS has it’s own INTERNAL ‘rules’ to which it subjects taxpayers, unknowingly. You may compare this to the old TV skits with “Geraldine” as the arrogant phone company lady at the other end of the line. But in the case of taxpayer vs. IRS, not humorous.
    I also think the IRS is way long overdue for reform of the principles, laws under which it should be SERVING the American taxpayer/filer,NOT serving the Federal Government.Of course that is not going to happen until there is tort reform.Perhaps another Presidential Administration in some future far off time, not now.
    I am advising to every taxpayer owed money back by the IRS, to take the same to task, early on, as soon as you know they are overdue and about to spring nasty internal rules on you. And to post all over the internet the flagrant greed of the IRS and why.

  52. Maria on Tue, 18th May 2010 11:36 am 

    Feb 9, 2010, we filed our First-Time home buyer’s credit and sent it overnight to IRS. It took them until May 23, 2010 to get us ONLY the refund amount of $481. NOT the $8,000 additional money due to us.

    They sent us a letter stating that we owned a prior home. We have appealed this decision and resent our taxes back to Austin. We have NEVER owned a home before. Even when the IRS gal went back 10 years she even says, there is no mortgage anywhere on anything.

    So why the delay. We need our money!

  53. FED UP! on Wed, 19th May 2010 7:14 am 

    This is happening to me too. After about two months, the damn IRS dummies realized they needed my 1099 which my equally stupid tax preparer didn’t attach. I got a letter from those thieves at the IRS about this. I SENT those pieces of crap what they wanted that same day. I STILL am getting the same damn processing message! Can I sue them because they just REFUSE to send me my money? I don’t even feel like filing taxes next year if they pull this garbage!

  54. Ellen on Wed, 19th May 2010 4:08 pm 

    My tax return was mailed 2/15/10. I’m expecting a large refund due to the homebuyer’s credit. 4/22/10 I received a letter from IRS asking for documentation of the amount of my withholding (not that they already have that information in their computer or anything). My accountant responded within days. Today is 5/19/10. I just called them. Told to wait 6-8 weeks from when we responded to their request. This is just a cash flow game. The gov’t spent the money bailing out the auto industry and shoring up Wall St. Those of us who have been out of work for almost a year and who REALLY need the refund are getting jerked around. Everyone should vote against incumbents in every election going forward to get rid of the morons in Washington and restore some common sense and decency!

  55. Pissed off man on Thu, 20th May 2010 1:41 am 

    WTF is going on? They say one thing and do another. Oh well we should be able to charge interest for waiting.

  56. Evie on Thu, 20th May 2010 6:14 am 

    Same problem here. Homebuyer’s tax credit…mailed return in Feb. Got a letter the week I should’ve received deposit saying they did not have my “original signature” on the return. Which is BS. After trying to fax them for 2 days, mailed in the form, which as of last week they say they have not received. I was still supposed to get my deposit May 18…NOT. Called back and new person said the other person didn’t know what they were talking about. Getting ready to call my congressman…

  57. R. M. on Sat, 22nd May 2010 2:58 pm 

    We sent our paper work in back in Feb and it is for a large sum as well. There was a date in the system at one point for us to receive it at the end of April that day came and went. So we contacted them, the next thing you knew that date was not in the system anymore, from reading the rest of the blogs, and what I have been saying is I think they are just finding reason to prolong paying out what is rightfully ours. Sure when we owe them it is now, but when it is time to pay the public it is when they get good ready. Yes when you talk to someone on the customer service line they are no help, it should be renamed the dumb line.

  58. no tax rep on Wed, 2nd Jun 2010 2:49 am 

    If you filed with the First-Time Homebuyer Credit (FTHBC), expect delays in receiving the $8,000. IRS reports an overwhelming amount of fraudulent claims filed. All FTHBCs are under intense scrutiny! Be prepared to invite your IRS agent over for tea and crumpets. This is what may be required to prove your purchase!!!

  59. tamikio on Thu, 3rd Jun 2010 12:03 pm 

    i think thereb playing with or heads i filed mine feb, 9 ,and i keep calling and all they can say they working on it and i do think it should b something for us to do to get or taXES cause this crazy have to call them every week and or paper been sitting on the same desk for o5 months now thats crazy

  60. tamikio on Thu, 3rd Jun 2010 12:05 pm 

    i just want to know new homeowners who got thers yet i havnt seen no body got there refund yet on new home owners so i wounder or we gone to get one really ////

  61. Toni on Thu, 3rd Jun 2010 3:52 pm 

    Thank you Alana for your information and recommendation to contact my Congressman. I did just that and spoke with the Tax Advocate person in the office. They are going to send me a consent form to fill out so they may act on my behalf, and then contact the IRS to get some information on when the return will be sent. I understand that the IRS is bogged down and probably should have planned more wisely for the influx of rebate returns, however, I don’t accept a vauge response that says nothing, not to mention a return timeframe that keeps getting longer and longer (ie from 6-8 weeks to 8-12). I filed my taxes on time AND bought a home to help stimulate the economy. I expect from the IRS what they demand of us – timeliness.

  62. oscar p on Fri, 4th Jun 2010 8:21 am 

    Just received my tax refund minus the 8k first time home buyer credit!!! currently on hold with the IRS, been on hold for quite awhile while they “check” my file. I wonder what excuse they will give me

  63. oscar p on Fri, 4th Jun 2010 8:27 am 

    I was DENIED the FTHB 8k..What a JOKE!!! like another person on this forum said, I will send an invite for Tea and crumpets. I was told I would receive a letter June 14th and I should call back and address my concerns then, there might still be a chance to get the fthbc, I would just have to send all the paperwork for a 3rd TIME!! Screw u IRS!!!!

  64. Eve on Fri, 4th Jun 2010 9:41 am 

    Look, I am just like you guys, I’m expecting about $14,000 from the IRS. I filed my taxes and mailed it February 22, IRS told me I will be getting my refund May 4th. My husband told me that he has a feeling that we won’t be getting it. After checking my bank account and hoping that my refund would be there, I got NOTHING, I called IRS, they told me that they could not find my me or my social security number doesn’t match or I don’t exist, and said that they will be needing more information from me and they will be sending me the form within 2 weeks. So, I waited and still waiting and finally received the form, I immdiately took it back to Jackson Hewitt and they immediately contacted IRS and fax what the need from me. The form said that I will be getting my refund 6 more weeks after I mailed or fax the form. It’s been 4 weeks now I still waiting for my money. Today, my husband told me that HEARD THE NEWS OF THE RADIO THAT THE IRS IS BROKE OR THEY HAD A CASH FLOW PROBLEM AND THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT,WAITING FOR NOTHING and you know what, when you call them the are the RUDEST people in the WORLD, they are so rude and mean and just not very pleasant to talk too. THEY SAID WE WILL BE GETTING OUR REFUND IN THE END OF JUNE!!! You know, it’s not H&R Block, or Jackson Hewitt’s fault, this is the BULLSHIT from the IRS. Yes, I hate IRS and I really wish I don’t have to pay them 20% of my income because to me, they are bunches of CROOKS. THEY ARE BROKE AND THEY DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY US AND I AM VERY FRUSTRATED!!!
    GOOD LUCK TO US ALL AND GOD BLESS IRS. I REALLY HATE THEM!

  65. JHolliday on Tue, 8th Jun 2010 6:26 am 

    I am sickened reading the above posts. Filed my tax return on April 15, 2009 by mail. IRS required mail due to our receiving the long-time resident status for the $6,500 existing homeowner credit for purchasing a new home before April 20, 2010. IRS sent a form stating they needed a copy of my HUD-1 and form 5405. Those forms were attached to everything else in my return. I stapled everything together just so they would not lose all the paperwork! Between the new home credits and having 3 college students last year, we are due a large refund. The current administration in Washington DC promised these new credits to “stimulate the economy”. Now apparently they cannot pay what they promised! I sent copies of the purported missing documents two weeks ago and the IRS states they still haven’t received them. It ususally takes one business day for my mail to reach Austin, TX where my return was sent. Based on all the blogs above, I suppose I am in for a L-O-N-G wait.

  66. JF on Tue, 8th Jun 2010 8:19 am 

    Similar situation. Qualify for $8,000 FTHB credit.

    March 27 – Submitted return (prepared by tax professional)

    April 31 – Letter from IRS arrives acknowledging receipt of return, but we need to resubmit…actual return can’t be located.

    May 3 – Complete return resubmitted and sent via UPS. Received and signed for on May 6. Return now expected on June 8.

    June 7 – Letter from IRS arrives stating they need ANOTHER copy of HUD-1/Settlement statement. This is now the third time this has been submitted.

    What is the issue?? Why does it take the IRS 4 weeks to open a piece of mail and respond?? Return now expected on July 13.

    Have tried several phone numbers and can’t get through to a human voice. Every number I try is a recorded message with the same nonsense that is of no help. This is beyond ridiculous and very frustrating. Considering contacting my congressman, but who knows how long it will take him to respond!

  67. connie on Fri, 11th Jun 2010 10:55 am 

    I e filed in march told it was being reviewed it would be 30 days then 45 days now they say they got my extra documentation 4/02/2010 and they are just now getting to aprils wow if i owed them they be all over me and i am just supposed to sit and wait we will be homeless bbefore ever seeing any i am afraid.

  68. sz on Fri, 11th Jun 2010 12:39 pm 

    Ha! I got code 8001. when I called they said my return was in the corrections unit because of error in calculating capital gains. I said I didn’t even REPORT / HAVE any capital gains! Just a simple straight forward return.. No FTHBC either. Fishy if you ask me!

  69. Another FTHB on Mon, 14th Jun 2010 9:17 am 

    Has anybody received there FTHB tax credit recently? Just curious if they’re paying out at all. Also, is there any way we can stick it to the IRS and make sure this doenst happen again? Maybe by claiming the max exemptions on our w-4′s?

    [Signed] Tax noob

  70. Stacy on Tue, 15th Jun 2010 1:37 am 

    We filed on 2/15 for our FTHB credit plus more because we have 4 children (3 under the age of 2-infant twins and an almost 2 year old). I am currently a stay at home mom because the cost of day care would be out of this world for 3 little ones. We are barely making ends meet and were counting on that date of April 20 to get our tax return. That day came and went… 2 weeks later we got a letter stating they needed our 1099′s (which I know was attached to the original filing). I faxed the information over immediately. I tried calling every week to verify receipt of the forms. No one could tell me anything except I need to wait 6-8 weeks for processing. When June hit, I started calling twice a week and for 3 weeks, I have been given a different time line, excuse and story by all their stupid irs agents. I finally went to a tax advocate and that person was not helpful either. I have now been told the earliest we will receive our money will be end of July. The tax advocate told us that our tax return has been denied, but the IRS can’t verify that yet with me. No one knows their @$$ from a hole in the ground. We did our part to purchase a home, stimulate the economy, take care of OUR children and NOT use welfare… but in the meantime, we can’t meet our bills and paying our mortgage on our new home is difficult. We can’t afford oil in our house for warm water, can’t pay our infant son’s high medical bills for emergency surgery required to keep him alive after he was born…we are so screwed b/c of these lying idiots. It is MY money and I want it to earn interest for MYSELF, not the freaking government keeping it as long as they can to earn interest. If we owed them money, I’d be in jail by now for prolonging payment. We contacted our congressman and we are awaiting a reply. Something has to be done!!!!

  71. Kristi Boulware on Tue, 15th Jun 2010 11:46 am 

    My return was accepted by IRS on 1/11/10 and I have still NOT received my refund. It has been 22 weeks. I have never once received a letter or anything requesting more information. I have called several times being told it’s being processed. Now the “where’s your refund” page tells me they can’t find my return. So I call again, on hold off and on for an HOUR and I’m told she thinks it is a system issue holding up my return. So she is sending me to an advocate. When I called 5 weeks ago they were sending it to be expedited!! So the advocate has 7 business days to contact me or I call back she said. I am so frustrated! Yes my refund is larger than normal because I have a home business with deduction plus I moved and have FHB credit! IRS requires interest to be paid when you don’t pay them immediately. So I will be expecting interest paid on mine to me as well.

  72. Stacy on Tue, 15th Jun 2010 5:02 pm 

    Oh, and when we call our tax advocate (because the IRS claims they can’t give us any information we have to go through our tax advocate)…. our advocate doesn’t return phone calls.

  73. Wilder Boar on Sun, 20th Jun 2010 1:50 am 

    I feel sorry for Stacy and all of us. No trust in current Federal Goverment, which is behaving more like a Ferrel Gato who ate all us ‘mice’. November will make a difference, make our day. I’m not likening to the IRS lies.
    Now comes the IRS demanding personal information of me, in order to process my simplest return with first time home buyers credit WAY overdue me since I filed on March 14. AFTER I get my refund, no matter how long it takes or what I engage in to get it, I am CLOSING my checking account, changing/eliminating as much personal information on registries of all sorts, that I can, intentionally. It’s none of their business and furthermore NOT part of the rebate conditions put forth. The IRS has become ‘dirty’, fraudulent in their efforts(as mandated by Obama) to suppress and deny buyers that rebate! They can claim taking your return through “eight cycles”(NOT known to the individual taxpayer, but only IRS internal rules THEY engage with NO definition nor time frame of what a cycle is and then ‘legitimize’ their refusal to give the individual their DUE refund!).This is the kind of practice that makes extra ‘pin money’ for these incompetent greedy agents, but further buries the individual.Yes, time for a REAL CHANGE at the head of all helms.
    I just want that incompetency out of the current Administration in DC and the clowns fired from the IRS with TOTAL overhaul and tort reform directed at the IRS. And I demand my refund. IRS CRIME will reverberate now, long term-damaging the strong arm tactic reputation of this Administration.

  74. Wilder Boar on Sun, 20th Jun 2010 1:55 am 

    I have talked to quite a few individuals who filed for the IRS First Time Homebuyers Credit and NONE of them got it! IRS=more like IRA! These tax rebate filers are madder than hell, like me and others here.

  75. MJ on Tue, 22nd Jun 2010 7:47 pm 

    I filed my simplest Tax return with First time home buyer credit on April 15, 2010. My refund was only for $8000 (First Time Home Buyer).
    As of today, I have not got refund. My expected refund dates have been pushed three times.

    Please let me know if anyone got First time home buyer refund.

  76. MJ on Tue, 22nd Jun 2010 7:49 pm 

    HAS ANYONE GOT FIRST TIME HOME BUYER CREDIT REFUND FROM IRS FOR THE YEAR 2009?

  77. RubberChickenWho on Wed, 23rd Jun 2010 10:27 am 

    The IRS *claimed* we had NOT signed our income tax return to delay us beyond their first predicted arrival date of June 8. Unfortunately for them, I waited till 9 pm on the night of April 15 for my husband to come sign the forms so I could mail them! Unfortunately for us, we simply printed the forms at a neighbor’s house from TurboTax cuz our printer was dead. We have no proof they lied. Typically I photocopy the completed forms. Word to the wise PHOTOCOPY your completed docs even if you use software or an online vender!

    Now they are giving us no date…..just “a couple more weeks” when I called.

    We only filed as late as we did because my husband’s boss drug his butt on an amended W-2 because he is clergy/chaplain and has a write-off for housing expenses. That also prevented us from e-filing!

    I had to search long and hard just to find ANY complaints about 2009 tax refunds. Hmmmm. Seems Google is putting whiners below the fold on page 50 so to speak. Nice to have friends in the print media AND the internet.

    I sent this thread and my issue to Laura, Rush, M Malkin, Glenn, Rep M Bauchmann (a tax attorney) and anyone I can think of as all those folks would be unaware of the issue as they make the big bucks and do not get a return. I hope they give it some time and research and airtime and get this stuff exposed. Me thinks someone has a cashflow issue.

    Furthermore, we had to EITHER Fax OR Snail-Mail our required signatures. So, of course, we Faxed and crossed our fingers. Faxie said “Completed” or “Successful Transmition” or whatever it likes to say. They said DON’T CYA and send it both ways or you (wait for it) *will experience delays”. HA! So, I call like a week later (last week) and they say, “We CAN’T tell you if it was received….but it is being processed and it will be a *couple* more weeks.” A Couple Eight? A COUPLE Twelve? A Couple Million? Nice. I heart the governemnt. Especially corrupt government with cash flow issues. But you know, those Dems HEART poor people and that’s all that counts (so say lefty Christians!).

    Grrrrr. Did I say I am hacked off?

    One Last, Last Post:
    I want to know if there is a common thread with all those experiencing delays, such as:

    1. All have LARGE refunds (several thousand dollars)
    2. All GOP or voted (even if begrudgingly) for McCain
    3. All went to a “T” Party Demo
    4. All make our politics know on FB or Twitter
    5. Something Else I haven’t thought of….

    H8 to sound paranoid, but I have filed my taxes for some 25 years and have NEVER waited more than 4-6 weeks TOPS no matter how late I filed or how much I was getting.

    I am still waiting for my 2009 income tax return 10 weeks and counting. From what others are saying here, I haven’t seen anything yet. I told my dh yesterday, “I think they are hoping we just forget about it!”

    Not a chance.

    Just called the irs for the third time this week. On the call today I was told that it would now be 12 weeks instead of 4-6 to process my return. I originally filed in Feb., but the schedules were left out. It took them almost 3 months to tell me they needed 4 additional pieces of paper. I mailed them back in May and now I have to wait 12 weeks from the beginning of May for my refund.

    Did you know that irs employees must file their return or they can be fired!! This is what I was told by the agent after I asked her if she received her return. Isn’t that interesting?

    I find that I need to do deep breathing exercises to stave off a migraine about this situation. I need my money and I know you all needs your. I’m feeling like our country is bent on corruption of the incurrable kind. Then I came across this site and I have to say that I was able to smile and chuckle about my situation listening to other people vent. So glad to know I’m not alone in my frustration. (sigh)

  82. Wilder Boar on Fri, 25th Jun 2010 2:57 am 

    The TAS IRS agent I was assigned will not even return my phone calls of the past three days. I am concerned, only because I have read and heard some negative results of using a TAS IRS agent. I read that they don’t even perform for the consumer.
    That is our current government.
    I am far from being done, going after my rebate-refund on this first time homeowners issue.And I wish the news on TV would cease reporting how good a program it is, when most I know have not received their just do from it. I intend to contact the news networks, commentators.

  83. anthony on Fri, 25th Jun 2010 11:20 am 

    I got the same thing everyone is getting. I filed Mar 3. On get refund status site, it said “will be deposited Apr 29. Apr 27 get letter saying, “We need HUD papers” I tried to fax. No go. 15 times, no transmission. I had to mail. Sent mail May 1st. Called 3 times. Big nothing runaround. Site says “We have received your tax return and it is being processed” This is JUN 25th now! I wish I filed normal, then sent amended for FHA later. I would at least have gotten my original refund. I need my $ just like everyone else. They didn’t complain or have to wait when I paid them 26K in 2009. This is unreal.

  84. SnowH on Sat, 26th Jun 2010 8:09 am 

    I filed First-Time Homebuyers Credit (Jan. 2010).
    As of today (Jun 26, 2010), I’m still going through the same frustrations as what others here are going through, but I’d like to respond to one comment as follows:

    I (my accountant) filed everything correctly, but I still received a letter from IRS in May — requesting me to submit W-2. The thing is I’m self-employed (the file says so, stupid). Getting to the point, the issue was that the IRS reviewer mistook my Estimate Payment Amount (paid in full) with Withheld Amount. How stupid is that?

    What is more amazing about IRS is that there is no apology or prioritizing my file even when it is their mistake.

    Still, I waited for another 6 weeks, and today I received another letter stating that IRS is conducting a “THOROUGH investigation” and I need to wait another 45 days before I MAY contact them.

    What has it been doing for the first 5 months? What does IRS mean by I “MAY” contact them? Who do you think they are? I should be able to contact them anytime I want! And they ARE obligated to give me a useful answer right away. After all, aren’t we paying their salaries? Aren’t we their customers? They are the ones who owe us money, so any civilized person with a rational mind would think they should be at least paying us an interest for the money they owe us? (especially when the delay is due to their error?!)

    IRS should give a “Common Sense Test” (and an “English Reading Skill Test”) to their recruits before hiring them.

  85. Wilder Boar on Sun, 27th Jun 2010 9:21 am 

    for Oscar p and others. The IRS has an interior rule that if they take your return showing a rebate through eight cycles(like eight rejections) they can negate sending you a refund at all.
    This is very dangerous to the tax filer seeking their just rebate, because the IRS would prefer taking a filer through all eight cycles(or rejections) as there is monetary reward attached to the IRS agent(s) for refusal decision to not pay a tax filer. Bribery?
    Additionally harmful to us tax filers is the now broad IRS license to reject returns, treating all and any as fraud(but never THEIR fraud, bribery?)claims for the first time homebuyers rebate. The IRS has gone extreme exercising their newer broader rights to find any reason not legal or meeting their changing rule to reject any return.
    The IRS did flood the media with announcements of dramatic proportions citing those who filed on the same house numerous times and I question this explosive, incendiary scare tactic usage. Is this a common thread in this Presidential Administration?
    I see the announcement of a second rebate program, and the IRS not yet having nearly paid out to rebating tax filers for the first ones! Poor government management, but lots of self-governing and government authoritative intervention.
    Most of us bought a home, because of the offered and well advertised rebate.
    BEWARE!

  87. Frigginpisd! on Mon, 28th Jun 2010 5:04 pm 

    I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I have NEVER had a problem with my refunds and this first time home buyer credit seemed like such a great idea at the time.

    This “Great Idea” has left me homeless and I am paying a mortgage on a home that I can’t get renovated because of my friggin refund being delayed!!! So I am homeless living from house to house with friends that will let me stay the night.

    I filed on 4/9/2010. I was told I would have my refund on 5/25/2010 when it wasn’t there, I called the IRS they said they sent me a letter but could not explain what the letter said. I wasn’t receiving my mail at my new house. I call the post office and they tell me that they don’t deliver to vacant homes and ALL OF MY MAIL was being returned to sender.
    Arrrghhhhhhh!!!!!

    So finally they have the settlement statement they were missing since I hadn’t closed on the home. And here I am waiting and waiting. Week by week. Night by night, day by day. And my home is just sitting vacant waiting for me to fix it and for me & my kids to move in.

    So even after all this, fourth of July is just around the corner & I am very proud to be in this beautiful nation.

    It’s life. I know the IRS is slammed with these returns and I am confident that I will be receiving my refund in a few more weeks or more but eventually I will. Until then, I guess I have no other choice but to try & make the best of this experience and so should everyone else.

  88. Wilder Boar on Fri, 2nd Jul 2010 12:20 pm 

    Talked to my TAS agent this week. The agent said the IRS is trying to give partial refunds to some people.I told her I would not accept that and retorted with “Absolutely not!”. This signaled to me immediately that the Fed does not have the money and is expecting filers getting the rebate to finance their own rebate!The IRS OWES many of us INTEREST!
    I don’t have a ‘pocket’, let alone a deep pocket on a fixed income below Federal poverty level.If the IRS should try that, I will have several people to take a highway exposed large board on private property for anyone to read.
    I have no confidence, anymore, in Federal government and find the IRS to be fraudulent. And I am tired of goody-goody-two-shoes sites were only positive posts on this IRS refund are sanctioned contrary to what the IRS is doing to all of us(those sites are usually sponsored by housing sales agents who just shake-down buyers for any commission in this dire economy).
    Further more, I don’t totally dismiss Rubber Chickens complaint. In my mind, the President(who gives direct orders to the IRS and broadly increased their license behavior to deny any tax claims this Spring) is punishing the state of Arizona right now. Arizonans may never see a legitimate first time homeowners rebate because of prejudicial denials by the IRS. I plan to fight a long time, if that happens to me and go public, media, more. Waiting since March 14 for a rebate on the most simple, uncomplicated submission of tax form and rebate form.

    I FILED AN INJURED SPOUSE first time buyers credit and an amended return back in feb 4 2010.

    I am giving an update to my previous post over a month ago regarding the FTHB credit of $8,000. Originally filed March 4, 2010, finally got a reply from IRS in MAY 2010 wanting additional info HUD-1, work check, etc. Rec’d that in 3 days. Rec’d another letter that they had rec’d it and it would be processed within 30 days. Well, 60 days later, I still sit here with no check and when I call the reps tell me that it is an address issue but its been cleared and they should process it at anytime. I am not holding my breath.

  91. Ali on Fri, 16th Jul 2010 11:19 am 

    You know, I might be a just a little frazzled because I had certain expectations concerning my non-received refund, but I am get a sinking feeling in my stomach about what we are going through. I have never heard it mentioned in the newspaper or on tv that so many many people are being (I think) intentionally delayed on their refunds.

    I’m starting to feel suspicious about everything even the BP oil spill. Remember gas climbing away every week like there was no end and we kept hearing via the media that oil was scarce (in high demand)(we’re competing with other “rising” countries) and that was driving the prices higher. Now look HOW MUCH oil spilled into the ocean and HOW LONG it has taken to fix? A bit nonchalant right? Like ok we’ll get to it…Now the poor fishing industry is sacked with a mega clean up. What about the lawsuits, the families, their livelihood, their industry legacies?

    Ok, maybe I just need to chill, but that sinking feeling is not going away. I wish I was wrong, but I think it’s all an orchestration for a production I don’t want to see or be involved with at all.

  92. nomammom on Sun, 18th Jul 2010 2:05 pm 

    I filed an amended tax return for 2006 because a corrupt judge had required me to reimburse the $112,500 monthly spousal support he awarded me in May 2006 “as one half of our monthly income” in a divorce proceeding that took 4 years of litigation in the district court of Reno now in the Nevada supreme court ( which I intend to take to the Federal Supreme Court if I have to sell my soul due to the conspiracy of Judges, of a 25 years of marriage with accumulated assets of over $80 million.) It is obvious that the courts did not read my motions, oppositions, brief and proofs of conspiracy of lies of attorneys including my own that cost me an approx amount of $3 million in atty’s fees and lost, lies and consporacy against me because I have fought back and had told the Judges exactly how I feel about them in my motions and in court when I started sppearing on my own as I was bankrupted by this judge All my allegations are true and well documented.

    As I stated above Ifiled my amended tax return done my accountant for a reimbursement on November 17,2009, acknowledges to have been receivees only in December 4,200.( this was already suspicious from Nevada to California maill took over 15 days? I followed up in February,March in the website No result. I then called someone in person with IRS about the status. I was told she will email a ” tax Advocate” so my refund will be expidited.

    In LATE MARCH 2010,I got a call from a tax advocate in Texas, “he had forwarded my record to somewhere in their office in texas. aPRIL WAS SILENT. IN MAY I CALLED TEXAS , IRS.

    I WAS TOLD THE GUY WHO HAD CALLED ME BEFORE NO LONGER HANDLES MY ACCOUNT. i WAS TOLD BY THIS WOMAN SHE WAS HANDLING IT BUT MY RECORD WAS SENT TO lAS vEGAS OFFICE WHERE I LIVE. I ASKED WHO IT WAS FORWARDED TO SO I COULD FOLLOW UP. SHE DID NOT KNOW OF A SPECIFIC NAME. i WAS ANGRY AND TOLD HER , IF SHE HAD FORWARDED IT , SHE WOULD KNOW WHO SHE FORWARDED IT TO. sHE DID NOT KNOW. i TOLD HER i NEEDED THE MONEY BADLY, AND WHAT SHOULD i DO BECAUSE I HAVE BILLS TO PAY AND IT HAS NOW BEEN 6 MONTHS SINCE i MAILED MY DOCUMENT, AND I DO NOT HAVE TO BEG FOR IT AS THAT MONEY WAS PAID TO IRS.

    SHE CALLED ME BACK AND TOLD ME MY PAPERS WAS SENT TO lAS VEGAS IN MAY TO A CERTAIN PERSON. I CALLED IRS LAS VEGAS THIS PERSON WAS ON VACATION FOR 2 WEEKS. I CALLED THREE TIMES BEFORE THIS WOMAN FINALLY CALLED ME IN JUNE TO TELL ME SHE HAD FORWARDED MY RECORD TO WHO NOW IN CHARGE.

    END OF JUNE, GOT A CALL FROM THIS MAN, EXAMINER, MY APPOINTMENT WITH HIM IS AUGUST 25,2010. I BEGGED TO MAKE IT JUY AS I NEEDED THE MONEY BADLY (0VER $240,000.00) HE CANNOT ASHE IS FULLY BOOKED. THIS EXAMINER HAD SENT ME A FORM TO SIGN FOR AN EXTENTION AS ” MY TAX FILING WAS EXPIRING SOON”

    IN THE FORM, HE FILLED IT OUT THAT IFSIGNED THE IRS WILL HAVE UNTIL 2011 TO REVIEW MY REFUND. I HAVE NOT SIGNED THE EXTENSION FOR. BECAUSE MY REFUND IS CLEARLY PREPARED THAT I AM ENTITLED THIS REIMBURSEMENT AS THE TAXEX WERE PAID BEFORE THE DECREE OF DIVORCE IN FEB. 25, REQUIRED ME TO PAY BACK MY SPOUSAL SUPPORT AGETER THIS JUDGE HAD INVALIDATED THE PNA I WAS MISLED TO SIGN AFTER A 25 YEARS OF MARRIAGE BY MY ATTY EX, “FOR FRAUD AND OVERREACHING” BY MR. AGAINST mRS, THEN VALIDATED THE MSA THAT WE HAD BOTH REVOKED.

    On my paper return, of the simplest kind filing for purchase of my mobile home on it’s own property, months ago(March 14, 2010 filing for purchasing and closing my home Fall, 2009) the IRS STILL has not sent me MY money. They record their LATEST EXCUSE coded as 8001.This is not the only EXCUSE they have used; the first one was they LOST the paperwork. I have had to (and COSTLY) resubmit the same and more paperwork MANY TIMES by CERTIFIED MAIL.They LIED about receiving the FAX from me FIRST TIME REQUESTED by THEM, so I’ve been using CERTIFIED MAIL.
    I am on a fixed, LOW, SSDA income and am under duress ane extreme hardship with my auto engine having blown with two head gaskets gone, needing a rebuilt engine.That car was my only transportation to medical appointments(from a rural BTW area) for a dastardly and progressive hereditary disesase I’ve had since 1988 plus a BROKEN spine since 2007(yes, some people try to ‘gimp’ around with BROKEN spines until a sharp surgeon detects them). The IRS has the LEAST respect for the ADA rights of people like me. The IRS is intentinally trying to not pay me MY money, hoping that I don’t have the strength and ‘guts’ to fight them for the first time homebuyers refund.
    Now is the time to go even more public with my legitimate complaint against the IRS.
    I supplied my IRS TAS agent with EVERY PAPER related to my purchase and closing on my home; far more than is required for a mobile home purchase, including personal information they DEMANDED.
    This is FRAUD on the part of the IRS. The IRS misconduct and lack of action reflects the LIES of the current DC ADMINISTRATION.
    Time past due NOW to pound the hell out them to get MY money.

  94. RA on Thu, 22nd Jul 2010 3:33 pm 

    Oh No one one can touch my problem…
    I am discovering most people with the Home Credit are delayed?
    I mailed my refund 2/4/10 I heard in May by letter they wanted me to resubmit because they lost my paperwork? add 8-12 weeks- I resubmitted: Then in July they posted the date of July 18 for the refund on IRS .GOV
    Then on July 19 I called them and they said: Your delayed we dont know why, looks like you filed twice…OMG! Now they say up to 12 more weeks…What a bunch of crap just what is going on at the IRS? I think they are delaying people on purpose who are due a refund. Very suspicious I personally know 5 other people like this situation.??? OBAMA HELP!

  95. RA on Thu, 22nd Jul 2010 3:48 pm 

    Not only that….When I told them about the date posted the IRS site the agent said: Well I am not sure how those dates pop up on the website???????????????????????????????
    WHAT?
    The problem is when you post a date it should be done by that date-People have bills to pay and no one understands when you give them a date and do not pay them because of the IRS site giving us hope of payment, then snatching it away the day after for 12 more weeks?????????? It may be Christmas when I see mine and I filed early! I am hopeing the Congress and our President get involved here for the American People ASAP! Help us please….

  96. RA on Thu, 22nd Jul 2010 3:53 pm

    My Brief History

    Filed amended 2005 1040X return on Oct 15th, 2009, which was within 3 years of my original return filed on Oct 16th, 2006.

    I got a letter in late November saying I was entitled to the refund (about 2400 for electric vehicle credit), and if it hasn’t already been deposited, it would be so within 2-4 weeks.

    Feb 2, 2010 I call cause there has been no refund. I spoke with a knowledgeable and patient Agent 1 who, after doing some checking, explained that the wrong date had been entered into the computer and had blocked the refund process. I said ok, you have the envelope scan showing the postmark, let’s fix it.

    Oh, have to submit a “referral” to the person working my case. I should get a letter by March 4th.

    March 5th I call, Talk to a very rude Agent #2 who told me my refund was being denied due to “statute of limitations”.

    I called back and talked to agent #3 who said my refund would be deposited within 10 days.

    Then I got a letter from the IRS denying the claim. In their justification, they said it was being denied because it wasn’t filed within 2 years of “the payment”. What payment? I said.

    So I filed a 15+ page appeal citing timely filing laws. Eventually I got a letter in response saying “We have forwarded your information to the area responsible for bringing the monies back from the Excess file and applying it to your account so that it will refund to you. According to your information, your 1040X was postmarked timely (I had proof!), and timely mailing is treated as timely filing. Please allow 4-6 weeks to process your request.”

    I cheered! I was going to get my refund!

    Weeks passed 4..5..6..7..8

    Called today (July 26th) to find out again why no refund. My case was “reassigned” 4 days ago, and suggested that I send a new “referral” to find out what is going on. This, of course, could take up to 30 days.

    We’ll see.

    ARG!

    Word to the wise – don’t file a 1040X on the last day!

  99. Wilder Boar on Mon, 2nd Aug 2010 10:41 am 

    What those continuous chains of referring accounts throughout the IRS officespersonel do, is further DELAY/STALL/DENY legitimate, legal refund and rebates to tax filers.
    “POSTED” means nothing, at all. It could well be months after that posted date, that any of us will still be fighting for our rights to our rebates/refunds.
    I read a horror story on one site, which described one filer getting a rebate check, cashing it.Then shortly after the IRS demanded the filer pay them back.Some filers, who have no income tax liability are sent BILLS by the IRS(another ploy letter type they use fairly often to stall).
    The IRS has no respect for the public, does not serve the public. Under strict orders, I surmise, the current DC broke government is going to ‘try’ the wits of any and all filers, saving money by not rebating as many as possible. There are well over 200,000 returns being frozen and denied. Now isn’t that quite a number?

  100. J on Tue, 3rd Aug 2010 12:43 am 

    I am with you all here. First Time Home buyers..sent in Feb2, Received the 12th. Multiple dates to received refund changed. Phone call in May says I didnt send in my Hud (flase), faxed it, had to fax it again (because it got lost). Changed my codes from 1201, 8001 and now back to 1201. Made me send in a 1040X because they lost the paperwork (again). I think they didnt want to have to pay late fees and this starts the clock over again. Here it is Aug 3, and I still havent received anything! Wow who the heck did they hire for these positions? I agree I dont see any of this in the news.

  101. burek beba on Tue, 3rd Aug 2010 2:34 am 

    IRS rcvd our joint reurn as of 4.15.2010. It’s being delayed b/c IRS says someone else used my hubby’s ssn on a single return in feb. taxpayer advocate cant seem to push it thru. we are looking at another 30 to 60 days of delay. our rtn is not out of ordinary, same amt as in prev. years. but really putting a hardship on us.

    wow i thought i was the only one i havent receive anything and i filed it on april and they told me i was going to get it in june and nothing know they told me that i supposed to get it this week and nothing i called and they fucking told me that they send it to the wrong address i just cant believe that shit i have bills to pay and they pop out with this man what is going on seriously?????

  105. Chris on Wed, 4th Aug 2010 5:39 pm 

    Wow, before reading this thread I thought that the IRS had a genuine excuse but it sounds more and more like a well planned agenda to me!

    We bought our house in mid-march and filed our return the very next day. 6 weeks later after no news, I call them and they say that they couln’t match my wife’s name with her SSN. Oh really? We have filed with the EXACT same information for years and NEVER had this issue.

    Isn’t it an odd coincidence that because we filed for the first-time homebuyer tax credit that this is SUDDENLY happening?

    Well, it’s August now and last I called last week they said that they finally fixed their mistakes but it will take another 4-6 weeks. At that point I just felt like laughing hard but I just said thank you and hung up in case they delay it more just because I was “rude”!

    Anyway, the IRS is God apparently!

  106. Wilder Boar on Thu, 5th Aug 2010 8:48 pm 

    I hope some of you have receiced your legitimate, legal entitled first time homebuyers rebates.I still have not met anyone who has; just reading more complaints on the overwhelming negative effect this rebate thing has had on many home buyers in needing condition, because of this economy. Like me, these buyers want to KEEP their purchased homes!
    On other sites I have read that filers for this rebate(purchasing in 2009 or up to 2010 extension cut-off) have been receiving NO or only PARTIAL rebates. The IRS apparently expects the lowest income people to carry the burden of the Federal Governments overspendindg elsewhere(bailouts, etc.). This is a clear message of ‘we don’t want you’ to the public;
    we are the IRS, you need go away’. In other words, they are NOT here to keep governement promises NOR serve the public, at all.
    That entire branch of Federal Government needs to be investigated and totally revamped STAT, firing most of the poshly employed and with higher class recruitment emphasizing people who work expediently.
    I have NO faith in the IRS, not the current Federal Government to enforce strict surveillance and to force performance on the IRS. Let alone receiving my legitimate, legal, entitled refund based on ACCURACY in FULL.
    My TAS agent told me they are off my case, as it has been “resolved” and I will be getting an ODD AMOUNT(both the dollars and the cents) rebate instead of MY $6,700. But WHEN and with the usual IRS BS excusesd? How CORRUPT they are on such a cheap priced home I bought in 2009, so little for them to rebate me the $6,700 THEY OWE ME.
    I’m not done yet.

  107. Wilder Boar on Fri, 6th Aug 2010 2:19 am 

    to Chawntel-see if you can get your post office to provide official verification of your address as your P.O. box and then snail mail that verification by certified mail with return receipt requested to the IRS. Yes, it get’s costly ‘battling’ the IRS.

    to: Burek beba-I think the poorly trained IRS agents(despite having access to all your tax records of many years) are intentionally overscprupulous and treating even established tax filers/payers as criminals.They feel that only taxpayers have anything to fear and that image drives the IRS agents to perform ‘efficiently’ to please their supervisors and the Federal Government(tsk, tsk-such a motivational goal). The real CRIME is on the many who have filed for their legitmate, legal, just due rebates.
    The Federal Government signed into law this past spring a bill giving the IRS an open day on taxpayers.That bill action will not provide the IRS with anymore $’s in reality, with the economy being so very poor. Sorry, don’t know who to complain to, other than your Congressional people.

    to: Ali-I have no hope that I will even meet anyone who has received their FTHB rebate, let alone the very few on all the internet sites I’ve been on who post they have. And there was no window of filing period in which all received their rebates. Some did, some didn’t within time frames. The IRS outright denied having received so many returns/said they lost the paperwork, said they couldn’t find the tax filed(I got all the nonesense from the IRS like hosts of others did).

    One of the most unproductive things for a filer to do, is wait until the IRS tells you to call them back.Be pro-active-call often, start right away,never quit. Get an IRS TAS agent on your case early, with the IRS’s first delay letter excuse to you.Some regional IRS TAS service centers may take up to two months to get your case advocacy started.When that fails, then write your Congressional people.

    In my mind, the IRS is not run like the business of Federal Government it should be.I equate them to a culture of their own
    onto their own internal ‘cult’ rules and not wanting public disclosure nor transparency of process.

    What would I know, that you already didn’t?

    Our pathetic government is BANKRUPT. There is no other legitimate reason for the shafting of America going on this year with the first time homebuyer credit. It was a huge scam from day one, period !

  109. Ali on Sat, 7th Aug 2010 9:29 am 

    Philadelphia, PA-I left a message for senator Bob Casey, senator Arlen Spector, and two via email for the President. I have not received so much as an acknowledgement that someone would look into my problem with the IRS. In fact, when I called sentor Spector’s office, the woman who took the message implied that I was not the only one who called in complaining. Yesterday, I emailed NBC6 to inquire if they received any complaints about this-no response yet.

    By the way, I put my city and state because I am hoping to get an idea of where everyone is and if there is a trend. It may not mean anything, but so far, I’ve only run into one person who said they had not received their return and they were not a first time home buyer. Please leave your city and state if your interested.

    Right now, I cannot register for my fall classes because I have not paid for the one summer class I took. I did not request financial aid because I was going to pay for it with my refund. My original returned filed in FEB. and additional paperwork sent in May. I’m still waiting…I am in a master’s program. Two of my children were denied financial aid because of the “expected” returned, so I have asked for them to be reconsidered. I do not have the money they think I have and I don’t know when I’m going to get it.

    What concerns me most is that if the government is truly bankrupt as I have heard, what is the IRS going to do in the next 5 months when folks are going to start preparing for 2011 taxes? Can I file a return for 2011? How will it work? With no money now to pay what is legally owed to taxpayers and no media coverage (I’ve seen or heard), it this the catalyst for the “economic collapse of the US?” I’m concerned…and you know that’s an understatement.

    Can someone give me a link to other boards on this topic? Thanks

  110. Ali on Sat, 7th Aug 2010 9:37 am 

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I do not believe a TAS, congress, White House, Media will help because I believe more that this fiasco is man-made. It’s like living inside a real live Matrix with the IRS as the Evil Duplicating Smith…but evil cannot reign indefinitely. It has an end. Thank you Jesus!

  111. FTHBC on Sat, 7th Aug 2010 11:35 pm 

    I was told by IRS that they will send me a thick packet with questionnaire and I have to send back after which I have to wait 45 days to get my refund. What is this questionnaire and what other documents they will ask for?

  112. Really!?!? on Tue, 10th Aug 2010 5:18 pm 

    Common!, mid-August and we are still waiting. The problem is that I’m starting to fear the worse: not getting my refund at all!

  113. WinningOne on Wed, 11th Aug 2010 7:07 am 

    I filed my return in March. 6 weeks later the website said it was being delayed and instructed me to call with code 1201. The IRS had the correct street for my home but wrong city. Also, they claimed my return wasn’t signed. Since then I have faxed back to them 3 signature forms and they have updated my address 6 times. I received a phone call from a Taxpayer advocate yesterday and she told me that my return was being investigated and, guess what?…..that’s right she still had the wrong address. Beyond the EZ 1040 the only difference to my return was that I purchased a house for the first time. There’s nothing to investigate and yet still I’m getting the run around.

  114. Kerry on Wed, 11th Aug 2010 10:23 am 

    I closed on my home 12/15/2010 and filed my taxes end of January 2010 the same time as my accontant (who also filed her first time credit along with mine). I kept checking online to find the status of my refund, it said by the 04/30/2010 I should get a reply. On 04/30/2010 I got a letter from the IRS stating that they needed extra information to review my case (my accountant also got this same letter). We both prepared the information they requested: Copy of HUD, Drivers license, bank statements, copy of checks (cash purchase of property) made to seller, and utiliy bills, etc. Every single month since, I have been getting lettersstating that they recieved my correspondence on 05/07/2010 and to give them time (at least 5 different letters) I have also called every week since, just to make sure my files were updated and the information I had mailed off was there, just incase they said I was missing anything. On 08/09/2010 I called and the lady on the phone says that there is no records of me indicating that I ever mailed anything, and that they will be mailing me out a letter stating that my case has been DISALLOWED!!!! because I have not paid mortage interest??? Excuse my french but WTF!!! Clearly the IRS have dumped my files, and been giving me the run around!!!… First, my home was purchased CASH, it states that on the HUD and on the copies of the checks, another thing is that I have proof that they got my mail with the information because they have been sending me letters stating when they got the correspondents….and another thing,,,when I call why would they be able to tell me everything on my case on the computer. NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN it vanished in thin air? Is thislegal?

    So the lady on the phone was not much help, so I hung up and called back speaking with another examiner who then says to fax her in everything today directly to her line and she will have my case closed. Now let me fill you in on a few things: my accountant got her credit from all the way in JUNE, so the bullcrap they were feeding me with about working in a time frame is rubbish. Also I got intouch with an advocate, I wasn’t about to sit on my ass and let the IRS walk over me. My advocate on the other hand is supposed to get back intouch with me by the 08/12/2010.

    I don’t know what to do but just make a bunch of phone calls to see who I can get through to. I am in need of this $$$, I am a full time student and I dont work.

    CAN ANYONE give me some advice!!!

  115. Ali on Thu, 12th Aug 2010 11:53 am 

    Hello Kerry,

    I was recently told myself that they could not find my return in their system. Ofcourse I don’t believe it vanished, but I do believe that some hands at the IRS don’t know what other hands are doing. My case has gone up for a “referral” whatever that is for the next 31 days. After that I can ask for a TAS, whatever that is. It’s just more of a delay. I told the IRS person that I would not resend my return because that would give the IRS another excuse to delay my return with TWO returns recorded. Ofcourse they have your return SOMEWHERE, so persevere.

    What I’d like to know is WHAT DID YOUR ACCOUNTANT DO TO GET HER MONEY???? Can she help you out anymore?

  116. Chris on Thu, 19th Aug 2010 2:30 pm 

    Talked to IRS and online status finally shows that my refund with FTHB will be deposited tomorrow, 08-20-2010, with interest. I’ll believe it when I see it posted in my bank account. We’ve been waiting since mid-March!

    Good luck to all!

  117. Chris on Fri, 20th Aug 2010 7:59 am 

    Yup, my refund was deposited this morning as planned. Such a relief! Good luck to all!

  118. Ali on Fri, 20th Aug 2010 3:19 pm 

    Congrats Chris. I actually felt some relief by hearing you say you got your refund deposited and with interest! I hope we all can get our long overdue legally filed refunds. Been waiting since Feb.

  119. Wilder Boar on Sun, 22nd Aug 2010 9:06 pm 

    Of course, the IRS shorted me on my legitimate FTHBR by over $200. I have a feeling they arbitrarily assigned my rebate calculation to a program, other than the one under which I filed for the rebate. The check was an odd amount of both dollars and cents, NOT the even $6,700 I was entitled to.
    Of course, after all the IRS’s mistakes, it will take another seven months or more to recieve what they still owe me.
    Of course, I will do everything I can think of to pound it out of them.
    Of course, more down the waiting game road later…..

  120. Ali on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 4:12 pm 

    Hi,

    just wanted to report that my refund came in today at about half of what it was supposed to be. I feel jipped. I don’t know how they decided what credit to give me or not and I will need a copy of what they gave me credit for and what they witheld to send to schools that I report to for financial aid. I need to give them a copy of the return that the IRS amended themselves without notifying me that they did it and why. For the time being, I am grateful for what I do have because my family needed it yesterday. My best wishes to the rest of you still waiting for something…

  121. Walter from Waco on Sun, 29th Aug 2010 3:29 am 

    I did not apply for a FTHB credit but my Mom’s estste is owed a refund by the IRS and it too is delayed as well as my daughter’s return. She also did not apply for a FTHB credit.

    I have a question: What is the ethnicity of those with delayed refunds? Did it occur to anyone here that the same administration that closed GM and Chyrsler dealers based on political contributions and race would also provide refunds to some people but not others based on the same criteria?

    I expect to get shouted down here for asking the question, but based on evidence there might be a correllation between those refunded and those that aren’t.

  122. Iranian Lover on Mon, 30th Aug 2010 7:32 pm 

    I Filed my Taxes on March the 8th. Please spare me the items like I have a High Red Flagged Refund coming when Last Year I got $10050.00! This year is $9,000.00! At the present timme the WMR Site is saying “THERE IS A DELAY IN PROCESSING YOUR TAX RETURN!” WTF=WHAT THE FREAK! I am a hard working man of 40-something and I prefer not to say what. I am tired of you all saying it has taken so long then one or two gets their Refund and still complain and complainn when I filed on March the 8th people!!!!!!!!!! I am waiting for a mere Nine grand while everyone is getting eight or mmore I am getting less I am sick of waiting and to hear you all received the refund while I am still waiting that is great for you all not so for me.

  123. Mike on Sat, 4th Sep 2010 6:10 am 

    I have filled my taxes on 10 april 2010. I have received my “home buyer’s credit” full in june. But my tax refund is delayed and i have number 1201 in my refund status web page…

  124. john W on Wed, 8th Sep 2010 7:30 pm 

    I am still waiting congressional investigation ongoing can only hope!!! Since feb 4 the IRS is full of excuses and libs….

  125. john W on Sun, 12th Sep 2010 9:38 pm 

    F*** THE IRS my Congressman here in Michigan has no clue The Irs told him to call back october 17th over a month from today he and TAS have had my info since July and have nothing to show for it but this. The IRS has had my tax info since feb 4th and I have not heard a thing since late March I call weekly and get excuses, The IRS can BLOW ME I am going to contact My Senators and The Whitehouse but expect more of the same B.S. What a joke This Country has become. Maybe they can pay my bills or just KISS MY ASS…..

  126. Ali on Tue, 28th Sep 2010 11:02 am 

    Hi again,

    just wanted to give another update on the other half of my refund the FTHBC which I am still waiting for. The IRS told me by letter that they rejected my return for the credit because I did not qualify for the “first time” home buyer status. So, I had to write back and say that I did qualify for a credit as a “long-time resident” (a $6500 credit). The box for this credit is right below the FTHBC box on form 1040 and mine was checked. I had to resend documentation (including my original processed return) with a letter of explanation that they made an error. I sent it off last week and will be waiting for the credit to be issued hopefully in 60 days or less.

    To: Iranian Lover-this board serves to share and support our stories and frustrations with the IRS,not each other ok?- not being mad at people who are or were in the same boat as you. Not only did I send my refund before you (Feb), but I made several calls to my congressmen,about 3 emails to the president, and I called and called and struggled with nasty IRS employees who acted like they were disgusted that I was getting more money back than they were. Thankfully, I did speak with a few nice ones and one of them found an error for me and corrected it over the phone and I got $700 bucks in my account in less that two weeks. When you do get your return, I hope you get the full return because if you don’t… DONT “WHINE AND COMPLAIN.” I don’t want to hear it.

    To everyone else: Stay diligent and keep on the IRS and send emails to everybody you think has some political influence. It can’t hurt and only serves to show that the IRS needs work harder and faster to get everybodys money back in their hands.

  127. Its my money and i need it NOW!!!!! on Sun, 24th Oct 2010 8:40 pm 

    Code 8001 what does that really mean? Filed amended return in may, still waiting!

  128. Ali on Mon, 15th Nov 2010 6:59 am 

    Hi again,

    this is my final post. I finally received my FTHBC. It took so long, but I got it with interest. AND, the white house did contact the IRS on my behalf. I just sent a thank you email to the president and his staff. I got a letter from the Department of the Treasury-specifically from John Rad on behalf of Melinda P. Wilson who is the Acting Field Director of Accounts Management in Kansas City. It was a very nice letter explaining the difficulty in processing this years returns.They apologized for the inconvenience of extra verification due to the high risk of fraud. Well, thanks to the Tax Forum for allowing me to vent and give some tips that helped me to get my long overdue and much needed refund.

  129. shejust on Mon, 15th Nov 2010 1:43 pm 

    I was told I qualified for the ist time home buyers with no problem. I filed an ammedndment to my taxes. That was the beginning of the nightmare. Everytime I spoke with someone from the IRS I got a different answer. One min. the check is coming the next I wasn’t getting a check. I was reffered to an advocate. I constantly had to fax paperwork over and over. It would take months the get the same answer. I would get appts. every 30 days for phone calls with no new news and get a new appt. time. To the point my house is in foreclousure. As a single Mother why can’t I get help what is it that I need to do??????? I work hard pay my taxes don’t rely on the Govt. for help. But when I’m owed what’s due me…..

  130. erik bradshaw on Tue, 16th Nov 2010 3:10 pm 

    Man what a load of crap. I filed my taxes in FEB.2010 and we are coming up on Thanksgiving and still the same old song and dance.The want to insinuate I my be lying about were I lived before I bought my house. Like I knew this was coming. I finally got a Tax advocate I was like thank God now maybe someone is on my side. She asked my for a ton of paper work gave me 5 days to get. I did in one,she tells us the IRS 2 weeks to rebut. We call her today,she gave they another 30 days to review. Then gives me attitude because I am pissed. I pay taxes on public school programs that peoples kids can go to if they can not speak English. My kids can not because I make to much money .I can pay for it but can not use it. I have to pay for daycare for my child that has a speech impediment.I figure it they can teach or help other kids why not mine. No dice, here is something I do get and they are trying to stone wall me,and doing a fine job of it. What will it take to get rid of the IRS and just go with a flat tax of like 15% you make 1 dollar you pay 15 cent you made 1 mil you pay 150000. At least it would be fare.

  131. RHR Farms on Sat, 27th Nov 2010 1:16 pm 

    In 2007, I inherited an IRA from my father who died unexpectedly, and with a portion of that money, I bought a house in 2008 (former owner is financing it for 5 years with a balloon). I qualified for the FTHO credit, filed my taxes with a CPA on an extension in September, and have also gotten the run around on my $8K refund (Nov. 6th, then the 16th, then Dec. 3rd), and just now finally called the 800 phone number and got a message that they’d reduced my refund to zero dollars and that I should recieve a notice in the mail saying why – which of course, I haven’t gotten yet. I says if I think there’s been an error, to call 800-829-0582 and ask for ext. 732. Does this sound familiar to anyone?? Could it be because I took advantage of owner-financing instead of a (corrupt!) Fannie Mae loan or something??

  132. Debra on Thu, 9th Dec 2010 1:20 pm 

    We are still owed the $8000 tax credit for new home buyers. We closed on the house in APRIL!!!!!! One of our tax returns from a prior year had used “certain terminalogy’ that indicted that there was a prior homeownership disqualifying us from the credit. We had our tax return filed by a seasoned tax pro who then explained the mistake to the IRS.. all we get from them is “thankyou for your inquiry, we need to gather more info, we will be back in touch within 45 days” If we owed it to THEM however, we would have exactly 45 MINUTES to come up with the the money or they seize your bank account. HOW CAN THIS BE LEGAL!!! The government ENCOURAGED people to pump their hard- earned money into the housing market by PROMISING this $8000,,, then they renagued on their half of the bargain. FRAUD!!!! FRAUD!!! FRAUD!!! I will NEVER trust the IRS

  133. pissed off and broke on Tue, 14th Dec 2010 11:35 am 

    I filed my first time homebuyers credit in january. I received my credit but now I am receiving a letter saying I have to pay it back with a penalty of 1100.00 and interest of 186.00 what a load of crap. They said they did not receive my closing statement with my return. Watch out I think this credit was a way for the government to make money. I am now having to send my life history, utility bills bank statements copy of cashiers checks deed title the whole nine yards. Basically I feel I am being accused of defrauding our fraudulent government. I think they need to take a look at themselves in the mirror. They are the ignorant ones.

  134. Michelle S. on Fri, 17th Dec 2010 8:28 pm 

    Well, it appears I am in the same boat as many of you. I filed my taxes in April with necessary documentation for Longtime resident credit (6500). I then got a letter that they needed more info such as propery tax payments, bank statements with addresses, etc to prove we had lived in the home for 5 years. Sent that in got a letter saying they received it Aug. 3,2010. Every month I get the same letter we received your correspondence and are reviewing we will update you another month away. I have now received 4 of the same letter. I have called IRS noone will tell you when or what the heck is going on. I called Tax advocate they will not help because I am not at a hardship yet. I am beginning to wonder if I will ever receive it. The government wants there money today but I have been waiting now 8 months. I WANT MY MONEY!!!

  135. Brian S. on Sun, 2nd Jan 2011 7:51 pm 

    I am in the same boat as Michelle S. Identical scenario. There is no ownership of responsibility at the IRS. They are a joke. Don’t expect the money anytime soon. They are holding on to it as long as possible and only releasing it at the last moment possible. They charge interest when you pay late…. They should pay us interest when they are late too.

  136. richard horton on Tue, 1st Feb 2011 1:02 pm 

    all harworking americans are getting the run around on tax returns but welfare people who 5 kids have gotten their returns back already go firgure , they gettin 5000 or better but if u work and pay taxes they screwing with peoples money and futhermore its unconstuintional to take taxes!!!!!!!!

  137. ticked off and fed up on Fri, 4th Feb 2011 2:14 pm 

    The IRS is a big PIMP!!!!!!! They play with taxpayer’s livelyhood whom work very hard only to get screwed over….. I filed originally on 1/18 and my return was accepted by the IRS. I had a projected DD date of 2/1. I knew something was wrong because I know that the IRS only deposits on Fridays…… Then as I expected, my date of 2/1 disappears and then the system sayss its in process with no date of course, and a reference code 1301…..

    WHAT A BUMMER…………

  138. sandra on Sat, 5th Feb 2011 5:30 pm 

    well from the looks of it im in the same boat!!!! i just filed my return and i got code 1301!! when i called thy said i have been selected for review! also a letter was mailed out on feb 1… my original date to receive my refund was jan 28 then feb 1.. now im waiting on a letter!! whats the difference between audit and review???

  139. Tamra Philamalee on Sun, 6th Feb 2011 2:02 am 

    We filed for the FTHBTC of $8000.00 and about 6 weeks later we received a letter stating that I did not send in the HUD statement. So I sent them another copy and called about two months later only to find out that the waiting time of 12 to 18 weeks started over because of the missing paperwork. about two months after that we received another letter stating that we were not eligable for the credit because we apperantly were not residing in the home we purchased. Well news flash I was residing in the home I purchased before I purchased it (idiots)! I called the IRS and they informed me I woould be receiving a new letter to send in documentation provingthat we live in our home. I thought to myself, If I wasn’t living in the home I purchased then how am I receiving letters from you idiots at the address I claim that I live in? To make a long story short I was able to get a tax advocate to render this situation. She called me and said that she will be handeling the IRS from this point on and that my file has been pulled and is being worked on. Promising that it will be completed within 4 weeks. I guess we will see cause at this point it has been 8 months that we have been waiting for the refund!

  140. ktyler on Sun, 6th Feb 2011 4:24 am 

    Yeah…I was told the same thing…different dates…different reasons by different people,…finally they told me i owed 150 bucks from back taxes and it would be till th end of march @ the latest! Why the hell would I have to wait till the end of march? What is so difficult about taking out 150 bucks out of a return I filed the twentieth of January! Governments broke- everyones having problems with it this year!

  141. jennifer on Wed, 9th Feb 2011 4:39 am 

    e-filed by jan 30th.. expected direct deposit on feb 11th.. now the 9th.. 2 days before they tell me there is a delay with a code 1201! I have stayed on hold for 40 min now and still nothing. Has anyone had this code and could tell me roughly how long your delay way? Thanks!

  142. mrsC4life on Wed, 9th Feb 2011 6:32 am 

    @ticked off and fed up~ The same thing is happening to me right now. At 3 a.m. my status changed from being processed with a receive date of Feb. 15th to delay in processing reference code 1481. After my 2nd call with 30 minutes wait time and being disconnected after the first call, my status switched to being processed and may take up to 3 weeks. Then I got a reference code while on the phone with the IRS and checking online of 8002. PLEASE HELP! Does anyone know what reference code 8002 conduct account analysis means specifically? As I’m sure you imagined, the IRS has no idea what’s going on with my return except to tell me they are looking it over and trying to process it. The 1481 code refers to an incorrect direct deposit account and/or routing number. I quadruple checked and I not only entered the correct numbers, but I already received my state returns in that account! I am broke, have 4 kids AND my husband got laid off! I don’t have time to play games with our cheating, scammin ass government!

  143. Cheri on Wed, 9th Feb 2011 7:05 am 

    FILED MY TAXES JAN 5. SUPPOSE TO GET REFUND ON FEB 1ST. FEB 1ST COMES AND GOES. GET ERROR CODE 8001. CALL IRS–SAID PROCESSING DELAY WILL HAVE IT BY FEB TH. CHECK NOW AND I GET CODE 1201…SERIOUSLY??

  144. NEKADLB on Wed, 9th Feb 2011 7:43 am 

    My expected date was Jan. 28th and no later than the Feb. 1st. I have been waiting since and no refund. When I go onto irs.gov it says that my refund is being delayed and to call and the reps code 1201. They don’t have any idea what that means. So I have a tax advocate, I submitted all the information that was needed. I have bills to pay, I don’t wait till the last minute to pay but I was relying on this money to get a car and pay my bills up to Apr. at the least. NOw I am waiting> I don’t owe any back taxes, I already called to confirm that. I have done everything in the proper order. I don’t know what is going on. I will not depend on that money every year anymore. IRS is full bs. I pay my taxes everytime I get paid. I bet they don’t have a delay on that, it comes out of every paycheck faithfully. Its sad how the people that pay their taxes on time is being screwed. Has anyone ever used a tax advocate and got their money back within 2 weeks of the day he/she started on your refund?

  145. roger knauth on Sat, 12th Feb 2011 4:04 pm 

    I have read all the grievances of you good people, and I am truly angered by how folks have been hurt by IRS incompetence and arrogance. Sadly, this is the definition of “big government”.

    I filed and amended return and form 5405 for the Long-Time Resident credit of $6,500 and the cost of a geothermal system, which pays a 30% credit on the cost of the geothermal system and installation. My refund is for over $15,000. I filed it on May 17, 2010. I have verification that it was scanned into the IRS system on May 28, 2010. There was a request for additional support information in October, 2010, promptly forwarded to the IRS. I have since received two letters promising a decision in a month. Today is February 12, 2011 and still no word about the refund. That’s nine months since the IRS originally entered my amended return into its system. It’s an insult to my intelligence.

    Is anyone aware of a class action suit in process on behalf of
    American taxpayers? Good luck to everyone.

  146. alexis fig... on Sun, 13th Feb 2011 3:23 pm 

    i’m goin threw the same thing with my income tax first they gave me refence no. 1301 now their telling me 1221…. NOW WHO FILLED LAST YEAR AND HAD THESE ISSUES?????? IF SO HOW LONG DID IT REALLY TAKE TILL YOU GOT YOUR REFUND???????????

  147. Michael Berry on Sun, 13th Feb 2011 6:51 pm 

    We filed our taxes on FEB 3rd 2011 and was told our refund of 04 1255.00 was to be direct deposited on FEB 11 2011 then that didn’t happen we get a 2101 WTF is going on that is pure BS .

  148. Jennifer R on Mon, 14th Feb 2011 8:43 am 

    I was supposed to get my refund on the 11th. I got my state refund from CA (very suprised!) but not the refund from The feds. My status went from Processing with an expected deposit date of 2.15 to now code 1201. The number i call with the extension does not work. I get told that because of the reason im calling i need to call back later or the next business day. Does anyone know how best to get on the phone with someone there??

    Filed through H&R Block and it has been a nightmare. Filed on 1-31-11. IRS received return the same day…even received notification for it. Date to be given refund was for 2-14-11. Well that has not happened. Checked on IRS website (wheres my refund” icon. Now am getting 1201 delay reference code. I have never had a problem with a single tax filing before. I do not owe back taxes. Called the number provided on the website and was on hold for 50 minutes!!!!!! I couldn’t be on hold any longer so I eventually hung up. After reading previous posts I am holding no hope of getting this resolved or seeing my return in the near future. This is ridiculous.

  150. Stephanie on Mon, 14th Feb 2011 5:44 pm 

    Could any you having issues be a result of the delay processing the wonderful IRS decided to put into effect? http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=234736,00.html

  151. debra bogina on Wed, 16th Feb 2011 12:31 am 

    hr block says it was efiled. but irs says they dont have it. and irs wants another copy. but hr block said not to send it becuaase it will kick them bothe out.

    I RECEIVED A DAMN LETTER STATING: WE HAVE RECEIVED YOUR INCOME TAX RETURN AND ARE HOLDING YOUR REFUND UNTIL WE COMPLETE A THOROUGH REVIEW OF YOUR RETURN. THIS REVIEW IS PART OF AN ONGOING PROGRAM THE IRS CONDUCTS TO ENSURE THE ACCURACY OF RETURN INFORMATION. YOUR RETURN WAS SELECTED BECAUSE WE ARE REVIEWING ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING: INCOME YOU REPORTED ON YOUR RETURN; INCOME TAX WITHHOLDING AMOUNTS YOU REPORTED ON YOUR RETURN; CLAIMS FOR TAX CREDITS YOU MADE ON YOUR RETURN; BUSINESS INCOME YOU REPORTED ON YOUR RETURN!!!!!

  153. Jodee on Sun, 20th Feb 2011 3:36 pm 

    Well. I just got my tax refund back only partial though.. I was to get $5559 back as being a single mother with 3 kids and I only recieved $937.00.. WTF…… ANywhays I am currently at a reference code of 9021.. meaning I had a math error on my return somewhere.. I though that Turbo Tax caught this stuff… I believe the balance of mine it from the Earned Income Credit for my children.. but who knows.. I am in the same boat as all of you posting here.. I think that AMericans need to sue thier own governemnt for the way we are treated!!!! God knows if they were treated that way it woudl be unacceptable!!!! HEll we pay thier salaries.. and the IRS is not even in the constitiution that we are required to pay taxes!!!!

  154. Nicole on Sun, 20th Feb 2011 8:12 pm 

    Did my tax return thru hr block. Received my refund on Feb 4th. Mailed an amended return on jan 28th. called and spoke to rep on 2/17/11. Said that my amended return had been processed and that my check would be printed and mailed in 2 weeks. (it was in the final stages or something to that extent) Called to see if it was on the refund hotline and now it is saying there is a delay in processing my refund and that to call using ref #1201. Hopefully everything is alright. Have not called yet. Will call Monday and update.

  155. Vicki on Mon, 21st Feb 2011 2:14 pm 

    Filed a paper return first week of February. Checked “where’s my refund” on the IRS website and it indicated that a refund was being processed and should be expected by March 21, 2011. One day later, it had changed to the following message:

    “Your expected refund date has been changed due to processing delays. You should receive your refund by March 22, 2011.

    Please wait until that date to contact us again because we cannot take any action until then. Thank you for your patience.”

    The refund date is actually the same as before, but says it is delayed. It has been like this for about a week – but no reference code is included. I called and go the same info…again no reference code. Any ideas?? Thanks.

  156. IRS Hater on Fri, 10th Jun 2011 2:04 pm 

    So my story is no different than everyone else. 1st off, notice todays date – 6/10/11. I e-filed my taxes in early Jan – eager! I get the email notification from TurboTax that they’ve been accepted, check irs’s website for expected refund date (which was to be the end of Jan). February – expected date is pushed back. Contact IRS they tell me that they need to do a review and to expect to hear from them in 30 days (received letter). March, per IRS, still reviewing, please call back in 30 days. Now of course I am asking every question I can think of to try to find out what has caused a 90 – 120 day delay, and the agent tells me (which you can tell is a complete assumption just to get me off her phone) that since I didn’t file last year, that is probably what is causing the hold up. I told her that I was unemployed the previous year – no W2 no taxes. She says, oh – well I really don’t know why they are still reviewing, call back in 30 days. April – still reviewing, please call back in 30 days – we’ll send you a new letter. Receive letter – (parapharsing) This is to advise you that we are reviewing your returns. Please follow up in 30 days from the date of this letter. WOW – I find out that the office I am working for is closing at the end of the month – so now the need for the refunds has become desperate! May – still reviewing, please call back in 30 days. No one can tell me What the cause for the review is, everyone keeps telling me to read the vague letter they’ve sent me for answers, and it seems all agents just want to pass the buck to the sucker who will answer the phone in 30 days. Here we are in June, job closed, no follow up from IRS – I’m thinking they should hire me there since all they know how to say is “call back in 30 days” I can do that!! I did get an agent to tell me that there is a Taxpayer Advocate Severice that is designed to work FOR us not the IRS: http://www.irs.gov/advocate/ will call them today. THIS IS SO PITIFUL! FOOD FOR THOUGHT – If I owed the IRS $1000 and filed them late after 4/15, they would charge me an INSANE amount of late fees that incur daily… Why is it that they can be 5 months late (and if I wait another 30 days, it’ll be 6 months), have no explanation for me (which should be my equivilent to filing an extension), with no consequenses. I feel like they should be paying me late fees, right?? Yo – in the words of Billie Jean – Fair Is Fair! LOL

    Reply to my previous comment – Oh and FYI, I am an EZ filer – no home, no itemized stack of receipts – just me, my child, and my student loan

  158. Kim on Tue, 14th Jun 2011 4:42 am 

    Filed our taxes early February, IRS said we would receive our refund on 3-22-11. We are still waiting for our money. Due to the First Time Homebuyers Credit they are “reviewing” our return. We sent them all the documentation they needed to process our return when we filed it but they sent us a letter 2 months later requesting additional info. We have since given them MORE copies of our pre-closing contract, HUD settlement contract, and several forms of identification as per their request. Then yesterday we get a letter from them saying we owe them $357.00 and they were still reviewing our return. Called the IRS and they said the $357 was a penalty for falsely claiming the homebuyer’s credit…After explaining to the lady we have sent ALL the documents needed to process this we were told to resend everything and it will be reviewed within 2 months and if we qualify for the refund it will be mailed in 3 weeks. So let me get this straight, we’ve repeatedly given the IRS everything they need to issue us a refund, they deny our credit even though we DO qualify, then I have to wait 3 more months to get the money they owe me as they review our case AGAIN? This is ridiculous, I don’t think they are even looking at our tax return, just kicking it from pile to pile in thier office. So it will be a total of 8 months to get this money. I made sure all my documentation was in order when I applied for the credit. They could have processed this 3 months ago with the information I sent them. Somebody needs to sort this out, nobody should have to go through this to get money they are owed.

  159. Rose on Tue, 14th Jun 2011 11:41 am 

    I am having the same issue for the last 2 years. I purchased my home in Jan 09 & still have not received my 8k. I just keep getting letters pushing it further and further. My accountant has done everything right on his part. They told me I should be getting it within 4 weeks that my case was FINALLY closed in april but they are having tech. difficulties on their end for my direct deposit. SERIOUSLY!!?? I bet if i owed the 8k there would not be a problem.

    WELL I FILED ON FEB ELECTRONICALLY FILED FEB 16TH AND WAS INFORMED THAT THERE WAS SOME SORT OF GLITCH WITH THE IRS DATABASE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU WERE A FTHB TRYING TO REPAY YOUR CREDIT (WHICH WE ARE)…TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT THE IRS OWES ME OVER 7,000…AND IT’S JUNE 21ST!!!!!! NO RHYME OR REASON…JUST A GLITCH…RIDICULOUS!

  162. John G on Sun, 26th Jun 2011 11:45 am 

    I received a letter stating I needed to complete the MOST RECENT 5405. The one I included originally with my return was dated (Rev. 12-2010), to be attached to 2009-2010 returns, which was APPROPRIATE for my 04/15/2010 purchase. The “most recent” 5405 form sent to me by the IRS was dated (Rev. 7-2010) for 2008-2009 tax years! NOT EVEN the RIGHT TAX YEAR! WHAT MORONS! Tax help-line lady just scratched her head and told me to fill it out and send in! WHAT A JOKE. Now I got a direct deposit of my return MINUS $8000 FTHB tax credit, with a 9021 code on the website….WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Government is run by a bunch of FREAKING IDIOTS! Can I say that? Can you tell I’m upset? Yup! Of course it’s Sunday and I can’t call and biatch at anybody……..thanks for feeling my pain…

  163. michael on Mon, 27th Jun 2011 12:18 pm 

    I filed in March – by mail, since I had to attach my HUD papers. I’m still waiting for my refund. They now tell me to expect it July 26th. Hmm, how much confidence do I have they will process it by then? They haven’t made any of the other dates they have given so far. I can only imagine they are totally overwhelmed by the number of rebates. I hope they still have the money by the time I get my refund.

  164. TickedOffTaxpayer on Wed, 29th Jun 2011 9:23 pm 

    Same with me Sandra. I e-filed my return in March, got the same letter in mid-April. I called the IRS, they referred me to TAS who told me the agent wanted copies of my paystubs and bank statements to verify my income and withholdings. I sent all the documentation they asked for including the original W2 and 1099′s. At the end of 45 days I contacted the IRS again and they told me they completed the analysis and sent it on to “another department” to “give its blessing” to release my refund and I was supposed to receive a letter to that effect, and the process would take 30 days. Never got a letter, tried opening a new case with TAS to expedite the process but they will not respond to the 911 form nor with they take or return any of my calls. The 30 days is now up, I’m calling the IRS again 1st thing in the morning and I am looking for an attorney because I am expecting I’ll have to take the IRS to court to force them to pay me my damn money. The IR-freaking S would have no such patience with me. If I owed them even a few hundred dollars they would have seized my vehicles and my house and put me in jail. Since I can’t put liens on them, I’m going the next best route, I’m taking them to task on this. There’s no excuse for this, and I’m not going to bend over any longer for them while they take my hard-earned refund and use it to pay overinflated social programs, fund some overseas military exploit or pad their own pockets. As it is, their refusal to pay my refund has put my family under hardship and I’d advise anyone with the same problem to seek whatever help they can get. TAS will not help you! They ARE the IRS.

  165. TickedOffTaxpayer on Sun, 3rd Jul 2011 6:09 am 

    Sandra, do you have a large refund due? The IRS owes me a 5 figure refund, all because last year I asked the bank to withhold the taxes on a monetary inheritance at 35%, to make sure I was covered regardless of what the taxes ended up being. My actual taxes when I filed were nowhere near 35%, which is why I ended up with a refund over $10,000. If the other people I’ve seen on this forum still haven’t gotten their refund issues resolved after 2 years, (they have 1 more year before the statute of limitations runs out) then there is no way I’m ever getting my refund from the IRS without taking them to court. BTW, you CAN take them to court and force them to pay. You have a 3 year statute of limitations to claim your refund from April 15 of the year you filed your taxes. Don’t wait for the IRS, they will not help you and don’t care if you live or die. Get a lawyer, and get one as soon as you can! We should not have to roll over and let the IRS screw us like this. Our government does not and will never care about us or help us; we need to stand up for ourselves and take these bastards to court and force them to pay us. They would have far less mercy on us if it were us who owed them money.

  166. Angela on Fri, 22nd Jul 2011 6:44 pm 

    Filed my return with 1st time home owners credit on Feb. 1, 2011 and here it is July 23rd and I am still waiting for me refund. I have provided pages and pages of documentation and they still can’t tell me anything – what is going on???

  167. Bill on Tue, 26th Jul 2011 9:04 am 

    I sent in my refund on April 5, 2011 and 16 weeks later, the IRS is still holding my refund for review. I was told to wait till August, and if I haven’t received a letter stating WHY it was being held, to call back. I have called pretty much every week for the last 2 months, and I have been given every story you can imagine. Who do I need to contact to get these creeps to send me my money? Are there any laws that say they have to send me a letter withing a certain time frame stating WHY they are holding it? I keep getting told give them 45 days every time I call. What then? Do I just keep giving them 45 days? I sure hope they plan on paying me interest on this money they are holding… the pricks

  168. IRS SUCKS on Fri, 5th Aug 2011 10:07 am 

    For the first time in my life I didn’t file an extension when filing my tax return this year. My accountant filed it in March 2011. Now it’s August and STILL have the same code. I called the IRS once. They told me NOTHING.. but, and I’m being literal, “your taxes are under review. You can call back in 6 weeks.” FREAKING LOSERS! You told me nothing. What a waste of our hard earned money goes to these monkeys taking the calls. I think I will lower all of my deductions so that I OWE THEM! Then they I have the power. Terrible.

  169. Latisha DeShield on Tue, 16th Aug 2011 4:35 pm 

    I filed my return back in january 2010. It is now August 2011 I still haven’t received my refund check. I have been evicted from two apartments already lost my car and Im on the verge of being evicted again. All of 2010 was a tremendous struggle for me and my child,I am a single mom as Im sure alot of most are, I thought we would be ok when tax season came but our situations got worst. Its so discourging and depressing to feel so helplessless and confused as to what to do. At first I was angry about the whole situation but now Im just to the point where I have to move on and try and pick up the pieces of my life. To all of those who are still waiting MAY GOD BLESS YOU..Live for the day and let tomorrow worry about tomorrow as I have learned to do. The whole world is in a total mess. Do what you can do and put the rest in a higher powers hands.Again God Bless To ALL Peace Happiness and Love..

  170. Amanda on Wed, 17th Aug 2011 9:01 am 

    The IRS has serious issues this year. I filed in Jan, they received 2/16.

    Still waiting!

    several hours on the phone (most on hold) and no one knows why, but their answer is always wait another 30 days and call back.

    IRS…. fix this, I need my refund!

  171. linda rohm on Thu, 18th Aug 2011 4:52 am 

    I was told my refund would be May 1st. It is now 3rd week of August,still no refund in sight. what is going on?

  172. Teresa on Thu, 25th Aug 2011 3:24 pm 

    Last year we got our tax return within 11 weeks. We file married-jointly but also have to file injured spouse. It normally takes up to 11 weeks so that is what we expected. The irs page has shown “1201″ for 11 weeks now.. when called before they said it would be here Aug 22nd (monday) because that would be 11 weeks.. well just today it finally changed on the irs page saying “8002″.. i don’t even know exactly what that means? CAP did my taxes this year..we did file late though so i don’t know if that has anything to do with it.. Irs told us they can not tell us anything except could take up to 3 more weeks..a lawyer told me they can with hold for awhile but will start racking up interest? I am so frusterated and confused.. if we did not need that money (for rent and such) than it would not be a big deal.. how long have you guys been waiting? Anyone else file an injured spouse?

  173. southpaw on Wed, 7th Sep 2011 9:44 am 

    I did my wife’s tax return the day before they opened the doors for taxes and sept still nothing with no reason just they need another 30days they need a person to look into this wile they collect intreset on our money

  174. Paul on Fri, 9th Sep 2011 7:19 am 

    There seems to be enough of us out there who are getting screwed by the IRS to have a class action lawsuit against these mother&#^#*#’s !! has anyone considered the idea?
    My story is the same as everyone else’s so I’m not going to expound on it, but what I think “WE THE PEOPLE” need to do is act against this useless yet all so powerful arm of the government that seems to makes up the rules as the game is being played !!
    By The way…. Has anyone FINALLY received any money yet ??

  175. Stone Mountain on Fri, 9th Sep 2011 12:00 pm 

    I’m having the same damn problem. On hold now. I was told back in Feb. when i filed because someone made up a fake w2 in my name and used my ssn they had already been paid and i had to wait 6 mths because that’s how long they can hold my money until the verify who i am. I gave them a copy of my birth certificate and ssn card along with information from my perviouse job and a copy of the national clearence paperwork i had to have for my previous job. I am also looking for a large amount back and yes i am unemployed with 5 children 3 in college. So i’m all for suing they ass. Oh my god after holding for 20 mins I was just told the system was down and they would have to return my call in 30 days unless I have a general question, but it could not be about my account. BS.

  176. Glenda on Sat, 10th Sep 2011 12:02 pm 

    I have been waiting since FEB. 2011. Got in touch with the Taxpayers Advocates in June 2010, they said my issue would be resolved in 30 days, here we are NINETY DAYS LATER, NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH!!! I wish I COULD SUE THE IRS!!!! THEY’RE the GOV, they screw you and you can’t do anything but WAIT!!! UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH!!!

  177. Yana on Sun, 18th Sep 2011 3:58 pm 

    I filed my simple 1040EZ return on January 18, 2011. After getting 3 different deposit dates I got delay code 1201 and been stuck with that code. It’s September 18 and I still didn’t get my return or any explanation why it’s delayed. I faxed my paperwork to them 3 times and so far NOTHING!!!!
    And it’s simple 1040EZ return without any credits, deductions, etc…

  178. Anna on Mon, 19th Sep 2011 1:27 am 

    I am so disgusted as I read all this. I filed the 3rd week of januaty and still waiting. They have given me the while book of excuses, and even am advocate who has done mouthing but make the irs not speak to me because I have an advocate. This is ridiculous.

  179. lynn on Wed, 21st Sep 2011 10:53 pm 

    i filed for a tax refund for 2009. i am disabled and took care of my mother in home care. i was told i had to wait for three years for my refund,not make over a certain amount,cannot work, or change anything from my ssi benefits. so i am still waitng and waiting until… they took out taxes from the small pay i received taking care of my mother who has advanced dimentia.she is now in board & care since i cannot take care of her now.i had a knee replacement,and need the other replaced

We were suppost to get our return in 8 to 16 weeks, well 32 weeks later here we are still waiting. From my uderstanding they have until the 30th of this month. We can thank Obama for this, F*ck the IRS and the goverment.

  183. citizen on Wed, 28th Sep 2011 9:00 pm 

    !!!! i have filed my 1040 with schedule c on feb 11 2011 so did my parents ., just now SEPT 29 2011 MY PARENTS GOT THEIR REFUND , IT WAS JUST ON HOLD WITH CODE 1201 , NO REASON WAS GIVEN TO US AT ALL WHY THE DELAY . BUT IM STILL WAITING FOR MINE.!!!!

    BOTTOM LINE ., IRS AND US GOV HAVE NO MONEY TO PAY US , THATS WHY THEY CANT PROVIDE A SPECIFIC REASON FOR THE DELAY ….IMAGINE IF THEY TOLD PUBLIC …SORRY WE GOT NO $$$ IT WOULD START A PANIC…..

    I REALLY WISH SOME1 WOULD REPORT THIS TO THE MEDIA ALREADY …IT SUX ……ITS ALMOST TIME TO FILE FOR 2011 TAXES AND SOME OF US DID NOT GET 2010 CHECK YET !!!

    BUT TO ANSWER SOME PEOPLE QUESTION , WE DID GET THE MONEY 8MONTHS LATER AND WITH NO EXPLANATION FOR THE DELAY ..ALSO IRS NEVER ASKED FOR ANY ADDITIONAL PAPERWORK….IT SEEMS ..THEY JUST BROKE.!!!

  184. FEDUPWITHIRS on Tue, 4th Oct 2011 8:03 am 

    My husband and I filed our taxes on Jan. 29,2100 at H&R Block, it was rejected 7 days later. I called the IRS, they said have them run it through again, well it was rejected again 7 days later. I called the IRS back again, and was told to mail in a paper copy of my return. HERE BEGINS THE NIGHTMARE!!!! I waited to hear from the IRS about the problem, but they never notified me, so I called them, and was told that MY identity was stolen for the tax year 2010! I was told it was under investigation, and that I would be notified in 90 days (YES 3 MONTHS), well never got any sort of notification, so I called them back. Was told to mail or fax all of my identifications, Drivers License, Social Security Card, Birth Certificate, and Military ID. I faxed all of that on May 5th, and YES they received it! When I called to make sure they received it, I was told I would be notified within 7-10 business days, NOTHING again! I called back on June 13, 2011, and was told again.. I would be notified.. by August 2, 2011, and AGAIN.. NOTHING.. I called again on August 2, 2011, and was told I should be contacted by a identity theft caseworker within 7 days.. AGAIN.. NOTHING.. I waited until September 8, 2011 to call back, and this time I was drilled with questions as to who I was, then I was told that my identity had been verified by my caseworker, and she said while we were on the phone, she was emailing them to go ahead and release my check, and I would hear something within 3 weeks.. AGAIN.. NOTHING… so I called back this morning… was drilled with questions again, and my caseworker told me that she was sending another email to have them release my check.. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE FEBRUARY, THIS IS NOW OCTOBER.. SO EXPLAIN TO ME WHY IT IS TAKING SO LONG, WHEN THEY HAVE A COPY OF EVERY PIECE OF IDENTITY MATERIAL I OWN. I was told I am going to be red flagged for the next three years, I asked her if I would receive this refund before getting 2011′s refund, and her answer was “that is not the goal we are striving for” HA! She told me they pay interest on the refund, but I do not know how much that interest is. It is not a HUGE refund, but my husband has had 3 heart attacks in 16 months, the last one only 2 months ago, so the money would come in handy right about now.. or even back in March!!! Good luck to everyone trying to get their money.. more so if your identity has been stolen because the case worker told me they had a record number of identity thefts this year!

  185. sharon on Tue, 4th Oct 2011 10:58 am 

    Mailed return 2-22-2011 they received it 2-26-2011 still waiting for refund, have talked to 6 different people and no one has a clue as to what is going on, suppose to get a call within 30 days as of 10-3-2011 Yeah Right! My take is someone is not doing their F-ing job!

  186. Ashley D. on Fri, 7th Oct 2011 4:14 pm

  187. Annabel Morales on Fri, 7th Oct 2011 5:50 pm 

    I am on the border of a crises. Financial struggles after a divorce and job situation. I need this refund to pay my property tax and with little hope of getting it soon. If we were the ones that owe them we would have probably be arrested by now. Maybe jail wouldnt be that bad. Free housing and food. Now I understand why some people lie and steal from the government, because they do it to us. Who can help???????

    Never deal with the IRS except by FEDEX or by having your lawyer talk to them.
    File all returns by FEDEX – it is the only way that you and they can both precisely confirm receipt of the material, and very important for refund interest calculations, the date of receipt.
    I am still waiting for my 2009 refund.

    I got my First Time Homebuyer’s refund! I previously posted on 6-14-11 about my delays with the IRS. I just wanted to let everyone know how long it took me to get the refund.

    I filed in February and just received the money by direct deposit in my bank on 10-7-11. I had no idea it was being sent to me, the last letter I got from the IRS was in September saying my taxes were still being reviewed.

    The “where’s my refund” site still had the same message since I filed, we are waiting for documentation, you will receive a letter in 30 days…blah, blah, blah. My husband checked our bank account on Friday and there was $8,145 from the IRS. Apparently the extra $145 is interest. We are still in shock.

    I checked the “where’s my refund” just to see if the message has changed and it’s a new message now saying our taxes are delayed, code 1201, still being reviewed but the money is there. So don’t trust the message on thier site, it’s not the most accurate info. Took us 8 months of sending and resending documents, delay after delay and finally we have our money. Don’t lose hope, you will get your money.

    wow Kim thank you for sharing your story it gives me hope that the end of this is near we have been waiting for our refund since 01/11 but we dont have any first time home credit our problem has to do with identity theft I am 7 and half months pregnant and we need this money to buy everything for the baby so lets hope and pray that we get our money before this month is over.

  191. Jen on Thu, 13th Oct 2011 5:55 pm 

    Same story; filed in March, delayed, called IRS, delayed, 3 different letters from IRS all with DIFFERENT DATES to expect progress on our claim (!!!), delayed, called tax advocate, faxed paperwork, faxed more paperwork, delayed. Now they say he didn’t work at one of his jobs even though we sent in the W2?!?!?
    Husband was laid off in September; we barely have two pennies to rub together, and our feedback from the advocate
    (since we are not allowed to communicate with the IRS anymore)
    “DELAYED!”.
    Are they holding on to the tax refund so we’ll all lose our new houses, so they don’t have to pay the credit??

    My wife and I filed last year married-separate due to a bankruptcy she filed on her old debt. Due to the filing she owed taxes and set up a payment plan. This year we filed married-jointly on Feb 19, 2011 with a CPA highly recommended using e-file. We are still waiting for the return. There was a delay because my wife owed 2 more payments when we filed to satisfy her owed taxes last year but those are in the system as being fulfilled. We know this because we call atleast every other week. We have gotten no information as to timeframe or current hold up on the return. The delay has always been a 1201 code meaning all other etc…anyone have a clue as to what I am in for and how long? This is ridiculous especially considering the system shows everything is in order.

    I efiled IRS accepted 10.17.2011 with deposit date 11.1.2011. That date changed to 11.22.2011 then Tuesday changed to process delays reference code 1201. It’s been 4 weeks now and I haven’t gotten any letters or error codes. Can anyone give me some piece of mind?

  195. Geeyah on Tue, 22nd Nov 2011 11:58 am 

    I was told that IRS was broke by a government employee. I have been waiting for over 7 months and I have been told that they can’t find my paperwork, my birthdate was incorrect, they have moved, did I sent my paperwork to the wrong address. In one instant I was told that I didn’t exist and it was my preparer’s fault. I am so frustrated. I am out of work and have been for 3 years. The tax refund was for my car note and mortgage. I have been given so many excuses, it is unreal. If you owned IRS, they would send agents to have you arrested. They are deliberately holding large amounts. I am owed 1200.00. Others are owed thousands, especially home owner credits. They encourage you to purchase a home and then they cheat you out of your return. That’s the government for you. Pay them, and they won’t pay you! What will they do when taxes for 2011 be filed. It will be a bigger mess and you will be lucky if you get any refund. Next year, I will not file for a refund, get all my money upfront. You all should do the same.

  196. Yana on Wed, 23rd Nov 2011 7:55 am 

    Still waiting for my 1040EZ refund since January 18. No letters, no explanations from IRS, no request for information-nothing. Same stupid answer every time I call: it’s being processed” Well, it’s being processed for 11 months allready.
    Stupid 1201 delay code and no idea when I will get my money

  197. Marco on Sat, 3rd Dec 2011 10:48 am 

    I can’t believe so many people have the same problem as me. I submitted mine on Feb 2011 everytime I checked since then it says code 1201. I’ve had contact with them and so far they made me send all my paperwork again 3 times already and still nothing. Nobody tells me what’s wrong. Are you kidding me. Today is December 3 2011 and still NOTHING, no status , no explanation. They owe me the First Buyer home credit and my normal refund. Rediculous. I remember 2 years ago I owe $1,600 and kept sending me letters of how they will ruin my credit if I didn’t pay fast. Threat letters. But when they owe you, they will take there Sweat Time. And we cant do anything about it. I even opened a case with IRS Advocate, and it’s BS. After the first call my advocate won’t even answer my calls, everytime I call it goes to there voicemail. that’s BS!
    If anybody has any progress I would like to know.

    What happens when next years comes and have to file without receiving this years tax? What Happens? Waiting since February and nothing, no reason , nothing. How do I file next years taxes when they can’t get this year right?

    IRS is crooked!

  199. THS on Wed, 7th Dec 2011 8:00 pm 

    FYI…
    My SSN was stolen by some chick in Miami, Florida, She filed using my social. I was supposed to get my monies in March still nothing. But I had to call and be persistent, I get a letter every 30 days on the status of my monies, plus I call them once a month for a status update.
    Just a little tidbit if they owe you monies, they should pay you interest. That’s what I was told.

  200. laura on Tue, 20th Dec 2011 12:42 pm 

    Hi I have a question if someone could please help me. I filed my taxes late on Nov. 22nd and finally online it said it was being processed and I shouldrecieve my refund my Jan 17th if there was no delays and I didn’t owe any taxes. I looked online today and it now say there was processing delays and I should now receive it by Feb. 21 how can I have delays I went down to the IRS building and they lady did my taxes so it should have been correct right? I don’t owe any taxes either so what could be the problem? Sorry this is the first time I’ve evr filed so I don’t know to much about this just don’t understand how they can set the expected date over a month later doesn’t make sense

  201. Mary on Tue, 27th Dec 2011 4:02 pm 

    Ok finally got my refund yes on 12-27-11 after someone used my ss# to attempt id theft on me, now when will I get the interest due me after the 45 days?? it’s been well over 160 days of interest.

  202. Mary on Tue, 27th Dec 2011 4:03 pm 

    and Yes I was told they must pay interest after 45 days, ok then when will I see that?

  203. Jerry Miller on Wed, 4th Jan 2012 6:07 am 

    We started recieving IRS dunns in the mail in the middle of 2011. Our tax man explained he did our taxes from the IRS updates and they we giving us no explanation for wanting more money. He wrote of a letter on our behalf asking for an explanation for the less that $200and rising). They ignored our letters and started threatening us with property seizure if the money wasn’t paid. We finally got a certified letter and another threat. So we mailed in the money. Is that how they are going to fund the government????? How many other tax law abiding citizens got letters just like this?????

  204. brenda on Sat, 21st Jan 2012 5:27 am 

    the irs page said that if you transmitted your taxes by jan 17 th or the 18th by 11 a m that your projected date to recieve your direct deposit is no later than jan 25 th 2012…2 days later after transmitting we got a message that the cash won’t be direct deposited until jan 31 st 2012…..is history repeating its self this year in 2012? i surely hope not…

  205. Crystal on Tue, 24th Jan 2012 6:46 am 

    History is definately repeating its self my refund was supposed to be here on the 25th as well then changed to the 31st then to feb 1st and now feb7th I paid extra for the rac from hr block what a waste of money!

  206. bobbie on Tue, 24th Jan 2012 10:07 am 

    Mine too Crystal, exactly the same thing. And at the IRS website it has a message saying they’re experiencing problems.

  207. Karen on Tue, 24th Jan 2012 12:36 pm 

    Bobbie and Crystal the same happened to me! I actually filed on January 13th and had my return accepted on January 16 with an original date of a direct deposit on January 25th. This morning I learned my refund has been delayed due to a processing delay. I called IRS and spoke with a live person who checked my return and said that it was being processed and that the delay was due to the large volume of tax returns being processed. Her exact words were, “the computers are only capable of recieving so much information each day, you know how computers do” Although I would love to take her word for it, I have read several horror stories of others this has happened to where people were given extended refund dates only to later find there has been an error with their return or that their return is being reviewed. Some of these people had to wait nearly a year before seeing their tax refund.

  208. Yesenia on Tue, 24th Jan 2012 4:35 pm 

    I am a tax preparer and this is a nightmare… now I have to tell my customers they aren’t getting the funds they were expecting for 2 more weeks! The IRS is quick to send out letters and charge interest if you don’t file your taxes every year but they can’t deposit your funds on time?!

  209. laura on Wed, 25th Jan 2012 6:57 am 

    Right now the Where’s your refund page is stating as follows…. We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by January 31, 2012.

    It should from my experience change sometime today which is Wed. I have seen in past years that it always changes on Wed. Last year it changed, but it changed to a later date. Don’t rely on your refund until you see the words your direct deposit will be deposite on “so and so date” the processing stuff that is showing right now is not a confirmation of direct deposit.

  210. molly on Wed, 25th Jan 2012 11:03 pm 

    well i filed my taxes on the 5th and they were accepted on the 17th . the irs and turbo tax said i should receive my refund by the 25th well no refund yet , and when i check the irs “wheres my refund” it says they have already deposited the $. my card has no tax money on it . this is frustrating waiting for the money when it was suppose to already be here .;

  211. dianetaylor on Thu, 26th Jan 2012 10:43 am 

    Hey i filed my taxes on the 18th of Jan. will my taxes be delayed from tha 27th of Jan. I really need answer.

  212. VictoriaTrough on Thu, 26th Jan 2012 3:49 pm 

    Filed my taxes in Feb. I’m a student who doesn’t have enough time to work more hours, therefore I do not make what I need to pay for classes AND books. Apparently, my SSN was used to file befor I filed my own (Identity Theft). I am completely livid. It is now Jan 2012 and after months and months of me sending them the same info. They even sent one letter to the criminal’s fake address! They claim that they are finally processing(which was over a month ago). Before, I was transferred to the Tax Advocate’s, which is the biggest joke, and the woman I was given has never answered her phone, lost my info, and never calls back. I am currently on the phone with the IRS (holding for 30 min) then transferred to another dept. This dept said that I shouldn’t have been transferred here so now i’m on hold yet again for 30 min. I need to buy art supplies and books. I have no idea what to do. I’m 19, this was my first return and I feel as if I’m being pushed around.

  213. Cathreen on Fri, 27th Jan 2012 7:06 am 

    In same boat “tax return has been delayed” was expecting on 25th, then 31st, then this messgae we will see. So could we get lawyers…I mean the IRS says in their :so sweet: little video that they like to settle more than go to court does this persist with tax returns to?

  214. misty on Sat, 28th Jan 2012 6:00 am 

    Ok I efiled our taxes on january 7. Was shown it was accepted and is processing should be deposited January 31. I checked it last night online and it is telling me they have not got it yet. WTH. So I called and got the automated service and it is still saying the 31st, Does anyone know whats up

  215. Karen on Sat, 28th Jan 2012 12:12 pm 

    Misty…not sure whats up but I can tell you that you won’t have your refund by the 31st. The irs is depositing on weds…jan 25th was first date which has already passed..feb 1st is the next date the irs is depositing.

  216. Karen on Sat, 28th Jan 2012 2:41 pm 

    @Misty….I checked my status just now and it is doing the same thing to me. It says they cannot give me any information regarding my refund. It went from being deposited by feb 7 to we cannot provide any information regarding my refund. Ohh well…there is obviously a problem some where. I’m sure they’ll notify me of it once they figure it out.

  217. lacey on Sat, 28th Jan 2012 8:55 pm 

    Misty and Karen samething here. it told me feb 7th 2012 and now its saying they cannot give me any info please call and use reference code 9001…..AnYBODY else have that problem ?

  218. Stephanie on Sat, 28th Jan 2012 9:48 pm 

    Hey guys, if you got the processing, 2/21/12 status.. come on over to our facebook page, we’ll keep each other updated and share info:

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/?Club-21/198354646929764

  219. Michelle on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 4:36 am 

    What is really going on??? Yesterday my IRS status said that my return is scheduled to be deposited on January 31,2012. Now when I checked, the date changed to a message stating something different with no date and saying the return is being processed! What’s the problem??? It says if you filed a complete and accurate return it should be within 6 weeks…. Wow!!!!!

  220. Shonda on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 8:02 am 

    My taxes were acknowledged and accepted by the IRS on January 17th, 2012. The efile chart says I was supposed to get it on the 25th, but the chart also says to allow 5 extra days for processing. So like the WMR website it ssid January 31st would be when I should receive mine by (5 days more). Yesterday it couldnt find my information, now it tells me I have a Direct Deposit date of February 1st, 2012 and if I do not receive it by the 6th to call the IRS, and they cannot do anything until then. This is just BS. They are trying to say the delay is because there were way more refunds received the first week than expected. COME ON! SERIOUSLY, this happens every year, when are they going to come up with another excuse? They just need to admit they are messing with peoples money. Can I say on I have bills this week to pay so my taxes will need more time for processing?

  221. Shonda on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 8:09 am 

    *Karen, they do not just update on wednesdays. Mine just updated this morning (Sunday) It just depends. I been looking at alot of blogs about this and I have heard that there is a new program the IRS is trying out this year that receives processes the returns and coould be what is causing the delay. I had got an email saying my refund was processing through MeF Service Center.

  222. jennifer on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 3:11 pm 

    the irs is doing additional verification this year of information provided on your tax papers. They found that there have been people stealing social security numbers, and using a deceased person’s social security number, and claiming kids that aren’t there’s, so they are verifying the information, making sure the person doing the taxes is alive and so forth. The dates have changed for the refunds, from the 25 to the 1st, and so on. Everyone should relax and you’ll get your tax return by this wed, next wed etc….

  223. jennifer on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 3:14 pm 

    also if you constantly are checking your information on the irs website, you will get an error message saying there is not history of your take return and they will ask you to re-enter your information. DONT! Wait another day, it will show back up that you information is being processed and the date of anticipated release

  224. David B on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 3:20 pm 

    my return has been in the processing stage from jan 19,2012 until last night Sunday Jan 29, 2012. they are saying via the phone system that my refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on Feb 1,2012. Good news since that was the first major update that ive heard in 10 days. the website is showing that i dont even exist lol go figure

  225. David B on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 7:39 pm 

    JUST got my refund on my NETSPEND card. I guess they are processing refunds even on Sunday Night.

  226. Brian T on Mon, 30th Jan 2012 7:20 am 

    Well another tax year. Filed on Feb 17. Refund held up yet again this year. Called on 01/30/2012 to find out wth is going on. Its due to the Homebuyers Tax Credit Repayment. The system is again rejecting returns. Places them in review status for a person to actually review. Should take 45 days to complete.

  227. Meliss on Mon, 30th Jan 2012 8:32 am 

    Our return was accepted Jan 17. We owed from 2009. Now we have been delayed. On Jan 27 we received a bill. Eventhough the IRS received our return and has a refund much greater than what we owe, they are still charging us penalties and interest. Is that the real reason they won’t deduct what’s owed from our refund? So they can continue to penalize us?? That’s just wrong.

  228. lacey on Mon, 30th Jan 2012 8:58 am 

    After further investigation i found that the Reference code 9001, just means there is an error in the system. Filed on 1/18/12 , the irs first said the 7th , then i got the error code 9001 and was told to call, NOW the irs says my refund will be direct depo on Feb 1st !!!

  229. May Y on Mon, 30th Jan 2012 11:47 am 

    Was suppose to receive my refund a little over 2800 dollars. Filed on the 17th and accepted on the 19th. today i check and IRS website is now stating refunds cancelled and balance of 2706 owed to the IRS??? called the IRS two times today and got NOWHERE!!! finally irs website shows ill be getting a letter on Feb 7th as to why. until then nothing i can do. very upsetting to think your getting money but even worse to owe what you thought you were getting and nobody knows why. not to mention the letter is 9 days away and refund was suppose to be in my acct Friday. Ridiculous!!!

  230. Brian T on Mon, 30th Jan 2012 3:49 pm 

    Well May Y, the IRS is as organized as a preschool classroom. Did you have the HomeBuyers Tax Credit. If that’s the case you might as well as wait until late april-may for your refund. Their own mess up. Form 5405 didn’t have to be filed, but they never fixed that and so It rejects everyone’s return. It takes a person to actually do the return and most auditors in that departments according to a little bird, don’t start working them until April 23rd. So figure end of April/May for your refund once its corrected. Welcome to the IRS!

  231. Michelle B on Tue, 31st Jan 2012 6:28 am 

    Filed on the 19th and still getting the same message… still processing! How long does it take for it to process? Looks like I wont be getting my DD on Feb 1 like TT told me. I just wanting to see my info update does anyone know how long that takes?

  232. Brian T on Tue, 31st Jan 2012 6:35 pm 

    Regardless of what the tax software tells you, normal processing time is 3 weeks. You can get it earlier if you file like a 1040EZ. But normally takes 3 weeks. Check on Wednesday they update the refund system on Wednesdays and Mondays.
    the 19th should get your money on the 15th DD or 17th for a Check.

  233. Terri on Thu, 2nd Feb 2012 4:03 pm 

    I started our nightmare of trying to get the FTHB tax credit 1 year ago. I have sent to paperwork at least 10 times (and have every receipt to prove it!)
    I got a tax advocate – worthless waste of time!!! I spent 7 months being jerked around by my “advocate” just to be told today that I would have to file an appeal.
    This a a total crock of bull. Has anyone had any luck with any other avenues??
    Really sick of this. They would be beating down my door if I owed them money…HELP!

  234. Elizabeth on Fri, 3rd Feb 2012 9:13 pm 

    I’m really heartbroken over a;; this i to filed on Jan.13 2012 givin a Jan.25 dd to having it change again to Jan.1 then again to Feb.1 and yet again another dd of Feb.7, i’m not at all heartbroken for myself by not getting my refund or even that i payed H&R Block nearly 200.00 to take care of getting me my money but for my 16 tear old son who was depending on me and the refund to get him to homestead to see his father who had been very ill for 4 weeks was put in the hospital 9 days ago where he passed away and no my son never made it there to see him i felt ashamed for not having the money to send him you know i cried like a baby when he said mom your not to blame,I am a single mother w/ 3 teens and our tax refund let’s us have one whole month out of the year without struggling, i wish everyone luck & I hope everything works out for all of us that are still waiting!! Elizabeth

  235. Elizabeth on Fri, 3rd Feb 2012 9:15 pm 

    Opps typo above on the Jan. 1 date should be Jan. 31, good night all:)

  236. Heather on Sun, 5th Feb 2012 12:43 pm 

    I efiled my return on Jan 30 and was accepted the same night by the IRS. Checked status on the following Wed and said funds should be deposited by Feb 14. Now, I am getting reference code 9001 and was told when I called the IRS that return was received and is being processed. Does anyone know what this REALLY Means and when I could expect my refund?

  237. Rachel on Sun, 5th Feb 2012 3:12 pm 

    It seems a lot of people scheduled for a date of 2/14 are getting 9001 codes. Not too sure what that means.

  238. lissa on Sun, 5th Feb 2012 4:43 pm 

    I have a similar situation, I was given a DD of 2/3 and checked status today and it said your refund has been received and is being processed and if it was an accurate return ill receive it in up to 6 weeks

  239. Shawna on Sun, 5th Feb 2012 5:49 pm 

    I just received the same reference code 9001. We filed 01/31. I know that we owe taxes from last year though, so I am guessing they’ve pulled ours for review so they can subtract the debt we owe them and then issue our return. I just hope it doesn’t delay it a long time!!

  240. Tim on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 4:57 am 

    I too received the same ref number 9001. and filed on 01/31. I just got off the phone with an IRS Rep at 7:53am (called at 7:06am and was on hold for the longest) after reviewing my account he stated. “A lot of people who filed at the end of January are being pushed into their “NEW” system even if you had a previous date for direct deposit”. Which I did for 2/14. He said it’s still processing as “NEW” because it was pushed into their “NEW” system they are trying out this year. And to check back in the middle or end of the week as it will update.

  241. Ronda on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 5:51 am 

    Same thing exactly happened to me. But when I called about it today the first lady told me that the IRS didn’t even have my return. And that just because hr block said it was accepted doesn’t mean it was. And to try back in a week.

    So I hung up and called again. This time I was toldr that they had it but didn’t show that I was supposed to have it direct deposited. They said according to the chart that I should have my deposit on the 8th but that since its not showing up that it would be a week later.. The 14th. Which was the date the website originally said. He also said that the system should update eventually and if it doesn’t to call again

  242. LaTisha on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 8:14 am 

    I filed on 01/30/2012 and my e-file was accepted with an expected deposit date of 02/08/2012. Well when I went to check the status it changed from 02/08/12 to 02/14/2012. As of today its at 02/21/2012 and they say that may be because of the FTHBC that I have to payback. So who knows when i’ll get my money. Praying I’ll get it soon by 02/14/2012.

    I am really not liking the new system nor the FTHBC repayment process because of all the delays. They should get all of this situated before tax season.

  243. Seth on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 8:16 am 

    We also were scheduled for a Feb 14th deposit, but when I looked this morning to see if the status had updated, we also get the 9001 code.

    I tried to call a few times this morning, but a recording said (at ext 362) that they were really busy and to call back mid week.

    I am hoping this is just a temp. delay and that it does not take forever to get the refund back or get delayed due to an audit. Frustrating when they say one thing, then tell you do call somewhere to find out, then have a recording to tell you that you can’t talk to anyone for a few days. Imagine a business running that way.

  244. Sarah on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 10:12 am 

    I filed my tax return E-file on January 30, 2012. It was accepted on January 31, 2012. On February 2, 2012 I checked the WMR status and I was expected to receive my refund on February 14, 2012. I checked WMR on the IRS website yesterday and I also have the 9001 code.

    I called the IRS today and was given a different number to call 800-829-0582 ext 462. I spoke with Ms. Hernandez. She advised me that the IRS has a new system to thwart out identity theft. It is taking longer for the returns to process. She told me not to worry she is getting TONS of calls today just like mine. It seems not only the early tax return filers are having a delay (January 7-26) but now everyone is affected. More than likely I will receive my return (1040EZ file) by February 21, 2012 or the 28th at the latest. This brings it to the 3 week time frame the IRS tells us to expect.

    The one thing I am doing this year? I am claiming “1″ on my W-4 with my employer. If anyone is going to screw up my money it is me! :)

  245. renee johnson on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 10:47 am 

    Filed 1/15 accepted 1/17 taxact projected dd date of 1/25 moved to 1/31 then 1/21 agent stated was a delay would get it by the 7th if not call back then changed to no date &processing now received & processing & 6 week if accurate will receive in

  247. Tessa on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 11:34 am 

    I have been checking the IRS site every day to get refund status it has been fine and stating, We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Unless there is a processing delay or you owe other taxes, you should receive your refund by February 14, 2012. I checked under my husbands ssn all this time, and under his it states what it says below about code 9001, but under my ssn (spouse) it says what it has been saying for him, for days. I dont know why I say one thing and his says another. He is the primary on our return and I am the spouse.

    Now today husbands (primary) says:

    Renee You are so right im going through the same buldshit!! The IRS people are not humane!! they told me my return is incomplete after 1 Month Ive efiled and im in the limbo.

  249. Tessa on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 12:02 pm 

    Just spoke to IRS. Looks like the 9001 is due to a delay in the processing because of their new system. There is no exact date for my anticipated refund deposit at this time. This is very frustrating… Hoping that the deposit by the 14th of February still applies.

  250. Brandi on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 12:24 pm 

    Hey Tessa, i filed my taxes on the 31st of july an mine says the same thing under my husbands when i go an check…my sister did her an then she got a letter sayin it would be delayed but then that never happen an she got it on time…i’m suppose to get mine the 10th…but at this point i don’t care if the only problem i have is it just being delayed, but it is frustrating when u are expecting it to come…:/

  251. Brandi on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 12:32 pm 

    Hey Tessa, i filed my taxes on the 31st of jan an mine says the same thing under my husbands when i go an check…my sister did her an then she got a letter sayin it would be delayed but then that never happen an she got it on time…i’m suppose to get mine the 10th…but at this point i don’t care if the only problem i have is it just being delayed, but it is frustrating when u are expecting it to come…:/

  252. Tim on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 4:12 pm 

    Yes it is frustrating. My Fiancé filed through Turbo Tax on the 28th of Jan and I was on the 29th* (*correction before stated the 31st and both accepted within 30 minutes from the IRS)and set up for Direct Deposit. She just had her return deposited on the 4th. When she originally had a date for dd on 2/14 like I did then hers was switched to 2/6. And mine now is still showing the code 9001 as said earlier but I will check back later on this week to see if it updates.

  253. andrew on Mon, 6th Feb 2012 6:01 pm 

    yes to all of the 9001′s there is a 3 week delay on everyones refund when i say everyone the whole U.S. is in a delay the irs system is having problems switching to the new system but was told it should not take more then 3 weeks.

  254. courtney on Tue, 7th Feb 2012 12:20 am

    The IRS has opened its filing season successfully this month, and refunds have started going out to many taxpayers. As with the start of any tax season, there are system validations that occur requiring some fine-tuning of our systems. As part of this, some taxpayers will receive refunds approximately one week later than initial projections they may have received, but these are still in line with historical refund delivery times.

    The IRS reminds taxpayers that refund time frames provided by “Where’s My Refund” and tax providers are projected time frames and are subject to revision. Many different factors can affect the timing of the refund after the IRS receives the return for processing. The IRS apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the revised refund dates.

    When the IRS announced the opening of the 2012 filing season, it advised taxpayers who electronically file and select direct deposit that they could see their refunds in as few as 10 days and 90 percent of refunds are provided within 21 days. Some taxpayers are getting refunds much faster, but at this time taxpayers should expect refunds to be issued as indicated in the original IRS guidelines.

    The one-week delay for some refunds relates to fine-tuning IRS systems to adjust for new safeguards put in place this tax season to provide stronger protection against refund fraud. The IRS is providing additional screening for fraud this year before issuing refunds, but the vast majority of taxpayers can still continue to expect to receive their refunds in a timely fashion.

  259. Ken on Wed, 8th Feb 2012 6:47 am 

    Man, I guess I feel better that Im not the only one having issues. I filed on 1/21/12, was accepted on 1/22/12. WMR says my refund was deposited on 2/6/12, today is 2/8/12 and Im still waiting for a direct deposit. My bank has no info and Im reluctant to call the IRS, based on some of the testimonials here.

    Hopefully sometime today.

  260. Lance on Wed, 8th Feb 2012 7:58 am 

    I used turbo tax and I got a 9001 code from irs.. I called this number 1800 717 7228 and it said my deposit date is 2/15… I filed on 1/31.. hope this helps!

  261. shenitra on Wed, 8th Feb 2012 2:26 pm 

    Hello everyone, im having the same problem my return was filed on january 30, and was accepted at 9:42 am. I checked wmr 2 days later they told me to except a refund on 2/14. now I can see shitttt! I’m really really mad I got bills to pay and kids to feed!!!!!

  262. Aquil on Wed, 8th Feb 2012 2:53 pm 

    Wow Some of these comments on here smh. As we all Know the refunds are being delayed and yes it’s a pain. It seems we all have the same issue. But the smart thing is. not to spend money or make plans for something without your refund in your account or hand first. It only makes sense (cents).

  263. April on Thu, 9th Feb 2012 2:08 am 

    Ken

    If WMR already shows that it was deposited I would call, Usually that means that it has already sent to the bank, you might want to check to make sure that you have given the correct ABA and account numbers. Because something seems funny about your situation.

  264. jennifer on Thu, 9th Feb 2012 5:21 am 

    I filed with turbo tax on 1/17 and was accepted by the irs on 1/19. The first dd date I received was for 1/25 then it changed to 2/21 then to 2/14. When I checked last night it changed again to 2/7. Also two days ago I received a letter stating that my return was being held for review because I claimed an education credit. I am a second year student in college. What I am confused about is why after receiving the letter would my dd date keep changing? It just doesnt make any sense to me at all. That money is owed to me and you would think that the IRS would have had all these kinks figured out before the tax season started. Guess the IRS is just as messed up as the rest of our government!

  265. delylah on Thu, 9th Feb 2012 6:17 am 

    Ken
    Mine also said that it was deposited on 2/6 i called and all my information is correct irs said that the bank maybe is holding the refund that its takes up to 5 days to release bank said the dont hold anything and the havent receive it or no scheduled to receive any deposit

  266. tom on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 1:02 am 

    Irs sucks. I pay taxes all year. Give me my money.

  267. Lori H on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 6:19 am 

    I filed my taxes on 01/30, initially WMR stated a refund date of 02/14. Like everyone else, I have been getting the 9001 code for about 10 LONG days, but today (02/10) when I checked WMR I have an anticipated DD date of 02/14. Hang in there people, the 9001 code does go away!

  268. S.LOPEZ on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 6:26 am 

    sounds like this is going on a lot right now, im guessing the IRS just doesn’t know what is going on over there. my e-file was accepted on Jan 31, 2012 with a DD date of 2/8, money never showed. I called and waited forever to speak to someone who told me they have been experiencing delays and that it was being “processed”. The website for ‘where’s my refund’ kept giving me an error when I entered in my husbands social which should have been primary and stating that they had no information at this time. After I read what the others posted on here I tried my social and it says it is being processed and should arrive on Feb 14th if no taxes are owed and there are no processing delays. I really hope it comes because my husband took off days of work and we planned a vaca to leave next Wed which will all be called off if I do not receive this refund. I have never experienced any delays in getting my refunds in past years so I did not anticipate this.

  269. S.LOPEZ on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 6:28 am 

    also** both my husband and I claimed educational credits like JENNIFER posted above, I wonder how many other people having these issues have claimed educational credits. This is not the first year I have claimed an educational credit and I have not had any issues in with past refunds.

  270. Tim on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 7:05 am 

    Just following up. I Called yesterday and the Rep said even though I got the 9001 code and the No information at this time message. It is still set up for 2/14 dd. And I just checked the WMR status and it now shows. “Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 14, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 19, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until February 19, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then”.

  271. Terry on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 9:50 am 

    I RECEIVED MY FEDERAL CHEK BUT I HAVENT GOT THE BIG ONE…WITLL I GET IT ?

  272. delylah on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 11:29 am 

    I called today again to the irs fimally the representative told me my check was returned by the bank now i have to wait two week to get a check by mail

  273. Shari B on Fri, 10th Feb 2012 4:34 pm 

    I didn’t get an error code, just that there is no information and to check back in a week. I recvd an email that my efile was accepted on 1/27 and DD was due on 2/08. I did my daughter in laws on 1/31 and had it deposited to my account and it came in on 2/07 to my bank and it was more than my refund. So I don’t understand why she got hers and I haven’t and I ran all the alerts and no flags…don’t understand. I hope it is just delayed.

  274. Gary S on Sun, 12th Feb 2012 1:33 pm 

    I e-filed on 1/28 and accepted the same day and I am still receiving error code 9001 I have friends that filed before and after me but all in the same processing week who also received the same code but today theirs updated with a dd schedule date of 2/15 is anyone that filed around the sane time still getting the error?

  275. kesha on Mon, 13th Feb 2012 9:49 am 

    the irs i wouldve thought would have known to test ther new sytem prior to the filig season, everybody i knw has a reference code of 9001 or is euther sayin they have no info on their return but a few are being given dd dates by the 21st dAY EVEN A FEW HAVE CHANGED TODAY TO THE 15tH

  276. Don't be an idiot on Mon, 13th Feb 2012 1:47 pm 

    Give me a friggin break…don’t be an idiot. The IRS is being
    instructed by this effed up administration to stall because folks…there AIN’T NO MONEY! And, they’re gonna rip you off for every penny that you think you might have coming to you.

  277. Brandi on Mon, 13th Feb 2012 6:57 pm 

    i filed mine on jan 31 an also had the code for a few days then last tues/wed i got a date of feb 21 an it has been like that for a week…don’t understand everyone that has filed theres around then are gettin there’s before me…just very frustrated…in pryer years i’ve never had to wait this long…

    Just an Update as said by IRS my DD was deposited in my Account at 12:12am 2/14/2012 just got the alert on my phone. Filed and accepted 1/31/2012 and DD on 2/14/2012. Even after I got the 9001 code as the date still was the same even when I got the error online saying no information at this time. Some people I know got theirs this past Friday.

  279. yac on Tue, 14th Feb 2012 8:29 pm

  281. jessica on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 6:21 am 

    Filed and accepted on Jan 19. Expected date was 2/7/12, now its 2/16/12 and still nothing. Just says its “being processed” I did get the first time home buyers credit in 2008 and it delayed my being able to file last year. Wonder if that has something to do with it this year. Extremely frustrated and way behind on bills. Ran out of propane yesterday. That’s an additional charge of $75. Not to mention the bank fee for my bounced check.. Seriously, 4 kids and no reason at all to hold my tax return for processing. Wtf?

  282. msboo on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 6:22 am 

    This is CRAZY!! I dont know what is going on I filed mines on 1/31only thing it tells me is they have no info after I call a million times and hold for hours they just say its being processed . I needed this money like yesterday very aggravated and confused tax payer uh……

  283. jessica on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 6:25 am 

    And yes, I realize that I counted my chickens before they hatched, but I have never had an issue like this before. I just filed basic form and a claim form from a couple grand in winnings at the casino. As well as a form to make my fthb payment for this year. Is that so complicated? I haven’t moved, changed my name, switched jobs, NOTHING!!!!

  284. slim on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 9:30 am

  285. Brandi on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 11:59 am

  286. Robert on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 1:15 pm 

    Man I Filed S*** on the 28th of Jan The System Told me the 14th of Feb checked that morning It changed and it said (your Tax Return has been received and is being processed) WTF does that mean… here we Go It’s The 16th and no update about WTF is Going On… My wife is been out of work for a month of a foot injury I’ve Been Trying to hold the fort down but I got bill’s too Pay I’m late on My truck note,bank account in the negative… I’m expecting this Money Too be there and The IRS is Playing Silly Games with This new system They got. If Your S*** Is Right no Illegal games then you should have you money on time… But I guest The Government find Way’s To Play with Your life…

  287. Adriana on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 2:56 pm 

    I have been extremly frustrated with the IRS, just like many of you. My mom and I filed on the Feb 2, and She received her Federal check within 5 business days. I on the other hand, I still havent received my federal the EDD is on the 28th. Yet, my bf just filed last week, and his EDD is the 21st. Im soo frustrated, I called the IRS today, and they said my refund has to be reviewed. (Quality Review) ugh… Not happy about that.

  288. Jamie on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 4:59 pm 

    Just a little info, I filed my taxes and were accepted on 1/27. I was suppose to recieve my refund on 2/7 and then was told I was getting them on 2/15 (which I did). However, they reduced my refund from $8469 to $3692 because there was supposdly math errors from the EIC and an additional child. I spent 4 hours on the phone with turbo tax and we went line by line and gave them all my numbers over the phone and they do not know why my refund went down. I am now waiting for my notice from the IRS before I can call, or that’s what they say. I am very frustrated and irritated because it does not make sense! I am actually getting less this year than last year and I have another child and my job status did not change. Anyone know anything about this??? And any adivce to give me??? Thanks!

  289. chris stone on Thu, 16th Feb 2012 11:46 pm 

    Im pissed off my refund was Feb 21st then was changed to Feb 14th nothing yet and the wmf website crashes every afternoon no answers no nothing wtf! The irs is broke!

Ive already waited now im getting very angry with no answers as to why i havent got my refund its still processing. AMERICANS WANT THERE MONEY NOW! WE PAID OUR TAXES THROUGH THE YEAR GIVE US OUR MONEY BACK! WE WANT OUR MONEY AND ANSWERS NOW! The irs needs to be sued by the American people I’m tired of them taking our money and using it for what. Now they are going to have to borrow money from China again just to give us our refunds i’ll bet. I’m so sick of our debt effecting the people of America. And now that more people live in poverty that means more refunds. Whatever will prob. never see our refund I still havent recieved last years.

  297. SR on Mon, 20th Feb 2012 2:16 am 

    E-Filed feb 3rd with h&r block, didn’t receive confirmation that IRS had received my return so I called around the 13th. Spoke to a nice lady and she informed me that “it was just sitting there and hadn’t began the process but they had indeed received it” . At first when I was checking wmr website it would tell me I entered something incorrectly and finally last thursday it read that I would get my refund 2/28. Yesterday I Checked wmr and it says “we have received your return and it is being REVIEWED. You will receive a notice from us requesting additional info from you” . What I’m the world is going on????

  298. Krystle on Mon, 20th Feb 2012 10:45 am 

    I too also filed Feb 2 and was told I would have it by the 16th of Feb. I kept checking the irs site and it said processing. Then i finally got a message that said I would have it by Feb. 28th. Checked today and now it says it is under review and I will recieve a letter needing further information. Seems that alot of people are going thru this right now. Is there anyone that has heard something back or gotten their letters saying what they need further information on? PLEASE Help!!!

  299. SR on Mon, 20th Feb 2012 8:47 pm 

    I think I heard on another site that that little system of theirs kicked out a bunch of returns for further review

  300. Lia on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 8:59 am 

    i filed on the 6th of feb it got accepted on the 7th now when i call it says its under review and that they will send me a letter requestinig info ??has anyone recived the letter yet ??

  301. SR on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 4:39 pm 

    Haven’t received the letter but I do not want to contact these people. If anyone receives the letter or decides to get ahold of them keep me updated. I may wait until the 28th to contact them.

  302. Tiffany on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 5:39 pm 

    I filed 2/3 accpeted on 2/4. First WMR gave date 2/28 for dd date then it said 2/21. Well, today I called Liberty tax and nothing! Called IRS and was told by first rep its being processed and its in review. 2nd and 3rd rep said nothing about my return was in review only that its being processed with no dd date. First rep told me early March I shoul get my refund. Does anyone know what this all means?

  303. SR on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 5:50 pm 

    Tiffany- I guess we will just have to cross our fingers and hope that we don’t find a letter in the mailbox because they may make us wait even longer. Someone on another site said to sit tight and check wmr for a status update/change, as long as we don’t receive a letter we should be fine.

  304. Tiffany on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 6:24 pm 

    SR, I checked wmr about 5 mins ago and it has zero info now! It says it can take six wks to process. Log on in a wk. Insane!!!

  305. SR on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 10:19 pm 

    One of my family member got a 6 week message a couple hours before his money hit. Hope u get your money and mine gets updated

  306. Tiffany on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 10:47 pm 

    Same here I’ll pray for you

  307. Disciple on Wed, 22nd Feb 2012 6:21 pm 

    It is my understanding that once the system kicks you out for what ever reason the IRS error resolution center has 30 days to rectify or send letters before sending it back through its processing division. It’s really a shame but they are in such control until you feel helpless. Now, after speaking with one to two reps. A day I’ve come to the conclusion that I will get when they want me to have it. Sad to say……

  308. SR on Wed, 22nd Feb 2012 10:15 pm 

    Well I got my refund or should I say a small part only! My refund was 7200 and I only received 2400! Will call them to find out why

  309. Kathy on Thu, 23rd Feb 2012 5:24 am 

    funny people i know filed false retuns and got theirs back

  310. SR on Thu, 23rd Feb 2012 6:22 am 

    ^^^ better system my a**! Turns out I’m missing the eic portion of my return! Will call in a few mins to find out wth is going on!

  311. Martha on Thu, 23rd Feb 2012 11:49 am 

    Yeah i looked on the website and it states from when you E file it should be 10-21 days. That time has passed. When i went to the website on “wheres my refund” it says March 6th? I had never before experienced them being so slow. I hope to get it soon! That would make it a month and a week from the date i filed which was the 2nd of Feb. Need the money badly!

  312. Johnathon on Thu, 23rd Feb 2012 6:22 pm 

    Hi Martha, I’m the same as you filed on Feb 2 and have an estimated date of March 6. About a week after I filed I got the 9001 code then it turned to a March 6 date “if there are no processing delays or owe other taxes. I’m calling them tomorrow and I will post the results of the conversation. Please let me know what happened to you.

  313. Phil on Fri, 24th Feb 2012 4:35 am 

    The IRS should have been prepared for this. Good people are getting screwed. I got my state 4 days after I efiled on Feb 2nd. Love the fact that according to WMR I don’t exsist? Well I guess if I owed they’d have the MIB looking for me. I hope everyone gets their refunds asap. Also send a message to yoyur congressman. If they don’t reply don’t revote them in.

  314. Deion Primetime on Fri, 24th Feb 2012 10:49 am 

    After reading an article pertaining to delayed refunds I find out that the IRS decided to use a newer system that prevents Fraud. If your return goes through the system and something is out of place it gets reprocessed ! Wow, its so nice of them to inform everyone as soon as this happened ! Its crazy, I called and they told me my taxes are under investigation until further notice. I said thats BS ! Now I know why I havent received ! If they owe you there is problem, if you owe them then you lose your house, car, paycheck, dog, fish, cat, girlfriend, or wife ! This is the reason why im going back to filing a dependent . This way I get my money the entire year and when tax season rolls around I can take my sweet time filing my taxes with a $0 dollar amount on it ! No refund for me and no payment for their ASS !!

  315. stephanie on Fri, 24th Feb 2012 3:42 pm 

    My fiance n i r waiting desperately for our returns y tell us a date so we get our hopes up if u dont truly know theyve given us 3 dates my fiance n i r waiting to move n our home but waitin on money to get lights n water on we have twoittle grls why cant anyone atleast have the decentcy to let us know wats goin on we have the right to kno about the money we worked our asses off for

  316. Johnathon on Sat, 25th Feb 2012 7:23 am 

    Just following up from my posting on the Feb 23, 2012. I called the IRS anticipating a long wait, but to my surprise it was only 4 min. The CSR asked me a series of security questions then asked if I was checking on my refund. I said yes, it has been more than the 21 day processing time. She checked and to my surprise told me it was “scheduled” for the 29th. I asked her if she knew why it took so long to get to this point, She said some returns take longer and “4 to 5 weeks is not necessarily too long and the 21 days processing is an estimate”. Well, if was being gone over with a fine tooth comb I’ll never know. Or it is flagged for possible audit I wont know until later. But it looks as if they are releasing my my on the 29th. In fact, I check WMR this morning and it say I have a scheduled day on the 29th. I will follow up after that day.

  317. Marquette on Sat, 25th Feb 2012 11:02 am 

    Ok so I kept checking the site and it kept saying ‘no information’ basically. I finally called the IRS and the lady said it WAS processing, that because I had a school credit it was taking a bit longer. Two days later the wmr site told me it would be sent DD on the 27th. Yesterday I checked and it says this:

    Your tax return has been received and is being processed.
    If you file a complete and accurate tax return, your refund will be issued:

    within six weeks of the received date.

    Really? wth!?

  318. jennifer on Sat, 25th Feb 2012 2:59 pm 

    I posted earlier and was told that my return was being reviewed. They gave no reason just said that a letter was being mailed to me. I received the letter and it stated that my return was being reviewed and to wait to contact the IRS for 45 days from the date on the letter which was Feb. 1st. They never asked for any additional information or said that is was an official audit. So why is it being reviewed? I called the tax advocacy and was told that it could be pulled for review cause my refund amount was over $10,000 and because I claimed an education credit and also I claimed my kids this year which I have not claimed them for the past 3 years my boyfriend has because he has supported us while I have been in school fulltime. So I originally filed on 1/17 and was accepted on 1/19. When I check on WMR it states that I should receive my refund on or before Feb. 7 lol r u serious???? Realistically I have to wait 45 days from Feb. 1st and then after that initial 45 days I was told that it could take 6-8 weeks longer to actually physically have my refund. WTF…Just love our wonderful government. Now if the roles were reversed and I owed the IRS money do you think that they would wait a total of 5 months for me to pay them? Hell no they would be calling me 10 times a day and knocking at my door threatening me. It really is a no win situation and my hands are tied. Good luck to everyone else in the same situation or situations similiar.

    @Jim, I don’t think this has to do with race!
    Even when the Commander in Chief was White we all were going through the same thing or worse, it’s just that we’ve indebted ourselves and has depended on the aid of China and others until now our deeds has caught up with us and the us in my conversation is AMERICA( all nationalities)! Let’s just keep the problem where it is Jim and that’s with the IRS. Democracy not monarchy!!!

  323. Marquette on Sun, 26th Feb 2012 7:59 am 

    I keep checking the website, and still says the same generic thing about if I filed an accurate tax return, it’ll take up to 6 weeks, and I filed on Feb 3, was accepted on Feb 4th. GrrrRRrrrr!!!!! I have SOO many bills, and need a new refridgerator (right now we don’t even have one). This all sucks so bad :(

  324. Dorothy on Sun, 26th Feb 2012 1:15 pm 

    I filed mine on February 11, got an email confirmation also on the 11th. Checked refund website a few times, it said my dd would be on the 23rd. No dd on the 23! I checked again on the 23th and it said it was dd on the 23rd. I checked again yesterday (saturday) and it said it was being reviewed for a code 1121. so now what? Of course that posted on a saturday and you can’t call IRS until monday. Any one experienced this? Please help rest my mind.

  325. Marquette on Mon, 27th Feb 2012 7:08 am 

    Ok so I just called the irs again… NOW they are saying I have a DD date of March 2. all I can say is OMG. Really?

  326. Dorothy on Mon, 27th Feb 2012 9:49 am 

    I called IRS this morning. Ms. Banks cannot understand why they have to review mine since there have been no changes in the last 3 years. I have to wait for the “letter” which has not left yet. Letter wasn’t going to be sent out until I called in. I might call back tomorrow and see what they tell me then.

    I am appalled at everyone complaining and bitching about not getting your refund. Come on, your getting FREE Money. And you complain. I get frustrated at the IRS, but you need to follow these simple rules to remain civil.

    1) The IRS is not worth the salaries they get paid.

    2) 99% of people getting refunds, are receiving FREE Money.

    3) New rules so that people don’t rip off the IRS as much.

    4) Its Mitt Romneys money your taking.

    5) Next year the Free Money Tree will go down and that means less Free Money.

    You are not entitled to anything, earn it! You count and rely on a check from the IRS to pay bills, well don’t. Its like a bonus check. When it goes in your bank account or the mailman drops it off, go spend it. But come on the IRS is both a joke and worthless and you coming and complaining about your Welfare Checks is demeaning. Technically the IRS has 35 working days from April 17, 2012 to get you your refund, so be happy your getting it in Feb or March.

    Another note, starting 2012 the IRS Direct Deposits on Wednesdays. So check in your account on that day.

  329. GLZ on Thu, 1st Mar 2012 6:14 am 

    It isn’t free money dumbass! it’s the amount of money in ECXESS that I paid into this disfunctional bureaucracy

  330. Mike on Thu, 1st Mar 2012 11:32 am 

    A refund is the IRS returning the excess tax paid, it isn’t “free” money. Except for the 27% of Americans that get more than they paid in because Democrats have twisted “tax cut” into actual welfare payments.

    But that isn’t why I am here. I am on hold after spending an hour trying to talk to a human being at the IRS with no luck. We received a letter from the IRS..

    NEVER MIND! I just got disconnected with a “your call cannot be completed at this time”.

    This administration needs to go and go now. What a bunch of incompetent morons. It has NEVER been this bad before.

  331. Carmen on Thu, 1st Mar 2012 2:37 pm 

    E-filed on Feb 4th through H&R Block. They neer entered my email address so I didn’t get verification that my taxes were accepted. Checked the next week and there was no information on me @WMR. Called the H&R Block customer service # and was told that my return for Federal and both states had been accepted the same day and that the IRS was having problems with their new software and my return would probably be delayed another 2 weeks. I finally got my federal return deposited on Feb.29th but not my state return. I call Mass State tax office to find out where my refund was and was told that they had sent out letter on the 27th for further information. I informed him that I had not received the letter and could he please send me another copy and what did the letter contain. I was told that I needed to send a copy of my 2011 return, a copy of my SS card and a copy of my paystub for verification. After 17 yers of filing with the state of Massachusetts they now need to verify who I am? I don’t even live in the state, just work there, and now have to deal with this b.s. and rude customer service rep because according to him “if I were a law abiding taxpayer I would have no problem providing them with all requested paperwork”. Am I supposed to make Identity Theft easier for them by sending all of that information in?

  332. Dorothy on Thu, 1st Mar 2012 5:54 pm 

    I called IRS again yesterday. Still no letter and come find out they put a review on my taxes on the 15th. So I had them do a “hard ship”, and they have 7 days to get back to me and pay up. I wrote their names and ID numbers down and have made a record.

  333. Brian on Fri, 2nd Mar 2012 10:06 am 

    Umm, I think that when the government owes you YOUR money, they delay it for as long as possible. I know they cash checks you send them within a week. One member of my family is due a refund and it looks like two months? Sent beginning of Feb. and not due until April. I sent a payment for taxes due – cleared my bank within a week. I can remember when you mailed tax forms and they mailed you a refund back within four weeks. Isn’t the Internet age great?!

  334. jenell on Fri, 2nd Mar 2012 7:10 pm 

    I called the nys tax line and its telling me the info i entered doesnt match their records!! Anyone else get this?!

  335. Chrissy on Sat, 3rd Mar 2012 4:59 am 

    I filed my taxes on jan 26th and was accepted that day. I have called 5 times and was told different things each time. I ordered my transcripts and recvd them yesterday and from what I understand on them Im thinking I won’t receive mine until April.?

  336. Deven on Mon, 5th Mar 2012 10:22 am 

    I filed on Feb. 23rd through Turbo tax. It processed no problem and gave me a refund date of March 13th. I looked earlier today and it said in process and should be three weeks. Looked this afternoon and it is not even showing up. What gives?

    We must up forgot a weird parenthesized # on a credit union account! So the bank returned it! Checked the status & its reference was 9001! I signed i with the correct tax payer id number so i know its a secondary tin! WhT it means from what ive seen which ive never gotten but thx to my sis giving me a digit short, youll be receiving a PAPER check in the mail which can take 3-4 weeks after they receive the funds back (irs)! That is what i was told an concluded after checking a few sites….

    I filed and was excepted on Jan 28. It has been 38 days and still no money. Last monday i made then put an electronic memo to review my refund. they said it will take up to 30 days to hear back from them. The only thing the IRS lady could tell me was, it was one of the many pulled from electronic to manual processing. Please let me know if you had this going on, and what happened? Thanks :) im starting to get frustrated, its just bonus money..BUT STILL!!

  344. Sammy on Wed, 7th Mar 2012 1:52 am 

    I filed back Feb. 6th. Everything was going great at first.. they accepted my return and told me I would get my refund Feb. 16th at the latest. My Aunt done hers on the same day only a few minutes after me. She got her taxes. Feb. 10th. I waited, and waited, on the 16th I checked to see if mine had came in. nothing. Feb. 24th I checked again and it said that that it was processing. That I would be getting my refund in 24-48 hours. I called my tax lady and she looked into it for me. We waited another 2 days and checked again. All it said was processing so we called the IRS and they told me that they could not find anything that maybe it was under the new filing system. That i should get my money in a week. It has been a week now well over a week and still nothing. Still saying processing and the costumer rep cannot find anything wrong with my taxes. Its just processing.. It has been a month. All my family have received their money and I am still waiting. I just had a baby and really need my money for my little one. why wont they just send out the money that I put in.. Its my money. grrrrr it makes me ill…..

    I had my taxes e-filed on Jan. 17th WMR said i would get my DD on Jan. 25th. On WMR my return was proccessing. I recieved a letter from the IRS that my return was reviewed and adjusted by the IRS and they adjusted my return where i will get me back more $$$ than before. WMR says I would get my DD on Feb. 28th. On Feb. 29th WMR says my taxes are being peoccesed AGAIN. I call the IRS and speak to someone and was told that my refund was being reviewed and that was all she could tell me it is just a LUCK OF THE DRAW that my return was chosen. I called again and this person looked into it and told me my return is froozen, he doesn’t know why and he doesn’t see any notes or reasons why. He also saw that my return is the same as the last three years and just had NOTHING he could tell me, he even told me he was sorrry for this happening. My return is still saying it’s proccessing, does anyone have any answers on this.

  347. bridget on Wed, 7th Mar 2012 7:26 pm 

    I know a few people who have file in january and still waiting all you get is different answers from the IRS and I dont think that fair. If you owed them they want to take you property. As of today mines still processing had a deposit date for the 1st of feb. but nothing. all im saying tell these people what going on because some people do need their money.

  348. bridget on Fri, 9th Mar 2012 11:48 am 

    well I called the irs and they told me they have to do a referrel because of the time frame which i filed in jan 24 2012. I ask why she said for them to resend the letter they suppose to have sent you 3 weeks ago. when you get the letter irs have 30 days to reply with your refund. People this is more stalling they are doing to us and it not FAIR but GOD is not sleep. If they needed more information or document why not ask me for them why im on the phone and let me fax them to you..to much like right….they are full of shit and i never disrepect the system but these people are WRONGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!

  349. Alonda on Sat, 10th Mar 2012 6:35 pm 

    I filed on Jan 23,2012 and was accepted the same day. I received my State return but not my federal. I checked the IRS web site and it said Feb 8, 2012 but nothing happen so I called them and they said give it another week I waited another week and check their web site again and it said that it is being process. They did not post me a reference number and everything on my e file is correct so whats really going on. Now it’s been 46 days now im really worried. I don’t owe any one, dont have any debts so why cant the IRS give me a straight answer? So i called back and now they are telling me to call back March 16, 2012. This is crazy, because if we owed uncle sam he would be at our front door for his, so why is it a problem for him to give us our money????We only get this money once a year and we worked hard for every penny and plus some. Gas is so high right now Uncle Sam, and it would be nice to have my money in my pocket so i can fill up my tank for once.
    In my profession, i have to drive to my clients homes with my own gas and take care of these elderly people who I dearly love, and the sad part about it is i have to let some of them go because of the price of living. I shouldnt have to tell Uncle Sam all my business but i really need my money I have 2 teemage daughters who depend greatly on MOM. And could some one tell me, why i do not have a reference number, it just saying it been received and being process? Come on its been 46 days now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  350. Emily Martinez on Tue, 13th Mar 2012 9:30 am 

    I been waiting for weeks on my refund, I called these silly 1 800 numbers that they gave me and all I get is this answer machine. It going to be 7 weeks this Friday that still haven’t gotten my return.
    If I owe the IRS I know they would be sending me letters like crazy, and not nice one either, or they will be garnishing my work check. this is my MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW. HONESTLY WHAT IS THE HOLD UP AND I WANT DAYS. YES DAYS WHEN WILL I GET MY REFUND. I DID MY TAXES ELECTRONIC AND STILL NOTHING. WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH MY MONEY!!!!!

  351. Emily Martinez on Tue, 13th Mar 2012 9:32 am 

    I JUST WANT MY MONEY AND SOON, I AM JUST UPSET AND SO DISAPPOINTED WITH THE IRS. I NEED TO PAY BILLS.

  352. JM on Wed, 14th Mar 2012 4:21 am 

    We are in the same boat as most of you. We filed on Jan 22 and the return date changed 3 times. as of FEB 21st it still says “being processed” we have not received any letters from the IRS. I contacted the taxpayer advocate people and they said that the return was fixed and i need to call the IRS personally. NONE OF THE NUMBERS WORK! what numbers are you all calling to speak to someone?

  353. jennifer on Wed, 14th Mar 2012 7:20 am 

    I had posted a comment on here back at the end of January. My refund was pulled for review and I did receive my letter Feb. 1st stating that it was under review and to wait 45 days. So this am I checked the IRS website to see that my WMR status has changed from Feb. 7 to March 20th. So I called the IRS only for them to tell me that I will be receiving another letter in the mail. I asked what the second letter was for and she couldnt tell me anything. The only thing different on my return this year was that I claimed my two kids which I havent for the past three years. My ex husband has claimed them because I was in school and not working. If they needed additional information why didnt they just ask for it the first time around why are they sending another notice to me. And if my return needed additional information why does my DD date keep changing?

  354. jennifer on Thu, 15th Mar 2012 4:38 am 

    Try calling 1-800-829-0582, when asked for an extension, enter 362. This will give you a live agent at the IRS.

  355. Robbie on Fri, 16th Mar 2012 11:45 am 

    I have been given one dd date of mar13th, after i checked wmr site and it said mar20th. So i deceided to check again today and it said mar27th. im a single parent and was just cut hours. I been depending on my refund to play bills and catch up, any ideas??

  356. Kamara on Sat, 17th Mar 2012 12:38 am 

    Well I called the IRS today AGAIN now im being told my return is under review just to make sure all the information is correct, and I should get my return or a letter 60 days from today, NOT JAN. 25TH WHICH WAS MY 1ST DD DATE, NOT FEB. 28TH WHICH WAS MY 2ND DD DATE, NOT 60 DAYS FROM THE 1ST TWO TIMES I CALLED AND TALKED TO THEM, BUT 60 DAYS FROM TODAY. I am told because this is from actions cause things changed just last week. The last time i called which was over 2 weeks ago my return was FROZEN for NO REASON AT ALL, and FROZEN is something totally DIFFERENT from REVIEWED, and this is what changed last week. All the income tax scammers are getting retuns back and I can’t even get my real return back that is owed to me.

  357. Demetrius on Mon, 19th Mar 2012 2:19 pm 

    Its Been About 3 Months & I Still Haven’t Seen My Taxes. (Jan. 9, 2012) Turbotax Screwed Me Over Saying They Need Me To Fax My Info in After They Closed My Card For Nothing. I Faxed it, Still They Claim They Never Received It. So I Routed It To Come As A Check Instead Of On The Card. All I See Is “Processing” On The IRS Website. When I Call, They Say Error Department. It Has Been Sitting In There So Long They Told Me it Was Suspended Now??? Whatever That Means. Anyway, The Lady I Called Today Still Couldn’t Help Me. She Said I Cant See Anything Sir When I Try To Look For It. Then Why Are You Working There? Finally She Says I Should Wait 30 More Days Or Earlier Before I Receive A Phone Call Because I Never Received Anything From In The Mail, To See What The Issue Are If Theres Any. Why Don’t They Just Let Us Know Details After We First File? I Think Something Else Is Going On. Still Waiting Its Been Almost 3 Months!

  358. Kamara on Mon, 19th Mar 2012 6:52 pm 

    The way I see this is that the IRS is giving out different excuses to stall us on getting our taxes back. Every excuse ends with either 30 day or 60 day wait before you should do anything. It is not right but what can we do about it NOTHING because no matter what we sya or do the end result is we have to WAIT and the IRS knows this and this is why you can never get a straight answer from them.

  359. JM on Tue, 20th Mar 2012 12:31 pm 

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE NUMBER…I AM ON HOLD NOW……SO FAR I HAVE GOTTEN FARTHER THAN I HAVE IN THE PAST MONTH!!!!!!

  361. tresh72 on Wed, 28th Mar 2012 5:07 pm 

    I filed my return on Feb.6th 2012 electronically. I was given three different dates after that as to when my refund would be deposited. I finally called the irs and they said I reported having been a victim of identity theft. I informed them that I was not. I was then told the fraud dept would be handling my return and this would take 4 to 6 weeks. I called the irs today , the fraud dept had released my return on Mar.26th, but the irs still says it could take 6 weeks for them to release it. Can they do this? Its almost April

    Yes, as a matter of fact I think I do know whar the problems are. IRS stands for IDIOTs Running the System. It means they haven’t figured out the issue with your taxes yet and probably won’t for months to come. SO GOOD LUCK

    Filed taxes Jan 23th. Still havent received my refund. I’m expecting a very large amount and I call and nobody seems to know anything. Was told 45 days then today I was told 60 days. This is flipping crazy.

  367. bj on Tue, 26th Jun 2012 9:01 am 

    I file my taxes in January 17, 2012 by mail. I waited 2 months before I received information about my return. I received my first letter, my return is under review/wait 45 days. Well, I waited 45 days and called the IRS to find out the status on my refund. I was told they have not posted a date yet and they will have to send in a referral now I got to wait another 45 days…. What is a referral?

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Five-star Valencia hammer Indonesia
    [url=http://www.newnikegreenspeed.com]new nike green speed[/url]
    It began to look as if Indonesia custodian Wahyu Tri Nugroho was going to have a long night at the office as his defence offered little resistance to their Spanish opposition, but five minutes before the half-hour mark, he only had himself to blame as his failure to punch away a corner allowed Jonas to lob the ball back in for Costa to power home.
    La Liga outfit Valencia had an easy time at the Gelora Bung Karno on Saturday as they registered a 5-0 friendly win over Indonesia.
    Still, that effort was a brief moment for the home crowd to savour as Los Che continued to dominate proceedings, with their attacks down the right proving especially fruitful due to some good combination work between Hernandez and Antonio Barragan.

    If they are not repaid on time frame then there have become penalty charges.

I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read, nonetheless I genuinely thought you’d have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.
