Also - 

If you were showing Tax Topic 152 simply means your return is still in the processing stage and topics and bars disappearing mean the process is moving along.

 

The general timeline of e-filed returns is: Transmission > Acceptance > Processing > Approval > Refund.

 

The IRS started processing returns later than in prior years and as such has a backlog to work through. They also just recently started processing returns claiming EIC and/or ACTC.

 

During processing, the government reviews your refund. During the review process, they look for math errors on your return (extremely rare in TurboTax) and they also check if you owe back taxes, unpaid child support, or other debts.

 

If they need to make any corrections, they may offset (reduce) your refund. In some cases, the correction might even increase your refund.

 

Once that part's done, the government approves your refund, which means it's ready to be deposited or sent.  At that point the IRS site will update with a direct deposit date.

If you have an offset how long does it take to get your refund? Is it direct deposit through SBTPG still?

@Ldynay85 it's going through sbtpg no matter what if there are fees for tax preparation being taken from the refund

So I checked my transcript...

 

Shows 

150 - Tax return filed (Cycle2020705) 3/2/20

 

806 - W-2 or 1099 Withholding 4/15/20

 

766 - Credit to your account 4/15/20

 

768 - Earned income credit 4/15/20

 

 

Does this mean my return won't come until 4/15/20?

@CMFlunk   No. It means yours still processing and you are waiting on the date. You should get a 846 code under those lines. Following by “Refund Issued” and then a date. That date will be your deposit date.

@lolavur Much obliged! I sort of figured that was the case after looking at previous year's transcripts.

I was able to order my 2019 return transcript via phone.  I do have an offset from the state of GA.

@Justinrescobedo I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but 570 (at least in my experience) is not good. I got one last year when I had to send in information to verify what I claimed.

I spoke to an IRS representative and he stated it could be anywhere from tomorrow to the first week in March we could receive our refunds. I filed 1/15 and accepted 1/15. My processing date is 2/10/2020 and my cycle is 20200405. So that being said this is a bunch of bull. I want my money.

Just got off the phone with an IRS representative that told me that after the PATH act was lifted the returns did not begin processing til Tuesday which means ANOTHER 21 days of possible waiting (her words).

She said to expect between 2/27 & 3/7 for refund.

 

I filed 1/23 

Accepted 1/27

Received Advance 1/28
