Please see the information the IRS has listed regarding verification below:

What happens after I verify online or after I call?

We’ll continue processing your return. It will take approximately six weeks to process.

Continue to monitor the IRS Where’s My Federal Refund? site for updates. Updates are made daily, usually overnight. You may also download the IRS2Go app to check your Federal refund status.

After verifying identity 4883C, how long does it really take? Especially if you claimed EITC

This is 2021! I received a 4883c, 5 months ago I haven't heard or seen anything about my refund, stimulus checks, ( I've only received the very first one of $1200. It was by mail, I've already lost everything but my dog my daughter n law is paying for my phone. I started drawing Early retirement check of 773. A month That's not much I'm a 62 year old woman who has worked since I was 13  I had to get a workers permit back then so I've worked 50 years and only received that, I'm trying desperately to get my disability this makes my 3rd time. God nothing has come easy for me, I'm one of those people that always get pushed back to the back of the line on things but I keep trudging through and silently fighting for myself cause no one will ever help much. But I keep trying, I NEED HELP TO FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY MONEY!!

The IRS site with information on Letter 4883c currently has:

 

After we successfully verify your identity, we’ll process your tax return. It may take up to 9 weeks to receive your refund or credit any over-payment to your account.
 

There is more information directly at their page IRS Letter4883c

I filed 1/31,waited until March12th to call them but I was getting the “delay beyond normal time” message on WMR. They said I was under review and to check back within 60 days normally but 120 because of the coronavirus. Heck no! I’ve been calling every week since then. I then received a verification ID letter. I did it online and called yesterday To verify over the phone finally after 2 hours of being on hold. She told me she adjusted some things after I verified and Ide have to wait 9 weeks to see my refund. Has anyone experienced this before and what was the outcome?

Yes, this is a normal IRS process that has been slowed down due to COVID. Once you get through the identity part you are on the home stretch. Nothing to do now but wait.

According to the IRS website: "After you verify your identity and tax return information using this service, it may take up to 9 weeks to complete the processing of the return. Visit Where’s My Refund? or use the IRS2Go mobile app 2-3 weeks after using this service to check your refund status."

Here's the flat out truth, the government will hit you with penalties for being late but do not even have to give you a legit reason  why your payment is past due. 11 going on 12 weeks now no letter no nothing. Its my motorcycle money, know my luck it'll be just in time for winter might just get a snowmobile instead. SMDH

After you verify your identity at the irs , how long does it really take to get your refund ? Or how long does it take for your irs status to change from being reviewed to approved ?
