Bars and 152 topic disappeared

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.

On irs.gov all of the bars have disappeared and there had not been any change in 20 days. I check today and Tax topic 152 is gone, but my refund amount is visible (it was not previously). What does this mean?

Same thing here. Bars gone, and code gone.  Just says ‘still being processed’.    I think it just means it’s actually being processed now by a real person.  Then, when approved you get a refund date.  Mine is EIC so I don’t think it will come until mid-February.  At least that’s what the website says.

@Taken20 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.

I have the same issue... bars disappeared about 5 days ago.  I still had Tax topic 152 at that point with correct refund amount showing on left.  Today... 5 days after bars disappeared, tax topic 152 and refund amount has disappeared.  Did yours ever resolve?
