Does 846 Code = Approved?

Filed 01/21

PATH Act Filer

Accepted 02/10

WMR @first bar, "being processed...within 21 days", Code 152 on 02/10

Transcript Code 846, 02/17


This morning (02/17) my IRS Transcript Account page showed Code 846 - Refund Issued, with a date of 02/22.  My WMR has not changed from the the first orange bar.  The last four digits of my Cycle code are 0701 which, if I'm not mistaken, makes me a daily updater...???

So here's my question:  with the 846 Code  can I safely assume my Return has been approved?  


Sorry if my question is unclear; any feedback appreciated.

Your question is clear.  I would not like to assume in these types of situations. 


If the IRS Where's My Refund website doesn't seem to be accurately updating, you can try the automated hotline instead: 1-800-829-1954; you may have a better chance of getting your refund status this way. 


Just remember that Covid-19 continues to cause delays in some of the IRS processes.  I would suggest checking back periodically.

If I may ask, did you receive your refund on 02/22?

@kritter81 , sorry I haven't been on the site in a couple days.  My refund was actually in my account on 02/20.  Hope this helps.
