No refund

Hello I verified my identity 9 weeks plus like  I filed them in march 9th. I still have yet to hear from them and it still says my refund isn’t processed. I haven’t heard from them either. They have 5 more days before it’s 9 weeks. This sucks. Can anyone help me to figure out what’s going on?

It does suck and there is nothing you can do but wait for the IRS to finish processing the return and release the refund.   There is no way to speed up the process so all you can do is check the IRS site once a week until you see movement.

@Anabananay54  - here is what the IRS states

 

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-operations-during-covid-19-mission-critical-functions-continue#coll...

 

How long you may have to wait: The IRS understands the importance of timely processing of tax returns and refund issuance. We have processed all error free returns received prior to October 2021 and continue to work the returns that need to be manually reviewed due to errors.  We are continuing to reroute tax returns and taxpayer correspondence from locations that are behind to locations where more staff is available, and we are taking other actions to minimize any delays. Tax returns are opened and processed in the order received. As the return is processed, whether it was filed electronically or on paper, it may be delayed because it has a mistake including errors concerning the Recovery Rebate Credit and the Child Tax Credit, is missing information, or there is suspected identity theft or fraud. If we can fix it without contacting you, we will. If we need more information or need you to verify that it was you who sent the tax return, we will write you a letter. The resolution of these issues could take 90 to 120 days depending on how quickly and accurately you respond, and the ability of IRS staff trained and working under social distancing requirements to complete the processing of your return.

What you should do: In most instances, no further action is needed but you may check Where’s My Refund? or you can view your account. If you filed electronically and received an acknowledgement, you do not need to take any further action other than promptly responding to any requests for information. If you filed on paper, check Where’s My Refund? If it tells you we have received your return or are processing or reviewing it, we are processing your return, but it may be under review. If you filed before October 2021 and Where’s My Refund? does not have any information, your return has been opened but work on it has not begun. We’re working hard to get through the carryover inventory. Please don’t file a second tax return or contact the IRS about the status of your return.

Yeah well ... in good times 9 weeks would be the norm but not in this new covid normal as the IRS is woefully understaffed so expect things to take much much longer than the posted normal.  Nothing you can do but check the IRS site once a week until you see the refund has been approved for release.  Sadly there is nothing you can do to speed up the process.
