LTR 4464C from the IRS. How long will this delay be?

Only the IRS can provide you with that information. A timeframe should be on the letter you received. Generally, they ask you to contact them if you don't receive your refund or hear from them within 60 days from the date of the letter. Once they have completed their review, they will issue your refund.

The IRS has indicated that the letters are part of the screening program to combat stolen identity refund fraud and do not mean the taxpayer has been selected for audit. The IRS uses algorithms similar to a discriminate function system score to detect potential refund fraud. 

Certain characteristics are:
  • If the taxpayer is a first-time filer, 
  • Receiving a refund unusually larger than the one from a prior year or is receiving W-2 income unexpectedly.

Just keep an eye out on their Where's My Refund site for status updates. Or you can call them at the IRS tax refund hotline at 800-829-4477, Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Or, call the 24-hour ­assistance at 800-829-1040 to see if they can provide you a timeframe if not provided on the letter.

LTR 4464C from the IRS. How long will this delay be?

I've been patiently waiting on my refund I also received this letter 4464c I received the Id verification letter which I have received for the past 3 years or more but after I verify it only took a few days but this year after verifying when the 9 weeks was up i got the 4464c letter saying wait another 60 days. This is so sad. After searching on what to do (which there is nothing you can do) it just amazes me how the people who work their butts off all year and do the right thing go through bull**bleep** but ones who work 2 months out of the year and blow their whole refund on (let's just say unnecessary things) get it right away. If they would just be honest instead of saying wait....wait.....wait....letter....letter.....anyway done ranting hopefully something has got to give!!! Lost in the sauce

My wife and I are going through the same thing. We filed January 28th, was accepted same day, 3 weeks later got the verification letter, after waiting for where's my refund to change, the letter 4464c came on March 28th, the 60 days was up@ the end of May, we heard NOTHING, n nothing changed on where's my refund. I decided to"finally" call and I was told that because we filed w/ turbo tax, the refund goes into their account, they take they're fee, and then they send us the $. Only problem with that is turbo tax closed our account because the i.r.s. hasn't sent the refund yet, resulting in us personally posting for turbo tax service. So they said they'd put in for a paper check to be mailed, however, that could take up to
(You guessed it) 60 days....! Very frustrating...! Maybe we'll get it as an early Christmas present .
Lol.
Lost in new England 😜
