You are so right. Last year I had DD and it gave me a date on TT and WMR. My refund was in my account two to three days before the date. Go figure. Let's just keep our hopes up high
People seem to forget the government was shut down for quite some time. Delays are to be expected. More people should see updates overnight on the IRS website. There is no need for panic.
I finally spoke with a person at the IRS. Even though I got a text message saying my return was accepted on 1/28, and today would be day 22, she told me my return wasn't accepted until 1/30, and so she could look nothing up as it wasn't 21 days. Said she didn't care of what message I had, that her message said not accepted until 1/30
