I didnt file in 2018 either. But i filled a 2019 tax return in february. Thats what they went off of. If your getting the "TRY AGAIN LATER" message then try putting the address exactly the way it is on your return. All the caps spaces EVERYTHING identical.and make sure to wait a full 24 hours before you try again...because it will lock you out and give you the try back later error. It will tell you your info is not on file. Thats what i did and i got in finally. The 24 hour thing is likely what it is
@Jmspruett72 can you please tell me what information you put in? Every time I put in 2019 Information they can't find it.. I filed on January 29th 2020 and it went through on the turbotax side but not the IRS
Hey everyone. Quick update. I filed my taxes january 31, 2020. Still have not received my federal or state refund I'm still on processing with tax topic 152. I did receive a stimulus check to my DIRECT DEPOSIT. ●IMPORTANT INFO-> the stimulus deposit was deposited into my current bank account with chase. Back in 2018 when I filed I did not file any direct deposit because I did not have a banking received both refunds by mail as check form. SOOO clearly they have my tax I filed this year or else there would be no way for me to have gotten the stimulus check, other than mail. Hoping by the end of this month I change to having a direct deposit date. Goodluck to everyone waiting and stay safe everyone.
Filed January 26th, accepted on the 27th. No return, still says processing. I have received my state return, the stimulus and my unemployment bonus, but still no federal return. I do realize that if you claimed EIC or CTC that your return will not be processed until February 27th. Okay fine. April 24th and still nothing. I have relatives and friends who claimed everything and filed mid February and they all got their return beginning to mid March. But I am still stuck in the IRS limbo, why? Bad luck? I called the IRS mid March and they said "still processing, cannot give you exact date". He said everything looked good and no mistakes, just waiting. Why? I have been filing my own taxes since 1999 and filed jointly the past 10 years and I have NEVER waited this long.
I'm in the same boat. 2 weeks after i got a letter they needed 60 days, i got another letter saying they need an additional 60 days... Can't tell me what and if theirs anything i need to fix. So frustrating.
What number did you call to speak to
someone?? I filed Jan 27th received my state about a week later but no federal. Called them
mid March they said they drafted me a letter feb 14th and I had to wait 60 days from that date to receive it or the money. Well April 14th came and went and I have no letter, no money, and no way to actually contact an actual person at the IRS. I haven’t received my stimulus payment either.
Still half closed any of us that took a refund anticipation loan or got a advance and used the company's card for it need to enter directd info of your actual account or your probably gonna wait for mail on stimulus. I did the where's my payment and entered info now I have a deposit date of 430 into my account for stimulus . Was told to wait till may 18 for return est.
Call the IRS: [phone number removed] hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for "personal income tax" instead.
Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".
Then press 3 "for all other questions."
Then press 2 "for all other questions."
- When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don’t enter anything.
- After it asks twice, you will get another menu.
Then press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
It should then transfer you to an agent.
I filed January 29 also accepted same day. I had to fax over a 1095a and 8962 which I did on March 10th. Still have not heard anything. I think this is ridiculous. I realize we are in a pandemic but some people filled way before any of this started happening. A letter of update would be nice.
