I got a letter March 9 for 45 days, another March 23 for 60 days, but I had already contacted a Tax Advocate.
They didn’t have my wage info from my employer. Sent a letter from them with my wage info in on March 20. By that point, the IRS had gone to a skeleton crew and the TA office in my state was working from home.
The TA finally had it released from a person there at the IRS to be deposited tomorrow. But it took that long. What should have taken a week-2 weeks from March 20 took almost 6. Just be realistic in time expectations. They are reviewing refunds; it’s just a much slower process and it isn’t like it was before.
just wanted to post my update!
@Mcbeast215 My refund wasn’t held due to my employer not submitting my wage info. I say this is BS, but they couldn’t verdict my W2 against my return. My tax advocate, which I called the week of March 9 when I got my letter, told me this and gave me instructions. (Have my company write a letter and fax it to her) She had them release it because she put the info in front of someone. It’s what the advocates do.
@mmw0315 Did your tax advocate give you a fax number? When I called my local tax advocate they advised me that they needed confirmation of my husbands employment from his employer. I have the letter but no idea to to send it to!
