Still waiting for our tax return , filed injured spouse on Feb. 14. When can we expect the return

Is the number [phone number removed]? I tried calling today and when I tried to get to a live person it said that this number doesn't have any trained reps to answer questions.  I am having the same problem that all of you are having.  I filed my IS form in mid March and have received no response of any kind.  Last year I had a response in about a month, if that.

Yes, stay on that line, they transfer you to an individual accounts rep.

You are a life saver. I got through in 12 minutes or so and they told me the payment was approved. Said it might be another 30 days before I actually receive it.

Thanks so much!

So I'm sure everyone that's been waiting on an IS claim since march will get the same answer probably huh? I haven't received any kind of response since sending the IS form out after being offset and can't find anything on how the process even goes, like if you're an IS there shouldn't be any other issues besides them being behind right? Do you get a letter beforehand or just wait and see..

I got a letter of approval a month ago. I called today again and they said they had to make 3 adjustments that it is on it's way to me. They said they will pay any interest for waiting so long aswell. After getting approved the lady said it takes around 4-6 weeks that on the 5th week is when most people get it so around August 1rst or 2nd I should recieve my check and I filed at the end of feb for my inj spouse claim lol. Atleast it finally is getting done.

And that was talking directly to an injured spouse form specialist. So after you are approved or you find out expect anywhere from 4-6 weeks before getting tyour refund or calling to see what the hold up is.

I am a bit confused. When I filed originally I filed for direct deposit. Will the injured spouse force it to be a check? Or will I still get my direct deposit like I put when I filed my taxes and injured spouse together?

As far as I know you should get it direct deposited if that is what you requested when filing the form with your taxes. I filed after due to not noticing the offset on my taxes. Have never had one or dealt with this before but a student loan my wife took out when she was 19 I guess caught up with her 7 years laters. So from what I have read up on yes ypu should be getting it direct deposited.

Have you heard anything about yours yet? I filed in April and I am going through exactly what everyone else is. Just curious if anything has happened for anyone else yet

I have, I am getting my check at around the end of this month. I have had to call and bug them numerous times. I filed mine at the end of Feb. So the process takes a very long time. Just keep calling and bugging them.

I file my injured spouse form on March 31st. Finally after waiting over 2 1/2 months I called them on June 17 just to find out it had been recieved and assigned to someone and if I don't recieve anything in the mail in 30 days to call back. Then on July 12 I got a letter (dated July 10th) stating how much I was getting back and that I should have my refund in a couple of weeks.
When I think a couple of weeks I think 2 weeks but what I'm reading for all your comments that its actually 4-6 weeks?

Yes, that would be correct. When I talked to the injured spouse specialist directly she stated that it is recommend waiting between 4-6 weeks before calling back to see where the money might be if not received yet. She said that typically 90% of people receive their refund 5 weeks after receiving the approval letter.
