I agree not just turbo I called yesterday she said almost everyone is being held additional time because of so many People filing kids they ain’t supposed to. Mine has a freeze because before me and my husband were married he owed taxes(which btw they took last year to pay off) but they put hold on it to make sure everything was clear and no balance which she also said shows nothing due. If it’s clear they should automatically lift my hold but it takes 2-3 weeks! Mine didn’t even start processing till the 24!
Provided you did not claim the EITC, and there are no issues, then you should be receiving your refund by March 9th. Now if you did claim the EITC, then it is taking an extra 2-3 weeks for the IRS to process these. Good Luck
Goodluck because turbo tax didnt ask anyone this year if they had health insurance for 2019 and it's held up millions of peoples taxes according to the irs so I would suggest calling the irs all though it takes weeks to be able to talk to someone from my experience. this is the whole reason why I have been waiting 35 days still no return to be told I have to wait another 8 weeks!!!!!
@Tonbl You know what I didn’t even realize that till you mentioned it! I use them every year and it always ask but this year it didn’t but i didn’t gross enough that I would have a penalty or anything. Mine isn’t being held up for that tho it’s something else but you are right about it I’ve noticed a lot of people having to send in that form after the fact
Yeah they aren't holding it for a penalty they are holding it because its required turbo tax ask that question for 2019 its does not matter moving forward but 2019 it was still a required question for them to ask. Yeah I definitely havent got my taxes still so I'm extremely ticked off.
Shortly after I posted this afternoon I received an eviction notice and electric disconnect notice. I called the Tax Payer Advocate Service after a 2.5 hr wait I spoke with a agent she seemed nice she nice I explained my situation to her she put me on hold for about 10 min she told me she had contacted my states local advocate service and they would contact me in 5 to seven days I went ahead and explained my situation that my electric was to be disconnected on 3/9/20 that wold be to late her reply was cant you just tell them that it is on its way no I replied because it is not on its way the IRS told me it would still be another 45 days after March 9th. There is no help from anyone.See you all on the streets because they do not care what happens to people.
@Tonbl What I meant was that mine wasn’t held for anything to do with the insurance stuff at all mine is held because in previous years before me and my husband were married he had filed separate and owed money which they took last year to resolve but for some reason this year they still held it to make sure nothing else was owed which the lady from irs told me it shows no balance but it would still be held for like 2 weeks. But turbo did not ask me about the insurance like it does normally. But irs wasn’t holding mine for that reason. This is ridiculous this year tho and tons of people are screwed because of turbo this year!
@kyreacher I know the struggle I had to get advocate last year. It does take time tho but now when I got one last year they contacted me like 2 days later and within a week of it all I had my check! Maybe it will get done soon for you best of luck! In the meantime try local places in your area to see if someone could help. We have places here in Alabama that do not sire where you are or if you have that.
