Today is the day I was supposed to receive my refund. I received letter from irs about identity verification before I receive my refund. Lajit??

 Hi.This is an attempt by the IRS to protect you from potential identity theft and is a part of their ongoing efforts to prevent fraud. Unfortunately, the only way to have your refund released is to verify your identity via the 2 methods they provide. See IR-2015-54 for more info here: https://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/Taxpayers-Receiving-Identity-Verification-Letter-Should-Use-IDVerif....

I don't want to get your hopes up too much, but some taxpayers are reporting that they received their refund in 7 days after verifying their ID. See https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/3086964.

However, the IRS states that it will take 6 weeks to process your return: https://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Employees/Understanding-Your-5071C-Letter

We'll continue processing your tax return once we verify your identity and confirm that you submitted the return. If you did file the return, please know it will take approximately 9 weeks to process it once you verify your identity.

I don't understand what you guys don't get about this. If your tax return was flagged for a potential identity fraud and you had to confirm by two forms of identity, you will receive your return in 9 weeks. So stop asking where the hell your tax return is and do a little research stop being so dumb.
