After you file

Direct from the IRS ... stop wasting your time with the codes on transcripts ... at anytime the return could be pulled for a review and the code may or may not change right away ...  and calling the IRS prior to next week will and should get you hung up on ... the IRS is short staffed and overworked so "looking up" something you can get online is a waste of their time.  

 

Will calling you help me get my refund any faster?
No. Our phone and walk-in representatives can only research the status of your refund 21 days after you filed electronically; 6 weeks after you mailed your paper return; or if Where’s My Refund?directs you to contact us.

 

Will Where’s My Refund? show me when I’ll receive my refund?
Where’s My Refund? will give you a personalized date after we process your return and approve your refund.

 

 

Will ordering a transcript help me find out when I’ll get my refund?
A tax transcript will not help you find out when you’ll get your refund. The information transcripts have about your account does not necessarily reflect the amount or timing of your refund. They are best used to validate past income and tax filing status for mortgage, student and small business loan applications, and to help with tax preparation.
