What if the irs website just says still processing and gives a topic code ? Is something wrong

Most returns are being issued within twenty-one days or less. However, some cases can take longer. The IRS does not go by first in, first out. One thing in particular that is affecting filers this year is the PATH act. If you claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or Additional Child Tax Credit, those refunds are not said to begin being issued until February 27th, 2018. You can see more information by reviewing the TurboTax FAQ below regarding the PATH act. If twenty-one days or more have elapsed and you are not claiming these credits, I would suggest you contact the IRS directly so they can investigate your case. You can call 1(800) 829-1040 to reach the general IRS line.
