How often does the IRS update refund info on Where's My Refund? I know that they update on Wednesday, but do they update on Sunday also? I e-filed on 1/14 and my federal was accepted on 1/16. On 1/19 I got info on the WMR saying that I should receive my refund by February 1st. Since it says by 2/1, I'm thinking that it should be that the IRS is sending it out on Friday the 28th and depending on my bank, it should be in my account by 2/1.
In the past, the Where's My Refund usually stated a statement that the refund was processed and the direct deposit would be (let's say January 28th) and then it would state if you do not receive your refund by (let's say February 1), check with your bank to see if they received it and then call us back on 2/1/11.
What has me confused, is that some people are posting on this site that Where's My Refund says January 28th for their refund date, and a lot of people are saying that Where's My Refund says BY FEBRUARY 1st. Does that mean that the posters who received the 1/28/11 date, that their refund was already processed and the people who received the BY FEBRUARY 1ST, their refunds are still being processed and the date could change?
Where's my Refund does say that your return is being processed and if there are no processing delays or you don't owe any other taxes, you should receive your refund by 2/1/11. I know the IRS doesn't want a million calls, but they used to give more info than that.
I remember last year that for my refund, it said that my refund would be direct deposited on 1/26/10 and if I didn't receive it by 1/31/10 to check with my bank and then call them back. Does the IRS still update to show the actual direct deposit date?
Has the info changed for anyone that had the 2/1 date? Are you getting any statements saying YOUR RETURN WAS PROCESSED AND YOU SHOULD RECEIVE YOUR REFUND ON ..............................., 2011?
