yup, some folks were lucky like myself to have them accepted early. They won't be processed for payment though until the 30th so it's still a waiting game...
  • It appears so. My phone woke me up in the middle of the night to show the good news. Now will we get our returns sooner? Your guess is as good as mine, but I will hope for sooner.
  • I keep being told that those accepted are with the "test batch" to test the new system... I've been told they are being processed... Not sure though. Mine was accepted today
  • Mine was accepted last week but no new news to tell :/
  • Just wanted to share that I got accepted today and I signed into the where is my refund via irs and it says:
    We have received your tax return and it is being processed.
    You should get your refund within 21 days from the date we received your tax return.

    Here is to hoping we all get a dd soon
  • The Internal Revenue Service begun accepting returns January 24th, 2014.

    We have received hundreds of reports that the I.R.S. has been accepting tax returns before January 31st, 2014. It seems that they have started accepting select few income tax returns on January 24th 2014. We contacted the I.R.S. on that day and were told that to help with the case load, they have accepted some returns early. They plan is to accept returns all next week that meet very strict rules. We have adjusted our 2014 IRS E-File Cycle Chart to match with the reports that we have received.

    Please comment on here when you were accepted, so that we can keep see if they do a pay out on January 29th. This would be in line with 2012 and 2011 tax returns.

    From Hot Springs Tax Services: “We have had several clients who filed within the last two weeks have their Federal Tax Returns accepted by the I.R.S. We have received news from the IRS that first payout date will be February 5th still. The early acceptance just means that they will process it before returns that come in a later date. Just a reminder, there are no guarantees when it comes to the I.R.S. We also have had several reports of people receiving their 2013 state income tax return in. This has come from several states. We have had two of our clients report receiving theirs in Arkansas.”

    From the I.R.S. Where’s My Refund website:

    “We have received your tax return and it is being processed.

    You should get your refund within 21 days from the date we received your tax return.”

    I got an accepted email today too.  From what I keep reading is the IRS did a test run. There is NO confirmation whether or not we will get our refunds any time soon as it has not been confirmed if they truly are processing them or if they are just holding them until the earlier stated January 30th acceptance/processing date.

    BTW it was for Federal, I did not file State.
    • They did this last year and those few got their refunds deposited about a week before everyone else!
    • Lets hope :-) mine was accepted today too........
    • Did u get a refund date? Because they said I should get mine by feb.14th
    • Well that's what TT app says for me.  Is thAt where you got that date?  At this point I am not believing anything until there is solid proof.
    • My federal was accepted as well today and when I checked the app on my phone it said my expected refund date was before feb 20. My state refund is still pending.
    • I was accepted on feb 2 and have DD of feb 11

    My fiance and I return was accepted today as well.. they said we should have our refund b4 Feb.15,13. The IRS will still not process the payment until Jan. 30
    • My federal and state return was accepted as well, who is "they" when you say "they said we should have our refund b4 feb 15?
    • As far as January 30th, processing date, is that just for the Federal Tax Return or is that for the State Returns as well?? I received an email Jan. 23rd saying that IRS had accepted my State return, I was kind of hoping that I would get that by Feb. 1st..
    • I filed my state on martin luther king day, monday, and received it on thursday night by DD. Just filed my federal today. I was told if you file your federal before the processing date, that those people were getting audited. It's because of the lady somewhere on west coast, Seattle I think, who defrauded the IRS for almost close to a million dollars I think. I dont know she did it, but she was able to do it. Look it up and you will see. So that's why I waited until today, the 30th. I use netspend, because you always get your money a little sooner than they say. I was told last year that I would have my federal back in 7 days by DD, and got it in 5 days instead!!!

      • Once you go to IRS site click where's my refund it will lead you to this message...

        The 2014 filing season will begin January 31, 2014. We will begin accepting and processing returns and refunds on that date. There is no advantage to filing on paper before the opening date and you will receive your refund much faster by using e-file with direct deposit. Once the filing season begins, the IRS expects to issue more than 9 out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days.

         
        Under federal law, all tax payment and filing deadlines remain in effect. This includes the April 15 deadline for most taxpayers.

        However stroll down you will see...

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
