I just received the following TurboTax text message:
News!....Your federal return was accepted early by the IRS. Check your
email for a confirmation message"....I confirmed email message and
logged onto TurboTax and confirmed "Accepted" efile status....good luck
with your efile........
And before this post gets all crazy I just want to confirm with you right away that I personally have talked to at least 2 people who know over 4 people/family/friends who got accepted Tuesday and Wednesday and have their full refunds already......don't listen to anyone saying nothing is being processed until 1/30 because clearly that is not correct information.....I got accepted yesterday ;) Good Luck!
I think some people DIDNT get their refunds earlier. Some people just want to give other people high hopes for something that won't happen....#SetUp!!! lol. Just kidding, I don't know about getting it in two days. Or the next day.
Yes, the IRS has been running some tests on their system and accepting some returns. However, they have warned that their 21-day "semi-guarantee" of a refund starts from 1/30/2013 in these cases, not from the date of acceptance. So being accepted early is no guarantee of your refund coming any faster.
The automated system is set to start processing refunds Jan 30th. 1.5 more days of waiting folks!
If you are having trouble viewing online "where's my refund" call the 800 # listed. It worked for me....I was accepted 1/25 and my direct deposit date is 2/1
I filed on the 17th with TA. I was accepted on the 25th. I couldn't get into WMR at all yesterday. I was able to get info from the 800 # but it was just the standard canned answer (said my return was accepted and my refund should be expected within 21 days from the date of acceptance). This morning WMR says that the return is being processed. I decided to check the irs2go app out. The app says my refund is being processed. My return was a simple, HOH, 1 dependent and student loan interest. I am very hopeful that those of us who were accepted last week and have DD will receive our refunds by tomorrow. So far the IRS has done something different than what they said they would do and it has worked in my favor (e.g. student loan interest form not avail until Jan 18th-not true, avail on 17th. No returns being accepted until Jan 30th-not true, I was accpeted on the 25th) and it sounds like most of the people here have experienced the same. Hopefully the DD of our refunds will be no different!! Best wishes to you all. May we all be blessed with something extra in our bank accounts very soon!!!
MY FREIND ALREADY RECEIVED HER FEDERAL REFUND YESTERDAY 1/29/2013
I'm new to this thread but here is what the IRS told me after waiting on 4 25 minutes...some refunds were selected 2 test the new system but not all that were selected early were necessarily processed. I filed the 10th got accepted the 24th & as of 8am PST WMR says I'm being processed by the IRS but I have no refund date! This is crazy but I'll just have 2 be patient. Last year I got my refund a week after I was accepted hopefully its the same this year. If anyone finds out any other info please let me know. I see some people are saying they have a DD. Every1 have a blessed day!!!
My god its painful. ..our luck is awful. I soooo wish I was one of the ones accepted 3 days ago and filed 4 ago that has a dd. I filed the 19th and accepted 25th with nothing. And no ed credits
I've done 2 sets of taxes and the 1st was accepted on 26th and this morning it has DD For 2/4 It was HOH with 2 dependants the second was MFJ with 2 dependants accepted on 30 no date yet

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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
