Do you mean TT indicates they were "ACCEPTED". This means your return has been sucessfully sent to the IRS and they have received it. Now the IRS needs time to review your return. This by no means indicates any type of audit. All returns need to be reviewed/processed.
It does not - the IRS doesn't audit returns until 1 - 2 years after filed.
What does WMR exactly say? Does it say they are still being processed, or does it say they are being further reviewed.

Those of you that the IRS is holding your EIC are almost certainly going to be examined. Start gathering your documentation now. You have to show relationship (usually done by birth certificates or adoption papers), residency of more than six months, you have to verify your address or addresses and the dates you lived at each address during 2012 and then the children claimed address or addresses and the dates they lived at each address during 2012. If you are claiming EIC based on a handicapped individual then you will need proof of the fact that they were permanentaly and totally disabled during 201. When you get all that together make copies and put 2012 tax year and the social security number of whoever is first on the return. It will be the same as the social security number on the letter you receive. Send the copies to the examination branch listed on the letter. Then the wait begins. Thanks to a 3 year hiring freeze and the sequester you are going to be lucky if your documents are reviewed by August. You will get letters saying 30 days or 60 days but don't believe them. Also there is no sense in calling except for one time about 2 weeks after you send in the documents to make sure they received them. After that they are going to sit on a shelf waiting their turn in line. If you are the father but not married to the mother or on the birth certificate you are finished and wasting your time. You are not related to the children for tax purposes.

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.
