I filled on january 30 why hasn't the IRS accepted my federal refund?
- Brati , I filed my fed on 1-9-13
All im seeing is pending its been over a week Saturday and its still pending which makes no sense, some have said it has something to do with the new push back to file date but I filed on the 31st so there should be no reason to pay for a rapid refund when its not very rapid at all this year, normally within 14 days I have my refunds, this yr im still pending and heard some returns will not get refunds till march?????
I filed mine on 01/22 and it has been accepted. I received an email stating that since I filed and used the American Opportunity Tax Credit, there is going to be a delay and the IRS will review it when they "are ready." This is total BS and I need my money! They are quick to take it from me but not to give me back what is mine...

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.
