  • Thank you very much for sharing !!!
  • Sorry, that was to Ellyn Welker - I do have a depreciation form from  a rental property.
  • You're welcome :)
  • DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHATS GOING ON ?? UGH
  • call the HOLDS dept and be super sweet and you will get answers.. if you say that you can't get any info on the WMR website and you feel something isn't right and maybe there is a hold they will start looking it up.. that number is 1-866-897-3315.  I just got off the phone with them ten minutes ago.  MINE IS ON HOLD because I didn't have to file taxes last year and I didn't get married until this year.. they thought I was pulling one over on them.. lol.  I was claimed as a dependant 2011 and 2012 I am married to the one who claimed me as a dependant the previous year.  It was more of a safe guard than anything but man it took three reps later to tell me that.

    Oh and mine won't be released for 2 to 3 weeks from now they had to put a release code on it.  And if anyone has education credits it wouldn't do any good to call in because they won't know anything until they process it.

    If you was able to order your return transcript at least 2 to 3 days ago and don't have a DDD then you should call. If you just ordered your transcript yesterday then I would wait for the WMR to update  :)  This department is VERY VERY POLITE!!!
  • dcpsap2012 I JUST CALLED THE IRS THEY ARE CLOSED AT  7PM EST I CANT GET ANT ANSWERS FROM THEM IAM UNABLE TO ORDER A TRANSCRIPT.. ONE PERSON TELLS ME THE 13TH THE OTHER PERSON TELLS ME I  HAVE NO DUE DATE
  • Ashley, you'll get it when you get it.  If its a simple return, then it'll probably be 2 weeks.
  • Well I didn't even call the HOLDS department until 7:30 pm and they answered I spoke to rep 1000180xxx, a male in the HOLDS department.  He is very helpful and kind and gave me all my answers.
  • My return was accepted 01/28 and  it wasn't  processed until the 4th because of the amount of returns at the irs , the wmr doesn't show a date for me but when I called the irs this morning the rep gave me a date of 02/13. Hope this helps.
  • Filed mine one week ago and have not heard anything back.....so much for 24 to 48 hours.
  • me too i got 2/13 when i doubled checked the other rep said that was false i have no due date i only have one orange bar filled on the irs website
  • debchickey on the irs website how full is your orange bar?
  • Thank you so much!!
  • The wmr is showing 21 days for me.  But the rep said 02/13 and that my refund didnt get accepted til 02/04 although turbo tax said 01/28. So there is some kind of delay for some folks. Best regards.
  • My orange bar is stuck on acceptance only
  • I had an orange bar after my return was accepted on the 31st but as of 2 days ago I'm only receiving a message stating that my return is being processed. Anyone know what this means?
  • I can only guess that the irs just started to process your return because I got accepted  on 01/28 and they didnt start to process mine to 02-04.  I guess maybe your were in limbo and they are processing your return now dont know for sure .
  • if you can order a return transcript for 2012 does it mean everything went ok?
  • Dont know for sure but alot of people are saying when there able to order transcript the next day or two they get a dd date on the wmr. I would just call 1-800-829-0582 x362 and ask a live rep. you will feel better knowing exactly whats going on I did.
  • thank you so much! my federal was accepted on 2/6 my state is still pending as of yesterday i couldn't order my 2012 return transcript now  i  can.
  • I was able to order my transcript Tuesday night around 10 pm...  HOWEVER, I just found out tonight (Friday) that there is a Hold on my refund regardless of ordering that return transcript they did not give a refund date and won't.  So If you get a DDD soon within two business days I would say your good to go...  On the third day I would call the HOLDS dept with the IRS and ask if there is a hold.

I'm having the exact same issue, I really wish this would be addressed, even if just to say this is normal for this year and let us know how long it's really going to take.

So like wtf so i need to call or irs or is this happeneing to everyone?
  • I bet the IRS did not get your return until February fourth just like everybody else they filed on the 31st
  • maybe but like on turbo tax said accepted the next day
  • its so upseting that the  irs cant give me straight answers ugh@!
  • agreed
  • what does it mean when you can order your refund 2012 return transcript
  • I filed on the 31st as well and the IRS told me that my tax return was not accepted until feb 4th. So if this is possible when should we expect a refund? The software or cmpainies that we are using are lying to us. They send us the email that says we were accepted but the irs has the actual date when they accepted the return so you have to go with thier date. Not the email from the e file provider.
  • where do i get the irs date??
  • When the irs says it's accepted that means they didn't reject it because of wrong numbers, ssn's, names , ssn numbers already used in fling for this tax season etc..  processing means it's in the system and it's getting looked over..if they don't see anything wrong.. they will approve a refund.. then it will go up for refund sent.... they can accept a return one day and not do anything with it for several depending on the load that they have which depending on how the rep is looking at it they will either say they got it on the 24th in Q or they got it on the 30th for process....  The IRS accepted mine on the 24th verified tonight with IRS holds dept.  The IRS started processing mine on the 30th with hundreds of thousands of others then when they were finished with it "they found reason to put a hold on it"  per the holds dept.  It was an error in their system but regardless it was flagged and sent off the the "holds' dept.  My hold didn't get over there from processing until Tuesday at the close of business (they started processing mine on the 30th) if that tells you how far they were behind on processing. Keep in mind during all this madness I was attempting over and over again to order my return transcript.. which did happenTuesday night at 10 pm, just after they were finished with it in regular processing.  If a rep doesn't look deep enough into the Q, and only look for processing yeah they will probably tell you they don't have it.. when in fact they most likely do.  There is going to be sooooo many people having to amend their returns because of a whacky system this year and it's sad and very frustrating for everyone that is getting basically well I won't say the word I am thinking~ lol.  But anyway...  I suggest if you filed before Feb 1st to give IRS holds dept a call because there is no reason those shouldn't be finished UNLESS you have the education credits or others on the list of hold ups.  I had no idea there was a hold on mine I got the number from another site and said "I think there is something wrong with my return because WMR what tell me anything and I was accepted way back on the 24th with a simple return".  He asked for all the info and wham!  Info I needed !  They put the release code on it and now it's wait for the refund all over again.. lol.

    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.
