Those of us that filed and got patched through early before 1/28 were thrown into Error Resolution department on accident. He said they have been working diligently to get those out of that department and processed.They said TT should have not batched us through early that's what caused this whole mess. We essentially got lost in the system and stuck in error control. My whole point all along.
The man was extremely nice even helped me and gave me the name of another tax preparer that the IRS approves to use next year. He gave me advice on my school, he said he went to the same school I did so I may have been speaking to the Dallas office.
He also said that my return (As well as everyone else that TT have haphazardly patched through early) was in the last step of the error resolution department which is the Correction part of system. He said not to expect anything this week. But he thinks by Monday or Tuesday they will have all of them fixed and on the way for a DD. They will be open Monday as they have most every year.
The system is still working returns so it could be by Monday that we receive a DD. He apologized for the wait and said he understood especially waiting for this to be done so I can file my FASFA for school. I said well if you could talk to the big guys up stairs and patched mine through I would appreciate it. I told him many of us have joined a support group in order to deal with this and we are all patiently waiting.
He told me he does have some pull but not sure how that much but he will see what he can do. Very nice man, and at least I know now that nothing may not happen until at least Monday or Tuesday when they resolve the issue with us being stuck in error resolution. And maybe he will by the grace of GOD batch mine through. :) That would be so nice of him. :) So that's it folks. Everyone try to relax for the weekend and look for a change Monday or Tuesday. He did ask that we not check the WMR but once a day because it's clogging up the system and causing it to be delayed which is giving inaccurate information.
At night is when it is updated. HE said always check then. I know this is true because my status changed at 7pm central time last time.
Just had DOC5108 post a comment to me here https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1668469-today-is-february-14th-and-i-was-told-by-turbo-tax-that-my...
and then closed the thread? Wow I am losing even more faith in TT, when I didnt have much left to begin with. Freakin jerks!
I don't think no one should point the finger. Because at the end of the day if you can say you are expecting a refund. ...your lucky. most blue collar and white collar americans strive hard to earn that green. some wont get it reimbursed in a form of a refund ( tax free). I think people shouldnt check their status more than once or twice at the most a day. because 50% of the time you are left with disappointment and confusion. irs attitude is nothing new. there human beings not robots. yeah things could of been ran better yeah handled better yeah prepared better. but hey irs employees are not ( that old show when they turned that man into a machine) lol. wish they were. but basically stop eggin because either way us treasury has to cough up millions of refunded money. smile

WASHINGTON —The Internal Revenue Service has a message for taxpayers eager to learn the status of their tax refund: Please don't check the IRS website every five minutes -- once a day is enough.
The IRS said its "Where's my refund?" website and smartphone app are being overwhelmed by eager taxpayers.
The agency said its systems are only updated once a day, usually overnight, and the same information is available the website, the IRS2go smartphone app and IRS toll-free phone lines.
To avoid delays, the agency said the best time to check on refunds is evening and weekends.
The IRS said nine out of 10 taxpayers typically receive refunds in less than 21 days when they file returns online and get refunds deposited directly into bank accounts.
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.
