I filed on 2-8 and it was accepted 2-9. The 11th week mark from then would have been 4-27. So I called on 4-29. They told me that it was received and they were still processing but that according to their records it wasn't started until 2-25 and that was the start of the 11 weeks. So from that date I should have an answer about what was happening after 5-13. They put a note on my account to make sure that it would be looked at.
I called them again on 5-13 and the lady told me that it was finished and approved for full amount the week prior. She couldn't give me a date but said that I should hopefully receive my refund in 2-3 weeks and that they were running behind.
I went ahead and called again this morning (5-16) to see if they could give me a more accurate date. It is now scheduled to be deposited on 5-20.
I filed electronically my return and the 8379 form at the same time and this was my first year of doing it. I called 1-800-829-0582 Ext. 462 each time I spoke to them. My best advice is to call frequently and ask specific questions each time. Hopefully this helps if anyone is still waiting and wondering. Also I asked them when I called on 5-13 if my Where's My Refund (WMR) status would be updated and they said it should but that with them being behind it doesn't always update. After I talked them this morning it was updated to state my deposit date. So I would suggest calling to get an answer rather than checking the WMR site.
I finally received a DDD this morning for 4/19, after being accepted on 1/24 and waited till 2/14 due to education credit. I had the IS form taken off on 4/10 since I did not need it. I was told that after the 11th week that you needed to call back and ask for a TA. I was also told it was 11 weeks form acceptance date and then form 2/14 then from the date my returns was accepted by IS department on 2/25. I did read in the IRS website that it is from acceptance date but who knows… I hope you all get your DDD soon.
15 weeks go by and nothing. Not even update on the "where's my amended return site". I call. They recieved amended return on 3/4/2013, but that's it. Nothing was ever done on it and no one knows why.
The worst part is They claim there is no record of any injured spouse form being submitted anywhere. I tell them they were attached that if there's one there's the other. Nope, No record I have to do it again. But miraculously the amended return site shows some action a day later, but says I have to call with my return. I am on hold now for 20 minutes........
I am curious......we show donations to the Mormon church and are conservative republicans. They aren't targeting the every day joe also are they? For those that got theirs already are you democrat or liberal? Just curious. Not likely but with chicago politics who knows

This is our first year submitting form 8379. We filled our taxes back in February and a couple weeks later received an offset letter due to my student loans. My husband made most of the income. We filled it out and mailed it in after receiving the offset letter. About 3 weeks later I called and was told they had only received the form on 3/8 and was told to call back 8 business weeks after 3/8. I happen to call a week early and again was told that the 8 weeks were up that Friday and to call back that following Monday. So I called back on Monday 4/29 and explained to them that i had already called and was told my form was received on 3/8 and was told to call on 4/29 which was right after my 8 weeks. The lady that answered said she did not know why i had been told to call back in 8 weeks if the process could take anywhere from 11-16 weeks and told me to call back after 11 weeks. I decided to call back the next day and that lady was a little more helpful. She put me on hold to research our information and finally came back and apologized for the delay and said typically it would take 8 weeks since I submitted my form after filing our taxes and receiving my offset letter but did see a note on my account stating that they needed 45 days to process our form and also told me they were behind on processing the forms this year. She kindly told me my 45 days would be up on 5/10 and asked me to call first thing today 5/13. She told me that if nothing had been done with my return, they could submit a referral which would allow them 30 days.. So that is what i did at 7am this morning. Called and the guy that answered saw the note where it stated for me to call. He apologized and said that my claim was still being worked on and there was nothing he could do. I told him the lady i spoke to last week mentioned submitting a referral so he put me on hold to speak to someone and then came back and said ok i will submit the referral for you. So he did...so NOW I have to allow them up to 30 days to do something with my refund. This has been so frustrating, as we were depending on our refund to get on our feet. Has anyone had to request to have a referral submitted and if so, will i see something within 30 days? Does this by chance speed up the process or do they wait till that last day they have to process the form?
