what is tax topic 152? does that mean i will be getting my refund soon?
Thank You for using Turbo Tax. I see you have a question on Tax topic 152. This is your option for receiving you refund,either by direct deposit, paper check or U.S. Saving Bonds.
If you e-file a complete and accurate tax return, your refund should be issued within 21 days of the received date. This time frame does not include mail and IRS handling time for paper returns. A complete and accurate paper tax return refund will usually be issued within six to eight weeks from the date it is received.
For more information on your refund, go to this link.
Topic 152 is purely informational. It shows up when the IRS has pulled your return and it's in progress. When they've finished, your status will change to approved and an estimated direct deposit date will populate on WMR.
If 21 days has passed and your status has not changed and you haven't received your refund, your return could possibly be in review. You will more than likely receive correspondence from the IRS informing you what needs to be done if they're auditing you or info letting you know your refund is being offset. If you think you owe money you can find out by calling Financial Management Services, they handle offsets for the IRS in regards to student loans, child support and other various reasons. Their number is 1-800-304-3107.
I am just prepping for feb 22nd to hollar and scream. Frustrated....
I filed on 1/30. Received topic 152 on 2/2. On 2/8 I received my ddd for 2/12.
I was accepted on the 28th. Today is Feb.14th... have been at one bar at WMR with the 152. Transcripts *2013 saying I haven't filed taxes this year. I understand that it a process and I am still in line, ut why do others who have filed dyas after get their refunds. Mine was very simple and not complicated. I will hang in. Sure it will happen but eletronic is not any faster the paper. Why pay a company like Turbo Tax to send them in?
iv been waiting since the 28th. was able to order my return transcripts yesterday and finally got approved today!got a ddd for 2/13
Well Finally - no more *2013 I can see my transcripts. Progress. Happy that the process is moving.
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.
