2/6/14 refunds delayed?

Hey everyone,

So I originally showed that I would receive my direct deposit on 2/6/14, but instead on that day the message at WMR changed to an alert of some kind with the following text: 


>>>>>>>>

Above that was an alert with a red exclamation point that said "TAKE ACTION' in red followed by: Please see below for additional info on your refund. 


I called the number, and other than expressing that other peoples refunds were delayed, the woman on the line, who was very polite by the way, could not offer me any information on why I had an error code. 


Also my friendly little bar with submitted, accepted, approved is gone. Before I had been approved with a refund Direct Deposit Date of the 6th. 


Any help would be grand.

    Don't know. I got the same BS after it said it was sent to my bank.

        and here is the link to the p-freeze which is what code 1121 is and why we all get different answers when we call irs

          I just got off the phone with the IRS and was told that there was glitch and that a group of people were told that there refunds were processed and to be deposited on 2/6/14. Some of those actually did get dd but the majority of the group was given false information.


          These returns are now on HOLD and they stated they are not even doing anything with them until the 21st and that I could call back after that and get a status.


          They stated that our refund will take longer than it should and that all they could say was sorry and that at least they caught their mistake early.

          • I call bull on not doing anything until after the 31st (not saying you are lying). If they make a mistake, they should fix it in a timely fashion!! Are they going to be paying us penalties and interest?

            I read about the 1121-p freeze on the IRS website. It generally means one of two things.
            1. You or your bank have returned the deposit/check for any number of reasons.
            2. Possible identity theft and even after a 21+ 60 day wait, they are still instructed to take no action to release the funds.
            Now, they could just be using it as general code in this instance and it seems this is more likely as there is NO WAY that pretty much everyone set up for DD on 2/6 are possible identity theft victims and if we are they should be telling us.
          • Catching it "early" would mean that it would have never happened and we would have had our refund on time.
          • You guys should check out the other thread on here under "Where's my refund status change!" I have posted more info on there which may help you all out.

            It is in regards to cycle dates and how to find out on your own when your refund will post.

              I called the IRS and they said that there was no errors, but they couldn't tell me when the refund would be issued. Told me to call back if it wasn't issued by the 20th.

              They are finally saying something about the issue.  I hope this helps...

                Thank you for posting that, Sandra.  I was wondering when they would actually acknowledge the situation!  They fail to mention that their site went as far as to say our refunds were deposited, but never were!  sighh, keep checking!

                  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.
