Filed 1/15 accepeted 1/26 - Still Processing.

Any one accepted 1/26 and have EIC and/or sizable refund been approved yet?  I am still in the processing bar stage.  I tried to call the IRS today to get an updated status and the woman would not even look at my file.  I read on another post that they were delaying all EIC refunds for 28 days and that we would be contacted by mail.  I did search google and I did find ONE website with that statement but I am not all together sure its valid.  Does any one else have any knowledge on that? 


    I have an update!  My status bars had disappeared completely yesterday....this morning they are back with my DDD of 2/20!  I have checked my bank and its not there yet, but at least I know its on the way.  I filed 1/15 accepted 1/26 and was showing just the one bar with the code 152 from that day till yesterday.  

    • Mines disappeared yesterday too but still no update still no bars..
    • Mine are gone as well and still no update.
    • i got a update yesterday ddd 2/20
    • I still have the generic message "your tax return is being processed.  A refund day will be provided when available".
    • bars disappeared 4 or 5 days ago, approved 1/24 no update yet
    • After waiting 40 minutes waiting to speak to an IRS agent he researched my account and all he could tell me was that there was a delay in processing and I should get my refund by March 10th and if not then call them back. UUGHHHH
    • I received my refund yesterday.  It was scheduled for today.
    • So I got my refund approved but on the IRS page it states that my refund will be mailed to me.  I signed up for DD

    I have the Same exact Problem!! What is going on I was excepted the 26 and nothing has change since.. I'm in Florida


      My return was accepted on 1/26 and it is still in the processing stage.  I called the IRS and the gentleman stated that he can't give me an answer until it moves to the next stage(Refund Approved).  I have yet to get my Federal Refund.  I did receive my State Refund two weeks ago.  Feeling frustrated.


        Accepted 1/24!!!! Bars disappeared like 4 days ago

        • Me too I don't understand everytime I called the irs number they tell me to wait until 21 days is up.

        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.
