    Does yours say "971 Notice issued"?  Just wondering because I got the same codes (570,971)

    • Any Updates?
    • mine is still the same 1121 er
    • Same here.  

      I'm a 1121 too! Transcripts have two code 570 and one code 971 for $0.00 so in essence that's a good sign....I hope.  I compared previous years transcripts to see a forecast or norm but it doesn't help explain this years.

      After reading several and several pages of tax code explanations a 971 could just be a notice letter sent or a filler to ultimately reverse a freeze on a refund that was issued at one time....got to love the IRS!

    Mine says the same and I am a 1121 er. It did change from previous 570 and the dates changed to 03/10/14 and now I have 971. I did the same and called IRS and they said everything is fine just still processing.

    • Same for me. I called and they said I was under review WTH
    • Any new news on this?
    • now I have 2 570 I give up
    • I have two 570s to @dottie9113! But that's followed by a 971.  All are $0.00 which I believe are good things.....

      If I'm reading the tax code explanations right from the manual found online, it could be a filler during processing to keep the hold (refund freeze) on until processing completes.

    I have the 971/570 codes too, with $0.00 next to them and a processed date of 2/24/14.  I do not have the 1121 error.

    As of this morning,  I have two 570 codes on my transcripts. I still have no 971. Does anyone else have the same.
    • I meant to ask you did you have 1121 error
    • Nope never got That!
    • I have 2 570 codes what does that mean I have never had that before

    • so you did get a chance to speak to them about the 570 code is it something will drop off soon
    • hic4307..i just got conflicting stories, so not at all!!! Did you?
    • Same here.

    • anthony where do you see 971 is a filler to reverse a freeze?
    • I didn't say it is a filler or that the wording was in the link above...I'm just taking an educated saying the TC 971 "could" be a filler during the review process because of the freeze.
    • Ooops my bad Anthony. Ne ways no updates or changes for me so will see what happens this week..
    • You good...the 21 days was over Friday so I'm calling them Monday, 7am EST and inquire more and I'm going to call back every 4-5 hours to see if I'll get conflicting information.

      I had a simple return...no credits...just wages and paid taxes of those wages.
    • This is my 28th day. I was accepted the 26th but irs says the date was the 28th. Got that from many ppl too...

    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.
