12 Reasons You Haven’t Received Your Tax Refund

If you’re lucky enough to receive a tax refund this year, you’re probably eager to receive it.

The IRS says it should take 21 days to issue a refund once it has been processed.

If it has been longer than this, several factors may be holding it up. Before you start to panic, take into consideration the process and what is going on with your paperwork.

Check Your Tax Refund Status

Before you panic, find out the IRS status of your refund.

If it’s been at least 24 hours since the IRS received your e-filed tax return, or four weeks after mailing a paper return, you can visit IRS.gov and click on the “Check My Refund Status” link.

You can also call the IRS Refund Hotline six weeks after mailing a return or 21 days after e-filing to find out the status of your refund: 1-800-829-1954.

If your refund status shows that your refund has been sent, but you haven’t received it there are some additional steps you’ll need to take depending on the method you were to receive your tax refund to locate and receive the money:

Tax refund by check

If you were getting your refund by check, it’s possible the check was lost or stolen in the mail. You will need the IRS to trace the refund for you.

If your tax filing status is married filing jointly, complete IRS Form 3911 (Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund) and mail it to the same IRS service center that you would file your paper return.

If your tax filing status is single, head of household, or married filing separate, call the IRS Refund Hotline (1-800-829-1954) and report your refund as lost via the automated system or while speaking to an IRS representative, or use the Check My Refund Status link on the IRS website, or the IRS2Go mobile app to request a trace for a paper check refund that has not been received.

Tax refund by direct deposit

If you were supposed to get your refund via direct deposit and have not after 21 days, you could have made a mistake when entering your bank account number and routing number.

If you've made errors on your return the IRS does not have to fix them for you, so you will need to call your bank to find out what to do in this situation.

If your bank is unwilling to help, file IRS Form 3911, (Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund) with the IRS for help getting the funds returned to you.

1. Government Shutdown

The 2018-2019 government shutdown caused the IRS to have very limited operations for 35 days from Dec. 22, 2018 to Jan. 25, 2019. This is the same time period that that IRS typically begins accepting tax returns.

However, because of the shutdown, the IRS will begin processing return later than usual, especially as a bit of paper work has piled up while employees were furloughed.

Additionally, if you filed with tax preparation software, note that the returns weren't sent until the IRS were ready to accept the returns. The software held the return until the shutdown was over and the IRS started to accept returns.

2. Review Shows Errors

If a review of your tax return shows errors, your tax refund could be delayed.

Doing it the old fashioned way (a paper return) leads to the possibility that the IRS scanner has trouble deciphering your writing.

If this is the case, your taxes must be reviewed by an actual person, and this can take several days, particularly with fewer professionals working at the IRS due to budget cuts.

Tax information is then entered into a computer and put into a raw data file. An editing program checks it for mistakes, like extra zeros on income or a wrong Social Security number.

3. Victim of Fraud

Aside from errors or being partially complete, the return may, unfortunately, be affected by fraud or identity theft.

If someone else attempts to file taxes using your Social Security Number, or your tax preparer changes your direct deposit information, you could be the victim of fraud. Getting your refund will take longer while the situation is investigated and resolved.

If you think your tax preparer has changed your direct deposit information to receive your refund, file a police report and name the tax preparer as the suspect. Then, fill out IRS Form 14157-A, (Tax Return Preparer Fraud or Misconduct Affidavit), and follow the instructions for additional forms and documents you will need to submit to the IRS to have your refund situation investigated and resolved.

4. Incorrect Information

If any of your information is entered with an error, your tax refund can be delayed. If your employer wrote down different information than what you recorded, it might be another source of the holdup.

5. Form 8379

If you file a joint tax return and all or some of your tax refund was applied to your spouses’ past-due federal or state tax, child or spousal support debts, or student loans, your own refund can be delayed.

Fill out Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, to resolve the situation but note that it can take two and a half months to process.

6. Death of a Spouse

If your spouse has passed away before filing your tax refund and he or she is due a refund, your refund may be delayed if you failed to file IRS Form 1310, (Statement of a Person Claiming Refund Due to a Deceased Taxpayer).

The IRS asks that you do not contact them in an effort to get your refund faster. They recommend you use theirCheck My Refund Status tool to track it yourself.

Every 24 hours, the site is updated, usually in the evening.

You can start checking it 24 hours after e-filing or 4 weeks after it is mailed in. Putting in some personal information will let you know if it’s been approved, and when it’s been sent.

The IRS may need some additional information at times. If they do, they will get in touch with you, usually by mail.

Remember, the IRS never sends emails, nor will they ever reach you by phone. There are a number of tax scams that will target unsuspecting people this way.

7. You Left Something Out

Sending in an incomplete return can significantly delay the receipt of your tax refund.

For instance, if you use paper forms to file your taxes, failing to sign them or omitting any of your personal information, such as your full name or Social Security number, are guaranteed to put the brakes on your refund.

If you have to forward additional information or paperwork to the IRS, it could add weeks or even months onto the processing time.

E-filing can eliminate some of the room for error but it's not foolproof, especially if you have a more complicated return.

Forgetting to include income information from a 1099, for example, can be problematic since the IRS will already have a copy on file.

If the information you've provided doesn't match up with what the IRS has because you overlooked it, they may decide to take a closer look at your return, which would result in a delay of your refund.

8. You Defaulted on a Debt

If you default on an unpaid credit card bill, your creditor can take you to court to collect but when you're in debt to a government agency, they have a much more direct measure for recouping what's owed.

If you've gotten behind on your student loans, have a past due tax bill or you're in arrears for a state-issued child support order, these are all grounds for having your refund offset.

When your refund is set to be seized, you'll receive a notice from the Treasury Department detailing your original refund amount, the amount of the offset and contact information for the agency that's receiving the payment.

If you don't think you owe the debt or you want to dispute the amount that was offset, you'll have to take it up with the agency that laid claim to your refund.
Tip: In addition to losing your tax refund, you may also be subject to wage garnishment if you default on student loans that are backed by the federal government.

9. You Entered the Wrong Bank Account Info

Having your refund deposited directly into your bank account cuts down on the time it takes to get the money since paper checks take longer to be issued but you have to be careful about entering the correct numbers.

Making even a simple mistake can spell disaster for the status of your refund.

How much longer it'll take to get the money depends on the nature of the error. For example, if you leave off a digit of your routing number, the deposit wouldn't pass the IRS's validation check. In that situation, you'd be issued a paper check instead.

If you enter the correct routing number but your account number is wrong, it can go one of two ways.

First, your bank could reject the deposit which means it would go back to the IRS and you'd have to wait until a paper check is sent out.

In the second scenario, the bank could deposit the money into the wrong account.

At that point, the IRS assumes no further responsibility and you'd have to take it up with the bank to get your refund back.

10. You Amended Your Return

In some situations, it may be necessary to amend your tax return after it's been filed. Some reasons why an amendment may be necessary include:

  • You've received a corrected W-2 or 1099
  • You've realized that you made an error in claiming a deduction or dependent
  • You need to change your filing status

If you have to make changes to your return and you're expecting a refund, whether or not you'll be waiting longer depends on if you're going to get more money back.

When you're due a larger refund, amending your return can add 12 to 16 weeks to the processing time.

11. You Claimed the Earned Income Credit

The Earned Income Credit (EIC) is a refundable tax credit that's designed to benefit low to moderate income workers and their families.

Claiming the credit can reduce the amount of tax you owe and increase your refund.

While you shouldn't shy away from claiming the credit if you're eligible, you should be aware that it may take longer to get your refund if you do.

Due to the high number of taxpayers who fraudulently claim the EIC, the IRS pays special attention to returns that include it.

If you're claiming it for the first time or you're getting a much bigger credit than you have in previous years, the IRS will want to make sure that all the information you've provided is correct before releasing your refund.
Tip: If you're owed a refund, you have three years from the filing deadline to get your return in. If you don't claim the money before the window closes, Uncle Sam gets to keep it.

12. You Claimed the Additional Child Tax Credit

The Additional Child Tax Credit is another refundable tax credit that could help anyone who qualifies for the regular Child Tax Credit and has earned income of at least $3,000.

It's another tax credit that are being claimed fraudulently.

Other Reasons for a Delay

If you're certain that you've completed your taxes correctly, your tax refund delay could just be due to the fact that the IRS has cut back its workforce in recent years.

Even though refunds may take a little longer for some taxpayers, the number of audits is expected to go down.

If you've filed by snail mail in the past, consider filing electronically in the future.

Filing electronically will halve the time it takes for you to receive your tax refund -- because the IRS receives your return faster, they’ll start processing sooner.

Finally,  as the golden rule goes for anything:

The earlier, the better.

To increase your chances of getting your tax refund quicker, file as soon as possible.

If you are still unsure where your refund is, contact the IRS Tax Help Line for Individuals - 1-800-829-1040 (TTY/TDD 1-800-829-4059).

<p>Due to the late paper filing and the fact that there was a government shutdown earlier in the year, it may take longer than usual to receive a refund. Have you checked to see if your tax return is in the system being process?</p><p>(Based on previous anecdotal experiences, many late paper filings didn't show up in the "Where's My Refund?" tool and the tax refund check just showed up in the mail.)</p>

<p>I mailed in a W-2 from 2017-2018 on May 8th of this year, I do not owe. the only reason it's so late is my work never mailed the w-2 to me and I had to continue to call and email for a year before someone finally gave me the web address to see my w-2, I recieved my state but not my federal return. I'm not in absolute dire need of the 693.00 that's there but it would be nice to get it at some point.</p>

<p>Have you recieved as of yet.... My b issue is kinda similar. I used to get the ip pin but was not issued for 2017 but they still had me receiving one in system so I had to file by paper.</p>
Monday, 09 Jul 2018 9:25 PM
<p>We paid H&amp;R Block to prepare and file our 2016 taxes, and found out 3 months ago, it was never filed from the IRS. We promptly mailed it in, and are expecting a refund of around $4,500. It's been 10 weeks, and nothing. After a 2 hour hold time to IRS, we found that they supposedly mailed us a notice 10 days ago, which we have yet to receive. In questioning what type of notice, we were told it was to further verify identity. I'm not sure how long they can hold funds that are due to us, or how long is beyond reasonable expectations and when to look for a representative? Is there any actual recourse or rights that we have against the federal government, or are we just screwed?</p>

<p>I am due for a small refund for 2017. I mailed in the tax return in early February. I still have not gotten the refund.</p><p>I did get an envelope from the IRS. And inside that envelope was another envelope, and my W2. There was no letter, or anything else. I wonder why the idiots sent me my W2 with out any explanation. So I sent it back to them in the envelope they provided, asking them why they sent me my W2 without reason. I did not put a stamp on it, so that it would arrive postage due, figuring that might get their attention. hehehe And if it gets thrown away because it has no stamp on it, I don't care. It's not like I'm desperate for the money. But this has got to be very frustrating for people that were counting on their tax return.</p><p>I expect that I should get that tax return sometime in the next couple of years. :-)</p><p>Wayne Sallee<br>Wayne@WayneSallee.com</p>

<p>When you called the IRS did you talk to a human? Because I have called like five times and have only ever talk to a automated system!</p>

<p>i received a letter from the IRS in February stating that my amended refund of 3250 would be issued. It is 4 months later and no refund has been received. What do i do? I keep calling all these toll free numbers and where;s my amended tax refund and they say my social security number is not a valid social!?! Seriously? <br>What do i do?!</p>
Tuesday, 12 Jun 2018 1:16 PM
<p>I am having the same problem. I filed March 15th and still haven't received my federal taxes....I have never ever had this to happen. I've called IRS 3 times since receiving the letter. The letter stated I didn't have to take any necessary actions. Spoke with someone on last week and she said I should hear something by June 11. Checked the status of my refund today and it's still giving me the same message regarding tax topic 152.</p>
Wednesday, 06 Jun 2018 6:03 PM
<p>I filed on February 8th and still have heard anything other than the initial letter stating that they were looking into my return...good luck to you!</p>
Monday, 04 Jun 2018 12:30 PM
<p>Im in the same boat! Filed Jan. 29th and still nothing! Iv been through the 45 day review the 60 day review and now another 60 day review! Everytime iv called its the same thing that someone is working on my return and nothing is showing an error or is pending! The last review they sent off a request to either release my refund or contact me but she said they have 60 days to do so! Im fed up with Irs at this point i dont see why its been almost 5 mos and still no refund and it takes the whole 60 days this time around as well it will be 6-6 1/2 months by the time i finally receive my refund since i filed!</p>
Saturday, 02 Jun 2018 8:20 AM
<p>I filed mine on January 29th and still haven't received mine. Numerous calls to the IRS have gotten me nowhere</p>
Friday, 01 Jun 2018 9:50 PM
<p>Hey Cinn, if it makes you feel any better, I filed my Taxes around mid April and haven't received my Federal refund yet either. I got the State a few weeks ago, but still waiting on the Federal (which is the big one). I'm hoping they're right about June 7th. I would suspect it'd be early to mid June. I wouldn't really start worrying honestly until closer to the end of June. If you don't have it by June 31, then you could start genuinely worrying I think.</p>
Sunday, 27 May 2018 4:37 AM
<p>Can the irs not give your refund check at all even if you don’t owe anything? I’m starting to believe I’m not going to get a refund this year i have filed in mid March an here it is almost August and still no check. I have called and they told me June 7 which doesn’t look like I’ll<br>Have by then either. What is the hold up? Can anyone answer me this question? I’m getting really upset this is the first time this has ever happened and i don’t know what to do. If anyone can help me get a better understanding. Thanks</p>

<p>How long after you posted this did u get ur taxes? Curious bcuz its been 12 weeks still waiting for me</p>
Thursday, 22 Mar 2018 2:37 AM
<p>I disagree. I helped my good friend file her tax return for 2017 and because she had no communication with her former husband with whom she filed a MFJ return for 2016, I believed I could not provide the AGI from the 2016 return she signed as a joint filer, so I gave up too soon and mailed the tax return in. Six weeks+ on and the IRS just says they have "not yet processed" her return. We called the IRS two days ago and he said he could do nothing since they have not yet processed the return. Do I wish I had sent it certified mail with return receipt requested? Yes I do! But if wishes were horses, etc.</p>
Wednesday, 30 Aug 2017 5:30 AM
<p>Filed a 1045 on my personal taxes due to a business loss. Info sent to iRS during March. Here it is a few days away from Septmeber and still no check or deposit from the IRS. I contacted the IRS advocate service and they are investigating. I did this three weeks ago and it will take another week before the IRS has to reply to them but that doesn't necessarily mean that they will be paying me at that time. Who knows, maybe it will be several months yet? I also contacted my senator and rep for assistant yet here I sit almost six months later and still no money. It pisses me off because I have paid every penny to the government on all of my business taxes and I have done it on time! Actually, the IRS just reaches into my account and takes the money. Wish I could reach into theirs....turn about fair play! Plus, heaven forbid if I was late with my payments to them. I would never be able to pay the interest on the late fees! Yet, you can bet IF I receive any extra money from them because they were late, then I am sure it will be a very tiny amount compared to the high interest that I would have to pay them. Drain the swamp and let us get rid of these incompetent government "officials!"</p>
Monday, 07 Aug 2017 1:16 PM
<p>Same here, I filed in February and they sent me a letter saying I needed to call and verify my identity, which i did. Every time I call they say it's still processing and it will take an additional 6 weeks, I've called twice and still don't know what the hold up is.</p>
Friday, 28 Jul 2017 1:35 PM
<p>I filed mine in March. It is now almost August. My status is still processing. My accountant has called and everything. We can't seem to get an answer.</p>
Thursday, 20 Jul 2017 2:33 PM
<p>Im right there with you. We have Christian-based healthcare, which is Obamacare approved. We received a letter back in May stating the IRS needed proof of our coverage, so I sent it in. Since then, we have received other letters from the IRS stating they are still reviewing our return....most recently, a letter stating that they needed an additional 45 days to review our return. I have been calling the Austin, TX number (1-866-897-0177) as listed on our last letter, but end up being on hold forever (40 min) and eventually give up.</p>
Thursday, 13 Jul 2017 1:48 PM
<p>I got a letter saying they didn't get my 1095-A form and form 8962 for my coverage from getting assistance from the health insurance marketplace. I sent the necessary forms to them back in April via mail, it says 6-8 weeks after they received it I'll get my tax return. Now when I check my status all it says is it is being processed and no date when it will be shipped my house. It's been almost 3 months!! I make one mistake now they are taking forever to send it to me.</p>
Monday, 10 Jul 2017 10:52 AM
<p>Is anyone still waiting for tax refund filed mines 3 months ago and still nothing</p>
Monday, 12 Jun 2017 7:03 PM
<p>I still haven't gotten my return. When I called last week they told me they were going to put in a inquiry about it cause they don't know why I still have not gotten mine. It's been over 3 months since I have responded to there letter in the mail.</p>
Thursday, 08 Jun 2017 3:56 PM

<p>Hello, my wife and I filed our taxes efile early march. I got a letter in the mail late March saying we needed to update our information for health insurance. Once we updated that information it was around early April when we sent that information in. (so, we had to amend our taxes). Which meant we got more each for federal. It's been over two months now since we haven't recieved our federal taxes. We recieved our state taxes which is weird, my wife recieved her state taxes back but that was the amount before the amended one. Please help on what we should do. I heard we should call, but I didn't want to call that would put a red flag on our taxes and make it longer. Please any advice would help.</p>

<p>i should have recieved my federal tax return by April 6th. I opened my account outside América a couple of weeks ago, could it be consider as fraud? If it is , Who i Need to talk to , to recieve my tax return ? </p>
Thursday, 23 Mar 2017 9:11 PM
<p>This is a start, but there are many other reasons why you may have not received them yet.</p>
Thursday, 09 Feb 2017 10:38 AM
<p>Sometimes I find it very difficult to receive tax refund but hopefully these reasons will give me some insights.</p>
Monday, 06 Feb 2017 11:25 PM
<p>I filed my taxes April 18th. Sent them by efile and still have not received them. No errors no messages from the IRS. Now that 2016 tax season has started I can't even get an update from the irs website. Although last check said pending. What do i do? I called all the numbers and was hung up on everytime. </p>

<p>You may have to take legal action to retrieve your money. Consult a legal professional for the steps to take.</p>
Saturday, 19 Nov 2016 7:14 PM
<p>ive never recieved a tax refund in 7 years. was told my ex bosses accountant was taking it for himself, he is now deceased. what can i do?</p>
Friday, 21 Oct 2016 10:29 PM
<p>Well, min my case, it turns out I needed to verify my identity. Again. They said my return was literally thrown out because I took so long to do this, and now they're retrieving it from "garbage status". I got a letter in the mail like 8 months ago saying I needed to verify my identity online, which I tried to do, but when I answered all the security questions right, it simply said "We cannot verify your identity online". Period. No further instructions, no reason it didn't work, no nothing.</p><p>When I called, we went through the process again and it worked, but as I said, they threw my money away, and are now basically digging through the garbage to find it. This was a month ago. Now when I call, it still says "Your return is still being processed". I guess this "processing" of theirs is eternal. Like I said, I no longer believe that. Pretty sure I'm boned. Goodbye new tires for my car. &gt;:-(</p><p>This is their answer for trying to combat tax theft? Just don't pay anyone?</p>
Wednesday, 14 Sep 2016 1:50 AM
<p>family member filed taxes March 2016 here it is middle of September and every time they check they get BEING PROCESSED... 6 months and nothing</p>
Saturday, 03 Sep 2016 3:41 PM
<p>If the mail is so much safer, then where is my refund 5 months later? And other mail that's been lost over the past 3 years alone? It's not great for business, theirs or mine. </p>
Saturday, 03 Sep 2016 3:39 PM
<p>I did mine a little late in the game, but still on time, and I, too, do not have my taxes back. I couldn't e-file (no reason given, it was simply rejected), so I had to send it in the mail, which worried me. Months later and it seems I was right to be. For some reason, I can't even check the status of my return on the IRS site. It's not a huge chunk of money, so I keep putting it on my to-do list and then putting it off. Can't do that anymore, so I'm calling this week. There's a number for you to call on the IRS website under "Refund Help" and that's what I'm calling this week. Here's to hoping it's not hours of being on hold, stewing over how this should have been taken care of by now. :)</p>
Saturday, 03 Sep 2016 2:53 AM
<p>Same here been 6 months still says processing</p>
Saturday, 03 Sep 2016 2:52 AM
<p>eFiled end of February it's now September and I still don't have it.supposed to be direct deposit. Still says "processing" when I check online. No letter from IRS nothing! </p>

I still get the "still being processed". Contacted the IRS and they could not understand what is going on. What is the delay?</p>
Thursday, 28 Jul 2016 11:08 PM
<p>Heh, 5 months and no return. "Still being processed". -_-</p><p>I no longer believe that.</p><p>Called the 800 number with the extension and only got placed on hold for a really long time.

<p>You do realize that the IRS is understaffed and you filled your tax return during a time when their was a glitch in the system? I am still waiting on my tax refund and did not file a injuried spouse form. </p>
Wednesday, 29 Jun 2016 6:44 PM
<p>Hello, I filed my taxes in February I live in Arizona, I received a letter that I needed to verify my identity, I went to the office and verified it I was told there that I had to wait 9 weeks, it's been 7 months since I filed them, and 3 after the 9 weeks, I filled them with Liberty tax, I have called to the IRS and they always tell me they can't give me information at the moment to call back and I call back and get the same answer. Can someone tell me if they are in the same situation. Thank you, and have a wonderful day!</p>

<p>Hey I filed Jan 19 and I verified my identity late April I still haven't received my refund and it's almost July when I check where's my refund it still says processing what should I do? </p>
Friday, 17 Jun 2016 1:40 AM
<p>I'm in the same situation; It's been since 7 February of acceptance. We just bought a home and being able to play catch up with bills is a hassle. We've talked to the advocate but still nothing. Tired of waiting. We want our money!</p>
Tuesday, 14 Jun 2016 6:28 PM
<p>You should continue to attempt to reach someone at the IRS to discuss your case. In the meantime, you may consider freezing your credit reports and signing up for identity monitoring services.</p>

<p>How can I make sure the IRS has even received my tax paper? I mailed it through regular male. When I check my status through "where is my refund" on IRS website it doe snot give me any information, its like my information is not recorded. I don't know what should I do. Should I send them my tax paper again? Please help! I don't want my tax record to be incomplete.</p>

<p>Injuried spouse forms take about 12 to 16 weeks to make a final descion in reguards to a refund.</p>

<p>Hi! I am a former tax preparer in Arizona and what I can tell you is many states are experiencing slow disbursment times. I would reccomend you go down to your state office and speak to them about your state refund.</p>

<p>well what happened with me is this, with the "additional info" they needed, I missed sending them a copy of one thing. Someone at TurboTax said it shouldn't be a big deal, include a note explaining it, also they get one sent to them anyway from my insurance company.</p><p>But it was a big deal. Eventually after all this time, someone finally checked and told me that was why they could NOT (or would not) finish my taxes. I told her I now had a replacement copy of the missing thing.</p><p>She told me fax EVERYTHING again, including what was originally missing. So it was like starting again from "send additional info" letter but they worked quickly at it and I got my money back in like 2-3 weeks. </p>
Friday, 27 May 2016 2:08 AM
<p>Did you ever received your taxe refund after the 9th week I'm going through the same process I'm just so frustrated already</p>
Wednesday, 18 May 2016 4:55 PM
<p>my husband and I have done our state and federal taxes end of jan. we got our federal back around 14 business days just fine. we was to get our state (GA) taxes back by feb 20th 2016. here it is almost 3 months later and still no state refund when on the website to track it still says this. Your return has been received, and it is currently being processed. Please contact the Department at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711), option 3 to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am -5pm. we have tried many months and different times to call from 8-5 and always on hold. or get disconnected after holding 3 straight hours! what to do now?</p>
Monday, 16 May 2016 11:09 PM
<p>I mailed in my Mass state tax return in march of 2016, I received my federal back on April 24, 2016. But am waiting for my state refund. When called number it states they have no info on my return. I believe I sent it to a Boston PO BOX. I believe I should have mailed it to the Andover office. Should and can I resubmit my state tax return to Andover office? Please help I need my refund! !</p>
Thursday, 21 Apr 2016 10:37 AM
<p>After a while I got a letter from IRS said they needed additional info, April 26th will be 9 weeks since I've mailed them that. Have heard nothing, and calling them does no good, and I've only called about 3-4 times total. This is getting so ridiculous I am going to call them again in an hour or so.</p>
Wednesday, 23 Mar 2016 6:52 PM
<p>I filed my 2015 taxes on February 3 2016, but I had to file married joint return due to my husbands back child support I had to file injured spouse.. It's March 23 now.. How long should it be until I receive my return?</p>
Wednesday, 16 Mar 2016 7:27 PM
<p>My niece had a similar problem with her kids dad. He was suppose to give her money for her kids in 2013 and didn't give her the half he was suppose to after the divorce as he should have. She went to the IRS and told them he kept the money and she didn't want him to carry them anymore since she has them. When he filed the next year he could not get it and the money they paid him he has to pay back. She did get a check for it. Just let them know he has been filing and you have the children. He does not have the right to carry them and they will let you carry them and make him pay back. By the way, my nieces ex bought him a car.<br></p>
Monday, 07 Mar 2016 12:26 PM
<p>I have the same problem it's been more than 8 weeks already and I havnt received nothing yet and when I check the status of my refund it still says that is processing still .</p>

<p>Hi,Dan g here, we didn't file 2013 nor 2014 taxes, we are due a refund, this was from us being 'nice' to the bum biological father of our two grandchildren that reside with us. See, he has no right of claming these two, I told him to make it right with the IRS,as well as my wife and I, or I will send in these refund requests(which we did on December 27th, 2015. We received our 2013 and 2014 state refund checks, but haven't received our two federal refunds,,and it is now fed 14th 2016, anyone encounter a similar situation?</p>
Wednesday, 10 Feb 2016 9:17 PM
<p>I had 4 different jobs this year. First job I held for 5 months before I transferred to another one where I was fired for safety violation. The next one I got 2 months after that and the 4th job was a side job to the one I've now had 6 months. And yet somehow even after filing the taxes right and everything it is now 2 weeks after the fact and still no refund. And none of the above answers why its being heldup</p>
Tuesday, 26 Jan 2016 9:48 PM
<p>I've always done mine online and get the refund pretty quickly.</p>
Wednesday, 30 Dec 2015 1:34 AM
<p>I filed in feb and its the 29th of dec 2015</p>
Wednesday, 30 Dec 2015 1:32 AM
<p>Im in the same situation, but didnt recieve a letter. On cause of changing addresses. All year since i filed, and i would log on to the wheres my refund, its would say still being processed. Here recently the status bar appeared and said it was recieved. 21 days from wen it was recieved i should get my taxes. It has no error codes on paige </p>
Sunday, 27 Dec 2015 3:13 AM

Thursday, 06 Aug 2015 4:04 PM
<p>I filed my 2012 taxes in May of 2015 I was due a sizable refund will I still receive it?</p>
Wednesday, 29 Jul 2015 7:50 PM
<p>It has been 7 months and I still haven't got my refund . They state dirt2 weeks ago they t was being reviewed .they said I would have it in 7 to 10 days well that was not true , called again and they said by this past Friday . NO TAX CHECK YET . BEYOND FRUSTRATED . DOES ANY ONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO DO ?</p>
Monday, 27 Jul 2015 4:55 PM
<p>Did you ever receive your refund........</p>
Friday, 17 Jul 2015 7:24 PM
<p>I completely agree. I am going through the same thing but not a death in the family. (Sorry to hear that) I filed mine on January 29th and still nothing to this day. I am highly pissed off at the fact that they do take all this money from us and then take forever to get it back to us. If we owe them money they want it right away but if they owe us then they take millions of years to even consider looking at them. We the People need to do something about this and make it to where we as Americans don't have to deal with these corrupt people in the Government. I don't understand why we have to be put through this with these douche-fags. One of these days Americans will wake up and overthrow the Government which honestly needs to happen soon. Have a great day and I hope that everything gets better in the near future for you and your kiddos.</p>

<p>You may want to try researching a tax advocate service. Another commenter said they were able to get their refund in a matter of 10 days.

<p>Have you tried calling this number? 800-829-0582 ext 652 (to get rep). It seems to have worked for some of the commenters on this thread.</p>
Tuesday, 23 Jun 2015 3:44 PM
<p>i am</p>
Tuesday, 23 Jun 2015 3:42 PM
<p>i files 2/6 and it is now 6/23 and i cannot get a live person to talk to</p>
Friday, 05 Jun 2015 9:09 PM
<p>I filed in mid March and have not received anything. I called and was told that it would take 6-8 weeks from April 2nd because of a system error. It has now been over 8 weeks and still nothing. Currently on hold to try to get an answer. Is there a way to file a complaint or claim? </p>
Wednesday, 27 May 2015 2:18 PM
<p>I filed my taxes Jan 30 and they were accepted the 31st its been nearly 5 months and I have yet to receive a time frame on when I'm going to receive it. IRS keeps running me around in circles telling me there will be a refund date soon and there never is. </p>
Saturday, 23 May 2015 6:08 PM
<p>It has been a month since we went to the tax place. It cost 100.00 to do my taxes. And they wanted the money then.</p>
Thursday, 14 May 2015 11:42 PM
<p>The IRS website indicates that my refund check was mailed 5/1/15; it is now 5/14/15 and it has it not been received. Should I be worried?</p>
Friday, 08 May 2015 1:07 PM
<p>I filed mine at the end of January and still haven't received my refund. The IRS site says it's still being "processed." I assume Obamacare screwed it up.</p>
Thursday, 07 May 2015 11:22 PM
<p>I filed February 2nd, was accepted by IRS the same day. It is now May 7th and it is still processing. We have gotten no letters, no calls, and no answers. We attempted to get a tax advocate, but they will not accept us because we are not deemed in need of the money. If you do not have an eviction letter or utility disconnect letter, an advocate will not help you.</p>
Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:54 PM
<p>how do i go about doing that please help</p>
Tuesday, 05 May 2015 10:33 AM
<p>I still havent gotten my tax refund from 2013 what do i do!!</p>
Monday, 04 May 2015 2:12 PM
<p>It's great that you found someone who worked with you to get your refund. How difficult was it to get in contact with your tax advocate?</p>
Thursday, 30 Apr 2015 4:18 PM
<p>you need to contact a tax advocate. I did, and 4 weeks later, it is finally being processed again. I know that without the advocate, it would have taken about 4 months.</p>
Thursday, 30 Apr 2015 11:59 AM
<p>look I filed on t<br>he 8th of feb 2015 my husband passed 3 1/2 months before I filed I sent them everything and more that they needed here it is almost may and still no tax return they claim they sent me a letter so I called and then they claimed they sent another one and still no letter and no return what do I do they want me to verify who I am but when I go on the website guess what they are trying to say my information is wrong I know who I am and I know all my info so really I want to know why I have not received my taxes this is b.s I need that money they had no problem taking it away now they don't want to give it back because my husband is dead look me and my kids have been through enough I have now lost my house and my car because I needed the extra money to help out with bills now that he is gone I have been a house wife forever and have two babys under the age 3 this is just a crime and we need to do something about this I pay my taxes I pay for my own health care I lost my husband and now they want to punish me wtf</p>
Monday, 27 Apr 2015 2:59 PM
<p>Did you use the Where's My Refund tool on the IRS website to confirm that it's still being processed? If you're supposed to get a check mailed to you, it should say on the IRS site when it was mailed.<br><a href="https://disq.us/url?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsa.www4.irs.gov%2Firfof%2Flang%2Fen%2Firfofgetstatus.jsp%3A7EKHvyQWbRXlr3jzalXaswwBMHY&amp;cuid=15643" rel="nofollow noopener" title="https://sa.www4.irs.gov/irfof/lang/en/irfofgetstatus.jsp">https://sa.www4.irs.gov/irf...</a></p>

I cannot get a hold of a human being to speak with about this, also I have not received any papers in the mail from the irs saying anything. Please someone out there do you possibly have a reason or an answer as to why this is happening. Thank you</p>

<p>Is anybody still having this issue??????????</p>
Monday, 06 Apr 2015 10:00 PM
<p>Hi Ray, there could be a number of reasons your refund is delayed. My biggest guess is that there was some kind of mistake that is delaying your refund. Here's more info that might be helpful: <a href="https://disq.us/url?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mybanktracker.com%2Fnews%2Fmore-reasons-youre-waiting-for-your-tax-refund%3Anup7yu_S_ZD77B8uI9p7q8gBDrU&amp;cuid=15643" rel="nofollow noopener" title="https://www.mybanktracker.com/news/more-reasons-youre-waiting-for-your-tax-refund">https://www.mybanktracker.c...</a></p><p>It sounds painful, but I would try calling the IRS to see what happened.</p>
Monday, 06 Apr 2015 9:36 PM
<p>Beefreetwo - I'm bumping this up to the top for you, not sure if you saw it from another commenter. <br>Call 8008290582 ext 652 to get rep</p><p>I've had to call the IRS several times last tax season, and I think my record time for a hold was 47 minutes. Unfortunately, you just have to wait. Have all of your questions written down ahead of time so you don't forget anything. Good luck.</p>

<p>YES! Ugh! It's being offset because of my exhusband. I filed an innocent spouse form and hopefully that will fix it. </p>

Tuesday, 31 Mar 2015 3:29 PM
<p>whatdo i do when my income tax was sent back to irs</p>
Monday, 30 Mar 2015 1:29 PM
<p>Hi Sherry, while it does take a while to get anyone on the phone at the IRS, it IS possible to get through, it will just take a while. Also, I would try sending a letter via snail mail to the IRS with some proof, information, documentation that you were scammed in 2013. Keep a copy for yourself.</p>
Sunday, 29 Mar 2015 6:35 PM
<p>I was a victim of refund fraud in 2013. I have waited and waited on my refund check. I have recieved my refund for 2014 but nothing for the year of 2013. With it being that long it now doesn't show up on the " Wheres My refund". You cant get anyone on the phone! Any suggestions although I know Im certainly not the only one?</p>
Saturday, 28 Mar 2015 12:53 AM
<p>Did you call that same number that "Babe" wrote?</p>
Friday, 27 Mar 2015 11:33 PM
<p>I e-filed mine the same day. When I check status it says we cannot provide you with information about your refund. When I try to call they say they can't accept my call to try back later or the next business. This is so ridiculous.</p>
Friday, 27 Mar 2015 11:29 PM
<p>I filled 2 months ago as well... What letter are you talking about? Everytime I try to call them it says they can't take my call to try again later or on the next business day. This is so ridiculous.</p>
Friday, 27 Mar 2015 9:22 PM
<p>Hi all, I did my taxes on 1/9/15 and still have not received anything. Tomorrow will make 2 months with no information based on the letter that was sent to me. I finally got a hold of a representative, and they told me they cannot seek any additional information until it has reached the 60 day mark from what my letter says. I think that's ridiculous!!!! Now I am gonna have to call again on Monday to let them know that it has finally reached the 60 day mark, now what ?</p>
Thursday, 26 Mar 2015 4:44 PM
<p>It turns out someone fraudulently added me on their taxes for 2013 and in an effort to protect my taxes this year they held on to them. That part was released on the 23rd of this month (3 days shy of 8 weeks after filing). Now I have to wait 6-9 MORE weeks. The person I spoke to wouldn't tell me who put me on their taxes because of privacy rights. WTH? I wasn't even made aware that someone tried to add me on their taxes. Is there a law against this? I want to know who tried to claim me.<br> Now my IRS app is saying "We have received your tax return and it is being processed"</p>
Thursday, 26 Mar 2015 3:50 PM
<p>I filed mine on 2-13-15 got my state but haven't gotten my federal it's been over a month. Wtfs up</p>

<p>I thought the exact same thing! They really have us by the cajones! I found a phone number a few weeks ago but it said not to call unless it's been 12 weeks. :/ I have the app and check so often that it forbade me from using it! Still being processed...</p>
Wednesday, 18 Mar 2015 3:55 AM
<p>I E-filed my return since February 4th and the only update that i am getting is that, it is being processed. I tried calling the IRS at numerous numbers, and the only automated response that i am getting is that, it is being processed. I wish that they will either answer the phone or if something is delaying the refund, then atleast call you or send a letter notifying you of the situation. The irs charge you interest whenever you owe them money and pay them late. I really think that their should be a law that requires them to pay you interest on your money whenever that they pay you late....That's would be a great way to keep checks and balances within the government.</p>
Wednesday, 18 Mar 2015 2:22 AM
<p>Can you please tell me how you reached them? All I got is the automated number which tells me the same thing as the website.</p>
Wednesday, 18 Mar 2015 2:20 AM
<p>I filed my taxes immediately upon receiving my w4, in late January. Its now almost two month later. not only have I not received my refund, which I really need, I'm getting nothing but a message saying its still processing. I wouldn't be too concerned if they didn't say I would get in within three weeks.Also, none of the reasons for a delay apply to me. Two years ago, they gave my refund to someone else, so I was a victim of ID Theft. As a result, I need to enter a pin. Its still held up for some reason.</p>
Wednesday, 18 Mar 2015 1:10 AM
<p>and I cant get in touch with anyone to find out what the delay is, its frustrating</p>
Wednesday, 18 Mar 2015 1:09 AM
<p>yeah I did mine on 2/4 and haven't received mine either.. other ppl that did their 2 weeks ago have already gotten theirs back</p>
Tuesday, 17 Mar 2015 5:02 PM
<p>I filed april 31st and haven't received any thing and I'm supposed to be getting a check in the mail</p>
Monday, 16 Mar 2015 7:49 AM
<p>I filed 1/28/15 and having the same issue. I had alimony, child support, a education credit, child credit and some other misc write offs. I was wondering if maybe all that needed to be verified and that's why it was taking so long. </p>
Thursday, 12 Mar 2015 7:24 AM
<p>I filed January 26th, 2015 and I still have not received my refund. Every time I look at the IRS website to try to fin my refund, the website tells me that it is being processed. What could be going on to prolong my refund?</p>

<p>I'm having the same exact problem and filed the same month of 2014. This is beyond ridiculous and in order To get a human to talk to you have to crack of code it's insane. I get no answers or reason why from anyone and I'm so pissed and lost of what to do. I just filed for this 14 and wonder if I'll ever get that as well. </p>

<p>You can go to the IRS website to track the status of your refund. Have you also tried checking with your accountant (if you used one)?</p>

<p>Glad I am not the only either... I filed in March, forgot to sign and then I got the papers back, signed them and sent them back right away. It has been now 4 months and nothing. When I check on the website it says it is still being processed.</p>

<p>I am having the same issue too, I filed in March, and still have not received it yet. Funny thing is I filed my refund on the same day with my brother and he received it after 3 weeks, and I still have not receive mine. :(</p>

<p>Also I have checked on the web page <a href="http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.irs.gov%2FRefunds%3AcQS2Hz7cFth8JEr5GxGUFryx7h4&amp;cuid=15643" rel="nofollow noopener" title="http://www.irs.gov/Refunds">http://www.irs.gov/Refunds</a>, It still states "Your tax refund is still being processed, a refund date will be provided when available."</p>

<p>I filed at the end of January 2014 and claimed by niece and nephews. Received a letter in the middle of February asking me to verify that they are who I say they are, and I can claim them, which I sent everything in they asked for. Received another letter in March saying that I should receive the money around the middle of May if approved. The middle of May came and nothing. Finally got a hold of someone at the IRS they told me that they will make there decision by the end of June and I should be receiving a letter in the mail within a week informing me of this. I don't understand I have been claiming my niece and nephews for 3 years. I support these children nobody else. I have never had this problem before, Why can't they just look at 2010, 2011 and 2012 tax return and they can see for themselves, they I have been claiming them.</p>

<p>I filed in January and still haven't got it. I got ahold of the irs two weeks ago finally and they said it's because I needed to verify my identity, so I did and I keep checking and it still says processing. <br></p>

<p>I have the app on my phone and it keeps saying still processing. I have tried every number but only a computer talks to me. I revised my state on the 26 of April so i don't understand why it might be taking this long</p>

<p>Since refunds can be delayed for a number of reasons, the best way to check the status of your refund is by using the "Where's My Refund" tool : <a href="http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.irs.gov%2FRefunds%3AcQS2Hz7cFth8JEr5GxGUFryx7h4&amp;cuid=15643" rel="nofollow noopener" title="http://www.irs.gov/Refunds">http://www.irs.gov/Refunds</a></p><p>Statuses are updated every 24 hours. Once you have checked Where's my Refund (and since it has been over 21 days since you filed), you will be given instruction on how to contact the IRS. <a href="http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.irs.gov%2Fuac%2FHow-to-Contact-the-IRS-1%3ALM0Wxe0NTezDR5HoXw62w_M-T-w&amp;cuid=15643" rel="nofollow noopener" title="http://www.irs.gov/uac/How-to-Contact-the-IRS-1">http://www.irs.gov/uac/How-...</a></p>

<p>I did my taxes in 2/24/14 and have not gotten anything why?</p>
Friday, 14 Mar 2014 12:58 PM
<p>its been over a month since I filed my taxes why have I not received them??</p>

<p>You forgot one. As a tax preparer, every year I hear from clients asking where their refund is, many of whom are forgetting a simple fact--they haven't filed yet.</p>
