IRS Where’s My Refund Reference Codes

WMR Error and Reference CodesOne of the biggest questions I’ve been seeing this year are what the various reference codes mean on the IRS Where’s My Refund Tool.  A lot of tax filers are getting IRS Reference Codes back, but don’t know what they mean and don’t know if they are in trouble.

For more information on WMR, check out When To Expect My Tax Refund.

However, finding the IRS reference codes has also been one of the hardest things to track down this year, especially with all the changes to the way the IRS is processing refunds.

Anyway, here are the IRS Where’s My Refund Tool Reference codes.  You read this chart by first looking for your code, then seeing what the error is.  Each error has a specific set of steps that the IRS will follow, called Inquiry Response Procedure.  Here is the list of what the IRM Codes mean.

Also, if you’re concerned about a generic message that says “Refer to Tax Topic 152″, all that means is check out these tips about getting your refund. Here is a link to Tax Topic 152.

If You Get a Reference Code on Your WMR

If you check Where’s My Refund (WMR) and see you have a reference code, you should identify the code and see if any action is required.

In many cases, no action is required on your part.  One of the most common codes is 9001, which, as you can see, just means you accessed WMR using a different SSN or TIN.  Once the IRS analyzes to ensure no fraud has taken place, you will get your return like normal.

If there is an issue, the IRS will typically send you a letter to your mailing address within 90 days stating what the issue was, and any additional information required.

If you have any questions, you can call the IRS directly at 800-829-1040.

    Robert, since tax ID theft and fraud is becoming rampant, would you know which code you’d get back if someone–a crook–had already filed a return using your name and SSN in order to fraudulently collect a refund?

    • says

      I actually think the second return would not process, and WMR would say to call the IRS or a letter is being sent.

      If there is a code, I would think it would be a generic 1121 reference code.

      • Christie haynes says

        Hey Robert I filled January 31 was accepted February 2 it still saying being processed refund date will be given when available it did have topic 152 under the bottom but it disappeared to so does that mean it’s something wrong with my return

          • Christie haynes says

            Hey ROBERT I FINALLY GOT SOME ONE ON THE PHONE ABOUT MY REFUND HE TOLD ME THAT THEY SENT ME A LETTER SOMETHING TO DO WITH IDENTITY AND HE TOLD ME TO RESPOND BACK TO THE LETTER AND THEY WILL FINISH THE PROCESS OF MY TAX RETURN SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT MY RETURN

          • says

            Yes I would be worried about identity theft. You will have to fill out the form and verify your identity, which will add 4 weeks or so to your refund. You’ll get it eventually though.

      • birdntrin says

        Hi robert farrington on wheres my refund i had all three bars and a deposit date of February 19 and irs sent refund but i checked again saturday morning about 7am it was still saying refund sent but at 1130am it was saying delayed and reference code 1121.but i called this morning and they said no record of a letter being sent out so what does that means

      • ashley says

        My refund was recieved accepted and sent out on feb 25.The status also said If I dont recieve my refund by March 2 contact my bank.2 days later after it was sent out the status said “There is a delay in processing your tax return and your expected refund date may have changed.

        If you have questions or need additional information, please have the following on hand when you call:
        A copy of this page.
        A copy of your tax return.
        The Social Security Number, Filing Status, and refund amount claimed on your return.
        Any notice that you have received concerning your refund.
        Please mention reference number 1121 to the IRS Customer Service Representative.
        WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? BECAUSE MY REFUND WAS SENT AT FIRST?UGH

        • says

          It means that there was a problem depositing your refund for whatever reason (maybe name, routing number, etc) and now you’ll have to verify your identity and your bank info to get your refund.

    • Stephanie Boone says

      I received a letter in the mail to have a 1095 faxed in for the market place ins how long does it take for them to process my refund after receiving my fax?

    • Cat says

      I received a code 1441 and called to see what needed to be done and if I would need to send in documentation as this could men a typo with ssn or name however the representative verified all my information nd it was correct. I don’t know if this means that there is something wrong with my refund. Why would it give me this code if all the info was correct? How long should it take to clear if there is nothing wrong?

  2. says

    Wmr is not displaying bars and I don’t have any codes or messages displayed either.Just yesterday I was on accepted, when I checked today no bars & it just reads your return is still being processed. Is this an indication that I’m in some sort of trouble or audit?

  3. Ms Perez says

    My taxes were filed and accepted on the 21st and I still haven’t received my refund. People that have filed before and after me have already received them. I’m checking my status on WMR and it’s still on the first bar (that they received my refund and are processing it). Is there any reason as to why mine is taking so long? Should I be worried? This is the first time this has happened to me :(

  4. Paul says

    I owe about 1400$ in back child support. My return was for over 6,000$. I filed HOH, and was already expecting an offset. I’ve read too much, everywhere, with people saying they would only take the OFFSET owed, and then mail check/DD as originally indicated in my return. I’ve also read my entire refund could be taken to satisfy the debt owed, and then either the State, or BFS would issue a check for any difference…which could take up to 6 months.

    WMR shows ”
    Your tax refund is scheduled to be sent to your bank by February 4, 2015.
    If your refund is not credited to your account by February 9, 2015, check with your bank to see if it has been received”

    Followed by Tax topic 203 talking about the OFFSET program and back child support. Its currently showing 2 bars on WMR.

    My question is this: Based on WMR, does that mean i can expect my refund for DD on/around 2/4/15, for the adjusted amount after the offset? Or does it just mean that IRS agrees with my return and the amount, but because of the Offset, i’m supposed to remain patient

    (ps, i AM NOT a dead beat parent. I agree with the amount owed.)

    Thanks!

  5. Angie says

    I filed my taxes on January 21 and it was received on the 22 its going on 2weeks and the bar on wmr is still on accepted. Does the IRS have to issue out your refund after 21 days or how does that go if there are no discrepancies in my form? Or do I just need to be patient and wait it out. Never had to wait this long

  6. Jamie says

    My tax return now says still being processed. It’s a basic return, so I’m unsure why there would be any processing delays. If there was some sort of an issue with the return would that be indicated? Is it normal so say still being processed?

      • says

        Yes, I have been having the same problem. The only difference is mines was saying return received then bars disappeared and said your return is still being process. A date will be provided. But it will be three weeks Monday and mystatusstill thesame. Is this a bad thing and should I be worried?

  7. lakisha brown says

  8. Hershey says

  9. says

    My irs status keeps saying you may entered wrong information please try try again later…. what does this mean? I am putting all information. I Was accepted on 1/31/15

  10. Yaencey says

    I know I have an offset, but when I checked my tax account trascript it showed I had a code of 766 (Credit to your account) with at -$1000 and another code 846 (Refund issued) $2006 does this mean I may possibly get a portion of my refund?

  11. Reagan says

    I was actually approved on the 26th with a direct deposit for 1/30. On the 30th i checked wmr to see if it was sent and got a message stating “take action…mention ref code 1121″ I called the irs and remained on hold for more than 60 minutes only to have the representative hang up on me! I am completely lost as to what this means…can you PLEASE help???

  12. cinda says

    my refund was accepted on the 21st and it showed processing for about 2 days…then it said call this 800 # and give reference code 9001…one of the ladies there said she seen no problem, but another one said it ‘may possibly’ be identity theft but she wasnt sure…it has been saying that same info on wmr for about 4 days now….. what am i suppose to believe???

    • Shelly says

      I have the same problem and I confirmed everything with the IRs agent over 1 week ago, It can take up to 60 days to get a Refund if they approve it, they can deny the complete refund if they want that is what the letter said on it when I received it….

  13. Jill says

    Filed january 16. Was accepted january 20th. Checked wmr for a whole week . Onto the second week reference code 9001 please contact irs extension 362. This is the firat year my husband I filed married joint. We found out we got flagged to make sure it wasnt fraud. We went to irs building in our hometown. She updated the system that in fact it was not a fradulent return. Should we still get our money on time? Or is it going to prolong it? We talked to anfew different repa and one said ot could be end of march! I hope not

  14. BarbB says

    Filed and accepted on the 27th, on WMR had 1 bar, now it says your refund is being processed and a refunda date will be provided when available. With a tax topic of 152. What does that mean?

  15. ken says

    Hi it’s been 72 hours since I e file my tax return and then when I check it out keep saying that my information is not correct , even though I put the right information. .

  16. Krista says

    Hi! I filed MFJ with my husband on Jan 15th. It was accepted sometime after that and then approved on 1/22. I had an expected refund date of 1/30 but it said to wait until 2/4 before calling the IRS. I had chosen to have my return direct deposited, but unfortunately I didn’t realize the bank would reject the refund because my name is the only name on the account. On 2/4 I called the IRS and they said that the bank rejected my return and that it could take 10 weeks to receive my paper check, and not to call back until the 10 weeks are over. Do any of you have experience with this? Is it really going to take 10 weeks?

    • says

      No, it should be shorter than 10 weeks, but you’re going to likely wait 2-3 weeks. You see, your return now went into a special processing department who will create a paper check payment, then they send it to the Treasury department to actually create your check, then you wait for the post office to deliver it. It just takes a lot more time.

  17. greg ramos says

    Its been almost a week that filed my taxes and when I check wmr it says that they cannot provide any info about my return . Anyone can help me out?

  18. Liz says

    My refund says “refund still processing, a refund date will be available”, but there’s no code after that. What does that mean for my return? There are no instructions to call or anything and I cannot get my transcripts online or even by mail.

  19. Aimee says

    Hi..i woke up to a take action message that there would be a delay in processing my return with a reference number 1541. if I had any questions to call. What is reference 1541?

    • says

      Its because you have an offset on your taxes for some reason. Here are the most common reasons:

      1. Back taxes owed from federal or state
      2. Back due child support
      3. Government student loans
      4. Failure to file any prior years tax return
      5. Incorrect earned income credit
      6. Adding a dependent that someone else claimed in prior years
      7. Over payment of unemployment compensation

  20. victoria says

    OK so I filed around the 22nd was accepted quickly like 24th went through all the steps and said sent to bank.. Well I entered wrong account number so it was rejected.. Wmr updated to say check being mailed by the 11th of Feb but now its just a generic message about being processed.. Why? I am so confused how can it go from approved to being processed again.. It does not give any codes or anything… I know I will have to wait a little longer but I don’t understasmd why all my bars disapeared .. My transcripts show the actions of the refund being returned and it shows refund sent with a 2\23 date.. So if it was stated over by IRS I would not have transcripts correct..

  21. Olivia Lally says

    I claimed my niece and two nephews this year. Their father is unfortunately in prison and my sister was in a halfway house at the beginning of the year and then had to finish complying with other court proceedings. I lived with my sister and her 3 children and supported them .my sister didn’t work.
    I was given code 151 but on tt shpws a deposit date of the 16th? but have received 1940 out of my taexs. that’s what was taken from my check.
    I’m 19 but can provide proff i supported them. Their father is in prison and he was the sole provider

  22. T Mac says

    OK, I filed through Turbo Tax last Saturday (Jan. 31st) because I was waiting for my 1098-T from school. This past Saturday morning I woke up to find the following:

    Take Action.

    We have received your tax return and it is being reviewed. You will receive a notice from us requesting additional information within 30 calendar days. You may not receive all or part of your refund until we receive and review the information we requested. If you need more information after you receive our notice, call the number on the notice.
    Please do not contact us until you have received the notice as we are unable to take any action until then.

    Please read the following information related to your tax situation:
    • Tax Topic 151, Your Appeal Rights

    OK, I readily admit a few things. Since I have been unemployed the past 4 years, I have not had to file taxes. I owe about $2400 to the IRS from previous filing. I also owe about $600 in arrears for child support. I expected those to be taken from my refund and the rest be sent to my bank. This is what has happened in previous years when I was an active filer. I claimed my niece and nephew because my sister pretty much abandoned them and i had them all year.

    Is there any chance they will send the difference or is it %100 fact that I will have to no doubt wait 2 weeks to receive this letter before anything can be done.

    I’m a little disturbed because I went and rented a house and planned on furnishing it with part of the refund and get the utilities connected. Please advise

  23. katherine sanchez says

    I did my taxes January 22, om WMR said processed , and approved by January 25 with date of direct deposit on february , 4 .when I checked it has an alert take action reference number 1121. Why ?

  24. dee says

    I filed on 2/2,got accepted ,got a dd of feb 10,checked again got ref number 1121..called irs ,it was a waste of 20 mins..what does ref number 1121 means?

  25. Tori Ann says

    Like many people here, i too filed and was accepted on 1/20/2015, & days later i received the error code 9001. I filed Qualified Widower with dependent children. The only SSN listed is mine. I have not received a DDD and it has been a few weeks. What should i do?

  26. Payton says

    i filed my taxes 1-29 and wmr is still at one bar but i was able to get my transcript online with code 20150602 when should i get mine deposited?

  27. Anita says

    HI Robert, I have code 9001 as many others I just wanted to know how long does it take for the irs to clear this code also could it be possible to turn into another code? Is 9001 a general code?

  28. Jessie says

    What does cycle code 20150602 mean on my account transcript? I’ve been told that it means a direct deposit date of Feb. 13 (apparently 2015 is the year, 06 is the sixth week of the year, and 02 is the second day of the week since the irs weeks start on Thursdays). Is this correct? I did get code 846 for deposit being approved.

  29. Tiffany says

    Hello,

    I was accepted on Jan 12 (decided to file early this year) its been over 21 days, No refund So I contacted IRS this morning, they told me I was marked for identity fraud. I’ve never had this problem. What does this mean? The rep didn’t sound too sure either. He wasn’t helpful at all. On WMR it kept showing “Still processing” with no codes. I was to expect my refund Feb. 10th. Please help on what is happening. Seems like alot or early filers are being told this as well.

    • says

      Well, the IRS didn’t even start accepting returns until January 20, so just because you filed early and were accepted, your return just sat in a queue waiting to be processed. And even then, only 90% of people get their returns in 21 days.

  30. todd lewis says

    I got my transcripts and it has code 570 further account action pending then 971 notice issued not sure what it means I called irs they said they can’t give me any info till its past 21 days or I receive a letter

    • says

      An IRS 971 Notice means that your spouse has filed for Innocent Spouse Relief or Separation Relief. Basically your spouse or former spouse asked the IRS for help and claimed something was wrong with your return or past returns. The IRS is now reviewing everything and will contact you.

  31. Debbie smith says

    I’m getting code 9001 no information can be given about your return until four weeks
    If you call please mention code 9001 and tax topic 152 is this a problem. What it means what should I do

  32. Angel says

    Hi, I filed my taxes early this year was excepted on the 12th just last week my bars disappeared and was not able to check my transcripts till and till last night and these are the codes listed and cycle:
    20150602 and my codes say 150, 806, 766, 768, and last is 570 I haven’t
    received any notices or letters and nothing has changed since last year as well except for the 766 I didn’t have on my return last year. Can you tell me what or why it could be taking so long ?
    Thanks

      • Angel says

        Hi, thanks for the response, but could you explain what you mean by a liability? Or give some sort of example of what liabilities could be holding it up? Also is it unusual to have that code with no notice sent out ?
        Thanks again,

        • says

          It could be anything. Chances are a noticed has been sent, but it will take 2-4 weeks. Most common ones this year are ACA penalties not claimed, offsets (like for backed taxes, student loans, unemployment), or even a spouse claim.

  33. william says

    Hey I filed 2 weeks ago almost. Still says we have received your tax refund and it’s being processed… why so long … is it normal?

  34. latanya says

    I was approved yesterday 02/11/15 but when I checked back its telling me I have a delay tax topic 1121 what does this mean my refund date is 02/13/15

  35. Melanie says

    i received a 4464c letter dated 1/27 said nothing needed on my transcript it only has a 570 code… Wmr s showing the 21 days it’s said they received it 1/22…

    • says

      It means that they are reviewing your return manually. Read your letter. It tells you what may have been the problem.

      For example:
      Your return was selected because we are reviewing one or more of the following:
      – Income you reported on your return
      – Income tax withholding amounts you reported on your return
      – Claims for tax credits you made on your return
      – Business income you reported on your return

      It also usually says what you need to do or don’t need to do:
      You are not required to do anything at this time. If you have not received your refund or been contacted by us within 60 days from the date of this letter, you may call us at the number provided above.

  36. K.Dozier says

    I filed and was accepted Feb 6th when should I start checking the IRS website? Also when ordering transcripts what does (information does not match records) mean?

  37. Shekela says

    On where’s my refund its says my money was deposited into my account when I checked my transcript it have code 841 which means refund canceled what is goin on ?

  38. Dez Townsend says

    I filed 2/7. Had one bar up until now. Says a 9001 code. Well I know that I filed my brother daughter and my own taxes using one computer and check our money back on the same computer Not sure if that makes a difference.

    Am I ok? They both are set for DD for there money. Am I going to get a DD too?

    • says

      All that means is that you accessed your tax return using WMR with the secondary SSN on the tax return (maybe a spouse)? Nothing is wrong. Just wait it out and everything will be processed like normal.

      • chris says

        I got the same message. So there’s no need to call really then? Just gotta wait longer?I think this 9001 issue is more than entering the wrong ssn. Look how many people are having this problem. What are the odds it’s from that really. I only have myself on mine and getting the 9001 code

          • anonymous says

            I filled January 20 th 2015 and 3 weeks later I got code 1242 I sent in requested information I claimed my sister I think that’s the reason I got audited I have never been before my question is I sent in it but how do I take my sister off cause I couldn’t prove I took care of her please help

  39. jeff williams says

    Wmr has no info on my return. It was filed 5 days ago by my tax preparer. I called him and he stated everything shows goOd. Why is it not showing anything? Only the generic 152 code.

  40. fran says

    Christie mine is saying the samething as of this morning. At first i had a bar now it says that. Have you figured out anything yet?

  41. Melissa says

    My transcripts updated in Thursday with codes
    806, 971, 570, 571 and 846.
    WMR updated today with 2 bars and Reference Code 9021.
    I understand it’s a math error but are they still sending the difference??

  42. Lily says

    Hello I had returned received and now it’s giving me reference number 9001 and it’s telling me to call a number, so I googled it and some people say that you just call the number provided to verify your identity. Is this correct?

  43. Confused says

    Used Turbotax. Filed E-filing for direct deposit on jan 30 accepted February 1. WMR and irs2go but generic no bars. Just says still processing. No codes. this is a simple Single EZ form. No debts. No pending problems. Everyone I know that has filed in February have gotten their direct deposit already even before the date that was given to them. Should I be worried that mine is lost? I couldn’t get my transcripts. I couldn’t get pass entering my address information which I entered it exactly like it was filed. Should I call the IRS? I’ve never ever had this problem and having been using turbotax for years. Please advise.

      • Ricardo Perry says

        My return was accepted on Jan . 30th it is now the 15th of February I know it hasn’t been 21 days yet but its cutting closer too time, when I checked WMR it gave me tax topic 152 & reference code 9001. I’ver been nervous for the past week because I’m used to getting it back sooner. Was there a delay or are retunrs typically being deposited around the 21 day mark this year???

  44. vicky says

    The code 1121 u say means there is a problem on my tax return….what kind og problem could it b….because i got approve and then the irs say they sent my refund to mt bank..but its not there…and now when i check wheres my refund…i get code 1121

      • Mimi says

        What if you checked the return and the account numbers are correct as well as verifying with tax advisor. It was approved to be DD on 02/11/15 (no later than 02/16/2015) and notice showed on 02/15/2015 code 1121. I will admit, tried getting my transcript for 2014 and locked myself attempted to get it, due to failing one of the security question asked on 02/14. I received a number to call with a specific extension; my name is on the bank account. IRS has direct deposited to that account in the past.

  45. Andrew says

    Filed on 1/19. Originally stated refund should be direct on 2/10 but now its being processed with no reference code.

  46. Stephanie says

    I had code 1242 received the paperwork in mail, sent all documents in (faxed). Do you know how long it typically takes for them to get my taxes back to me or a response? Also will WMR website update the new info? I appreciate it, you’re very helpful!

  47. khaneesha says

    I filed on 1/31 it said being processed now I can’t access wmr at all I get a error code 9001 I called the IRS had to verify my identity I did they said I’m fine now I should be able to access wmr but I’m still getting the same error code what’s going on

  48. Paul & Margaret says

    I got a refund date for 02/13/2015
    I checked WMR on the 13th the wmr site said Take Action
    there is a delay in your refund and my transcripts says some codes then after 846 it says 841 refund canelcancelled. Also there is a reference number 1121 on the wmr…. help pls.

    • says

      It means there was a problem with your refund. Chances are there was a typo on your bank account, routing number, or name on the bank account. You’ll likely have to wait for a paper check now.

  49. Beverly Williams says

    Hello Robert.

    I filed my tax return on February 4, 2015 & as of today February 17 still no approved status. It’s only on the first orange bar & it’s saying we have received you return && it’s being processed. Also says please refer to your tax topix 152. I have no idea what’s going on, it was just a simple w2 & claimed my 2 girls. Should I be worried about it or give it more time?

  50. reese says

    Efiled through hrb Feb 7. Was excepted the same day still says processing. It never took this long before. Should I be worried?

  51. Adelaida Oconner says

    I filled my taxes on January 20th , on where is my refund it said that my refund was sent and deposit to the bank account on February 11th and when I called Jackson Hewitt to see if it was deposit to their account they say no , and now today I get a code 1121

    • says

      IRS 1541 means you have an offset on your taxes for some reason. Here are the most common reasons:

      1. Back taxes owed from federal or state
      2. Back due child support
      3. Government student loans
      4. Failure to file any prior years tax return
      5. Incorrect earned income credit
      6. Adding a dependent that someone else claimed in prior years
      7. Over payment of unemployment compensation

  52. mike says

    I code a ref code 1242 they told me I just need to send proof that my child stayed with me thru 2014 told me I could get a letter from the church or anything and it doesn’t have to be notarized

  53. brandy says

    Hi my wmr said refund approved and dd on 2-19 but have tax topic 203 does this mean they are keeping all of my refund? I’m on disability and they sent a letter saying an offset will begin 3-7-15 from my disability checks student loans have been sent to a collection agency so are they taking my refund

  54. Andrea says

    Hi! I filed at the same preparer I have for years on January 22, 2015. I claimed the same children (my own) whom no-one else has ever claimed since I’ve claimed them all their lives. I work at the same job and make decent money. The only difference between this return and last year’s is my address. When I wasn’t accepted by the 21 days, I called the IRS and was informed that they are in the process of reviewing my return due to it being flagged for potential identity theft signs. About 4 years ago I had my purse stolen and I filed an identity theft claim because someone was writing checks in my name. The IRS said that could be why I was flagged. What I want to know is, will it really take them 10 weeks to up to a year to finish processing my return and issue my refund, even though they informed me that they need nothing from me as of now. I work for the government at the USPS and I have always claimed everything exactly the same. Why take so long if they don’t even need me to prove my identity? And is it possible to speed it up somehow. I’m like everyone else and in desperate need of this money. I have 5 children and was on unpaid maternity leave without pay for 14 weeks and I’m extremely behind on important bills. Is there some service or something that could help me immediately provide proof of my identity to speed my refund issuance up some or should I just sit back and hope to expect it sooner than the timeline they provided? Please help improve this state of mind the IRS have put me in by giving me some semblance of hope…

    • says

      If your return is subjected to review, it typically does add 8 weeks or more to the process. Furthermore, if you have identity theft issues, it can take as long as 6 months and some paperwork to sort it out. You will get your return in the end, but you’re going to have to wait a bit longer than normal.

      • Andrea says

        Thank you. I figured as much. Just wondered if maybe they were giving me the general timeframe and there was a chance I’d get it earlier, however, I honestly doubt it considering the things that I’ve read. I guess as inconvenient as it is for me, it is a relief to know that they are doing their job by holding it until they manually review and come to the conclusion it is not someone other than myself trying to steal. Good to know considering the widespread use of computers for identity theft, and I’d prefer to limit my vulnerability and not be a victim. Is there not a pin or something that I can apply for, for future tax returns, to verify my identity? Or do they not do that anymore?

  55. Tiana M says

    Hello Robert,

    This is my first year filing taxes and I filed on Feb 3rd got accepted by state and federal same day and my 21 days will be up on the 24th when i go to wmr theres no codes its just say refund still being processed a date will be provided… Should i have any reason to worry… I’ve been stressing out over this…

    I really appriciate your feedback

  56. Smitty says

    I got a Ref code 9001 I am the only person on refund so I didn’t enter another ss# ……also says tax topic 152……I called and the women really acted like she had no clue what she was even doing but anyhow she kept putting me on hold then finally said it was error in there system no fault of mine……my question is how long will it take to get my refund? The women said up too 8 weeks is this right? Why am I being held up for there systems fault if that even true…..

    • says

      Tax Topic 152 simply means you’re getting a refund. 9001 is a potential identity theft issue – typically because you used an alternate SSN. If you didn’t, just hang tight and check back. It will usually resolve itself just fine pretty quickly.

    • says

      It means that they are reviewing your return manually. Read your letter. It tells you what may have been the problem.

      For example:
      Your return was selected because we are reviewing one or more of the following:
      – Income you reported on your return
      – Income tax withholding amounts you reported on your return
      – Claims for tax credits you made on your return
      – Business income you reported on your return

      It also usually says what you need to do or don’t need to do:
      You are not required to do anything at this time. If you have not received your refund or been contacted by us within 60 days from the date of this letter, you may call us at the number provided above.

  57. Catherine says

    It’s been over 21 days and the bars are not showing still says processing. There are no codes or any further information. Should I be worried? What should I do?

  58. Shay says

    Hi, I checked where’s my refund and it went from processing all the way to sent. On the day it was supposed to be at my bank I checked where’s my refund again and it read the Take Action notice with a code of 1121. Will I get my refund at all? Note: (it was sent 2/11/15)

  59. allan cohara says

    Thank for the answer of 570 code I looked at transcript this morning and now a 2nd 570 code appears one has a date of 3/2 next to it and the other has 3/9 what does that mean now. I filed through turbo tax and accepted on the fitst day irs was taking returns is there a glitch in the system and someone manually reviewed it and put on a 2nd 570 ??

  60. Altimece says

    Hi,
    I filed my return on 2/2/15 and got accepted the same day. I had my bars for a few days with the tax topic 152, and a few days later my bars left and it was saying the standard message. Now I have No bars and No tax topic, I called the IRS and they said that everything looked fine with my account and they weren’t showing any delays, now my 21st day is Monday, if I don’t receive my return by then, what could the problem be?
    . Thanks.

  61. Jen says

    Hi Robert, first I would like to say that your knowledge is quite impressive! as for my detailed question, I was accepted 2/13 and in normal orange bar processing, now orange disappeared and says still processing refund date when available with the 152 topic. Also, I pulled up transcripts and it says no tax return filed under code explanation. That’s a little concerning, should I be worried?

    then this morning I checked with wmr and got a message that I may not have entered my information correctly to verify personal tax data and try again, I chose the option to say it was correct rather than to re-enter then it gave me a message stating they could not provide any information about my refund and that I must wait at least 24 hours after I get the acknowledgement email that my tax return was received by the irs. I realize after looking this over the refund amount I entered on wmr was wrong I flipped the last 2 numbers but didn’t notice at the time when I should’ve just chose the re-enter option. I have since checked with the correct amount and it is back to the still processing refund date when available and the topic 152. Do I have reason for concern and based on my mistaken entry on wmr did I delay things further?

  62. Lisa says

    My tax parpare told me my refund would come in 21 days. So I started checking on it when my sister who filed the same day as me got hers in 5 When I checked wmr.it saved take action ! Your refund maybe delayed 1121 what does this mean?

  63. JCA says

    I efiled on the 1dt of feb. A week later got the 9001 code. I called and confirmed my identity and taxes. They finally told me it’s now processing and I’ll have to wait 6 weeks for a return or a letter. Is it really going to take 6 weeks?

  64. tatiana says

    received a notice in the mail saying we are randomly under investigation for our tax return adn it will come late. also there is nothing we can do about it. im confused im a lower class family and i do my taxes every year claiming my same kids never had this problem what is going on…. and on wheres my refund it says still processing….but at the professional tax place that i did my taxes she said it was approved im lost

    • says

      The letter you received typically says your Return is under Review – not investigation. Returns are reviewed randomly and it doesn’t mean you did anything wrong. If there was an error they find, the will contact you via mail.

  65. Altimece says

    Hi,
    So today is my 21st day, I called the IRS twice and got two different responses, first I was told that I had a hold on mine and that it can take 6-8 weeks from February 9. I spoke with someone else and was told that I have a representative looking at my refund for different reasons and it will take 4-6 weeks from February 9. She said that if they needed anything from me that a letter will be sent out but it doesn’t show that a letter isn’t due to be sent out to me. Now my question is, will it really take 4-8 weeks to receive my refund?

  66. latasha says

    Hello Robert, Friday was my 21st day for my where’s my refund processing, then saturday I received a direct deposit date and today I look and it says refund could be delayed topic 1121. I called and the first lady said that my bank rejected it I called my bank and they said the IRS never even attempted to send my refund and then when I called the IRS back the lady basically was saying that it could be fraud or anything else basically trying to make it seem like I put fraudulent information on my taxes, I just need a better understanding and what code 1121 is all about because at this point I am lost..

  67. John Ferraro says

    For almost 2 weeks I had a reference code 9001 with tax topic 152, after my refund was accepted. Now it’s telling me this on the wmr site;

    We cannot provide any information about your refund. Be sure to:
    verify your filing date;
    check with your tax preparer or tax software provider; or
    verify you received your electronically filed acknowledgement e-mail.
    If you filed a complete and accurate tax return, your refund should be issued within 21 days of the received date. Processing may take longer under certain circumstances

    I filed myself, have received the accepting email about the refund and I know exactly what day I filed. Today is the 22nd day, I did ask to have a check mailed to me…. Anything wrong that you can think of?

      • John Ferraro says

        Well it’s gone back to tax topic 152, and says if I have any questions or need more info, then I can call and mention reference code 9001. Is it possible that because I requested a paper check, that it takes longer to get any info about if it’s been approved or not.?

  68. yolanda says

    i checked my irs transcript. this is the code: 846 3/16/2015. i efiled on 1/18/2015, was accepted on 1/20/2015; dd was sent on 1/30/2015; rejected by green dot bank on 1/30/2015; irs received funds back the same date; i know that i am getting a check in the mail.

  69. Sylvia says

    Hi 9001 try on line and doesn’t let me I am also calling it been almost 2 hours and nothing yet but when I fanaly talk to them how long does it take it been 21 days all ready.

    • Angel says

      Income tax withholding amounts you reported on your retune
      Claims for tax credits you made on your return
      Business income you reported on your return. Please heal don understand to well.

  70. Tiana M says

    Hello Robert,
    Today meet my 21 days i talked to a representer today and he told me that he couldnt access my account because this is my first year filing and he told me to go to my local irs in my city and show my id since he cant see it by it being a phone call and they will be able to pull my account to tell me what going on… I gave him all my information and he still said he wasnt able to access my account and to take my id to a local irs… Im so confused

  71. Teresa says

    What does technical difficulties code 110 mean when trying to look at transcripts? For some reason it keeps telling me that. Wmr has also been saying processing blah blah but for a week now it’s not even locating my return. Keeps asking me to recheck my information. What is going on? Thank you

  72. Daniel Klatt says

    Hi about my return, I E-Filed using TurboTax on 1/23/2015 was accepted 1/24/2015. I had one orange bar for about a week and then they where replaced by the “your return is still being processed and no refund date is yet available” message, and no tax code. It’s now been a little over 4 weeks and still no refund, should I be worried? If not how much longer should I expect to be waiting? This is my first year filing, my filing status is single with no dependents. And I chose to have my refund direct deposited on my Readydebit card. I have tried calling twice but have not been able to speak with a live rep, so now I’m starting to get a little worried and frustrated.

  73. Jennifer says

    I have a questions I filed on 2/13/2015 after 11am and I went on Wheres my refund on the 14th and it was received, The bar has been their until Monday the 23rd it disappeared and now it just says Your tax return is still being processes, A refund date will be provided when available. It is not showing my refund amount or anything and I am not able to view my transcripts either. I have never had this happen, should I be worried?

      • Jennifer says

        One more question. This is me and my husbands first time filing together since being married. Last year had separate addresses. Well I am trying to pull up our transcripts and I am looking at mine and it just has N/A and no refund on file on mine. Would my husbands show something different if I log into his on our update? Or should both his and mine be this same when I log into mine?

        I am just realizing our tax guy spelled our street address wrong so when trying to log into the husbands transcript it locked me out =( but mine should show this years correct?

        Sorry I am just so confused and stressed over this.

        Thanks!

        • says

          Hi Jennifer, don’t be stressed over this. Realize we live in an amazing time where you’re lucky to get your tax refund as quickly as you do. Just 7 years ago, it would always take 1-2 months to get your refund, and there was never a way to check the status of it!

          You and your husband will both show up with the same info. If your street address is wrong, you still might get your direct deposit, but you could also get a Code 1121, which will result in a letter being mailed to you. That could be a problem.

          To be safe I would simply call the IRS, and then I would raise hell with your tax preparer. Next year, please consider doing your taxes yourself unless you have a very complicated scenario. It costs more to use a tax preparer and most errors I see come from them.

  74. nekey says

    I filed 1/27/15 and on 2/14/15 I checked WMR and I had all 3 bars and it said my return will be Deposited on 2/19/15 and up under it, it also said allow 1-5 days which the fifth day would’ve been 2/24/15. I went to pick up my check on the 19th and it didn’t come. So on Saturday the 21 st, I checked WMR again and it said, ‘There is a delay in processing your tax return and your Refund date may have changed’! There was also code 1121 with a telephone number and Extension 362. But when I Google the 1121 code, I’ve read where the IRS said to do nothing but wait and if they need more info, they will usually contact a person through mail. What Does this mean, I’m not getting my money? Or am I being Audited?

    • says

      It means there was some type of typo or error on your return surrounding your bank info. I’ve seen it a lot where the name doesn’t match the account, or you messed up a digit in the numbers. As such it bounced back to the IRS and they will cut you a check.

  75. Jennifer P says

    My husband and I filed our taxes on 02/10/15. We knew we owed just over $700 to the IRS. We got code 1381 on WMR. That was two weeks ago. WMR still hasn’t changed to even tell us we were approved or not. How long does it take to actually get your refund after getting that code?

  76. DARLA says

    My efile was accepted in Jan. 28 2013/direct deposit…all bars on WMR disappeared on Feb 14…after 21 days I called the IRS and the rep said that there was an unusual code(didnt give it) and she researched it and said that everything looked fine at that point and to check back on Feb 23…called on Feb 23 and was told that there was on issue with PTC section but my 1095 was correct…he said that department had 40 days to resolve the issue…spoke with another rep 3 days later that told me the issue was resolved on Feb 23 and that I should hear something in 4wks or maybe less…. once an issue is resolved without a letter or input from myself… what is the process from that point? what could be going on??? no bars and topic 152 is showing… Thanks for any insight

  77. Jessie says

    It’s been 2 weeks since we filed,,,, still on 1st bar, it’s never taken this long, return is over 10k, I was told that’s a reason to take longer…. Should I be worried? Actually I already am.

  78. Jen says

    I filed my taxes on 1/27/2015, first the irs say I had a processing error but it was corrected by 2/23/2015. Next I wad told that they were almost finish processing my return just to turn around on 2/26 and send my tax return to reviee. They are issuing me a little money, but not my EIC OR. CTC. Now I have codes 1242 and 151 on WMR. What D’s oes this mean. My dependents haven’t changed, one I have carried for 19yrs and my gchild for 3yrs. Why would they just audit the EIC part

  79. Confused says

    I filed my taxes on 1/23/2015 and they have been in limbo since. WMR finally updated to show that my return is being reviewed with reference code 1242, tax topic 151. I owe no money according to my records AND the Treasury Offset department (at least it says no non-tax debt, and I know of no tax related debt). My transcript has, in this order, code 150/cycle 20150805/date 03-16-2015, followed by codes 806, 766, 766, 768, 810, 811, and 846. None of the other codes have cycles listed, and the codes 806, 766 and 768 have a date of 04-15-2015, while the 810, 811 and 846 codes have a date of 03-16-2015. There is a discrepancy between what it shows for my refund amount, with the difference being listed as a credit under account balance, but at least it does show a refund amount on one of the lines (that account balance amount is equal to my Healthcare credit, btw).

    When we called initially after the first 21 days to see what our return delay was, we were told that our return was caught in a system glitch that was all the IRS’s fault and that we just had to wait for their system to reset. We only just got a status change from the endless “processing” with no bars on WMR today. Can you please help me understand what all of these codes mean?

  80. Tremayne hall says

    I just checked the where’s my refund website and its telling me to take action with a topic code of 151 something about appeals what does that mean

  81. Jasmine says

    Hey robert , i have some questions for you , i filled on jan-28-2015 got accepted same day then in feb-7-2015 wmr stop showing bars saying something about call 800# and 9001 reference code so on feb-9-2015 i call to that number and i was told that i have to idverify , so i did it , the lady told me the now that i verify my id my refund was good to go and its being processing again but i will have to wait 6 weeks ,, today its feb-28-2015 and wmr keep showing the 9001 code im not seeing any updates , but every time i call they said everithing its ok just wait , its that true ? I will have to wait the whole 6 weeks ? ,, and another question i filled a married joint , and the direct deposit has to go to my account that its only on my name , its that ok ? I have chase btw , hope u respund soon , thanks for reading :)

  82. Scott says

    I had a problem with them identifying me and so I went in and that got clearedup and now I am getting reference 1242 after she told me that I was out of the wmr loop and I would get it in 4-6 weeks

  83. rodney says

    its almost been 21 days still only one bar showing on wheres my refund why is it taking so long to process?do it mean its complications with my return?

  84. Kimberly says

    Hi, i got code 1242 and tax topic 151. I have read on both but its very vague, is there anythi g specific it could be asking for like info on my dependents or anything like that? And i owed them 963$ from 2013 could that be a reason for the topic 151?

  85. Bob says

    I saw code 152 on “where is my refund” and now that code is not there anymore. All I see is your refund is being processed and a date will be given. I received my state tax yesterday and saw that they deducted money for not paying a personal property tax back in 2010 I have not received my federal tax check yet. Since they deducted this money from my state taxes, is this why I am not seeing code 152 and my federal taxes will be sent to me soon?

  86. K.Palmer says

    Hi Robert,
    Like many, filed Jan. 20, accepted on 21st. No movement until Feb 20th when I received a letter cp05. Although no action is required at this time, they could take up to Apr 8th to continue my review. Called automated lines about letter, no live rep without tremendous wait times, but system stated for my 2014 transcript that credits processed on my account in 3 installments on Apr 15th, a month plus away. No codes are showing on wmr like others. Curious? Heard you or seen such a thing? Same filing, same job, same children, minus the fact I bought coverage through the marketplace this year. I’m Stumped!

  87. keith says

    I got message 1341, I called the IRS and they told me that there was nothing outstanding, but they were just checking to be sure???

  88. Bill says

    Filed my return on 2/13 through H&R Block, and got a reply about 30 minutes after stating the IRS accepted my return. Its now March 1st, and the IRS website still says:

    We cannot provide any information about your refund. You must wait at least 24 hours after you get the acknowledgement e-mail that your tax return was received by the IRS

    Please read the following information related to your tax situation:

    Tax Topic 152, Refund Information

    Its never taken this long. Just wanting to be sure all is ok.

    I got accepted in the 20th I called the irs after 21 days they said I need to verify my identity I did that a week ago…..when I go to wmr it still didn’t show any bars what’s the next step do they have to input information or should I just wait to see what’s going to happen how long does it usually take after they verified my identity to receive a refund

    can you please explain this?

    FYI
    There’s no typo on names or wrong bank info. The tax would be rejected if that was the case

    Robert,

    I have filed some some tax for my tax payers since 2/10/15 and they still haven’t received their refunds.
    when checking on WMR it says :
    Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.
    Please Note: For refund information, please continue to check here, or use our free mobile app, IRS2Go. Updates to refund status are made no more than once a day.

    They were supposed to get their refund less than 21 days. What can I tell them at this point? They call me non stop asking about their refunds and I don’t blame them.

    Any suggestion Robert

    • says

      Well the 21 days is only the point that last year 90% of payers received their refund. Some have to wait longer. If they don’t have an error code, there is nothing wrong and they just have to wait it out.

      • Schneider says

        Robert,
        Thank you for the clarification.

        What would you say about this case?
        I received the that message “This return was accepted by IRS on 2/2/2015″ from the bank that i use for my client.

        This person hasn’t received her refund but there’s no code and the client keeps calling to find out what’s going on.

        Any suggestion?

  93. heather says

    Hello.
    I just wanted to say I as well received the famous 9001 ref. Code. I called, and the IRS instructed me to call and verify my Identity. No status bar changed as of yet. It’s been 1 week since then. I don’t know of I will still receive a letter or not in the mail? Or if I did all that was needed?

  94. Monique says

    I filed my taxes paper sent on January 27th 2015 over night express on March 20th the where my refund said they received my taxes. It’s now March 3rd and it still says being processed. How much longer should it take to process? It’s almost been 6 weeks for everything :(

    • says

      Well, when you send in your taxes via mail you add about 6-8 weeks automatically to the processing time. Basically someone at the IRS has to take your return and manually input it into the computer. That’s why you should always eFile. Always.

      So, since it’s been about 6 weeks, you probably have about another 5-6 weeks to wait.

      • Monique says

        So even though it says I should expect a refund within 21 days (it says that on the website after I put in my information ) It should still take longer?

        • says

          Yes, it will take about 21 days from when they input all of your information into the computer – since you mailed a paper copy that adds about 3-6 weeks from the date they receive your return.

  95. Marie says

    So I went to e file my taxes and someone claimed my child without permission! So it was rejected. It could have been her father but I haven’t seen him for over a year and neither has she. I’m the only one who has taken care of her. I sent my taxes out paper file. What’s next? Is there a possibility they will send me a check and then investigate/audit later? I feel so offended I even have to do this because I’m the only one who has ever taken care of it. What are the next steps? Please give me some insight on what’s going to happen! :( bummer this sucks

    • says

      You took the right step in mailing your return. The IRS will then ask you to verify your identity and your child’s identity. Then you’ll get your refund and they will go after the fraudulent one. It’s just going to take time.

  96. naomi says

  97. Nikki DiBartol says

    Also i was an identity theft victim in 2011… I used my temp pin last year and got my taxes back without a problem in about 2 weeks. This year i used a temp. pin . Coould this be the reason i am getting that message of it is still being processed

  98. wally says

    Hi Robert, I filed on the 24th of January 2015 accepted 30min later. I checked WMR its still on accepted as of today Feb 10th. Only reference # is the generic code that refers to 152. Is there a reason its not approved? Should I be concerned? Usually I have the funds in 13 days. Thank you in advance. This is the first year I have used Turbo Tax. Usually use Jackson Hewitt.

  99. Beverly Williams says

    Wally,
    Mine is saying the exact same thing & it’s been 14 days since I filed. Still on one bar with that 152 tax topic. This is so ridiculous. The irs is quick to take action to get their money, but they will sit on ours. Something should be done about this.

  100. Christie haynes says

    Hi my question Is I checked my husband tax return and all of his bars has disappeared there’s nothing up there it says that his return is being processed and that he will get a refund date when it’s available it doesn’t have a topic code or anything does that mean he’s being audited or under review
