    Tax refund

    Anyone else having delays getting back a refund? I go to the IRS site and it says:

    "We have received your tax return and it is being processed. Your expected refund date has been changed due to processing delays. You should receive your refund by February 21, 2012. Please wait until that date to contact us again because we cannot take any action until then. Thank you for your patience."


    It's still not showing up in my bank. The bank info hasn't changed and I got my Iowa refund a couple of days ago.


    Anyone else?

    That's so unlike a massive federal government agency to not be crack-a-lackin' fast.

    Re: Tax refund

    I got the State refund pretty quickly, the Federal refund took at least ten days to two weeks.

    No, we filed through turbotax and got the refund three days after the confirmation.

    Same here. Don't recall ever getting the state back first.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Tax refund

    IRS still experiencing delays in sending tax refunds - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com

    Last month, the IRS said there would be a week delay for the earliest filers because of a computer snafu in getting up a system to find identity theft before refund checks were actually issued.
    The federal agency said those people filing after Jan. 26 would not have delays.
    But the agency continued to have a slower response partly because they had a backlog from the earliest cases being delayed, tax preparers said.
    In a statement, the IRS said it successfully opened the filing season and "refunds have been issued to millions of taxpayers. When the IRS announced the opening of the 2012 filing season, it advised taxpayers who electronically file and select direct deposit that they could see their refunds in 10 to 21 days. Some taxpayers are getting refunds much faster, but at this time taxpayers should expect refunds to be issued as indicated in the original IRS guidelines."
    The agency also said in its release that workers have resolved a recent online glitch: Some people who visited "Where's My Refund," on the IRS.gov website were told "we had no information regarding their return."
    But the IRS statement said, "this was a temporary situation, and virtually all of these cases were resolved."
    People can expect to get an expected refund date when they visit “Where's My Refund.”
    "When a taxpayer receives an acknowledgment message that their e-filed tax return has been received, they can be assured that the IRS has received the tax return," according to the IRS.

    Re: Tax refund

    Fasted way to get it is not to overpay. I always end up paying, no reason to give the govt a free loan.

    I receive this exact same message. I filed using Turbo Tax like I always do. This is the longest I've ever had to wait. I received my State refund a week ago.

    Re: Tax refund

    I think it's relevant to ask how people have gotten along using TurboTax. Since I moved to CO my wife and I have been using an tax preparer, but for $350 I don't think we save that much by using him. Hard to tell. Thinking about doing it myself this year. Advice?

    Wow, I can't believe it took 15 minutes for an "I don't give the government free loans!" guy to show up.
