Great news for those who filed the first week of February.
The IRS have released the 3rd official 2016 tax refunds for those who filed the first week of February or earlier. Check Where’s My Refund to see if you are the in the direct deposit payout date.
This is the message from the IRS: “Your tax refund is scheduled to be sent to your bank by February 19, 2016. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 24, 2016, check with your bank to see if it has been received.”
Check your Where’s My Refund now to see if you are a part of this direct deposit date.
If you filed in January, now is the time to give the IRS a call. We have some information on how to contact the IRS, here.
Thanks for all your support and we are in the process of working on our Match My Refund contest for this year. Bigger and better cash prices for more than one taxpayer this year.
i filed mines on the 4th of Feb and I’m still at one bar with no ddd. Of course when i call they give the 21 day rule
This has been the only positive news I’ve read since my refund was accepted by the IRS on 02.04.2016. I filed with Turbo Tax on 02.03.2016. Since the Turbo Tax notification stating that the IRS accepted my refund on the 4th, I have not seen any action except for the 1 bar “Refund Accepted” via IRS site. I’ve been reading all the posts in the “I got my refund” site and many who have filed on 02.04.2016 and have been able to reach a live IRS representative who didn’t give them the standard “you must wait 21 days before calling about your refund”, reported that they have been “re-scheduled” and their new “Refund Accepted” date is 02.08.2016 which is a week later than it should have been.
I have been tempted to call the IRS myself, to find out if my return is amongst the others who were re-scheduled or re-sequenced but to even inquire about it won’t make my refund come any quicker, so I’ve been waiting anxiously for any “general news” … reading the “I got my refund” forum sets my emotions up and down because some people have received their refund while others have not and the information is not consistent as to how they filed (self or agency), completed dated versus accepted date by the IRS, approved date if any, direct deposit type (regular bank or temporary debit card), and even if they had issues with last years taxes. There are so many variables to consider and to get people’s hopes up or turn hopes down, is a horrible thing to partake in.
Anyhow … IF this information above IS correct, I did file in the 1st week of February and hope and pray I receive the direct deposit sooner rather than later. Whether or not I was re-scheduled, re-sequenced, or if I had any issues to correct on my Income Tax Return forms … would hinder any possibilities of the “sooner”, I suppose. The “not knowing” is the hardest part.
Whomever posted this information, thank you for giving me a glimpse of hope for a deposit soon – and I understand the risk of having high hopes, therefore, I’ll take it as merely hopeful news. Thanks again.
