I filed my taxes early in February and have yet to receive my refund. Is anyone else also having their tax refund delayed longer than usual?May 2, 2021 12:27 am at 12:27 am #1969983ujmParticipant
Call the IRS.May 2, 2021 12:28 am at 12:28 am #1969982GadolhadorahParticipant
The IRS has said that there could be lengthy delays in issuing refunds this year due to both physical limitations resulting from most of its Staff working remotely under Federal covid restrictions and the huge increase in workload resulting from distribution of two rounds of relief checks enacted by Congress. They are giving priority to the emergency covid relief checks and processing normal refunds as fast as they can. In congressional testimony 2 weeks ago, the IRS acknowledged there were still millions of pending refunds from the 2019 tax year and the backlog is growing. They also said that fewer than 5 percent of telephone inquiries were being answered. I found the automated online inquiry system on the IRS website to be of little help in getting actual status information.May 2, 2021 12:29 am at 12:29 am #1969978yaakov doeParticipant
I filed at the end of February and got my refund within 3 weeks. There’s a number to call but you must give them some numbers off your return to use this service.May 2, 2021 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm #1970087CTLAWYERParticipant
Refund? Unless it is because of a tax credit, why would you loan money interest free to the US Government.
This morning I finished the returns for personal and several family members. Having adjusted withholding and/or estimated payments during the year, 6 are sending payments to the government in amounts less than $100, the other is getting a refund, as a granddaughter had taxes withheld on Unemployment and the last Recovery bill made the first $10,000 (or so) tax free. She is getting back $700.
I do not understand the attitude that a tax refund is forced savings, take x amount from your pay each check and bank it.May 2, 2021 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm #1970118Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
if you file on paper, you’ll be waiting for a long time.
it is also not a mitzva to have a refund. It means that you volunteered to pay in advance to the government – money that you could have spent on tzedoka or your family – and now you are nicely asking to please give it back to me. IRS is surely following a halokho that in a case of sofek, the money stays in place, at least when it is you asking for money. So, plan accordingly for the next year.May 2, 2021 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #1970158Reb EliezerParticipant
The first min $600.00 was distributed in January. You must file for a refund for this indicatiing your banking information to receive this and the next check of min $1400 from the IRS as a direct deposit before May 17th. If you use software to file and possibly the previous year (2019) was not received, enter ‘0’ into the AGI amount.May 2, 2021 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #1970188Reb EliezerParticipant
I answered on the COVID Reief checks figuring that you did not get it either. Make sure that the IRS has the direct deposit information otherwise it can take a long time.May 2, 2021 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #1970186akupermaParticipant
Covid10 (and teleworkers who aren’t as efficient as when they come to the office)
Congress (which changed the tax law after filing was open basically the IRS to start over from scratch)
Delayed filing date (which delays the deadline for paying refunds before they have to pay interest)May 3, 2021 11:41 am at 11:41 am #1970406GadolhadorahParticipant
Filing electronically with simple returns (income only perhaps with small 1099 income) should be fast since process is now automated. Anything else (aka paper returns, complex itemized deductions or deductions exceeding certain range, substantial cap gains or business expense deductions for Schedule C, etc.) almost certain to take several months.May 9, 2021 1:25 am at 1:25 am #1972023whitecarParticipant
Mine was just processed and will be in my bank within a few days according to the IRS websiteMay 13, 2021 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #1974373Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
In the name of equity, the wait time in days will be equal to your income divided by 1000; squared if you have no tan.
