tax refunds

Postby MB131174 » Sat Mar 01, 2014 7:22 am

Is anyone else experiencing a delay in their federal tax refunds? I e-filed on 2/5/14 and here it is 3/1/14 and still have no update on my return. The IRS site says my refund is still being processed.

When I initially filed my tax software informed me that the IRS was behind in processing refunds due to the government shutdown. (I thought nice, another convenient excuse for them to hold your money longer interest free....)

In any case what are you going to do - these are after all our fascist masters who are just so concerned with "protecting" us. Cut them some slack, monitoring our financial transactions all day long has gotta be a tough gig, God bless America. And the Reich.

I experienced the exact same thing.

I also did my taxes early and got it back pretty fast. If I remember correctly when you check the irs site it should give you an estimate as to when they will release your refund. If you used HR block or any service like that try to give them a call and see if they know anything.

I put my tax refunds in on 1/31/2014 and got my money by 2/12/2014. So it was a quick process, I used TurboTax as well. Got $2 cashback because of ShopDiscover :)

I still owe my accountant one document, so mine haven't gone in yet. But last year I had mine within a week, e-file with direct deposit. I'd call if I were you...

I e-filed for free using H&R block then did a little jig because the gov't owed me $1412 and I only owed my state $66. Then a late W-2 arrived courtesy of the company that fired me late last summer. Whammo. I had to amend and now owe a significant amount of money.

Changed my withholding to one for my current job. Fingers crossed this is the last time I have to owe taxes. Coming off two years in a row where I owed thousands (thanks to previously mentioned employer), I can use a break!

My taxes took just over a week to direct deposit. Now I'm waiting for DC to give me my money before I turn around and return all the funds I got.
Citi Forward ($10.1K), AmEx Blue Cash Everyday ($30K), Chase Freedom ($12.4K), Discover it ($5.5K), Barclaycard Arrival ($12.5K), L.L. Bean Visa ($5K). FICO 806 (TU), 812 (EQ), 806 (EX).
