Filing Season Update

Latest Information on Tax Season and Refunds


Common Refund Questions and Answers Updated

Feb. 26, 2014

Will ordering a transcript help you determine when you’ll get your refund?

No, a tax transcript will not help you determine when you will get your refund. This is among the common myths and misconceptions that are often repeated in social media. The codes listed on tax transcripts do not provide any early insight into when a refund will be issued. The best way to check on your refund is by visiting “Where’s My Refund?” While transcripts include a lot of detailed information regarding actions taken on your account, the codes do not mean the same thing for everyone and they do not necessarily reflect how any of these actions do or do not impact the amount or timing of your refund. IRS transcripts are best and most often used to validate past income and tax filing status for mortgage, student and small business loan applications and to help with tax preparation.

Refund Update

Feb. 21, 2014

The IRS issues more than 9 out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days from the day the IRS receives tax returns. Recent filing season data, as of Feb. 14 shows the IRS has already issued more than 31 million refunds this year. While the IRS works hard to issue refunds as quickly as possible some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons including when a return is incomplete, includes errors, includes Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, or needs further review.

The IRS reminds taxpayers that the 21 day timeframe begins when you are notified by your preparer or tax preparation software company that the IRS has acknowledged acceptance of your tax return. Acceptance in this case means the IRS has accepted the return for processing. Further reviews may still be necessary. This year, Jan. 31 was the first day the IRS could start processing tax returns; even though you or your preparer may have submitted a return electronically before that date.

The best advice for all taxpayers is to check Where’s My Refund on IRS.gov. The Where’s My Refund web and phone tools are updated just once a day so there is no need to check more often. If we need more information to process your return, we will contact you — usually by mail. IRS phone and walk-in representatives can only research the status of a refund if it’s been 21 days or more since the return was filed electronically, more than 6 weeks since a paper return was mailed, or if Where’s My Refund? directs you to contact us.

IRS Statement on 1121
Feb. 12, 2014

Note to Taxpayers


The IRS is off to a strong start to the tax season. Through early February, millions of refunds worth billions of dollars have already been issued. There are no major issues with tax refunds or processing at this time.

Every year, especially at the start of tax season, people are concerned about getting their refunds quickly. The IRS issues nine out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days after the IRS receives the return. Some refunds take longer because of other factors, including IRS work to prevent refund fraud and identity theft. There are many questions about the process. The best source of information about refunds is on IRS.gov, including the YouTube video on the refund process and refund FAQ page.

Early February 1121 Information


A very small percentage of taxpayers may see an 1121 reference number if they check “Where’s My Refund?” after they initially were provided a projected refund date by the tool. The IRS is aware of this situation, and emphasizes that the small group of taxpayers who see this reference number should continue checking Where’s My Refund for an update. If we need more information to process their return, we will contact them — usually by mail.

The IRS began processing returns on Jan. 31, and we’ve already issued millions of refunds. The IRS works hard to issue refunds as quickly as possible, but as part of our effort to prevent improper payments some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons, such as when a return includes errors, is incomplete, or needs further review. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.

Q: What should taxpayers do if they receive an 1121 reference number when they check Where’s My Refund?

A: The best advice for all taxpayers is to continue checking Where’s My Refund for a refund date. If we need more information to process their return, we will contact them — usually by mail. The web and phone tools are updated just once a day so there is no need to check more often. Our phone and walk-in representatives can only research the status of a refund if it’s been 21 days or more since the return was filed electronically, more than 6 weeks since a paper return was mailed, or if Where’s My Refund? directs a taxpayer to contact us as in the case of those who see the 1121 reference number.

Q: I read in social media that a reference number 1121 means I’m being audited. Is that true?

A: No, this code is simply a reference number that our telephone representatives use to help them research your account. It does not mean the taxpayer is being audited. If the IRS needs more information to process the return, we will contact the taxpayer — usually by mail.
