What is going on with tax refunds this year? Code 9001, Schedule M or no, NO REFUND... headache!?
(Asks verification questions - filing status, ssn, address, exemptions). We received your return on the 18th. One moment while I research your account further. (One minute later...) What code are you receiving on the wheres my refund? (ref # 9001). Ok let me see what that code means. (holds for 1-2 minutes). Well, it looks like they've sent you a 4464c letter on the 21st. They are holding your refund for a review. It might take a while, but I'm not 100% sure how long it might take. If we send you another letter, just respond to it and things should progress accordingly. As of now (2/1/10) no additional letters have been sent. Thanks for calling.
We are both still without refunds, had to cancel major plans, and have decided to change our witholdings status (so PLEASE, no suggestions about that). If you have some knowledgable insight or you're going through the same thing, we'd love to hear from ya. For those of you in the same boat, I'll keep you updated as well. I think some tax laws may have taken into effect that make it more difficult to get refunds this year, but I'm not sure. Any ideas are welcomed as we're both LOST. God bless! :) Trying to smile in the face of not being able to pay the rent which was due today... what a bummer.
2. I've only checked the site 3 times sense January 15th.
