Where's my refund question?

Here is the message I got when I went to see why we haven't gotten our refund yet.
We have received your tax return and it is being reviewed. You will receive a notice from us requesting additional information from you. When you receive the notice, please provide the requested information within 30 days. You may not receive all or a part of your refund until we receive and review the information we requested from you. If you need more information after you receive our notice, call the number on the notice.

I have no idea why there would be any issues our return is fairly straight forward. I really want to get our return so we can pay off some debt.

My DH called the irs office yesterday and they said they had 90 days!!!! to get back to us about why.

Has anyone had this happen before? How long did it take?

Could it be an audit? Sounds a bit daunting.. or maybe it's just a stall tactic with how busy they have been. Have your previous years been very straight forward too? Maybe this one was very different from previous years and made it auto flagged?

Re: Where's my refund question?

did you change your filing status from last year? Are you sure everything is correct? I've had that happen to me before and it was a little mistake and got it resolved quickly

Re: Where's my refund question?

It is pretty similiar to our return last year. My DH accountant at work did it. After we found this out. He rechecked all of the numbers and couldn't find a mistake. So I don't know.
Mrs Brady- How long did it take to here from them about what the mistake was?

I just wish we could be on to resolving this whatever the issues was.

Re: Where's my refund question?

I've had this happen with a mistyped information, ours was a social security number. Quickly resolved and processed (about 2 more weeks). We've also been audited for years past (not the same year of our return). It took over 6 months to resolve with the IRS with tons of forms sent registered mail and a lot of phone calls. Make sure to track/document all your communication with them. ID numbers of the person you talked with and for any information sent it in a registered or certified mail.

But I wouldn't count on getting the refund anytime soon. If it's a really large amount adjust your W4s so you don't give them money when you don't have to.

Re: Where's my refund question?

Mine is doing the same thing. :/ Really frustrating. I legally changed my name this past year. We've been married since 06 but I only got around to changing my legal name to his last name THIS past year... I'm thinking that could be the reason?

Re: Where's my refund question?

That seems like more info than we are getting. We had our daughter this last year but that is the only big change. The only other thing different if that my parent's cashed in a whole life insurance policy that they had on me and because of the laws it had to go on our tax return but we had a form that was pretty staight forward. But that just made me think. The form was in my maiden name. Could that me the problem?

That sounds like it could be the problem. I hope they let you know soon so you can get things moving.
