    Refund status?

    How many times a week does the irs update their refund status infor? also we filed 1 day before my friend and her return is All done with ecxpected refund date 2/8 ours is still being processed? could this be because our return status is married/joint and there are more forms due to interest income, student loan interest, and mortage interest worksheets and where hers is just a w2 with 1 dependant? I dunno any insight would be gladly appreciated!! thanks =oD

    The IRS updates their status page on WED of each week. Today my status changed from a general refund date to a direct deposit date of Feb 8th. I have never known the IRS to update on any other day of the week. I think if you are claiming student loan interest or any of the educational credits, alternative minimum tax, ect., that your refund will be delayed. My daughter is claiming the Hope Credit for her college loans but she is waiting to file hers until after FEB 11 because that is what the IRS said would be the first date they would start processing those kind of returns. Here is the link: http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=176605,00.html?portlet=2 That is probably why your return has not been processed yet--hopefully it will next week!

    • We all have different answers: I e-filed my federal and state taxes (Turbo Tax Basic) on 1/25/08 evening. My state tax refund was direct deposited on 1/29/08. My federal tax refund was deposited this early this morning 2/6/08. The IRS website said that my direct deposit date was 2/12/08. The IRS direct deposit table said 2/8/06.

    • I'm wondering myself because I filed electronically through the tax assistance program with direct deposit on 1/26/08. The irs is saying they haven't gotten it yet. I'm getting worried.

    • I do know there are some delays if you had to use the 1040A schedule 2 form..that could be one reason why but im not sure what forms you used. I filed mine on Jan. 31 and Im still waiting on the IRS refund status as well..who knows its just drives me nuts each year!!!
