What is going on with tax refunds this year? Code 9001, Schedule M or no, NO REFUND... headache!?
Making Work Pay is a new credit this year that Obama put into act. It shouldn't have much of an effect on your refund time. Although, it has in a whole slowed down refunds a little bit due to people having received the $250 dollar stimulus earlier this year and still trying to claim Making Work Pay, or people not claiming Making Work Pay that should of. But, as far as filing a Schedule M it shouldn't make any effect. As far as your return going into review, do you receive EIC? I've heard this year their cracking down on EIC claims and it's throwing a lot of people into review.

I received the same code as well. When I called, a rep explained that my return is still processing. The code has nothing to do with checking status on WMR. Call them to find out whats going on.

Just to put your mind at ease, I've also heard that due to so many early filers, the sytem automatically kicked a LARGE # of 1040 filers to manual review (by accident).

Mine was similar but not sure about the error code. i did my taxes on the 14th adn were accepted Jan 18th but my deposit date is feb. 9th. My friend filed after me, got back more money than i did and received it on Jan 29th. I called IRS this morning because my WMR said no information available. The guy said I would be receiving my deposit on Feb 5th...just keepin my fingers crossed!

Filed on 1/15/10. As usual it was accepted with no problems. The info has been the same for 16 years. Received the same info mention above with ref 9001. I have not received a letter and wmr keep saying they have no info on return. Has anyone received a refund yet?

I went through this last year. My advice to you is to stay on top of it because I just got 2008 taxes in December of 2009. It sounds like you are being audited. I had that same thing happen to me. At some point get an advocate. This is a free service and a tax payer advocate is a third party that works with you to get your refund faster. If the IRS asks you for information, try to get it to them that same day and keep calling to make sure they have it becuase I would fax thi ngs to them and 2 months later, they will say they never received it. I would fax my information 3 times and mail it. That is my advice on it.

Sadly they come up with these "tax credits" now that actually seem to slow down our refunds since so many people are getting flagged. Seems like a stalling idea to hold up refunds since they used to go somewhat smoothly before this.

I don't know how helpful I will be other than sympathizing with your situation as we appear to be in the same boat! I e-filed on 1/17 through H&R Block online. My return was accepted without errors on the 18th. However, every time I went to the Where's My Refund page on the IRS Site, there was nothing there, no updates or deposit date, etc. I called H&R Block and IRS and still nothing - I was told everything was fine and I should receive my direct deposit on 1/29/10. Well, on 1/29/10 my deposit never made it to my bank, but I did start receiving a msg. on WMR with error code 9001. I also got a letter in the mail just like yours which no one at IRS seems to be able to explain or give any tangible reasons as to why my return was picked for review?! I also got the $400 making work pay credit - it was automatically included with H&R Block....not sure if that is what flagged us, or perhaps early filing, but the whole situation is very frustrating. The only thing I know for sure is that we are waiting for 45 days from the date of the letter to either get our refund, a partial refund or to supply additional information. According to the CSR rep I spoke to at the IRS toll free number, all of this is random. Good luck! Would love to hear back and see if others are getting this situation resolved.

The code 9001 simply means you have exceeded the amount of times you can check WMR "wheres my refund portal" you are only allowed a certain amount of times to do an inquiry! so you probably checked WMR so many times. you have to wait 24hrs to try again. WMR only updates sunday night and wednesday.
