I went back to look and no form 8962 in filing. I assume because I am working and covered by MC Healthcare (not Marketplace Healthcare).

Unfortunately I filed right before TT made the correction for the ACA PTC change. I wasn't aware of it until I saw it here after I filed. The IRS states that they will correct the return (a $12K payment to a $1K refund), but who knows when. I'm not holding my breath, but at least they haven't transferred the $12K out of my account so there is that...

I filed electronically and the IRS accepted the return on February 18th. Checking the IRS website weekly -- the status was always -- return is being processed. Checked this morning and the status is now, refund approved with the payment to be sent to our bank by the end of the week.

Now, we need our stimulus payment to arrive and we will be very happy.

Congratulations!
They sure didn’t drag out the ACH withdrawal from my checking account. For 2021 I expect a refund since we have more control over this year.
Enjoy your refund!

I filed my fed return electronically on 13 Feb, finally today IRS web shows that on 15 April it was processed. I let them keep my small refund, and nothing showing on our stimulus.

My conclusion is that it is taking them longer than 25 days to go from mail opening to getting the return into the system.
Thanks for that info, Gumby. Did my 2020 taxes on paper. Mailed them in March 1, 2021. Expecting exactly $600 in paper check refund due to having to claim the $600 stimulus on tax form. Have been checking irs.gov wheresmyrefund every couple of weeks. Always says 'no information' and tells me to make sure I have entered my info correctly. Hopefully just stuck in big stack awaiting processing.

Filed online, accepted 2/19, refund finally on its way and due in my account tomorrow. Seems that the IRS is clearing some of the logjam.

We're now getting the same refund (within a couple of dollars) that I submitted before the new PTC law went into effect, deposited by tomorrow. I would have expected that refund to increase by $280 ($650 underpayment penalty - $370 foreign tax credit we had) but I think it didn't because we also deducted the net cost of our HI from my DW's self-employment income. My guess is that given the complex calc involved there it made it a wash, basically, because the HI deduction is impacted by the PTC.

I'm certainly not going to file an amended return, just glad to get the refund. Hopefully stimulus payments will soon follow.

Mystery Solved, I was flagged for ID theft

I filed electronically on Feb 21 with Turbotax. Status has been "in process" since then. I received a letter yesterday ( LTR 5071C) from the IRS stating that I had to verify my identity before they could process my return. I went to the IRS web site and provided the information that they needed. Good news is that I know what's going on with the refund. The not so good news is that they stated that it would be 9 weeks before I see the refund.

I finally broke down and called last week. As it turn out, our tax return was in the 2/12 black hole because we paid quarterly estimated tax under my husband's SSN and sent the return in with my SSN as primary. I guess when this happens they have to manually transfer the quarterly payments to the primary account. When a return came in with this situation it was set aside until there was someone to do the transfer free to work on it. A couple of days after I called, the transfer was accomplished and a direct deposit date of May 5 set.

We did not qualify for stimulus based on 2019 because of RMDs. We do qualify for 2020 since we did not take the RMDs. The delayed processing of our return resulted in 2019 being used for stimulus. I am waiting to see if this gets updated or if we will need to put it on next years tax return.

Filed without a CPA for the first time since 1985!

Received refund in 10 days. H&R Block offered a 3.5% bonus to take it as an Amazon gift card.

I thought about that, but I get 5% cash back when I use my Chase Amazon card, so that would have actually cost me money.

But when you redeem your cash back points, you miss out on 5% cash back too. Where does it all end?

That's why I NEVER "spend" my points on Amazon purchases, I use them as a statement credit! And my health plan offered gift cards for incentives, and the last year I tried to get anything BUT Amazon, when before I had the Amazon rewards credit card I would always get Amazon gift cards.

Hmm, I will look into doing that. I just always automatically used gift cards and points at point of sale.

And indeed our stimulus payments are now showing to be deposited a week after we got the refund.

We filed on 4/8 and expecting a big refund (no, I was not stupid, I just didn't know I would not have to pay back ACA credits when I made a end of the year estimated tax payment). So far, crickets, refund still being processed even though it was quite simple with a standard deduction. Has me worried a bit but seems like this delay is normal?
