Kind of like the pilot of the plane working from home.

This all happened just as the Pandemic started 3 months ago. Returns were also sent to the Fresno, CA IRS office which might make a difference. Funny thing is, I owed $20. and my check was cashed/deposited within days.

And now another IRS issue although not as urgent. My recently deceased mother received a $1,200. Stimulus check a couple of months ago by automatic deposit but the IRS eventually asked everyone who got them to return the money. Because I'm the Executer of the estate and don't want IRS problems down the road I sent them a check as repayment.

You guessed it, IRS hasn't cashed the check yet and I can't close out the estate checking account until they do. Our wonderful government.
I filed electronically on 02/27 and waiting. DGF's son filed around Apr 17th electronically and received his refund.

I'm guessing it wasn't the California IRS office.

DW told me the IRS hasn't cashed the check we sent in on Apr 10. But I'm not worried, I've read the IRS is way behind due to coronavirus.

No. I can't remember where I sent it- Tennessee? Georgia? Somewhere in the south.

If you're in Alabama and you made a payment, you sent it to Charlotte.

The Fresno processing center is used if you're not making a payment and you live in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Washington, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin; so there is probably quite a pile of mail waiting there. Looks like they will reopen the building at the end of this month, so if you're waiting for a refund on a paper return sent there, it may be a few more months before you get it.

Facilities in Georgia, Tennessee, Missouri, and Michigan will bring back workers beginning June 15. Indiana, Ohio, California, Oregon, and Puerto Rico will do so beginning June 29.
I wonder if the number of e-filers will increase next year as a result of the long wait for paper return processing this year.

We certainly won't be e-filing ever again, as our accountant's Intuit account was hacked and our refund (and stimulus check) was paid to someone else's bank account. We had asked for a paper check and instead got nothing. We have filed a fraud report and worked with our congressman's office on this problem. We are still waiting for some action, as the Fraud office won't be open until the end of June and the fraud reports have to be filed on paper. I assume our report is sitting in an mail trailer somewhere in the midwest.

I'm also still waiting. Filed on paper in early March, then e-filed May 19. (Yeah, I know the IRS says not to do that but they owe me over $4,000 and my brother the retired hotshot tax accountant told me to e-file.)

Still shows up as "in process".

They should be padding our refunds with some interest, don't you think? (I know it won't happen, but you know...)

Yes, they would use the 1 basis point interest rate of the leading banks......

The long term results of this will be interesting. Anyone remember the last government shutdown. The story then was that the IRS was overwhelmed by the backlog that happened then and it would take many months if not longer for them to get back to normal.

Low wages for the starting employees and just not enough bodies hired to take care of things in a timely manner. One has to wonder if they are now in such a deep hole that they will soon be rendered toothless. Certainly one of the drivers for people following the tax rules is fear of being caught and punished. If the citizens start to believe they are so understaffed and unorganized that punitive enforcement is very unlikely, I wonder what will follow in it's wake?

They do pay interest. For paper returns, it starts 45 days after the due date. This year's due date is July 15, so interest payments would start in September for returns that were mailed by July 15th and not processed by the end of August.

Thank you. I didnt realize that, but that's only fair as if we were late paying our dues, we would have to pay interest to them.

Just saw this announcement from the IRS, which came out a couple of days ago: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-sta...erest-payments

Quote:
Interest on individual 2019 refunds reflected on returns filed by July 15, 2020 will generally be paid from April 15, 2020 until the date of the refund. Interest payments may be received separately from the refund. By law, the interest rate on both overpayment and underpayment of tax is adjusted quarterly. The interest rate for the second quarter, ending on June 30, 2020, is 5% per year, compounded daily. The interest rate for the third quarter, ending September 30, 2020, is 3% per year, compounded daily.
So, I was wrong about interest not accruing until September. It sounds like even if you don't file until July 15, your refund will now accrue interest retroactively to April 15.

Wow, thank you for posting this. At least, it makes sense that they pay for interest, as they force us to pay interest when/if we are late. They will be paying a lot of interest this year...
