Same thing is happening to us. We filed on Feb 14th. The Wheres my refund site said we should get our refund by 3/11 then 3/16. Then we got 2 different reference numbers to contact customer service. They first said it had to do with the homebuyer credit, then we called and the told us somebody accidentally entered my social instead of my husbands when inputing the info in the system, so then had to wait another 6-8 weeks after it was fixed. Then we had a date of 4/5, which is today. We called today and they first said they were waiting on an amendment to match up with our original return. Called them back again stating we didnt file an amendment and the next rep told us that they recieved all the paperwork and is now ready to process and it should be another 3-5 weeks!! Ugh!!!

I was supposed to get my refund on 3/11 and ofcourse it did not happen. The on 3/16, I had within a few hour period, three codes on WMR: a 1481, a 1206 and 8002. I called the IRS and they said that everything was prcessed and worked out and I should receive my refund within a couple of weeks. Next day WMR gave me a date of 4/5/11 to receive it. Guess what, that day is today; hoever, I now have a code of 8002 on WMR and no date. I called the IRS and they said it was still be processed (apparently that was not done like the last IRS rep told me last onth). Now they say it could be a coupl of more weeks. Does anyone know what in the workd is going on???

Owning a home has many benefits. When you make a mortgage payment, you are building equity. And that's an investment. Owning a home also qualifies you for tax breaks that assist you in dealing with your new financial responsibilities- like insurance, real estate taxes, and upkeep- which can be substantial. But given the freedom, stability, and security of owning your own home, they are worth it.

Wait 30 days is the standard response. They had no information as to when I would actually get the refund. This is frustrating because we rely on that money to catch up from winter season when my husband works no overtime. Just frustrating!

I Just got off the Phone and was told I wouldn't get mine till the end of April.

    Before you raise a margarita, check out these five smart, and easy, post-filing tax moves:

    The new season also is a great time for spring tax cleaning. Give away clothing and household goods you no longer use and get a charitable tax deduction.

    May 23: If you're hitting the road this long Memorial Day weekend, be on the lookout for bargain gasoline. State, local and federal fuel excise taxes can really ramp up pump prices.

    May 30: The arrival of warmer weather also means home improvement projects, such as the planting of bird-friendly plants and other projects that can make your home more attractive and pay off on your taxes when you sell.
