Refund Delays

If you filed your income taxes early this year, but still haven't received your return, you're not alone. An increase in the number of people filing early has forced the IRS to slow down their operations.
According to Gene Nadeau With Liberty Tax Service in Wichita Falls, the IRS said a new system validation procedure is flagging more refunds than anticipated.
More filings getting flagged means the IRS must devote more resources to process returns, which slows down how fast people get their money.

"It's very frustrating from a professional standpoint," said Nadeau, "because we try very hard to get out customers the refunds when they expect them, and when things like this happen that are beyond your control, it's frustrating because you're bearing the brunt of the phone calls and the irateness."

Nadeau said only people who filed between January 17th and January 24th can expect a delay in their returns.

For people who filed their taxes after January 24th, Nadeau said their returns should be sent out on time.
