Anyone else experiencing a "delay" with their refunds?

The IRS website suddenly says there is a "delay" with the refund we were expecting to get by tomorrow. We know everything was filed correctly, and everything was on schedule until today, so we're really confused. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

  • I just checked mine and I received mine. Because of the economy there have been a record number of people who have filed earlier than they normally do along with people who normally don't get refunds are now getting refunds because they have lost their jobs. Several people I have talked to that were suppose to get their refund last weekend said that on average it was a 3 day delay. You should get it by the 10th.

  • Thanks guys! Here's hoping it's here by the 10th. :) That's really when I need it, so if it comes by then I will be happy.

  • In one of the groups I am in I saw a similar post and it looks like most people are expecting delays. We just barely filed ours so we haven't personally experienced the delay yet.
