  • Did you owe any money to the federal government like for student loand you defaulted on or something like that sometimes they take your taxes if you have a judgement against you.

  • It may be a delay in information issue. Like the irs website updates 24/7 it never shuts down, but depending on your time zone your bank may already be closed. The amount showing on your account may have been electronically received before closing time, and the rest will show up in the morning. Is it a pending item, or is the money actually fully deposited and your missing a good portion? If its pending I'd wait and see what happens, if there's truly a large sum missing and everything has moved passed pending contact the IRS.

  • I got curious and searched my refund on the irs website, here's what I found, directly from their site, about your situation.

    "On the other hand, if you receive a refund for a smaller amount than you expected, you may cash the check, and, if it is determined that you should have received more, you will later receive a check for the difference. If you did not receive a notice and you have questions about the amount of your refund, wait two weeks after receiving the refund, then call 800-829-1040."

  • ~*LMAO*~... we got back state refund in days!!! I told my husband that since so many people are having issues with federal government, they must be going broke with all the bail outs!!! Hahahaha

    My husband litterally called IRS to see what the problem was... and he's trying to shush me while I was telling him to ask the lady if they are going broke.... Hahahaha

  • It could just be an error, they are sending millions of checks a day. People make mistakes and so do computers. Wait 2 weeks and see if the error is corrected, then call and ask. Mocking them solves nothing, and if the money is rightfully yours (you don't owe anything due to judgements) it'll get deposited eventually. The states are dealing with a significantly smaller number of people then the federal agency is, of course they're going to disburse funds quicker then the federal.

  • Like stated before if you defaulted on a loan (student loan) they will hold your taxes. If you owe on child support of if someone you filed with owes on these things they will take their money. If indeed it is a mistake double check with the website and/or call to be sure, then have a little patience.

  • The Irs is one federal company i would never get snippy with or they just might really look you over good.And an audit may follow.I'm serious.They have no sense of humor,nor do they appreciate any rudeness.There are so many different ways they can take and use your money if back taxes,default or child support ,even tickets of any kind you bet they will take it.
