Help! What does this mean? (tax related)

When I checked my fiance's refund status this is what it said:

 Has anyone ever gotten this message?

Does anyone know what this could mean or why he could of gotten this message? He did claim my 2 kids and our 1 kids together, so I'm thinking it could be something to do with that.

Thanks!

Take Action.

 I don't think so. I mean we filed online with H & R block and all he had was 1 w-2 so I figured it would be simple.

If you get any papers in the mail, take them back to the preparer. If they messed up, it's their fault, not yours.

This happened to me one year. I mailed my forms and had forgotten to sign one of the pages. They sent me a form to sign, I mailed it back and received my refund a few weeks later

Thanks ladies! From what I'm reading online it could be a number of different things. The answer I'm seeing most has to do with claiming the kids. This is the first year that he claimed them, so I think that is what it could be.

yeah this year they are double checking everything and since this is the 1st year he is claiming them, it may have come up as a red flag, this year since we have the educational credit , and it will take us longer to get our refund back,

Is anyone else claiming your children?

 If he doesn't have custody of the kids, he must file a certain form, signed by the custodial parent, stating that custodial parent is not claiming the children for this year.  I forget which number form it is.  Go to the IRS website, you can find the form there.  If this is the issue, I'm sure they will send you a copy of the form.

I thought the IRS washed its hands of which parent claims in what year?

 No.  I never heard anything about it.  We just did our taxes, at H&R Block and the lady never said anything.
