Help! What does this mean? (tax related)

Posted by   + Show Post

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.

H & R block has a propensity for screw ups...


Quoting offrdngal:

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


Quoting MissTacoBell:

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



Quoting offrdngal:


 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.



Quoting NookBoookMom:



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,

 I've never had an issue with them.  Jackson Hewitt screwed up our taxes one year.

That's why I do mine myself. If I screw up I know whose fault it is lol.

It's not hard really, just follow the instructions on your forms.

 I prefer to do them myself, but this year we couldn't.  I might do them myself next year.

Hopefully we will get it straight. I'm almost positive that mine is about my kids though. I hope they send whatever they are gonna send soon. Knowing the irs I will probably get it on day 30 though. UGHH! Good luck!!!!

I don't think the IRS "knows" who get to claim the kids what years if there is a court order- it's the parents' responsibility to be honest. They will however get a red flag if you try to claim someone that the other parent has already claimed. In my personal situation, when ex & I separated years ago we agreed he claims 2 & I claim 2 & we kept claiming the same 2 every year. And every year I had to sign a form stating I would not try to claim them for the previous year, the current year, or the following year. Now that we are divorced it went into our papers that way so I don't have to sign that form anymore because I legally can not even try to claim them.

Did you ever figure out what it meant? Mine showed up with this today

 We haven't got the letter from the IRS yet, but I'm pretty sure that it has something to do with the EIC because he got all of his refund the other day except the EIC. This is his first year claiming our son.

Hmm.. interesting. We have claimed both or kids last year and have had no issues. We already got our home heating credit. Normally we got that last.
