Checks and any processing issues will delay the refund longer.
In January, the IRS released a list of 13 audit campaigns designed to focus resources on areas of concern for the IRS examination teams.
However, once they are released and processed, the actual tax refund probably won’t show up until the end of February or early March.
The IRS announced that the new tax law requires your entire 2017 tax refund to be held until February 15 if you claim either of these tax credits: The entire refund will be held, not just the tax credits above.
The IRS offers an additional three years from the original deadline for that tax year to file and claim a tax refund.
They want you to blindly follow the instructions on the letters. This tax relief site, written by an experienced defender, will give you better information and tips about how to respond to letters and notices. Just Google the letter or form number and select the sites you want explanations from, including the link to the IRS web site. Even if you didn’t get that letter, the descriptions contain a sample of IRS letters & notices useful information that these letters contain. Include in the letter a statement that you disagree with the additional tax and the action you want taken, such as “I disagree with the additional tax assessment because I did everything correctly and I want you to remove the taxes.” Also state that if they don’t remove the taxes, you are requesting that they issue a notice of deficiency so you can file an appeal.
If no bar is displayed for a specific time it means that the service was down and the site was offline. Was a glich with our taxes due to an identity verification (accountant put old address on our tax form and caused a nightmare for us). Sometimes I get to account creation and just get a "couldn't create your account" message with no details and forms are messed up after that, have to start over.

Fix DNS Problems A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs.
Open DNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.
