It's a special card that you pick up in The Land of Oz. If you get it from there you will have better luck getting funds loaded onto it ;)

Yes it's unfair to hav to wait for or refunds, especially when we look forward to receiving it on the day we r told. But like she said whats the use of BITCHN about it. It's not gonna bring it any time sooner. So y stress ur self out? Trust & belive I really need this money, bills r going off but what can u do but wait. So I'm gonna keep calln my card til it says I hav $8347.00 available. Thanks for the laughs.

I work for Block and in my office we are more than tired of making excuses for the IRS. Our home office is even telling us NOT to tell clients that these delays are the fault of the IRS. Instead, we're to tell clients, over and over, that "the IRS is taking add'l time to review returns and some refunds are being *impacted*". Well, when you field as many calls as we have, the word "impacted" ceases to get you very far after the 3rd client or so.

Starting today we began telling clients we are not entirely sure of when their money will be rec'd due to the chaos surrounding the new anti-fraud procedures. Be sure and sign up for the free texts and emails...and if they want total assurance, they should check the IRS "Where's my refund?" tool daily until an answer shows...and keep in mind the IRS reserves the right to make even themselves a liar.

Yea Jen, you should be scared, especially if you actually have some assets.
The Gov. wants thier cut of what you make, and they will get it one way or the other, freedon is not free, and neither is what ever the hell we have going on in this country.
And whats the deal with these low lifes that work just long enough to draw unemployment and then get back an enormous amount of money?
There needs to be fruad dector software at the IRS, Im tired of hearing about these huge tax checks that these low lifes get back, If you get assistance of any kind from the Gov. they should remove that from your tax check before you get it.

The IRS is holding all refunds until Congress approves another dept ceiling limit. Right now they are balking at the idea because Obama had a dept ceiling increase 5 months ago, so politics are holding up the checks.
So how long will it be until i get my money?

You don't seriously believ that either of them are from the IRS do you? They wouldn't have jobs after those posts. Used to have a friend that worked for them. They don't give a lot of second chances to employees that can't behave.
