IRS Still Experiencing Delays In Sending Tax Refunds

Tax preparers said Thursday that the Internal Revenue Service is continuing to have delays in sending federal tax refunds this year, with hundreds of South Floridians complaining they still haven't gotten their check.

"Our phone is ringing off the hook with people saying they should have their refund by now," said Mark Daly, franchise owner of several Jackson-Hewitt Tax Service outlets in South Florida.

"There's no rhyme or reason why some returns are being quickly processed and others not," Daly added. "We've had hundreds and hundreds of complaints."

"The IRS is experiencing delays this year in sending refunds," said H&R spokesman Gene King in a statement sent Thursday to the Sun Sentinel. "Based on current IRS guidance, most refunds are now issued from the IRS in 10 to 21 days."

I can't imagine the problem here. With only 21,000 changes to the laws and 380,000 rules already in place, and having to hire 10,000 new workers to decipher all the new tax rules, I'm surprised that we can't have our refunds in an instant! Can you?

I don't know why this isn't being publicized more. The IRS puts out this ' refund cycle chart' so.they should let people know they can't keep up. My return was accepted on 2/2 so should have been deposited by 2/17. Still nothing and now they are saying 3/6. Have never had a problem before.

I know, I've had my state refund since 2/8 via direct deposit. Still waiting on FED deposit. 21 days my butt!
