I filed on 1/23 and was supposed to get my refund on the 9th at the latest according to the IRS website and Metabank but it just now shows as being processed. Normally I wouldn't care but I finally found the matching three amps I need and they are the only ones I have seen in a year. I called to inquire but of course it was simply 35 minutes wasted to find out the same thing the website told me....nothing other than it was being processed. She said to keep checking the website every monday until I get my refund.
I e-filed my income tax return on 02/01/2010 and it was accepted that day. We'll see if I get my refund tomorrow as predicted by the IRS charts.
ETA - My refund status:
"Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on February 12, 2010. If your refund is not credited to your account by February 17, 2010, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until February 17, 2010 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then."
You couldn't GIVE me another Volkswagen, let alone convince me to actually pay for another one.

I got my state back in 5 days but my estimated return date was last friday from turbotax, the 9th from metabank and this Friday from IRS. But know it says code 1301 and that it is have been recieved on the IRS website. I checked some tax forums and this happened to a lot of people last year when the peak of refunds was being processed and meant that there return had been there over so much time. I would love to get extra back but I doubt that will happen.
