According to sources, new filters at the IRS have caused over half of all refunds to be unexpectedly withheld nationwide. Sources indicate that approximately 60-70% of the refunds nationwide that were expected to be released by the IRS were not released by the IRS. This is a nationwide problem at the IRS. This problem effects every tax preparer across the country equally. Taxpayers who were expecting a refund the week of Janurary 25 & February 1, 2012, but did not receive one, should visit the Where's My Refund link at IRS.gov for more information on when the IRS will release their refund. We have been told that the affected refunds should experience a one week delay from when they were expected. We will post more information here if new information becomes available.
