1) There are (literally) BILLIONS of dollars in unclaimed refund money available from the IRS from 2009 returns. Here’s the catch: You must claim it by April 15th, 2013.

How do you do that? Have us take a look at your return, and file an amendment if we find something which needs changing, updating, etc. There are all kinds of reasons why this might be — suffice it to say, “nothing ventured, nothing gained”.
 
Or, alternatively, there are people who simply didn’t FILE a return, but just trusted that the taxes withheld from paychecks was correct. Oops — that’s where the IRS gets the billions figure, because there are so many unclaimed refunds due to unfiled returns.
 
Either way, we can help (and routinely do). Call us: 847-243-3600

2) The IRS is reporting problems with the “Where’s My Refund” tool: https://www.irs.gov/Refunds. Because of filing delays, there has been a surge in use of it. I guess their servers weren’t expecting people to, you know, use it.

3) And speaking of filing delays, this week, we’re able to file some returns we’ve had to sit on. If you had to use one of the forms on this page (https://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/List-of-IRS-forms-that-1040-filers-can-begin-filing-in-late-February-or-into-March-2013), then we’ve been waiting on notification that we can file for you. As of this writing on Monday morning the 4th, we JUST got word that all forms and processes are updated and every kind of return can now be handled by their systems.
