IRS accepted thousands of 2013 tax returns on January 24th 2014

The Internal Revenue Service begun accepting returns January 24th, 2014.

We have received hundreds of reports that the I.R.S. has been accepting tax returns before January 31st, 2014. It seems that they have started accepting select few income tax returns on January 24th 2014. We contacted the I.R.S. on that day and were told that to help with the case load, they have accepted some returns early. They plan is to accept returns all next week that meet very strict rules. We have adjusted our 2014 IRS E-File Cycle Chart to match with the reports that we have received.

Please comment on here when you were accepted, so that we can keep see if they do a pay out on January 29th. This would be in line with 2012 and 2011 tax returns.

From Hot Springs Tax Services: “We have had several clients who filed within the last two weeks have their Federal Tax Returns accepted by the I.R.S. We have received news from the IRS that first payout date will be February 5th still. The early acceptance just means that they will process it before returns that come in a later date. Just a reminder, there are no guarantees when it comes to the I.R.S. We also have had several reports of people receiving their 2013 state income tax return in. This has come from several states. We have had two of our clients report receiving theirs in Arkansas.”

From the I.R.S. Where’s My Refund website:

“We have received your tax return and it is being processed.

You should get your refund within 21 days from the date we received your tax return.”

  1. They accepted and began processing my return yesterday, Jan 28. I submitted it through e-file a little after midnight Jan 28 so it was very quick. The status right now is that it's being processed.

  2. My return was filed jan 11 an the irs accepted it jan 24 so hopefully today or tomorrow I should get my refund I'm in houston, texas hope it helps.

  3. Thank God I filed early. Started the process on Jan 24th, but got rejected. Found my error and what I thought was another, but got rejected a second time, called the IRS and found out someone had been using my info to illegally file in another state in 2011 &2012, in the two years I didn't file while on disability. Thankfully it was fixed with the IRS and I resubmitted yesterday and was immediately accepted!!!

  4. Does your WAR still say accepted? Or has it gone to the 2nd stage? If it hasn't your probably not getting your money this week. I wouldn't think any way. I've read posts c and more posts Noone had there's gone to the 2nd stage.

  5. well i got accepted on 1/28 says return accepted on wmr site. but last year i was accepted early on 1/25/13 and it said my estimated payout date was 2/4/13 but i got it direct deposit on the 31st of january so maybe we will all get it before the 5th kepping fingers crossed!!
