The last week of September I called the IRS to see what was going on with my refund. The guy told me they just reposted it on August 23. I was suppose to get it in September but instead I got a letter them, a CP53A form so I called and he said I had 4 weeks left.. 4 weeks go by and I called again because that was my 10 weeks, he told me it was on hold and they gonna call me in 30 days. He put in a request to have it released.. Please tell something because I am confused from what my brother told me.. THIS IS IMPORTANT SO NO STUPID MEAN ANSWERS

Best Answer:

Andy L: No. You are not being audited.
Taxes are normally filed in February electronically, as online or by software, and refunds received by direct deposit at some point within a few weeks.
To have something going on in the summer months says something went very wrong along the way.
The CP53A is just another error that originated from you.
It means they tried to direct deposit, and the deposit was refused.
Your account numbering was either wrong, or the account was closed.

Anything requiring IRS physical people to manage goes in a big backlog stack.
Normally, the fix of direct deposit fail is you to telephone and eventually get a check mailed to you.
"reposted" is another word for re-electronic deposit of something that failed the first time.

The problem here is probably in that nobody you know has any clue about how taxes are filed nor how systems and government works. Anything outside of standard operating procedures becomes a crawl.

When a refund of mine went on hold, I worked through the telephone and people transfers to get it released by paper check. It takes a telephone that does not run out of battery or charges by the minute because it would take at least 45 minutes to an hour to fix.

You have not stated all of the details of what went on, but you either wait it out, or telephone the IRS and wrk through the people transfers until somebody who knows what is happening can kick loose your refund as a paper check mailed to you.

Most probable errors – a very late filing of taxes that made yours an exception to begin with on a slow path followed by you providing wrong account information, or closing an account before getting the money.

No audit – just one case in a stack of hundreds or thousands to deal with that have a variety of errors that blocked automatic computer handling.

Other answer:

Andy L:
The letter number is no help in giving an answer. But the IRS has a time limit to release refunds otherwise they accrue interest which is good for you. You most likely made an error on your return and once fixed your refund will be mailed. Not an audit. Do not send another tax return unless they ask for one otherwise it will further delay your refund.

You must have screwed something up when you filed. That letter means your bank declined the deposit. Maybe you had the wrong bank info. or closed your account. Now it can easily take 8-10 weeks for a check.

Probably not, but how would we know? More likely it's just government bureaucracy and inefficiency.

P.S. It's "supposed" to, not "suppose" to.
