Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello i'm Miguel, I did my taxes on March 2nd. The form from my employer gave me W-2. My tax maker switched it to form 1040. I have done my taxes for more than 13 years the same way with the form W-2. I never had a problem with my refund, except this year. This is what's going on, before this year, i had done my taxes with another person, but she started to charge me too much and i opted to go to a community service place to help me get them done. It's been 4 weeks, and i haven't recieved my refund. they told me how long it would take to come, yet it hasn't came. I returned witht them to ask what was going on because the years before, it took about 2 weeks at most to transfer in my bank account. They told me that for some reason, the IRS had detained them. I asked what's the reason and they said they couldn't obtain any information. I have all the papers they gave me. What can I do to verify if there's really a problem. Thank-you.
