Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
From what I've been able to find out, code 1121 usually means that there was a coding problem with the bank codes on the direct deposit attempt. That seems to make sense given what you've experienced. At this point it's caught up in the IRS processing system. It probably means there was a typo in the bank clearing code for the refund deposit. The IRS literally has thousands of these to follow-up on so there's really nothing else you can do except to keep checking WMR & hurry up & wait.
Wish I had better news, but you are the third one I've seen with this same issue and they all pretty much follow the same fact pattern.
Please remember to rate my response.
Thanks very much.
I had a response drafted but the question locked for some reason & my response disappeared.
The only other thing you can do is to contact the "Taxpayer Advocate".
Depending upon what's holding up the situation, they may be able to assist.
You need to tell me where you are located, what city & state and I can give you who to call.
They have the power to force the IRS to give them a straight answer as to exactly what is going on.
It may not be an answer you want to hear, but at least it won't be a run around.
I'll be gone until tomorrow afternoon, so I can further assist you at that time if you wish.
Not that I know about. The taxpayer Advocate is your best bet.
I will still keep the question open for you.
Do you have any additional follow-up questions?
If not, please remember to rate my response as that is the only way we receive credit for our work.
Thanks very much,
I received an IRS letter 5596 dated 8.6.15 see stating
