Where's My Refund
A number of taxpayers are having difficulty pinning down the status of their refund. The "Where's My Refund?" tool, in some cases, shows code 1121 after initially showing a refund date.
The IRS says that they are aware of the 1121 code issue and advised taxpayers to "continue checking 'Where's My Refund' for an update. If we need more information to process their return, we will contact them- usually by mail." The IRS stressed that this does not mean that taxpayers are being audited.
Some of the problems might be the result of the IRS tightening fraud controls around the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The IRS has indicated that "some refunds take longer because of other factors, including IRS work to prevent refund fraud and identity theft."
The IRS also says that "as part of our effort to prevent improper payments some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons, such as when a return includes errors, is incomplete, or needs further review." That's to be expected this tax season as Congress increased pressure on the agency to collect more tax revenue and issue fewer fraudulent refunds.
