Did not recieve refund


It was stated that my refund was direct deposited in to my account Feb 23, 2017. I called my bank and they had no transactions from Feb - now. I called the automated service and the H&R block phone service stated that it was in process and would take 3 -5 days to complete. I need to know what is going on and why it is taking so long to get my refund.

Re: Did not recieve refund

Hi carlos99508,



Welcome to the H&R Block community.


Have you called support at 1-800-HRBLOCK?  The agents there are the only people who have the necessary access to find out what's going on.  We are all volunteers at the community level including those of us who otherwise work for H&R Block.


One possibility is that if you had fees coming out of your refund the bank may have taken your refund for that.  Another possibility is that the IRS took it to pay down a past debt that you have.  A third possibility is that there was just a mix-up within H&R Block, in which case this should be cleared up soon, at least I would think.  The only other possibility that I can think of is that there was an issue with direct deposit, in which case you would have automatically been sent you a paper check.



If you have any other questions I'll be glad to help.

Re: Did not recieve refund

I too have not received my Federal Refund from 2016. I have tried contacting my H&R Block Pro but they have not gotten back to me. If there is something "wrong" with my refund, wouldn't my Pro have seen that and helped me to fix it?? IRS continues to blew me off and tell me they are processing. Back in September, I actually RESENT everything to the IRS via mail (hard copy) with a note that I was still waiting. Again.. they never got back to me.
