You were all set to receive your tax refund once your tax refund status said “Refund Approved”! It’s been over 21 days and you’re still waiting for your refund. So, you decided to check “Where’s My Refund?” again. Now, your refund status bar has disappeared or gone missing in action. You’re back to “still processing”! Now, what?
The most likely reason for your refund status bar to revert back to a “still processing” status is a potential problem with your tax return. Typically, the IRS has frozen your refund and it has been sent over to the IRS Error Resolution Department. Until action is taken, your tax return could remain in this frozen refund status for months before you receive any type of notification from the IRS.
