I thought I read somewhere that the first refunds would not go out until the first few days of March. I may be wrong but I thought I read this in a publication... Just my opinion. I believe the IRS used to print a chart that showed when the direct deposit would go out and when the paper checks would be mailed, but I think that was discontinued...just my opinion.
IRS is just telling people to wait till March so they won't be bothered with phone calls. Not that those are any problem, because they don't get answered anyway. Read far enough and they admit,
Why We Hold Your Refund
By law, we can’t issue your refund before February 15. This includes your entire refund, not just the part that’s related to the credit you claimed on your tax return.
I think you are right Bob. I also think that is why they stopped printing those refund charts years ago, because people were calling when they did not receive the refund according to those charts, but I may be wrong... Just my opinion.
