On irs.gov it states my refund has a code 1242, what does this mean?

1242 –Electronic return received more than 3 weeks ago; –E Freeze; in review, notice for additional information will be received.Should receive a letter from the IRS within 30 days requesting what additional info they need.

Personal experience:I got DDD of 23rd but roommate code 1242. Did some research and that means FREEZE received return more than 3 weeks ago and now need additional info which is proof of dependent EIC credit. He has claimed his 2 children for the last 3 years since birth and they have his last name. Always files Head of household because girlfriend doesnt work. Never had a problem before. Major delay. Extremely upset. Should receive a letter from the IRS within 30 days requestingwhat additional info they need. More than likely proof that he can claim the children.

You can contact the IRS for assistance.

How do I contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)?

As stated in an prior post in this thread the 1242 means they are going to need something from you like proof of a birth certificate on a dependent or foster care papers etc.. The IRS will send letter requesting what they want.

TurboTax cannot help - only you can provide the documents that they want.

The IRS does random audits and you were a lucky winner of one ... simply comply with the information requesteds ASAP since your return will be frozen until you do.

I didn’t receive my state tax return . It’s been over 21 days since the acceptance. I went to check the status of my refund, but it says it doesn’t exist.
