Have any Canadians received their Refunds from the IRS?

    Hi everyone,

    I understand that the IRS is having issues with the Casinos putting our ITN numbers on W2s which has prolonged the refund processes. I submitted my tax forms in January and am still awaiting my refund. In the past couple of years, I received my refund in ample time for my yearly Vegas May trip. I was just curious if any of you have recieved it before I communicate and spend hours on the phone trying to reach the IRS.

    Please advised and thank you in advance.

    A friend of mine got through after an hour wait yesterday. They said her money was sitting in the refunds account .looked ok but could possibly take 4-6 months before receiving it.She was advised they were really investigating the 1042s(w2gs) very carefully from the casinos.

    I normally have always got mine quickly. One of mine(from Red Rock Resort ) used an incorrect year (used 2013 even though win was in 2014) .I have repeatedly tried to get it adjusted and have yet to do so. Looks like I will be in for a REALLY long wait!

    Thanks SandyBeachBar. Did she recently submit? Or did she submit in January and now has to wait another 4-6 months before getting it. I submitted in January and am still waiting. I also got some more W2s in January 2015, so that means that I will only get my refund in August/September 2016?

    I think it was 4-6 months from time of when it was sent (jan 2/2015). Not sure what following timeframe may be for 2016.

    My Husband applied to get his money back after going through all the paper work they sent him a letter saying he owes them nothing and they owe him nothing. What a joke. Not impressed. They should not be taxing Canadians in the first place. Really frustrating. Its bad enough we get soaked by the exchange rate then the US government can' even be honest and give us our money back. Love Las Vegas not a fan of the american government.

    Perhaps it is because you are a Habs fan:)
