WHAT IS GOING ON?
Answer: This same thing happened to me. I should have gotten refund 1/30 then delayed to 2/3 then on 2/4 WMR system changed to 1301 code. I have called several times and gotten many different answers, however, finally this a.m. (2/11) I got to speak w/a supervisor who said that there was a mistake on my return but that it had been corrected and the return was now being put back into the system. He said to allow 1-2 wks to finish processing. Told me to check back next wk on WMR for update b ut he thinks I should get it DD 2/20. Hope he is right. good luck.
