Refund Status Error on IRS2Go App
Based on the research, IRS error code 9001 is becoming a very common error code that many people are reporting on Where’s My Refund and the IRS2Go app. But what does IRS error code 9001 mean? According to the IRS, all it means is that the Where’s My Refund system or IRS2Go app was accessed by a secondary SSN on the return.
Several of the common themes we see with this are:
- A wife accessed the return, but a husband was primary filer
- The kids accessed the return, but the parents were primary filers
- Family is not communicating and telling the other person that they accessed it
- Typos – Typo on the return/ typo entered information on WMR

Common IRS Where’s My Refund Questions and Errors
Here are a few of common IRS Where’s My Refund questions and errors:
Tax Topic 151
Do you get the message “Tax Topic 151: Appeal Your Rights” when you log into Where’s My Refund? It means that you are getting a tax offset which is where the Department of Treasury is going to be taking your refund to pay for something you owe.
The most common reasons for obtaining a tax offset are unpaid taxes, unpaid child support payments, and offsets for Federal student loans in default. If you received Tax Topic 151 error code, the IRS cannot really assist you. They are going to send you a letter which explains why you will not be getting your return, or how much was taken. But, the best place to call is the Bureau of the Fiscal Service. Their customer service will explain the issue better. In addition, if your student loan is in default, you will need to rehabilitate your student loan to stop having your tax return taken.
Tax Topic 152
Tax Topic 152 means that you are getting a tax refund. The IRS has given guidelines this year that 90% of tax filers have to receive their refund within 21 days of filing. The IRS works weekends during tax season, so it is 21 days, not business days. But, if you mail your tax return, your 21 days of processing starts when the IRS gets your actual paper documents into the system. Thus, paper returns take up to 12 weeks or more to process.

Refund Status Results Delayed
Some filers see a new message in 2022 saying that their return processing has been delayed beyond the normal timeframe. This message is a system error. Specifically, it has not been 21 days yet for most filers, so nobody’s tax return is delayed yet. It seems that someone may have been working to program different error messages. And this flagged for the users over the first weekend of February. In fact, this appears similar to the IRS Code 9001 error code that plagued people a few years ago. If you are seeing this message and it has not been 21 days yet, do not need to worry.
