    They ARE on the ball lately and it seems it’s mostly due to the passports having the 10 year renewal rather than 5. Renewed mine a few months ago and passport office said that the offices are essentially half as busy now. If I were a betting girl I’d say you will get it back in time!

    The Surrey office assured me I will have it back Feb 23rd. Including my 3 certified passport copies so I can then RE-SUBMIT my renewal for my ITIN#. I think I've had my ITIN# for 20 years? Maybe 25? I sold a Mount Baker property years ago and needed an ITIN# to claim back a withholding amount. I never knew it would actually expire. But mine did Dec 31/17,,,So, before I can GET BACK my $5100 tax back for 2017, I have to have a renewed ITIN...Just been a hassle. And IRS has already rec'd my tax submission for 2017,,,just hope they hold on to it until I can re-send my ITIN renewal...Hey are you in town? I might...well maybe....just kinda itching to play a bit locally. I might hit up Hard Rock tomorrow...ya know...just for an hour or so....(yah right,,,last time I did that a month and half ago,..blew $2000),,,so I need to be a better player. Or just not go local and save the bankroll for my two trips coming up.

    Update for those that have filed 2017 returns. I checked irs refund page today and it shows that returned has been processed and approved with cheque being sent feb 26. So ended up being pretty much same timing as last year for me. I can only hope similar results for the rest of you. Again for reference my refund was <5k so unclear on if that helps or not.
    Will update once cheque arrives. Good luck everyone !

    That's crappy- sorry to hear that. so maybe by end of December for you then with June 15th being due date. I really wonder what the method to their madness is. My cheque should be in my mail box in a week or so for second consecutive year, and for you, you get screwed over for second consecutive year. Boo urns

    I'm changing the way I'm gambling in state this year.

    I won't go crazy in HL and play as much video poker and table as possible

    That makes sense- I'm mostly a vid poker player at dollar level except for the zesty session of $5 vp in HL bar tops, so my hand pays are few and far between unless a royal pops up (or I'm playing something volatile like DDB and the like..)

    Its a shame that tax authorities influence how and what you like to gamble on. I hope you clean up on the tables this year then!

    Well good news for me. My cheque arrived for 2017 filing. Basically exact same timing as last year. I must be flying under the radar and likely to stay that way. Heading to Mecca in a month so see what damage I can do.

    Taxes update from this Canadian, filed through RMS at the end of January and the IRS website indicates my 2016 refund is being sent this Friday, April 13. Nothing showing up for my 2017 (I filed both at the same time). The 2016 refund exceeds my 2017 refund but i had 3 slips for 2016 and only 1 but the win was over $3K so not sure if that is causing the hold up. Will post when I get the 2017....

    Essentially it seems the wait times are dramatically better than a year or two ago!

    I don't think there's a delay if your refund is less than 5k.

    It seems like 5k and above gets held till end of the year.

    I've changed the style I gamble in the US. Only got 1 HP of 2500 so far. That's $750 coming back next year lol

    I hope that is the case as my 2016 refund is $1,500 and 2017 is $1,000. I would love to have both back for my trip at the end of May. Fingers crossed!

    Ugghhh....a week ago on Apr 4th I received in the mail a SECOND rejection letter of my ITIN RENEWAL. I had done everything they requested from the first rejection (namely they will only accept a REAL Passport with promise to return it, OR a certified copy of my Passport by the issuing Country, Passport Canada.) At first I had only sent a lawyer certified copy which they no longer accept. the second item was the exemption #, which I thought I had filled out correctly....So on April 5th I called IRS (and there is no toll free from Canada)...It was only a 14 minute wait, so not as bad as another time was 38 minutes (but as I was in for 38 I wasn't about to hang up)..Got a good lady on the line. As I expressed my "WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?"...she had me explain it all again. She looked at my file and said, well this says to me your ITIN has been re-instated as of this morning April 5th, so you are good to go! She didn't know why I received the second rejection letter but we never pursued it. I have my ITIN back. I immediately went to Where's My Refund site, and nothing special on there. If I recall it said something like Still reviewing. I have just over the $5000 mark ($5125?)...so doubt nothing will happen till closer to end of year. I sure could use those US FUNDS for next week's Buy in at Bellagio...Dollar is killing my bankroll.

    Hi, I hope this gets resolved. This is the reason I used RMS as I do have a US SSN number and ITIN but it is many years old. While I know filling in the paperwork is not complex I had read about ITIN's expiring and was worried about this happening. Perhaps if you continue to have problems you could use RMS? I negotiated a discount with them and for next year (I had taxes withheld on a handpay in March this year) I am going to try to negotiate a flat fee with them as the level of effort is very minimal for them. Fingers crossed that you see the money soon as I agree the US exchange hurts!

    Thanks girl. I'm a bookkeeper so I know I can do my own and have done so for 6 years? I tried RMS the first year and although I was only getting like $1500 back that year they wanted 30% of it, so wtf?...Then I ran into one of my gambling buddies who did his own (uh,,,he was getting like $30,000 back and did his own every year) and he gave me his template and voila,,,got it all back every penny. My prob this year was my ITIN expiring, so that's held up the smooth return. HOWEVER,,,I did get an envelope from IRS today...a two pager,,explaining they have received my report, but need time to process. If I needed to send them any more letters, they gave me stubs to include with my info on it so they can access me. Hah. What I would like is a new ITIN# sheet. I'm sure I'll get my full refund back sometime this year.

    Just want to point out the obvious this ID is a scam. Left a voice mail telling me my tax refund is expiring or something.

    Beware [​IMG]

    Oh crap! 900? Interesting. I will check today online. I haven't checked it in a long time, but sure could use that US $ gambling fund in 3 weeks.
