    I filed late. And I have filed every year like as soon as I can get my win/loss statements. I've been bad. I did check the IRS website finally today and said still being processed. I'm still dealing with my cat who just wants to fight me (my son was home) as I've been away for 4 nights at the Bellagio $500 buy in and got home late last night. What an idiot for filing so late. I need that 7g before my next buy in, as I totally sucked this past weekend.

    You mailed it March 29th and already got your cheque- did I read that right?!?

    I'm super late in filing due to not getting my win/loss until really late, is the turn around time that quick this year?!? Going to try and get mine out tomorrow!

    Update - checked the IRS website today and my refund is approved and is expected to be mailed next week. Of note, I did not complete Schedule OI and I did not have my ITIN number on my tax slips. I do however have a SSN number as I used to work in the US. Now I have more money for my birthday trip in June!

    I am so envious. I have close to 7 coming back,,,or was it just 6? I can't remember,,,and I just checked yesterday and they were still mulling it over. UNDER A MONTH? ...I need that money for my July trip,,as I've just bottomed out in my gambling funds for Monday(Apr 29) for 3 nights. Was down 3 weeks ago I guess,,,and blew a bit of my wins from February at Aria..

    You may have to wait 6 months because the refund is quite large


    I'm getting the same old 6 months wait message from them again this year due to the amount, filed mine in January.

    I got mine approved at the end of July last year, hoping the same this year or sooner. [​IMG]

    That sucks that it takes so long to get larger amounts back. I mailed my return March 18th and my check was mailed May 3, so roughly two months for $1400 back. Not terrible plus I can now use the money on my birthday trip at the end of this month...fingers crossed that nothing happens with the delivery through the mail!

    I have gotten this message in the mail three times now,,actually only two, as they sent two duplicate messages in the same envelope. Ughh...The letter says You don't have to do anything at this time...and on and on.

    Hey great forum! Congrats on getting approved so quickly with a high amount!
    This is my second year filing (both years at very high amounts). Was a nightmare getting return last year but definitely learned a lot about the process.
    I also hired an accountant from the US to properly file it then sent in by overnight delivery mail on March 1.

    Did you also receive the 6 month letter 5887C in the mail? Or did you only get the 6 month update online?
    My online updated to 6 months back on March 23, then I received the letter in mail dated April 15.

    I wonder if there's a specific time frame they're following this year once return is approved. I call in and they told me my return was processed April 8 and to just keep waiting.
    If you received the letter in mail as well, do you mind sharing the date on it? Thanks so much.

    Yah I also received a letter but don't remember when. It doesn't really matter. It basically stating you will get your refund by 6 months from tax deadline.

    I called IRS this last week. I don't consider my 6 coming back a high return? (well, $5917 is close enough). She just said if you have received the letter, follow the instructions in the letter that you received. (twice). Letter says same thing, it could take up to 6 months yada yada. Just wait for it she said. I've only got 7 coming back so far for 2019 and 3 more trips to go. I still don't consider 7 a high return? However, I was bad this year and didn't file until early March, which I usually file JAN 2ND...So I will file Jan 2 next year and yah I do Express it there. Good luck on your return. (I thought I had 7 coming back for 2018, but that's so far this year 2019. Sorry for the error).

    If you filed early March, yours probably got received a week or two after mine. I'll post when I receive any updates and maybe that will give you an indication of when to expect yours. I don't think the amount makes a difference, really comes down to accuracy of return and time submitted etc.
    My return is extremely high so we will see if it takes longer to receive assuming no processing issues.

    BTW I also received two copies of the 6 month letter. Not sure why they send two identical copies together in same envelope, I'm assuming that's the same for everyone. For mailing I drive to the states and send same day or overnight registered mail from within the states. Also, you can actually e-file a 1040nr. The catch it your tax withheld cannot be equal to or greater than you total income.

    Here's the final update on ITIN renewal at the IRS office in downtown Las Vegas:

    My ITIN expired Jan 1, 2019.

    There happens to be an IRS office walking distance from Main Street Station (just the other side of the railroad tracks).

    You have to make an appointment in advance. The number given for this is: 844-545-5640 - this number is for all IRS offices, though.

    That number can't be reached from Canada.

    The Vegas office number is: 702-868-5005 - all you get is a recording telling me to call the other number.

    Next option, the International direct number: 267-941-1000
    https://www.irs.gov/help/contact-my-local-office-internationally

    In the end, I used my gmail account to phone the toll free number and it works! There is a little button down there on the left hand side that looks like a phone. Yeah, that's the one.

    ITIN renewals in Vegas are done on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    When you call for an appointment, you'll need:
    Your name
    Your expired/expiring ITIN

    We got appointments to coincide with our March trip. Prior to leaving, we prepared all the forms we'd need for ITIN renewal.

    Our passports were 'borrowed' for about 15 minutes and returned to us.

    Fast forward until mid-June and we have letters saying our ITINs are renewed. Woot!

    We didn't get new little cards like we originally did, but the number is the same as before so we are good to go.

    Hope this helps some of my Canuck brothers and sisters. Now go get some jackpots!

    I sent a 2017 return in on May 15th of this year. 2800 coming back. Finally today I checked the IRS website and it says check is being mailed today. I go to Vegas on July 28th so hoping it arrives quickly!

    Hi Everyone. I am a newbie to the handpays, got my first one this year. I am going to apply for an ITIN. I was wondering if most people submitted Form W-7 by mail with proper documentation or is it better to make an appointment and go in person. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
