***** IMPORTANT NOTICE *****
After speaking with an IRS representative about some of my clients refund delays. The IRS has advice me that most of this returns have a system error which they are working on it now by adjusting some programming errors they have with all of the new changes with the recovery credit and other new changes. She asked tax payers to allow 10 weeks from the date their return was filed to allow time for them to process.
I hope this helps answer your questions on the delays, and you can always reach out to me if you have any questions.
