If you’re checking to find out where your refund is, you might see tax code 570. Here’s what it means and how to get your tax refund faster.
Is code 570 bad?
TC 570 is an IRS tax transcript freeze code that stops your tax refund from going out. It is one of many tax transcript codes that you might see if you check your IRS transcript after the status bars disappeared on Where’s My Refund.
There could be a problem with your tax refund, but a lot of times, the IRS just needs to get more information after initial processing. For example, your employer’s copy of your W-2 for reported wages might not be updated in the IRS records.
