When the International Revenue Service (IRS) says that your tax refund has been processed, it means that at any moment you can get your refund cheque. You can use the Quick Access tax service to get information on your tax refund once it has been processed. Check http://canadaonline.about.com/od/personalincometax/a/taxrefund.htm.
If it is the same as out situation, the IRS was hit with billions in fraud claims, and our SS # was used. So essentially we ID "thefted" by the IRS. If you keep checking your status it will continually keep saying " in-process". Hope this isn't happening to YOU, but sounds familiar
