Share your experience with filing your Arkansas Tax Return and tax refund progress with others. If you have state information this is a great place to post.

The deposit was in my account this morning for state and federal both. Thank goodness! It’s been very nice to have others to discuss our situations with. I appreciate it! Good luck and I hope you get that text soon!!!February 22, 2018 at 8:07 am #4229166
@Lioness Yeah same, no state for me either!February 22, 2018 at 7:04 am #4229044
Got my federal….don’t have state.February 21, 2018 at 10:51 pm #4228347
@AB congrats let us know when you get it, were still waiting but that gives some hope.February 21, 2018 at 7:07 pm #4228020
Just got my text saying my refund was issued 2/20 and allow 7-10 days to receive. Finally!!!February 21, 2018 at 5:24 pm #4227814
Dang guys my cousin hasn’t received hers yet either. I don’t know whats going on but this is insane. I’ll be back to check on you guys tomorrow maybe you will have double deposits, that would be great.February 21, 2018 at 10:20 am #4226950
I know I called just a few mins ago and was told three to four weeks. I explained that 4 weeks was up for me yesterday as I filed and was accepted the 22nd of January. I agree with you both I never feel relived until it is all done.
I can’t complain at least I will have some cash to do some birthday stuff this weekend.February 21, 2018 at 10:08 am #4226901
My federal will be there tomorrow too, but I’m with you. I want both and I want to be done with taxes for the year lol!!!!!! guess i’ll wait another couple of days before I call and harass them.February 21, 2018 at 9:54 am #4226852
I’m suppose to receive my federal tomorrow but I’m not going to be satisfied until I have received both!February 21, 2018 at 9:51 am #4226846
I talked to a lady that said that they plan to release majority of the funds this week and to keep checking back. I told her that mine had been processed since the 1st , how long exactly is the wait? She said typically 3 to 4 weeks…….ughhhhh this is my 4th week where’s my money?February 21, 2018 at 8:33 am #4226693
I messaged yesterday and was told we are on the last of the security check and check back in a week or so. I totally don’t understand because our information hasn’t changed in 15 plus years!!February 21, 2018 at 7:57 am #4226602
@Lioness I’m on the verge of calling myself! Trying to be patient and not though lol. Keep me posted on what you find out!February 21, 2018 at 7:41 am #4226564
Ok …something is wrong! I still don’t have anything, I’ve been trying to stay calm but I’m calling!February 20, 2018 at 7:46 pm #4225815
No magic message yet…..fingers crossed thoughFebruary 20, 2018 at 11:43 am #4225162
Nothing for me today yet either, I’m holding out hope for this evening since most people I know that got the text got it in the evening. My bank doesn’t show federal but then again, it never shows pending anything. it will just be in the bank the day they receive it and will say pending but will let me spend it still lol.February 20, 2018 at 11:07 am #4225090
Nothing today so far but it is still early. I can see my federal pending in my bank but of course they will hold it till like 2am on the 22nd.
I am more confused than worried, I know they are done with the darn thing because I owed the state 36 bucks and my return was for 414 and when I log into the ATP I see a positive balance of 378. Meaning they already even took the offset off the total. I figured they would hold them until the 15th like federal was doing, however I have seen friends and family with the same credits who filed after me already spent theirs lol.
I mean it is not like I am scared that I am not going to get it, I just like to monitor the process to make sure if I need to take action I can in a timely manner.February 19, 2018 at 10:10 pm #4224577
It’ll probably be Wednesday when we see our stateFebruary 19, 2018 at 12:15 pm #4224158
I’d be less impatient if they’d just give me a date… It’s the unknown, that bothers me. but we know they won’t be issuing any today. so guess we’ll see what tomorrow holds.February 19, 2018 at 11:33 am #4224129
I seriously don’t see how it would help, seems to be doing more harm than helping. I can imagine that it has increased the already high call volume resulting in more hours and more staff.February 18, 2018 at 8:46 pm #4223795
I’m wondering if this new tax law is actually helping them catch people or giving them more time to play with our money? I mean, have they caught anyone yet?February 18, 2018 at 11:50 am #4223519
I’m not patient. LolFebruary 17, 2018 at 8:55 pm #4223116
@sunriselops Honestly I don’t think they update on weekends, we all know how cheap Arkansas can be. However I am not 100% on that.February 17, 2018 at 8:52 pm #4223113
Looks like we won’t be seeing anything now until after the weekend and Holiday. Oh well, here is to holding out for next week. I will start calling if I don’t update next week because I will be at 4 weeks on the 20th. I feel oddly patient this year…February 17, 2018 at 4:01 pm #4222885
DDD for 22nd on federal also….February 17, 2018 at 3:48 pm #4222871
Does anyone know when they update the Where’s my refund? Do they update on the weekends?February 17, 2018 at 1:23 pm #4222685
Got a DDD for the 22nd as well for federal, so that’s good news. Sucks that AR is taking so long though.February 17, 2018 at 9:01 am #4222299
Nothing. Did get federal DDD of the 22nd also, so that’s a plusFebruary 17, 2018 at 8:15 am #4222209
nothing this morning changed for me either, what did they do process a few and then take a vacation?
On the other hand I got my federal DDD this morning in the update as expected for 2/22.February 17, 2018 at 7:42 am #4222142
Nothing nothing NOTHINGFebruary 16, 2018 at 8:56 pm #4221346
I give up. 😑 No magical text tonight like I was so hoping.February 16, 2018 at 3:10 pm #4220783
@Lioness Nothing today either. I just checked mine and the boyfriend checked his and the balance is still sitting there. The only reason I use that as a guide is I have always seen the balance and then it will be zeroed out and usually the following day I get the deposit or a day or so later. I been pretty much getting up and checking and then checking before I go to bed. Trying to get an idea of what to expect each year and yanno it will work for a few years and then the system changes and we have to figure out the new formula all over again lol.
I have mine going direct deposit and there is nothing in future view (I can see my pay checks 4 days ahead with it) and We will have a bit longer wait on the boyfriends because his will be paper check as he had fees deducted with TT and they don’t allow DD when you do that with AR state returns.
@sunriselops It does seem to be how it has went for many of us here. However I have seen others get theirs in about two weeks but my three weeks was the 12th as mine says it was finished the 22nd of Jan.
As far as Federal goes I expect a update with a DDD tonight after midnight when the system updates because the path message was gone as of last nights update and replaced with the amount back and went back to the processing message. I just can’t view transcripts because I use prepaid cell and checking so no credit for me.February 16, 2018 at 3:06 pm #4220780
Nothing for me todayFebruary 16, 2018 at 2:42 pm #4220771
@sunriselops YesFebruary 16, 2018 at 1:19 pm #4220668
I filed and accepted 23rd. Had the processed on 24th message since then and still today. This morning DD hit my account.February 16, 2018 at 10:40 am #4220495
I just called the state and they said it could take 3 to 4 weeks after your processing date to get your refund. Has that been true for everyone?February 16, 2018 at 8:33 am #4220186
@lioness that’s a big negative for me. And it says I’ve exceeded maximum attempts to login, which is annoying because I have only tried once… But no money in my bank either, dang it!!!!!February 16, 2018 at 8:23 am #4220164February 15, 2018 at 2:23 pm #4218799
@AB https://atap.arkansas.gov/_/ and you create a login and can see your actual tax account.February 15, 2018 at 10:18 am #4218098
@cgdesilva where are you looking at “tax accounts” that show a positive balance?February 15, 2018 at 10:13 am #4218086
This is for sure the 2nd year that I have waited like this and it is why I am assuming the Path thing has a bit to do with it. Prior to two years ago I would file around the last week of Jan-first week of Feb and always had state by Feb 5th. I would never see a positive balance in my tax account either, as soon as they finished the return it was on its way to my account.
You would figure that as the years went on the system would get better not worse as far as speed/accuracy/fraud detection goes but I guess not. I’m not in dire need of the funds but my Birthday is the 25th and I would like to go out like I just won a $500 scratch off lol.
@AB Lmao JG Wentworth is probably on retainer for the IRS, because when we owe them that statement surely applies.February 15, 2018 at 8:31 am #4217939
@rick I believe last year it said my return was processed on such and such date and please allow 5-7 days for direct deposit to show up. It was much faster. This is the first year I’ve waited for state like this.February 15, 2018 at 8:24 am #4217932
Nothing for me either. :(
Last year I had a check so I think I got it way later, AFTER my federal finally came on the 22nd.
Did you guys have DD last year?February 15, 2018 at 8:14 am #4217910
Yet again, nothing for me either. It’s my money and I need it now…Will JG Wentworth take on the IRS? LOL. As for federal, I’m also a weekly, so hoping I see a DDD on Saturday morning.February 15, 2018 at 8:07 am #4217896
Yet again…..nothing! This sucks!February 15, 2018 at 1:13 am #4217616
My Brother in law, who filed weeks after me and my boyfriend got his today. No warning or text even though he signed up for them. He had No EIC or ACTC. Mine has been sitting in my tax account from the 22nd of Jan and the boyfriend’s has been on his as a positive balance on his tax account from the 26th. I am just going to take that as a sign that everything is fine and we are both just waiting on a deposit.
As far as federal goes we have both been weeklies for years. I assume we will get a deposit date on the 17th as that will be the first Saturday after the 15th.February 14, 2018 at 10:33 pm #4217517
I’m still waiting….i Havent Got An text update eitherFebruary 14, 2018 at 12:24 pm #4216891
@AB no luck today maybe tomorrow :(February 14, 2018 at 8:08 am #4216513
Still nothing for me. Anyone else have better luck?February 13, 2018 at 1:21 pm #4215605
@Lioness I had mines direct deposited this time maybe that made a difference.February 13, 2018 at 12:24 pm #4215504
