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.

@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
@shamrock i happy for you….I’m still waiting for mine, hopefully tomorrow! You always get yours before me, I’m jealous lol.February 13, 2018 at 12:23 pm #4215501
@Rick I have the credits and haven’t gotten a DDD yet, but my friend received a text Friday night saying that her refund was issued 2/8/18 and she received her money in her account on Saturday morning. She had both the EIC and ACTC and is still currently waiting on PATH for her federal. She filed the 23rd, processed the 29th.February 13, 2018 at 11:36 am #4215431
Still no DD or update for me.. processed on the 23rd. Did you people that got DD this week have PATH for federal?
Don’t understand why AR takes so long now compared to previous years.February 13, 2018 at 11:07 am #4215372
I forgot to mention I filed of the 26th accepted on the 29thFebruary 13, 2018 at 10:12 am #4215297
I was finally able to log into my tax account and I can pull up the return. I still don’t have a deposit but It shows on TT that it was accepted and processed on 1/23 but by what they have it was done on 1/22. Crazy that I am still waiting for it considering it is obviously done or I would not have the positive credit to the account. I guess they are just waiting to move it out and send it to me. I will update you when I get a deposit.

AB, i’m still waiting also. filed 1/31, accepted 2/1. atap hasn’t updated, looks as though people are getting their text updates just before 8pm. i guess i’ll keep my fingers crossed for the next 11.5 hours LOL. do you know if there is a refund offset number for Arkansas?February 13, 2018 at 9:27 am #4215227
I’m still waiting, but it’s refreshing to see that other people have started getting their deposits! Fingers crossed mine comes sooner rather than later!February 13, 2018 at 7:20 am #4215091
Mine will be a check but it still shows a balance on atap so I’m guessing it hasn’t been releasedFebruary 13, 2018 at 5:25 am #4215011
My deposit dropped guys see you all next year on this dreadful PATH.February 12, 2018 at 9:35 pm #4214813
Update just got a text that a refund was issues 2/11. I’ll let you know what happens.February 12, 2018 at 7:48 pm #4214746
I just got a text saying my refund was sent 2/11/18. It says to allow 7-10 business days. Hopefully it will show up in my bank tomorrow’s.February 12, 2018 at 5:32 pm #4214606
I really think they just throwing out information. Like come on just tell us if we have to wait longer or they holding them for a certain time or whatever. My goshFebruary 12, 2018 at 5:27 pm #4214597
@Tashag yeah they are full of it.February 12, 2018 at 4:30 pm #4214545
@Lioness so I just called and the guy told me it was still processing. Omg!February 12, 2018 at 4:29 pm #4214544
I filed the 23rd processed the 24th, I called just now and the lady said you’ll receive your refund within the next two weeks. Like really. This is the 3rd week already. Smh.February 12, 2018 at 3:38 pm #4214450
@Lioness I called this morning the lady told me my refund was released on the 8th but somehow I don’t believe her. I’m going to call back and see if I get someone else to see if I get a different answer.February 12, 2018 at 3:17 pm #4214412February 12, 2018 at 9:08 am #4213884
No deposits this morning. That sucks!February 9, 2018 at 7:53 pm #4211875
My friend just got the text from ATAP saying her refund was issued yesterday! She then checked the website and it too had updated! I’d post a pic if I could lol. She filed the 23rd, processed the 29th, has both EIC and ACTCFebruary 9, 2018 at 6:44 pm #4211815
I think that’s something they tell people because we have someone in here that got deposit this morning with no notifications. I hope to see mines in the morning 😏 wishful thinking.February 9, 2018 at 6:36 pm #4211802
Filed Jan 19th processed on 23. Called and said it will take 3 weeks, so this Tuesday will be the 3rd week. So we will see! And it took 3 weeks last year, due to itentity theft, basically holding it a little longer. I also put my number to get notification when sent to the bank. So look to you not getting your state until 3 weeks after it’s processrd.February 9, 2018 at 6:19 pm #4211777
Everyone seem so patient and calm this year…I’m thinking its because its our 2nd go round with the PATH so we know what to expect now.February 9, 2018 at 9:24 am #4210902
Still nothing for me, or anyone else I know that’s already filed. LameFebruary 9, 2018 at 9:21 am #4210895
@inomniaparatus congrats, I was wondering if it would update or change thanks so much for the update.February 9, 2018 at 8:16 am #4210769
I have both EIC and ACTC. Hoping everyone sees theirs soon!February 9, 2018 at 8:03 am #4210745
@inomniaparatus Yay! Thank you for letting us know. I am pretty sure us with ACTC and EIC will be waiting a bit longer but any progress is good. Your the first person I have seen from Arkansas that has a confirmed deposit.February 9, 2018 at 7:15 am #4210697February 9, 2018 at 7:02 am #4210674
State taxes dropped overnight! No update on the sight or anything. Just appeared. Filed 1/26 and accepted 1/29. Good luck to all this morning and I’ll see you on the long PATH!February 7, 2018 at 11:37 am #4208557
I called the # on the page that says my refund has been processed but not sent, asked the lady there what this message meant as I had not ever seen it in previous years, she advised me that it started last year and that they won’t be issuing refunds till the 3rd or 4th week of February.February 7, 2018 at 9:22 am #4208307
Any updates for anyone yet?February 6, 2018 at 11:05 am #4207157
I noticed the link to sign up for email alerts this morning too. I think it’s new because I don’t recall that being an option before. I honestly think that AR is walking the “PATH” this year too cause they’re usually so fast. I just filed, so my wait hasn’t been long, but my sis has been waiting since the 23rd.February 6, 2018 at 8:46 am #4206931
Did you guys see where you can enter your email or phone number to receive a notice when your AR refund will be issued? Once you put in the information on the state inquiry page hit the “next” button at the bottom and it will take you to that screen. Mine was processed on the 29th but I still have nothing; however, I did receive my federal refund today. 😊 Good luck to all!February 5, 2018 at 7:14 pm #4206502
Although I see different states posting they received refund. Unfortnately I dont think we’re going to see any deposits until next week.February 5, 2018 at 2:36 am #4205761
@Lioness I am the same way. Not in a hurry to get it because it is already spent when it gets here on home repairs and car tags.February 4, 2018 at 8:02 pm #4205654
I some how feel more patient this year.February 3, 2018 at 11:18 pm #4205282
I don’t know if it means they are holding it till Mid February or not but I know last year it seemed to take longer. I got federal last year before state and that was the first time that had ever happened. I know in this very thread from last year I stated that for over a week I could see the positive balance sitting in my tax account because it was done and credited but not removed and paid until I would say two weeks after I saw it there. The stupid tracker was of no help last year either, it would tell me that they were done but when I called I was told they were not ready and about 10 other unrelated answers by some of the rudest people. I think last year was about 17 days total from filing to getting paid. Good luck to everyone this year, I just got the Path message on Federal today finally.February 3, 2018 at 12:56 pm #4204986February 3, 2018 at 12:31 pm #4204975
Your return was processed on 2/1/2018 5:46:55 PM but your refund has not been issued. Please allow additional time for your refund to be issued. Identity Theft has been a growing problem nationally and the Department is taking additional measures to ensure tax refunds are issued to the correct individuals. These additional measures may result in tax refunds not being issued as quickly as in past years.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY SAYING? Are they holding the state until mid February too?February 3, 2018 at 1:38 am #4204504
Both mine and the Boyfriends have been processed but both have this message:
