    My refund is no longer showing on my mytax account and Illinois WMR now shows that my return has been processed and a date for my refund has not been provided yet. Normally just takes a few days for it to be disbursed from this point.

    @coiledvipers: I’m guessing they don’t have the money to refund them so they are waiting for the other people to start paying taxes to give us our money… the feds can process millions in a few hours and check for fraud but the state takes a month :\ good luck

    @lotsofluv Illinois probably trying to earn some intrest on our cash because they cannot afford what they took our of our paychecks.

    Nothing here yet, accepted on the 30th. According to them I should expect 28 days for returns to be processed and refunds to be sent out. This is due to the lengthy processed of protecting me from fraud.

    On the refund tool for Illinois, it states that they made a change to my return and sent a letter, and that if I have any questions after reading the letter to call. Anyone else gotten a similar message? I still haven’t received the letter, though they claim it was sent early last week. It’s weird because my federal was approved and fine, and I’ve never been sent letters before. I’m wondering what this means, did they reduce my state refund? Need more info? It’s frustrating the not knowing.

    I filed on the 25th of January.

    Yes, I copied and pasted the message from my email directly, not sure why it says 2016? I never received a text either, which was what I originally signed up for. Is there any way that I can post a screen shot here to show you? Last year, I owed because my employer screwed up my state taxes, so I never needed to track it last year.

    I received it, for sure. I paid my mortgage and took my family out to dinner last night.

    Here is the email, highlighted the entire page:

    Jessecka Are you sure you got it. What you posted was last year’s letter. At the end it says 2016, this year’s letter will say 2017. I have a feeling you are yanking our chain.

    The comptroller’s website is down for updates, so maybe some of you will get a date?

    “System Temporarily Offline

    The State of Illinois financial database is updated occasionally for processing. During this period of time, inquiries like this one are temporarily inaccessible. Please try again in a bit, or wait until normal business hours.

    We apologize for the inconvenience, and we thank you for your patience.”

    I have had the processed with no date message for a week now and finally received this email today at 11:03am (but no text even though I signed up for that as well):

    Received text stating ‘(IL Payment) The comptroller has processed your refund you should receive it within 5 business days.’

    Filled with JH 1/29, accepted 2/1.

    Still no update on IL WMR so maybe tomorrow??

    Fingers crossed.

    Do you have an account at https://mytax.illinois.gov that is where you can login and see everything and download old returns. Once the balance on there goes to zero the deposit is on the way.

    According to a post on the revenue.il.us site it says that refunds will be issued 4 weeks from the day the return was accepted. We still have a few weeks if that’s the case since they didn’t start accepting them until the 29th :(

    Yes got mine on February 16th last year a day early because of my deposit method, but my official deposit date was February 17th. I will expect nothing before Feb 23rd since they started a week later this year, and that is if they do 3 weeks like last year instead of the whole 4 weeks they say it takes to do the fraud checks. I would almost bet that I get the state and federal on the same day this year. Got federal on the 23rd last year.

    I also got my state refund a day or so sooner than the fed and this year is tricky becasuse who’s to say like the government they will have the money to pay us back considering how “broke” they are. I think thats a bunch of crap they took it with no problem but it sure seems like it is going to be a problem to pay back state and fed!

    Good to see some of you back. I was looking back at old comments. I’m in a state now that doesn’t take out state tax so that’ll be interesting next year.

    jcable2

    Don’t expect anything for 3 to 4 weeks from date accepted. Illinois already said they will hold for 4 weeks to prevent fraud. I was one of the first to get a refund last year. 3 weeks and 2 days exactly. Be sure to sign up with the Comptroller and they will text and email you when they get your refund.

    Last year it did take 3 weeks for the refunds to be issued but this year there is a budget so I am hoping we see it towards the end of next week. I have been checking my mytax account and I submitted the 30th, says processed the 31st and the credit is just sitting there. All depends on the comptroller now :\

    @denise I’m in the exact boat. I submitted and was accepted on 1/25/17 and was checking every week as it was still saying processing. I was told last week mine is being Manually reviewed and no time table for completion. I have looked every where for a answer on time frame and have come up empty. Still waiting. If you find out anything before me please let me know
