    Has anyone filed in the last couple weeks and gotten their refund?

    My sons gf filed on 04/17/17 and hers has been processed and updated. We filed a day later and are still waiting. Ours and hers both were pretty straight forward and simple.

    @kmillersharkey:

    Since you filed in January did you claim EITC? Just curious because I claimed EITC and filed on January 24th. I have American Express Serve for my direct deposit. I know some state refunds were sent out due to not having any EITC.

    Yes I feel you very much. I filed back on January 24th and since then it’s been saying 8 weeks then in Feb. it said allow at least 2 wks. then it went back to 8 wks. I even tried calling them a couple of times and one rep. said allow 8 wks. now this was last week and so I asked him so around the 24th of March and he said if you have not received anything by then to check back. This is getting to sound a little shady how much more identity protection do they need to go through does not make since.

    I filed the 19th of January still no update or no refund their 8 weeks are up Wtf???

    If that is the case then seems like for me 60 from January 24 would be correct if counting weekend days. But still falls in that March timeframe. Maybe something will update next week. Frustrating.

    Well, I called the Iowa DOT yesterday. After a 2 hour wait on hold (really!) I finally spoke to a man who said the refunds were delayed for about 60 days.

    I also asked him about the wording on the IDOT website mentioned in my post above:

    “We have received your return. It is being reviewed. If additional information is needed, you will receive a letter from us. Returns filed electronically are typically resolved within 60 days of the date below. Returns filed on paper should be resolved within 3 to 6 months from the date below.”

    I was concerned that the words ‘reviewed’ and ‘resolved’ (instead of ‘processed’) indicated there was something wrong with my return. The fellow I spoke to assured me that was not the case.

    I filed on January 23 and it was received on January 24. Alot of people from Iowa are in the same boat. Only when I check mine refund status for Iowa it states “We have received your return. Please allow an additional 8 weeks to complete processing of your return.
    REFUND DETAILS
    RETURN RECEIPT DATE 1/24/2017”
    It has been showing this since I filed. But back in February it went from allow 2 weeks then back to this message above. Now I have spoken to a couple of representatives with a long time wait. And he stated to allow 8 wks. which aware of and I stated so around the 24th would be 8 wks. for me from that date. And also I have been reading on different websites where it says Iowa will not be releasing refunds until early March here it is early March and still no signs. If I do not see any change by next week I am calling again. This is nuts. I received my federal back on February 20.

    Hey, Everyone –

    I filed electronically on March 1. I got my Federal refund direct deposited into my bank on March 7.

    I still haven’t got my Iowa refund. When I checked the Iowa Dept of Revenue site, I got this message:

    “We have received your return. It is being reviewed. If additional information is needed, you will receive a letter from us. Returns filed electronically are typically resolved within 60 days of the date below. Returns filed on paper should be resolved within 3 to 6 months from the date below.”

    Has anyone else got this message? I’m concerned that they said my return is being ‘reviewed’ rather than processed, and that it is being ‘resolved’. Also that time frame seems excessive.

    Do I need to be worried that there is a problem and they are going to audit me or is it just a standard message?

    @ Kay I called them and asked them about updates for our state taxes and the lady I spoke to on the phone had the nerve to tell me that their website does NOT state the refunds will be issued early march! After arguing with her for about 5 min I got so mad I just hung up! I wish they would just release our refunds.

    I know I am waiting also, have not seen very many people post about Iowa refund. This is pretty much early March. I know 8 wks. for me will be the week of the 24th. I filed back on 1/24.

    I still have not received my refund and I’m getting very frustrated! On the website it clearly states that anyone that claimed the EITC will receive their refund Early March! So where’s our money it’s all b.s.

    Just a followup with anyone here it is the second week of March and I heard that state refunds will be issued early March. Has anyone heard any other updates or changes? Anyone still waiting for theirs?

    #4189380 Reply

    8 weeks!

    Yeah, 8 weeks here also. I have no EIC or any of that stuff. I’m tweaking my with holding for next year. I about got it right this year so at least my refund is pretty small.

    Anyone from Iowa still waiting on state refund. Filed back in January accepted 1/24. Still saying allow 8 wks. to process. Went from 2 weeks last month to back to 8 wks. I spoke with someone this morning he just said allow at least 8 wks. So I stated to keep checking the wheres my refund link on Iowa dept. of revenue site around the 24th that would be 8 wks from my date. Anyone else spoke to someone and getting any where in the same boat. I am definitely aware of this EIC thing as well with it.

    I sent in a paper return to the State IRS and Federal IRS, The paper return was accepted by State the day after I sent it in. I was in the “please allow 3-6 months” to process paper returns until today, now it states from Iowa “We have received your return. Please allow an additional 8 weeks to complete processing of your return.”

    So, I will update this if I receive a return before the 8 weeks from today, Feb. 27th, 2017. But, I more than likely won’t since my ex husband illegally claimed the children on his return and e-filed before I could, hence the paper filing. I did send in the copy of divorce decree proving he couldn’t claim them, so I hope this speeds it up, but more than likely not.

    I did notice one thing that can be counted on, if YOU owe the IRS they want their money “right now!” or in payment plans, if the IRS owes us, we must beg, plead, prove we deserve it, and then wait wait wait until the IRS decides it will give it to us.

    I understand the Fraud aspect, and it is a shame that the IRS has to hold onto legitimate returns because of Fraud, thank you My Ex Husband, as you now fall into the category of people that make our tax returns take much longer, not just for me, but for everyone because he committed fraud.

    There has got to be a better way!!!

    On a side note, federal IRS still states they haven’t even seen my return yet… Erghhhh!

    My son filed his state return on January the 26th,2017 and he received his direct deposit in early February.I filed mine on January the 27th,2017 and today is a month later.I am still receiving the message stating allow 8 weeks for processing.I read that if there is an E.I.T.C involved in the return that the refund will be issued in March.After March the 1st hopefully the state will release the refunds.

    Well…according to the Iowa DoR Facebook page, ALL returns are being held this year not just those who claimed PATH credits.

    “”All electronically filed returns will have a turn around time of six to eight weeks even if no EITC is claimed on the Iowa return.” ”

    I filed the 3rd so I expect I won’t see any money until the mid to latter part of March. I can understand being careful and conscientious but this borders on ridiculous. I won’t be e-filing my state taxes in the future since apparently, paper filers aren’t being subjected to these arbitrary holds.

    Filed and accepted on 2/3 although the Iowa DoR website didn’t update to show that for a few days. Has said “Allow 2 additional weeks for processing” since that time. We are not claiming any of the credits that are slowing others down, but this is the slowest turnaround in refund issuance I can remember. Usually, about a week after filing we get our money. This year, for the first time ever, the fed is going to beat the state in turnaround time.

    I filed my state taxes on 1/23 and logged in next day and showed my receipt date of 1/24. But got to allow at least 8 wks. for processing. They are taking this identity thing serious also. I filed my sons income tax and his says processing for at least 2 wks. So has to do with this identity and EIC thing I’m sure as I was reading on their website.

    I filed electronically in February. The state accepted my return on Feb.22. The only message that has been showing since then is to allow up to 60 days and that they will send a letter if they need additional information. Today is April 6th. It has bsen 45 days, haven’t received a letter and still no update.

    02/16/16……I just talked with state of Iowa….. Here’s the scoop: There was a few week time frame that all of the refunds are being held because the IRS notified the state of Iowa that there were fraudulent returns filed. He said people that were not entitled to refunds filing for them. I filed on 02/07/16 it was processed on 02/09/16 still says allow 2 weeks for processing. No further updated on the website. Agent said my return has finished processing but he told me that I got caught in that group of people. The group that has the payments held will be released at the end of this week which would be the 02/19/16. My son’s was accepted on 02/01/16 and his now says that It is under review and will be released within 60 days if not sooner. My take on his is that he moved this past year and has a new address and a new bank account and they are making sure it is going to the correct person.
