    Thank you, Nikki. Glad to hear there’s a light at the end of this tunnel!

    He completed what was requested on Monday and on Friday the 17th it was processing refund. On Tuesday we updated to refund sent and got $$ this morning. So it moved quick. He also filed that same as always.

    I just got the same letter. So weird! I’ve been filing the same for 20 years. Just strange.

    My fiance got a letter sent to him on March 9th. He filed on January 27th. We got the letter and just had to go to their site and put in a code and answer 1 question, which was whether or not he filed his return. He did that on March 13th and today his return is now processing. Mine also changed to processing today. Wonder how long it will sit there for.

    There’s light at the end of the tunnel!!! Filed my return on 1/26 woke up to a processing status this morning. Everyone I know got their return within 2 weeks! It only took almost 8 weeks but the status finally changed today! Good luck to you all that’s still waiting.

    Still nothing tired of checking everyday hoping I will at least get an update! Everyone I know has gotten there’s within 2 weeks of filing taxes I have no changes filed the same the last 5 years I don’t know what they could possibly still be checking this is ridiculous

    Don’t feel so bad, I was new to the state… I moved to Minnesota December of 2015. I am a full time single father, with custody of a, then, 2 year old. I moved in to my mothers, got back on my feet after a nasty custody battle, and by August of 2016 I moved out of Minnesota (I got out before the cold came back! LOL) so now I am living here in Pennsylvania, Filed on 1/26. Everyone I know in Minnesota has gotten their returns, yet here it is 3/21/17 and I am still waiting for my refund. I check my refund status every night around 2 AM EST, I think the disappointment at this point is what keeps me coming back, just like trying to rekindle an old flame with an ex. I’ve already discredited the notion of ever seeing this money any time soon, maybe after the summer I will get it… So one day I will wake up and find a *cough* free $1700 in my bank account.

    Finally refund was sent today per mn where’s my refund!! Only 7 1/2 weeks!! Now let’s see if it shows up in my account soon!!

    I filed with Jackson Hewitt on Jan 15, 2017. I got my state back on Feb 23, 2017 (Due to EITC), but MN says “Checking for accuracy”, and here it is Mar 15, 2017.
    I moved here from Chicago, and I was just beginning to realize how much I liked this state…. Until this tax season!

    I just talked to a lady who said she hasn’t heard of anything regarding a 2 month delay. Just that they are being extra watchful of fraud. It was the same last year. Every person you talk to has a different story. She did, however, check for possible red flags and if I had been sent any letters. All seems to look ok there. Very aggravating

    Well, Feb 28. Filed Jan 27. accepted Jan 27 for Minn. State. Still checking for accuracy. last year it was Oct. before I got my state. No audit, no additional review no holds, no letters sent and no add. info requested. Just the same bs. “we take the time to check everyone’s return to make sure they get the return they are due” or some crap like that. Big whoopie they gave me 33$ in interest. I am getting the feeling it will be just like last year with Minn. What the hell is going on here.

    Filled mn income 1/26 and still checking for accuracy! Federal coming in 3 days but Minnesota is still dicking around. This sucks.

    #4179882 Reply


    Errr!! I filed 2/3 and was accepted same day. Still on “checking” status. It’s ridiculous because I have a direct deposit date for Fev 22nd for my federal AND THEY HAD A DARN HOLD UBTIL THE 15th.

    I have had to friends file. On on 2/1 and she got her refund the following Monday (with no kids,basic return) and one friend filed 2/1 and got her refund the following Friday (3 kids, two jobs, self employment). I filed two days after them, 2 kids, 2 jobs and nothing still (20 days later). Last year it took two months and I wasn’t audited or anything. Literally nothing was wrong. They just decided to take two months.

    I need this money. I’m on time paying you every paycheck- it’s time to cough up and pay me.

    #4171980 Reply


    This site should be called “I haven’t got my REFUND”

    I have read every post going back to the beginning and NOT ONCE has someone mentioned getting their refund. Even after whining about NOT getting it does anyone post to say it finally came. LOL

    #4169856 Reply


    Filed my state on January 27, was accepted right away and as of today, it is still saying checking for accuracy. I have never had problems with it taking so long. I usually have gotten them back right away. I know this has nothing to do with the Federal holding refund until Feb 15.

    #4162249 Reply


    I have a feeling that anyone that has to wait for their federal because of the PATH act… we will be waiting for our state as well. I’m still stuck on checking for accuracy as well. A friend had already received both if her refund, state and federal, and she filed a week ago!!! I filed the 18th and nothing yet!!!

    #4161989 Reply


    I’m still on checking for accuracy.. This is getting ridiculous, at this rate I will end up having my federal first!

    I am still checking for accuracy on mn where’s my refund. They do like to take their time for some reason every year. Simple returns shouldn’t have to wait so long. Just have a feeling we will all be waiting months for our refunds

    #4159119 Reply


    It seems Minnesota will be just like last year. It took them 8 months to give me tax return. Big deal if they gavee a lousy $33 in interest. I just dont know what is going on. But i sure hope its smoother than last year.

    #4154718 Reply


    So last year was a nightmare. After making numerous calls and sending several FB messages, and getting various different stories and excuses from Mn state, it takes getting in touch with the Tax Payor Advocate to find out 5 months after filing that I had been audited. Me, a single mom of a (then) 17 and 20 year old and barely living paycheck to paycheck. They literally tossed out EVERY SINGLE deduction Turbo Tax qualified me for and I got back less than a third of what I should have. I submitted this morning and was accepted on both state and federal just a couple hours later. It’s been a rough year financially. I’m crossing my fingers for a smooth ride this time.

    #4153668 Reply


    I had gotten 2 emails saying my state was accepted, the 19th and the 23rd.. than the checking for accuracy on the 24th… im wondering if they are behind or my first email was wrong. You should update soon on there I would hope. It was later in the afternoon when mine did

    #4153662 Reply


    Filed today, got accepted . But can’t pull up anything on the state website , ironically last year I filed on the 22nd (a Friday) and got my refund exactly a week later

    Filed Jan 19th, accepted the 23rd… 24th being checked for accuracy… How long does it usually take to get to processing?

    #4150527 Reply


    I, too, am still waiting for my tax refund. I am out-of-state resident living and working in MN while in graduate school. It has been almost six months since my return was accepted, and ever since it has been categorized as “checking for accuracy” on the website. I have never heard of a state tax refund taking this long to process. The federal came in no time, and when I worked in my home state and had to file there this never happened. There seems to be no accountability or transparency on this issue. Even local news agencies that have investigated this matter seem to have gotten nowhere. What nonsense: if this is what the Mn Dept of Rev considers “effective” screening for the supposed uptick of tax fraud, imagine how effective they really are in actually catching the people committing said fraud. Again, what a joke.

    #4150508 Reply


    I filed 3/25 electronically and it was accepted 2 weeks later. We are now in September and it’s still checking for accuracy. Every time I call they tell me that there’s no limitations on how long they have to process it and to keep checking online for updates. They said everything looked fine so far and the delay is due to fraud checks. My renters refund says the same crap, I hate my state for this. Is there anyone else still waiting on refunds

    #4150030 Reply


    So I messaged them on FB and here was their response:
    Good morning Tina. I don’t think what we’ve said have been different excuses but more of an attempt to offer a bit more detail as to why we need to take the time necessary to review every return and make sure the right refund is going to the right person. This is where the fraud aspect comes in and with scams on the rise, we need to make sure we are diligent in our reviews and protecting taxpayer money by keeping it out of the hands of criminals.
    We begin processing returns in the order they are received, but as they go through our review process, some may take longer than others to complete. That’s why someone who filed after you may have gotten their refund already. Thanks for your questions.

    #4150022 Reply


    Yep. I called for the second time on Friday. Been on “checking for accuracy” since Feb.2. Firat call they said it was due to an influx of filers all at the end of Jan. Now they say fraud checks. They can’t seem to get their stories straight.

    #4150011 Reply


    Just thought I would put my experience on here. I filed on Jan. 26th got my federal on Feb. 9th. Still have not received my MN state. It is on second bar checking for accuracy ever since I filed. I have called twice and both times the just tell me it’s taking longer this year because of all the fraud issues. This is not true because every one I know got theirs back in two weeks or less. It has been over two months for me. Never taken this long. Ever. So frusterating!

    #4149805 Reply


    Filed almost 2 months ago, still checking accuracy. Trouble for us is my husband works in MN, we live in ND, and for 3/4 of the year my husband was paying taxes to MN instead of ND so we are supposed to get everything back he paid in. Wonder what accuracy they are looking for when we aren’t even supposed to pay MN taxes?

    They also said it affected so few of people they didn’t bother to share any info about it online they didn’t want to upset everyone else who is fine.

In years past its almost always been deposited in my account before my Federal, Worse yet the state of minnesota is already sitting on a 2 billion dollar surplus. Maybe they’re taking our money and investing it to make some more for their coffers. Give the working people there money for god’s sake.
