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

@john, oh good!! I’m glad it arrived and it’s not in limbo somewhere.
You’re very welcome. Have a wonderful day! 😊January 31, 2018 at 11:22 am #4202164
Also thank you very much for your help. I was starting to worry. It is good to know there are still helpful people out there.January 31, 2018 at 11:04 am #4202143
The possibility of getting a mailed check is real, I just checked the copy of my paperwork and where there is a place on the federal return for a bank account number there is none on the state return. I only live about 25 miles north of Jefferson City.
BTW that is what happened as I was typing this message the doorbell rang it was the mail carrier with a couple of packages and my mail. There was my refund check with my mail.January 31, 2018 at 10:49 am #4202131
@john, someone else mentioned in the new Missouri forum that I created, that they called and MO told them that they mailed them a check vs. direct depositing it even though DD was requested on her tax forms.
Even if you moved from Washington in August, you should still have a refund coming from MO if you worked between then and the time the fiscal year ended.January 31, 2018 at 10:46 am #4202128
WA State has no income tax only sales tax.January 31, 2018 at 10:44 am #4202124
Used HR Block, and since I just moved to Missouri From Washington State in August with and all of our children in their 30s I don’t think there should be any offsets.January 31, 2018 at 10:32 am #4202114
@john, who did you file with? Did you have an offset by chance?January 31, 2018 at 10:31 am #4202110
I love TaxAct. I just got a text from the bank they use (Republic Bank & Trust) that says this:
Your State tax refund has been sent to your account and should be available within 1 to 5 days!
I just checked their website and sure enough, it’s there.
https://www.republictaxpayer.com/ – If you use TaxAct. Looks like they took the fee from my State this year vs. Federal.January 31, 2018 at 10:27 am #4202098
That was from the State of Missouri Website.January 31, 2018 at 10:23 am #4202095
@john, was your date given to you by the company you filed with, or by MO dept. of revenue?January 31, 2018 at 9:55 am #4202074
Your tax return has been processed. Refund issue date: 01/29/2018. and Nothing in my bank account. Does anyone know how long it takes to get the refund?January 31, 2018 at 8:38 am #4202014
Those of you who already received a DDD of the 30th or 31st, have any of you received your deposit? I expect at least a 24 hour waiting period on these deposit dates to allow for bank processing, however, if those on the 30th haven’t received their deposits, it can be one of two things:
An offset OR
Something is wrongJanuary 30, 2018 at 11:59 pm #4201899
e-filed and according to website 1040 dot com, my state return was accepted on 1/26/2018. The refund status on mo dor website shows received by not processed on 1/30/2018 11pmJanuary 30, 2018 at 7:40 am #4201150
Filed 1/23 TT, accepted 1/24, 1/27 Mo WMR updated to 1/30 DDD. Today it says “your tax return has been processe. Refund issue date:1/30/2018.
Any idea what time I should see the money or will it process overnight tonight?January 29, 2018 at 9:53 pm #4201001
No DDD yet, but says processed and accepted as filed. I filed on Jan. 24th and was accepted the next day.January 25, 2018 at 8:53 am #4199229
Anyone have a DDD for their Missouri state refund?
I filed on the 23rd, was accepted on the 24th. The MO.gov site says it’s processing. Last year I got it 4 days after it was accepted so I’m hoping for similar magic this year.November 20, 2017 at 10:17 am #4196704

First off, i called the provided # on the form the IRS form ( which is the only number that you can call and talk to a real person which is !!!OBSESSED!!! with NOT DOING THEIR JOB, BEING EXTREMELY RUDE, THEN FINALLY ARGUING WITH ME BEFORE I WAS HUNG UP ON.?.?.?
but that was only after i had “verified” my identity, which was the reason given for the hold up in first place.( by the way these SCUM OF SHIT-MOUTH WHORES THE IRS IS FARMING OUT THESE CUSTOMER SERVICE JOBS ARE MAINLY LOCATED IN AND ALL AROUND IRAN, & IRAQ. Who are the leaders in identity theft so it of course makes all logical sense to put them in a position where hard working and poorly paid SLAVES AKA AMERICAN CITIZENS are given no choice but to answer all their verification questions( basically handing them all info required to hack into and steal not only our accounts but our homes and life.
All do to OUR GOVERNMENT being huge, lazy, and UNLOYAL to us all.June 29, 2017 at 2:08 pm #4197247
My return was accepted on April 1st. When I go to check the status of my return, the MDOR return inquiry system says “Your return has been processed and accepted as filed.” Nothing else. What does that mean? Today is June 29th and I still have no information on my refund. Of course no one will answer the phone in Jeff City, I keep getting redirected to the automated system which says the same thing. I even double checked the routing and account number on my return to make sure I hadn’t somehow messed it up. I surely would have noticed the additional money in my account if it had been paid, but double and triple checked all the same. What gives?June 22, 2017 at 11:24 am #4197161
My taxes were filed on April 6th and accepted April 7th. I received my refund today June 22nd – 11 weeks later to the day. There was no communication (not surprised).
MO Dept of Revenue’s own form states:
Interest on Overpayments
“You will receive interest from the Department on any
overpayment of the individual income tax due for a filing
period if the Department does not refund to you the amount
overpaid within 45 days of the date you file your return.”
Per MO statute the DoR owes interest on that amount but did not include it in the refund for 32 days. The MO Dept of Revenue by state law is required to provide interest.
I see a class action lawsuit coming.June 21, 2017 at 10:48 am #4197136
My return was accepted April 14, 2017. I am still waiting on my refund. The message never changes that they are “processing” as of today June 21st. . I have sent 2 emails with no response. This is absolutely ridiculous! Almost 10 weeks. Nothing like holding onto our money for their benefit. I don’t even know how they can get away with this!June 20, 2017 at 8:25 am #4197114
Filed April 18, received an email from turbo tax April 24 that my return was accepted by Missouri. As of today June 20 I still get a message saying my return is being processed and to allow additional time – 9 weeks and counting since I filed ….. I don’t care about the interest I just want my money!June 18, 2017 at 2:08 pm #4197086
I filed April 12th this year. Two months I have been waiting. I wonder how much revenue Missouri is making off our delayed tax returns.
Manipulative to say the least.
Just submitted MO W4 married with 5 dependents, so they won’t get another dime from me until April 15th!!!June 12, 2017 at 5:02 am #4196997
Missouri finally update refund status. Filed April 15 today says your return has been processed. Issue date 6/13 I hope I’ll see some interest too (over 45 days)June 11, 2017 at 8:24 pm #4196994
I filed my 2016 Missouri State Return on 4/6/2017. Website still says processing. Allow additional time. I did see that if it takes over 45 days, then interest is to be added. But man, what is the hold up?! I received my Federal return over a month ago!June 6, 2017 at 5:12 am #4196917
Filed MO 4/15/17 and still waiting on 6/6/17. Website says “processing” and “allow additional time.” Had Fed refund weeks ago.May 25, 2017 at 5:54 pm #4196753
Update: Called MODOR today and they told me my check would be mailed out tomorrow for my 2014 tax return.May 24, 2017 at 12:49 pm #4196724
I sent in my 2016 return on April 18th and was told it didn’t begin processing until 4/24. I received a status update today that says the department proposed changes to my return because i claimed the wrong number of dependents.. and I should be receiving a letter in the mail dated 5/31…..so my 2016 took approx. 4 weeks
Now my 2014 and 2015 I sent in on March 28th. They began processing 2014 on April 10th and 2015 on April 6th. I am not sure how that happened when they were sent at the same time. So now my 2015 is completed processing but not my 2014 and that is the one I am looking for as my 2016 Federal was off set to pay the 2014 balance. The rep says she sees where my refund for 2014 is $XXXXX, but says it hasn’t completed processing…..How can that be? How can they see that I have a refund due if it isn’t completed processing?May 23, 2017 at 7:41 pm #4196702
Nicholas William Tracy
So i filed on Feb.21st and its now almost 11 WEEKS LATER and still on the wheres my refund site it stills says still processing and a refund date will be provided when return is processed. which is like a HUGE,” and a fuk you very much” to any and all who are in this boat with me.May 16, 2017 at 12:03 pm #4196580
Return was accepted on 3/17. Website has finally updated to “Your tax return has been processed. Refund issue date 05/17/2017”. smh….I’ll believe that deposit when I see it!!!May 15, 2017 at 4:22 am #4196547
Per the Taxpayer bill of rights:
Interest on Overpayments
You will receive interest from the Department on any
overpayment of the individual income tax due for a filing
period if the Department does not refund to you the amount
overpaid within 45 days of the date you file your return. You will
receive interest on any overpayment of corporation income or
corporation franchise tax due for a filing period if the Department
does not refund to you the amount overpaid within 120 days
of the date you file your return, the original due date, or the
extended due date, whichever is later.
At this point it has now been 46 days since I filedMay 10, 2017 at 6:24 pm #4196452
I filed April 1 2017 now may 10th 2917 still says Missouri tax refund revived but not processed I do owe IRS back taxes but filed a chapter 7 on April 29 2017 so automatic stay went into effect I was able to include back taxes cause they were from 2011 so they were discharged in bankruptcy already the IRS took my federal refund 5 days after I filed and chapter 7 hadn’t been filed yet so automatic stay was not in effect yet just wonder if state will issue my state refund r what because according to layer IRS cannot offset my refund anymore and since state had issued and still processing the refund they have to forward it to me in past year I filed and Missouri offset it to IRS within a week so can’t understand what’s going onMay 8, 2017 at 10:15 am #4196359
My tax return was accepted on 3/21/17. The DOR website still states “your return is being processed, please allow additional time”. I sent an email on 5/2/17 and received a response on 5/6. The email stated that they are still processing my return and during this heavy processing period their processing time is at 10-12 weeks!!!! The part I love the best “thank you for your continued patience” :-( I thought I would let everyone else know that it will be 10-12 weeks for you to get your return if you filed anytime in March.April 26, 2017 at 10:32 am #4195862
My state return was accepted on 3/17/17 and website has said that it is being processed for the last month. I’m planning on going to my grandsons graduation in a couple weeks and was planning on my refund to help with expenses, never thought it would take this long. I paid in the money through the year without a problem and would really appreciate getting my return pretty soon. Thank you. Old cranky retired veteran.March 31, 2017 at 4:38 am #4194303
I filed federal and MO together and both were accepted on 02/05/17. My fiancee filed federal and MO and both were accepted on 02/12/17 We both received federal return via direct deposit on 02/21/17.
I’ve been checking the dor.mo.gov website since February and getting the following response.
Your return has been processed and accepted as filed.
I’ve also been checking my fiancee’s status and getting the following response.
Your return has been received but not processed. The system is updated nightly. Please allow 24 hours before checking the status of your return.
I wrote the following email to [email protected] on 03/13/17.
I received my federal return via direct deposit 12 days after I filed and I have been checking the status of my Missouri return since February and all it says is that it has been accepted as filed. Is there a backlog for returns? I have not been able to find any answers to my question on the website, nor from any other sources. Thank you.
Got this reply via secured message on 03/16/17.
Thank you for the email. At this time, you should allow six to eight weeks processing time for your refund to be issued.
Missouri Department of Revenue
Then when I went online to check the status of my fiancee’s return on 03/30/17 I got this message.
The department is proposing changes to your return. You will receive a Notice of Proposed Changes dated, 03/27/2017, explaining the adjustments. Please wait until you receive this notice before contacting the department.
The Notice arrived in the mail on 03/30/17 along with a paper check for the adjusted amount, which was way less than what we had expected.
Bottom line is, it’s a big waiting game!!!!March 29, 2017 at 9:17 am #4193918
My state return was accepted feb 27, still no refund. The website says they are processing my return allow extra time…very frustrating.March 27, 2017 at 4:27 pm #4193697
Received my refund *finally* on Tuesday, 21 March 2017. My return was accepted on 12 February.
So about 6 weeks….March 26, 2017 at 10:49 pm #4193632
Mine was showing”received but not processed but changed to “processed and accepted as filed” and has been like that since 3/21/17.
Does anyone know what that means?March 23, 2017 at 1:05 pm #4193255
Filed/accepted 2/24 finally have update from “being processed allow additional time” to issue refund date 3/24.March 23, 2017 at 8:18 am #4193210
@Khaz – it took a few days to receive a response. I will also say that after ALL these shenanigans, I still have yet to see the return. NOW it saws that all or part of our refund was intercepted (basically to pay off something) but I am not sure what it is paying off or why. I called the federal offset line and neither me or my hubby have any owed debts. A friend of mine said that old utility bills are being taken by KS & MO from the refund checks, but we live in KS (my hubby just works in MO) so I am not sure what they are taking and why. It says we should’ve received a letter but it changed to that status on Friday and we haven’t received any letter yet.March 21, 2017 at 10:29 pm #4192040
Missouri received my return February 9th. Website has continually shown “Your tax return has been received; but not processed.”.
This morning I sent an email to: [email protected]
Within 2 hours I received the following:
“Thank you for contacting the Missouri Department of Revenue.
According to our records, the Department received your 2016 Missouri return on February 09, 2017. However, with the rise in identity theft and fraudulent returns, the Department must take additional precautions to protect Missouri taxpayers. We are reviewing more returns to ensure fraudulently claimed refunds are not issued. I apologize for the delay. The average processing time is 8-10 weeks; please allow additional time for processing.”.
As someone who actually had my identity stolen last year I provided my IRS issued PIN number and MO Drivers license along with my returns this year. It’s disheartening to learn that such measures seem to be disregarded and all returns held up in the name of “security”. Someone earlier suggested it was a sham to allow MO to keep the money longer (and earn interest on it). I’m starting to believe it. Grrrr.March 21, 2017 at 8:32 am #4192409
Thank you so much for this info and link @MissD!March 20, 2017 at 8:07 am #4192268
I checked Saturday and the MO Dept of Revenue updated to “refund will be processed 3/21″…I opted for direct deposit so we will see….March 17, 2017 at 8:49 am #4191700
@ Nalani – can you tell me how long it took for you to receive a response when emailing MO DOR? I was told I would receive a confirmation email of the documentation I submitted, however, I still have not. Thanks!March 15, 2017 at 9:07 am #4191647
Most of my MO friends haven’t received their refund yet. I know that our situation is that my hubby works in MO and we live in KS. But for that matter – we still haven’t rcvd our KS back either. I also know how the military situation goes too. I used to work for the DOD and once had to pay Virginia, Missouri and Kansas for 2 tax years because I went to VA to work for 8 months and the 8 months spanned into the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012. Now that was brutal.
I still haven’t received my actual refund but my status has changed to “processing”March 14, 2017 at 11:15 pm #4191545
Just got off the phone with MO DOR, and because we’re military we have to wait 8-10 weeks for our refund. Can see a home of record change in the near future…Missouri is trying to delay and avoid paying these refunds. Everyone I know who is not from Missouri has received their state refund. They offer no real explanation, just further verification???March 14, 2017 at 8:08 am #4191440
I e-filed 1/28/17, return was accepted by MO within just a couple of days, do not recall exact date.
Status on the online refund form stated my return had “been received, pending processing”, until 3/1/17, at which point it changed to “the department is proposing changes to your return. You will receive a letter dated 3/8/17 explaining the changes; please do not contact the Department until you’ve received this letter”. So, I receive the letter Friday, 3/10/17. Letter indicates the proposed changes are as follows (I work in KS, live in MO): “your resident credit is changes to zero”, and ” your MO tax withheld is changed to zero”. I, like most people likely would, assumed my employer failed to file the proper documentation (especially considering this has been an issue with my employer over the last couple of years, but that’s a whole different story). So, I go in to work this morning, ready to bite heads off in the HR Dept. I am provided proof of my w-2 filing with the state, which occurred mid January. After several attempts (being disconnected from the customer service line MULTIPLE times), and over an hour wait, I finally am connected with a real live person (they DO exist!). I inquired as to why I was being required to prove such information when both the IRS and the state of KS had received the appropriate information from my employer, and issued refunds accordingly with no issue. Did you not receive confirmation? “Oh, we did, but the processing department just wants to confirm the w-2 YOU used to file your information is the same as what your employer filed”. What?!? (Can you not tell by the fact that I claimed the EXACT SAME MONETARY FIGURES!?) So, now, I have to provide ALL documentation to prove where I received my figures in completing my tax return, DESPITE the fact that they admitted to receiving the proper documentation from my employer. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I believe the MO DOR is short on funds to pay out refunds, and are playing games to delay having to pay out. I was told that after submitting documentation proving where I received the info I used to file my return; (which, again, I reiterate they have had for a month and a half!) it would be ANOTHER 6-8 weeks before my refund would be processed. I am so beyond frustrated. I am literally left speechless; I have NO WORDS for the level of frustration I am at with the MO DOR at this point.March 13, 2017 at 9:04 am #4191289
@momof3blondies AND @Chuck
@Mom – I emailed the DOR email that was on their website. I sent a second email making sure that the email was intended for me, considering it was addressed to someone else, and she confirmed it was for me and misaddressed. She told me that the website would update “tomorrow” which was Saturday 03/11/2016 but since it was not a federal working day – it didn’t update until this morning to “Processing”
@Chuck – I was told on 03/10/2017 that my status would update, but due to the weekend it didn’t update until today.March 13, 2017 at 8:47 am #4191001
Filed and accepted: 2/3
Status online: since 2/3, received but not processed (as of 03/10)
03/10: have not received any verification forms
Last year (2016) DOR sent form needing to authenticate identify (within 15 days, or they were going to keep the refund)
Retuned documents to provide identity via certified mail, and faxed.
Received 2015 tax year refund extremely delayed, but received.
Limited amount of information available for tax yer 2016 and delayed refunds:
Assuming from this forum due to identity theft.
Emailed DOR on Wed., (email on their site): politely inquired that if the delay is again due to verifications, that I went through the same process last year. Why is it needed again, especially since I have so many tax related form that are unique to my tax situation. It is impossible for identity theft in my situation, with MO taxes.
Response received same day stating, “Thank you for contacting the Missouri Department of Revenue.
I have processed your 2016 return and your refund will be processed as normal.
I apologize for the delays on your 2016 Missouri return.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the Department.
As of today, 3/11, the status online still states, “received, not processed”
So….it’s a blow off, as the system ismiodate every 24 hours.
Historically, MO refunds were very predictable. The last 3 years, the delays, and tactics used are not up to par with past years, as well, greiten, our new governor is doing everything possible to drain MO of all funds. I am disappointed in the way the state is mismanaged my money, basically boils down to the millions in interest they continue to accrue while our money sits in efile limbo.
Solution: following the guidelines of w4 federal and state deductions, changing the w4 withholding is the only logical decision. If we were to owe mo tax, we would pay interest, as well payment demanded. Taking back control of my money. If you owe no federal,or state taxes: you can claim exempt (check the publications on modor and IRS sites. If you can not claim exempt, charge your deduction should on your w4s, aiming for minimal pay witholdings to state and federal It will mean you have more take home pay. You can set aside money you will owe (if any) for 2017 tax year. Avoid exile fees and the headache from this unnecessary stress.
You never know when the refunds (of your cash) will dry up by the powers that be. New administration in all areas of government are Republican.
In 2018, snail mail your returns, and if any tax is due—make it in small incremental payments.March 12, 2017 at 3:25 pm #4191210
Filed/accepted 2.10.17. Sat on accepted but not processed and today I finally changed to “being processed”. I hope this doesn’t take a month to be processed….March 10, 2017 at 1:36 pm #4190880
Just called the DOR at 8:30 am Hawaii time and they told me that processing is now taking 6-8 weeks and even longer for military. But my return is being processed. The representative stated that once income tax returns are received, they automatically start processing.
So since my return was accepted on 12 February, I am expecting the refund before 12 April.
