    Well, I just submitted documents for proof of child care. Hopefully they’ll accept everything I spent days collecting between myself and the babysitter.

    well they finally loaded a letter to my portal. apparently they think i didn’t include some tax credits for the federal tax liability. which is crazy since i used the numbers from my fed filing in order to do my oregon filing. so they are now reducing my refund by $80. seriously. all that payroll and crazy from the state to get $80-it cost more than that to calculate it. BESIDES THE FACT THAT IT IS WRONG! i looked at my fed return and i did use the number from there. but the reduced it anyways because they think i “qualify” for a larger deduction than claimed. just because i may have qualified doesn’t mean that i took it. ugh. whatever. hopefully i should get my smaller refund in the next few days. so stupid.

    ” We adjusted or denied the federal tax subtraction to the federal income tax after credits on your federal return. Your federal income tax after credits may have been decreased if you qualified for a larger federal standard deduction than you claimed. “

    the state’s latest reply:

    At this time I do not have an update for you regarding your 2017 tax return filed, no notices have been issued. If you do not receive a request for additional information or your refund after 12 weeks we may be able to send an update inquiry to our processing area on your behalf. Unfortunately at this time we do have to allow additional time for processing.

    ugh. so stupid. they say to allow additional time, but do not say WHY.

    sms18- ugh. that sucks. im glad i kept all my child care stuff. but still ridiculous that the feds deposited my refund within two weeks of filing and here we are MONTHS later trying to figure out what is going on stateside. ill scan all of my stuff tonight to have it ready to load via the portal. thank you so much for updating what you are going through. it really is helping me to be ready for the next steps! :)

    nessi-right?! ive been filing since 14, (almost 30 years!) and have been doing “electronic” filing for about half that time. this is also the first time ive had any hold up.

    Just an update, they’re requiring proof of the child care credit. So, no good update for me just yet. Frustrating that the state isn’t satisfied with my filed return but the government is. My childrens sitter already filed and reported what I paid her, of course they have no issue taking the taxes owed from her without proof of childcare, but can’t go forward with my return without extensive proof. I can get it sent to them, but this is ridiculous.

    Kmpts7 I have to and in both of my w2s. I was shocked, they gave me some story like because i do my taxes online they needed me to send them. I’ve been doing my taxes since I was 17 and never was asked for them from the state revenue before. Idk I’m just glad they are on the way now. Good luck!!

    SMS18- so glad to hear you were able to actually get an update! we just moved into our new house, so I’ve updated via the portal our new address just in case. we didn’t have any 1099s. Only W-2s. I’d be surprised if they needed a copy of a W-2, but at this point who knows. Seems like they are really behind the times in comparison to other states. Please update once you receive your refund, I’d like to get an idea of how long it should take us. Thanks!

    Nessi, if you have a scanner and laptop/computer, you could scan the needed documents and submit through The portal. There’s an option to “submit documents”. It took me a minute to figure it out myself. I sent it in 2 days ago and they’ve received them already. Hoping it’ll update Monday or tuesday.

    Jessica143, its confusing for me because I never even saw my amount like every one else, I have no idea what to expect. Driving me crazy. I was able to submit my documents through the portal and hope it’s enough. Now just to wait for it to all go through without anymore issues!

    Everyone getting the letters for W2s and 1099s submit them online through the Revenue Online portal!!! They get reviewed in 2-3 days if that, you can track it to see if they have been processed and then you should see your amount zero out and then they issue your refund quickly. They actually owed me more money so I got a letter a few days after I submitted my documents saying they adjusted my refund. I got the letter online on 4/5 and it was dated for 4/11 and my refund was deposited on 4/10. Got my letter in the mail on 4/2

    This state continues to be an utter disappointment to me. First I was asked by the State of Oregon to take on 2 children who cannot watch themselves while I’m working. Then paid cash to the caretaker but because I’ve got no reciepts I have to pay this greedy state instead of getting a refund. Thanks Oregon a real piece of work.

    FINALLY got a letter in the mail. I talked to someone on the phone, he did mention that these letters will not show up in the online portal. I’m very relieved it’s just my w2 and 1099r they want, it would’ve been a huge hassle gathering info for the child care credit, which I can provide, but still a hassle.
    Hopefully I can get these documents submitted quickly and get a better update soon!!

    I have lived in Oregon most of my life and have always had to pay extra each year, never a refund. I’m now retired and didn’t work much extra last year and finally get a refund of almost $200, mostly thanks to the kicker. I filed on Jan 28, and just received a letter today asking for w-2’s and 1099’s. WTF? 10 weeks after I file they want copies of documents they should already have? Do only people getting refunds get manual processing? Mexico is sounding better all the time.

    My refund was sent this morning. It matches the date on the offset adjustment letter I received in my online portal last Thursday or Friday.

    I highly encourage anyone getting letters and requests for additional information to submit them through the online portal. It is much faster than mailing anything back and it allows you to see when it’s been processed.

    Good luck everyone!

    I’ve tried calling and they won’t tell me anything. I may give them a call again today.

    SMS18 – I would call them. The letter they sent about needing additional documentation never showed in my online portal. It just arrived in the mail.

    I thought it was odd because they should have all W2 and 1099 info because it is sent to them electronically by the employers and other agencies that issue them. When I called Thursday I was told they did not get my 1099 from the agency that issued it and that’s why I got held up in review.

    Might be worth a call to see.

    Jessica143, I have some hope.
    That’s awesome you’re getting progress! I filed 1/29 and am still stuck at 0.00, never seeing my amount in green and manual review. Hoping I at least get a letter or something soon.

    My Revenus Online portal updated this morning. I submitted the documents they requested from me electronically through the portal on Tuesday, they got processed in a day or two and I logged in this morning and my amount was $0.00 (green previously) and I had a letter stating my refund was more then H&R Block had said it was going to be.

    Looked at the Where’s My Refund status bar and it no longer says manual review it just says processing and if a refund is due it should be issued in 2 weeks. I have 2 or the 3 blue balls on the status indicator filled so just waiting on them to actually send the refund now.

    Filed 2-15 accepted 2-16 and have had a green amount now for almost a month. Finally got the letter on 4/3 and submitted requested documents (one 1099).

    Hope everyone that is still here starts to see some progress too!

    Hey Everyone,
    Quick update…I am in the same boat as Luis…I just received a letter today dated for 3/30/2018 requesting copies of W-2’s and 1099’s that show the taxes I paid to Oregon. Being as I only filed a tax return to get my kicker check benefit since I was a resident in 2015 and 2016, I only had a 1099-G with very little tax paid to Oregon from the Unemployment Department. I called to verify that this is all I had to send in along with the letter signed and sent back and the lady told me “yep that’s it”. There is no way to submit this online or fax it. I have to SNAIL mail this back. ONE FORM! Less than $300 in taxes paid to them and I can’t believe they don’t have access to to another state departments forms that were sent out. WHAT THE HELL!

    This is crazy. I filed almost 2 months ago and this is where it is currently at. Waiting on one form and I am not even a resident anymore. I have a feeling that others who have seen their amounts in green indefinitely will be getting this same letter.

    Oh and they couldn’t even be bothered to post this on the Revenue Online portal so I could have seen it as soon as it was sent and acted on it faster.

    Kmpts7, I’m not sure. This is my 4th year filing and every year I’ve gotten a refund and never had this issue. Only thing that makes sense is maybe the state is so broke they’re putting off refunds they can’t afford to pay out right away.

    SMS18- I am in the same boat as you. Its super frustrating. I have not once seen the amount show up, it has always been zero. That being said the past two years I have paid money to OR, this is the first year we have gotten any refund since we moved here. Maybe since we have traditionally paid every year (my husband was putting the wrong withholding down on his W4) our file is flagged since this year they owe us money? I’ve actually emailed and called and gotten no where with the state. When I asked if they could explain why it was in manual review or what stage it was in on the review…I got the same pat answer “Some files take longer than others”. When I asked if there was anyone I could speak to or email-I was told no. There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with my file, but who knows at this point!

    It would be nice to see a positive update from someone who HAS NOT seen their amount even show up. I see everyone has at least seen their balance. I’m extremely discouraged guys. It’s been longer than 2 months now.

    One of their employees just got caught uploading 36,000 personal files to their personal cloud so I’m wondering if that is creating any sort of hold up? Article said if you were affected you would get a notice in 7-10 days with an identity theft offer.

    This is third straight year Oregon has flagged my tax return for manual review. I file every year in February and the first year I never received my refund until August. Last year it was June. Here is the funny thing, I have a pretty straightforward return and they have NEVER asked for additional paperwork and there has never been a mistake or error on my part.

    I still haven’t gotten anything but an amount listed in green. Filed and accepted by 2/16. Not even a resident this year but had to pay to file to get my kicker for living there previously. They are stalling with the kicker check money it seems like. My refund isn’t even that big so I’m not sure what the hold up is.

    Has anyone received a tax return that was manually reviewed? It amazes me that not only can the department of revenue not provide answers, they are not being held to the same standards as Joe public. There are horror stories of returns taking 4-5 months in prior years and I personally would like to know what to prepare for. Next year I will adjust deductions to owe the state and when asked for a payment, I will tell them that there bill is under manual review and could you wait 12 business weeks before inquiring to payment whereabouts.

    Still same for me too. What does the green amount mean? I’ve had that for 2-3 weeks now. I know it’s good when it zeros out and pays you but if it’s still showing a green amount does that mean they’ve determined your credit and now it’s just sitting there waiting to be processed?
