Oregon WMR still shows as “under manual review” for me today, but when I login to my Revenue Online account it shows as “Ontime-Processed” so hopefully that means something soon!February 13, 2017 at 12:55 pm #4168816
On the Revenue online, does it show yours as “in progress” or as “On Time-Processed”?.. Just curious.February 13, 2017 at 12:46 pm #4168800
So on the WMR it shows Under Manual Review. But if I create an account on Revenue Online it shows that it is in progress (not under manual review) and the refund amount. So check there before you assume its actually under review or being held.February 13, 2017 at 11:56 am #4168700
Just something I noticed from last year…
Last year I was put on “Manual Review”, I called the IRS, was part of a Turbo Tax error, and got everything worked out. Well, that Saturday, they removed the “Under Review” verbiage and it went back to the standard message. Then I ended up getting my refund on Weds. 2/3, my WMR hadn’t updated to the 3rd bar until AFTER I already had the money in my account.
So, I am hoping this year is going the exact same. This year, just like last year, they removed the “Under Review” status and switched it back to standard verbiage on Saturday. So, I am hoping that Wednesday I will have my money in my account again, just like last year.
I just thought it was odd, it may be a coincidence, but it might not!February 11, 2017 at 4:16 pm #4167686
You are very welcome. As long as your full amount is there and no correspondence has been sent out then you should be good to go!
I was VERY surprised to see the manual review verbiage gone and to see:
1. Where’s My Refund
2. Where’s My Refund Results
Where’s My Refund Results
WHERE’S MY REFUND
Your return is currently being processed. Your refund or other information should be issued within three to four weeks unless your return is selected for further review.February 11, 2017 at 3:40 pm #4167667
@AM88 – thanks so much for the info, it is appreciated! I was able to also create a login and see my refund amount. I don’t see any alerts or letters sent out as of yet, so I’m hoping it will be sent out soon! My Oregon WMR didn’t update yet, it still shows “manual review” but I am keeping my fingers crossed!February 11, 2017 at 2:33 pm #4167618
And look at this.. Oregon WMR updated last night and I am no longer in “manual review”, I have the standard ” your return is processing” verbiage.
The lady said my refund will be released ON the 15th.. So I expect it no later than Friday. Which makes sense as to why I no longer have the manual review, I am no longer in “holding”, and ready to be sent. They could release as early as Monday and received on Wednesday. Either way, can’t wait to have my money this week!February 10, 2017 at 4:04 pm #4166822
AM88 is right i just signed up and it told me the same thing my refund was in green and said ontime processed i had no alerts on my accountFebruary 10, 2017 at 3:04 pm #4166764
So, I will post in here again. If you read my previous post, you will see in detail what I’m talking about. There has been so much back and forth on here, that I called OR department of revenue again, just to verify.
I spoke to a different agent, who again confirmed that ANYTHING you see on the WMR tool is NOT VALID. Because of THE PATH ACT and oregon following it, most everybody’s says “under manual review” because there return has been placed on hold. However, she reffered me to the REVENUE ONLINE site, where you’re able to log in and see any amounts due by you AND OWED TO YOU. It will also show any correspondence that was sent to you (i.e. I’d verification, etc.). So I created an account with them, logged on and my account balance is my refund amount in green (meaning it is owed to me) there are also no letter or any correspondence sent to me. Under my returns for every years, this year’s says my refund amount and it also shows it is “Ontime – Processed”.. So my refund has been approved, the money has been added to my account to be sent out and now it is just waiting 5 more days. They said they WILL start sending oregon refunds ON the 15th..
I am not here to lie to you or spread misinformation, I have 3 kids and am just trying to figure this all out. Just because we are “Under Manual Review” doesn’t mean we other actually are, it is just on hold until the15th.
If you create a Revenue Online account and log in, you will be able to see what refund amount you are getting, if you’ve been processed and if they’ve sent ANY letters to you about ANYTHING to do with your refund. So if you want to make sure everything is going smooth, log on to revenue online!! Can’t wait til the 15th!!February 9, 2017 at 10:50 am #4150289
After 11 weeks my fiancés wmr finally changed back to 3-4 week processing with a $0 balance when he logs in. Hoping the deposit will hit soon. It looks like it was manually reviewed because he put $0 for the kicker so they needed a whole 3 months to change it to $18 lmao. Can’t believe it has takin this long just to adjust his refund by less than $20. Hope everyone receives their refund soon.February 9, 2017 at 10:50 am #4150147
I was put on manual review after I filed and then they needed an identity quiz so I did that the same day and now they’re sending me a letter about needing more info on my disabled son even tho that has nothing to fucking do with my Oregon refund! I only got Oregon refund for day care expenses. This is bullshit! I only get my taxes until the fucking summer!! Another 12 weeks after I turn in the paperwork. I can’t believe this! Can someone help me please? Should I get a lawyer?? Who should I tell this too? I’m NOT GETTING MY MONEY UNTIL SUMMER AND I FILED FEB 1st! GOT MY FEDERAL A WEEK LATER! PLEASE HELPFebruary 9, 2017 at 10:50 am #4150241
EVERYBODY I had to do the identy quiz and they waited 13 weeks to send me the letter saying j needed to do it. I did it the same day just to wait 3 weeks to be sent a letter saying I need to prove my son is disabled. This is bullshit! I just sent them what they asked for so now I have to wait 12 more weeks for MY MONEY! I pay Oregon on time every two weeks I pay MY TAXES ON TIME EVERY TWO WEEKS! When it’s time to give me my refund they want to wait UNTIL THE END OF SUMMER TO MAYBE GIVE IT TO ME OR ANOTHER FUCKING LETTER. LOVE PAYING MY TAXES TO BE TREATED LIKE SHIT. GOVERMENT GAGSTERS. I just GIVE UP! I don’t expect to ever get my money.February 9, 2017 at 6:49 am #4150240
I had to do a identity quiz and after I did they they waited three whole weeks to send me a letter about my disabled son and needing proof even though it didn’t affect my Oregon refund at all! So I called again and I won’t be getting my money until the fucking SUMMER! Sorry for my language but I’ve never in my life heard of someone waiting until the END OF SUMMER FOR THEIR REFUND! OREGON TAKES THEIR MONEY OUT OF MY CHECKS EVERY TWO WEEKS ON TIME LIKE CLOCK WORK BUT WHEN ITS TIME TO SEND ME MY MESELY 900 DOLLARS I HVE TO WAIT UNTIL SUMMER! THATS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN AND ITS INSANSE TO ME. GLAD I PAY MY TAXES JUST TO BE SCREWED OVER BY OREGON.February 7, 2017 at 11:15 am #4161068
So thankful for this website! I was freaking out a bit when I saw that my return was “Under Review” especially since we are getting a refund. I will just wait until February 15th and see what happens. :)February 6, 2017 at 7:35 pm #4160119
Sure is funny when you owe them money they want it right now but when they owe us money they can put a hold on itFebruary 5, 2017 at 1:27 pm #4159263
Manual review too. I filed on the 26th, still under manual review. Like others have said, I also think the “Manual Review” is just a way to hold refunds from processing early (since they are holding them till the 15th). Has anyone not gotten it? or is no longer under Manual Review?February 4, 2017 at 9:57 am #4158607
If you read farther down in this thread, this is alluded to, but here are the facts: Oregon went a step further than the PATH act and decided to hold ALL refunds until the 15th of February. Here is an article about it: http://nwnewsnetwork.org/post/early-tax-refund-seekers-oregon-will-have-wait-until-february-15…so, Oregonians will not have tax returns from the State until after that date. I do believe they put everyone into the ‘manual review’ until that time because they don’t know how else to ‘stop’ processing until they are released. I find this SO frustrating…there has to be a better way…February 2, 2017 at 10:30 pm #4157488
I’m hearing that for the first year ever, Oregon is instituting the federal PATH Act, which is just placing everything under ‘manual review’ until after the 15th, but because the verbiage was screwed up in the system, it’s just showing ‘manual review’, instead of being in ‘PATH Act hold’. The first problem with this explanation is, the IRS is already kicking out federal returns. I got mine late last month, as well as many, many other folks who even fall into special categories when dealing with refund credits. Secondly, Oregon did this last year, as well. If this was truly a verbiage ‘glitch’, then an entire year went by without them fixing it. It took nearly six months for me to get my return last year, and I was almost to the point of lawfully receiving interest. Lastly, I don’t fall into any special credits categories, but I’m also flagged for ‘manual review’. Two year ago, I heard that the Oregon Department of Revenue erroneously issued millions of dollars in refunds to fraudulent filers. After that happened, it seems they kind of freaked out and just started flagging nearly every filer. “PATH Act”, or not, there’s no reason that you should have to wait that long for returns, especially when you were one of the first ones in the state to file. I’ve heard many explanations and excuses from the Oregon DOR, but none of them add up.February 2, 2017 at 3:37 pm #4157265
UPDATE FOR EVERYBODY!!
So, I guess what is happening is: As most of us know, Oregon is following suite with the Federal Government and the PATH Act. Which means that NO refunds, that include EIC, Working Families, Child Tax Credit or Child Care Credit, will be issued until after Feb. 15th. Now, because of this and because of the refunds being “Held”, it puts all of the returns (with one of those credits) in a special queue. Now, that queue hasn’t been used in previous years and this is their first time processing returns under the PATH Act, however, they didn’t add an actual “PATH Act Verbiage” for their WMR tool.
So, what happens is when your return goes into that queue, it doesn’t register on their WMR as “PATH ACT”, it registers the “Under Manual Review” verbiage and so that is what we are all seeing. Nothing is wrong with our returns, besides being held under the PATH Act, they are just in a separate queue than the “Normal” returns that were filed without any of the above mentioned credits.February 1, 2017 at 8:20 pm #4156724
i think its just a computer glitch everyone i know is getting the same thing manual reviewFebruary 1, 2017 at 7:28 pm #4156701
I submitted my Oregon Tax on January 30, I am claiming a ACTC and I just went into manual review as well.
Called Oregon State Revenue but they are very vague why I went into review. I suspect it’s because they are holding returns untill Feb 15. Thoughts?February 1, 2017 at 2:12 pm #4156542
the only credit i had was the eic credit i didn’t have the other creditsFebruary 1, 2017 at 1:53 pm #4156527
@ Tha Big Sexy
Did you happen to have the Working Families Credit, Child Tax, or Child Care credit??.. Mine still says Manual Review and on the 2nd bar, nothing has changed. Just wondering, since yours changed and doesn’t say manual review, if you have claimed any of those?January 31, 2017 at 4:18 pm #4155944
i went in to manual review last Monday the 23 of jan on wheres my refund i checked today and now it says my refund is processing and allow 3-4 weeks to get it the manual review is gone now GOODJanuary 31, 2017 at 12:07 pm #4155799
Thanks for the info! I just found this on the Oregon.gov site
So… Maybe us “early filers” went “manual review” because they can’t release our refunds until after the 15th? I sure hope it is just that! Fingers crossed!January 31, 2017 at 10:22 am #4155703
Looks like oregon is delaying till Feb 15th just like federal…January 30, 2017 at 10:10 am #4154977
Yes, not glad to see it is happening, but glad its not just me… I don’t think this will have much of an effect on anything or hold up anything.
It looks like that is just that standard message for most people or potentially a glitch. Last year, the exact same thing happened. I logged on to the website the day after it was accepted and it said “under manual review”, so I gave them a call and they said they didn’t see anything wrong with my return. A couple days after that it was approved and I had it in my bank. Last year, I actually got it in my bank account before the WMR tool updated to the 3rd bar.January 26, 2017 at 6:39 pm #4153228
Took 2 days to show up in the system and once it did, manual review. Dont think that matters or will delay anything though. But who knows :)January 25, 2017 at 7:06 pm #4152788
My Oregon refund is under manual review again… I claimed child care. That can be the only reason it is in review. I took it upon myself to submit all my child care canceled checks and my W2s online already. Maybe this year it won’t take the 5 months to process like last year.January 25, 2017 at 2:10 pm #4152668
I filed on 1/23/17, accepted 1/24/17. I just checked the status on the State of Oregon refund site and it shows that I am under manual review. I’ve never seen this message before! What is going on?! lol!January 24, 2017 at 5:14 pm #4152390
filed my taxes jan 4 got accepted fed on the 12 and state of Oregon on the of jan 23 2017 checked today the 24 know im under Manuel review wtfJanuary 24, 2017 at 12:31 pm #4152318
So, I filed my Oregon State Taxes on 1/12 and was Accepted 1/23. I filed HOH, Child Tax, EIC, Etc. but immediately after it was accepted, I logged on to the Oregon WMF tool and it already said “Under Manual Review” on bottom.
Is anybody else’s like this? I don’t see why it would go straight to Manual Review?! Ugh..January 3, 2017 at 9:33 pm #4150746
It’s January 3rd, 2017 and I have yet to receive my $120.00 state return.
https://revenueonline.dor.oregon.gov/tap/_/#1 says “Your return is currently being processed. Your refund or other information should be issued within three to four weeks unless your return is selected for further review.”
I’d like my return plus interest. What can I do?September 27, 2016 at 4:55 pm #4150546
Does Oregon even care that all this blogging and complaining about their legally due refunds are being ignored using a necessary manual filing review as an excuse to not give people back their entitled money? Funny that millions of pissed off people doesn’t even get them motivated.August 14, 2016 at 9:58 am #4150475
Same goes here – filed in early February, still waiting for my $323.
This is absurd. SOME of us plebeians rely on these chunks of change that the government wouldn’t notice either way!August 11, 2016 at 8:01 pm #4150471
Filed in April, still waiting in August. Whatever is going on with them is ridiculous.July 3, 2016 at 1:25 pm #4150435
I am in the same Manual Review group..been 4 months..I believe we all need to contact our representatives and go to the media..something is very wrongMay 16, 2016 at 12:46 am #4150332
Married filing jointly, mailed it in for Oregon refund in March. Certified mail was delivered March 23. From then until now (May 15) it still says, “we have not received.” Nothing about manual review, no request for information, nothing. I signed up for a web account on the website and when I check my information it says balance due is 0. It better be, we are getting a nice refund. I have been using Turbo Tax for years and this has never happened before. We normally file the state first for the refund we will use to pay the feds but this year it didn’t work out like it should, we had to withdraw from retirement.
Calling on the phone always results in a recording telling me call volume is too high, try later, and then it hangs up on me. Very frustrating.May 12, 2016 at 9:57 pm #4150323
I mailed mine in on 4/15. WMR says “We haven’t received a return that matches the entered information.” Anyone else experiencing this – ie, you mailed it in but WMR says they have received nothing??May 11, 2016 at 4:01 pm #4150319
Oregon, pull your head out and give us our money back. This is ridiculous!!!May 11, 2016 at 2:46 pm #4150317
I too am “under manual review” and never have had this before in Oregon. I wish The Oregonian or a news channel would get to the bottom of this!May 11, 2016 at 1:48 pm #4150315
Filed in early Feb, have been under review since, and its a little over $200. I am ready to tell OR IRS to just keep my money if they do not mess with me.May 4, 2016 at 12:52 pm #4150287
just fyi, my deposit hit my account today.
One day after switching from “your return is being processed, please allow 3-4 weeks….”May 3, 2016 at 1:46 pm #4150282
question for anyone still checking this page out.
Oreogn WMR has changed to
“Your return is currently being processed. Your refund or other information should be issued within three to four weeks unless your return is selected for further review.”
A while back I created a profile on the oregon WMR site. It was showing my account as -$704 (refund amount).
Now when I log into my profile, it says $0. Does that mean that they decided to take my money and they won’t be issuing me a refund?
Or does that mean they no longer owe me because they are processing the payment and will be sending my refund to me?
Thanks in advance.April 30, 2016 at 12:48 pm #4150273
wtf is going on here?
Files Jan. 26, so we’re at 14 weeks.
Any chance I can get my money from these lames?
I can’t possibly imagine what could be taking this long?April 28, 2016 at 10:43 am #4150261
I filed on Feb 11. Received my federal refund very promptly. The state owes me a $345 refund and I have not heard a single word. It’s just “Under manual review”. As someone else mentioned, the website keeps changing its time estimate from “8-10 weeks” to “10-12 weeks” and finally to “12 weeks or more”. This is insane! I would hope at some point legal action could be taken against the state for just deciding to keep people’s money. I’d better get interest in addition to the refund amount when they finally decide to pay me.
The one thing this has taught is to adjust my withholdings. I will not over pay the state a single penny next year.April 27, 2016 at 2:42 pm #4150257
I filed my return on January 28th and still nothing. Status in WMR said 12 weeks for manual review. I called a few weeks ago and they sent out a letter requesting more information on my child care expenses, however they sent the letter to an address I haven’t live at in over 3 years. My current/correct address is ON my return so not sure why they sent it there, not only that but they didn’t send the letter until March 16th. I gave them all my information and was told last week (I’ve been calling a couple of times a week now) that I should expect to see it no later than the end of April. I called today and am now being told that once they receive the requested information it’s ANOTHER 12 weeks from that date. Total crap. It seems different people will give you different information.April 26, 2016 at 5:26 pm #4150251
Well i did mine around 01/20/2016 and here we are now . . . not 10. . . not 12. . . BUT 14 WEEKS and STILL manual review. I did get the verification quiz and did it right away and STILL nothing. They don’t answer the phone or respond to e-mail either. We are literally about to complete an entire third of the year and they are STILL trying to figure things out. . . of course for our benefit though I’m sure.April 25, 2016 at 4:54 pm #4150238
Anyone that filed before Feb 15th still waiting? I noticed that the average time for manual review is around 80 days as long as they don’t need any more info… It seems like ppl that had to do an identity verification quiz got there refunds way faster then those of us that didn’t actually need any info sent… I received an email saying my refund is in the final stages of processing what ever that BS means.April 25, 2016 at 3:51 pm #4150236
I mailed my state taxes in mid-March. WMR says they haven’t received anything. Shouldn’t it at least say “processing” if they have received my tax return? How long should I wait before resending the docs (maybe online next time!)
