No changes, just says processed. (just wanted to update in case anyone is following lol)February 1, 2019 at 9:09 am #4255451
Mine showed it was processed yesterday but says the refund hasn’t been issued yet.January 31, 2019 at 1:47 pm #4255019
@AB I filed 1/23/19 accepted 1/28/19. Last year I had my state money direct deposit on 2/13/18. So hopefully it wont be end of Feb. like they are claiming.January 31, 2019 at 11:23 am #4254949
For the people who show that their state has processed, do you mind me asking when did you file and what day did it show processed? Mine keeps saying no return on file and it’s bugging me lolJanuary 30, 2019 at 10:54 pm #4254705
I just looked and last year I got my state refund on Feb 27th, so i’m expecting the same this year. :(
Arkansas used to be so quick with issuing refunds in years past. Oh well.January 30, 2019 at 10:44 pm #4254689
Wow that’s crazy but I think they will start issuing before end of Feb.January 30, 2019 at 8:05 pm #4254557
I called today was told they will not start issuing refunds till the last week of FebruaryJanuary 30, 2019 at 7:31 pm #4254530
Has ark started release money yetJanuary 30, 2019 at 11:10 am #4254268
It took 5-6 weeks after that message last year. For me.January 30, 2019 at 9:46 am #4254211
RC I got the same message today.
This is my 1st time in AR, and wondering how long after this processed message until the refund is sent.January 30, 2019 at 9:38 am #4254205
I got this message : “Your return was processed on 1/29/2019 5:57:15 PM but your refund has not been issued. Please allow additional time for your refund to be issued. Identity Theft has been a growing problem nationally and the Department is taking additional measures to ensure tax refunds are issued to the correct individuals. These additional measures may result in tax refunds not being issued as quickly as in past years.”
Is this a good or bad message?January 29, 2019 at 6:47 pm #4254028
Got the message about no record found for my SSN. Neat…. Maybe next week, I guess.January 29, 2019 at 5:51 pm #4254012
Same here. Got ‘no record’ the very first time, and then ‘too many attempts’. Same thing after 24 hoursJanuary 29, 2019 at 5:35 pm #4254003
I am. It either gives the too many attempts message or no record found.January 29, 2019 at 11:52 am #4253893
It’s that time again… lol, I’m over the Arkansas website. Any time I try to check refund status, I get the error that I’ve exceeded my attempts blah blah blah, like even on my first attempt. i just want to know they’ve received it. Anyone else having this issue?January 17, 2019 at 11:38 am #4251918
👋🏻March 15, 2018 at 11:15 am #4239974
Received a text the 14th says my refund was released on the 13th and I should get it in 7 to 10 days. So now just waiting for it to hit my emerald card.March 14, 2018 at 9:06 am #4239571
Nothing here either.. been well over 5 weeksMarch 8, 2018 at 1:44 pm #4237561
Still waiting. It’s been over 6 weeks since it was processed.March 8, 2018 at 7:54 am #4237282
Still waiting…March 6, 2018 at 8:08 pm #4236537
my atap account just zeroed out so I am assuming i should get the text tonight or tomorrow and a deposit a few days from now. So finally some movement.March 2, 2018 at 5:39 pm #4234638
still nothing on my end either, been well over a month now. I’ll give it till monday and then I am calling.March 1, 2018 at 10:50 am #4233772
OK…so I just called and spoke to a nice lady named Jada. She pulled up my information and advised me that tax season started 1-29 and anything filed before then was not being recognized or released in their system. Now, this makes no sense to me as H&R Block program knew that and held my return for filing on 1-29 even though I completed it 1-26. But, Jada told me she would forward mine on for review and that process would take about a week and then it would be released a couple of days after that. My suggestion is for anybody that is still waiting to call as yours may somehow be hung up in the system for some reason. My hold time was only about 10 minutes. I hope you all get Jada or somebody else that is as nice as she is.February 28, 2018 at 9:33 am #4232983
Processed 1/25, still no refund. One friend was processed a day or two later and got his last week. Another friend’s processed at the beginning of February and got hers around 2 weeks ago.
Makes sense.February 27, 2018 at 10:06 am #4232142
Got the email last night, deposit this morning. Hope the rest of you get yours soon. See you next year!February 27, 2018 at 9:27 am #4232120
Processed 01-23-18. Still waiting…February 27, 2018 at 12:08 am #4231920
@FoodieCW Honestly I am starting to think that they just throw them all in a hat and start processing them as they pull the darn things out. I fled and was accepted on 1/22 and I am still waiting . My boyfriend filed 1/26 but didn’t get accepted until 1/29 but just got his text this morning that stated his refund was sent on 2/25. He is getting a check so whenever it gets here he will have his finally.February 26, 2018 at 11:00 pm #4231893
Received text at 8pm that my refund was issued 2/25 and should have in 7-10 Days. Filed on 2/1.February 25, 2018 at 12:20 pm #4231102
Posted on 1/23 and over a month later and no news, deploying soon and I need the money for my family, I hate this state, just venting a bit :(February 25, 2018 at 10:49 am #4231080
So, do they not issues refunds in the order of processing? I submitted on 1-26 and was processed on 1-30. I have received nothing. I think I saw where Lioness was processed on 2-1 and she received on 2-24. Anybody have ideas on this? Also, about 3 weeks after I was processed I signed up for the text alert. Do you guys think that may also cause a delay?February 24, 2018 at 4:20 am #4230656
Still nothing but the Boyfriends positive balance is gone now, so he should get an update that it has mailed. Mine however is still sitting there….mocking me.
@lioness not that federal was that much for me this year but I totally get ya, it is 70% gone in two days lol. On the bright side a lot of necessary crap that has been in neglect was taken care of and being broke was worth lightening the burden.February 24, 2018 at 12:18 am #4230618
Woke up this morning to my state….it’s gone now!February 23, 2018 at 5:04 pm #4230507
@Lioness YAY glad you got a date. I am still waiting lol at this point it I’m like when it gets here it gets here.
@Rick Last year it was 9 days after the positive balance was gone that I got my deposit if that helps at all.
@Singlemom in Ar Arkansas does not allow fees to be collected from your refund for tax preparation. I have no idea why but they send a paper check when you elect to have fees removed from your federal return.February 23, 2018 at 10:19 am #4230157
Still no e-mail or deposit. I looked at my atap tax account, and the positive balance is gone.February 23, 2018 at 9:46 am #4230104
SingleMom in AR
Why are some refunds DD and some in checks? My federal was DD.February 23, 2018 at 9:43 am #4230096
SingleMom in AR
Got an email this morning. Refund issues on 2/21. I got my federal yesterday too, so I believe they are in cahoots. LolFebruary 23, 2018 at 9:08 am #4230049
Still waiting on state. Filed 1/31, accepted 2/1.February 22, 2018 at 11:14 pm #4229870
Just got my message saying the funds was issued on 02/21 and to allow 5 to 7 days….blah blah blah….Hope my money is in the bank tomorrow!February 22, 2018 at 10:17 am #4229338
@AB that is great, have fun and don’t spend it all in one place ;)
I got my federal, half spent on bills and what not and the rest is in savings awaiting it siblings from the state lol. Still nothing from state for me or the boyfriend.February 22, 2018 at 10:09 am #4229326
Well, I hope I didn’t just flub up. I just now signed up for the text alert. I am wondering if that gives them something else to research for identity theft (making sure # matches up to person) and will delay it even more. I hope not. As somebody else pointed out, my information has been the same for the last 22 years. Happy and jealous for AB today. 😜February 22, 2018 at 8:39 am #4229206
The deposit was in my account this morning for state and federal both. Thank goodness! It’s been very nice to have others to discuss our situations with. I appreciate it! Good luck and I hope you get that text soon!!!February 22, 2018 at 8:07 am #4229166
@Lioness Yeah same, no state for me either!February 22, 2018 at 7:04 am #4229044
Got my federal….don’t have state.February 21, 2018 at 10:51 pm #4228347
@AB congrats let us know when you get it, were still waiting but that gives some hope.February 21, 2018 at 7:07 pm #4228020
Just got my text saying my refund was issued 2/20 and allow 7-10 days to receive. Finally!!!February 21, 2018 at 5:24 pm #4227814
Dang guys my cousin hasn’t received hers yet either. I don’t know whats going on but this is insane. I’ll be back to check on you guys tomorrow maybe you will have double deposits, that would be great.February 21, 2018 at 10:20 am #4226950
I know I called just a few mins ago and was told three to four weeks. I explained that 4 weeks was up for me yesterday as I filed and was accepted the 22nd of January. I agree with you both I never feel relived until it is all done.
I can’t complain at least I will have some cash to do some birthday stuff this weekend.February 21, 2018 at 10:08 am #4226901
My federal will be there tomorrow too, but I’m with you. I want both and I want to be done with taxes for the year lol!!!!!! guess i’ll wait another couple of days before I call and harass them.February 21, 2018 at 9:54 am #4226852
I’m suppose to receive my federal tomorrow but I’m not going to be satisfied until I have received both!February 21, 2018 at 9:51 am #4226846
I talked to a lady that said that they plan to release majority of the funds this week and to keep checking back. I told her that mine had been processed since the 1st , how long exactly is the wait? She said typically 3 to 4 weeks…….ughhhhh this is my 4th week where’s my money?February 21, 2018 at 8:33 am #4226693
I messaged yesterday and was told we are on the last of the security check and check back in a week or so. I totally don’t understand because our information hasn’t changed in 15 plus years!!February 21, 2018 at 7:57 am #4226602
@Lioness I’m on the verge of calling myself! Trying to be patient and not though lol. Keep me posted on what you find out!February 21, 2018 at 7:41 am #4226564
Ok …something is wrong! I still don’t have anything, I’ve been trying to stay calm but I’m calling!February 20, 2018 at 7:46 pm #4225815
No magic message yet…..fingers crossed thoughFebruary 20, 2018 at 11:43 am #4225162
Nothing for me today yet either, I’m holding out hope for this evening since most people I know that got the text got it in the evening. My bank doesn’t show federal but then again, it never shows pending anything. it will just be in the bank the day they receive it and will say pending but will let me spend it still lol.February 20, 2018 at 11:07 am #4225090
Nothing today so far but it is still early. I can see my federal pending in my bank but of course they will hold it till like 2am on the 22nd.
I am more confused than worried, I know they are done with the darn thing because I owed the state 36 bucks and my return was for 414 and when I log into the ATP I see a positive balance of 378. Meaning they already even took the offset off the total. I figured they would hold them until the 15th like federal was doing, however I have seen friends and family with the same credits who filed after me already spent theirs lol.
I mean it is not like I am scared that I am not going to get it, I just like to monitor the process to make sure if I need to take action I can in a timely manner.February 19, 2018 at 10:10 pm #4224577
It’ll probably be Wednesday when we see our stateFebruary 19, 2018 at 12:15 pm #4224158
I’d be less impatient if they’d just give me a date… It’s the unknown, that bothers me. but we know they won’t be issuing any today. so guess we’ll see what tomorrow holds.February 19, 2018 at 11:33 am #4224129
I seriously don’t see how it would help, seems to be doing more harm than helping. I can imagine that it has increased the already high call volume resulting in more hours and more staff.February 18, 2018 at 8:46 pm #4223795
I’m wondering if this new tax law is actually helping them catch people or giving them more time to play with our money? I mean, have they caught anyone yet?February 18, 2018 at 11:50 am #4223519
I’m not patient. LolFebruary 17, 2018 at 8:55 pm #4223116
@sunriselops Honestly I don’t think they update on weekends, we all know how cheap Arkansas can be. However I am not 100% on that.February 17, 2018 at 8:52 pm #4223113
Looks like we won’t be seeing anything now until after the weekend and Holiday. Oh well, here is to holding out for next week. I will start calling if I don’t update next week because I will be at 4 weeks on the 20th. I feel oddly patient this year…February 17, 2018 at 4:01 pm #4222885
DDD for 22nd on federal also….February 17, 2018 at 3:48 pm #4222871
Does anyone know when they update the Where’s my refund? Do they update on the weekends?February 17, 2018 at 1:23 pm #4222685
Got a DDD for the 22nd as well for federal, so that’s good news. Sucks that AR is taking so long though.February 17, 2018 at 9:01 am #4222299
Nothing. Did get federal DDD of the 22nd also, so that’s a plusFebruary 17, 2018 at 8:15 am #4222209
nothing this morning changed for me either, what did they do process a few and then take a vacation?
On the other hand I got my federal DDD this morning in the update as expected for 2/22.February 17, 2018 at 7:42 am #4222142
Nothing nothing NOTHINGFebruary 16, 2018 at 8:56 pm #4221346
I give up. 😑 No magical text tonight like I was so hoping.February 16, 2018 at 3:10 pm #4220783
@Lioness Nothing today either. I just checked mine and the boyfriend checked his and the balance is still sitting there. The only reason I use that as a guide is I have always seen the balance and then it will be zeroed out and usually the following day I get the deposit or a day or so later. I been pretty much getting up and checking and then checking before I go to bed. Trying to get an idea of what to expect each year and yanno it will work for a few years and then the system changes and we have to figure out the new formula all over again lol.
I have mine going direct deposit and there is nothing in future view (I can see my pay checks 4 days ahead with it) and We will have a bit longer wait on the boyfriends because his will be paper check as he had fees deducted with TT and they don’t allow DD when you do that with AR state returns.
@sunriselops It does seem to be how it has went for many of us here. However I have seen others get theirs in about two weeks but my three weeks was the 12th as mine says it was finished the 22nd of Jan.
As far as Federal goes I expect a update with a DDD tonight after midnight when the system updates because the path message was gone as of last nights update and replaced with the amount back and went back to the processing message. I just can’t view transcripts because I use prepaid cell and checking so no credit for me.February 16, 2018 at 3:06 pm #4220780
Nothing for me todayFebruary 16, 2018 at 2:42 pm #4220771
@sunriselops YesFebruary 16, 2018 at 1:19 pm #4220668
I filed and accepted 23rd. Had the processed on 24th message since then and still today. This morning DD hit my account.February 16, 2018 at 10:40 am #4220495
I just called the state and they said it could take 3 to 4 weeks after your processing date to get your refund. Has that been true for everyone?
