State taxes dropped overnight! No update on the sight or anything. Just appeared. Filed 1/26 and accepted 1/29. Good luck to all this morning and I’ll see you on the long PATH!February 7, 2018 at 11:37 am #4208557
I called the # on the page that says my refund has been processed but not sent, asked the lady there what this message meant as I had not ever seen it in previous years, she advised me that it started last year and that they won’t be issuing refunds till the 3rd or 4th week of February.February 7, 2018 at 9:22 am #4208307
Any updates for anyone yet?February 6, 2018 at 11:05 am #4207157
I noticed the link to sign up for email alerts this morning too. I think it’s new because I don’t recall that being an option before. I honestly think that AR is walking the “PATH” this year too cause they’re usually so fast. I just filed, so my wait hasn’t been long, but my sis has been waiting since the 23rd.February 6, 2018 at 8:46 am #4206931
Did you guys see where you can enter your email or phone number to receive a notice when your AR refund will be issued? Once you put in the information on the state inquiry page hit the “next” button at the bottom and it will take you to that screen. Mine was processed on the 29th but I still have nothing; however, I did receive my federal refund today. 😊 Good luck to all!February 5, 2018 at 7:14 pm #4206502
Although I see different states posting they received refund. Unfortnately I dont think we’re going to see any deposits until next week.February 5, 2018 at 2:36 am #4205761
@Lioness I am the same way. Not in a hurry to get it because it is already spent when it gets here on home repairs and car tags.February 4, 2018 at 8:02 pm #4205654
I some how feel more patient this year.February 3, 2018 at 11:18 pm #4205282
I don’t know if it means they are holding it till Mid February or not but I know last year it seemed to take longer. I got federal last year before state and that was the first time that had ever happened. I know in this very thread from last year I stated that for over a week I could see the positive balance sitting in my tax account because it was done and credited but not removed and paid until I would say two weeks after I saw it there. The stupid tracker was of no help last year either, it would tell me that they were done but when I called I was told they were not ready and about 10 other unrelated answers by some of the rudest people. I think last year was about 17 days total from filing to getting paid. Good luck to everyone this year, I just got the Path message on Federal today finally.February 3, 2018 at 12:56 pm #4204986February 3, 2018 at 12:31 pm #4204975
Your return was processed on 2/1/2018 5:46:55 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.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY SAYING? Are they holding the state until mid February too?February 3, 2018 at 1:38 am #4204504
Both mine and the Boyfriends have been processed but both have this message:

I talked to my bank today and they said they received a ton of state taxes and are in the process of processing them. Maybe we’ll see something tomorrow or Monday?February 2, 2018 at 3:28 pm #4204098February 2, 2018 at 3:26 pm #4204096February 2, 2018 at 2:36 pm #4204044
Filed and accepted 1/29 and waiting on state first before the long PATH ends and get the federal DD!
Nice to see you again this year @shamrock @lionessFebruary 1, 2018 at 6:57 pm #4203248
@Lioness yes here we are again walking that long green PATH lol. Have you tried calling yet 😂😂jk.February 1, 2018 at 6:13 pm #4203214January 30, 2018 at 11:35 am #4201378
Can someone let us know when they receive state refund please. Thanks!February 24, 2017 at 9:25 am #4186053
I filed on the 2nd of February and they processed on the 13th and still not released. I don’t understand.February 24, 2017 at 4:53 am #4185936
Mailed 6th and they processed on the 21st. Mind you it was mailed from the same city it was going to. -.-February 23, 2017 at 6:17 pm #4185781
When did you file?February 23, 2017 at 5:16 pm #4185747
nevermind i figured it all outFebruary 23, 2017 at 4:43 pm #4185726
It finally is showing processed. Does it ever show an amount? Or tell you that you are approved or anything like that?February 23, 2017 at 4:02 pm #4185706
That’s so crazy I’ve always gotten my state before federal but I guess since this new law has everything and everybody screwed up.February 23, 2017 at 3:56 pm #4185697
@ashley my state posted but my feeeral hasn’t and I had a DDD of today.February 23, 2017 at 10:21 am #4185428
Federal was deposited this morning but still no state. UghFebruary 23, 2017 at 4:26 am #4185101
Woke up around 3AM and state has finally deposited. Good luck to everyone else!February 22, 2017 at 11:22 pm #4184885
I’m still waiting, I filed 2/4, it showed proccessed and the positive balance of $374 sitting in my arkansas taxpayer account as of 2/6. From 2/6 to 2/16 it sat there in my tax account. On 2/17 my tax account showed zero, I am assuming they sent it because I didn’t owe any debts this year. I elected direct deposit but still nothing in my account or pending. I have my Federal Return releasing to me tonight after midnight so I dunno. I have never in 15 years have had my Federal before my state tax return…this year it looks like it is going that way.February 22, 2017 at 11:07 am #4183709
Called and got a rude lady telling me I’ll just have to wait. Boy that’s helpful.February 22, 2017 at 9:34 am #4183514
Called state at 8AM this morning. 15 minute wait. At first she told me to give them up to four weeks of BUSINESS days for me to receive my refund. Once she actually keyed in my info she told me the refund had been approved on 2/17 and to expect it to post in 7-10 business days. Which would put my 10 day mark at 3/3. She told me it had been released to my bank and now they just have to post it. Needless to say I’ll be calling the bank at 9 AM. Will update if anything changes. Hope this helps!
DDD 7-10 business days from 2/17February 21, 2017 at 5:38 pm #4182309
I’m at the 10 business days mark I believe. So hopefully this week? It’s ridiculous this year.
I called too and they told me my return had been processed but my refund was still processing and the generic everything is taking longer this year to prevent fraud.
I’m just saying, it’s all worked really well for me in the past, what was so wrong with how it was before? Why did they have to “fix” it? So frustrating.
Still nothing as of 4:30. Will update again in the morning. Fingers crossed for us all!February 21, 2017 at 2:27 pm #4181924
I called the state this morning and after being on hold for 20 mins, I was told that my return has been processed but refunds are taking longer this year. I was given a time frame or anything….just that it is going to take longer this year.February 21, 2017 at 2:24 pm #4181915
Called this morning they said that it had to be 14 BUSINESS days after its accepted. I told them it has been, she transfers me to a supervisor who says give it another week and a half. 😐😐😑😑February 21, 2017 at 10:48 am #4181419
Nothing as of 9AM. It’s been two weeks. I’ve never waited this long for a state return.February 20, 2017 at 7:50 pm #4180351
We mailed ours in over two weeks ago, they still have not “received” it. Does it really take this long? I am wondering if I should resend it in, no clue whats going on. Every time we call we are just told, wait 10 weeks, wait wait , keep waiting, wait some more. Hasnt the Fed made us wait long enough? lolFebruary 20, 2017 at 4:02 pm #4180293
I completely forgot that the banks are closed today. Mom brain at its finest lol
Hopefully we will see something tomorrow. I hate waiting all this time just to make sure everything is in order.February 20, 2017 at 2:20 pm #4180186
@Ashley I’m in the same boat you are. Still nothing today, but the banks are closed. Fingers crossed for tomorrow! Will update either way tomorrow. Good luck!February 19, 2017 at 10:43 pm #4179628
Really hoping I don’t have to call again. I hate sitting on hold for so long. Hopefully it will come tomorrow.February 19, 2017 at 9:14 am #4179197
If you don’t get it Monday you should call.February 19, 2017 at 9:13 am #4179195
Another week of nothing.February 17, 2017 at 10:36 am #4175639
Still no change in the message and still no refunds. 😠February 16, 2017 at 5:55 pm #4174131
Broke and impatient
It was finally here today good luck to all. Paper check. Sent the 13th. Processed the 31st, filed the 28th.February 16, 2017 at 1:58 am #4172601
My refund status hasn’t changed yet, but my refund just showed up in my account. Hope this helps.February 15, 2017 at 11:02 pm #4172296
Broke and impatient
My ar state refund says it was processed the 31st. Which means it’s done processing so I’m wondering why I still haven’t had a message change on the atap site and still haven’t seen the check. It seems like this is longer than it should be, and seems like it has never taken so long. It’s not even that much and the is no info changes from last year. Anyone get a paper check after they got a processed message with no change to the message?February 15, 2017 at 9:49 am #4171143
We opted for direct deposit so you think we would know something by now. Did you guys ever have a different message then the generic one or did it stay that way until you got your check or deposit?February 14, 2017 at 8:11 pm #4170482
This new security stuff is annoying, I know somehow it is worth it but I tell ya I have never waited this long for state, even when mailed a paper check.February 14, 2017 at 6:36 pm #4170396
Well I guess that make since because mines wasn’t much.February 14, 2017 at 6:15 pm #4170380
It’s been more than 10 days. We called yesterday and they said there was no problems with it. That larger amounts may take longer, but that ours is okay. They still couldn’t give me any dates though.
