@Lioness yes here we are again walking that long green PATH lol. Have you tried calling yet 😂😂jk.
Can someone let us know when they receive state refund please. Thanks!Bellacourbee
I filed on the 2nd of February and they processed on the 13th and still not released. I don’t understand.
Mailed 6th and they processed on the 21st. Mind you it was mailed from the same city it was going to. -.-Ashley
When did you file?
nevermind i figured it all out
It finally is showing processed. Does it ever show an amount? Or tell you that you are approved or anything like that?
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.
@ashley my state posted but my feeeral hasn’t and I had a DDD of today.Ashley
Federal was deposited this morning but still no state. Ugh
Woke up around 3AM and state has finally deposited. Good luck to everyone else!
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.Ashley
Called and got a rude lady telling me I’ll just have to wait. Boy that’s helpful.
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 2/17
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!sunriselops
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.Ashley
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. 😐😐😑😑
Nothing as of 9AM. It’s been two weeks. I’ve never waited this long for a state return.
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? lolAshley
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.
@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!Ashley
Really hoping I don’t have to call again. I hate sitting on hold for so long. Hopefully it will come tomorrow.
If you don’t get it Monday you should call.
Another week of nothing.Ashley
Still no change in the message and still no refunds. 😠Broke and impatient
It was finally here today good luck to all. Paper check. Sent the 13th. Processed the 31st, filed the 28th.Crabby@crabby
My refund status hasn’t changed yet, but my refund just showed up in my account. Hope this helps.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?Ashley
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?
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.
Well I guess that make since because mines wasn’t much.Ashley
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.
I know guys they are moving very slow this year. Hang in there. If it’s been over ten days from being processed you may want to give them a call.Ashley
I still have absolutely nothing. The little generic message is getting old. Accepted on the 30th, you think we would know something by now.
@Lioness yay! Your so welcome. This site keeps me sane as well…lol. congratulations!
@shamrock Yayyyyy, I finally got it. Thanks for keeping me sane! Now for the federal…..BLH
Finally received DD around midnight.
Processed: 2/7 2:30PM
We did have an issue with having to fax them some paperwork, but all was good by 2/7.
State usually comes so quick, especially with DD. Hoping for this afternoon or tomorrow morning.
And state website stiil says generic message. Hope this helps.
Received DD this morning.
Filed 1/23, accepted on 1/25, Where my refund says processed on 1/25 @ 7:10p.m., I called last Thursday and they told me that my return did not process until 1/30, even though the state website says 1/25. She told me 10 buisness days. I still have not recieved DD. Guessing tomorrow maybe. Wanted to put this on here so everyone knows that sometimes the process date on website is not right. Especially @Lioness, might wanna call and see what day they really processed ur return. Hope this helps!!!!BLH
Your return was processed on 1/30/2017 7:41:47 PM. Please allow additional time for issued refunds. 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.
If you have additional questions please contact us at (501) 682-1100 or toll free at 1-800-882-9275
I have not received a DD yet!Ashley
Got accepted on the 30th. I still have had no change in the generic message. This is aggravating.Crabby@crabby
I filed and was accepted on Feb 1. As of this afternoon no information except the generic message that it will take longer this year. I hope it is soon. Good luck all:)Darbie Brown
State return accepted 1/30 just got DD about 10 mins ago.
@Lioness it’s been 10 days from the 30th maybe you should call.
Once again, nothing!
Looking for a dd tomorrow
I filed mine on the 1st of Feb, accepted 2/4. When I log in to my atp I see the return done and the balance on my account shows the refund amount I was expecting but no DD yet and the account still shows the balance sitting on my tax account.Motherof3children@motherof3children
New to this but i filed 1/31 accepted same day and nothing just same generic msg
@Lioness don’t give up. I thought I had my state refunds coming as dd but after I looked over my forms I didn’t have my bank info for ddd. So it came in the mail. Don’t give up!
@Lioness I forgot to mention my check was dated 2/7/17.
@Lioness my money was in the mail today maybe yours will be as well.
Ugh, each year the IRS find new ways to make tax time stressful!
@Tashag congratulations! Thank you for the update. Maybe we will see ours tomorrow or Saturday.Tashag
Finally got mine, it’s dated for 2/5/17.
@Lioness NOTHING 😢
@Lioness I will definitely update you as soon as I get home from work. I’m hoping it’s there but not holding my breath the way things have been going. Ugh!
@Lioness yes me too I could use it right about now. My coworker received hers in the mail today. Bummer!Tashag
No check today either
No money in the mail for me today 😢Cathy
Filed and accepted 1/23 check came in today’s mail
@Lioness same here!
Accepted 1/23 DD arrived today.
I think they’re waiting until the 15th tooTashag
Shame on Arkansas, After I was told mine was released on Thursday I have yet to receive it as of today. Mine is a paper check.CASEY
I spoke to the refund office this morning and they informed me that it should be release in 10 business days (this is close to the 15th so i think they are following federals lead).
@Lioness well I guess if they want to get technical it would be the 9th or the 10. Ugh!
