Took my documents in person to the OTR tax office yesterday. God willing I will get my refund at the lastest by next week. They say there is no backlog. They are consistently working on returns. So its whenever they get to yours.March 19, 2019 at 6:20 pm #4317795Veryfustrated
Took my docunents in perdon to OTR Tax office yesterday. Waited 2 hours to see a representative. Only took 3 minutes to review my documents. She said to call or check status by Monday. There is no backlog they work on them when they get to my return. So God willing I will get my refund before or no later than next week.March 19, 2019 at 2:29 pm #4317350GiveMeMyMoney
@Candy E Go on Facebook and instant message them. That’s how I got in contact with them. They called me a few hours later put your first and last name and your number and they will call you.March 19, 2019 at 7:17 am #4317489kds2107
Filled my return on 1/31–it was finally processed yesterday.
After repeatedly, frustratingly calling the OTR–and receiving messages of ‘wait a week…a few days…25 days…just a bit longer’ for the past month, I randomly sent a message to the OTR through mytaxdc.gov regarding the status of my submission. See below for the response I received an hour later:
Received: Monday, Mar 18, 2019 3:35:34 PM
Subject: RE: Status of Tax Return
Thank you for contacting e-Services.
Your refund has been approved, please allow 3-5 business days from today to receive it in your bank account.
Good luck!March 19, 2019 at 6:25 am #4317485Bravo
@givememymoney I definitely understand. I did it last Monday and it was approved by last Friday. I had to get it mailed because of a new address but it shouldn’t take long. Hoping I see it by Wednesday.March 19, 2019 at 12:57 am #4317349GiveMeMyMoney
@Bravo same here filed 1/31 just got the id verify passcode today so hopefully, I get it this week. When did you do yours do you remember which day? I Don’t mean to pry I’m just trying to get an idea of when I’ll get my money seeing as though we waited sooooo long this year!March 18, 2019 at 2:01 pm #4316819Candy E.
I’ve been trying to call DC OTR since this morning and I keep getting this recording that all lines are busy try back later.
Is this for real? I have never experienced this before with any government agency. They don’t even give you an option of dialing an extension.March 18, 2019 at 1:30 pm #4316806Bravo
@givememymoney I filed on 1/31 then had to do an identity verification quiz last week. According to previous posts, the amount going to 0 means it’s been sent. No deposit yet though.March 18, 2019 at 11:05 am #4316722GiveMeMyMoney
@Bravo when did you file?March 18, 2019 at 9:31 am #4316685Bravo
My balance when I log in has gone to 0 as opposed to showing my refund amount. Does this mean it is about to be deposited?March 16, 2019 at 6:55 am #4314368Veryfustrated
After 25 Business Days DC just sent me a letter adking for documents for my EIC which is crazy because I didn’t make any money. The letter was written on March 8th just received today and tgey are giving me to Marvh 23rd to comply. I was told I can bri g documents in person insyead of mail. All they could say was they wete sorry it took so long. Yeah right you only had my return since Feb 8th.March 15, 2019 at 1:11 pm #4315148Paul P.
I was accepted 1/31 and still nothing. Very annoyingMarch 15, 2019 at 12:45 pm #4315128Candy E.
Do anyone know what’s going on with DC and the tax refunds? This is ridiculous!!!! I’ve been waiting since February 6 when t was accepted. Their system tells me to wait and check back in 10 days. Then I saw something about waiting 25 days. I even gave them a day for the snow day we were closed and e holiday. How long must I wait now?March 13, 2019 at 12:03 pm #4312823Queen
I been waiting Since January 25 And Still Nothing! What’s Going On??March 13, 2019 at 2:49 am #4312622Jade

Today is officially 25 business days and still nothing. I’ve seen folks on another forum confirm receipt of their tax refund but nothing on this side.March 8, 2019 at 7:39 am #4310556Veryfustrated
GiveMeMyMoney; unfortunately, he just got divorced so that is all the information he has. DC needs to be reported publicly for holding our monies. This is not right. 25 Business days is March 13th for me. I will let you all know if I get my refund. Has anyone received any money from DC.? We need to hear from youMarch 7, 2019 at 10:26 pm #4310444Y Easton
Maybe we will have our state taxes by Christmas because thats how long it seems. I never experienced this ever. Im being patient and im like come on.March 7, 2019 at 1:18 pm #4310210Queen
This Has Got To Be A Joke! Where Is Our MoneyMarch 7, 2019 at 11:56 am #4310137Kiwi
I just called again and now they saying due to there new system reviews go deeper so i said if i bring in all my supporting documents would that do anything even tho yall not requesting nothing and she said yes if you need your money now that would be your best bet 😑😑March 6, 2019 at 2:19 pm #4309777GiveMeMyMoney
@Veryfustrated did he say when she filed? And was it a lot? I think the more you got back the longer they gonna hold it.March 6, 2019 at 11:20 am #4309705Kiwi
I filed 1/31 so 25 days been passed im confused.March 6, 2019 at 4:43 am #4309596Veryfustrated
Was just told by a friend his daughter got her dc tax check 2 days ago (Monday). Finally, DC has started giving refunds. They held back everyone’s refund to accrue interest off of our monies. That just isn’t right. I pray God deals with them. Alot of people needed there money during these troubled times.March 6, 2019 at 4:32 am #4309595Y Easton
I spoke with. A representative yesterday and she told me I had to wait 25 Business days. Im like what? I never waited this long before.March 5, 2019 at 7:12 pm #4309481Queen
I talked to a rep today! They said they started processing feb 25 and will won’t see our money until April! Now who lying???March 5, 2019 at 2:09 pm #4309369Lulu f.
Just got off the phone with the rep. She said that refunds are finally being “kicked out this week”. It seems as if you have to wait the entire 25 BUSINESS DAYS. Before they will issue a refund. Hopefully, she was telling me the truth. Hopefully we’ll start to see movement this week.March 5, 2019 at 9:47 am #4309239Veryfustrated
I filed Feb 6th. DC told me 14 business days. Ladt week called and it changed to 25 business days but the person said don’t quote me on that. What does that mean. Its over 30 days. Its March got my Fed in exactly 21 days with an EIC. Has anyone received DC tax yet?March 2, 2019 at 2:40 pm #4308251GreaterisHe

Mines been processing since 2/1/2019 and just this week I was told that they have to process everyone’s taxes for 4-6 weeks before they can start issuing return 😡😡😡 my 4 weeks was yesterday and is still saying processing check basin 7-10 business days 🤦🏽♀️ I haven’t received any notices in the mail eitherMarch 1, 2019 at 5:38 pm #4307669T.

Did anyone receive their refund today?February 26, 2019 at 7:24 am #4303715Jade
Thanks for the update about DC not processing refunds until 3-1. And I agree that their WMR message should just say so!February 26, 2019 at 5:59 am #4303466Lulu f.
Wow DC! Why have a message that says check back 7-10 days, they know that’s inaccurate. If they communicated better we wouldn’t have to call and wonder. It also doesn’t help when the DC OTR reps just want to get you off the phone. Shame on them this year!February 25, 2019 at 8:33 am #4301238Kiwi
My dd for my federal is 2/27 filed 1/31 called DCmultiple times and was told finally today they are not processing no refunds until 3/1 😑February 25, 2019 at 6:16 am #4301048Y Easton
I got my federal and my DDD was for 2/27 wow. Still processing for state. Wow DC!February 23, 2019 at 2:17 pm #4298815Jade
Still haven’t received my DC tax refund. Already got federal. Anybody know what’s going on with DC this year?February 23, 2019 at 7:20 am #4297835Y Easton

Talk to a service agents at the office of tax and revenue’s today and was told it can take up to four weeks to process first was told its up to 14 days like the website says then told three weeks now 4 to 6 weeks for processing in dcFebruary 21, 2019 at 8:43 am #4289903Y Easton
Still waiting. It still says processing check back 7- 10 business days. It’s been way past that and no change. What is going on. Maybe it will never change like last year. It stayed processing and they deposited my refund on 2/21/ 2018. So hoping for the best!February 20, 2019 at 2:56 pm #4287200Jade
Been waiting for DC to deposit my refund since January 28. The tax portal shows my refund amount in green. As already noted, once the refund amount shows 0, they have sent the direct deposit.February 20, 2019 at 9:11 am #4285955Lulu f.
Nothing yet for me. I created an account on DC OTR portal. Shows processed and refund amount in green. No letters have been sent out. After looking at prior years, when the balance shows $0 means refund has been sent. I recommend that everyone creates an account to make sure you have no letters coming in the mail. Can you all provide updates of what you see?
