    I still have not received my refund. It updated last week now it says allow it time to fully process. I thought the same thing like they don’t have the money. I know people who received their fed and state at the same time this year.

    The state asked for my AGI before sending my refund… I got a letter back, that I think said they owed me my refund. I am still waiting. I have already got my Indiana and Federal back…. no issues. This must be their “extra security measures” . Where’s my refund obviously doesn’t get updated.

    Filed on Feb 3rd. Received Federal refund 3 weeks ago. Illinois wheres my refund says still processing. Who knows? State of Illinois is broke probably checking change in couch cushions to send out tax refunds. Website says they are taking extra antifraud precautions. I say they are trying to find reasons to lessen the refunds! State of Illinois government stinks.

    If anybody has gotten the message that their federal tax is under review and claimed the earned income tax credit then they are gonna want you to send them something to prove that you can claim this going thru it right now

    I filed my Illinois taxes on Feb. 4th, my tax online service said it was accepted by illinois. Everytime i go to check, it says, we have not processed your refund yet. Funny, whenever I owe them, they will take out the money from my account within the same day of filing but when they owe us, we have to wait. I can’t wait til the day comes that i leave illinois and take my retirement i earned here and spend it in another state.

    Mine hit this morning with both websites saying that it’s being processed. Happy day!!

    #4376524 Reply

    Update – It was in my account today!

    #4376335 Reply

    I just checked both sites for Illinois, and they say my return has been processed. The Comptroller site said they received it on 2/25, and I should receive the funds in my account within a day. My Credit Union takes their sweet time updating info in the mornings, so I don’t know if it actually hit today or not.

    (I filed on 1/31, and have both EIC and child tax credits.)

    I filled my taxes Jan 21st and accepted. I got a notice regarding my withholdings that they couldn’t verify so I had to send in on mytax Illinois website the proof of my w-2 and letter from my employer to show my withholdings and its been 2 weeks already. It was over $3,000 withholdings but they changed it to 0.00 cause they couldn’t verify supposedly. Any idea how long does this process take to get my refund?

    #4372507 Reply

    Still nothing…my balance is zero on My Tax Illinois…how long will this take? Both tools say refund not processed yet.

    #4371949 Reply

    Still no change as of 725am (CST) on Monday, February 24th….

    #4369373 Reply

    When green goes to zero..usually at midnight that night or day after comptroller site updates ( 0 means that’s when Illinois sends it to them) and after that it gets sent to your bank

    #4366719 Reply

    @Katie G

    I filed on 1/31 also and I’m still at processing.

    #4366500 Reply


    Looking at about 6 weeks with a paper return.

    #4366354 Reply

    First time Illinois state filer since moving last year. Therefore I had to do a paper return. I mailed it out around 1/31. I’m sure I’ll be waiting a LONG time.

    Anyone have experience with paper filing? I can’t check My Tax Illinois obviously. Not this round anyway.

    #4366092 Reply

    When did you get accepted by the state

    #4366019 Reply

    I went on MyTax and my balance went from green to zero. That is a good thing right? Because the where’s my refund tool says it is still processing and the comptroller’s site says the same thing too?

    #4365943 Reply

    #4364820 Reply

    I filed the 24th and it was rejected. Refiled and accepted February 3rd and it’s still processing.

    #4364713 Reply

    Nada here. The balance hit 0 so it should have fully processed but nothing changed on Where’s My Refund and I can’t get into the comptroller website either.

    #4364490 Reply

    #4363586 Reply

    Mytax account showed $0 wednesday the 19th. Funds in my account today. 20th.

    #4363425 Reply

    What does the message on the bottom say for everyone else after recieved. Does it say it cannot be completely processed without additional review. But not to send anything they will let you know if they need anything

    #4363144 Reply

    Got a letter for income verification :( how long will this delay my state refund? Will it affect my federal refund? I assume it doesn’t but wasnt 100%. Thanks guys

    #4362728 Reply

    As I said yesterday I expected mine to be here today. It just hit my Chime at 3:50 pm.

    That was one day after going from Green to 0.

    It all depends on what bank you use.

    Wmr and comp still says processing.

    Mine says we have not processed your return yet 🙄🙄😒😒

    #4362449 Reply

    Mine says the same. Driving me nuts. You think it might deposit over night before weekend? I’m hoping so. Just wish the Illinois websites would update the status.

    #4362431 Reply

    Last year I got mines on the 20th I don’t know what is going on this year

    #4362296 Reply

    As of 1230pm on 2/20/20 mine still says being processed.

    #4362288 Reply

    @Mm mine still says it is being processed as of 12:20pm on 02/20

    #4361783 Reply

    Yeah mines been excepted for about 20 days now. I would assume it would hit anytime soon. I wish the WMR and comptroller sites were a little more detailed. Instead of just saying not yet processed it should have a estimated date so that people aren’t as anxious. Last year I got my February 22.

    #4361520 Reply

    I still haven’t received my state refund and it was accepted on the 28th of January

    #4361400 Reply

    @76job that might mean that they will be mailing you some paperwork to let you know what you need to send them

    #4361399 Reply

    Did anyone get their refund today

    #4361236 Reply

    Is it normal to have a message that says your return is recieved but cannot complete processing without additional review

    #4360334 Reply

    Yes Mm. I did last year and probably will this year as well

    #4360324 Reply

    I was excepted on January 30. My WMR and Illinois comptroller website both say processing. Has anyone ever received the funds when both of these sites were still processing? I’m hoping I wake up to the money soon.

    #4360319 Reply

    I was excepted on 1/30. My WMR and Illinois comptroller site both still see that my return is still processing. I am hoping I will wake up to a deposit in the next day or two. Some people say that they get a deposit without any movement on the WMR site. I am hoping this is the case. Anyone else have that happen ever?

    #4360224 Reply

    The lady said earlier when i called that when it goes to 0 that means it was processed and sent to the comptroller. It takes a day or so for them to receive then a day or so for them to send to you then after that depends on your financial institution for deposit.

    #4360226 Reply

    When did you guys get accepted. I was accepted Feb 5th.

    #4360061 Reply

    My $ amount on my tax went to $0 today.

    ugh, still no change on mine.. green numbers and all :(

    on top of that my school said my financial aid refund was sent to my account monday but none of the students have received it yet!! I need my $$$ from someone soon.

    How much longer after your green numbers drop to 0.00 do you have till you get your refund

    #4359534 Reply

    @georgiaLiving. They are referring to mytaxillinois website.If you have a account with mytaxillinois you can see youre refund amount information.

    #4358999 Reply

    when everyone is saying there’s went to 0 so their money should be coming what are you all referring to?

    #4358896 Reply

    It depends on your bank. I use Chime so mine is fast and will be there by tomorrow.
