    Seriously over this

    Accepted 3/4. Still waiting!! No EIC, just small business. Absolutely no reason for this. Wouldn’t it be smarter to just add security measures to prove ID, rather than hold it up?!

    Reinna Waseskuk, the irs does pay interest but under certain circumstance. Amended refunds often have interest applied but also refunds that are sent 45 days after April 15th usually have interest on them. I believe it is 5% interest now. Two years ago mine was really late. I filed in February with injured spouse and I did something wrong so it was my mistake but they also didn’t notify me for a couple months and then I just stalled on resending it. I finally re-sent it August and they got me the refund in 4 weeks with $83 in interest.

    I was accepted on 2/28 . It still say just that. Accepted. If they are trying to wait it out for whatever reason they should pay us interest. I’f it were us expected to pay them. Good lord, they would throw charges at us left and right.

    At some point yesterday, it updated to, ” your refund has been issued. Please allow 14 days to receive your refund. ” Blah blah blah. Waited until today to post because I wanted to see if it would update and show an amount. Still no amount showing. Will update again whenever IT updates. Refund receive on 2/25.

    Update: Pending in CU for deposit Monday. Good luck everyone. My timeline is in the posts below.

    #4320620 Reply


    Just another update, around 6:30am or so this morning I updated to the refund issued message and now says please allow 5 days to expect your deposit, and it shows my full refund amount on the bottom. I anticipate to see it in my bank maybe by monday or tuesday next week. However I do bank with a credit union and deposits come in sometimes at night or mornings, pending when they receive the notification. For more details I posted yesterday when I finally exited the processing message.

    Filed and accepted 02/18 with H&R Block online

    Filed and accepted 02/18 and around 11pm last night I finally updated to the refund issued and please allow 14 days to receive refund, if amount below is different then what you expected please allow 7-10 days for a letter with information. However no amount listed, however I don’t expect details till possibly tomorrow when it usually updates to refund sent or whatever. I did check throughout the day yesterday, so my update did come sometime around 11pm.

    I filed and accepted on 02/16. Sorry for the wrong date update.

    #4319761 Reply


    It doesn’t even seem like they’re doing it in any particular order! I filed before SKR and still nothing! Filed 2/25. Says they received it 2/25 and that they are processing it. It has never said anything about an acceptance or approval date. I for one feel that if they’re going to take this long every year, we should be getting compensated with the interest our money occurs for every day that it takes them to release it after they receive it.

    #4319721 Reply


    @SKR When were you accepted? I was accepted on 2/18 and haven’t had any kind of update yet.

    #4319710 Reply


    I got 14days message in status today and expecting my DD to credit into my account in 2-3 days.

    #4319691 Reply


    Anyone accepted the week of 2/18 received their deposit or have any update yet? This seems to be taking a ridiculously long time.

    #4317568 Reply


    filed on 02/26 and still waiting for the DD. it says received and in process. Will update once the status changed.

    Finally got my deposit today, accepted 2/1

    #4310665 Reply


    Finally processed! Filed 2/1 today I got the 14 day message.

    #4310535 Reply


    Mine updated from 14 day message to deposit sent 3-7 please allow 5 days.

    #4310435 Reply


    Mine is sitting in my bank account for deposit date on 3/11. It was released on 3/6. On 3/5 it said it would take 14 days then yesterday morning it showed 5 days allowed in bank.So it is pending at my credit union. Finally, I know last year I got state close to the same time which was 3/5/18.

    Glad some people are finally moving. My $253 is still in process 🙄🙄😂

    #4310185 Reply


    From what I am understanding this year they are going to be 2 Updates on deposits. The first one will read you will receive your deposit in 14 days. The second update most are saying the following day from 14 day update you will get your direct deposit date..

    #4310007 Reply


    Finally an update however there is no deposit dates given.
    Your refund was issued. Please allow 14 days to receive your refund. This is the same information available to our phone representatives.

    #4309697 Reply


    Same here, filed 1/28 with no update yet. Not even a huge amount of money…it’s ridiculous that it is so delayed EVERY YEAR.

    #4309667 Reply


    Filed and accepted 1/22 finally updated today. Says it was approved and expect a deposit in 14 days.

    #4309384 Reply


    Filed and accepted 2/1/19. Still in process. Iowa is hands down the WORST state when it comes to refunds. I got Nebraska back within 2 weeks of filing online and I’m still sitting here waiting over 2 months after filing Iowa at the same time with nothing.

    #4309225 Reply


    Actually I was wrong, don’t panic. I just realized the dates on those posts were 2018. My bad. False alarm.

    #4309224 Reply


    filed 2/1, still in process. On the state refunds boards people with a later accept date are saying the website shows their refund issued but could take 14 days. What the hell?

    Sounds good to me Bonnie. This is crazy.

    Yes, I actually got mine March 4th last year they were released last week of feb if I remember correctly, but then take almost a week to be DD

    Filed my taxes with HR Block had to mail them in because I could not file online due to a form and adjustment. Receiving message that your taxes have been received and are being processed. They were accepted on 3/20. Same message for, four weeks now. I did ask that my refund be DD even though I had to mail them in…I thought this would be quicker. Waiting…four weeks now…

    #4243803 Reply


    Filed 2/23 mine still says in process. next year think i will wait until the deadline to file and i am not going to claim any of the credits that I qualify for because they don’t want to pay out. They just sit on the review because some people screw the system and those of us who work for a living but are a single parent get screwed over!

    #4241201 Reply


    I filed on 2.14 and that’s when they received it and i still have no refund from the state. I look online and it says its in process. Its been over a month, WTH is going on with it???

I have been here for 5 long years and I am so ready to get the fuck out of this one horse town and go to a more diverse state that doesn’t tax you for everything you do!! NOW wtf is my money already I done paid yall now give me my money!!

    Filed and accepted February 10th… still says received but nothing else. Anyone else in this situation?

    #4237791 Reply


    I am SO glad I found this and I’m not the only one. Mine says issued 3/7 and I have been checking everywhere online to see who is allowed to take state refunds because I was sure someone had taken it 😂 so this helps. Sucks that it is happening to so many of us though.

    Hi, I’ve received mine today. Good luck everyone.

    My refund status shows issue date of 3/2/18, no direct deposit as of yet 3/07.
    What gives?
    I know it should not take an entire week, this is frustrating.

    Welp- here we are past the 8 week mark and NOTHING! Still the same message- please allow an additional 8 weeks! Feeling pretty frustrated.

    Has anyone filed in the last couple weeks and gotten their refund?

    My sons gf filed on 04/17/17 and hers has been processed and updated. We filed a day later and are still waiting. Ours and hers both were pretty straight forward and simple.

    My state was sent on 3/22 and received it on 3/24 finally. I hope this does not happen again next year.

    I have the same 5 day message for deposits @ any updates, mines issued 3/24 still nothing

    #4192215 Reply



    Since you filed in January did you claim EITC? Just curious because I claimed EITC and filed on January 24th. I have American Express Serve for my direct deposit. I know some state refunds were sent out due to not having any EITC.

    #4192201 Reply


    as of yesterday March 17, website updated from “8 weeks” to your refund has been issued please allow 5 days to receive your deposit. it has not hit my account, and I used netspend. I filed and was accepted Jan. 31

    #4191875 Reply


    Yea but if we owed they would want their money now or would garnish our paychecks

    #4191818 Reply


    @ Bryce
    Yes I feel you very much. I filed back on January 24th and since then it’s been saying 8 weeks then in Feb. it said allow at least 2 wks. then it went back to 8 wks. I even tried calling them a couple of times and one rep. said allow 8 wks. now this was last week and so I asked him so around the 24th of March and he said if you have not received anything by then to check back. This is getting to sound a little shady how much more identity protection do they need to go through does not make since.

    #4191796 Reply


    I filed the 19th of January still no update or no refund their 8 weeks are up Wtf???

    #4191690 Reply


    If that is the case then seems like for me 60 from January 24 would be correct if counting weekend days. But still falls in that March timeframe. Maybe something will update next week. Frustrating.

    Well, I called the Iowa DOT yesterday. After a 2 hour wait on hold (really!) I finally spoke to a man who said the refunds were delayed for about 60 days.

    I also asked him about the wording on the IDOT website mentioned in my post above:

    “We have received your return. It is being reviewed. If additional information is needed, you will receive a letter from us. Returns filed electronically are typically resolved within 60 days of the date below. Returns filed on paper should be resolved within 3 to 6 months from the date below.”

    I was concerned that the words ‘reviewed’ and ‘resolved’ (instead of ‘processed’) indicated there was something wrong with my return. The fellow I spoke to assured me that was not the case.

    #4191657 Reply


    @ Jane Macolm
    I filed on January 23 and it was received on January 24. Alot of people from Iowa are in the same boat. Only when I check mine refund status for Iowa it states “We have received your return. Please allow an additional 8 weeks to complete processing of your return.
    RETURN RECEIPT DATE 1/24/2017”
    It has been showing this since I filed. But back in February it went from allow 2 weeks then back to this message above. Now I have spoken to a couple of representatives with a long time wait. And he stated to allow 8 wks. which aware of and I stated so around the 24th would be 8 wks. for me from that date. And also I have been reading on different websites where it says Iowa will not be releasing refunds until early March here it is early March and still no signs. If I do not see any change by next week I am calling again. This is nuts. I received my federal back on February 20.

    #4191430 Reply

    Jane Malcolm

    Hey, Everyone –

    I filed electronically on March 1. I got my Federal refund direct deposited into my bank on March 7.

    I still haven’t got my Iowa refund. When I checked the Iowa Dept of Revenue site, I got this message:

    “We have received your return. It is being reviewed. If additional information is needed, you will receive a letter from us. Returns filed electronically are typically resolved within 60 days of the date below. Returns filed on paper should be resolved within 3 to 6 months from the date below.”

    Has anyone else got this message? I’m concerned that they said my return is being ‘reviewed’ rather than processed, and that it is being ‘resolved’. Also that time frame seems excessive.

    Do I need to be worried that there is a problem and they are going to audit me or is it just a standard message?

    #4191363 Reply


    @ Kay I called them and asked them about updates for our state taxes and the lady I spoke to on the phone had the nerve to tell me that their website does NOT state the refunds will be issued early march! After arguing with her for about 5 min I got so mad I just hung up! I wish they would just release our refunds.
