I know I am waiting also, have not seen very many people post about Iowa refund. This is pretty much early March. I know 8 wks. for me will be the week of the 24th. I filed back on 1/24.March 10, 2017 at 2:53 pm #4190896
I still have not received my refund and I’m getting very frustrated! On the website it clearly states that anyone that claimed the EITC will receive their refund Early March! So where’s our money it’s all b.s.March 9, 2017 at 9:57 am #4190018
Just a followup with anyone here it is the second week of March and I heard that state refunds will be issued early March. Has anyone heard any other updates or changes? Anyone still waiting for theirs?March 6, 2017 at 5:12 pm #4189380
Yeah, 8 weeks here also. I have no EIC or any of that stuff. I’m tweaking my with holding for next year. I about got it right this year so at least my refund is pretty small.March 6, 2017 at 11:21 am #4189288
Anyone from Iowa still waiting on state refund. Filed back in January accepted 1/24. Still saying allow 8 wks. to process. Went from 2 weeks last month to back to 8 wks. I spoke with someone this morning he just said allow at least 8 wks. So I stated to keep checking the wheres my refund link on Iowa dept. of revenue site around the 24th that would be 8 wks from my date. Anyone else spoke to someone and getting any where in the same boat. I am definitely aware of this EIC thing as well with it.February 27, 2017 at 6:02 pm #4187552
I sent in a paper return to the State IRS and Federal IRS, The paper return was accepted by State the day after I sent it in. I was in the “please allow 3-6 months” to process paper returns until today, now it states from Iowa “We have received your return. Please allow an additional 8 weeks to complete processing of your return.”
So, I will update this if I receive a return before the 8 weeks from today, Feb. 27th, 2017. But, I more than likely won’t since my ex husband illegally claimed the children on his return and e-filed before I could, hence the paper filing. I did send in the copy of divorce decree proving he couldn’t claim them, so I hope this speeds it up, but more than likely not.
I did notice one thing that can be counted on, if YOU owe the IRS they want their money “right now!” or in payment plans, if the IRS owes us, we must beg, plead, prove we deserve it, and then wait wait wait until the IRS decides it will give it to us.
I understand the Fraud aspect, and it is a shame that the IRS has to hold onto legitimate returns because of Fraud, thank you My Ex Husband, as you now fall into the category of people that make our tax returns take much longer, not just for me, but for everyone because he committed fraud.
There has got to be a better way!!!
On a side note, federal IRS still states they haven’t even seen my return yet… Erghhhh!February 27, 2017 at 4:08 pm #4187493
My son filed his state return on January the 26th,2017 and he received his direct deposit in early February.I filed mine on January the 27th,2017 and today is a month later.I am still receiving the message stating allow 8 weeks for processing.I read that if there is an E.I.T.C involved in the return that the refund will be issued in March.After March the 1st hopefully the state will release the refunds.February 15, 2017 at 11:37 am #4171350
Well…according to the Iowa DoR Facebook page, ALL returns are being held this year not just those who claimed PATH credits.
“”All electronically filed returns will have a turn around time of six to eight weeks even if no EITC is claimed on the Iowa return.” ”
I filed the 3rd so I expect I won’t see any money until the mid to latter part of March. I can understand being careful and conscientious but this borders on ridiculous. I won’t be e-filing my state taxes in the future since apparently, paper filers aren’t being subjected to these arbitrary holds.February 14, 2017 at 7:41 am #4169643
Filed and accepted on 2/3 although the Iowa DoR website didn’t update to show that for a few days. Has said “Allow 2 additional weeks for processing” since that time. We are not claiming any of the credits that are slowing others down, but this is the slowest turnaround in refund issuance I can remember. Usually, about a week after filing we get our money. This year, for the first time ever, the fed is going to beat the state in turnaround time.February 2, 2017 at 1:16 pm #4157167
I filed my state taxes on 1/23 and logged in next day and showed my receipt date of 1/24. But got to allow at least 8 wks. for processing. They are taking this identity thing serious also. I filed my sons income tax and his says processing for at least 2 wks. So has to do with this identity and EIC thing I’m sure as I was reading on their website.February 2, 2017 at 1:32 am #4156828
Iowa not releasing until March! So unfair
We have to wait for federal and stateFebruary 1, 2017 at 9:35 am #4156348
How do you know they won’t release until march for eic? @meJanuary 28, 2017 at 12:21 pm #4154187
I was a little sad when I checked my state and saw the “at least 8 weeks to process”. Then I did some googling and found out that iowa state is not releasing refunds with EIC until March.January 28, 2017 at 10:40 am #4154142
Filed on 1/17 today it showed is was relieved and to all AT LEAST 8 WEEKS to process. SERIOUSLY GRRRApril 6, 2016 at 8:26 pm #4150057
I filed electronically in February. The state accepted my return on Feb.22. The only message that has been showing since then is to allow up to 60 days and that they will send a letter if they need additional information. Today is April 6th. It has bsen 45 days, haven’t received a letter and still no update.March 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm #4144922
My bank has it pending for tomorrow. So it took a total of 13 days. BUT my WMR for federal still hasn’t changedFebruary 26, 2016 at 12:20 pm #4144129
I logged in and it says
Your refund was issued. Please allow 14 days from the issue date below to receive your refund.
PROCESSING DATE 2/25/2016
Every year it said that I got my money the next day BUT I haven’t received it yet.February 24, 2016 at 11:20 am #4143644
I filed the 18 and it got accepted the 18 but on the iowa page it says the 19th. I called as I wanted to know how often they update that page and they told me mine was approved just waiting on DDD.February 23, 2016 at 10:30 pm #4143529
Well today it changed from the 60 day review to please allow 2 weeks to finish processing and now has a processing date of 2/23.Anyone else.No letter, and i didnt call to do anything.February 16, 2016 at 12:20 pm #4140602
02/16/16……I just talked with state of Iowa….. Here’s the scoop: There was a few week time frame that all of the refunds are being held because the IRS notified the state of Iowa that there were fraudulent returns filed. He said people that were not entitled to refunds filing for them. I filed on 02/07/16 it was processed on 02/09/16 still says allow 2 weeks for processing. No further updated on the website. Agent said my return has finished processing but he told me that I got caught in that group of people. The group that has the payments held will be released at the end of this week which would be the 02/19/16. My son’s was accepted on 02/01/16 and his now says that It is under review and will be released within 60 days if not sooner. My take on his is that he moved this past year and has a new address and a new bank account and they are making sure it is going to the correct person.February 14, 2016 at 4:47 am #4139701
Mine says it is being reviewed and that if they need more info they will send a letter. Got the letter today and asking to send a copy of the W2February 11, 2016 at 9:13 am #4137712
Anon…..I received the same message not sure if it’s normal or a bad sign. I haven’t heard anything else or gotten anything in the mail.February 9, 2016 at 12:37 am #4134414
Submitted Taxes last week and federal and state were accepted.Checked Iowa state the past few days with a message of not received, however it just updated to received and is under review and usually is resolved within 60 days, and then has a processing date of 2/8/16. anyone else receive this, and how lomg does it usually take? as of right not is says to do nothing, if information is needed they will send a letter…..February 6, 2016 at 4:56 am #4131010
