I filed 1/30/2019 I’m still on the “Your 2018 return has been received and is currently being processed. Initial processing for error-free electronically filed returns is 2-3 weeks. Initial processing for mailed in returns may take up to 10-12 weeks. If additional information is needed the Department of Revenue will contact you.” Message. I have seen people talking about getting an accepted message of some sort. What platform did you get this message? By checking the state refund status website and the message was on there? This is the longest it’s ever taken me to get my state refund. Starting to annoy me. I haven’t heard anything from them. And since I filed that’s the only message I’ve seen on their website.March 14, 2019 at 1:21 pm #4313875
Just letting yalll know I got my state refund this morning. Got the acceptance message on Monday evening. Hope it helps someone get a idea on the time span.

I got more figured out on this forum then I did with any 800 # I called. GoodluckMarch 14, 2019 at 11:36 am #4313784

Approved for DD within 10 days. My “2-3 weeks” is already 4!
Ten days!? Why on earth? Only in Kentucky. Only under Matt Bevin. We are so last-century here it’s embarrassing.March 12, 2019 at 6:58 pm #4312445
Did you have any problems with your paypal & how long did yours take to post. I’ve heard that some ppl were having problems then I’ve also heard that it posted within 48 hours. Or if anyone else uses paypal can you shed some light on it for me. Wish everyone on here gets there’s tomorrow. I know the struggle is real for everyone that actually needs it ASAP this year. ThanksMarch 12, 2019 at 6:43 pm #4312437
I also just got the 10 day direct deposit message today. Anyone used PayPal for there DD and have any idea on how long the will take to post??? @Moe, you got the DD has been authorized and should be posted within 10 days, 10 days ago and still haven’t got your money??? That defiantly has me worried then. What did you use for your direct deposit???March 12, 2019 at 4:22 pm #4312380
Just now checking the status again and I now have the 10 day dd .March 12, 2019 at 3:45 pm #4312364
It’s been 10 days since they said direct deposit was authorized still nothing in my bank account how long will it take ?March 12, 2019 at 12:06 pm #4312289
Kentucky blows dogs for quarters. The greedy bastards holding our hard earned money hostage for “new security validation methods” aka they don’t want to give us our money.March 12, 2019 at 6:42 am #4312016
Sorry for the typos , I meant to say processing returns for Non residents … this is the latest message on their site
Processing times for Non-Resident returns (Forms 740-NP & 740-NP-R) have been delayed. Please allow an additional 2-3 weeks.March 12, 2019 at 3:43 am #4311996
Apparently they have also been processing returns for out of state resident return in additional To in state residents (whom should take precedence). The Where’s my refund site now has a message saying that out of state residents will have their refund delayed .March 11, 2019 at 2:29 pm #4311767
I electronically filed my state AND federal returns and wanted a paper check for the federal refund for a particular reason. I have already received my federal paper check through the mail and the state refund, which is supposed to be direct deposited, is “still processing”. It has been OVER 3 weeks and I STILL don’t have my state refund. When I called them today, I was told, AGAIN, that it is still processing. Glad and sad that I’m not the only one.March 11, 2019 at 6:48 am #4311591
I too filed my state Feb 8,2019 (accepted feb 14th ) ,and still have not received state refund . I was told to give them an additional 2-3 weeks to process the returns . When I asked why would they put an article in the courier journal with misleading info the agent hung up . Also when you call to have the agents at the department of revenue “check” they literally are just putting your info in the same system we’ve already been checking the status on .March 10, 2019 at 10:39 pm #4311516
My state refund was approved and it say a check or prepaid card was authorized and mail out on the 1st of march tomorrow will make 8 days not included the weeekend and i still havent received it. Please help.March 9, 2019 at 11:47 am #4311182
I got a letter saying I had to verify for my fed return. I hope that I don’t have to with my state also. I filed and was accepted 2/7. I hope if I was gonna have to verify for the state they would of already contacted me, but they are so behind and slow this year that it’s untelling. I know the struggle is real this year with everyone. I thought filing early would help you get ahead of the rush but I was def. mistaken. Next year I’m just gonna wait until they start processing before I file so I won’t get my hopes up. I just don’t understand how ppl that filed weeks after me have received there return and I’m still looking at a possible 2 more week wait which will put it over a month and a half for a E-Filed return.March 9, 2019 at 2:03 am #4311021
I had to verify…failed on first attempt. The questions are ridiculous. I hope I guessed correctly where my exwife of 12 years ago now resides…but how are my answers about vehicles that belong to my father, with whom I share a first name, or properties that I have no association with incorrect when I have never even been to any of the places they are asking me about.March 8, 2019 at 7:31 pm #4310817
Just got off the phone again, they said its AT LEAST 3 weeks to be processed and if I haven’t received it in another 3 weeks to call back, this shit is fucking ridiculous.March 8, 2019 at 1:50 pm #4310821
Just called back again they said it’s at LEAST 3 weeks to be processed, and to give it another 3 weeks before I call back. This is seriously the most stupid f****** s*** I’ve ever dealt with. I am getting so frustrated I really need thisMarch 8, 2019 at 1:21 pm #4310812
I have the long message, but when I called the number they said it was still just in processing, is there a certain number to call and talk to somebody who can actually give any more information? I filed and was accepted on Feb 11th. It’s been literally a month basically this is getting ridiculous, I got my state taxes back within a week last year.March 7, 2019 at 10:48 pm #4310449
@606 7 days for approval, 10 days following for deposit are the stated times. However, its usually more like 2-3 days for approval and 1-2 days for deposit…business days.March 7, 2019 at 6:29 pm #4310359
Nobody has any info on the ID verify? I’ve never had to do this. I got the message on Monday that I had to verify and a letter has been mailed but I still haven’t received the letter. Anyone know how long it takes to get it and to get approved after? It’s been well over a month. Seems like they should’ve mailed a letter a couple weeks ago.March 7, 2019 at 6:19 pm #4310351
I was accepted on 2/7 and just can’t belive it’s to this long just like everyone else.March 7, 2019 at 6:18 pm #4310350
@phoenixbennu so does that mean I should be looking for a deposit within 7 days or should I expect it to be “approved” & then extra time for the deposit?? And thanks for the knowledge.March 7, 2019 at 5:04 pm #4310323
@606 it means that they are actively working on your return. They have “scanned it into the mainframe” and it should be within 7 days for it to be approved.March 7, 2019 at 3:55 pm #4310291
So the first message I’ve had for weeks now had said,
“Your return has been received. Initial processing for error-free electronically filed returns is 2-3 weeks. Initial processing for mailed in returns may take up to 10-12 weeks.”
Now I just checked today and it changed to,
“Your 2018 return has been received and is currently being processed. Initial processing for error-free electronically filed returns is 2-3 weeks. Initial processing for mailed in returns may take up to 10-12 weeks. If additional information is needed the Department of Revenue will contact you.”
Can anyone help me out with what this may mean or had this happen with them?? ThanksMarch 7, 2019 at 11:59 am #4310174
Has anyone gotten an Id verify letter , if so how long after you verify does it take to get approved?March 7, 2019 at 9:15 am #4310084
Just called this morning, and was informed to watch my card that I had been approved. My message is still the long message.March 7, 2019 at 2:02 am #4309991
Still waiting here as well. Accepted 2/5 and getting processing message..March 7, 2019 at 1:21 am #4309978
Still waiting here. I am on the long message. Filed in January, accepted 1/30, shows up on ky website around 2/7 even before they officially started, Last Friday I called and they told me I was being scanned in and should be 2-3 days, and still on the long message today.March 7, 2019 at 12:58 am #4309972
When can expect my refund? I filed on Jan 21st and it was accepted on February 5th.March 6, 2019 at 2:45 pm #4309784
I still haven’t received my letter to verify and they said I can’t verify until I receive the letter. It just changed Monday to say I had to verify. Anyone know how long it will take to get the letter? I’m just 45 minutes away from Frankfort, looks like it would of been here by now. I have a new address this year. Will they send the letter to my new address? My fiancé filed after me also had new address and already had check mailed and received it. She hadn’t even filed for past couple years, I’ve filed every year for the past 10 years at least. This is crazy! I think they just enjoy holding our money. I mean damn it’s barely over $300, but I could use it. I been off work for a couple months focusing on my college courses, but I’m getting ready to start a new job, gimme my money!March 5, 2019 at 11:29 am #4309296
This year is so irritating! Filed 2/8–Accepted 2/14… Direct deposit still not there. Message still hasn’t changed from the received status. My refund is just $200 or so, but I need it!!! I don’t have any special forms or any big changes this year. Nothing to cause a delay as far as I can tell. I’ve filed taxes for 25 years, so I’m in the system I’m sure. Fairly certain it wouldn’t be a verification issue. Single, no dependents–as simple as it gets. Last year I got my state refund in 11 days, if memory serves. Would’ve been great to have that kind of speed this year! If I didn’t need it, it would’ve already been here…oh well…lol.March 5, 2019 at 6:09 am #4309161
I also had to verify ID and did so on Saturday, March 2. Checked the revenue site this morning and it still says I have to verify. Just wondering how often that updates..March 5, 2019 at 2:42 am #4309139
I’ve been filing KY tax returns since 1994, and now I have to take a quiz to verify my identity?
This just seems like a way of delaying the issuing of refunds. I e-filed in January but still had to wait for the quiz letter to arrive in the mail. That’s just odd. I got my Frderal return on Feb 15, but I t’ll probably be April before I get the Ky.March 4, 2019 at 10:00 pm #4309103
Accepted on 2/2. Got a pop up that said a chk was mailed or debit card card sent on 3/1 but I haven’t received anything… It was supposed to be going to my emerald card from h&r block.March 4, 2019 at 8:51 pm #4309076
State returns didnt not actually start processing until the 13th of feb. I know the website says the 11th but ai talked to a guy at the KY DOR and he told me they were delayed and it began on the 13th. 21 days starts at the 13th. I had to verify mine also so everybody should be drawing close to an update.March 4, 2019 at 8:47 pm #4309075
I just took the quiz Friday and now I have been approved. It updated about 6pm today.March 4, 2019 at 8:15 pm #4309068
Filed 2/8, accepted 2/15. I had the long message for a couple of weeks, then it changed to the short message, and back to the long message last week. Does anyone know what time(s) of day the site is updated? I’m holding out hope that I’ll get my refund this week, because rent is due and without that money I’m screwed. It has never taken this long to get our state refund!March 4, 2019 at 7:17 pm #4309041
I filed 1-31 accepted 2-5 and mine updated today that I have to take identity verification quiz but I have to wait on a damn letter before I can even take the quiz. Has anyone else had to take the quiz? If so, how long does it take to get your money after you take the quiz?March 4, 2019 at 3:50 pm #4308979
564-4581 is the # I used to talk to someone.March 4, 2019 at 12:24 pm #4308882
Just saw @phoenixbenn’s post about having called and spoken with someone. What number are you calling??? The 502-564-1600 number is just a recording and then hangs up on you.March 4, 2019 at 11:56 am #4308878
Thought for sure mine would be DD as it is exactly 3 weeks from the 11th when they began processing everything. It’s very disheartening to see so many on here with the same issue. Already got my Federal a
Week ago. Last year I NEVER received my KY refund and still have yet to be answered regarding that so I am worried it’s going to happen again this year. Has anyone had that issue before?March 4, 2019 at 9:03 am #4308735
Still nothing for me. I received the message that my direct deposit was approved please 10days blah blah blah message either on Friday or Saturday 1st or 2cd of March. Still nothing as of 6:30am this morning. I’m using GObank/greendot & filed with TurboTax.
I received my federal on the day of my ddd of 2/22 at 3:30am.
My state return was accepted waaaay before Kentucky’s date of the 11th on when they were gonna start processing all returns.
And today makes 3 weeks since that date.
This is beyond frustrating
Anybody else have similar circumstances as me?March 3, 2019 at 11:52 am #4308533
I filed on 1/31 and was accepted the same day and it’s now 3/3 and says it has been recieved and still being processed. It never takes this long to get my state refund bank. It’s been a whole month and nothing. My neighbors around me have recieved theirs that filed weeks after I did. You cant even get anyone on the phone to talk to anyone to see what is going on with them.March 2, 2019 at 4:40 pm #4308301
This is crazy!!! I always receive my state within a week or so. Monday will be 21 days since they started processing, but mine was accepted on 2-5 which Monday would make 27 days . I filed on 1-31 that would be 32 days. I don’t understand how my fiancé got accepted same day and she has already received a check in the mail( should of been direct deposit) and she hadn’t filed taxes in a few years. I file every year, had same job as last year, and don’t owe the state anything. Why is it taking over a month and still no change for a little over $300?March 2, 2019 at 2:37 pm #4308227
I filed in January, it was accepted later in February, but now I am getting this message, what does it mean?
“You will receive correspondence explaining the adjustments made to your return along with the contact information to submit supporting documentation or to send a written protest.”
I don’t have any outstanding taxes or anything…I filed via HRblock online for free – I got my federal back within a week.March 2, 2019 at 1:01 pm #4308196
I’m not sure if anyone else has had this issue but the office is closed for the weekend and I woke up to a message saying that my money was direct-deposited into my account on March 1st. It is now March 2nd and there is no deposit in my account so I’m very confused.March 1, 2019 at 5:55 pm #4307638
@Vee ppl said it pops up when u go to the where’s my refund page after u put in social and refund amount
@ryan63910 yes ppl on this Facebook group I follow -2019 Kentucky state income tax a few has received theirs without a change in the pop up message on the Kentucky dept of rev page.
Most tho get the deposit message and get it the very next day if u have direct deposit.I have heard ppl that get deposit though PayPal takes a bit longer like they r having issues . 3/4 days longer.
The short message is the one where it says we have received your return and it will take 2-3 weeks to process the longer message is the one where they say they r processing ur return. Then after that ur suppose to get the deposit message if no issues. I still can’t believe it’s takej this long!!March 1, 2019 at 4:17 pm #4307610
Still getting the same crappy short message and I was accepted on the 1-2 !!! Omg nothing has changed with my taxes in years. What’s the deal! No excuse for this slowness Kentucky!!March 1, 2019 at 2:25 pm #4307543
We efiled and sent on 2-6. Still getting message that they are unable to provide info about our return. My sons was sent efile minutes before ours and his return was direct dep. this past Monday. Makes no sense! Very frustrating this year. Sent a msg and it said someone will answer in 2-5 business days.March 1, 2019 at 1:53 pm #4307515
How often is the wmr for KY state updated? I’ve had the long message a couple of days now and I’m getting worried.March 1, 2019 at 12:20 pm #4307437
Just got off the phone with a rep. She stated my return has been uploaded to the mainframe and will take 2-3 days for processing, but can take up to 7 days to be scanned in and if there are any errors they will contact me.
The days part shocked me and I thought she misspoke and meant weeks, but she doubled down on the “days”March 1, 2019 at 12:16 pm #4307436
What is the short vs long message?March 1, 2019 at 12:09 pm #4307428
My message changed to the long message on monday then a couple hours later it changed to I have to verify my identity. I got my letter today for that and verified now back to waiting.March 1, 2019 at 10:47 am #4307341
I don’t have access to my mailbox. How would I know if I have to ID verify?March 1, 2019 at 7:30 am #4307158
I got accepted on Feb 5th and still have that annoying long message, this coming Monday will mark my 3 weeks for direct deposit. Come on Kentucky slow as constipation!March 1, 2019 at 1:12 am #4307002
Accepted 2-5 actually filed 1-31. My fiancé filed 2-3 accepted on 2-7 and hers has already processed and check mailed in 2-26 which was suppose to be a direct deposit. Mine accepted before hers hasn’t done anything, still the short message saying it has been received . Has anyone received their refund without it changing from the short message?February 28, 2019 at 9:58 pm #4306957
Daniel, I get the same message when I check with my social. However when I check with my husband’s it says “received.”February 28, 2019 at 9:34 pm #4306946
Still waiting. I keep getting a “We are unable to provide information about your return at this time” message. Is anyone else getting this? I haven’t lived in Kentucky before so I’m not sure what to expect.February 28, 2019 at 5:54 pm #4306872
Do we check with the main filer’s SSN if you filed jointly? Or can the other SSN be used too?February 28, 2019 at 1:59 pm #4306739
Just letting you guys know: mine was deposited a couple hours ago; less than 12 hours after the long message changed to the deposit authorization message on WMRFebruary 28, 2019 at 11:18 am #4306640
Me and my fiance got accepted on the 6th. Filed through h&r Block. Still nothing. Both have the long message. We both got our federal a week after filing.February 28, 2019 at 8:26 am #4306482
Still nothing , I did update a couple days ago to long message but that it , this is ridiculous ky is so slow , I’m calling todayFebruary 28, 2019 at 7:34 am #4306430
So how many days after receiving the direct deposit message will you get states refund? I received the message yesterday 2/27/19February 28, 2019 at 12:26 am #4306251
Direct deposit authorized message. 25 minutes after midnight.
How long until it posts?February 27, 2019 at 11:09 pm #4306215
I filed on the 12th with Jackson Hewitt.
Received state last Wednesday.
Long message still for state. Says acknowledged on JH website.
What are the chances of getting state Thursday or Friday?February 27, 2019 at 3:58 pm #4305906
Anyone here mail file? I was forced to mail my state return because of a glitch in HR Block software. I mailed it on 1/28 and I still show my return isn’t even received or anything. I called the DOR for KY and they weren’t able to help me much. Just curious if any mail filers have heard anything.February 27, 2019 at 12:34 pm #4305678
I have the short message now. Was long last week. Still haven’t gotten mine. Taking forever this year. Accepted 2/1February 27, 2019 at 8:10 am #4305343
Accepted 2/7 and it’s been stuck on Received since then. I know they didn’t begin processing until 2/11 so we are sitting on week 2 1/2 and I filed electronically. I received federal last week so I’m not sure what’s going on??!??February 27, 2019 at 5:55 am #4305155
Still stuck on long message and my state usually came before the federal but this year is backwards! I’ve never waited this long for state. What is the hold up?February 26, 2019 at 9:46 am #4304177
My message changed to the long.one this morning as well.February 26, 2019 at 8:19 am #4303865
Still stuck on short message , my son who was accepted 2 days after me had long message and this morning said it was approved and a check will be mailed which makes no sense since he chose direct deposit . I have never waited this long on state
