What does onetime-processed mean in your tax account when it’s showing next to your refund amount? Does that mean that they have processed your return or your refund? Because I have no messagesMarch 9, 2019 at 1:36 am #4311019

Pending Approval since 2/24
DDD 3/7 (updated on website 3/7) and says 24-72 hours to appear in account
Still waiting for IRS Tax refund approval.March 1, 2019 at 3:07 am #4307034
Me and my girlfriend both got out state refunds today. No warning or anything.February 28, 2019 at 7:12 am #4306405
I had the “refund pending approval” messages since 2/20/2019.
It changed this morning to “Your refund was forwarded to your financial institution on 2/28/2019. Please allow three (3) days for the refund to post to your account. If you have not received your refund within this time, please contact your bank. If you have not received your refund after 30 days, please call us at 855-307-3893 during regular business hours Monday through Thursday, 8:00 AM to 4:20 PM and Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:20 PM”
Seems like Louisiana updates on Wednesday nights, weekly. So it looks like a week after the approval message refunds are sent.
Hopes this helps others.February 22, 2019 at 9:07 am #4294251
Mines say the same thing Pamela. Usually I’ve never received that message. It’s normally the generic wait 45 days message.February 20, 2019 at 1:15 am #4285244

Why is it you can get your Federal taxes back in less than two weeks, but it take 45 days to process State taxes?February 18, 2019 at 12:01 pm #4278268
Todays technology makes everything more efficient. Year after year. You can pull people’s info with a few clicks. Technology progressing yet the government seem to going in the opposite direction. You think fraud was something new. Every year there’s more delays. New tax laws. And for some reason if its a federal issue it a state issue. Like states have 0 independence.February 18, 2019 at 11:50 am #4278244
Louisiana full of it. Every year we get new federal tax laws to prevent fraud. Laat year i paid for direct deposit but Louisiana mailed my refund because it was my furst year filing in that state. What does that prevent. NOTHING. my name is on the w2 and my name is on the bank account. What isnt secure it U.S. mail. Federal crime to mess with other people’s mail but is it enforced. No. Last year people got their refund days after filing. This year its been 3 weeks thus far. And fir what?February 16, 2019 at 8:08 pm #4274593
I just checked my Louisiana refund and it’s saying, It has begun the approval process. It said it takes up to 2 weeks.February 5, 2019 at 11:18 pm #4259361
Louisiana has changed the delay from 60 days to 45 days for 2018 returns.
So a 15 day reduction in the wait times.June 19, 2018 at 12:41 am #4248015

Anyone have this experience and if so, how long did it take from this point on?May 21, 2018 at 10:23 am #4246964

I filed my taxes on 2/28 and got my federal return in maybe 2 weeks or less. The state website refund says “pending approval.” while turbo tax says it was accepted. Any advice?? :)April 11, 2018 at 8:50 am #4244248
Mine randomly posted yesterday around 4pm. I’m still waiting on my federal. I filed 2/6April 10, 2018 at 12:39 pm #4244170
Mines changed; hopefully we’ll see something soon.April 10, 2018 at 8:20 am #4244142
For those who had a return accepted on 2/5- Status should have changed today.

Called again on Friday- was told returns accepted on Feb 5 would be released on April 10th. Due to fraud verification. No answer on why some people’s returns had to go through this extra review process , But I’m assuming our status should change from “YOUR RETURN IS PENDING APPROVAL” to whatever the next step is.April 5, 2018 at 3:01 pm #4243737
Let me know what they say!April 5, 2018 at 2:42 pm #4243735
Adam, CONGRATS, I’m getting ready to call now since my 60th day is TODAY, let’s see what the hell they tell me!!!April 5, 2018 at 3:50 am #4243679
Status changed to pending approval on 4/4. Guess I’m still waiting to see how long it stays in this status!!April 4, 2018 at 9:07 am #4243603
John, My return was also accepted on 2/5. I called them yesterday and asked why my return was clearly taking the full 60 days yet I know others rec’d refunds a month ago. I was told there is a “mandatory” refund hold on refunds $250 or greater. BUT One of my clients rec’d his 600 dollar refund last month and his was accepted 2/8. Every time I call I get a different answer but this morning my status changed from Processing to Pending Approval, so I guess my call prompted someone to actually do their job.April 3, 2018 at 8:41 pm #4243570
Anyone have any updates? I filed and was accepted on 02/05 and it’s still saying allow 60 days for my return to be updated. Guess I be waiting until the 6th before calling but I haven’t gotten a letter or anything. Smh!!!March 31, 2018 at 9:58 am #4243185
Hey Adam, that’s why I haven’t called yet because I knew all they would say was it’s still processing. I also have been wondering if I missed a letter and waiting for one to come. 2 of my friends have received letters 2 weeks ago to send the 1st and 2nd pages of their federal return and their W2’s. 1099’s etc. I told them that probably means y’all ain’t getting nothing back, LOL!!!! All I know is I need my damn money!!!!! OK!!March 30, 2018 at 1:42 pm #4243070
E-filed on 2/5/2018, website has said allow 60 days from the very beginning with no change, I also called to see if there was a problem and was told I’d have to wait the 60 days. I asked why it’s taking so long and was told “It just depends on who is working on your return ” So I don’t know if they are short staffed or just have lazy staff but this is ridiculous !!March 29, 2018 at 9:05 pm #4242975
Kim I called them today just to see if maybe they sent me a letter that I never got or just to get an idea of what’s going on and the lady just basically kept saying that I have to wait 60 days to get my refund. She said nothing was sent to me. I asked her if I would get i get after waiting 60 days and she said that after 60 days my refund will be issued. I don’t believe her, but all i can do is wait and see. I’ve never waited this long. Last year i got mine back in just under 30 days. Oh well!!March 29, 2018 at 7:47 pm #4242970
Adam, we filed around he same time, me 02/04 and you 02/06, let’s see what happens. Good luck to us!March 29, 2018 at 7:44 pm #4242968
I filled on 02/24/18, begin processing on 02/04/18, the message still says allow 60 days for processing. Last year I was selected for review and ended up getting only a $200.00 refund, significantly less that I was supposed to get. so I said, what the hell will it be this year!!!! This is so very frustrating and trying to call and get a live person is a joke. I really feel they are ripping people off. I feel people have worked hard and paid taxes throughout the year and getting a refund should not be this much damn DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I’m going to contact my State Representative and complain. SICK AND TIRED!!March 27, 2018 at 1:48 am #4242523
I filed mine on 2/5/2018 and website said it was received on 2/5/2018 and to allow 60 days for processing. I check mine today after about 5 days and it says it’s pending approval. I am hoping this means that it is about to be deposited into my account. Makes no sense it takes this long to get state back when I got my federal back a week after I filed.March 26, 2018 at 7:13 pm #4242491
I called the automated number today, and got a message stating the status of my refund was unavailable at this time. A couple weeks ago it was saying that my refund started processing on 02/05. And to allow 60 days to complete processing. Anyone have an ideal of why it’s giving me that message over the phone?March 22, 2018 at 6:13 am #4241566
Had to file through mail bc of some annoyances, but anyway. Sent out around the end of February, about a couple weeks into March it said my return began processing on 3/1, just checked and it says it pending approval so hopefully soon.March 21, 2018 at 12:22 am #4241331
Filed and accepted 2/06 and still showing the “wait 60 days” message. Has anyone received their Louisiana refund yet?March 19, 2018 at 3:21 pm #4240977
Been processing since jan 14 i still havent gotten anything and its past 60 days no letter no audit no id verify just nothing…so sarah u may be waiting a while.March 19, 2018 at 12:23 pm #4240895
Filed in February. Has only ever said, “Your Individual Income Tax Return began processing on 2/26/2018. Please allow 60 days for your return to complete processing.” Does anyone know if it updates to “pending approval” or other set status updates? Or can it just be “processing” until complete? What’s the next status update I should expect?
Tried asking this question via e-mail, no reply, called, told there were too many people already on hold and got hung up on via automated system. Craziness. It’s like they are *surprised* when this happens…every year…March 13, 2018 at 3:52 am #4239173
E-Filed on 2/13 -began processing on 2/16 – pending approval on 3/2 …as of today 3/13 it is still pending approval…March 12, 2018 at 8:24 am #4238767
Filed on 3/5 accepted on 3/5 processed on 3/5, nothing else, how long does it take to be approved after being processed?March 9, 2018 at 8:35 pm #4238309
my return status says “Your refund is pending approval.” does this mean they are reviewing the return and the refund will be coming soon? or does it mean it was already approved and the refund is pendingMarch 5, 2018 at 4:38 pm #4235774
so i guess if it (the website) says its “processing” that means it cleared the review and we should get it soon?
This is so annoyingMarch 5, 2018 at 4:29 pm #4235771
I e-filed 2/2 and got a letter around 2/20 saying it was picked for review and to allow 90 days (sighhh). So today i was wondering what was up and found this site, and it is saying “Your Individual Income Tax Return began processing on 2/2/2018. Please allow 60 days for your return to complete processing.”
Any idea whats going on? Daddy needs a new pair of shoes!!March 5, 2018 at 7:01 am #4235336
Well, I checked my status again this morning, no change. Still says my renfund is pending approval.March 3, 2018 at 6:00 pm #4235074
Filed LA return 2/1, accepted same day, received letter 2/9 saying that my return was selected for further review, I don’t need to do anything unless I get another letter. It says it could take up to 90 days, but when I check the WMR it says it began processing on 2/1 please allow up to 60 days.. anyone else get the letter saying they’re under further review and seen movement?March 2, 2018 at 12:30 pm #4234417

My partners return was filed at the same time and is still pending.
Right before I got this update my status said “your refund is pending approval.”February 19, 2018 at 1:20 pm #4224190
I counted the days between when they accepted my return last year and the date I received my deposit. This was around 32 days.
Counting for this year it would be Friday 2/23.
So hopefully at least an update soon.February 16, 2018 at 9:47 pm #4221422

I really hope this doesn’t mean something bad like the comments from last year……February 15, 2018 at 2:33 pm #4218824
I also have a status change to “refund pending approval.” Does anyone know what this is. I looked at the thread for last year as some people thought this was a problem status.
