No change here. Filed and accepted on 1/28. Still in Green.February 15, 2018 at 7:02 am #4217788

Not sure ifnit is an update but the amount is still in green but now that amount also says credit and is in black. No ddd yet.February 15, 2018 at 5:59 am #4217733

Direct Deposit DateFebruary 15, 2018 at 5:49 am #4217723
Still nothing!February 15, 2018 at 4:57 am #4217702
Woke up this morning with my state deposited into my account woohooFebruary 14, 2018 at 7:55 pm #4217434
Oh and what is DDD?February 14, 2018 at 7:32 pm #4217418
I have a MTC account and I don’t have anything green. Honestly I don’t really know how to read that little calculation they do. But on the “track my refund” page it says it was issued for direct deposit on the 9th and still nothing! (I filled the fifth so I was thinking I was quick and lucky, ha!) anyone else get it issued the 9th and not get it yet?February 14, 2018 at 6:46 pm #4217378
While doing my taxes I noticed that on my W2 my State number has changed to include a WTH before the numbers. Does anyone know why? I also noticed it on my dads w2.February 14, 2018 at 5:05 pm #4217288
Tomorrow is the day. I can feeeeeel it. ….probably not but one can dream.February 14, 2018 at 3:42 pm #4217193
The people who had their ddd last week, did yours come the day it stated the ddd was? Mine is supposed to be tomorrow, wondering if I’ll be disappointed or notFebruary 14, 2018 at 3:38 pm #4217183
@k. Thanks for the info. Set it up. I just have amount in green as wellFebruary 14, 2018 at 3:23 pm #4217162
What does green in parenthesis mean?February 14, 2018 at 3:14 pm #4217138
@Renee, it’s on their account. I have a MTC account and that’s what its under.February 14, 2018 at 3:10 pm #4217133
What is this green everyone is talking about. Mine just says they received it the 26th a d it takes 4-6 weeks. No amount or anything other than what I typed in.February 14, 2018 at 2:44 pm #4217086
Filed with TurboTax on Jan 27. Accepted on Feb 2. Still green……..February 14, 2018 at 2:34 pm #4217074
Hmm, thats weird, yours updated midday?
Still no changes on my state here, I’ll be sure to update if I see any movement.
Last year, I got my federal the 16th, the day after the notorious “Feb. 15th Path Act”.
Maybe it will happen again this year.
One can only hope.February 14, 2018 at 2:20 pm #4217062
So who has gotten their mass refund? I filed 2 days ago and already accepted the weird thing is I checked this morning and it stated they didn’t receive it but I checked at 12 and updated to accepted… Do they update all day instead of overnight?February 14, 2018 at 1:45 pm #4217041
Filed 1/12 mass accepted1/19 still no DDD just the amount in green. So frustrating!February 14, 2018 at 1:36 pm #4217033
MTC received 01/22 accepted 02/01 been in the green since, I called DOR due to seeing some people got an ID verification letter to see if I had anything on my refund. DOR told me there is no alerts or letter that have been attached to my refund. I asked rep that answered why I have not received it she said you are still right on time for the 4-6 weeks and there is a separate dept that control the refund. I see that someone people was told it was an auto system so I am confused. Online it says the IRS will start to update the Wheres My Refund for Federal as of 02/17 so I hope i get someone news from my state or federal soonFebruary 14, 2018 at 12:49 pm #4216950
Has anyone still have there amount in green and why is it in greenFebruary 14, 2018 at 12:35 pm #4216922
Has anyone here gotten their refund sooner than the MTC account saidFebruary 14, 2018 at 11:47 am #4216844
I have a direct deposit of 2/9 & still have nothing. It’s driving me nuts.February 14, 2018 at 11:11 am #4216801
Stupid auto correct…I hope our federal updates tmrw and hope with a ddd! Fingers crossed. Hope something changes, I haven’t even received my state yet! Ridiculous, it’s been over 3 weeks since I was accepted!February 14, 2018 at 10:49 am #4216770
Filed on the 28th, was accepted the 30th, have had processing since then. Post office says I’m receiving a letter from the Department of Revenue today but nothing on the Tax Connect page says i am…
I did our IDs to avoid this but I’m hoping that’s all it is! Anyone else have this happening?February 14, 2018 at 10:14 am #4216711
Still green on MTC. Filed and accepted 1/29.February 14, 2018 at 10:12 am #4216700
No update still sad going on 2 1/2 weeks like this something need ls to change in this system im goin to have my fed before my state and my fed was on holdFebruary 14, 2018 at 9:56 am #4216677
I hope our federal updates reel now hope it’s got a ddd. This is quite ridiculous with the state, still green with no ddd. Wth, filed Jan 20, accepted Jan 22!February 14, 2018 at 9:29 am #4216638
Still green with no DDD.February 14, 2018 at 9:15 am #4216630
I filed my brother’s on the 4th. He was accepted on the 5th and his paper check was sent out on the 8th and he receive it in the mail on the 12th they are really random with tax refunds. I think it should go in the order they come but that would be to much to ask….LOLFebruary 14, 2018 at 8:55 am #4216596
I was accepted by MA on 1/20. And still green. No letter. This is ridiculous, really. My best friend filed 2 weeks after me and got hers the 8th.February 14, 2018 at 8:51 am #4216590
@Adam the only way I knew the letter was coming was my checking my refund status not on my personal mtc account but on the regular page where you can check you status of refund and it says at the bottom that a letter went on on 2/7/18February 14, 2018 at 8:48 am #4216586
Yes I filed through TT and it gave me the option for added verification to enter my drivers license number. I was hoping since I did that it would speed up the process but nope still waiting lolFebruary 14, 2018 at 8:40 am #4216571
I just called the the DOR and asked if I should have received a letter regarding verifying my identity as my mail is not always delivered to me with different mail carriers. It did get her to check my account and she stated that I was not sent a verification letter and should receive my refund shortly. It was a way to getting them to look into my account, Number I called was 617-887-6367. Usually they just dust you off, I insisted they check. Good Luck Everyone…February 14, 2018 at 8:40 am #4216567
Also when I filed I had to put id on forms. Did anyone else half to?February 14, 2018 at 8:32 am #4216554
Filed and accepted 2/6 still in green with no updates. Just the 4 to 6 weeks to process message.February 14, 2018 at 8:31 am #4216552
Did you get notified that letter was coming or did it just show up. I think they may be verifying a lot of peopleFebruary 14, 2018 at 8:24 am #4216535
@natalie I filed and was accepted on 1/27February 14, 2018 at 8:07 am #4216509
I didn’t file/get accepted until 2/1 and I’m still waiting to update so don’t think it matters when you file…I do think they update throughout the day tho but not getting my hopes up..last year I didn’t update until my federal updated and think that’s going to happen again so I’m not expecting a dd until next week at this pointFebruary 14, 2018 at 8:04 am #4216497
Update I filed 1/22/18 and accepted same day. I had my mass refund in green for almost 2 weeks and then I received a letter with a code to verify my identity on monday 2/12/18, i did that online same day and today my amount finally went black and I have a DDD of 2/16/18, no change on the federal but I am hearing they are gonna start processing all of those eic and child credits tomorrow so hopefully we see changes tomorrow.February 14, 2018 at 7:58 am #4216490
Still no update for me alsoFebruary 14, 2018 at 7:57 am #4216488
No change here still green.February 14, 2018 at 7:37 am #4216465
@Terri, when did you file, ThanksFebruary 14, 2018 at 7:36 am #4216463
No change here. Still green.February 14, 2018 at 7:34 am #4216461
Still in green and no update here either.February 14, 2018 at 7:27 am #4216451
Seems to be less people commenting. Perhaps that means they are received theirs, which is a good thing. If I get any change or receive mine I will post it so other know.February 14, 2018 at 7:23 am #4216446
No updates still green. Accepted 1/28. Next year I will wait to file until after February 2nd. Seems they did those first. I think if there are problems with your return you would see Alerts or correspondence, I have none.February 14, 2018 at 7:16 am #4216438
No updates here, still in greenFebruary 14, 2018 at 7:16 am #4216439
No updates here, still in greenFebruary 14, 2018 at 4:12 am #4216336
The “wheres my refund” page says my state refund was issued this past Friday, and to give it 3-5 business days to be deposited. But no definitive deposit date… Anybody experience this?February 14, 2018 at 2:51 am #4216295
My friend efiled the 2/1 and got her DDD on the 9th I filed the 9th and still says processing. Last year it took exactly 60 days for me to receive my refund due to documents they wanted from that new security measure they’re taking so let’s see if anything changes in the morning.February 13, 2018 at 9:54 pm #4216196
I hope we all have updates tmrw. And hopefully Thursday us eic and actc filers get an update. Does anybody know if we will or should update Thurs the 15th for our federal? I hope so! Good night Mass filers. Let’s all hope for an update in am, for our state . Plz post if you get an update, hopefully with a DDD!February 13, 2018 at 7:17 pm #4216050
Multiple people on here including myself were told that it’s automated and luck of the draw. Maybe they should all be on the same page when speaking to people to avoid thisFebruary 13, 2018 at 7:14 pm #4216046
How do you know that DOR is pulling random names out of the hat to do refunds?
More than likely, there are a lot of unique situations that can cause a delay in a refund. On top of that, the crush of “opening day” for filing causes a backlog that will take time to work through.
For the ones that are free and clear and are straight forward with no issues that need to be rechecked, they may very well have an algorithm they use to determine where in line a refund will fall.
I want mine as soon as the next person, but DOR says 4-6 weeks to get your refund, that’s all we really know. And in my case, it hasn’t been 4 weeks yet; I’m on coming up on week 3.February 13, 2018 at 7:00 pm #4216038
My refund amount is in green but in parenthesis like (number) …..No – signFebruary 13, 2018 at 6:35 pm #4216009
Wonder if this has something to do with slow refunds. By Joshua Miller GLOBE STAFF FEBRUARY 13, 2018
A data snafu on a state tax portal allowed some companies to view other business’ names, federal employer identification numbers, and how much they paid in taxes, according to an email sent out by a payroll, benefits and HR company and forwarded to the Globe.
The email from Gusto said the Massachusetts Department of Revenue recently made changes to its business taxpayer portal, which is called MassTaxConnect. Those shifts, the email said, “erroneously permitted business taxpayers to view files containing company names, federal employer identification numbers (FEINs), and tax payment amounts for companies like yours. As a result, people outside your company could see your company data.”February 13, 2018 at 5:47 pm #4215987
What’s upsetting is the incompetence at the DOR. Why draw numbers out of a hat. That’s literally what they are doing unless it’s more nefarious than that and they are giving preferential treatment to certain individuals. I mean its not like it happened at the IRS…..oh wait, it didFebruary 13, 2018 at 4:36 pm #4215882
It’s hard to upset with the state when it clearly says the turn around time is 4-6 weeks for e-filed returns.
It is frustrating when other people get it before us when they filed later, but they are outliers.
Most everyone is still probably less than 4 weeks since it was accepted by the state.February 13, 2018 at 3:59 pm #4215814
Also, I had someone at the DOR tell me that I should be happy that I am getting a refund and to give it time with the new system
Actually it’s my money that I overpaid so be more transparent and just give me an answer
Elon Musk is flying cars and shit in space and Mass DOR can’t even refund properlyFebruary 13, 2018 at 3:56 pm #4215804
I got my federal 8 days ago. I have been in green with the state since 1/28. All they say is it’s random when you will get your direct deposit but give it 4-6 weeks maybe 60 days or maybe we don’t even know. This system is a disaster. It should be like federal (refunds process in order of accept date).February 13, 2018 at 3:46 pm #4215787
Seriously frusterated! Going on almost 3 weeks since return was accepted and nothing. I thought maybe it was the EIC thing but there are others not claiming it who still have yet to get there refund. This will be the first time ever I will most likely get my federal before my state. Great job MA.February 13, 2018 at 3:33 pm #4215757
Anyone get any DDD update today?
Mine was green a week ago, still green and still nothing.February 13, 2018 at 3:29 pm #4215749
This process is so annoying!!!!!!!!!!!! Just give me MY money!!!!February 13, 2018 at 12:33 pm #4215531
Just called the DOR, alls they could say is its processing. When I asked why other people have already gotten theirs, I was told, “That’s irrelevant”.
Thanks for the info….nottFebruary 13, 2018 at 12:29 pm #4215518
I filed in whole dollars. It was a whole dollar return until this morning when it changed to xxx.60
All I could figure is that I owed a few dollars from last year and they tacked on some interest over night.February 13, 2018 at 12:21 pm #4215496
@Katie. Congrats. I filed earlier was accepted by the 26th and still waiting. It’s been in the green for 4 business days. I hope tomorrow I get an update.February 13, 2018 at 12:01 pm #4215475
Jackie, I was told whichever is deposited first it will come out of, but I did H&R. However, someone did comment on here saying they received their state and there was no advance taken out yet. Also, H&R initially told me it comes from federal, then when I called they said whichever comes first. It would be nice to know definitively.February 13, 2018 at 11:59 am #4215469
Does anybody know if Jackson Hewitt fees are taken out of state or federal refund? Also what about the cash advance I got?February 13, 2018 at 11:50 am #4215457
@Kev. No cents on returns all whole dollar amounts. Did you file with dollars and cents? That would hold up your return.February 13, 2018 at 11:27 am #4215410
Yikes! My green refund got changed by like 40 cents. I wonder why and I wonder if that means that they are closer to getting it back to me.
Another day of stalking my returns……February 13, 2018 at 11:14 am #4215382
I just call MA Revenue, stated it’s luck of the draw as to who gets their refund next. Pretty ignorant answer. Are they throwing darts to see who gets’ their refund next. Not fair to early filers.February 13, 2018 at 10:19 am #4215299
The twitter handle is @MassRevenue :)February 13, 2018 at 10:04 am #4215279
Last year I received mine 2 day before at 12:30 in the after noon so with that being said i think they updated throughout the day .. that would be nice if thats the case and also didnt see the update until after I already had my refund… DOR workers dont even know whats going on its sad 😭February 13, 2018 at 10:01 am #4215272
Is there a possibility that we may update tmrw and possibly have a ddd for Friday?
