    There are actually people who have received their returns already with the EIC and ACTC in mass anywho I called back and was told they update nightly and the website is currently up to date.

    Like I posted last week, this is because of the federal government holding all tax returns containing EIC and ACTC. Some states are on board with that and IF your state return is partially EIC which is based off of your EIC amount from your federal return, they will not release any refunds until the federal returns are cleared and sent. I’ve let this go a week ago and accepted it. It’s easier that way.

    So I just spoke to someone at the irs and was told the word process means nothing and they will be changing the wording and if you have your amount with a green minus that does not mean anything special that’s just the amount your suppose to be getting back. I was also told they still working on my refund then it will be passed on to someone else to send out my refund I also asked when do they update he never answered that question and I forgot to ask again but I think I’m going to call an as that question again cause that’s what I want to know more than anything he also said it will actually take 4 to 6 weeks

    I ended up calling and the lady I spoke with said that if the amount is green with a negative sign in front that it’s good and means it’s been processed but that’s all she said 😑

    I was accepted on 23rd and I can see by looking at my account that mine has been processed. I can’t seem to get any more info that that from the thing. I f you go into your account from the non refund section there is more info there. That refund app is useless it seems.

    I hope it works for everyone soon. I give up it’s been exactly 2 weeks no change in status. I will just wait for a text from the bank about a deposit. DOR is absolutely no help this year.

    Samantha, friday is two weeks for me also. fingers crossed!

    The MA website says, “DOR estimates that 75% of online returns will continue to be processed in two to three days, and anticipates issuing most refunds in less than two weeks from the time returns are received.

    Refund turnaround times for e-filed returns could take up to four to six weeks if additional information is needed to verify a filer’s identity to protect against refund fraud.”

    So Friday will be 2 weeks for me, so hopefully we see some movement.

    I really think they are following the IRS with the path. I was accepted the 24th and nothing. No one gives me a reason just says 2-6 weeks, 60 days or 4 -6 weeks. I think they outsourced the call center and no one know what they are talking about. It’s really not fair if they were just on point and honest with us then maybe we wouldn’t be so mad and stop calling..lol sorry end of my rant I just had to get it off my chest.

    @china93: apparently no, processed does not mean processed. Only when you click on accounts, then click your account number then click activities you will see an option for refund. That is where it will show you whether the refund was issued. That’s why I prefer using the automated system

    My checking account info is really the only thing that changed. And the guy I spoke to told me that kind of letter wouldn’t be available to view on my account page so I have to wait for it. I checked and letter isn’t on my account page

    I had to ID verify the last 2 years. If you move, change your checking account info, new dependent, anything different, they usually have you ID verify. You might be able to see the letter if you log into the website. It’s a link and a personalized password and then 3 questions only you would know the answers to.

    @Samantha(MA): that was the case but I called today and I was told 4-6 weeks due to the crack down on fraud. So who knows now. I’m so discouraged and disgusted with the system this year. We all work hard for this money and look forward to these checks every years to give us a little boost financialy and a piece of mind. All we can do is wait it out. I’m done calling people and checking websites.

    Mass. Dept. of revenue automated system keeps saying “technical difficulties” would be nice if that means something. With this new system I’m just lost. In previous years if I got a message like that the refunds were being issued. Don’t know about this new system though.

    I filled 1/24 accepted 1/26 still processing. I just got off the phone with someone from DOR and she told me to expect at least 4 weeks due to more intense fraud detection. Nothing to due with PATH act even though it seems to be that way.

    So guys.. on the Ma department of website twitter page I saw this just posted a few days ago.. I do have friends who have started receiving refunds that were accepted on 1/26 and 1/27 so I’d say that the more accurate timeline would be around 2 weeks. I was accepted 1/27 so hoping to see some movement this week nearing the two week mark.

    In reply to Denise Farrell
    MA Dept. of Revenue ‏@MassRevenue Feb 2

    @Denise9022 2-3 days references processing. Most refunds are received within 2-6 wks after processing.

    I’m telling you guys, the turn around time for MA is usually 5-7 days. It’s because of the PATH law this year. Why else would it go from 5-7 days every other year to 4-6 weeks this year?? Ridiculous.

    One guy that I talk to at the Department of revenue said that the processed word is actually not what it means. He said he’s been trying to tell them that they need to change the wording that processed does not mean processed. they’re just all screwed up this year. I was told not to expect it for 4 to 6 weeks . They really suck

    ok so last year they received my refund 01/22 and it got deposited 10 days later on Mon 02/01…This year they received my refund 01/27 so 10 days later would be Mon 02/6…and when Czarface called they said within 5 days which would bring it to Tue 2/7 so hopefully we will see something between now and Tue. I have a good feeling…well for now lol if tue comes and there’s no movement it’ll be a different story lol

    #4157895 Reply
    sam

    I seen Czarface on the main page and he/she does have EITC..Guess we can only wait and find out…Maybe they told you they were waiting until the federal gets sent out so no one keeps calling or because that will be 4 weeks since filing anyways so

    I just called and talked with someone and they said mine is still processing and that their NOT holding them until the 15th, that they have a new system so might be a little longer than last year but their not following the path act and/or waiting till the 15th

    I had the processed any negative green for about a week now. I called h numerous times and nobody can seem to tell me when exactly the refund will be sent. I have a funny feeling they are going to wait until around February 15, i filed with H&R Block and it says receive mass by February 15.
