I was accepted the 27th and still no movement. I hope they’re enjoying holding on to my whopping $288. I’ve claimed the same dependants since 2003. Obviously I’m not one of the criminalsSamantha(MA)
I know my bf wanted me to change it and said I can’t watch this but glad I put it back on after commercial lol..I even said you never knowCynthlaLee
*Never lol and yesss go patssss !!CynthlaLee
@Samantha(MA) omg yes that was a great game kept us on the edge of our seats lol but ever lost faith !!Samantha(MA)
OMG so glad I didn’t change it!!! I can’t believe it! Go Pats!!!Samantha(MA)
I can’t believe how the pats are playing! I can’t even watch anymore! Wish I had an update or my money to feel a little betterTiffpeapod
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.

MA Dept. of Revenue @MassRevenue Feb 2
@Denise9022 2-3 days references processing. Most refunds are received within 2-6 wks after processing.CynthlaLee
Hopefully we see some change tomorrow !!
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 suckSamantha(MA)
Nothing new :( Hopefully see something tomorrow, anything!Samantha(MA)
Czarface I was wondering the same thing, I tryed to Google it but can’t find an answerSamantha(MA)
Your state was refunded this morning Heather?
Anyone have an idea of what time the state website updates?
I think the common denominator here is EITC. That’s why alot of us are waiting.Heather
Filed on 1/27 and accepted on 1/28 and mine was in my bank account this morning! :) No EIC or anything like thatKionna@kionna
Filed and accepted 1/27 through taxact. Paid fees up front. (HH, EIC). wmr shows generic msg and nothing else. Waiting patiently….sam
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 lolWaitinginMA
I just called and they said it’s taking extra long to process this year due to the new system… it seems like they should’ve just kept the old one because this one is taking much longersam
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 sosam
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 15thsam
I checked last years and I got accepted on the 22nd and got it feb 1st and my federal feb 9th. I hope they don’t wait until after the federal! I’m going to call and see what they say to me lolkatie
I really wish they would have told us MA would be delayed too…. i can’t find any info saying that.
I wonder is czarface has EIC and if so, why they told him 5 days.WaitinginMA
That’s what I figured after the 15th. They should have given people a heads up. I am over here thinking something is wrong.
I just called and the lady I spoke with told me nothing will be released until AFTER federal releases their returns which is after 2/15 for anyone receiving EIC.Samantha(MA)
Omg the 24th!? I really hope they issue them soon and not towards the end of the month. Last year I think it took me a little while to get mine, but I had to ID verify…I wanna call but idk if I should lolWaitinginMA
I was accepted on the 24th and it still has not been releasedSamantha(MA)
I filed through TT on the 27th and was accepted the same day..just wish they would release it!!Samantha(MA)
Czarface called because online it says processed and they said to give it five more daysWaitinginMA
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.CynthlaLee
Online mines also has the amount in green with a – in front of it. And it says processed.
The automated phone service says received 1/27 please allow 60 days for processing
Yes, my amount is in green with a negative sign. Where did you get the 5 day info??katie
try and call DOR hotline see what it says on thatkatie
no mine just says still processing…. when did you file?Samantha(MA)
Katie and SinglemominMA, have you guys checked your acount on state site? Does it say it’s been processed with the amount in green with negative before it? Because there’s a couple of us who’s are like that and was told that means it’s ready to be issued and should get it within 5 days
I filed on the 27th as well. Still processing. Massachusetts is usually fast.katie
I filed on 27th still nothing.Samantha
Thanks for the update Czarface!! Hopefully that is the case..if you hear anything else or get your refund let me know pls and I’ll do the same
I was told to give it 5 more days to see anything.
Samantha i am seeing the same thing on my account. I’m trying to talk to someone now to find out what is going onSamantha
I filed the 27th and was accepted same day and shows processed on my account but still says it’s processing when I track it
I filed on Friday, 1/27. Accepted the same day. Still have generic 4-6 week message. Which is weird for MA. It’s usually 4 days.Kerry
Still waiting when did you filesam
anyone get their refund yet or update?Joe in Seabrook
Alright-After filling out that verification online on Monday night my webfile for income refund status changed. It says I should see my refund within a week.
Nothing in the bank account as of this AM but I suspect it will come along tonight or tomorrow.Joe in seabrook
Found a letter today in the mail to verify my mass refund due to changes.
Check your mail-it takes a few seconds just to go on their website and verify your return.Ashley
I filed my state taxes on 1/25 and still have not received mine either. My sister filed a week later and got hers last week. Come’on Mass, get your ish together!Joe in Seabrook
Still no refund for me-It still says being processed on webfile for income. A measly $150 bucks must be really important to Charlie Baker and the goon squads!
I shot them a general email asking what’s going on-I don’t feel like calling the State of Massachusetts. I’d rather cut off a finger or a toe.Ken
As promised, I am back to report that I received my MA. state return yesterday, Feb 10th.
@ Joe in Seabrook
Maybe you should give them a call and see what the hold up is. I do know that for some unknown reason, they seem to be later than in past years. Good luck to everyone.Joe in Seabrook
Mine still says processing and it was accepted on January 25th! That’s going on 15 business days and still no MA refund.
An update for Ma. residents. I filed my state taxes on Thursday, Jan 28th. It was received on Feb.1. I just received a notice today, Feb 6 that it has been approved and it should be deposited within 7 days. In the past several years my refund has been approved a little bit quicker, but not by much. I will update when my check has actually been deposited in my account.Chris
It was exactly 7 days. Wife called last Thursday and they were processed. Yesterdy we had them in the account.Anonymous
I filed my state refund for Ma about a week ago on the MA DOR WEB FILE. It has sat under still processing for the last three days and yesterday finally over the phone it states it was done processing and to expect my refund in seven days yet the web hasn’t yet updated to anything. How long in anyone’s experience did it take to get a refund after it stated done processing. Is it not updating to the refund sent screen on the web that it always has?Joe in Seabrook
@scott-Not sure I think it updated overnight.
No refund yet for me as I just checked the bank account! Maybe tonight.Chris
Our refund showed up this morning in our account. Finally.scottjuba@scottjuba
@Joe in Seabrook did it update in the middle of the day or first thing in the morning? I filed 1/27 accepted 1/28 and still don’t have any word. In years past Ive gotten a return real fast.Joe in Seabrook
My webfile for income updated today! It’s being processed!Joe in Seabrook
I’m still awaiting my MA refund (Filed Taxact and accepted by the state on Jan 25th).Chris
Well, you guys know our greedy state… We filed 1/19, accepted 1/21. Wife called yesterday and spoke with a robot human(zero personality), he said it’s processed and will be deposited this week. he told her deposits go in Monday, Tues, Thurs, Fri. As of this morning nothing, BUT IRS put ours in as pending for 2/5.Ken
Does anyone from Ma. Have an update about recieving a check ? Thank you in adavance.Genise
Filed and Accepted on 1/25 through TT
Called today and was told my return isn’t in the system. I’m freaking out and need some adviceJoe in Seabrook
Nothing today for refund in my bank account, It would be great if I see it tomorrow (Friday!) seeing I was accepted by MA on Monday.
@joe in seabrook: no i don’t use the mass. website. but i did use it to file my sons, i did his on monday and he is already done processing. i was a little jealous, it took me a week to get moving, and he’s finished in 2 days.Luis@singledad
Ok, so MA is finally issuing refunds. Mine was issued today. If website is not showing call refund hot line, it’s more accurate!Joe in Seabrook
@radshackgirl77 Did you file on their webfile for income page or through a software site like TaxAct or Taxslayer?
I used Taxact. Just curious!
just a little update for you guys. my state is finally “finished processing” and is “being issued.” it updated on the phone number and has not updated on the website yet. so like i’ve said use the phone number it updates quicker. i will pop in and let you know if i have a deposit tomorrow or thursday. thursday is when i’ve gotten all my state refunds in the past. good luck. here is the phone number if you don’t already have it 617-887-6367Joe in Seabrook
Mine was filed 1/19/2015 and accepted 1/25. No info on the webfile for income account I have. I used to do it on that site but I couldn’t this year so I used Taxact since I live in NH but work in MA.
I suppose I should see it by the end of the week.Susan
The mass automated system said they have received my return however additional info may be needed. I filed with H&R block. What the heck does this mean?brian
Same with me I talked to a rep who told me she couldn’t see any change and I was still being reviewedabubon
I filed my MA state return on 1/21/15, and am getting the same results. The online part says still being processed. DOR automated line says return processed refund being sent, call in a week if I haven’t gotten it. And still no deposit to my bank. It’s so frustrating. Normally I receive my deposit 4-5 days after I electronically file. I figured there would be a slight delay due to the Blizzard we just had, but now that things have been back to normal for a few days, I have been expecting it to be deposited.jgardner
Has anyone received their MA state refund? The online state wheres my refund says it is still being processed but the DOR customer service line says they received it, processed it and my refund is being issued if I dont receive my refund in 7 days to call and speak to a representative. It has been 3 days and still not deposit.
