    @wade123 That really sucks, do they ever give you a reason why it takes so long?

    #4370712 Reply

    @HLJ Well, I go through this every year. I always get my State in late March or Mid April. Every single year I do this, except last year. Last year was 4 days from filing to refund sent. And that is only because I had $186 collections for an unpaid parking ticket. So I do not expect anything for at least another month. Thats my deal every single year.

    @wade123 totally agree about our refund tracker being better than WMR. Since it updates every day and at different times too. Bummer you have no changes :(

    #4370627 Reply

    I am still on processing. No letters and no messages on refund tracker. The one good thing about our refund tracker vs. WMR is it actually updates any day of the week, and it will tell you a letter has been sent. Even if it tells you a day or 2 late at least it does not leave you completely blinded like WMR. And if I did get a letter then I would be surprised, since I already had a full audit in 2017.

    #4370006 Reply

    Got a letter yesterday. Overnight WMR updated to tell me they sent a letter on 2-19. Would have been nice to see that message on 2-19 but at least it updated

    Received a letter to verify…not sure how long afterwards I should see my refund but here’s to hope:)

    #4369094 Reply

    Man, my boyfriend filed a week or 2 after me….got his refund on feb 14th. Me? Still nothing!

    #4369090 Reply

    I filed Monday 2/17 and my state return is being prepared.

    #4368426 Reply

    Received an ID verify notice today, hopefully this speeds up the process!

    #4368287 Reply

    I received a letter asking me to verify my identity the site didn’t tell me I was receiving a letter hopefully it gets my money to me now

    #4366270 Reply

    Stilllllll on processing. Update overnight maybe? Feels like I’ve been saying that everyday for weeks

    #4366243 Reply

    Went to sent!

    Wishing the processing gets quicker for my fellow Minnesotans.

    #4365328 Reply

    Refund was sent and moved to sent this morning – how long before it posts to the TurboTax card?

    #4364896 Reply

    I’m in the same boat. This really blows.

    #4364532 Reply

    Still at processing since 1/27. Definitely another year of 60 days. Well, I guess I will see you all in April.

    Moved to preparing this am.. filed 2/7….

    @cash H & R Block kept your state tax to pay for there fees instead of taking it out of the federal?

    Normally it says that if you don’t get the letter after Xx days to give them a call.

    Literally it was the quickest verification in my entire life.

    @tiredofwaiting IRS notices & Tax info do not get forwarded. Address change will be your last bet.

    #4362766 Reply

    @Tiredofwaiting They cant discuss any letters. They are actually telling the truth that they need the code on the letter to open it. It is like a PDF file with a password. Only a supervisor can open it. In 2017 that happened to me. I was out of the country and it took a month before a supervisor would even take the case. Best bet is to have someone run to your mailbox and take a picture of the letter to send you.

    #4362636 Reply

    So I check my status and it says they mailed out a letter 2/14. Only problem is I am out of state until May and it has been taking weeks for my mail to forward. I tried calling to see what they wanted and they said they can’t say anything. Is it most likely a letter to verify my identity? I did change banks this year. Are there other letters they “can’t discuss” ? Thanks 1

    The good news is that I finallygotmy refund…bad news is… it’sbeen offset

    #4362545 Reply

    @HLJ yea fingers crossed. I filed 27 accepted same day. This is the longest I had to wait

    depends on what bank you have. Usually your only on preparing status for 24-48 and you’ll get a ddd. If your preparing then I would be checking your bank for that to clear

    #4362433 Reply

    @Danny that’s good news for you I guess at least there’s no issue

    #4362389 Reply

    How long once you go into preparing refund does it hit your account?

    #4362384 Reply

    @hlj I did a few minutes ago. No hold or anything. Still processing. The rep said there is no time frame like irs. Everybody tax refund is different so I’ll wait still SAT for an update

    #4362143 Reply

    Has anyone with no letter and stuck on processing called the state and asked why no movement?

    #4362034 Reply

    @kallie congrats!

    #4361908 Reply

    I finally went to preparing after verifying my identity.

    #4361268 Reply

    States been accepted then still processing. Any updates from anybody else…I did TT/SBTPG

    #4361063 Reply


    I didn’t see an update this morning. Maybe tomorrow I will get one after verifying.

    #4360087 Reply

    Last year I filed 2/11 and got my money on 2/20. This year filed 2/2 and NOTHING stuck on processing. I give up lol

    #4359854 Reply

    @Steve, I verified mine yesterday. I am hoping I get it soon.

    #4358553 Reply

    Letter sent.. .2/7, verified in a minute online.. .been on preparing a refund over a week now, longer than I was in processing. Which when you’re in processing it said would be longest stage a person would be in.

    State of MN government is a mess and joke

    #4358692 Reply

    I got my fed literally days after filing now I’m waiting for state! Finally went into Preparing. Filed 1/27

    #4358448 Reply

    Where’s my reply?

    #4357400 Reply


    I have yet to receive my federal; however, I am pretty confident that I will receive it this Friday.

    #4357388 Reply

    @Kallie. Told ya. Super simple. Now you will go to preparing refund super fast. Thats why i wish I had a letter, for anything

    #4357260 Reply

    I got the verification letter today. Literally took me 1 minute to input my last name the verification code, confirm verification code and select that I filed it.

    #4357138 Reply

    Filed and accepted 1/27… Stuck in processing with no letter sent or info available. called today and was told “we’ve only been processing for a short time, your return looks normal and needs time to go to preparing ” that’s bullshhhh because I know people that filed well after me and had theirs last week already.

    #4357108 Reply

    Filed 2/2, went to processing 2/3. Still no change, hoping maybe tonight or tomorrow morning it will move to preparing. We can always hope right?

    #4356895 Reply

    @wade. Thank you for that information.

    #4356639 Reply

    @Kallie It depends on what the letter is for. Maybe you need to ID verity and you can do that online. Go to the link provided and enter the code on the letter, maybe they want more info, you might be able to just fax it in. In my case I live 15 minutes away in St. Paul so I just go there in person. But in any case you wont even get them to open youfile and discuss anything without that PIN in the letter.

    #4356535 Reply

    @wade. So what is the process with that code? Do I have to answer additional questions? Is there a link I am suppose to go? Lol.. I just want my money.

    #4356528 Reply

    Jeeze, you’d think in 3 weeks the MN dept of Revenue could at least update something on the refund status. Oh boy.

    #4356509 Reply

    @Kallie Yep, I got a letter 3 years ago because I claimed school expenses of $235. Learned to never claim anything again. It held me up until May. But you need that letter because it has a code on it that you need to verify.

    #4356450 Reply

    I tried to be proactive and let them know that I am receiving a letter in the mail today but I have class and won’t be able to get it to the mailbox and if I can assist this to prevent any further delay. The person told me I need to get the letter first 🙄

    #4355114 Reply

    If letters are being sent at least we have some confirmation returns are still being processed. Seems like a bunch of people got their money a couple weeks ago and nothing since. Maybe they process in large batches?

    #4354993 Reply

    @Kallie I wish I had a letter. At least I would know something. If it was ID verify, than thats super fast online, and within a day or 2 you should update to preparing refund. But I am stuck in processing for probably another month.

    #4354948 Reply

    @Sam yes. I checked it this morning and it told me they sent me a letter on 2/13.

    #4354899 Reply

    Does it say they are sending you a letter when you check your status? I changed banks this year as well – filed 2/3 and no update. Thank you!

    #4354888 Reply

    No update
    No letter
    No money
    No anythg
    Not happy

    #4354870 Reply

    Still waiting. Filed and accepted 1/27… Stuck in processing hell with no letter sent or info available.

    #4354665 Reply

    i getting a letter too at least they let the money go when u verify its u in a couple days

    #4354545 Reply

    I switched banks as well but have no update and haven’t got a letter :/

    #4354513 Reply

    Got an update this morning stating they sent me a letter. I’m sure it’s to verify my identity as I changed banks..

    #4353664 Reply

    H and r block kept my state

    #4352608 Reply

    I have given up on checking MN WMR. I guess I’ll just have to be surprised when it hits my account.

    #4352210 Reply

    @A. Evans it is precisely because of that very big family working credit they take extra time to review many returns. I usually take 1-3 months to get my refund with the 45 day maek being average.

    Processing as of 1/31 and STILL processing… 1st year filing in Minnesota
    I haven’t received any correspondence via postal mail

    This is beyond ridiculous
    I will give Minnesota some credit for their return being more financially favorable in comparison to other states I’ve lived in

    But I’m still annoyed

    #4351507 Reply

    @Taxpayer you must be talking about federal. MN doesn’t give a DDD just changes to sent.

    Woke up with no change, still on processing since 2/3. Now it‘s the weekend and a holiday on Monday, so probably no change until some time next week.

    #4351092 Reply

    Filed: 1/28
    Accepted: 1/28
    Was on “we are processing your return” since 2/5 on WMR.
    2/13: got a verify your ID in the mail. I verified online the same day.
    2/15: This morning I updated to DDD for 2/25

    #4350533 Reply

    *sigh* I guess we’ll see Monday is there is any movement.

    #4350523 Reply

    My bad I went to processing on 2/3 filed 2/2. So been on that step for over a week

    #4350522 Reply

    @Kallie I ALWAYS get my Federal long before my State, Even on the PATH. Like I said. it is 90 – 110 days EVERY year for my State except last year when I owed the state money

    #4350519 Reply

    1/27 here and still nothing! I am a PATHER you think it’ll update tonight?! Checked my transcripts nothing yet. For the past few years I’ve been getting them on the 22nd. Hoping for a 2/21 DDD

    #4350499 Reply

    Same boat as you guys, probably will get federal first. Filed 2/2 been on processing since 2/7

    #4350481 Reply

    @wade It is looking more like I will receive my federal before state 🙄

    #4350456 Reply

    @Kallie Agreed. Same here. Nothing has changed except every year I get that 25 to 50 cent per hour pay raise. So minimal it should not trigger anything.

    #4350427 Reply

    Sounds like someone is a little triggered. There should be a standardized process for across the agency. I have been claiming the same dependents every year with the same two employers. There shouldn’t be a hold up.
