    Efiled 1/23
    Processing up until today, now I’m at preparing refund. Anyone know how long this step takes?? This is for my state, my federal is still processing.

    #4349036 Reply


    @hlj did it take a longtime for them to work on it cause it was amended because they put me as a non resident and I didn’t get that credit

    #4348998 Reply


    @ Sam it updates overnight, in the morning, and at night. So any time really.

    #4348582 Reply


    Does MN only update over night or does it update during the day?

    #4348569 Reply


    Same here guys. Just checked and still processing. I think for PATHERS we will see an update by Saturday with a DDD for the 21st.

    Same information with dependents and employer. The difference is just I made more money and different bank.

    The struggle is real.

    I really do not get what the hold up is. MN should do better. My Federal will arrive before my state and that has never happened before.

    #4348418 Reply


    Early filed accepted 1/23/2020- went to processing on 1/27/2020- nothing
    i just contacted them Tuesday and filed for hardship, sent the documentation Tuesday night and no word from the advocate. Seems everything is slow.

    Good Grief. How long can it possibly take to process a single W2? Been processing since the 28th and could REALLY use the money right now.

    I’m starting to wonder if I’m not going to get audited or made a mistake somewhere. Doesn’t make sense to see no progress at all :(

    I also used a new bank account this year. I wonder if that’s the cause of the delay?

    #4346766 Reply


    @ Kallie, I also changed my checking account this year so maybe they see that and have to verify information

    #4346761 Reply


    Accepted 1/27, been in processing ever sense. I’ve never had this long of a wait. Usually the refund is sent the next week. Not sure what the hold up is this year.

    Still processing!
    Most years I have my state within a couple weeks. Huge bummer that’s not the case this year.

    #4346302 Reply



    Same for me. Only thing that changed was my checking account!

    #4346246 Reply


    I have been processing since 02/01 no movement and the only thing I changed was my checking account…this is sad cuz they are quick to take your money but slow at returning it :(

    #4346224 Reply


    @Jesus Yes I’ve filed an amended return in the past. Waited until after I got my original returns back though, so they wouldn’t be held up. It was a fairly easy process, and I ended up getting a small bonus refund out of it.

    #4346201 Reply


    Accepted 2/3 and STILL in processing as of a minute ago. C’mon state hurry up! I already have to wait until basically March to get my federal return because of EIC and Child tax credit.

    Been on Processing since the 29th. Checked a couple hours ago and it was still on step 2. Just checked and finally Preparing Refund.

    @kallie @wade
    Yea i may have gotten it fast this year and previous years but last year it took 2 months. So its just completely hit or miss no matter your situation, when u file, etc. They just do what they want when they want. Like a toddler haha

    #4342471 Reply


    @Kallie Yeah, I dont think there is any system in place of consistency. It is just hit or miss, and for most of us it is miss more times than not. Of course there will always be the one or 2 that chime in, “oh i get it fast every year”. Good for them. For most of us, it is a long wait and never consistent year after year.

    #4342442 Reply


    @wade123 I believe last year it was well over a month but the year prior I believe within 7 days. This year I changed from a daily to a weekly as my cycle date changed from a 04 to a 05. I guess we’ll just play the waiting game.

    #4342425 Reply


    @Kallie I am not really sure why. There will always be a few that get it fast, a few that get it slow based on big and small but out the millions of taxpayers that dont come to this site I wonder what their experience is. All I know is my experience. I have gone back and checked. in 2012, I got it 7 days after filing. 2013 I got it 6 days after filing, 2014 I got it 9 days after filing, 2015 I got it 6 days after filing. 2016 I got 3 months after filing because i added school credits and I was audited, but still got the full refund. 2017 I got it 83 days after filing, 2018 I got it 68 days after filing, 2019 i got it 4 days, and thats because I had a collections from the state I am sure of, and now, i filed 1/13. accepted 1/27, went to processing 1/28 and am stuck there ever since. It seems ever since the Fed started their PATH MN has also shifted from an average 1 week to 1-2 months. At least when I look back on my history, the long years coincide with the passing of PATH at least for me. And clearly they do NOT process them on a first come first serve no matter what they say.

    I think I had this issue last year but my refund was as big as it was this year🤷🏽‍♀️ I did earn more – I would have to compare last years return. I am jelly though you got it 5 days. Nothing changed in my dependents or employers. Same information other than earnings.

    #4342244 Reply


    I also filed the eic and the actc, no offsets or collections owed. I got back the exact refund I was due.

    #4342243 Reply


    I have a large refund every year and this year its even larger and it only took 5 days to go from filing to refund sent so I’m not sure that thats the issue.

    #4342172 Reply


    Why didn’t I update this morning?! Ugh….this is insane! I usually receive my Mn so quickly!

    #4342123 Reply


    @Kallie. Yes that is the case. I get the working family credit so it is big every year. And every year they take extra time to review it because of that credit. Also every year they feel free to adjust it a little all on their own. It usually comes in less than what was filed. They end up sending a letter saying it was adjusted because the working family credit was miscalculated by my tax software. But that is BS. The tax software bases it on the forms Minnesota provides to them. No wonder we have a surplus every year!!! The only time I got my refund from MNDOR fast was last year. 4 days, that’s right 4 days!!! from filing to refund sent. And that was only because I had a small parking ticket that my little town sent to collections. So its always better to have a small collections by the state and boom!!! you process real fast so they can get theirs. Otherwise we wait 1-3 months

    #4342084 Reply


    Just a quick question. For all those who has their returned process did you get a big return? I am scheduled to receive a big refund and just seeing if that was the case for the lack of movement 🤪 filed 1/27 accepted 1/28 still in step 2!

    #4342046 Reply


    Some people took 2-3 days before it moved to step 4. But if it helps…I checked mine at 7am and it was at step 3 and an hour later it moved to step 4. So you could check it throughout the day. Either way it takes a couple days to reach your bank after your refund status moves to Sent.

    #4342042 Reply


    Mine moved from step 3 to step 4 overnight.

    I feel the pain. I’m still on step 2 and so far as I know, nothing is wrong with my return. I think the system just hates me….
