Processing for 20 days now!February 20, 2019 at 12:46 am #4285194
Still stuck on preparing… little long for for preparing!?!February 19, 2019 at 11:53 pm #4285107
I’ve filed since feb 4th, it’s been two weeks now and no progress. My mom filed a day after me and got hers the following week both of her taxes came in less than 7 days. I’ve been stuck on processing for awhile now and as for the irs I finally got a date back to when it’s coming. Why is mn state taking so long ?February 19, 2019 at 5:10 pm #4283844
I also feel like I have been processing forever!!! No change and also no letter.February 19, 2019 at 4:27 pm #4283617
Anyone still stuck on processing?? I feel like I’ve been there for an eternity!!February 19, 2019 at 3:06 pm #4283079
Yeah I thought it was just me until I seen your post. I messaged them on Facebook and and asked houre long it usually takes. Got the generic response of course!!
This is what they said
We don’t have a set amount of time for any particular stage, but typically preparing your refund means our review of your return is complete and you should see your refund soon.February 19, 2019 at 2:42 pm #4283057
@himesmn04 Glad I’m not the only one is this boat, makes me somewhat optimistic that I’ll actually see a refund at some point. Fingers crossed it’s soon for all of us!February 19, 2019 at 11:14 am #4282107
I’m still stuck on preparing refund as well. I had checked sat morning around 1245am and it was still processing. When i woke up around 645am it switched to preparing finally but stuck there now. Last year I remember it went from preparing refund on 28th at 429pm.. than the 1st about 730am it switched to refund sent. Why in the world is it taking so long this year to switch steps for some of us!! I don’t owe anything anywhere. This is ridiculousFebruary 18, 2019 at 11:59 pm #4280383
I’ve been at “preparing return” since Saturday morning. Has anyone been to that stage on WMR and received a letter or not received their return? It’s been years since I was entitled to a state return, and the last time I was I vaguely remember updating on WMR to all “bars” then getting a letter saying I had an offset. My memory could be off though, this would have been six or seven years ago.February 18, 2019 at 7:30 pm #4279499
Dang it. Sounds like we are all in similar boats! Yes Wade I will do that. Even the WMR hasnt updated for me…it said letter sent the 5th…then letter sent 12th (because they sent to wrong address), but hasnt loved from there back to a normal process message.February 18, 2019 at 6:01 pm #4279331
@Cat- hang in there, i’m in the same boat;
I also have not received a letter, i’ve been checking for one, and am still processing. The note i have on WMR is that they’ll contact me if they need any further information. I just got my federal DDD- come on MN.February 18, 2019 at 1:28 pm #4278474
I haven’t received anything and nothing is on wmr. I don’t wanna call and give them a reason to flag me. Last year I had to get a tax advocate and did a hardship for them to give me my refund. Weeks passed and I had no codes and no letter. I am hoping I don’t have the same issues this year.February 18, 2019 at 1:18 pm #4278443
I got my letter from MN before MN WMR updated to let me know it was sent. It updated Friday, I had gotten my letter and did the ID verfiy Thursday.February 18, 2019 at 10:56 am #4278139
I am still waiting too. I wish I knew what was going on. Everyone else I know got theirs super fast.February 18, 2019 at 10:16 am #4278061
Still no update, filed and was accepted 1-29-19 have been processing since. No letter yet that I am aware of….anyone else??February 18, 2019 at 5:57 am #4277712
@Mary I dont know how long. They always just automarically. And this year they were super fast. Got my State in 4 days. But i would call them Tue morning to get a verbal verification that they recieved the fax and it should be a day or 2.February 17, 2019 at 10:21 pm #4277222
@jessica1873 thank you!! I guess I’ll just have to call. Wish they had an automated line to check things like federal.February 17, 2019 at 10:12 pm #4277212
It took a while for mine to show that a letter had been sent @CatFebruary 17, 2019 at 10:10 pm #4277202
Does MN have a offset number like federal?February 17, 2019 at 9:42 pm #4277171
Hey all! Does anyone know if the state wmr says if a letter was sent or not? Or do u just call and that’s when u find out. I’ve been processing for a couple weeks now and am getting antsy. Everyone else I know filed and got their refund in a week.February 17, 2019 at 4:55 pm #4276731
Anyone else state say released funds on 2/14/19 and have emerald card get their state yet?February 17, 2019 at 3:48 am #4275527
@wade perfect thank you! I faxed the stuff Friday. Any idea how long I’m looking at for processing?February 16, 2019 at 11:15 pm #4274891
Jonathan. How are you filing? Because that sounds like a scam in the worksFebruary 16, 2019 at 11:12 pm #4274887
Filed Jan 29
No update yet. H and r block says I have one however but I don’t trust them. Lol. Says ddd for 2/22/2019. Last year I received my state two weeks after my federal return.February 16, 2019 at 3:55 pm #4274282
What is the email address or fax number for the irs?February 16, 2019 at 3:52 pm #4274277
Question: when I go to set up direct deposit for my federal tax return, it asks me to provide an email address and/or fax number for the government agency who is issuing the refund. Does anyone know either of them?February 16, 2019 at 2:17 pm #4274133
Mine says it is processing still. Been that way since 1/28. Still just says I will be in this stage the longest and do not need to take any action even though I received an email from my advocate that I needed to provide proof of my 4 mo th old baby being my dependent. Mailed all that on Wednesday just a couple hours after receiving the email. They would have received it yesterday… smhFebruary 16, 2019 at 11:46 am #4273899
Refund was in my account this morning. Was sent on 2/15.February 16, 2019 at 8:18 am #4273340
Woke up to processing, we sent you a letter on Feb. 12th. Is this the same letter I got yesterday before WMR updated? That one was dated the 11th. I am assuming so.
So of course it said my refund could be delayed. Yay…February 16, 2019 at 8:06 am #4273322
@Mary. They automatically adjust me refund every single year. You will know because It will say refund sent on 4th bar and it will tell you the ammount of your refund with a message saying they sent a letter explaining the adjustment.February 16, 2019 at 7:55 am #4273295
Shock of the morning.
Filed & accepted 1/28
Checked it at 1245am on 2/16 stil processing ..
.just checked it at 650am
Hopefully everyone else gets there as well!! Didn’t think I would for another few weeks:)February 16, 2019 at 1:12 am #4272686
Filed – January 22nd
Accepted by MN – January 29th
Processing – January 29th to February 15th
I went to check my status today and although I’m still in processing, apparently they sent me a letter on February 12th. Same thing happened last year, it took over a month and a half for my state return. I received my Federal return after a week last year and this year. Come on Minnesota, can’t you just send me my return without issues every year?February 15, 2019 at 4:51 pm #4271949
@Tamra Yes, I am. Got a letter from MN today, but was still processing on WMR
Have been since the 29th as well.February 15, 2019 at 4:02 pm #4271888
Tamra R Poppy
Anybody still on processing?? Since the 29th.February 15, 2019 at 3:33 pm #4271829
Finally got my letter. It was for the k12 education credits. When we moved, I lost literally half of my belongings, because we had a short 4 weeks to be out. I called the man and explained that to him and that I dont have proofs at this time. He told me to send the voucher back with a note and they would adjust it, which is fine. I asked if I needed to claim hardship with a tax advocate, but he said that he will make note in the system and it should take just an extra day or two to process. So. With that being said, I’m happy to finally be getting somewhere. I hope that my explanation was good enough for them. My question now, is how do I check WMR to find out if its moving again? Since they’re going to adjust the amount, how will I know what the new amount is? Or do I just look with the original?February 15, 2019 at 1:59 pm #4271690
@Whitney thanks so much for that info!!!! Hopefully it’ll work quickly for me as well.February 15, 2019 at 1:48 pm #4271672
@Justine I had to do the same! My refund was in my account 3 days later.February 15, 2019 at 12:37 pm #4271542
Got a letter in that mail today from MN. They needed to verify my return. So I had to go on the site and put in a tax verification code…
Anyone else deal with that?? Should that be it?
So, now I got kicked back into processing… ugh.February 15, 2019 at 11:32 am #4271422

What is the latest during the day has someone moved to the next step? Stil stuck on processing just like last year. Not surprised honestlyFebruary 14, 2019 at 5:04 pm #4270108
This is super frustrating, my bank account is negative, my federal was here within a week (filed 1/28, accepted same day or 1/29), and still in stage 2 on their dumb website. Rent is late, bills are late, ughFebruary 14, 2019 at 3:54 pm #4270023
I am sorry guys. I didn’t think the first post posted, so I posted again. Saw around 1pm the first post showed up. Sorry about the double post.February 14, 2019 at 1:09 pm #4269408
I went through my stuff last year and noticed my state came on the shirt tails of my federal, within a couple days of each other. Accepted for MN 1/29 and pretty sure still processing, even though I haven’t checked yet. 😂February 14, 2019 at 10:43 am #4269594
So I never got my letter so it told me to call by today. I called. Spoke to a man named Tom. As I thought, they sent it to my old address. So he said they issued another to my new one. When I asked what it entails, he said it’s about some education expenses that were claimed. If it’s for sports, that’s fine. If it’s for computers I purchased (2 of them) or the insurance I had to pay for my kids’ iPads (2 of them), that’s another story. I got my computers at a pawn shop, and never knew that I could claim them. And the iPads my kids brought the teachers cash…so I never got receipt. Hell, I dont even care if they take that portion off! I dunno. He gave me number for tax advocate to speak of hardship, but said he couldnt just email me the letter.February 14, 2019 at 9:56 am #4269546
I am also on step 3. How long does it usually take to get to the final step ?February 14, 2019 at 9:26 am #4269485
Still processing for me.
Looked back at last year and my state piggybacked my federal. Wonder if something similar will happen. Other than that it’s almost been 3 weeks now.
Congrats to those who updated!February 14, 2019 at 8:56 am #4269448
Anyone switch from preparing refund to refund sent in the same day?February 14, 2019 at 8:28 am #4269419
Guess what??? Just went to processed now it’s on step 3 preparing refund.
Processing though 1/28/19-2/13/19
Processed 2/13/19 overnight
On stage 3 preparing refund 2/14/19
Message says we are processing your refund. You do not need to take any action
Once deposits I will let everyone know should be quick hopefullyFebruary 14, 2019 at 7:21 am #4269320
Last year I got my state after my federal. I have EIC on my federal expecting the same thing this year. Next week might be a good week.February 14, 2019 at 7:15 am #4269306
Good morning. I’m usually a lurker, but wanted to share.
Accept Fed 1/28 and Mn 1/29
Received Fed refund DD on 2/13–yesterday
Just checked MN refund about 30 minutes ago and refund is being prepared.
I didn’t get my Mn refund until October last year. Previous years it was always within 10 days and before Federal. But last year was a mess. Received a letter to send in docs. And had to wait until October.
Good luck to everyone. Just be patient. It’s coming.February 14, 2019 at 7:03 am #4269282
Allen read below most of us are in the same boat. Last year I got my Minnesota regular d after federal it took 4 weeks. This year is looking the same way. I was accepted on the 28th and still sitting in processing. I am not worried just waiting and getting mad that its taken so long and other get there in a week. Something is wrong with there processing it should be a time frame that is realistic. We all need the extra money.February 14, 2019 at 1:55 am #4269150
I E-file my refund January 28th and it’s been processing since then now February 14th…wth anyone else still waiting? Has me worried even though I’m pretty sure I did everything right.February 14, 2019 at 1:48 am #4269148
Thank you. I will sure keep all of my late payment and disconnect notices! This was supposed to be my time to just catch up and now I’m just feeling so damn defeated. It isnt fair.February 14, 2019 at 1:32 am #4269135
@mary a notice of the impending electricity shutoff would work!February 14, 2019 at 12:29 am #4269091
Thank you Justine, Shaun, and Mary for being so nice! She’s most definitely been the biggest surprise and just as much of a blessing as her older siblings! I couldn’t kill her by having an abortion and I could give her away because she’s my little tiny human that I was given to be her mother at this time whether I was ready or not! She’s not a pet that needs rehoming!February 14, 2019 at 12:27 am #4269087
Jessica what is proof of hardship? I know that they can expedite sometimes…but what would I need as proof? It’s been 8 days since they said a letter was sent. I need my money like…last month! I’m about to lose my damn vehicles and electric!February 14, 2019 at 12:24 am #4269085
Omg Jessica that’s just awful, and I’m so sorry this happened to you. I too, am still waiting on my damn letter, that was supposedly sent 2/5. I’m thinking they sent to my old address. I’m calling them tomorrow to find out what’s going on with mine. Im tired of this crap already. Is it 2020 yet?February 13, 2019 at 5:47 pm #4268763
Refund sent…direct deposit..when should it go in my account…sent 2/8/19February 13, 2019 at 5:35 pm #4268743
Refund sent…direct deposit..when should it go in my accountFebruary 13, 2019 at 5:01 pm #4268697
Jessica you probably pissed them off when you called and they flagged you to make you wait longer. I would not be surprised that this was deliberate. I am not sure why they can not verify it’s your kid with there social that is ridiculous. Sorry that happened to you and for being brave enough to have the kid. I am so mad I am also still processing.
Processing stillFebruary 13, 2019 at 4:05 pm #4268635
I am so sorry this happened to you!!!
Ugh, wish they would just be upfront with what the problems are.
