    All I know is ever since I started e-filing with Taxact about 12 years ago it has been up and down. Back in the day I usually saw my return within 7-10 days. Up until 2015. 2015 it was 92 days. 2016 is 103 days, 2017 it was 91 days, 2018 94 days. Last year was a fluke. It was 4 days from filing to refund sent. It is also the only year I have owed the state money for a little parking ticket that went to collections. Wow, they processed me in 4 days to make sure they got that, now this year I am prolly back on the 90 day range. I have come to expect it. so I am never disappointed I guess. Well time to go to KwikTrip and get some pop.

    Imagine coming to a forum for discussing when tax returns will arrive, and complaining about people discussing when tax returns will arrive lol

    Tax refunds are not promised or guaranteed by any date so people should not be complaining after waiting one week. Seriously people, one week? It will arrive when it arrives. In the meantime go out and do something, enjoy a crisp morning, take a walk, read a good book. If you are having money problems and counting on your return to cure them, that is unfortunate but not the problem of the people that process returns. If they still have not been sent after a couple couple of months then I can understand complaints. The government has seriously been cutting jobs in this and other sectors so please cut these workers some slack.

    @Savery I have filed in this state for 30 Years no ryme nor reason for when u get them back just keeping checking your mailbox they might want u verify yourself

    #4349863 Reply

    Ugh. I e-filed on 1/23. Started processing the first day they opened. Still processing as of this morning… So annoying because I really need the money. This is my first year filing in MN, is that possibly why it’s taking so long?

    Whoops meant to say letter was mailed to me in 2-7. Got it on 2-12

    #4349540 Reply

    My state was accepted on January 27th. Then got a letter mailed on 2-10 to verify my identity and that I indeed filed my return. Verified on 2-12. FINALLY says preparing refund! I did change my bank account this year and also my tax preparer software. MN is taking extra precautions this year to protect people from fraud.

    #4349497 Reply

    @Kiwi Many filed before 2/4, on 2/4, and many after, that are still on processing. Some have their money already, some have moved to preparing refund or refund sent. MN be tripping this year, no rhyme or reason lol

    #4349342 Reply

    Anybody filed 2/4 and still on processing?

    #4349166 Reply

    @Jeus it didn’t take long at all, but I didn’t file the amendment until September. Might want to wait until tax season is over to file the amendment so it will go quickly

    #4349109 Reply

    I filed 1/27 and still at processing!

    #4349055 Reply

    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.

    #4349056 Reply

    So the. Has anyone who filed on 2/3 gotten passed 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.

    #4348428 Reply

    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.

    #4348407 Reply

    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.

    #4348043 Reply

    I’m meant to say processing not preparing…

    #4348009 Reply

    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.

    Accepted 1/28
    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.
