    We filed our MN return (joint) on 2/6/2018. Called MN Dept. of Revenue on 2/26 after website said a letter was sent to us with further instructions on 2/23. We received the letter on 2/27. It directed us to enter a code on their website to verify that it was really us that filed our taxes. Entered code the same day (2/27).

    It is now 3/18 and the same message is still shown – “We sent you a letter on 23-Feb-2018 requesting information we need to finish processing your return. If you responded to this letter
    – we will contact you if we have further questions.”

    We have contacted them twice in the past two weeks to inquire about what is taking so long. Both times we were told there was nothing more that we needed to do, they just need more time to process it.

    We are now on our 7th week of waiting. This is RIDICULOUS! Aside from work, we are also foster parents on a tight budget, and desperately need this money. The least they can do is tell us WHY! #BeyondFrustrated

    Denise I agree with you I have been processing for 6 weeks now, but like you said if we owed them we would be in collections or something by now. Just rediculous!!

    I filed weeks ago and my return has been sitting in processing. This return is taking way longer than it ever has in the past. I have been filing MN tax returns for over 25 years and never has my return taken this long. Because my husband works in Wisconsin we have to file WI taxes as well. Both Federal and WI monies have been in our bank account for weeks already. Where is my money that MN owes? What are the things that are checked during processing – making it take so long. If I owed the state the money for some reason I am sure they would not be patient or they would but they would charge interest and penalties – do we as taxpayers get that option?

    So here’s some BS for ya. March 6th I get an email in the afternoon from the MN dept if Rev saying that there’s nothing wrong with my return. Saturday I get a letter in the mail from them that was generated on 3/6 stating that I have to send in a crap ton of info to prove how much I made last year along with receipts and everything. So clearly who ever sent the email lied to me which is very irritating. So I have until the 21st to get this to them. Then I get the pleasure waiting ANOTHER 3 weeks for them to process THAT! I’m fairly certain they’re asking for this because the week prior I was a thorn in their sides wondering what was going on with my refund. I’ve never had to do this in years past. Really irritated.

    I filed 1/31 and was accepted the same day. I got a letter about 2 weeks later saying I had to Id verify by going on the where’s my refund site and putting in the special code that was mailed to me in the letter from them. I did that right away the same day I got it and have been stuck in processing ever since!!! It really is so unfair. I haven’t called anymore because they always say due to the fraud going on with identity theft, we have the right to take more time to process returns. The problem is, they have nothing saying how long, or there isn’t any laws yet that say how long they can hide behind that excuse!! At this point they can take forever if they feel like it!!!!!!! How unfair!!!

    Update, guys! Filed 1/19, accepted 1/22. Updated to preparing refund after sitting in processing this whole time for w2 verifications. (Had to fax over copies of all w2s last week.) Hopefully it won’t be long now.

    Lucky you @jason. I filed 1/29, accepted 1/30, Sat in “checking for accuracy” for a week or so before they revamped the site, and have been in “processing” ever since. It’s totally unfair how they do things.

    I filed electronically on 2/20/18 and it was “accepted ” that evening. It sat in the “processing” phase until 3/6/18 and it switched to “preparing your refund” and then this morning 3/07/18 I got the “we sent your refund.” Assuming it will be in my account tomorrow? I know it’s not what some of you are experiencing, just putting my approximate timeline here so people with similar dates can see what I experienced. 16-17 days?

    Still flipping processing. Unreal. Got ticked and emailed the MN Dept of Rev telling them that 5 weeks to process a 1040 is unacceptable as well as people who filed after I did already getting their refunds. Of course I get the same BS answer. I’ll be lucky if I see my refund by summer at this rate. Thanks Minnesota….for nothing. Might have to look into what my rights are….something has to be done to fix this. Never have I ever had to wait this long.

    My status changed from processing to processed and preparing refund. Any approximate timelines for a deposit? I saw that Kevin on 3/01 had the same change and I didn’t see when he got his refund.

    Nevensonmn I completely agree with you! I started sending email after email complaining. Knowing it wouldn’t result in anything but I figured since they are making us all play this waiting game, I can at least drive them crazy with complaining emails lol.

    Wow Lindsay….you’re lucky. Mine was filed 1/29, accepted 1/30, and in “processing” I sit for almost 5 weeks…..on a simple 1040 EZ. It’s not fair at all….I honestly think they’re just randomly picking and choosing people at this point :/

    @rudymn almost 5 weeks for me too. This is ridiculous. Honestly their whole BS story that some returns take longer to process is a joke. I’m beginning to wonder if we’re secretly being audited or something. I just can’t understand how a 1040EZ can take 5 weeks to process. I got my federal back a few weeks ago already and there were no issues with it. MN is just dragging it’s heels for whatever reason. My MN refund has never taken this long. I don’t get it.

    Not 100% sure, but I think it’s just stating that it can take the longest in that step of processing the return.. which everyone knows the processing and checking for accuracy is always the longest step… it’s almost like they think we are stupid.. sorry just my opinion. But they are taking longer than they normally do

    Nice! From everyone’s experience, when has the website updated? Is it only overnight like the site says or does it actually update throughout the day as well? I’m only checking in the morning assuming it’s only overnight, but had read a few places that It updated during the day as well? Not a big deal, jut something for me to think about while I wait in the Processing state for a month…. ;)

    Couldn’t say forsure, but It’s most likely some sort of verification letter…recently they have sent more of these out to verify identity…such as a marriage or kids if you are claiming something for a credit or whatever questions they might have..

    To me it’s a good sign that they are working on yours..I’ve been stuck on processing for over a month now.. when did you file your return?

    #4231292 Reply

    No surprise….still stuck on “processing”. Emailed the MN Rep of Rev. I don’t expect to hear anything back but it felt good to ask questions and give them a piece of my mind. They should have some system in place to notify us of any delays instead of just letting it sit there. It’s beyond frustrating.

    no I get it, stories was probably the wrong terminology, but on other sites, there are some know it alls, some have said the system only updates over night, where some get updates during the day. But like you said nobody outside of the revenue will understand how they operate lol just not happy with how the state is operating, they are holding up my return which is simple and easy and would not require that much checking…but who knows, i think they all took vacation days during tax time haha

    @AMA Well I dont know about getting different stories. There are some story tellers here, and there are a few know it alls, but I think most here just share their experience. For many they have only seen an overnight update in all their 30 plus years of filing. For others it only happens on a certain day. In the end everyones experience is different. It is those different experiences that just show us that the system is really %&#$ up. And no one really know what MNDOR thinks or how they operate.
