SD – is the state updating today, being Presidents Day and all?February 19, 2018 at 7:18 am #4223949
My state return is still sitting on processing…. Today is 2/19/18, I am so tired of checking everyday for no update today I will be calling them and asking them what the status is. This is so shameful and makes me sick. There is no reason that any state should take this long to process a simple tax return. This is beyond ridiculous and if I don’t get an update today I am telling them I am calling the local news….If they are short handed or have a problem the should be letting people know this. It’s our money and it should be paid in a timely matter…
On a good note my federal return will be in my bank account on 2/22/18 before my simple state return.
Filed return 1/23
checking accuracy 2/1 then changed to new status on 2/11 processingFebruary 18, 2018 at 12:31 pm #4223546
Thanks!! Yeah every year before the path stuff I got state before federal… grrrr is right lol!!!February 18, 2018 at 12:24 pm #4223540
Still hangin on the “processing longest step” garbage. Accepted 1/19 … Fed DDD 2/22 ridiculous at this point.February 18, 2018 at 12:20 pm #4223533
Right!! Fingers crossed for you too!!! MN is weird every year, last year i got my state within a week and the year before took forever and now this year forever. I hope i see an update Tuesday, but if i dont i will call for sure! Guess i called it that i would get federal before state…
.grrrrrr!February 18, 2018 at 11:56 am #4223521
I kniw exactly how you feel!! It does suck! Hopefully yippy won’t get a letter and you will just get your refund.. happened to me last year. Never got a letter and was stuck at cfa… until mid March. But i don’t get why it took so long to get a letter to verify you filed the return… just doesn’t make sense!! Fingers crossed for you!! And for myself they don’t need any other info 😒February 18, 2018 at 11:50 am #4223517
Thanks! Yeah at this point im expecting a letter…i swear filing early was just an opening for them to check everything very closely…just not sure what they would need…its frustrating too that you sit that long before they let you know what they need!February 18, 2018 at 11:28 am #4223509
I filed the 22nd… and my wmr updated yesterday with the status a letter was sent on the 13th. So the day I got the letter is the day it showed one was sent. I would call tue if you haven’t gotten a letter or your wmr has not updated to anythingFebruary 18, 2018 at 10:43 am #4223461
Since i filed 1/24 you guys think if they needed more info from me i would have known by now or gotten a letter already? How did you guys know they needed info? The one time i was audited was a letter but cant remember if it said anything online or not?February 18, 2018 at 4:12 am #4223267
@hinesMN04 From what I was told by the representative that’s exactly what it means I don’t know how true it is but if that is the case I think that’s some BS they take our money faithfully every check and we have to wait a ridiculous amount of time to hopefully get it back.February 18, 2018 at 3:15 am #4223257
So I’ll never know what the steps are at until i either get the deposit or i get another letter? That’s ridiculous haha. But that’s what MN likes to do to us! So crappy of them!!!February 18, 2018 at 2:58 am #4223252
@ himesMN04 Even after the ID Verify you may still be sitting on processing I did my I’D Verify over two weeks ago and guess what? I’m still sitting at processing it hasn’t budged yet. When I talked to one of the representatives about a week ago I was told that the they sent a letter message will remain on the WMR until next tax season. It will update but the message will not go no where and they don’t know how long after you verify your identity that it will move to the next step.February 18, 2018 at 2:35 am #4223245
First time I’ve ever had to verify with mn… said to answer questions and i didn’t have to answer any. . Just put the code and last name. . Submit and bam… now hopefully done and will be processed sooner than later!February 17, 2018 at 5:47 pm #4222986
Is it my refund status online that tells you more info is needed? And yeah the school supply thing is dumb, especially when there are people claiming way worse…i know i always file beginning of Feb and after i had called them im pretty sure they had to reduce amount and mail a check, not aure the whole time frame but i know i didnt get check until March…either way its frustrating…mine still says processing afyer sitting on CFA first forever, so not sure if im going to get a letter or its just taking that ling to process…but since i filed 1/24 iys frustrating!February 17, 2018 at 5:31 pm #4222971
How long did iake to get your refund after y sent proof?February 17, 2018 at 3:40 pm #4222862
AMA it was for school suppliesFebruary 17, 2018 at 1:45 pm #4222721
I will see if it is in the mail box today and let you know.if it is just that I don’t care take it off. whatever. next time ill save receipts. I honestly didn’t think it was that big of a deal but I’m guessing mn doesn’t want to give you more money than they have tooFebruary 17, 2018 at 12:32 pm #4222613
If it is for expenses like school supplies, books, peper, pencils etc or ifnyou stated there were computer expenses then they would have you send reciepts and if you dont have them then they just remove that credit from the return, which honestly depending what you claimed is probably $100 or less…still sucks when it happens though!February 17, 2018 at 12:17 pm #4222573
It says it qas sent on thr 2-16 infiled 2/1 im guessing you are right it is child education expenses but i don’t think i have those receipts anymore. I know on thr site it says if you don’t they give u a depreciated value or something. Thats fine i can live with that.February 17, 2018 at 11:23 am #4222512
When did you file and when did you recieve the letter? I feel if someting was wrong or needed i would have already gotten a letter since i filed 1/24…but the letter could be minor, maybe just need to verify info..i got audited one year over child education expenses so just needed to provide receipts for purchases, which wasnt bad accept waiting on refund for what seemed forever! Just weird how not much has change accept only one w2 this year instead of 2, last year got state on feb 6th…. just weird seeing no changesFebruary 17, 2018 at 10:12 am #4222409
got a notice they sent me a letter for more information?? I have never had one of these beforeFebruary 17, 2018 at 9:34 am #4222362
I got my federal set to deposit next week also.
.at this point im almost just waiting for a letter from the state, not sure why else it would process this long…grrrFebruary 17, 2018 at 8:36 am #4222246
@t. Monday’s a holiday so they may not be processing :(
on a good note my Federal was processed and I’ll have it in my bank next week. How is it that the federal government, who procceses more returns than the state, moves faster in processing than the MN Dept of Revenue? 🤔February 16, 2018 at 10:52 pm #4221515
Same old, same old.
Maybe Monday, I guess.February 16, 2018 at 9:30 am #4220364
@ Krystal, glad people are seeing movement….i changed to the new screen it seems when everyone else did and now i am just sitting there….the site says they update over night which i dont think they do cause when i originally went into CFA if went into that stage between 8-9 i believe….at this rate i will have my federal before state and filed 1/24…February 16, 2018 at 9:16 am #4220318
@AMA same boat… updated from path to “being processed” with 2/22 ddd for federal… my golden birthday is 2/28. No MN state movement. Ugh….February 16, 2018 at 9:16 am #4220314

As of now still no update for me, my federal moved from Path and I have a DD for 2/22 yet (per transcripts)nothing from state…hopefully will still update something today but this is getting old….February 15, 2018 at 7:38 pm #4219341
This is so ridiculous it’s been 17 days with no update I called today he pulled up my acct he said no flags just to wait basically, I hope it comes this weekend with everyone talking about this big updateFebruary 15, 2018 at 2:27 pm #4218811
Yeah i got the new screen yesterday too so hoping for changes soon!February 15, 2018 at 2:09 pm #4218773
No worries AMA. Anyway if you notice there are already some posting they went to the new screen yesterday and today already updated to another new screen we have not seen yet which says processed. So we are almost there.February 15, 2018 at 1:47 pm #4218699
Thanks Wade! and i will take it as a good thing, i dont see any reason why it be be needing additional information, plus you would think you would have gotten a letter already, so maybe overnight will have finished processing then!February 15, 2018 at 1:18 pm #4218567

That is what I am saying. Everyone is worried this new look is bad or the same as CFA redesigned. But really its a good thing. Once we lose the orange bar from CFA to blue processing it will go really fast unless….. they update it with a letter has been sent message. this new look is a good thing…February 15, 2018 at 1:05 pm #4218503
Last night when I checked it, it said “processing” with the “this is the longest step” message, and when I check early this morning it had moved from “processing” to “processed”February 15, 2018 at 12:51 pm #4218457
I have gotten it on different days. Last year it was sent Friday and hit my acct Sat morning. 2 years ago I got it on a Thursday. So I think it can be sent any day.February 15, 2018 at 12:33 pm #4218422
Thanks for that info, it does help knowing that other people seen this and is not new as of yesterday, so maybe that does mean we are moving in the right direction, either way probably wont see any money show up now until next week unless there is a miracle tommorrow…does anyone know if MN deposits on certain days or can it be any day of the week? last year i know i got it February 6th which was a Monday.February 15, 2018 at 12:18 pm #4218375
I was also confused. I went to the new processing look, and it has all the tell tale signs of a new kind of CFA… But I just chatted with 2 of my friends who got their state refund. They said that last week they went to processing and it was the same new look we see now, and 1 or 2 days later their refund was sent. It seems that once they are done checking for accuracy you move to the new processing stage where they will either approve your refund and send it or they will ask you for more information. Putting this into perspective, I remember last year I was in CFA until April. Then when it updated it went to processing with a letter sent message. So from what I gather in speaking with friends who have already gone through this new look, we have finished with CFA and are now processing. I know it looks to be another way of tricking us that we are actually still CFA but now is when we will either get our refund or a message saying a letter has been sent. If we get no message saying a letter has been sent then I am certain now that this new look is really processing and since I don’t have the message a letter has been sent I should get my return any day, I say give it a couple days to see whats what.February 15, 2018 at 11:53 am #4218306
did yours change to processing or is it the new site look? mine is at processing too but is jsut the new site look and is same as checking accuracy unfortunatelyFebruary 15, 2018 at 11:43 am #4218275
Last year I got my state and federal back on 2/22. I can’t remember the timeline of processing for last year. This year I submitted my taxes on 1/18. Accepted on 1/18. Checking for accuracy on 1/30 and just changed to Processing on 2/14. I don’t see why MN takes so long to issue the refund. It’s OUR money not theirs!February 15, 2018 at 11:07 am #4218186
Yeah my mom got hers back today. And filed a week or so after me too. Ridiculous!!February 15, 2018 at 10:40 am #4218124
I filed my parents a week or so after mine and they got their state and federal back in less than 7 days! i have the PATH credits so my federal is delayed anyway…and have heard from other sites of people getting their state back too…for me it is either they are auditing me (really no reason why) or it is delayed too just because of the credits so they are taking their time to make sure it is all good…i think jinxed myself filing only a week earlier this year!February 15, 2018 at 10:19 am #4218100
I wish they would communicate something at least…lack of communication is frustrating. Does anyone know people who have already gotten their state back? I haven’t been able to find anyone who I have talked to in person yet who has…it seems like a larger issue of delays maybe…
BTW I got my federal return back yesterday…February 15, 2018 at 9:48 am #4218045
Still no change here, i started at checking for accuracy on Feb 1st also…cant imagine what the delay would be, and i feel if it was due to audit would have gotten a letter by now….either way it is getting old, I will probably fall over when i see it move from the “processing” screen!February 15, 2018 at 9:40 am #4218036
No change.February 15, 2018 at 7:41 am #4217853

this really is ridiculous. the fact that they changed the status to what they changed it to, with the this take this process takes the longest. it’s like others have said they’re basically saying leave us alone. they got caught stooping the pooch and they don’t want to own up to it.
I wonder if the local media is aware of this at allFebruary 15, 2018 at 2:52 am #4217554
Wow they totally tricked all of us.. They changed the name on the PDF it said checking for accuracy before.
Jan 23 sent in turbo tax
Jan 29th accepted
Feb 1st checking for accuracy
Feb 14th changed checking accuracy to new name processing with nice message saying this step takes the longest so still no progress and at same step as before….
Just beyond mad about this…February 15, 2018 at 2:52 am #4217549
Look at this PDF they changed it to processing….
How crazy is this!!!February 14, 2018 at 11:35 pm #4217541
Yeah looking at it again they just changed the name of checking accuracy to processing and the color with a nice message saying this taking the longest is because we all are asking about our refunds. So basically we all have been tricked….. This is really just a joke…..February 14, 2018 at 9:02 pm #4217471
Glad it isnt just me! I didnt think it was progress…just a new look…thanks MN Revenue 😤February 14, 2018 at 8:11 pm #4217441
New screen – same bar.
Basically says… LEAVE US ALONE!February 14, 2018 at 7:58 pm #4217436
Mine updated to the new and approved style screen to “processing” (longest step) message this morning…. never seen this. Weird as hell. Good movement? 🤔February 14, 2018 at 7:52 pm #4217429
Mine switched today to from CFA to Processing with the nice message about this step taking the longest….to me this is the same as CFA, maybe they updated how the site looks?? Doesn’t seem like much progress to me…
Accepted – 2/1
CFA – 2/2
Changed to the new looking processing screen this afternoon 2/14February 14, 2018 at 7:08 pm #4217397
@ SD does the check refund look different for you too? Im not sure if it changed to processing or its just a new look, mine says processing but then next step wpuld be preparing refund and then refund sent…so for me seems like its still where i was at but new look…anyone else see this too???February 14, 2018 at 7:01 pm #4217387
My also changed to processing today 2-14-18 got a valentine present. It has a nice message there that you will be in this stage the longest!! Lol really
Filed Jan 23rd
Checking accuracy Feb 1st
Processing on Feb 14th
So the wait continuesFebruary 14, 2018 at 5:52 pm #4217322
Accepted on the 23rd.
Still sitting in purgatory aka CFA
I also have claimed EIC and CTC
IF i owed money in, they’d want it right away.
lastly watch out for the scanners they’re out there already I’ve already got a couple phone calls from people claiming to be the IRS and it some cases are actually sending out quote fake checksFebruary 14, 2018 at 2:37 pm #4217079
Still CFA. This is ridiculous. I sent them a message on FB and got the same BS answer. There’s no way they’re worked on in the order they’re received because some people who filed after I did already have their returns. If there’s nothing wrong with the return then I guess I don’t understand what the hold up is. My last response to the MN dept of rev was: So at this point I should expect my state refund some time in April or May? Go figure…no response.February 14, 2018 at 12:25 pm #4216894
I imagine you’ve left this forum (haha )!
You give me hope! We have the same filed and accepted dates. No update for me though.February 14, 2018 at 10:28 am #4216725
I don’t think we are affected because my mom’s state was sent today and she had eic.. but im still stuck cfa!! UghFebruary 14, 2018 at 10:11 am #4216694
Glad some people have been seeing some movement…just curious how many people still waiting on state are/were affected by the PATH for federal? I know people say they are not related at all but cant help to think it does play somewhat a part in it all…either way it is frustrating as i have no change yetFebruary 14, 2018 at 9:44 am #4216663
Mine finally changed to procesing. I talked yesterday about only checking the site once a week. Obviously I broke my rule …lol.
CFA 2/1 – 2/14
Processing as of 2/14February 14, 2018 at 9:42 am #4216659
Zero sense. Mine is still CFA also.February 14, 2018 at 9:33 am #4216645
Still on checking for accuracy.
Same story for everyone I think. Emailed them and this is there response
Thank you for your email. Each return we receive has to be processed. In processing, returns are worked in the order received and the time varies based on the return.
Our “Where’s My Refund?” system will allow you to track the stages of your return and will give you the date your return has finished processing and the date your refund is issued.
So how does that make any sense when people our claiming they filled after my date and there received there refunds…
Checking accuracy on Feb 1st
Thank you,February 13, 2018 at 7:24 pm #4216055
Mine always updates at the same time between 8-9. Every year, as far as everyone else, idk. Fyi — still CFAFebruary 13, 2018 at 3:09 pm #4215732
I found this…hopefully it’ll be helpful but idk…at any rate…it would be nice to know what exactly they’re looking for to determine accuracy or to avoid fraud. I’m beginning to wonder if maybe they’re just doing more audits than usual? Idk. I just don’t understand why it can take 3+ weeks for an application to be processed when some are going right through. Here’s the link I found:February 13, 2018 at 2:14 pm #4215687
I couldn’t be lucky enough. Lol.
CFA.February 13, 2018 at 1:57 pm #4215669
I’m still stuck on cfa… but my mom’s just updated after 1130… to processing. They update through out the day not just in the morning. I checked it for her at 1130 and it still showed cfa.February 13, 2018 at 10:24 am #4215307
Still no update here either. It’s beyond annoying. Does it really take 3 weeks to “check for accuracy”? It’s bad enough that my federal refund is delayed because of the new law put in place…but now MN is taking their sweet time. I get that they want to make sure that everything is legit but when you file on TurboTax you have to put down your driver’s license info and what not. Super frustrated.February 13, 2018 at 10:00 am #4215268
[email protected] still nothingFebruary 13, 2018 at 9:25 am #4215222
Mn updates between 8-9am ct which is Minnesota timezone. No update here. 😂February 13, 2018 at 9:06 am #4215202
I saw someone on another board get an update 20 minutes ago to a ddd of today.
I, of course, did not.February 13, 2018 at 8:59 am #4215191
At this point I’m thinking of switching to checking weekly instead of daily. no point in getting annoyed daily.February 13, 2018 at 8:26 am #4215155
Filed my return with ctc eic and childcare tax credit received refund within 5 days. Filed gf and sister return same day, stuck at cfa. Really annoyed. Should charge them interest like the would is if we owed
