Mine was processed on Feb 16th but still no deposit. I hope the Amex Express network being down for two days didn’t mess it as I had it going to our bluebird card.February 20, 2018 at 12:42 pm #4225221

What does the FalsePlease allow 7 to 14 days to receive your refund mean ?February 17, 2018 at 8:46 am #4222274
@ Jjstac : we all seemed to of had that message before getting our approval message. On Mississippi website there are how to videos that says that message means your done processing just waiting to get a ddd for your refund.February 17, 2018 at 7:33 am #4222123Jjstac
What does being reviewed mean? It’s also says you have to allow up to 90 days.. There has only been one year it took till August to get my refund. Every year since, I always get it before ferderal. I don’t understand what is going on.February 17, 2018 at 5:56 am #4221978CrssyPoo
Just received my MS state refund….it said approved on Feb 14-allow 7 to 14 business days, but went in on today.
My boyfriends refund shows False Please allow 7-14 days as well. Just crazyFebruary 16, 2018 at 11:52 am #4220572Josh
Tiffany, mine said that yesterday, now today it says my refund was approved like everyone else’s.February 16, 2018 at 9:48 am #4220409Tiffany
What does it mean if your MS State tax message says : FalsePlease allow 7 to 14 business days to receive your refund.February 15, 2018 at 7:38 am #4217838
@daniel. Same here. About the update today. Mine cleared the 14 th also. I hope we all don’t have to wait the 7 to 14 days thoughFebruary 15, 2018 at 7:38 am #4217835February 15, 2018 at 6:35 am #4217768
I need someone else to post so i can vent without double posting lol.
EDIT: whoops, didnt check before posting. seeing this now on tap
Your refund has been approved. Your tax return for the year 2017 cleared our system on February 14, 2018. Please allow 7 to 14 business days to receive your refund.February 13, 2018 at 6:52 pm #4216026
Everyone is right, Though, i had a look at those videos, and they are several years out of date. I remember the refund search function looking like that, 2-3 years ago. Basically, they really dont want us asking about statuses, as they repeatedly say, “our reps will not have any additional information” and basically not to ask lol.. The MS DOR facebook page is a waste of space, with little to no activity, and no help at all. There IS some kind of difference this year, like i said, i’ve always been done by now, and I have not spoken to, or seen a single user that isn’t in the same situation. It’s rediculous, drives me nuts, especially because we could really use our little bit of money coming, im sure everyone here can relate. Last week, i was hoping for a refund by my birthday, ( sunday) and this week, Im hoping it will be sometime this week, So idk, im ranting, and venting and rambling, thats all i can do, and check status every hour it seems.. I cannot say that I am surprised by the useless officials at the Dept of Revenue in the state that is 30 years behind everyone, mississippi!
Edit: Also forgot to realize that when we finally DO update, they will have an additional week tagged onto the extremely hard job of money transfering to our accounts. And we must wait several more weeks if we dont hear anything , for a tracer! ugh.
/Rant v 2.0February 13, 2018 at 1:24 pm #4215610
Agreed. I don’t think it took this long last year either. And if my Mississippi refund is still processing then why do I have the message of 90days. On their site on the how to videos it clearly states that my message means that I’m done processing and waiting on dddFebruary 13, 2018 at 1:21 pm #4215601Amber
Okay but my federal return was processed before the 29th.
Even so, it didn’t take this long last year.February 13, 2018 at 12:39 pm #4215550
Just called and talked to someone at Mississippi Department of Revenue. He was nice and all and looked up my refund and said it is still being processed. To allow 4 to 6 weeks for processing to be done. Also that they didn’t start processing returns until January 29th like the irs.February 13, 2018 at 8:58 am #4215188
Folks up there supposed to be doing our refunds are probably on bourbon st at mardi gras … this is crazy, i’ve always been done before the middle of feb..February 12, 2018 at 7:11 pm #4214706marie reed
I don’t know of anyone who has gotten a refund from the state of Mississippi yet! This is awful!February 12, 2018 at 5:24 pm #4214594
Has anyone talked to anyone over the phone at the MS DOR ?February 12, 2018 at 3:04 pm #4214385
Yawn…February 9, 2018 at 8:28 pm #4211899D’Quita
If you have a TAP account it tells you if your return has been processed, mine has been processed but doesn’t have a deposit date anywhere in sight.February 9, 2018 at 6:57 am #4210667
@ Daniel. I was wondering the same thing about weekends. I looked on My Block and it is giving me an estimated date of 2-20-18 for Mississippi refund. Still says 90 days for me.February 8, 2018 at 10:49 pm #4210509Amber
Still says being reviewed for me too, but it says 30 days instead of 90. I got my federal refund on Tuesday.
I normally get my state refund and federal refund within days of each other.February 8, 2018 at 9:07 pm #4210462
Does anyone know if MS dor issue refunds during the weekend?
Doubtful.. but im hoping so.February 8, 2018 at 7:16 pm #4210388melissa
Still saying review. ugggggFebruary 8, 2018 at 6:57 pm #4210379
No updates here, still being “reviewed” ugh. i check it like 5 times a day lol. Was hoping it would be before my bday but probably gonna end up being next week. MS is so slow :(February 8, 2018 at 2:26 pm #4209958
Any updates on anyone’s state refund yet. Mine is still the same.February 6, 2018 at 3:03 pm #4207548February 6, 2018 at 2:56 pm #4207538
@Monica thats just the standard message everyone gets when they are processing the return. I have been stuck on that status for a week now.February 6, 2018 at 2:46 pm #4207524Monica
I just checked the status of my refund. Turbo tax says accepted for both at state and federal, but when I went into the MS State Tax webpage it’s says “it has been received and is being reviewed. If any additional info is needed they will contact me. Allow 90 days to receive your refund” My question is, Does this mean my refund was rejected? Am I being audited? Will this delay my refund?February 6, 2018 at 12:23 pm #4207299
Mine finally shows up as processing. Our state is just horribly slow. I have always got my fed weeks before state. No credits so fed is usually fast. Tap website shows my refund as a balance but nothing pending as far as DD. Im assuming that ms dor is the one that deposits the money and not sbtpg. I cant rememberFebruary 6, 2018 at 9:43 am #4207017
@Michelle same thing mine says. I pretty convinced now that ms doesn’t approve until after federal is approved…February 6, 2018 at 9:38 am #4206999
This is what mine says exactly. “Your return was received and is being reviewed. If additional information is needed, you will be contacted by mail. Please allow 90 days for your return to complete processing.”February 6, 2018 at 9:34 am #4206989
@daniel mine says received and being reviewed. I don’t think they release until federal is approved. Last year I had to ID Verify and after I was verified my state deposited a week before my federal deposited.February 5, 2018 at 1:01 pm #4206222
Any updates? Mine was initially rejected fixed through turbo tax. Then accepted. However TAP shows no refund for my social was found.February 3, 2018 at 7:48 pm #4205197
@michelleg @marie reed If you go to the website there are training videos and one of them is how to use the refund status site. In that video it clearly says that message means your return has been processed. So i’m thinking that Ms won’t release until your federal has cleared. Last year I had to ID Verify and my state didn’t budge until after my federal cleared, i got it 11 days before my federal deposited into my account.February 2, 2018 at 9:49 am #4203667
@ Marie Reed. My Mississippi state return is showing the same thing. Have you found out anything yet.February 1, 2018 at 7:10 pm #4203250marie reed
I filed Mississippi on 1/29/18. Checked the website and it says “your return has been received and is being processed. Please allow 90 days”. Is this just a generic message for MS filers?January 29, 2018 at 9:42 am #4200621
@daniel same here my MS return is still pending last year i received my federal tax refund before my state tax refund. In the past it only took 2 weeks for state to process my return.January 28, 2018 at 4:59 pm #4200450
Filed on the 18th, Turbo tax says my fed was accepted (however no email from irs, yet) Wmr shows nothing. State shows pending, MS seems like they always slow when it comes to processing.
Where my MS people at?July 22, 2017 at 1:21 am #4197390P
Filed through a Preparer 4-14-17 efiled.State law says they must send return in 90 days,its been 99 days.Automated system only says being reviewed.Time to start raising cane.March 3, 2017 at 8:11 am #4188604Jess
I filed my 2017 tax return on 02/27/2017 (4 days ago). I was accepted that same afternoon and knew it would take weeks. Out of pure curiosity, I decided to check the Mississippi status website early Wednesday morning and found my refund had been approved and cleared their system on 02/28. I received my MS State income tax refund in my bank account this morning. I also received an 846 Refund Issued code on my Account Transcripts. This is a great day, but next week will be even better!!February 9, 2017 at 8:34 am #4163448Robin
State taxes went from approved will receive within 5 days to approved, cleared our system on feb 7, will receive within 5 days. Anyone know how long it actually takes?February 8, 2017 at 9:15 am #4161880Brokejoke
Submitted/accepted feb 1
Approved feb 8
They usually stick to that 5-7 day time frame. Should have payment next Wednesday. Hopefully sooner, as this seems to be a smoother process this year.February 8, 2017 at 7:18 am #4161776MSRazorbackPhD@msrazorckbackphd
I checked this morning and it was finally approved.February 8, 2017 at 6:56 am #4161772
Check your statusFebruary 6, 2017 at 8:00 am #4159551MSRazorbackPhD@msrazorckbackphd
Any new updates? Ours says “reviewd,” but it always says that. It tends to release after federal is DD.January 25, 2017 at 4:54 pm #4152748MS-Girl@ms-girl
Hi Everyone! I filed with H&R Block on 01/12/17. I was allowed to file my federal but State is still sitting there. They haven’t emailed me yet to say I can go ahead and e-file my state return. Anyone else having a problem or is this an H&R Block problem ?January 24, 2017 at 10:59 pm #4152453
Figures ms is at bottom of the list Lol… anyones return still pending ?January 25, 2016 at 10:38 am #41166813rd yr early
Me either. But looking over my past returns I never get a deposit before mid to late February.January 23, 2016 at 8:56 pm #4116241Keshia
I still haven’t been acceptedNovember 2, 2015 at 3:01 pm #4113517Sam C
I eFiled through TurboTax on February 12… so almost 9 months ago now. It shows everything “Accepted” and I got my federal refund in the usual time frame. I found myself going through the “where’s my refund” tracker on the MS DOR website over and over from then until the 90 day mark and beyond Eventually I kind of wrote it off and figure I’d get the refund eventually or not but whatever. (Basically, I’d have a happy $600 surprise if it ever did come in, but I didn’t have time to fool with it anymore. I figure the state is counting on a lot of people not wanting to jump through hoops to get in touch with anyone at the DOR.) Finally had some time today to really sit down with all my ducks in a row and chew some people out… called 601-923-9089 (found the number on this thread) and almost immediately go through to someone. I told her it had been nearly 9 months since I filed and I needed to get my refund NOW. She asked for my social and put me on hold for less than a minute. Then, she came back on and said to allow 7-10 days for the refund to post to my account. I was shocked… I asked if it would be direct deposited still into the originally specified account, and she said it would. We shall see… are they really just holding money until they get a call?!? WORST. STATE. EVER.July 13, 2015 at 5:57 pm #4112600L Carlisle
I sent in electronically our state taxes January 25, 2015, and as of July 12, 2015, we have still not received our refund. All calls to the state are the stupid electronic voice, and just state our return is under review. What’s up with this?July 8, 2015 at 5:16 pm #4112573Anonymous
I sent my return in the first week of February. We had to mail it in along with copies of my federal return, because we file multiple states, and there is some rule about that, not sure, my accountant tells me. We sent the full federal return, all the w-2’s, etc. We do not live in MS, just one of the contract companies is based out of MS, so it wasn’t much income, small refund owed of $265. I called today and was told they needed a copy of the w-2 for the MS company……… even though we went that to them. This was NOT an electronic filing. So I sent it via email anyway and was told it was attached to the account now. So it’s been sitting there for FIVE months? They needed a w-2 that was already sent to them? For a small refund? This is ridiculous.June 3, 2015 at 8:35 am #4112272EmGMO662
Has anyone received their refund for 2014 or are they still waiting? I called all the numbers – still under review – filed on the 6 of Feb!! Any ideas?May 16, 2015 at 8:16 am #4111880Albert Jahns
Does anyone else still not have their 2014 return as of MAY 16 2015? I’ve actually talked to people at the revenue dept that have told me that I was correct in my assertion that the state was jerking us around just to hold onto our dollars. You can’t make them do anything, so I suggest stop pre-paying your taxes, if you’re close enough to Louisiana (or any bordering state) buy your gas and alcohol and tobacco there. High schoolers and college students, learn early. You don’t want the state of Mississippi to have anything to do with your money- need proof, just read this board.February 25, 2015 at 2:13 am #4108853Barbara 2014
I filed my sons and it is still saying that it is being reviewed. This is the 1st year that it has not come in right behind the federal refund. What’s up?November 21, 2014 at 1:45 am #23770Anonymous
I filed my return and it was accepted on 2/2/14. I was entitled to a $5300 refund. When I called to check on the status a couple of weeks after it was accepted, the system kept saying it was being reviewed. 90 days later, I got a letter saying they needed more information. I sent them receipts, cancelled checks, travel logs, expense trackers, etc. They were overnighted. Now, 200 days after initial acceptance, I call to check on the status of my refund. It said that my return has finished processing and no refund is due. I then call to talk to a person. They informed me that not only do I not get my large refund but I now owe them almost $4000. The lady who was reviewing said that she did not accept any of my deductions even though they had receipts to back up each and every one. I am so angry at this point. Do any of you know of any lawyers or anything I can do about this? When I told the lady I was getting a lawyer, she told me “The State of Mississippi is sovereign.” This is ridiculous.August 13, 2014 at 3:15 pm #24226Anonymous
Filed my return in late February. Finally was able to speak with someone at 601-923-7089 about 3 weeks ago. The nice lady said it was in process and they needed to verify my husband’s income with his employer. She asked for a phone number which I provided…..still nothing. No one has called to verify anything. This is ridiculous.August 13, 2014 at 12:44 pm #24224phyllis wilson
My refund was e-filed on march 8th. Still processing. Come on it’s not that big of a refund but it is MINE and I want it. This absolutely ridiculous.August 4, 2014 at 6:16 pm #24109Mike
Mailed my return in mid-March. Almost five months later I have not received my refund. I have called the automated line at least 20 times and it always says the return “has not processed” and “no other information is available.” What does this mean? Anyone else having this issue?August 4, 2014 at 12:05 pm #24105C Clark
oh dear God! I just called the number, pressed “0” and it told me that all representatives are busy at this time….it doesn’t give you an option to hold, it tells you to call back later or go to the website and it disconnects you!!!
i am totally convinced it is some sort of scam, this is outrageous!August 4, 2014 at 12:03 pm #24104C Clark
At least I see that I am not alone.
I filed my return in February as well and my status continues to say “received, under review” i tried to call today to speak to a human and i was routed back to the automated line.
i am going to try the number posted above and press “0” to see if I get some movement. this is beyond ridiculous!July 9, 2014 at 12:25 am #23893Melissa
Defiled in February, and it was accepted, but never showed on the MS site. I called and they said it was under review for 90 days, so more than 4 months later, I called again and the woman finally says they’ve finished reviewing and I should get it in the next week or two. I’ll believe it when I see it. Now the website says its under review instead of not there at all. I filed almost 5 months ago. Absurd.June 20, 2014 at 1:40 pm #23678Cindy 2014
I filed my return through H&R Block in early March. The MS web site showed my claim has been ‘under review’ for over 90 days. I just called 601-923-7089 and hit 0. It took a very nice lady 30 minutes to research and tell me that my large refund still being reviewed.June 19, 2014 at 6:43 pm #23669Danny
I filed on Feb 2 Accepted,I called the number and was told that its under review,Then called back a few days ago and told they are waiting on info from my employer,asked if I could help they said no just waiting to hear back from employer,I think its all a scam on the part of Mississippi we need to vote theses people out of power thats the only control we have,This is an abuse of power to the extreme.June 19, 2014 at 1:57 pm #23664Irritated Coast Gal
I efiled in April for a DD; my refund is still “being processed”. I have tried the numbers posted here to check the status, get nothing but an automated bunch of horse manure. Like the majority of you on this thread, I am getting pretty frustrated. Any other suggestions?June 18, 2014 at 2:26 pm #23648Renee Cooper
WOOHOO! Ok people, I called 601-923-7089, computer gives you a list of options, choose 0. This first time I chose 0 it rang and rang. I called back and chose 0 and a nice lady answered. I told her I had efiled with Tax Act the first of Feb. 2014 and it still says processing. She asked for my social, I heard her keying for a few, then she came back on and said all looked find and that I should get my refund shortly. OMGOSH! I wish I had know about this “glitch” that Tax Act has had all along. But all is good now. Hopefully I will see my refund in my account soon. Have a great day and good luck.June 18, 2014 at 1:44 pm #23646Renee COoper
April, what number did you call to get someone to hit that button. I did mine thru Taxact, it was accepted on Feb. 6, 2014 and all it says is processing. Its been over 4 months now. I don’t get it!!!June 18, 2014 at 7:09 am #23639JLH
My refund was accepted back in January and is STILL being processed! That is our great state at work. Do everything electronically to cut down on paperwork and it takes 10x longer…. Gimme a break!June 16, 2014 at 3:13 pm #23600Sparky
Finally some change in status
Let’s see, I filed in the beginning of Feb.
Your refund was processed on 6/12/2014. Please allow at least 2 weeks to receive a paper refund check, or 7 to 10 days to receive your refund by direct deposit. If after that time you haven’t received your check or direct deposit, please wait an additional 30 days. After that time, write and request a tracer for the refund. Include your name, social security number, correct address, tax year of the return and your signature.
Mississippi Department of Revenue
P.O. Box 1033
Jackson, MS 39215-1033
Please allow 8 to 10 weeks for processing the tracer request.
So I have to wait 7-10 days for direct deposit which sounds ridiculous then if it doesn’t come I have to wait another 30 days before I can file a tracer request and then have to wait 8-10 weeks for that to happen.
They sure make it hard for you to receive YOUR money.June 11, 2014 at 10:01 am #23485Virginia F. McMullen
checking the status of my income tax…you all accepted the last of January.June 10, 2014 at 4:10 pm #23455T
Does anyone know if there is a way to report these people. By these people, I mean The Department of Revenue. I’ve been waiting two and a half months on my taxes and still don’t have them. Called this past Friday and the lady I spoke with sent an email to the proper department to tell them to begin processing my taxes. I checked the status today and it’s still saying that it’s being reviewed. No one should have to send the next department an e-mail to tell them to do their job. And how long does it take to review someone’s taxes?!! It definitely shouldn’t takes as long as their making it take. If the federal government can get your return back to you in two weeks or less, why does it take MS months and months to do it. The federal government has more returns to get out than MS. I’m convinced that these people aren’t doing anything at work or are unorganized. Idk but I’m pissed off and I want my money. I would like to know where/how to report or place a complaint on them.
