This is getting ridiculous mine was accepted on 2/5 still haven’t received.. Said it processed on 5/23 and now I checked again today and it now says it processed on 5/29. How can it reprocess ?!?! Mississippi is just jerking us around playing with our money. I’m so glad I moved so I never have to deal with this ridiculous state tax again . Next week it will probably say it processed for a third time on a third different date.May 28, 2014 at 2:03 pm #23069Karen
Here’s what happens if you are 1 day late…. they charge you 100.00 minimum. My son was 1 day late b/c he was sure he’d get a refund – always has – so if you are late and get a refund they don’t care but if you are late and you OWE??? well, we found out he owed 5 bucks… yep 5 bucks… his penalty was 50 cents PLUS 100.00 b/c you are not allowed to send them less than 100 bucks. So – for owing 5 bucks bc THEIR calculations were wrong on his w/holding. He’s a single 20 yr old kid – if there’s not enough w/holding that is THEIR BAD. So he had to write them a 105.50 check. They make me so mad. But, we can wait 90 to 180 days for our money. sure… go ahead and earn that interest.May 21, 2014 at 10:12 pm #22862Sparky
I am still waiting on my refund as well as 2 friends which 1 of them filed back in Jan!May 20, 2014 at 4:19 pm #22813Mz jd
Well still waiting accepted end of January sent in all required documents and still have to wait up to another 90 days!!!!! The rep said yes ma’am they just said will complete within 90 days of date paperwork received.May 16, 2014 at 12:59 pm #22689JustWaiting
I am beyond pissed. the first time I called I was told my return went into review feb 4 and to call back in 2 weeks if I didn’t have my refund. 2 weeks passed so I called back. the rep told me I should have been got my refund because they posted it feb 4 but they didn’t send it out. told me if I didnt get it within 1 week to call back. called back last Thursday may 8, and was told it was in review and to call back if I had not seen it in one week. this is the shocker, I called back today and was told it was pulled for random review and guess what? MY REVIEW HAS NOT EVEN STARTED YET. Basically ny refund has been sitting up untouched since Feb 4. I couldn’t do anything but cry. this hurts to be lied to and jerked around.May 16, 2014 at 8:52 am #22687This is dumb
The state has the money to pay you back. They hold all this money in high interest accounts for as long as they can to make more money at your expense.May 13, 2014 at 5:27 pm #22639Ronnie
Update 05/13/2014. Final update.
I called the DOR one week ago and spoke to someone on the phone. I explained that it was getting close to 90 days and I still hadn’t received my refund. The lady on the phone had me on hold (but I could still hear her typing) for about 10 minutes, and then came back on and said that she’d done something and that my refund had completed review and would be available in 10-14 business days. (Funny how their “hands are tied” and they “can’t do anything” until they have to meet the 90 day requirement, anyways.)
So I checked again on the DOR website on 05/12 and saw that it still said that my refund was being reviewed. I was beyond pissed off at this point, as it had already been 5 days since I was told that it was completed. I called into the DOR and the lady on the phone told me that my refund **HAD NOT** completed review, and to call back in 2 weeks. So I’m furious by this point because they have apparently lied to me, and it’s officially been 90 days since I submitted the return. I sent an email with a few choice words, demanding that they let me speak to a supervisor because I was not going to tolerate being lied to and given the run around. The next day (today, 05/13) I checked the website and it says that my return has been processed on 05/12 and will be deposited into 7-10 days.
Summary: I submitted on 02/12, and it completed review on 05/12. Exactly 90 days later. Which is what I’ve been saying all along, they just want to hang on to our money for as long as they can until they’re forced to give it to you. Get prepared to wait the full 90 days to receive your return, especially if it’s a larger return.
Hopefully all of this information has helped someone. Take care!May 13, 2014 at 5:39 am #22629William Childress
Where is my state refund it said 90 days it has been 97 days please respond need our money.received February 5.2014 is in review if there was a mistake I can helpMay 1, 2014 at 7:16 pm #22483George
They told you 90 BUSINESS days? Oh hell no. It states to “allow 90 days” on their website, not “allow 90 business days”. If they try to give me that bullshit, I’m gonna raise some hell. I’d like to see how long it took one of our asses to get into trouble if on April 15 (tax day), we told the state of MS to give us 90 business days to pay them. This lopsided possession of power is ridiculous, there’s literally no consequences on them, they have all the power concerning our refunds and they know it.May 1, 2014 at 7:09 pm #22482George
Nikki, they accepted on 2/5 and they sent your refund through on 04/29. On 05/05/2014 (less than a week from now) they would’ve hit the 90 day time limit that they have to complete your review. I’m convinced Mississippi just wants to hang onto the money for as long as they possibly can, the state is dirt poor. They just give you the run around over at the DOR until the 90 days approaches, then they’re forced to pay you. I filed on 02/12, meaning 05/12 will be at the 90 day mark. I bet you my return goes through by next week, proving my theory on why it’s taking so long. Figures someone has to force them to give you your money, they never would otherwise.April 29, 2014 at 6:36 pm #22459Nikki
Mine was accepted on 2/5 like so many others I’ve just skimmed through!! Was this just the random day they chose to review everybody?April 24, 2014 at 2:55 pm #22379T
I’ve been waiting over a month for my return. When I sent a message on the online contact form, the response was:
You did not include your SS number in the message. The refund line number is 601-923-7801.
First of all, why the heck would I write my SS number in an e-mail?!!!!!!!!!! Secondly, the automated system isn’t telling me any more information than the website tracker is tell me!!!!!!!!!!! I went back to college full-time in January so I’m not working. I need my refund and their playing with my money!!April 23, 2014 at 8:37 pm #22369Ronnie
Update 04/23/2014: I emailed the MS Department of Revenue at the link on their website, explaining that it’d been over 2 months since I filed my return and that it was still under review, asked them how much longer the review process would take. I got a response about 3 days later saying that my return was taking a long time to process, and to call (601)923-7089 to speak with someone.
Called and spoke with Sharon at the MS DOR and she told me that she wasn’t sure why the process was taking so long, but told me that she sent an email to someone within the DOR to review my return. She told me that this would get my return reviewed ASAP and that I should be hearing something or having my refund processed very soon.
Just thought I’d put this on here in case it helps anyone. Just as a side note, I’m pretty sure she only did this for me because it had been over 8 weeks since I filed. When I called the previous week, I was just told to call back next week. Almost as if the lady knew that they wouldn’t do anything until it had been 8 weeks or longer. I’ll let you all know when I receive my refund.April 23, 2014 at 6:42 pm #22368Dean
After months of waiting finally getting refund thanks to the info you have reported here. Phone call works.April 16, 2014 at 10:26 am #22247Amber
Accepted on 2/5. Have been processing/in review ever since. Called 601-923-7089 and talked to a representative. Was told my return was stuck in the review process but he wasn’t sure why. I asked if he could find out what was going on and was given the response his hands were tied until the 90th day. Was also told the 90 days were business days and they have until 6/11 to be within that 90 day time frame. Maybe I’ll have it by the 4th of July. I’m not hopeful at this point.April 15, 2014 at 2:17 pm #22234Earl
I just called the automated line, too. It stated that mine was processed on 4/15. Not sure why it took 2 months to process.April 15, 2014 at 1:14 pm #22232Mary
Just an update, I filed with turbo tax, 1/29 federal accepted on 1/31. Mississippi accepted 2/5. Federal direct deposited with 2 weeks. Mississippi web site said not received…..for months. I kept calling the automated number, and no record. I finally called the direct number and of course it was being reviewed.. on 4/11 i called 601-923 7089. pressed 0. She said it was being processed it shouldn’t be too much longer. Today I checked the website and all of a sudden its been processed. should have my dd 7 -10 days. Hope this helps someone.April 13, 2014 at 8:27 pm #22211Ronnie
This is some BS. I filed through H&R Block on 02/12 and STILL haven’t received my MS tax refund. My federal refund was direct deposited within about 2 weeks, but nothing from MS! Getting the same crap as the rest of the people on here about my return being “reviewed”. How long does it take to review the damn thing? I paid X amount of dollars in state tax, you owe me X amount of money. It’s not a multiple day procedure, I can’t even imagine it taking more than 5-10 minutes to “review”. So obviously by “review” they mean it’s sitting in a box with a bunch of other tax returns until they get to it.
They have absolutely no problem collecting the tax money from you, and they demand that you pay it to them immediately. But when it comes time for them to return some of your money, they take as long as they want. There really needs to be some sort of regulations placed on states to force them to complete processing within X number of days. I agree with Tracy that the reason for this is because the state of Mississippi is poor as hell and wants to hang onto your money for as long as possible.April 10, 2014 at 2:08 pm #22149Missy2014
I had filed with taxact and it said that my taxes were accepted 2/5/14, so I have been checking periodically on the status and had received the same message every time. On 4/4/14 when trying to sign on to TAP I must have typed in the wrong information so it locked me out and it gave me a number to call to talk to someone to unlock me. While on the phone with the lady I asked her if she could tell me why has it taken so long and she gave me the same old spill about you have been selected for review, blah blah blah it may take up to 90 days to process. Well later on that day I called the automated number and it says your refund was processed on 4/4 please allow 4-8 weeks for a check and 7-10 days for direct deposit. Today, 4/10 I received a text message that says your state refund has been sent to your account and should be available within 1-5 days. So I’m not sure if it was because I called or it was a coincidence that it happened to be processed the same day I called.April 9, 2014 at 4:45 pm #22138David
I e-filed my taxes via TaxAct and it shows them being received on 02/05/14. Ever since that date I’ve been receiving the same message that my taxes are being processed/reviewed. I have sent an email via the Mississippi website contact form and received a “canned” response about the 90 days. Could my return be one of the TaxAct glitches? If so what number do I need to call and what information will I need? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.April 9, 2014 at 7:52 am #22128April
Ok guys I have answers! I finally got someone on the phone at the State DOR to help me. Apparently, if you efiled with TaxAct this year, there is a glitch in the system and while it sent your return to the state, the states computers are just holding it instead of processing it. It didn’t do it to everyone she said and they’re only able to catch those who call. All she had to do was hit a button and now mine is processing right after sitting there since 2/5. I called the automated number this morning and there is finally a change in my refund status. Hope this helps you!April 3, 2014 at 3:58 pm #22037Earl
Mine was accepted on 2/15. The website shows that the MS AGI and SSN do not match. I emailed MS and got a poorly worded response: “your refund have not complete process”. Still nothing from the website.April 2, 2014 at 9:17 am #21977Dave
I was accepted on 2/5 and have had the “wait 90 days’ message for a couple months now. Today I’ve got better news:
Your refund was processed on 4/1/2014. 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.April 1, 2014 at 12:35 pm #21927amy robertson
It doesn’t make since the way they do our money as if to say we will send it when we are ready. and the funny thing is you can’t talk to a live rep.March 26, 2014 at 4:25 pm #21696Celia Rayburn
I have the same response as Aaron, and I thought that was bull, because Tax Act online says it was processed and accepted. I emailed someone just to make sure it was not in limbo, and the only response I got was , “Your return is being reviewed, and it is taken longer to complete processing.” WahhMarch 19, 2014 at 1:44 pm #21481LaKeisha
Mine was accepted 2/5 also. I’ve done everything I could to find out here my money is. Emailed them and someone replied and said it was in review. It confused me for me to be given that response when I hadn’t provided the information needed to look up my personal taxes. MS is full of it and I never want to work in this state again. Then when I try to create an account to see exactly what process they are in the site tells me my info is wrong…b…s..March 17, 2014 at 5:20 pm #21418Tracy
The reason they haven’t paid them is because the state is broke and does not have the money to pay out the refunds. We are all in the same boat. It is BS!! They have 90 days to process it but they want their money yesterday if you owe it…March 16, 2014 at 7:40 pm #21381Monica
I was accepted on the 5th. Still saying not processed. Was told I WS in review. I filed bankruptcy last year. Think that may be reason. But they never told me my taxes would be held.March 10, 2014 at 10:22 am #21250Aaron
I am having the same issues as Dave “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.” How ridiculous. They really need to get it together.March 5, 2014 at 9:11 am #21156Emma
I e-filed on 2/1, was accepted same day but still waiting. I haven’t called yet but their website won’t allow me to access anything.. Just says my session has expired as soon as I click on anything?March 1, 2014 at 10:14 am #21071Lori
I used TaxACT, and they show state was accepted on 2/7. On MS website, it says:
“Your return has not processed. If your return was mailed, please allow 4 to 8 weeks for your return to process. If your return was electronically filed and its been more than 7 days, we did not receive your return. Please allow an additional 15 days before calling. No other information is available from any Department of Revenue employee.”
How can they say they did not receive the return, and how long is this going to take? I have never had a problem with e-filing MS state taxes.February 28, 2014 at 11:49 am #21052Dave
I was accepted on 2/5 but have been showing the following for a couple weeks with no change:
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.
I guess I’ve got a long wait ahead of me!February 26, 2014 at 2:54 pm #21005April
Same here. Accepted 2/5 and still waiting. Glad to know I’m not the only oneFebruary 26, 2014 at 1:44 pm #21004Missy2014
My MS was also accepted on 2/5 and its still showing pending,. When i call the info line is says that if you have electronically filed we have not received your return. I received a text message that said it had been accepted on Feb 5th and also when I go to my taxact account it says it was accepted the same day.February 26, 2014 at 8:50 am #21000Fleming2014
I was accepted by MS on 2/5 and am still showing pending.February 7, 2014 at 10:58 am #19605phillipbianco@phillipbianco
any new update on state DDD?? anyoneFebruary 2, 2014 at 7:18 am #18899Anonymous
I did my return for state 1/31 and still showing pending. I was accepted 1/29 for federal and have ddd for 2/6. I don’t know what’s going on with Ms.February 2, 2014 at 5:08 am #18898Anonymous
Has anyone from the Mississippi area been accepted for their efile of State Tax Refnd? Mine is still showing pending for a while now.February 2, 2014 at 5:08 am #4115089Anonymous
Well, hopefully this year moves faster than last year. When did you file/get accepted?
