Status finally changed this morning for a 10/7 date.October 4, 2019 at 3:45 am #4331663
October. I filed 1/29. This is just flat out nuts.September 20, 2019 at 4:32 pm #4331594
I Will Wait
Good luck getting that 5% interest. They finally deposited my refund. 1.6% interest. Still a few hundred dollars on the over 14k they owed me, but nowhere near the 5% mark. Good luck to all those still waiting. What a year is has been. :(September 18, 2019 at 3:24 pm #4331560
I have been dealing with them for over a year to no avail. I saw a lien on my account and they stated they did not receive my 2012 refund. A lady at DOR stated she would re-file it for me I just would not receive a refund due to the age ($17 dollars anyways) but it would remove the lien of over $1k. She failed to do as she said, the DOR even admitted she was at fault and dropped the ball. So come tax time they offset my whole Federal return. I have emailed 20+ times.. Called 10 times.. same story.. system upgrades, wait 4-8 weeks and call back. I was told in June it would be a week. Here we are Sept and nothing. I filed a complaint with auditor. She had someone directly contact me who stated sorry we cannot process prior year returns at the moment due to system upgrades. This contradicts the fact I was told 3 times by 3 different people on the phone now it was already processed and at the check processing center. Totally unacceptable.September 17, 2019 at 1:34 am #4331549
I have had 2 different reps with the Missouri DOR tell me that interest is accrued daily at 5% a day after 45 days. If that is the case I’m at day 185 days past the 45 day mark and that’s $23 a day for me. I asked him to confirm that with a supervisor. He came back on the line and said that they told them they couldn’t give him that info and they can only say it’s 5% interest after 45 days and I would know the refund amount once I get my refund. That I should I be thankful to get one seeing as pays in. Called the auditors office for details on how interest works and was told they couldn’t discuss that. Only the DOR. Any one have insight on how that will work. Will be the 5% in addition to the refund, in my case $23, or is that $23 (5%) each day? Because if so I can see why the news is reportIng over a million dollars in interest will be paid for this year to tax payers by tax payers.September 16, 2019 at 9:39 pm #4331546

No signs of life at the DOR, so I called the auditor’s office. The guy said I had the biggest refund he had heard of so far this year and was going to work on my behalf. Fingers crossed, but I haven’t heard back from anyone yet. Also, I’m willing to bet that the state taxes us on the interest we earn on next year’s return. Assuming we get our money back before the next tax season arrives.September 13, 2019 at 10:20 pm #4331523
It’s been 32 weeks since we filed. Still nothing. No help from anyone. I just get the “be patient, it takes 6 to 12 weeks.” So what happens if we don’t get it by next text season? Because I’m losing hope.September 13, 2019 at 3:45 pm #4331521
JoJo, don’t hold your breathe. They told me that back in May about a small offset I have with an old fine. I’m still waiting as well.September 12, 2019 at 2:25 pm #4331512
I called and finally talked to someone helpful!! I was told it was being processed and I told her that I’ve been told that for the last 9 months, she put me on hold for about 10-15 mins came back on and said she had put in a request from the College to verify the amount of the offset and they could release the funds once that is in. So MAYBE this month!!!!September 8, 2019 at 9:10 pm #4331477
My dad is still waiting on his refund as well! We called over a week ago and they said we are starting to process the refunds again. ((Wth does she mean by starting to process again)) I guess they do what they want right?? Rude rude!!! Someone is dropping the ball there!September 4, 2019 at 11:51 pm #4331449
September and still waiting. This is beyond nuts!August 5, 2019 at 7:13 pm #4331204
I Will Wait
I finally called, they said 4 more weeks, so maybe sometime in September…August 2, 2019 at 1:42 am #4331068
My husband and I filed our taxes on 3/30 by paper. One month went by before I decided to check the status of the return, the system said that no tax returns has been received so, I called just to make sure they received it which they did received on the 4/25. I ask the person on the phone, why the system showed not received and she said not to pay attention to the system cause it wasn’t reliable and the we should get our refound between 10 to 12 weeks.
Is been more then 20 weeks and the system insists that they haven’t received our tax return. My guess is we’ll end up getting it until Christmas lol.July 30, 2019 at 11:32 pm #4331048
Officially been 6 months. Lol.July 23, 2019 at 4:02 pm #4330920
25 weeks and still no refund from misery…🙄🙄 this is stupid..July 20, 2019 at 3:15 am #4330850
I’m glad you got it Ck77. I contacted the auditor a month ago and still waiting. Tuesday will make 25 weeks for me.July 19, 2019 at 11:40 pm #4330844
24 weeks almost to the day and I finally have my refund plus a whopping $4 interest. Conveniently just 2 weeks after contacting the state auditors office and giving them permission to discuss on my behalf.July 16, 2019 at 12:57 pm #4330757
I’m at week 24 and still nothing. Being told it can be another 3-4 weeks wait. 😭July 11, 2019 at 10:59 am #4330633
Well, its going on 24 weeks this is getting ridiculous! Now their system is unavailable maybe just maybe thats a good sign…..July 6, 2019 at 10:57 pm #4330537
Now I’ve been told the refunds that don’t have any additions are being done first. Going on 11 weeks since I faxed that 1099.July 1, 2019 at 11:40 am #4330391
I called and was told it could possible be up to 20 weeks from 06/01 to process a non-obligated spouse form for $100 of an almost $500 refund. I said no, ma’am. I need a supervisor because tomorrow makes 22 weeks for me and I’ll be damned if I wait another week longer. Damn sure not 20. She put me on hold while she “contacted a supervisor” to set up a call. Came back 10 minutes later and said her supervisor emailed the appropriate parties so it can be manually processed. Same thing another rep told me about 6 weeks ago. I’m just about over it.July 1, 2019 at 9:29 am #4330377
Still nothing. :(June 28, 2019 at 11:54 pm #4330277
The automated system has never shown that my property tax forms were even received. Faxed February 15. Told they couldn’t find it, call back. told me April 25 they needed more info. Faxed on April 25. Started calling. Too they couldn’t find it, call back. Now it’s being processed but they have no clue when I’ll get the check. What a mess this year. I have to say customer service tried to be helpful.!June 28, 2019 at 8:41 am #4330254
Still waiting. 5 months of this. Filed 1/29.June 26, 2019 at 10:35 am #4330112
angry as hell
My refund showed up in my account today. The site still says it is validating.
From January 28th to today I received $1.96 in interest. What a ripoff.
Btw-they say this won’t happen next year but experts are thinking this will be the norm in the future. Some think in the next few year sc that the first round of refunds won’t go out until 45 days after the filing deadline, April 15.
If this makes you angry call your state Rep and senator, look into their votes and consider possibly voting them out. This wasn’t just a computer error. This was purposely done by the state legislature by reducing the funding and limiting how much could be paid out on a daily basis.June 24, 2019 at 10:41 pm #4330073
I Will Wait
5% interest, nice! State will owe me over $700 in interest alone. Assuming they ever pay up.June 24, 2019 at 12:12 pm #4330044
Filed in March finally got the release date of 6/24 on 6/22. It is now 6/24 and still not in my account. Now I’m being told it could still be 5+ days before it hits the bank. I have usaa it never takes this long. There better be interest on this return. My husband is military and I’m a sahm so we are entirely exempt from Missouri taxes due to being stationed outside of Missouri. There is absolutely no reason this is taking so long. I had him change his tax status on his pay for this year to exempt so they won’t see a dime from us all year. We won’t get anything back but we won’t be waiting an ungodly amount of time next year.June 22, 2019 at 8:20 am #4329984
This is ridiculous! If we don’t have our money by July 1st, interest will go up to 5%.June 19, 2019 at 6:45 pm #4329893
i filed my taxes back in January and still have not received a refund what do i need to do here its been months.June 18, 2019 at 5:21 pm #4329846
Finally heard back from the Auditor’s office they asked for permission to speak to the DOR on my behalf and also filed a complaint. Hope this gets me somewhere…..June 17, 2019 at 9:28 pm #4329814

Week 20. Nothing.June 17, 2019 at 9:37 am #4329780
Today marks 20 weeks and still no sign of intelligent life…. Called DOR, Auditor, and Governor and still nothing. Keep getting the same response: there is nothing more needed for your refund and we see no problems with it just give it 4 more weeks…June 15, 2019 at 10:16 am #4329719
Finally got my refund on the 12th. 18 weeks and 2 days it took. Yesterday got a call from the auditors office. This is after the refund and after 2-3 calls a week to the auditors office. Good luck everyone.June 14, 2019 at 6:17 am #4329647

Called for the 12th time today. Was told they needed a copy of my 1099’s and that I would be placed at the back of the queue and require at least another 12 weeks. Talked to supervisors, state auditors office, governors office, and my district representatives. No help from anyone. They did however change their call system to where you can easily talk to a person, not that it helps at all.
Filed Feb 2nd
Estimated refund time- OctoberJune 8, 2019 at 2:34 pm #4329337
Monday will be 18 weeks. Absolute BS. The reps know nothing. And most of them are a-holes who have no business being in customer service.June 7, 2019 at 12:32 pm #4329259

Auditor’s office stares they will be opening an audit ticket for this immediately.June 7, 2019 at 11:51 am #4329257

Just called. Stoll said it’s processing,shows it is in the final stages but it might not dispense until the fall.June 7, 2019 at 7:50 am #4329236
I finally received my refund. 16.5 weeks later, multiple calls, emails to the DOR and I received a whopping 4.06 more in interest. Ha. This was a comical tax season. Good luck to everyone else still waiting.June 6, 2019 at 12:12 pm #4329196
I originally filed my return Jan 28, 2019 and it was accepted the same day. I called this number three times a week with no success. The yesterday I called 5737512578 and explained my situation and asked to speak with a supervisor. I never spoke with a supervisor but the agent I spoke with had a supervisor correct an error on my account. She even called me back after it was corrected and told me I should have a refund date tomorrow. I woke up and checked my due date is tomorrow. I just wanted to share my experience and hope it helps.June 6, 2019 at 10:53 am #4329190

The PATH thing is just another excuse. There are plenty who were under it that received their refunds months ago.June 6, 2019 at 7:25 am #4329172
PS the MoR stated yesterday that anyone under PATH, a hold due to offset or is filing from earlier than 2018 or missing a tax year filed your refunds are all being held until everyone else is processed.June 6, 2019 at 7:23 am #4329171
Whew. After 4 months of waiting, multiple emails and calls, my return has finally been processed with a DDD date of 6/7/19. Stay persistent to those of you still waiting.June 5, 2019 at 11:00 am #4329119
I called the MO state auditor’s office two days ago and also sent two emails to the Department of Revenue. The email responses were both automated and directed me to the Missouri Return Inquiry System, which I have been using for the past 15 weeks. I don’t know if either action prompted this, but I received noticed today that my tax refund was processed and completed. I am waiting for the refund to hit my bank account so I can verify the amount.June 4, 2019 at 10:13 am #4329058

I can’t even get through to DOR. The calls keep disconnecting and now it says all circuits ate busy.June 4, 2019 at 10:02 am #4329057
18 weeks here and nothing… nobody with any answers… ridiculous!June 4, 2019 at 8:19 am #4329052
Week 16 here. Has anyone heard any official news on when refunds will be issued? I’ve attempted to email and get the same 10 week response however we are all well past 10 weeks. When I got an agent they just say that they are behind and i am in the final stages of processing (been in this stage for over a month). And well, the tracker has never changed. Any ideas?June 4, 2019 at 6:13 am #4329050

Has anyone checked into class action law suit? Or just a law suit? This is beyond crazy and the excuse is never the same always a different one or always extending the time. It’s been 16 weeks already.May 30, 2019 at 8:23 am #4328789
I just thought I would share this I filed in April and received a portion of the return at around 3 weeks into it. I have been checking daily for my son who is in the same boat as most here. Out of curiosity I decided to check mine through the automated system — i still says my return is processing and will take up to 12 weeks. The system is a mess.May 30, 2019 at 1:47 am #4328772
angry as hell
I’m at 18 weeks. I’ve requested a supervisor contact me every week since week 12. No response. I’ve been informed that I’ll get it when I get it,it isn’t my money so don’t worry about it, that 14,000 others are waiting and I have no business thinking I’m special. I’ve been hung up on, told I have no right to that information and that they don’t have to tell me anything. When I mentioned the auditor report I was told it was “fake news” and that they didn’t need to listen to conspiracy theories.
I’m a state employee. If I spoke to someone like that I’d be fired.May 29, 2019 at 8:35 pm #4328764

I filed on feb. 12. I have emailed twice and heard no reply. I tried to call but it just says its still validating. Ot has now been 15 weeks since i filed and still no word.May 29, 2019 at 12:51 pm #4328737
@Linda I have called the useless Governors office at least 5 times. Get told that someone will call me back. Has not happened yet. The auditors office now has a recording to leave a message. The DOR just told me it will be another 4-6 weeks. That is the middle of July. It is completely unacceptable for the state to be doing this.May 29, 2019 at 9:29 am #4328707
Maybe there is some hope. MAYBE…..🙄? 17 weeks and still no progress, HUMMM!.
(word for word from the MO. D.O.R. refund status page.)⤵️
➡️The information reported on your return, such as income, deductions, and payments, is being verified for accuracy. This validation process generally requires 12 weeks from the date your return was received. The Department refreshes the data on this application daily, usually overnight. However, during heavy processing periods, the status of your return may not change from day to day.May 28, 2019 at 4:21 pm #4328680

Called again. Josh, the person on the other end, informed me that the auditor report wasn’t “real” and called me a conspiracy theorist.
He said there are 14,000 others waiting and that I’m not special.May 28, 2019 at 2:26 pm #4328671
Linda, I took your suggestion after DOR told me to wait one more week. I’m at week 17. Just called Gov Parsons office & they said they are gonna place an inquiry for me.May 28, 2019 at 9:13 am #4328641
I suggest everyone call the governor’s office. That’s what I did. A woman answered, took my info, said she would give it to MO Dept of Rev and someone would call me. I was skeptical, but they did call me…said they would expedite my return…and I had my refund that week.
They did short me, originally, and I was actually able to get the rep that I talked to the first time back on the phone. She said when it was pulled to be expedited, someone pushed an incorrect button, which changed my numbers. She made the correction and I had the additional funds the same week, too.
Yes, they are paying interest…I think it’s like 1% or something like that.
I can’t say it will work for everyone, but calling the governor did the trick for me. As they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
I hope we’re not all back on here chatting again next year.May 28, 2019 at 1:27 am #4328634
Now at 17 weeks. I bet everything I got the tornado that hit Jefferson City will be a new excuse to delays these further.May 27, 2019 at 7:34 pm #4328625
I filed Feb 13 and still no refund and mine is a measly 384…May 25, 2019 at 10:50 am #4328514
I Will Wait
Anyone know how the interest is figured? MO owes me over $14k, so I may be getting a better deal than most money market accounts in terms on interest. That is assuming they do eventually pay out. I would guess they are doing a manual review do the amount, but you would think they would want to get it out of the way to save themselves from paying so much.May 23, 2019 at 2:39 pm #4328352
Filed Feb 2 still have not received my return. Call this number to make a complaint to MO State Auditor at 1-800-347-8597.
When I called MO refund customer service number, they said “I’ll get my return when I get it”.
This is completely unacceptable. We can look at high fines and jail time for not paying our taxes but the MO government can just do whatever the hell they feel like doing and they don’t pay for it we end up paying for the interest build up.
It’s costing us tax payers more money because MO wants to take their sweet time giving peoples hard earned money back.
MO get your sh** together.May 23, 2019 at 2:30 pm #4328351
Filed and was excepted January 30, week 16 started yesterday and it’s still in the validating stage on the website. I have not called and probably won’t now after reading all the comments below and it doing no good. :(May 22, 2019 at 6:51 pm #4328286
Week number 14 for me. I called to check the status and received a nice representative who said they are swamped and doing their best to push out people who filed in Jan and February. He said that I am in the last step of processing but other than that, no updates. The tracker hasn’t updated since I filed. The representative said that the tracker is down too. Come on Missouri. This is really pathetic.May 22, 2019 at 12:41 pm #4328261
not to mention that we can no longer track it as the site is having issues. Get iti together people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!May 22, 2019 at 12:39 pm #4328260
filed in January 21 stated received February 4. They can not explain why it is taking so long. I think you all should have to pay a high interest rate for holding my money. You would sure be the first to charge me one if I was late paying you;.This has gone past the point of ridiculous. Maybe we should hold your pay until we receive our money.May 22, 2019 at 11:06 am #4328249

Just called DOR. She stated (and I quote) “You’ll get it when we’re ready. You’re not the most important person here today.”
I asked for a supervisor and she said it could be a few weeks to speak with one. Called the governor’s office and they filed an inquiry.May 22, 2019 at 2:41 am #4328225

Still nothing. Filed in January.May 21, 2019 at 12:41 pm #4328185
Money deposited on 5/16…but $415.49 less than my refund. They deposited X,XXX.51. Cents??? All numbers are rounded…how can they deposit “cents”???? I am livid. I called number that originally called me to say my refund would be expedited (because I had called the governor with my info) and of course, when I call back, it goes to voicemail. I said I wanted a call back today.
If not, I’ll call the governor again tomorrow and they will have MO Dept of Revenue call me back, like last week.
I was hoping for some interest to be paid, not a deduction. Beyond frustrated.
