@ Momof3blondies – see a few posts below. E-filed 1/28, stays read “received but not processed” until 3:1, at which point it changed to “the depart is proposing changes to your return”. Never did my status state they needed additional time.
With the lack of information out there this year, I am wondering if it’s possibly a budget issue – perhaps they do not have the funds to pay out all the refunds and are waiting to receive payments from those that owe. Who knows! What I do know, is this is becoming more and more frustrating as the days pass!March 9, 2017 at 6:09 pm #4190211
@Khaz…. did your status say “have received but need additional time for processing?” When did you file if you don’t mind me askingMarch 9, 2017 at 5:49 pm #4190053Nalani
I haven’t heard anything – you seem further than I am in this process.
02/15 – Filed
2/16 – Accepted and status “received, but not processed”
2/24 – Rcvd ltr to verify identity
2/25 – Completed/Passed Quiz online and quiz states “your refund will now resume processing”
**AS OF TODAY** My status online STILL SAYS
“received, but not processed”
I have tried to google, read blogs, or get updates however I can. I haven’t had much luck finding any information on why it’s taking so long. Some of my FB friends are going through the same thing but nobody seems to know why.
As mentioned previously – my cousin and his gf both filed same day (2/5) and he got his check in the mail 2/13 and she STILL hasn’t received anything, not even a letter asking her to verify her identity.
I watch this blog every few days to see if anyone has new info.March 9, 2017 at 5:09 pm #4190117Khaz
@ Momof3blondies – I have called the automated phone line as well a couple of times, 573-526-8299. I’m fairly certain the end of the message stated processing time would be approximately 6-8 weeks. I tried calling again to be certain, however, since my status has changed from processing, it no longer provides me with the timeline information.March 9, 2017 at 10:09 am #4190029
Has anyone heard, read or been told how long it’s taking the State of MO to process refunds? I filed 2/21 and started checking their website last Thursday. I have been checking every other day and mine stills says that my return is being processed but they need additional time. Technically if I go by H&R they said should be received by the 13th but I already received Federal.March 8, 2017 at 11:45 am #4189881Khaz
So, I e-filed on 1/28/17. Per MO DOR, status showed it was received, but not yet processed until last Wednesday (finally!), 3/1. Now it is reflecting the following status: Results
The department is proposing changes to your return. You will receive a Notice of Proposed Changes dated, 03/08/2017, explaining the adjustments. Please wait until you receive this notice before contacting the department.
Has anyone else received this status? I reviewed and re-reviewed my return several times prior to filing and I cannot for the life of me come up with anything I input incorrectly. I wasn’t aware that they went through and recalculated individual returns prior to issuing refunds?? Perhaps this is new and what is taking them so long this year?
Just curious if anyone else has experienced this, and what the outcome was. I am hoping it is simply the ID verification quiz, but doesn’t quite sound like that is the case.March 7, 2017 at 5:59 pm #4189731Stefanie Marshall
My state tax was received on February 12, 2017. Still saying that the income tax report has been received but not yet processed. The backlog must be ridiculous!
So I am expecting my refund in April….March 7, 2017 at 4:08 pm #4189697
Has anyone talked to the Dept of Revenue and if so, what did they say? In years past Federal and State went hand in hand basically but not this year. Just wondering what kind of excuses people are being told.March 6, 2017 at 9:31 am #4189241Nalani
Yes.. this is ridiculous. I still have nothing except “received, but not processed” even after filling out the quiz last week (or the week before). My cousins gf still has nothing either, she hasn’t even received a letter. They must be WAY behind.March 5, 2017 at 11:25 am #4189131Lgetch
I filled and accepted 2/10. Got federal like a week later. Mo still says received but not processed. I did enter dl I did not have eic or the other one….still waiting and missouri is so bad about providing any information as to processing time. So nice..but when you owe them…you better pay on time or early or be penalized ou t the wazoo…March 4, 2017 at 9:06 pm #4189071
Has anyone received there MO refund without their website updating and giving you a direct deposit date?March 3, 2017 at 2:05 pm #4188716Jerrie Mason
My missouri return was accepted on 1/26/2017 and my message on Where is My Refund for Missouri has stated for over a week now that it is being processed but they need additional time. Prior to that it read received, but not processed. It remained in that status for 30 days before switching to the other message above. I hope it really is’t going to take 30 days to advance to processed/paid! And we did enter our driver’s license numbers through taxact on our returns. Nor did we file for earned income credit or the child credit because we make too much. So I don’t understand the hold up either.March 2, 2017 at 2:52 pm #4188196
Did everyone who is waiting on refund enter their drivers license number? How about the ones that got a letter in the mail to verify, did you enter your drivers license when you submitted your return?February 28, 2017 at 7:44 pm #4187887Armywife
We filled and was received 1-24-17 It still says it is recieved but not yet processed.February 28, 2017 at 2:35 pm #4187816STEVE
I hope yours does too! I got my verification letter on the first, or I finished it on the 6th can’t remember. Just saw the date it was mailed out. But I’m still waiting. Just today I went to check and all of a sudden it says “our system doesn’t indicate a refund has been received.” I’m on the phone now. 30th in line and wait time is 169 minutes. Lucky I’m off today. I’ll update afterward. This is ridiculous. I paid estimated taxes for my LLC so this is even worse for me.February 27, 2017 at 10:02 pm #4187628Justin Rackers
Filed 29 January, received federal 14 Febuary, still waiting on state, checked MO DOR website and still says return was accepted, pending processing.February 27, 2017 at 8:34 am #4187289Nalani
@steve (UPDATE) I got home on Friday and checked my mailbox… and sure as the sky is blue… I had a letter in the mail from Missouri Revenue Dept stating I had to confirm my identity. I had to take a random quiz online and it was less than 1 minute and then it said
“You Passed. Your refund will resume processing… there’s nothing further requred from you”
So I hope that is true and they finish it TODAY!
LOLFebruary 24, 2017 at 5:41 pm #4186278cwebee
Filed and accepted my state and federal on 1/23/2017. I received federal within a week, but still waiting for state refund. I contacted Internal Revenue Service and received a response saying it takes 4-6 weeks to process state refunds. On week 5 so we will see. I have always received my state refund before federal and usually within a week of filing, so I’m not sure why it’s so late this year. The IRS website says its been received, which was confirmed, and processing.February 24, 2017 at 8:20 am #4186002Nalani
I know my cousin didn’t have to verify his identity. I don’t believe they have requested it from his gf either (I’m sure she would’ve mentioned that when I asked).
I haven’t received any letters from the state wanting to verify my or my husbands identity BUT I will say that he did correct the spelling of his name this year, on his BC, and that has been causing slight issues with other stuff but since his W2’s and all of that are in his correct name – I don’t see why that would hold it up.February 24, 2017 at 3:17 am #4185919STEVE
Did any of them.have to verify their identity? I did. Wondering if that pushes the timetable back farther now. Seems like average is 7 weeks waiting.February 23, 2017 at 3:20 pm #4185683Nalani
Filed 02/15, accepted 02/16 and still says received but not processed.
My cousin and his gf both filed 02/05..
My cousin got a check in the mail 02/13 (even though he requested DD) but his girlfriend is STILL pending like me..
“Received but not processed”
What’s the hold up? Are they randomly processing some or is there a wave?February 23, 2017 at 1:35 pm #4185617Shawn
Filed 2/4. Missouri still shows received but not processed.
Federal refund was deposited in about 4 business days.February 22, 2017 at 2:03 pm #4184002Marisa
direct deposit received 2/22
Federal still pendingFebruary 21, 2017 at 6:50 am #4180961Stephb
I efiled Missouri on February 11. Still haven’t gotten anything saying it’s been received, and when I check it says nothing has been received. I normally get state within 9 days of filing but this doesn’t seem to be the case. What’s the deal why is it saying nothing been received??February 15, 2017 at 10:40 am #4171225KHaz
Mine is still showing it is processing. I did not claim the EIC or the child credit, so I cannot figure out what the hold up is. So frustrating!February 14, 2017 at 5:03 pm #4170289Geekross
I f/a on 2/4 and the system still says it’s processing. I do have EIC on my federal though. My daughter, however, filed on 2/5 and received her check in the mail yesterday.February 14, 2017 at 4:02 pm #4170231Ashley B.@ashbob11
Received State Refund 2/14/17
Just wandering down the LONG PATH now for Federal…. Hopefully hear something soon.February 10, 2017 at 12:54 pm #4166614KHaz
April, by state transfer fee, do you mean direct deposit? There is no fee from MO to direct deposit your refund. I saw in a few posts below someone else also was having issues receiving their refund on their Emerald Card. This could possible be an HR Block issue since it is their product. Are you certain the routing/account number were input correctly?February 10, 2017 at 11:38 am #4166489April
I have filed my Federal and State taxes. Missouri states the Refund Issued Date is 1/27/2017. This refund was to be deposited to my Emerald Card. But it is still not there. I double checked my documents but there is no state transfer fee, so I am wondering if the state is not sending a check. But then again, so makes me wonder where is my check then?February 9, 2017 at 12:09 pm #4163897KHaz
Wondering if anyone has actually received their 2016 refund as of yet from MO? Trying to get an idea of processing time. I filed and return was accepted 1/28/17. MODOR website still showing my return has been received but not yet processed. It is difficult to find any information regarding estimated time lines from the MODOR. I saw somewhere it’s possibly 6-10 weeks this year, but unable to confirm. Any direction to factual info would be greatly appreciated!February 9, 2017 at 6:24 am #4150553Smithg985
Thanksamundo for the post.Really thank you! Awesome. fggkeadceekfadakFebruary 2, 2017 at 2:00 pm #4157178Ladyboo

I filed 1/25/17 and accepted 1/25/17 around mignight for both federal and state. I have been receiving the following message since about 10:00 pm last night:
“The department is processing your return, please allow additional time. The department refreshes the data on this application daily. However, during heavy processing periods, the status of your return may not change from day to day. ”July 6, 2016 at 3:03 pm #4150443Darcy Essmyer
Filed 4/14, still hasnt been processed as of 7/6. Ridiculous. And of course there is no number to actually speak to someone.July 5, 2016 at 9:03 pm #4150438Jane

Filed in EARLY MARCH. No status change until end of May, when I received a letter that they never received my W2s, which is nonsense. Regardless, my accountant re-sent the W2s on June 1. It is still showing Proposed Changes and there is no way to get a real person on the phone. I agree with the others this is a stalling tactic so they don’t have to pay me my 6k refund. I guarantee that if I owed them money they would have processed my return months ago.
Shame on you Missouri Dept of Revenue.June 20, 2016 at 8:37 am #4150416CC
Unbelievable! I filed end of March, received by the state first week in April. June 1st I get a note that they have made an amendment to my return and that I will get a letter in the mail. The amendment states that I owe the state $33k+ because I am missing a W2 form. This is a big difference compared to the $13k the state owes me due to overpayment. My return was filed with the appropriate W2 and the state gets a W2copy direct from my employer. Now they say I need to wait another 8-10 weeks for my refund. This is an overall ploy not pay taxpayers what is rightfully theirs in a reasonable amount of time.June 11, 2016 at 6:04 pm #4150396W.S. Blevins
For those of you who are frustrated because of your overpayment of taxes being kept by the state, pay close attention. IT’S GOING TO GET WORSE. Start now by significantly decreasing or eliminating your state income tax withholding. It’s better to owe at the end of the year than to let them use your money all year long. Remember exactly how long it takes to receive your refund this year. When you do file your taxes, attach a note advising the state that processing their payment due will take precisely the same amount of time that it takes to receive your refund this year. If everyone does this, it will send a very strong message.June 1, 2016 at 6:01 pm #4150375Demetrius
This is the most recent info about the delays that I’ve found. 8-10 weeks because of fraudsJune 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm #4150374Saddness
The refund amount has been approved, but no due date is being given. So basically. they are just holding on to my money ….. just because.. SMHMay 31, 2016 at 10:30 pm #4150372Amy
Efile accepted by MO on 4/20. Still no refund. Six weeks in. I agree with filing a class action lawsuit. When you owe the state, they file a case in the Courts…then you get stuck with the tax fees and the court costs. But when they delay what they owe you, there’s no penalty. As citizens, we should take it to Court and force them to eat the Court costs while paying what we earned, plus interest.May 31, 2016 at 3:32 pm #4150370Tina
I filed on 4/10/16. I’m receiving the same blah, blah, blah “still processing”. Federal refund came in within 2 weeks and I filed at the same time from my H&R Block program. How can Federal get through these so quickly and Missouri be so far behind?May 31, 2016 at 12:06 pm #4150369ET II
Filed electronically 4/8/16 (someone in the CPA’s office dropped the ball and filed later than normal).
State still shows “received, not processed.” Same issue last year–it took so long to hear back, then the state made an error.
Seems the state takes way too long for electronic filers, and yet very few news stories as to why so many delays?? You would think some reporters would get on it. Has anyone heard from their state representatives?
I wonder if those who do not use electronic filing are waiting over two months?May 28, 2016 at 11:53 pm #4150368mike
We should start a class action lawsuit against Missouri for pulling this.May 24, 2016 at 2:58 am #4150356Frustrated
Filed 3/23/16. Still have not received my refund. This is ridiculous. I didn’t have an issue last year. This year is just been horribly drawn out.May 23, 2016 at 3:23 pm #4150355ty
MO state return accepted via turbotax 4/8, still waiting on return 6 weeks later. Very frustrating. My parents filed about the same time and got their refund within 2 weeks.May 20, 2016 at 9:16 am #4150352Sherry
Does anyone know how long it takes for a DDD once the refund amount has been approved?May 20, 2016 at 9:07 am #4150351Sherry
I am tired of being verbally abused when asking for status of my refund. The next time I call the state I will be speaking with a supervisor to provide me with my update.May 19, 2016 at 6:19 pm #4150348Rhonda
The department is processing your return, please allow additional time. The department refreshes the data on this application daily. However, during heavy processing periods, the status of your return may not change from day to day.” this is such a STUPID response… why not say they are behind and how far they are behind. this is going on 7 weeks for me …. RIDICULIOS!!! they always want their money NOW but when they owe you they are in no hurry …. Government & State , Congress… its all such BULL S***.May 19, 2016 at 4:12 pm #4150347Shannon
Accepted 2/23 as of 5/18/16 still waiting on check from MissouriMay 18, 2016 at 11:49 am #4150343Danielle
Does anyone know exactly how long Missouri has to pay you the refund without owing you interest? We filed 4/5, accepted 4/6 and still nothing.May 17, 2016 at 10:30 pm #4150340W.S. Blevins
Missouri is notorious for holding on to taxpayer refunds so as to gain as much interest as possible. Generally, the state will refund your money right before the point that they by law have to pay you interest on it, which is several weeks.
Your best bet is to dramatically decrease or eliminate entirely your state withholding so as to owe the state at the end of the year. In the end it will save you a lot of headaches.May 17, 2016 at 2:39 pm #4150338Tom Fuller
I really do not understand why it is taking so long. If we owe the State of Missouri you want your money NOW! The ones of us who receive a refund we wait, wait, and wait. We are entitled to our refund. Not fair at all.
And thanks for the useless information on your web sites.May 17, 2016 at 10:00 am #4150337Mike
We’ve all seen this:
The department is processing your return, please allow additional time. The department refreshes the data on this application daily. However, during heavy processing periods, the status of your return may not change from day to day.”
Really?…why bother posting that? Why not post something useful like: “Hey…sorry, we’re running behind 8-10 weeks…as usual…maybe we’ll get it right next year…”
So much for electronic filing…..7 weeks and counting….May 17, 2016 at 9:20 am #4150336Sam
Filed electronically through my accountant on April 6th and have not received a refund yet as of May 17th. Their site has said the following for the past few weeks. (The department is processing your return, please allow additional time.)
I can say that the delays do not surprise me. Last year I think it took 8-9 weeks. The year before that they processed my return in about 9 weeks but never sent me my refund. I ended up calling after 15 weeks and they basically said they made a mistake and must have forgot to send it and so they sent it to me that day. Long story short…. They are notoriously horrible at processing returns in a timely manner and regardless of the fact that they stated this year would be different, they are a complete joke.May 12, 2016 at 3:04 pm #4150322Cathy
Filed April 15th. Today is May 12th, still says processing. It’s been 4 weeks, wonder how much longer?May 12, 2016 at 1:43 pm #4150321Josh
Filed MO return using turbo tax on April 5. It was accepted same or next day. Still waiting for refund… Really not sure why it’s taking so long. MO Dept of Revenue site says it’s still processing. Wife and I have fairly simple return. Feds direct deposited refund within a week or two after filing. Missouri not really living up to “show me” standards.May 10, 2016 at 5:55 pm #4150311Paula
I electronically filed my tax return on April 8, 2016, and still have not received my refund. I just checked the State of Missouri’s website today and it still says processing. I have a very simple return, 1 W2, short form. Why in the world it would take more than 6 weeks to prepare and mail is beyond me.May 9, 2016 at 11:12 am #4150305Kathleen Barnett
I mailed in a paper form since I’m a Kansas resident halfway through March, WAY before the filing date. I’m still waiting! And when I called 573-751-3505 all I get is the runaround and no humans!!!
This is absolutely redicous!!February 18, 2016 at 3:46 pm #4141791Tyle
I’m in the some position, i filed 1/31 and accepted on the same date, still says received refund and processing. Frustrating when you see people who filed a week later get their return
Let me know what they say when you call.February 18, 2016 at 11:10 am #4141671Jessica H
I filed 1/29 and accepted 1/29 thru HR Block. Mine still says processing. On hold now to find out why the delay. This is the first time my husband have filed joint and had a refund from MO so I wanting to know if the statement “first time filing and owed a refund they won’t direct deposit” is true in anyone else’s experience.February 13, 2016 at 9:51 pm #4139643Kari
My ddd was supposed to be 2/11 and still nothing in my account. This is my first year filing in Missouri … I know my account information. What can the delay be?February 9, 2016 at 8:21 pm #4136033Woogie
I filed mo yesterday and received my text from TT that my return was accepted by the state. I checked online today and the state says they don’t have a return for me yet. Has anyone had this happen? Is the state still processing returns in basically 4 days?February 5, 2016 at 8:33 pm #4130504Kristen
I filed and was accepted on 1/25 I got processed and had a refund date of 1/29. Still no money in my account. Anyone else have this issue?
