I made a call today to the Dept. of Revenue. Initially, it said I had an offset and then changed status and has been stuck on validating.
The woman told me that the new offset system was having problems recognizing offsets so they turned the whole system off. Now they are trying to fix that system. So, my refund shows pending – which could be taken for an offset – or it could not be taken – or part of it could be taken. I will not know until they fix the system and turn it back on. I have never even received an INTENT TO OFFSET letter. If they do offset me this year (for an overpayment that happened 7.5 years ago – and have not gotten letters about), they will send an offset notice at that time. AND in 7 years, I’ve been getting my state refunds with no issues. Why now? And why not warn me that this COULD HAPPEN. And to be honest, I forgot all about the overpayment since I wasn’t getting letters about it.
So it’s a waiting game. I had also sent out an email today as well so I’ll see if I get a response to that as well.February 25, 2019 at 2:21 pm #4301910
I see a lot of you still complaining – – and understandably so, but did you do as I suggested and email the Governor’s office?
I emailed them, they responded within 24 hours, forwarded my message to someone competent at the DoR, and instead of spewing that “6-10 weeks” BS they told me what I needed to do, and now my bars went from Validating to I’ll be getting my money within a few days.
Swallow your pride and take care of your business, because if you don’t you’ll be sitting at the bottom of the pile with everyone else and pushed to the backburner probably right until before the 45-day mark.February 25, 2019 at 1:18 pm #4301798
Still waiting. Filed 1/30 and accepted same day. Bars change from validating to in queue. I never get a date.February 25, 2019 at 10:02 am #4301471
39 days since I filed, 27 days since I was accepted, 23 days validating. And no answers for any of it. But they have 45 days and then they have to pay you interest. Federal is set for a DDD of 2/27. This is all frustrating, but I know it’ll come eventually. Hang in there y’all!February 25, 2019 at 7:02 am #4301102
Still valadating day what 26 I think maybe 27……. I wish I just knew ANYTHINGFebruary 24, 2019 at 11:25 pm #4300713
@ Sam- exact same thing happened to me and still no answers and no refund… So Im still waitingFebruary 24, 2019 at 10:56 pm #4300638
To AT and Angel-
I think we’re in the same situation and it’s confusing. I filed my taxes on 1/25. MO accepted on 1/28. It went thru all 4 bars and said my refund was intercepted. When I called they didn’t see anything about an offset. On Feb 7 I got a text saying my status changed and now it’s on bar 2-validating my return. It no longer says anything about an offset. I called Dept of Revenue and the first woman I talked to said I’d get my refund. The next one said it could still be taken if there’s an offset. I’ve never even received a letter about this. My status has been stuck on validating for 17 days now. Have you guys gotten any answers yet…or your refunds??February 23, 2019 at 6:14 am #4297708
Just fyi they are doing a massive software update. That is what I was told.February 23, 2019 at 2:07 am #4297006
My state taxes have never been this long i keep checking and its checking info already got federal back at the beginning of February why so longFebruary 22, 2019 at 11:17 am #4294676

Just called the number below and was told if I E-filed it could take 10-12 weeks after filing but 4-6 weeks if mailed. This does not make any sense. E-filing is done to get return faster.February 22, 2019 at 6:45 am #4293738
My missouri tax refund shows issued on 2/6/2019 but I have yet to receive this payment. Can this issue be looked into please?February 21, 2019 at 5:59 pm #4291885
If you’re still having issues with the MO DoR and your refund, I encourage you to contact the Governor’s office via e-mail or phone.
Last year, MO was caught holding individual tax refunds to pay other debts. Who knows what they’re up to this year.
Visit https://governor.mo.gov/contact-us or call (573) 751-3222 to register your concern.February 21, 2019 at 5:26 pm #4291760
I finally got a response from the gov’s office. They forwarded my information to the DOR and the person replied back and said – – – (drumroll please) that my Missouri returns weren’t signed therefore they couldn’t be processed.
Why couldn’t they just tell me that within the first 3 times that I called? :-\
So, anyone who has been waiting longer than 2 weeks to get processed, I suggest you sign your returns, scan it, and email it to [email protected] just to be on the safe side.February 21, 2019 at 1:17 pm #4290979
This is getting ridiculous accepted 24 days ago getting federal tomorrow no a peep from Missouri still validatingFebruary 21, 2019 at 9:27 am #4290108
It doesn’t take long. I had mine the next morning after that message. I used Chime.February 21, 2019 at 9:22 am #4290083
Got a text last night that my status has changed called this morn and they told me refund pending hope it dont take to longFebruary 20, 2019 at 11:01 pm #4288861
Is there a tax account transcript that we can access through Missouri ? The way that the IRS has it set up?February 20, 2019 at 10:29 pm #4288762
jerry w. smith
Getting tired of this crap. Return accepted jan.28th still processing. My daughter filed and got refund a week later.February 20, 2019 at 11:49 am #4286558
Well my s/o got her Federal on Chime yesterday but Missouri still validating. Filed 1/28 EITC/ACTC/Education credit PATH then 2/22 DDD paid on Chime 2/19 afternoon but still NO MISSOURI!
Way to go Missouri!February 19, 2019 at 11:06 pm #4284976
Still 2nd bar. Over 3 weeks, will have my federal before state. Missouri is no help, don’t waste your time callingFebruary 19, 2019 at 8:37 pm #4284565
@ Ashley 8-11 amFebruary 19, 2019 at 8:35 pm #4284559
: try this number (573) 751-2578 I called and let them know I was inquiring about my individual tax. It took them 2 mins to get me in the phone with an actual human being. Promise, that’s a real number. They only answer from 8-11 thoughFebruary 19, 2019 at 6:51 pm #4284209
What is going on with people having a DDD and not getting the money deposited into their accounts – – sometimes for even weeks at a time?
I give up.February 19, 2019 at 6:39 pm #4284161
Dept of revenue site says sent to my bank 2/13 still not in account and not pending after speaking to my bank and numerous supervisors I have also contacted the dept of revenue by email. Anyone know how to actually speak to a live person? Everything seems to be automated and no way to get a live operator.February 19, 2019 at 3:04 pm #4283175
I have a small offset. Is it true that they will mail me a check instead of DD due to the offset?February 19, 2019 at 12:11 pm #4282380
Mo state is in que, any clue after that when its deposited?February 19, 2019 at 9:26 am #4281576
Still no state refund.
Filed 1/26. Tax prep shows it was accepted 1/26.
Revenue still shows validating online.
I called the Dept of Revenue this morning and was told that since they got a new system this year, they’re still trying to work out all the kinks of it and it’s just a matter of waiting for it to be processed and released.February 19, 2019 at 12:42 am #4280476
Ron, that happened to me also but then I realized I was putting my federal refund amount in on states website now my status on state is back to 2 blue bars. ‘ filed 2/29 accepted 2/29 processing 2/29 still the same old thing!!**:##!!February 18, 2019 at 9:16 pm #4279789
Says my Missouri taxes were accepted on Jan 28th, but when I check their website says cannot find any information.. anyone else having this issue? Turbo tax says it was accepted but Missouri is saying they never received it..February 18, 2019 at 8:36 pm #4279650
I don’t think they do that by last name because my last name is Dittmer I still haven’t received mine. I wish they did.February 18, 2019 at 8:34 pm #4279645
Has anybody set up direct deposit and then they say they’re going to mail you a check by a certain date and have you received the check before the certain date that they gave you?February 18, 2019 at 8:19 pm #4279611
This is a pretty random question….but do you think they go in alphabetical order? My last name begins with a C …for anyone who’s already revived theirs…what does your last name begin with?? Just curiousFebruary 18, 2019 at 3:33 pm #4278814
I guess they used my refund to pay for my tax prep fees.February 18, 2019 at 3:06 pm #4278746
Check the status again and now it’s saying a check will be mailed out on the 26th when I signed up for electronic deposits so I don’t know what’s going on least I’m getting it it back at some point in my life. Filed 2/29 accepted on 2/29 processing on 2/29February 17, 2019 at 6:35 pm #4276908
My return changed from processed (me owing and them taking the refund)back to validating. What could this mean?🤔February 17, 2019 at 12:29 pm #4276306
Still says sent in the 6th and still no money . How long does it take to get a direct depositFebruary 17, 2019 at 8:30 am #4275882
Same I’m getting my Federal on 2/22 as well but can’t get any answers out of missouriFebruary 17, 2019 at 8:15 am #4275844
Well my s/o filed 1/28 with EITC/ACTC/Education and the Federal updated this morning for 2/22 but Missouri still just validating! That’s crazy.February 17, 2019 at 7:04 am #4275717
Has been processing since 1/28…. Still processing….. No one can give you any answers …..February 17, 2019 at 1:04 am #4275258
Still in queue. I have lived in Missouri 20 years now and have never been this frustrated. This is ridiculous. They have had my return since 1/30.February 16, 2019 at 10:21 pm #4274741
I wonder if they’re holding it if we have EITC & ACTC as well…like the Federal. This is just crazy. I’ve filed since the 25th; got accepted and it’s been processing since the 28th. This is ridiculous. Both systems MO state & Federal have been unavailable all day today.February 16, 2019 at 10:00 pm #4274720
Check my refund status again and once again bars went Gray and the service is unavailable again this is the third time this is getting me quite cranky! Filed on the 29th accepted on the 29th and processing since the 29th….February 16, 2019 at 10:09 am #4273653
Checked mine again today and it went to no bars again but does say we are processing your return I never seem the system say that so maybe that’s good.” Lets hope!!!! This is day 18February 15, 2019 at 7:40 pm #4272228
18 days and still waiting….. Processing….. Always processing….February 15, 2019 at 2:58 pm #4271769
My DDD was on the 2/6 and I’m still waiting on direct deposit. So mad. Called Last week said could take 7-10days to be deposited.February 15, 2019 at 2:57 pm #4271767
My dad was on the 2/6 and I’m still waiting on direct deposit. So mad. Called Last week said could take 7-10days to be deposited.February 15, 2019 at 2:10 pm #4271709
I can’t even get through to talk to someone this year is so messed up come on Missouri get your crap togetherFebruary 15, 2019 at 1:04 pm #4271600
I lived and worked temporarily in the state for about 5 months (Not sure if this has anything to do with the delay) But I filed 1/26 got approved 1/29 and STILL waiting.. it says I am in the “validating” stage…. How much longer will it take after validating stage?February 15, 2019 at 12:28 pm #4271520
I talked to people at liberty tax don’t know if this is true but she said if you have credits Missouri making people wait mid February too I said why come they told know one this but this can’t be trueFebruary 15, 2019 at 12:15 pm #4271496
Still waiting 17 days laterFebruary 15, 2019 at 10:10 am #4271244
So, I took Jason’s advice and contacted the governors office via email. They responded that I needed to contact DOR and they would forward my email to the director, and I should receive a timely response.
Haha, missouri is all kinds if messed up this year
My girlfriend owned $13, they had her accepted, processed and complete in 48 hrs. I am owed $600 and its been over 2 weeks playing the waiting game.
Ridiculous, I know not to have additional money withheld this year.February 15, 2019 at 8:56 am #4271106
My refund status for Missouri said it was refunded on2/13/19 and it is still not in my account. Has anyone else had this issue?February 14, 2019 at 7:29 pm #4270250
I don’t even care anymore 😂 Federal will slide in long before state will. To heck with you, Missouri Dept of Revenue. I guess I’ll see my money sometime in the next 8-10 weeks ((hopefully!))!!! 😠😩February 14, 2019 at 7:16 pm #4270239
Still validatingFebruary 14, 2019 at 5:38 pm #4270142
I just sent a scathing email to the Dep. of Revenue after getting off ANOTHER phone call with ZERO answers. At this point I think we should all rally and call or email Governor Parson.
Whoever this may concern,
I have called, sent emails, and nobody seems to know any answers other than “it will take up to 10-12 weeks for processing” or “there is a glitch in the system.”
I am at my wits end because I am a taxpaying citizen disabled veteran and I keep getting the runaround…but if I OWED money, I am pretty sure you would want your money without any excuses. Plus, I sent Taylor Hollingsworth an email 3 days ago asking a simple question and haven’t gotten a response, when I know it takes less than 2 minutes to respond to a basic question about my account.
So at this point, I will need a direct email to my State Governor Parson so that I can write a letter, or a telephone number will do. If I don’t get a response to this email, I have no issue with driving from St. Louis to personally speak with him or his representative.
– – –
I went through the exact same thing year with jumping through hoops for monies that are owed to me, and this year it is worse: you claimed there was a “glitch” in your system and my taxes were never received when I electronically submitted them January 28…and I never would have known they weren’t received had I not took the initiative to call. However, my aunt and grandmother used the EXACT software I used and we all filed on the same day and theirs went through without a hitch.
So yes, I need to get in contact with Gov. Parson. I am disabled and on a fixed income…if I weren’t in dire straits I wouldn’t be so adamant about this.February 14, 2019 at 4:11 pm #4270052
Has anyone that has called got any real answers other then it’ll be 10-12 weeksFebruary 14, 2019 at 3:10 pm #4269934
Anyone have the number to call to talk to these idiots? This is taking way too long.February 14, 2019 at 2:57 pm #4269916
accepted 01/22/2019 site says validating, got email moved to next step 11/2 weeks ago but never moved. Son got his after 2 weeks with site saying processing..What a joke!February 14, 2019 at 9:40 am #4269517
Got an email that the status changed. Logged in and still in queue. Nothing but a tease.February 14, 2019 at 4:34 am #4269210
Filed 1/26, accepted 1/29.
Today is day 16, STILL validating.
I’m callin’ ‘em up today when they open their office. This is crappp. 💩February 14, 2019 at 3:48 am #4269195
accepted on Jan 28th still on validating first time filing in Missouri. Dont know what is taking so long. Recieved Federal 10 days ago.February 13, 2019 at 5:35 pm #4268741
Mine has been accepted since 1/28.. I will have an offset this year for a whole $56.00 I owe so I am guessing that is why mine is taking so long now…. They owe me a whole lot more than $56 so they need to get on it already… It has been 16 days since they accepted mine and haven’t herd a thing, I know a bunch of people at my job got theirs and they filed a week after I did…. Never had this problem before and not the first time I owed them…. They really need to get it togather😕February 13, 2019 at 5:24 pm #4268729
Filed February 6, 2019
Accepted: February 9th, 2019
I was validated and processed by the 10th of February. I have a DDD for February 14, 2019. Hang on ladies and gents.
Happy Valentine’s Day Lovebirds ❤
– Kelly-BellyFebruary 13, 2019 at 4:01 pm #4268626
Mines went from recieved to validating straight to complete no release date. Called last friday the guy told me it was in process to be sent. Checked a few days later for a date and guess what guys… Back to validating!! Only good thing is if they take longer then 45 days you get paid intrrst i guess. Federal might come first im thinking its a sad situation when normally you get your money in a week..February 13, 2019 at 12:42 pm #4268315
Check the status of my return again and it went back to Blue bars to validating ‘yay I’m so excited that we made it this far already’ come on already get your shit together!! Filed on the 29th February accepted 29th of February validating ever since it would go gray bars to validating it went to gray bars again this morning and when I just checked again it went back to validating. seriously?February 13, 2019 at 12:39 pm #4268308
But their system to take our taxes out of every paycheck wasn’t glitching, that’s for sure😂February 13, 2019 at 11:28 am #4268245
My refund is still validating as well. I called this morning and asked if there was something I needed to send in because I’ve never waited this long. I was told because of a glitch in the system last November that processing is slower and they need a little more time.February 13, 2019 at 10:59 am #4268211
Got mine 2/13/2019February 13, 2019 at 10:42 am #4268182
Filed 1/30 accepted 1/30 been in queue since 2/3. This is ridiculous. Federal was less than a week from file to direct deposit.February 13, 2019 at 10:06 am #4268145
Back to validating. 🤦🏼♀️February 13, 2019 at 9:34 am #4268103
Well my state was not on hold last year so I don’t know why mines still ValidatingFebruary 13, 2019 at 9:19 am #4268083February 13, 2019 at 9:17 am #4268081
Mine is all gray again. It doesn’t say anything at all. It’s all blank. 🤦🏼♀️February 13, 2019 at 9:04 am #4268059
Filed on January 29th accepted January 29th since then it was validating then a week later I checked and the bars all went gray, then a day after I checked and it went back on the second Blue Bar since then it’s been validating again this morning at 7:52 I got a text message saying the status has changed please log on when I logged on it all turned gray again so I’m not sure what’s going on hopefully they processed my return it’s been so long playing the waiting game.February 13, 2019 at 8:16 am #4267963
From what I gather, Yes. That is why we are still validating.
