Still nothingMarch 5, 2019 at 7:07 am #4309173
Checked this morning and mine is still validating but it was deposited into my bank account. Guess you cant rely on the online system. Just fyi for anyone else…..March 5, 2019 at 3:53 am #4309146
Still no change in mine. It states validating, we are also owed over 2k. I wonder why it’s taking this long. Haven’t received anything in the mail about this issue either.March 4, 2019 at 7:30 pm #4309051
Filed & accepted 2/8/19 been stuck on “validating” since the 9th. We’ve had no changes for several years & never had an issue until now! Federal was accepted the same day & received it 7 days later, first time this has ever happened. Don’t understand what the heck is going on!March 4, 2019 at 5:26 pm #4309010
Still Neverending validatingMarch 4, 2019 at 2:42 pm #4308952
Still waiting as usual on my Missouri state return. It’s been 7 weeks and it’s been stuck in processing the entire time. They owe me over 2 grand. 2018 is the last year I ever pay that wretched state taxes.March 4, 2019 at 12:40 pm #4308890
I filed 1/18 and am still “Validating”. GrrrrrMarch 4, 2019 at 4:54 am #4308727
Six weeks to validate? Wtf?! What could they possibly have to validate that takes that long? Is someone going to come to my house? This seems really excessive.March 3, 2019 at 8:32 am #4308479
Yes, myself. I have been in queue since 6 Feb. I filed 25 Jan. Active Duty, here! MO taxed the crap out of me during my DITy move so I’m expecting a big check from them as well. MO is my SLR- so I don’t know if that makes them process it any different🤷🏻♀️ But yes I’ve been waiting as well. I’ve called numerous times they’ve told me it take 2-4 weeks to process once it’s in queue. I e emailed the governors office and they responded within 24 hours. Now they DoR is saying it takes 6-8 weeks. I’m just sitting and waiting as well.March 3, 2019 at 3:11 am #4308453
Active duty here living overseas and have not received my return. Accepted end of Jan, says still processing. Any other military having this issues?March 2, 2019 at 1:10 pm #4308200
Filed and accepted 1/30. It’s been switching neteeen validating and inqueue for a month. Today it says my return was adjusted. Ok about tired of this. Government is nothing but criminals looking to take our money.March 2, 2019 at 12:10 pm #4308173
I filed January 26. Both accepted. I recieved federal refund Feb 5. Still validating for Missouri. I’m owed just under $1000 too so it’s frustrating.March 2, 2019 at 6:38 am #4307986
I filed on 1/22, still no state tax refund. Please update as they come in. I would like to know if I need to be worried that something maybe wrong.March 1, 2019 at 3:52 pm #4307598
Mine is the exact same thing. I talk to someone who said mine was processing but it shouldn’t be more than 6-8 weeks. That was last week.. I was also told that we should be laid interest on anything over 45 days so it looks like they will be paying alot of intrest out this year. Mine was accepted 1/28, still valadating according to online, and I have already received my federal return…. So do please let us know if you find out more..March 1, 2019 at 12:37 pm #4307450
I emailed the Governor’s office this morning. Today marks 5 weeks since I have filed my tax return. This is the longest I’ve ever had to wait in the more than 20 years I’ve been doing my taxes. It just continues to say “Validating.” I have called the DoR 3 times and have received 3 different answers. The only thing that remains the same is being told to wait 10-12 weeks for processing. That is ridiculous since the law states to issue refunds within 45 days. Today is 35 days for me – and many of you I am guessing.
I will let you know what happens and if I get a response or not.February 28, 2019 at 4:26 pm #4306831
I’ve been on “Processing your return” since 6 February. Every time I call I keep getting told “give it 2-4 weeks”. This is the longest I’ve ever had to wait for a Missouri return. I already received my Federal return and I do not have any offsets so I don’t know what’s taking so long. Missouri is my State of my Legal Residence; however I am Active Duty..and on orders here at Fort Bragg. Something isn’t right. I see other people who have filed after me getting their MO tax refunds, already. Hmmmmm 😏🤔February 28, 2019 at 12:41 pm #4306688
My significant other still Validating. Filed 1/28 I think MO accepted 1/30 Federal refund last week.February 28, 2019 at 10:35 am #4306602
I filed 1/25, accepted 1/28, still on “Validating”. Frustrating! Maybe since I work in MO but live in IL I am being punished, ha!February 28, 2019 at 8:25 am #4306481
@ Sam… no offsets, etc.
Was afraid to check today but like Angie H our refund was in our account today, too!
I really hope this give hope to a lot of people and that a large batch were finally processed and deposited so hopefully this kind of pattern continues. Good luck everyone! I know how stressful it is to wait on something that is rightfully owed to you.February 28, 2019 at 7:24 am #4306417
Just posting for informational update.
We filed January 27, accepted January 28; has been sitting in validating since. Finally yesterday received deposit date for today and just check…….WE GOT OUR REFUND!
so hopefully money is coming soon for all.February 28, 2019 at 1:35 am #4306294
Im still processing wow they take foreverFebruary 27, 2019 at 3:43 pm #4305893
Did you have any issues with you refund initially, like an offset? They said I had one but could not give me further info and then it disappeared since they turned their system off. Just wondering if you were in the same boat or different situation.February 27, 2019 at 11:45 am #4305627
Just checked the website and finally moved from validating to processed and completed with a DDD of 2/28/19. I did not receive an email nor a text with this change, however. Just thought to check the “Where’s My Return” this morning. Hoping it actually does deposit tomorrow. Will let everyone know for comparison purposes. I filed 1/28, was accepted by both Fed and Missouri on that date. DDD from Fed deposited last Friday. (We have never had our Fed before state)
Last year, our Missouri refund hit our account within 4 days from filing/being accepted. Hopefully their program will work more quickly next year if they have ironed the kinks out. Fingers crossed. (and that we’ll still get a refund at all…)February 27, 2019 at 10:36 am #4305554
Return accepted 01/3018. Went as far as validating and no change since. Called DoR 4 times to no avail of course. Sent a message to the Governor’s office yesterday and another today Feb 27th. No reply.February 27, 2019 at 6:07 am #4305174
I emailed the governor, and his office forwarded my email to the DOR which in turn called me. I asked him if it was true about the 45 days and he said yes and told me that they actually changed and it was almost a 400% increase. We shall see.February 26, 2019 at 9:03 am #4304034
Yes, the law states that the Dept of Rev has 45 days to pay your refund or they pay interest. However, the interest rate is very low—.01%. And they don’t have to pay until it reaches at least $1.00. So it’s really not a big deal to them to sit on refunds…especially smaller ones. BUT, if we are late paying THEM we pay 4% interest.
Just another way for our government to cheat it’s people.February 26, 2019 at 6:31 am #4303335
Paid 12.99 through FreeTaxUsa to get my refund faster and all i see is someone getting richer and were still poor while they keep our money. When i called them i was told they never received mine but when i confronted her and said well your own web site says you received my taxes you just have been processesing then for over 3 weeks she put me on hold. When she came back on the line she said by law we have 8 weeks to process them then hung up on me. I think we should all demand a refund. Also go on there official Facebook page and start leaving comments about this and bet we get our money we worked for.February 25, 2019 at 3:05 pm #4302051
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
Desirea M Pruitt
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?
