What does it indicate when your amount zeroes out?February 21, 2019 at 4:01 pm #4291493Corey

How many days did it take for the money to show in your bank account for those of you who went from a credit refund to $0? My WMR changed overnight and now shows $0 but at the same time the site still shows processing..February 21, 2019 at 12:16 pm #4290766Big Daddy

My amount went from showing in green to Black zeroes. Hopefully that means a DDD is coming!February 19, 2019 at 7:40 pm #4284396Sms18
Hillary, I wouldn’t consider our refunds delayed (other than the standard delay to the 15th) unless it’s been more than 2 weeks after the general hold ended. So, if come March you don’t have your money yet, then it would be delayed.February 19, 2019 at 3:39 pm #4283360Hilary
Submitted initially on 1/30, via TurboTax. Rejected the next day with no explanation. Contacted DOR and was told there was an issue with TurboTax, not necessarily the actual return. Resubmitted on 2/2/19. Accepted on 2/3/19. No messages, except the standard “Your refund should be issued in two weeks”. Two weeks would have been Sunday. Monday was the holiday. I would have expected my refund today. But, the amount is still bracketed and still “processing”. No additional messages via DOR online about needing any additional information. If everybody’s refunds are going to be delayed for some reason, they should put a general notification on their website.February 19, 2019 at 5:51 am #4280832Nessi
I think state will require me to send my W2s again witch will delay my taxes till April…. bummer 😩February 18, 2019 at 7:23 pm #4279486Jen
I didn’t see any kicker info when I filed through TurboTax, I heard we will get one on the 2019 tax year.February 18, 2019 at 5:19 pm #4279123Rich
Mine was selected. Did anyone see any information about the kicker on their forms?February 18, 2019 at 5:14 pm #4278939Sms18
Jen, last year my return was under manual review and I didn’t get my money until may. I’d filed with the child care credit and had to send in documentation. They will probably be sending you a letter of some sort whether it’s about a specific credit or just verification. Check your messages in the revenue site.February 18, 2019 at 3:13 pm #4278759Jen
Is anyone still getting the Manual Peocessing screen ?February 18, 2019 at 2:27 pm #4278673TipTip
I am still waiting too! Waiting on state and fed both! Good grief! My refunds must be in route to build the wall 😒February 18, 2019 at 2:22 pm #4278645Jk
My amount disappeared Friday the 15th but says still processingFebruary 18, 2019 at 2:16 pm #4278629Jen
Mine still says Manual Processing with the refund amount in green and bracketed.February 18, 2019 at 11:00 am #4278150Big Tex
still nothing for me, checked this morning and still bracketed with the same message that it should be out in about 2 weeksFebruary 16, 2019 at 11:11 am #4273829Tara
Has anyone received their Oregon tax refund yet? ThxFebruary 12, 2019 at 11:43 am #4266770Big Tex
Submitted through turbo tax the day before federal filing opened up, and my refund amount is still bracketed on the DOR website :( hopefully it will come through in the next week or soFebruary 10, 2019 at 11:43 pm #4264859M. Kelly Dixon
So I just checked my account on the Oregon DOR website and it shows that I have a positive balance for my oregon state return that was accepted 2/3 hoping that means I’ll receive my return on the 15th when they start issuing them.February 2, 2019 at 9:27 am #4256166marcy e mcnally
I only filed my taxes for 2018 a week ago, but it occurred to me that in this day and age of everything being automated…it shouldn’t even take a single DAY to process peoples tax refunds, much less weeks. Either the state tax workers are lazy or the system needs to be amped up a little. Just sayin’.May 17, 2018 at 12:59 pm #4246862ksbw
Do you have your own portal, and if so how do you get to it on their website?April 29, 2018 at 12:43 am #4245780Sms18
So, I want to give a little bit of info I was told when I called yesterday. Turns out, the holdup is due to the department of revenue not receiving income information from places of employment. Whether your employer slacked, it got mixed up, whatever, it makes it hard for them to verify. So they give a time limit on when they verify by employer before sending it out to us. Seeing as they generally don’t get a copy of our w2 when we file, only what we input ourselves, it makes sense.
Hopefully everyone else still waiting gets an update soon.April 28, 2018 at 9:57 am #4245752Sms18
Finally an update! It shows it was processed and should get it within two weeks.April 26, 2018 at 2:05 pm #4245595Sms18
Anyone who’s had to submit proof of childcare, how long did it take before you were given a final update?April 25, 2018 at 9:56 pm #4245523Sms18
Well, I just submitted documents for proof of child care. Hopefully they’ll accept everything I spent days collecting between myself and the babysitter.April 25, 2018 at 1:42 pm #4245497kmpts7
well they finally loaded a letter to my portal. apparently they think i didn’t include some tax credits for the federal tax liability. which is crazy since i used the numbers from my fed filing in order to do my oregon filing. so they are now reducing my refund by $80. seriously. all that payroll and crazy from the state to get $80-it cost more than that to calculate it. BESIDES THE FACT THAT IT IS WRONG! i looked at my fed return and i did use the number from there. but the reduced it anyways because they think i “qualify” for a larger deduction than claimed. just because i may have qualified doesn’t mean that i took it. ugh. whatever. hopefully i should get my smaller refund in the next few days. so stupid.
” We adjusted or denied the federal tax subtraction to the federal income tax after credits on your federal return. Your federal income tax after credits may have been decreased if you qualified for a larger federal standard deduction than you claimed. “April 20, 2018 at 10:43 am #4245161luis
my amount went to 0.00.and no longer under manual review…. finally after 11 weeks of waiting….:-/ ..April 17, 2018 at 2:25 pm #4244840kmpts7
the state’s latest reply:
At this time I do not have an update for you regarding your 2017 tax return filed, no notices have been issued. If you do not receive a request for additional information or your refund after 12 weeks we may be able to send an update inquiry to our processing area on your behalf. Unfortunately at this time we do have to allow additional time for processing.
ugh. so stupid. they say to allow additional time, but do not say WHY.April 17, 2018 at 2:12 pm #4244838kmpts7
sms18- ugh. that sucks. im glad i kept all my child care stuff. but still ridiculous that the feds deposited my refund within two weeks of filing and here we are MONTHS later trying to figure out what is going on stateside. ill scan all of my stuff tonight to have it ready to load via the portal. thank you so much for updating what you are going through. it really is helping me to be ready for the next steps! :)
nessi-right?! ive been filing since 14, (almost 30 years!) and have been doing “electronic” filing for about half that time. this is also the first time ive had any hold up.April 17, 2018 at 10:53 am #4244815Sms18
Just an update, they’re requiring proof of the child care credit. So, no good update for me just yet. Frustrating that the state isn’t satisfied with my filed return but the government is. My childrens sitter already filed and reported what I paid her, of course they have no issue taking the taxes owed from her without proof of childcare, but can’t go forward with my return without extensive proof. I can get it sent to them, but this is ridiculous.April 17, 2018 at 10:16 am #4244810Nessi
Kmpts7 I have to and in both of my w2s. I was shocked, they gave me some story like because i do my taxes online they needed me to send them. I’ve been doing my taxes since I was 17 and never was asked for them from the state revenue before. Idk I’m just glad they are on the way now. Good luck!!April 17, 2018 at 10:11 am #4244808Nessi
An my amount went to 0.00 like normal! It’s on its way!April 17, 2018 at 10:04 am #4244806Nessi
My portal updated no longer under manual review 🙌🏾🙌🏾April 16, 2018 at 2:54 pm #4244741kmpts7
SMS18- so glad to hear you were able to actually get an update! we just moved into our new house, so I’ve updated via the portal our new address just in case. we didn’t have any 1099s. Only W-2s. I’d be surprised if they needed a copy of a W-2, but at this point who knows. Seems like they are really behind the times in comparison to other states. Please update once you receive your refund, I’d like to get an idea of how long it should take us. Thanks!April 14, 2018 at 3:54 pm #4244598Sms18
Nessi, if you have a scanner and laptop/computer, you could scan the needed documents and submit through The portal. There’s an option to “submit documents”. It took me a minute to figure it out myself. I sent it in 2 days ago and they’ve received them already. Hoping it’ll update Monday or tuesday.April 14, 2018 at 1:37 pm #4244593Nessi
@jessica143 I tried that they said follow the directions on the letter that said mail the documents. I mailed my w2s yesterday 🙏🏾🙏🏾April 12, 2018 at 10:39 pm #4244466Sms18
Jessica143, its confusing for me because I never even saw my amount like every one else, I have no idea what to expect. Driving me crazy. I was able to submit my documents through the portal and hope it’s enough. Now just to wait for it to all go through without anymore issues!April 12, 2018 at 8:48 pm #4244459jessica143
Everyone getting the letters for W2s and 1099s submit them online through the Revenue Online portal!!! They get reviewed in 2-3 days if that, you can track it to see if they have been processed and then you should see your amount zero out and then they issue your refund quickly. They actually owed me more money so I got a letter a few days after I submitted my documents saying they adjusted my refund. I got the letter online on 4/5 and it was dated for 4/11 and my refund was deposited on 4/10. Got my letter in the mail on 4/2April 12, 2018 at 6:21 pm #4244449Carma Strong
This state continues to be an utter disappointment to me. First I was asked by the State of Oregon to take on 2 children who cannot watch themselves while I’m working. Then paid cash to the caretaker but because I’ve got no reciepts I have to pay this greedy state instead of getting a refund. Thanks Oregon a real piece of work.April 12, 2018 at 5:54 pm #4244442Sms18
FINALLY got a letter in the mail. I talked to someone on the phone, he did mention that these letters will not show up in the online portal. I’m very relieved it’s just my w2 and 1099r they want, it would’ve been a huge hassle gathering info for the child care credit, which I can provide, but still a hassle.
Hopefully I can get these documents submitted quickly and get a better update soon!!April 12, 2018 at 5:24 pm #4244437JeepDude
I have lived in Oregon most of my life and have always had to pay extra each year, never a refund. I’m now retired and didn’t work much extra last year and finally get a refund of almost $200, mostly thanks to the kicker. I filed on Jan 28, and just received a letter today asking for w-2’s and 1099’s. WTF? 10 weeks after I file they want copies of documents they should already have? Do only people getting refunds get manual processing? Mexico is sounding better all the time.April 10, 2018 at 7:05 am #4244138jessica143
My refund was sent this morning. It matches the date on the offset adjustment letter I received in my online portal last Thursday or Friday.
I highly encourage anyone getting letters and requests for additional information to submit them through the online portal. It is much faster than mailing anything back and it allows you to see when it’s been processed.
Good luck everyone!April 9, 2018 at 2:16 pm #4244075Sms18
I’ve tried calling and they won’t tell me anything. I may give them a call again today.April 8, 2018 at 4:10 am #4243960jessica143
SMS18 – I would call them. The letter they sent about needing additional documentation never showed in my online portal. It just arrived in the mail.
I thought it was odd because they should have all W2 and 1099 info because it is sent to them electronically by the employers and other agencies that issue them. When I called Thursday I was told they did not get my 1099 from the agency that issued it and that’s why I got held up in review.
Might be worth a call to see.April 7, 2018 at 9:59 am #4243925Sms18
Jessica143, I have some hope.
That’s awesome you’re getting progress! I filed 1/29 and am still stuck at 0.00, never seeing my amount in green and manual review. Hoping I at least get a letter or something soon.April 7, 2018 at 5:07 am #4243794jessica143
My Revenus Online portal updated this morning. I submitted the documents they requested from me electronically through the portal on Tuesday, they got processed in a day or two and I logged in this morning and my amount was $0.00 (green previously) and I had a letter stating my refund was more then H&R Block had said it was going to be.
Looked at the Where’s My Refund status bar and it no longer says manual review it just says processing and if a refund is due it should be issued in 2 weeks. I have 2 or the 3 blue balls on the status indicator filled so just waiting on them to actually send the refund now.
Filed 2-15 accepted 2-16 and have had a green amount now for almost a month. Finally got the letter on 4/3 and submitted requested documents (one 1099).
Hope everyone that is still here starts to see some progress too!April 3, 2018 at 4:00 pm #4243554jessica143
Quick update…I am in the same boat as Luis…I just received a letter today dated for 3/30/2018 requesting copies of W-2’s and 1099’s that show the taxes I paid to Oregon. Being as I only filed a tax return to get my kicker check benefit since I was a resident in 2015 and 2016, I only had a 1099-G with very little tax paid to Oregon from the Unemployment Department. I called to verify that this is all I had to send in along with the letter signed and sent back and the lady told me “yep that’s it”. There is no way to submit this online or fax it. I have to SNAIL mail this back. ONE FORM! Less than $300 in taxes paid to them and I can’t believe they don’t have access to to another state departments forms that were sent out. WHAT THE HELL!
This is crazy. I filed almost 2 months ago and this is where it is currently at. Waiting on one form and I am not even a resident anymore. I have a feeling that others who have seen their amounts in green indefinitely will be getting this same letter.
Oh and they couldn’t even be bothered to post this on the Revenue Online portal so I could have seen it as soon as it was sent and acted on it faster.April 3, 2018 at 3:37 am #4243485Sms18
Kmpts7, I’m not sure. This is my 4th year filing and every year I’ve gotten a refund and never had this issue. Only thing that makes sense is maybe the state is so broke they’re putting off refunds they can’t afford to pay out right away.April 2, 2018 at 9:23 pm #4243467luis
got a letter today asking for a copy of w-2 .. and refund amount…April 2, 2018 at 6:06 pm #4243428kmpts7
SMS18- I am in the same boat as you. Its super frustrating. I have not once seen the amount show up, it has always been zero. That being said the past two years I have paid money to OR, this is the first year we have gotten any refund since we moved here. Maybe since we have traditionally paid every year (my husband was putting the wrong withholding down on his W4) our file is flagged since this year they owe us money? I’ve actually emailed and called and gotten no where with the state. When I asked if they could explain why it was in manual review or what stage it was in on the review…I got the same pat answer “Some files take longer than others”. When I asked if there was anyone I could speak to or email-I was told no. There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with my file, but who knows at this point!March 30, 2018 at 11:24 pm #4243152Sms18
It would be nice to see a positive update from someone who HAS NOT seen their amount even show up. I see everyone has at least seen their balance. I’m extremely discouraged guys. It’s been longer than 2 months now.March 30, 2018 at 5:55 pm #4243123Kayla
Amount zeroed out 3/29. Deposit pending my account for 4/2.March 29, 2018 at 2:26 pm #4242939Kayla
Checked mine this morning. Amount zeroed out finally. But still says manual review processing. Hopefully it will be deposited soon. Fingers crossed.March 29, 2018 at 5:58 am #4242867Nessi
Oh yes no letters/alertsMarch 29, 2018 at 5:56 am #4242865Nessi
I’m happy you got yours @jimmy503 that gives me hope lol my amount is still in green it looks like (xxx.xx)!! This is so irritating but I can wait thank God I didn’t really need it for anything….
File date 1/19 accepted the same day I’ve been seeing manual Review since then and my amount has always shown more than what hnr bock said I would get it’s never showed (0.00) in green .March 28, 2018 at 10:06 pm #4242845luis

Jessica143, maybe, but it isn’t the first year this has happened. I’m going to look into that though.
