    I did my taxes on 25 Jan 16 on the wheres my refund it said that it should take 4-6 weeks but usually se it within 21 days I was like alright. then the day of the 6th week I got put in manual review so I called and was like it took 6 weeks for the computer to put me in manual review and can take up to 10 weeks “ODD” and they didn’t have an answer so I wait till 24 Mar which is roughly 8 Weeks and call again but this time when I check it said 12 weeks or longer but if you look online it says oregons returns are on time what are we on wizard time. I am irritated because I do not have to actually pay taxes being that im mil but why not its like a forced savings account for me never again will they be able to use my money.

    Today my refund status went from manual review 12 wks to the regular “processing”. It did take about a week for the status to change from when I verified my ID online though. When I log into my account on the ORS website I see the refund amount too, so I’m praying that it goes through soon because quite frankly… This has been a nightmare to deal with.

    Oh, I have created an ODR account, but I can’t get into it. The site rejects my sign in, even though I use the same sign in for everything, nor will the site re-send me a new password or username. I have requested that the site re-send my password/username at least 5 times, nothing.

    Again, still, nothing. I completed the identity ‘quiz’ on Saturday, initially approved 1/20. My WMR continues to say in process, could take 12 weeks or more. No further information provided, no movement. My refund is very simple and very straightforward, no offset no childcare etc. I’ve given up, calling is pointless.

    #4149782 Reply

    Thanks for updating.

    Anybody that got switched to the 12 week update been refunded?

    #4149774 Reply

    Refund received this morning. Three business days after ID verification completed.

    #4149768 Reply

    Actually, my wife and I got married this year so the kicker increased. The adjustment was based on our combined single returns from 2014. Still haven’t seen it though.

    #4149765 Reply

    Can you elaborate? Adjustment to your kicker as in you’re owe more $ or was it reduced?

    #4149753 Reply

    Update: Did ID verification. Received letter about offset/adjustment for kicker. Says balance zero in my account and full proposed refund. Not been deposited yet. Any ideas? Letter sent 3/21.

    #4149721 Reply

    Same here Yvonne. Switched from 10 weeks to 12 weeks sometime last week. Haven’t got anything in the mail. Hoping to get the refund soon.

    #4149717 Reply

    Filed February 7th accepted same day federal came back fast I’ve been in manual review for a long time went from 10 weeks now to 12 weeks. I haven’t received a letter nothing my return is simple nothing new and not much coming back but pisses me off I paid a lot into the state, something smells fishy.

    #4149696 Reply

    I have noticed that anyone that has an offset or had there refund amount change got there refund processed quicker. My fiance’s still says manual review and doesn’t have any letters stating they need more info. I filed two weeks after him and mine was processed and offset in 12 days even after it went into manual review.

    #4149691 Reply

    When you filed your tax return you should have been given the amt you were due back from the kicker. Did you verify if the amt deposited matches the kicker? Otherwise you might have had an offset where the rest was paid towards an outstanding debt.

    But as for myself.. I’m still stuck in manual review despite passing the ID verification I did last week. So frustrating that the ORS doesn’t appear to know what the hell they are doing, ugh! I’ve been tempted to call again but the high chances of being stuck on hold just to be told they have no idea why my refund is under review tells me I shouldn’t bother. So I guess I’ll patiently wait for a resolution, if ever.

    #4149690 Reply

    I got a partial refund – looking further into it I guess they only deposited the kicker but not the rest of my refund? Has this happened to anyone else? When I check the where’s my refund site it just says that my refund has been deposited, but nothing indicating it was only the kicker. So frustrating!

    Mine was accepted on 2/7 and went into manual review instantly with the 10 week wait. Today it says 12 weeks? Wtf? Has anyone else had it change like that? I used tt efile and fed came back in a week. It’s all the same as last year’s and I have never had a problem before. This sucks, I totally count on that. It’s only 1072 I’ve gotten bigger refunds quicker previous years :(

    #4149675 Reply

    Both fed and state were filed tt, fed came in about a week later and state said manual review right away. It said wait 10 weeks for processing. Well I checked today and now it says 12 weeks! Wtf Oregon?!? It’s only 1,072.00 nothing weird, same small amount of child care and same provider. This is crappy, I count on that every year to catch up and this year is a big hassel! Just pay us all back our money, not that hard!

    I filed a straightforward simple return with Turbo Tax. I was accepted by both State and Federal on January 21. I just received a letter of request for identity verification. I completed the ridiculous steps, no further information available at all. Maybe I will receive my refund? Maybe next week? Maybe never?

    #4149657 Reply

    I created an account no oregon dept of rev. site. Where do I look to see if I have an offset?
    I created an account but don’t see anything like that. My refund says ontime processed. WMR changed today to say “some manual reviews take 12 weeks”
    hopefully I get an update or something soon.

    #4149654 Reply

    Update: got my refund today.

    #4149635 Reply

    It’s amazing to me that they are quick to manually review the returns that are being offset but others are still waiting for no good reason. It also amazes me that I have spoken with 3 people with Oregon revenue and no one was “at Liberty” to tell me this. No I’m going to have to wait even longer for an appeal to go through.

    #4149632 Reply

    I just did the same thing. I apparently owed some money for a hospital bill and they took my whole refund… Well at least I know now that I will not be getting a refund

    #4149627 Reply

    In Manual Review as well. Got the letter yesterday as most of you did for ID Verification, but I’m a little worried because after filling the verification it said they could request more information, and I know that’s been a possibility with my return from the beginning as I claimed daycare. However, after finishing the ID Verification my WMR went from “Manual Review” to the regular 3-4 week processing….will update if mine come in soon, but I highly doubt it. Filed and accepted 2/23

    Remember one thing, guys:

    Per LAW, after 45 days, Oregon state must start paying you interest on your refunds. I have almost $3,100 in returns that are owed to me. The longer the department drags their feet, the richer I become. The ball is literally in their court.

    #4149625 Reply

    So I went ahead and made an account with the Oregon revenue online. Found out they offset my refund to an agency that I do not owe any money to. My fiance wmr still says in manual review but when you log in it says it’s been on time processed. I am so confused on why this is happening. It funny how mine was manually reviewed in 11 days since they offset it but it’s been 4 weeks and my fiance’s hasn’t budged. I’m really thinking its time to call some lawyers.

    #4149624 Reply

    I did my taxes electronically on 2-14-2016. I received my federal refund right away. When I dint get my state shortly after I looked it up on the Oregon tax refund website and it said I was in manual review and it would take at least 10 weeks. I went to H&R Block which did my taxes and they said its been happening to a lot of people this year and it could take as long as a year to get my refund. This really ticks me off considering I have a lot of taxes taken out of my check so that I always get a refund. I sent a email to the state off of their website but haven’t received a response yet. I really don’t expect too. All their doing is holding on to MY money as long as they can. Well I have the cure for that. Im going to change my status on my deductions at work so that I get the minimum taken out of my check for taxes and then at the end of the year I will owe them. Then when I do my taxes I will file for a extension and wait till the last possible moment before I send them in. I bet if everyone did this the bullcrap would stop.

    #4149621 Reply

    I am in the same boat, Michelle. Went from manual to 3-4 weeks on March 11th. Still no refund. I had a standard return submitted in early February that went to manual review within a week. I will keep you updated on my end.

    #4149619 Reply

    From what I have heard once you complete the identity quiz it should start processing within 48 hours and then it’s then it’s the regular wait time. It’s a little ridiculous people have to wait 8 weeks for a letter to verify identity.

    #4149614 Reply

    I finally got a letter in the mail today to verify my ID… It took them almost 8 weeks to send me a letter, I’m so pissed to say the least. No major changes for the past several years, so no reasons really to be put under manual review. Was it 45+ days where I’m owe interest? Better!

    #4149609 Reply

    I filed a simple cut and dry return with a refund of $353.00. I e-filed, and just like above went into Manual Review. I finally called the Oregon Department of revenue and demanded a reason, I got the run around, all the usual excuses, “there are many reasons it goes into revue,” “Until the files is finished being reviewed we don’t know the reason,” So I challenged that it is an over-payment, and that the Oregon department of revenue has no right to hang on to funds that do not belong to them. Then I reiterated the question, “why is the refund under review?” “why haven’t I received a letter asking for anything additional” What is the department of revenue doing with MY money?” All this in a calm diplomatic tone. The Operator then said exactly these words. “I have to end this call at this time” and hung up. Real shady.

    I filed February 7th received my federal 7 days later and Oregons been in manual review nothing different so it must be the kicker and Oregon sucks sorry but they take and take and never give.

    Does anyone have an Update????
    I don’t really have an update. Fiancé s wmr still says its in manual review. He efiled with h&r February 15th. I efiled through the states free website February 28th and it was kicked into manual review immediately. March 12 it changed back to the regular 3-4 week processing message and has not changed since. I still have not received a deposit. I spoke with someone on the phone today again and they said they can’t tell me when it’s going to be done processing and as for other manual reviews she cannot elaborate on why it’s taking so long. I just don’t understand what they are processing… Isn’t the manual review supposed to take care of all that work… Has anyone gotten their refund back yet?

    #4149536 Reply

    My fiancé claimed head of household with 2 dependent and a kicker and his is still sitting in manual review. (Filed through h&r block). I filed through the states free efile as single with one dependent. I also claimed $0 on my kicker even though I was due $157 back. Everyone that I know that didn’t claim a kicker has already gotten their refund so I’m guessing that’s why mine didn’t take that long to manually review.

    #4149534 Reply


    What was your filing status & did you claim any dependents? I’m still waiting for my refund that has been sitting in manual review since late January. But I don’t know when the ORS make their deposits..

    #4149495 Reply

    So checked wmr and my fiancés still says manual review but mine changed back to the 3-4 well message. Still haven’t received a deposit.. Crossing my fingers… Anyone else have an update. And does anyone know what day Oregon does refund deposits?

    #4149387 Reply

    So my Fiances State was accepted 2/15 where is sat there for a week before changing to manual review. Still no update and he hasn’t received any information as to why. He claimed head of household with 2 dep. I submitted my Oregon state 2/28 and it was accepted the same day. The very next day it was kicked into manual review. I called to see why it was automatically sent to review and all they could tell me is that the system is sending almost anyone who claimed a child or head of household into manual review and that as long as there are no errors I should expects to see my refund within a few weeks. They did state however that if they need to change or verify anything that refunds could take more than 10 weeks!

    I used Turbo Tax and my state return is in manual review. Federal return took about a week. It’s been over a month and haven’t received anything in the mail or on the phone. My return is $400, filed single, one job, & no dependents.

    I filed mine on January 12th and both state and federal were accepted the following afternoon. I got the federal return back by January 29th but I am STILL waiting on my state return. The odd thing is the “Where’s my refund” website for Oregon says they have yet to get a return with my info….

    #4145514 Reply

    I filed both my Federal and my state FEB 4th through H & R Block. I got my Federal back in about 7-10 days. I am in the service and have filed the same way for the past 13 years with Oregon, while waits have generally been a week or two longer then Federal I have never been placed in manual review before. This is absolutely unacceptable….. I plan to write them in the next 48 hours and express my disdain for this garbage. I also plan to follow suite as another commented earlier and write my Oregon Senator requesting an investigation into the Oregon Internal Revenue Service.

    #4145498 Reply

    Yesterday, my return status on the DOR website said, “manual review”. This morning, 3/5/16 the status says, “ontime processed”. I filed jointly with my wife through Turbo Tax and opted to receive my refund on the NetSpend Visa. I received the card yesterday and had to add my spouse to the account in order to allow the deposit of the refund from the state. I haven’t received the funds yet, but I’ll update this post when I do.

    I’m currently working over in Afghanistan right now for the United States, and am a combat veteran registered with disability in the United States. I spent more than 340 days in Afghanistan this last year (2015), and due to that I was able to claim a much lower rate of taxation. I’m ENTITLED LEGALLY to a pretty large return this year, because instead of doing the extra paperwork, I over-payed taxes all year to the state of Oregon because I knew I’d get it back. I really don’t ask for much, but this is unacceptable. I my return was submitted/accepted on January 26th this year, and has been under “manual review” since two days after that. I’ve consulted with my two tax agents, as well as two very knowledgable tax attorneys, and have been informed I’ve got the right to a interest balance accrued by them sitting on my refund. The more residents that do this, the more hope we have of ODR getting their act together. There is nothing fishy about my return, I’ve gone as far as to CALL ODR, sit on hold for 45 minutes, and volunteer to resend all of my tax information for the year to possibly add some clarity to any possible questions they may have, and was told “that won’t do anything.” This is absolutely unacceptable. I’m working on closing on a house with my newly-engaged fiance, and we’ve done all the work together while I’ve been overseas in Afghanistan. For THIS to be the problem and ultimate deciding factor if we can get this house…is really upsetting.

    I filed on Feb 9th 2016, got my Federal return on the 25th, but my Oregon return is under manual review. I filed thru an agent and he says it may take up to 10 weeks under manual review.

    now I’m just waiting.

    #4145231 Reply

    Filed 2/29 could see it as Manual Review on 3/1 and 3/2, but today it just says processing and to give it 3/4 weeks. Maybe I’ll get the refund in a week or so like others that are not in review – anything is better than 10 weeks.

    #4145184 Reply

    I filed head of household, no day care expenses. I am also under manual review.

    Live in WA but work in OR, filed my federal & state returns via Jackson Hewlett on 2/3. Fed return arrived super fast (took about a week) but still waiting on the state return. Checked the status online and discovered that the state return is “under manual review”. This is a first; no notice from Oregon, no changes, no issues with prior returns and the amount is just over 1K. I’m scratching my head on this one… I don’t understand why or how this happened.

    My return just went into manual review for the third year in a row. The first year, I emailed them and told them I expected them to pay interest on my return and they paid it within a week after that. Last year, they waited until the very last day before they would have to pay interest to send my refund. This year, I emailed them and told them I would be consulting with a tax attorney as it seems they have repeatedly targeted me for no apparent reason. I’ve increased my allowances on my W4 so that I will owe money next year – I’m tired of the State sitting on money they have no legal right to year after year. Total incompetence in government.

    I’m a legal resident of Oregon, but I’ve been in the military for 17 years now. I’m single, no kids, and I get everything back that I pay into Oregon, each year. It’s very cut and dry, and it never changes. This year, I’ve also been flagged for “manual review”, of which I’m not buying (literally). Something is wrong here, and the state department has some explaining to do. The department is acting like they’re completely broke and have no revenue to issue. I’ve seen other states do this when they mismanage their residents’ money and are then forced to sit on their refunds for as long as possible, in hopes of accruing additional interest. If I’m not mistaken, that’s why I PAY taxes, in the first place. If they can’t get it right the first time, then I will stop doing them this favor in the future; I am not required to pay, in the first place. If they’re not going to give my money back, then they will stop receiving it. I’ve given them two weeks to come clean, and then I’m sending a letter to Sen. Ron Wyden, asking for an internal investigation into the department. Like I said, this is the first time this has happened to me in 17 years. Something definitely smells here, and it reeks of tax fraud.

    #4144975 Reply

    This is the first year I’ve been put under manual review & it sucks! I’m suppose to get a little over 1k back but who knows when they’ll get to reviewing it. I filed & was accepted on 1/21, it went into manual review shortly after… So a little over a month now & no notices in the mail to date.

    #4144965 Reply

    I’m not disagreeing with you, gitsy, but my son earned less than 2k and is a first time filer (no kicker). His refund is 74$ and he was put in review 2 days after he filed.

    #4144954 Reply

    Update 3/1:

    I just got off the phone with ODR. The gal I spoke to said they’re having an issue with the checks and balances this year due to the kicker refund. Said usually it’s less than 10% of population that gets reviewed but due to the kicker (and IMO, their 2.1m mistake a few years back), something like 70% of filers are getting reviewed. It’s just to make sure the kicker amount is correct.

    #4144835 Reply

    gee i won the oregon bs lotto for manual review, and apparently it requires 70 days to double check h&r blocks work. i literally had two w2s for paper work, i file single, no dependents, no write offs… it’s scary that a return that straight forward can confuse the unreachable oregon “tax masters,” my refund of $156 shouldn’t be out of the states ability to cover. especially given that they had “extra money” floating around to use towards kicker checks. if they are going to hold our refunds 2 months longer than they should i want the real reasons why, and i want to know exactly what the review process entails.

    Filed with Jackson hewitt Jan 26. Relieved federal. Oregon says today under manual review. Are they so incompetent that they need to do this, or are they broke and waiting for funds? Sounds like they were greedy and ran out of money. Super angry right now!

    Ok the state owes me $320 it was a really simple return. I am single only have 1 job. Filed on 2/7, got my federal refund a week later. I check the states refund website and I got “manual review” may take 10 weeks. This is the first time a manual review has happened and there is nothing wrong with the return, used TurboTax to file.

    When you try calling them you can’t get a real person cause their telephone system just disconnects you after saying they have a high volume of calls and to try again later, but this happens every time.

    Yet another return in manual review. Filed Jan 30 and it was “processing” for a few weeks. Checked it today (Feb 29) and, violà-it’s in manual review. Refund is for under $300 and filed through TurboTax… So frustrating dealing with this.

    #4144593 Reply

    Mine was instantly put into manual review (10 weeks), soon as the state received it. I filed through TurboTax, 2/26. TT customer care says there’s no reason for Oregon to have any delays – and apparently you can’t get anyone on the phone at the state on the weekends.

    This is happening to so many people, does anyone have any good news? Anyone receive the “manual review” and get their Oregon refund already?

    I too am under manual review. .. this article best explains what is going on…several things including enhanced fraud protection..
    After reading this and talking to a co worker about it today, apparently last year there was a big flux of fraudsters using electronic filing with social security number generators creating a huge amount of loss and fraud against the state.
    My status now tells me it could be up to 10 weeks from filling to receive my refund. …because of the manual review.
    I also used TT and requested DD of funds.
    Hope this helps.

    Ours goes into manual review every year. First time, we were owed $626 back, and the next year $104. Another year, about $4k, and this year, about $3k. Once you’ve tossed into manual, expect it to happen every year. It sucks. We consider getting our state refund to be a pleasant surprise at this point. The state is too broke to pay what’s owed, and won’t look to other ways to get revenue.

    I got manual review today too 2-25, I hope it is not going to be drama. maybe it goes through that step before payment? anyone know?

    We filed our return with H&R block on February 2nd. Both state and federal were accepted on the 2nd. My federal refund processed in 10 days. We recieved our Federal return on the 12th. I have checked my state refund status every day, and todat it says It is under manual review just like most of your returns. We have never had any problems recieving our refund in the past and we had health insurance all year. I have tried calling and the automated system hangs up on me. Doesn’t even put me on hold. I emailed the Department of Revenue requesting information in the form of a human voice instead of waiting forever for them to send me some letter or not, who knows… loads of bullshit if you ask me.

    I filed on Jan 26th, and it’s still under manual review. It’s really ticking me off, they are eager to take it but not give whats rightfully mine back. I filed with Turbo Tax too, I wonder how long before I get my refund. And I put for direct deposit, so it’s faster. NOT…

    #4143854 Reply

    Filed 2/16…no changes from the last 10 years and checked this morning and return status changed to manual review this am. Last night it was still processing with 3-4 week message. My son, who filed 2/22 and is a teenager with a simple return and a 74 dollar refund was also put in manual review this morning. I received my fed refund on the 24th. Both filed thru TT.
    I think they must have some major computer problems as it seems a lot of people went into review this am.

I have received no letters or calls or anything. I have a straight forward simple situation. TODAY. MANUAL REVIEW. Says to wait 10 weeks from acceptance (1/20) It must be some bullshit to buy time. So corrupt.

    Filed 2/16…no changes from last year and checked this morning and return status changed to manual review this am. Last night it was still processing with 3-4 week message. My son, who filed 2/22 and is a teenager with a simple return and a 74 dollar refund was also put in manual review this morning. I received my fed refund on the 24th. Both filed thru TT.
