    So i emailed asking about deposit times and got this back….

    Refunds are processed throughout the week.  You will actually receive the deposit before the Department will be given the date it was deposited. It can be deposited at any point within 3-4 weeks from 02/08/2018.

    I filed on 1/29 and was accepted on 1/30. I just checked the online system and it just says the received my refund request. So I called them a little bit ago and spoke to a woman and she says that it is still being processed and something about an “adjustment on line 1”, I asked what that means and she didn’t know. She said to call back next week if nothing changes on their website. It’s always when you really need the money that this kinda of stuff happens.

    Mine updated today as well to the same msg. I’m glad I called when did about it. Hopefully the refunds will be here’s soon

    #4219009 Reply

    My online updated showing my adjustment and new refund amount but no deposit date. So I called and was told my refund is approved and may take another 3-4 weeks to be deposited. She did also mention it could be sooner, but that is the time frame they provide people.

    Does it have a deposit date?

    #4218801 Reply

    i just checked pa and this am was the generic message and i checked just now said it will be deposited so they are doing something and i just filed on 2/6

    #4217516 Reply

    Mine said 8 to 10 weeks for 2 days, then updated last Thursday to 4 to 6 weeks for a deposit. I called just for giggles and it was approved she explained it could take up to 3 weeks to receive the refund

    #4217470 Reply

    @mark yes mine updated to the same to the same message today. I had to call earlier this week about my refund and it was lost in the que. they didn’t show any notices or anything on my account so hopefully it’ll update again soon

    Why does my state pa refund say 8 to 10 weeks to update account and have refund by then. No way it should take another 8weeks to go thru. Anyone else get the 8 to 10 weeks on pa state??

    #4215219 Reply

    My PA return was accepted on Jan. 23rd…I’m still on the 4-6 week message also.

    Mine updated to 4 to 6 week deposit message last thursday… hoping it happens this week

    #4214747 Reply

    I filed 1/24…went under a routine review a few days later..last Tuesday it updated to processing my return…Wednesday it updated to I owe a $10.00 offset but my refund was approved minus the offset…it went on to say 4 to 6 weeks…but my refund was in my account this morning. So yes it updated more than once a week and once you get that 4-6 week message it’s coming very soon after that!

    What is the number to call to get an actual person?

    #4214249 Reply

    @jarrod well your response scared me enough to call lol luckily no bad news she’s said it some how got missed in the que so she put a ticket in so it can be reviewed this week. I’m thankful of no I’d verification or anything at least yet so hopefully I’ll at least update online. She did say they were working on returns received the 29th if that helps anyone else out

    #4214053 Reply

    @liv last year they did not mail a letter until 2/23 and I was accepted at the end of Jan and placed in a review at the same time. I called their 717 number and spoke to an agent who informed me what I was going to need to mail back and I did so before receiving the notice

    #4213921 Reply

    Mine was accepted 1/22 and still on awaiting routine review so who knows? And I still can’t see anything online only when I call. I would think if I was under review I would’ve got something from them by now

    The review takes a while. Last year i was accepted jan.24th got hit with a review and did not recieve my refund until april 23rd

    #4213780 Reply

    Someone just posted from PA (on IGMR FB) that their state (PA) tax was deposited, they filed 1/26. Anyone else? I was accepted 1/26 also but still nothing from state yet. When I call I get the “…awaiting review…” generic message.

    #4213536 Reply

    I think last year mine took about a week or so after I updated to that. Fingers crossed for you!

    I updated twice this week

    #4210437 Reply

    Yea it seems to be extra slow this year it says I was accepted 1/16 yet still being reviewed. Who knows maybe I’ll get lucky and get a deposit without the site updating. I looked back to last year and the site updated on a Sunday but it seems like Thursday’s this year?

    #4210111 Reply

    Today the PA WMR switched to read “Your refund in the amount of ***** was processed but not yet mailed/deposited. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for your refund to be received.” Progress!

    #4210057 Reply

    Filed on Jan 22nd still nothing so I called was told my refund was accepted on Jan 24th and they are behind on doing routine reviews mine would be looked at in a few days and to call back next week if nothing updates on website. Guess I’ll continue to wait 😒😒😒 Last year it only took 10 days after I filed smh

    Yes my status shows online and when i call

    #4209455 Reply

    Does your status show online? Online mine shows it was received but says there’s no info available on my return (refund amount shows though) but when I call the automated line it says it was received and going through routine review? The website looks a little diff this year as well.

    I went through the review last year, its quicker to call and see what they need. Otherwise they will snail mail the request once you get what they need back to them it takes about a month to see a ddd…..this year i got lucky

    #4208549 Reply

    Does anyone know what happens if you don’t file the “PA SCHEDULE UE
    Allowable Employee Business Expenses” form? Do they just hold your tax return?

    Mine states….”Your return was received and information is currently being updated to your account. Please allow 8 to 10 weeks from today to receive your refund. If you need additional information, please call 717-787-8201 and a representative will help you.”

    #4207537 Reply

    I filed on Jan 22 and still haven’t updated online but when I call in the automated system says I’m awaiting a routine review😒😒 last year I got my state back in 10 days not sure what’s going on this year.

    #4207414 Reply

    It will update stating “awaiting routine review,” just an fyi the site updates once a week. Everything about a pa state refund is long slow process.

    Filed federal and state on 1/19. Federal was accepted 1/20… PA return still hasn’t been accepted. I filed with taxact. This has never happened before. IDK what’s going on. I called taxact, they said my PA return is still awaiting acceptance, it may have been backlogged. Whatever that means smh

    #4179783 Reply

    Just to clarify that last post, my PA refund was in the bank today.

    #4179774 Reply

    Took a chance, called my bank, and my DD is in there! Not sure how that worked out on a Federal holiday but I’m not complaining.

    #4178781 Reply

    I just checked my netspend account for the 3rd time today and Nothing was in there.This is starting to get really old.

    #4177951 Reply

    Mine deposited last night, I was processed 2/6. But when I check where’s my pa refund it still shows allow 4-8 weeks.

    #4177736 Reply

    Still nothing from PA, but Federal WMR updated to show a DDD of 2/23!

    #4177685 Reply

    Pa website hasn’t updated for me it still says 4-6 weeks, but just checked my bank and its there!

    #4177260 Reply

    The state of pa website still saying wait 4-6 weeks, its pending in my account for Tuesday

    #4176207 Reply

    My bank doesn’t show pending amounts but I think mines is the 21st also. There are others that got their refunds and I noticed a pattern of 9-11 days after it was processed. I had actually thought the 21st before I read your post. Now you gave me hope!!!!!

    #4175663 Reply

    Littlesdpa, are you saying that PA’s WMR updated for you or that you checked your bank again after you got to work?? Just trying to be clear on where your good news came from! :)

    #4175284 Reply
