Direct Deposit was rejected, WMR says check was mailed 3/6/2018.. 21 days later still no check, but received letter on 3/24/18 dated 3/19/2018 that check was being mailed. Why was the DD rejection letter sent 13 days after my refund check was supposed to be mailed?Medadmin718

Has anyone been approved?Nikki
@Wellconeone – That same thing happened to me last year and I feel your pain :( The City of Richmond is quick to snatch your money for taxes but slow to use that money for the purpose intended (i.e. – road repairs, school funding, etc.). I can’t wait to move out of the city.Wellconeone
Well i said i would update y’all.
Even though I’m salty lol. I called the state of va taxation to check refund status. So my state taxes are processed but are being garnished for property taxes?!?! On my car. One car $725 yikes.
Going down to City billing today to approve them to take from state taxes.
So i can get my $60 refund from Richmond 😂😓🤬Wellconeone
Filed 1/29. Accepted 2/1. Processing on VA WMR on 2/2. Reads complete and processed on 2/2.
Waiting for them to open so i can call.
I read a lot of people’s not updating but calling and receiving DDD.
Will update when i find out more. :)Shaymommeee
@Nikki year before last I had mine set up for direct deposit but there was an offset and they took part of my refund and sent me a paper check for the remainder. I would call and check with them to see if that may have happened to yours.Nikki
Just got a letter in the mail today from VATAX requesting additional information before they will release my refund. Totally sucks but my refund is being held until potentially March after they receive a copy of my W-2 and a secondary form of I.D.JoshVA

im new to filing state taxes, i claim eitc. how does the path act affect state refunds?LCB
Filed and accepted 2/4. VA WMR says DD scheduled for 2/15.DIYMama540
Definitely register on the taxation website like others on here suggested. I didn’t get much information from the generic refund tracker but was able to get a little more information from registering and looking at my account history. Even though state accepted my return on 2/1 it wasn’t processed until 2/6. It updated this morning to say my refund was issued on 2/15. (Hopefully in my account sooner). Hope this helps! Happy taxing!Frustrated with the VA process
TO ALL INQUIRING WHY YOUR VA REFUND IS TAKING LONGER TO PROCESS. I was advised by a VA Tax Rep. that taxpayers who filed earlier than the VA start date will likely receive a letter requesting more information to process your return. Filing early prompts their system to ask for more information to insure a fraudulent return hasn’t been filed. If you filed AFTER their start date then you will likely receive your refund much quicker. BOTTOM LINE: If you filed your 2016 VA tax return earlier than the start date you may want to consider waiting until the season has officially started when filing your 2017 state tax return.Patiencenotmyvirtue
I filed on 01/28, accepted 02/02. Tax account says I was processed 02/08. Where’s my refund says still processing. Hoping maybe the money will pop up sometime next week.Jennifer
Excuse the typos.Jennifer
Heads up VA… My friend fri her taxes 1/31…and got her state TODAY although the Via taxation site gave her a status of still processing. So, periodically check your bank accounts..!SB
@ERw – that’s good news for you. I filed my Federal and (Virginia) State taxes on 1/26. My Federal was accepted within minutes and state was accepted 2 days later. The (Virginia) site didn’t update my return to processing until last weekend and it’s been stuck on processing since then. My federal refund was deposited yesterday. Hopefully we will have a DDD soon, too.Erw
I spoke with them yesterday as mine has had the processing memo for like a week. She told me that in their system I have a ddd of 2/13. The online system hasn’t shown anything yet other than processing:Sarah
Accepted Jan 26, finally recieved now processing msg on Sat morning. Just wondering if anyone else jas been there done that and a time frame from updating to processing . How long til DDD. I know fed will be after 15th. ThanksSarah
Va state accepted Jan 26, finally received an updated msg on Sat that it is now being processed. Any outlook on how long til DDD? I know federal will be after 15th. Just wondering if anyone has already been there done that and how long it took after the processing msg. Thanks!Mizz221@mizz221
I called and had an agent verify my refund has a dd of 2/13. Hopefully it will be there Saturday wirh5my netspend!!!
I just spoke to an agent also and she confirmed that they are mailing mine on 2/10 (as I had a small offset that I was unaware of lol). So FINALLY I know something!!! YAY!!James Jones
I spoke to an agent. She confirmed with me that I was processed on 2/3/17 and I have a refund date of 2/9/17.Shay37@shaymommeee
So…I did what Ms Chanel suggested and registered on the Va site. I was able to see the same thing and had a va return complete and processed on 2-3-16. I still didn’t get an update on the WMR so I decided to call just to make sure there were no offsets. I spoke with a rep and she was able to give me my ddd 2/14. So, evidently as long as you’re processed they have a ddd and WMR just isn’t updating. Welp, guess I’ll just wait until the 14th and see what happens. Just glad to know that everything went through ok.Vamove2FL
So my VA state just posted to my rush card! I had dd of 2/9 given by two over phone
Thank you for that update!!! I hope mine will update soon. I have not received any kind of letter from them YET! I filed my state on 1/20 and it was accepted on 1/26 and it just says that it is processing and to check back later. I checked the other website that was posted in here and it says my return was processed and completed on 2/3/17 but it does not say that the refund has been sent yet :(Vamove2FL
I give VA taxes on 1/13 it was accepted and processed on 1/19. Was sent letter of review on 1/30 faxed w2 and faxed on 1/31 (they received same day) called VA tax dept she says my refund is scheduled to go out this Thursday 2/9.
So for all those asking if VA state being held its not will update once I see it in my bank I have rushcard.
Also VA customer service advises if u have letter of review send in asap before the big rush and you’ll process faster!Ms Chanel@mschanel
Hey hey everyone! I just want to share some info for the fellow Virginia filers… So it took them (VA) forever to accept it, almost a week & then nothing.. You know – checking the va WMR.. Nothing online about this delay in acceptance which I know has nothing to do with the feds – this is the states crap! So I am aware of Virginia’s online dept of taxation lol.. It tells you your tax info for Virginia.. If you register you will see it all – down to the date your refund was processed.. I check it along with va WMR as they are 2 totally different systems.. It’s simple – I’ll detail so whoever wants it can at least get an understanding of where they stand with their VA refund..

There you will see the Year & Return Status & Refund Status.. Mine finally updated today – took longer this year.. It says – Your 2016 Individual Income Filing has been completed. Return processed on 02/03/2017.. So any day now for VA.. I filed VA 1/23 & they accepted 1/27.. Earlier today it was processing & late afternoon it was processed!
Hope it helps someone else – information is key! ✔💯😉
Found this on Virginia state returns this year:
“Timely and accurate processing of every return is a priority for the department. As refund fraud schemes grow more elaborate, we may need to take extra time to review returns. This means it will take longer to issue refunds to some taxpayers than it has in the past,” said Tax Commissioner Craig Burns. “To prevent refund fraud, we’re enlisting the help of tax professionals, employers, payroll providers, and taxpayers.”
I am thinking this means it will be delayed until after the federal is approved.Shaun
Debbie what happened with your return? I filed 2/6 and I kept getting a generic message until 2/25. That day it updated to processing and the next day to processed. I called today to check the status and was told there was an error on line 21 and that had been disallowed. The return is now being reviewed but rep could not tell me why and that a letter was sent. Automated system says refund reduced but no date or any other details.debbie
Did you ever get your refund? Mine continues to say processed no date and now they day they have sent a letter but its been two weeks and no letter.Anonymous
I filed and was accepted on Jan 31, 2015. It continues to say processing with daily email update alerts saying my status has changed. When I go check, nothing has changed on the status. This is the longest it has ever taken Virginia to process our return. I did file through TurboTax and I know there was some issues with TT state returns where they had to be retransmitted. Not sure but this may be the reason for the delay.Mason
Mine was pending in my account Saturday morning so i went out and did a little shopping with it!Ms.Edmonds
Mine says the same have you gotten an update?Mason
My VA tax refund was accepted on 2/02 (filed the 28th). The website just kept saying processing and I signed up to get email alerts (at the bottom of the website). In Feb 6th at 5am i got an email from it saying my status had changed. So I get on the website that afternoon to check and there was NO change, same old processing, etc. This morning (the 7th) I got another email saying my status had changed. Just logged on and it now says I’m processed and will get my refund deposited 2/10.phillipbianco@phillipbianco
I also just filed my VA state tax, let me know when DD is made. thanksAnonymous
My VA state return was accepted on the 4th (a little after midnight) and today when I used the state “where’s my refund” tool, it said: “Your return has been processed.”
Prior to this, it gave me no information at all.
When I access returns from previous years, it says the same statement at the top, but offers a DD date below.
I was also able to order a federal transcript today/see it online- as a side note.
I’m guessing this means it will be DD soon, I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this happened. In the past, I’ve forgotten to even check the VA tax website and simply been pleasantly surprised to see more money in my account.
