    I filed my taxes at the end of January. The day that Wisconsin stated they would “accept” a tax return. I am not getting back what I normally get back, although I paid more in, am a single mom and supporting three kids. I pay a lot in property taxes for my small home, sick of all these taxes both Federal and state…. I have lived in the same home for 13 years, my job is the same as last year, nothing has changed. I am still waiting, it is now 3/17. I need the money pretty bad, and here the state sits with it. I am pretty pissed.

    I called the offset line so that I could speak to a live person and he basically said they can’t tell anyone anything. I filed 1/29. He said that they have until the end of April to get me a refund… Absoluteky absurd.

    Literally the same old story every year from Wisconsin for me! 8-12 weeks to get my return back!

    This is my money that could be working for me in the bank rather than the state! Why should the state earn more interest off of us? They do that already all year long! Not to mention the already insane amount I paid that they are keeping!

    Filed and accepted on 1/29 still nothing what I was told yesterday at the Madison number was some employers did not file their deductions on time and for them To process those returns they had to have them because claimed income and deductions had to match and the guy said he was told march 1st there would be a big update to the late employers . Annoying because I am sure they filed shortly after I did but they just been sitting since.

    #4294499 Reply


    @ Lisa Sue – What happened to you also happened to me. That’s why I encourage everyone to call tax intercept department and confirm there are no letters being mailed for intercept or if there are any changes being mailed. What happens and in your case what most likely happened is that the DOR made changes to your tax return. Then they mail the letter after you receive a refund or direct deposit. It’s very frustrating. Mine was almost $550 less and since I was counting on this money (I know I shouldn’t) but hey I’m not rich, living paycheck to paycheck – it really hurt me as I had that money going to bills and fixing my car.

    WI Tax app shows DDD of by 2/24, today (2/22) I received my refund and it’s $780 less than the amount TurboTax calculated. 😳 I don’t owe anything that would cause an offset. WI Dept of Revenue is tremendously frustrating.

    #4291876 Reply


    @me – No. But just remember mine was not an interception as I thought, they claimed that I wrote a wrong number down under medical so they corrected my tax filing. So a letter was sent this morning notifying me of that but the interception department has access to those type of letters. When I called the main number they told me everything was fine and no letters were sent and even confirmed my refund which is unreal. You would think the entire DOR would have access to the same computer system.

    #4291597 Reply


    Called today. No letter generated. Accepted 1/28. She said they are in the process of changing the 3 weeks on the website because that is inaccurate. She said please allow up to 12 weeks. Nothing wrong with my return so far, just still processing.

    #4291397 Reply



    When you checked your status on the WMR site did it say anything about an interception?

    #4291241 Reply


    Please see my post below. I would encourage all of you that are still waiting to call the intercept department. Again, I was in the processing stage for almost 3 weeks and I called and they would say “No letters were sent, nothing is wrong – it’s just taking awhile” Well that was incorrect because if it’s taking a while then they are verifying your information and it is a good possibility that changes are being made on your return by the IRS. So I was supposed to receive a refund on Saturday, but I received it today and it was a lot less than I was supposed to get back. I didn’t know why, called the lady they said everything is fine, no letters sent. I called INTERCEPT division at WI IRS and sure enough, they had sent me a letter this morning that they changed my tax return and it resulted in a lower refund. Only the intercept division would know this – the other departments do not know this so please call tax intercept.

    Ok here’s an update: I filed on 2/2 and it was accepted the same day. I filed through H&R Block by myself via their website. It’s almost approaching 3 weeks, actually this Saturday will be the official third week. Every day I check it’s still in the processing stage saying 8 to 12 weeks. I finally called today to see if any letters were sent out and the lady that responded said no letters were sent out and all she can see is that it’s still processing. She said they have to verify everyone and make sure everything’s correct so it can take up to 12 weeks, although she said she don’t think it will take 12 weeks. She said just keep waiting and be patient and you’ll get it soon…..Great… I kind of wanted an actual definitive answer on when I will get it but of course they can’t give you that. I usually always get it within a week-week and a half. This is been the longest wait time I’ve ever had to deal with for Wisconsin. Gosh! This is so freaking annoying. I got kids and don’t exactly make a lot of money so I’m relying on this and need it now!

    #4290877 Reply


    This just might be the worst state tax filing season ever.. I filed 2/4 was accepted by Wisconsin same night via turbotax. Sent an email to the Wisconsin DOR last week asking what is going on, and received the same information everyone else is and they just said they received my return on 2/4 and it is in process, and to please allow up to 12 weeks. Unbelievable.. why can’t we have full access to where our money is 24/7? People shouldnt be left in the dark with questions on the little money we get back from Uncle Sam’s big pockets we contribute too everyday..

    #4290038 Reply


    Please look at my latest post below. I called the intercept phone number for WI. I told her that I received my refund direct deposited and it was $557 less than what I expected. She said Oh, we mailed you a letter the morning of 2/21. I said, well that’s today so I wouldn’t have received that yet, lol. She was like oh yeah. I asked for the LETTER ID # so I could access the letter on the WI DOR website. I just printed my letter and it says that the WI DOR made some changes on my return.

    Line 11 – We changed the WI subtraction modification for Medical Care.
    Line 15 – We changed the standard deduction allowed based on your filing status and income
    Line 19 – We changed your gross tax based on taxable income and filing status.

    So with those changes, my refund is $557 less. I’m not understanding this so I will now have to look into this. I file the same way EVERY year, have 5 dependents and it’s been correct every year so I don’t know what’s going on.

    So….for those that are still waiting with no DOR date, please call DOR and see if you owe anything or if they are making changes to your tax return. The number I called was 608-266-7879. If they did mail you a letter – have them give you the LETTER ID# so you can access https://tap.revenue.wi.gov/printletter/_/

    Thanks for reading.

    So I was accepted on 1/28 and was approaching 3 weeks before I received my refund date. It was supposed to be deposited on Saturday but I woke up to my deposit being deposited today although it was around $600 less than it was supposed to be. So now I’m thinking is this why my DD date took so long. I received no letter about the tax intercept and when I called they said the agents can’t tell if the tax is being intercepted. I don’t owe child support, no back taxes so I’m confused about what happened. The only thing I can think about was that I was sued in court for a bill that was around $600. Problem is they already started garnishing my paycheck so last Friday they took $368 out of my paycheck and if tax took the entire amount then I’m due money because I’ve overpaid.

    So, I just want to say even if you don’t think you owe money please give the tax intercept department a call. This has me thinking that’s why my DD date took so long. Again I received no letter (I have the program that shows me what I’m being delivered each day and nothing from IRS). Also if your husband owes (maybe it’s not you) and you file joint then they will intercept if his name was on your tax return. Same if you have a child and they owed something for juvenile court. I will be calling the tax intercept phone number today and I’ll report back.
