For everyone asking about the 8-12 weeks thing, I get that message every year and I always get my refund within a few weeks. Don’t worry!February 2, 2019 at 12:24 pm #4256310
The website is down until Sunday at 10:am – seems like a strange time to shut down the website on opening weekend.February 2, 2019 at 11:35 am #4256256

Hey, just a heads up if you used h&r block online: apparently they are having an issue and won’t even begin to file WI state returns until 2/5. I foolishly used them for the first time this year for my state return. I just cancelled it and went ahead and filed it directly through the state website. Hoping to get a quick refund.January 31, 2019 at 8:30 am #4254809
8-12 week message on 1/29/19

😁January 29, 2019 at 12:15 pm #4253916
I meant 8-12 weeks – same generic message as last year.January 29, 2019 at 9:32 am #4253817
The site/app are working today. Mine says
We have received your tax return and it is being processed.
If filed electronically, most refunds are issued in less than three weeks.
Filing a paper return could delay your refund. Our strong fraud and error safeguards could delay some returns up to 12 weeks.January 29, 2019 at 8:41 am #4253798
I efiled yesterday morning and today it says it is processing and in 6-8 weeks it will be done. What does yours say?January 28, 2019 at 11:16 pm #4253711
@stever awesome thank youJanuary 28, 2019 at 8:36 pm #4253683
@cindy I think it’s just too early. Maybe they’ll update the site tomorrow or soon. Refun123 is the way to do it though.January 28, 2019 at 8:24 pm #4253677
When can we check or taxes for wi. Still showing only up to 2017 not an option for 2018January 28, 2019 at 6:46 pm #4253653
@kimberly I got accepted today (Jan 28th around 2pm), I filed on the 10th or 11th. Not sure what’s going t happen this year.January 28, 2019 at 6:06 pm #4253630
Any issues with H & R Block saying WI DOR has not given them confirmation as of yet to accept WI returns? Just got off the live chat w/ HRBlock and they say I should wait 48 hours to return to my account to e-file my WI return, EVEN THOUGH, WI DOR site says they are accepting e-filed returns as of today. Not cool HRB, not cool!!!!!January 26, 2019 at 12:15 pm #4253112
Any action in Wisconsin yet?January 26, 2019 at 12:15 pm #4253110
Any action here yet?May 23, 2018 at 11:34 am #4247061
I got notification from my credit union this morning that the refund will be direct deposited tomorrow (5/24)May 22, 2018 at 3:19 pm #4247029
I got the same thing on Friday to allow 10 days to receive. Do you think it will still be after the 10th of June before they start issuing?May 22, 2018 at 11:44 am #4247021
I got the same thing on Friday afternoon. Now I guess it’s just a waiting game. I have end of school year field trips and a graduation to pay for, that money will definitely help out right now!May 18, 2018 at 11:55 am #4246888
Shelli, actually it will be sooner if you’ve already submitted the claim. Checking my status today returns the result:
We have received your rebate claim and processed it. Allow up to 10 days to receive your rebate.”May 17, 2018 at 10:00 am #4246856
Child tax credit: initially I had heard that it would be DD the beginning of August. Now I’m hearing DD may happen as soon as the week of June 10. Anybody know for sure? We claimed ours on 5/15, and it is currently pending.April 11, 2018 at 6:48 pm #4244317
filed thru Turbo tax on 3-15-18……received by wisconsin state on 3-19-18 and the filing status got accepted 3-20-18. however I called in and someone told me they didnt start fully processing it til the 24th!!
WTF Wisconsin, Im still waiting for it to say a direct deposit date other then PROCESSING!!
Anyone else have this issue around the same filing date??
Thanks in advanceApril 11, 2018 at 10:21 am #4244262
Hello; If the 123 site for Wisconsin State refund status says that my refund will be deposited by 4/19/2018, does that mean on the 19th? What days of the week are refunds deposited?April 2, 2018 at 12:16 pm #4243360
so thanks wisconsin for taking out 683.70 out of my state refund just awesome ……March 31, 2018 at 11:20 am #4243200
8 weeks later and I received a letter :(March 30, 2018 at 8:19 am #4243006
refund was deposited in my account last night after 8 weeks. all is there and accounted for, no issuesMarch 29, 2018 at 9:44 am #4242897
Got my return and it’s $450 less than it was supposed to be. I had no offsets and received no letter or notifications if adjustments. Thanks Wisconsin!March 28, 2018 at 11:58 pm #4242854
@tree6’8” I thought FOR SURE I was about to get audited as a few here state they did. My best guess was if that was gonna happen you would have received something in the mail by now. It’s just taking a tremendously long time.March 28, 2018 at 2:21 pm #4242785
@Jwojo i filed mines and accepted 2/05/2018 but stuck on 8-12 week message do you think mines will update soon?March 27, 2018 at 1:23 pm #4242583
Finally, 7 weeks to the day after being accepted, received a DDD for 4/1March 27, 2018 at 6:08 am #4242531
I was asked for a long list of proof about my kids also. Certified birth certificates, drs records, a notarized letter from my landlord… Ridiculous. I filed February 4th. Got accepted around February 15th. Got a letter 2 weeks after that asking for all that other info. I sent it off right away. 2 weeks ago they sent the birth certificates back, but I still have no refund and no other information. So frustrating.March 26, 2018 at 10:03 am #4242379
I am waiting to hear back from Wis DOR. I filed in 2017 and they said I wasn’t here long enough and cut my refund from $800 to $134. this year I filed and they asked for Dr Records to prove I have my kids with me. well I don’t have that because we went to the dr before I moved them to Wisconsin .I called and they told me I have no letters pending, then a week later BOOM! a letter!!!!!!! I have my lease and papers from Food share for the children. I sent in what I have. They said I didn’t include 2 w2’s from 2 other jobs. but because I moved I couldn’t get them. I told them I have filed with h and r block for 21 years and I have all 21 filings. they said no… So I still haven’t heard anything I filed 1/22/2018 they sent a letter 3/1/2018. its 3/26/2018 still nothing. I called and they told me what the stooped system said online. Im so irritated with this…March 24, 2018 at 2:16 pm #4242181
Here we are almost 7 weeks out and still nothing. I called at week 4 and they said there were no letters. Still nothing in the mail. But how is it possible that I’m not under review or audit if it’s taking this long. It would be nice if the department of revenue actually updated instead of making you wait forever to hear anything.March 20, 2018 at 6:01 pm #4241293
@jessie I called today I’m at 6 weeks since getting accepted and was told a letter went out Friday. So annoying that they took this long. I feel your frustrationMarch 20, 2018 at 4:12 pm #4241272
Any idea when there will be a update again. Filed accepted 2/4 still nothingMarch 15, 2018 at 6:40 pm #4240109
Jessie J Larson
Well I filed 1/31 and just today got my letter of review. The amount of stuff they want Is just absolutely ridiculous. School records, birth certificates, letter from the clinics, a list of over 10 different things to send in. I owed the state last year and they sure garnished my check for the 113.00 I owed. Now they owe me 20 times that and I have to pull rabbits outta my hat.
F Wisconsin.March 14, 2018 at 10:45 pm #4239835
Still nothing here. 2/6March 14, 2018 at 1:20 am #4239505
Same filed accepted 2/4 still nothingMarch 13, 2018 at 5:50 pm #4239438
Still nothing. Filed and accepted 1/31. I am so over this!!March 10, 2018 at 11:39 am #4238467
@ JJ: I think Wisconsin updates at midnight and I am not sure if they update over the weekend as the Department of Revenue is closed. Hang in there. I filed on the 29th and just got approved on Friday. Hopefully next week will be your week!! :)
I looks like a bunch of people who filed prior to the 31st were just recently processed. This may have to do with your employer submitting your wage information to them. They have to submit the wage information by the 31st of January. So if they were late or only submitted on the 31st, your return may have been just pushed back until they verify wages. If you haven’t received any letters, it is coming, just coming slower than usual.March 10, 2018 at 1:20 am #4238337
Do you know what time you guys updated?? Filed and accepted on 1/31 and still on 8-12 weeks. I was really hoping tonight I would update at midnight! Do they update sporadically?March 9, 2018 at 2:41 pm #4238147
Filed through tt accepted 2/5 still says 8-12 weeks. Called again today and she said no letters have been sent and they are still processing my return 😠😠😠. I don’t get what is taking so longMarch 9, 2018 at 11:27 am #4238029
Got notice this morning – DDD next Friday. Looks like they are catching up to those who filed in January. Good luck everyone!March 9, 2018 at 10:04 am #4237966
Finally!! My return has been processed! DDD of 3/16! Wisconsin is being very careful to protect everyone’s identity and refund this year.March 9, 2018 at 9:21 am #4237913
Filed and accepted 1/30
Today got a DDD of 03/16March 9, 2018 at 8:54 am #4237878
Woke up with a ddd of 3/14 – Hoping for good news for all the rest of us that filed back in January.March 9, 2018 at 7:07 am #4237792
Ding ding ding. Ddd of 3/16. Accepted Jan 29.March 8, 2018 at 11:17 am #4237431
@danielle1526 – Filed electronically through TT – Was accepted 1/29 and still have the 8-12wk message. Was also told the same thing.. That is still being processed. Never received anything that would indicate any problems ect. I wonder if it has anything to do with EIC or Child tax credit.March 8, 2018 at 7:04 am #4237243
Filed three sets of taxes on 1/29. All fed recd by 2/14. one state got on 2/6. Notification this morning getting one on 3/15. One more to go. I hate this process. I called and just says processing. Have received no paperwork. Normally get state within a week of filing.March 7, 2018 at 2:16 pm #4236939
Is anyone who file on 1/29/2018 still waiting to be approved. My tax return is still processing and WDR said everything looks fine and to give it another couple weeks. Nothing has changed on my return. What is taking so long….March 7, 2018 at 3:39 am #4236604
Accepted on 1/29. Just checked right now and I received a DDD of 3/14. Finally. Keeping my fingers crossed for the rest of you :)March 6, 2018 at 3:48 pm #4236412
Alex, same here. It’s ridiculous. I’m really getting ticked off. I need that money desperately.March 6, 2018 at 2:31 pm #4236373
so note to everyone if you have to submit for a ID verification check then your refund wont start processing until the day you complete your verification. jusyt saying thats what i was told when i called earlier….March 6, 2018 at 1:44 pm #4236352
Does anyone know how often the system is updated? I’m sick of waiting for this shit. Filed and accepted in January, got my federal weeks ago. Tried calling and they said nothing is wrong and that is processing. I’ve received nothing in the mail.March 6, 2018 at 10:10 am #4236187
Filed on 1/30 and accepted. Federal received on2/22 and this morning I received a DDD from State of Wisconsin for 3/9. It’s about time. Good Luck everyone.March 5, 2018 at 11:01 pm #4235937
Fiancé filed 15 minutes before I did with TT and she received hers within 2 weeks (before Fed).
This is pure BS! 8-12 week message like most. I don’t necessarily “need” the money, it’s the principle. At this point I wouldn’t have a problem waiting if the status was clearly communicated.
I understand they’re utilizing a 3rd party to audit returns; something has to be going wrong. This sounds oddly familiar, similar to how employers hire 3rd party auditors for benefits – “Hey we can save you X millions of dollars in fraud with no impact to the tax payer, just pay us X millions of dollars.” – total lies. I work in IT and I get the ID theft part but someone’s head needs to roll for this SNAFU.March 5, 2018 at 8:35 pm #4235884
Filed 1/30 and accepted. Federal received 2/22. Wisconsin still saying 8-12 weeks. I called last week and no letters. Don’t know what’s going on.March 5, 2018 at 3:31 pm #4235720
Filed 1/29, accepted 1/30. Already received fed. Going on 5 weeks waiting for WI. This is ridiculous.March 5, 2018 at 2:10 pm #4235671
Still waiting 5 weeks tomorrow. Filed and Accepted 1//31 Spoke with someone last week and it’s starting to get noticed, but we’ll see.March 5, 2018 at 12:01 pm #4235545
Filled and accepted 02/02, still has 8-12 week message… called and no delays noted just “still processing” which I’m getting a little irked with hearing over and over again. Everyone else I know has gotten theirs back and some filed after I did.
