How do I track my West Virginia tax refund?

by Intuit Updated 6 months ago

Visit the West Virginia State Tax Department to track your refund. You'll have to enter the exact amount of your expected refund in whole dollars. You can find this by signing in to TurboTax.

Typical refund timeframes for correctly filed returns

  • E-filed returns may take as long as 7–8 weeks after the acknowledgement is received from the state.
  • Paper returns may take as long as 10–11 weeks after the return is received by the West Virginia Tax Division.

Refund Exceptions

  • First-time filers should allow about 3 additional weeks to the timelines above.
  • Requests for more information will delay refunds until the requested information is received. Allow approximately 6 weeks from the receipt of the requested information to review and complete the processing of the return.
  • Refund timeframes are general and don't apply to every refund. It's best not to depend on getting a refund by a certain date, especially when making purchases or paying bills.
  • Some refunds may ultimately be reduced or result in a balance of tax due depending on the supporting information supplied or on record with the West Virginia State Tax Department.
  • While many refunds will be paid in a shorter time frame, it is not abnormal to wait a significant time period if, for any reason, the return requires additional review.

Per The West Virginia Tax Division, The West Virginia Tax Division continues to respond to an increased risk of fraudulent filings and is implementing enhanced security measures for your protection. As a result, expect a significant delay of your tax refund. You should only call concerning your refund if it has been more than 10 weeks since filing your return.

As much as we'd like to help, TurboTax doesn't distribute refunds. Only the IRS or your state tax agency do.
