How long does it take for my return to be processed after I pass the Identity Confirmation Quiz?

Once you pass the quiz, it can take the Michigan Department of Treasury up to 4 weeks to complete the verification process.

You may check the status of your return using eServices

There are two options to access your account information. Account Services or Guest Services

      1. If you use Account Services, select “My Return Status” once you have logged in.

          Note: When you create a MILogin account, you are only required to answer the verification questions one time 
          for
each tax year. If you have previously established a MILogin account you may use the same username and
          password for multiple state agency access. (Treasury, Secretary of State, Unemployment/UIA)
                 
       2. If you use Guest Services, select “Where’s My Refund” and you will be asked to enter the following information 
           for security reasons:

  • Primary filer’s Social Security number
  • Primary filer’s last name
  • Tax year
  • Filing status
  • Adjusted Gross Income(AGI)/Total Household Resources (THR)
    • If your AGI is a negative number, enter "-" after the number. Example: 1045-
                               

Note: If you are unable to authenticate using your current tax year information, select the previous tax year for authentication. When you submit your question, explain that you selected a previous tax year for authentication. Include the AGI/THR and tax
year for which you are inquiring.
