Hi, my car just started having this problem as well! The key will go all the way over, except into the position to remove it.
Let me guess, you have an automatic? Me too, You know the button you push in on the side of the shifter? To get it out of park and all? Well, that pushes down on a rod inside the shaft, and on mine, that shaft gets stuck pushed down. But you see, I replaced the shifter with a manual one, mounted on top of the moveable rod. So, I just have to pull up hard on the shifter, or the rod, and it comes up and the key comes out. You would have to remove your shifter in order to do this, since you can't get to the rod otherwise.
I broke my key in the ignition trying to get it out, so I'm glad I figured it out lol. Hope this helps!
