    My refund was received but they said they needed W2’s sent. They were sent and received on April 12th. Still not refund as of today July 11th. This is very very unfair. I call and sit on hold for at least and hour every time and then they are just mean to me saying they are currently reviewing documents that came in March and will get to mine eventually. Nothing I can do…they have my money hostage



    I filed late in the tax season, but both my federal and state refunds were accepted March 14th. I recieved my federal a long time ago, but I have heard nothing from GA. When I checked online, it stated my return had been recieved and is currently being processed, allow 30-45 days and blah blah blah. Well, yesterday was the 45th day since my return had been accepted. Where the $#!% is my refund? I will be calling today (day #46) and complaining about why I have heard nothing from the GTC/GA DOR about my refund and why it is late. This is absolute bull, and not only do I blame our government, but I blame the thieving bastads who actually commit fraud because it’s their fault that this extra precaution is needed. Because they’re so pathetic that they can not make their own money and live with whatever they worked for like everyone else, those who make their money honestly are being punished and can’t even recieved the money they worked for! I hate how much this world has been ruined by selfish and inconsiderate scum.



    We filed elec on Mar 14, called in May website says processed, so where is my refund. I was on hold for 1 hr and 38 minutes inquiring as to where my refund is, was told it will be an additional 30 to 45 business days. Then I got ugly to the person on the phone, inwasvasked if they could “review” my return, what am I going to say but yes, now all of a sudden I need to provide receipts because she reviewed my tax return. Is the State of Georgia employing bullies to withhold our refunds, I have not to this day been asked for anything. I asked the clerk when was the State of Georgia going to request that additional information her response was “I just did””
    I have contacted the tax commissioner through my house representative, no response from tax commissioner. Now I will have to retain the services of my CPA which will cost me more money. You bet your sweet *** if I owed them money they would be sending me all kinds of correspondence.

    PLEASE WRITE THE GOVERNOR AND TAX COMMISSIONER. WE NEED TO COMPLAIN AND BE CLEAR THAT THIS IS INSANE AND UNACCEPTABLE. In prior years, the State of Georgia has processed refunds within 21 calendar days. Now we are being told that it could take 12 weeks or more. While I understand the state is trying to reduce fraud, there is no way that the change in their process should quadruple the time it takes to process tax returns and get owed refunds to the citizens of the state. We should both complain and also insist that the state explain in detail why the process is taking so long. It feels like they are delaying refunds to manage their budget and cashflow. Here is contact information for the governor and tax commissioner.

    Filed electronically on March 8, 2016 and as of today July 11, 2016 no refund received. Called and talked to a rep three times now and although she stated there was no issue with my return the process of issuing the refund is now longer. Hmmmmm, if I would have been late, I would have been paying an additional penalty so the question now is does the state of Georgia owe more for not being timely?



    Has anyone received their refund yet!!!!!!



    I e-file my Fed tax online on 3/19/16, received Fed refund direct deposit on 3/25/16. I mailed my GA tax return on 3/21/16. Kept checking on the website for 4 weeks without any information. Finally after 4-5 weeks it says “Your return has been received, and it is currently being processed. Please contact the Department at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711), option 3 to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am -5pm.” Today is 6/13/16. I still have not received my refund and called 877-423-6711, and have been on-hold for 75 minutes now, no one answers the phone.
    What can I do?
    Anyone has any idea?



    I have had to call into the GA tax office 3 times now. The 1st time she said it would be 4-6 weeks on my refund, the 2nd time it would be 6-8 weeks and now she states she is the one who requested my w2 again and that she never told me 4-6 weeks that it is always 8-10 weeks. What is really going on in GA? This is the most ridiculous situation I have ever experienced. They are also the rudest people I have ever dealt with on the phone.



    I filed in late Feb., called before the 30 days were up, may be 21 days, and was told to wait the 30 days. Called again at the end of 30 days and was told they needed to verify my place of employment and I was to fax them my W2 and wait another 30 days. Did that on 4-5. I’m calling today to make sure the W2 was received since I haven’t gotten my return yet. Was on hold for 45 minutes first guy tells me he can’t answer my question so he has transferred me to the department that can answer my question. So now, I’ve been on hold now for and hour and half. What is the state doing? Why do I have to work so hard to get my money?



    Unreal…this is my 3rd time calling in to the GA Revenue Special Investigation department because that is what the update on my refund told me to do.

    Here I’ve been on hold for 55 min now, still have not spoken to anyone.

    How ridiculous is it for them to expect that it’s ok to take up to 45 business days to process a refund and then have the audacity to hold refund processing longer for anything they feel like they need to validate. And if I have to call you, you better not expect me to just give up hours of my life to make a simple phone call that YOU are requiring me to make.

    I’ve worked in IT operations for around 15 years now, currently running operations for a company, and I would be fired for allowing even 1 customer to have to work this hard to get help. And from the looks of the forum, it seems like this is just the norm! Wonder who I can even complain to that will bother to listen? This really all just seems like a scam for the government to earn a little extra interest of the money they aren’t giving back to us yet. Or worse…they have a deficit and are scrambling to get the money back to people. Hope GA isn’t that desperate.

    I’ve lived in GA for 12 years and have NEVER had to wait more than a few weeks for my refund to auto-deposit to my bank account.

    Whoo hoo! We’ve ticked over the hour mark and someone picked up! Now to see what they needed so desperately from me!

    They basically had me validate by phone my name, my spouse’s name, our address, our occupations and explain why I had more than one W2 for the same job. They said this was an identity theft measure, but how does talking to me over the phone prove anything? If someone had the knowledge to enter the information to file the refund pretending to be me and called the number because the website told them to, wouldn’t they be able to answer all of those questions?

    I will be lodging a complaint with the Commissioner for the Tax Revenue office and I suggest others do the same.

    Now to see if I actually get my GA refund in the next 7-14 business days….seeing as I had to wait 30 business days before I could even call them. Just nonsense!



    Mine was accepted on 1/29/16 and still no money.
    The website tells me I have the wrong info to check on it, though I know my SS and refund amount, and the info to make an account is messed up and won’t let me make one.
    I have tried calling many, many, many times and never got anyone.
    I have no way to get to anyone there and I am pissed.



    First time filer for ga
    Filed on 1/24
    Accepted 1/24
    Recieved federal 2/15
    Called Ga DOR on 3/25 said being reveiwed.
    Called again 4/1 and said i had to varify info and said 7 to 10 day for state refund check. Hope this helps.



    I called yesterday since it had been 45 days since I filed and still no refund check. As a first time filer in GA, I had to call in and verify my information,: SSN, Phone Number, Address before they would release my refund check. My DDD is 3/31

    Apparently if you are still waiting for a refund check after 4/15, they will mail out letters letting you know if you need to take any action…. such as calling in and verifying your Identity



    Accepted on 2/27 and checked this morning with a DDD of 3/21. Have yet to check my bank for confirmation.



    Finally my state refund has DDD of 3/21. So, it was 2 months from the date of acceptance



    I cannot believe I have been on hold for 2 hours. This has to be the most ridiculous thing in the world to me!



    We filed 2/16, accepted 2/17, received our fed about a week later, nothing on GA yet. I’m getting the same generic message, “Your tax return has been received. Please allow 6-8 weeks from the date filed for your tax return to complete processing.”



    I checked the website to find out where my state return was and it stated that it would be deposited on 3/3. But no deposit was there.



    I called today and spoke to representative. She said that my return is under additional review and I’ll need to wait 30 days more. What a disappointment =\



    After an hour and twenty minute wait talked to someone at GA DOR tax fraud unit. She released my refund and gave me the “should be receiving 7-30 day line”. She didn’t even ask me any questions. Hopefully I’ll get my refund tomorrow or Thursday like others here and this will finally be over with…




    Same here as of yesterday. I called yesterday and was on hold for 1 hour 20 minutes!!! I was told they needed my w2 to process my return! Really? They have had over 30 days and could have told me that weeks ago!

    Good news my federal refund is pending!!



    At thirty day mark today and woke up to the good ole call the GA DOR and press option 3 message. Can’t wait to call and wait on hold a couple hours arghhh…



    Just letting everyone know that I received my Ga on Friday the 26th. It was exactly 30 days from filing/acceptance. No verification but I checked my status on DOR and it still says 6-8l weeks. I just happened to check acct and it was deposited. So just saying the site may not update, so keep watching your bank acct. See you next year and hopefully we get faster refunds.




    I was accepted on 01/30 and my acct is saying/doing the same thing. Called GA DOR late last week and they stated that my refund would be deposited in my bank account on March 1 after the 30 day processing/account holding process that they’re doing this year. This seems to be pretty accurate judging by below posts. Hopefully you’ll receive it on Monday/Tuesday like me. Hope this helps.



    Accepted 1/29 status has said 6-8 weeks, but this morning I updated to 30 days. Not sure if they mean 30 more days or what.

    I also updated federal with a ddd of 3/2 so I am hoping I get both around the same time. Its been the longest I have ever waited.




    Sounds like the GA DOR is unfortunately confused/doesn’t know what’s going on with your account which doesn’t surprise me this year lol. I would call them first thing Monday morning (open M-F 8-5) at 404-417-6501 and get it straightened out. Good luck and let us know what they say.




    We got a DDD, but then got a letter to “provide additional information”. I think we are on hold until they get the additional info.



    Just received a text message that my state refund was received by Republic Bank and the funds have been sent to my bank account. I an so GRATEFUL!!!!!!



    I filed and was accepted on 1/25. I had the normal message until 2/25, when it gave me the 1-800 number to call and advised me to press option 3. I called and the said that my refund was placed on hold for a random review. They told me that I should have my refund within the next 30 days. I checked the refund website on 2/26 (the next day after I called) and I had ddd of 2/29.



    Filed 01/22; Accepted 01/23. Had a message at the 30 day mark to call 1- 800 number. Call (1st time on hold 1hr,11mins and was hung up on. Call back and was on hold 1hr,8mins) and representative asked about name, SSN, address and amount expecting. she put me on hold for about 5 minutes and asked me to verify box 17 on my W-2 and when I did, she said my refund would be decreased by $500.This was on 2/23/15. Then said I would still have to wait another 7 to 30 days for my funds. Looked at the website on 2/25/16 and it still had the same message to call the 1-800-number. Call back and waited about 45 minutes, I mentioned the previous call, he asked the same questions and came back with it will be release in 7 – 30 days. Yesterday I received a DDD of 02/26, but I have no funds as of yet.

    filed and accepted 1/23, no DDD yet =\




    Still haven’t received direct deposit per GA DOR person I talked to the other day I’ll be receiving it on March 1. Exactly thirty days from my acceptance date. But who knows lol. Have you received your direct deposit yet?




    Did you ever get a DDD? Ours was 2/23. Still no funds.



    Called and spoke with GA DOR today. Stated that money will be deposited and in my account March 1st after 30 day required tax processing and payment/deposit procedure. I was accepted Jan. 30 so March first is exactly 30 days after. That seems pretty accurate judging by previous responses on here. Just have to wait the FULL thirty days to receive guys and girls. Good luck and hope this helps.



    Wow….. Ga is really taking there sweet time this year. This is bull…. And one thing to the ppl that said they turned there taxes off on there w4, that will turn your federal off, for ga taxes u have to fill out a G4 form and submit it.



    I filed 1/29, accepted 1/30 and mine still shows the ‘wait 6-8 weeks for processing message’.



    Had DDD of 2/24 for state but no deposit in bank. Fees were taken out of federal.



    Well, well, well….I have filed on 2/2. Getting 6 To 8 weeks message I have called 3 times the first person told me they have my refund it just has not been released call back a week later and next person told me have to wait 30 days for processing third person told me just yesterday 30 days for processing Georgia as always big DUCKED big time!!!! Does anyone who was accepted on 2/2 have a direct deposit date yet?



    Got a ddd yesterday 2/23 for today 2/24. I had no fees taken out or fraud alerts to call about. But still no funds.



    I guess wt would be helpful for me is knowing wn everyones refund is hitting the bank compared to DDD. And to know if folk are having fees taken out or not.

    We filed 2/12
    Told to call for fraud verify 2/18
    Got DDD notification on 2/22 for a 2/23 DDD.
    No funds yet.



    I have a ddd of today but no deposit. :/



    Hello all,

    @jerry and @jay. Where are you seeing the “$-700” in green?



    I recieved a DDD od 2/23 on Saturday but no deposit yet



    My Georgia was accepted on 1/23/2016 – just received a ddd date of 2/24/2016



    My balance was negative last week and since Friday it has had a zero balance, but no DDD. Still just says 6-8 weeks. What does this mean?



    Finally, this morning I am showing a DDD of 2/24/16.



    So, I b\posted yesterday how I called and talked to them after seeing the “Call and press 3” message. She told me it would be 30 days or less to see my refund (after it had ALREADY been 30 days since I filed…). Checked status this morning and my message has changed to show a DDD of tomorrow 02/24. So, good news to anyone who has called and got their return released after whatever hold they had on it. They do process it real quick after! Just sucks we have to jump through hoops.



    @ Paige

    Congrats. Did you do anything to receive your return faster? We both have the same acceptance date of 01/29 and I still have the “your return is being processed please allow 4-6 weeks” message. Called GA DOR today and she stated I had to wait until March 1st to finish being processed. Thanks.



    This is not to “rub it in”; this is just to let y’all know that I got my deposit at 6:00am this morning on the exact date they said. Good luck, everyone! See y’all next year!




    I have the same accept an day as you. Wonder how you got yours so fast lol? Just called GA DOR and they stated that my tax return is still being processed and would have to wait the full thirty days to March 1st to receive. My return is still being processed and my refund has not even been released yet. Anything different you did on GA Tax Center website or on phone to receive so fast? Did you file your taxes with TurboTax? If anyone else can think of anything as well? Thanks for your help.



    I got the same message (to call and select option 3) and I called. I never got in touch with a single person! I’m pissed! I stayed on hold for over an hour! I just changed my W-4 to not have anything come out of my check to Ga anymore.



    Just got off the phone with them after receiving the “call and press option 3” message. She asked for my social, address, refund amount, and employer. Put me on hold for 30 seconds and then told me that my return was processed now, and that it will be deposited in 30 days or less. I filed and got accepted 01/21, so it has already been 30. I guess I have to wait another 30 more now. Hopefully it comes soon. Not too happy.



    Erika, I got that same message Friday. I called first thing this morning, rep asked a few questions and then released my refund. Rep said it could be 7-30 days before I got it though. I have never seen anything like it’s been this year, it’s insane. I’ve been filing and getting refunds for 30 years and I’ve never had to call to get a refund released.



    I checked this morning, and mine has officially changed to the :call this number and press option 3″ message. Why????? I filed and it was accepted on 01/21. Now a month later they need me to call? Trying to patiently wait until 8 when they open, so I can figure out what they need.



    Still nothing



    Has anyone gotten an early deposit for 2/22 ddd? It took way too long and they’re not releasing them even a second early. :/



    Today’s status after faxing a copy of my W2 on 2/19
    Your return has been received. Please contact the Taxpayer Services Division Individual Section at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a Taxpayer Services Representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am -5pm.

    I was told when I called in on 2/19 they needed a copy of my W2.
    I immediately faxed a copy and then called back to be told it could be yet another 30 days before anything is finished. Seems they are randomly picking people for about any of a thousand different reasons to “flag” They say they can not tell anyone the reason why.
    I think they are just stalling to keep from sending refunds. I hope an attorney gets involved in this at some point and they are fully exploited.
    They are probably hoping that people will give up with all the hassle and they can keep your money!!!!



    This morning my message has changed to call the 877 number. I just talked to them yesterday. Guess I will have to wait till Monday to call again.



    So I woke up this morning and checked wmr and I finally have a ddd for Feb 23. Looks like they’re finally getting some consistent movement. Hang in there y’all.



    I freaking hate Georgia. One of the worst states in this country.

    Can’t wait to get the hell out of this god forsaken hell hole.

    give me my damn money!!!!



    I called the Ga state return 2 weeks ago and received a msg to call and speak with someone option 3, when I spoke with them they didn’t see any issues. The msg then went back to 6-8 weeks, well needless to say I checked this morning and received the same msg to call and speak with someone option 3. They questioned my work history and told me 7 to 30 days, now the msg went to 30 days and no longer 6-8 weeks. So now I need to know how long I will have to wait now. Is anyone going through the same scenario?



    I just got off the phone with them also. Here’s what the rep told me. It will be 6-8 weeks even if you efiled. There was no problem with my return, but it has not been released, they are holding it. I asked how other people who filed 2 weeks after the ones that filed 1/19 are getting theirs, and he couldn’t answer it. Well I can answer it, I am retired from the State of Georgia, worked 32 years with them, and every time they give a big raise to teachers and State employees, which they are doing for this coming fiscal year (3%), they hold refunds.



    So I just got off the phone with them and they said that my refund was actually released yesterday. She doesn’t know why it’s not updated on the career site, but she said give it 3 to 5 days to show up in your account. So early filers hold on there’s some hope we might be in on the 2/22 ddd also.



    Well this sucks. I filed on the 19th, accepted on the 20th no updates for me either. Glad it’s not just me. I’m on hold with them now. I’ll let you know what I find out.



    Seems like us who filed on 1/19, accepted 1/20 are the ones getting the shaft. Certainly not a first come first serve deal.



    I filed 1/28 and was accepted on 1/29. I woke up to a DDD of 2/22 this morning.



    I just checked, and there’s no change for me either. I’m going to call and bug them, because I know if I owed, they would be happy to do the same to me.



    I filed on 1/29 and was accepted 1/30.



    @ Paige
    What day did you file?



    No change for me today. I thought sure I would get a DDD of 2/22. It’s been 30 days, guess they are going the full 45 business days.



    My original Status after being received on the 20th stated “Your return has been received and is currently being processed Call and press option 3 to speak to a representative”
    About a week later My status changed to “Your tax return has been received and is currently being processed allow 6 to 8 weeks”
    Today Feb 19th I have a new status update that says the same thing as when it was first received about calling and pressing option 3!
    I called way back in January when I got the first message and the guy said it was just a standard message, it was being processed.
    My return was accepted on 1/20
    As of 2/19 STILL nothing
    I am sick of Georgia! I wish the people would stop electing these crooks that run our state!
    I am changing my withholding so that nothing or next to nothing is being sent to these crooks. They can then hold their breath and wait for me to pay them! If everyone did that their weekly, monthly income would drop so dramatically they would have no choice but to stop being so crooked!



    Praise the baby Jesus! I last checked around 5:00PM and just now it said this:

    Your Georgia income tax refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/22/2016. Please allow 5-7 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.Georgia Department of Revenue issues most refunds within 30 business days. Our phone and walk-in representatives can research the status of your refund only if it has been 30 days or more since you filed electronically, more than 6 weeks since you mailed your paper return, or if “Where’s My Refund?” directs you to contact us.

    Before making an inquiry, please allow thirty business days.



    Per below DOR website, Georgia Pulse, they finished processing around another 100,000 people last night. They were at 88,000 yesterday. Hopefully they can keep up the 1000,000 people a day pace. Still got a LOT more. Their system just updates and sends refunds just once a day Monday through Friday at midnight so be sure to check your GAC account every morning to see if you have a DDD. I’m in the same boat waiting aimlessly all you guys ????.



    Omg.. this is such BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    I called this morning about 830 and spoke to a young man and ask them about the delay he say he doesn’t know what is causing the delay I asked him about my negative Green he said it means it is processed is just not released yet he also stated that he is waiting on his and his return was excepted on 20 January and you could tell in his voice that he was just As upset as we are. My daughter is getting less than $60 and they still haven’t paid her. Do they update at midnight or throughput the day?



    Same thing today, no update. It’s been 30 days, tried to call but I can’t wait on hold with my pay as you go phone. I got a message when I called about the delay saying it will be 30-45 BUSINESS days, so all of us that filed on the 19th will probably be waiting until the first of March.



    Deposits are rolling in for those with ddd 2/18.Mine was deposited in my account this morning so they are moving along good luck everyone



    Well today is day 30, I guess it’s time to call them when they open at 8 ><



    It’s 4am and no change
    Still sitting at neg green
    Filed and accepted 1/19
    Message still says 6-8 weeks
    ‼️???? F Georgia! ‼️



    Maj I’m not sure I was hoping midnight. But now I’m starting to get really pissed off at them now.



    does anyone know what time they update?



    Did talks update at night or just now



    Wheeeeeeeeeeee! I’m soooo happy there’s movement! I’m ready for mine now!



    I received my DDD as well I filled on Jan 14 my state was accepted on Jan 15

    Nice to hear that SOMEONE is actually receiving their taxes. If you could provide the screen shot for a LOT of us who haven’t received there’s yet to see what it actually looks like would be great. Also, when was your return accepted? Thanks.



    I woke up to a DDD this morning. Would be happy to share screenshot with anyone that’s having problems believing they were released.




    Just because you haven’t received a ddd doesn’t mean the people that did are lying. I thought this page was here to help people! I hope when you get your ddd no one thinks you’re lying!



    I have a feeling this people are lying….. Don’t believe everything you hear.



    I’m glad some of us are getting DDD’s. Still the same for me, filed on 1/19, accepted on 1/20 and I’m getting the same message for the last three weeks, return received 6-8 weeks for processing. It should not take this long when you efile. This is taking as long as it did back in the day when I mailed it in. They will not be using my money again after this.




    Thanks for the response. I filed and was accepted on 01/30. So hopefully I’ll be getting mine a few days early on 01/27 like @kadensmom or even sooner. Go dawgs!! screw Georgia government ????




    I filed on 1/14 along with my federal. I don’t know when it was accepted though.



    I also woke up to a DDD of 02/18. State taxes were accepted on the 1/21.




    Congrats on actually getting your return ???? What date did you file on? Thanks.




    Congrats on actually getting your return ???? What date did you file on? Thanks.



    checked this morning…my account has been zeroed out…ddd for 2/18 for state of Georgia refund!!!




    We are all just waiting~ waiting to see if the green turns to zero. Its processed the money is just not released.



    what in the HELL is taking so long? Georgia really must be broke. I hate living in this stupid state



    Thats it exactly!
    My 30 business days is this Friday. She just told me the same thing.
    GA is trying to collect interest from us.



    My status changed yesterday(2/14) to call and press option 3. Called this morning nothing was wrong still processing. She stated my 30 days is almost up so call back in a few days if no change. Checked my account and have a negative balance so hopefully things will progress this week.



    Just spoke to rep. She stated my refund is finished processing, but will not be released until 30 days is up. That tells me one thing… Ga is broke.



    No update this morning. This is ridiculous.



    Anyone care to make the wait interesting? Also, I counted on my return to pay some bills, so yeah, this sucks. :(



    I filed early on Jan. 11 and was accepted on Jan. 19. Finally got the message today to confirm my identity. Called and they released my refund after a few quick questions. Said it could be up to 21 days before I receive the DD. We shall see, but one step closer!



    I filed on January 29, 2016. My taxes were accepted from the State of Georgia on January 30th; I’m still getting the 6-8 week notice. They are supposed to update it 10 business days after you file. Today is the 10th business day! This is crazy. The State of Georgia doesn’t have a problem taking $ away from any of us before we even see our pay, but they seem to have a deep problem refunding the money they owe you…Shame on them! I received my Federal refund on 2/10/16. I usually get my State refund at the same time. It usually don’t take this long. They need to include interest with our refunds…this is crazy!



    No update this morning.

    The 30 days they are counting says business days, so with weekends and holidays that puts us that filed on 2/19 not getting refunds until around the first week of March.



    Yep looks like they’re going the full 30 days …. Which puts us into next week Friday.. Which sucks.



    This is the last year they will be using my money. I’m retired and do not have to pay any State income tax, I’ve just been letting them take it out and use it, then get a refund at the end of the year. Not anymore, I’m changing my G-4 to have 0 taken out.



    Here’s the explanation on what they want us to think. Legislators are in session; they need to show money, period. It’s ridic.

    Fraud Prevention Measures and Refunds

    February 11, 2016
    ATLANTA, GA- In accordance with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) the Georgia Department of Revenue began accepting individual tax returns on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 and will extend the deadline to Monday, April 18, 2016. The Department of Revenue takes every measure to process tax returns in a timely manner. Due to issues during 2015 regarding security breaches of third party preparers and the constant threat of tax fraud and refund theft, the Department of Revenue is taking additional fraud prevention measures this filing season to ensure tax refunds are issued to the correct individuals. These additional measures may create the need to further review a tax return, and ultimately extend the time between when an individual files their tax return and when they receive their tax refund. Individuals who file error-free, electronic returns may receive their refund within 30 – 45 days from their file date. Individuals who do not file electronically, or error free, may take six to eight weeks from their file date to receive their refund.

    “Our primary goal is to protect the taxpayers of the State of Georgia,” said Josh Waites, Director of the Department of Revenue’s Office of Special Investigations. “We determined from the 2015 filing season that the additional time between the taxpayer filing their tax return and receiving their refund allows us to better detect fraudulent returns, and ultimately get the refund to the individual it belongs to.”

    The Georgia Department of Revenue also offers taxpayers the ability to track their refund through the “Where’s my refund?” feature on the Georgia Tax Center.



    Sounds like they are going to take 30 days regardless.



    On the GA Dept of Rev website they posted some message about Fraud and refunds!!!



    I just spoke with my bank about something else. She said they have only seen 1 GA deposit come in thus far, which is very strange.



    Still no ddd for me. GAH



    The 19th! Wow that’s real slow. I’m hoping updates hit tonight.



    I was searching around trying to find info on Georgia returns being delayed this year, and came across this site. So I see I’m not the only one who is still waiting for their refund. I filed on 1/19, accepted on 1/20, got my federal refund on 2/5. I’m getting the same msg as everyone else, return received, wait 6-8 weeks for processing. It’s never been this slow. Last year I got mine back in 10 days. I’m a retired senior and I don’t have to pay any State income tax, but I let them take it out and use it during the year, then file for a refund. But If they are going to play this game I think I’m going to redo my G-4 and have nothing taken out. Hope we all see our refunds soon.



    Jay, The -700 in green means they have processed your return and show you are due a 700 refund. When they actually send you the money that number will go to 0. If Tabi really did receive her GA last week, she’s the only person in the state. EVERYONE is getting the same message of 6-8 weeks. I called today and they said no delays. I filed in the 19th. They said call back if I don’t have it by 2/19. REALLY SLOW THIS YEAR…….



    It’s coming just don’t know when LOL
    This is crazy! I got mine last year on the 11th so maybe tomorrow .



    Im still getting the Georgia 6-8 weeks msg. I have alread recieved my Fed a week ago.

    My daughter filed before me and when she checked on her ga state it gave her the records dont match msg. So she called and was told she wasnt due a refund and they transfered her 5 times then finally a lady looked into it abd amended her return and confirmed she will be gettig a refund and now has to wait 6-8 more weeks!



    Filed 1/22 accepted 1/22. Got my Federal DD today. Still getting the 6-8 week message when attempting to check online for GA.



    What does it mean if you check on you state acct and it says $-700 in green. Do I owe or is that my refund,because turbo tax said I’m getting a refund.



    No change here either. STill have 6-8 weeks message. Keep earning that interest, GA. :(



    Good morning
    No change – no DDD, still saying 6-8 weeks processing. This is the longest it’s ever taken. I don’t know what’s going on. Maybe you guys will have better luck than I.
    Filed 19
    Accepted 20
    Already received Federal
    No state refund as of today



    I received my federal, but still no state. I filed on the 21st and accepted for federal on the 21st and state on the 22nd. It is still saying 6-8 weeks.



    Did your status change from 6-8 week msg before your deposit?



    Accepted on the 20th still no dep. hoping for some action tonight! Last year it came on the 11th



    We received our DD from Georgia last friday, we filed the 29th




    Thank you so much for fast response. Very helpful. I wish you were the irs agent working on my tax return…lol




    Here’s your link:

    You can create an account on the lower right-hand side.

    Hope this helps.




    No update still says 6-8 weeks. I’d like to check my tax account, but I can’t figure out how. How do you register for one if you don’t have one already?



    Nada. If I base it off last year, I’ll be looking for it 2/11-2/12.



    No update and no deposit



    No update still saying 6to 8 weeks for me.



    Any updates?



    Did anyones GA post to there account this morning? I have had a credit since last Wednesday, I am hoping it will post Tuesday morning. If it does I will let you all know.



    My federal ddd 2/10
    Ga state says 6-8 weeks but it’s showing as a credit in Ga Tax Center. Last year I got my GA 9 days after Fed, year before I got feds on Tues and Ga on Thurs. Waiting patiently. Maybe ga’s wmr will update tonight?



    I filed and was accepted 1/29 @ 12 am.
    All I can do is order acct tranny for fed, still 1 bar tt152.
    Ga: at first was giving an 800 number and now it says give them 6-8 weeks. I was also worried Ga doesn’t like giving out refunds I have noticed! Anyway, so many people having the same msg and delay makes me rest easier.

    They were slow for me last year, but I had my fed money so it didn’t bother me.



    I filed my federal and Georgia taxes on 1-16-16, was accepted for both on the 19th. I have a ddd for federal but nothing on Georgia. When I first started checking it, it said to call a rep, now it just says if not received in 6 to 8 weeks to call. Anyone get a ddd yet?



    Filed 01/19, accepted 01/21. Still no state refund.



    I filed and was accepted on the 21st. Still no refund. I was worried, but we all could not have done something wrong.



    Ok, now I don’t feel so bad, mine is saying the same thing to call the number. I think that is a generic response on their website. I received my GA State refund last year within 7 days after they accepted it. It has been 2 weeks this year so far and nothing, so I’m getting nervous.



    @LadyLeo thats what I was thinking as well. I hope so. Even if I didn’t need the money, which I do haha, it still makes me nervous when things like this take too long because I get to thinking something went wrong or I did something the wrong way lol.



    @amchelem yours should be coming, The message about if not received …. usually means it has been processed.



    I called them like mine told me to do and then after I called them it popped up saying I needed to call them and do option 3 so I did. After I called the second time they told me to expect my refund in 30 days or less.. and now my status says this:

    Your return has been received and is currently being processed, please allow 30 days to receive your refund. If your refund has not been received in 30 days, please log on to the Georgia Department of Revenue website at complete the Replacement Check Request Form and follow the instructions.



    No dd date as of yet for me either. Read somewhere that may be a glitch in the system that says to call because even if you put in your info with any random amount you get that message to call so not sure whats going on there. Try calling the number maybe to get an update. I called and it said its being processed and being reviewed. Not sure if that is just a generic response or just mine is being reviewed.



    Mine still says its processing



    I’m in GA. but I owe the state so no refund for me…?


    Woo Woo

    Nope i cant even access the site. It says for me to call a representative
