    This year getting anything other than a canned response would be a miracle. Georgia will now be paying interest on my refund. They removed all my deductions and they are requiring documentation of my deductions….that is fine; HOWEVER when I called one month after my documentation was received I am told it will be another 12-14 weeks before my account will be reviewed and any refund given. The individual I spoke with on the phone had no clue about my real estate loss deduction…. her comment “I don’t know if your loss in Virginia can be claimed on your Georgia state return. SERIOUSLY? If the IRS accepts a deduction as valid you can bet the state of Georgia does too. SMDH, you get what you pay for when it comes to intelligent employees, seasonal phone help at less than $10 an hour. Meanwhile I’m sitting here calculating the amount of interest I will be paid.

    Filed and was accepted 1/28/17, 90 BUSINESS days from the February 1st date they say they
    started processing is tomorrow, 6/9/2017.
    Lady on phone says 90 days is up 6/15/2017 and after that date they will owe me interest.
    Otherwise, no refund date and just says “processing”.
    This is insane and the worst I have seen a state income tax refund, though the year before Georgia was pretty bad too.
    If I paid them this late there would be penalties, my tax return isn’t complicated.
    They are already FOUR MONTHS late on paying me.

    Still waiting, I want to call and ask why I have to wait when others have filed and received refunds WEEKS, even MONTHS after I filed a timely return. Sweet baby Jesus, I see a day trip to Atlanta in my future.

    Hi Guys,

    I figured I would just drop my experience thus far and then let you know how this finishes. I am a new GA resident (moved here middle of last year), so this process is entirely new. I had the message “Your tax return has been received and is being processed. Please contact the Georgia Department of Revenue at 1- 877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) option 3 to speak with a Representative.”

    Following the direction I 1.) Called Thursday and spoke with a representative that told me if I didn’t see a change on Monday to call back. 2.) Called back Monday morning and spoke with a representative that told me I should be getting a letter, probably that day or the next. Asked if it was a bad letter, and she told me it wasn’t, but wouldn’t give more information. 3.) Just called back, had a representative tell me she was transferring me to the review department (no clue why), waited twenty minutes for another representative to tell me that it wasn’t the review department and nothing was wrong with my account. He lets me know an adjustment was made to my refund, tells me one or two weeks and I should have my refund. After, I check my status online again , the message now says “Your tax return has been received and is being processed. Please allow 90 business days to complete processing”. I was also able to finally create an online account which it wouldn’t let me do before.

    If anything else changes, I will post.

    @IAMWaiting and @Macki So I guessed right per my previous msg to you guys:
    I think you will get DD to show up on Thu 2/16.

    @Toya I think your DD should be tom 2/15.

    I am so confused..I filed 1/26. Will receive DD from Fed 2/15. I called GA this morning and the first rep was zero help…she said to wait 90 days. Second rep I spoke to asked me a few security questions and said i should receive refund in 45 days. My message on the GA site now changed from the “90 to process” to “please contact the GA department of revenue”. Is this normal? Do I really need to call back in since I literally did this 5 minutes ago. HELP! GA is the worst!!!

    #4169956 Reply

    Macki

    Ok I checked Georgia Tax Center at noon !!
    The message changed I got a refund date of 2/16
    @Toya I hope that helps you some and @IAMWAITING you should get yours soon.

    I did call twice and both times they told me the system was processing my return and they could not access my return unless it was flagged.
    Now keep in mind last year I had been flagged last year.
    **I had moved and the address on one w2 and on my bank account flagged me**

    I will post as soon as it hits the bank Try not to freak out its going to come usually before 90 days

    FYI: If anyone isn’t seeing the app update, check the web version of WMR or GTC. The app still says my refund has been received and will be processed within 90 days (paraphrasing) but the online WMR has given me a DDD of 2/16. Had green negative balance on GTC yesterday, and balance of 0 this morning.

    Got my DD overnight this early am, finally. Mine was accepted on first day 1/23 and I would still be waiting if I hadn’t called them after reading this blog. It takes about 3 business days for DD after you call to get approved.

    I also was approved on feb 11th. Called on Feb 13th and agent told me my refund was issued on the 10th but still in process. (whatever that means) My credit has also changed to zero this morning on Feb14th. I thought for sure I would have a DDD by now. I’m praying I will see the funds in my WF Acct in the morning. Even though I don’t have a DDD.

    @Mackie, my timeline is almost the same as yours.

    Ga Accepted on 1/30
    Approved on 2/11
    Balance is at $0 when I logged in on 2/14
    However, no DDD

    Hoping I will get it by tomorrow.
    Fingers crossed!

    This morning my balance went to 0.00 on the GTC website ( when I logged into my account) so maybe I will have it tomorrow. I will keep you guys posted.
    **note**
    Just to see what would be said I called
    I spoke with Lisa who said My refund was still processing and could take up to 90 days but probably not that long.
    In my experience I’ve called twice on my own I’ve had no flags to call
    I did verify my identity last year and I provided my drivers license info for both parties on a joint return.
    I hope this info is helpful.

    Filed 1/27
    Accepted 1/28
    Approved 2/12 ( but not given a ddd)
    Balance changed on 2/14

    @GaGirlWaiting I am happy for you that you got it on 2/10. That was faster than the 2/13 date of today they gave you. Still waiting here even though refund amt disappeared on 2/10. WF usually shows refund same business day if deposit made before 4pm. So maybe it will show later today but probably tom. So the 2 diff dates they gave me was to tell me it was released 2/10 and expect DD on 2/14.

    GA State accepted on 1/30. Status on where’s my refund stated “It has been received and to allow 90 days for procsssing”

    On Saturday 2/11, status changed to “Your refund has been approved and final processing of a refund will be completed in the order that it was received. Please allow 90 business days. If it has been longer than 90 days then contact the Taxpayer Services Division at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am – 5 pm.”

    How long aftter will I receive a DDD?

    Well, I guess the refund was released on 2/10 since my green, negative amount disappeared then. So been waiting for it to show up in my WF bank acct but still nothing. I thought for sure it would today 2/13 after weekend. So it should tomorrow I hope.

    Everyone should call them if it has been more than 2 weeks since they accepted regardless. This way you can get ahead of the game becoming verified and approved quicker.

    I went from the 90 day processing message to Your Refund is approved, please allow 90 days to process. I just called this morning asking about my status since I do see a credit. The rep said my refund had been issued on Friday and now I’m just waiting for it to process. I don’t understand if the refund has been issued what still needs to process? I hope I get a DDD today.

    I use turbo tax to file
    I filed 1/27/17
    I got accepted on 1/28
    I got approved on 2/11
    I saw alot of posts saying to call and then they were approved I called last Thursday and I asked for info about my taxes because last year since I had moved I had to verify my identity.
    The only info I got from my call was It was processing ,it could take up to 90 days ,and I had no flags on my taxes at that time.
    So unless you get a message that’s says Call them
    (Not the message that says if you have not received within 90 days then call)
    Then I would just be patient
    But that’s all the info I can help with :)

    Just curious if anyone has received their GA refund? My state return was accepted 1/23 and I’ve had the same status ever since. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to call (according to this message) or if it’s just a blanket message.

    “Your return has been received, and it is currently being processed. Please contact the Taxpayer Services Division at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am -5pm.”

    Update. Good news, but this is a little strange, got 2 different dates. Just got email notification just now from GTC:

    You are receiving this message because you have opted-in for notifications. Your refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/10/2017. Please allow 10 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.

    But when I login to GTC and click WMR, it says:

    Your refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/14/2017. Please allow 10 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.

    @GaGirlWaiting Thanks, I did sign up for email notification on GTC, so will be on alert for that email. Will post with update. I also have DD for WF bank but haven’t worked/filed in over 5 years. So she said that she sees setup for DD but a check could be mailed to my address on return (not old address on my driver’s license).

    I guess the big difference of calling is to get it approved from being processed status. Then the spiel that it could still take 30-90 days.

    This is infuriating that we have to call and not be told about this to help progress and approve faster.

Has anyone else had to do this. Even after I verified everything on the phone with her.

    GA return accepted: 1/23/17
    It’s green on GTC site.

    Federal return accepted 1/17/17, DD 2/1/17.

    I just called GTC just now, 877-423-6711 option 3, then 3. It was really quick even though msg says longer hold time. She asked my info and then after 1 minute hold she said basically same thing that WMR now says:

    Your refund has been approved and final processing of a refund will be completed in the order that it was received. Please allow 90 business days. If it has been longer than 90 days then contact the Taxpayer Services Division at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am – 5 pm.

    So pretty much same msg just a lot more extra words from previous:

    Please allow 90 business days to complete processing.

    So please give any input if this is same experience or have info….

    I initially got the 90 day message. Filed on 1/26 and accepted on 1/27. I called the 1-877-423-6711 number and initially got nowhere. Today I called back and chose Opt 3 then Opt 3 again. When the representative answered, I asked if I needed to verify any information on my return. She asked a few identifying information, placed me on hold for 3 minutes. When she came back, she told me my return was approved and the funds would be released for payment within 30 days.
