I filed on 1/23 and was accepted on 1/25January 30, 2017 at 11:51 am #4155202
Does anyone have an account on the GA Tax Center website. When I log into mine, it shows a status for my 2016 return as Error- Timely. The other years have Filed- Timely. Then when I check the status of my refund I get “your return has been received and it is currently being processed” along with the Feb. 1 message. So is there something wrong with my return that I need to correct?January 30, 2017 at 10:45 am #4155155
@Kum when did you file and when were you accepted?January 30, 2017 at 10:06 am #4154975
Still processing, it will take up to 90 days. That sucks if it does.January 29, 2017 at 12:59 pm #4154583
I’m getting this message…
Your refund has been approved and final processing of a refund will be completed in the order it was received. Please allow 90 business days.January 29, 2017 at 10:12 am #4154520

WE FILED ON 1/27/16 RETURN ACCEPTED ON 1/28/16. FED REFUND DEPOSITED ON 2/11/16. NEW MESSAGE TODAY SAYS:
Your tax return has been received and is being processed. Please allow 30 business days to complete processing. An updated status may be available in 15 business days.
SPOKE TO A PHONE REP EARLIER THIS WEEK AND MY REFUND HAS BEEN RELEASED FOR PAYMENT… ON THE GA TAX CENTER LOG IN, MY REFUND AMOUNT IS IN GREEN AND THE ACCOUNT BALANCE HAS JUST BEEN SITTING LIKE THIS FOR OVER A WEEK NOW.
I HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT….SO WTF? WHY HOLD MONEY FOR NO REASON?
HOW LONG HAVE OTHERS WAITED BETWEEN RELEASE AND DEPOSIT?
YOU KNOW I THINK I WANT INTEREST ON THE REFUND THEY ARE HOLDING…THEY WOULD CHARGE ME INTEREST IF I WAS LATE PAYING…JUST SAYINGFebruary 25, 2016 at 11:41 am #4143845
I filed 1/13. Accepted 1/29. Federal DDD 2/3. Received my federal 2/3.
Kept checking my state off and on and they posted a message that said to call. So I did. They told me it was a glitch, and that nothing was wrong with my return. To wait 30 days and I should have my money.
Two weeks later, still hadn’t received my money. Checked the status and it told me to call the 1-800 number and choose option 3 for fraud prevention. I did. She verified my address, employer, social security number, etc. Said she released my return and I should receive it within two weeks.
The next day I checked my status, and it said I had a DDD of 2/23.
2/23, my deposit wasn’t received. Still didn’t have it 2/24.
Checked the status this morning and it says “Your direct deposit was transmitted to your designated bank account; however, your refund failed to deposit because of incorrect information provided. Please allow an additional 30 days and a paper check will be mailed to the address provided on your return.”
Called them. Sat on hold for over 30 minutes for a guy to tell me that my information “didn’t match”, even though its the same address I’ve always used. I used my moms address to file, which I have since I was 18. But the state of GA has my physical address on file because of my driver’s license, I suppose. So they mailed my check to a totally different address than what I filed with. Whatever kind of damn sense that makes. He informed me that my check was mailed yesterday, and that I should receive it in 7 business days. What a bunch of BS.February 25, 2016 at 5:52 am #4143781
I filed 1/29. GA accepted 1/30. Had the 6-8 week thing until 2 days ago. Then it went to its being processed if you don’t get it in 30 days call them. Yesterday it showed a DDD of 2/25. Woke up this morning (2/25) and money is in the account.
Hope this helps someone else. Fyi, nothing different as far as employers etc this year. Did not have to call at all.February 24, 2016 at 9:59 am #4143625
After calling & verifying my info yesterday per the change in message on the WMR page, today the message updated again to:
“Your Georgia income tax refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/25/2016. Please allow 5-7 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.”February 23, 2016 at 4:58 pm #4143440
@Kimberly: Mine didn’t route through SBBT. Mine should have been straight deposited, but for some reason it wasn’t… My bank doesn’t hold things like that. My Federal had a DDD of 2/3, and bright and early on 2/3 it was there. I’m not sure what’s going on with my state, but it’s seriously starting to piss me off. lol. Just give it to me already so we can be done with it, geeeeez.February 23, 2016 at 2:49 pm #4143396
My status also changed from the 6-8 wks to – your refund is processing call number blah blah option 3. So I called today, & got a rep after about 30 minutes. She had me verify my name, address, company I worked for, & then said my refund would be released anywhere from 7 to 30 days.February 23, 2016 at 10:57 am #4143323
@rachelrs87. I had the same issue too. The state sent it to sbbt this morning. Depending onbhow your bank process’s we should have deposit tomorrow.February 23, 2016 at 7:35 am #4143251
Had a DDD of 2/23…. Still no deposit!!! Georgia is being friggin ridiculous this year!February 23, 2016 at 3:18 am #4143237
Had 2/23 ddd but no deposit. Anyone else?February 21, 2016 at 8:36 am #4142851
I have called every 2 weeks. Went from receiving the 6 weeks message to call an 800 number AGAIn to speak to a representative! What is the deal! SO FRUSTRATED!!!!February 21, 2016 at 12:48 am #4142821
They must make deposits everyday because my DDD is 2/22 and I see everyone else has 2/23 dddFebruary 20, 2016 at 8:02 pm #4142769
Got the message to call yesterday I called and at t around 11p m it changed to DDD 2/23.
I just changed mine to exempt I won’t be doing this mess next year!February 20, 2016 at 2:46 pm #4142712
I’m glad some are getting results. My msg changed this morning to call the 877 number. I had just talked to them yesterday, now have to wait till Monday and call again. Changing my G-4 next week to have 0 taken out the rest of the year. They will not be using my money again.February 20, 2016 at 1:27 pm #4142688
Finally a ddd of 2/23…it was exactly 30 days from acceptance before getting dddFebruary 20, 2016 at 10:05 am #4142582
I filed 2/5, was accepted by federal 2/6, accepted by Georgia 2/8. Received my federal refund Thursday the 18th, and have a DDD for Georgia for 2/23.February 20, 2016 at 10:02 am #4142581
After calling yesterday and verifying the info they requested, I now have a DDD of 2/23February 19, 2016 at 3:46 pm #4142312
I talked to a rep today also. Not sure what they are telling others, but I was told a CS rep. can not release your refund. I was told there were no problem with my return, but it was being held and it would take 6-8 weeks even if you efiled. I ask why there were some who filed 2 weeks after the ones that filed on 1/19 and was accepted on 1/20, he said he did not know. Here’s my theory, I am retired from the State of Georgia, worked 32 years with them. In the years where teachers and State employees got a big raise, and that is what has been approved for this fiscal year, a 3% raise, they have held back refunds during those years.February 19, 2016 at 2:48 pm #4142286
Per DOR Pulse, 281385 refunds issued to date, compared to 569808 same time last year.
I too had the generic processing message until this morning. The 877 number was listed to call when I looked this morning. I called, they verified personal info as well as employer from last year and then said they would release my refund and I could expect it within the next 30 business days.February 19, 2016 at 1:18 pm #4142250
I’ve been checking the status pretty much everyday, each day it had the generic please allow 6-8 weeks for your refund to be sent to you. Today I checked, and it gave me the 1-800 number and told me to choose option 3. I called, was on hold for over 40 minutes. I finally got a rep on the phone, she asked my social security number, my name, address, expected refund amount, and where i worked last year, and then she said she released my refund. She said to allow 30 days for my return to be sent to me, but the turnaround time was about 2 weeks. She also said that Georgia has everyone’s refund on hold, and that they just now started releasing them. Maybe that will calm some of all of you guys’ fears. :) If it’s helpful, I filed 1/13. Both federal and state were accepted on 1/19. Got my federal deposited in my account on 2/3, but still waiting on my state. Maybe they’ll give me my money back soon!February 19, 2016 at 12:18 am #4141940
Went from the 6-8 week message to 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 http://dor.ga.gov/ complete the Replacement Check Request Form and follow the instructions.

Still no progress!! HorribleFebruary 18, 2016 at 4:44 pm #4141817
I filed 1/21. Every time I check the Ga refund tracker it states my refund received and to please wait 6-8 weeks. I am glad I came to this forum. I see at least I am no the only one.February 17, 2016 at 8:15 pm #4141398
No update here, still getting the 6-8 weeks message when I check refund status.February 17, 2016 at 7:46 pm #4141393
