Still showing pending on mine also. E-filed on Mar 1st and already got my fed refund! What is going on with Louisiana????March 11, 2015 at 7:53 pm #4110070
What does it mean when my refund status changed to “the original refund has been changed and I will receive a letter”? Why would my refund change!?August 11, 2014 at 2:20 pm #24205
We did our taxes through Turbo Tax in February. Still says pending on their website. It’s alright for them to keep our money, but if we are 1 day late we get to pay a penalty. What’s fair about that?April 23, 2014 at 8:52 am #22360
We still haven’t got our money. We got the child care letter and faxed the woman that day and on the website all it says we have recieved your stuff buts it’s still pending… this is total BS. We want our money!!!!!!!April 20, 2014 at 9:23 pm #22314
I filed both my boyfriend and my own on the LA revenue website on the same day. Mine says pending approval, his says received but not completed, whats the difference???April 19, 2014 at 6:39 am #22296
I’m STILL waiting on my state return. I filed with Turbotax online (which I’ve done for the past several years). Both were accepted on Feb. 4th and I received my federal back 10days later. Just kept waiting on state until I got a letter from the LDR on March 10 saying that my return had been pulled for review because of my child care credit (which I was denied for the previous year and just wasn’t sure why so I let it go) and could take up to 90days to be resolved. (This entire time my status on the LDR website was “received but processing has not been completed”). At the beginning of April I checked the website and my status had changed to “pending approval”, that same day I had a letter in my mailbox saying I was again this year denied the child care credit and they needed me to send them the information from my child care provider. I faxed it to her that day along with the same information from the year before, assuming that’s why I was denied then also. Checked the website again that evening and my status had changed back to “received but processing not completed”.
On the 15th I got a letter from them again saying I was denied and my return had been adjusted to deduct the child care credit. In the mailbox was also a certified slip, picked up that letter from the post office which was the same letter in a diff format and wording. The odd thing about those is that I received both on the 15th. Both were stamped at the post office on the 14th but one letter was dated the 15th and one the 16th. How did you type these letters 2 days after you mailed them? Crazys! But I thought, ok, whatever, I’ll just wait for whatever I’m getting back. I decided to give them a call on the 17th just to check. She informs me that the adjusted amount should be deposited the following day and that she also approved my child care credit for 2013 and 2012 and those amounts should be deposited in 8 to 10 business days, which I’m so excited about but am so confused bc I keep getting these letters saying I’m denied.
Check my account today, the following day, still not there. Check the website and it says it was deposited. Ahhhhh!
Louisiana needs to get it together!! I didn’t spend relying on that but the extra wouldn’t hurt.March 31, 2014 at 6:32 pm #21886
They deducted 1200.00 from my Federal return due to “unpaid” taxes in 2011. Which is crap because I’ve never not received a refund. Turns out the program I used only sent in my federal that year. Anyway, I filed on February 2, 2014 and it was accepted within a few days (by both)
I called the 2.5 weeks ago and was told that I should have received the “90 day” letter, as well. That the money they deducted would also be returned to me (because I went ahead and finished the return for 2011. In addition to that, I would also be getting an additional $90.00 for my 2011 return. However, the reimbursement along with the $90 would only be sent out after my 2013 refund was approved/sent out for payment.
Last week the status of my refund went from ” has been received but processing has not been completed.” to “pending approval” and today when I checked on it, it was back at “has been received but processing has not been completed.”
Anyone else ever hear of something like that happening? ((insert angry face))March 20, 2014 at 12:20 pm #21509
I filed my simple return with Louisiana and it was accepted on 2/4/2014. I have still not heard anything on my return and when i check the website it says return recieved but processing not complete. It has said the same thing for weeks. Sadly when i called them the girl i talked to was just as cluless as i was and was no help at all. All she could tell me was my account looked in order…..ummmm ok thanks for that info Louisiana…..seriously annoyed…shh!!March 19, 2014 at 4:02 pm #21484
My boyfriend received his on Friday. When we checked the status it said his had been mailed on the 3rd. I filed before him but when I check my status it still says processing has not yet been completed. I filed in January, got accepted on Feb. 4th so it’s been over a month I have been waiting. I did a simple return. No kids, property or money owed so I have not clue what is taking so long smhMarch 19, 2014 at 10:42 am #21474
I receied the same under review letter and get to wait 90 days.
We really don’t have much we claim other than small children, home interest/taxes, a small dividends and interest.
At first I thought I must be being audited by thestate (federal sent me my dd within two weeks of filing) but now I’m wondering if it’s their software and them being backed up.
Last year I remembered I had to call multiple times and got the we’re backed up response and waited two months.March 17, 2014 at 1:00 pm #21409
Nope, I can’t wait to move to TEXAS next year.March 17, 2014 at 12:24 pm #21408
received the dreaded letter,
Dear Louisiana Taxpayer”
We have received your 2013 individual income tax teturn. your return has been selected for review. Ath this time, no action is required on your part. Our system reviews each income tax teturn prior to issuing a refund. This review detects errors and or credit claimed which require appropriate documentation. In addition, the review process saves La taxpyers millions of dollars each year in refunds that should not be paid, It is the goal of the department to complete thie review process within 90 days from the date of this letter. Please allow the allotted 90 for the review of your return. If additional documentationin is needed, you will be contacted.
Thank you for your patience
Lousiiaia dept of rev
will they pay interest for the 90 days?March 17, 2014 at 11:07 am #21399
I am beyond annoyed we are still waiting and filed with freetaxusa which we always do. We are broke right now and can’t pay bills waiting on the dang state tax. It says the same thing you guys have said. We sent it in on Feb 1st!!!!!March 17, 2014 at 8:10 am #21389
I efiled using turbot tax and was sent to Louisiana at the beginning of February. It was received and processing is still not completed. My status changed from received and processing still not complete to pending approval (that showed for about 3 days). It went back to received and processing still not complete. I will call today because I suspect that required documentation is required for credits I filed for.March 15, 2014 at 12:03 am #21358
Joy, I have no childcare, did they send a letter, they told me they did but I have not receivedMarch 14, 2014 at 4:07 pm #21354
Bill, I spoke with a rep and they requested my child care expenses. I had to resend all the documentation in again. This whole process is beyond annoying. My fiances has been “received but still processing” and hasn’t changed status.March 14, 2014 at 1:44 pm #21352

I called yesterday. The rep stated my refund was under review and would take 90 days. My status showed ” has been received and is still processing”.

I filed mine through their website and whenever I call it states that no return has been received for me, but when I log in, it shows that it has been processed. I’m not sure what is going on with them. Hope that helps.February 20, 2014 at 2:59 pm #20892
Has anyone received their Louisiana state 2014 tax refund yet? What is our current status on their website? Mine has been pending approval for a while now.
