Filed 1/29 with TT
I have tried online and with the automated system, and nothing as of yet. The automated system after i enter my info,directs me to 2014 taxes. i have a feeling that means they have not started to process yet.
impatiently waiting..February 12, 2016 at 2:02 pm #4138778
Filled via TT on 2/6 8:23 PM and Accepted 2/7 9:33 PM, I’m trying to check my refund status but without success.
I don’t know if they are slower than the IRS, but, they don’t show any information yet.

ALWAYS SOMETHING WITH THE STATE OF NJ….August 4, 2015 at 1:18 pm #4112678
Filed my NJ Income tax in March Received a letter requiring a repeat of the information that was sent in march by my accountant . Sent this information ( o h yes we had a dead line to sent that as the 30th of the month) . I have looked on the web site and of course we still are not approved . Called the number 609 292 6400.
and got the message not to inquire for 90 days after the additional paperwork was sent in. There was nothing wrong with our return !!! they never addressed it for 3 months and now we are waiting another 90 days for information!!!!!!!!!July 23, 2015 at 10:51 pm #4112641
I filed my state tax in nj in February and it’s now July 23rd and I haven’t received my return as yet. Whenever I do on online inquiry I get that stupid stale message that says it’s received but not yet approved. In all my years of filing taxes this is my first time in this predicament. Yet still the state can send my dad a mail bothering him to pay his money for what he owes the state. Get off my dad’s back and send me my money. This is a joke. The state can’t pay out but is quick to collect. Yes, please don’t ask my dad for any payment when u owe me mine. Shame on you NJ. I guess I will be receiving last year and this year together.July 21, 2015 at 9:33 am #4112629
This is really bad. I have ALWAYS owed in state and federal taxes. I filed this year for several years based off of a letter Taxation sent to me. I am owed money. I personally went down to the Taxation Division in May of 2015 and as of right now July 2015. There is nothing. Whenever you owe they are really quick with sending out the letter. But apparently not with paying it out and that in itself is a huge problem. Not good NJ…Not good…June 10, 2015 at 3:17 pm #4112374
I filed my nj taxes in February and I still havent received my refund. I called a month ago and was told my information would be expedited for review. It now June 10th and the rep. tells me it will take an additional 45 days for review. I told her did our fine governor need to review it for approval. UNREAL. Asked to talk to supervisor and got the run around. Folks call 609-292-6400 and demand immediate action towards your return.May 24, 2015 at 11:07 am #4111936
How do you think Christie is gonna pay for his presidential run, Hun? He’s not gonna use his money…May 21, 2015 at 11:32 am #4111924
I filed my return on Feb 6, 2015 and haven’t received a refund yet. You are absolutely right if we owed money they would definitely charge penalties. I tell you what the problem is the government is spending up our tax dollars on their life styles ect……Taking away from the less fortunate, but yet always crying broke which is a bunch of bull! They are constantly raising taxes and tolls. Where is all of that money going?May 16, 2015 at 1:10 pm #4111882
I filed by the end of January, got accepted and as of today May 16th, the NJ website say they received my return but have not yet approved a refund for me. They owe around 4000 USD. I really need my money back, is there anyway yo bring this up to the media? or something else to pressure them? This is unacceptable!May 13, 2015 at 9:22 am #4111844
My taxes were filed on 2/23/15 and as of today, May 13 I have not yet received my refund. I agree that when money is owed to NJ (which I have owed them for most of my years of working and filing taxes) they will add penalties and interest when the money is delayed. However in reading a previous post, the response from NJ tax rep., there is no time limit on processing refunds. So my wait is without penalty or interest paid, but my delay in payment is…REALLY?!!!! NJ…!!!May 6, 2015 at 1:16 pm #4111749
Filed my taxes – I owed NJ $591 from 2013 which I wanted to offset with my 2014 taxes – NJ owes ME 1240 this year
Filed on February 4-
Instead of processing my return and sending me the money they owed me (I would have gotten $649 back with the offset from the State of New Jersey) — They notified the IRS of the 2013 tax and took the money from my Federal Refund
So now they took the money from 2013 and have continued to delay the processing of my State Tax Return-
After spending 2.5 hours on the phone waiting for a rep from NJ I was told my refund is still being processed and because the refund wasn’t processed yet they took the offset from my federal
My (reasonable) question- When will my refund be processed- the answer- there is no time limit on processing- My response- OK so I should expect the refund back around 2020 – her answer- there is no time limit on processing. My answer- OK so I assume you will be paying me interest on the money you owe me – her answer- it doesn’t work that way there is no time limit on processing of refunds and we don’t pay interest on it
BUT they charged me interest on the 2013 money I owed (it was about $100 with penalties that I was charged from April 2014- May 2015)
And now with the preliminary audits for people claiming EIC they are taking an additional 90 days to process AFTER they receive the requested paperwork back- which I was told the notice could take up to 90 days to get to me from the time I filed- THIS AMOUNTS TO A MINIMUM OF A 6 MONTH DELAY if you filed EIC
Verification of the child I claim on my taxes every year that was born in the State of New Jersey and goes to school in the State of New Jersey? Verification of my employment which they have W-2’s for? I am not really getting what they are attempting to verify since all of this information is readily available to them –
They have no problem expediting the processing of the returns with money due and taking it- and they have NO problem processing the request for the IRS offset the Federal refund – IT SEEM the only issue they are having are processing the refunds that they have to GIVE taxpayers backMay 5, 2015 at 5:39 pm #4111734
It’s May 5th and I filed on February 1st. …no correspondence at all.
My best friend has been dealing with this for the third year, now. However, they ask her to identify herself and her son only (different last names) but they continue to do it each year so far. I do believe that it’s going to be at least July 1st before some of us get a refund, when the new fiscal year begins.
A few people I know got theirs in early April…April 30, 2015 at 9:16 pm #4111658
Still waiting on my refund and am seeing the 5 week processing time. The real kicker: I filed both my taxes and my boyfriend’s taxes on the same day. He owed NJ a small amount and the state withdrew the money in less than 2 weeks. Quick to take, but not to give?April 29, 2015 at 4:00 pm #4111637
I did my taxes on Turbo Tax on 2/13 and received my federal within 10 days. I still have not received my NJ taxes yet. Someone told me today that we might not receive them until October. When I spoke to someone they gave me no information except that electronic filing is taking longer this year due to fraud. I am so upset cause I really need this money to get my car fixed. It would be nice if they could give us some kind of information.April 27, 2015 at 1:15 pm #4111599
I filed and was accepted January 21. It is now April 27 and still processing. No letter, nothing. When I can get through to talk to someone I just get told people who used TurboTax are experiencing delays due to fraud. It’s been over 3 months. This is nuts. My federal was approved and disbursed to me in less than 2 weeks.April 22, 2015 at 11:29 pm #4111492
Filed my taxes on Jan 31 is now April 22 and still have not received my refund even after sending additional information. When you call the NJ tax office they can give no information when it will be processed.April 22, 2015 at 11:10 pm #4111491
I e-filed on 2/16 and the state return was accepted on 2/17… Here it is 4/22… More than two months later… And it says it has been received, but they’re still processing it! I’m starting to worry! I used Tax Act to file my taxes… Smh… I’m so confused…April 15, 2015 at 1:48 pm #4111367
I received my federal tax refund end of February but haven’t received anything by mail in regards to my state tax refund & its April 15, 2015..April 3, 2015 at 10:47 am #4111064
NJ state return accepted on 2/18/15…as of today 4/3/15 still in processing….also a week ago or so they changed the 3 week processing message on the website to 5 weeks. Its now been 6 weeks.April 3, 2015 at 4:40 am #4111057
My New Jersey state refund was accepted February 22, 2015 does anybody have any idea when I will receive my direct deposit?April 2, 2015 at 6:41 am #4110968
I filed on Jan 30, got my federal in less than two weeks. Took until the end of feb for the NJ refund site to say it had received it and it is now April 1st and I havent recieved any letter asking for more info and it still only says were processing your refund.March 18, 2015 at 7:12 pm #4110439
I filed electronically both my federal and state were accepted on Jan 26. Received my federal within a week. NJ still no refund. From Jan 26 till Feb 27 online refund status said no record on file. But yet I have email that says it was accepted . On Feb 27 it updated to that my refund was being processed. It has stayed on that since. As of today March 18 it still says the same thing. My son filed 2 weeks after me and has gotten both back already. I haven’t gotten anything in the mail requesting info. from me. I emailed them and they cant give me any info. I was pretty abrupt in the email. You go onto the online inquiry and they say that electronically filed emails are processed with in 3 weeks. I have tried and tried to call but they say due to high volume calls will not be answered thank you and disconnects. Its been 8 weeks this is bull.March 16, 2015 at 8:58 pm #4110342
Accepted via turbotax on Jan30…recieved my federal in first week of Feb…mid Feb my status on the nj portal finally went from ‘no record found’ to ‘still processing your refund’…it has stayed stuck on this ‘processing’ status ever since. The inquiry phone number is ALWAYS unable to accept calls due to heavy call volume, and the automated phone system also just says ‘still processing’. I’ve never seen a better example of government inefficiency in my life.
Can’t call, website terrible, no recourse but to just wait. This is a terrible state and I can’t wait to move to PA.March 14, 2015 at 10:43 pm #4110256
The website updated for me today, ddd for 3/19March 14, 2015 at 9:34 am #4110216
Mine was accepted around 1/28 and Still “processing” not approved for refund yet. My friend sent hers 2 weeks after me and got a notice that they need more info, blah blah, blah… Did anyone get their refund yet??March 9, 2015 at 12:57 pm #4109928
I haven’t gotten my either called the 800 number and got told processing and thats all they
told me. when i asked why so long since it was sent electronically they had no answer and
when i asked about looking into it they could/would not look into iMarch 3, 2015 at 11:37 pm #4109588
I filed on 1/23, accepted on 1/26. It’s been over 5 weeks and still not approved. I’ve heard a few people who have received theirs but not one of them used Turbo Tax.March 2, 2015 at 2:50 pm #4109420
I filed my NJ return on 01/28 via TT and was accepted the next day. The NJ website JUST updated around 02/20 to show that my return was being processed, but I have yet to hear anything since. I haven’t received anything in the mail either, so I hope that’s a good thing. Unless there’s a problem, I’ve always gotten my state exactly 3 weeks AFTER I get my federal refund. It has been longer than that by now, obviously. I thought I read that another poster around here said that because of the TT fraud thing that processing was taking up to an additional 2 weeks for NJ? Hopefully that means us early birds will get our money within the next week or so.March 2, 2015 at 8:33 am #4109386

Smh I am glad I am not the only one waiting for NJ…February 11, 2015 at 7:08 am #4105798
Still no refund information here either. ‘Accepted’ by NJ per Tax Act on January 21st. Nothing is updated on the NJ status site and nothing is updated at the phone number. Received my Federal refund last Thursday (2/5).February 8, 2015 at 2:26 pm #4104312
Yea mine is still saying NO INFORMATION FOUND! Last Year it took about 15 days so it SEEMS like the earliest for a NJ refund will be around Feb 14th-18thFebruary 7, 2015 at 10:32 pm #4104170
the page says ‘info not found ‘for me … last year i got mine the first week of MarchFebruary 2, 2015 at 9:26 pm #4100011
@ljenk1216, NJ started processing on Feb. 1? How long does nj take to process refunds?February 2, 2015 at 8:41 pm #4099979
I was wondering the same thing until I called the 800#. Both the site and phone info are still referencing the 2013 tax year. I thought I misheard when prompted to enter the dollar amount for my 2013 return. Yes, 2013. I went back and found the 2013 amount, called again and sure enough there was my information. And because I’m hardheaded I figured I’d check the site and use the 2013 amount… yep.February 2, 2015 at 8:48 am #4099483
New jersey did not begin processing until feb 1st.February 2, 2015 at 8:25 am #4099466
I was accepted on Jan 21st and the system STILL has no information! Anyone else having this issue or are you able to see when you are getting your refund?
