    @tara. I was wondering the same thing. Still no online notice for me either.

    #4186063 Reply


    This may be a stupid question, but what is the difference between the audit message and 30 day message? essentially isn’t it the same thing? providing proof of something? Or is it different because of the amount of information you need to supply? I still have no notice in my online account. Wish they would hurry up and tell me what they need!

    I hope mine is as simple as that from what I have been seeing on other sites people who had the Audit message have to send it numerous amount of documents but for people who only had 30 day correspondence & never got the Audit message it’s something simple needed. Keeping my fingers crossed. Keep us updated on the timing of the process.

    I filed on 2/7 got may need further review message on 2/14 went from that to your refund is finished processing, expect correspondence in 30 days on 2/22. Today there was a letter in the mail sent out on 2/16 stating that I had a student loan in default and to clear it up in 30 days, which I paid tonight. I will be calling the student loan center tomorrow so they can notifiy NYS Dept of Taxation so they can update and hopefully update my account on give me a ddd. But what I don’t understand is why when I called on 2/22 the rep that I talked to couldn’t tell me anything when a letter was sent out on 2/16? I hope that’s all they need and they release the funds ASAP!

    [email protected] just curious how long before you got your letter and was it reg mail or online?

    Anyone out there get this 30 day correspondence message and switch to anything else? I’ve had 3 status messages so far. It seems they can’t make up their minds. Wonder if it will change to something else.

    Yea I had the audit message. I just sent the requested information in and the where’s my refund updated right after to we received your response to audit. It will be reviewed within 90 days and we will send you our response in mail. Cases are reviewed in order we received response…..hopefully it doesn’t take that long and there are no more issues.

    #4185789 Reply


    I’d go with the 2nd.😉 So did you have an actual audit message or you’ll receive a letter in 30 days message. I’m trying to figure out what the heck they want from me. lol

    #4185784 Reply

    So I just got my audit letter and they requested a copy of my w2, my kids birth certificates and proof they reside with me. This audit was either caused because I adopted my step daughter this past year and her name change may have thrown a red flag or ny are just a holes.

    I got the need further review message on 2/2 .
    Then return has completed processing letter in 30 days on 2/21.

    Waiting for letter ………..

    I just want to see someone went from letter message to DDD without ever getting a letter.

    #4185702 Reply


    @hm @yd same here been on May require further review since Jan 31, no change. If I was being audited or did require anything further I would imagine they would’ve let me know by now smh I’m hoping this gets sorted out soon.

    #4185689 Reply


    Filed 1/24 ACTC
    It’s been almost 4 weeks on this same message
    “May require further review ”
    Checking my mail everyday no letter


    Yes your giving us hope!

    #4185687 Reply


    You’re giving me some hope!

    #4185665 Reply


    @Yd it went from received refund and it’s processing to it may require further review back to its processing for like 2 weeks.

    #4185647 Reply


    What message did you have before you got your ddd?

    #4185622 Reply


    @sarah sorry you have to go thru this. How long after getting the message did you finally receive letter? Was it online or regular mail. I just want to get this moving.

    #4185618 Reply


    Finally. Filled and accepted on 1/27. Just checked and have ddd 3/2

    #4185609 Reply


    @ Natasha

    I hate to say it but yes, I did get that message. I first got the “return is received and processing…”, then the “refund may take longer than federal…”, then the “letter within 30 days…”, then the audit. I think it switch back to the “refund longer than federal…” at some point, haha, but I can’t remember. I’ve seen posts here that the audit message changed to other things as well. I swear there is no rhyme nor reason to all this. And I wholeheartedly agree, I feel like I’m being punished for my family status and income. I am very careful with money, my children don’t lack for anything, but we fall into this bracket and I feel like I’m being targeted haha.

    #4185602 Reply


    This has got to be the most annoying process ever. Everytime I check my status and see it hasn’t updated I just want to break my phone smh the federal took both my 2015 state and a portion of my federal so now I’m waiting for a refund for the overpayment and this years nys is taking forever, I’ve literally received 2500 of the 9000 that is owed to me from this year and last year

    #4185574 Reply


    I wish they’d tell us what they want. I’ll gladly give it. Let’s just get this moving. Don’t they have bigger fish to fry than people with kids and mortgages and student loans that aren’t raking in the bucks. Lol This is insane.

    #4185553 Reply



    After going thru all the messages I see you actually did get an actual Audit message, and i see some others did as well. Did you ever get the “return is finish processing messaging will get a correspondence in 30 days”? I’m just trying to figure out if there is a difference in what the messages mean. In any case i guess i will start getting my papers together so i can upload them as soon as i get a notice. Keep us posted on how long this process takes. #worsetaxyearever

    #4185497 Reply


    UPDATE: Received the audit letter today…they want to verify I am the mother of my children (11 and 7), verify my income, which also has not changed, and verify student loan interest, which also has not changed…time to gather 3 million documents! Hats off to you NY State, you’re really sniffing out the “fraud.” Edit: I do understand the need to verify but i’m hardly getting a sizeable refund, it just seems that many of use who have had no changes are getting the run around.

    #4185489 Reply


    edit: 1 change, I always file early every year, but this year I filed and was accepted on 2/10.

    #4185483 Reply


    I was audited last year for the 1st time in my 20+ years doing taxes, sent my info in they adjusted my refund and took 75% of it. Filed the same way this year, no changes at all.
    This year accepted on 2/10/17 and it has been on “we have received your return and it is being processed. No further info is available.” Well I just checked at 11:10 and it say it has been processed and a ddd of March 2nd. So 19 days to get my money this year.

    I was praying I din’t get audited again. Good luck to everyone, hope it works out well in the end if you have to wait for a letter. Def’ do everything online as others suggested.

    #4185438 Reply


    @ Natasha-the just told me to count 30 days from when the message of the letter appeared which was 2/21. The could not however give me a time frame on when I would get the letter.
    @ Sharon- I agree they need a better way of doing things. I can not believe they can post a message like that and have no info on it or what its for. ridiculous.

    #4185434 Reply


    Guess I’m the only one who is still on being processed with no further info :(. Getting all my paperwork in order because I’m sure I will be audited. Message has been the same for weeks now.

    #4185405 Reply


    Thanks for the info @jenniferctaylor. I will keep checking the online account for a notice. @tara yea I saw that too. Something tells me that even if they hold it for months we wouldn’t see interest. Lol get it together NY. If they need to send you a message it should be automatic. If they found a problem post it should post to your online account immediately like a bank. They need a better more efficient system. I won’t hold my breath.

    #4185403 Reply


    @Tara They gave you a date as to when your letter will be issued.?

    #4185401 Reply


    I went line by line over my tax returns this year & last year the only change for me was less of a child care credit because my daughter is 14 and does not qualify anymore. If its my little Tuition credit of $200 they can have it. I have no Idea what this 30 day letter is about and why do so many people have it. Someone said maybe they want a copy of your W2 I don’t see why that would be I worked at the same job for 10 years and on top of that MY W2 had the income verification code on it. That is suppose to be used to prove the w2 is legit & correct & is not fraud. They cant want me to ID verify because they ask for the code on the back of your NY state ID/license. I cant figure this one out. I was hoping that once i got my federal It will just change to DDD. I guess not.

    #4185375 Reply


    @Jenniferctaylor- I am right there with you. I have never had this problem with any state before, until I moved here and this is my first year filing. My message as of 2/21 was the 30 day letter. Thank you for the info on the letter uploading to the online account. Here is another ? So on the website it states that if no refund is issued within 45 days they will pay interest….so if they are holding my refund because of the 30 day letter-will they pay interest on it? My letter date was 2/21 and 45 days from filing would be 3/15…..

    #4184950 Reply


    @sharon Last year I saw a message for a letter on the 1st of February, by February 10th, the letter was viewed online, I didn’t receive a letter until almost a month later and by that time my refund was already being processed for a refund so don’t wait for it in the mail, view it online and correspond ONLINE, its way faster, ill give from the middle to the end of March to have your money if not sooner. But the entire process from sending the document to it being reviewed took 1 week and maybe 2 weeks after to receive my refund

    #4184901 Reply


    I received this message on Tuesday morning. Hopefully no audit. I had last year and it was not a stroll in the park. I’m sorry to hear about it. Tax time seems to be especially stressful this year.

    #4184803 Reply


    first off i want to let out my frustrations on this site and the fact i have to scroll allllllllll the way down in order to post a comment….yea…thanks for that extra work. secondly as of 2/22 i am still on may require further review and all i can find on other blogs and sites is it can end two ways…processed and refund or 30 day message, im hoping on the first option cause at this point whatever they would have wanted shouldve been announced by now. ive seen dd for 2/28 and 3/1 for nys refunds, some whom had this same message but for a short period of time. in a way im at ease its still on review and not no damn 30 day correspondance, but im afraid the long this drags on. the longer itll then take to receive a letter and then start from scratch…BY THE WAY TO THOSE OF YOU AWAITING A LETTER, IT TAKES ABOUT 10 DAYS FROM THE MESSAGE FROM THE LETTER TO GENERATE IN YOUR ONLINE ACCOUNT, I KNOW THIS FROM EXPERIENCE. THE LETTER WILL SHOW WITHIN A WEEK ONLINE AND ABOUT 2-3 WEEKS TO RECEIVE BY MAIL.

    #4185285 Reply


    Ugh! I am still at “may require further review”. Federal DD was for 2/22. Accepted on 1/28. It isn’t like it is a whole lot of money either :( It just seems this year, I need it badly. I know a lot of you are in the same boat. It just stinks!

    #4185253 Reply


    Morning all! Still have the audit message, still have not received a letter, has anyone with this message received a letter yet!?! NY I’ll give ya whatever you want but HELP ME, HELP YOU!

    #4185185 Reply


    Filed on 1/23
    May require further review.. ( forever)
    Received and being processed
    We received yur return and its being processed (yesterday)
    Today I woke up to a message that i will recieve correspondence within 30 days…. Also still waiting for ddd on federal…..!

    #4184883 Reply


    @jenniferctaylor I forgot to ask. How long did your whole process take, and you did receive a letter? 30 days seems like a long time. I keep checking the online account and no messages have shown up yet

    #4184880 Reply


    @julie mine switched from may require further review, to received and being processed, then 12 hours later to it’s finished processing and you will receive correspondence within 30 days. I have no clue. I hate NYS.

    @jenniferctaylor trust me I hear you. I needed this money like yesterday. My husband was laid off a few weeks ago and mortgage tuition payment and it seems like every other bill in the world is due next week. It’s the only reason I filed so early and here I am with both federal and state held up. I’ve never needed the money before and have always gotten my refund within 3 weeks at the latest. Figures. 😡

    #4184871 Reply


    @julie I think your in the clear if you haven’t received any other message by now, just waiting for approval and refund date, keep us posted

    #4184855 Reply


    So the message switching back to “we received your return and it is being processed” could still mean an audit?

    #4184851 Reply


    @sharon I’m 100% sure it’s something so small that will be resolved, the 30 day message is not an audit message, it means something was missing to complete the return, happened to me before, I had to send my sons birth certificate before and I kept close contact with the person reviewing my file, received it very very shortly afterwards cause they assign someone to your case, I wouldn’t worry, I’m just concerned cause I don’t have time to wait, I need to move asap and I’m counting on that money and not knowing the outcome gives me so much anxiety

    #4184835 Reply


    [email protected] that does not make me feel better. They are sending me a letter. Lol some people have gotten an actually audit message. I think, I hope, I know what the problem is with mine since federal flagged me for a name change, I’m hoping it’s just that. The way my luck is going and the amount of times my status message has changed I’m sure I’ll wake up to the audit message now. ;)

    #4184811 Reply


    this is what i was able to find regarding the message
    1. It means nothing. Just needs an actual person to OK the return. System flagged. If you were audited it would of said a letter will be sent. FYI I always got mine in 30 days after filing.
    2.they were manually reviewing returns and that’s what the hold up is.

    still can go either way if they want to FIND a reason to hold on to the refund

    #4184784 Reply


    Nys what’s going on ???
    1/24 filed accepted 1/25 ACTC
    I created an online account as well No messages there either!

    Still stuck on “may require further review ”
    Smh this is frustrating

    Fed DDD 2/23 thank god

    #4184676 Reply


    I filed NY state return on 2/16 it was accepted on 2/17.. Had the processing message up until a hour ago (2/22 7pm EST) now its says your return has completed processing letter within 30 days .. Pretty sure its was for my offset . now they don’t have to offset my federal

    #4184672 Reply


    @natasha. This is ridiculous. He didn’t see any letters to go out on mine either. Just read me exactly what was on my status. I created an online account. No messages there either. I asked him about that and he said he didn’t know and didn’t know how long it would be to show up if there is to be a letter sent. Our tax dollars at work. Why do they even employ people to answer the phone if they can’t answer anything. So frustrating!!

    #4184646 Reply


    @Julie when I called the rep said ” let me see what date they are mailing out your correspondence letter”. A few seconds letter “oh that’s strange you don’t have a date for a letter to be issued” 🤦🏽‍♀️Idk what’s going on or how long it will be. This is so annoying.

    #4184630 Reply


    Has anyone gotten an actual answer or suspected date for their review to be finished from the call center?

    #4184486 Reply


    im still on further review message, no update as of yet as well. this is depressing already. smh told everyone goes threw review at some point….idk whats taking so damn long, im on day 25 week 3, maybe itll come on week 4. federal came and went as fast as it was deposited
