                  Called on 2/15 for an update – My docs were received, they asked some verification information and approved the refund.
                  Checked FTB Account yesterday and I could see that my refund was processed and I had a credit for the refund amount on my account, but I could not track it.
                  Tracked the refund this morning and it finally says it was authorized on 2/16!
                  Hope you all get your updates soon.

                    Filed 1/26 though FTB site.
                    Called on 2/5 for an update – I was told it was still processing
                    Called on 2/6 for an update – Same
                    Called on 2/14 for an update – Was told I needed to verify my income with a W-2 or check stub and send in a copy of my ID. I faxed over all the copies the same day.

                    #4530029 Reply

                      I called in 2/15 and it was manually processed.. still shows processing on 2/16. Called again today (2/16) and the gentleman confirmed it was processed, and said it can take up to 14 days to reflect as processed and issue a payment to me.

                      More hurry up and wait..

                        How long after you guys phoned in did it take for the tracker to show your refund as approved?

                        #4529889 Reply

                          Bob’s great, helpful advice I called and it was processed the same day.

                            Called the number that Bob suggested and – the woman on the phone was SOOOOOO helpful and processed my return as we spoke on the phone. There was a notice that was supposed to be sent out to me to verify some information (change in filing status from prior year) but the notice was never mailed according to their system. Everything is handled now.

                              Hi. I have been stuck at “processing” since 1/28/2023. I called the FTB at (916) 845-7088( option 1) and the nice gentleman pushed my return on through after asking me some identifying questions. I was nice and asked him if everything is okay with my return. I believe that helped. FYI

                                Ftb site issued refund on 2/1, received in check mail today 2/11. Filed hrblock with fees taken out preference DD to emerald card.

                                  It’s definitely going slow this year. I called FTB to double check if there were any errors with my return , and they stated it was still processing.

                                  #4528508 Reply

                                    We always got our state deposit 7 days after accepted. Not this year. Still says processing and wait 1 month. My daughter’s Godmother filed 2 days after us and got paid last Friday.
                                    Used Turbo Tax as usual, same bank, same job, same dependents.

                                      FTB showed Issued on 1/31, but my refund didn’t hit my account until 2/4. I bank with BofA, so 3-4 business days after the issue date seems accurate, seems faster for those who bank with Wells Fargo.

                                      #4528417 Reply

                                        I filed 1/19, got accepted 1/21. Still processing with 1 month message.

                                        I called yesterday (2/2) and the woman said I had no offsets and no information to verify.. that sometimes it takes a full 14 working days for them to process it and to just wait it out.

                                        I’m just kind of confused on why I’m STILL processing when people who have filed after me have processed and gotten ddd/refunds… :(

                                          My refund was approved 2/1 and I have current pre paid account it says issued 2/1 does that mean it’ll be transferred would it state if it had been applied to a debt? I don’t think I have any liens in california but I have always got it 24 hours after it said refund processed but it’s been over 2 days now and nothing has hit my account

                                          #4528346 Reply

                                            I filed on 1/26 via the FTB website because turbo tax rejected my state due to a glitch in their software that I spent 3 hours on the phone with them trying to correct. Anywho, anyone ever file directly through ftb?

                                            I filed for my granny using turbo tax a few days after and her refund has already been approved.

                                            Does the ftb site take longer?

                                              @P Anne – mine and as also issued/authorized on 1/31. I bank with BofA and have my fingers crossed it is in my account in the morning.

                                                      Is the system down?

                                                            @winnermade I have my fee’s taken out every year. I always receive my full state refund and the fee’s taken out of federal. That has been my experience with Turbo Tax.

                                                              So I finally spoke to someone at H&R block that advised me my state will be dispersed from Pathward tomorrow 2/1. I’m not sure if they are taking the fees out of my state or federal since I get mixed answers on that. My state was authorized on 1/26 I’ll update once it hits my Chime.

                                                                      #4528074 Reply

                                                                                    I contacted FTB and they advised the authorization date is not the date the direct deposit was sent. She said it would be sent 7-10 business days from the authorization date. So I assume the guy that stated he received his 2 days after the authorization got lucky.

                                                                                    #4527981 Reply

                                                                                      #4527905 Reply

                                                                                          I haven’t been able to track my refund yet.
                                                                                          I also realized I didn’t include my middle class tax refund amounts, will this affect my refund processing?

She asked me a few questions (personal info, employer and the bank my DD was being sent to) and afterwards said that she processed my refund and I should receive an update with a DDD. I’ll provide an update with any changes. *End of

I just called and they said they were able to push my return thru. They did say the direct deposit will take up to one month to receive. I hope that not the case. Thanks again.

Ask the representative to review your return. I had to fax in information and within 2 days I called back to the same number and the rep “pushed through” my tax return and CA FTB refund site updated to “refund issued” around 11:30pm the same day.

I called today and they said I need to wait a month. What is this “push” people are calling to get? Any ideas on how I can get my refund processed and issued?
