    No, the FTB has no record and said my taxes were not submitted. I went ahead and filed through the FTB and got an automatic acceptance email with a confirmation number.

    For those of you saying your state hasn’t been accepted yet might be because some of your forms aren’t ready yet. I already filed but my state hasn’t been accepted yet because all of my forms aren’t ready yet. Hope that helps 😊

    @auttib i just called the state they have no record of my return still :(
    they told me to call H and R block and have them resubmit the taxes. so im going to call again, i spent over 5 hours on the phone with them last week. Did the state show record of your taxes?

    #4252303 Reply



    Call the FTB. The kind woman I spoke to said they did not get any hRBlock state returns until 1/19, any submitted before that we’re not transmitted, with the exception of a very select few.

    @TK1019 I’m in the same boat. I files before you on 1/12 and both systems say they don’t show my return. I didn’t file through turbo tax though. It’s very frustrating…..

    @Cali Gurl

    My IRS was accepted on 1/15 or 1/16 I believe. It wasn’t fast like it usually is.

    @auttib I also filed on 1/12 and neither the FTB or the IRS website have a record of my return. Not sure what is going :-(

    #4252154 Reply


    Filed 1/12. Still not accepted. Same thing happened last year when I used HRBlock. I’m going to have to call the state on Tuesday.

    #4252126 Reply


    Website says CA intercepted $0.00 and it was issued but no issue date. Any ideas on what’s going on.

    #4252103 Reply


    @mike: I hope you get some answers soon. I filed with Taxslayer for the second year in a row and they have been good. I haven’t used HR for about 10 years, they always charged too much.

    #4252101 Reply


    @Cali Gurl: I filed with Taxslayer. I couldn’t believe it either. I logged into my bank account to check something else and I seen a deposit from Franchise Tax Board, I was like wtf? Lol. Cali is on it!😁 Hope you get yours soon too.😊

    #4252087 Reply


    I filled on 1/15/19 and was accepted the same day. The state website says it was issued on 1/16/19 but I haven’t received my deposit in my account yet.

    #4252074 Reply


    r8rflores they state says they have no record of my return. This happened last year and they had to resubmit for me to get it processed. H and r keeps giving me different answers. They started a case for they hold then when I call back they have no record of case and say I need to call the state it’s there issue not h and r blocks

    @r8rflores Did you file with HR Block? I filed a day before you did. Crazy how you got your state back so quick. I guess California is on it this year.

    We filed with Turbo Tax on 1/8. Ca refund was accepted, processed, and issued on 1/15. It’s 1/18 and still nothing in our bank account. Hoping it’ll be here sometime today.

    #4251950 Reply


    My Cali state taxes were accepted the 1/15 and 1/16 showed that refund was received, processed and issued 1/16 and should expect it as usual. Their site says direct deposit takes up to 10 days but I seem to remember it coming a lot sooner.

    #4251948 Reply


    Mike, I just called because I was getting an error msg on both state and federal wmr. No help from IRS but did get a service rep from Cali and they said all went through and approved but recent hasn’t been scheduled yet and to expect my DD within the next 2-3 weeks. Last year similar situation and I received it on the 25th of January

    #4251926 Reply


    Ok i filed with h and r block, they said it went through and state has no record of it, they tried to tell me that california has not started to process returns yet but i called the state and the woman had no record of my taxes and said it would be processed, do you have a date for your Ca refund.

    #4251914 Reply


    Mike, yes it was accepted already. I filed through TT my federal was accepted a day earlier than the state. Now its updated to the processing tab on CA ftb wmr

    #4247857 Reply


    Sent in a paper form from overseas, due to have a large refund direct deposited to BofA. Sent on 14 April, logged in as received by FTB 30 April. May 31 (dated) paper letter sent saying there had been an error (in my favor) on the form, & that they were sending a check. Letter arrived 6 June. Check arrived 8 June and now has to be sent back to the USA to deposit to BofA. What in the world? This was supposed to be a direct-deposit refund!

    #4247718 Reply


    916-845-7088, then choose option 2, then choose option 1, finally choose option 0
    Worked for me and they said you will receive your refund in 2-3 weeks.
    Very nice person.

    #4246701 Reply


    Update: I just called the 9168457088 number I found on this site. And they received everything and processed it over the phone. She said direct deposit takes 2-4 weeks but more like 2. Thank you for the helpful information here.

    #4246688 Reply


    Filed last week of Jan. Received federal refund promptly. Now May 14th and state is still processing. I sent in extra paperwork to verify our identies ect. Say 2 months from date those papers were sent which would be the 23rd of this month. So we’ll see. Really ridiculous since I filed last year and my son was on that tax return to and we haven’t moved or anything.

    #4245855 Reply


    If my refund status says “Issued,” does that mean my return was accepted as submitted and I should expect the refund indicated on my return? I did my taxes myself and I’m sure I did them accurately, but just nervous. I filled pin 4/17, It moved to issued on Friday, 4/27.

    Filed thru Jackson HEWITT online, I was excepted on 4/4/2018 from state and fed. My state refund says issued on 4/9/2018 but Republic Bank has no record of my social security number. Have been just trying run around. No one can help me.

    #4244338 Reply


    Same here, Heidi, I e-filed my return on 2/22/18, and as of today, it’s still in the RECEIVED mode on my Calif. FTB account. I’ve been using the secure chat feature and have been told that it still needs to get processed and there’s no indication of any errors on my return. Then on 3/26/18, via chat again, the FTB rep said since it’s been over four weeks, he’ll request priory processing, but it’s still stuck in the RECEIVED mode when I last checked today….so frustrating!

    #4244278 Reply


    I e-filed my State income tax return in late February. It was accepted immediately and has been in processing ever since (April 11). No word from anyone and trying to reach them via phone (the 916 number) is impossible. I guess we all have to be patient until the end of April.

    #4241524 Reply


    My state was issued on February 27 I opted for a direct deposit but I haven’t received it yet as of today 3/21/18 should I be worried I know all my banking information is correct because I already received my irs taxes ….who else is still waiting for there money state is taking forever

    #4240993 Reply


    Number I listed can also be found at the CA State website. I was able to find it from the TurboTax message boards and people were extremely successful getting their refunds released using that number (916-845-7088). It’s a different rep from the customer service number and looks like they have more access.

    #4240991 Reply


    Hey everyone, I had he same issues as some of you. I filed Feb 11 2018 and received by DD from Federal. State was taking a long time and had to call after waiting a month. Called rep and said to wait 2-3 months from filing for it to finish. Waited a week or so again until I found this number 916-845-7088 ( pressed option 2 and then 3) and was able to speak with a rep. She said that I had to verify and was able to do it over the phone. Needed DL, social , and current/previous address. She was able to release it, and checked the ca tax board website status and it finally says released! hope this helps. Good luck.

    #4240989 Reply


    Filed federal and state via Turbotax on Feb 27, 2018.
    Received acceptance notification that night for both.

    IRS took underpaid money on March 1 (efficient!).

    Checked “Where’s my refund?” on March 4 and it said “PROCESSING.”
    Checked again on March 8 and it still said “PROCESSING.”

    Then I checked on March 12 and it said my information was not available.
    Same on March 13.
    On March 14, it was back and the status was “ISSUED.”

    Received refund via DD on March 17 (a Saturday).

    Good luck out there.

    I filed my state taxes 2/26, and I have not received my taxes. I checked on the site and it still showed it was being processed. today I got an error message saying the information I entered is incorrect I need to speak with a representative. has anyone experienced that?

    #4240267 Reply


    My California state refund was authorized March 2nd, and as of today March 16th I have not received anything. I know all my banking info is correct becauze i already received my federal. Is anyone else experiencing this long delay in cali deposits? Are they broke this year or what…

    I am furious with tax return situation this year. Never had any issues, this year absolute disaster. My fed DD arrived on Feb 23rd. They have miscalculated something and am waiting for the letter to contest. Now….Cali one…OMG….it shows issued on 23rd, where is my money? no sign. I filed by paper. Did the same last year and asked for DD. Last year …no issue. This year…..nothing. I have called a few times and they keep saying mo ey is gone to your bank….we don’t have it. Well if it has…where is my money?

    #4238648 Reply


    I Filed both my Federal and State of California on February 2, 2018. I received my federal return DD the next week. The state still has my return in processing, that is as of today March 11, 2018. I have talked to an actual person at the FTB on the phone. They had to call me back almost three hours later. They informed that the FTB has up until April 15, 2018, to get my return back to me. Another BS move by the great state of California! Does anyone else have the same issue?

    #4238306 Reply


    Filed. 2/9 both Federal and State accepted same day.
    Already receive DD for federal.
    02/27 received Issue date for state.
    Called a few days later and they said i have an offset. Offset letter and check both came in the mail today 3/09.
    Hope this helps someone.
    Good luck everyone

    I don’t understand why CA refund is taking time after approval. ACH shouldn’t take more than 1-3 days max. Do they have money to pay?
