@coco. I can help you, but first a few Q’s. Have you finished processing yet? Does your status on the ftb site have a dd issue date yet? Answer tbose and ill get back to you asap🌞February 9, 2018 at 3:12 pm #4211524
So basically after a review and they process you, how long is the actual wait, they say two to four weeks but who can tell me their experience?February 9, 2018 at 3:05 pm #4211522
@wishingonastar Thanks!! I wont spend it one place…but those darn bills and the kids get all my .money!! LolFebruary 9, 2018 at 3:02 pm #4211520
Now I can say congrats!!!!!
Don’t spend it all at once!! :-)February 9, 2018 at 2:48 pm #4211505
@vee… Mine was issued on the 31st..and the state got me for an offset too. I just got my paper check today. So yours should be in their tomorrow or.monday at the latest.February 9, 2018 at 2:42 pm #4211501
Just wondering if anyone had their state intercepted & how long after did you get your money. I received a letter saying it was intercepted for $40 the rest should DD but nothing yet & funds were issued on the 1st. Maybe I’m inpatient but I’m just curious.February 9, 2018 at 2:36 pm #4211491
Woohoo! My paper check finally came!!!February 9, 2018 at 2:03 pm #4211435
👀 It’s 11 ??? Hope you get it!!!February 9, 2018 at 1:57 pm #4211428
Alright guys. So i filed early on the the 21st. Its been stuck on processing every since then. Finally called the 916 number spoke to a representative today. She verified some questions over the phone and said everything looks good and she would process it thru for me….. But heres the kicker, she said it would take another 2-4 weeks to finish processing… Wtf was it doing when i filed it in the first place… Very frustrating…February 9, 2018 at 1:33 pm #4211399
@wishing on a star. Im wanting a congrats! Lol. My mail comes at 11..so ill be checking then with my fingers crossed!!!February 9, 2018 at 1:07 pm #4211370
Whoops..sorry..I thought you received it already.February 9, 2018 at 1:06 pm #4211364
The horror is over for you! :-)February 9, 2018 at 1:04 pm #4211360
My refund was issued yesterday after talking to another representative. I called twice yesterday. The first person I talked to stated it was waiting final review so I called back later that day and talked to someone else and that person asked me a few questions and pushed it through.
My taxes were accepted on the 19th and finally got pushed through and issued yesterday.
So I would say keep calling if there’s a hold up until someone can specifically tell you what you need to complete your return or someone that is WILLING to push it through.February 9, 2018 at 1:04 pm #4211356
Ok 1/31 dd’rs…lets all the check the mail today and have our check!!!! We need some good news!! Funny how our letters came on time…now we want our moneyyyyyy!!!!February 9, 2018 at 11:32 am #4211174
I also have the error kickback when I go to check now, and was told yesterday that it’s been approved. So I think what the others have said is true, it’s giving the error because it’s been sent.February 9, 2018 at 11:18 am #4211148
If they need you to fax your social security card and you lost yours what can you do? I have my daughters social but I lost mine. I ordered a replacement but who knows how long that’s gonna take.February 9, 2018 at 11:03 am #4211121
@kevin That happened to me right before my status changed to issuedFebruary 9, 2018 at 9:49 am #4210962
So I’ve been able to check daily my refund status but this morning I entered all the correct info required but now its saying its wrong, like my refund amount has changed or something. Has this happened to anyone else?February 9, 2018 at 9:36 am #4210940
2-4 weeks for a DD? That’s ridiculous, I hop I don’t get the same hut with my luck I prolly will. I wonder if they have a reason for a DD to take that long when my brothers check didn’t even take that long to be mailed, I’m hoping it’s sometime today too.February 9, 2018 at 9:16 am #4210890
State received on 1/23, still processing. When I called, they told me I have to wait 12 weeks because it needs “further review” and there is no information that I can give to push it through. 😞February 9, 2018 at 8:59 am #4210850
I am going through the same waiting game. It is discouraging when you see people that filed after you get there deposit in 3 to 5 days.
The rep I spoke with yesterday said 2 to 4 weeks for a DD.
I too have an issue date of 2/1.
Good luck hoping for a DD notification this afternoon.February 9, 2018 at 8:28 am #4210802
I filed on the 01/23 I have 2 dependents so don’t expect anything from federal yet. But I efiled and said it was accepted and approved on the 23 of January I filed w/h&r block. My state was issued on 2/1 and have dd set up and a big fat nothing, I called on Tuesday and the lady (very nice lady btw) said that just bc the ftb sight says issued doesn’t mean it was sent out issued means approved and she also said that it will be sent out for dd on Tuesday and should have it on Thursday…well it’s Friday freaking morning and nothing still.
My brother who efiled a week after I did and who doesn’t when have dd already got his state check… seriously wth! LolFebruary 9, 2018 at 5:52 am #4210621
Website said issued 2/5/18 and just received it dd 2/9 @ 2:30am 😁 Im surprised because I filed my 2015, 2016 & 2017 all on 2/1. The only one I received was 2017 refund…February 9, 2018 at 1:25 am #4210559
Does the shut down affect my DD that was approved Tuesday?????February 8, 2018 at 10:54 pm #4210513
I filed my tax with FTB website on 1/21/2018 and I waited for long time before I call them at (916) 845-7088 on 2/6/2018. It took the call to solved the issue with ID verified. Today with refund issue date 2/7/2018. Please call this number if your return has been awhile since your filed.February 8, 2018 at 9:45 pm #4210479
@vp it just says my refund was issued on 1/31.February 8, 2018 at 9:21 pm #4210477
@waitingncali since you know your refund is coming in the mail has your info changed at all on on the ftb site to check for refund?February 8, 2018 at 8:30 pm #4210435
So what are the odds I called back today and I got the same woman with the thick accent and she remembered me from my call the other day. Had the same issues verifying my address and it seemed like every question I asked she asked right back.
She said i should have my refund in 2 to 4 weeks.
I have an issue date of 2/1 and it is set for DD.
So again I sit and wait.February 8, 2018 at 7:33 pm #4210404
I have been calling all week with different answers. I think I am going to try to wait it out. This is soooooo frustrating.February 8, 2018 at 6:29 pm #4210334
California accepted my tax return back on January 29th and it’s been sitting on the 1 month message saying it could take 1 month to approve my friend sent hers in the same day and got her approval of refund like 2 days later has everyone been moving fairly quickly for the state of California? I’m still sitting on processingFebruary 8, 2018 at 6:19 pm #4210319
Show Me The Money!
@Waitingncali you and me both! I hate snail mail.February 8, 2018 at 5:55 pm #4210254
Have you called or are you just gonna wait it out?February 8, 2018 at 5:48 pm #4210252
I called the letter on my notice and she said its just a timing issue. She said it should come any day now.. Ill continue to check mail with fingers crossed! LolFebruary 8, 2018 at 5:31 pm #4210237
@Waitingncali haven’t checked it yet today! I’ll be checking when I get home in about 4 hours. Hoping we all have good news soon!February 8, 2018 at 5:25 pm #4210229
Filed Feb 4th. Got accepted yesterday. Today the status bar disappeared and was replaced with the “we cannot provide a status for your refund online with the information provided” message and a 800 number to call. Called the number and a nice lady checked and said she could see the amount of my refund had been added to my account but a dd date hadn’t been established yet and that’s probably why I got the message but that everything is ok and should be seeing something no later than a week from now possibly sooner…. 😃February 8, 2018 at 5:05 pm #4210202
👐 Raising hands!!February 8, 2018 at 5:02 pm #4210200
@Tara I had to do same fax items. Friday 2/9 is my 5th day. Hopefully all goes well.February 8, 2018 at 4:48 pm #4210180
Filled on the 21st of January. Still processing. Didn’t even update to show issued??? Anybody in the same slow, painful boat?????February 8, 2018 at 4:41 pm #4210168
I just called FTB since I received a letter in the mail and she told me I’ll get the check 2-4 weeks from the issue date 2/1February 8, 2018 at 3:05 pm #4210035
Have you guys checked the mail today. Im goin to go check mine soon. But hoping one of you got good news first!February 8, 2018 at 2:08 pm #4209931
I have faxed everything a couple of days ago and was told it takes 5 business days for them to review it. Is there something I can do to rush it a little. Been calling everyday and getting the same answerFebruary 8, 2018 at 1:28 pm #4209866
Accepted 1/26 and had been processing since. After a couple calls this week, they requested my 1099-K be faxed in and then was told 8 weeks. They told me this is the actual standard time for a self employed EITC. (Lyft/Uber)
Requested a call back from a supervisor who, while a bit surly, did say that time frame was true. Threw on my nicest customer service voice and asked if there was anything I could do or provide to help it along, which got him to confirm a few more things about proof of payment/my son’s age.
He then processed it and said I should have it within two weeks but to call back if it takes more than 4. The site hasn’t updated yet but I did just hang up with him~
Be EXTRA nice to them when you call, you get results!February 8, 2018 at 11:08 am #4209646
Issued on Feb 2 and still no DD so I called and sure enough I have an offset and the balance will be issued by check. Does anyone know how long it take for a check to come in the mail ? It got mailed out todayFebruary 8, 2018 at 10:37 am #4209595
In my FTB account summary, it shows the amount I’m owed but still only says “received” as the status. Does that mean i’m getting close?February 8, 2018 at 10:34 am #4209588
This is the number I called.
I have an issue date of 2/1 as well.and still no dd.February 8, 2018 at 10:24 am #4209564
Had a issue date of 2/1 and still no DD. What’s the number to see if we have an offset??February 8, 2018 at 10:17 am #4209552
How is everyone checking their status on the website it says it has not been updated since 1/30February 8, 2018 at 9:46 am #4209514
Just giving my info. Filed and accepted 2/1. Had the 1 month message. Decided to not call.
2/2 changed to issued. Deposited today 2/8. Didn’t call, didn’t need to. No paper check. No review.
Now waiting on fed. Good luck everyone.February 8, 2018 at 7:57 am #4209356
Anyone with an issue date of 2/1 get a DD?February 8, 2018 at 4:00 am #4209276
Filed: 1/29 via Turbotax (CA EITC)
CA FTB site never displayed my refund status since filing. It still returns a ‘no refund can be found with the information you’ve provided.’
However, just checked and my refund was received via direct deposit on 2/6.February 8, 2018 at 3:29 am #4209270
Has anyone ever received there federal refund before the IRS wmr updated with a dd date please let me knowFebruary 8, 2018 at 12:19 am #4209234
Yeah….I think you are right. I think I should as well.February 7, 2018 at 11:34 pm #4209214
The first person said nothing needed to be done and when I called today she said they sent me a 4502 letter requesting the information. If I were you I’d just send over a copy of your federal tax return and SS cards.February 7, 2018 at 9:26 pm #4209122
I am sorry to hear that. I guess that’s what I have to do as well cause even though someone stated my taxes were processed, I believe they are still being held up. I talked to one person and she said I need to send in proof of self employment then another person said nothing needs to be done. I think FTB doesn’t know how to implement the new eic for the self employed. I am pretty sure I have to do the same thing as you. :-(February 7, 2018 at 9:15 pm #4209112
They didn’t say anything to me when I first called but when I called back yesterday because I still hadn’t gotten my DD that’s when they told me. I had an issue date of the 31st and all I have received is a notice of what was taken out and by who.February 7, 2018 at 8:37 pm #4209094
I filed on 1/29 and got the 1 month message. I called today and was told since I am self employed I needed to fax over schedule c, se, and f from federal return and SS cards for everybody on taxes. Apparently they have to verify I am self employed even thought I’ve been paying taxes on my business for the last 14 years.February 7, 2018 at 8:23 pm #4209080
I called and had a representative push my state return on 1/31/18 . My refund got issued on on Feb 2 . If I had an offset would the representative have told me on the phone ?February 7, 2018 at 7:37 pm #4209039
My refund got intercepted and the balance is being mailed. It was issued the 31st and I received the notice stating where the money went that was taken out today. Does anyone know how much longer it will take the check to get here?February 7, 2018 at 6:59 pm #4209019
@marcus czech. You should call ftb. Sounds like your getting a paper check too. I didnt think i owed tthe state either. Could be as silly as a ticket that was unpaid. But everyone has gotten their dd in 5 days…unless the state has intercepted for a payment like in my case. Now im waiting for a paper check that was issued on the 31st.February 7, 2018 at 6:23 pm #4208662
I called the 916 number that someone listed below to see if there is anything holding up my refund. I was told there are no other documents needed and it is just 2 weeks for my refund from the date accepted (01/29/2018) So waiting game….
If anyone wants to try calling….I got thru pretty quickly…FYIFebruary 7, 2018 at 6:23 pm #4208083
I called 916-845-6500. The wait time was about 5 minutes even though the automated system stated 30-50 minute wait time. Ask if there are any adjustments, offsets or documents that may be needed.
I had an offset even though I called another 1-800 number to verify days before, but I guess that’s why I had initially a 1 month review before my authorized date.
Hey, but I just received my fed refund with a DDD of 2/7 just now. Lol I will have to wait for my paper state refund now.
Good luckFebruary 7, 2018 at 5:04 pm #4208941
I think I f’d up. I called the hotline and spoke with a nice lady with a very heavy accent and things got very confusing and I was put in hold a few times. I wanted to verify the address and make sure there are no off sets.
I filed 1/11 was accepted and wmr says issues 2/1 but still no DD.
By the end of the conversation the only info that was clear is yes they received my tax forms…uuumm yeah I already knew that.
So I sit and wait.February 7, 2018 at 4:46 pm #4208922
I called the 800# (thank you for the info!) and talked to a very nice lady who asked me a few questions on our W2’s, etc…and then said she processed it and is putting it through?? is this the new normal? we have never had to do that before!?February 7, 2018 at 4:31 pm #4208914
Not sure how people who got authorized after me have already gotten their refund and I’m still waiting for mine to hit my account…February 7, 2018 at 3:24 pm #4208843
Ok. My return was filed and accepted on 1/29. I checked the website on 1/29 and it said that my refund is processing and to give it 1 month. The next day on 1/30 my status changed to my refund was authorized on 1/29. And today I finally received my state check in the mail. I hope everybody receives theirs fast. It will come.February 7, 2018 at 3:21 pm #4208837
@showmethemoney ..well i got the letter about them taking funds today..but no damn check. Funny thing is the letter was just sent on the 5th..so who knows when check will show! LolFebruary 7, 2018 at 2:12 pm #4208765
Filed 1/20 and accepted 1/30 and was left on the processing and the 1 month thing. So I finally called the (916) number yesterday around 3pm. Got through within 2 minutes and talked to a really nice lady who put me on hold for about 2 min. She told me my state taxes were under review and to verify the amount I was getting. She then said I should be seeing a DD in a couple of weeks if the amount I verified was correct on their end. Checked this morning at 7, and was authorized and issued (2/6)! Has anyone gotten their DD earlier than the 10 or 5 days? Hoping I get it beginning of next week. Thanks to the person who suggested calling this number!February 7, 2018 at 1:55 pm #4208724
Finally updated this morning accepted 1/31 Approved DD 2/6February 7, 2018 at 1:29 pm #4208690
@ Sean did they give you any reason?February 7, 2018 at 1:25 pm #4208685
@bubblygrl — i’m in the same boat, except they told me 6-8 weeks over phone for DD.
No idea why it would take so longFebruary 7, 2018 at 1:21 pm #4208679
Hello, My taxes were accepted 2-3-18, it now states that it is processing and could take up to 1 month to receive the return? I have DD anyone file the same day and get their $$ yet?February 7, 2018 at 12:57 pm #4208648
My taxes were accepted on 01/29. I checked this morning and still says processing. Thinking to call like everyone else has done.February 7, 2018 at 11:28 am #4208535
Return Received by CA state on 1-26-18 and has been stuck in processing status
On 2-7-18 I called 916-845-7088 then options 1-1-0. Sat on hold for less than 5 min
Was asked a bunch of questions and told she was able to verify everything over the phone and should expect our DD in 2-4 weeks.
I will update again when ‘Processing’ status changes to ‘Issued’

Got issue date of 2/2
DD today 2/7February 7, 2018 at 11:13 am #4208517
I just called, told there were no mistakes but it should take 6-8 weeks to be processed as it’s their normal timeframe for state returns. Barf
