    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!

    @ Sean did they give you any reason?

    @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 long

    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?

    #4208648 Reply



    My taxes were accepted on 01/29. I checked this morning and still says processing. Thinking to call like everyone else has done.

    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’

    My refund was authorized on 2/1 and I still haven’t received my DD as of this moment… I don’t get what’s taking so long – I don’t have any tax obligations to the state

    And so I continue to wait -_-

    #4208228 Reply


    Still no dd date I faxed everything yesterday

    #4208198 Reply


    Got my refund date.

    Follow the advices here and call the number mentioned if your status shows one month message.
    I did and faxed the W2 and pay stubs they requested and now got my refund date after being stuck for almost 10 days.

    @Don dowell
    Are you calling the right number?
    The correct number to call is: 916-845-7088.
    I am self-employed like you. I don’t know about anyone else but when I called I asked the representative if he/she could please tell me if I had any documents that needed submitted so that my return could finish processing. When he/she told me that there was none needed to be submitted at the time, I asked could he/she be able to push my return through. One person told me that they could see if they could but then stated that they couldn’t touch it. Therefore, I knew there was a waiting period before it could be process.
    I called numerous of times with the same line..LOL.

    #4207840 Reply


    Mine still hasn’t been issued and it was approved on 1/31. What number is everyone calling?

    #4207798 Reply


    @show me the money. Youre welcome! Yea i dont know whats up with ca this year. I dont even understand how i could have an offset if i was never notified about it in the first place! Also why did it take me so many calls to get my refund moving..nothing has changed in my life for 6 years. Same house, job, anyways at least we know i suppose… Welcome to the snail mail club! Nothing like waiting for a check to come in the mail! Hah

    #4207796 Reply

    @waitingncali ugh looks like we’re in the same boat! Frantic mail checkers lol I just called FTB and they said there weren’t any offsets on my account but for some reason my check is being mailed. I could have sworn my tax preparer selected DD for both refunds! They did say I should have it no later than 2/15 but I was hoping it would be closer to my Fed DDD of 2/7. Thanks for the help!

    #4207653 Reply


    @noluckyet Thank you!

    #4207639 Reply


    Snail mail usually takes 4-6 days not counting sun. But it all depends on details. Like the time it was dropped into the mailbox, what time got to the mailhhouse, did it just missed the truck thats going to ur location, what time doea the mailman delivers to ur house. If u get lucky u could have it by tomorrow or thursday. But youll have it by the en of the week or monday for sure. Anyways good luck.

    #4207622 Reply


    @djdlash let me know when yours shows in the mail! Ill be checkin every morning ..stalking the mail lady! Haha. As for fed you should get it soon! Mine wont be here til after the 15th as i had the additional child tax credits.

    #4207606 Reply


    So I was accepted 1/26 and have eitc, have been in processing.

    I called today and turns out they couldn’t verify my income, had to fax my 1099-K.

    So if you drive for Lyft/Uber you may want to call and see if they need yours. I’m gonna check back tomorrow and see if they need anything else they didn’t mention, but I figure if she didn’t list it when she said she needed my 1099 then likely not.

    #4207602 Reply


    Now I’ll be checking my mail like I was checking the refund site lol. Hopefully my fed DD comes in this week. I have a DDD of 2/7 and I bank with BofA. I don’t know whether it will be tomorrow or the day after. Oh man, crossing my fingers.

    #4207590 Reply


    @djdlash i get it. Im in the same boat. I disint even know i had an offset! But mine was issued on 1/31 and now im waiting for my check in the mail. My question long does it ACTUALLY

    #4207588 Reply


    I actually spent my rent money.!!! Im in my 20’s lol. At least i know not to wait for californias, since i owe more than 1500 over a stupid disable parking ticket i got at work i didnt even know about that went up to 1548. So i know they gonna take my following year refunds. Ugh. Gotta love cali. Does anybody know if (for the federal) they said your refund will be sent to you bank on 2/7, Means i get it that day or i gotta wait for the bank to release it to me which can be on the 8th or 9th ugh ugh ugh. I called the bank and they say they dont see anything coming in or getting rejected. I have bofa btw. My dd from work is usually in at 1201 always. Been up till 1a for the past 3 days. And i work at 4a everyday. Lol. Like i said im in my 22yo so i can handle now. But ugh ugh ugh stressful

    Where’s my refund

    Has anyone who had their CA return issued on 2/1/18 receive their Direct Deposit yet ?? I called the FTB and they said every thing checks out fine and I should see my direct deposit with 7 business days but I am just getting anxious because it’s taking so long. I hope I don’t get an offset. I already received my Federal return on Saturday 2/3.

    #4207570 Reply


    Ok, so I received an approved date of 1/31 but did not receive a DD today. I called for any offsets, and yes I had my student loan that was paid off. The rest of the refund is going to be mailed (2 weeks). So, if have an approved date of 1/31 or earlier and have not received a DD yet, call and ask. Now, I have to wait for the paper check. Mmmmmm

    #4207563 Reply


    Anyone received there State Return without the website updating ?

    #4207542 Reply


    @mar are you saying your state was issued on 1/29 or accepted on 1/29 . and yes lots have gotten cali refunds already!

    #4207514 Reply


    My taxes were accepted on Jan. 29th. I have not gotten a state fund yet. As far as Fed refund, I know they are not releasing it till mid-February because I have a child tax credit.

    Anyone received their state refund yet? Or how long it is suppose to be? I was told 1-12 business days then told 7-21 days.

    #4207496 Reply


    @showmethemoney. Yes I always get dd. My state was issued on 1/31. I was expecting my dd last night and it didnt happen. So i called ftb and they said i had an offset sith dmv. So that automatically puts me in the paper check club. Trust me i dont want to be in this club! So now ill be frantically checking the mail everyday!

    #4207475 Reply

    @waitiningncali I really hope that’s not the case. Did you request DD when you filed? I checked with my tax preparer and she confirmed she set both Fed and State up for DD. I’ve never had mine mailed before. Wonder why the change if it is in fact being mailed. Strange. Thanks for the info! I have a Fed DDD of 2/7.

    #4207459 Reply


    @noluckyet i just got off the phone with them 30 minutes ago. I cant beleive they are doin it over dmv bullshit. Im sure they took yours too..sorry…im not happy either. My dumbass already spent the money that was coming and now i screwed myself. I shouldnt have..but i did. I just with there was a way to know when the damn check will show. There is no way it takes 2 flippin weeks to mail..grrr!

    #4207447 Reply



    When was that? I got my refund authorized the same day as you, i was expecting it today as well, But no luck. I owe the dmv more than my refund amount. My federal is supposed to hit tomorrow. Wonder if they gon do the same.

    #4207444 Reply


    @showmethemoney you are probably waiting for a paper check as well. Seems like those of us still waiting are having same issues. I just called tax boasrd and they just decided to tell me mine is coming by mail. Due to an offset i didnt evwn know i had. Mine was issued the 31st so who knkws when it will actually come. They told me 2 weeks..but usually doesnt take that long…

    #4207430 Reply

    CA refund issued on 1/30 but no DDD yet. I know the site says to allow 10 business days but it seems like most people are getting theirs within 5 days. Any other insight from those issued on the same date???

    #4207423 Reply


    @pearl im wo dering the same thing. Mine was issued on 1/31 and i just found out mine is getting mailed. Id love to know the actual tine frame. Tax board told me 2 weeks. Im hoping it isnt that long…

    Well i figured out why i didnt get my dd. Dmv took some money for a broke down car that i didnt pay the tags on. So im waitong for the remainer of my refund to come via mail. Fun stuff! Lol

Have tried calling back same ole response wait five days. Filed on 26 of Jan. After 5 days will call.

    I had dreaded 1 month message for whole week now and called yesterday.
    Was asked to fax in W2 and year end stub which I did.
    I called again today and was told that they received it and allow 2 to 4 weeks for refund to process.

    #4207205 Reply


    I have been checking status on the FTB wheres my refund tool but I only see ‘Recieved’ ‘Processing’ and ‘Issued’ No mention of ‘Authorized’ as people keep saying on this thread.

    Mine has been at ‘Processing’ since 2/1/2018, and it was accepted/recieved on 1/30/18. How long were you guys stuck on ‘processing’?

    To the self employed persons with eic. Just an update. I called this morning and it was processed yesterday. Customer service stated the website should have an update by the end of this week and I should get my refund within 2-4 weeks. So try calling to see if you had any movement.

    #4207113 Reply


    This might help some people (and hopefully it’s true for me haha)…..
    Just got off the phone with a rep. She stated my return was processed on the 1st and submitted for issuance on the 2nd. She stated to give it up to 2 weeks to receive my funds. I asked why the system hadn’t been updated through the website and she said it should’ve but maybe they just haven’t updated it. She said nothing was pending for me and if I requested a DD then I should have it before the end of the week.

    #4207003 Reply


    Filed 1/27, accepted 1/30. “Cannot province any info on your return” until I called on 2/2 and asked what was going on. Updated on 2/3 to processing. I’m really hoping I get it this week.. any insight? I need some hope!

    #4206982 Reply


    Has anyone received a DD without the site updating that it was sent ? That happen with my Federal. My Federal was DD into my bank account on Friday and WMR updated that it was approved this past Saturday to be DD on 2/7 but as you can see I received it way before 2/7 but unfortunately that has not been the case for my State so far as it’s still showing processing and for me to wait for one month.

    By the way both my Federal and State was filled and accepted 1/29.
    I remember last year I had the same problem with State, I didn’t receive it until April.
