    @kmc2611 (waitingncali)

    It’s almost 5! 👀👀☺️

    #4206513 Reply


    I don’t understand why it will take that long? is it sent somewhere else first? then to you’re bank? if not, since it’s automated it should be received right away, especially with an account like mine. My bank do not hold any type of deposit, as soon as it hits the account, it’s made available to me. When it says “issued”, I don’t think it’s to the account, I think that perhaps it’s to another department, then to the accounts. I could be wrong, however, anything more then 48 hours seems off.

    @nicole85. Everyone says about 5 days. Mine was issued on 1/31 and i still dont have it. I have a prepaod card and i wouldve thought it would be deposited by now..but no such luck.

    Hello everyone, I have a quick question.

    My CA retrun was issued on 02/01/18. Should I be exspecting it soon or will it take the full 10 days?.

    #4206451 Reply


    @NB – thanks for the help. I’ll keep an eye on it.

    #4206387 Reply


    @Sean, just FYI, that’s the date they have now on the website on when they approved it, but I don’t think the website itself is updated right away, it takes a couple of days before you can see it on their “where is my refund” tool.

    #4206382 Reply


    @NB – wow — two days from accepted to approved! CA is moving fast this year

    #4206374 Reply


    26th – Prepared through H&R online
    26th – Filed federal
    29th – Filed CA (some forms just became accepted)
    31st – CA Approved / issued
    3rd – Federal Approved with DD of Feb 7th

    How quickly does it generally move from Accepted to Approved?

    Filed 1/16 accepted 1/17 approved 1/31 and used taxact. My bank sees the direct deposit but I.T won’t be released to me until this evening or early tomorrow morning but for all those that got approved 1/31 you should see deposits tonight or tomorrow morning depending on refund method :)

    My state refund said it was issued 2-1 but it may take up to ten business days to process. I went through H&R Block and chose direct deposit to the Emerald card. Does anyone know if it will take the full 10 days or if it will be sooner?

    I thought you said you’re state refund was already issued???. If it’s being processed then it has not been issued. Once it says “issued you’ll get it 2-5 days after.

    It’s okay

    Olivia, calm down. Everyone is here to give info to one another, you’re not the only person waiting for their refunds. I am in the same situation as you. Accepted 1/19/18, finally issued the state 2/3 and I used turbo tax and greendot. Don’t use the whole free speech thing, go to Facebook for that type of conversation. Bye Felicia.👋👋👋

    #4205466 Reply



    I just wanted to comment on your situation. Having funds seized for county court fees will NOT affect your federal return. I’ve had this happen to me before ugh but I hope that gives you some peace of mind.

    I’m patiently waiting on my return.
    TacAct filed 1/22
    Accepted 1/23
    CA says processing with 1month wait time! Ya!! :) lol

    #4205457 Reply


    Look lady, Olivia Farmer there’s no need for your attitude. We are all on this site for the same reason support and give each other info. If you don’t like it then don’t reply.
    I’m being perfectly honest with my info no need to be called a liar

    State accepted 1/29 issued and approved 1/30 refund hit my bank 2/3 used turbo tax no card

    Federal acccepted 1/29 woke up on Friday with a direct deposit day of 2/6

    This is the last time I’ll give you this info so take it like you want it

    #4205358 Reply


    Olivia farmer
    You’re arguing with the wrong people. I’m just providing the information, I didn’t create the process. The pilot group doesn’t apply to all, as I stated some. In addition, I filed 1/30/18 and I have a federal refund date of 2/7/18. You want accurate information, call IRS & FTB. I’m over trying to help ease your frustration as everyone on here is frustrated in some form waiting on their refund. Have a great night and a better Sunday.

    That’s isn’t accurate either I was accepted on the 17th of January and I filled a 1040ez and I also filed single with no eitc I have never heard of a pilot program

    #4205350 Reply

    Olivia farmer

    First off I can say what I want it’s a free country second off I have the same message mine was accepted on the 17 of January and so was my state the IRS still did not officially accept returns until the 29th of January so I don’t know how people are saying they already have a direct deposit date for there fed or state where do you see a date showing when funds are going to be deposited and also how are people getting there returns when the official file date was January 29th the only reason people were accepted early was for the IRS testing program

    #4205348 Reply


    Olivia farmer
    Every year the IRS has a pilot group that they accept refunds prior to the official date. So it is possible that people were accepted and received their refund already. If they filed early, these people were most likely approved prior to the 29th. Some people didn’t make the pilot program but those that did were probably simple returns 1040A/EZ

    #4205344 Reply


    My refund was Authorized on 1/31. Has anyone received their refund for this authorization date.

    #4205340 Reply


    @Olivia farmer This is my TurboTax time/date line for my federal that I copied and pasted from the website. As you can see my return was accepted on the 23rd. I know you want you’re money, WE ALL do, however, there’s no need to come on here calling people liars. This is a process that’s not set in stone, for some people the process is different, which ends up working in their favor. However, for most, it a frustrating process. You’re MONEY is coming.

    Dang im still waiting for dd. Was sent 1/31…Im startinf to stress now. Lol

    #4205308 Reply


    California is very wierd, when it comes to low income (anything below $30,000) the more poor you are the more money you get while the fed is the other way (for low income), with the fed the less money you make the lower your refund while the higher your income the more refund you get. It’s very wierd.

    But I feel the liberals of this state are proud of this difference. You got to the Cali EITC estimator and it actually highlights the state’s difference to the feds, like the liberals are so proud they give more money then the fed to the most poor. It’s no wonder this state is getting more and more in debt, it needs a good Republican leadership for a change. That system of giving more money to people who make less can’t sustain itself for long.

    Checked my status today and it states my CA refund was intercepted by my county for a court ordered debt. Does anyone know if they can take my federa as well? I don’t even know what it’s for I have to cal Monday to find out. Ugh

    @waitingncali No nothing yet :( And I’m anxious as heck lol I’ve never used Greendot before but from what i gather they deposit early morning (3-4) and also in the evening 5-6). Fingers crossed for this evening 🤞🏽

    But still stuck in processing.
    Same federal tax is accepted and to be deposited on 2/6.

    This is the first time where CA is taking longer than federal for me in 10+ years.

    #4204997 Reply


    @Olivia farmer It can take up to 10 days, however, for many it will not take that long. As one commenter said, it can be 5 days max, nevertheless, from years of experience it does not even take that long, that is of course from the time it was issued. If it was issued on February 1st, it’s very likely to hit you’re account on Monday or Tuesday morning.

    #4204971 Reply



    You and me both. I have Greendot also and my issue date was 1/31 fingers crossed for this evening if not I hope I.T will for sure be in my account Monday.

    I filed 1/28, accepted 1/30 and up until yesterday I had a message that said “cannot provide information about your return, please check processing times”. I decided to call the FTB yesterday and since I changed my filing status from mfj to hoh, their system created a new account for me. The man was very helpful and kind, and merged my two accounts. Today shows processing.. hopefully I get it soon!!

    5 days is still too long ! I have never, ever ! experienced a delay like this, with federal or state, I always got both of my returns back within 3-4 days a filing. I know it’s coming, as i suspect everyone else does, however, it’s frustrating when you have bills to pay and kids to take care of.

    Don’t panic people! It’s 5 days max including weekends. I filed 1/23 approved 1/24 got my refund 1/29 and yes I initially got the “1 month Message” disappeared the next day to approved and processed.

    TurboTax sent 1/30/18
    Accepted 1/30/18
    Approved 1/31/18
    DD sent within 10 days.

    I just called the FTB and my processing has been fully completed and my refund amount was authorized and sent to the comptrollers office for payment. The guy couldn’t give me a date, other than he is required to say within 10 days. He did ask if I checked my account today and I said it wasn’t there. He said to check again tomorrow and “at the latest” Monday….
