    My CA state taxes updated over night to processed. It shows I have a credit for the amount of my refund in my ftb account. How long before they issue the payment?

    Magna970 that’s awesome how
    Long did it take until you saw it was approved? I did mine yesterday.

    #4503101 Reply

    I filed my California taxes through Cal file yesterday and it has already been approved!

    We authorized your refund on Wednesday, January 19, 2022.

    Please allow:

    10 business days to receive your refund by direct deposit, or 25 business days to receive your refund by check.

    If we made any adjustments to your return, we will notify you by mail.

    Submitted and accepted on 2/18, still showing processing so I called FTB and the person on the phone says there are no issues that he can see, but that it’s in the 2nd to last phase before approved and that I should see an update in a couple of days. I asked if he or someone else can help process my return while I was on the phone and he said they can’t.

    For those of you who were able to get them to process as you were talking with them, what were the magic words you used?

    #4467542 Reply

    Submitted 2/15. Issued 2/24. Never received. I chatted with them and they had the incorrect routing number. They said I would have to wait a month for a paper check. I checked my records and I submitted the correct routing number. Something messed up on their end not mine. They told me today I will have a direct deposit by 3/20. Hopefully it happens soon.

    If your state is processing 3 weeks and past I suggest you call the state and advise the first rep will send you to someone that can review your return and process before you hang up, good luck!

    I’ve also received my federal refund this week.

    #4465342 Reply

    I filed on 2/16. Was rejected due to some kind of TT submission error. Resubmitted/accepted on 2/19. Checking the website it said it was processing and to allow up to 1 month.

    Check today and was immediately told I had reached the maximum allowed to check (this was the only time I checked it today).

    So I called the general 800 number and was told it was received and processing. It also said that the current processing time was 3 TO 4 MONTHS.

    WTF is happening

    #4464598 Reply

    Filed state 3/2 freetaxusa. Accepted within an hour. Approved and sent as of 3/3. Hopefully I’ll see it soon!!

    From what I’m reading, hopefully it hits my bank, Chase, either Thursday or Friday. I received my Federal already which is usually later than state.

    @ Amaree

    If nothing has changed by 3/8 then I will start to worry and will be calling them Back first thing that morning.

    I called CA FTB today and they stated that it is still processing and to wait the 3 weeks.

    I received Federal DD on 2/24

    #4463690 Reply

    @Amaree thanks for the info!

    Yes, I am in the exact boat as you. Previous years I’ve have always had a quick turnaround and surprised I got my federal before state. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one this year.

    #4463591 Reply

    I called last week they said they updated everyday and that mines was not rejected but to wait 3 weeks I never had this before I always got my state 10 days atleast before federal but this is next level

    UPDATE: After I contacted Credit Karma about the CA return not accepted for almost a week and a half, it was magically accepted today around 2 pm so now the website has 2 blue check marks so here’s to hoping it updates to 3 blue check marks soon

    Filed with TT on 01/28 and have been pending this entire time on their website.

    Today received a rejection email because “county” was missing on form. First time this has ever happened to me.

    Corrected issue this morning, 02/23 and received email that State was finally accepted by FTB.

    Now we wait….I just wish TT had caught this issue ahead of time.

    #4458864 Reply

    After days of not being about to track my refund through FTB it finally updated today, deposit send on 2/22

    CA is still pending and I don’t know why. It usually gets accepted pretty quickly in the past but now it’s just…not moving

    My girlfriend filed 1/27 through TT, accepted 2/11 .. when she would check the status it would say there’s a problem with state but it wouldn’t give her an option to fix or correct anything.. but it hit her account yesterday. I filed 2/6 through TT and got accepted 2/12 and still nothing.. just be patient and it’ll come

    #4457875 Reply

    @vijay when was your return accepted? I file the 23rd, accepted the 13th and still nothing 😑
