Refund was issued 2/8. Still have not received a deposit on my turbo tax card. :( Anyone else?February 14, 2019 at 1:01 am #4269114
I got a strange error message late night last night and then I woke up to an issue date of 2/12 I will post as soon as my add DD hits. Hang tight and call if things don’t seem right. I called with a very “I need your help” attitudue. I lost my job recently to layoff and I made sure to mention “I’m sorry to be a stalker, but I just was laid off so this money is really important to my livelihood” . she was very understanding and I went to “issued” the next day. BTW- Thank you to California for it’s compassion. <3February 14, 2019 at 1:00 am #4269108

Not sure when DD will be.February 13, 2019 at 10:56 pm #4269041
2/8 approval and issued
Really hoping it will be in my chase account in morning! They tend do release deposits after midnight,
Anyone receive theirs from chase yet?February 13, 2019 at 9:57 pm #4268985
Anyone have an issue date of 2/11 and have you seen a DD yet?February 13, 2019 at 9:32 pm #4268972
Issue date of 2/11 anyone get theres already??February 13, 2019 at 7:56 pm #4268883
Had issues date of 2/9. Credit union just received state refund this afternoon.February 13, 2019 at 5:37 pm #4268745
Filed and accepted on 2/5/2019
I called the 916 number and the agent said he would go ahead and process. He then informed me that I needed to provide my W2s and last Paystubs for the 2018 year as verification.
Apparently I filed my return before the state received the information from my employer.February 13, 2019 at 4:52 pm #4268684
Just a few tips :
If you guys have the 1 month message, call the 916 number! (Scroll down or go through a few pages to find the number)Don’t wait for it to change because more than likely it won’t unless you call.
If you called and then try to check the website the next day, it’ll say something like wait one business day to check. That only means theyre updating your bars and you’ll see an issue date the following day.
Also, if you call and they say they’ll process it & wait 4 weeks, it’s just something that they have to say.
Direct deposit takes 4 business days from your issue dateFebruary 13, 2019 at 4:06 pm #4268638
@tiffanyc I hope so!!! Its been two weeks too long LOLFebruary 13, 2019 at 4:05 pm #4268636
Yeah I thought it was weird because it was showing me the status, and then the first time it did say mantinance. But yesterday it said to check back later and today no status bar just says processing??? But thank you for your insight I appreciate all the feed back. Guess I’ll be waiting till 1am, lolFebruary 13, 2019 at 3:44 pm #4268600
@ RUBEN Hmm Most times that signals a pending update. Not sure why you can now see your bars again and no update. Last night I updated between 11:55 and 1:30 and I received a maintenance message. Another poster PAULA got a different message but also updated last night around the same time. Don’t check WMR until 1:00 a.m. (I know that’s tough sometimes lol)February 13, 2019 at 3:27 pm #4268575
All my fees were taken from state even the federal fees so they might take it from stateFebruary 13, 2019 at 3:27 pm #4268573
No not a blank page it doesnt show the status bar anymore, I just checked now and it says being processed. But before it was saying to check back laterFebruary 13, 2019 at 3:17 pm #4268557
@ RUBEN what does the page say when it loads? Or is it a completely white screen?February 13, 2019 at 3:08 pm #4268550
Did my taxes through turbo tax on 1/28 however my state wasn’t filed till 2/7 because form for business profit and loss was not available till then. i got a 1099 from a business i clean weekly reason why i had to file as self-employed. Will it take longer for me to get my refund because of it?
AND BEING PROCESSED ….February 13, 2019 at 3:00 pm #4268537
@Mom24 It’s specifically states Federal when you complete your taxes, I even screenshot the page when I was completing my return because I knew I was going to ask myself that question lol. Go to SBTPG they should only have Federal listed as the refund expected because the Green Dot TurboTax card routing and account number was given specifically for your state return. I’m almost positive but check it out.February 13, 2019 at 2:23 pm #4268467
Called 916 number on 2/13 as no movement had occurred and nothing was received in the mail
I spoke with someone who said there was an offset that was taken out and he was processing it and it could be up to 4 weeks. I checked WMR this morning and now everything is completely gone – nothing found.
I’m at a loss. Any tips or advice?February 13, 2019 at 2:20 pm #4268463
Ok guys question on the wmr page it showed that they received it, but the last 2 days it wont come up anymore when I try and check it. Does that usually mean anything???February 13, 2019 at 2:19 pm #4268457
According to the rep at turbo tax, they only take the loan from federal. State should go directly to your turbo tax card.
I have a 2/8 issue date and still nothing.February 13, 2019 at 2:14 pm #4268447
I’m in the same boat, been processing since 1/28. I called yesterday and they told me to give it 31 calendar days. That if I haven’t recieved anything by 3/1 then I should call. I asked if there was any issues with my return she said no, that I might just be one they pulled to verifyFebruary 13, 2019 at 2:11 pm #4268436
Mine was issued 2/7
Got it today into my turbo tax card at 12amFebruary 13, 2019 at 2:04 pm #4268424
Authorized refund on 2/8
And as of today 2/13 still no deposit.
Have the H&R Block Emerald card. Anyone else get a deposit?February 13, 2019 at 2:04 pm #4268422
I was told that it’s pulled from whichever come firstFebruary 13, 2019 at 1:54 pm #4268410
Does Turbo Tax pull the anticipation loan from both State and federal or just from the federal refund? My state was issued 2/8 but still no DD on Turbo tax card.February 13, 2019 at 1:52 pm #4268401
Has anyone done the refund advance with Jackson Hewitt? My tax guy just argued with me that I probably won’t even get a state refund because they will take all of it and then take the reminder of the amount out of my federal? I’ve never had that issues the last 2 years with state this is a new office and I already hate it.February 13, 2019 at 1:37 pm #4268380

Hope everyone else gets their refunds!February 12, 2019 at 11:22 pm #4267657
My ca state was issued 2/8, but I haven’t received it yet in my acct. I have an offset as well. I received my federal return two weeks ago.
Anyone received their refund who was issued on 2/8 through Jackson and Hewitt?February 12, 2019 at 11:17 pm #4267655
Just wanted to give an insight. I haven’t gone through all the comments so forgive me if you guys figured it out. If your return still doesn’t show up after 9-10 days on the where’s my refund on ftb you probably have an offset. I’m a tax preparer. I prepared a few clients, my own, my husbands and friends. It’s been pretty consistent it won’t show any progress if there’s an off set. I spoke to an agent and he said it’s a glitch and they are trying to figure that out. Because prior years it would say the offset on the site. Just wanted to let you guys know. So if your concerned don’t hesitate to call the FTB.February 12, 2019 at 11:00 pm #4267634
Eric is lurking. He probably got his refund and was screaming lol. Now he is back lurking around. LolFebruary 12, 2019 at 11:00 pm #4267633
@justme I did my own taxes on TTFebruary 12, 2019 at 10:59 pm #4267632
When I called when it got issued they said I didn’t have any offsets and that I will receive my full amount.February 12, 2019 at 10:47 pm #4267620
DD of 2/8
Just received it on my Netspend 10 minutes ago.February 12, 2019 at 10:47 pm #4267619
Widowed Dad CA
Courtney. You need to call FTB and ask. Or you will get a letter in the mail explaining whyFebruary 12, 2019 at 10:44 pm #4267615
It could be an offset or fees taken out for the taz prep.February 12, 2019 at 10:42 pm #4267610
Received my deposit on 2/12 at 742pm however it wasn’t the amount it was suppose to be how do I figure out why?February 12, 2019 at 10:30 pm #4267592
Then why are you even on this site ??February 12, 2019 at 10:09 pm #4267562
10 business days to receive your refund by direct deposit, or
25 business days to receive your return”
A lot of you embarrassing. We all get the same message once return is issued. If your issue date was 2/7 why are you in utter shock that you haven’t been paid yet on 2/12? I understand a little frustration if it’s not in your account early, but to be in a panic and outraged calling them up because it’s been 4 days it is pathetic.February 12, 2019 at 9:46 pm #4267531
But still nothing in my bank. Weird.February 12, 2019 at 9:43 pm #4267528
I got notice my refund was issued yesterday. Any ideas when I’ll get it?February 12, 2019 at 8:56 pm #4267486
I filed on the 4th same day as my daughter.She has a DD for the 13th. Mine still says processing. This is the 1st year I have claimed “self employment” with Uber.I also have dependents.Could this be causing it to take longer?February 12, 2019 at 7:46 pm #4267431

It looks like they go into the bank 4 business days after it’s marked issued.
DDD should be 2/13February 12, 2019 at 2:29 pm #4267007
Does anyone know if State refund is used to pay tax preparer fees?February 12, 2019 at 2:26 pm #4267002
Anyone get an issue date of 2/8 for their state and has received their deposit yet??February 12, 2019 at 2:24 pm #4266998
Still waiting on a deposit. Hoping today. Did my taxes through Jackson and Hewitt and it will be loaded onto a prepaid American Express card. I got my federal three weeks ago.February 12, 2019 at 2:03 pm #4266956
@Jocelin …ComericaFebruary 12, 2019 at 1:55 pm #4266934
@mckee what bank do you haveFebruary 12, 2019 at 1:51 pm #4266925
Called my bank and they have a pending deposit for tomorrow.February 12, 2019 at 1:22 pm #4266872
Issued date is 2/7 here as well and still no DD. I was expecting it tomorrow, but hoping for today. LolFebruary 12, 2019 at 1:15 pm #4266865
I am so irritated! So I guess it’s tomorrow, and if not tomorrow then the next day. If anyone who has an issue date of 2/7 going to a bank gets their refund can you post?February 12, 2019 at 1:09 pm #4266860
DDD – still waiting
Does anyone else have BOA and not seen their DD? I called the 916 number this morning just to confirm that there were no offsets and where or not I can be expecting a DD. Ahn confirmed that everything was fine and no offsets and that I should see in my account within the next day or so.
I contacted BOA just to see if there was anything pending to my account and at this point they said no! Anyone else? Still hoping for tomorrow, though!February 12, 2019 at 12:32 pm #4266823
Waiting on DD via netspend cardFebruary 12, 2019 at 12:18 pm #4266811
I still don’t have an DDD either. They keep telling me I’m processed but I don’t know what the holdup is. I guess all we can do is wait and see what happens.February 12, 2019 at 12:16 pm #4266809
Called the 916 number this morning and was told I have a minor offset of 200$ but it will still be DD the lady name was Linda she told me give it 7 business days from Issued Date I should see it in my account if not call back. She also said they changed the rule they don’t mail checks if it’s offset they would still deposit it if that’s what u signed up forFebruary 12, 2019 at 10:48 am #4266679

Widowed Dad CA
I filed my state on 1/31 accepted mins later. Still processing. Called this morning. Rep stated that CA really can take mins to process up to 4 weeks. Regardless if no flags. It’s really not first come first served. Many factors. If your employer sends your w2 doesn’t mean they’ve reported to SSA. And 1099 could take a while for SSA to accept as well. Also. Even if you’re flagged for extra review could delay. Sometimes you may need to ID verify or send a form. Sometimes it’s something they fix or review manually. I’ve always taken 4 weeks for my state. And now with fed path. I still get my fed first lol. Which is cool. My fed is way more. I have 4 girls and 2 boys and I’m a 42 year old widowed man with 3 jobs. So believe me. I’m like everyone else. Need that money.
Well anyway. God Bless you all. And I pray everyone gets there money soon.February 12, 2019 at 10:25 am #4266631
Can anybody help me here? I called last week a rep told me he was going to process it. Well it never got processed yesterday I called and the rep told me my account was still open and she woukd close it and issue a date. Well this morning there was no change. I just got off the phone with somebody and she said its done processing but it will take up to 4 weeks. And dont rely on the automated system because it doesnt always update. So my question is how long does it take to get an issue date once its done processing?February 12, 2019 at 10:16 am #4266619
Ok so i called 2/11 because it still showed processing. I had a brief conversation with the rep and she said she processed my return and to wait 4 weeks. I asked her what the issue with my filing was and she said none that is why she processed it for me. I checked this morning on the ftb website and it wont give me any info at all
Funny part is fed refund is already in my account one day before it was supposed to be sent(2/13). Say im stoked about that, what is going on with my state refund?
