    Well as off 3:30 am here in Cali I have yet to receive a damn thing in my bank from FTB. The app says my refund was issued or authorised on 2/15/2018. I’ll update when I get it in my account

    I filed IRS & Ca on 1/31. Got my IRS refund in 7 days, as usual. CA refund was MIA and still is “Processing”. It has always been direct deposited in 7 days for the last 15+ years. This year, I believe the reason is EQUIFAX. Remember the hack that stole 400 million peoples’ ID info last year? Hackers got your name, SSN, address, phone number, and CC financials. All the things to successfully file a return in your name for those who bought up blocks of that info. If you filed thru another online service, CA figures that return is vetted.CA FTB’s website has got to be so vulnerable, FTB doesn’t trust anyone filing using CAL FILE. Make sure to dislike CAL FILE on Facebook. I’m not using it next year since it may take 1 to 3 months to get a refund. Some people get lucky when they wait for hours for several days calling until they get thru to someone who knows what they are doing.

    Filed 2/2 still was in processing as of 2/20. Simple basic return. One w2, and ssdi benefits with renters credit. Was told via chat on ftb, 12 weeks. Called the 916 number to talk to someone and he asked me a few verification questions about myself and my husband. Then he said he was processing it and said I had no offsets, monies owed and to allow another 2-4 weeks and I should have it. He said filing through their site is taking longer. He said if I had used a tax service instead I would have already had it. This has never been the case before. I always file direct and usually get state before fed. I got my fed 2 weeks ago now, wishing a week. Now, I go to check my refund and it says NO INFORMATION FOUND. Wtf? So I go from processing to not found?!?! Anyone else having trouble getting a very basic uncomplicated refund?

    Mine was in processing and now it’s saying unable to find your info. I know Eva and Nicole posted on this. Anyone experience this too?

    Did anyone receive their deposit from state? If so what day did you file and what day did you receive the deposit?

    #4225271 Reply


    Well this was freaking awesome. I received a notice from the franchise tax board 2/16 saying I owed money to the city of San Diego for a fine a couple years ago but the catch is that I paid this amount way back in Sept. of last year but it was never updated in FTB system. So now, not only do I have to wait on a check for my refund, I also have to wait until the city gets the fine amount and sends me a another check for the amount they shouldn’t have taken to begin with. Once an adjustment letter comes, how long is it taking to get a paper check?

    Filed 2/2
    Both Fed & State accepted 2/2
    Fed DD 2/14
    State issued 2/14 still no DD from state.

    My CA State was issued on 02/15 and no DD yet.. Monday was a holiday, I don’t remember it taking this long last year. Will keep you posted!

    Filed both federal and state 2/9. Accepted Same date. Already got my Federal issue date. State still in processing. Any one on the same boat?

    #4224099 Reply


    BF and I filed the same day and time
    Feb 15th

    Just checked
    His was accepted Feb 16 and approved February 16

    Mine was accepted Feb 16 and is still processing
    Hopefully mines updates soon.

    #4223020 Reply


    Accepted 1/29
    Issued 2/9

    After my whole ordeal calling in and faxing my 1099, asking if there’s anything else I should know, I get a letter from 2/14 saying I had an offset from who knows how long ago for $230. Guess I owed fees from a community college semester like a decade ago!

    So now I have to wait for it to be mailed? Which sucks. Does it reset the amount of time I have to wait?

    Hello..i filed state and federal on 2/7 accepted on both on 2/7. Stare shows refund issued on feb 15, anyone issued on 2/15 got their refund direct deposited yet?

    #4222445 Reply


    How long after the refund is authorized has the miney been hitting the back?

    #4222177 Reply


    I’m in the same boat. I filed state 1/2 and got an issue date of 2/9. They said i had an adjustment and notice was coming. No notice yet and still waiting.

    When they adjust your refund or have an offset, they no longer direct deposit. They send a check. Which takes so much longer. A friend of mine took 15 days for her to get her check from state.

    My federal updated this morning to a DDD of 2/22. I filed 1/31.

    #4221660 Reply


    So are you able to find out if you have an offset with California? If you get an offset does it mean no direct deposit and they will mail a check? Thanks!

    The info you provided was the most helpful and spot-on it was a great help!.!.!- to find out what was going on with my taxes –
    my question to you how long after they issued did you actually receive your direct deposit

    #4221126 Reply


    Okay, so I went to the FTB to check the status one more time and now it says ISSUED! I haven’t checked my bank yet but I almost fell over seeing it!! Anyway it says it was authorized to be issued on February 15. I’ll update when I check my bank

    #4221104 Reply


    I have been getting the one month message up until 2 days ago, now I’m getting the same message as nicole:

    Unable to find a return with the details entered.
    What the hell?

    #4220273 Reply


    What the hell?? I filed both state and fed on 1/31 with an accepted date on the same day. My state was issued on 2/9 and I still have not received a DD or a notice of adjustment. My fed is still sitting on one bar (processing). Is anyone else still waiting around on both? And I’m not even claim EIC so I don’t get the delay this year.

    UPDATE: Called for the second time today first time was told everything was fine no additional information was needed and some returns just need additional provessing time and for me to wait 12 weeks called today and was told I need to fax over a bunch of documents WOW so if your being told the 12 week crap call again and speak to someone else to make sure they dont need a bunch of unnecessary documentation

    #4219164 Reply


    Called for the third time and the very nice rep stated one of two things may have happened…either I am one of the lucky refunds that will sit for 2 to 4 weeks before being released or it was a clerical error and my refund was deposited into someone else’s account.

    IRS & CA efiled and accepted 1/31/18.
    Every year it’s been 7 days (for me) to get both direct deposted.
    IRS refund received 2/7/18,
    CA refund still “Processing” 02/14/18
    Last week CA FTB website said 7-10 days for efilers.
    This week CA FTB website says 2 weeks for efilers.
    Check refund status says 1 month for efilers.
    Left bad feedback pon CA FTB website.
    20 years ago CA FTB sent a letter to my employer to garnishee my wages 80% because my paper return never showed up and gave me 48hrs to pay 250% of what they said was my tax due. Should be a law the other way…….no refund on time gets CA FTB a penalty of 100% per day of the refund due! Mad as hades this year being a victim of BAD CA FTB.

    Filed both fed/state on 1/29, accepted on the same day. My state was issued on 1/9 but still haven’t received. Fed still sitting on one bar, just keeps saying processing. I am not claiming EIC so not sure why fed is taking so long. Anyone else that’s having this same issue?
