    Destinie, i talked to someone today she said it was approve the 24th but the check was printed on the 1st so it actually didnt get mailed until the 2nd. She said give it a couple more days for check in the mail. I hope this helps you.

    Shon, I’m in the same boat as you. I thought I was waiting for direct deposit until I received a notice yesterday that the courts took some money from my refund. I called the FTB and the lady said the check was mailed out on the 24th so give it no more than 2 weeks to receive it. Will update when I receive it. Hoping by end of next week.

    I was wondering how long a paper check really takes to be mailed. I was approvedon the 24th of February.

    I filed federal & state on 1/19. Accepted for federal same day & accepted for state on the 22nd. Federal was approved on the 28th and received DD on 2/3. Called about my state several times and was told the same thing about processing can take up to 12 weeks and not being able to get any status updates online. I still checked everyday and finally it showed that my refund was authorized on 2/24 and to wait 10 business days. This is my first time filing for state so hope there isn’t any delays. My sister filed the first week of feb and received an authorization on 2/16 then got her money deposited on 2/18 or 2/19 so it was really fast for her. Hoping it’s the same with mine. Will keep everyone updated.

    @Tara: I too have called several times and been told that it can take up to 12 weeks. They also told me that if you can’t get any info from the site that means “you are not processed in the system”…..I am so tired of the run around with them its horrible… I hope that like @Joe we get something soon ****FINGERS CROSSED****

    Hi Guys,
    I filed and was accepted 2/11/16.

    The website is still giving the same unable to identify message, but I received a direct deposit this morning. Coincidentally, I was able to order my transcripts from the IRS this morning as well which I have not been able to do. I wonder if CA piggy backs off of the IRS system somehow. Anyway I just wanted to share this and let you know you can still get your refund without the website updating.

    Filed State of CA return 01/28-accepted on 01/29. No update on the state website-still processing. I have called several times and keep getting a different answer-some say 2 weeks others say 4-12. Almost as bad as the IRS!

    We are unable to provide your refund status online.

    The two most common reasons are:

    The refund amount does not match our records. The amount you enter must exactly match the information on your tax return.
    The address and ZIP Code does not match our records. You can view and update your mailing address in MyFTB Account.
    Call during business hours for further assistance.

    I don’t know what is going on they say it could be around 12 weeks

    I filed 1/14, for a couple of weeks, nothing when I checked online or called and spoke to anyone. I was told maybe 12 weeks. When I looked this morning, I was authorized but there was a message that an adjustment may be taken out so I called. I was told that they were deducting for a previous overpayment and as a result, they were sending a check instead of a dd. Does anyone know how long the check process takes? I doubt the 2 wk time frame the lady gave because I am still waiting on my pin from when I registered on the 14th

    Hi everyone!
    I filed this morning with HRB and it was accepted 30 mins later. What is the typical turnaround time? Should I expect an approval and deposit in a week or so or does it take a bit longer?

    I don’t have any info on the where’s my refund link, but on MY FTB, it says processed now (updated today) but there are $0.00 everywhere for credits. So IDK if that means it still has to be finalized and sent, but it’s a step.

    Well that’s good news! I got a lil antsy when I couldn’t see any info and went ahead and registered myself. Then it seems as if as soon as I completed that the system recognized me and I was able to see my status on FTB. Took about two days though and it’s usually instant like WMR… How long did it take to get the pin?

    FTB sent me my pin number. I was able to log-in and see that my return had been “received”. The tracker tool still says “unable to find”.

    @Jennifer and @Victoria

    What I am noticing right now is that if you filed through TT your getting an update, but if you filed directly with the state your not getting any update via the refund checker.

    Double checked my FTB account though and I know they received it, but it hasn’t moved any at all.

    Has anyone who files directly with state been able to see an update yet?

    I know CA updated their FTB site this year, wondering if this is a bug or something.

    #4116243 Reply

    Susan, I used TT.

    I typically have my state refund within a week, tops.

    Hello my CA friends ! So here is my situation so far:

    1/19- filed both federal and state with TT and both were accepted within 3 hours.

    1/20- check FTB.gov, said we have no records…. Blah blah

    1/21- at 1pm same message as mentioned above
    Checked again at 8pm, gave a message stated I was entering the wrong info and I’m certain I was!
    1/22- checked at 9 am, now it’s saying we received your return on 1/19 and then the generic time processing message…

    I called a few hours ago and the rep Keith said everything appears to be processing as normal then gave me the 7-10 timeframe for refund to be issued …
    I must say normally I get my ca refund within 3-4 days. Things do seem a bit different this year

    Filed on Jan. 15. TurbotTax indicated received on Jan. 19. Just did CA FTB chat and the rep indicated that it takes up to 7 business days for the receipt of the tax return to “post.” Hope that helps.

    I’m getting the same message:

    “We do not have a record of your 2015 California Income Tax return in our files.”

    Accepted on 1/19. Can’t check anything online because they have to mail the pin number for any FTB account.

    I’ll update when there is any change.

    My California return was accepted (TurboTax) on 1/19/16, but the CA FTB web site says “We do not have a record of your 2015 California Income Tax return in our files.”

    Does this sound normal?

    I filed on 2/6, was received the same day and approved on 2/10. Today (the 24th) make 10 business days since I filed and nothing. I called and It turns out there was a $109 overpayment from unemployment over a year ago that I wasn’t aware of so they were taking the $109 from my refund. What this does is automatically trigger a paper check to be sent instead of the direct deposit I had set up when I e-filed. The rep I talked to on the phone said that it could now be 2-3 weeks from the approval date until i get my check in the snail mail and I will not be getting a direct depot from the state of California at all. It could be as late as March 3rd until I have the check in hand and another 1-2 days after that for it to clear once I deposit it in my bank. This BS happen to anyone else?
