Still waiting, I want to call and ask why I have to wait when others have filed and received refunds WEEKS, even MONTHS after I filed a timely return. Sweet baby Jesus, I see a day trip to Atlanta in my future.April 11, 2017 at 9:42 pm #4195078
GA state refund just hit my PayPal Prepaid card (it’s a Netspend product).
Tax season is finally over till next year. Thank God!April 11, 2017 at 2:50 pm #4195059
Filed and Accepted 3/15/17
This morning, the “90 day” message changed to blah blah blah you’re refund is scheduled to be transmitted by 4/12/2017 blah blah blah.
Will update when it hits.March 31, 2017 at 4:37 am #4194301
Donna I’m in the exact same boat. Accepted 2/1 and still waiting. No update, just same 90 day message smhMarch 28, 2017 at 9:54 am #4193760
Filed 1/31/17, Accepted 2/1/17, still have 90 day message on 3/28/17. Federal refund deposit on 2/23/17. Seems like Georgia really needs money this year….. holding tax refunds to continue drawing interest from them. SMDHMarch 24, 2017 at 11:26 pm #4193437
Filed and Accepted 3/15/17.
Still have the “90 day” message.March 13, 2017 at 4:15 pm #4191372
I filed 2/10/17, received my federal 2/22/17 and have yet to see any changes on my Georgia State refund. I get the same ole “90 day” bs much like everyone else….February 22, 2017 at 6:57 am #4183151
Refund hit bank this morning 2/22/17
Pretty quick this year didn’t get it back til March 15th last year and filed 1/31/16February 16, 2017 at 3:58 pm #4173870
On the website it shows that my refund was transmitted to my bank on 02/14/2017 but I havent received anything yet. Does anyone know how long that takes?February 16, 2017 at 7:28 am #4172851
Also I have noticed my Georgia state taxes always updated after12:00pm
I would check between 12:00 and 4pm
When the deposit message hit I checked it just after 12:00pm and 12:45pmFebruary 16, 2017 at 7:23 am #4172842
Hi guys I meant to update everyone I got my state refund yesterday!!
Less than the expected 90 days I’m sure once the peak of filing hits it will take a little longer.
Again I filed 1/27
Tax center deposit date of 2/16
To a prepaid card
I hoPE this info helps :)February 15, 2017 at 2:06 pm #4171587
I figured I would just drop my experience thus far and then let you know how this finishes. I am a new GA resident (moved here middle of last year), so this process is entirely new. I had the message “Your tax return has been received and is being processed. Please contact the Georgia Department of Revenue at 1- 877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) option 3 to speak with a Representative.”
Following the direction I 1.) Called Thursday and spoke with a representative that told me if I didn’t see a change on Monday to call back. 2.) Called back Monday morning and spoke with a representative that told me I should be getting a letter, probably that day or the next. Asked if it was a bad letter, and she told me it wasn’t, but wouldn’t give more information. 3.) Just called back, had a representative tell me she was transferring me to the review department (no clue why), waited twenty minutes for another representative to tell me that it wasn’t the review department and nothing was wrong with my account. He lets me know an adjustment was made to my refund, tells me one or two weeks and I should have my refund. After, I check my status online again , the message now says “Your tax return has been received and is being processed. Please allow 90 business days to complete processing”. I was also able to finally create an online account which it wouldn’t let me do before.
If anything else changes, I will post.February 14, 2017 at 1:16 pm #4169999
@IAMWaiting and @Macki So I guessed right per my previous msg to you guys:
I think you will get DD to show up on Thu 2/16.
@Toya I think your DD should be tom 2/15.February 14, 2017 at 1:00 pm #4169968
I am so confused..I filed 1/26. Will receive DD from Fed 2/15. I called GA this morning and the first rep was zero help…she said to wait 90 days. Second rep I spoke to asked me a few security questions and said i should receive refund in 45 days. My message on the GA site now changed from the “90 to process” to “please contact the GA department of revenue”. Is this normal? Do I really need to call back in since I literally did this 5 minutes ago. HELP! GA is the worst!!!February 14, 2017 at 12:55 pm #4169956
Ok I checked Georgia Tax Center at noon !!
The message changed I got a refund date of 2/16
@Toya I hope that helps you some and @IAMWAITING you should get yours soon.
I did call twice and both times they told me the system was processing my return and they could not access my return unless it was flagged.
Now keep in mind last year I had been flagged last year.
**I had moved and the address on one w2 and on my bank account flagged me**
I will post as soon as it hits the bank Try not to freak out its going to come usually before 90 daysFebruary 14, 2017 at 12:49 pm #4169945
FYI: If anyone isn’t seeing the app update, check the web version of WMR or GTC. The app still says my refund has been received and will be processed within 90 days (paraphrasing) but the online WMR has given me a DDD of 2/16. Had green negative balance on GTC yesterday, and balance of 0 this morning.February 14, 2017 at 11:16 am #4169844
@Toya I detailed every step and progress on here as it happened. So read my other previous posts. I hope it is helpful.February 14, 2017 at 11:07 am #4169835
@HeatherP did you ever see an actual Direct Deposit Date on Ga Tax Center?February 14, 2017 at 9:21 am #4169709
Got my DD overnight this early am, finally. Mine was accepted on first day 1/23 and I would still be waiting if I hadn’t called them after reading this blog. It takes about 3 business days for DD after you call to get approved.February 14, 2017 at 8:44 am #4169679
I also was approved on feb 11th. Called on Feb 13th and agent told me my refund was issued on the 10th but still in process. (whatever that means) My credit has also changed to zero this morning on Feb14th. I thought for sure I would have a DDD by now. I’m praying I will see the funds in my WF Acct in the morning. Even though I don’t have a DDD.February 14, 2017 at 7:54 am #4169649
@Mackie, my timeline is almost the same as yours.
Ga Accepted on 1/30
Approved on 2/11
Balance is at $0 when I logged in on 2/14
However, no DDD
Hoping I will get it by tomorrow.
Fingers crossed!February 14, 2017 at 7:21 am #4169623
This morning my balance went to 0.00 on the GTC website ( when I logged into my account) so maybe I will have it tomorrow. I will keep you guys posted.
Just to see what would be said I called
I spoke with Lisa who said My refund was still processing and could take up to 90 days but probably not that long.
In my experience I’ve called twice on my own I’ve had no flags to call
I did verify my identity last year and I provided my drivers license info for both parties on a joint return.
I hope this info is helpful.
Approved 2/12 ( but not given a ddd)
Balance changed on 2/14February 13, 2017 at 3:28 pm #4169019
@HeatherP Yes it was in my account this morning.February 13, 2017 at 1:57 pm #4168916
@ HeatherP I will let you guys know. Im really hoping for some movement today.February 13, 2017 at 12:47 pm #4168802February 13, 2017 at 12:39 pm #4168792
@IAMWaiting and @Macki I think you will get DD to show up on Thu 2/16.
@Toya Let us know when you get it. You are in same boat as me.February 13, 2017 at 12:23 pm #4168767
@GaGirlWaiting I am happy for you that you got it on 2/10. That was faster than the 2/13 date of today they gave you. Still waiting here even though refund amt disappeared on 2/10. WF usually shows refund same business day if deposit made before 4pm. So maybe it will show later today but probably tom. So the 2 diff dates they gave me was to tell me it was released 2/10 and expect DD on 2/14.February 13, 2017 at 12:16 pm #4168756
GA State accepted on 1/30. Status on where’s my refund stated “It has been received and to allow 90 days for procsssing”
On Saturday 2/11, status changed to “Your refund has been approved and final processing of a refund will be completed in the order that it was received. Please allow 90 business days. If it has been longer than 90 days then contact the Taxpayer Services Division at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am – 5 pm.”
How long aftter will I receive a DDD?February 13, 2017 at 12:09 pm #4168719
Well, I guess the refund was released on 2/10 since my green, negative amount disappeared then. So been waiting for it to show up in my WF bank acct but still nothing. I thought for sure it would today 2/13 after weekend. So it should tomorrow I hope.
Everyone should call them if it has been more than 2 weeks since they accepted regardless. This way you can get ahead of the game becoming verified and approved quicker.February 13, 2017 at 9:00 am #4168512
I went from the 90 day processing message to Your Refund is approved, please allow 90 days to process. I just called this morning asking about my status since I do see a credit. The rep said my refund had been issued on Friday and now I’m just waiting for it to process. I don’t understand if the refund has been issued what still needs to process? I hope I get a DDD today.February 12, 2017 at 4:08 pm #4168196
I use turbo tax to file
I filed 1/27/17
I got accepted on 1/28
I got approved on 2/11
I saw alot of posts saying to call and then they were approved I called last Thursday and I asked for info about my taxes because last year since I had moved I had to verify my identity.
The only info I got from my call was It was processing ,it could take up to 90 days ,and I had no flags on my taxes at that time.
So unless you get a message that’s says Call them
(Not the message that says if you have not received within 90 days then call)
Then I would just be patient
But that’s all the info I can help with :)February 12, 2017 at 1:26 pm #4168138
Just curious if anyone has received their GA refund? My state return was accepted 1/23 and I’ve had the same status ever since. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to call (according to this message) or if it’s just a blanket message.
“Your return has been received, and it is currently being processed. Please contact the Taxpayer Services Division at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am -5pm.”February 11, 2017 at 1:30 pm #4167538
@shereal yes it was in my account this morning.February 11, 2017 at 12:26 pm #4167468
@GaGirlWaiting Did u receive yours already?February 11, 2017 at 8:54 am #4167263
@HeatherP Yesterday I decided to login to wmr to see if my negative balance was 0.00 and it was so I knew that it had been released. Just checked my account and it was in there :)February 10, 2017 at 8:54 pm #4167008
Update. Good news, but this is a little strange, got 2 different dates. Just got email notification just now from GTC:
You are receiving this message because you have opted-in for notifications. Your refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/10/2017. Please allow 10 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.
But when I login to GTC and click WMR, it says:
Your refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/14/2017. Please allow 10 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.February 10, 2017 at 5:27 pm #4166909
@GaGirlWaiting Thanks, I did sign up for email notification on GTC, so will be on alert for that email. Will post with update. I also have DD for WF bank but haven’t worked/filed in over 5 years. So she said that she sees setup for DD but a check could be mailed to my address on return (not old address on my driver’s license).
I guess the big difference of calling is to get it approved from being processed status. Then the spiel that it could still take 30-90 days.
This is infuriating that we have to call and not be told about this to help progress and approve faster.February 10, 2017 at 4:18 pm #4166826
@HeatherP yes that was my same experience. You should receive your ddd tonight some time.February 10, 2017 at 3:19 pm #4166782
I just called Georgia to see if there was something that i could do to release the funds and she stated that Georgia is taking extra precautions this year and I will receive a letter to verify my information and refund amount online and will then release my funds? Has anyone else had to do this. Even after I verified everything on the phone with her.February 10, 2017 at 2:37 pm #4166721
GA return accepted: 1/23/17
It’s green on GTC site.
Federal return accepted 1/17/17, DD 2/1/17.
I just called GTC just now, 877-423-6711 option 3, then 3. It was really quick even though msg says longer hold time. She asked my info and then after 1 minute hold she said basically same thing that WMR now says:
Your refund has been approved and final processing of a refund will be completed in the order that it was received. Please allow 90 business days. If it has been longer than 90 days then contact the Taxpayer Services Division at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a customer service representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am – 5 pm.
So pretty much same msg just a lot more extra words from previous:
Please allow 90 business days to complete processing.
So please give any input if this is same experience or have info….February 10, 2017 at 1:56 pm #4166679
I initially got the 90 day message. Filed on 1/26 and accepted on 1/27. I called the 1-877-423-6711 number and initially got nowhere. Today I called back and chose Opt 3 then Opt 3 again. When the representative answered, I asked if I needed to verify any information on my return. She asked a few identifying information, placed me on hold for 3 minutes. When she came back, she told me my return was approved and the funds would be released for payment within 30 days.February 9, 2017 at 10:38 pm #4165780
@shereal Good point. Well Monday is not too far, that is when I needed it by. At least we know it’s coming.February 9, 2017 at 10:29 pm #4165776
@gagirl mines is going to USAA. I hope it comes early but since it will be only one business day between now and then it will probably come that day.February 9, 2017 at 10:20 pm #4165738
@shereal I got the same ddd not too long ago when it updated. Plz let me know when you receive yours, mine is going in my wf bank account.February 9, 2017 at 8:52 pm #4165436
Called last week and agent just gave me 90 day message, so I tried again today after seeing everyone post. She ask me my info and my return was approved. Just checked GTC and I have DDD for 2/13.February 9, 2017 at 8:05 pm #4165304
GA return accepted: 1/23/17
It’s green on GTC and WMR still says:
Your tax return has been received and is being processed. Please allow 90 business days to complete processing.
I’ll call them to verify tomorrow even though not asked to.
Federal return accepted 1/17/17, DD 2/1/17.February 9, 2017 at 3:52 pm #4164523
Omg I called and verified my info, she didn’t ask why I was calling like the last rude lady that gave me the 90 day msg…anyway she approved it and said give it 30 days which I’m sure it’ll be sooner.February 9, 2017 at 3:52 pm #4164514
Well I just took everyone’s advice and called. Well the rep looked at my taxes and came back and said she was removing my deductions from my schedule A for my taxes for my home and bills from a car accident that hasn’t been taken care of by the other insurance yet. To make a long story short, she gave me the standard deduction and said that I owe instead of getting a refund. I will need to send receipts to get my refund back once she generates the letter to me. I”m so thoroughly upset right now. If only I had not called, I may still have my refund….smh!!February 9, 2017 at 2:24 pm #4164494
To anyone that’s having the 90 day speech from the representative, just call again and ask if there is any information missing from your return. They’ll have to check and they will tell you everything is clear and will process the return right then and there.February 9, 2017 at 1:48 pm #4164264
I am so upset with GA I have heard from several that they called and approved in minutes. I called and told them I was having problems with mine online. They didn’t want to check mine at first, finally checked and gave the ninety day speech so unfair some people are calling and getting approved on the spot. I want my money so I can go play with the dinosaurs. :)>Federal and state are jerks this year keeping my money.February 9, 2017 at 12:49 pm #4163941
I called this morning and just asked about my status, she placed me on hold and came back 2 minutes later to tell me she processed and approved my refund.February 9, 2017 at 10:55 am #4163676
I just tried to call the 1-877 number for an update but the recording stated that due to high call volumes, try your call again later. The phone hung up after that! I’m so frustrated with this tax year. I filed 1/26/17 with the same generic 90 day processing message on the website.February 9, 2017 at 10:50 am #4163657
I just tried to call the 1-877-423-6711 and I got no where. The phone rung a couple of times and then the recording said due to high call volumes, please try your call again later and promptly hung up on me. I’m so frustrated with this tax year….this is ridiculous!! I filed and was accepted 1/26/17.February 9, 2017 at 9:33 am #4163518
WMR states they “mailed” my check on Feb 2nd. It is still not here and they are telling me I have to wait 15 business days before they will issue another. I mailed something to Michigan from Georgia on the same date and it has already been received and deposited so I know it doesn’t take that long for the mail to get where it is going within the State of Georgia. Does anyone know anything about how long it actually takes to receive an actual check? (By the way, getting a check was a mistake made by my tax preparer who I will not go back to next year).February 9, 2017 at 9:06 am #4163489
I called this morning, but the person I talked to was no help. She simply gave me the up to 90 days speech.February 8, 2017 at 6:24 am #4161747
Yep My money has been DD onto to bank account today. Whoo!!
For anyone that is anxious, I’m a first time GA tax payer. See y’all next year!February 7, 2017 at 11:37 pm #4161681
Filed : 1/27
Just got my money on prepaid nowFebruary 7, 2017 at 8:59 pm #4161591
@amber and @ GF_Umji
Called today was put on hold while she processed it and immediately went to to approved last steps status message just wondering how long until I receive a DVD. I’m hoping to have one tomorrow for Thursday.February 7, 2017 at 6:55 pm #4161511
I called the number, spoke with a representative and she looked up my info, put me on hold for about 15 minutes and then told me she approved my refund. The very next day I went to ga’s wheres my refund and had DDD for the February 8 (tomorrow). The representative said it could take up to a month though. I’m hoping I do get it tomorrow though :)February 7, 2017 at 6:25 pm #4161481
Called, was approved the moment I got off the phone, was given a DDD thay night.February 7, 2017 at 6:04 pm #4161465
@GF_Umji and @amber
How long from approved until DDD?February 7, 2017 at 2:19 pm #4161260
@Helpful Nero – nope, I’ve been filing taxes in Georgia for over 30 years. They did not have an explanation for me as to why it did not get direct deposited.February 7, 2017 at 2:07 pm #4161225
@kathyarzola All first-time Georgia income tax filers, or taxpayers who have not filed in Georgia for at least five years, will receive a paper check.
if that fits you hunt down your mailbox, if not call em up.February 7, 2017 at 12:48 pm #4161153
Finally got a DDD for tomorrow. Yay.February 7, 2017 at 10:15 am #4160990
I pressed option #3 then option #3 again.February 7, 2017 at 10:02 am #4160917
How is anyone able to get to a live person? I have tried all morning? Thanks!February 7, 2017 at 8:13 am #4160454
Anyone having issues with the refund App? It is telling me that my refund is still being processed but the actual website tells me that a check was mailed on Feb 2. Not sure what to believe and I can’t get through to a live person.February 7, 2017 at 7:31 am #4160427
“Your refund is scheduled to be transmitted, or was transmitted, to your designated bank account on 2/8/2017. Please allow 10 business days from that date and verify your designated account information to confirm receipt.

Whoo hoo! I hope I get it tomorrow! Fingers crossed 🤞February 7, 2017 at 12:08 am #4160316

How long between getting approved and getting a DDD?February 6, 2017 at 6:06 pm #4160064
@Mariah, DD posted at 6 a.m. this morning. I have a traditional bank. I too had to call an actual person and have my return released. I had no issues and file the same way every year.February 6, 2017 at 3:00 pm #4159935
I spoke with another representative and she approved me after waiting for 15 minutes (put on hold) and she said my refund will be in bank account within 30 days!February 6, 2017 at 2:59 pm #4159932
I was hold for several minutes as well but it is worth the wait.
Now I just hope I see some more movement in the next few days.
I wonder how long it takes to actually get the money from the day you are actually approved.
My son’s birthday party is Saturday and I could really use the extra funds.February 6, 2017 at 2:54 pm #4159929
I was on the phone with a representative and she put me on hold for 10 minutes. I will call back tomorrow and hope I get another representative.
