    I’m glad some are getting results. My msg changed this morning to call the 877 number. I had just talked to them yesterday, now have to wait till Monday and call again. Changing my G-4 next week to have 0 taken out the rest of the year. They will not be using my money again.

    I filed 2/5, was accepted by federal 2/6, accepted by Georgia 2/8. Received my federal refund Thursday the 18th, and have a DDD for Georgia for 2/23.

    I talked to a rep today also. Not sure what they are telling others, but I was told a CS rep. can not release your refund. I was told there were no problem with my return, but it was being held and it would take 6-8 weeks even if you efiled. I ask why there were some who filed 2 weeks after the ones that filed on 1/19 and was accepted on 1/20, he said he did not know. Here’s my theory, I am retired from the State of Georgia, worked 32 years with them. In the years where teachers and State employees got a big raise, and that is what has been approved for this fiscal year, a 3% raise, they have held back refunds during those years.

    Per DOR Pulse, 281385 refunds issued to date, compared to 569808 same time last year.

    I too had the generic processing message until this morning. The 877 number was listed to call when I looked this morning. I called, they verified personal info as well as employer from last year and then said they would release my refund and I could expect it within the next 30 business days.

    I’ve been checking the status pretty much everyday, each day it had the generic please allow 6-8 weeks for your refund to be sent to you. Today I checked, and it gave me the 1-800 number and told me to choose option 3. I called, was on hold for over 40 minutes. I finally got a rep on the phone, she asked my social security number, my name, address, expected refund amount, and where i worked last year, and then she said she released my refund. She said to allow 30 days for my return to be sent to me, but the turnaround time was about 2 weeks. She also said that Georgia has everyone’s refund on hold, and that they just now started releasing them. Maybe that will calm some of all of you guys’ fears. :) If it’s helpful, I filed 1/13. Both federal and state were accepted on 1/19. Got my federal deposited in my account on 2/3, but still waiting on my state. Maybe they’ll give me my money back soon!

    Went from the 6-8 week message to this..

    Your return has been received and is currently being processed, please allow 30 days to receive your refund. If your refund has not been received in 30 days, please log on to the Georgia Department of Revenue website at http://dor.ga.gov/ complete the Replacement Check Request Form and follow the instructions.

    Now I checked and it’s has a DDD for 2/22

    I meant to type 1/20, not 2/20. Mine shows a credit in green, not sure what that means, but it seems a lot of the refunds are ready they are just holding them back. By law they can hold them for 90 days before they have to start paying interest.

    #4139254 Reply

    We are all in the same boat! No movement over night or throughout the day. Showing they owe us but it seems to be never coming. I was accepted 1/20 been sitting at 6-8 week message for 3 weeks???? This is out of control now. It’s my last year! I can’t mess with GA – it’s like they are trying to collect interest on us.

    They update once a day, overnight. I think yes, it’s business days, so with the holiday coming Monday all of us that were accepted on 2/20 will be looking at the first week in March before getting refunds. This will be the last year they use my money. I’m retired and do not owe State income tax, I’ll be changing my G-4 to have 0 taken out.

    Does anyone know what time of day ga updates sytems…once a day…all day…never???? Filed and accepted 1/20 and still have 6-8 wk message. Im sure it will be after 30 days but is that business days?

    Hopefully, we are starting to see some movement on refunds. As of yesterday, the DOR site showed that they had issued 1,056 refunds this year. That number jumped to nearly 50,000 overnight. I don’t know if there was some issue that has been resolved or what, but fingers crossed that they start issuing refunds quickly from here on out. Just for reference, the site said that at this point last year, they had issued over 700,000 refunds.

    I am stuck on the 6 to 8 week message. My account shows a neg balance in the amount of my expected refund. I’m hoping to see that go to $0 and then see a DD shortly after!

    February 11, 2016
    ATLANTA, GA- In accordance with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) the Georgia Department of Revenue began accepting individual tax returns on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 and will extend the deadline to Monday, April 18, 2016. The Department of Revenue takes every measure to process tax returns in a timely manner. Due to issues during 2015 regarding security breaches of third party preparers and the constant threat of tax fraud and refund theft, the Department of Revenue is taking additional fraud prevention measures this filing season to ensure tax refunds are issued to the correct individuals. These additional measures may create the need to further review a tax return, and ultimately extend the time between when an individual files their tax return and when they receive their tax refund. Individuals who file error-free, electronic returns may receive their refund within 30 – 45 days from their file date. Individuals who do not file electronically, or error free, may take six to eight weeks from their file date to receive their refund.

    “Our primary goal is to protect the taxpayers of the State of Georgia,” said Josh Waites, Director of the Department of Revenue’s Office of Special Investigations. “We determined from the 2015 filing season that the additional time between the taxpayer filing their tax return and receiving their refund allows us to better detect fraudulent returns, and ultimately get the refund to the individual it belongs to.”

    The Georgia Department of Revenue also offers taxpayers the ability to track their refund through the “Where’s my refund?” feature on the Georgia Tax Center.

    It seems like if that is what they are waiting on they would say that when we call instead of just saying “it is processing”. This processing time is the worst ive experienced since i started filing my taxes.

    Also the where’s my refund is still showing “Your return has been received. Please contact the Taxpayer Services Division Individual Section at 1-877-GADOR11 (1-877-423-6711) to speak to a Taxpayer Services Representative during our normal business hours M-F 8am -5pm” So don’t rely on that to update for information regarding your deposit. My tax center account balance did go to $0.00 though.

    Up until last Thursday I could see my credit listed on my account, then I was asked to send my W2 which I promptly faxed, I was told it would take about 12 weeks to process. Friday I called to verify they received the W2 and I noticed that my account showed a balance. I spoke to a rep and she told me they received the W2 and that it would take them at least 3-4 weeks to process, once I asked her about the balance showing on my account she told me to hold on and came back and told me she was going to go ahead and push my refund through because everything on my W2 matched. She told me that I should receive my funds in 30-45 days but I received them this morning.

    So – following the posts I didn’t understand seeing the credit either, so I created a login :). However, I have a NEGATIVE $5.00 credit. I owed back taxes, so it appears they credited my refund this year to the debt as the numbers make sense for this…However, I thought they were going to offset my federal refund for the full amount. Before I even filed w/ state or federal, the IRS offset line listed the debt w/ the state, so I’m sure they submitted the full amount to IRS. Is it typical for them to take from state refund, then let IRS know the difference owed??

    I have seen several posters mention being able to see a credit when they log into their GA Tax Center account. How do you create an account?

    Also, early last week I had the “your return has been recieved, please call and speak with a rep” message. I spoke with someone who said that my return had been processed, the refund had been approved, and that they were in the process of generating the tefund. A couple of days later I started getting the “6 to 8 weeks” message. Any ideas when I may see a refund?
