I was accepted by NYS on 2/1, under 90 day review for 10 weeks. Just updated five days ago to final stages of processing. But from what I’m reading that doesn’t mean I’m in the clear, some people are getting an audit message after the final stages. Has anyone else gotten this?Theresa
I got my 10 day notice, they asked for a copy of my w2. I faxed yesterday and they say i will receive correspondence within 30 days. I think i entered something incorrectly. Hope it doesn’t take too long to make necessary correctionsnelly
still stuck on the 90 day message in NY anyone elseKT22
I just got my DDD for Federal (with the offset amount) of 2/24 but my NYS updated from the “4-6 weeks” message to “We have received your return and it is being processed. No further information is available at this time.”
Ugh. I am not even in a huge hurry to get the refund, I just want to know if I am being audited!
You’re right. I forgot they don’t go through Republic anymore. They used to though. That I do know. I remember my accountant saying they switched at one point. I remember even when they went through BofA. But yes its probably the same thing. I talked to more people on the Facebook page and they said the same thing. Still nothing today hut I’m hoping for tomorrow early morning. I’ll still keep checking every so often. And I’ll see if I can find a number for the bank. But thank you again!! I appreciate it!Anonymous
@ Danielle Liberty uses JTH financial I don’t know the number for them tho and fees aren’t taken out of state however they still have it go thru their bank to be deposited to you. And you are very welcome. I’m sorry I don’t know the number for JTH I’m sure if u Google it, something will come up tho.
Thank you both! Yes, I use Liberty Tax and I’m almost certain they use Republic Bank and yes, fees were being taken out but I didn’t know they take fees out of the state? I thought they took the fees from federal?? Or is it both?? That does make sense though. I’ve been checking throughout the day so maybe it’ll come in later. I normally get deposits on Saturday with my bank so if I don’t receive it today do you think its possible I’d receive it tomorrow being a Saturday? Or not until Monday? And anyone gave the number for Republic bank so I can call and check if that’s the case??? Again, thank you both for the help! Lots of people are receiving them the following day or later in the day so that’s probably why.Jkrow47(not logged in)
@Danielle My DDD was the 17th and I received it in my bank on the 18th. I was able to see it at Republic the morning of the 17th because I had fees taken out so I knew it had been sent that day. However, Green Dot doesn’t post until the next day despite what they say, so I didn’t get it until the 18th. So I’m sure it has been sent but depending on your bank’s policies and how long it takes them to receive it will determine when it’s in your account. Note that the NYS website says it will be deposited ON said DDD, unlike Federal that says BY. So it may take a little longer since it was just sent today so keep checking.Anonymous
@ Danielle my ddd was for Thursday and I did receive it on that day however it was at 445 pm and I later found out why that was, Taxact set it up to go to their bank Republic first and then to me on my Rushcard. All along I thought it would come directly to my account but it didn’t so if u used a preparer such as them that might be the issue. I found out it went to the preparer when I called NYS taxation and finance. Good luck to U!
So I posted the other day how everything was good and how 2 days ago I finally updated to getting my DDD for Fri 2/19, which is today. Well low and behold I don’t have my refund deposited! I knew right at 5am when it wasn’t in my bank account that something was wrong. Every year I’ve gotten my deposits on time when I was supposed to, no issues. I don’t understand what’s going on this year. Tons of people are having this problem with both their federal and state refunds not getting deposited when they’re supposed to. Some people think the fact that Monday was a holiday so that’s why some are getting pushed back an extra day, and apparently that’s what the IRS told some people about their federal. If I get it the day after, whatever, not the end if the world but who knows if itkk take longer than that. Plus being as it’s Friday that additional DAT won’t be tomorrow most likely. Probably Monday. I don’t believe they deposit on Saturdays. I also checked with my bank to see if I had any deposits pending and happentely nothing. Has anyone gotten theirs deposited later in the day?? Like in the afternoon? I always get deposits by 4am but heard people were getting them a few hrs later too. Ugh this is so frustrating! Finally a DDD after all this time and waiting for this to happen! Fingers crossed this doesn’t happen to anyone else!
Wanted to post my update. Thank God I have one lol
The NY state refund site literally JUST updated at 2pm with a DDD for Fri 2/19. So again proof that NYS updates throughout the day and not just overnight or in the morning. Most of my updates have been coming in later in the day. And I’ve been checking it all day like every hour BC I knew it was supposed to update to a DDD by today.
So I filed on 1/21. Not absolutely sure when I was accepted by state. Federal was 1/22. But when I checked on my state on 1/26 it was already in the 4-6 weeks to process message. Then a few days later I got the 90 day review message. That lasted a week until last Monday 2/8 when it updates to the final stages of processing message. Today was day 10 on the final stages when I just got my DDD of 2/19, 2 days from now. So this years total time for my state will be 4 weeks 1day.
*I will say that everyone I’ve spoke to has been on the final stages of processing update for 7-10 days before updating to a DDD. So once you receive that update count 7-10 days and that’s when you can expect it to give you your DDD. Also, once you get your DDD its always either the following day or 2 days later. Again, that’s been true for everyone I’ve spoken to. So that might help some people as far as a time frame goes on when to expect their money.
I will update once More when I receive my deposit on Friday and then I’m gone until next year! Well, at least on this thread. I’m still waiting on federal since I have to file injured spouse but that’s a whole other ball game.
I had the same 4-6 week message requiring further review first. No audit or issues yet. First message I got was that it was accepted, then the 4-6 weeks further review, then I got the 90 days message a few days later. Then last Monday I got the final stages of processing and have been on that for 9 days now. I should move to a DDD any day now. Was hoping today or tomorrow. Most people are on the final stages message for 7-9 days. I filed on 1/21. Not positive what day it was accepted but I checked the site for the first time on 1/26 and it already was. Thursday will be 4 weeks. It seems it’s taking everyone a minimum of 3-4 weeks this year.momof3nyc
I finally received my dd this morning for state refundKT22
Filed 2/10, accepted 2/11. Federal WMR still on first bar but NYS shows message (first seen on 2/14) stating that our return required further review and would take probably 4 but maybe up to 6 weeks. I have seen other people posting about a similar message for 90 days but not many about this 4-6 weeks one.
I know we owe from last year due to a late W2 that disqualified us from some of our credits. I spoke with someone the day before I filed and she said that they would just automatically take it from our return this year- which is fine. It’s a little less than half of the total (state and federal) so could this be the cause for our review? Or is it unrelated? I am very anxious because this year I self reported (a very small amount of) income from a home business- did NOT claim a loss however. Just my luck that this would be an audit!
Still no update for me yet but my last updates didn’t come in until later morning or afternoon so I’m trying not to worry yet. F I don’t see an update in a few hrs with a DDD I’m going to definitely be stressing.Aaron
Good morning @indy
Any changes on your “10 days Correspondence” status, any update this morning ?
Has anybody had any updates since Friday morning? I know federal updates on Saturdays but wasn’t sure if state did. A few people told me that they were open on Saturday and today even though today is a holiday, but again, not sure if that’s just federal or state as well. I was expecting to move to a DDD today or tomorrow and so far nothing today but it could be BC of the holiday. I really hope it updates tomorrow and doesn’t get pushed back another day BC of the holiday. Most people who work for the state have off on all holidays so I don’t see why they’d be open today.Theresa
So checked status this morning and back to 10 day notice. Does anyone know for sure this means audit? Has anyone ever had this message change, or receive part or all of their refund before receiving notice? The only thing different o
With my filing is i did not claim my daughter as she did not live with me this year. I still claimed my son thoughTheresa
This morning I moved into final stage, this afternoon I had the 10 correspondence notice, now it says We do not have any information about your return at this time.
Anyone know what this means?Aaron
@indy thanks for the update if anything changes I let you know asap
So I called to get my amended amount since they said they said it was changed, and the lady told me I was in the final stages of processing. It still says the same thing as before on WMR (amended amount with DDD) so I read her the message I have on the WMR that says the amount was amended but with a DDD and she didn’t know what was going on. Then she put me on hold to I guess try to see what was going on, but we got disconnected, and when I called back I kept getting a busy signal when trying to be transferred to a rep until they closed jut a minute ago. I’m so frustrated. What the hell is going on? Why would the system tell her I’m still in “final stages”?momof3nyc
@Danielle thanks, I will check with the bank I am just using the banks dd system, hopefully it will be there by tomorrow. I did log into my banks website however and didn’t see any pending deposits
I haven’t received mine so far this year, but in the past mine was always deposited into my account in the middle of the night. I usually wake up around 6am EST and its always been in there by then. I’ve heard for federal that the deposit tines are varying based on what card you’re using to have it DD. if its your bank, netspend, rushcard, emerald card, etc. If its your bank call and see if they received it and if its pending.momof3nyc
filed 1/15/16 received my federal on 2/3. I initially had the under review 90 day message for my state, It then changed after a week to final stages of processing . on 2/8 status changed again to a ddd of 2/12. Checked this morning and the money is not in my account as of yet! Is there a specific time that the state makes dd’s?
Well so far no change for me this morning. I’m trying to stay hopeful though considering my last few updates gave came in later in the morning after 10am. There’s been quite a few people getting updates even later in the afternoon so even though its not there yet, there’s still a chance! I’m crossing my fingers for you to get yours!
The IRS is really open on Monday being a holiday? Even for NY state? If so that’s awesome! I knew they were open on Saturdays but I don’t see many people getting updated on WMR on Saturdays. If I don’t get my DDD today then my guess is Monday or Tuesday. Its only been 5 days now that I’ve been stuck on the final stages of processing update. Only….lol But for the length of time most people sit on it its not a lot. It seems like most people sit on it for 6-9 days. SovMonday will be day 8. Then I’d probably get a DDD of Wednesday or Thursday like I originally was estimating. Keep me/us posted! I’m curious to see if you updated to your DDD!Aaron
@indy any updates on “10 day correspondence”
letter thing did you get a letter from NYS thanksAnonymous
@danielle i am really hoping for good news in the morning but the way things are going this year…who knows whats liable to happen. Heres to hoping we both get a DDD tomorrow!???? And btw the IRS will be open sat. And Monday!
Last year mine was deposited on a Thursday. I don’t remember how long prior to getting it I got the DDD update though. I want to say it was only 2-3 days. Most people seem to be getting their update with a DDD for it to be deposited 2 business days later. I have seen a few people have it update to be deposited the following day. I do remember last year I got mine exactly 3 weeks after I filed. Today was my 3 weeks. In the previous years though its been about 4 weeks so that’s what I’m guessing will happen. Probably will get updated with a DDD Tuesday morning for Thursday, especially if there’s no updates on Monday being a holiday. I’m not positive if that’s the case but I’m assuming the IRS wouldn’t work on a holiday. Maybe I’ll get lucky and wake up to a DDD tomorrow morning! Here’s to everyone getting theirs!!Anonymous
@ Danielle same here…for some reason i think my Nys only updates overnight and my DDD has always been for Tuesday following the Friday that i receive my DDD. This year it seems as though they are doing updates and DDD everyday and throughout the day. It may have been that way but this is my first year being on a NYS group so im not sure if it has.
See I knew it updated later throughout the day! Still no change for me. I filed earlier than a lit of people who already received their DDD. Filed 1/21. I know I was accepted the following day by federal but I dk if that means state was accepted that day too. It definitely seems vlike most people are sitting on the final stages of processing for about a week and then get the DDD (or that stupid 10 day letter). So if I don’t update to a DDD tomorrow I’m praying it will after the weekend.
If you received a ddd then you should be clear. I was audited last year and the status said I would receive letter in 10 days then it switched to audit status.Bparekr
I am experiencing the same as many..awaiting my NYS refund. I filed on 1/23, accepted 1/24 then went to under review 90 day msg. As of yesterday it states that my refund has been processed, if accepted I will receive a payment date. So I am curious to see how long the message stays like that. I am also nervous b/c some of you mentioned receiving the 10day notice msg…it’s stressful waiting, especially when it’s needed. NYS !!
@amuz I received the same update and DDD. I don’t have a tax bill though. So since I have a DDD, am I in the clear for audit?
I checked my status again and it updated sometime this afternoon. I have a ddd for 2/17. It also says it is being adjusted but I think that is due to a small tax bill from last year. I will keep you posted.
No ddd update for me either. I have been on final stages for the last 11 days. It’s the only message I have ever gotten since being accepted February 1st.
Glad to see more DDD today for people! Unfortunately I’m not one of them today. As o far today I’m still stuck on final stages of processing and its day 4 for that. I totally wasn’t thinking about Monday being a holiday either. So does that Mean there won’t be any updates on Monday? I know banks will be closed so people with their DDD should get them Friday or Tuesday at the latest. If I don’t get updated to a DDD message tomorrow then I’m really crossing my fingers that I’ll get it by Monday or Tuesday BC of the holiday. Again, congrats to those who hot their DDD or refunds this morning!Anonymous
@patient…. Yes it will post Friday! Congrats!patient…not really
I filed 1-31 and final stages of processing was the only screen I ever had when I check. today I got a ddd for 2-16 .. my bank normally send it 2 days early do you think it will be there Friday since Monday is a holiday?Aaron
Filed 1/31 accepted couple hours later I got “10 day correspondence” thing since 1/31 never changed and there is no correspondence in last 10 days I do work 10 hrs a day and 6 days a week therefore no time call and hold on phone more than couple a minute so are they really stalling ? any idea fellow sufferers ?Anonymous
And…the year before last my NY DDD was sceduled for The day after Presidents day which is Monday Feb.15 this year however my DD came on my Netspend card that Friday before which was either Valentines day or the day before so if u get a DDD of Feb.16 from Ny look for your money on Feb. 12 if u use a prepaid card that does early deposits.Anonymous
I really wish there were more New Yorkers in this group also. But based on what im seeing you can stay at final stages for about a week and then update to a ddd or 10 day correspondence. Im hoping for the DDD. Im not clear on what the 10 day thing is about. Ive seen different answers for it.
Thank you to everyone who updated! It gives me more hope now lol.
As far as the time it updates, I’ve seen mine update at different times. My first updates were coming in overnight. When I got updated on Monday to final stages of processing I checked it that morning at 6am and 7am and no updates but then I checked it again after 9-10am and it had updated to the final stages. So BC of that I’ve been checking throughout the day and not just first thing in the morning. I know WMR for federal seems to only update at night-overnight.
And as far as how long I’ll be sitting on the final stages of processing, I can handle a week or so if when I get my DDD Its only 2days later. According to what everyone’s saying, it looks like there’s a good possibility I’ll get mine by next weekend. Getting a DDD today and it bring on the 11th is just 2 days later so that’s no bad at all. Again, thank you for the updates everyone!
I don’t know how they update. I see some people are updated throughout the day, but mine also seem to be overnight. I was accepted on 2/1 and received final stages status immediately. I have had the same message ever since. I really don’t know what to make of it because I never had it happen like this before. I do wish there were more people on this NY forum to update on the or statuses so that we could stay informed.Anonymous
I filed on the 15th of Jan. Was accepted on the 21st. Processing until on or about the 28th. Recieved the review message until on or about feb.4 am currently in final stages since that day. My question is does NYS updte in real time? I have seen several people getting updates throughout the day. Or is that just for some people? It seems like my updates only occur overnight.Nys ddd
@danielle. I filed 1/30, went to final stages immediately sat like that for 9 days. Just updated for me today with a ddd of 2/11
Should I only be concerned if it tells me to expect a letter? I don’t want to call them unless I have to. So far mine seems to be moving along, just slowly. From what I understood since I’m still stuck on “your return is in its final stages of processing”, I should get either a message telling me that I should get et a DDD within 10 days or get the message with the DDD stating its approved. I wish I knew how long to expect to be on the final stages of processing message. It changed to that for me around 9am Monday morning 2/8 so I was hoping by today or tomorrow I’d see some movement. Tomorrow will be 3 weeks and I was really hoping on having it deposited by next weekend. Nobody seems to have answers or there’s just not enough activity going on in this particular forum.
My 90 day review turned into “Final Stages” and then “Return has completed processing. 10 days you’ll get a letter yada yada”. I called and finally got someone to tell me that the letter is requesting verification of wages and withholding.
Just FYI to those who are going through the same thing. I think they are stalling.
I filed my return on 1/21. The first time I checked the status of it was 1/26 and it said it was processing and could take up to 4-6 weeks. Then last week on 2/2 it changed to the 90 days message. Yesterday, 2/8, it finally moved to the final stages of processing. How long should I expect it to be in the final stages before getting a DDD? And once it gives you a DDD how long does it typically take? A few days? A week? Longer? I usually receive my state refund pretty quickly. Last year was 22 days after I filed. My husband and I have to file injured spouse BC of my student loan debt so I don’t get federal until at least sometime in March, so I rely on state getting us by until then. Has anyone received their NY state yet or got their DDD?Millie
Any updates .!? My state return has been under review with the 90 day message since 1/29/16 .when i call them all they can tell me that nothing is wrong with my return. Anyone in this forum going through the same issue?NYRefundHelp
Does anyone else have a NY DDD for 2/8 and not have the money today? I use Wells.
IF I had an offset for state (don’t think so), would my status still say sent to bank 2/8 and check if not received…?Aaron
@jkrow47 so it is a very very bad news !
@aaron and @indy From what I’ve been able to gather that means they’ll ask for additional info. Now I’m scared. I hope I don’t get that. I thought I was good when it changed to “final stages”.aaron
I got “your return has completed processing.you will receive correspondence about your return within 10 business days” message ….is this a very bad news ?
I went from “90 days” to “Final Stages” to “Your return has completed processing. You will receive correspondence about your return within 10 business days.”
I accidentally transposed a digit which led to me claiming to have paid less taxes than I did, but it would result in a higher refund, not a lower one. Any chance they caught this and corrected it? Or did I just trigger an audit?jkrow47 (not logged in)
@sharon Almost everyone I’ve seen filing from NY has gotten that message. It will probably change soon to “final stages” or a DDD.jkrow47 (not logged in)
My status updated to “final stages of processing.” Thank goodness.Sharon
I had return accepted 1/26. Now tonight it gave me the 90 day message….should I be concerned?il I file same every year. 2 dependents, head of household and education credit. Ugh….why?????Millie
@ jkrow. That means our state return was randomly selected for further review only to be in limbo waiting for a staff member to manually review it . This is a tactic they use to detect any type of fraud or credits that you are not entitled to but still claimed on your return. Thats why they state it can take up to 90 days.nothing you say or do will expedite the process.I will just pretend that my refund is in the bank (savings account). Im in no rush because its god’s plan.
Got the “90-day review” message. Ugh.Millie Padilla
Filed 1/19/16 accepted 1/22/16 had the we have received your return and it is being processed message until 1/29/16.Then woke up to see the dreadful message We have received your return and it required further review which can take up to 90 days to comlete Blah blah blah.. These mofos better stop playing with my money!!NY State approved
NY personal refund accepted 1/21/16 (surprised me, I thought they weren’t going to be ready until 1/26/16) Very strange this year as my first status was “in final stages of processing….” All us NYers know it’s generally at least a week or two of “accepted and being processed” Woke up this morning with approved and DDD 2/2/16 !! Very shocked and happy. Especially since last 2 years I’ve been audited by state. Now if my federal would just move past 1 bar. I’ve never had NY state before federal!Amanda
I live in NY and was aware I had an offset with them. My state refund was more then enough to cover I was just noticed they are taking the money from my federal and my state and there is nothing I can do but in about 90 days I can request the extra money be refunded back to me.. ErrNichole
I’m sorry, I meant to say it was received on either 1/19 or 1/20…Nichole
I filed on 1/14 and it was received on either 2/19 or 2/20. I live in upstate New York. When I track it, it just says it was received and no further information is available. I don’t think I have ever gotten my State before Federal but I am wondering if anybody has any more info on when they will start approving them?Kimberly
How did your state get accepted? I’m getting a message that they aren’t accepting till 1/29dietrajones
