    Filed and accepted 3-17 stage 4 today.

    #4477557 Reply

    So I went back to stage 1 yesterday and now I’m at stage 3 today. I mailed my return so I’m waiting on the check but hopefully it comes next week sometime. Anybody ever got a state refund check in the mail?

    #4476816 Reply

    I just went to stage 2 today, I mailed in my return. Does anyone know how long it takes to go to stage 3/4 or how long it’ll be before I receive my refund?

    NC Refund hit bank account this afternoon. I never thought NC refund would hit before federal.

    Mine changed to stage 2 3 days ago and I checked it just now and I am back at stage 1. Says if I don’t receive it in 60 days, call the 1800 number. Anybody know why it’d go back instead of forward?

    Just reached Stage 4 (it hasn’t hit my account yet).

    @kyo I’ve never gotten my nc state 1st. This will be the first time ever. Just to let u know mine went into stage 3 early Friday morning and changed today to refund sent or stage 4. So about 3 days in between those stages (business days)

    Nice, did you get your money when it went to stage 4?

    Checked the NC refund site and it says i moved to stage 4 to allow 10 days for the refund to show up in my account. This is the first year I will have ever received my state before federal.

    I was on stage 1 until Saturday it changed to stage 2 and today it changed to stage 3. I guess I’m getting NC before my federal for once…

    #4462919 Reply

    Mine says issued to bank account. Come on serve and post it to my card!

    #4462837 Reply

    Now mine is showing as Stage 3.

    #4462703 Reply

    Does anyone know how long it takes to receive NC state refund after you switch to stage 3?

    #4462661 Reply

    I been at stage 2 for over a week and went back to stage one on 3/01/21…saying it can take up to 60 days….what is going on???

    #4462616 Reply

    Mine also went from 2 to 1 for about 2 days then to stage 3 for about 3 days I got my refund on the 24th from NC. Still waiting on federal.

    #4462559 Reply

    I filed Federal and State on 2/4; Federal accepted–2/13; State accepted–2/16. I got my Federal refund on 2/22 (though my WMR status never updated). My State status went from nothing to Stage 2 on 2/26. Tonight it’s showing Stage 1.

    Lucky you! NC is usually extremely slow. As of this morning I’m on Stage 2!

    NC is moving fast this year I’m already on Stage 3!

    #4433634 Reply

    Just checked for the first time since the pandemic. It now says that the refund check has changed.

    #4432814 Reply

    So yesterday went to stage 3 June 2nd. Filed on March 20th accepted the 23rd. The site was down all weekend but when I was able to check it Monday June 1st I was stage 2 and then Tuesday refund sent to bank. No money as of yet but I’m guessing it will happen tonight around 5 or tomorrow. Good luck all

    #4432534 Reply

    filed 109 days ago or 15 weeks and 4 days ago and still on stage 1. This is unacceptable.

    Last time I check I was on stage 2 on Jan 27 still waiting for stage 3 for refund check to be mail now it the end of March!

    #4397499 Reply

    I was told mine was being held for 90 days. What’s up with that?

    #4397347 Reply

    @charliemae I also got a letter from NCDOR the day right after my refund posts into my bank account requesting more information. It really got me questioning though about the timing of the mail. I also tried to search up the tax auditor name and did not find anyone with the same name on ncdor website. Thinking about calling them to make sure it’s authentic. Especially during this time when everything is slow.

    Stage 1 still as of today, 3/26.

    Then again the virus is probably slowing everything down but still…

    #4397199 Reply

    request for more information letter. really, in these times, really? my refund was so very small and so very needed, now in these uncertain times, i’m being asked for three years of information (didn’t even get a refund before), really? so very frustrating – in these times in particular.

    #4396566 Reply

    still in stage 1 on website, not processed on mobile website. letter coming today from NCDOR, not sure what it is – no dd and no movement. will update after mail is received.

    #4387877 Reply

    @ErinM — lol, I guess we will find out why once we get our notice in the mail. Got our DD today, it was reduced by about $167. I am racking my brain trying to think why but can come up with nothing. We have owed every year for the past few years and it seems NC still wants more lol. Oh well.

    Just woke up to the state tax money in my bank. Went to Stage 3 on Friday 28th. So it was 3 to 4 days in between going to Stage 3 and receiving the deposit into my bank.
    Best of luck to all of you.

    Stage 1 on Feb 18. Still no movement

    #4387557 Reply

    Jesse – We had the same thing. My husband apparently owed a college $50ish. We got our refund same day it updated to that message on the site.

    #4387549 Reply

    Stage 3 friday morning, just received deposit at 5pm

    #4387429 Reply

    Has anyone gotten the message that your refund amount has changed and they will mail a letter? We filed 2/1, accepted 2/6 and NCDOR (finally) updated over the weekend with that message. Our return was super simple – two incomes and we only have one child and the return math added up. What could possibly be wrong??

    #4387330 Reply

    Stage 3 – Refund issued on Friday 2-28.
    Still no deposit as of today, Monday 3-2.
    Anyone know the amount of days from Stage 3 until money actually deposited in bank.

    Morning, Leslie!
    My kids were ecstatic to go out since I have been unemployed. Stage 2 is coming soon! No worries. At least you have fed to carry you over! :)

    #4385066 Reply

    Hey @Erin :) Haha! Glad you enjoyed a steak dinner the other night! Thanks to us getting our fed, we went out to eat the other night as well. It was great going to a restaurant we normally can’t afford to go to. Lol. Anyhow, I’m still on stage 1 :( I thought I would’ve moved to stage 2 at this point, *sigh* Getting a bit annoyed, hopefully it won’t be much longer.
    Glad to read you’ll still be around on here Erin :)

    #4384879 Reply

    Brent- we filed around the same time and back SECU and got ours Wednesday for federal… I hate to hear yours hasn’t showed up…

    #4380977 Reply

    Welp. I’m done moving. They are sending out a letter of adjustment (no offsets). Just one thing after another with Turbo Tax this year. Guess I am done with them. Still waiting on TT’s bank to send out federal refund.

    As of today, still stuck on stage 1…

    Fed refund received today..
    I am wondering if I need to call…
    Last two years, our case was moved to bankruptcy department, due to filing bankruptcy 14 years prior. I had to speak to a case worker and both were very sweet, never understood why our case seemed to be pulled to their desks and did a quick review and sent it back out to cycle and pay..

    #4379795 Reply

    Thanks for the congrats @Erin, Erica & Sarah! I’m so happy it’s finally moving along. It seems to me once you’re at stage 1, movement to stage 2 doesn’t take too long. I hope you finally get to stage 2 soon Erin! And yes, Sarah, I agree :) It’s nice to know we aren’t alone in this for sure!
    Hope we all get our money real soon!!! *crosses fingers*
