    Files 2/8. Status FINALLY updated to Stage 1 as of 3/15! I feel much more optimistic with seeing SOME movement here at least. Just hoping it doesn’t take another 15 days before Stage 2. C’mon, need my refund before Easter weekend. Crossing fingers :)

    I am in the same boat. I updated to stage 1 on 3/2 and have been stuck on there ever since. I hope it is just 15 days.

    Tax status is in Stage 1 as of 3/2

    #4240204 Reply


    NC accepted 2/1
    Stage : 3/2 – no movement since then. Msg says it may take up to 15 days to move to the next stage.

    Is this supposed to be 15 business day or 15 calendar days??? Anyone know when the updated their systems??

    @Kevin: It had happened to me once but after I entered SS# and refund amount, it showed the correct status. It could be system glitch or operator’s error :-)

    Filed 2/8 electonically through H&R Block. NC refund still not received/processed. The least that NCDOR can do is verify that my refund was received, even if it takes 8 weeks to process. And let’s be honest, there is NO FREAKING WAY it takes 8 weeks to process anything in 2018. C’mon man.

    I am guessing there is an unstated system at play here. As my pending refund is rather substantial, I am going to speculate that it is systemically shuffled to the bottom :)

    I have been at stage 1 since 3/2. This is ridiculous. A lot of people process in 3 days or less. I am on day 11 and still no movement.

    Went to stage 1 this morning

    How long does stage 1 take?

    #4239217 Reply


    Filed 2/2, entered stage 1 3/7, and no movement since. Just wanted to drop in and give an update.

    #4239214 Reply


    e-filed and accepted on 2/5. Finally hit stage 1 over the weekend. Not sure if it was Fri.(9th) or Sat.(10th) So finally there is movement!!

    #4239164 Reply


    Hooray, it progressed to stage 2 around 1am today, 3/13!

    As a reference, e-filed and accepted 2/4, stage 1 on 3/9.

    It looks like when the stage 1 message changes from “up to 15 days to process” to “call if it has been 60 days” may be hint that it’s about to progress to stage 2.

    Mine went from stage 1-Tuesday-stage 2- Friday,now waiting on stage 3-It may have been on a limited schedule today,due to snow

    #4239024 Reply


    e-filed and accepted 2/4, had my federal refund a while ago. It went to stage 1 3/9 saying it may take up to 15 days to process.

    This morning, while still in stage 1, the message changed to the following: “Your return is in Stage 1. If it has been more than 60 days since you filed your return, please call 1-877-252-3052. To reach an agent, DO NOT select 1 for refunds. Instead, select 5 for all other inquiries, then select 1 for individual income tax.”

    So, I called NC DOR and a rep told me that it might be on its way to being approved in stage 2. She saw no calculation errors.

    Has anyone seen their message changed while in stage 1?

    #4238723 Reply


    Filed 2/5 and accepted same day. As of this morning, it’s in stage 1. Hoping it doesn’t take the full 15 days to go to stage 2.

    hi can anyone please tell me when my NC refund will deposited in my bank.

    It was accepted on 02/01/2018 and on friday 03/09/2018 it now says my refund has been issued to my bank and will get to me in bout 10 days ? I filled using my fiancee account and an estimated date would be very appreciated

    #4238575 Reply


    Filed 2/6 and my tax refund has not been processed yet. Has anyone filed on 2/6 and seen any movement on the processing of their return?

    #4238122 Reply


    It didn’t used to be this way,I remember three years ago getting both federal,and state in less than ten days,then they said they were putting stricter rules (??)
    In place ,last year we filed 1-31,got federal feb 8,state March 7,so its most definitely weird now

    #4238087 Reply


    I think the language is pretty tricky and it may work in favor of the state. As the state clearly says it can take up to 8-12 weeks to process returns which is clearly beyond 45 days (6 weeks and 3 days), they could be counting effectively from the due date of 4/17.

    Fundamentally, the fact that NC requires 8-12 weeks to complete processing out this state as almost the longest. Question is why in the first place? One should organize a class action lawsuit/complaint against the state in order to get them to move faster in the future.

    I have just been so disappointed with this state. I now miss Illinois’ efficiency in handling refunds. Also, the NC DOR is gouging us on high taxation on automobiles.There is no such thing as automobile property tax in Illinois. Here I pay upwards of upper $300s for each of my 3 vehicles. Highway robbery, indeed!

    #4237941 Reply


    Just a quick point on the 45 day interest rule, they pay interest “45 days from the date the original return was filed or the date the original return was due, whichever is later.” The due date for tax returns this year is April 17, 2018.

    So if you filed before March 3rd, they are not required to pay interest until after the 17th of April. If you file after March 3rd, then it’s 45 days from the day you file. Just wanted to clear that up before anyone gets their hopes up!

    It finally progresses to stage 1 after midnight! e-filed and accepted 2/4.

    @Holly: I had my federal refund deposited earlier as well. Let’s keep each other informed once it progresses to stage 1. Thanks and hang in there :-)

    #4237611 Reply


    I also filed and was excepted on 2/4 and mine is still not processing. I received my federal taxes weeks ago.

    #4237510 Reply


    @bonnie: Thank you for the information about the state issuing interest after 45 days.

    Folks – State website says so here:

    Granted 45 days a little bit over 6 weeks is still a long time, but it’s good to know there is a safeguard that we won’t be strung along indefinitely. It just pains me to think that Fed and most other states can issue refund much sooner than NC state. Wish there were collective complaints to force the state to change the inefficient and seemingly deliberately slow system.

    e-filed and accepted 2/4. Still not processed. Any 2/4 filers out there seeing the same thing?

    Don’t forget any refunds not received over 45 days, state is required to pay interest.

    It’s so amazing how when you owe the State of NC they want their money then and will take it out your bank account but when they owe you these suckers take forever. I filed on 1/28/18. My refund was accepted on 1/30/18. I have yet to receive my NC refund as of 3/6/18. I checked the status this morning and my refund was approved and I needed to wait an additional three weeks before receiving my refund. I received my federal taxes two weeks after filing. There is a special place in hell for these people.
