I'm snail mail too.  And guess what?  WE FORGOT TO SIGN THEM. *beats head on wall*

 

So I mailed them Feb. 5, they were returned to us and mailed back out on March 5.  I'm sure it'll take until April 5 now for them to acknowledge their existence and June to get a check.

HATE that moment!  But hopefully this means good news for you:  ours said April 24 online, and it hit our bank account yesterday, over a month "early!"  Good luck!

I finally checked on ours and it said 3/27.  I am not hopeful not that though because of our situation.  It would be really nice though if that actually happened...

So, it's delayed again for this year. eyesroll.gif Unfortunately, the agency needs time to update and test its systems. So,people might just use some cover ups while waiting for it as it'll be for over three weeks before it's processed and then there is a waiting time period after that to get the cash. It appears that a [Admin note: Link removed as promotional posting of commerical sites is not permitted.] loan would greatly help those that desperately need their refund income and are facing unknown delays. Ppft.

Mine was accepted on the 31st and I'm expecting a wait on the refund since I filed an injured spouse claim, but the money will go toward savings and necessities, I can't wait!!! But I have to, lol.

When I filed state and federal, I was told the federal would be delayed and no refunds will be sent out before the 27th. They haven't accepted my federal return yet because the forms aren't ready, and the state won't accept them until the federal does. Sigh. We so need the money NOW. Dh was out of work for 1/2 of last year. He finally started working again, but I don't get paid until the 20th (getting paid once a month really sucks) and he won't get a regular check until the 22nd. We have such a huge hole to dig out of, but between the refund and him working now, at least we will have a shovel.

I filed mine yesterday. They say they have received it, but it hasn't been accepted yet. Hopefully soon.

 

We'll be using our refund to pay up some bills, get some clothes line posts, fill our pantry, put some away for savings/emergency, put some towards saving for a new car, get new camping gear, and I always allow the kids a little to use for some stuff they want. I'm going to try and convince them to get a swing set this year, since they always want to go to the park, but they only ever want to swing.

I just e-filed.  Had to pay in $182 for state & We are getting back $2475 federal.  Last year it took exactly one week to get our refund!

Just got an email that our State refund was rejected.  I followed the steps & it said that I have to print & mail my state return.  It didn't tell my why , but said that I I can't e-file.  Too bad that my printer isn't hooked up.

The education credit held up our federal refund *sigh*. We filed Jan. 25th, and the IRS won't process our return until Thursday. We don't have state taxes here, so didn't have to deal with that. We're expecting close to $10k, and with a new baby in April, birthday parties, rent, bills, and debt.. I really am looking forward to that moolah!

I filed on Sunday, got the email confirmation that it was accepted Monday, and the website is saying my federal refund should be received before March 2nd. 

I go the state confirmation, but didn't see when that should be expected.

Our Federal refund is scheduled to be deposited to our account tomorrow!!!  I got the state return to go through with e-file. They already deducted what we owed from our checking account!  That didn't take long!

One of the perks of living in Alaska haha! In exchange of no tax, we have a high COL.

My federal says I will have my refund by Thursday; my state is still being processed. We have had numerous fraud violations of people filing for convicts and getting back thousands (one was a police officer at my school and his CPA wife! $175K they defrauded from the government). Anyway, the state is rolling out new identity software to prevent this type of thing from happning, so I imagine this is holding up a few returns.

 

We have always had to claim our federal or state refund as income the following year. We also get to deduct any taxes paid.

 

My state is looking at doing away with state income tax! I really hope we do.

Delayed refunds are indeed and totally frustrating. Most especially when you're expecting it to use for some stuffs or pay for some debts. It's annoying when you can't have them on the time they should be on your hands. [Admin note: Link removed as promotional posting of commerical sites is not allowed.] Payday loans helps, though. They help cover up with these annoying moments and save you temporarily. Anyway, you can always repay right away once you get your refund. :)

Where's My Refund said my federal would be deposited today, but it went in last night. I filed last Sunday (the 10th), I think. And it was accepted the next day. Still waiting for state, I haven't looked to see when to expect it.
