Has anyone noticed their tax return taking longer than normal? I e-filed back on 3/8, accepted on 3/9 and it is still showing as being processed as of today on the Where's My Refund IRS site, not even showing as approved much less sent. Last year we had it in about 7 days. And this year is less complicated than last year. I used Turbo Tax, but read that they had fixed the security problem before I even started mine.

Just wondering if anyone else is seeing a longer than normal delay in refunds. We are moving in 2 weeks and I really wanted to close out my checking account before we left, but can't do that before getting the refund.

I owe federal taxes this year, so that gets mailed on the 15th, but I filed my state taxes (with a significant refund) about 6 weeks ago, and still have not received my check. It's normally a 4 week process when filed this early.

My federal refund took about a week.

My NJ state refund took a month or so.

We filed ours about 4 weeks ago (in MI) and got our federal refund within 7 days. It was several days after I had expected our state refund to be deposited into our account (the email said the average turn around time was 21 days) when we received a letter from the state saying we were randomly picked to verify the accuracy of our return and a two sided form was enclosed that we have to fill out (same stuff as on the original return) with a request for documentation (more than originally needed to file) as well. The letter said we would either receive our refund (if they determined everything to be accurate) or a follow-up letter within 12 weeks (if they determine our return to be not accurate) from the day they received the requested form and documentation back. This has never happened to us before as we usually receive our refunds about a week or two apart from each other.

If you have a home heating credit in Michigan.........make sure your heating provider has the right dates.

I have a friend still waiting from last year for her credit.

Actually we just got our SC refund last week. Last year it was about the same amount of time for the state.

Now I'm really concerned. I only hope that there wasn't a problem with the Turbo Tax. I don't want to have to hassle with it all. We have to go out of town for a couple of days the first of the week but if don't get it by the time we get home I guess I'm going to have to call.

I used a software program other than Turbo Tax and I received both my state and federal refund within 14 days of filing. This was during the month of March. Could Turbo Tax returns be delayed while those associated with other programs are not delayed?

Ours finally came through yesterday and posted today. It was their stated maximum 21 days on Monday. We had been away and I was getting ready to call them, but it was there this morning, thank goodness.

Hope everyone gets theirs soon!
