I see this message online....

"Your return has been processed. A direct deposit of your refund is scheduled to be issued on (APRIL 14, 2010). If your refund is not credited to your account within 15 days of this date, check with your bank to find out if it has been received."

Is everyone else who is getting a direct deposit seeing this ?

I did direct deposit, e-filed ~2 weeks ago. I'm getting this message:

We received your return and it's in the final stage of processing. While most returns are completed within 2 weeks, it may take up to 4 weeks.

My federal return should be deposited on Friday according to the IRS.

I got a nice amount of $$$ this year, I don't mind waiting!

Hey you are on the right track as far as state is concerned.... I had that message before it changed to the one I posted today....

Note: I paper filed my returns, so the Federal status shows me nothing, the delivery confirmation shows it was delivered.... I can also wait as long as they can tell me they received it and are processing it, right now its up in the air.

Default I don't think that's true.

I''m required to pay my taxes. That can be done preemptively, quarterly, or monthly. If I do it the first two ways, it makes little sense that I'd be under a legal obligation to have my monthly check garnished by a fixed amount.

Where did you get this fact?

The confusion here is in knowing the difference between how many exemptions you file with the IRS and what your witholding allowence is that you tell your employer. Most people do not understand the difference between the two and believe that they are one in the same. You cannot legally claim more exemptions on your return than you are allowed to this is true but you can adjust your witholding to whatever you want during the year.

I can claim whatever I want with my employer all year long as long as when I file my return my exemptions reflect my true filing status. Most people wont or cant except this for whatever reasons. these are the same people that believe they did good by getting a huge return every year when in reality they gave the government a big interest free loan.

I was shocked when I recieved my state return after only a few weeks.
Last year I think it took 2 months.

Its good to revisit it every year after you file and make any adjustments. Having a House on Long Island is worth 3-4 deductions alone between the mortgage and property taxes. Ive had so many changes myself that I didnt even come close and ended up getting way too much back I wish they would teach this stuff in schools as well as interest rates, what APR means ect. So many people are financially ignorant its unreal. A little knowledge can save you thousands of dollars every year.
