In six weeks the Dept. had not done anything with my return; I e-filed wayyy before Kenneth Lay announced that the Dept was having money issues. I filed on 1/15th, the claim was made against my refund on 2/24th. On the exact day that the claim was made against my refund, I called the company and was able to clear the mistake up. Within hours of doing that, the NC Dept of Revenue had dropped the claim and my refund was no longer in jeopardy. We are talking about a problem that occured and was resolved within 3-4 hours. So, why the heck did the Dept push my return to the bottom of the heap so quickly? Answer: To delay the disbursement of a refund. Any opportunity that they get to delay a refund, they will take it.

Did anyone catch the story on Fox this morning that NC was one of the states that was putting refunds on hold for an extended portion of time? What a joke!

Default Outrageous...

I did not catch the Fox News update on the situation. However, I e-filed my return on February 5th, and still haven't seen anything yet. At first, when I checked the status of my refund online it stated that my refund had been processed. Then a few days later, it stated what everyone else is seeing (your refund is being processed). I have also called and the agent merely told me that my refund was still being processed. When I asked why the refund was taking so long they stated it had to go through their internal process. This was the limit of their response. This is absolutely rediculous.

I bet if we assembled a petition in protest with thousands of registered voters signing something would get done. I'd be certain to stipulate on it that we demand resignation of the Governor if action is not taken immediately to release all owed funds (w/interest paid from the date the refund was accepted).

I efiled feb.8 and was accepted feb 10. I am getting the same ole message as everyone else, but from what I can see from reading these forums is that when it's time for us to finally get our refunds our status will change on a Tuesday with our deposits coming on Wednesdays. I'm gonna give up checking for a week cause it's just ticking me off and try checking it next Tuesday.

It has officially been 6 weeks since my return was accepted. Still no refund. I don't even know why I continue to check, it just stresses me out.

It is you who does not seem to understand how budgets/budgeting works. As is always the case, the rules that are used to control and punish the people of this state - at the hands of the NCGA, not to mention the IRS - are not applied to them. Here is how buidgeting works: 1.) You do not plan for capital expenditures or spend money you do not have. 2.) You do not take money that belongs to other people and spend it without the permission of the poeople it belongs to, such as our legally mandated tax-free loan to the state of North Carolina and the federal government being hekld past the point of the tax refund filing. That is called stealing when you take and/or keep someone else's money or propertry and then use it for your own gain or profit. 3.) You do not continue - year after year - to fail to balance your budget or come up with a plan that will, and expect to not be homeless and hungry.

Before you decide to belittle someone else who is having a tough financial time, maybe you should consider that you are also likely to have trouble financially. Also, please do not post if you are NC Revenue employee!

Default Waiting on your NC Income Tax returns?

Is anyone waiting a long time for theirs too?
I filed in late January for MI, Federal and NC at the same time via e-file.
I got my MI one and Federal within 2 weeks, but here it is almost 2 months later and I still didn't get my return.

I heard on the AM station yesterday NC is deliberately holding up the funds (72 million?) so they can balance the state budget. If MI can do it with the poor financial state they are in, why can't NC?????

Anyone have any insight?

That's why you need to under pay your state taxes a little so you won't have your money held hostage by the state.

Thankfully we owe the state, rather than the other way around!
