Any idea why my refund from State of NC is taking so long?

The North Carolina DOR "Where's My Refund" website says that due to enhanced identity theft protection measures, some North Carolina refunds may take longer than normal, which is 6-8 weeks for electronically-filed returns and 12 weeks for paper returns

First, make sure your NC return was successfully filed.

If you efiled, double-check with this tool to be sure the state return was efiled successfully and accepted:   

Also check the return status by logging back into your online account to see what is displayed there.

If you filed by mail, did you print, sign, and mail it?  TurboTax does not mail it for you.

The following FAQ tells how to track a state refund.   There may also be a FAQ or notice on your state tax agency's website with into on about how long it takes to get a refund, and how long to wait before phoning them.
