Why haven’t I received my state refund

Only the state tax agency will know what all they are doing with your state return.  Some states are quick with refunds, while others (like GA, WV, etc.) take a long time--even weeks--as they crack down on fraudulent returns.

TIP:  While you are at the state tax website, see if they have a notice or FAQ on how long it usually takes to get a refund in your state and how long to wait before calling them.  Many have such a statement.
