That's fine. My state return has been pending since 2/13. I haven't received any email. How do I know if i'm included in this and when can i expect some resolution? Is the 48 hours you mentioned from today or when I filled. Thanks.
I'm going to assume it is 48 hours from the date/time she posted this. I e-filed on 2/1/21, fed accepted 2/11/21, CA state still pending since then 7 days later. I have my fed refund already in my bank account, hopefully this gets sorted out asap as I really need that state refund. =(
It is the "pits" . I spoke to a help person who said they were unaware of this problem. My taxes are about as uncomplicated as they come so don't understand why there would be an issue with them. It'd be nice to hear back from someone
@GabiU - I got an email relating to my return being rejected, but when I logged in to fix it, there's no way to do that, it still just says pending. Phone support was not able to assist and I'm not even sure if the email was correct - it was certainly a legitimate email from TurboTax, but I'm not offered anyway to fix the issue.
Is this also a known issue or am I just the lucky one who has this to deal with?
This message is very confusing, I talked to a TurboTax Rep at 03:36pm EST and explained that my local State Agency which is GA stated that it's a transmission issue with TurboTax they do not show any evidence of a tax return being filed. The Rep. with Turbo Tax stated that it's a issue of my State not receiving my tax return on there end basically they are not processing gave an example of them being behind. This is becoming very frustrating and from different chat lines pertaining to Tax Returns the people that are having issues are customers that used TurboTax software, it seems that people that didn't use TurboTax are getting accepted or rejected within hours of submitting a tax return, it seems that TurboTax and State Department of Revenue are not on the same page and this seems like the Reps within Turbo Tax are not on the same page.
Let me interpret
"We noticed that we screwed up the efile process and so we need to figure out how to fix it. So to buy time we will tell you that we are going to help you fix the problem with your tax forms, because we are just helpful that way."
Okay, so I filed both Federal and CA State on 2/16/21. Federal said it was Accepted within hours. State was pending for two days. I just got an email today (2/18/21) from TurboTax saying my state returns were rejected due to a software bug on TT's side.
I logged back into my TT software, were it did a large CA state software update and installed the update. I didn't see any kind of details (like it stated in the TT rejected email below,) so I assumed that the CA state software update fixed whatever the problem was. TT said there wasn't any type of problem in Fed or State Review, so I E-filed the state returns again without fixing anything on my end.
Back to "Pending," status, and we'll see if they are accepted by California tax authorities by Saturday. Waiting once again. Sigh.
See the email I got today:
