State tax returns are not transmitted to the state until after the Federal return has been accepted.  In addition, state e-files take longer than federal to be processed.  State returns are transmitted to the IRS, and then the IRS forwards the return on to the state.  The bottleneck may be with the  IRS.  As long as your return is not "rejected" there is nothing to be concerned about at this point.  You are not the only one experiencing a delay with state returns, and it's not just California.

Thank you for the answer. It's a bit reassuring to know it's happened to someone else; however, how much longer should I wait until the possible bottleneck on the Federal side is "nothing to be concerned about at this point"??

I filed both Federal and California returns on February 10th and Federal accepted my return on February 11th. For as many years as I've efiled, the Federal and State returns are almost always filed & ACCEPTED  simultaneously & immediately. This situation concerns me, as I would like to be reassured that the resolution is being addressed, and by whom.  Federal, California or TurboTax?

 

Thank you for your response to the second part of the question.

I filed in both California and Oregon. Oregon quickly accepted on second submittal after a TurboTax software update. California has not accepted. This is slower than I’ve ever seen on California acceptance in recent years, but I am filing earlier than usual.

We also submitted Federal and California on 02/13/2021.  Federal was accepted almost immediately.  But CA is still pending - 5 days and counting.  I also ask, how long should we wait on this before starting an alternate process (resubmit or send in via mail or ....)

CA just rejected based on Turbotax SW errors. TurboTax went through a big update when i got back on. Rejection provided instructions for some minor reviews in deductions. E-file now re-completed. Maybe this time.
