How long does it typically take for the state to accept your return?

Your state return cannot be accepted until your federal return has been accepted. 

The IRS will not begin to accept/reject federal returns until January 28.  Until then, e-filed returns will just be sitting on a server, waiting.  You will receive an email after that date letting you know if your return was accepted or rejected.  It will probably take several days after January 28 for them to work through the backlog of returns on the server.
