Does federal have to be approved before state is approved? And is the state refund effected with eic?

Curious if anyone knows does federal need to be approved before state can be approved? Also if I'm claiming the eic I know federal will hold u til the 15th but can it be approved before then

No, states can approve a filed return before the Federal is approved by the IRS.

Yes, the delay of refunds due to the Earned Income Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit only applies to the release of the refund.  The returns should still be processed as normal.

Note: E-filed state returns will not be accepted until your Federal return is accepted.  This is the first step to e-filing, approval is after the return is processed by the government(s).
