Why is my refund taking so long?

I filed on 2/9/12, a family member of mine filed 2/11/12. She already got back her federal and state. I have no off sets or anything and I still have not gotten mine at all. She got a delivery date of 2/21/12 and I got a delivery date of 2/28/2012. But her's came in on 2/14/12 for state and 2/17 for fed. Whats going on and why is this happening. I have never had this problem before.  I am really frustrated at this process. I checked others who used taxact and took their taxes to someone who done them for them and they got theirs back. Why is mine taking so long?
  • I'm having the same problem. I filed 2/7 and still no refund. I checked on where's my refund and it said the delivery date was today but nothing still.
  • The IRS is stupid. were are to trust these stupid people? they can take the money from us right away but when it come to the public we have to wait. (I vehemently dislike) the IRS you can (place) that money up (in a trust fund or something like that)! B.I.S.E.C. life our way.

  • Up date- Refund came in today finally 2/23/2012 from federal. Nothing from state. I hope this don't happen next year. I also hope TT has the calculations right also. Last year IRS sent another refund because TT was wrong on the calculations. We will see!
  • I filed on 2/2/2012 and I still do not have my refund! It should take 10-21 days and today is day 21. The IRS is telling me by March 6! So frustrated and ticked off!!! I did everything electrocially so I could get my return fast because I really need it! Of course I also cannot get anyone on the phone to ask any questions!

  • I filed first day....STILL no refund....UGH

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
