Anyone else have a NY State return that is under further review? What is New York doing?
We received your return and it required further review which could take up to 60 days to complete. If you receive correspondence from us, you should respond as soon as possible.
what does this mean, i am freaking out
Same here. I just got off the phobe with them for me I'm In audit because I itemized my deductions ie: medical, job expenses. So they said letter will go out end of month and to fax or mail in what the ask. Fun fun
There's such a volume of discussion here that I was unable to read it all, but I did come across the mini-thread suggesting that the problem is related to the size of the refund, with those less than $500 not being affected. Bzzzzt! Wrong. My refund is $119, so there goes that theory.
I am a pessimist but I do not buy the arguments that the state of NY is broke and so is more careful and so much more delay( read 4 not 2 weeks). The USA is broker than NY state and the fiscal cliff proved it. The delay of 30 days to January 30 was what both federal and state needed to balance part of the budget needed to start refunds. What NY is doing, though, is auditing more. There is also much more identity theft than last year.
Audited for itemized deductions!
Every year its the same thing. Are you kidding me???? I hate this state more and more everyday!
When will I receive my refund?
The processing time for an income tax refund is, in general, four to six weeks, but you can expect to receive your refund sooner if you file electronically. It's even faster when you have your refund deposited directly into your savings or checking account. Check the status of your refund on-line or by phone.
