My Federal and Louisiana state returns were filed through turbo tax at the same time. Why when trying to track my state refund, I'm being told I have no refund for the tax period of 2013? It was accepted by the state on Feb, 3, 2014
Ok, so almost identical story. My preparer filed my return on 1/31 and it was accepted by LDR on 2/3. For two weeks the WMR tool said that "no return was submitted for the taxable period." Then, this past Saturday, that note changed to, "...no refund due for the taxable period." Of course, like you, I freaked out. Called LDR yesterday to figure out what was going on. In short, the answer I got was this: the WMR tool is not accurately updating and the LDR confirmed that my refund was "there and going out" within 21 days of acceptance. That should put my refund dispersement somewhere between now and Monday....God willing. Moral of the story is that you shouldn't worry about whatever the WMR tool is saying....I had the exact same message and I confirmed that it is inaccurate and that "everything is fine."

The LA site for where's my refund states that information on electronic returns should be available after 21 days. If your state return was accepted by the state on 02/03/2014 then it is possible there will be no information until after 02/24/2014. I am including a link to the state site to check on your refund.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
