Why is my state e-file still pending?

SOLVEDby TurboTax90778Updated 3 weeks ago

Even if you filed your federal and state returns at the same time, your state may not start processing it at the same time as the IRS.

It's not unusual for state returns to remain in pending status several days after a federal return has been accepted. This is especially common when e-filing first opens in early February.

Sit tight and your state return will (eventually) move along in the queue.
