Just want to know why is it taking a long time to receive my state income tax refund?
When will we get our refund for real? I filed for mines 2-18-09 and when I called for the 4th time I was told that mines had just been received 3-30-09 and they didn't know when I may received it.It now June and it has been 14 wks and 2 days.
What have the state done with my money they offset my refund sent the balance. Then the federal sent them the money over paying them. This was 2-2010 they have not sent my money back that the federal paid. Thats like stealing it was not theres to keep I should not have to wait on my money that was sent from the federal. What did they do with it. I want to press charges for thief of property.the state was paid before getting my federal payment. That is my money and to keep it is stealing.
I agree. The state can take $3500 of your money during the year but when it comes time to pay you back, they have no money. They can just pay me from the $3500 they took last year out of my check!
We have to pay penalty if we are 1 day late in paying alabama taxes I think they should have to pay a penalty to the taxpayer the longer they wait. Have you figured out they make interest on our refund money the longer they can hold on to it the more the state makes
Filed taxes in Feb 26. E-filed
We filed on Feb 12th and still no refund. They are saying the state is out of money to pay out the refunds and they are issuing as money comes in. Aggravating!!!
Maybe I will use same excuse to them next year "I didn't pay because I didn't have money"!
In Alabama refunds are paid from Educational Trust Fund. This budget is just now being worked on. Getting ready to go to the Gov for approval. Fiscal year starts in October. They have cut it drastically, getting rid of distance learning & class room supplies. Why our refunds are tied up in all this is beyond me. For me, I would like to get my car fixed soon.
Remember this everybody: In the future, in all years, always adjust your AL W-4 form downward, claiming every exemption and allowance possible. The goal here is to always owe the state, NOT the other way around. I would much rather have to pay them, even if a penalty is added, than to have to wait and worry over them refunding my overpayment for the better part of a year. Another technique is to examine your stock holdings as the year ends approach and maximize your capital gains in a tax year if you see that you have overpaid during the year. Again to make sure you owe them and not them owe you. Never again in this life will I allow the state of Alabama to "hold" my money hostage.
Our state tax return was return on 5/18/09. Why is taking so long to get it back?
I filed in Jan and still have not received mine
