Tax refunds are on their way according the NC Secretary of Revenue

Still looking for your North Carolina tax refund? Well it looks like it is on the way. At least that is what North Carolina Secretary of Revenue has told WWAY in a phone interview Thursday. He said they are running behind a couple of weeks and that, “anyone who is due a refund will get a refund.” The economy has caused the department to run behind schedule this year. Secretary Kenneth Lay said the department will catch up soon.

This will be the last year

This will be the last year they can expect me to pay TurboTax $19.95 to efile. What's the point?

more than couple weeks late

Our refund, according to the web site was due to be paid March 5 (e-file was accepted by the state Feb. 5). I started calling March 12. They told me then that it was still being processed, they were running 2 weeks behind and to give it one more week. I called back on March 19, and the first person who answered the call couldn't tell me anything and forwarded me to a "level two tech" that person said it was pending but gave no reason why, said they would "investigate and call back." I never did hear back so I called March 24 and the first person couldn't say what was going on and forwarded me to someone else who then told me it was till being processed and should be deposited in 1-1/2 to 2 weeks. I explained what I was told on March 19, and she said that that wasn't true and it was still being processed, that they were running "a couple weeks behind." IF it shows up in 2 weeks, it will be 5 weeks late, taking 9 weeks instead of the 4 weeks given on their web site.

Did you get your NC tax refund yet?

I am still waiting and calling does
no good as the agent as no information
or is not informed.


Then you will be due

Then you will be due interest on your refund from the state!

Good luck getting the state to pay interest

My refund of $2000 is also weeks over-due. These refunds are our money being held interest free and now they refuse to give it back. I have adjusted my withholding and vow to never be due a refund again. If I owed the same amount to the state and sent in excuses instead of cash, I'm sure they would be OK with that, right?

Instead of a refund...

which is nothing more than an interest-free loan to the state...why not adjust your witholding on your paycheck.
