NYS Tax Return Under Further Review?
Asked by: bellmont
I e-filed my 2012 federal and state returns on January 31, 2013. The federal was accepted on February 1, the state (NYS) was accepted on February 4. The federal refund has already been deposited into my account on February 8, but the state has been displaying the following message since the day it was accepted:
“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.”
My tax return hasn’t changed from the previous few years. In fact, I’m actually getting a smaller refund this year ($ 420) than last year. From what I’ve seen elsewhere on the internet, a lot of NYS filers are getting the same message, but I’m a bit concerned with the fact that it’s been 8 days since acceptance. Has anyone else from NYS who received this message seen it change to anything else? If yes, how long did it take?
Thank you for the info! Would you mind sharing how long it took the “further review” message to change to “processing”?
@welcome to my world:
It certainly seems like a lot of NYS residents are getting the “further review” message. Some people are speculating that it’s a delay tactic to avoid having to pay out refunds quickly.
