    Did anyone on here file with Turbo Tax? I've been reading stuff online about Metabank emailing them saying their refund was deposited, but nothing being in their banks...I filed on the 2nd and haven't gotten anything yet, I usually get my refund a week after filing. How long did it take to get yours?

    The charge your referring to is one that a customer receives when the opt to have their state tax filling fee deducted from their return.
    If you file in one of the many states that don't offer free e-filing like California.
    You have the option to pay turbotax with your credit card or have metabank deduct it from your refund.

    Except that chart isn't always right. I submitted my e-file through TuboTax on January 18th and didn't get the direct deposit until February 5th. The Where's My Refund site is really great; it will give you an estimate and then actually tell you when it is scheduled to be sent or deposited.

    I've seen the chart, I was just curious if anyone got theirs earlier than shown on the chart.

    Yeah it said the 16th, then the 12th, then the 16th again.:/

    I haven't used Turbo Tax for several years, I use Complete Tax. They too have the list of when monies are sent to your account. Mine was supposed to be deposited on the 5th, both Fed and State deposited into my account on the 3rd.

    The IRS has very few "hard rules." There is an exception for pretty much every thing; even exceptions seem to have exceptions.

    I used TurboTax Deluxe last Friday. I received my MA state return today through direct deposit. My federal return says "by February 23" on the "Where's My Refund?" site.

    I e-filed with H&R Block's software and got my refund from the IRS direct deposited in a week.

    I paper filed and opted to receive a check for my state refund (I wasn't paying 20 bucks to efile) and mailed it the day after I e-filed my fed refund and received the refund check on the same day I got my refund from the IRS. Either the IRS is extremely slow or Missouri's DOR is extremely fast.
