Why can't I file my state taxes on here yet when everyone I know is already filing their state taxes...

I don't know why it takes longer for Credit Karma returns to be accepted by states. I ran into this last year too. This year it took 9 days for my state return to be accepted, which, for me, is an acceptable amount of time to trade for no fees. Last year it took longer for it to be accepted also, but I got my refund in about the same amount of time compared to Turbo Tax. Federal is accepted, and refunded, quickly. It would be nice if Credit Karma would address this issue and at least give an explanation!

Update: My state return was accepted today. So Federal took 8 days from filing to refund, and state took 9 days to be accepted.

I filed on February 4th. I received my federal return today. My state return has not been accepted. This happened last year too, so I'm not panicing...yet!

Why is CK unable to process most state tax returns at this time?

Feb 12, 2018

I went though this last year, and was very unimpressed with the customer service responses. I wound up calling my state tax line and they could not find my return. I thought about re-filing, but then found you can't file just a state return with most tax softare. In the end I decided to let it ride and see what happens, figuring I had some time before it was due. It finally filed after about 12 days and I got my refund about 2 days later. I debated using Credit Karma this year, but went with Credit Karma again as I hated how much I was going to be charged with anyone else. I filed on 2/4. I got my federal return today, but my state return has not yet been accepted. Seems a repeat of last year. Not going to worry about it for a bit...

How long after I file before IRS accepts return?

Jan 29, 2018

I filed with CK last year and found it took longer with CK than in the past with Turbo Tax, but it worked out fine in the end (with total time to get my refund about the same). I have not filed yet, but this is from irs.gov:

The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on Jan. 29, with nearly 155 million individual tax returns expected to be filed in 2018. The nation’s tax deadline will be April 17 this year – so taxpayers will have two additional days to file beyond April 15. 

Many software companies and tax professionals will be accepting tax returns before Jan. 29 and then will submit the returns when IRS systems open. Although the IRS will begin accepting both electronic and paper tax returns Jan. 29, paper returns will begin processing later in mid-February as system updates continue.

How do use Credit Karma to file taxes WITHOUT the 1099-INT forms?

Jan 28, 2018

I have 2 accounts that don't meet the threshold, but still filed with CK last year and this year. You may need to call your bank to get their Federal Tax ID number, but it's pretty simple. Most accounts will have a link to see interest paid/earned for 2017 which you can add to your 1040 (without the 1099-INT) along with your bank's ID number.

how do get a copy of my 2016 tax return

Jan 21, 2018

Chat idled out due to wait times, cannot find a link to print 2016 returns in the FAQ's and the google directions are old. If anyone finds the answer to viewing/printing 2016 returns, please post it!

state tax return not filed

Return Finally Accepted

I filed Federal and MN on 1/27. Federal went through right away, MN seemed stuck. Called the state, no record of my return, was told the problem was on CK's end. Emailed several times, got a bunch of auto-reply responses, often asking for more info, which led me back to CK's support page. If I didn't respond with "more information", I got an automated reply that my issue was resolved. Frustrating and unacceptable "support". Finally, seemingly at ramdom, my state return was accepted yesterday (10 days after filing).

The biggest frustration has been the lack of support. During this time I had a log in issue. Sent an email as I was locked out of my account. I heard back in a couple of hours and was able to log in again. I asked about the filing issue, and was sent a list of every state's "where's my refund" link. When I replied that my return was not accepted, they quit replying. I emailed back to the same person 3 more times...zero response.
