Good Question: Where's My Alabama Tax Refund?
WHNT Eyeball News 19 ^ | May 4, 2010 | Staff

MONTGOMERY, AL - Have you gotten your state refund tax check yet? Many Alabamians haven't yet, and they're growing more impatient by the day.

Barbara Moore of Athens wrote WHNT NEWS 19 to ask us to find out when the state will send refund checks to people who are waiting on refunds.

"Some of us feel like we're being forgotten by the state," said Moore. "Can you get us a general idea when to expect what is due to us?"

WHNT NEWS 19 is taking action to get the answer. We contacted the Alabama Department of Revenue, and workers say refunds will continue to be processed for the next month or two, and that so far, the state has mailed out nearly 590,000 refund checks totaling more than $238 million.

The state expects to approve well over one million refunds this year.

I don't even live in Alabama (some household goods were picked up there), but my company inadvertently sent them over $521. I sent in a AL NR40 (non-resident tax form) with a letter explaining the circumstances back in early April.

I just check the AL DOR website  Where's my Refund?   site and it says:

Your return has been received, and it is being processed. The processing time varies for each return. You should receive your refund check 8 to 12 weeks from today.

What the heck is that all about?

I got my Alabama refund February 21st 2010.

Filing early is the key!

Congratulations. You gave the state of Alabama an interest-free loan.

CA did this last year. It is a dumb move because taxpayers will take steps to withhold less next year and not get caught again.

Move to Tennessee they don’t have any state income tax, just a high sales tax.

I filed my North Carolina return with a $724 expected refund at the end of February. It took them THREE MONTHS to even change the status from “not received” to “processing.” Now it’s been almost another month and it’s still “processing.”

They’re sitting on the money to pay for everything else in government. Basically, we’re last in line to get OUR money back from “OUR” government. And yet we keep putting the same people back in charge, election after election.

Texas hasn’t sent me my state income tax refund check either. :-(

That’s one downside of living in a state without a state income tax, but I can live with it.

Feel lucky that you are not getting an IOU like the taxpayers of California are getting for last year and how many more years to come?

last year here in MA I got a tax refund from the state, this year they sent me a notice to remind me to pay taxes on the amount of money that they refunded me last year, so in plain english I have to pay taxes this year on the money I was OVERTAXED last year!

Huh...I filed both in early April. My fed return was electronic and I got my refund in 10 calendar days. My Cali refund took three weeks.

Maybe Alabama is waiting for an Obama bailout. Word on the street is that he has a mighty big stash that he’s sharing with just about every who has their hand out: banks, auto companies, unions, state governments etc.

"...continue to be processed for the next month or two"

August???? SEPTEMBER??? If I were five months late sending in my taxes, they'd start garnishment proceeding! Maybe that's the answer -- put a lein on the Capitol building or something.

What do you consider as a high sales tax in Tennessee? In Texas, the state is 5.25% (somewhere around there), but locals as 3%. Groceries and pharmaceuticals are not taxed.

I got my refund within 3 weeks of filing back in Feb. My accountant did the filing for both. I had the federal within a week.

“Filing early is the key!”

I agree, I filed in March, and had my refund before the end of April...... Same for Federal.
