  1. I authorized Turbo tax to take the $120 out of my refund but it appears they took close to $300? Why would that be? i’ve tried calling but they play games on the phone and dont transfer you to a live agent. Please advise

  2. You only paid for your Federal return the first time, the State fees were the cost to purchase the Turbo Tax software, even if done online. The second time you had to pay for Turbo Tax to submit your state return electronically, which the program doesnt charge you for on your Federal return. If you filed the State return by mailing it in it would have not cost anything when you actually filed it (2nd time). As for not receiving the State return by 3 weeks, every state is different and Turbo Tax on proclaims that you will receive your Federal return within 2-3 weeks in 9 out of 10 cases. Anyway, I hope I helped clarify things a little and also hope you have received your state return by now as its been almost 3 more weeks since you asked this question. Good luck and enjoy your day and many happy returns!

  3. I paid out of my refund for State out of the Federal return and then when I filed my state I had to pay again with a credit card to get the State to process. Its been over three weeks and still don’t have my State return
