What can cause a delay in my North Carolina refund?

A number of things could cause a delay in receiving your North Carolina refund, including the following:

  • Math errors in your return or other adjustment. If the adjustment causes a change to your refund amount, you will receive a notice.
  • You used more than one form type to complete your return. The form type is identified in the top left corner of your return. Your state tax returned for you to complete using the correct form type.
  • Your return was missing information or incomplete. Sometimes returns are missing information such as signatures, ID numbers, bank account information, W-2s, or 1099s. Your state return may be returned to you. You must complete the correct form type before your return can be processed.
