Seven days ago, I filed my federal and state income taxes.
Expecting refunds, I chose to have them directly deposited to my ING Direct account. I logged in this morning, and I have ALREADY received my state income tax refund. The state of Georgia Department of Revenue is “on the ball”! Both of my refunds will be deposited into my recently depleted Emergency Fund.
My Georgia income tax refund was less than $50. Last year, my refund took about three weeks to process, so you can imagine how shocked I was to see my 2006 refund processed so quickly. It would be interesting to get a look “behind-the-scenes” and see exactly how they process the thousands of returns they receive.
I wonder how long it will take for the IRS to process my refund. (As a side note: Don’t we have enough smart people in this country so that we could simplify this entire process? Why does our tax code have to be so complex / complicated?)
