Did you know that you can check to see when your California Tax Refund was authorized and when you should get it in the mail or in your bank account? Visit the California refund status center for a date when your tax refund was authorized.
No IOUs from the California State Tax Board
If you have already filed your tax return you should get an authorization date shortly. If you have not filed your tax return, the news states you will be authorized within 2 to 3 weeks after your return is approved. The sooner you get your California State Tax Return filed, the sooner you will get your money. Especially if California runs out of money again.
