I filed on February 1st, and this week I received my refund from the state of Georgia in the mail. It was supposed to be DIRECT DEPOSIT! I am currently awaiting my Florida income tax refund. Not sure if it will be DIRECT DEPOSIT or mail. I told my tax preparer DD for my FLORIDA AND GEORGIA refund. I am not sure why my Georgia tax refund was mailed on February 14th. I received the mail in a shorter time frame than the direct deposit that hopefully is going to my band account tomorrow! I called my tax preparer and she told me that she has no idea why this is happening, and that her system says Direct Deposit. I claimed no kids and I do not qualify for EITC.
