delay in receiving refund due on amended return

January 20, 2017 • Jerald Otchis • Log In to Post Comments

I filed amedned federal and state amended returns for 2015 in early May of 2016.  The amended returns which wree substantial, were filed to correct an overstatement of capaital gain on the sale of the taxpayers business. The federal refund was received in early January of 2014.  I check with the FTB hotline in late November aned was told that the return had been processed and the refund should be received in 45 days.  I called back yesteday and was told that the amended return was referred to the audit section on October 10th and processing could take up to 15 months.Question--is there a california taxpayer advocate or anyone else I could contact to try to speed up the process?  Thank you.  Jerry Otchis
