How long does it take to get the FTB to return bank levied money after you file tax return

Asked over 1 year ago - Isleton, CA

The FTB(ca) levied my bank acct. 10 days ago. my CPA filed my state tax return yesterday(i had zero liability for the state), how long will it take the state to return my money. Does it go directly to the bank from which they took it. or do they issue me a check and send to my house. I realize the state was in the right, because i had not filed my return.

    Answered . I agree with Attorney Nielsen; the FTB does not move quickly. You'll most likely get a check in the mail.
