Did anyone else file on 2/24

Just wondering if anyone else did the e-file online 2/24 and was also accepted the same day. Just wanting to get a feeler out there if anyone has gotten theirs yet. My mom got hers pretty quickly, so I'm just making sure I'm okay since the where's my refund tool on the irs page isn't updating for most tax payers.

You are always going to find someone else whose refund arrived faster, and someone who waited even longer than you.  That is the way it goes. Returns are not processed “first in — first out.”


TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.  Many refunds are taking longer during the pandemic. 



First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted: 



 If accepted, they try to process it within three weeks but it can be longer.  if you have earned income credit or additional child tax credit, it will be at least the end of February before you see your refund, due to the PATH act that requires that they hold your refund longer.


Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control.  TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.

You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 34of your 2020 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:   


To track your state refund:    




If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.

Mine was filed and accepted 2/12. Been pending ever since. I even ordered my transcript to try and see where I stood. There’s still not even any record of 2020 taxes because they have not been processed yet. It seems many many people are still waiting and they picked a bunch of people to give refunds to and the rest of us are just stuck. Waiting. And waiting. And waiting. I’ve tried calling multiple times just to be put on hold and eventually hung up on. I’m going to try again tomorrow. I’ve been following up everywhere and we are not alone. Hang in there. Let’s hope we get this soon. 
we may even receive our next stimulus before our refunds . Now isn’t that some crap!
