Do I know if my taxes were accepted or do I need to try and file again?

I was not able to E-file before, but now Turbo Tax is saying that my taxes are done. How do I know if the e-file went through?

Do I know if my taxes were accepted or do I need to try and file again?

Did you e-file your tax return and was it accepted?
Only the IRS and your State control when and if a Federal or State tax refund is Approved and Issued.


You complete your tax return by finishing all 3 Steps in the File section. In Step 3, to e-file your tax return, you must click on the large Orange button labeled "Transmit my returns now".


After completing the File section and e-filing your tax return you will receive two emails from TurboTax. The first email when your tax return was transmitted and the second email when the tax return has either been accepted or rejected.


Did you receive an email from TurboTax indicating the tax return was either Accepted or Rejected.  If not in your email Inbox check your spam or junk mail folders.

If your account says Printed or Ready to Mail that means you have to actually print out your tax return and mail it to the IRS yourself.  If you have not mailed it yet you can try to switch to efile.

In TurboTax Online, sign in to your account.
Select Tax Home in the left menu.
Scroll down to Your tax returns & documents.
Select 2022, and then select Add a State (you're not actually adding a state, this just gets you back into your return).
