Can you tell me why my status of my federal return and state return is still pending? It usually takes a couple hours to be accepted.

The IRS just officially starting accepting returns today. Give them another couple of days to clear the backlog. Once accepted, the IRS says to then allow 21 days.

Give it some more time. It will take some time to process the backlog of returns. More details regarding your pending return has been provided below. https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/return-status/help/what-does-pending-mean/00/26331
