Federal return pending

My taxes are showing as Federal return pending.  How can I check status or get an update?

Pending or Processing?

If Pending, when did you e-file the tax return?  It can take from 24 to 72 hours after filing before the tax return will either be Accepted or Rejected by the tax authority.

Pending simply means that your e-filed return is on its way and that the government hasn't accepted or rejected it yet.

 

After the tax return has been Accepted by the IRS (meaning only that they received the return) it will be in the Processing mode until the tax refund has been Approved and then an Issue Date will be available on the IRS website.

It says pending.  I filed prior to the deadline.

If you e-filed before July 15, 2020 and the status of the tax return is still showing as Pending and Not Processing then you need to contact TurboTax support for assistance.
