Has anyone else filed in mid February and not received their return yet?

yes, and just got back from a trip to texas where everything is open. Stopped by the IRS center there. Claim they are processing all stimulus first. I filed on feb 18th, they accepted on 19th, got my state refund on march 10th, as of today the 24th federal still 'processing'. I need that 5k to buy seeds! Its planting weather!

A lot of taxpayers are in the same situation as you due to the IRS backlog right now. Although The IRS issues most refunds from e-filed returns in about 21 days, some returns take more time to review. In addition, the IRS is processing millions of returns, as well as stimulus checks, and they are doing everything they can to be as prompt as possible. 

 

To find out where your refund is, first check your e-file status. If it's been accepted, you can begin to track your refund at the IRS Where's My Refund? site. You'll need your Social Security number or ITIN, filing status, and the exact amount of your refund to check your status.

 

For some taxpayers, PATH Act requirements and other identity-protection safeguards implemented by the IRS may account for longer wait times.

 

Other things that can delay your refund include, but are not limited to:

  • Errors, inconsistencies, or missing information
  • Identity fraud
  • Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, which can take 11-14 weeks to process

Also, if you chose direct deposit, your financial institution may need another day or two to post the refund to your account, so keep that in mind.
