You can use the "Where's My Refund" website 4 weeks after mailing your return.  Refunds must first be approved before the IRS will issue them.

Thank you for the help. Sadly, it is telling me that it cannot find my tax return. Thank you again

Sometimes people get confused by the “summary” given by TurboTax and use the wrong amount for the federal refund.  Make sure you are only using the federal refund amount, and not an amount that combined your federal and state refunds.
