When you mail a tax return to the IRS it takes about four weeks before you can see anything on the IRS site about the status of your refund.  

 

You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 20 of your Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:

To track your state refund:

I've mailed my taxes on February 5, 2020 as well as included the pin number that was established. How can I find out the status of my refund.

If you are expecting a refund you can check the IRS website Where's My Refund 4 weeks after mailing your return.

http://www.irs.gov/Refunds

If you are not expecting a refund tracking your return can be a little more complicated.  You can use the IRS's new online transcript request option to tell when your return has been processed.  Once the return shows up in the transcript request the IRS has received and processed your return.  Before that time it will show that you have not filed for the year.  You can also judge by when the IRS processes your payment (if a tax payment was sent/due)

http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript

After 2-3 weeks have passed you may also call the IRS customer service line at 1 800 829 1040 to inquire regarding the status of your return.

TurboTax will not know anything about your mailed return, and will continue to show “Ready to Mail” on your account.  TurboTax will not know that you put your tax return in an envelope and took it to a mailbox.  TurboTax does not get updates on mailed  (or emailed) returns.

 

Wait about 4 weeks from when you mail a return and then you can check the status on the IRS site. https://www.irs.gov/refunds

 

State returns have to be mailed to the state.

In the future, if you mail a tax return (or a payment) to the IRS, it is a good idea to use a mailing service that will track it like UPS or certified mail so you will know it was received.

You should be receiving your refund within 4-6 weeks from mailing it. The IRS asks that you wait at least 4 weeks before you track your return through Where's My Refund?

Please see the article below for more details.
