How will I find out if the IRS received my papers?

After e-filing, your federal or state return may sit in Pending status 24-48 hours before its status changes.

We'll send you an email when your return goes from pending status to Accepted or Rejected.

You can also find out if the government received your return by checking your e-file status.

Did you e-file or mail your income tax returns?

fore1963:
Did you print, sign, and mail the return?  TurboTax does not mail it for you.
How long has it been since you filed by mail?   And are you due a Federal refund?

If you are due a Federal refund, then about 4 weeks after you mail your paper return, it should show up in this "Where's My Refund" tool at the IRS website:

Normally if you file by mail a paper return that is due a Federal refund, it takes approximately 6 weeks to get the refund if you chose direct deposit.
