How will we know if you received our paper return?

The IRS asks that you wait 4 weeks before checking on the status your paper return. After the 4 week period, the IRS will receive it and begin processing your return. This IRS FAQ page is helpful too. https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/5340655

How will we know if you received our paper return?

You mailed tax return goes directly to the IRS, never to TurboTax.

There are a few ways you can track your tax return. It may take up to 4 weeks for mailed returns to have a status online with the IRS for you to be able to check.

If you file a paper tax return, and have chosen a paper check in the mail, your refund should be issued in about six to eight weeks
