MY RETURN IS IN PENDING—what does that mean?

 

Did you e-file?  Did you click that big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?”  If so, your return is now in “pending” on a server.  Do not try to change anything while your return is in pending. If your return is rejected you will be able to make corrections before re-filing.

 

The IRS will not be accepting/rejecting 2020 returns until Friday, February 12, 2021.  You need to watch your emails for the acceptance/rejection notice that may take until mid-February or later to arrive.   And watch your spam folder too.

 

When you e-file your federal return you will receive two emails from TurboTax.  The first one will say that your return was submitted.  The second email will tell you if your federal return was accepted or rejected.  If you e-filed a state return, there will be a third email to tell you if the state accepted or rejected your state return.

 

A state return cannot be accepted until the federal return has been accepted.

We do not know if entering the wrong stimulus amount will delay your refund --- or for how long if it does.   The IRS has not offered any guidance yet on how they will handle returns that have incorrect stimulus amounts entered.  We all just have to wait and see.

All you can do now is wait.   If the IRS adjusts your refund, you won't need to do anything.   But if they don't and you receive the double payment, you will need to file an amended return.  The amendment process won't be available until the end of March.   So, if you do receive the full amount of your refund, come back after you receive it and you will be able to e-file an amendment then.    @Mattinky65

Turbo Tax will not have a status on your refund. If the IRS website says processing, this means they are working on it.

To anyone....I've been seeing posts that the IRS Adjusted your refund for the Stimulus payments you already got but didn't report.

They fix it for you! I did the same exact thing. And got a notice they fixed it and they send you a letter in the mail. Took an extra week than the original estimated refund date though!
