Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I filed my tax return over 21 days ago, got it accepted by TurboTax, but still haven't received anything. IRS says it hasn't been approved yet- why so long?

It's my first ever IRS US tax return application since I never worked in the US before, BTW.

The IRS says they send refunds in 21 days for 9 out of 10 efiled returns. The date is an estimate, an educated guess, a rough idea. In other words, it should not be relied on. The IRS can not say how long that other 1 of the 10 will take. All you can do now is, wait. Wait for the pay off of your interest free loan to the government. Did you believe that the IRS is omnipotent, omnibenevolent and omniscient ?
