I filed taxes on 03/22/20 and they were accepted on 03/23/20 but still haven’t received taxes or my stimulus, has anyone had this problem and got it?

There are lots of delayed federal refunds this year.

 

The IRS is short staffed; and they are processing millions of tax returns at the same time that they have been burdened with the task of processing millions of stimulus checks. 

 

To check on regular tax refund status via automated phone, call 800-829-1954. (This line has no information on Economic Impact Payments.)

 

 

https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/efile-status-lookup/

TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.  Many refunds are taking longer during the pandemic. 

 

Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control. TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.

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:

If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.

To call the IRS:IRS:  800-829-1040  hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Mon-Fri

Listen to each menu before making the selection.

First choose your language. Press 1 for English.

Then do NOT choose the first choice re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.

Instead, press 2 for "personal income tax".

Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".  

Then press 3 "for all other questions."

Then press 2 "for all other questions."  It should then transfer you to an agent.

 

The IRS can look at your 2018 or 2019 return to issue a stimulus check.  If they do not have a 2018 return then you may be waiting for them to finish processing 2019 before they will be able to use it to issue your stimulus check.

 

 

TurboTax has no control over your stimulus check, nor can TT track it for you or tell you when the IRS will issue it. Refer to the sites linked below:

You can call the IRS hotline at 1-800-919-9835 to get updates on your stimulus payment.

The stimulus check is an advance on a credit you can receive on your 2020 tax return.  If something went wrong or you did not get the stimulus check this year, you can get it when you file your 2020 return in early 2021—if you are eligible.

My wife an I pay our taxes yearly and because we dont allow anyone to attach to our bank accounts is my theory, we still have not received our $2400 in stimulus. Meanwhile I am an essential worker, and have watched people spending theirs like it was vacation money at hotels I maintenance. It is appalling. It has almost been a year, and i wonder why TurboTax is not offering to file the 1046/ 1046a or what ever it is called to get people their checks?

As I suspected. SO it is not a GIFT, like they have given tax dodging companies (fortune 500's) it is a loan in lean against our 2020 tax return. This is priceless. These companies dodge taxes, they won't pay anything back in, they didn't pay in to begin with. Taxation without representation at its finest.

Only the IRS controls when or if a stimulus payment is distributed.  TurboTax is not involved in any way.

You can get the Recovery Rebate Credit (stimulus payment) when filing the 2020 Federal tax return Form 1040.  The credit is entered on Line 30 of the Form 1040.

Using TurboTax the program asks about the stimulus payment in the Federal Review section of the program.

It is not a loan.  The Stimulus Check is really based on your 2020 return we are filing in 2021.  So any amount you already got will be reconciled on your 2020 return line 30.  If you qualify for more it will be added to your return.  But the good news is if they paid you too much they won't take it back.

 

See this thread, it has good information and a screen shot
